The Daily Noontime is officially back – yay!
Yes, we’re back – we missed you, but we’re excited to kickstart your mornings (and sometimes early afternoons, too) with some news and links from the sports and tech world.
As usual, we hope this post finds everyone doing well, staying safe, and holding the line – we’re almost there, we promise!
Alright, let’s get after it with today’s Daily Noontime – have a great day, everyone!
Enjoy a brand new Noontime Sports Podcast featuring Seth Cantor and Kevin Tuve. Seth and Kevin, who work for the New York Boulders baseball team in the Frontier League, share some early thoughts on how both the team (and players, coaches, and front office staff) are preparing for a return to play later this spring and summer.
Monday’s Headlines (Jan. 25 2021)
- Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are headed to the Super Bowl after beating the Green Bay Packers yesterday in the NFC Championship.
- The Buccaneers are the first team to play for a Super Bowl title in their home stadium – crazy, right?
- Believe it or not, Tom Brady will be competing in his tenth Super Bowl next month, which again seems crazy, but he is clearly one of the best to play professional football. And that is a fact!
- According to the Boston Globe‘s Dan Shaughnessy, Tom Brady beat Bill Belichick by a score of 1-0.
- Following yesterday’s setback to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Aaron Rodgers told the media that his future with the Green Bay Packers is ‘uncertain.’ Could A-Rod consider changing teams this offseason? It’s possible, according to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.
- For the second-straight season, the Kansas City Chiefs have won the Lamar Hunt Trophy as the Red, White, and Yellow outlasted the Buffalo Bills last night in the AFC Championship.
- The Miami Heat are planning to bring back fans to future games with some help from some dogs.
- The University of Michigan is pressing the pause button on sports due to a recent Covid-19 outbreak. And this particular news is certainly why “multiple conference commissioners” are both anxious and worried about future pauses or shutdowns over the next few weeks.
- And finally, the San Jose Sharks‘ first two home games of the 2020-21 season will be played in Arizona.
