  Today, we give you a sneak peak into tonight's "Current Sports TV" sit-down. Al Martin chats with the head coach of the Lansing Community College men's basketball team, Mike Ingram. Al also gives his thoughts on the University of Maryland approving a plan to sell beer at sporting events, as well as broadcaster Bob Costas and his thoughts on ESPN giving the Arthur Ashe Courage Award to Caitlyn Jenner. It's also "Throwback Thursday"!!!

Michigan’s expanding brewing culture will be well-represented today and tomorrow in Grand Rapids. The 10th Annual Winter Beer Festival will feature more than 100 Michigan breweries with over 1000 different craft beers available to sample.
