patriots and rams fans are descending on atlanta with just a few days left until superbowl weekend. and while they had to shell out thousands of dollars to get into the stadium --- they are able to save a little money on food this year.ore.good morning... mercedes-benz stadium made waves by becoming the first facility to introduce "fan first" pricing at its concession stands... so even on the biggest sporting event of the year... they're
going to keep that promise... and earlier... i got an inside look at all the food and drinks they'll be serving on super bowl sunday... $2 hot dogs and refillable sodas... to the most expensive fan first item... $6 dollar chicken tenders and fries... there's no need to break the bank to fill up your stomach during the big game... kevin gillespie (chef/owner of gamechanger inside mercedes- benz stadium): even though it's the super bowl, it didn't seem appropriate to change our ethos. we want atlanta and we want mercedes-benz stadium to be not only the best food in the country as far as food is concerned, but we want people to consider it the best value of any place in the country. the only drawback for super bowl goers this sunday? chick- fil-a will remain closed... but no worries... if you want to splurge on this 14-dollar homage to chick-fil-a... chef kevin gillespie has you covered... kevin gillespie: it's the "closed on sunday" chicken sandwich. it's just a classic sort of crispy chicken slider but it's been really, really well received and i think it's because it has that
perfect mix of like sweet and salty and spicy and tangy.lily zhao: now this is chef kevin gillespie's favorite the closed on sunday sandwich, so i had to try it. yeah that's pretty good.gillespie and his staff created drinks with an la and boston flare... the paloma and the new englander and if you want to dress up your hot dog... check out the la chicarron dog with pinto beans and jalapenos or the new england beantown frank with maple syrup and bacon... kevin gillespie: we were going to take inspiration from whoever was playing our home team. well, in the event that no home team is playing, we felt like we should take inspiration from both teams and we wanted that people coming into town would see something familiar. if you're curious about the closed on sunday chicken sandwich it actually tastes nothing like the tradition chick-fil-a sandwich... and i can tell you if i wanted to spend about $13 dollars for food getting those two hotdogs and a soda... that would be a pretty sweet deal... reporting live in atlanta... i'm ( darya the ( darya )( darya ) one of the players taking the
field this weekend, is bay area native julian edelman. he began playing at woodside high... where his coaches say they always expected big things from him,( james ) kate rooney takes a look at the journey he took from redwood city to football's largest stage. when it comes to the postseason, julian edelman is in elite company. only jerry rice has more postseason receptions. the patriots drafted him in the seventh round, after stints playing quarterback for college of san mateo and kent state. but it all began at woodside high, near edelman's hometown of redwood city. and edelman's high school coach said none of his success has come as a surprise.steve nicolopolous says: "if you tell him he can't do this, he does it. if you tell him he's too slow, he becomes fast. if you tell him he's too s short to be a quarterback, he's gonna prove you wrong. and he did that, and he might have gone a different route than most people, but he was able to go out and accomplish what he set out to do, which is something that's very unique in this day and age."unique enough that edelman has become something of a teaching tool for the current generation of woodside wildcats.nicolopolous says: "we try to use him as a reference point for young
athletes to go ahead and aspire to do something. one of the things that we say to athletes here even in physical education is to set some goals for yourself, something that's attainable, and figure out a way to go ahead and accomplish those goals."and though he's a long way from woodside, edelman is still chasing those goals. and he has plenty of fans back home. nicolopolous says: "whatever he does, i know he's gonna do well, he's gonna give it 150 percent like he always does."in woodside california, kate rooney, kron 4 sports. and here's a another nice day once this

pg&e's claim the cpuc did not allow the utility to secure credit to keep them out of bankruptcy...((assm bill quirk)) "they're saying they went into bankruptcy not because of these liabilities but because the credit market closed to them because of this decision you made."

(á2 shotá)(á2 shotá) ( darya ) in this morning's hidden history, we are learning more about africans who were brought to america on one of the last two slave ships. ( james ) even though they are long gone, the slaves have had an impact on the world of art. dee griffin shares their story. now calm and serene.. the
savannah river was once a bustling, active route for importing and exporting goods in the river region.but it's proud past includes a perilous period that changed lives and later influenced a segment of art culture. the slave trade had been abolished in 1807 and really took effect in 1808. but, this was 50 years later in december 1858. (áávoáá) about 400 slaves were brought to georgia on a schooner called "the wanderer."small boats were hired to take slaves up the savannah river. 200 were taken through the dark, murky water of horseshoe creek and into edgefield county, south carolina.there are newspaper accounts talking about how intelligent they were, how quickly they learned when they came here and started working on different plantations. they were skilled laborers. (áávoáá)although ripped from their country with an uncertain future .. the slaves would not let go of a piece of their past through the art of face jugs. (áásotáá) they're very rudimentary. they're very crude. they're very small. it's believed that they practiced the voodoo
religion. so, they believed that they could talk to ancestors through the face vessels. (áávoáá)the jugs are small in stature.. typically 3 to 8 inches tall.. but they were large in meaning and the symbolism of home.since the ending of slavery.. potters have recreated face jugs crafted after old ones that are scarsely found around the country.while no one can put a true price on the service of slaves.. collectors are paying high dollar to get a piece of their work. they do fetch a large price. at auction they could go for anywhere 12 to 25-thousand dollars. (áávoáá) minister fred morton is the descendent of a slave brought over on the wanderer.he was stolen using a red piece of cloth which was a payment in africa. in africa you worked for cloth and you bartered and traded with it. so, they waved a piece of cloth which was almost sort of like an ad "come work." (áávoáá)after arriving in edgefield.. his name was changed to thomas
lanham.death stole his body.. but minister morton uses this cane to keep thomas lanham's memory alive. i went to the place where the wanderer landed and there was a piece of drift wood that was cedar. i brought it and fashioned this.(áávoáá)though traditionally used to assist in walking.. the cane helps bring stability and accuracy to the memory of those who were knocked off their foundation by slavery. i put the date 1858 that the i put the date 1858 that the ship sailed and these notches would represent important dates in his life. (áávoáá)dates long gone.. like the slaves who were brought through this water.. but their face jugs will forever serve as a glaring reminder of perserverance that will never be forgotten.it's a story of "look what god has brought me from." it's a story of just continue hang in there don't give up."

commissioner rodger goodell's pre-superbowl press conference.. i'd rather watch a rerun of the commish, but my ears perked up when he mentioned the raiders.. we're not the only ones left hanging while they figure out where they're going to play next season.. the entire nfl is in limbo.. so basically the next time mark davis calls he better have an answer.. ( darya )goodell says davis is still trying to work out a way to play one more season in oakland.. which would give him time to find a new barber.. and give the team time say goodbye to raider nation.. and the dead rats.. and savor that raw sewage smell at the coleseum. he also
had nothing definitive to say about the bad call that killed the saints superbowl dreams.. other than "sorry" and "we're continuing to look at ways to improve." a lot of times it's what you "don't" say that's telling.. like the roger the clown shirt that the saints coach was wearing under his outfit at his first press conference after losing the game.

( darya )they say you need to start worrying when your spouse starts to get in to shape.. so what does it mean if your dog gets a fitbit? is he gonna leave you? no, it just means he's a hipster.. or you're so concerend about your pet's health that you bought him a
bark-bit.. i didn't even know this was a thing. but with how crazy people are about counting their steps, you knew it wouldn't be long before fido-followed. the tracker costs about 70 bucks.. clip it on their collar and you can see if your kid really walked the dog.. you can even see if he's sleeping well! i know he's getting enough sleep cuz i hear him snoring when i roll over and try to grab the covers back.
