It looks as if most of the range gonna cut here late Saturday night early Sunday morning to be out here by maybe 7 raid Sunday morning which is is good news. We'll get some rain and some cooler temperatures and right now it looks like it's going to be around 59 or sixty with partly cloudy skies on Christmas Day is you know that can change but -- has of showers today tomorrow and optically. On Sunday and I'm stewed in -- Tommy Tucker here's an update on our -- of Hugo project opinion poll. Will the saints beat the Panthers and with the NFC south this weekend 39% saying know. And 61% say yes give us your opinion by going to WW real dot com. That song of the greatest love by will be used in as the song that. It it it touched me at a point in my life what we'll talk about this later in the show. I was asked to to preview -- to write a review of Rick Springfield movie an affair of the heart. And in viewing a movie in and taking notes and in writing the blog. It occurred to me that. Rick Springfield music and I would not -- focus of Rick Springfield it would sort of other people but Rick Springfield music has really touched a lot of people and helped a lot of people through very difficult times. And this is just a reminder that. There're there are singers there or are songs that that speak to us and and touch us in tough times in our lines can you think of a song that touched you and maybe help you get through. A tough time we'll talk about a little bit later in the show also and its duplicates is still turning -- website to -- W dot com if electric Springfield if you like. Music you can read it and sharing with others were also -- talking about the saints they're taken on the Panthers in. In Carolina this Sunday. It's a new kick off and if the saints continue with the pattern that they've had in the last couple of weeks they're gonna win and they're going to be very very impressive. I've got a text from people they will win the division yes they're gonna win the saints will win the NFC this weekend. I hope they do but it it's no guarantee. However with the way the saints have been playing I would think they're gonna come back and beat Carolina again. As you know it's difficult to beat a team two times in a row especially just one week apart it. I guess it was last year the year before the saints played the falcons a couple of weeks apart that this is the closest they've played the the same opponent. In a long time amber may be in the history that the franchise and Carolina is a very good team they're playing for a lot as well. Most of the national. Most of the national stories that I've read. Favor. V the Panthers into the Panthers are gonna win and I believe the Panthers are three and half point favorite. Again I really like the saints win. When Sean Payton and Drew Brees and their backs are really gets doubled up at the backs and we ended mathematically they're still it and if they lose this game. But they have so much to to plea for the so much is at stake at this game winning the NFC south. I'm getting a first round bye and being never to -- It looks as if the the playoffs could go through Seattle got a -- a moment ago from some breeze and that's really. A scary thing and especially when you think about how the saints have played recently in Seattle the -- can be scary but I said after we lost to Seattle. And once again the saints. Did not silenced the critics. Who say they can't play on the road especially if the weather's bad. Or if it's very cold and -- I said. What great justice it would be if the saints had a chance to go back to Seattle. And beat Seattle. In Seattle. Totally silencing. The critics. And then go on to win the Super Bowl in New Jersey that already talking about contingency plans for snow. For the Super Bowl and -- released this this this Super Bowl next year. -- could be totally marred by -- winter and again I don't understand the wisdom of holding the Super Bowl in New Jersey but that'll be that topic love. We'll talk about -- -- to close at the Super Bowl here's a text the saints win this weekend Santa Claus really does live. Here is another text I tried to buy American but says since the share of shut down my buddies pot crop. I have to buy imported. That's a shame. It's really a shame when you can't buy local pot it's a shame when you just have to. -- you have to get the important stuff from another state or from another country. Here's a text about songs shine like collective soul helped me. When highways was getting sober. What we're gonna play some of these songs as -- as we talk about this to be thinking about a song. That helped you through a difficult time. A music usually touches and you know Rick Springfield a pop rock artist mainly popular from the the eighties but still popular today. It in previewing as this movie and it writing a review about it. I really didn't expect his music you have and as such showed a personal touch on the hearts of some people. And it did and it was just a reminder of how music does. Touches and in many ways it's the soundtrack of our allies.

