On this Wednesday, Current Sports offers a short snippet into one of the heated debates on 'Barbershop Wednesday.' Join Al, Alex and the rest of the Current Sports team as they discuss when praise goes to far with athletes. Derek Jeter is the focal point of this hot topic discussion.
Happy hump day, and the guys are back with all of the latest Detroit Tigers updates. They kick off the show previewing Justin Verlander's start against the Indians and if the scandal with Kate Upton will affect him. They also touch on Wes Welker's recent allegations and the release of Michael Sam from the St. Louis Rams. To close, it's barbershop Wednesday, and the duo debates whether Derek Jeter's new patch on the jerseys is over the top.
Al is still on vacation, and Matt and Alex still get all of the best sports news to talk about. First, they talk about Adam Wainwright's pitches to Derek Jeter. Were they fair? Did he groove pitches? Also, the duo debates where the MLB All-Star game ranks against other sports spectacles. Later, they realize how fast summer has moved on by and debate further on what the Detroit Tigers need most for the second half of the season.
