A little Fat Tuesday. I know that's bothersome when people out about this morning. And yet you work in the front court you don't suck it just a few blocks away from. Yet you know sometimes it's great work in the French Quarter but some. But at the models that lucrative but there were more sweeter weirdos than usual out about. Well if we get due in court. I do not. I was gonna happen with an idea that Bob is Ron debuts Sunday night but I'm not Beckham who you know they paid as the big MC he's the voice of the ball.

I was I was going to ultimately and completely people's way. Right there but I think I could have touched you the moment. I. A great job bringing about all the action from the fiftieth anniversary. Bock is rhymed. And ended up bringing us some great weather in the ticket McNamee too shabby today like it was over the weekend anyway. No we don't have the rainfall like we saw Saturday and Sunday and even if you didn't appreciate that shield to the air on Monday brought today will be a bit milder highs in the sixties which is where we should be for this time of year. Yet not the prettiest they've mostly cloudy but only 20% chance for a few showers and most of those will not likely be until later in the afternoon so. All the more in parades I think she go off without a hitch chilly but again milder by later today and tried to start maybe a few showers by later in the afternoon and evening. So most of the rain that we see in it won't be much of it. Should be after all of operating at pretty much know exactly what's all the pre to kind of wrapping up than most folks are headed home. Is when we start to see may be few showers and and the folks that are still allow later the afternoon and evening of the once the quarter and I don't think it camera we hear about a couple sprinkles here and there. All right I'll be back out here at midnight watching them ceremonial we've shut down Bourbon Street with the police officers. In cars on. Horseback. Going down the street talent people's Mardi Gras is over it's time to go home we might have a shower cure on the night. Maybe a shower or two around midnight it'll be very mild temperatures only in the sixty so if you're trying to plan the war drove through the day. Chile now little milder by the afternoon and then by tonight and overnight wrongly dropping into the sixty sort of being very mild. Afternoon and overnight period so. Dress appropriately lectured or light jacket now averaging gonna need it won't need it for later today and then after a couple of cocktails you definitely one man that. Just look at the I have them them you're thinking like you should be two and tomorrow for Ash Wednesday also Valentine's Day out of the weather outlook. Not bad again about a 20% chance for a few showers during the day high temperatures that will be a little warm will be in the seventy so for Ash Wednesday Valentine's Day. Again not bad and then we're gonna stay warm and mostly tried to wrap up the week. It's and we're gonna get hurt near eighty degrees for the region then yeah Thursday and Friday both day's highs upper seventies to near eighty degrees so could easily top butted eighty. One of those days and then rainfall with a cold front arrives by next weekend. Yet we couldn't we don't know a single weather patterns in the last round exit with the Atlanta for very long at all force he. It winter weather all spring and summer just about every week lately the exact quote to you what timing it out today really eat it could be so much worse it's going to be fairly decent party girl.

Become the alive from the bourbon Orleans hotel and tell me what's your perfect Fat Tuesday meal what's the Mardi Gras food what's that case that you associate. With the final day of the carnival celebration all coming up next. We'll get Steve Geller in here with sports on your Mardi Gras 2008 team. Sports time now on WWL saw throughout from the urban Orleans hotel the French Quarter right back to our way to street studios and thing happy Mardi Gras Steve Geller. Thank you Dave happy Mardi Gras everybody Anthony Davis poured in 38 points and had ten rebounds as the pelicans beat the pistons for the eleventh time in their last twelve meetings 118 to 103. Nikola Mirotic hope that tells pull away in the third quarter as he finished with 21 points and twelve boards. Coach Alvin Gentry is happy squad won two in a row for the first time since losing DeMarcus Cousins to injury. It takes a low wallow fire and so but I think we're. Doing a good job of you know figuring things out. You know last two games played this well. One more game before the all star break the pelicans are home tomorrow to host the LA lakers. BL SU basketball teams coming off an 82 to 66 victory over Ole miss him which to walk reads let the wayward 26 points the tigers play in Tuscaloosa tonight and lost to Alabama by eight points earlier this season in the Reid had five turnovers in that game the coach will wade says they need to support him better this. I'm Iraq first game we hung about to drive. Turned the ball over too much in November in the first game but our guards I'm about to drive that gave him the ball terrible spots they gave the ball in the wrong. By. Disaster. The tigers and tide Mardi Gras match up tips off at 8 PM on WWL pregame coverage we'll get started at 730. Former now former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Mann Zell told Good Morning America that he's been taking medication for bipolar disorder and that his goal is to get back on the football field. Man Zell was a first round pick of the browns back in 2014. But was I believe two seasons later. He's acknowledged that no one's to blame except him after drinking binges were documented on social media and he had a run in with the law that included a domestic assault charge. I'm Steve Geller and that is your early morning look at sports. 553 David Steve with you on your radio day as Steve so two wins in a row for the pelicans. On their Mardi Gras break are they wearing their purple green and gold Marty guard uniform. Oh yeah they're fully decked out in there they occur almost looks like an LA lakers uniform when you tune in but yet their purple gold and green uniforms are on display current. I've seen that that may be the the reason for their success they took carnival with them. On their Mardi Gras road trip. Now they've won two out of three haven't done that and DeMarcus Cousins went down with his season ending Achilles injury. Does it look like they're figuring out how to play without him and what has been the key to these two victories in a row do you think. That may show there's some success still down the road for the stand. Yeah I think everybody kind of expected that the weight of the world would fall on Anthony davis' shoulders and obviously the team coach Alvin Gentry doesn't want that to happen. I'll we'd been seeing guys like drew holiday. Or the new acquisition the Colin your take stepping up to be more the presence in this in this team right now you can't really replace the Marcus cousins production. On a nightly basis but of everybody. I've does a little more of anti Davis does a little more Jrue Holiday. I'm irritates and any of the other guys on the bench and I'd just a little bit more every game they should be able to make up for the cousins departure. Army won't be consistent a consistent product every night but I still think there's this team can hang onto that eight spot in the Western Conference. Iowa last night to dinner with a lot of shooting from outside the arc three point land without DeMarcus Cousins inside maybe they're looking to be more of an outside shooting team. It worked forum last night will see that looks good going forward on board will review with more sports in about fifteen minutes happy Mardi Gras Steve what's your perfect food perfect Tuesday I have to say good good a couple of trouble lies perfect you know chicken sausage of rice. Right cop. Agassi it's easier to eat when your on the go yeah exactly. And we'll talk to you coming up here on WWL. All right up next we're back live from the urban Orleans hotel I've got one of our. Security. Personnel here to find out if people have been partying a little too much organized. As we get ready for Fat Tuesday here on WWL that's next live from suburban Arlington it's now and I am last this studios and made my way to suburban Orleans hotel where we're come India alive this morning here on WW well.
