coach peter dubor go. >> is this a surprise? i don't know if you could call it that. but it is something the organization has never done. fire a coach midway through the season. he is out. officially fired today. and they haven't been terrible. they are 15-16-2. that's good for sixth place in the pacific. but, really they are streaky. got off to a really bad start. got hot. now they lost five in a row. and, one thing that really sticks out, they are the third worst in the league as far as goal differential. they have given up 25 more goals than their opposition. that's not a good thing. they have also been out-classed you think when you see them on the ice against the elite of the nhl. there's a huge disparity there in the way there. the sharks assisted bob bogner has been named interim coach of the san jose sharks. probably be able to celebrate jimmy g. winning the offensive

player of the week award more if there were not so many injuries piling up. did he ever have his career game in new orleans. some of the stats from that game, he wracked up 329 yards. he was 26 of 35. pretty dog gone good. if anyone doubted this guy is a franchise quarterback, be quiet. richburg is out for the rest of the year with a patella tendon injury. he will be replaced by garland. sherman important cog. they are doubtful against atlanta sunday. but injuries in football, like frank's favorite sandwich. they go together. >> that's true.

coach shanahan, not exactly in shock. >> hopefully, we are getting our guys back a little bit. when they are going, they are very tough to deal with. >> all right, i don't know about you, but, a lot of people i know not overly sentimental about the fact this sunday will be the last game the raiders play in oakland. to put it bluntly, the fans of oakland deserve a whole lot better than what the organization is giving them. they will be out the door after this sunday. and out on the road to finish this regular season which is really going poorly. they have lost three straight after winning three straight to put themselves in false playoff contention. it wasn't happening. get this. they have been outscored 116- 33. in their last three games. even when they complete a pass. it turns into disaster like it did against tennessee in a

route. derek carr, very mediocre. say what? he has thrown three interceptions. three touchdown passes. in the last three losses. always keeping a stiff upper lip. >> when you get on a roll, it is easy to say we got this. we are learning through that. we are hitting some adversity. if not the effort, it is not a lack of want to or anything like that. just little things. little things that add up to big things. i tell you this. major league baseball is back to give it up, unbelievable money particularly to pitchers. you know about last night, garrett cole's all time record for a pitcher and today, the dodgers signed blake treinen who a year ago was one of the best relievers ever. he had a 0.78 e.r.a. with the as . strained a shoaled her past season. wound up with a 4.91 e.r.a. lost his closers job but the dodges say what the heck.

one year, $10 million. what about tanner roark? a lifetime 500 pitcher. 33 years old. came over from the cincinnati as where he was 10-10 last season. good for them. good for them. check this out. tiger woods still relevant. the president's cup. he is the captain. and tiger, the shot of the day. like i said. tiger still relevant. that is a birdie putt. and, check this out. that's not an easy shot. and, there you go. that is the sporting life at this hour. >> all right, thanks mark. the news continues at 7:00 on ktvu plus. goodnight! >> see you later! ee you later! worst. renaissance. fair. ever. please let it go, sheldon.
6:59 pm
it was rife with historical inaccuracies. for example, the tavern girl serving flagons of mead. now, her costume was obviously germanic. but in 1487, the bavarian purity laws, or "reinheitsgebot," severely limited the availability of mead. at best, they would have had some sort of spiced wine. you're nitpicking. oh, really? well, here's another nit for you: the flagons would not have been made of polypropylene. renaissance fairs aren't about historical accuracy. they're about taking chubby girls who work at kinko's and lacing them up in corsets so tight their bosom jumps out and says, "howdy." bosoms would not have said "howdy" in the 15th century. if anything, they would've said, "huzzah." i don't care what the bosoms say, sheldon. i just want to be part of the conversation. hi, guys. looks like you've been to the renaissance fair... i'm hoping. renaissance fair? more of a medieval, slash, age of enlightenment, slash, any-excuse- to-wear-a-codpiece fair.
7:00 pm
okay, fine, whatever. you guys, this is my friend eric. hello. hi. hey. so, yeah, good to see you. yeah. yeah. it's good to see you, too. we should probably go. yeah. bye, guys. i like your hat. thanks. my mom made it. penny with a new guy, tres awkward. it wasn't awkward. it wasn't fun. besides, what's the big deal? we dated, we stopped dating, and now we're both moving on. koothrappali: by moving on, do you mean she's going out with other men and you spent the afternoon making 15th-century soap with wolowitz? that was not 15th-century soap. my god, those people need to learn you can't just put "ye olde" in front of anything you want and expect to get away with it. can we please just go in? my chain mail's stuck in my underwear.
