Grade. -- -- period due to arrive this weekend and the weather's been you know man Josh as Lori. Some people argue that because this morning I didn't have any battery no evidence that the. It was that nasty crash that they've now got off on the shoulder two cars completely destroyed and collision. On the night tan as you come in from Metairie to -- media on the Carrollton overpass -- jobs and just mangled completely. Very bad crash again uses off the side bit. Two officers sitting on the field with the lights watching them on slow one down through there. Text message and it's seventy it's at least -- the fog is absolutely terrible and -- hand are out. Belle chase quarter mile. Probably worse. And and bad at the airport but. You and I came in from Metairie no problem yeah I can see it on the Mississippi River but it's not in routing the Crescent City connection porridge. At this time it's over it's not one of those mornings were thickens up creeps in. And Todd watching TV last night. I was much -- Fever one shadow does smarts. Comedic drama about extended family. And the trials and tribulations of life it deals with law that deals. Married details with raising children all kinds of things you know much about that while most do -- have also a satellite exile is of some sort. And put it surprised me last night. To hear the a whole word used in in the wasn't used that way the tires. On primetime. News disease and nine as a network -- time -- tomorrow on NBC. And it was the premise was. Some kids have been -- means to an autistic. Who's trying to cope where bullying and -- mean they come with being in high school. Today and I don't understand he has a meltdown he he be throws with. He shuts down -- tipped them give him from an overnight field trip. And his dad turns to him and tells them that it's far. -- holes but he uses the entire -- And it occurred to me. Then if you can use that phrase now on primetime television to be words already been used frequently to hear that all the -- -- -- all parts of day in 98 orders even. Often pursued by Jack but often it but. A hole I had never heard line. Other than pay TV yeah well you know a table yet the Hillary Rodham -- and the -- was particularly the premium channels. You know Larry you come to expect. So it seems now the the only words that are off limits for broadcast. Television. Are the B word in the -- -- That's it I doubt about -- words that you cannot say or that they do not commonly stand television. And I don't know that's good or bad I don't know that's. Right or wrong I. I was just surprised to hear it. And I'm curious what our audience thanks and I'm looking for text messages and 87870. Should. There be words the word. Any hole the entire thing should that be used on broadcast television. During prime -- it wasn't the family hour from -- now eighth. But it doesn't even sound like you know this was a kind of show you'd expect to hear that word that context makes perfect sense it's. Paul somebody was angry it was a angry father out whose child is being bullying bullies and now admits. In situations like that -- used cars sure I I tried not to cars. Very much at all in my life but there are times -- all you've got -- ago. And had -- been that father and that had been a real life situation. I've -- I would -- maybe even use stronger line. But. It is still broadcast primetime time and time and I never heard that before. They're curious if people think about that should just the airport in the viewer the only word that should be I mean the F -- the password if the B word thirty being used the F -- and the answer.

Anti gas station -- -- -- -- two guys have -- truck and I would just drop an F bombs left and right. So more and more in public I'm hearing people cursing like crazy occurs more in your life than you used to I mean. I've always taught my children coming up we always you'd never occurs anywhere -- an adult of an adult can hear you just didn't do. And have and then once I was an adult -- cars anywhere they were kids around naked here you are trying to to -- and all largely because in my profession that I wanna make sure that. I'm not so comfortable using curse words that I averages used one on the radio accidentally. So I try to use them at all because they think it's -- horrible horrible habit to curse all the time. And two I don't want kids hearing -- -- my kids in any other people's as well Mike it's not like cars like an angry. But. So I'll share more of those text messages coming upper and -- take a look at your forecast.

Sports on Friday morning is all about. The NCAA tournament first term -- full of drama with four of the sixteen games needing overtime and a number of double digit seeds pulling off upsets in the south bracket. The eleventh seeded Dayton Flyers set the tone in the first game of the day. Beating sixth seed in state rival Ohio State a thriller sixty to 59 they move on to face number three Syracuse. Who blew out number fourteen western Michigan 7753. This in the 89 game which theoretically should be a close match up. The number nine Pitt Panthers blew the doors off the numbering Colorado taking a 46 to eighteen lead into halftime and coasting to a 7748. Win. The Panthers advanced to face -- Florida who had trouble early on with the number sixteen Albany. But before pulling away for a 6755. Win. Over in the midwest bracket. Twelve feet and these state wolfpack opens up a sixteen point lead against number five Saint Louis with -- about two minutes to play the -- the billikens engaged in a strategy of -- backpack sending NC state to the charity stripe again and again. And these states free throw woes allowed Saint Louis to work there way back and stay in the game to overtime tied at seventy. The extra period to lose did just enough to survive stunning NC state 83 to eighty guard Jordan -- jet says it was teamwork and resilience that won the day. I mean we we we we are paying dividends at this -- -- less -- this is it loses all enough so we just have to stick together come come closer. And try to help. Now saint -- will face the defending national champion global cardinals who survived a first round scare into number thirteen Manhattan Jasper is 71 to 64. It looked like they would see a fifth overtime contest at number ten Arizona State bought all the way back from a 6147. Deficit. To -- their matchup with the number seven Texas that 85. In the closing seconds. But the longhorns Cameron Ridley managed a last second put back of a badly missed three pointer and Texas slipped past the Sun Devils 8785. Texas Coach Rick Barnes says his guys worked together to pull this one out. -- really great team win in. But I said earlier it's them he delighted and excited for our team that. Tough when you have so much respect the came back. Texas will face number two seed Michigan after the wolverines got by the walk for carriers 5740.

