body parts... the pinky finger is ve u we all take it for granted. i bet raiders quarterback derek carr doesn't take it for granted now... his pinky was pointing in the wrong direction yesterday... when the ball was snapped... his finger was in the way... carr called it the worst pain he's ever felt in his life... this guy is tough... he came back into the game and rallied the raiders to a 35-32 win... oakland is now 10-2... all alone in first place. we had some high drama last night in

broncos battle in a good ole slobber knocker. kansas city down by 8 late... when alex smith hits tyreke hill for the touchdown... they also get the 2 point conversion... so off to overtime they go... chiefs can win it with this kick... cairo santos bounces it off the upright and in... chiefs win 30-27. tom brady is pretty good at this quarterback thing... he picked up his 200th win. he is now tied with payton manning.. for the most all- time wins. brady led the patriots to a comeback win over the jets... there's a real good chance brady will pass peyton next sunday... the patriots host the rams. 20-17 is just over a month away.. and if you're betting on your new years resolution to be to quit smoking.. we have some tips to help you out a little early.
6:20 am
inspiration.. financial incentives may be your best bet. a recent study found that people who are motivated by money were successfully able to quit within a year. nicotine replacement therapy is also a good option. skin patches and gum are scientifically proven to be successful. also having a friend is a helpful tool. get a "quitting" partner to help you along the way. open up the bottle.. and pour yourself a glass.. a new report shows.. having a glass or two of alcohol can help lower your risk of a stroke. researchers reviewed multiple studies... and found people who have one or two drinks a day have a reduced risk for strokes. but you'll want to limit yourself. if you drink too much.. your risk for stroke actually increases by about 15-percent. another black friday is in the books... and some people aren't too happy with the day after

those black friday deals started long before this morning and while a lot of folks were soaking up the discounts-- others were not too happy. first is from antoni who says-- i personally wouldn't shop on thanksgiving day, as i know many people who are working and would rather be home with their families. i understand these families are starting new traditions, in doing so, they are stomping on old ones. old ones that are still trying to be celebrated. perhaps a compromise of a late start. just let people have their dinner and a little rest. we have a caller! they give you a free $10 gift card to every shopper, and then they put four cashiers on the cash registers on black friday, on each on of their little cashier stations, with lines of 200 to 250 people long to wait to cash out. what an absolute joke. what an absolute joke.
6:25 am
some nice ranters. we all have a lot to be thankful for-- this is from tiffany. my husband and i would like to thank the three gentlemen that helped us thanksgiving morning in the albertsons parking lot on buffalo & vegas. thank you to all three for trying to jump start our car & helped push the car to get it going. we truly are so gratful that there are still good people in this world that have a heart and help others . to the three gentlemen, if you are watching this, thank you so much again for helping my husband, daughter & myself. god bless you & your families . plus here's a nv energy gets a lot of heat but, i have to give them a kudos for thanksgiving day and metro pd. everyone was on the job no matter what the day was. power went out at 7pm and they were on it. working 24-7 power was back on in 3 hours. no biggie! maybe that should happen every holiday. think about it!! send us your rants to the rant at fox5vegas.com or call at 702-436-8285

on thanksgiving.. but one couple exchanged vows. a wedding on thanksgiving isn't that odd.. but where it took place may surprise you. zach logan takes us there. happily ever after on aisle three "to our knowledge this is the first time we've ever had a real wedding in one of our supermarkets" (larry tinson, bridegroom) "she asked me. she said where are we going to have our wedding at and i said obviously where i met you at." four years ago after returning from a tour in afghanistan, charles larry tinson ran into the harvey's supermarket on west gordon avenue to pick up a last minute item for his thanksgiving dinner. standup:larry was searching the aisles for cranberry sauce but little he did know that he would find something else, his soulmate. (mary tinson, bride) "i heard someone say 'hey girl' and i turned around and said 'oh my god, larry? i haven't seen you in over twenty something years," mary and larry had met a few times before that thanksgiving but it wasn't until that encounter that the two started dating. (mary tinson, bride)

when a man has a crush on you," said mary. the couple later decided that it was time to seal the deal. and what better place than where they reunited, so they asked harvey's to serve as the venue. (ken wicker, harvey's v.p. of operations) "we are extremely excited to be part of this special day," the supermarket assisted mary and larry with the planning for several months and helped with the live music and the wedding cake topped with none other than cranberries. (ken wicker, harvey's v.p. of operations) "on thanksgiving i mean we all have things to be thankful for and we appreciate them allowing us to be a part of this special moment," a moment that mary, larry, and the over 70 witnesses will never forget. (mary tinson, bride) "on thanksgiving day, he said what he wanted to do is to give thanks to the lord for the old going out and the new coming in."
