6:55 pm
los angeles. you can't count on atlanta to beat new orleans. that's probably a long shot, so they've got to win. the thumb apparently has improved substantially in the last couple of weeks. you just cannot put a rookie trey lance into this position, unless you absolutely have to just not enough experience with the season on the line, jimmy g. i predict will be your starting quarterback coach. shanahan definitely knows who he's going to put in there. no i'm not deciding sunday morning would have any practice left. i know where jimmy's at today in or trays out and our teams out and i feel pretty good about where we're at. so i'm excited to get to sunday really glad i have no press conferences after today, so once. once i survived this, i'm done talking about it. comes with the job, my friend. meantime with regard to the golden state warriors, you know there are actually other stories besides clay thompson's return on sunday that we can talk about . in fact, it's one of the many

feel good stories regarding this team right now, despite the fact they last a couple in a row. how about the urgency of gp two? gary payton, the second barely made the roster out of training camp remember, but immediately proved his value. young glove right place right time all the time playing great defense and last night well, he had his salary guaranteed at about $1.9 million, heard the news after the game from our reporter of all people. was there a moment or time that you felt safe, physical negative, not a moment, or thomas was safe. um i guess i don't know if i still do, but i guess coach coach card what he said so and just threw it and excited to be here and continue to help this team win right now. yeah, thanks for that guys. were

good for something every now and then. right now, some people you're just happy when they get the big paycheck and gary payton . great guy moving on, you know , last night in that last in the world liens? no steph curry. no draymond green, so opportunity knocks and in particular for young jonathan commingle. and he absolutely barges through that door and takes advantage of the opportunity and a started rolling had 13 points but really more to the story than that just pure energy and presence. and overall for him in the many opportunities. he's had just a willingness to learn things that can't be topped this way. i feel like this disgrace situation and me even when i don't play there is something i learned even when i'm doing something wrong. always got drummond andree, steve! anybody that's way older than me or more experience than me. coming up to me and tell me that i need to do this to get better. i'll save of options.
6:58 pm

7:00 pm
what about the day you met me? i stand by my statement. well, thank you guys so much for the clothes and the shoes, the plane tickets. you've been so generous. well, it's important that all of our friends get to share this moment with us. and then for years to come, you can tell others you had a front-row seat to history. although, technically, i think your seats are in the second row. do you want to go back to the apartment and see me try on my dress? shouldn't i see it for the first time at the nobel ceremony? it's not a wedding. okay. well, give me a minute to think of another reason i don't want to see it. how about this-- you can practice your acceptance speech while i try on the dress. ah, great. you can help me whittle it down to 90 minutes. was amy suspicious when they had to let your dress out? no. she was so happy, she didn't even question it. someone's gonna figure it out. why don't we just tell people? no, it's too early. i haven't even wrapped my head around it. i have. my head is wrapped. yeah, well... if something else had been wrapped, we wouldn't be in this situation. excuse me, but if i recall, you're the one who went out drinking with sheldon,
