7:01 am
"show me the money." and good morning, everyone. so much mullah waiting to be found looking at these millions across the country waiting for people to claim it right there. we're still trying to -- >> west virginia $161 million inside that warehouse. we're going to go there in just a little bit. also, look at this. just an unimaginable scene. goodyear blimp catches fire crashes, burns but not before the pilot got all of his passengers to safety. what he did next made him an absolute hero. >> it did. but right to last night's republican presidential debate, the first in which all the major declared candidates took part. you see them there. seven on stage. they didn't go after each other, their only target, the man in
7:02 am
the white house and john berman has been tracking it all. good morning. >> reporter: well, this was the first high-stakes debate that included the front-runner mitt romney and had its moments. big announcement a big retreat and the biggest target of all, not even on the stage. seven republicans took the stage, but one quickly took over. minnesota congresswoman michele bachmann froze the debate with a declaration. >> i filed today my paperwork to seek the office of the presidency of the united states. >> reporter: bachmann entered the fray with that announcement and other big ones. >> president obama is a one-term president. >> reporter: indeed the debate seemed like a two-house race to outbash the president. >> any one of the people on this stage would be a better president than president obama. >> failure of leadership on this administration's part -- >> his way failed. >> this president has failed. >> has he done one thing right when it comes to the economy? >> boy that's a tough question.
7:03 am
>> reporter: before they try to beat the president they have to beat each other. and so far at least they all seem to be trying to do that awfully gently. even tim pawlenty who was name calling only two days ago marrying president obama's care plan to mitt romney calling it obamneycare. >> if it was obamneycare on fox news, why is not not obamneycare with the governor right there. >> using the term obamneycare was a reflection of the president's comments that he designed obama care on the massachusetts health care plan. >> reporter: romney out in front escaped unscathed diverting every question he could toward the president. even questions about his own health care record. >> i can't wait to debate him and say, mr. president, if in fact, you did look at what we did in massachusetts, why didn't you give me a call and ask what worked and what didn't? >> reporter: in his first debate since most of his staff deserted
7:04 am
him newt gingrich took controversial stands seeming hesitant on republican paw rilen's plan to restructure medicare. >> you can't convince the american people it's a good idea, maybe it's not a good idea. >> reporter: but he did come out strongly in favor of one reality show. >> "dancing with the stars" or "american idol." >> "american idol." >> real controversy there. talking to republicans overnight most were surprised that tim pawlenty refused to engage mitt romney on the obamneycare label. most felt that michele bachmann did well to seize the moment. one told me there has to be stirrings in wasilla, wasilla where, of course sarah palin wins. >> i would think all the candidates aren't in are thinking about a jon huntsman or rick perry may be looking at it. whatever you think of the views of the candidates they all acquitted themselves pretty well so the losers were those who didn't show up on the stages. >> how long can they continue to play nice like that? that was a bit of a surprise.
7:05 am
>> the first rule of first debates is follow ronald reagan's commandment, don't speak ill of each other. as we move closer to the caucuses and primaries, the gloves are going to be off. let's bring in one of the big winners, michele bachmann. she took the moment to announce she was officially in the race last night. joining us now from new hampshire. and, congresswoman, i'm reading the reviews this morning, bachmann is a winner she's done herself the most good, a steal the show performance. you must be feeling pretty good this morning. >> well, i'm extremely grateful last night for the debate and it was just a thrill to be able to be there and it was wonderful, i think, to be able to announce last night that we had filed our paperwork for seeking the office of the presidency of the united states. it was just terrific the welcome that we had from the people of new hampshire, so i was grateful to be a part of that wonderful historic evening. >> we were just talking go it. all the candidates on the stage last night took aim at president
7:06 am
obama and all of you would repeal president obama's health care bill, but i want to ask you about governor mitt romney what he did in massachusetts. he said there are big differences between what president obama did nationally and what he did in massachusetts. do you accept that explanation, or do you think the massachusetts plan is more like what governor pawlenty called it obamneycare? >> well, i think it is very clear what i said last evening, that as president of the united states it would be one of my top priority the full-scale repeal of obama care. i've been involved in this fight from the beginning, george when president obama was trying to put this forth, because as the congressional budget office said this is a job killer. it's going to kill 800,000 jobs and even more unfortunate, president obama is taking away from senior citizens $500 billion out of medicare and shifting it to younger people and obama care. this is a very serious issue.
