>> immediately letting their feelings known on colin kaepernick, there was a huge story this week about him wearing a fidel castro t-shirt. >>russell: colin kaepernick heard a lot of boos from fans in miami yesterday because of a t-shirt he had worn in august depicting a meeting between fidel castro and malcolm x. he was asked about that after yesterday's game. >> what i said was, i agree with education. i also agree with the investment in free universal health care as well as the involvement in helping end apartheid in south africa. i would hope that everybody

7:18 am
this front is going to struggle. there's a lot of storms with it right now but as it works onto the east, it will start to kind of run out of gas and probably going to struggle to move through here. for today, increasing clouds, maybe a stray shower during the afternoon. daytime high of 81 degrees. then for tonight, scattered clouds, low temperature down to 66 degrees. for tomorrow a mix of sun and clouds. daytime high of 83 a little bit of a dry throat there. winds out of the south at 15 knots. seas two to three feet. moderate chop on the bay, seven- day forecast, rain chance up to 30% as we get into thursday. >>vanessa: thank you. right now we want to get to something else that might be an area to avoid. this is according to the citrus county sheriff's office. they're investigating a suspicious death and they are
7:19 am
which is -- they're saying it's in crystal river. sun ripe loop, they want folks to avoid this. this is north of gulf to lake highway, a little northwest of west norvel bryant highway. what we're hearing is that this was originally dispatched as a brush fire but when they got to the area, they found there was a vehicle there that was fully in flames and there was a body inside that so they're asking folks to avoid this. sun ripe loop, crystal river. we'll get to other concerns on the roadways. water main break is closing george road at least until close of business tomorrow. that's going to be shut down between memorial highway and olympia avenue. your work around is likely going to be your best one here, eisenhower boulevard and you'll avoid that as i mentioned until the end of business tuesday. north end of the howard frankland bridge, northbound direction looking slow as we typically see this morning but

7:37 am
recounts in states where we won by over 68,000 votes. >>reporter: and beyond the recounts, trump will be back to transition power today. but no administration candidate is getting more attention than mitt romney. after meeting with trump, he had been openly considered for secretary of state but his harsh criticism of trump during the campaign is leading many trump loyalists to question his possible selection. >> people feel b out of his way to question the character and the intellect and the integrity of donald trump now, our president elect, would be given the most significant cabinet position of all, secretary of state. >>reporter: and also under consideration for secretary of state, former new york mayor rudy giuliani and former u.s. ambassador to the united nations, john bolton. >>laura: nearly three weeks
7:38 am
teacher unions, two of the biggest in the country cannot believe the math. only 51% of union members cast a vote for hillary clinton. 43% of teachers and cool workers went with trump. that's dispute early and eager endorsements for clinton from both of those unions. >>russell: a lot of us will be attending holiday office parties in a few weeks and also getting together with family and friends. word of advice, try to avoid politics. here's fox reporter. don't you understand that? this is one of the most crooked politicians in history. >> you can put half of trump supporters into what i call the basket of deplorables. >> for families with members of opposing political views, reconciling the surprising election outcome could pose major problems during the holidays. >> this just provides yet another venue, if you will, or another topic for which people who might already disagree, who
7:39 am
at georgetown university. >> we all have emotion and it's difficult to regulate emotion and it's difficut for people on the other end of the emotion to also be able to tolerate it. >>reporter: these days, thanks to the power of social media, you probably already know what friends and family members are already thinking about the political climate so at least you'll know what you're walking into. >> knowing that can help an intention. what's my intention going into this meal? plan ago head is a good thing. >>reporter: additionally following tips for how to handle argumentative relatives. work out a preplanned seating arrangement, take a time out, change the subject and ultimately try to remember why you're spending holidays with these people in the first place. >> i'm just going to share a drink with them and not talk about politics.
7:40 am
>> you're going to try to avoid it all? >> yes. there's nothing we can do about it right now. >> you don't choose your family but at least this year, you can choose how to deal with it. >> fans were fantastic. i was trying to talk to guys on the field, and it's a waste of your breath because they couldn't hear a word they were saying. >>walter: just the way we want it, right? derek koetter talking about 60,000 people, most of them cheering for the buccaneers. team sent them home happy with a win over the seattle seahawks. one of the better teams in the nfl. charley belcher, one of the fans very happy, myself included. charley belcher, huge -- what did you think? >>charley: i was travelling yesterday so i missed the first half of the game but as i'm
7:41 am
to change plans in houston and i saw 14-5 in the first quarter. and i couldn't believe it. now, i could believe -- look. this offens is good. jameis winston is the real deal and mike evans is obviously the real deal. the problem with the bucs, they've been notoriously slow starters so seeing 14 points right out of the gate, i was elated because that's what they have to do to they have to start strong. >>walter: that's what i was thinking. i was doing the exact same thing. i was doing odds and ends work around the house. i turn it on to have it in the background and they say, oh, it's the second touchdown pass. what? second? like you said, jameis winston was so slow out of the gate even at florida state and then to jump out to a 14-0 lead, i loved it. >>charley: the cliche is defense wins championships. and around here, bucs fans for a
7:42 am
defense when we see it. we haven't seen it in a little while. you could argue that's what cost lovie smith his job is the fact he didn't turn his defense around fast enough. mike smith, the defensive coordinator for the buccaneers called one heck of a game yesterday and this looked like a bucs defense of old. sacks, take-aways, i mean, we haven't seen this in awhile and to see it two weeks in a row against two really good football teams, definitely gives me hope for the future of this football team. >>walter: i get the sense that something has clicked defensively, especially in the secondary. especially in the secondary because, you know, they were kind of all over the place in the first half of the season and now -- >>charley: new coordinator this year. mike smith, his first year. a new scheme and it takes time. you know, it takes a rhythm. you and i on tv the first time, let's look at the tape.
7:43 am
we were on tv and probably for awhile there and then you get comfortable and move to a new station, you have to get comfortable with the new people around you. look. these people have to get comfortable, used to it and nothing breeds confidence like winning. a couple of weeks like this, they're more confident. they'll go for the interception and make it and it's exciting to see. look. they're not there yet. still need more pieces to the puzzle but to build on success like this fan. >>walter: they'll be hard to beat when you have six sacks, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and one of those recover sod that defense, they're flying around, including verner who had a very special day. much more on that. >>charley: that was a great story yesterday and i loved -- he's one of the nicest guys you would ever meet and to see him play through such tragedy, he lost his father over the weekend
7:44 am
it was good stuff. >>walter: that's huge. all right. we can talk about it all day and i'm sure we will as soon as you get back. i'll see you then. jim weber, did you watch the game? >>jim: that's probably one of the things that i noticed. you look at the defense and they look like they're clicking and you really had that feeling. this is a bucs defense finally. so it was exciting. >>walter: and it's against a very, very good seattle sea haub -- seahawks team. >>walter: bring on san diego. >>jim: exactly. we're ready for you. beautiful start to the day. a few scattered clouds overhead right now. very mild. we'll warm temperatures right back up into the 80s today. that humidity is coming back and on top of all of that, maybe a shower or two as we get into the
