All right and -- -- there. -- the weekend we actually warm up a -- 65 on Saturday and 68 on Sunday mostly sunny on Saturday and mostly sunny on Sunday until the afternoon some clouds begin in tightly in the day -- do we get to seventy at some point before the -- cold front. Via radio yeah we're we're at seventy next week it seems they -- at the when they were at victory and yet we begin a moderate a little bit next week but you know a few. How things you do that I have pregnancy and I think it's really cold like that and maybe get a couple of days at. Decent artwork -- wash the car put up holiday decorations everything. There you go again and again they don't actually went to the seventies. Hang in those decorations on the outside of that a little more comfortable and doesn't till Christmas the event. You know I wish we had the kind of problems here they have been Braintree Massachusetts and that's the big problems there not really that's my point they are. Expensing. Some serious money to find out who is letting their dog -- on the lawns and not pick it up. They're actually DNA testing the drop things there's a drive by Cooper going and then their DNA testing these suspected bodies. If the match them up to find out. -- -- -- Haven't had op apartment complexes do this sort of thing yet that's map yet as has mostly apartment and Condo managers yeah. Dogged by complaints attack but you know see if is if it is it a lot of it happening frequently. I have frequently enough and I think it's our assets to DNA test the dogs. -- honors have to pay -- a lot of the fee to live in these candidates particularly the pay like sixty bucks yeah Fred DNA test when they moving it. So the dog he's DNA is on file so that if. That hard to just pick up after your dog -- task in a really. Yeah if you don't wanna do the whole plastic bag -- the get a feel it and touch it and the grandma OK fine. -- -- -- -- -- -- I think part of dog ownership it's just as part -- -- good citizen midnight -- -- out. I mean come on if not it's planning to what you blob back and say I toy. He has scooped it up a little baggy. He too much but I can I get some people don't like to put their hand in -- in the bagging -- it to get a medal which OK I don't that's something I'm going out that do -- nobody nobody can just leave it for everybody all that. But his stuff up there in Braintree. Maybe they'll find -- -- the do you maybe they'll be a ransom for that Cooper that the blueprint lever. Timothy Heath thank you have a great weekend enjoy -- weekends Laura but now. -- direct from the Eyewitness News forecasts. Just texted me -- 878 Saturday says they just got back from there Thursday night all night shopping swell our way. And they saved -- thousand dollars. Buying gifts by hidden door buster sales as it was the first time they did -- And they'll definitely do it again next year there -- a lot -- a lot of people out all night long. Doing their shopping no doubt when you gotta get some rest. If you wanna watch the tigers and the hogs today are right. For our morning sports -- -- happy Friday in happy day after Thanksgiving to Steve gallery Steve our. I am glad to be here. And I am glad that I get these get off the -- and get ready for some tiger football even if it is a going to be while opening. And LSU over yet honoring the seniors on senior day Yang you know let's talk about that after years sportscaster they're gonna lose some important pieces on offense. As the defense has been struggling what does that mean for next season well let's focus on this game first and talk about that and of course the big Monday night game saints and the smartest. Good morning and LSU closes out the regular season this afternoon against Arkansas and Death Valley. Used to be chief with the latest although he's not a senior he could very well be his last game in Tiger Stadium receiver all -- Beckham junior. You try not to think about it but you know sometimes those votes they do roll through your mind and you know it's just something right now you know -- have -- tougher -- your family and me in the coaches and you can kind of get the whole. The whole information around it and see you know what she wanted to would have to. It's that I got to the hall today 130 on WW LP ability at WW real sports over to the NFL where Matthew Stafford threw for 330 yards and three touchdowns as the alliance -- the Packers 48 at ten. Reggie Bush British with a 117. Yards rushing and 65 yards receiving to help the line's improved to seven and five. We answer the call and an especially staying. No idea I was impressed with -- as the way we handled -- we held pressure well we handled situations well and we fought through adversity and and now we finish again -- tomorrow to win and you know were the first place are now. DeMarco Murray ran for three touchdowns and the Dallas Cowboys -- two games over 500 for the first time this season by turning 21 to seven deficit. In 2831. To 24 win over Oakland. And in the Thanksgiving night game Justin Tucker hit five field goals. Joseph Flacco threw for 251 yards in the Baltimore Ravens improved to six and sixth by outlasting Pittsburgh 22 to ten. What the saints get ready to head -- to Seattle most analysts are asking the question. And the blacking gold when the big game on the road. Drew Brees just points out the team's past success. If you look at our record over the last. Eight years -- -- -- -- second most wins since 06 and the most of sonar on the road so I guess the stats speak for themselves there. The pelicans look to snap a three game -- they take on the 76ers in Philadelphia tonight didn't catch took a 1053 WWL left them at seven. And -- LSU basketball took down saint Joseph's 82 to 65 in the final quarterfinal. Of the old spice classic. The tigers advanced to face number 21 Missouri a semi final today you can catch tip on three WL thirteen 50 AM -- for thirty. I'm Steve Geller and that your early morning look at. -- expenses six minutes in front of 6 AM the early edition WW golfers as we already know you expect. LSU to win big today and the little worried I had just put a video of -- guys up on our FaceBook page 2000 WWL account. He points out and tigers are losing -- met burger. Likely to lose what both O'Dell Beckham junior and Jarvis Landry for a few big receivers. Now it's not the nine starters on defense they lost last year but. This LSU team still looking for a quarterback for next season and looking for some offensive weapons for next season so. So we should enjoy today and whatever bowl game they go to Connecticut still some big question mark for next here. Yet that to me the season is not disappointing for LSU the way the thing that disappointed me is the fact that. Now that -- member had seemed to really come alive under cam Cameron's offensive scheme and his tutelage the fact that now he's gonna. Moving on Bryant. As if this assuming the tigers win today at ten win season. Is that this appointment for you and should people be government get real smiles at. So will we not is to be the sixth time in LSU. And let's miles it's six seasons at LSU that they would have won ten ten games and they don't. Just seven times in -- 111 seasons before less miles got. They accomplish that. Pretty successful by those standards might saints win or lose on Monday night movie score on Monday when a list. Well those. I got away and -- But you can hit it and down this year we'll find out more wire Monday morning thank you Steve -- the entertainment and sports. -- WW. Happier out early this morning and -- frost on your windshield to get a little warmer today. We're -- this holiday with the sunshine and cool temperatures 58 later today for shoppers heading out on Black Friday evening clear and cold again tonight. 32 north of the lake and forty on the South -- than sunshine around for your Saturday with mild Temps in the mid sixties. And first Sunday partly cloudy skies at 10% chance for light shower highs in the upper sixties. From the Eyewitness News forecast center I'm meteorologist mark Bechtel. 34 at the airport in -- 28 insight now feels like 23 for go to the game bundle up can be in the fifties throughout the entire LSU in. -- -- -- focused on the next four hours the psychology of Black Friday -- people do it and the comparison between Black Friday and a -- and Barack consol goodness a lot of the people line I would do it. It's tradition and a Buick has its fine. Not fun to me but fund that -- -- great Friday go tigers.