7:07 am
>> governor romney made that point as well last night. what i'm asking is do you think what he did in massachusetts is the model for what president obama did for the country? >> well what i'm focusing on is the model that president obama gave to the american people and one thing i know george in 2014 no matter what any state decides to do with their health care obama care will trump all 50 states and so it doesn't matter if states right now are trying to mitigate against the ill effects of obama care obama care will trump all state law. >> so from that -- >> that's why it's very important -- so the states actually effectively lose whatever they ryed to put into place, because obama care will steamroll over all the states. >> so no big differences between you and governor romney on health care? >> well, i know what i will do. i will -- i will repeal obama care because it won't matter what happened in any of the states.
7:08 am
obama care will steamroll over that state law. that's the reality. >> let me ask you another question about gay marriage. at first you suggested that you don't think that state laws that legalize gay marriage should be overturned and there are states both iowa and new hampshire have legalized -- >> no george no george the question i was asked was if i was president of the united states would i come into the states that passed that legislation and advocate either for or against a state law? and as president of the united states, that would not be my role. >> but you later -- >> to advocate for or against it. >> later you said you were for a constitutional amendment. a constitutional amendment would -- >> i was the chief author of a constitutional amendment to define marriage as between a man and a woman. that's consistently been my position. and i do support that position at a federal level.
7:09 am
but what the questioner asked me is if as president of the united states, i would come into a state and advocate either for or against a state law, and i said that i would not do that. i believe in the tenth amendment and i believe in federalism. >> but you believe in the constitutional amendment which would overturn the state law? >> i believe in the constitutional amendment but also one thing i do know on the doma law, defense of marriage act, president obama has said as the president of the united states who swore that he would faithfully execute the laws of the united states, he said that he would pick and choose and not select -- not enforce laws that are on the books. that's why we're seeing a movement toward a federal marriage amendment because president obama won't even stand up for laws that president clinton signed and passed into law and that's the defense of marriage act which would preserve marriage between one man and one woman. >> congratulations on getting in the race thanks for coming in
7:10 am
this morning. robin? >> thank you, george. >> all right george let's turn to the latest on anthony weiner. the president speaking out for the first i'm on this and whether he should resign. jon karl joins us. >> reporter: he's still off at an undisclosed location receiving an undisclosed form of treatment. democrats say they have no idea where he is but do say they don't want him back here. >> the house clerk made it official. weiner is taking a leave of absence while he sorts out his personal problems. >> mr. weiner for a period of two weeks. >> reporter: two weeks? democratic leaders in the house want it to be forever, and now the president is weighing in. >> ultimately there's going to be a decision for him and his constituents. i can tell you that if it was me, i would resign. >> reporter: weiner has told his colleagues that he won't make a decision on resigning until his wife huma abedin returns from
7:11 am
her trip with hillary clinton in the middle east due back tomorrow. the pressure is on. late yesterday nancy pelosi again called on him to resign but acknowledged she can't force him to leave. >> none of us not anybody here has the power to force somebody out of office. that person has to decide himself as to whether he will stay or he will go. >> reporter: but speaker pelosi also made it clear she is ready to play hard ball if weiner defies party leaders and decides to stay in congress. pelosi suggested yesterday weiner could be stripped of his committee assignment if he tries to come back and the entire democratic caucus minus weiner is meeting today. they could also vote to throw him out of that caucus. robin? >> that would say a lot. all right, jon, thank you so much. now moving on this next story is going to -- a lot of people -- >> a lot of anger.
