It's not the secret in eighty it's not that side. If it's in the batter. Absolutely. They think they test it yeah yeah man that I wanted her brownies unit. This man may connect right now but we're not make it the forecast because you'll need that umbrella handy without. Several days actually you know it's it's quite a moment inland it's coastal showers but. All it can't take it will sign that little heat today and storms pop up pretty quickly that keep the umbrella close by at 50% chance of rain today. About 60% chance tomorrow and then 50% for Thursday and Friday in Denver at least the rest of the work week. Scattered downpours will be out there. And he's not quite as hot aren't quite.

So Golan Heights in mid to upper eighties for the next couple of days just depending on where that rain maybe at the OK so we'll keep my eye on them have a umbrella are you keeping an eye out on the topic that we think the report always yeah I'm not much going on my mother -- -- porous it lot of tropical moisture in the Caribbean at the bit wet for those that may be traveling Greg came under Jamaica or even into parts of the island that had east of there in this decrease seized and then you know vacation season. Nothing developing it's just the moisture out there that's creating some rainfall that I think it track it looks quiet. We'll get ahead in the models you know we can go out about seven to ten engagement. That showing anything at that showing signs development close to home so that's that it knew he wrote I'll take it out take I'd get a ride. A couple of quick think of asking our listeners are texting us do you gear in the for the sake of just giving do you view of knowing that you'll get something in return but there is attending the value against you hardly rate that Q.

She had this big announcement planned. On Good Morning America yesterday. All's you do it was jazz anger and take off for fans I don't and a lot of fans got up early went to catch her exclusive in much type. Your quote here announcement. On Good Morning America Hollywood has bombed out the find out that it was a three minute and 52 segment that was taped. In beyoncé was simply telling everyone she was not following a beacon to. I.

Yeah also the base side effects that they Alfredsson chipped out well I don't know it was taped so you know they like Cade. I'm getting up early for them. So that would go without my question yes I am old eyes and yet I feel like I can make fun would it be not say she took the announcement or was that these televisions at the air high speed up and say. Is this announcement from beyond day but beyond that we're because of in the media too frightening them overzealous. Producer are brighter day. App via an idol that happy that we I PM.

Kind of you know hyping it up and yet that's currently but it it's just that he shares which way we do it out shock there are no. And apparently plain beat that she probably not going. I need to take the yeah. And that must be like okay they'll put the producer of the show Purdue in the what is I don't know enough about it that I didn't watch its back and watch at the thinking suspicion just.

And its allies Lenovo to thank you so much so advocate as the U tube of the I hit a meteorologist Laura but it was also have been wise persons that would go to her every time me dinner. Answers to life. Questions and I answered the talking about some marijuana laced brownies whether or not this in elderly lady did it she did not. I don't put marijuana in my brownies but he's my secret. And Rome. Yum yum yum absolutely. Well it's been a good earn a few days for Alec fragments of a talking about him where is he going neck with find out but Ron Amadon in the sports at the. Good morning Alex Greg has become the second highest LSU player to ever be selected in the MLB draft after the Houston Astros used the second overall pick snagged shortstop. There are some scouts at the believable make a better second baseman in the pros and Greg man isn't too sure about that. We'll play second that's fine of a police source that's fine I just wanna help my team win and a deadly failure of play shortstop. It took sixteen innings but TCU finally got past Texas a and M five to four. The horned frogs advance to Omaha Campbell faced LSU and both teams opening game while the tigers are known from smashing the ball this year the pitching staff. Has really carried the ball fumbled late coach pulmonary just happy that they're willing to do what ever it takes to earn the victory. We're gonna go to Omaha was very confident team based primarily on our pitching and defense the knowing there were capable. Both scoring runs as well. LSU and TCU will meet on the diamond at 2 o'clock on Sunday. Since Super Bowl hero Tracy Porter signed a one year deal with the Chicago Bears it's his fourth team in as many seasons since playing his first four years in New Orleans. The US won the opener of its woman's World Cup schedule by taking down Australia three to one. Meanwhile Tampa Bay Lightning knocked off Chicago agreed to in taking 21 series lead in the Stanley Cup finals. In the NCAA is playing rules oversight panels approved several changes in men's basketball. They shot clocks been reduced from 35 to thirty seconds and a number of timeouts in the second half as big cup. Fort three. Also the restricted area are in front of the basket has been increased eight foot to four feet. Today a four on sports talk the saints had just seventeen takeaways last year. What's the biggest key to improving net number of plus three. Game three of the NBA finals is tonight who has more pressure on LeBron James or Stefan curry I'm Steve Geller with your early morning look at sports. And second base shortstop what may have read even a play I'm gonna play that position. Yeah I'm sure though in his mind he's thinking and you know what you're you're not moving me from my natural position which is shortstop but I'm sure that the Astros need him to move on over. They'll do just. Buyer and especially with that six to seven million dollar payday. I'm stubborn but not that stubborn about that crazy it is actually just from one side of the diamond to the other so not a big switch. Last few days incredible high for Alex I mean what are you focusing on easy focusing on Omaha Omaha. All what's ahead. As he goes to act the ass to Houston Astros. I just wonder why the MLB draft has to be right smack dab before the college World Series when these kids have so much else on their plate going on. I know he's thinking about bringing in national title back to Baton Rouge. But it's hard not come. Think about that paycheck you're going to be yet now they. You're the second overall pick in the Major League Baseball draft. You've achieved your dream of making it to the pros and dazzle are still a lot of work for him to be done to make it a you know open your Astros organization. I still think though he is that kind of gritty grinder kind of player and will be focused on Omaha right now even though he does have the pros within and with it read. Oh yeah absolutely I'm heading west so because if you don't have a great game. You know great series yet argued to visit bacon about with the way we're focusing can't get much worse form he was over fifteen before he broke out of his slump recently so home hopefully that he had against ULL. We'll just helped propel him forward now in the college World Series and the NCAA is playing rules oversight panel has its sights on several changes in men's basketball a lot of but I can't. Yet folks are happy about it who's gonna speed up the game more men and have more scoring. That problem though to meet with men's college basketball's the fact that. After their freshman year if you're a great player you're going to leave for the pros so you don't really have time to get to know these college kids because they're so young. And coming to the NBA if they are of that star level. Very very fun day and the last couple days in sports yeah a lot going on all that's always something always something XT you have a great today. Well coming up lower but tale has accused the forecast and you call far. And sober driver and you get a defensive tackle off onto the driver you just might get a dolphins maybe Miami Dolphins Miami defensive tackle AJ Francis is driving for the ride sharing service. In his 2014 dots to archer. Why is he doing that he's on the contract I'm more than a half million dollars this year in his third NFL season but. Both paychecks don't stop coming until July fell in April he began driving higher. Making between forty and fifty dollars and at a beauty do I believe in being the queen a king of gain access good for you. Well do you add outside little darling strip club in Vegas it's encouraging recent high school graduates to apply promoting skipping as a way to earn money for college if that is not in freaky. All the saying is now auditioning for the class of 2015 page you wait through college. He says in a struggling economy this is an option for young women entertainers he says that his club. Make up to a thousand dollars a night. And he has noticed more and more women turning that stripping to help with rising college costs are. Have a great day everybody.
