A viewing -- to Steve Geller -- Steve cool we have made it yes congratulations from the university graduates go on surviving the work weekends. Plunging head first into the weekend. -- has been -- good morning everyone the LSU baseball teams currently riding a five game win streak. But things didn't look so hot for the tigers just two weeks ago they dropped four in a row coach Foreman -- stresses that in this game you have to be able to handle the highs with the -- It was or short term bump in the road. And we may have another -- -- -- who knows but you know you don't Jarret your season based on one way you judge it on fourteen weeks. -- she welcomes Arkansas to Alex box stadium this weekend for a big SEC -- showdown. Also on tap this weekend -- -- -- host the University of Arkansas Little Rock wall Tulane welcomes rights detergent stadium. Disasters were swept at home by Oklahoma City -- in the finale by the scored eight to this he's losing streak is now it said it. Bill Haas is the leader through one round of the masters us open with a four under par that puts him one stroke ahead of Adam Scott Bubba Watson and -- we -- to see him. Seven others are two strokes back in Phil Mickelson is eight shots off the pace you can see complete masters leaderboard by going to WW dot com. The pelicans have shut down Anthony Davis and Eric Gordon for the remainder of the season. Davis has been suffering from back spasms and is averaging 21 points ten rebounds and three blocks in his sophomore season. Gordon will -- arthroscopic surgery on his left knee next week. And Southeastern Louisiana University has named. Lateral replaced Jim Yarborough whose contract was terminated after 2013 2014 season. After nine years as the head coach today F -- on sports talk only four games remain in the pelican season what grade do you give coach Monty Williams in the team. And at 630 here LSU baseball take on Arkansas at seven you have a choice tiger baseball continues in the big 870. Were you the pelicans vs Oklahoma City a 1053. WWL left them I'm Steve Geller and that your early morning look at sport. I -- three -- on Steve -- with you on your radio Alex box are Alec box or Alec box do you pronounce the name of the baseball stadium and on the LSU campus the only person I -- call it Alex box stadium is simple -- And everybody is apparently it's named. Four years Sammy home Alexander box Simeon -- CEO and Alexander box a former -- US. And apparently for years and years -- call Alex box this is the old one they built -- new one -- but. Sometime in the ninety's based on everything I've looked at on the Internet. They learned that men Alexander's. Nickname all of the -- -- Al his buddies called him and his friends called and Alec or Alec even though is full middle name is Alexander. So apparently that's when it started that this isn't what we should -- Alec boxer -- box I guess technically you could really be right either way. I guess you know the town of Alexandria and central Louisiana -- frequently called -- And I don't know -- that -- today gone up military you know what's going on ballot. In even though it's Alexander's. Home glad we got that. Not the -- at all. So I guess you're right either way but folks if anyone has really passionate about this text -- -- 878 avenue in the you know how you pronounce that. And why. The pelicans. Said an -- maybe Anthony Davis. Shouldn't play the -- he had a bad ankle use them back spasms he's really been banged up the last couple weeks they're not going to the playoffs and have only. Got a couple of games. Just four games remaining docents and damaging your greatest asset even further. So getting paid which -- some people argue is getting paid he should work and that's what money Williams actually -- on Tuesday hey we get paid to play basketball games but I guess they. And maybe the back the doctors looked out and said hey we need to get a little more rest here. And it's just the wise thing to do for the team and we'll see what happens they got a tough. Four games left and could end up. Going out this season on a ten game losing streak with which which will be really unfortunate. Who cares what difference -- program. Well I don't think how many games you win or lose in the final ten of the season -- anything that happens next to some kind of positive momentum going it has some Democrats have really lasts all through the summer we ought to be remembered for a ten game losing excuse -- and remember this is. We -- whether there. Looking like a beautiful story to the weekend today will look for mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies starting -- just a tad cool in the fifties and low sixties but we'll end up around 78. With this afternoon. Evening temperatures will slide back into the sixties and tonight lows will be in the low sixties. For tomorrow starting off with a bit of patchy morning fall and then high around eighty degrees. Another great day a mixture of clouds and sunshine overhead and it 10% chance for a shower. -- story pretty much on Sunday highs around 81 and 10% chance for rain pretty Eyewitness News forecast center and meteorologist.

It's Friday to you and yours -- -- keep happy Friday the well thank you I appreciate that it's a holiday every Friday here on the early edition well for us is we're glad you can -- celebrated with a fantastic forecast. It's really looking pretty good at this weekend so I I remember a lot of French Quarter -- being really nice you know at least and I can spring weather. During that weekend at me you know we could have that storms this spring storms. But a lot of times Italy with a respectable whether no exception for this week I'd there -- actually no rain in the forecast right well I did include 10%. I see flights and operate your backside JFK have been a pop up showers -- that it wouldn't. You got it at a pretty -- you'll have southerly winds that'll be a little bit I'll have a little more moisture out there are still Casilla few sprinkles in some spots I really don't think team. So other than that temperatures right around eighty every day. Pretty much -- 78 and the weekend will eat. And the rain doesn't come until next week it might mean it went went to go back to work the rank him. Yeah exactly so Monday we have that higher -- chance at these showers and thunderstorms on and so what are you gonna do this week. There's so many choices French Quarter festival. Rob Barry festival Irish Italian is playing us rated so much more -- -- this human dimensions we've listed on our website that. If you got to work done.

