Now Britain says hey Dave I hit a 100 dollar bill on that a book one time forgot about it and much later about a year later found it. And most definitely he -- from the lottery hundred bucks that you're hidden from yourself. And others as the most exciting for me was when I was young and it was a Tooth Fairy leaving money under the -- yen as some very exciting about that it can't. The only get them you know when your little -- yes lots to do. Get old -- now losing another tooth in the senate deal. Elements as pennies from heaven. And now -- is that sort of a college Bart. They used ice in the journals don't that sometimes we would hide a dollar bill in the ice. It never failed by the end of the -- the dollar bill was gone. I. Not the dollar -- absolutely. Than. Can't live without the forecast that. We're going to be sunny today and breezy with temperatures in the mid to upper sixties this after it's a nice day ahead. But then -- chilly night lows dropping into the mid thirties north at the lake and mid forties on the South -- expecting frost. Possibility airport in North Shore then from Wednesday back up to 63 partly cloudy skies and Thursday were -- up to 73. With 820% chance for a light rain. From the Eyewitness News forecast senator I'm meteorologist Laura backed out. Now -- frost tomorrow morning on the -- sure they told us that we get freezes until April -- just. Supposed to be spring right clear skies 53 degrees now at the airport in Kenner. 55 here in downtown New Orleans -- clear and 47 degrees winds -- column north of the lake. But honest I'm sure there gusting up to twenty miles. Sports time now on WWL the pelicans trying to go for three in a row. LSU basketball trying to stay alive and an IT. This ain't done anything else in free agency does that we have heard from them and it is let's hear from Steve Geller was sports on this -- Monday morning. Happy Tuesday Steve. Yes happy Tuesday David happy Friday morning everyone because the pelicans that look grim for them they were down 22 in the third quarter. But Tyreke Evans helped turn things around scoring 22 of his season high 33 in the second half. And New Orleans rallied for a 1092104. Overtime victory over Brooklyn. Anthony Morrow was also huge for the Pelz and extra frame hitting two key three pointers to put the nets on ice. Evans when he left double team going up Tom -- return. Maybe tomorrow. Triple overtime has started to feel real good now. Coach money Williams credits the W to his team playing great defense after halftime product effort. And look at the numbers some accessories and maybe you were but the bottom line it's on -- there in the general lord blessed us. The pelicans are now five and oh in overtime this season that's the best in the NBA. Over in college hoops SMU's Nick Moore and Dick Russell -- scored sixteen points as the mustangs defeated LSU eight to 67 to advance to the third round of the NIT. The tigers finished the season with the most wins since 20082009. -- baseball's Jared O'Shea has been named the SEC's freshman of the week the South -- improved his record to five in twelve over the weekend. And lowered its five and one over the week and I'm sorry and lowered its ER rate to one point 91 in 33 innings of work with nine walks and 24 strikeouts. The tigers tussle with -- tonight in church in stadium. First pitch is at 630. And the saints were among them nineteen teams that did not receive any compensatory picks for the 2014 draft. -- those are usually awarded to teams that lost. Better free agents during the previous season that were signed. Today at four on sports talk NBA team owner Mark Cuban thinks that the NFL's Reid will quickly lead to its downfall is he right. Plus there's talk of gaining goal posts dunks after touchdowns. As the NFL really stand for the no fun -- I'm Steve Geller and that your early morning look at sports. Let him. Their owners are actually wasting their time discussing whether or not a player should be allowed to dump over the goal post. Yeah that's one of the things propose at the there are considering doing away with the -- -- Duncan many saints fans were upset obviously because that Jimmy Graham signature and I feel like the saints are being targeted once again I only remember one time that Jimmy don't Wear it affected the -- and had to bring -- the latter in the level -- things that all right which was in Atlanta so maybe there's something wrong with their goal -- -- Syriana's Davis Atlantis from mad Jimmy's -- but I understand you know less talented or less. Players with less cops. May not -- to get over the goal posts like Jimmy cannon you do run the risk of them knocking it off of level and then you have an issue. Well drew is gone opened them the finger roll even yes. That's that's not an ethical. Anyway but. Now there was -- time -- -- RA or whatever any of the -- it is more interesting you think that actually impact again well of course they're talking about expanding the NFL season once again and also. Adding. More teams to the NFL post season. Which one on one wild card game right which are of course increased more revenue for the NFL that's right -- -- exactly. And what about the extra point and they'll talk about doing that potential yet his. I believe -- -- -- England patriots have even proposed that maybe they should reach the goal post instead of movie maybe -- Google+ -- rights but I think that's been already shut down so -- they get rid of the extra point day. Backed up -- raise the golf whatever that may do something with it. Yeah I hope they keep it as is honestly just because I like when someone returns and interception for a touchdown and you could say. Pick six to seven doesn't have the same appeal to them and right. Thank you put it to Beckett and when I meant to sports we -- we'll talk about that eligible to land on the baseball diamond tonight that's exciting stuff. Unfortunately ladies and gentlemen Ellis -- network is not carrying the game and not offering it to us to broadcast who use. Did you not hear the -- you.

