2016 Rio Olympics, Ryan Lochte, Michigan State Open Practice, Mark Dantonio Comments, Detroit Tigers, and Detroit Lions.

On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" the Olympic fib has everyone talking. After Ryan Lochte delivered a traumatic account of his supposed encounter with armed bandits earlier in the week, the Rio de Janeiro police are now requesting his presence with fellow American swimmers in court after the whole story appears to be fraudulent. Al offers his take on the most bizarre tale you'll hear for some time.  Also, Current Sports mashes up some Mark Dantonio and Marvin Gaye for a Motown Thursday open practice at Michigan State, while Al and engineer Isaac Constans give their takeaways. Finally, the Detroit Tigers and Lions both receive the check-in treatment to end the hour.
