Had to go to court. Rory hearing on an outstanding drug charge. He brought with him is four year old my call. Okay. Very big red bird Egbert big red bird it's it's initially DB camp talks so the commitment I do you know. That the first reason that I am putting Craig doctor in the well. With people miles because he decided to leave his bird. In a tree outside. The Washington County courthouse. Indoor game when he went in for court. There's probably told him oberg. He had no lightly the DM bird at home on her that's the first thing that put him in the the second one is you what is bird's name is. Rather now with bird bird. Could come up with anything better for a berth in the name bird bird. Today as a second here's the third reason while he was waiting for his name to be call to appear before the judge. Greg Buckner Phyllis. And did that here is okay. The third reason is in the team while it's better. Because I was asleep and did not wake up when they repeatedly call his name the judge ordered he be drug tested right there. Guess one positive needs failed could act acts. Or threes. Now. That put the cuffs on him because he's in violation. And taken to jail and he's freaking out because. Bird is in the tree outside of the court. And he was afraid it would survive overnight in the tree because at that tropical arid and it's wintertime. Deputies did eventually let Buckner go outside. Get the bird vacant one of the restraint I'm. Let him get bird out of the trio. Landed on his shoulders so they took his mug shot with bird. On his soul.

In some areas and that's that rain came down quickly it went away relatively quickly as well but it created the momentary problem. Minor street flooding issues yesterday but nothing we can't handle Ross area but I'll talk awkward dry out today kind of breezy cool start today. But the temperature in the fifties right now in orbit the mid sixties after new book with the cloud that currently around for the better part of the economy. The axis clouds now and then now optics of the upper level of northwest line.

Strong coal ports can do through. Just look at for a litmus of Miami is a strong gold what you mean age draw I'd be cold strong cold front now.

And the temperatures will fall to well maybe three disease haven't brisket out there so we'll start opposite showers through the morning commute sunshine by the afternoon. Early highs in the upper fifties fall into the forties yet and we clear out Thursday night. Dropping to 28 on the course when 35 on the cell shall we connection at frost now delay well it's going to be windy.

You don't feel like Taiwanese everywhere across southeast Louisiana that we. And then by the afternoon on Friday the court is still a lot of sunshine high only forty and you read colonial and hit fifty and 150 is gonna feel like thirties with the wind chill out there now and then. We did you come down Friday night starting point that's we could see some frost on the porch or in the South Shore twenties in the upper twenties north that's in the upper thirties themselves or the. Like on Saturday morning I'm gonna keep track of all this is it to OJ every day. The sixty. Answer.

And they do that there right and apparently. Had dropped his cell phone. Right before getting on the train. And in the train took off. So what do you think Eric Jones decided to do. About his accidentally dropped so. For now pull the emergency stop on the train. Yes. This guy's gonna screw up everyone's schedule. All the train schedules require the entire tract to come to a halt. Because he wanted to pick up his phone. The stoppage caused travel delays of up to fifteen minutes on several lines during the heart of the morning commute. From New Jersey to New York since a south. Yes he's been criticized for reckless behavior. And he risk you apparently did jump out of the train and down onto the tracks to pick up the phone after pulling the emergency. You charged with defiant trespass. And interfering with transportation. I'm not distressed batsman defiant. Threats. They were talking about staying awake while driving a new study find to be at less than seven hours of sleep which country you always get seven hours with a baby at home and working the radio in New York.

At it and seeing these people doing this stuff screaming slapping themselves. Do incumbent banks bank today with the IKEA shortly with another forecast at WW. It's Steve Geller with sports. Thanks very good morning everybody there who detonation some eggs have been in not this season as the five and seven saints have been inconsistent but yet still alive for post season contention entering the fourth quarter of the season. Cornerback Adobe rose says for what ever reason the team like energy last game at have to find a way to get fired up for their final four contest starting Sunday in Tampa Bay. You know you hear frustration on saga FaceBook. That can't stop we have to continue keep up to you never know who may lose these next you know upcoming weeks so that's something we just focus on winning these next games and hopefully we did make. The saints have wasted opportunities over the last few games the Buccaneers have surged winning four straight to own a share of the NFC south lead with the falcons. The Indianapolis Colts are part of a three way tie for first place in the AFC south. Following their dismantling of the New York Jets on Monday Night Football. Shotgun snap the one drop back three shuffled his feet short film about. Diving catch made in the end zone the heavily Woburn monthly get the ball dug it up bring your touched on them. Andrew Luck I was 2228. For 278. Yards and four touchdowns in 841 to ten a laugher at the meadowlands the outcome leads the colts Texans and titans to 66 heading into the final month of the season. Want to know what surprised a lot of Cornet has announced she will bypass his senior season and enter the NFL draft following Ellis you've bowl game against woeful. How high could go running back be selected well WWL draft guru Mike affiliate feels that the top overall spot is an out of the question. This year there is no. Water back. In two days with gesture of our guys the first overall. It may end up in a battle. Weight limit order. Out there are subject. And in a battle between two shorthanded team is the grizzlies came out on top 110 to one away in double overtime over the intelligence Marc Gasol had a triple double from Memphis and hit the game tying three pointer with seven seconds left in regulation. Today apple on sports talk to Bobby Hebert and Deke Bellavia. If your letter format would you play in the Citrus Bowl plus why is energy and issue for the saints. Then at 7 PM will go around the league in the NFL I'm Steve Geller with early morning look at the sport. Give any idea why the saints can't halves consistent energy is or something missing this this and not an emotional leader is that it. Not a good pregame chance and a what what is at its keep in the sense of having that emotion to start a game. You know it's I agree I think and a great and valid question just because there was a lot of I guess you would say talk of that they were able to get up for this game against. The previous week against LA rams because of Gregg Williams is back in town so the emotion was there and how could they bottle that and carry that into next game with so much on the line. And yet they came out flat this Sunday at home to a team they they could have. You know easily beaten I think it's just the Detroit had more of the confidence right now to meet I think the saints are still. A young team learning and finding their way but dumb yet built the lack of energy is deathly perplexing to me and I can't put it.
