On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin" the sports weekend brought reprieve for neither Michigan or the country. Opening the show, listen to the best of Joe Louis Arena, including what legend Steve Yzerman had to say during Joe Louis Arena's last game. Al interviews Helene St. James, Detroit Red Wings beat reporter for the Detroit Free Press, who was there to witness the final game at the Joe. Then, there could be a new set of icy memories in East Lansing. Al invites Impact Sports hockey reporter Jason Ruff to talk about the possible hiring, yet to be confirmed, of former player Danton Cole as the new MSU hockey coach. Following the always informative insights of Jason, Al and Isaac talk about The Masters and new Green Jacket owner Sergio Rodriguez.  Last, 'Weekend Winners' features the best from a jam-packed weekend, including the tightest MVP race in recent NBA memory.
