On Americans. Unpatriotic. Because. Burger -- not gonna move its Burger King headquarters it's gonna remain in the United States -- -- it's not going to add the coffee were -- from the Canadian company to its menu in America.

I would have been a practice in the morning. A tackle along it and anticipate this -- the labor is imported via exactly.

Just because honestly I just because. Pulling back and speaking of strong opinions. Man of the people we talked to here in downtown New Orleans about how many kids -- the perfect number. And what genders is the perfect way to do it I mean a lot of thought this through role -- they have. Definite ideas out on how many they want in what order they want them.

I want this case there's an -- in Juneau Alaska. Who walked out of -- jewelry store with a gold nugget worth 5000 now now after. He signed his face on television. In crime stoppers. Ads. He called. The jewelry store. And then hit here you're looking for. That's a quote I hear you're looking for that is true and -- He returned the gold market. The police and prosecutors will decide in a week. Whether or not restaurant. I don't know what you like him and then he got caught and that's why he and it turned himself right when he walked out that you know what. The bad idea walk right back in apparently snapped at his conscience got the best of them as he saw a picture on TV -- whatever and that there and they want me now. I don't know I'm not quite as forgiving about that I -- maybe it. Somebody did it you know it was probably get away with it decided to turn themselves and and and at the right -- like you were the prosecutor may -- this guy's face of them. I might maybe -- -- -- a little extra credit points for you know. Not many right right and had to -- maybe you know work work with whatever I don't know I don't I don't think it is a great everything it. Why think when he should have done was call crime stoppers give them an anonymous tip a but it's anonymous and -- never known it was him. Turn himself and -- gets the reward maybe is that based on. While it is anonymous I don't know I don't know that there are acting as a can't. Wait for meant that it may be that regular. But -- alive and direct from the -- point sport -- -- sports.

Bettering corner Champ Bailey missed a ton of time last year with a foot injury and a lot of this year's training camp but assures us that he'll be ready for the start of the season. It was the same foot but it was a little different thing to do -- was encouraging because I didn't want anything lingering from last year. And I feel good about Wimbledon. Quarterback Drew Brees was back on the practice field yesterday despite just hours earlier his wife gave birth to their fourth child a baby girl. Three says the outpouring of love and congratulations from fans via social media has really been amazing. It goes well beyond just the playing field you know we doing super dollars Sunday which I'd say that is most unique across all professional sports on. I don't know it's really like that any other place. The Denver Broncos have found a replacement for suspended kicker Matt Prater acquired rookie Brandon McManus from the New York Giants for conditional seventh round draft day. In 2015. Brady Prater was banished for the first four games of the season for violating the league's substance abuse policy. We'll fight tiger football takes on Wisconsin in the top 25 matchup in their season opener on Saturday here's the big chief with the latest. LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has a strong resume of -- the great quarterbacks so what does it take to make a successful quarterback in the SEC. His camp camp.

And pelicans all star Anthony Davis scored eighteen points leading the US national team to a 101 to 71 victory over Slovenia in its final exhibition game before the feeble world cup of basketball. The Americans now -- to Spain for the tournament opener Saturday against Finland. Therefore on sports talk live from the new routes a supermarket on stump and West Bank expressway. What are you more anxious about this harvesting season in Atlanta or LSU's opener against Wisconsin I'm Steve Geller with your early morning looks at sports. I which once you marks -- right now.
