this is like the biggest trade -- you got four players, right? >> yeah. adrian gonzalez and josh beckett. we were really happy. nick is great and then crawford, of course, is hurt, so we're looking forward to seeing him next season. but we're excited because it's made our team better. to go along with matt kemp, our superstar, and clayton kershaw who we feel is the best pitcher in all of baseball. so, we're excited about our team not only trying to make the playoffs this year because the giants, of course, we're in a battle with them. but also next season we feel we're going to be really good. >> jay: 'cause i'm from boston, and you have a hate-hate relationship with boston. >> yeah. >> jay: it goes back. goes back. [ talking over each other ] you have to keep your head down when you come into town now. >> well, they probably love me now. >> jay: i want to show you this picture. this picture made me laugh. look at this picture. now, look at tommy lasorda. sound asleep. [ laughter ] i love this picture! >> well, you know, tommy -- i had to give credit to tommy.
first of all, tommy can go to sleep any time he wants to because he's a legend. >> jay: yeah. >> but when i first got to l.a., the lakers took me to see tommy lasorda. and he gave me a pep talk on dodgers, l.a. and winning. and so i told tommy, and i promised him that i would go out and help the lakers win championships. and we were able to do that. so tommy, you can sleep any time you want to. >> jay: except during this show. >> of course. >> jay: now, tell me about dwight howard. tell me how that's going to be. >> i think it's going to be great for the lakers. [ cheers and applause ] the lakers have been known for dominant big men all the way back. mikan, chamberlain, kareem, shaq and now here comes dwight howard. i think that he's going to be great for the laker organization, for laker nation, and great for kobe. and now, this will probably put two or three years on kobe's career. and steve nash, same thing. [ cheers and applause ]
>> jay: okay. very good, very good. >> and i think that dwight, his smile and his personality will take l.a. by storm. and the young man can really play. this is going to be a fantastic season. but, jay, you know, we still got -- the miami heat is still the team to beat. [ cheers and applause ] you can't go against the world champions. they're still the team to beat. >> jay: and you're a a grandfather now, right? >> yes, i got two grandkids. and we just had them a week ago at the house. and it's real cool when you can have them for two days, then you can call your son up and say, "come get 'em." [ laughter ] >> jay: show that picture. we got a picture right here. aw, look at that. >> yeah, you know. feeding them. but when they poop, jay, whew! [ light laughter ] whew! adam, you ever change a diaper, man? >> adam: oh, no. [ laughter ] but all poop smells bad, man. and a little baby makes the nastiest smelling -- >> it's amazing.
but i'm having fun with both of them. >> jay: now, tell us about this magic card. this is really great. tell people about this. >> what we're trying to do is the unbanked -- those who are poor who can't get a credit card. >> jay: right. >> we're trying to help them out. and give them a sense of now that they can have a debit card that can work as a credit card to go and take care of their bills or go out to dinner or something. so, i created the magic card for those who are unbanked and who can never -- or never thought they would ever have a credit card. >> jay: yeah. >> so, not high fees and all that. you know. [ applause ] just trying to help them out. >> jay: no, i think that's terrific. >> make their life easier. >> jay: no, i think that's really wonderful. now, when we come back, there's going to be a little challenge? >> adam: oh man, i'm scared. >> jay: yeah? [ light laughter ] wait a minute. i thought you were talking pretty tough before. >> adam: i know, but now i'm scared. but now i'm scared. >> jay's going to be your coach. >> jay: yeah, i'll be your coach. >> adam: oh, great. >> jay: now you're really

and that some people had symptom improvement as early as 1 to 2 weeks. i'm glad i talked to her. i wish i'd done it sooner. now i feel more in control of my depression. [ female announcer ] abilify is not for everyone. call your doctor if your depression worsens or you have unusual changes in behavior, or thoughts of suicide. antidepressants can increase these in children, teens, and young adults. elderly dementia patients taking abilify have an increased risk of death or stroke. call your doctor if you have high fever, stiff muscles, and confusion to address a possible life-threatening condition. or if you have uncontrollable muscle movements, as these could become permanent. high blood sugar has been reported with abilify and medicines like it and in extreme cases can lead to coma or death. other risks include increased cholesterol, weight gain, decreases in white blood cells, which can be serious, dizziness on standing, seizures, trouble swallowing, and impaired judgment or motor skills. depression was always hanging over me. then my doctor added abilify to my antidepressant. now i feel better.

