Oh. It's game day and it's a pre season I'm now but it's still it's it's game. You know one way to look at this game and a lot of people don't really understand how serious this is. The first game of the pre season. Is a gateway game. This is the gain only do this season. There are young people who'll start watching this game tonight and then get hooked. And don't watch every game this season. Sometimes to collecting their shores sometimes neglecting their homework sometimes neglecting their personal hygiene. It's the gateway game. Taylor it's the beginning of the season and that is exciting and we have a lot of excitement here Deborah every wrote because of the changes that have taken place. The new voice of the saints his former saints offensive lineman Zach Strief. And I'm so looking forward to him doing a play by play he will be in the Booth with former saints running back color analyst Deuce McAllister. This is this just gonna really I think may be set a new precedent for on the creativity in the in the Booth. And to die in Newman our program director Chris Wright and our. Market manager they were responsible for this on this innovative move and I think it's going to be great into doping too harsh on on sack. You know that the things that Zach doesn't know he will learn the things that Zach knows it can't be talked to somebody. So I think he's going to be excellent in this position and I also love the fact that with this high profile position of being the voice of the saints the play by play announcer. Zach Strief is gonna bring more attention to the offensive lineman. Because you're usually it's the guys who has the you know de de de fund the climbers positions like quarterback or wide receiver or running back they're usually the ones that did do the collar stuff. But here's an offensive lineman who's gonna do. And I think it's gonna be awesome and he's just he's such a great guy that I have I wish him the best. I'm also we've got testy courted since Dunlop for fans first take a starts at 2 o'clock so we only have a show for an hour. I mean I'm not even going to be on your long enough to get in trouble today. She's just gonna disappoint. On so the pregame starts at 2 o'clock kick off is at a 6 o'clock and then after the offense first take show it's on the new pregame show the the about like talent to get off Wyss of Bobby a beer and this time Kristian garic is going to be part of their Christian Garrick also will be with Bobby a beer for the point after. Until midnight tonight right after the game so you'll they'll be a lot to talk about a lot of new stuff going on. And I I'm I'm very excited I'm not only excited for the approved a play by play team and a in the both. And also excited for the saints and there's a lot of reason to be excited from Metairie win welcome to WW well. It Palin. On that is completely defeat and start even they're creepy and I'm in my mind you it's look at the gateway game. You know where I hope someone mentioned get back in it denture.

There's no more football resume on Monday Night Football. There's no football on Thursday nights in certain emotional on the weekends it's over. And you kind of feel like it's never gonna get here. Well it's here we I mean we made it is starts tonight in Jacksonville. And we got all their coverage right here on their behavioral AM FM and every if you don't dot com. Let me would I can get serious this afternoon at all we're going to be the pregame before the pre game show host begins and I hours look for reasons not to to get too serious so we're not gonna get serious on this afternoon. But I have an update on the lemonade stand robbery in North Carolina. Deputies in them and road North Carolina have arrested a suspect. Who they say rob a nine year old lemonade tender a seventeen box at gunpoint. The incident led to. More than 200 dollars in donations and know what the hundred dollar riding lawn more donated to the to the kid he was he was selling lemonade to buy a new law more. And lows. Offered him this brand new writing on more for a 11100 bucks. Tony Underwood to tie is with the sheriff's office in Monroe. A North Carolina he says they obtain security camera footage and it showed a person that matched the suspect's description. And it was in the proximity to the robbery scene. And so is there are trying to work with C a north Carolina department of juvenile justice to obtain petitions. Charging the juvenile with robbery a dangerous weapons possession and also possession of drug paraphernalia. Traficant Royce is named because he's a juvenile. But I mean I'm glad they cut their kid because you know. I mean my god what is this world come to if somebody's trying to make some extra money selling lemonade. It eliminates stand as some punk comes up with a hoodie and a gun in my have been an air they're gone but it's still a gun the perception was stick I was armed. And robs the poor kid of seventeen blocks. In any way to kiss turned out to be. In better shape now than it was before. I wanna share a story were few. They are I'm gonna tell you it's really sad. It's sad. But it says. So much about animals. This is why we love animals. And again I'm not trying to devious downer but I wanna give credit. To this animal. Maybe you've seen this on the news spreads. And in danger orca. Killer whale. Is still clinging to her dead calf. More than two weeks after her newborn dot. This is a twenty year old whale. She has been seen carrying. Her dead young calf. Off the Olympic Peninsula and in Washington State this is in the Seattle area. The cast died July 24. As of the image of a mother. Clinging to this dead calf has just caused emotions are all around the world. They have now spotted another member of the same part of three and a half year old whale that is emaciated. And they think that this may be on a cast on our little our young killer whale related to the month. And they're concerned that maybe she's not getting the attention. That she deserves so they're trying to find her to potentially get for meditation and to increase our health on benefits. So I just I just put this is why we love animals. This this mother whale is still carrying her dead. Calf around. I again I wanted to share that with you not to bring you down but just to show you why.

