Pat Summitt, Olympic Concerns, Zika Virus, Draymond Green, Sam Weatherhead, Michigan Amateur Golf Championship, Johnny Manziel, and Weekend Winners.

On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" there's no such thing as an empty weekend in sports. Starting off the show, Al updates the listeners on the health of legendary Tennessee women's basketball coach Pat Summitt, who is in the hospital. Then, Al and engineer Isaac Constans put themselves in the shoes of Olympic athletes, and whether or not the trip is worth the risks. Today's guest, Sam Weatherhead, joins the show fresh off of winning the 105th annual Michigan Amateur Golf Championship to talk about his accomplishment. Johnny Manziel is back in the news, again for the wrong reasons, and to zip up the hour, 'Weekend Winners' is how to recap the best of the sports world.
