Eleven minutes after five a -- the early edition WWL first news on this 25. Of June 2014. We've made it mr. Mallard -- the day that. We like to celebrate as the middle of the week because of course it is -- to. So I have to ask you are you ready to do the county I'm ready do you know how to do -- Yes really. You you've taken instructional video yes. While I have no idea that it didn't I just know that. When I played I shot the instructional video really had no idea while -- UT just hope. Our -- to do stuff like this. -- right now what I mean now. There one of these oh whatever of that well I know that -- you notice you aren't gonna take a little practice here so watch the closing at desks. In the -- today because it. Good distance -- And then back to this drivers please don't -- this wider view of operating a motor vehicle. It could be very game and then you just repeat that in various rhythms of bitterness and you're doing today smile I had no idea I just doing this. Say it isn't that. That it looks good it all looks good at end of the listeners think it looks fantastic texting -- -- 878 that they've done a great outlook given. Wait a minute this is radio. -- Lyme Disease you can't. -- listeners that they know better than you were just a different aren't that Mel I was dancing he wore a some attacks and good morning Chris Miller I know it's hard to see over these new monitors are put over there -- no computer monitors everywhere doing those steps. I'd LB do in the steps and a federal court today to argue whether or not. The wheezing and I -- to acknowledge. Same sex marriages performed in other states this is really an interesting debate that's going on across the country and obviously the US Supreme Court will. At some point and -- this issue once again I think it's already been there to some extent. But now we get courts across the country and one here in Louisiana and New Orleans at one now consider whether or not. If two men or two women get married legally. In this state that allows that. If the state of Louisiana -- has to provide them the same benefits here. That. Non same sex couples -- traditional couples for about it. An interesting debate that will take place and obviously this issue was at least considered by the voters of Louisiana just a few years ago. In a statewide referendum and nearly eight in ten Louisiana -- who voted. Cast ballots against same sex marriage saying the state will only recognized marriages between. A man and a woman's so interesting to see what will happen in the district court. But as you pointed out. Doesn't necessarily matter what happens in the district court does it. Now it's got to go to the federal Court of Appeals and is already a similar case out of taxes it's headed to the federal Court of Appeals here. So -- it was going to be -- case is going to be a Louisiana case I don't know if there's one in Mississippi which also be appealed here but than there have been several others and other districts around the country. And yet it's all gonna have to go back to the Supreme Court. It's this is a step in the process. But the arguments today in the ruling that will follow. Will not necessarily be binding. Because of the fact that there are conflicting rulings across the country and eventually this and this will have to be answered once and for Rollins. It's it's. In my lifetime is clearly -- transition in. The country in general with more and more states now allowing and legalizing same sex marriages some states recognizing them but not allowing them and and states like Louisiana which wants absolutely nothing to do with same sex marriage. And by losses they can even exist nor will only -- -- -- and thank you.

Who has emerged as one of the best players in the world over the past year is a biter and it seems -- cereal one. For the third time in his career he is facing potential punishment. For appearing to sink his teeth into an opponent. People what makes this guy gets OK bites another player. Feel you must be big Mike Tyson plant. In -- apparently. Yet of what -- the fact that this was a note you know problem with this player and you're wise in a big into a lot of trouble right now he's the leading goal scorer. And will likely miss the rest of this tournament I can't see. VO league allowing him back to play activists. And it's kind of I made this one you can't make this stuff up knowing if you you see that apple would actually happen the whole video. It's like a shark attack he's as he's going for this guy. He seeks not just. These -- have already and -- yes it's. Slide tackle on his cleats as one thing I mean some players in nasty indeed that that you knew he. And that and he he would again. Are -- -- once -- get a -- but it will be without their leading scorer and -- my Kamal a four year old most not to do that. They accuse the ballistic about it but at a sports coming up -- 25 minutes here at WWL I am FM and downtown. Meeting early. I text and hits have idiots -- which they do with this guy. It should be banned from the rest the World Cup while. It's 77 -- thoughts. I don't know what else to other than your forecast is that. And it's apparently Mike Tyson has a sense of humor because he did tweets -- about the situation with this fighting that's why. Our says I guess any part of the body is up for each thing that he was accused as you know biting off the -- Evander Holyfield's ear and accurate does do the McDonald's and ergo why would weeded. If you feel hungry come take a bite of a big Mac they sent that directly to use more. And I your forecast well what.