7:12 am
there is dramatic proof those extra fees every time you fly is adding big numbers to the airlines. steve owe sunsunsami reports. >> reporter: it didn't take us long to hear horror stories from passengers who paid extra for bags that weren't delivered. these are things that used to be free. >> baggage fees are ridiculous. >> i shouldn't have to pay extra. >> they'll charge for air. >> reporter: passengers couldn't believe it that the airlines are making nearly $6 billion with a "b" just in fees. 3.4 billion for bag fee, 2.3 for ticket changes and somehow the industry is still struggling. >> the flying public hates the airlines. it's been a race to the bottom. vicious circle of poorer service and higher fares and more fees. >> reporter: it's amazing how it all adds up. for bags on flights the nation's largest carriers will charge you
7:13 am
at least $25 for the first one, 35 for the second and more than 100 for the third. it's another $20 to buy the ticket over the phone and $150 to change a nonrefundable ticket so the flight next month on united from newark to san diego with three bags jumped from $611 to $792 with all those fees. this is so lucrative that southwest airline, the discount airline with famously no fee, could make a billion dollars each year if they started charging them. delta made nearly that much in bag fees alone, $952 million. united continental, 655$655 million. american, $580 million. >> people are trying to travel. they're trying to keep the economy going, but not making it easy. >> reporter: would you rather they charge you on the ticket and tell you straight up. >> yes, i would rather them charge me on the ticket. >> reporter: the industry says it's suffering too with higher
7:14 am
fuel costs. nearly 37% higher so the fees aren't going away. in fact there are more fees coming. one of the things the tri is considering is charging more for a bag when the ticket is purchased at the last minute. george? >> wow. that will be a lot of anger about that too. it is your turn to weigh in. do you think airline baggage fees are accessive. you can do it at our website but now to josh elliott who is busy voting. >> i love the woman who said they're going to soon charge for air. well said. i mean really in a nutshell. good morning to both of you and all of you. we begin with encouraging economic news albeit for the millions of americans currently looking for a job. survey out this morning finds 20% of hiring managers expect to add workers in the next three months. that's the best percentage since the economic recovery reportedly began. and the cia is reportedly preparing to launch secret drone strikes against militants in yemen. now, until now, strikes were
7:15 am
conducted with the knowledge of yemen's government but the u.s. is worried about the power vacuum there but with the country's president currently in saudi arabia after being attacked last month. and a security review is under way on capitol hill after hackers managed to break into the senate's website. now, we're told no classified data was compromised. the same hackers claimed responsibility for attacks on the fbi, sony and nintendo. a dramatic scene in this illinois cornfield. a b-17 bomber from world war ii burst into flames after an emergency landing. the fire actually started in the engine. thankfully all seven people on board escaped in time. they were flying to indiana for an event this weekend. and a rough day on san francisco bay. take a look. that's a 45-foot catamaran owned by oracle racing practicing for the america's cup. one crew member thrown through the wing sail. another thrown into the water. this is why sailors are wearing
7:16 am
crash helmets and this is why sailing on rough seas is something i won't be doing any time soon. >> they're okay. >> they're okay. everybody, again, is okay. >> you think the way that sail is so high that would happen all the time. look at that. >> yeah, and, you know -- it gets awfully rough out there on that. >> white cap how choppy it is out there. >> they're braver men and women than i. that is for sure. >> i hear that. thanks, josh. hey, sam. >> good morning, everybody. let's start with the storms. big booming thunderstorms powerful storms right in the middle of the country talking about from kansas city oklahoma city involved st. louis and nashville. gusty winds, large hail big-time practically summer thunderstorms and the heat continue midland, probably a record. lubbock, you're a record as well and tallahassee, 102 in sargentvannah was topped since 198880. drier and milder along the west
7:17 am
coast. scenes like that in san francisco that we just showed you probably not looking as rough today. a dog is family. and when it comes to your family's health you want the best, now you can have it without paying the most. new pet armor plus the same ingredients as frontline plus. but it costs half as much. sure, our dogs may be called pets but we all know they're family. new pet armor plus sameninininininininininininininininininininininininininininininininininininininininininininininini
7:18 am
just double-checked that weather forecast in san francisco. while it is milder and drier there is a still a gale warning probably until about 5:00. >> thank you. now to a little girl making medical history after successfully battling rabies, the disease is almost all fatal unless a person is quickly vaccinated. but she's become just the third person in the country to survive without getting the vaccine. our neal karlinsky has her story. >> reporter: if you hear the name precious and imagine a dainty little girl with no fighting spirit, you've never meant 8-year-old precious reynolds. precious came into uc davis children's hospital with a 2% chance of survival. she couldn't walk couldn't even swallow. she had an infection which was
7:19 am
spreading to her brain and no one knew what it was. >> her first symptoms were she had a real bad stomachache and like paralyzed. she couldn't talk she couldn't cough, nothing. all we knew it was horrible. >> reporter: doctors were stumped and ran a series of tests and were surprised to learn she had rabies. she spends a lot of time around animals at what's called a mutton buster riding sheep in rodeos but that's not what did it, a feral or wildcat that she said scratched her on the arm at her rural california school. >> it looked like a regular cat. >> reporter: rabies is normally a death sentence if not treated and most often it comes from wild animals or bats. >> typically when you approach a ferial cat on the street is more afraid of you and will usually retreat. >> reporter: by the time her legs gave out and rushed to a hospital her symptoms were too far along so they put her into a coma and let her body fight it
