Detroit Pistons, MSU Spring Game Takeaways, Tyler O'Connor, Deflategate, Tom Brady Suspension, Rob Blackburn, Battlefield Brawl, and Weekend Winners.

A beautiful weekend in Michigan was teeming with sports news. First of all, the Detroit Pistons faced the barrel in game four of the opening NBA series against the Cleveland Cavaliers and lost. On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" we summarize the series and give thoughts on if this season was successful for the Pistons. Then, after several callers pose questions on a multitude of topics, Al and engineer Isaac Constans give  their thoughts on the Michigan State spring football game, including a special connection that they share to a player who turned heads. After that conversation, Jason Ruff, Current Sports production assistant, presents a feature on Rob Blackburn, new Michigan State women's club hockey team coach. And finally, "Weekend Winners" puts all of the discussion into a broader context.
