I see people doing that here if you're driving quiz time gently elsewhere hopeful day especially in this wonderful weather. You know I haven't talking about rollicking. And -- texted me at 878 David told Steve Geller you know it's 48 degrees in West Virginia off. God would not entitled to go frolic until we came back with -- more sports summit next to me is that what exactly is rollicking and how do you do it. I get that question often now and I'll tell you. It's kind of left up your own discretion. But I looked it up some dictionaries -- online told me that. -- yes please frolic or romp as you see fit play. I've behaved play fully and uninhibited and a -- And a inhibit or can one person tax credits that and it's nice that it's a wonderful 63 in Franklin -- and pay I think all things considered that's rocking -- -- whether you have for the thirtieth of July had another present on not -- the cars that -- roster until. This morning. All and it's horrible I know about it -- quote. Netherlands' day please stay home and just. Something. Wrong with evidence of it. Any accent that matter you know you hear the story at west and you know I did not announce -- write them -- -- -- this of that Oak Ridge, Tennessee our guys. Some employees at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee complains. After they were offered a class to teach them how to reduce their southern accent on you know. Yet in Tennessee you gotta be kidding managers and other call the whole thing off the course had been advertised as a way to make people feel confident in meeting. When one might need to speak with -- more neutral accent. Class was touted as a way to be remembered for what you say and not how you'd say it. And on nights is anything wrong with having a southern accent I don't think so at all it's there's have been. Probably more big deals cut. You know between southern gentlemen with big -- thick accents and you -- Ever medal what about a New Orleans accent justice of the Enron with 71 of the I'd like accents and I like Maine accidents like Minnesota accents. In Austin Jackson now. -- -- Do you think doesn't everyone at some sort of accent now I will admit I was taught in. Journalism school. That if I wanted to be marketable. In Rome in you know for radio stations anywhere in the country I should try to sound like it was from Ohio. And I did I had to have an accent grownup. I grew up in Chicago and there is this Chicago accent here and it's got kind of a polish twine -- yeah I would think -- and you know there's just some. Sounds that are pronounced differently. And down south. There's an accent. You know and so I guess they've they've canceled the class because of the controversy but should they have offered in the first place. And I want it over my listeners text -- at 8787 -- -- -- all the -- might. Is a top problem have a southern -- Yeah come on do the news in the morning. Now -- And well you grew up all over the place yeah. Yeah -- I don't know I'm Heinz 57 he spent -- them -- at that and held by Alabama yes I did that it was real -- over there you have a thin film I am now. Although. You could slide into one pretty easy you know when -- around not a lot it's kind of like when they say we go to Europe. And and hang out in the country for awhile you start picking up -- on the language. Allow the -- to go visit friends and Arkansas every year and by the time we finished at two week stint in Arkansas I was speaking with a -- and there you go and for fun -- as the kiwis to take an accent when I was in school we just speak with that -- all they want to start it's hard to stop you know like to say that's because the British accent and it's it let's -- -- were from New York today. On -- this whole idea of vote vote. I don't know fixing these people. In Tennessee that was not went over -- -- -- exactly guys if they were broken and I believe it up to our listeners to act made it 7870 is anything wrong with having a southern accent. And should you try to get rid of it if you wanna be successful. In meetings as this. Did the course was designed to thank you that we'll talk to about twenty minutes or fortunate Chris Miller joins us from NO PD headquarters twice this week. And several times this month that under arrest and suspend officers. What's going on that hope. I would do it again this meteorologists. Alexander -- in the ten -- forecasts that are Laura make displayed on the dance again just for -- as I want you to start to announce the up right now. You don't have. Been started a little detail that. We've yet and it's Wednesday home. I -- we -- on Wednesday of bad guys. You've got to do it last Wednesday Laura. Hump so hard she knocked her head that right -- ahead. I'm not saying you have to do that if you got at least move around to go to a point where like my closet looking at doing some wrong with. You -- I'm a coma. -- year. Sleek look and black outfit on the day get the hair pulled back here in the perfect outfit to do it on the up. -- -- -- Ireland are telling about right now every day. In a little bit and I get out. Alexander transferred in the pinpoint forecast center people are rocking this morning -- they really are feeling the difference this morning. I felt less humidity here on this after a few degrees cooler little breeze on the North Shore man people at Texas today it's 7870 that there just. Almost -- -- Okay good shape and now again knowing that the lake it's feeling pretty nice in the sixteenth this morning -- It is nice south of the lake were pretty much average for our temperatures but we took a little breeze and it is a little bit less humid out there. Well at eight and July 30 I will take any relief we came -- How much how much of this relief do we. Today we're gonna still be hot kind of like yesterday afternoon I headed out -- long -- tried yesterday and it felt great when I first got out there and then it. The temperatures are right now but overweight is still high. Though that's going to be the favorite story today highs around ninety degrees you make it kinda close upper eighties for a few spots. And that we do have only 10% chance for coastal shower or storm but it does stay less humid today. And it looks now that's gonna kind of stick around a little bit tomorrow to. Bruins zone tomorrow morning we could be doing this a little bit again I think all right but then it's over rent. Kind of -- Friday it'll start to creep back a little bit but actually Friday is looking a bit drier now you've been watching the point 78 forecast. We had kind of higher rain chances even starting on Friday about a 20% right now at twenty to thirty for Justin's body you're isolated stuff on Friday right and into the weekend. The weekend looks a little bit -- Saturday -- with 30% chance for some spotty showers or storms and Sunday looks letter with a scattered rain chance of about 50%. Outcast now they go folks if you got someone do this weekend you better bet it's Saturday than Sunday. To avoid those showers and we are keeping an eye out -- way of the Atlantic on the tropics. And a little area that could develop into something. That's right yet -- may develop to a tropical depression maybe today or tomorrow. But really since yesterday there hasn't been all that much change and it's got a little better organized but some of the thunderstorms weakened a little bit so just still keeping our eye on that. And most of the models show it not getting into the gulf curving up near the East Coast. That's right that's -- -- and it's right looked like -- -- had this way at least in the early. And now losses hopefully I'll keep our -- -- from the that went forecasts that are missed meteorologist known Democrat for Laura took her birthday off yesterday. It also Jim Henderson birthday yes -- knew that -- and it was anniversary of their hockey guys John join the saints radio. Network broadcast -- -- big day yesterday. Do you like to work on your birthday or take your birthday off. I usually end up just working things impact you know do they do. -- cake for you sing happy birthday in the -- right thing now all you can be yourself and -- people give -- cash Norman. It didn't out -- attendance is silent about it Hudson -- you don't like you what does he wouldn't like to celebrate your birthday. -- really don't know yet another day cool I like it play -- get that on go go overboard with him and I him. I'd like to work on my birthday yes yes -- just yet more people on -- happy birthday and a field but that's right where visibility have but then again I think it options for the day with my wife sometimes we go out to want to get them -- the two of us. I'm split I don't know the tough decision the lord chose to take today out so we wish very happy birthday yesterday I didn't on FaceBook. But we couldn't do it -- her.