7:20 am
the best it could. after all, this is a girl who's been wrestling since the age of 4 and routinely beats boys. >> her prognosis is very good. she's now in rehabilitation and she should go home next week. >> reporter: today she's up and walking and rebuilding her strength as only the third person in u.s. history to beat rabies without the vaccine. >> that is her post. >> reporter: for neal karlinsky, abc news. >> her little muscles. glad she's going to be okay. >> if i was a wrestler i wouldn't want to take her on. coming up the chilling evidence that may be the most dramatic in the murder case of casey anthony. why a tiny heart-shaped sticker may be the key to the crime. >> is your money sitting in this warehouse waiting for you to claim in in our new series "show me the money." an amazing story of survival and sacrifice. what one pilot did to make sure

her car crash and why she says aggressive photogs could have, well, drove her to it. >> she's said that she's had enough. first, george, to the latest on the casey anthony trial. the prosecution could wrap up the case in the next day or two. jurors heard more forensic testimony monday. we're told they could begin deliberating in less than two weeks. ashleigh banfield has all the latest for us. >> reporter: if trials are measured in small victories -- >> we're talking apples and oranges, judge. >> reporter: -- it seemed like a good day for the defense after the judge, who has repeatedly sided with prosecutors, instead gave the defense a break and tossed out a prosecution power point. >> the court does find it troubling. the court will not permit the power point. >> reporter: and it seemed things might even get better for casey anthony when an fbi fingerprint expert took the stand. >> it was three pieces of duct tape. >> reporter: she was tasked with inspecting the duct tape that was attached to caylee's skull,
7:32 am
but she had to admit she didn't find what she was looking for. >> you were not able to find any fingerprints on either piece of duct tape? >> that is correct. >> reporter: no fingerprints, but she did find something else, a mysterious clue. >> an outline of a heart appeared in one of the corners on the edge of that piece of duct tape. >> reporter: it is key evidence because police found a heart-shaped sticker in the muck where caylee's remains were dumped and they found similar stickers inside the anthony home, but does it tie casey to murder? >> do you have any idea how it got there, when it got there, who put it there or why? >> no, i do not. >> reporter: the defense could begin its case in just a few days, possibly on the 16th of june, coincidentally, the third anniversary of the day caylee was last seen alive. for "good morning america," ashleigh banfield, abc news. joining us now is the rest of our trial team, nancy grace,
7:33 am
you know her as the host of "nancy grace" on hln, beautiful home down in atlanta. good morning, nancy, and here in the studio is our legal analyst, good morning, dan abrams. nancy, let me begin with you. the two key moments from monday, the imprint of the heart-shaped sticker and the duct tape with no fingerprints. how damaging? >> well, i think that everyone wants there to be fingerprints. we've all been so brainwashed by what we see on tv that we expect that. we expect dna. we expect all sorts of bells and whistles to appear at trial. the reality is that thanks to tropical storm fay, caylee's little body sat in feet of water for weeks on end along with the duct tape. by the time you finally see the duct tape in trial, it's almost transparent, so nearly all of the back and the gooey part is gone. no way to get fingerprints off that. >> so they weren't too surprised
7:34 am
that there were no fingerprints. >> it's not that unusual not to find fingerprints in a case like this. defense attorneys love to use it to their advantage. they love to say, where were the fingerprints, but the truth is what people don't know is to put a fingerprint on something, it doesn't just require you to touch something, you actually have to have certain oils on your finger, et cetera, so you don't always leave a fingerprint every time you touch something. >> the prosecution could wrap up in the next day or two. how strong of a case have they presented? >> look, i think they presented a pretty overwhelming case and proved beyond a reasonable doubt, in my view, that there was a dead body in the car, and so that's really important, and you know why it's really important is because if the defense had just said, this was an accident, she lost it, she then took the body, she put it there to make it seem like someone else had done it, she didn't know what she was doing in that state, none of that evidence would matter meaning the car evidence wouldn't matter because the defense would be, in essence, conceding, but instead
7:35 am
now they have to battle the fact that there was a dead body in her car, which is a huge problem for the defense. >> they have really, as many have said, really boxed themselves in with what they have claimed happened. >> absolutely, i mean, because they have said it was george anthony, the father, who found the body in the pool with casey, that he's the one who took the body. suddenly they've got a lot more to demonstrate if their theory is going to make sense. >> nancy, the defense has raised some issues, of course, and they have filed some motions. they want to bring some experts back on the stand. when they start presenting their case, what do you see later this week? >> well, the most interesting thing that i see is, "a" whether tot mom, casey anthony, will take the stand or not. typically the advice is do not put your client on the stand. they will be destroyed on cross-examination. the state is licking their chops to get tot mom casey anthony on the stand.
