Mining very I think what -- Gas as bigger holiday in the US -- is in Mexico. And here all of means is drink a -- today that's right that's not the literal translation but that it's become to me. So got to have some chips whether it's her arms and salsa ago Schumer may be little bean dip to. And let's get our whole -- a lot of other you go and it. Thoughtful and a lot which is part of and it's a lot anyway what does that I don't know congratulations.

You know the people of New Orleans is so unbelievable. Through everything through thick and thin I mean not only of the people who -- stood back up. But we came together as a people and really got unified and decided to win. And I'm really optimistic about the future. I think we have a lot of challenges ahead on this but I have no doubt that because we have a new way to New Orleans and working together as one team one fight. Really making things happen I think progress in the last two years has been significant we have a long way to go but. We should not lacked confidence that we can actually get things done now because we know we know how to win and I hope we keep doing it. Now there -- a lot of details in your inaugural address coming up good in a nutshell what is the next four years. Mean to you. Well I think when we got it for years ago we were into an -- in the past and I think we pulled ourselves together and I think we've we've stopped the bleeding we turned around I was moving forward. I think the message that today is that we can't take for granted. The reason we're winning now is because who have gone to gather and we'll put aside our differences have been tough minded that would don't we wanted to make a sacrifice if we're -- to do that. I think for years and down -- 300 anniversary really going to be proud of the city that would produce for the rest of the world.

Their dog and a named reckless -- in it they adopted back to their own dog from sandy. All. I just -- -- the -- there so we're in dad's the last. Too many questions that no advances hate it that's not me I don't know what and although I will mean people it's like protect -- yes he had an analyst got a few bucks and then -- in the dog -- -- yen making finds the right way but still that's that's an amazing story.

But the chances are -- -- percent to get that actually. -- -- 5:49 good morning people are still texting like crazy day 7870 about the fact that I and David Blake. Both its fighters in our showers this morning had to figure out what to do about it I watch mine down the trainees marches with -- toilet paper. One person warn me that the people for the ethical treatment of animals on -- after me. Another president said that. We shouldn't kill spiders because they eat 300 mosquitoes each and now I've added 300 mosquitoes to the population. Somebody else that personally I'd prefer to be in the shower with one spider than 300 mosquitoes. I'd pass and had no we had to pick one or the other. I'd prefer to be in the shower without any insects and all of us at verdict in the shower alone but that's another topic altogether I'm not going there now I am going to sports. With Steve Geller and its draft week and LSU tigers played the baseball games over the weekend much Morgan mourns the. Good morning David good morning everyone Texas say NN's Ronnie -- provided the winning run for the Aggies. As a solo home run and eight giving help to take down LSU by the score 43. The tigers lost their first series it's a sweep at Florida in late march. And -- pulmonary says coming not coming through with runners in scoring position of course the tigers in College Station. It was a frustrating you know because I felt that we just got a little bit more because of one. Each of the games. LSU is now 3513. And one on the year and thirteen ten and one in SEC play. Do you well -- -- a baseball team came up short in their bid to take all three games vs Arkansas State. The -- dropped the finale by the score of six before and now 43 and seven army here. -- Blake southern miss three nothing taking to a three games in that series this effort loss at around drop falling fifteen to twelve. For the most powerful and intense NBA playoff seasons in recent memory. Has now has the San Antonio Spurs in Brooklyn nets advance into the conference semi finals I'm winning -- game sevens. The spurs closed out an otherwise tight series with a laugher as Tony Parker scored 32 points at 119 and 96 beat down of Dallas. The nets pulled out a 10421043. Triumph at Toronto Joseph Johnson scored in the second half with 26 points. But Brooklyn blew most of its ten point lead in the final six minutes and didn't secure the victory -- until Paul -- blog Kyle Lowery shot. From the -- on the final play here's how it sounded a Brooklyn -- radio WFAN in New York. Six we just. Right into the ball. -- so why -- they didn't allow we're. Well against Derrick Williams cracked well he's certainly. It was to -- -- -- gets back to what extent of it right the guy that's ahead. That's pride that. Over to NASCAR we're Denny Hamlin took the checkered flag and an accident -- parents for 99 Sprint Cup race in Talladega Alabama. It's the 24 win of his NASCAR career. And IndyCar will compete in the New Orleans area and 2015. He -- -- races coming to the two point 75 mile road course and know the motorsports park in Abigail. Today a four on sports talk one of the top three positions the saints need to address in the NFL draft. Then at seven it's the pulmonary shadow I'm Steve Geller and that your early morning it's. Board's size fifty Judith on Steve -- with you on your radio you know much about racing. Very little. Tied to what kind of cars will they be racing on the West Bank IndyCar is and you can be open wheel cars not the NASCAR type of cars are -- -- -- that movie with a guy from floor. I don't know who hit the Ron Howard movie. -- -- And I don't know much about -- hasn't seen that is the one with the guys in with a helmet I can expose the element to the big big tires on the back right one in the front yeah -- -- it's draft week. Some ask your question everyday at this time about the upcoming NFL draft arise should the saints stay at 27. Should they trade up. In the draft if there's a player they really want or should they trade away that first -- for more later. It's -- mean if they're gonna trade up there's only one person I would go after and that would be Sammy Watkins wide -- radical ends in. Drew Brees throughout the years has never really had a true. Number one wide receiver I think what can it be that guy in the -- really need a new infusion of youth. Will more used on the until I receiver I would there -- -- again I would think in the top five yet locked in so I would caused quite a package of dates that. So what do you think they will. -- all said and done I think they stand pat and end up at the 27 -- not doing anything they might end up doing a little maneuvering later on in the draft but. If anything I would seem trading back to get more -- even imagine Thomas like. The wheel and deal yet exactly that you just never know them I. All right thank you Dave I do know you'll be back in fifteen minutes more sports here on WWL. Am adamant that count we've got your forecast to get this Cinco De -- go one. -- -- I have to which is very very happy birthdays in mind. Second friends that. Who arrived on this earth sixteen years ago today. Happy birthday baby I love you. We're gonna blow it out this coming weekend and really have a big party. OK okay. Thank you very delighted. I your forecast from the at Wednesday's forecast for this Monday partly cloudy skies and warm temperatures 84 later on before dropping tonight only to around sixty on both sides Italy. And then warm again for your Tuesday with partly cloudy skies a high of 84 and Wednesday a few clouds mixed in with that sunshine and high of 85. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- 93% humidity clear and 63 at the airport in -- 58 in Slidell visibility down a quarter of a mile and bell case because of fog less than that in home -- of thought. I think in my text 87870 supporting myself and David -- -- -- had to kill spiders in the shower this morning saying we get the right thing. One person that we've had caught the spider and released an outside coming. I was with Michael government pumpkin thing whatever you do and Halloween choose like six and a bunch of kids it around. And the kids at Ellis spotted elements as the spider this guy -- -- -- strategies -- huge guy comes up with a size fourteen and -- -- says all take care of it. And our audience what exactly kids were appalled by its way to get businesses and volatile -- -- some good and it's this little -- -- did you see this big giant fourteen booted it seems like went just as well and for the next four when he sits -- and -- made me think of it yet written about the inauguration obviously ready jaguar opinion polls throughout the morning are you optimistic or pessimistic looking ahead to the next four years and Crescent City. -- don't talk about dumb wedding season -- -- average gift you -- is how much people spend a hundred bucks. Maybe achievement I'm below aren't a below average when -- -- that a lot more common Tommy's neck that agreement and I am.
