And is it well don't have to put some clothes on hello will ultimately drive and it is. One lesson will go through the drive through. Is it what are you talking the most watched this. And he is jaw almost dropped in the putt that you have drive through. Alcohol sincere and the fact that you wouldn't believe that you could go almost any supermarket while alcohol you want. Well I think in my. Walled wiping out Smart football country but I part of my in the war on over in public view and promote that now right away and many people out there and do whatever you don't know. We wondered there are people from the war on one. I thought about that. Like that and then. I don't realize that not everybody out there are different we are different but we got that will be. Enjoyable. And routed out where write ago that it a lot of it is just not say it's not there. It's like the mom who was watching the parade going by what the soldiers. And everybody was in step of one dollar and the mom so to see that that one my son is the only one who's in stuff and and that's the way we think sometime but. You're right it will we are different New Orleans is a very unique city. And not I would not wanna live anyplace else. Well they'll do it well all outward mention that that the bank you know they've great portrait baited my daughter in the Autry is now like the only guy like. Everybody. Out and yeah I do and Craig. Trying to start a second line nobody followed that are. I know I'm goggle it boggles your time here are more. All right Patrick I appreciate your Arlene and some tapping new got our rights doc and Marty we're going to come right back Drew Brees of the saints have to make a statement against the falcons. If the saints make that statement. And were Nate Nate want those Eitan aides say to you coming right back after the news on WW. John WWL on the riverfront for a no New Year's Eve the fun starts at 9 PM tomorrow night with live music from the Allstate Sugar Bowl ban a stage watcher of the floor delete comes down 2016 and welcomes in the new year. All part of Dick Clark's New York rock and able to land Seacrest as their first ever of central time zone. Countdown now and in Boise. And Boise Idaho. The kettle potato drop. They are a problem for their potatoes and each year a mess of potato is lowered at the Idaho State Capitol. A best while working text message or best fireworks watching it Lotte volcano eruption and my old country. Nicaragua in 1970. I was seven years old. Drew Brees says that the saints have got to make a statement against the falcons now open make that statement. They beat the falcons are eight and eight what kind of statement does that make deals go to Scotland little Charles Scott. What what 88 mean to you what kind of statement on the saints making. This statement is it weird extremely average very pedestrian quite deal. And I think. The fact that we have to fight. Could be average really he would be very telling. I think the solution of the problem. It is the pelican sign in new president of basketball operations and there's no way want to convince me that you indeed. Six well in GM and expects fold. President of basketball operations are in the French art but we'll have argument that stretched out. That. If she can focus more on one. And what we have one successful aren't done with you look at both franchises that both of them are thirty. And I am last the last tally I would. Of the bank payroll those players are on the team at bat on the I don't think it giraffe that chilling out. But to be able on dime for a third or since the ground. It's free agency is. Well. I will agree with we've made some bad choices in pre it's about heard Christian and Bobby. Indeed talk about the dual role of Mickey will most and they all say to amend it. He's not involved in the day today operations the pelicans and it has no effect on on the signs of world. And then that's the only thing I can Goebel. But I I appreciate you toning and thank you very much let's go to Marty Marty what what statement has eight -- make you. Yeah. Well first well sect or disagree with that gentleman as well as. You take a look at Miami and the dolphins went two years of nothing while their basketball team to repeat it or they. But it wasn't that wasn't owned and operated mostly in person wasn't. That that's the main east the general manager. Is the same for both of the or whatever his title as executive vice president. Out I guess that I applaud Wal-Mart. If they ought to take justice. I think this statement was made when they twice couldn't get to foreign four or other arm and a shot that tied up there. Too many. Children are not a Albertine. Even though occasionally it could be any about. What but when it could do that to put them in the just like play our game. Or equal rather Beck that. And Arctic access so open about that particular banks now are as. The statement. I honestly because and anybody. Who Atlanta Falcons probably you know. Major to be in the game but the out they wanna make a statement. Ought to calm like it is the skull. And here and so. And I think the falcons are so hot. And they want this game so bad for us to go into. In their home and beat them I think that would make a statement. Back at what point did that with a question that it's gonna be far different at all it would appoint a watching run. Marty I appreciate opponent we will take. Up a break and before the break according. Disputes pop culture calendar something very important happened in 1968. On this date. Frank shall adopt recorded the song right here. Oh and if you don't know if you world. A rock star are rock star fan in the in the fifties. Remember Paul anchor the gun at what. Reported puppy below that and I don't know what to mothers on. He wrote the song for Frank Sinatra all right coming right back on WW well. Drew Brees says. The saints need to make a statement. Against the falcons this coming up Sunday for what kind of statement does and Eitan a season make to you won't go to a Marion Carrollton Mary how are you today. And but it we would be a statement that that my statement. What what what weight what statement that they use. Prime avalanche all all the saints okay isn't made I. My statement that same thing hit statement but I do want to give the shot via. Is that went out with a teenage yeah. We hit open Margie couldn't and we went to school to more than drowning that we get about pop up. Get the rotting whale. And not me but the other one that's on fire cracker company asked. And one landed on Mars that needs bloated and Obama that and talent but being the homecoming court took a we get to later I made it anyway you in the about it. That lit the Nate. Good night kissing up. It's funny because I don't know Al where. I don't know how that they it and at that age. At this and at that age group that not all night. Here today. But anyway he had been beat by an amount that you and are now what I mean people you know regular black practiced. Our I'm very away at once and it went to the fact that. You know one another fat lip then. Well look when you have a great holiday. You to do thank you so much. I have masters than Jerry I'm gonna get to you we have a couple of lines open should have time and again in a few more caller shall you'll call. Right away it's 50 ward who's 601870. I'm Bob