You pull over that's for only what is open defense fashion industry's recent refers swaggering posture binary thing but hey you know. Yeah me some like guy and. That's. All right so the drug administration. Says that the causeway improvements are one of the top fifty. Infrastructure. Projects in the nation. About and depending how quickly the Transportation Department and against congress. Good move. Now if they can get that thing approved for payment before spring. Maybe we won't see the tolls go up on what caused by dumping a nice thing about the trip for commuters using told tank and two blocks a trip. For those without told. You know because after all the mom. Rigmarole and the anger and the upset this that it spread. If folks don't have to pay higher tolls and they still get the safety improvements. That degrade their federal tax dollars are federal tax dollars went into paying port instead of tolls. As is now I am not a frequent causeway commuter I'm not sure that's great but peck might textiles are being used on things far less. No noticeable the army so at least it's.

I think that you know. FBI after. Taking I want that's what it cost us to an off them out. I'm not too worried about the driver as far underscored the critical what it would if when president X rated 7870 says. What about a driver was Mardi Gras float half million dollar idea none and now also known wouldn't trust it not to run over the kid darting out to get the beads at the drawing boards and stumbling off the curb. Or anything else that could happen to during Mardi Gras parade. And he points you wanting a human beings. Determining wind stops and starts in Nazi but it but about a driver Lewis street car. You see I have absolutely no problem that it's not track yeah you know I'm OK with that and they have prevalence. Trams and air and all over the world including here in the US. I think it just one Hydro road out was in Miami maybe Wear and I think is in Chicago I've written ones are okay with that. That's not attractive assets Dobson. The chances of it hitting something or Favre laughs but around New Orleans he union rules starting in front problem that's this thing you know the guys is due in the gals of the do the driving your now on the on the street cars are going doing a heck of a job because there's a lot of stuff galore on if if you could have a streetcar that did not. Cross intersections in Iraq with traffic and be more yet. That's nearly an impossibility. And she built up in the air and I don't see that little just way too expensive what's your gut check on the Super Bowl. Right now if it ends the way. Vegas says the patriots will be the falcons 31 to twenty. It's the patriots are three points pay room and deal runners to nine points of the ego that would be powered and if Vegas is right. I have been verbally warned. By people notify him. Root for the falcons bad thing that happens and you're routing form as it was looted your gut. On my gut tells me I think the birds couldn't do it. You think they'll overcome out your gut about your official prediction I guess you're got you. Coming up on Friday morning you weren't here Friday McChrystal Miller predicted that M night. Schaub alliance split. Town would remain number one of the box office for a second week he said the buzz was strong with this one guy. People who had heard that M. Night Shyamalan was back to his form from things like the six cents and hit another home run and guess what. He was right he was again six point three million dollar based on enough to make it number one. Part of that though was the power of social media to destroy a film. A dog's purpose was was initially the expected number one at the box office. But some video got released from the sat showing a dog trainer getting pretty Rauf with one of the dog to game one performance to. And grabbing the dog him and then in the dog was like. Falling in water any kind of picked it up and hurled it out of the water and it looked like he could have been uncomfortable for the dog I don't know if it was abusive or not but either way. It was enough to get people who aren't dog lovers to say I don't know. I'm not giving them my money so dog's purpose. Under performed slightly. And only ended up bringing in about eighteen point four million over the weekend for second place here's the saving grace for. And only made it only cost 22 million may Alter ego so it's going to be just fine hidden figures number three Resident Evil number four in La La land. At number five will seat. Later in the week what we got coming up this Friday you know we're due for new batches some beauties why is Wednesday Bono. Guy in new. Newbury port Massachusetts. Had a novel defence against speed. He got a ticket for going forty in a thirty mile an hour zone. And now West Newbury which is next to new report and well of course and take it was a 105 bucks. So he went to court and present at the defense that he thought it wasn't him. That the topic got with the rate Oregon it was a dear prancing about. All of could yes it was the deer he appealed in court late last week and had the opposite take the stage. And asked officer Roy Richard Johnson are you 100%. Sure your radar captured meet speeding. And it wasn't a deer in the vicinity. Of ya doing authority. The officer replied that anything was possible. But he was pretty sure it was guitar. The fine of 105 dollars was up hell. I thoughts and by the way the eight pieces deer can run. About thirty yeah out authorities in the local apple facts on the deer a speedy Gonzales do you think that's on the scale. I've never ever tried to once it goes to court and out of traffic. Because. It just seems like it's gonna cost more time and money