It's right here in this bags -- -- about that and someone comes to visit from Seattle reign all brought the Seattle with you're gonna sand. People say it all the time that. It's it's just -- counts to speak as you can't write a letter which -- That's that I don't wish Steve Geller in the saints can have brought the weather back from West Virginia with them the year -- by it. I don't knows that's possible and not much you would do it the war. It was in -- fit the whether he described coming home in the over just like I thought he woods described under the seat for my hitting walls. And that's exactly anytime I've been out of -- word was nice and cool and -- hitting a wall a wall of heat. But he got quiet all you want because at least we don't have a hurricane to deal and -- You know it's been very quiet hurricane season but you know was also quiet Thursday hurricane season 45 years ago yes advisors. And then Camille came along. And it was you know this late in the season and is only the third named storm of the season. That year won a monster Camille -- No real not real and do a number on change the face of much of Mississippi yeah -- forever. And in this day -- some survivors of Camille values stories and remember what happens. And it only takes one as the chance indeed. We still have quite a ways to go in this hurricane season which -- be aware that. Just because we haven't had anything yet that means we're not -- We're Trojan along just have a plan in place and be ready Johnston. We'll read along through this Monday thank you do not hear about it first it is going to be well. These -- Steve -- it was sports as the saints. And now practicing in -- to wrap up training camp. We'll talk to him about that coming up after this thing get your forecast in your workweek gets you know I had everyone grab hands lock arms. We're gonna make it through Monday together. 519 thank you so much for starting your Monday here on the early edition of -- W golfers it is time Dave -- coming up a lot of talk more about the fact that the number stay at home dad. Has doubled since 1989. Allen -- guys out there. Could you be a stay at home dad did you stay home and raise the kids while your wife works and women. Did you do that would you be -- right being in the long gone out of the house and make in the money and he -- stays home and raises the kids -- cubicle with that tax mediate 77 in your forecast to. They may be the best rain chance we see all week and it's just it 30% this Saatchi and eve being forced some scattered thunderstorms -- still at 92 today. But climbing up to 93. On Tuesday and Wednesday and as things heat up. We start to see those rain chances dry out a little but just 20% each afternoon through midweek. From the pinpoint forecast center and he wrote to us Clark knocked out. 79 degrees partly cloudy at the airport in -- relative humidity is 90%. Slide out clear and 75. Even mug here on -- our show are. In 93% relative humidity with no breeze to speak of at all. We'll speak of another reason. -- memories he played this week in practice and Willie -- in this. Third and most important pre season game opens today tells what's going on -- saints camp in battery pack. From the mountains the mountain man himself. That he and apple yeah we climbed down we made it fine if that's all good -- achieved up all cleaned up now. -- get out there with sports night and Monday morning -- -- welcome -- David good morning everyone the saints took the practice -- the -- for the first time this training camp and quarterback Drew -- returned to being a full go after missing some time due to an oblique strain. So how did it feel to be back. Odds what has happened. Those great great to be in front of the offense again could you got -- -- -- home so I can use these conditions you tell us again. Brees added that his plan is to play Saturday in pre season game number three against the colts. Also tight end Jimmy Graham was asked about his goal -- dogs that ignited a heated confrontation on the sidelines between human head coach -- pay him this past Friday. How would never do anything to her decision her to a season you know there's. Obviously the game is bigger than any individual or players and and I'm totally against it until I really care about them we want to. -- the falcons revamped offensive line took a major setback when -- left tackle Sam Baker was ruled out for the year after injuring his right knee in a pre season game. First round pick -- Matthews could move from right to left tackle to replace baker. But the injury is a major setback to Hadley and his efforts to bolster an ally and that was already the league's worst a year ago. The defending national champion Florida State Seminoles are ranked number one in pre season AP top 25 poll. Number -- Alabama followed by or in Oklahoma and Ohio State. The LSU tigers covenant thirteen because it's less miles says quarterback Anthony Jennings -- Brandon Harris are improving. I'd like how they're competing there -- competing as a team awards speech guys who for the other and it's. I admire how hill. And pole sitter Jeff Gordon won the Michigan 400 Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway. Gordon finished in front of Kevin Harvick and Joel god offers third win of the year and his first at Michigan since 2001. Today at four it's the second gesture alive from the silver slipper casino what are your top takeaways after two pre season games for the saints. Look good and who's on the bubble. I'm Steve Geller and -- that your early morning look at sports. -- point three -- on Ron -- with the on Monday morning saints practice at 11 AM today in front of the fans out at the practice field in -- correct you have a -- times a little bit -- was kinda curious about that I -- would be. Warmer at that time a little more heat yes it well the coolest part of today is now he's at the sun comes up it's -- getting warmer. And we'll continually get warmer until about 4:5 o'clock this afternoon when we get the hottest day yet you think. Atlantic mated these guys sleep. Difficult time did. To sleep then at least before the or maybe it's part of Sean -- saying hey we need to get these penalties under control and maybe disciplining them in the heat will be. You know punishment -- -- I don't know speaking of penalties I find it interesting you talk to -- Ingraham yesterday right. And he said quote I wouldn't you never do anything to hurt this team. In the regular season yeah so he dunks after scoring in the pre season which is now a fifteen yard unsportsmanlike. Conduct penalty rate which gets tacked -- the following kick off after the touchdown. So we did it in the pre season game. But he said he never do anything to hurt this team in the regular season which sounds to me like the dark days are over for Jimmy Graham. He's getting it out of the system now we're back with the it on the sixteen games the -- Now and I think that especially after the though last game against the titans there when the -- this saints racked up those 22 penalties. And Sean Payton was visibly upset with with -- on the sidelines again and to a bit of -- shouting match the first time. I get a kind of cute in front of the home fans riles up the superdome a little the second time probably a little bit over the top considering the team was struggling. With penalties to begin with so I do believe that will be the last time we see Jimmy -- even in the pre season. Thanks -- NASA now but hey you went so far and we he had taking away Jimmy -- dogs. I get it if he had not that up right off of level that it should be a penalty you have but. Jimmy can do without even touching the operative he wants him I don't hang on I'm. The regulate the NBA in the NBA you can donkeys can't grab onto -- and and different no reason. It just because Atlantic shoddy goal post rooted for everybody because there is happening get off kilter at that. Point it out Atlanta absolutely.