Says that as a catering kitchen AV equipment dance floor ample part gang and you even -- wedding outside of the sewage treatment plant. Is that what you've always dreamed it where -- raw -- from people toilets. Flows and they clean that up before it up in the water well like if I had it it would not all that great officials insist there's no motor. The entire process is is contained but where you would actually say I do is just steps away from where the flushed material is coming into the -- Is still is a -- I think that would be I'd you know know the end they've been offering it for rent for about seven months so far. One couple on the hook the sewage treatment plant. For it and fuels the -- prize here you -- 2000 dollars for eight hours that's pretty darn good compared to a lot of the wedding venues around here wow eight hour everybody heard an eight hour wedding -- Going you parts made.

Mean in a forklift get all the sports in this weekend Steve knows that after this. We're talking about the calls or. Congressman Vance McAllister to resign nephew is caught kissing a married Stafford he also married father of five. Simon Says if a doctor a lawyer a gas station attendant or even a radio personality were caught in extramarital affair. Would we expect them to resign from their job. Is there a difference I resorts between a gas station attendant even radio personality doctor -- or congressman who's elected by the people. Lot of people wondering why the governor of the great state of Louisiana Bobby Jindal is calling for McAllister and he never called for David -- to resign when he admitted. It is in the after he was found to be on the phone list of the DC madam of the discussion continues and so far my favorite text of the morning. Talking about this sewerage treatment plant that is offering weddings. -- text -- at 8787. -- says sounds like I do do. -- -- You go you I would go about getting marriages who think Clinton. While as that it could be a wedding got to go to the toilet. If that that's real -- in Seattle let him get registered it was. -- get a good bartender at great speed and if they can't smell it.

Phenomenal sports this week and he got the masters he had -- baseball you got much more to tells all about with -- happy Friday to Steve Geller. Yes indeed happy Friday everyone a four game losing -- to and the month of march may have rattled LSU baseball fans but not the team. The tigers are currently right now a five game win streak and -- pulmonary says he's always believed in this ballclub. Felt like we had a good team in league history an anchor -- a little bit of burnt -- Schedule and some tough breaks last week and -- a long -- there's no question about it but I feel like you know we've come out of that he played well. Arkansas comes to Baton Rouge for a big SEC west rivalry this weekend. Well -- efforts only win this season remains from opening day as disease dropped their seventh game in a row by scored eight to two to Oklahoma City. Anthony Davis and Eric Gordon will not soon to begin the season for the pelicans both are dealing with injuries.

And Lance Armstrong has given sworn testimony. -- several people he says knew about his performance enhancing drug use insisting he didn't pay anyone for any organization to keep his doping a secret.

Which early morning look at sports I'm Steve Geller just thanks to keep them. And its editors of the treatment plan offer catering yes they did. And have a big kitchen right there at all and if so they should operate the Pu platter. Who. -- a great weekend a sport it's LSU baseball. A lot of people have been packing about -- -- baseball they lost a three game series and then they lost one midweek game. And that they've been winning all season long and they won last weekend's series they won their midweek game this week. But still a lot of questions for coach moment there he said it's fourteen weeks of the season come on we had one bad week and -- thing is I think a lot of people are still used to the old style of gorilla ball that -- used to play would Jack Campbell about the part but it's just not that way anymore McCain bats and I changed the bats it's harder to do that they made intentionally. Made it -- to do that and so. They go on her -- yet you look at the tigers pitching staff and they continued to diamond dominate our Nolan has a point 47 ERA right now which is unbelievable. It's a what you what's on your top of your sports agenda this weekend I mean I know you wanted to French Quarter festival strawberry festival may be Irish -- lenient sprayed bit. From a sports perspective.

If there on hold your boom boxes up over your head in the around. So. Anyway they did the rocker hall of fame induction kiss Nirvana. Bruce Springsteen's E Street and amongst those hall notes. Peter Gabriel. Cat Stevens and Linda Ronstadt -- into the rock and roll hall thing you know what amazes me every years when I hear the list of inductees into the hall of fame is that. These folks are already in the hall of things that really there and adding yet but if they put everybody in -- then there'd be no one left to put it right. So anyway obviously very emotional. That'll be televised coming up. Nirvana I think. Obviously the most emotional. Being inducted into the all of that. Lady and gentlemen I hope you have a fantastic. Weekend.