and you gonna end up losing anyway yeah so it's like come in now. Passing here I mean this guy went through he pled not guilty he went to trial that he appealed the finding. Compounds yeah that's really stretched over a hundred arrived on the on line up costing them several hundred sir court Kostis David Aaronson man now what am pulled over I've tried a few excuses always do not yet read one that really worked well. It's just quit crying often marks. June to I'm just like it is now in any go to court. And used to have a deal where we haven't had one in a while anyway you know on your your record deal yet it prosecutor the judge is likely to pay the fine is all we really want is money and we won't put on your record like okay. That's fine play that tune by knockout woods. That speeding ticket in years. And he manages. Not that I don't speed descent and Beckett and asked him what in units of Harper's there's they have got an excuse to get out of a speeding ticket that works text me at 87 VA it's Saturday. Yes it is let's go live back the ten point forecasts and it's a good morning to mr. meteorologist today has gone. It's a little chilly this morning but we you don't have rights on sent this afternoon man. Everything will be fine. So what about this warning that's where they are cold distorts and Maria morning's all week long as we're sitting in the mid thirties with a legal frosty there's some news story Carla orally. And try to not an option out there on the or source oust or the or 543 can a 51 Lakefront airport a little. The city notes chilly 36 pound belt takes home 37 so leave crosstown those neighborhoods too so I found the best way to get rid of frost. Is to just ran a cup of room temperature water outside with me and toss them when children depart in the car. The gentlemen Jill lepers and well no frost. Don't you had hot water and out ever use outlook empathetic at what is that called wedge or else they're usually yeah it would be. It is yet it's that you can buy some others com. Which a washer fluid gets rid of that too. Yet again that windshield washer fluid at the blue stuff. That water sprite. Downey people don't carry ice scrapers now anyway if you have for us this morning that was just my recommendation owns. Be careful with that but it goes drive with just scraped. I didn't he had yet don't get just a little hole and try to gear through it and hope you'll see whatever you have to see. Not that I've ever done Mack had never ever know of any other important Everest as the sun comes up pitcher when she'll ever own. A blinding you but you don't you need to jacket this morning which I did not bring one because I heard you say I won't need this afternoon Anderson one carrying around. Exactly events maybe you probably won't do that the quick run from the house to the car. You know but he that were quick not a big deal but. Yet 68 to court as one lot of sunshine today tonight not as cold will be the island 48 Norse or 52 in the South Shore. In the seventies all the way if you Friday afterwards nice weather Tuesday Wednesday Thursday. Maybe some fog comes back maybe Wednesday Thursday mornings but still not Pollack those would be in the fifties on both sides only by and little front comes through Friday kind of never gets coldly through the area so we're not to see much to it temperatures maybe drop a couple of degrees on Saturday 68. Before stronger for it comes to Sunday. That'll be next with a good chance Farina at 40% net front will be here Sunday so I guess that means it won't be over at the Super Bowl on. It should be its economic timing the rule. Probably not. Be okay by them if you're a Super Bowl parties. Guy sitting night with a five in five when he yeah there's at least his own brain for two were. Too. I'd act or whatnot mania today active and eyed the forecast but hey that's still 67 days away so. 56 days we will worry about it when we get there mr. meteorologist Dave knows pomp fifties in the mornings seventies in the afternoons this week perfect beautiful. Almost spring like weather sees the Louisiana. Imagine coming home and finding food all over your step. That's weird. And then you. Walked toward your bedroom and you hear running water. And you realize some of the your now. This is what happened in Youngstown Ohio police say a burglar made himself at home in several houses he broke in Q. By cooking in showering before leaving. Of the 33 year old man actually brought his own food cooked or the break and he just needed a stove and a shower. So you would use the snow cook is sued eat it then take a shower and leave the stayed at this several times but he was caught Saturday. And charges burglary breaking and entering after a woman came home just after midnight and found food on her stove and the shower running and called the cops and on the man's bill. Meeting himself in the shower was escorted locks others. I this house is not too comfortable out water's not hot enough. Well apparently found that you found once he liked over and over again I don't know Avi ever gonna porridge in the deal that buddy did end up getting handcuffs and I. Stay in jail where they will let it take showers and they will beat him go up quite as good is that he's making and it solves his problem though. Takes care of that shower and food issues he was having. B ball. Man you don't wanna you don't wanna I don't eel Amin if I knew in my shower and looked ominous there right now that would not end well item on the Saturday. And today it yet Dave knows Obama effect on the pinpoint forecast on resident vaccinated 78 that he says they've gotten out of a speeding ticket twice by telling the opposite they really had to go. My crossing their legs and