Lighten affidavit does please told them that she wanted it to your boyfriend who was arrested hours earlier -- that she wanted to go to jail. So they didn't immediately -- -- by a fire boyfriend or say whether or not she did get to see him but it seems to meet pretty obvious on its base this is a bad plan. Yes I think we didn't think it only -- if she can't she go visit like you know. Just as as someone who has them in jail -- should not have visitors right there and certainly the end. When he had just been arrested. Now he was still being booked and processed and all that and -- -- the next day to get to the and we don't know. If they actually crossed at any point and that she.

What -- texts -- at -- 78 Celanese as I could never be a stay at home dad that he was way too much work for me. At least eight acknowledging. That it's harder to raise the kids and as it is to go and make the money. Steve -- Your work in this part of always -- well. Just -- -- this budgetary train cameras and the -- again back to work this morning in battery with all your Monday mornings or Tuesday. -- -- Good morning everyone and happy Monday -- training camp is back in Metairie and quarterback Drew Brees fully participated in practice. For the first time since straining his oblique muscle two weeks ago. Brees said it was good to be home in that he plans on playing. Saturday gets Indianapolis in pre season game number three fragile person or pre season game literally you know this is really just reversal for the source told us is when the season because very. Now Jimmy Graham's wouldn't say that he regretted dunking over the goal post Friday night which drew two penalty flags. And led to a shouting match between him and coach -- on the sidelines. But he did say that he would never do anything to hurt the team in the regular season. I just love the game you know a lot of passion for the game an embargo on Sunday it was fun for me. You know that's. This is fun you know my foot a little kid out there and and -- I'm -- budget. The Atlanta Falcons revamped offensive line took a major setback when left tackle Sam Baker was ruled out for the year after injuring his right knee in a pre season game. The falcons announced that the injury plagued baker sustained a torn patella tendon in a 32 to seven loss to Houston Texans. Reigning Heisman Trophy winner -- -- Winston and defending national champion Florida State our number one in the AP pre season college football poll. Second -- is Alabama thirties or game Oklahoma comes in at number four in Ohio State rounds out the top five. LSU football comes in ranked number thirteenth coach less miles on some players on defense who highlighted the tigers' first scrimmage over the weekend. In the -- nine tackles and you know four. Losses forced -- -- today. To backers that world really really good for both welter and can go -- from both guys played -- -- take -- on football. And LeBron James recruiting machine has scored again. Veteran free agent forward Shawn Marion has agreed to a one year league minimum contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers. To 36 year old is a four time all star. And gives the cavs another veteran with post season experience the compliment. King James therefore it's the second -- show live from the silver slipper casino what are your top takeaways after two praising the pre season games for the saints. And who looked good and who looks to be on the bubble I'm Steve Geller with your early morning look at sports like the -- to. They've gone Steve Geller with you on your radio here excess of the Drew Brees is back actually throwing the football full practice get ready ago. And will play in Saturday's third all important pre season. Definitely a great sign and a big deal for every one just because of -- always concerned when your star quarterback is missing time. You would never sat out any pre season games or practices like this before and training camp. So was something a bit new but. You know seeing him. Throwing and then when he was doing the ice bucket challenge in doing a slip and slide along -- on the ground. I knew things were going to be just fine and he looked good yesterday it. Saints back to practice at 11 o'clock this morning guys and with the where's the schedule we've got it on our website at WW well. It come on out to your poison black and gold gets a lot of grafts went with them and -- got him. Last -- says that in the scrimmage they played some step up in the air intake young football yes I -- another for the kind of very descriptive step up in there and take you on football. The eight people out and it shows that -- he comes in in the pre season poll number thirteen in the nation. It was they were in the coaches poll tonight do load is right what do you think goldilocks I. Actually think it's pretty hard for the tigers are I think they lost a lot on offense with you know -- met burger. They're leading rusher and Jeremy hill to top wide receivers and kind of surprised that they're actually ranked this high I don't have a problem being number thirteen at all I think it's a decent ranking that are giving him. Really the benefit of the doubt.
