6:13 pm
really are required, six flags. discovery kingdom opened this morning to folks families and especially children with reservations who were all champing at the bit to get inside them amusement park for the better part of a year. if not more than a year. we are along with our sister park in southern california, the first theme parks in california to open. his gates. two guests to ride rides. it's a godsend for parents and especially kids. they have got to do anything for a year, so this was really exciting for them to want to come out. be about to do something. we have been almost socialized a little one for years, so that was a big thing to our parents got us some of the season tickets and we're expecting to have a great time. since there are restrictions on the number of people who can enter, not every rider, attraction or food place, for that matter was open who will be socially distancing? not only in our cue lines, but on the rides themselves. it's spaced out and when it's based out can it feels like it a lot
6:14 pm
of space around and so we don't have to be all scrunched up in all that stuff safety through sanitation, masking and separation are the hallmarks of the park today, and people who come will have to abide by these reasonable rules. we all just missed the experience. you know, we're ready to go fast s, i think hopping on roller coasters and join the food. i mean, that's why we're here. this vast 135 acre park is really three parks in one there. of course, the rides that range from the simple through the gut wrenching, but the park also has many aquarium features. some of those features eat during the day, courtesy of the guests who can get food for them. it's also a zoological park with many different animals, including everything from small critters to the big cats. of the jungle as well as many more creatures you can see right up close. i know yes for people, jobs, jobs, jobs. we're bringing our team members back to work. and some
6:15 pm
some folks, the significance of that has been over a year. sure now when this county solano county goes into the orange, the increased will be to 25% but still that's going to be quite an experience and you really do need to get online reservations. so you don't walk up here just to be turned away. tom vacar ktvu fox to tom. i'm wondering. earlier we reported about how the san francisco giants for people to get in. they have to either show proof of the vaccination or proof that they've tested negative. are there any of those restrictions? at six flags there in vallejo. several of them including a thermal scan when you first walk in before you can even get up to the line where you have your reservation verified. no, that's how they want to make sure you don't have any fever or anything like that. so it's not terribly rigorous. but the point is, they want to make sure that it's safe for everybody. and that's why the masking and the social distancing are so important to this as we move
6:16 pm
forward, because we don't want this to become just another place where super spreader event takes place. you think there's any chance of that at all? i can't wait to get up there. i may be 63. but man, i love those roller coasters. all right, tom vacar live force tonight. i do. and i love all right, tom, we'll see you later. thank you, already, so we had a pretty warm day today. records broken today didn't happen yesterday, but it happened today are tied. we had a number of tide records. richmond tied a record at 89 livermore at 85 tied, a record said was a beat a record. that's a big one. san was a downtown. this records go pretty far back. it was 85 you'll record. 84 sfo. that's a new record. but that was set today at 84 degrees 84 redwood city that was a tide record. here's some more cities. i mean, it was hot. it's funny because you're not this kind of heat this early in the season is hence the records. it's unusual certainly to see a 90 degree reading and fairfield 88 in antioch. 85 morgan hill, there's a little bit of a sea breeze. now that's turned on a

6:52 pm
this is a no-nonsense message from three. small business insurance is usually so complicated, you need to be a lawyer to understand it. that's why three was created. it's a better kind of business insurance. it's only three pages. straightforward. if you own it, three covers it. got a cheese slice for "spokesperson?" that's me. i don't even need to see what's happening behind me to know it's covered. (screaming) this commercial is now over. logo. three. no nonsense. just common sense.
