We're asking people for operating jaguar opinion poll when it comes saints pre season games if you have tickets do you use them begins somebody -- if you get them would date. Would they wanna go and and from a fan's standpoint of it's it's kind of different with pre season cousins. It's -- to get into it played for a for the players especially those trying to make the team does almost playoffs beat them and in. You better believe you know it is important you you -- -- life so to speak at this stage. In this in the second precinct to gain is very important because it's. All of you watching when he's been covering his game and missed it would be received and gain. Facto wanting most of those store sportier personnel. Well what -- quarters. So you know that is second auditions -- -- -- All broadway's. All. -- port service state opens up so -- all of that is being. This second printing game is critical. Because you know that you don't walk in the third precinct in day. Tell me I know a lot of people say you know to -- weeks he's. Crowded around two bit -- -- wage in process. That's why it's in place it would rule. Would you collective bargaining agreement actually fall in line. Oh you -- assessment of them agree it now we they're common in football and -- but some excellent points. And you're not really actually why. Important. That is what it's all out and put -- you first opportunity. To see that thing outlawed in person. All in what I think is going to be very special. Needs of public. I Drew Brees any need to play him tonight is knowledge is letting played the third game first half perhaps our. Are some of the first half until he's really -- and and yanking when he we think about that. It is but Drew Brees I mean you know he's not. Well that night sort of beacon displayed in the third received again you know this is all of this could -- opportunity a large group. Ought to solidified its spot as the number two guy.

He pre season because sometimes you know that policy I would presume how player reacts sanders' situation which could be. More important to them than actually winning games so it got one win under your belt -- -- off the snide now does that. Make it easier for him to. To worry less about because I don't think you would go winless during pre season neither. Make it easier formed and evaluate talent now they get it first win or only when of the pre season every. I think one of the things you wanna look at his situation. Is also body reacts. All in and being put this situation mentally Kennedy. Transport what you taught in the practice into getting. Because you can more mental breakdown and physical breakdowns. In pre season. The other thing about it -- -- -- the -- -- -- Creighton has Russell that well all week long it is clear this special teams. And when you look at this football -- a couple holes -- -- In the big question marks. It is play on special teams and it -- fighting for roster spot.

Eyes -- on anyone to feel like 95 down hundred tomorrow 30% chance for showers typical summertime highs around 92 the feeling 9500. And a -- a chance for showers goes up to 40% on Sunday but I think. Sometimes it is changed numbers it would seems different right now it's 74 a good night to be inside. The -- much in the saints play the titans but. Before you get inside you might have to go through some you will have to go through. Semis some additional and different security precautions and for that we go to -- Zeller. We're joined by Ricky communications manager press and -- long's morning -- I'm doing well thank you and I showed that it be excited about the saints coming home tonight. We are excited mental preparation denial I wanna make sure you understand that they're not. But while there -- additional -- not anything different than last year the security measures there's there's no different than what what all patrons and fans. People come to the game that superdome and and champion -- -- -- -- -- different security measures at the same want that well put plates last year we just want to make sure by members. So for those that might be in and also you might have some people on -- for -- for the first time this year that didn't go what what exactly. And it might be new to them what what what did they have to look for allow time for and anticipate. While others the the first thing is that they allow time it is a good way to put it but just actually become a little early. Distribute so -- time and we -- to strategic or getting people through. As quickly as we can. -- house policy it is. That need to pack a clear back -- it would be. Twelve inches by twelve mentions like 62 so the sides more of those large zip lock. Actual clear plastic back into -- custom ones but they're a good. Clears a -- it's and then along with that could also carry one. Clutch. And that would be about the size of your hand -- just like six inches and let things like gay. Backpack.

And you net whenever. So lie embodies patted down metal detectors bullet wouldn't need to know. Just want to be there every gate and the other thing. The other thing to remember is for the entrance a champion -- ashamed and so rules are in place so for the big pregame party is champion square changed. Which is terrific that you just need to remember that the same. Rules that. But it takes to go into the game going to champions square as well and others that. That's that's such and such an important people are chipped and scores. If you -- of their their people checking you is you. As you walk in the if you if he had her from -- pointer street people are checking before you go to champions square. -- -- And and walking down mr. Campbell south street soared.

Before seven. Tunneling -- traffic and that would go to Michael welcome. Tommy Tucker talking about our whole Lotta things morning here's a picture of public's employee tying an elderly man issue that. That's gone viral and -- it brings up a conversation about a random act of kindness says you've. Ever received or done is it better to -- to receive not in terms of moral judgment will what makes you feel better when somebody does something for you. Or when you do something for somebody and I think he can also have a conversation. About customer service here. Because I was at a place the other day and I don't name any names but their difference and silent and so on means it will be with you. So they filed until they were ready to stop opening came over and help me about five minutes later and as a result I'm ready. To move. Whatever it is I do there to -- not to identify -- kinda place that is to somewhere else. And it would be big change so local. And I really think I'm gonna do that and I think I should have done along time ago. But if you ever had service it was so war and I don't think we need to mention any names but. What was it that -- does someplace else do you think customer service is what it used to be. And it. I guess the other side of it is -- he ever had exemplary services and and employee gone above and beyond the call of duty to do something like tie your -- Or would you want that because again again again as she can look at it is. You walk into a supermarket all of a sudden somebody's bending down and tying your issue. And you could say that is so nice have you or your response to be without Kelly Dylan -- -- get away from me. Will come back -- talk about the Federal Reserve they say the typical American household can't raise 400 dollars in cash. So if you need a washing machine if something goes out and you need. To get something repaired. Or any other emergency 400 dollars. The Federal Reserve says the typical American household. Couldn't come up with 400 dollar bills 400 dollars in cash. Without borrowing it from somebody. Prized possessions. And what did speak to snapshots would snapshot does that give of the economy. Is it proof that people aren't making enough. Or is it proved that people just can't control themselves and are spending too much. Andy do they pay for cable maybe that they can't afford cellphones that they can afford. And they are living paycheck to paycheck and speaking of that today for a lot of people payday if today was the last paycheck you received. If after you get you pay envelope direct deposit whatever they say elect. Fred sorry -- get the let you go how long could you make it will be back on -- -- -- well.
