We’re coming to you a bit later than normal – yes, we know it is almost 2 p.m. (eastern time), but we do have some news to share. And it begins with the Summer Olympics, which have been postponed.
The games will be postponed but will be played no later than the summer of 2021. And the reason, of course,
is due to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
Tom Brady was introduced today as a new member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers – the former New England Patriots signal-caller was peppered with questions during an introductory conference call. If you missed it, the Bucs did upload the press conference to their YouTube channel. Yesterday, we unveiled another All-Decade team, highlighting a slew of
Massachusetts D-III football players that competed in the Bay State from 2010 to 2019. Earlier today, we unveiled our
Worcester Area College Basketball Association (WACBA) postseason honors for both men’s basketball and women’s basketball.
We’ll be back tomorrow with a longer ‘Daily Noontime,’ but continue to be well and stay safe, friends!

Daily Noontime from your friends at Noontime Nation!