Yesterday you were second guessing yourself after you filled -- Iraqis that maybe should have done things differently you're wondering if you made the right decisions but apparently. Thirteen and 310 in a row he did just fine well that the second -- I should have changed it I was in North Dakota State bison you you'd you're telling me how often. Those number five vs number twelve matchups produce upset. And you thought maybe should of picked all of the twelve to beat all of the fives at that -- that really happened. But it happened at least and that it happened two out of three times yesterday I talked Harvard jumped up and upset number five Cincinnati. And North Dakota State. Got the forgot the upset their matchup in these -- the only twelve that lost they lost in overtime. Coming up today Stephen F Austin lumberjacks in the Southland Conference and the other twelve seed that we actually. Did you curse. When. You lost those three games. Not not a really cursing -- apparently the only word that is now off limits for broadcast television. Is the -- for. Give it time they hear the -- -- -- -- broadcaster held -- -- -- a hole one simple word last night on NBC on. Parent I might have let out of summer of all that North Dakota State match and you may finish that race. I yeah I probably finished trying that occurs but on the and then sit here and pretend it never -- Well I was watching the games for the most part by myself so there was no one to a -- bug -- me in the I was in the present that they've heard. The password. Major broadcast channels but not CBS ABC fox -- BC's apparently some of the other. What is off limits now apparently just the F -- and in most cases -- -- -- as a gutter baton do you hear more cursing everywhere you go with or talk about the -- you wanna get to back at 25 minutes more sports.

Thank you Jim for Carl -- a -- and oddly I found two stories today. They can go right it is -- how could they had filed this they are right so you suggested and like magic here it is. The first one. Is a fund raising event for children's -- in Michigan. Wondering how could that end up in the credit. That it fits perfectly into that vial. Participants. With big appetites are being invited to try to eat twenty foot long rot wars that way sixth round at all. Twelve competitors and hundreds of onlookers turned out. Last night for the worst challenge W URL ST but others made -- ballots differently yeah. Raised about 7000 dollars. One now. The proceeds benefit the creativity lab. For the children's museum.

There will be many more -- there's one more coming up that even better fit guy the file are coming up next when we get -- meteorologist Laura -- talent here but first I have to get your predicts at all. About what's gonna happen at the box office and I think there's going to be a heck of a battle. For the top spot the box office this weekend because I think there -- three movies -- -- attract. Very different audiences but significant audiences Muppets most wanted opens always it's going to be bears EG Ricky Gervais amongst those starring in this but he it's full of cameos by huge stars. Apparently everyone in Hollywood as a at least in appearance in this -- I exaggerate you get the point. Divergent opens this is saying that it was very successful series of novels that my fifteen year old daughter. Read cover to cover in no time flat loves the books that she can't wait to seize this. It looked kind of like Hunger Games. A little bit it's PG thirteen in a world divided by fractions based on virtues. The main character learns she's divergent and -- fading in and and its action adventures size five in Texas through that and then there's been the maniac who volume one. And it's not opening in wide release but in many cities and child off. Is the star of these that is not rated movie which is externally full of sex and ID yeah I thanks. With the name -- that's going up against the current all three of those are going up against the current top five mr. Peabody and chairman 300 rise of an empire need to force the and non stop what do you thin guy on his -- I'd I'd do for me it's no problem no problem. I'm garden with Muppets are right Muppets will take number one. You know them. Of the one the first Muppet movies of the Muppets take Manhattan and the Muppets take number one for some reason my brother who was 45 times caught the -- to man. I don't know why and hand them off the statement. Executive as sweet yet we'll talk to you and -- claimants more effort -- Chris Miller joins us from the side of this year's Luke do festival. Remember last year many complaints from the West Bank that it sounded like the speakers were in their yards the music booming across the Mississippi River. Now from the east bank to the West Bank have they done anything to fix that problem crystal tells about that coming up. Own god let's go live to direct the Eyewitness News forecast and as. Happy Friday could. -- -- -- -- but now we made it we did calculation. Yes Republican accomplishment again but to some people making it -- Friday Knoll yeah it hit it either hit different. Internet messages from several locate thought is so thick on Britain's as the worst he's seen in 54 years I. Well he had died as a parent and river re asked him all day and but here downtown not a -- a flawed yet and it. You know it's here and there and kind of got everywhere so it's gonna be one of those mornings weary maybe five all the sudden you just kind driving -- wall of -- -- yeah we bail out -- -- at retail and the national weather services -- -- -- our airports about it sixteenth album miles as hero yet couple hundred feet they're so be very careful because there are spots with that -- north Italy now. Looking great 910 mile visibility. What we had a court today looking at least six today sunny. No rain that no rain today but that's not the case of the weekend unfortunately. Although I don't think it's going to be a -- I know it's not watch a couple of spotty showers. Maybe few thunderstorms both days right -- got about a 40% chance Saturday at a 50% chance Sunday. So you know we at the Louisiana crawfish festival of Saint Bernard if they're earning profits were -- we got -- Irish Italian. Parade on Sunday and we've got tons on radio weekend to get out and not a washout but just -- the -- the punches kind of close by case of a shower pops.
