And 60 -- -- morning lows not as low as they had been earlier. Sports I'm Alice eve gala and my goodness. People were not not not happy with the -- And these many people were setting -- months of the media. The announcement of who's getting into the skins golf maintenance fees. No definitely when I tweet about that I learned that Aaron Brooks and John Carney were going in folks were definitely. Not happy about the announcement of Aaron Brooks I was surprised at how many people. Reacted negatively about our hope that. They don't boo him in the announcement does come in the superdome during this season yes sometime in November were expecting that that happened right here's the thing and and several people on the flat out they had forgotten. That there was never in the history of the saints' quarterback to win a playoff game. Before there and race. Aaron Brooks did with no previous quarterback can do it. -- Bobby -- could not do. Something Archie Manning could not do and that nobody else -- he won a playoff game he'd beat the rams in the playoffs and he was he was important game he had a great game. So. He did have some very low lights in his career. The backward pass being among -- -- -- operating -- -- yet maximum posted the video of that to our FaceBook page immediately after the announcement. But we'll talk more about that coming up and sports tells the local morning everyone the LSU baseball team is in the Hoover Alabama ready to take -- -- to build this morning in the SEC tournament. Coach Paul and -- says he looks forward to this morning every year because of the competition. Virtually every team that's in this tournament is ranked. It's an outstanding ballclub there's a lot of familiarity with each game that you play but it's also a high level of competition. First pitch for the tigers vs commodores is that 9:30 AM our pregame coverage starts at nine. You a -- yet baseball takes argue well Monroe in the sat Sun Belt Conference tournament this afternoon the -- are riding a seven game win streak. LeBron James scored six straight points to spark a decisive twelve to two run that pushed the Miami Heat past the pacers 87 to 83 at Indianapolis. Tying the NBA's Eastern Conference finals up at a game apiece. James and 22 of Miami's 254 quarter points after Indiana carry a one point lead into the period. He -- says they needed to show a little extra to take this one. -- this was about how -- we want to win this game and we brew prove that we showed you know it wasn't a perfect game by no stretch of imagination fumble we kept fighting we kept digging down deep and number visited a game turn to our favorites of mine he basketball. The Cleveland Cavaliers have won the NBA draft lottery and -- have the number one pick on June 26. The cavaliers had a one point 7% chance of winning the topic while the bucks had a 25%. Chance after finishing with the league's worst record. The bucks a -- second followed by Philadelphia. The sixers will also get the tenth overall pick from the pelicans after last year's trade for point guard Jrue Holiday. And the hornets are back. In shortly it. The franchise has announce it officially changed its name back to the hornets after ten years of being known as the bobcats. The original -- it's resided in Charlotte from 1988 to 2002. Before owner George -- moved the team to New Orleans. Today -- on sports talk Jerry palm of CBS sports at LSU football. Heading to the Capital One able to play Michigan State in his early projections is the import or way off. Which early morning look at sports I'm Steve. -- 524 they've gone Steve -- with you on your radio so let me ask you this and were you shocked when you heard Aaron Brooks. Ands and John Carney were going to be inducted in the -- -- John Carty after looking at his numbers not so much but most accurate right field goal kicker in the history of the rights only 3% of his -- went there are Wright was a key component during the Super Bowl year helping the team below and also meant touring Garrett Hartley of course he had his signature. Screw up. In the -- after the river city relay right he missed the extra point spotting. And now we're ready do that. But that aside. More great moments enough yes aren't so I'm not surprised at all by John -- what about Aaron Brooks was -- a great quarterback in saints history. In saints history you have to look at it and he's got to be I -- in the top three year for which is pretty. You bring a lot of -- -- records when he was here he had huge passing games and Drew Brees broke a lot of Aaron Brooks is records right. He won a playoff game the first ever franchise Internet that we anyways a lot into that. Now allowed to remember the problems he had. That was that team had a lot of problems -- mean. On the has -- there in and of itself other than you know image that became a winning team -- Catholic and Brooks right there were consistently winning team. Drew Brees and give him does he deserve to be insane how will put that out to listeners as well. It's a tough what I think and I think when you when you really start to look at the numbers and what he did with the franchise while this year and look at the other quarterbacks in franchise history. The time you got a human body and I agree with that will give -- and I -- come back -- -- -- more sports on WWL I am not them and that counties the line -- going to text messages. But Aaron Brooks and city losing the suitable coming up on your forecast -- One person -- 878 senators as they built a new stadium there's no way we could -- won. I don't know says I hope they have a blizzard with. And others that look like we're gonna need a new stadium to get another super ball Allen says I'm not angry we just have a Super Bowl so the emotions are mixed this morning forecast. A few clouds around this Wednesday and look for highs warming up to about 87 this afternoon and tonight a little patchy fog lows dropping into the sixties on both sides of the lake. Then for Thursday we're seeing partly cloudy skies highs once again upper eighties and Friday look for highs topping out nearing ninety with partly cloudy skies. For me I would misty is forecast center and meteorologist Barbara tell. Little fog around otherwise 71 at the airport 63 on the North Shore.

