In today’s blog post, we take a look at the month ahead and highlight three events that we expect to make headlines in September.
- The 2021 NFL season will begin on Thursday, Sept. 9 with a match-up between the Dallas Cowboys and the defending Super Bowl champions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After a 2020 season marked with empty stadiums and postponements due to COVID-19 outbreaks, the league is expecting full stadiums at games this season but remains “willing to adapt.”
- Sept. 11 will mark the 20th anniversary of the worst terrorist attacks on American soil in U.S. history. Each year on Sept. 11, the families of 9/11 victims gather for a ceremony on the 9/11 Memorial plaza to read aloud the names of the nearly 3,000 people killed and to observe six moments of silence marking when each World Trade Center tower was struck, when the attack was made on the Pentagon and when Flight 93 crashed. The events of 9/11 will forever be etched in the memory of those old enough to remember the day.
- A hearing to end Britney Spears’ conservatorship, a court-appointed arrangement that has controlled her career and finances since 2008, is scheduled for Sept. 29. Spears first addressed the court in June, calling the conservatorship “abusive” and urging a Los Angeles judge to put an end to it. According to newly-filed court documents, Spears’ father, who has controlled his daughter’s conservatorship for the past decade, is seeking $2 million in payments before he would step down.
