jogging out to his position at shortstop and playing baseball for the team he dreamed about playing for as a kid. but this time was different. this time was the last. as the sold-out star-studded crowd at yankee stadium chanted his name, jeter soaked it in briefly, then got back to business. >> runner goes. deep to left field. still back. still back. it's off the wall. >> double off the left field wall in his first at-bat. >> derek jeter with a double. that young man has the flare for the dramatic. >> reporter: later crossing home plate himself. jeter was drafted by the yankees in 1992, a scrawny teenager from kalamazoo, michigan. >> here is the kid, derek jeter, hunting for his first major league hit. >> by '95, he was called up to

police headquarters and then sped off. >> if he was seen, we need that information. if his demeanor, attitude, his personality was different, we need to know that. >> reporter: law enforcement investigated an on-campus sexual assault allegation against matthew in october 2002 when he was a student at liberty university in nearby lynchburg. the district attorney says no charges were filed. now his lawyers prepare their case against him for graham's disappearance, a community refuses to give up. jesse matthew's attorney also spoke yesterday. he said that matthew -- that his family is relieved that he was found safe. matt? >> craig melvin on the story in virginia. craig, thank you very much. new fallout on the ray rice scandal. a claim that the nfl security chief was the person in roger goodell's office who was sent a

of these with a camera on board. now six companies have been given permission to use this, a drone with a camera on board. while it makes a little bit of noise here, what the companies say is that it's really opening up a visual window and, obviously, they believe, many more opportunities for the uses of these aerial drones. the commercial use, which has mot been allowed until now. and they say getting this opportunity to open this window and get visuals like this, something that just couldn't be done without a drone. in the blockbuster movie "skyfall" those amazing action shots were possible because the film was shot overseas with a drone like this. now, for the first time in this country, the faa says six american production companies can begin using unmanned aircraft. >> i'm sorry. i'm looking at it. i'm almost drawn to it. >> reporter: aerial mob in san

on an evolutionary path. some people call it disruptive technology. it will, in fact, make the world a better place. >> reporter: so if you think, wait a second, i've seen these drones flying around real estating as and other locations, it's actually been illegal. and the faa is out, actually enforcing those rules. but the belief here is that this is a baby step, the very first step to the introduction of commercial drones like this in our country. hoda? >> kerry. let's get a check of the weather now from mr. roker. >> announcer: "today's" sunday night football weather is brought to you by nfl mobile. exclusively from verizon. >> all right. here comes our drone.

loved that about him, always smells good, always -- but in our bathroom, he, every single morning i come in and he sees -- what the man has done with six towels and a wash cloth, can't even imagine. and for years it made me crazy until i all of a sudden started going, you know what, it means i still have him. he's still here. i have him. and there is going to come a day when i walk in and the towels are perfect that i don't have him. that's the way i feel about my kids, shoes and -- when cody is home, i used to be so mad, but i have him, he's home. cassidy as bad as you are, hoda, you are awful, terrible, nobody -- i would put my daughter up against anybody in the world as the messiest human being you've ever met. but i miss her messy. so it is all -- >> that's a great lesson. that really is. >> you know what i thought to myself? back to when i remember, because

we're back with more of "today" on this try day friday. it is time for the other view. and the answers to your questions when it comes to, hey, your relationships and dating. yes. we see you. >> here to help you get over those bumps in your love life is relationship expert and host of iheart radio's love life with matthew hussey. >> how many times do we have to say it? >> our first question from alesha bars. she asks, my boyfriend and i have been together for three years and have been happy. over the last eight months i feel like a roommate and friend are more than a matthew husbandcy matthew husbandcy matthew hussy fix it? >> this is hard. i can see that look like it is a
hurtful subject to not be attracted to someone anymore and for them to feel it. here is the problem be with this matthew hussy uple of that hap do bring attraction back. one of them is seeing other people finding your partner hot. that helps. hard to engineer, but it helps. >> should you hire some people to do that? >> maybe. the second thing is losing them. very often absence or losing them altogether makes you realize that. the third thing is them being a little less predictable. i was once told attraction is about keeping someone slightly off balance. and sometimes in relationships we feel too stable the whole time. something needs to be shaken up, whether -- i know -- i've had my attraction with someone change just when a piece of music came on and they started dancing. >> that happened to hoda when she saw you do that weird thing up there? >> the shoulders. >> it went in reverse. >> it went in reverse. >> that's the key. it is hard for her to engineer that. it really is. but she can -- here's what i would say to her, don't come at
him with all the things he can do from a low point where you say i'm not attracted to you anymore, but here is how i can get attracted to you. men are fragile. find a moment where you're in a beautiful moment, and then start talking to them about what you tv. >> she once was. >> why do you find frank attractive? >> we gave up on that so many years ago. >> that's not true, is it? >> no, it isn't true. >> you play. >> you play and you laugh and you -- keep reminding yourself of what you fell in love with initially. it is still there. you remind yourself. >> that's very true. but also i think it helps to show the person the things that they were attracted to in the first place as well because -- >> i can't put it on anymore. >> let's get to the next question. this is lauren, she's from long island. and she's got a question for us. lauren? >> hi. i'm 37 years old and i'm looking for someone to settle down with and hopefully marry one day.
i'm on two different online dating sites. i also tried singles events but nothing is working. i put on my online profile a lot of qualities i'm looking for in a future guy. what other things should i try to get a guy to notice my profile? >> it was lauren, right? >> yes. >> hi, lauren. look, i'm saying this not just to you, but to everybody, no one cares what we want. they only care what they want. if you think about a dating profile, it is an advertisement if anything. if you saw a billboard for a company and they said, we want your money, so spend it with us, it wouldn't work. what they do is they cater to our needs. they figure out what we want and they tell us that they have it. i want to see from you, what is that movie you have an opinion on that is funny that everybody loves and you hate, your opinion is funny about that. stupid stuff. >> get their attention. >> get their attention. do you like going to football games but you also like a girlie day at the spa?
we see, she's someone who can have fun with me in something that is masculine, but can also be a real feminine woman as well. and also, when you said -- when you said about wanting to be married, that's fine, but in the dating profile, i think it is really important that people don't state that in that way. because the problem is, there is a guy, i'm thinking, i'm going to go on one date with you, if you like me, now i'm getting married to you. instead, i would like to get married at some point, but it has to be the right guy and i'm willing to wait. >> good advice. if you want to submit a question for matthew, go to klgandhoda.com and hit that connect button. how bad is it to stifle a sneeze? >> we'll help you sniff out some bad habits coming up. >> and which of us has the nose for fine wine. what a goofy guy. how do you eat your eggo? you can start with the syrup all on top, maybe not apple chunks and cinnamon and honey if you got bring on the chocolate spread

changes to your diet. for a prior dvt i took warfarin, which required routine blood testing and dietary restrictions. not this time. while i was taking xarelto®, i still had to stop racing, but i didn't have to deal with that blood monitoring routine. >>don't stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is proven to reduce the risk of dvt and pe, with no regular blood monitoring and
no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for me. ask your doctor about xarelto® today. you all know how much hoda and i love a little sip of wine once in a while. how well do we know wine? >> we're about to have a wine tasteoff, a little competition where we put our taste buds to the test to see if we can match up the wine with its price tag. >> our good friend, the executive wine editor at food and wine magazine, ray aisle. hey, ray. >> hello to you guys. thrilled to be here. >> that's a great combination of colors, buddy. >> you know. i feel gray today. i want to get some excitement
