(mark) welcome back to the kron 4 morning news... every morning at 7:45 we talk sports with gary radnich. and in case you missed it here's the gary's world rewind. (mark) good morning gary. it's a done deal. derek carr... he is rich. he just tweeted it's a done deal. five years, $125 million... $25 million a year, he's the richest nfl player of all time. gary says the timing was perfect. but we don't know how he plays in the playoffs yet. but it might have helped him. he was injured and didn't play when the raiders lost to the texans inn the first round, so we
9:46 am
didn't really see if he is playoff tested by not playing... but helping get the raiders for the first time in 13 seasons probably really helped his contract. gary says it's also good for their move to vegas so they can advertise the face of their team... and have their quarterback fat and happy. the funny thing here is there was this waiting game with matt stafford, they were waiting to see who was gong to sign the bigger contract. gary says people like reading about money. he says there was also a lot of quotes from aaron rodgers about how carr deserved this contract. every quarterback in the nfl is singing derek carr's praises this morning. 4th year out of fresno state and is now making 25-million
9:47 am
dollars a year. gary says you have to think of taxes... so it's a good thing they are moving to vegas. (mark) lets go to the ice. congratulations to brent burns, the first san jose shark to win the norris trophy. he won at the nhl awards last night, but he didn't shave or put his teeth in. gary says he looks like a real mountain man. and you know what happens when you look like a mountain man and go to disneyland? take
9:48 am
a listen...
9:49 am
have a good time everyday there, so you can't blame the kids for thinking that."> (mark) he went to disney
9:50 am
and everyone thought he was a pirate. i want to show you just so you have a memory... here is what brent used to look like. people look better with teeth. gary says he used to play a joke with guests on air, telling them they forgot we used to hear sutter the players saying they would switch the cups with their teeth in them because they all have dentures. hockey guys are all really though... and some of the nicest guys you will ever encounter. but i think they should at least put their teeth in if they are going to an awards show. (mark) while this awards show was going on for the n-h-l... they had an expansion draft going on for the las vegas team that's going to start playing, the golden knights. they get one guy from each team so they got david schlemko from the san jose sharks, he's a defenseman. so look for this team next season, their first game is october 6th against the dallas stars. gary says he thought it was funny watching the new vegas team unveil their new uniforms in 115 degree heat. i'd
9:51 am
rather be inside watching hockey than outside watching the raiders play. gary says they will need a dome on the stadium. he says it will be a nice test for the raiders and the nfl to see how the hockey team does. gary says people in vegas want tourists there gambling... not watching sports teams. he says the basketball used to be the only game in town... so we'll see how tourism does when people are there going to sports games instead of the casino. gary says people used to bet on the college games when unlv was the only game in town, even though it was illegal. gary says he doesn't think people will stop playing cards to go to a game, especially with how hot it gets there. i think it's going to work because vegas is being promoted as a family town and i think the raiders and golden knights will be family attractions for families visiting. gary says when he graduated college... vegas started hurting when atlantic city started becoming a thing, and that is when they started marketing towards families. (mark) the nba draft is tonight. the warriors don't have any picks but they

might trying buying something. gary says that's what they did last year... when they bough patrick mccaw from unlv.

(mark) and gary yesterday you asked about shark week... so here is a countdown clock, it is 31 days away until we see michal phelps race a shark. gary says he's a little old so he hopes he makes it to see it.

turning wastewater into drinking water. it's called "toilet to tap." orange county has had a plant that purifies wastewater and pumps it back into the groundwater supply for about a decade now. now the county is working to convince the public that the water is indeed clean and safe to drink. the orange county water district set up a stand in hollywood to give away free ice-cold bottled water. they had a little trouble giving away their product to some... but others had no problem trying it. ( mark ) orange county is expanding its operations... but the water district has no plans to actually bottle the water. it set up the stand to try to
