Good morning and welcome to The Huddle for today, December 10, 2020. It’s Thursday. Hanukkah begins at sundown tonight and lasts for eight crazy nights, as Adam Sandler sang. Happy Hanukkah to all who celebrate (and no, there’s no “right” way to spell the name of the holiday... except maybe חנוכה).
Your need to read time today is 90-seconds, as usual.

Happy #RainbowLaces Day everyone!— Tom Bosworth (@TomBosworth) December 9, 2020
Sport doesn’t judge who you are and that’s why I’m so proud to see @BritAthletics continued support for #RainbowLaces campaign, as we are still in a world where so many in sport can’t be who they truly are and likely holding back their potential! https://t.co/rLpDtss0b7
