"i'm trying jennifer" is the new "bye falicia".. the hip kids know what i'm talkin about so if you're too old look it up. finally we old ladies have a shot with the warriors.. golden state is looking for a few good women.. hot young girls need not apply! they're holding auditions for a senior dance team.. you have to be at least 55 to try out. you know who's got to be on that team: the dancing mom in the

christmas sweater! robin schriber.. she's actually appeared at games already with the warriors dancers!! she's 67 from oakland. they also have auditions for the regular dancers 18 or older and for the junior squad age 6 to 14. when you work out and you need a drink there a million choices.. and kobe bryant is making millions off
9:53 am
one of them: body armor. kobe invested about 6 mill in the company in 2014.. now his stake is worth 200 million..he made 194 million dollars in four and a half years. add that to the $328 million he made in his 20-years on the court.. plus more than 300 mill in endorsements .. i think he has enough for retirement. is that just retirement. is that just mind boggling?? our financial expert is always

saying how we need to save a million dollars in our working life to live on when we retire and he's made closer to a billion.. the rest of us are just eatin' beans to stay alive.. or in this case bees. that's right.. bees.. the kind that fly and sting you.. they just rescued this lost hiker in mount saint helens, who was alone in the wilderness for a week.. he had no supplies... and survived by eating huckleberries and bees that were stringing him. the guy is a nurse and an eagle scout. i didn't even know you could eat a bee. james!
