Happy Wednesday, everyone – hope you’re in a good mood like we are here at Noontime Sports!
Sure, it is a chilly day outside here in Boston, but the good news is a semi heatwave is on the way, which means we are another day closer to spring and no more snow – woo!
In the meantime, let’s get you caught up on some news for the day, as well as what happened last night in Boston sports.
As usual, have a great day, smile, be nice and plan something fun for later or this weekend!
The Boston Sports Scoreboard
The Boston Bruins picked-up their 29th win last night by edging the Vegas Golden Knights by a score of 3-2. With the win, the Black and Gold have won two of their last three and three of their last six outings. Boston will be off until next Friday, January 31st due to the National Hockey League (NHL) All-Star Game this upcoming weekend.
The Boston Celtics return to the hardwood this evening when they host the Memphis Grizzlies with tip-off scheduled for 7:30 p.m. The Celtics scored an exciting win on Monday, defeating the Los Angeles Lakers which should provide the Green and White with some serious momentum going forward.

It’s back, everyone – the Daily Noontime has officially returned and is not going to disappear anytime soon!
We’ll have some fun with our Monday through Friday post, sharing news and links, along with some videos, podcasts, and music, so we hope you’re ready for the re-vamped (and 2020 version of one of our oldest and favorite) posts.
So, enjoy our first of many Daily Noontime‘s – as always, thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend, everyone, and we will be back next Monday, January 20th, 2020!
Noontime Nation returns with a short (and quick) podcast hosted by editor and founder, Matt Noonan.
In Matt’s first ‘Noontime Take’ of 2020, he dishes out some thoughts on Boston Red Sox manager – well, the team’s current skipper – Alex Cora, and that he should either be fired or resign with an impending suspension (and maybe more?) coming.
Noonan shares a few tweets during the podcast from a few media folks, as well as highlights a recent article penned by Boston Globe columnist, Dan Shaughnessy, who is in agreement with Noonan about Cora being let go by the Sox.

NESN.com’s Lauren Campbell joined our first Noontime Nation Podcast for 2020 to discuss a few Boston sports topics for early January, including Tom Brady being a free agent to the Boston Celtics struggling against teams below them in the standings.

Before we kick-off, a brand new year (and decade) of blogging, editor and founder Matt Noonan shared some thoughts on the blog while also reflecting on how this platform provided him an opportunity to pursue his love of sports, content creation, and video and podcast production.
Noontime Sports launched in 2009 in a Wheaton College (Mass.) dorm room but has become a go-to for New England college and high school sports fan, along with our favorite die-hards of the Boston Bruins, Boston Celtics, Boston Red Sox, and New England Patriots. The site has covered multiple games and events over the past year (and decade), including contests at Gillette Stadium, Fenway Park, and the TD Garden.
In addition to game coverage, Noonan (and colleagues and friends) have produced a variety of features and podcasts – we even hosted a radio show, too – while creating some entertaining (and enjoyable) videos for our YouTube channel.
We’re excited for the upcoming year and next decade of blogging and podcasting, along with some video production, too, and hope you will enjoy Noonan’s reflection on what he has built.
