and really take the drum sticks. don't be afraid to get in there and break that down to the side. what that gives you is a stable bird to work with. next, you want to take your breast off. so usually what i do, i follow this bone right here, is the wish bone. i'm going to make that cut and follow the breast bone down. what you can do is get that whole breast off. i'm carving around the wish bone and taking the whole breast off. i will keep the whole breast together and i will make nice, big slices for my platter. the rest of the turkey i will do with my hands. for the dark meat you can almost just pull those bonesout, and either this -- you can either slice with a knife or you can sort of shred with your hands. >> you made it look very easy. >> thanks. we have had a lot of practice. happy thanksgiving, everybody. >> wait for the microphone, i have something new to try on
6:48 pm
thanksgiving. good stuff. >> definitely. how is the forecast for that day? >> spencer is back. something to be thankful for is the weather changing, spencer. >> that is so true. much-needed rainfall and better air quality, both coming our way. the storm is just off store, ranking two on the storm impact scale, a storm of moderate intensity. we will feel its impact overnight and early tomorrow morning with moderate to heavy rainfall at times, wind gusting 20 to 40 miles per hour, maybe even isolated thunder. by 3:30 a.m. we will see showers moving into parts of mendocino county and sonoma county, and then near the end of the morning commute, while it is still going on let's put it that way, we will see steadier, heavier rain pushing into the north bay on the coastline, finally spreading to all parts of the bay area by late morning to midday. it will be a wet day and windy at times as well. we won't see the intensity of the storm tapering off until late afternoon, early evening, and it will be followed by more waves of rain tomorrow night,
6:49 pm
into thursday morning, thanksgiving day. we have a string of wet days coming our way. tomorrows highs about 60 as the coast to maybe 62 in the mildest inland locations. here is the seven day forecast. thursday's storm ranks one on the impact scale, friday's rank one on the impact scale. milder conditions before monday with the arrival of more rain on tuesday. there's a rainy season after all. >> not kaktly texactly the holi spirit at the warriors. what is going on? >> you noticed that? kevin durant had choice words for a fan in the front row, and he will be paying the price for that. the n

now abc 7 sports with larry beil. >> good evening. the past week obviously has not been fun for kevin durant. there was the argument with draymond following by never-ending stories about the argument with draymond and now a $25,000 fine. the fine was for a few choice words directed at one fan saturday night in dallas. the fan had been heckling kd. you can imagine what he was saying. kd responded with a harsher version of, hey, could you please be quiet and watch the game. i'm sure he delivered it just like that. warriors are home for four straight games starting with okc tomorrow night. yes, russell westbrook, kd's old buddy, will be in town. steve kerr says the team has to eliminate all of the noise.
6:53 pm
>> all of the other stuff that happens throughout the year, some is made public, some of it is not. our job is to deal with that stuff internally as a family, and that's what we do and, you know, that's -- that's -- there's not going to be any detail coming out. >> college hoops, jones and cal taking on temple. mcneil led the way with 12 points. he hit three threes, knocking this one down from the right corner. you blink and you might miss temple's bask. who is guarding him? nobody. rose again. another quick strike lob. watch, somebody. rose had a game high 23. temple wins 76-59. that game in new york. caps off 1-3. i hope you watched the rams and chiefs. they played an instant classic last night, 54-51 rams. if only we could get a superbowl like that. man! former cal star jared goff threw for 413 yards, four touchdowns. had a rushing touchdown.
6:54 pm
this was an amazing shootout with patrick mahomes of the chief. goff's dad is a california firefighter, so this week really has been kind of surreal. >> it's been a long two weeks, a long two weeks. i slept in my bed once i think. i know all of us are in the same boat. feel for everyone who's, you know, lost their homes and everyone who's mourning the deaths from the shooting, and it just puts a lot of things in perspective, like i talked about. you know, right now we're playing a football game and won a game that hopefully brings joy to a community that needs it. >> excellent message. the oakland a's took home named the edward martinez designated hitter of the year award winner. he becomes first a's player since dave parker in 1989 to win the award. he crushed 46 homers, drove in 118 runs. davis led the american league dhs in runs, hits, doublers, homers, rbis, finished third in slugging percentage. not a bad year.
6:55 pm
sharks were set to play edmond son and mcclelland tonight except mcclelland was fired earlier today. he was with the oilers since the 2015-16 season. he missed the playoffs last year despite having a young, talented roster. he got off to a slow start again this season, so mcclelland and they're replacing him with veteran hitchcock. this is the second head coach firing within 12 hours and the fourth this season already. >> it is the nature of the business i think. i think we all knew, you know, when you went a whole year last year without one going that -- that this was a possibility and, you know, i think -- but, you know, i'm sure all four of those guys will be working again soon. steph curry does a two-ball dribble that's the highlight of every warrior as pregame warm-up. kyrie irving has reupped it by doing the drill while standing
