Happy Cinco de Mayo! Today's Current Sports features a discussion about athletes on social media and American Pharaoh, winner of the Kentucky Derby. Is sports media too quick to jump towards Triple Crown talks? Then, Al brings Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press to the show to discuss the Detroit Lions' offseason. The show is not complete until 'Top Five Tuesday', which features Al and Isaac's top five overhyped sporting events.
Al opens the show fielding callers who talk about Michigan State basketball's Final Four road and the state of Michigan football under new head coach, Jim Harbaugh. Later, listeners get a sneak peak into tonight's Current Sports TV episode with John Johnson from the MHSAA. To close, Justin Verlander and other sports topics hit the airwaves.
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.
NFL is officially underway tonight, and Al and Alex give a big preview towards the later half of the show. Also, a sneak peak of tonight's Current Sports TV show is aired with MSU volleyball head coach, Cathy George. Justin Verlander and potential recruiting violations are also discussed.