7:36 am
second question, will they actually bring on the utility meter reader roy kronk that they say put caylee's remains there after he had first found them then redistributed them in order to get the reward. it's a preposterous theory. i think they will lose credibility even worse but they've got him on their witness thing. another thing they did was a big trial error but the jury will probably never know about it. they forgot to keep some of the state's witnesses for further cross and they excused them so the judge had to sign an extraordinary order bringing them back in from out of state. >> in the end as to whether casey will testify, to some degree she can't testify, and to some degree she can't not testify. and so that's why so many of us who watch so many trials simply don't know whether she's going to actually testify or not. >> it keeps us watching. dan and nancy, thank you both again so much. we'll check back with you, you know, later on this week.

8:20 am
showing again your acceptance speech and the great smile and you seem so happy, but you told us in your last book how difficult it really was. you weren't able to be a child. have a childhood, a real childhood. >> i don't think about it too much anymore. i don't think about what i didn't have and what i wish i had had but i just think about what i did have and in a way it was important for me just to write the first book and put it out there. my childhood was unusual. you know, i really left home young and, you know i was out of the house by 17 and that's unusual and didn't finish high school so there are things that i wish i could have had or done over, but, you know it's always what i can learn and how i can sort of move that into the future and make a better life. >> people are going to learn from your book really. i want to read a quote about your dad. >> okay. >> that i think is really -- what does it mean to watch a man who hurt you grow older to see

8:22 am
>> that's so cool. something that a lot of people can relate to and you write a lot about farrah too and how wonderful it was that you had a chance before her unfortunate passing to have a moment with her and write eloquently about that. what did that mean to you. >> i didn't know her. the reason it was such a big deal and i was so touched to have to get a moment with her while she was sick is that i didn't really know her growing up. like i didn't have that special bond that i wish i would have had. she was our sort of common-law mother but like i didn't get a chance to know her as well as i would have liked to so to be able to sit her and have her say to me, you're doing so well and you're works was amazing. >> very special for to you have that. >> yeah, like that connection, you know so for me to move on with. >> i'm sure for her too. >> i hope so. i wish she had had not passed. >> we all do. we miss her. thanks tatum.

8:33 am
well we always write about what we know. so our own personal story inspired the series. >> but you created this with your former husband. >> yes. >> peter. >> who you were marryied for how many years. >> 20 years. >> 20 years. >> and we co-created "the nanny" and executive produced that as well. when i sold this idea to tv land i called them up immediately and i said i just sold this idea inspired by our story and i want you to be my partner on it. let's do it again. >> and you guys are back at it. >> yeah, we're back in business. >> i want to get to it but how -- how could it be that for 20 years of marriage -- >> you know, that's a question that we ask on the show all the time. my character is always say, how did i not know? you know hindsight is always 20/20 but at the time -- we met when we were 15 so we didn't have a whole lot of experience and we loved each other, we had a good marriage.
8:34 am
and the metrosexual was really coming into vogue, so i thought that was it. >> and little did you know. >> i know. he actually didn't come out until two years after our divorce and we divorced because i had a very garden variety mid-life crisis. i had found success and fame through "the nanny" but i was still not happy and i realized that i really didn't know myself. i had never developed myself as an autonomous person separate from my parents or marriage and couldn't find my own voice. >> been together since you were 15. >> he was kind of very controlling at the time. subsequent to our divorce we both got straight therapy and i think that now we have -- we're happily divorced because we have a very mature and adult relationship. >> happily working together and let's show a little bit of your husband peter in the show.
