7:06 am
we went from 1 in1755 million to 1 in 292 million. but right out of the gate, when we made that change, we had a winner. $144 million jackpot winner was in tennessee just a month after the change was made. here we are now, 20 rolls into our next jackpot run, with $1$1 billion on thee line for wednesday night. and if players want to take the cash value, $806 million in cash. >> nothing but taxes. give me a break. >> gary, thank you. turning now to stunning news that broke overnight. word that actor sean penn interviewed the world's most wanted drug lord, el chapo, while he was on the run. the encounter released by "rolling stone" magazine. gabe gutierrez is at the prison where el chapo is once again behind bars. good morning.
7:07 am
it's the saga of el chapo. this is believed to be el chapo's first public interview in decades. sean penn claims he spoke to joaquin guzman months ago. >> reporter: the stunning interview with the world's most wanted drug lord posted online overnight by "rolling stone" magazine. guzman responding to questions submitted by sean penn and a mexican soap opera star. at the actors sayhey secretly met with the drug kingpin following his escape from a maximum prison last july. guzman admitted that drugs destroy but, unfortunately, where he grew up, there was no other way to survive. he says all he does is defend himself, nothing more. the videos were taken by his associates after an hours long
7:08 am
actors at an undisclosed location in mexico. penn said this photo was taken to authenticate the meeting. i supply moree heroin, meth methamphetamine than anyone in the world, el chapo was quoted as saying. this raised concern because the norths s authorities were in the process of trying to find el chapo. el chapo and his security team escaped, having been alerted by local residents. we reached out to sean penn, but he was unavailable for comment. it wasn't until friday morning that the mexican navy captured el chapo, following a bloody sinaloa.

7:11 am
ice bowl, when it was 15 degrees below zero. but we should be around zero at game time. that'll be the coldest game the seahawks ever played. if it's below zero at kickoff, it'll be the second coldest game the seahawks played. i made a mistake of pointing out an article that vaseline is the trick to staying warm. you have to show off the guns when you're here on the field. especially during playoff football. how do you do it? lather up with vaseline. it blocks the wind and keeps you warmer. i'm going to say this is a load of crud because it's freezing out here. although there are some hot packs everywhere. thanks to deb weber and our wardrobe department, i have hot packs all over. it's about keeping your core warm. as for the arms, yeah, not so much. >> dylan, how about those guns? >> can weee the guns again? tickets to the gun show.

7:15 am
beat cruz in iowa, they get him out of the way, and they think they'll have clear sailing in the conservative, anti-establishment lane. if cruz wins iowa, the two of them could be fighting it out all the way to the convention. the biggest take away from my interview, erica, is trump is absolutely focused on trying to engage cruz now. trying to defeat cruz now. it's why he's bringing up citizenship. he knocked him on immigration. knocked him on renewable fuel issues in iowa. he absolutely had an agenda to try to go after cruz in this interview. >> speaking of donald trump, he has been the most outspoken about bill clinton's past indiscretions, but even bernie sanders and other candidates. they're trying to knock off bill clinton from the trail for hillary. will it work? >> the way that the clinton campaign acted this week, yes. they seem reacted, they're muted. two weeks ago, they loved the
