rouz. to nothing like opening day baseball in san francisco. hard to believe 20 opening days at the ball yard that should be called willy bay stadium. but hey, at least a spa ra's those cardboard cutout fans we saw last year you could tell him goodbye. it's a whole different ball game this year and happy for it names on the back of jerseys. that's something new for the san francisco giants. had a tad over 7000 fans there and they gave buster posey a huge welcome back member. he didn't play last year. the theme for today, resiliency for
6:55 pm
the flyover and the san francisco giants organization and all their fans very, very resilient to get through the past year and none more than brian stone. of course, he threw out the first pitch today and heroic effort and that guy. it's just number one on the courage list. no doubt about it. great move by the giants brian still, as for the actual bomb game that took place shortly after that first pitch. let it begin. johnny quails looking like a boss with gloves to josh went days liner back to the mound. he's keep your pitch hand strong right there that he does seventh inning. it's scoreless. charlie blackmon is called out on strikes. he doesn't like it. he will earn himself a nice objection. 82 3rd for hits, one run seven k's for johnny cueto this afternoon and he would definitely get the vic. treat. but remember, it
6:56 pm
was scoreless for the journey. it's two in the bottom of the seventh. they load the bases, one out brandon crawford to the visa side everywhere you want to be if you're a giants fan, because two runs are gonna score and the giants would take it to nothing lead. they would add another. brandon crawford is a kid's so many opening days as a young giant fans and two out, cueto relieved, bringing jake mcgee three pitches. we're done with it. mckie already three saves. he's given up very seldom. anything really has got one win. san francisco is now four and three and leggo said branded crop especially nice for him to get the game winning hit a lifelong giant fan himself. he was picked is definitely special, just being out there and you know, with fans back in the crowd and. being back at home and being able to get a big hit in a big situation. it seemed a lot
6:57 pm
louder than 9000, or whatever was announced. you know, there's a lot of fun. all right, so much going on in the world of sports down did against the georgia get a little chef lynn going on. it's no longer a runaway halfway through the masters as down to earth has come. the leader is you take a look at the hogan bridge at number 12 ben hogan for you youngsters. he was a pretty good golfer. 50 jeff dustin johnson 15. he's not gonna be in it. come the weekend into the water. he goes. he had a 74 yesterday. 75 today misses the cut by two strokes. say goodbye to wayne gretzky's son in law. jordan speeds making a move it 17 birdie putt 468 for him, 500 total. he is just to back of the leader. that would be justin rose, who will read the green beautifully right here are 72 for him. today he's
6:58 pm
still up one shot. at the halfway point. alright we're talking baseball again. giant fans, you might want to look away. the dodgers received their world series rings today. check this out. let's see this thing and it's a video. i think they like, um, how about 230 diamonds on each ring? 11 carats? liv taylor and her pride with a love that zach mckinstry for the dodgers makes a great catch down the right field line and the dodgers win their opener over the nats one. to nothing. those rings were pretty sharp. i hate to admit it, kristina, you agree? oh absolutely love it. wish i absolutely love it. wish i could have won, but i wou

buona sera, luigi's pizza. buona sera. it means "good evening" in italian. may i say, having to explain that to you calls into question the authenticity of your ristorante? okay, i'm out of here. un momento. oh, for heaven's sake. now you're being deliberately stupid. where are you going? i'm having dinner with priya at raj's. i think howard's going to be there. you want to join us? but tonight's thursday. on thursdays everybody comes over here and has pizza. or a reasonable facsimile prepared by someone claiming to be luigi, but who sounds suspiciously like jackie chan. can't we make a one-time exception for tonight? we could. we could also stop using the letter "m," but i think that idea is "isguided" and "oronic." just come with me to raj's. well, i don't want to go to a party. it's not a party. it's the same group of people who hang out here hanging out over there. i'm sorry, but five people eating and chatting is a party.
7:00 pm
how come it's not a party when we do it here? because we don't throw parties. i don't know what to tell you, sheldon. i'm going to see priya. everyone's over there. you coming or not? well, no, sir, and do you know why? in a word: tradition. every thursday night for the last eight years, you and i and our friends have gathered here in this very spot to break bread covered with cheese and sauce, discuss the issues of the day, and yes, share a laugh or two. but i guess our rich heritage means nothing to you. i guess you're right. see you later. wait! leonard! wait! what am i going to do for dinner? come with me to raj's and eat there. i can't do that. i really doubt that's what he'll serve. but what if he does? i'll be obliged to dine on liver and lungs stuffed in a sheep's stomach. and frankly, blood pudding is essentially the same thing. i don't know why he's serving both. what do you want to do?