Anyway at NFL loses let me go to Betty apple exit out of there or and shiny new stadium. And all that. It's not New Orleans you know would be perfect. If in Swanee in the when he seventeen season which will be January when he eighteen and the NFC championship the saints. Play the vikings for a chance to go to the Super Bowl in Minneapolis. And the saints win -- all that -- be the ultimate. I guess. I just made good Johnson whatever you know and and I -- a lot of fancier. Would prefer that he overeat and host figures who -- rather be at the end up winning one. And -- as I hope. That to the New Orleans tells the league they're never gonna bid on another Super -- see how they like that. Cook it. But someone Els the -- tri Centennial should be about New Orleans not about the Super Bowl that should take precedence. And you know won the super of the 300 anniversary of new -- to be about the -- ball and almost -- they're glad. While we have heard an awful lot about the presentation. That to the New Orleans but on -- as I'm reading even more about it this morning. Apparently it was a knock out presentation. He knows Harry Connick junior and it custom. Zahn. Hi any handing Toronto little pocket watch the time is now. But apparently. To at least. A simple majority of the owners barely majorities we understand it via a new stadium is what matters now and today. Have been consistent -- if you build a new stadium.

Another text message and -- -- -- -- I was more shocked that Aaron Brooks made it into the -- hall of fame and I was that the New Orleans lost the Super Bowl. Minnesota getting the Super -- with another attack methods. Make as much sense as Brooks backwards ass let them freeze. And then a lot of people. Texting me anger about Aaron Brooks getting into the hall of fame. Those that I'll never forget when he threw that backward pass he was horrible another -- and Aaron Brooks are you kidding me -- Aaron Brooks called fame. He was horrible notices after -- big hit he was never the same meet our. That there cheapening the hall of fame by letting Brooks in my goodness. Another Steve -- goes ready you body if you said that after look at all the numbers -- looking at all the data that you think that Brooks does deserve began -- absolutely some of those people that drugs. No way Aaron Brooks -- there. Deserves to get -- take away the playoff win. And why and take away the playoff win in what else that he duty -- an analyst -- I didn't know that one person was responsible for winning that playoff game -- in the hall of fame. It did you know.

After that playoff season -- would they won the plant game he had a bad year or backward past issue. Keep in mind and Mike McCarthy is coach. Left New Orleans to go to Green Bay and he -- went -- right. And battling McCarthy suitable. Added it's an interesting discussion myself are very few text messages and supportive -- with the hall of -- information and much more in sports. On this hump day with a good morning to Steve. Good morning everyone and LSU baseball and Vanderbilt lead on the -- in the SEC tournament today. Since 2008 the tigers have won the conference 44 times and bring a four game win streak into this year's event. Coach pulmonary feels his squad is playing their best baseball of the season. Everybody's roles are pretty much defined their pitching has been solid hitting his eating -- we've played great defense still feel like we're playing about as well as we possibly can play us. First -- between -- and -- and LSU is at 9:30 AM this morning with our pregame coverage starting at nine. The raging cajun to take argue -- wrote this afternoon in the Sunbelt conference tournament. You -- Lafayette has dominated the warhawks this year winning all six previous matchups. Hopefully he pulled off a fourth quarter comeback even the NBA's Eastern Conference finals up -- at a game apiece LeBron James scored 22 points. And Miami pushed past the pacers 87 to 83 at Indianapolis. King James says they got back to playing their brand of basketball. We flew around. Over from another even remember six used to -- one another and we love Eminem wanna dictate what our defense did and that's not -- -- -- -- okay Amendola you know us now we're -- -- -- and every time we lose we always just the first and we can see. Well the Cleveland Cavaliers have won the NBA draft lottery -- again and have been number one pick on June 26. Milwaukee will -- second followed by Philadelphia. The 76ers. Also get the tenth overall pick from the pelicans as part of last year's trade for point guard Jrue Holiday. NFL owners have tabled any vote expanding -- playoffs to fourteen teams. There -- strong sentiment among the owners to add a wild card team in each of the conference to the post season most likely beginning in 2015. Under such a set up only the team with the best record in each conference will get a week off at the beginning of the post season. And a group of retired NFL players has filed a lawsuit. And charges that the league -- was supplying them with the legal and risky narcotics and other painkillers to mask injuries. The suit charges the drugs to numb the injuries and -- the medical complications down the road. Lawyers seek class action status as they say in the filing that more than 500 other former players have signed on to the lawsuit. Today have four on sports talk Jerry palm of CBS sports has LSU football. Heading to the Capital One Bowl to play Michigan State in as early projections. Is -- are important or wave off.

AM first -- our coverage starts at 9 o'clock on WW well I am anathema LSU and Vanderbilt in the SEC tournament. Com. Is that a lot of -- kind of analysis. Of the LSU tigers this season opened as the number one team in the nation right -- they stumbled a little bit along the way -- am embolism midweek game a couple of CC series they didn't do so well. But now here they -- the number three seed in the SEC tournament how do you like their postseason chances as we go under the first postseason game for the NC tiger baseball team. You know I expected a rocky season from -- -- a lot of young players on this roster so to expect him to to stay at that number one spot in the beginning. Was a little too high lofty expectations for folks but. Love the way the tigers are playing right now. They want their last four games in dominating fashion mostly an all averaging more than ten runs a game in the last four right so you have to like that coupled with the pitching that's been consistent all year long. -- eleven but the tigers do and I will say I expect to see them meeting. Florida and it's. A -- game and that should be a heck of a match a break there OK Yasser now. The tigers peaking at the right absolutely. -- Steve gallon that's good news maybe we see a nice run. To the college World Series that we could use some good news yes indeed. We'll let you share more news with a sports isn't fifteen minutes John WWL will show you forecast with you -- this.
