Welcome to Thursday, everyone!
And for those hanging out out on Reddit and discussing Game Stop, thanks for taking a break from day trading to read our Daily Noontime – we appreciate the support (as always!).
As usual, we hope everyone is doing well, staying safe, and holding the line – we’re almost there, so please remain calm! And in the meantime … let’s dish out today’s Daily Noontime for Thursday, January 29.
Have a great day, everyone, and enjoy the flurries (like we did earlier this morning) in Boston.
Thursday’s Headlines (January 28, 2021)
- Game Stop was in the headlines all day yesterday, so let’s get caught-up and understand exactly what happened on Reddit, as well as the stock market, too.
This was a crazy story to follow – perhaps we see more twists and turns later today?
- The National Women’s Hockey League (NWHL) gained some eyeballs yesterday (and earlier this week) for firing back at Barstool Sports CEO Erika Nardini, who apparently “called out her critics” in a Twitter video that many have watched over the past few days.
The NWHL began a two-week sprint to its Isobel Cup last Saturday in upstate New York – the league is currently in its sixth season since they initially dropped the puck in 2015.
- We learned last night that the Houston Texans have hired David Culley as their next head coach, which leaves many, including us here at Noontime Sports, wondering why once again Kansas City Chiefs coordinator Eric Bieniemy did not get a head coaching role for the second-straight season?
- Tom Brady is dominating the National Football League (NFL) the same way LeBron James is doing it as a member of the National Basketball Association (NBA).
- Tenga, which owns 64 television stations, has acquired the Locked On podcast network, which features 160 shows on professional and college sports.
Make sure to listen to our latest podcast episode – today, we welcomed Kolby Castillo, who is the founder and podcast host of Sports As A Job. Listen to the show on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Anchor.
