Early morning look at sports got to pick one. One favorite member ever to play for the saints won now now. If I if you put a gun in my head and made me pick right now I'd have to be deliveries does speak as he represents. I think it embodies everything about the saints turning things around after Katrina. Indeed the whole sense of rising from the ashes of renewable. Second chances. And then he was at that now when the saints won the sequels. I have to choose to respect they won not only great player but a great. Person and role model as well which is nice yeah I mean there's other great great thing through the years but mainly big one which -- would GA have an argument that is a seminar.

Comments or lack of comments and asked why he only played one minute meetings in the fourth quarter. In the loss. To the lakers this hubris died. -- one minute he's played in the fourth quarter and seemed very unhappy about it you about that we talk -- it played them it was -- -- -- -- We do have a crash if you're heading from Metairie -- Canner.

Isolated clouds this afternoon but mild Temps in the upper sixties -- near perfect weather later today. And back to ninety up plants not too bad overnight lows around 47 on the North Shore and 55 south of the lake.

Fans -- Down south. I -- club kids around a bit careless driving please. You can't look. That is good idea and also -- unity of resident sports here. -- and that we have Steve Geller on your Friday every Friday this. Happy Friday Dave and one bright spot in the -- struggling defense last season was rookie defensive tackle Hakeem hicks. -- -- what my problem with my strength and power and athleticism. At a bigger -- had to move around pretty well and -- probably beautifully and is that it worked out. Picked as one of the building blocks to a unit that ranked dead last in the NFL last season and he could be in store for a breakout season under new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. What's the final weekend of nonconference play for LSU baseball as the tigers host Washington now for a three game series coach pulmonary says Huskies pitcher Austin -- Can compete with the best of the FCC. If you rented out their mid 199596. Miles an hour to his last two outings he struck out fourteen and one game that night and in the other will be leading the -- twelve strikeouts. The LSU women's basketball team survived a late all -- -- to win 6562. And advance to the quarterfinals in the SEC tournament. The Lady Tigers battle Georgia tonight on our sister station ESPN thirteen 50 AM starting at that there. All the hornets have had a rough week they suffered back to back losses in which they coughed up leads late in the game. And -- -- 247 dot com's Michael Michael MacNamara tells us. That fans are starting to question the head coach. -- Williams just making some some odd decisions down the stretch to think. -- that kind every step of breaking point after that. The hornets returned to action tomorrow night in Memphis and jockey Calvin Burrell has claimed the career numbered 5000 win in Oakland park and Hot Springs. The south Louisiana native is a three time Kentucky Derby winner. And becomes the 26 North American jockey with 5000 wins. Today F four on sports talk the saints and that's the whole fame class for 2013. Who's your favorite member of the black and gold past or present and Steve Geller with your early morning look at sports they've -- Eve gala hang out here -- your Friday. Morning yet you could hear money Williams getting very defensive. Now in questions about clock management play your management read a lot of these decisions that have been at least apart. Of the hornets blowing huge -- at the end of games particularly this week Louis seventeen point lead bullet point five point lead. And -- losing to the magic and the lakers respectively. But more interesting to me was not money. Williams defensiveness as we've he's always had kind of an adverse relationship with the reporters in the mediate hasn't -- that really care for. Facing questions in dealing with. You guys that but. More interesting to me -- is Anthony Davis's reaction in the locker room after the lakers loss. Reporters asked him how he felt about only playing one minutes. In the fourth quarter while the lead dissolved and the hornets lost to the lakers. What did you see in his face here in his voice as he didn't really want to comment about it but made clear he felt. Yet he was he could definitely tell he was upset there and talk tears were actually Welling up in his eyes and it's very very down and he. I know the rookie wants to play and he's also battling a shoulder injury that too with that can think of what money would be cautious with him at Williams that it wouldn't be fair to play him that hard. Because of his injuries that he's battling he didn't specify what other than the shoulder it is but. He's apparently trying to protect his golden player -- looking ahead to next year. And I can are from respect that but I also understand why everyone's frustrated because like you said you saw -- -- dissolving at least. Put him back in the game to make a difference because Robin Lopez was just not. Doing a thing if that's going. And here's a guy who is the centerpiece the superstar Kentucky taken him to a national championship carrying the team he had a lot of help but. You know he -- -- a superstar he was the man. Now I come here and has to -- sit on the bench in the fourth or watching his team fall apart in his company can do because -- go to a tournament. One player NCAA player of the year last season and most consider him a one of a kind talent that -- the boards were definitely lucky to get a part of and it just hasn't been able to. Translate so far on the court but this is because we haven't seen yet we haven't seen enough of him -- action plan must again. But there are those moments where he you know he's got those jaw dropping Alley oop dunks that he put through and Michael Jordan -- -- -- in the fourth quarter. But you know Mike can come into the league nineteen years old either so that's what the problem and I think -- with the league. They've got back with more sports in fifteen minutes at WW. It six car -- they're bats as you're heading from Metairie -- -- snowed backups -- to clear we will get the latest in WWL traffic coming up the forecast for the weekends here. -- -- Seventies. And no rain 'til maybe Sunday night that accident may have resulted because everybody heard your forecast and it is -- turn around -- go home I don't are going to be perfect weather today. Nigerian for the next four hours upon here at WW relic again. I'm highly criticized step by a few people for my views on issues and yet I still call myself. A Catholic. A there's a new survey from CBS news and it shows that I'm actually in the majority with many of my beliefs you may be shocked it would a majority of Catholics believed. Also this morning a guy delivers 85 pizzas that -- over 14100 dollars. And he gets a ten dollar tip. Or you can it was 85 -- -- -- one locate him and took him ten bucks that -- and eleven -- you know. That's a realistic is that -- if you don't expect to be forgotten figures it we'll talk about it -- -- up next folks don't forget to spring forward. Turn your clock ahead one hour before you go to -- tomorrow night. Have a great weekend.
