6:53 pm
that schedule. >> go out on a limb. >> weird time. 49ers object is to win but you don't really want them to win if your a true fan because you want them to get a high draft choice and fred macke is making the draft picks and that hasn't worked out too well. i don't know where to go with the 49ers they are in florida e orlando and staying back east playing in miami on friday and then to chicago and at central university on the campus and same of the message for the 49ers, they seem to be playing better. kaepernick is looking better as a matter of fact and what will it take to get that win number two. >> ultimately it will be our play that determines that and getting closer and closer to wins. we have to get over that hump and we have to be able to cut out the turnovers and the

6:55 pm
defense out. and that's pissing me off. it is not about that award. they are what they are. my goal is to win a championship. in order to do that we have to defend or the world says we traded our defense away when we got kd. like their defense will subbing -- suck now. i take that personal. just remove the doubt from everyone. i heard his mom on a radio show said he did not get his dance steps from her. a lot better dancer than dray mon is. giants fans have had this fantasy badly in need of left field and they were going to sign this guy yoenis cespedes. not going to happen. he reups with the new york

6:57 pm
different changes in my game. and the mine-set is still the same. >> we will see how he fears. the tournament starts on thursday for tiger woods and phase two. can't get enough warriors to a sports cast. one of the warriors, jarell mcgee at target in alameda. a new store and traveling around the store with representatives from five different bay area organizations that helped families in need. >> i am sure they were getting a kick out of that walking around with a 7 footer. >> makes shopping. >> want to leave you now with a pick of a tree. the former bank of america tower and people gather for thissal bay area tradition. a lot of star power. >> they had the dubebie brothers playing beautiful tree and beautiful night and have a great evening. we will see you later.