6:53 pm
6:54 pm
feel all that normal washing over you? we've got the opening day for the major leagues and fans in the stands both the giants and the a's just a few minutes from first pitch right now, joe fonzi jealous up. he's out of the ballpark. right now. it's the a's and the astros. joe, what's the vibe out there right now? i'll be on my will mark you forget how much you love the little things about baseball. and this is, of course, opening day for the a's nothing. the wail opening day was last year. we all know how last year went, but it's just the little things and we just got finished with the team introductions and the one thing you can't help noticing this year was the houston astros somehow managed to avoid all of
6:55 pm
that sign stealing scandal when jose altuve a was introduced tonight, he got i've booze from live fans, but some of the other things that we've been seeing is security guards and season ticket holders hugging each other, just happy to see each other. so as i said, it's not exactly the way we're used to seeing opening day, but i don't know if the people the schedule makers either have a flair for the dramatic or sense of humor. but the same two teams that have been battling for the american league west championship seems like about as long as we can remember. the astros in aids are starting things off this year. and it was. in fact, the astors who eliminated the a's last year ended their playoff run. one of the biggest acquisitions the ace made during the off season was the acquisition of elvis on dress at shortstop, replacing marcus simeon. he and matt chapman over there should make a fine left side of the infield combination assed far as the a's expectations. they're concerned their high just as they were last year. expecting
6:56 pm
to win the division. i think that's the best team that we've had since i've been here, so you know, 97 wins two years in a row. i think we get 200. what do your personal goals right now heading into the season. when the division and when the world syria's. e i got to tell you what the age you're doing right now. they're paying tribute to the late public address announcer #### callahan, who was here for so many years and with the warriors as well. so that's what we're in the middle of right now, so obviously a tribute to him and mark, you just can't help appreciating the little things that i wouldn't say we ever took it for. granted but the fact that we you and i threw our careers have been able to see as much baseballs we ever wanted. it just feels good to be back out here again. it's not opening day like we're used to. but it's the asian, the astros and that's pretty darn good. mark yeah, joe, i know you can't hear me very well. but the last time you and i did an opening that day it was over in san francisco. we're doing
6:57 pm
our thing together in ah siegel. had at us, so whatever happens to you tonight is better than that was, but you enjoy it, like the mask, color coordinated and we'll look forward to your postgame report. hey let's talk about the san francisco giants, shall we? they are in the great northwest against the seattle mariners. they too, just a few moments away from the first pitch of the season, and they had a really productive spring training that feel like they got out of there with no major injuries. gabe kapler in his second full season as the giants manager as you know, that came within a wind of getting in the post season last year, but they're in tough, they gotta face the dodgers and the padres 38 times this year. maybe the two best teams in the national league, but gabe kapler says, i slowed down a little bit. let's not get ahead of ourselves. let's enjoy the moment. we've got the opening night logo's all over the place,
6:58 pm
so pretty easy to stay in the moment on a day like today on, don't get too caught up and the season that's two comets just let's go out there and play great baseball game tonight, and we've worked really hard to get here. so yeah, no need to see the whole staircase right now. the first step the one right in front of us. yeah, of course. we'll have all the highlights and tennis. baseball opens all over the country. rouz baseball weather, of course, in oakland up in seattle, it looks good, but you gotta check this hour. now this is detroit is the indians and tigers? go at it? not quite what you think of his baseball and look at one of the great hitters in all of baseball. miguel cabrera hits one deep. he can't see the baseball. it's over the fence. but clients and the ball over, six like good, but eventually gets up that goes over. that's the sporty like for tonight, baseballs back. yeah, it is. see you
6:59 pm
back. yeah, it is. see you later. g clarify something for me. isn't the point of a communal meal the exchange of ideas and opinions? an opportunity to consider important issues of the day? it is. you just kind of put a damper on things when you said, "the next person i see talking with food in their mouth will be put to death." well, we could argue about who said what all night long, but to set things back on course, i will propose a new topic of conversation. (koothrappali and wolowitz groan) great. what is the best number? by the way, there's only one correct answer. 5,318,008? wrong. the best number is 73. you're probably wondering why. no. uh-uh. we're good. 73 is the 21st prime number.
7:00 pm
its mirror, 37, is the 12th, and its mirror, 21, is the product of multiplying-- hang on to your hats-- seven and three. eh? eh? did i lie? we get it. 73 is the chuck norris of numbers. chuck norris wishes. in binary, 73 is a palindrome: "one-zero-zero- one-zero-zero-one" which backwards is "one-zero- zero-one-zero-zero-one"-- exactly the same. all chuck norris backwards gets you is: "sirron kcuhc." just for the record, when you enter 5,318,008 on a calculator, remember when you were wondering why the girls didn't want to eat with us tonight? yeah, i get it now. i love your little heart locket, bernadette. oh, thanks. howard gave it to me. it's the cutest thing.
