Detroit Tigers' Playoff Chances, Remembering Arnold Palmer, PGA Tour, Engagements at Games, Rich Kincaide, Dr. Joseph Parent and Heisman Candidates.

On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" everybody's getting married. That's at least how Al sees it, and he starts the show today with one of the funniest sports-engagement stories you'll hear. Then, it's on to the timely Detroit Tigers, who with a big win yesterday are just one game out of the wildcard spot. Rich Kincaide, Detroit sports broadcaster and author, comes on the radio to give his preview for the final games of the Tigers season.  And then, prepare for some stories that prove the old apothegm that legends never die. Dr. Joseph Parent, an acclaimed PGA Tour instructor/author and man who once met "The King" Arnold Palmer, is on the show to reminisce about the life of golf's icon. To conclude the show, Al and Isaac give their top two Heisman frontrunners.