Some people believe it targeted Jerry Garcia and they're Grateful Dead date they just kept touring and they they wouldn't stop and so god had a college Jerry home I don't know whether destroy an opportunity to some speculation about to happen anyway today we remember Jerry Garcia. Who died in the state in 1995 here's an update on our blue runner foods pulled if (%expletive) if you have a game day ritual. Do you do those rituals also during pre games. Like tonight's game. 58% say no but 42% say yes. I'm in a surprise does it play its shares leads to pre game. Pre season game so you still gonna do that interest to get a shipping in my going to our web site. To be a bureau dot com here is a text that says so. Scooter who cares of like your image you just got invited to Amanda show us house you win. Collaborative coverage after 3%. Here's it takes anybody if you go commando can address it will be easy to sneak off and take a leak. No look I cannot I cannot support urinating in public because that is against the law but I think dispersant does. Have a point I here's a text that says a scoot you have come full circle from posting skirt mornings early in your career. To running an address. When you will be. When you will be hoping that there will be spur more hoping there will be no score warnings well that's true we are very early in my career I've got to do it's her warnings on. Every morning and or during the morning show and I just wanted to warn people about the wind in the skirts and you know there's a chance of some thunderstorms on on Saturday so. I'm one of the things that I would require in the dress would be addressed it would not be to see through if it does get wet but I am hoping for no. And hoping for no. Storm warnings become what I'm I'm not look I'm going to be honest with a mechanical commando. There's that would be a little bit tacky and I'm I'm not prepared to deal with two young. The possible consequences. Anyway I today is the beginning of their 2018 football season today's game is the gateway gained at least at this season saints play the Jacksonville jags in Jacksonville. And I've I've I'm excited that this is that this is the first game of 2018 and there's so much there's so many reasons to be excited about the saints team. However. I remember a couple of years ago when a century cream prior I met on duty was to maybe just three years ago. There was so much buzz and optimism about the saints. That I thought I don't know you don't maybe it's a little too soon to be taking this way but there was so much optimism. About the saints. Making it to the playoffs and maybe even winning the Super Bowl and not only from saints fans but also from sportswriters around the country. And we had a terrible year and year. I think it was one of the seven in nine seasons. And so you know here we are going into this season. And I'm I'm glad that Drew Brees and Sean Payton's saints themselves I don't think they take it as seriously as some of the fans to. But this pre hype about you know this is the year. You know that I've seen traditionally over the years that the saints the saints win. To pre season games in a row of people certainly irregardless of this year nominees. And the players themselves they don't they don't buy into that immediately. There's a lot of work that goes into this this season and a lot can happen. And you know injuries is something that everybody has to to deal with it so you know part of getting to the playoffs part of getting to the Super Bowl. It's not just talent but part of it is it is lock. And you kind of have to have some luck during the season but right now there is really a lot or reasons to be a very optimistic about the saints seem. With so Drew Brees being where he is in his career older but still just very very Sharpton and everybody just does great things about him. The wide receivers the running backs the offensive line. You know this system this is an area it's not sexy for team to build. Tough offensive line that's not sexy. But that is so crucial to. The other aspects of the game. And I remember a couple of years ago Dallas Cowboys worked to build their offensive line. And it wasn't a sexy thing to do but that's when they started to have some really really good teams really good games. So this is really import we've got a good offensively and then the defense. And you're hearing so many things about the defense in that has been truly one of the weak points. Of that to the states. Last few seasons Sid the defense would just let things go. And and not just not live up to