Gushan boards and chat rooms and faith is the reigning wagering is I don't know if there's wagering or not I haven't really noticed that I would be surprised if there weren't. By. I am for the cautiously excited about some of the names I'm hearing floating around out there who me. Be part of the Jazz Fest announcement later this morning. So we'll just have to wait and see on it's all conjecture and rumor and and I don't wanna go there because I don't wanna get people unnecessarily excited.

That it did as a guy who does not come out block the sun comes down. For example or empire.

In most presidents the only hear from a monsters so weak maybe not even that much. And they only make big news periodically but. Every single day since he took office he's making big news would be executive orders are big announcements like this has been eight years you've had a first hundred days of the new president.

You know power groups and amazing classic rock groups I've seen so many of the new performers I love music socio lot of concerts. But those are two I'd just never. And the opportunity took the opportunity to see I'd bring the text messages continued emanates 7870. While we discuss the weekend box office. Currently the top five are split. Xxx reserve every turn of Zander cage hidden figures saying. And allow allow it as we get three competitors in the mix this weekend. Resident Evil the final chapter. Elected. So we have the I dog's purpose this movie was the clear favorite for the weekend and kills someone leaked video. Of a dog trainer and a dog not getting along so well on the scene on the set pardon me. While shooting a scene and some alleging it was animal abuse. And it's got to negative publicity for this movie that they thought dog lovers would flock to you because it's about the life of a dog who. Keeps getting reincarnated as another dog. And you get to meet all the wonderful people that this. Reincarnated dog it's to deal with throughout life side Dennis Quaid among the stars in this one but that negative publicity could hurt it. And coal that goes into wide release nationwide expansion with Matthew muck and days. So when it's all said and done come Monday which of these movies do you think will be number one the. I think split will repeat I've been reading news got ever turned deformed or M night she Amylin and you know not. Much better output than people seem former recently and it hasn't taken back to is you know news signs an unbreakable and sixth sense days rather than. So he's just so a lot of it's disappointing to buzz about. How good split his band especially to those who loves suspense and horror that it may have another weakened it at number one. I'd that's Chris Miller predict strong we will find out Monday morning if he is correct meanwhile. Kraft Heinz. Says the Monday after the Super Bowl is going to be a day off for all of its salaried employees. And it's launch date tongue in cheek campaign to make the day dubbed it's Monday. A national holiday. Should the day after the Super Bowl would be a national holiday while the food processing giant actually didn't come up with the idea. Its employees in Chicago and Pittsburgh started a campaign with as signatures. On a petition trying to convince. The company. To give them a day off after the Super Bowl night of those teams are in the Super Bowl know they are not. But article isn't even into contention at any point this isn't the petition claims that more than sixteen million people call in sick annually. Or just don't show up the day after the Super Bowl because they are. Celebrating partying out in about may be traveling who knows but they say that because of that they sort of the change dot org petition. And launched a web site its so Monday doubt award. Agassi got for the city of the winning team a miniature felt like a holiday after the ball for I doubt many people went to work that day today after the cents on the they were going to work out of the Ashley did and he worked leaders stood around talk about what an awesome game awards but I've loudly and losing this city and the losing team needed to bail out to you. He'll want people you know. Sending heights of tall buildings after seeing their team lose the bathtub. That having been said. I feel like Super Bowl Sunday really is pretty much a national holiday and generally when we have a national holiday iPhone weekend. Companies give their employees to the day to day add yet the Monday. Off so should there be no mail delivery should banks be closed at government offices will be closed. The day after the Super Bowl in observance of the national holiday. Something to contemplate and ponder. I hate I would never refuse another paid day off work I love days off. I think most companies give their employees summer between six and nine paid days off now for different on its threat the year. So what's one more right. Yeah. I don't know the companies agree thank you Chris will consider to contemplate this year WW well.

I did good morning everybody these things have been busy meeting with the tunnel players at the Senior Bowl. And are doing their due diligence after the quarterback position the team had a lengthy call with Pittsburgh's big Peter Main who plea for new LSU offensive coordinator Matt Canada last season. Yeah he's great very creative. You know it's a special guy and I think she's got to go with him Canada's offense Peter and threw for 2855. Yards and 27 touchdowns completing over 60% of his passes. Will go brow be on the court tonight when the pelicans host the spurs Anthony Davis live Wednesday night's game in the second quarter after re aggravating his thigh bruise. But is listed as probable for this evening's contest at 7 PM in this movie kinks. AD will be needed as San Antonio comes to town. Riding a five game win streak and on the second best record in the Western Conference. First place start to feel like right at home for the UN no men's basketball team the private you're stretched herself with conference lead. 28 full game over Sam Houston State after routing to meet state 75 to 56 at Lakefront arena. The patriots and falcons are getting ready to head to Houston ahead a Super Bowl 51 as both teams are still at home practicing Atlanta receiver Julio Jones is downplaying his matchup against New England corner Malcolm Butler and isn't stressing if the pats decide to double team.

Woods finished with 84 over par par at Torrey Pines yesterday. Today at four on WWL Jordan Deuce McAllister Kristian garic live from Mobile, Alabama for a Senior Bowl addition of fans in the pro which players might be a good fit for the saints in which Alicia tiger should the black and gold target in the draft. I'm Steve Geller in that your early morning it's. Force him a little confused you had a sound of Mickey Loomis this week saying the science and feel like Drew Brees is still in elite quarterback they're not worried about the future they're worried about than now they wanna win this coming season. And then not in the market for a Drew Brees replacement quarterback. But then I'm there are reports now that they're talking to potential quarterbacks who could be stuck quarterback of the future which is it in which should it be. Yet to me I guess they're not looking to spend may be an early round draft pick are a quarterback but I think it would be Smart for this team. To try and land a quarterback somewhere in this draft. Big Garrick grace and experiment looks like it's a failed one I've used a third round pick at him. And when you release the guy from your practice squad and from your roster and other teams are able to pick him up it kind of says a lot I know he was brought back. Com because no Olympic two of Milla grabbed him off of waivers. I think the team. We'll go in that direction but don't expect anything. Early on like the first two rounds three rounds out of be deathly later on in the draft hopefully they can land someone that is the next kind of Drew Brees Tom I'd like Tom Brady kind of. Diamond in the rough ground has happened no one else identified alright folks protecting us and it's 78 Saturday that like to hear announced will play Jazz Fest on the announcement comes out of 11 this morning Rolling Stones Moody Blues.
