Getting drunk and -- guess the lack of a better explanation. They see him do enjoyable see a bit since every -- is sold to a season ticket holder only makes sense just asked them what they think. In the superdome and I guess will -- in doubt. One the -- their plan in the dome. Again when and if -- is there are like noticed last year they would play it after a touchdown and then sometimes -- play different soul and yet when it played definitely -- reaction and no matter what the difference -- -- it was a -- kind of marriage that which -- kind of my reaction of the third pre season game tomorrow things -- good morning everyone happy Friday.

We have got to see that at all -- excited about that part definitely defensive stars. Going to be plan for the saints them maybe at least in that first half. That should be an exciting game and maybe -- to make them turn overs and get some takeaways and has an excitement takeaways have been thinking you know yesterday. Corey white who complain in the nickel in the secondary. Came away with another turn over he's been a real ball all this this training camp I've been appraised impressed with his hands this. That I haven't really seen him make too many plays like that before if only he could now just. You know stay on the receivers during actual game.

They were talking about this Islamic -- Some people are calling it crisis. I know I'm I'm tired of this debate and it is also called Beisel -- the president calls -- Beisel yet you know when I first heard him say that he has today. I thought he said something else. It sounds like another war I they were not supposed to say on the radio you're right it does those guys' souls. You know I mean that's that's what it's out of life. And I think maybe that's why the administration. May be choosing to call Beisel instead of crisis because I -- both names are accurate. But if you can sound like you're called on an ice all out then maybe it sounds better or more derogatory word -- I'm not sure because and then most of our listeners will hear crisis. All week either from our news -- CBS and working whether it's horror WW LTV and then the president comes Gaza sisal. And Chicago on why. Yeah it really did make me go -- -- out why he did it did it work that's supposed to say. And always angry at this group. Man terrorist state -- trying to destroy him his pledged to plant a black flag on the White House.

Oregon went to undergo. So not I'm gonna -- over the -- -- -- I thank you David for your prediction also congratulations on being a man. Knife in him answer his arrest on 85% of us men get fully set aside in the bedroom and not nice we complete the entire activity. Straight women are at the bottom the last only 63%. Of straight women say that they. Finish in the -- I'm completely satisfied that. And you get a much better chance again but maybe demand should be blamed then. Four straight women not being sent me it is somethings to blame brown edited and don't give them out so -- and do batter thank you David. Pataki and twenty minutes more for it Chris Miller joins us on the lasted all -- -- talk -- -- -- -- races. We. Really really yes we are here we have arrived Friday is upon us and we shall celebrate costly. So whatever you get -- the pinpoint forecast senators celebrate Friday do it now looking. I don't know what it is but do it -- -- opera guys are about tell. -- man you keep down is going to be the hottest weather we've seen yet this summer -- right time for the weekend. Now here and he had ninety Ford today 95 tomorrow and Sunday so yep we haven't had Temps like this too often this year yet and -- -- them before just not that -- this summer. So you know. If -- used to it had to be prepared to maybe take them more breaks than you're used to get the AC when you can plan you cool fluids this weekend that sort of thing. We're gonna get their dangers around with a heat index above one -- You know I don't know if they're an issue any kind -- heat advisories but the heat index is definitely going to be up there are -- -- we'll have to kind of watch for that over the next couple days. All right that's today that's tomorrow that's Sunday that's actually down in the next week now. Yet at least about the early part of next week. It looks like the high with that's bringing that heat does start to breakdown kind of midweek -- -- better rain chances may arrive by Tuesday Wednesday and others. And even -- chances are low now with that being so darn hot if you get a storm it can be heavy dump rain on yeah like yesterday man no -- Ion battery yesterday afternoon with incredible like -- that at his house that violence to warm -- -- the worst he's a member yet lightning just would not stop. Half -- cracking that great Yankee. It's it's it's like gasoline to a fire you know it just adds all that extra instability can get these violent summertime storms set. Gave another not widespread where they developed from this heat they are very strong aren't lightning. Not very strong is our tropical wave out in the Atlantic getting closer to the Caribbean. But he's got a better chance of development. He had -- that you -- taxpayers that it's funny net sometimes they pulled the trigger on the on on the systems upgrade at other times -- -- kind of let them linger. At this point it's still a tropical wave the hurricane hunters went out yesterday did not find a close looser and low pressure area on the surface that they -- that still -- they'll go out again today -- anything it's changed but really the forecast models continue to show kind of a curving. Up toward the north maybe through the Bahamas and then back over to Bermuda and it looks like you're sensing a little bit of a weakness there. Now again I say this with a grain of salt because that hasn't developed yet until we always say the models. You know Qaeda had done how to let it go on right when it's not developed yet that at least the consensus now is that it would state and east at the US. Even east of Florida although I would I would be watching it's closely -- southern Florida. Well you're not here in Louisiana so angry -- big sigh of relief and hope that all models the cracks in it stays away from most Landon. Maybe doesn't even develop at all after this but I -- about what. -- people. Albuquerque, New Mexico is where we get this one for the what is wrong with people file. A police say a man not only stolen electric shopping cart from Wal-Mart. You know as little one you don't like this one is critical areas -- little -- in the bucket on the the -- -- -- -- always ask me they can ride around the store I was at film now well eighteen year old Michael Johnson according to caps could not resist the effort -- around.
