Other than some higher serve maybe some rip currents along the eastern shores of Florida maybe some of the southeast that. At this point it -- -- -- offshore from the East Coast and takes it out into the open waters when it's kind of sits -- at that worry you mean yeah you know it would worry me more if that we're not you know almost due east of us -- you know it's it's already there in the Bahamas -- it would have to do some pretty crazy stuff senate. -- loop around and come to the golf and no models are showing that so I it doesn't worry me other than I just worry for the spokesman -- ominous.

As well with my special thanks in the executive producer and agreed bath night. -- -- Help you with the got a distress as a good producer Dan and me noted that on the dance floor is that called them. 911. Up out there -- -- on how did Drew Brees looked on Saturday ambled through play this Thursday Steve Geller is in with the answers and a look at sports this morning. Good morning and happy Monday everybody Drew Brees was sharp tossing two touchdowns in the State's 23 to seventeen pre season went over the colts on Saturday. Despite being the quarterback's first game back since dealing with an oblique strain. Quote coach Sean Payton was asked -- the Pro Bowl signal caller might see some action on Thursday in the final game of exhibition play. Or be Smart especially with short week I think the key is just getting the reps stern of course the week to practice and he's experienced enough to understand the difference between practice and in game speed. Yet to meet. Be Smart translate to not a chance has -- admits he still that a 100% yet and could use the rest just for a time back and -- support you know I mean still just. This is that -- -- area. A few other roughed up signal callers in the NFL the Panthers cam -- been ruled out the Carolinas. Pre season finale. And he'll sit with a hairline fracture to his ribs head coach Ron Rivera remains confident though that Newton will be ready for week one against Tampa. Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is done for the season after re tearing his left ACL and Saturdays pre season contest against the browns. Saint Louis will now move forward with a veteran short hill as the signal caller. White tiger football opens the season just five more days against Wisconsin let's check you with a big sheet for the latest on this. Up to 45 match up the LSU tiger defense has two of the best it's pass rushers in the SEC returning Jeremiah -- go. And did -- content how to -- one key for him this season is getting off to a much fastest but then that of what he needed 2013. Less Julia. Slow start because home ice there's two out. No this season that's my playbook and I started studying more of us are good and -- it -- to me this season this can continue to improve and to build off last. It's a -- does and the batches sent it aged now right here on WW. Ballot via WW real sport. And south -- -- -- South Korea beat Chicago eight to four to win the Little League World Series championship. Today -- the second -- show live from the silver slipper casino. What are your top takeaways after three pre season games for the saints I'm Steve Geller and that is your early morning look at sports. Clearly want a little Chicago might still wind but it down they were really up the gates something that they haven't lost since god knows the team Korea's. Yeah Chicago's pitching didn't really. Quite live up to what South Korea had -- but the kids had a great run. Right it was in the wonderful in Chicago needs it because they have so much you know crime there's this is a good rallying for them sent. Very very good OK so let's talk LSU tiger so what are the expectations for this season I think. 810 win season is always expected with LSU just because less miles has been so successful. With the program since coming there and I had the tigers winning ten this year and I I know people usually. In tiger fans consider and national championship. Or nothing. And I think this year with all of the youth on this team on the offensive and defense this side of the football. Ten -- a pretty darn good accomplishment expression with two quarterback situation now remains unknown mum we have some returning. Running backs from last season -- leading rusher and Jeremy hill is gone too. 21000 yard receivers are gone from this team so the offense is definitely going to be struggling this year I do think the defense. The defensive side of the ball will be better for the tigers didn't last year because there are a lot of sloppy play some missed tackling in the tigers didn't quite live up to their defensive billing of pats but I know defensive quoted -- shave his. Will be whipping this team into shape for this game. And Wisconsin the federal quarterback situation of their own that's that's been a big question but I have a strong running game and also so. Tough defensive front as well so I think it's going to be a great matchup I do like Alicia to win the big game opening game of the year to. And quickly the fact that we had not settled the QB question is that good or bad are good strategy on the -- part are we shipment we should -- all right well teams of war. In the pads dealing with two quarterback systems I know I'm not a fan of bid but. Let's miles has basically said that we're gonna see both quarterbacks in this game between Brandon Harrison Anthony Jennings. I guess you have to get kind of a feel of who's going to be the leader who's gonna be that starting guy. And he can really only get that in the game situation not so much from practices so I kind of see where he's coming from -- but I think. Some point during the year he's gonna have to have. One starting quarterback and go with them. OK very good banks beat -- remember. National banana split -- -- I'll be yet month before prep or maybe after practice yet deleted after the practice -- excellent Steve. Coming up we'll have another check of our forecast with Laura black -- and I'm getting them techs that say I don't have to drive to Houston. To get the -- -- -- talking about that. It's not that far away I'll tell you what are taxes are saying I can find collect these all coming up in just a moment. Apparently it can also go to Crescent City to get some blotches and also the district don't it's -- magazine street all right thank you guys. I'm -- -- is up next have a great -- about if.
