Is sick take me a year later. I didn't. They take me to your leader who's the leader. I might be at a range here it's a group up. People with a skeleton sit on. And like it was always tennis starting her skelter selling album together it's. Eighteen years eighteen here. And here I thought I banks have a model cars flooded a very it's somewhere out enough. And speed walking again they are telling it looks like they're smaller so you get any exercise done I get another to bloom a cool. Right around the balloons barely legal barely legal nineteen anyone at Tony 78 years barely legal is on the go on the blue. What is that thing barely legal skeleton crew. That's not free nation anything's. And I'll give it to the not a lot of them just this there be careful what you take I would take a break it's me Tommy Tucker along with Kristian garic Christian down on the street. And now this is different than in the saint silent as much differently than report that Simon should be good at this I just realized elderly you don't actually talked to the saints during the game. You just observe and and report on yeah. Just testing this money brought sidewinder it's actually a Christian Garrett and I got to be up here this year because of the knee and I hate that but woody and do. I'd do it we're live here in saint Charles avenue live from Dahlia all would greatest free show on earth. Don't go anywhere to be right back breaking all the colors this sounds. And I guess we'll described the sites of money brought some Mardi Gras mambo here on WW well Tommy Tucker along with Kristian garic here again you're all waiting for all of the fun. That money grub promises every year Zulu I believe is under way we got a great progress report coming up. And they'll be followed by Rex and gosh knows how many trucks. We wanna thank leg and seen throughout quibbling and signs very quickly since 1922. Where food lovers shot out shop uptown on Arab Fella. Or on that tree road and now in river bridge so. Christian Garrett has taken a break from his saints sideline reporter duties to become. Our money broad sideline reporter and he has on the sidelines right now. We have here with couple shall nations and there they're being veto right if that's that at the constant. Now the band needles and Thelma tell me about this this sign you guys are a rock join up trumps most wanted. Well we'll schools and everybody else shall we were scared to be out in public might take its we'll. Stay alive. My passport so I hope nobody. I mean. That's the satire that the you know met yet there's shell that anyone a bit liberating to be taken back each element. IU is out are you all for the you'd be taken back to sell met Tom it was a I. Know shell that would terrify it. Honestly believe the parish alone I I expect. I got people down entirely accidental life of the new year on out there no matter no well that's what their favorite team did concede they waited on it ran dancer with my favorite king case. Brings you know makes it. They don't care about edited and don't matter about it. Hey that's the thing about what I love about one log in particular scene the satire seeing the satire these costumes though we've got a. At the end it in a way is a kind of bold statement because Donald probably you know. It'll loving me and Dave I don't think there's only very polarizing I don't know that there's. In between ground and I think it takes some guts that. Express your opinion whatever it is either way you know. Or surely got I've been. Brady pretty much since Thursday and I've seen a lot of trump seemed satire. Amongst the captains and a lot of Thursday you know throughout from Thursday. For much of today asking a lot of political satire as we expected the best when though I think in this league and I saw was obviously pockets and they're in a dig at the Atlanta Falcons would. And other than the ring of honor. The you know. That Matt Ryan any gun in a really young and apparently young in the regular CN spells perfect. And some people texted me we're talking about it in the mornings and I thought it was classless. And about they would want is one of those pockets brings these tablets have been the falcons fan yes I got it prevents you from me I guess I give it to you it's Wiki. And it looks like it's a boring I want it I don't know why but I saw that throw. I gotta have that normally stuff like that doesn't bother me a call like five of them. You know this a reversal because I'm up here normally am down the street and you're down there normally Europe here yeah but you know party your duty is to collect coconuts for everybody back alien math right not someone that's when I I will be off Mike when Zulu rules we I we can would you hideous green and it beckoned for coconuts I think that's alma climb the float them know. New they'll dude dude and not a good idea and I of course up Pete fountain. Unfortunately no peat this year but it'll be interesting to see when they are a group goes by I would think deeply that here at the not a repeat. But you know people want them to go on. They really had to put some more some more revelers I want to do by Democrats I talked. We've got. I know part of this is the word that right now the grandstands are you know you're at your bye Geiger hall and across the street on saint Charles that. A lot of folks coming in and what it is beautiful because you see the kids out mystery plane as well it's kind of just atmosphere. That they eat in the Family Guy you kind of you kind of welcoming it's not tonight morning nuggets that Tommy gets a bad rap. No around the country where they perhaps you feel like oh it's it's got a bunch of debauchery but certain parts it can be put down you were at saint charles' I would say very famous for. I would think canal street usually is a line of demarcation and it seems like years ago. I was honored to be that big grand Marshal Todd sent on saint Charles avenue like where we are maybe Olympic clothes that are now you started to see a little bit of flashing. And you know what it's like colored water do whatever you wanna deal I don't hear that you know that when you go to the corner right Padilla with the failing that something that. Have got so I got tonight on here and they and a custom has got to sign with a box around his front point six billion dollar. Guard went off on wall in front point six billion dollar wall Mexico offers not we're stuck with a for the move off so it another trump seemed to dig here fortunate. And the grotto where you're from. So you do this often you can be down here promoting the arts. Defend the weather. I'm healthy enough to let the weather season. Think last year I try to get out. I got up in the parade my car you know for like three hours of video elegantly parade. You don't put. Christian I just wonder begin asking me is not to get too serious but. What prompted him to make its yeah yeah so what what inspired to do what prompted you to the dressed like this. The Scott not invoke throw. Pretty simply I want moved up again week you didn't vote for single vocal again. Obviously not a trumps the border has the gotten any negative. Wanted one building walls. And a lot of anyway you like to along in your anyway. I think we adult life that we spend money have you had anybody come of the of the opposite opinion to get ER done by your thoughts now. I think itself with a few assignment reload with a bobbled from this I don't know. Hello to take you to speak to make this the boxes cardboard box right. Right. Apple and did they get to make it all having like you know it's that it was gonna say they couldn't quite a lot if he can never find a damn box that that plays up the idea that two when he minutes on the toilet thing where where are you Christian at what I want I got 2 o'clock -- what can file a suit guys cast my hair looked you right Donna. Tim he's got that Captain America had on I got you okay. Yeah I would say that didn't take very long yet when he met this guy like Jindal again auction. A Mattel is controversial as the president is and I'm not saying I'm more emergency. I think it takes you know you almost. The applicant trouble and we use that phrase at all but. You're opening yourself up to somebody that's gonna take up events that it any other day I think he would be upset by it but that's a great and if you do expect that's a great time not today made a mark be different I would take a break. Here it is the money grow my vote.
