A Sunday With No Football!!!

Really? There’s no football?

It is a weird feeling today! For the first time since August we do not have a game to watch. I know there are Sunday’s when your favorite team doesn’t play because of the bye week or SNF, MNF or TNF, but I always watch a game. WHAT DO I DO NOW? TALK TO THE FAMILY???

 

WHEN WILL IT END?

The series about Tom Brady titled “Tom vs. Time” has been put on “pause” after the Patriots’ loss in Super Bowl LII. Diirector Gotham Chopra announced Friday that while they had good footage, the events of the Super Bowl caused him to rethink. He wanted one final interview, which he said he got Friday morning. The series has aired on Facebook Watch and chronicled Brady’s 2017 season and journey. “As a fan, I can say I got some great closure and I hope Tom did too in just talking about it,” Chopra said. “I can tell he’s burning up still on the inside. But I am also reminded why the guy is the GOAT and it’s all gonna be OK.” There is no date for the release, instead Chopra said it’s “coming soon.”

 

BLUE LIGHT SPECIAL

Boston’s skyline is being illuminated in blue to support a local children’s hospital. City Hall, the Zakim Bridge, the Prudential Tower, the TD Garden and dozens of other city landmarks are turning on blue lights on Thursday to show support for Boston’s Children’s Hospital. More than 35 skyscrapers and structures will light up in the hospital’s signature color when a patient flips a switch at sunset. Candles will also be placed in the window of every patient at the hospital.The hospital says the lighting and a related fundraising campaign are meant to provide young patients with “hope and light” during the dark days of winter. Boston Children’s Hospital was founded in 1869 and is one of the nation’s leading institutions for pediatric treatment and research.

NATIONAL PEPPERMINT PATTY DAY
In the United States, as early as 1900, peppermint patties were made by regional confectioneries.

York Peppermint Pattie’s were first made in 1940 and distributed regionally much like other candy makers of the era.  York dominated the market because of its firmness and crispness while the others were soft. A former York employee remembered that the final (sample) test of the patty before it left the factory was called a “snap test.”  If the candy did not break clean in the middle, it did not make it onto candy store shelves.

NATIONAL SHUT IN VISITATION DAY
