9:17 am
of the night because senator rand paul held up the process. the agreement would fund the government for the next two years, but cogress needs to hash out all of the details and they have until march 23rd to figure out specific appropriations. the two year budget deal lifts spending caps that are in place and increases government spendign by 500 billion dollars the issue senator rand paul of kentucky has with that. is that the majority of the spending isn't paid for. so it would add more than 300 billion dollars to the national debt that's according to the non partisan congresional budget office. most of the money goes to miilitary spending -to 700 billion this year and 716 billion next year. that adds up to about a 10% increase in defense funding and makes repbulcians happy. the deal also provides about 90 billion dollars in disaster

gang gucci gang gucci gang.> the don't garappolo for nothin! jimmy g is waking up this morning with the richest deal in nfl history.. 5 years 137.5 million dollars.. remember when the 6 million dollar man was most! the bionic man.. steve austin.. he could run and jump and see far.. garappolo gets 74 million garunteed: that's 10 million for every game he's started in his career: he's played 5 games with 9ers and two with patriots. now he'll make more in 5 years than brady's made in 14! of course garop got off a private plane
9:48 am
to sign the deal. he'll never fly commercial again. with his movie star looks and millions of dollars he is now officially the most eligible the warriors could sleep easy last night: the nightmare is over.. they clawed their way back from the black hole of 2 losses in a row.. and beat the dallas mavericks last night. it was also klay thompson's birthday.. and his dog rocco got the cake. he loves that dog... so the team gave him this dog cake.. but really??? that's like eating your dog. i just couldn't do it. i'd want to shallack it and save it. while the warriors have shaken off their two losses.. the cavaliers have shaken off the whole team.. seriously they traded everyone you know..
9:49 am
it's easier to stay who's left and that's lebron (and kevin love and tristian thompson) the big stars you know who are gone: isahia thomas and dwayne wade. they had to do something drastic if they were every going to catch up with warriors this year.. so it's out with the old and in with the new.. a three trade deal.. and here are all the players coming and going: that the cavs say will give them younger more athletic and probably players that work better with lebron aka do what he says. i saw a meme that the new cavs jersey has a "hello my name is" tag on the corner. the olympic torch has been lit.. what we missed it? yes cuz it's already friday night in south korea.. (i think they're 14 hours ahead) so in the wee hours our time they had the opening ceremonies which they'll show tonight on tv.. but some of the games have already begun! ice skating and curling!!!! are already in full swing.. and the brother and sister team from wisconsin lost to the
9:50 am
swiss.. james i know you and everybody else at kron but me have been following this closely. they beat the russians but then lost to canada and switzerland. mesmorizing, relaxing, rivoting, hypnotic watch stone move over ice. it's about as much fun as mopping the floor.. or swifting. it's exciting like gardening. worse than watching putting in golf.. like tiger putts and phil mikelson clears the way as the ball roles in slow motion. torture. i don't know how team norway is doing in the competition but i do know they win when it comes to eggs! look at all of these eggs they got!!! 15-thousand eggs to make breakfast! the problem is.. the team chef's meant to order 15 hundred and they didn't know how to say that number in south korean so they used google, and well.. something definitely got lost
9:51 am
in translation. and you should see all the bacon that came with that order!!! just kidding. you can't eat bacon
9:52 am
anymore, it's bad for you. serioulsy.. nobody eats anything anymore: in fact, i just found out jimmy buffett doesn't even drink margaritas anymore. the margaritaville singer says at age 71 years he doesn't do sugar or carbs anymore. he only indulges on sundays and even then it's tequila on the rocks with "a lot of water.".. no margarita mix! james, just like that lost shaker of salt.. some people say there's a woman to blame.