8:35 am
>> okay. >> i completely forgot about that. i can't go. i've got a date. >> a what? >> i met this guy the other night when judy and i went to a concert. >> a date? >> yes. oh, what's with the sad fake eyes peter? don't do this to me. >> do what? >> you cannot be jealous and gay. >> why not? i can multi-task. >> that's john michael higgins and he's wonderful and we have a great chemistry and he straddles that sense so beautifully between a man that's lived most of his life as a straight man and a married man at that and just beginning to try and integrate. >> starting a whole new life. >> well, that's kind of the paradox of the situation that hopefully if the audience embraces the show as much as i'm hopeful they will will last a
8:36 am
long time. but because of the economy, they're unable to sell their house, so even though they're divorced -- >> that's the new world. >> they're forced to live together because they can't afford to live separately until they do sell the house and i have a lot of friends that are in that unfortunate situation. so he's trying to integrate into the gay community. i'm trying to integrate into the single world and both of us really know how to be married better than anything else. >> it must be fun after "the nanny" to play somebody completely different. >> i love that the global message is love is love. because just as peter and i have the characters are learning how to reinvent their relationship and their friendship into something else that accommodates where they are in their life now. >> before you go today we want to reach even further back into your past. where's the clip? saturday night -- >> are you as good in bed as you
8:37 am
are on that dance floor? well, are you? >> you and john travolta. how about that? >> there i am. i think i was 17. >> still have the moves. >> that was my first -- do i ever. better than ever, baby. yes. that was my first part. my first movie. >> what a way to break in. >> i know. it was wonderful. what a great experience and he's so great. i saw him on a red carpet on i think the golden globes one year, and he was right next to me doing interviews and i saw him so i went right up to him and i said are you as good in bed as you are on the dance floor? well, his wife's jaw dropped because she didn't get it but he got it and he said, oh i'm so proud of all your success and it's so great to see you. i love him. he's wonderful. >> he is and we're so happy for all of your successes, as well. >> thank you, thank you. >> "happily divorced" premieres

i think i got it. i'm going to take five and go think about it. but a break isn't in the cars. it's time to meet the incredible troupe of russian acrobats who make up the act called bonke, it means basket. i didn't know it was going to be two guys' hands. each other's strength and balance. proud to point out in their act there are no props. no wheel no wires and no harness like the one i get to wear. after some quick pointers i jump. tah-dah! then i flip. you're going to get me right? and then it's time for the double backflip. okay, so i didn't stick the landing but the double backflip has me feeling bold. not for long though. the wheel of death awaits. frank laurean is in chief justice the safety rigging for
8:45 am
all of zarcana though the performers don't use any. why do you have to call it the wheel of death? why can't it be called the wheel of life. >> possible injury. >> finally it's time under the purple haze of theater light i meet the wheel's performers. roberto and his son, part of a nine generation family of circus performers. you can see why i might worry. they perform on the outside of the wheel, nothing but a mat between him and the stage. this camera shows ray's perspective and the brothers have a sister who used to perform with them. she's out of the family business. >> yeah, she -- >> don't get any funny ideas with me, okay? >> oh, maybe, you know. >> reporter: all i know is the top of that wheel is 40 feet high. >> i need knee pads too. >> yeah. >> reporter: what in sam hill did i sign up for? did i mention there is no safety net. ready. >> no, i'm not ready. i have a wedgie and i'm nervous.
8:46 am
i'm not going to get hurt am i? holy molly. no, no no no. no, no no. >> reporter: oh, yes, yes, yes. >> no, no no, no. >> reporter: around the wheel of death not once twice but three times and i am not feeling like a lady. i'm good. >> let's roll. >> reporter: i don't want to be in the family business. my fear is real but so is the respect i feel for all of these performers and the relief i feel when it's over. i know you need a woman in your act. i have two words for you. >> yes, let's go. >> robin roberts. >> enjoying it. wow! >> you're an athlete. >> yeah scariest thing i have ever done and i -- >> you were great. >> just full disclosure, i dove in college so that wasn't totally scary and that wheel of death, it's real, people. >> is there a safety harness of
8:47 am
any kind. >> not when they're on it. i had literally like a little dental floss. that's what it felt like to me but in the production guy, only a couple of blocks away from spider-man. i don't think this well. this is big. there are 22 different productions around the world. it's big. it's $50 million. definitely worth it. >> they always put on a good show. >> they do and, well -- >> robben? >> coming up next from the big top to the biggest sporting event of the world, the special olympics. supermodel brooklyn decker and timod

8:51 am
these games and so there's a -- a great celebration of many of our athletes speaking to the future and what it means to live and work for the good victory. >> i don't think people realize it was 1968 that she started it. >> 40 plus years ago and now we're 3.a -- over 3.7 million athletes. 50,000 special olympic games every year around the world and these games really not just the biggest sporting event in the world but i think the biggest unity event. all about playing together so we can learn to live together so it's very exciting to be at the home of the olympics. >> when i was on the board of directors, we had the unified team. >> brooklyn is going to run in the unified marathon. >> tim talked me into it. a half marathon two weeks, sure, i can do it. i think i really am. there's a 10k and half marathon. >> challenge yourself. >> all these athletes are doing the same thing so i'll try to