President pull his teeth but think they may pull his ability to play. And may be gone for the World Cup competition. Because of them biting incidents. Spells out at all plays out. Just to still has me shaking my head wondering -- -- those cameras everywhere on the field has been busted for those points before. Makes him think it's located take. Opponent in the World Cup and that he won't get caught. These things I'll get away with this. Anyway so there is that -- -- if LeBron James had been someone he would be wasting -- championship trophy in May be. Did that might unite we remember Mike Tyson bite Evander Holyfield's ear. Did he win. Note the refereed called the match in order holy because of the year goes by so -- never win. There ego folks that's the moral of this story although. It turns out that are wade did win beat Italy beside the enemy and losing their best player and -- as a result did you hear the story entities and terrorism recently about -- -- them mummified body and a man hole. -- lived on the autopsy this was back on May nineteenth. Where they found the remains apparently it opened up the mantle covered some mark in his in his body and -- been there for quite awhile the -- as at least a year maybe do. And try to figure out how does this guy get in there and die what was he doing. -- side. Of the man -- dying well yes that apparently now the coroner says he was electrocuted. The medical examiner says the man between the guy between one and two years before his remains were found. And that he was at the time of his death. Holding a pair of bolt cutters and an underground high voltage utility vaults and they were cut copper wires near his remains. So putting two and two together investigators believe that he opened up the mantle went into it but -- pulled the cover back on our. If -- didn't whoever put it back and it knowing it was in the and was trying to steal copper wire. Form. -- -- thank you mr. president of the wireless field that we usually try to cut the power to bankers of the loss of an -- now I don't that they don't know any of that that they do you know -- into the corner. The -- it tempting to. Take the copper wire and they believe that led -- -- electrocution. And for at least two years -- stayed in the Mandel. Nobody knew where he was and had time to -- drive here a minute and it cured him like a black forest I hate to. But someone's -- in the five Albert. -- belong in the wrong with people file.

I'm glad it's Wednesday it is making it out of. I mean -- that apparently everybody that's in there and I think. Rocket and hair and I feel obligated again. That I should now if you're driving right now folks please -- gently any everybody else you feel relentless yeah probably probably -- -- -- that and other -- accidentally -- -- while -- -- here. Use common sense that man definitely like you would if there's water on the road you use common sense before you drive into a flooded roadway system tractor that's incredible that's what common sense would dictate I.

It was she might keep this way to get better. The unidentified woman's actions were reported by others you patent -- -- jumped the barrier and herders singing. To the animals.