Stop people are tracked it differently if they think that's right yeah -- to 879 on Friday that I don't Saturday that no matter. That is committed to handle our good bet that I can handle the truth. Three of the way we think about things. -- -- how many calories -- in the food you're eating at all times well it probably would help if you go to -- restaurant. Do you wanna see it on the menu. You know what -- I have to say I think it might change what I ordered you know clearly not there yet it's easy because she think like. Aligning its talent -- bound to be super healthy and in the salad and that in more calories than if you got -- a statement that either drown it in bright intelligent got a cheese on it an -- So yes it might help actually have a calories there. Well the senate health and welfare committee in the Louisiana legislature denies it's debating a -- That would require caloric content be listed on chain restaurant menus so we're -- in everything from fast food places and riots. You gotta get a burger and that'll be right up there on my -- the calories in that burger. And do other sit down chain restaurants it would be mom and pop places that -- if you're seven occasions thrown together stump than. I don't I you know how many al-Qaeda -- -- not necessarily consistent you have to ride the chain restaurants -- yet -- the file formula right now the question is do you want to. To me. When I go out ET the call if it's fast food yeah I know it's an act differently. Right I know it's jam packed with calories I don't I think I need to know just how many things are always going to make me -- -- well. -- what is at. At the past -- -- -- I'm not going to fast food restaurant makes art but -- but it got you're going to need that the right. You know so and they're not that big Mac there's nothing else you want it's just got I get that one might make it. Just don't have time. It happened in the past. Right app -- got to get on and okay -- Just the singled partner with cheese and it's only -- that's. And that. Be grilled chicken wrap actually have fewer calories for that. That's what it's time to eat. Healthier and and it's I would help me you want and yeah. I think it's an could. It's just that right after midnight on getting fact going to. -- a couple you can make it. He dynamic and mentally as well if you're not. At all you know. Or maybe to -- the workers -- that the -- and splurge on the partner but -- the golf development and -- he went public but that's Fries are. The best prize. Somebody somebody -- -- only -- -- -- them -- it's comfort I go and you know yet you're trying to speak I think it's. I'm Laura wants than. I want it thank you are other important about down alive and direct from the -- these forecasts that there's sports with Steve gallery is coming up after that. In the senate is an interesting text messages and 87870 about the the things we've been talking about. I'll share them as well in my text me at 87870. In response to our discussion about the new things that are banned force state assistance debit cards for families who have fallen on hard times. Strip club can't bark and use it to bail them in jail. Is it just is psychic and many other tickets to. Some attacks -- 7070. Was a schoolteacher. Say that the kids at the school who are on public assistance in gaining free or reduced launch. Almost all of them have 200 dollar headphones and 150 dollar shoes. It does seem. Out of -- Sports I'm now on WW -- LSU basketball team with a lot of -- but the pelicans they were right. If you can be out of laxity can you be in black is that a good thing to be in -- I guess in the zone. -- they're out of whack. And at bat. You're off kilter that's bad. So being on kilter and in -- would be good right. Media -- item to confuse god is like it is sports here I'm WWL. Well the Mets jump on the pelicans early Dave but New Orleans would fight their way back from H 12 point deficit in the third quarter. To take down Brooklyn 1092104. In overtime. Tyreke Evans scored a season high 33 points and Anthony -- shook off the coast cold spell to come up clutch in OT. -- the -- with real fluid all wait like this it's -- is not as -- and moral development double leg. It's tripled this year. Head coach Monty