6:43 am
and new standards for the testing of cribs. the manufacturers will not be allowed to re-tight at any bolts and screws as the cribs come loose during the testing. the cpsc says that's not what parents tend to do. one last thing, if you've got one of these drop side cribs at home that you are using, you can get a free immobilizer from the manufacturer, it will at least keep that railing in place although the old crib won't necessarily meet the new standards. >> parents have enough to worry about. they don't need to worry about their child in a crib. thank you so much. 6:43. giants pitcher brian wilson is pulling out a new catch phrase this season. we'll let you -- he's going to tell you about it i should say. >> got him at the end. got him. basically it's when you're talking a little fun trash. and you say, sorry, popa is
