Current Sports with Al Martin starts off with a bang today as the show begins with discussions on "Deflategate." What exactly should happen to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady? Al, CS engineer Isaac Constans, and callers debate the issue.
"Current State" reporter Scott Pohl heads to Ann Arbor to visit the only golf course in Michigan that provides "golfboarding" as a way of getting around the green! Hear Pohl's experience, as well as from those that have tried it. Could this spark golf interest for the young generation?
Lastly, we close out the show with "Throwback Thursday."
You’ve heard of surfing. You’ve heard of skateboarding. You’ve heard of snowboarding. Maybe you’ve even tried one of them, or all of them. But you might never have heard of golfboarding.
Golfboarding is a new phenomenon in golf. Rather than walking or using a golf cart, golfers step onto a motorized skateboard-like device to get around the course. It looks like a cross between an oversized skateboard and a segway.
On this edition of Current Sports, Al goes into depth as he evaluates MSU football halfway through the season. On that topic, there are also clips from Mark Dantonio's press conference and some great questions posed from a caller and for "Top Five Tuesday", Al and Alex each give their top five takeaways from the Spartan football season thus far. The show finishes up with some good, old-fashioned NFL banter and even a little bit of golf talk.
Julius Edwards, new head coach of Lansing Eastern, discusses with Al on how he got the head coaching position and what he will try and accomplish this year on the court. Later, Al and Alex debate whether Brandon Pettigrew and Nick Fairley are overrated players. Finally, to cap off the show, it's reflection Friday. The duo goes over their favorite moments from the week.
On today's show, the Detroit Tigers were the focal point. Last night, Miguel Cabrera was put in to pinch hit, but grounded into a double play. Al, Alex, and callers debate whether Brad Ausmus made the right call to take out Martinez for Cabrera. Later, the duo discuss the coaching hires of the Detroit Pistons. To close the show, they discuss the popularity of golf.
Al has sports writer Tom Shanahan on the show to discuss his upcoming book Raye of Light. Later, Al and Alex talk about the new stadium renovations for the Detroit Red Wings. To close the show, they discuss the recent comments made by NFL icon Tony Dungy, and it sparks a hot topic with callers. Rory Mcllroy in the game of golf is also mentioned.
As the warmer weather arrives, we’re just starting to get a more complete picture of the winter’s repercussions. For many Michigan golf courses, especially in the eastern half of the state, the winter has been one of the worst on record.
Matt Ludtke starts the show with Detroit Lions buzz, as they give YouTube phenomena Havard Rugland a chance to make the team, after signing David Akers. Matt gets into Masters coverage, as Tiger Woods hopes to regain his glory, and two teams fight for the college hockey championship subsequent to the Frozen Four.
