Today's show begins with remembrances of Paul Carey and Paul Cook. Al gives his thoughts and memories on the old Detroit Tigers broadcaster and the Lansing hoops legend, then proceeds to reads aloud commenters' eulogies about the significance of both. Next, a round-table discussion postpones the first break until 45 minutes into the hour. Al, engineer Isaac Constans, and CBS Sports Atlanta radio producer and host Deshaun Tate talk through the latest developments for Michigan State basketball, and the conversation is too stimulating to stop. Lastly, Al and Isaac preview the Detroit-Cleveland playoff matchup, as the Pistons are locked in for the first time since the 2008-2009 playoffs.