I'm going to try and call and I'm working I have a question for you. I'm 48 when you were younger were you able to shoot and by cherry bombs and eighties ports over. Were you able to shoot and bomb. While I did the as volatile we were supposed to but yes. Well yes I could I can buy those kind of thing all right. As far as a Drew Brees saying the saints need to beat the falcons to make a statement in us us. Allies say what is that statement and this one's. Bob the statement is the saints they'll all in the the pal is on the one this one's Bobbitt says we still don't have a winning season let's go to jury in the plot. Jerry what those at eight next season say that you. Yeah thank you well works well when you look at the beginning Nazis. What a lot of problems in the way your sport outlook Nick Jonas. Four winner shall cease. Then all of a sudden. You know rock you grow. Cup challenge and at peace mantra became darker or while outlook for statement within itself. So then. As well talk with Bobby. Can be you know on May agree we berries he's pretty. You know haven't quote unquote would or should go to now we ought to be Lebanon for so few belly in any. I tell you what that says and to all the science that followed sites and no thought well that's sort of a lot because. Not only or Eudora at least break out pop culture what you possibly could be and wade Oates and he'd charge me defense program that's problems and we've had a lot of entries. You know what let's not make an excuse as an idiot or via. But an eight may go in the beat planners ball there so accuracy. That makes such huge statement and they'll locked operatives wanted to begin in the next year's season. And well my whole ultimately will. LP here gee these younger are common on. Talking guarantees. That he would be a whole different cease and all of that takes place horse against the falcons. Note now Ahmad were born in there would've been engines will be out. I certainly hope so you know I've I've been a long time same span and I think one day during the week on. I had a Chris Jericho on the show. And we were talking about this and what he said is it is so true about this team. We need depth and we need better back ups in the week we just need an over all. All stronger roster with who we need a when someone goes down we have someone strong enough to step and right on and I believe if we can go into Atlanta. And bill of falcons it's gonna say an awful lot about the character of the team. Here we are no shot of the playoffs and we're gonna go when we're gonna play a very good team well. I can guarantee you Bob. From watching coach but he grew worried. Different player we've thirty years. But. In longevity with coach Payton and in Drew Brees but you know. They eat or competitors they're professionals. They wanna win and end. That sometimes some change will be look at that the draft picks. We're not work about the update because we've got too much get money out there to beat you wit. Well look at that built momentum building tops and it. And also. A law. Believe it coach Payton Drew Brees wants to beat the falcons as bad as the war. All right Gerri thanks so much could go to notre may Bob got about two minutes how laureate from a Bob. Are doing great comeback you to. I'm doing Dimon would do what all the pleasure view polling in this afternoon. Well what more detectable for you get copier. You year. The order right though wonder eight game here. What message you'll have to say if the saints go eight Nate. We still not a knock our roads are as of the mediocre are and we're on our life. What they will be very great dream. Only I think. You're welcome but I Mika. They ago or you know and art be like oh yeah. Maybe ago. They would. Oh would they would break it is true but not between every year. We need stronger back ups that's what we need so. Good player real good right now go out big bill would gain. I'm Lance. Are you shooting a U shooting fireworks New Year's Eve. No no life and I'm but I will. Just have a little. Drink and that's about it now probably. I'll walk out about it 1130 a lot my boat dog. And you load the fireworks. Ali. For a strange dog thank you dramatic about. All right same new text messages that means they can beat a good team and that they are on the right track and here is well liked. Wait till next year a bad day. We'll take a quick break and come right back on WW well. It. On the go right back out to the polls we're talking about Drew Brees and the saints need to make a statement Sunday against the falcons if they win their eight Nate. What kind of statement does that make to you Jason of this presidential season Peyton a. Not occur because we're gonna lose about her fourth spot in the neck and neck at torture that would that mean you don't need. I think making a statement sounds nice and your but it boat and actually worked. You latched election won the last two games and finished what seven and nine. And that those two days like you know got momentum. They need they finished on that note we're gonna seed in the team is looking better and you know won't want for. So. I don't really fit that transition between the end of this season and flat he's in Atlanta party in the hope they need smoked in the playoffs I can't stand them. It help the same in any way shape or form to win it skiing in. And I want it seemed to beat that I don't want the team to be better it's possible. And we need you know we are five spot in the last year we got shot right into the night. But in the corner. Arteries that go to the line and burial for use in this year. On and we ought a couple of players that really could use. Of course the saints row have a record if they want someone in the purse for all of a moving up so I'm not really sure. And I mean I don't know okay. I heard Bobby Indy talking about it yesterday. As for as the difference well it would make so I really don't know for instance if you got a chance to pick. Five spots higher would that really really make a difference that I don't I don't have the knowledge to know. Well when you're when you have that it's a lot better. There and if you have the thirteenth there. Now about what about a hams and what about if you have the tenth pick as opposed to the fifteenth. Well I mean your spot spot in the spot where he'd go five. On the thirteenth it looked at the same thing Goldman you know between between 10158. Player we might want. I mean they're always a better chance. At pat and somebody be interested and gotten sick and adopted being picked. I mean it just might think I'd. I want it okay well I'm not going to be two games because it'll help in the long. Gotcha thank you Jason Pritchard it's so much. All right our question is no Drew Brees says we have to put a strong with the make a statement well if we go Nate Nate what kind of statement. Those that make let me on let me read a couple of book. Text messages were quick like people really forget that the slate. This is a truce saying that this is a true statement people wrote forget of the state should be in the playoffs. But don't we lost a bunch of close games by two point but no one's mentioning that at all so weak. Should be in the playoffs I'm finishing the season eight that will be a huge deal last time we finish eight Nate the next season with a Super Bowl champs. Just Flynn.
