I got a couple of more in the news on the price of coffee going up one person -- made it seven its services. We only buy Starbucks once a week between my wife and myself we pay an average of fourteen dollars. No wonder you only do once a week. Although I think people who go to coffee shop for the star boxers. Community or wherever you go and buy that big cup of coffee -- all the fancy fancy stuff and it -- 678 bucks.

Can't just -- more downpours later this afternoon like yesterday you know just pop it up to 3:4 o'clock. And that some of them some of them could be heavy get you know this that the time of year this is New Orleans street flooding is almost a rite of passage here so. Watch out for that again we're getting some really got crazy photos and the weather center yesterday just lake view area uptown and out toward batteries and street flooding that. Don't drive through those flooded street. Yeah I wish there were some agencies that regulated the term those streets. Yeah because some people consider an inch of water in the street street one some people consider three inches street flooding some -- and now it's got to be we can't drive there -- to be street plotting so you know summit called standing water some people call it findings of the book called street funny I'm not sure what -- Why it. But I know that -- A little bit different ponting is when you're on the -- state you can count as theaters I mean it's not floodwaters that maybe there's so the water that kind of gathering an even some rain so had he can't run off that quick and so. Even at night your plane opening yet for that but on the other but street flooding straight up just there's water in the street. But he shouldn't drive down the street -- but again a lot of -- coming down and all the time puke on my streets flooded how much water pocketed two inches. Although I ever have that happen you know all the time -- -- people -- history -- photos it is flooded out people out here Bob the tailpipe is going to be like -- -- more got to be worried it looks like a ripper on the street. I -- streak river flooding reader river between. I had to some streets get to that today with a bill -- any ran -- but it via an everyday this week it that they import taxes that scattered downpours after little better chance tomorrow you sent. You know the better to its partners. It is more about now. For senator to Los Angeles. -- put up some new street signs. And -- the parking reached at all. And more signs that literally quote one minute part. They want our park right yeah I was posted near the intersection. On Vincente boulevard and Montana avenue. The photo assignment viral online eliciting amusing and obvious that an outrage Transportation Department spokesman says that the sign was a typo not a rank. Andy it was supposed to be 62 parking it was supposed to be your -- in sixty maintains that aren't that they are people you know -- Sharon. And they're gonna be you know they'd say that they're gonna change it gonna you know -- out for the correct thing -- that they still have some parking people go around and. Well the good news is right that it they have now replaced the sign that's the ultimate of the stories that now says one out were partying. Instead of one part about their effect. You know people get stuff done well out on man and they did it about a minute. Really minute credit -- case that yet one minute parking united parked there I'm gonna run out of -- -- you're gonna come back. People want it out of the person who made the sign madness -- the person who put the sign up not note. People who -- -- hate stuff on the ground or whatever and it it pistols school cross me yet. It happens people are not pay and high gas but yet I got a ticket. I guess that would parks and while we even chances. One minute harms public all automated and it put it in the computer somebody clicked the wrong button accidentally and -- got that -- this business our eighth at one minute or it will bring it all laws to make the -- -- -- That's how it got. Definitely Laura advocate. But outlined in the right to work -- -- and more than a minute of sports government. The -- since -- street flooding is considered when the water minimally covered the street from -- occur. Some of Boris and -- can't drive through it if it's one this as just any water from -- quicker we can -- do that. What Kennedy drive through sports now here will be WL Steve Geller not Monday taken away. Amen and good morning everybody LSU football comes into this season with a ton of questions on offense as the tigers lost -- starting quarterback -- leading rusher and top two receiving targets. To the NFL. Although head coach Les Miles has recruited well ESP and college football analyst Paul -- feels he hasn't been on Nick -- level. Our future -- -- for the program has definitely slipped a notch I think in Saban I mean I was signing the book feisty spurred this you have if you ever lose essentially amazed at the border because six or seven straight years. Postings have signed linebacker Todd Davis and wade injured quarterback AJ Davis. Todd Davis an undrafted free agent 2013 -- at Sacramento state and -- 45 games with 351. Career tackles. Nine and a half sacks four forced fumbles and three interceptions. Brazil and Mexico have secured spots in the knockout stage at the World Cup may Moore scored twice in -- for one round of Cameroon Mexico beat Croatia. Three to one. The Netherlands finished on the top of those group. -- finishes second in the group and also advanced to the knock out round. Defending champion Spain salvage some World Cup pride with a three nothing victory over Australia in the last match at that tournament. It's only there there was not only victory of the opening round for Spain. Spurs forward Tim Duncan has decided to exercise the option on his contract. And will return next season. To make about ten point three million in the final year of the two year agreement that was drawn up specifically. To -- San Antonio financial flexible flexibility. Duncan's decision comes after 38 year old -- whispers when their fifth NBA championship in sixteen years. Over on the diamond Vanderbilt opened the best of three college World Series -- by holding on to beat Virginia nine to eight. Sacramento's -- real men belted two homers to lead the river cats past his efforts thwarted two. Today apple on sports -- the NFL network -- him Jordan and junior will let fifth best pass rushing duo. Attitude just scratched the surface and rob Ryan's system and would you rather the saints lead the league in touchdowns or takeaways -- Steve -- with your early morning look at sports. So what do you think LSU winds up this season no one else thinks that there -- top 25 team apparently that they followed a notch do you think this tiger team has success this season or have they dropped enough that four. You know. No matter what happens with this program -- year at a lot of people if let's smile seemed to come under some fire and scrutiny every single season but manages to always get this team to ten wins. At least. Every single year. I fully believe that this team will be able will be a ten win team. They'll probably finish third in the SEC west. And I'm looking forward to seeing what's gonna happen with the quarterback battle obviously but also what letter -- that's gonna do his freshman year and how much he contributes third in the SEC west. That's a drop off. And did not not would deathly tiger fans are used to and everyone expects number one all the time but the -- double digit wins it definitely in the cards for -- you. Thanks David talked about fifteen minutes more sports on WWL I am a famine that. 555. Times before.