I I love the saints especially when their backs are against the wall and again mathematically that well they're back targets doubled as a victory. They they're not out of the playoffs if they lose and and remember. Carolina's gonna have a lot of motivation. They're going to want to do with the saints who wanted to if we did if they did to. It's what we did it and and that is there going to be at home they're gonna wanna avenge that somewhat embarrassing loss the end of their eight game winning streak. Sunday. And I can Drew Brees be protected. Buying among others a rookie on the offensive line. And -- we have a new place kicker I don't think that could be any more inconsistent than it has been up to now -- -- -- the best but it against the voices -- -- EP. Sometimes you just into doubting yourself in situations and he'll go on in and be a good kicker somewhere else in the same way that you know sometimes players go on to other teams and once they get that. Once they get that break and they they breakaway from the that the routine -- the circumstances in the surroundings that made them question themselves. They can go on and become good players and I think this is another example of puff football as a metaphor for life. We can think about times in our lives when. We changed. Circumstances we changed surroundings and and we did better I'd think about Reggie Bush is another recent example of that. So we're talking about the saints and Carolina. I expected to win of course will be talking about that Monday morning -- -- BWL. -- in four Tommy Tucker we've also been talking about buying American. And ABC report says that the average American spent about 700 dollars on holiday gifts this year but totals 465. Billion dollars. If all of that money -- entirely to US made products that would create four point six million jobs. So in a lot of ways. The job market is not something that is directly controlled by any president it's controlled by a lot of things and this relationship with the global economy has been building for a fair very long time this has been building. I guess there. You could take for a very long time but especially since the eighties and nineties that this is. This is something it was quite obvious in and we were gonna start having less manufacturing in America and our economy weighs more based on hospitality. And technology. Here's attacks that reads by American. What do we make -- something made in America by Americans and I'll buy it. The question is. If you had a choice you might buy American but would you buy American if it cost more. As Americans. Don't we want the best product at the lowest possible price of a blinking -- right up I've decorated my workplace for the pointing senate and right on the back. It's has made in China. Now. Guess I -- of a problem with that it's states it's part of the the world that we live -- but. Ultimately it's American greed. Did his help and American greed at at every level that is contributed to jobs going overseas if the company can make something for less overseas. Based on. The motivation of capitalism of the foundation of capitalism. Then the company's going to produce the best product they -- at the lowest possible price and that has led to jobs. Being overseas.

Just in time for Christmas. Which leaders call 260 wins 2609467. And the -- caller wins from -- WL I am FM and dot com. It's 750 here's another WWL traffic update with Cheryl Robinson. It's a Friday morning going into the weekend before Christmas. We've got to warm weather today but it's gonna be cooler by Sunday and some rain. In between now and then they subject's about buying American here's text that reflects what a couple of Texas and that is that that Apple's new Mac Pro. Is made an assembled in Austin, Texas so it's a purely American here's another text by American local items available at forty girl. Courts in lakeside men's belts. And Johnston exceed us so if you look for the items this -- says you can find it. But the question is do we go out of our way to buy American and I I have to be honest and tell you that I don't. -- -- -- you what I can find is the best product at the lowest possible price tonight I'm really not cognizant of of of where the product was made. And I think a lot of Americans have that same attitude released and being honest about it. Maybe we should all be a little more. Aware of the products and we're we're we're getting products from. And it takes a moment ago from somebody who say it will not everybody can afford to to pay more for American product. And isn't really that one of the keys why is -- always more for an American product. You know something's in America are better and I remember ended the seventies with the the first and Arab oil crisis. So much focus was on American made cars in. That the Japanese really did start to take over the market then now the competition from the Japanese have really started in the seventies in the car market with. More if you fuel efficient cars. And cars that. And words were lasting longer than American cars actually led to the production of better American cars. So that competition has really helped change the the American all auto market. But it's it's not always easy to find just clearly under American products so people buy and this is all part of American greet people by the best product at the lowest. Possible price and that's the way we are in America. You know but I -- -- mentioned something about a local product. I eat about. Two to. Three oranges every day guy who I love I love oranges that it's if they're good for. I have found -- Louisiana oranges. Rouse is to be just and believe that that decisive capital. Connect to the size of grapefruit. And -- the if you haven't gone out of -- way to put Luigi and oranges they are the juiciest -- the sweetest they are the best.

I think called to do is way back in with them negotiate this week. And you'd be out in Atlanta and now that the airline -- in the division. -- glad you called the show I do agree with fewer mistakes are always tough after a loss I would not wanna face the saints after a loss. But remember Carolinas at home and they've got a lot to play for and they are a very talented team and they've proven it this year. So we'll continue this conversation also will be talking about whether or not pets are the perfect Christmas gift. Have you ever given or gotten a -- For Christmas.
