things don't slow down. we could still have showers in the mix but by the 7:00 or 8:00 time, most of the showers will be to the south or east. but looking for that to regenerate and making another wave of showers around mid day friday. this is definitely coming in tonight. tomorrow, there are some disagreements in the models. for now, i want to hold with some widely scattered showers mid-day. not thinking that everybody and every county will get it. more so tonight, just about each and every county will. this stuff will be more broken up. anywhere from late morning to lunchtime throughout the dinner time hour. for the cast, which is deon's favorite -- oh, you know it's reggie's favorite. i have seen that 80s picture.

more than 75 recipes for a healthier take on tacos were put in a book. >> wonderful vegetables. and beans are so good for us. you can wrap those inside of a lettuce squeeze or a corn tortilla. >> i like the corn tortilla. >> me, too. i like both. >> healthier go and do it. it's the last diet that you might ever need. the bucs are without a head coach again. we'll look at the new decision maker and also look at what happens to the current players on the roster.
our cosmetics line was a hit. the orders were rushing in. racing towards us. we didn' t need a loan. funding fast. building 18 homes months? that was a leap. on american express to help me buy those building materials. amex helped me buy the inventory i needed. our amex helped us fill the orders. just like that. another step on the journey. will you be ready when growth presents itself? realize your buying power at open.com walmart set out on a mission to find you the best oranges. to do that, we first had to find the best orange growers. we logged the miles, put in the hours, tasted a lot of fruit, and
here we g the bucs should be getting good at this for how often they have done it over the past eight years. they are on the hunt for another head coach, the 72nd in the glazer era. was it true that lovie smith was fired over the phone? yes, but that's his choice. he did not want to come in for a meet can. none of the glazers were at today's news conference. jason was asked about that. sounds like he has new responsibility. >> they have empowered me to be right now the face of the football operation to run the football operation so lead the charge for the next head cope. they have confidence in me and my group, my personnel people. and so i should be the one
>> and maybe this is why the gladessers have left the hire to jason licht. this is their last three head coaches many all swing and maces. raheem moore, greg sciano and lovie smith. seven years of a losing record. who is jason looking at? some of the more popular names. tom coughlin, mike smith. the favorite is dirk cutter. we talked to rick stroud of the tampa bay times about the timeing for the hiring. >> i have seen these things last as long as 36 day when is they hired jon gruder and as short as one day when they hired raheem morris. within a week or so, you'll probably have a new head coach. >> last question, would you be surprised if they have not reached out to dirk cutter within a week of lovie being fired.
i was surprised by that decision. you have to understand whether cutter wants to be the head coach. you imagine he would but you want to have a feel for him and his thoughts about places like miami where mike tank en balm is, who was his former agents. it may be difficult to lose bother dirk cutter and lovie smith within one year. i think they do have an idea. >> what does this mean for the current bucs? possibly a scheme change, maybe not on offense but on the defense. that means that players cannot spend the offseason perfecting their craft. >> what happens is you change a system so what you didn't do well in the season, you spend the offseason perfecting. it's all about the system, not you as the individual player and it's hard to improve, you know, in that kinds of environment. >> finally, congratulations
they are among the 15 finalists for the pro football hall of fame for the third straight year. >> that's man. >> the new guys will be announced super bowl weekend. we'll see, end of next months. >> yeah. >> i keep hearing that it looks good for tony. >> really? >> but we don't know for sure. >> too early to say. >> stay with us.

pat and vanna? >> hi, pat. >> how, vanna. >> i have a question for you. >> yes. >> how do you know the letters on the panel. >> it's like magic. these fingers can make the letters light up. he can try but -- >> look, nothing happens [ laughter ]. >> i love his laugh. he got to solve a custom made puzzle which read "wheel of fortune loves eric". >> he was such a beautiful little boy. he loved everything. >> a beautiful spirit. >> and a jedi knight. >> he had his light sabre.