with the performance of the offense so. If you were optimistic there is every reason to be optimistic but also on our pop culture calendar today August tonight's it was on this day in 1981. Marie James pleaded not guilty to charges that he imprisoned and tortured and sexually assaulting a woman in his California house. He said it was simply four point. I'm Scotia hang on if will be back on WL. Our wonder what he means by that pay a lot of case went back to school today and that meant heavier traffic this morning heavier traffic this afternoon on both sides of the of the lakers are going back to school where you know what phrase still. It's still summertime. And I mean I remember when we used to go to school you know closer to Labor Day. I mean it's August the ninth accuser going back to school and then there was a big changes saint Tammany parish because there will be a resource officer. In every school and also a metal health on top professionals to ought to tell the kids. On don't look at this as any kind of I sure fire way to guarantee safety but I. You know I think it's gonna cost four million dollars to do this I so if they can find the money and they can do it. Duel it. But it's not the obviously it's not the ultimate answer here's a Texas says said the Big Easy mafia saints fans club. We'll be watching the game at cougars tonight is slightly off the pre season. So you guys are gonna get all dressed up for the pre season. That's what I did that hooters it's a fun place. Nice scenery. Also when you look outside it's nice scenic here's a Texas says senate this year for the first time my Brothers who will be doing the red fresh run with me. I'm and I get to pick out. The dresses that they were aware in the Ron plus I'm also choosing the outfits they will Wear ear post run party. They will include two twos. And my my Brothers and two of the most. Core. Man I guess all two of the most hardcore Marines. You've ever seen. I have never been so proud in my life. Do you have my Brothers alongside me supporting this cause it really is a good cost. And I may not run because you know I mean I do the treadmill on a regular basis in my apartment building that. You know Saturday afternoon sending to ethic a source of eleven. I'm not crazy about running in the heat not crazy about running a red dress. In the heat. So even if I don't run I'm still gonna register to light because I want to get to the cost. And the red dress Ryan I think last year. Collected a 150000 dollars. For hobby I charities and for nonprofits. In the New Orleans area so it's a worthwhile saying it has become. Huge are starting to study in LA yesterday because what's with this red dress front thing. I said Ben it's huge. I I I have looked suburban streets. And if you look Denver mystery from any kind of high perspective. It's like it's like a red river I mean all you see is red it's just it's it's it's crazy. And I DN but I differ. Warner dress Mitchell this year. Here's a text and if Amanda. If Amanda strikes out to maybe Angela hill has something for you ever goodwill closet. Well yeah maybe so if you're just tuning in I'm I called my friend Amanda Charlotte. And said do you think you have a red dress that would finishes and I think that got a couple watcher Kamal for try a couple. So we're gonna do that time and a girl Amanda after the show which ends are just a few minutes. Try to cover addresses. A tells really weird. But I'm gonna do that and opposite what we're gonna do is videotaped it well on videotape to breed of recorded on the phone. And we're gonna post it and maybe we're gonna give you a chance to decide which stress I should where she made it sound like she's got a few. So I'll I'll model coupled addresses and maybe we can open it up on FaceBook and you can decide. Which stress. I ultimately where. Here is so I text that says is if you have gained a rituals. Dontarrious so our blue runner for stole. If you have gained a rituals. Do you also do this rituals for pre season games. 64% say no 36%. Say yes give us your opinion. WW dot I can't here's a text skewed I don't think they know Rashad issues pre tags as you mentioned no I didn't mention that they I didn't mean to imply that they issue break tags.

Steve when it comes a pre season game new players have rituals during the season do they do they follow those rituals before pre season game.

Kind of ritual or anything in an issue it's maybe sort of do that collagen you can protest something new concern hello if I had any rituals. Percent I think I have a lot of things follow to that key.
