baseball team in a road game giants and he's playing tonight in the first installment of this year's bay bridge series. the giants coming home from winning eight of 11 on the road with the second best record in baseball. the aids haven't been bad either . oakland is nine and eight and just a game and a half back in the american league west. sharing the same metropolitan area isn't the only thing that two teams have in common. their managers have earlier history. i think it's 1993 mark cots and i were both freshmen at cal state fullerton and southern california. my memory of gabe was driving up on a rag top five point. oh, black mustang. for practice and parking and augie garrido spot market went on to be a very good baseball player, cal state fullerton and i was politely asked to leave the program, but we were just trying to survive and trying to learn how to become grown men and adults and make good decisions. the giants wrapped up their long trip yesterday in milwaukee, where the lesson might be, don't

try to get under the skikin of jock peterson trailing one nothing in the eighth inning, peterson came to the plate with two outs and a runner on a fan along the first base line had been vocally riding him. he made note, then hit the next pitch over the center field fence. peterson gets the final say on that one. tied for the major league lead in home runs with six and according to his manager , there's a lot more to what he contributes. think what stands out to me most about jock is not not the performance on the field , not that particular interaction, but. what an extraordinary teammate. he's been today. his demeanor in the clubhouse his demeanor in in the dugout have been cool and calm and collective and second to none in terms of how you want to draw it up. the warriors will try again tomorrow night to wrap up their first round series against denver. they'll do so with the player who's returning to form at just the right time. clay thompson was one of the signature members of the
6:56 pm
warriors, who went to the nba finals five straight years. his return from two separate injuries has been well documented. but in his last seven games he's played as well as at any time in his career, thompson is averaging 30 points a game on 53% shooting overall and 51% shooting from three point range. expectations are again high for the warriors, with the intensity growing by the game. clay knows by now how to keep from getting affected by all that. luckily i have a boat and fishing and being on the ocean. is a great remedy to that stuff, doing other things besides basketball, you know, reading a book go for a walk. you know, there's more life than ah internet and nba, twitter so being able to be out here and play and be free, free minded when i play, it's, uh some i don't take for granted. erik spoelstra in miami, trying to close things out tonight against atlanta, fourth quarter victor oladipo hits a three to put the
6:57 pm
heat up by eight or depot led the heat with 23 points. miami wins by a final score of 97 94. the heat moves on winning that series four games to one. and soccer's champions league semifinals. manchester city hosting real madrid in the first leg between the two teams acquainted with glory, he can be the man city with a two goal lead in the 55th minute. even a cious junior gets real back in the game. he takes the ball all the way in himself finds the net. it's now a 3 to 2 games. but man city answered back. alexander zinchenko taken down outside the box, bernardo silva collects the ball hits real madrid net. manchester goes on to win 4 to 32 teams meet one more time next week in madrid. you're right. champions league fan. this is your time of the year. thompson he really seems like he's struck the right balance, right? i mean, i think one of the favorite things for
6:58 pm
all of us to do. as unfortunate as it was that those two years in a row he was signed by two separate injuries was to watch what he was doing on twitter and all the different things. he was posting. he was out on the bay. he was swimming. he was i didn't see him swimming with the dolphins, but he might as well have been all the various different things that he was doing. but he's very happy that the attention he's getting now is because of what he's doing on the court, not what he's doing in his rehab, interesting to get in the minds of athletes to during the midst of these playoffs, what they do to stake like grounded and right. and like, get that perspective, he says. he goes out on his boat and he comes in with a free, clear mind. i mean, you have to have a such a such a mindset to be able to do what they're doing, and it's interesting to hear how they get there and to have been there before which so many of those warriors have, because the fish bowl only gets more and more intense as the playoffs progress and the national media then becomes part of it and the international media. so the guys that have been there before it helps its physical and mental as well. right, joe. thank you. thank
6:59 pm
you. thanks everybody for you. thanks everybody for joining us. the news at good evening. i'm your guest lecturer dr. sheldon cooper. i was expecting applause, but i suppose stunned silence is equally appropriate. i agreed to speak to you this evening because i was told that you're the best and the brightest of this university's doctoral candidates. hmm. of course, that's like saying you are the most important electron in a hydrogen atom. (chuckles) 'cause, you see, there's only one electron in a hydrogen atom. best and brightest, my sweet patootie. all right, let's begin. show of hands, who here is familiar with the concept of topological insulators? don't kid yourselves. i found another tweet from a student at sheldon's lecture.
7:00 pm
"dr. cooper has taken a relatively boring subject "and managed to make it completely insufferable. plus, he looks like a giant insect." (laughing) look. listen to this one. "does einstein's theory explain why time flies "when you're having fun, "but when you're listening to dr. cooper, it falls out of the sky, dead?" (chuckling) ooh, somebody took pictures and uploaded them to their flickr account. wow. how do you get an entire lecture hall to flip you off at the same time? apparently, if you're sheldon, all you need to do is turn your back. hey, leonard, is your wi-fi down? i can't get on. oh, sheldon changed the password. it's now "penny is a freeloader." no spaces. thanks. what are you guys doing? sheldon gave a lecture at the university tonight. we're reading the reviews. oh. how'd he do? well, picture the hindenburg meets chernobyl meets three mile island meets tron 2. that bad, huh?