Thank you Alexander -- Great -- to go frolic -- can't get on out every you know Alexander transferred -- to frolic in the pinpoint forecast and Canada are now we got -- frolic. It other really rocking up in the mountains and ten in Tennessee when it then West Virginia because it's 48 degrees as they wake up there. With the saints have a day off of practice today it was Steve -- to see what's going on things scampering after this and -- every text messages and 87870. Something wrong with having a southern accent should there be courses on how to get rid of it if you wanna be successful in them meeting. Remind you all. One person text me Tony says Islamic yet nothing wrong with my accent no. As as maybe it's not the south with an accent -- why that a southern accent why did the north that speaks wrong map this out right button. That's as we are the normal he and hundreds there's nothing wrong with a southern accent but is there anything wrong with someone who might want to lose it. As long as it wasn't required class I think it's okay. -- camp of the class after the controversy there and Tennessee. About class to offer people an opportunity to of their accent so they'd be more effective in meetings. Our prisons as I grew -- in Mississippi moved to California after college -- the accent as long as possible. It was always meant for picking up bodies. They loved consultant gentlemen and other says there's nothing wrong with -- accent but. They go on to say it in in the text messaging rates that mutiny I'm in the medical field and work in the operating room mom from Louisiana who was taught in school to speak with out an accent. So the surgeons would not have a bias against me. More discussion coming up today -- wrong with having a southern taxing it. I should stop that because once you start it's hard to stop Steve Geller. Is up in West Virginia. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Awards saints -- the day off today but not Steve -- will be back for him in ninety seconds with more sports here on WWL live from West Virginia. Dave Conan -- and Steve Geller in West Virginia how cool is it out there this quarter and. It was 41 logo and yet still 48 degrees at their data Ireland's better in this 68 and slide on the seventy sixes in Canada but actually were enjoying this slightly cooler weather here -- not -- like you got -- there. The saints and have one full week in the books now training camp taken the day off today we'll find out later -- hold that pretty tight what kind of fun. The team will go -- today as economic team building exercise but. From a football perspective. After one week what do you see as the most exciting thing about this football team and the thing that concerns him. Definitely the most exciting thing to -- is rookie Brandon cooks because. He seems to provide while moments. On the field when he touches the ball which is exactly why this extracted him. And he missed time because he was finishing up school Oregon State but he really hasn't looked to be behind occur at all. He had a play yesterday on the screen pass where he got the block was patient enough to wait for and just what. Am gone so very impressive from him and to be the biggest concern right now. For the saints would be depth at the offensive line and maybe at a linebacker position. But there's a lot of young guys still fight for that spot so where's -- -- anxious to see what they can provide but those two areas offensive line at linebacker where. I would have it it's not really starters just that the depth behind them in case there's any. Injuries well I know the team must be excited and not have to hit the practice field for morning mark got an afternoon walk through today and you guys are saying it's broadcasting must be pretty excited after -- week. To actually get academy easier day where you don't acted -- on over practiced twice you guys get to a kind of enjoy things up -- West Virginia today have fun with -- -- Oh for that befell them wait for the guys that double trouble to get that with their broadcast agreement do some exploring. -- all right explorer away enjoy yourself -- Steve -- all right Dave -- at the early edition of WWL first. All right so we've been asked again is there anything wrong with having a southern accent I gotta tell him my wife is from central Louisiana. And she gets -- all the time. You're not from around here are you or where you from your accent is so cute. Anyway it's for the next four hours of fun topic Tucker will be here which get pummeled today you look the only -- It is amazing the difference and expenses and I mean even just go to Baton Rouge could go to the North Shore even 25 miles across the causeway indeed it's where you're in middle Tennessee I've lived in Chicago I've lived in Missouri -- in Texas I've lived here in the accidents are all. -- I've lived in Belle chase I've lived in Algiers in the accents are different there as we talk about the saints who retired about grudges and talk about carjacking. And debt and paying bills. All the same time we -- payment and the.
