  It was a busy weekend in the sporting world. The Detroit Pistons and Detroit Red Wings have both cinched up spots in this year's playoffs. On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" we talk about the matchups for Detroit professional sports and the likelihood of each team pulling off a miraculous upset. Even before those thoughts are voiced, though, what happened to Jordan Spieth? Al and engineer Isaac Constans play mock psychologists to find out what led to his heartbreaking collapse and a green jacket for Danny Willett. Also, Al interviews Bob Kendrick, president of the Negro League Baseball Museum in Kansas City, Missouri. Bob discusses Jackie Robinson's contributions to the game of baseball in preparation for WKAR's airing of the PBS and Ken Burns special Jackie Robinson. And finally on the show, "Weekend Winners" takes you around the globe to hear who had the most fruitful weekends in all of sports.
