The -- go couple miles away just put her out on the street in the rain and luckily no one ran over the two year old they -- brought the police station but.

So the movie actually it started raining and several spot the whole lot more coming so today today where we can have on and off showers pretty much can have. Have a split where to start off with them often on showers this morning and then toward the afternoon looks like another. Line of storms will develop kind of offer our coastline -- start to -- far away. And says some gusty winds very heavy rain thunder or lightning all of possibility again came through a little bit later last night -- closer to 8910 PM. I think he'll be a little earlier today closer to the evening hours maybe 6567. O'clock or so. But expect another kind of round of thunderstorms for the evening the only difference today Europe and showers that we about their party this morning. All right and so we have rain pretty much on and off most of our day Friday into Friday night what about our Saturday in our Sunday. -- would start to dry out a little -- downpours around tomorrow but more so tomorrow afternoon little hotter tomorrow little -- rain chances drop to about 40%. And in fact it looks a lot drier so that's when he percent app for just a straight thunderstorm.

And throws it away. Yeah hey they should still get the money in it. Well to New York man are suing the New Jersey lottery. After they say they -- whether powerball ticket which matched the first five numbers and was worth a million dollars because the lottery was too slow in updating its web site. They say that after the drying later that night they they had the camera number it was old. Base say it was the wrong numbers they it's a timely manner. They say they have proof that they bought the winner of talent and play the same numbers and they also they know the numbers the serial number of the ticket that the winner. And they bought two other two I don't know notice that -- say they have brutal way but they were they memorize how they say they have two other ticket showing serial numbers that prove they had the winners. I don't know all -- -- if you had a million dollars through in the garbage can -- go back the bank and say. Will that threw away a million dollars and I get another million yankees which it out. You threw it -- and say that by the time they realized it which is just a few hours later in the trash and -- right past -- -- on its way to the landfill. If they have definite proof that I would think that they would most likely he's like a photocopy of actual ticket you know at the very least I don't know that elitist serial numbers and I. But it -- -- -- the million dollar and I might do to try to get the million and I guess that's true what would at this point at the other than a million dollars in a really. They arrived at permanency to this comic that is that lesson learned don't typically that night. Get a self propelled mower and dump earlier lottery ticket hit the help out a lot Lorenzo has propelled with a thank you are -- -- now live and direct from the Eyewitness News forecast with self propelled traffic at. Well self propelled sports. -- -- -- -- apparently it's just a little something to people get all the Disney jump around and jump up jump up and get down. -- -- Steve Miller had just obviously you know Steve Geller and I got veteran who outlook and what a match play I played everybody dance now and that it did instead of jump around Chris Miller got an upset against them text messages they go -- now we jump around. That solves. Anybody who was upset -- jump around a few minutes ago. Steve Miller Steve Miller what is don't wasn't me I don't weekend of really bad right now yes Steve Geller in -- sports and this. Friday morning good morning everybody and for United States soccer there is light at. After the group of death the Americans were able to advance to the knockout stage of World Cup despite a one nothing loss to Germany. The yanks were helped out by Portugal's 21 win over Ghana which needed a victory to unseat the US in the second round. Head coach Jurgen Klinsmann says now is when the fun really begins. Now we really get started once a group is done and another tournament actually stops for. Because knock -- stage is completely different ball game. United States next takes on Belgium on Tuesday. Well a pair of Kansas Jayhawks were taken with the first three picks in the NBA draft Cleveland used their first overall selection to get Kansas forward Andrew Wiggins. And Philadelphia landed jayhawks senator Joseph well MB with their third choice after Milwaukee grabbed duke forward Jabari Parker. Meanwhile the pelicans moved into the second round of the NBA draft to acquire -- the whole point guard Russ Smith. Heated dynamic players -- to two way player just wanting and we are excited about. GM they'll then says that Smith was was drafted by the 76ers with a 47 overall pick in that New Orleans couldn't pass up his defensive proud pop prowess. Knew where would send the rights to last year's second round selection Peter Jackson the Philadelphia. To complete the deal. You'll -- your point guard Alfred Payton was selected by the 76ers. But was -- then to the magic. It also happened so quickly that the cage's star was answering media questions about playing in Philadelphia. Before someone finally told in the news that he was traded to Orlando. The Milwaukee Bucks drafted LSU star Johnny O'Bryant the third with a 36 overall pick. The six foot nine forward averaged fifteen point four points and seven point seven rebounds last year as a junior with the tigers. And Tiger Woods is in danger of missing the cut after carding a three over par in the first round of the PGA's Quicken Loans national act congressional. Woods -- seven bogeys with four birdies in his first competitive round since undergoing back surgery three months ago. The leader currently is Greg Chalmers who shot a five under for a one shot lead over Ricky Barnes. And Freddie Jacobson. Four on sports talk is watching a sporting event better in person or on television which rather see it -- -- the superdome or in your own home. I'm Steve Geller with your early morning look at sport as it did -- has got. Philadelphia it's going to be great I'm looking forward to lips and you just actually he's -- go to Miami I think if I was told I was gonna play in Philadelphia than that I don't know I'm gonna Miami Orlando Orlando aren't even better. I'm go to Florida instead -- -- instead of Pennsylvania. I'm pretty happy. Yeah when I guess the that is very good though but the state tax I think is also in Florida. I believe less. So that's -- story about -- about getting millions of dollars -- what's the tax rate there I don't think without the threat I get a plan Orlando now at Philadelphia congratulations. New Orleans area kids do well on Johnny O'Bryant who played at LSU. -- in the second rounds some things that we had to pay attention to the pelicans did nothing in the draft. There is that when do we get this decision. On whether or not Jimmy Graham as a tight end or wide receiver. Is definitely expected this week since July 15 is just you know hop skip and a jump away and they have to decide. You would think whether he's a tight end or wide receiver to determine that franchise tag to set a base. For a long term deal is this that the opposition and had some meat. In the in grand scheme of things I've figured. You know Rob Gronkowski right now currently the highest paid -- and making it to nine million a season Jamie Graham all right you be willing to give him ten. He's asking for twelve meet in the middle eleven hey bing bang boom we got it. Be that simple but that's playing with funny money. Of course in the -- Yeah you're you're just playing with somebody else's money now -- rounds when you talk about the saints and their money in the salary cap and everything out and -- grant money gets kind of confusing thank you Steve -- talking about. Fifteen minutes with more sports here and -- BWO Steve Geller with -- sports. I -- -- very interesting text messages should that debt be arrested for leaving his car running in -- two year old in the backseat. And -- car being stolen at a New Orleans yesterday and your forecast after -- I'm happy Easter weekend. Forecast. On this Friday scattered downpours around this area this morning and watching for more thunderstorms to work and for the afternoon. -- to stay in the eighties today before dropping into the seventies tonight. Then Saturday's rain chance to start to drop a bit we'll see a 40% -- chance for Saturday after being at a high of ninety. And by Sunday were up to 92 with only 20% chance break straight thunderstorm. -- meteorologist Laura but now we've been asking you should the dead who had his -- kidnapped when he got out of the car the gas station to run -- from it. -- charges one person says yes he should be arrested because without it take my kid out for that reason most of that is child endangerment. Most of it's irresponsible he should face some kind of charge. Happy Friday ladies and gentlemen.
