Happy Monday, everyone – we hope you ALL had a great weekend!
Let’s kickstart the new week (and yes, Monday, as well), with a brand new edition of the Daily Noontime.
Have a great day, everyone!
In The News:
- Don’t put away those winter jackets just yet as another cold blast is sweeping the country and heading toward the six New England states.
- Good news, New England Patriots fans: Tom Brady says there is ‘zero’ chance he retires after the Super Bowl next Sunday.
- Bill Belichick was named the head coach of the Patriots 19 years ago as of yesterday. But do you remember what the experts thought? Neither do we, so luckily there is a good piece on what they thought 19 years ago from Boston.com.
- This past Saturday, Joseph Girard III accomplished something no high school basketball player has done in New York high school hoops history. He netted his 4,000th career point this past weekend in a 78-74 win over Amsterdam (N.Y.). Girard finished with 52 points and will continue his career at Syracuse University next school year.
- Brianna Decker is going to get paid for winning the Premier Passing drill competition at last Friday’s NHL All-Star Skills competition. Decker beat out Edmonton Oilers‘ Leon Draisaitl by roughly three seconds but did not receive a check from the NHL for finishing first in the event. So instead, CCM is going to pay Decker for winning the competition – a lot of credit goes to those that helped #PayDecker through social media.
In Case You Missed It (ICYMI):
- On Saturday, the Bowdoin College women’s basketball team scored an impressive yet important win over Amherst College to remain undefeated in the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC), but also the top team in both New England and the country.
Video of the Day: Just in case you didn’t watch the AFC vs. NFC, here are the highlights, courtesy of the NFL’s YouTube channel!