He was recently caught throwing things to alliance and was told not to do it again. And then returned jumped the barrier singing into the -- attempting to beat them cookies and this is still don't know. You know why they think he did this but I do know that at the Memphis -- they have a sense of humor because they -- about it. With the hash tag cookies are for people. I want cookies now. Your favorite cookies. Like sugar wafers sugar wafers. Like sugar cookies Vanilla wafers. They're like you know wafers with a sugar in the middle. -- -- an -- long and like rectangular if I have my druthers of any cookie it's going to be a oatmeal raisin cookie. If it -- Girl Scout Cookies got to be attacked along with the a lot the what's with the coconut. With that call -- ways yes about is that the author is pretty amazing pretty amazing job like cookies not people sports with Steve -- Good morning everyone will year two under coordinator Rob Ryan could prove to be even better for the saints defense as players are more familiar now with his scheme. Linebacker Curtis Lofton things they can be the best in the league you know losing -- what you gotta do is a sex nature. Just go with the -- Is -- true essence allow -- to make plays. Well -- has charged Luis Suarez providing Italy defender Georgie mentioned LB during -- -- one nothing win over the Italians in the World Cup. If the disciplinary committee -- war is guilty of assaulting an opponent to be banned for at least two matches and up to a maximum of 24 months. Looking at the rest of the World Cup scoreboard Columbia dominated Japan's 41 and one group's C. England played to a scoreless tie with -- the Rico which had already qualify for the next round. Greece advanced after taking down the Ivory Coast who won. -- Tiger Woods says he fully expects to contend in this week's Quicken Loans national in his first competition since back surgery at the end of march we -- -- -- future. Weeks here and -- and it's not nothing major nothing that's probably you. Observed with the physical life we look on video and what I'm feeling I'm doing and it looks the same as it did before. Woods added that he's returning to competitive golf earlier than expected your original plan was to be back for next month at the British Open and David Patrick been promoted to assistant head coach of the LSU men's basketball team. He had been a member of head coach Johnny Jones -- staff for the past two seasons and was involving game and practice coaching responsibilities. As Willis doubting and recruiting. West Virginia beat Vanderbilt 72 to force a third and final game in the college World Series. That team will go and get under way tonight at 7 PM in Omaha and -- is wrapped up their eight game homestand with a 621 victory over Sacramento. Therefore on sports -- out of the 32 teams in the NFL who has the best roster and we're Davis saints ranked. I'm Steve Geller with your early morning look at sports 550 Q do you think the saint Steve. It is accomplishments were -- broke an idea of top five defense and can -- be number one as several players have indicated they wannabes this season. I think the things defense is definitely. How I I would really wanna say they have more talent. On that side of the football and actually the offense it's it's kind of hard when you have Drew Brees as your quarterback but as a whole. That's saints defense is impressive from the front to the back now especially. With the additions of Gerris -- in the second secondary hopefully his back injury doesn't limit him out of training camp at all which we're expecting but. They have the ball -- They have a defensive front that has been able to get the quarterbacks out came Jordan and junior -- were ranked in the top five by the NFL network. As a -- pass rushing -- was in the NFL. And you have to be excited that they were able to get to the quarterback is getting more turnovers now if they can increase that number I don't see why. They can't have the top defense in the league which is scary to say it could have been number one defense. And the number one offense and hopefully that leads to the Super Bowl victory that you would princess -- although the charges did that not too long ago and for some crazy reason. He didn't make -- with them on defense and office. Right how -- happy it doesn't make any sense statistically. Whatever it is what it is that's why the games are played on the field not on paper. Testament text and it's 7870 white chocolate macadamia now with Hershey's chocolate campuses wow wow -- -- with Hershey milk chocolate I'll. Milk chocolate chips got it. -- -- chocolate macadamia I don't concern that any cookies now -- in on now taken and I those -- and Longoria especially the double stuffed chocolate filling. Dipped in melt off Orioles got out of hand though with the top amount of late and there's an -- put out different. Flavors of -- Mean to land management. Crisscrossed and -- it and whatever bank is able -- fifteen minutes and more sports here on WWL. Mean double talk more cookies deficits. Someone text -- 7870 asking me what song. That there. Was that woman singing I've read several articles about this gas so far and I still cannot find out what song it was. But apparently she was singing it very loudly. One person NASA it was a song from the Lion King I don't know -- also don't know if that was the lion sleeps tonight though will continue to research that Koreans if we can find out when -- actually it states 7872 subway has the best -- cookies out -- And those renders things those are pretty darn good it's always mean mean by them when I'm just trying to get out of there with a five dollar foot long and they wanna buy cookies your forecast. Mainly cloudy skies today -- look for that rain up 50% chance developing as early as late this morning and especially into the afternoon and evening out the -- to cloud cover. Will keep temperatures a little cooler today with highs in the upper eighties. Loose tonight in the mid seventies then tomorrow rain chances still high 60%. For scattered showers downpours and thunderstorms. -- Smart around 87. What we did back off on that rain chance a little bit on Friday down to 40% with a high of 89. From the Eyewitness News forecast center I'm meteorologist -- -- tell. -- were killed in plastic throw. It in the jungle the mighty jungle line. One person text me acne 78 Saturday. Content Sandy's with Mel on the verge of -- are -- -- -- -- really call buddy waters and another person is the paper and a cookie not present text cookie. In my best cookie monster you know that little. She's. I didn't realize until we started talking about how much I love cookies cookies are good things. One -- about the woman who tries to feed the cookies to the lions while singing ignorance can be educated crazy can be medicated but there's no cure for stupid well put.
