6:13 am
scouts. they were challenged to sell 600 boxes of cookies each. their reward a slumber party on the 50-yard line at levi's stadium in may. 1200 fulfilled their end of the bargain. but the 49ers canceled the event in favor of a more lucrative concert. >> we are just, like, all disappointed and we felt really bad. >> it kind of made me a little sad. >> i was sad but now i'm really happy that they have it on again. >> i think the 9ers are, too. they came through. they had a bit of a mea culpa and they came good on the sleepover moving the date a week later and they will pay for it. nice move by the 9ers especially during super bowl week. some members of the panthers and the broncos are coming back to the bay area stomping grounds for the super bowl. so this week we have two cool schools with team connections. de la salle in concord and miramonte in orinda. >> reporter: famous athletes lined this wall at miramonte high including the carolina panthers quarterback coach ken dorsey. >> i tell as many kids, you

6:20 am
>> i'm definitely not a very big football fan only because i'm sort of sports illiterate. i grew up playing guitar in my basement and so sports were, like, just not my -- it's kinds of my brother's thing and i was kind of the musician guy. >> matt lives in bernal heights and often sings about san francisco. in spite of the showers last night he rocked the stage and the crowds. one very talented family gracing the city stage, that's tonight. you can catch the band perry at 7:30 at sue bierman park. tomorrow night one republic playing. on saturday the eve of the super bowl it's alicia keys. best part, every concert is free. the super bowl is being touted as a huge benefit for bay area businesses. but that isn't the case for all of them. we'll have more on the downside of the celebrations. >> and i'm dennis o'donnell. coming up, joe montana and wife jennifer weigh in on head injuries and the one that led to joe's retirement. plus, steph curry might be looking for a presidential pardon after what he did to the

to have fun, but you're here as a survivor of prostate cancer here to raise awareness about it. >> i found out at a screening at the hall of fame really about psa, prostate specifi anitgen. it is a test for prostate cancer and the guy gave me a lot of statistics i never heard before that one in five black men would be diagnosed with prostate cancer. one in 7 for all men. i had never heard of prostate cancer. one in eight women will get breast cancer in their lifetimes. more men will get prostate cancer than women breast cancer but i didn't know anything about it. i was scared, got back, called my primary care doctor. we had a conversation about it. i had a biopsy and i had it. i was in the right place at the right time but totally by coincidence and our campaign is to make sure that men are aware and they don't find out like i
6:51 am
did by luck. >> what's the best thing to do? >> know their family history. you know, know their own personal risk. it ran in my family. had no idea. my grandfather died of it. never had a conversation with anyone in my family about it. so that's really it. know your personal history. if it runs in the family have a conversation with your doctor as early as possible. 35, 40, if it doesn't run in your family you can probably wait until your 50s but prostate cancer is curable if caught early. if detected early you can beat it. >> let's talk about an illness that's going around, concussion, kenny stabler. you never played with the snake. you had jim plunkett as a quarterback. he is certainly part of the family. he died of colon cancer and had cte. >> i have donated my brain too so if i go they are going to do the same thing for me to see if i have it and we're not really sure exactly what to do to prevent it. you know, we know how it happens now.
6:52 am
we know how many guys are likely to have it. there's a huge effort to try to figure out what to do if you do have it. and even if you have a concussion, what do you do? the real danger is staying in the game once you have a concussion. that second hit while you're con cussed, that's the real danger. >> a lot of talks about the raiders' future in the bay area. what are your thoughts? >> i do know that mark davis wants to be here. he loves oakland and i have had several conversations with him about it. he doesn't want to leave here but he -- he believes that the raider fans deserve a great venue a great stadium to play the game and if he has to leave, i'm sure he will consider that. >> okay. we are going to put you on the line here. we got panthers, we got broncos. who do you like. well, after playing 14 years in the afc -- [ laughter ] >> -- and -- >> going for it? >> i got to go for the broncos. >> love it! >> who has broncos sweats on right now? >> no one. [ laughter ] >> my coanchor. showing her true color. >> it's cold out here!
6:53 am
>> that's true. >> wouldn't you love to see peyton manning go out with a ring. i would. i would. i mean, he has had a fantastic career. he is a future hall of famer for sure. and believe it or not, i think cam newton is on his way to having a hall of fame career. >> he is a monster on the field. thank you so much for joining us this morning. >> thank you for having me. >> what a pleasure to have you, sir. take care. enjoy the game. >> that high five kind of hurt!