my fellow americans, i stand before you tonight as a proud democrat. a proud latino, and a proud citizen of these united states. america is the land of opportunity, and my journey thus far has taken me all over this great country -- except arizona, they don't let me in there. there's actually a sign outside the state that says "you must be this white to get in." [ laughter ] but tonight, i want to tell you the story of my grandmother, victoria. she was a strong, proud, latina woman who could barely speak a word of english, kind of like the woman from "modern family," sofia vergara. along with my mother, victoria raised me and my twin brother, joaquin. it's true, i have a twin brother. and in case you're wondering, yes, sometimes we totally switch lives for a day just so screw with people. in fact, i may not even be the real julian right now. perhaps i'm joaquin, and real julian is backstage. i'm just kidding, or am i? i am. is he, though? yeah. now, like you, i watched the republican convention last week. and i saw paul ryan and clint eastwood.
one, a crazy, delusional man who rambled on and on without making any sense. the other one, clint eastwood. but who didn't love "gran torino?" but i want to speak briefly about mitt romney. now don't get me wrong, i think mitt is a good guy. but last week in tampa, i ran into mitt, and he looked me square in the eyes, and he told me "what are you doing here, manuel? you're supposed to be in martha's vineyard cleaning out the pool before ann and the kids get home." to which i replied "my name is not manuel, i am julian castro, mayor of san antonio. to which he replied "no speakie espanol. pool, clean." classic mitt. now before i go, one final note. i've seen that a lot of people out there on twitter are
claiming that i look like a latino jimmy fallon. [ laughter ] and i must say i am truly honored. he is a sexy man, with a sexy, sexy face. how's that sexy face? in conclusion, good night, and god bless america.

[ cheers and applause ] oh, fantastic. you guys, here's some political news, first lady michelle obama is receiving praise for the speech she gave last night at the democratic national convention. everyone was impressed, even fox news called it "not the worst." that's very nice of them. speaking of the dnc, earlier in the night actor kal penn told viewers to use the twitter hash tag "sexy face" when talking about his speech. which got weird when bill clinton was like [ as clinton ] "there goes the first line of my speech."
actually, president obama's speech at the dnc has been moved inside to the time warner arena, due to weather concerns. you can tell it's time warner, cause obama will give the speech two weeks from friday, between the hours of 12 and 4.

see them on amazon or check them out at your local library. they are real. all right, let's see what's on my "do not read list." here we go, this first one is a romance novel. it's called "the librarian's secret wish," by carol gray. i don't think it's much of a secret, we can all see she wants to get with this dude right there. but here's my favorite part, what's this little child doing down here? [ laughter ] what's he doing? >> steve: is that her secret wish? >> jimmy: i don't know what's going on? let's see if the back cover can clear things up here. it says "she dreamed of finding a hero like those she'd read about. so when prim librarian claire cooper encountered nate callahan, she nearly swooned. the detective was not only devastatingly handsome, he was heroically searching for a missing orphan, a little boy she loved, too. maybe if they stopped hitting on each other they'd see that he's right here.
look at the orphan, he's there under the table! there's your missing orphan. he's having a great time in the library, this orphan. >> steve: awful. >> jimmy: next up is a cookbook. you can never have too many of those. this is a "salute to chocolate." this looks like a normal salute to chocolate. you've got your chocolate cake right there, you've got your chocolate eclair there. you've got your crazy tinfoil man with chocolate eyeballs. this doesn't look like a salute, this looks like a nightmare. this is crazy. >> steve: a nightmare? >> jimmy: yeah. you ever have a nightmare like that? >> steve: yeah, chocolate nightmare? >> jimmy: chocolate tinfoil dude coming at you? look at that dude, he's crazy. >> steve: fondue. fon-don't. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: this next one is a children's book, here. oh, this is great. this one's called "all about pockets." finally, someone's written a book that tells kids the truth about pockets. like they are attached to your clothes, and they hold things,
and that's all you really need to know about pockets. this should be called, "your mom's weird, and you're stuck with her so i guess you have to get into pockets, kid." let's take a look inside, here. it says -- oh, this is pretty good. everyone has carried something in a pocket that really didn't belong in one, and loves to tell about it. really? i've never done that. >> steve: i've never done that. >> jimmy: i have never gone up to a friend and said "man, i've got to tell you this crazy story, man! i was carrying something in my pocket that didn't belong in there -- wait, why are you running away?" believe it or not, it even gets weirder. look at this down here, she says, "we all whisper, i have something in my pocket, and you can't guess it." thanks, mom. >> steve: that's just plain wrong. >> jimmy: i'm not going to put
this in a pocket. >> steve: no, i would not put that in a pocket. >> jimmy: i'm going to put it in a recycling bin. >> steve: in le garbage. we have one more here children's book here. this is called "let's hug." [ laughter ] how is he supposed to hug? he has two stubby arms coming out of his head. it's not even -- let's see who wrote this here, charles faraone, phillip faraone and paul planet. that's right, it took three guys to write this book. phillip and charles have the last name, so they're probably brothers. >> steve: got it, they probably knew each other. >> jimmy: they probably come up with the idea and said "well, i don't know if we have the firepower to pull 'let's hug' off. we need a third." >> steve: who we gonna get, though? >> jimmy: who we gonna get? wait, i know! we should ask our friend with the fakest name in the world. >> steve: who? who could that be? greg universe? >> jimmy: no, paul planet. right there. that's how he is. that's all i have for this edition of the "do not read list."
