Eleven minutes after 5 AM at the early edition of WWL first news on this 21 of January 2000 in fourteen -- share is it's a Tuesday. Welcome to not to Monday off. At first I wanna talk about this whole discussion about legalizing marijuana in the Louisiana hair so housing criminal justice committee today will meet to discuss the -- The ACLU says a recent survey shows more than half of Louisiana -- think that pot should be legalized in Louisiana. Not decriminalized now legal -- just let anyone who is of age go ahead and smoke it -- it to giving candy just -- like Colorado is yeah dude do the Colorado thing with -- stores and and founder of growing like crazy that smoke and or whatever now here's the problem. Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal has clear national political aspirations. Plus conservative ones through very cancer he wants to be in new face and voice of a movement to reform the Republican Party. He'd wants to be maybe vice president. Probably wants to be president whether he can or not is still one clear area seems unlikely at least in this election cycle but. Who knows down the road you're running mate might fit the bill. Do you think that a staunch conservative Republicans. From the deep south states. Would ever. Be the third governor in the country. To approve legalization of marijuana very doubtful it's seems like too risky position to -- At this time in his political. Ambition. Development. So for Bobby Jindal -- -- he could probably knicks about anything legislature did get away and governors in the state historically have extreme control not only do they have veto power there. Buy it they there's never been big gubernatorial veto over ridden. So generally speaking if they tell legislature what to do the legislature generally has done it. So bottom line talk about it all you want and extremely unlikely at least for the next two years. The governor Bobby Jindal would be willing to allow that to become law may be wrong I contrast of about it I've never heard him comment on it. But it just seems with the political. You know situation being what. The idea and I think you're probably dead on with that. Probably about the only thing they won't get done in the session is possibly. Reducing. Some of the whopping criminal penalties -- -- -- former -- that's that seems fairly likely am maybe just maybe having some sort of medical -- out an -- built yeah maybe maybe -- -- -- the doctor can write a prescription for marijuana and Louisiana now but there's no way to fill that because is no legal means for pharmacy obtain so maybe they look at that -- May be the governor let that happen but. -- -- You gotta start some are gonna do this two or three years down the road maybe this is what they have to do to get started and even the experts are saying navy yeah like you said -- you know on. Years down the road may be then they get this and again who becomes. -- drove in this.

Who played a fantastic game and advance to the Super Bowl. -- commissioner Roger Goodell told the NFL network that the league could eventually abolish the extra point. -- extra point is almost automatic I believe we have five. Mr. extra points -- -- out of 12100 tomorrow so it's a very small fraction of the play and you wanna add excitement with everybody. You don't said that the league is intrigued by proposal that would automatically -- seven points for every touchdown. What will still allow teens to try for an eight point -- an offensive play.

I am I don't know but I'm just like I wants to be president or vice president or at least the national voice of the conservative movement just seems too risky to me to be one of the very few states in the nation to legalize it -- in place and they can be used against him but. I don't know I've never heard him comment on and I don't know what his position as on and I just think that people who wanna be president of the United States. Generally don't go way out on blames on controversial now where you heard comments just recently from President Obama on this and he is a whole different story he's in favor of legalizing criminalizing one knee to the New Yorker Magazine that.

Happy Tuesday not -- today it's Tuesday and that we have Steve Geller with all your morning sports. That's -- good morning everyone well whatever problem the pelicans may be having the remedy seems to be playing the grizzlies. -- left the top of the yards top of the new crossover dribble. Now for the rest of the way. I heard there. The shot clock expired. The world and won 95 to 92 in Memphis snapping an eight game losing skid. The pills have now won all three games against the grizzlies this year Anthony Davis according 27 points with ten rebounds four blocks. And four steals. And it text message to ESP and Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman apologized for his post game comments about San Franz Michael Crabtree. Sherman Steve his intent was to not take away from the fantastic game that it just simply by his teammates who beat the 49ers to advance to the Super Bowl. All along with possibly expanding the playoffs commissioner Roger Goodell has told the NFL network that the league is considering. Doing away with having to kick extra point after scoring a touchdown. There's one proposal in particular I've heard about its automatic that you get seven points we scored touchdowns. But you could potentially go for eight point either by running or passing the ball. If you fail to comfort going for that -- point to touchdown would then be worth six points and now let's hand things over Kristian garic who's at the Senior -- Saints' coaches and scouts are mobile this week checking out the talent. At this year Senior Bowl saint director of college scouting -- my -- talks about some of the things he watches for during practice. Mostly goes about his business the mental stuff he's making mistakes or whatever. -- -- very similar go to doing you know breakfast was in college distance in -- it's probably better players got to scout team gets first unit so there's a better place. To a wide receiver Ryan Grant pressed at the south squad practice yesterday. From Mobile, Alabama Kristian garic -- to be well sports today at four on sports talk get the latest from the Senior Bowl. What position as the saints' biggest area of need this offseason. At 530 at LSU basketball vs Missouri. Then at seven you have a choice switch over 8:7 AM to continue listening to fight tiger hoops. Or two -- 21053 WWL let them to hear the pelicans host the Sacramento Kings. I'm Steve Geller which early morning look explored by 52 gave. On Steve -- with you on your radio show under this discussion that the NFL has now started. If they do get rid of the extra point. Would you automatically get seven for a touchdown that's how that would work correct it would automatically be a touchdown -- give you a seven point play. Bush you still could choose to go for now an extra point which would be the eighth point and after run or pack. -- -- he had all morning cracked -- to play it right you can't ticket to the only thing he operated before would be field goals on this and exactly so what if you. It's a -- failed to get. The eight point you still would get seven under the scenario venue would get just six hop. OK so there is a gamble right in the commissioner did mention though that there is a concern that there worrying that it will discourage people for going for that extra. Eighth point then if they do implement this but I. I kind of liked it I think it adds a new dimension to the game where. It takes out an extra play where. He pointed out that only five missed extra points all year out of 12100 -- so and you could end -- getting hurt on the play which means really nothing. And I like the idea that you'd have to force a coach to decide if he wants to a point off the board potentially if you don't get. You're -- right exactly got seven already on the scoreboard. Again take one off now at the end of game where it's winner guarantee you gonna win or lose based on that. Or tie or her. We in you know it'd be very interesting decisions you like that you think is they should do it I like the idea I've -- I know that. People who don't like behavior deathly kickers in the league is taking away some of the job now. That -- point. They'd have less purpose thank you Steve you're purposeful though we'll bring you back in fifteen minutes with more sports here at WWL and -- them back up I coming up I'll share some of your thoughts on the best driving songs of all time and I'll play the number one driving song of all time.
