paper and ice, but on paper you have to say the sharks are looking like a true stanley cup contender. they've got to prove it on the ice, but look at this guy, eric carlson, two-time winner of the nhl top award for defensemen, he will join brett burns, mark edwards, one of the top lines in hockey, great defense right there. carlson has been the highest scoring defensemen in the league since he came in 2009. in his prime, 28 years old, the one thing you have to think about, one year left on his contract. the price to get him was steep from ottawa, they gave up first round picks in 2019 or 20. this kit is a little stunned by the trade, he's got some getting used to with big-time sports and getting traded. >> i can start looking ahead
and moving forward a bit but as of right now, it's really emotional and said. even though you've heard a lot of things about what could be possible, i think you can't really prepare, so it's crazy. >> you feel for the guy, a lot of emotion there, this is what the team sent to him as a farewell, right there. i've got a feeling, spend a little time in california, be okay. the shock of big-time sports, getting treated. meantime, strange but true, the a's went to the eighth inning trailing, he just kind of assume they will pull this thing out against one of the worst teams in baseball? baltimore, kids having fun back there, he accidentally hit mom, getting all excited, she retaliates, take it easy mom, it's just a game. second inning, scout down 2-0,
stephen going the other way, 24th of the year, and brent anderson has a little bit of a shaky start, giving up a couple of runs, going against the body here, throw gets away, that's an error, allowing another run to come in, 3-1, and bob is not liking that on the bench, look at this guy. every night, thought he had himself a double, bad idea. best arm in the a's outfield since tony orman, looking good, trailing force, they will. -- pull it out, one big hit after another, you can't do that every time, orioles get out of the inning, insurance at the bottom half, they wind up winning at 5-3, to end the a's six-game streak, and a chance to gain on the yankees who are idle. meantime, thursday night football, a matchup of teams the 49ers have beaten the super bowl, and should have beaten in the super bowl.
the baltimore ravens, and of course, the cincinnati bengals, a team that have handled twice, the red rifle, andy dalton going to work up 7-0, 32 yards, aj green who has three touchdowns tonight. the bengals build up a 21-0 lead, before, here comes baltimore, joey trying to get his act together, he did throw a couple of interceptions, but he's got a touchdown there, two- point conversion, within five, 28-23. later, after a cincinnati field goal late, rolling out of the pocket, doesn't sense pressure from behind, he gets nailed by shawn williams, cough up the ball and the game. 34-23. cincinnati is 2-0, and john harbaugh's team is 1-1. enough to call it good, by the cincinnati bengals. just last weekend, they visited a nursing home near cincinnati, and they got 95-year-old irma
out on the floor, have a look at this. >> oh yeah, come on everybody, make some noise. >> [ cheering ] >> [ music playing ] >> you got to love that, several bengals on hand in courting the quarterback, gray kirkpatrick, who had a great game tonight, get down, they called it a nursing home dance battle. 95-year-old irma liking every bit of it. meanwhile, we have some other stuff to talk about, off the mainstream sports venue, remember this guy? by the name of gilbert arenas warrior fans? he says he's been sitting on the couch since he retired from basketball, challenged by nick young to a three-point shooting contest, $100,000 on the line, he brought his cash money, laid
it out, he waited -- wade it, and waited for shaggy tea to show so he started firing away, he had 95 out of 100 three- point shots. guess what? yeah. much to your surprise, swag ep never showed up. >> 95 out of 100? >> three points two. -- three pointers, too. that is sporting, how did you like irma, 95 years old? >> [ laughter ] more irma. >> there you go. 11:00, guys, time for more news. thank you. coming up next 11:00. despite hurricane florence moves ever closer to the carolina coast, landfall now just a few hours away. the 11:00 news on ktvu f0x2 starts now. hurricane florence is a huge
