ricardo: south carol i drive a golf ball. i drive to the hoop. i drive a racecar. i have a driver. his name is carl. but that's not what we all have in common. we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto . xarelto is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto . hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines.
11:21 pm
fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto , watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto , tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto was the right move for us.

11:23 pm
the great thing about the super bowl, everyone is here. all the former players, all the analysts. and a couple super bowl champions weighed in on what they think about cam newton. >> cam elevated his game tremendously. had the defense to back him up, that had his back. he is the running game. he makes everything happen. he really matured on and off the field. i am proud of him. i know him outside the field and i am proud of him. >> he has earned the right to celebrate however he wants. he has earned the right, if he wants to bring attention to himself, i not saying that is what he is doing but if you want to, he has earned the right. if you want to stop him from celebrating or doing whatever it is that cam newton does, don't let him be an mbp. >> got to love hearing from