Williams had reason to smile as a squad won their third straight contests this problem organize we just -- We hang in there with the -- -- that's a sign of -- care that locker room reputed good team that twenty point comeback is the second largest in franchise history. And the bells are a perfect five and -- and over time this season. Things weren't so hot happy and college hoops -- locally as the -- men's basketball team's season is over. After losing eighty to 67 to SMU in the NIT. On a positive note the tigers finished with a record of twenty and fourteen the most wins since 20082009. One Alicia lefty -- Boucher has been named the SEC's freshman of the week. The -- native earned his first career conference victory with an exceptional performance against Georgia. He worked eight and two thirds innings limiting the bulldogs just one run and three hits with two walks and six strikeouts. The tigers are back in action and take on their rival in state rival -- tonight. First pitch in in -- stadium is at 630. And Tiger Woods isn't sure his ailing back will be well enough for him to enter the masters. For -- assists and she still looks as soon. The Gaza within its that's kind of frustrating thing about -- office. Woods says he's been tried to get ready for the first major his first major of the year he's off to his worst start of his eighteen year on the tour. And last week withdrew from the -- Palmer invitational because of his persistent back page. Today a -- sports talk NBA team owner Mark Cuban thinks that the NFL's greed will quickly lead to its downfall is he right. Plus there's talk of dating gold closed dunks after touchdowns as the NFL really stand for the no Fun League I'm Steve Geller and match early morning look at sports place. -- that it can take the fun out of football do you think that things like this banning gold closed down as indicative of a movement that does make it last on. You know I am all about the being able to celebrate after a touchdown as long as it doesn't get too choreographed like that some there were some. Team celebrations that we're just getting out of him but when. Late last year. The flag was thrown on Lance Moore and Kenny stills for doing. They're they're -- in the end -- I thought that clutched it -- I thought that was still fallen and it shouldn't be really frowned upon. I recently and I still trying to do. A time limit on -- -- and is on did you get the extra point attempt or they'd go for Q off with in the amount of time that's allotted to whatever you want. Within what every team says that coaches may now like best output. The players celebrated that they wanted I just hate it when they're losing by like 42 points they score for their first touchdown of the game and then they celebrated really celebrating one touchdown when you get your. But beat you in my whole thing I have more an issue of players celebrating a first and a I don't month it's gonna celebrate but you get up and -- you know first down like you know look relaxed when she get to the end of the home -- get the crowd right here. And anyway. All right some attack today 7870 -- to avoid the whole worry about sending the goal post -- of leveled go back to the 08 style -- -- Well there's two things for players that -- run into and that of one stick with the one thank you Steve we'll stick with you have more sports and about fifteen minutes here on WWL IMF -- -- now. And interest and discussion has started here text messages -- -- 77 it was talking about how the department town family services in the Louisiana. Has issued new rules banning the use of government assistance debit cards that strip clubs nail salons. Tattoo parlors jewelry stores video arcade bail bonds companies. Nightclubs bars taverns stolen psychic business this and other. And a teacher texted me and said -- Henry I teach school. Most kids in my school. Are on free lunch and breakfast programs but most have 200 dollar had -- and 150 dollar ten issues. That got somebody else to text me at 87870. Says. So you think that headphones. And ten issues come off of my car to my kids get reduced launch and my fourteen year old got headphones. For her birthday. By the way I'm not on public assistance I work full time stop the damn stereotyping.
