To challenge your body to stay hydrated increase the heat and I think they figured that out they may be matters it is escape patent. Yeah comfortable -- I think maybe get tougher being at work harder and longer with them indoors about it and the tree and see if that's exactly do you and your -- You have Wi-Fi have a wife and I think that's a wonderful thing in the stated that we are not playing that dating I would not going to be on the market out there trying to find and decades and go through the whole process because it's to it's very confusing and -- these days because you have all the on line dating you have while the online dating services. You can still go the old fashioned route and meet someone it's at work and -- nurture. Wherever at a bar but. To me widgets there's too many options too many questions too many troubles you heard about this guy.

With the big burly guy. Who. Says -- He starts fighting this guys like John -- -- Mike -- a lot of money and effort time and whose car. If he's in the think he's restored pretty well. And they start fighting and another guy walks opera on the other side of the so guess what -- -- him start him. Now line he's left standing there on the sidewalk and middle history. Without his refurbished it I think its -- Mercer sexy girl -- she still the car with two. Also. She got into and it was all a setup according to police -- W just one to steal his car.

Don't or did the day before -- -- A pause there you've made it selling maybe you worked in the that your right now it's time to think of the right word no I don't well I'm I'm happy it's Friday and -- I now and you know there's no rain out this morning that I had to deal wet snow just along the coast a couple of showers it's quiet in New Orleans it's like he's seen this morning. And do we expect more than that yesterday we -- crazy -- early in the earlier in the day yeah I think as the storms they'll be a little bit later on acting quite as much activity is sworn in effect it yesterday morning so. Eight it -- took these early as mid day 11121 o'clock or so and they cut into the afternoon defeat downpours out they're actually start dropping rates insists they got a 30%. Today and tomorrow and the from the air drops 20% for Saturday -- -- does that mean we get a little bit hotter without -- He had to go 91 today 92 MRI and 93 on Saturday and -- -- it does start to heat up you know less rain or sunshine Mort -- And make sense then that a quiet tropics it looks like to see no more yesterday morning at last advisory on -- a -- keep an eye on the remnant wave as we always do it doesn't look like it's gonna regenerate -- -- -- dry air out here in the Atlantic right now which is a good thing dry air that keeps those storms from developing that. It doesn't look like anything's gonna be able to form of the next couple of days to. Dry air in West Virginia as well after that they. They moved out and they get some thunder showers last -- I yellow cars where the saints -- generated -- -- I think looking at temperatures for for -- -- the week and it for practice. -- off the fifteenth. Highs in the numbers -- -- to low eighties. What world is that -- -- they -- the practice field will be in the sixty. At 8:50 AM they're acted you know what am hoping don't get too used to it. -- -- I I hope they know that that that although they played Nadal a lot so -- yet the idea that battle that degrees and then that maybe that clinic in this important. For the down there you guys on the same conditions and temperatures in the seventies most is sixties and seventies when they're practicing in the morning. Maybe peeking into the eighties in the afternoon. Rain coming on Sunday looks like Fridays -- to be played Sunday they -- thunderstorms Friday a folksy forecast for here in New Orleans and but the Greenbrier in West Virginia and the saints report to training camp officially. Today I should have put that woman by the way. We -- and I got it what is wrong reaction to -- her right in the people file which he set up the date -- to cart -- -- -- that cool at all. Something also that's sheriff. And I don't often put police officers and -- people while I ask if you may be one belongs. A New Hampshire woman. Who called the police. After stopping in -- highway median. Is now facing. A ticket. And has to pay a fine of 44 dollars assuming plus court costs -- -- Bebo of new fields New Hampshire says that a mama duck and her -- wings were crossing route one -- line. And there was some decent heavy traffic. So she didn't want the dock in the -- going to get hit my car ride so she pulled into the media. Some may call the neutral ground here up there they call the median for here. And she went out and she tried to protect the -- in her doc unfortunately the mama duck. Several the Docklands were hit by a car but she was able to get a couple of them to safety. And get them to a wildlife rescue. The police to arrive -- call that you can't do that you can't stop in the -- and gave Brett Pickett. Are stopping in the media and to save the duck and her -- Didn't do a story about this not long ago that someone who stops to you it was either at all was in the street or something and somebody we've added and presidency connection event at thrown out -- -- -- people stopping travel out that the cat wasn't this year I think it was Australia but I may have that wrong but I think she's eighteen trial because. Someone ran into the back of her car and killed people in my mind that you can't so bad that makes me think it may be the police offers officer was kind of thinking back to that same. Safety comes first you know for drivers are human beings before -- Mean animal lover that I am I can say that I would do the same thing and Lisa I Vietnam and active they help -- don't stop in the middle of the road clearly -- not blocked traffic for a duckling writes that she pulled into the media and they said comedians for emergency vehicles home. This is this kind of remember to complete that -- that this may be an emergency Sabine. Animals that -- do you think he deserves the ticket and I think me and maybe maybe just circumstances that caught caught the officer on day when he was in real stickler you know. Now. I'm a little early but other federal and it is not likely the law you know I guess you could argue like whether we needed. Maybe happening at the end of the law are some that I -- in the line a -- officer was just following. The law I don't know if there is their area for great area like that kind of. Some discretion of course Matt I well it to Texas -- 8787 he will let the listeners decide should this -- have gotten a ticket for stopping in the median have to save duckling. All right we'll see what they think by the west of Texas that Gloria correct but it was in Canada the girl's father died at motorcycle. Okay added as aptly tonight you got -- something that -- Australia Canada went. Right I do it's not the -- that it cranky because she's standing try and she's facing you know some pretty serious starches overall if you cause the death that two people right.

Are we expecting every member of the saints team to report today no contract disputes no hold outs no serious injuries. Yeah everyone. Will be in attendance expected to be a 100% participation. And that's another reason that hopes are so high because. The saints have taken care of business off the field getting to this point and it'll be really interesting to see if -- birdies ready to take the field. Tomorrow because -- he's recovering from back surgery. That's the only big question I have right now but we said earlier when they release of those players on the physically unable to perform list.