holding their hands in that area to make it look like there and bouncing up and down like they really had again. One time he says though the officers that I welcomed that treating go prove it. The president says I was speeding to the hospital with my pregnant wife and now excuse work yet how many times you have a pregnant wife. And you be speeding near the hospital. Another one says strides on the getting a number two really bad that may work. In other presidents on an elevator mechanic it's a way and I tell the police summoned stuck in the elevator from Russian Agassi of them networks. Occasionally. They tried that how to get pulled over reading get there. And then there's this text and today 878 then what's the difference treatment dirty bird and the dirty tough. Dirty tough as a ring. And see what you did there aren't we'll get Steve Geller is gonna attack on if the dirty birds will get a ring. Coming up after tells us about everything that's gone on and sports here on WW well mourns Steve thank you did good morning everybody. He Drew Brees was a late addition to the NFC's roster and it's a good thing since he provided the team with their only touchdown of the Pro Bowl against the NFC and a twenty to thirteen loss. Unfortunately though Brees also had an interception as the AFC was knocking on the end zones door. Possible before you. These outside looks left looks like nobody open now flows from the back of the. I. Don't. Besides Gilmore fellow Buffalo Bill will raise. Alexander also had a pickle of Kirk cousins he's been AFC north territory with just over a minute the play and wound up being the team's defensive MVP. The jets have apparently found their new offensive coordinator Ian Rapoport the NFL network report that they player hires and wide receivers coach John Morton for the position. The black eagle receiver showed improvement under Morton's guidance during the past few seasons. Former first round pick Brandon cooks at rookie Michael Thomas he surpassed a thousand yards this past season. The pelicans six game homestand ended with they won a seventh and 94 award for the Washington Wizards. Anthony Davis put up 36 points and seventeen rebounds in the defeat that dropped the hell's the three games out of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. John Lynch has been named as the new general manager of the San Francisco 49ers. To three time all pro selection replaces track ball he inherits a franchise that was just two and fourteen to seize it. Which comes into the job we've been no fraud all this experience. Beating Indianapolis Colts also hired in an experienced GM by tapping former Kansas executive Chris battle and as there are new general manager. Mallard comes to the chiefs. Tainted chiefs 2013 as the director of player personnel and was promoted to director of football operation. And John ramp closed with a five under par to win the PGA its Farmers Insurance open at Torrey Pines by three strokes over Charles Howell the third and see tape and Tiger Woods made it through two rounds before missing the cut by shooting four over par. Today app for its second guess what Bobby Hebert Mike Dixon a lot from the super super casino. What did you make of this year's Pro Bowl and how would you change the game. And it's 7 PM talk polish groups on the Johnny Jones show I Steve Geller which early morning look at sports. Hurston Howell the third. From don't have pretty close that's Russell the book to reference for the neighbor Charles Howell the third of that video a relative a thirst Thurston that is our gut check time. At where Super Bowl week it's finally here the teams are hidden. Their hotels getting ready to practice for the Super Bowl for the first time here we go. Vegas says it'll and the patriots 31 falcons 28. Do you think that that's accurate what does your gut tell you your official prediction comes Friday but. You gut tell you that in his check is that they that the right way for the thing and yet the way the way the patriots aren't just been dominating over the last few years it's hard to imagine night yes. The Atlanta Falcons being able to rise up in Concord Tom Brady. And Bill Belichick have who have been on this big. Revenge mission and I feel against Roger Goodell so much early gut check out unlike in the patriots idea that hey if that's the way it adds though that regret all I ever asked for an Aussie rules close game. Now this is a little added because like people think the patriots are cheaters. Or they think that the league was unfair or they hate the falcons as the saints fans is a little more emotion this year about the two teams and it. But rarely are we want is a good team yet as far as this point I think who dads don't care the patriots she does beat the felt program that well I'd Vegas says 3128. The patriots. Will win will see. On Sunday just six days away from the Super Bowl thank you Steve careful what you ask for your fast food restaurant. In New Hampshire. Police say that if you go to Burger King. And ask for extra crispy Fries. You'd end up with. A bunch of marijuana I need to act against those. So that was code. For two employees who work at the at New Hampshire Burger King to tell them that they could tell you some pot extra crispy a rat. Then they got caught barely they were doing it for awhile though keyboard is going to the drive through this that the owners of the franchise had no idea. They do of the workers were selling marijuana. At the drive through at this as fresh extra crispy Fries. Now with the likes of marijuana when not. Everybody have a great Monday don't worry it's able getting get through that is going to be a beautiful we have a great day. Thanks for joining us on the early edition.
