On paper yet this is hugely competitive football should be good yeah I could care well. And it's funny saints fans -- really haven't had for a hard times and I've been finding her. Deciding who they hate more and still hot at 49. And who they want to lose more the Seahawks for the 49ers. And I've -- people on both sides of this debate.

Great trio of would be car thieves had hit the brakes on their plan because none of them. Knew how to drive a stick -- want to talk about. Stop you got to drive a manual trans I'm going to be honest right not it's never been tried no I've tried and tried it a surprise and tried. I've we have it not because my dad has always driven -- to -- I mean. All ways and so you know that was one of his goals was to get me to learn how to drive one and I'm 32 and it it's just it's not in the cards for me at Kelly played tennis it's just not gonna happen for me. It's not gonna work. And I enjoyed I when I was younger driving Emanuel -- People don't like at the -- one of my hands of variable and -- so -- in the last that was realtors car purest love -- Yet manual that the only way to get my twelve year old son insists he will never drive anything bodies dictionary so now you get to a point when -- early release and you know I really one but anyway in Springfield they pulled a knife on a food delivery driver demanded his food and his keys. Then they noticed the -- a manual transmission. Police say the thieves actually argued among themselves for about a minute. Trying to figure out so what are we couldn't hear you -- those. Two. And they took off with the -- they did take the food we did not take the car when they realized there was no way they can drive well maybe that's another reason you know which tries to sets because maybe you're less likely to have your car stolen there you go out you see any safer from -- yeah. Can't drive -- -- or more about now or future yeah you'll be stealing anybody sister -- you're thinking dollar now -- the holes I was not call and you don't. Criminals by nature -- -- I'm telling you when you when you sit -- -- try to drive it you can't you do feel dogs. A I don't have those with you -- patient with you as you -- he -- not eighteen topic again. And very patient at -- I had friends in college try to teach me that park in lot. I just I would I would get so frustrated with myself -- I I just I cannot do it's just for me it does not. The Klutz things it does not work with my brain I don't hit it. Some people it just sounds that way I doubt you are -- have many other socially redeeming while a figure that will let you go on the I have a great day or about now I haven't heard from the Eyewitness News forecast that does. How many people who drive a manual transmissions fiction anymore nearly every vehicle even top and sports cars are automatic. You drive a stick -- an automatic lemon -- made 878 that night coming up sports with -- -- are more predictions at the end of the AFC and NFC title games and I'll tell you why researchers say the more sex you have the smarter -- 878 Saturday from people who driving manual transmission mistake shifted by. It just. The first two vehicles I found when I started driving worst access and I loved it nine Hewitt. Being. Conducted in my car and and that is driving experience but since then every vehicle like -- has been -- automatic just because. I find it to. -- need that hand and that put for a lot of it. And it is more convenient than you were tried to talk on the phone while driving a manual transmission. And you get a hold your steering wheel with your knees sometimes and you know either hand on the wheel matches dangerous. Are so anyway so there is that by the way if you weren't a relationship where your spouse doesn't. Enjoy sex as much as you'd. Wake them up now they're not out because right after sports I'm -- share this -- with -- -- says the -- that you have the more intelligent this is my public service to the community. This morning. And also as a service to the community we bring you sports on this. Friday morning so we say happy Friday to mark Menard coming up right after it is sports. I need your prediction for the NFC championship game as you've already given us your prediction for the AFC with two preview of this I'm ready. With Drew Brees having just passed -- 35 birthday The Who dat nation wants -- -- how much the -- triggerman has left in the tank John Payton says he's not concerned about the advanced each of his. Quarterback history that quarterback. Who are as J. D. Drew quarterbacks that are talented have careers that go much further than the average career and both players. And he says no prepares like number nine but -- -- two men dish shaped piece he's someone who's extremely meticulous in his preparation and how we pay attention to not only history -- -- rectum and all those things. Seattle receiver Percy carbon has still not been cleared by team doctors for this Sunday's NFC championship game against the 49ers. Part of it's still undergoing concussion testing after leaving last Saturday's game against the saint with a head injury -- has only appeared in two games since being signed by the Seahawks last summer. Patriots patriots quarterback Tom Brady was back on the practice -- yesterday though after missing Wednesday's practice with an illness -- downplayed his -- stated that the team will be ready to take on Denver on Sunday with the AFC title at stake. What both title games for you would -- to -- well starting at 230 Sunday afternoon. And after looking like he was on the hot -- towards in the last season New York Jets coach Rex Ryan has now signed a fresh new contract extension the new deal runs at least to -- fifteen. But it did but is instead of Leighton the work depending heavily armed playoff wins. The deal also isn't fully guaranteed after 2015 mean pressure remains on Ryan to win now. I'm mark and -- and that's your early look at sports side 52 days. Gone Mark -- with the on your radio on Friday morning and -- Indy Brady vs Manning game. It's not the patriots vs the Broncos even on nfl.com that's what it says written another page Brady vs Manning. And the rest of those players must feel very left out that they don't get to participate. Come Sunday at 2 o'clock central time but you've already given us your prediction that the patriots will win Steve Geller who got -- all right last week who's got the flu this week also predicted the patriots. In the NFC game which is at 5:30 PM. New Orleans time on Sunday Steve Geller is picking that. 49ers both road teams who'd you pick mark -- I picked Seattle. -- -- I just think that they're the better team they dominated the organizers when they got him at homer earlier in the season. They lost a game late in the season at home to Arizona but I think that was the anomaly they've been very good at home all year. They ruled last week over the saints and I think they've they might be the best team in the league and I and I think that there had to do you think the Seahawks patriots. Steve thanks to the 49ers. -- people. Like think that the 49ers. Broncos so we got three -- three different prediction. It's like the Highlander only one can be right if that level I think what have you we'll be right that it we'll have to wait till Monday to find out who that is well every fifteen minutes get more support from -- -- -- about like mark I'm they've gone up acts. Excuse mark and your forecasted. I'd 555. -- -- also about this research that says the more yet. Get -- smarter you get. Need a reason to have sex can make you smarter so say scientist at the University of Maryland who found that sex can jump start the production of brain cells. Generating new neurons in the hippocampus. Where memories are formed. The study suggests that frequent sexual activity can actually -- sure brainpower. The bad news if you stop having sex the benefits are lost the brainboost also seems to be greatest in middle age while sex has the least effective -- generating brain cells in teens and young adults Jim -- VC BS -- All right teams don't count but the older you get at least in your middle years more sex make you smarter share that.
