1:56 am
but not facebook. it dropped 11%. for investors that's certainly no great deal. it is a kick in the pants. over the weekend, zuckerberg got hitched to his longtime girlfriend and changed his status to married. it seems facebook factors into a lot of divorces. four out of five lawyers in this country say social networking is helping to break up marriages and the texts wind up in court as evidence. facebook makes it too easy to find old flames and make new friends with benefits. >> there you go. stay off facebook. >> okay. >> okay. well, all right. lovely weekend. >> yes. rainy monday. >> we're going to try to dry it out for the holiday weekend. we have the unofficial beginning of summer. >> that's four days away, man. >> it's going to take every bit of four days to dry it out. it may not even dry out after four days. we'll keep you posted here. let's start with a live look

griffin, iii on television showcasing his beat boxing skills. we've seen him throw the ball around with his fellow rookies. today we saw him practice with the big boys. he got a chance to orchestrate his first full practice for the entire team, impressing his new teammates today. but he knows he's shouldering a lot of responsibility here, and says he's just trying to take it one day at a time. >> you don't want to stress about it. you can be in your playbook 24/7, still get out there and not know what you're doing. i try to make it, you know, even to where i'm in my playbook, know what i'm doing, know my coverages, but not beating myself in the head trying to know every little detail. >> head coach mike shanahan proving he's a tough guy, too. near a play near the end of practice, he was blindsided by a defensive back. we're not allowed to film that segment. he was laid out on the turfmotionless for a few moments but able to get up on his own and finish practice. he didn't suffer serious injuries, just a little woozy.
