Current Sports | May 22, 2017


Calvin Johnson; The Preakness; Jason Fuller; Folds of Honor; Dave Ellis; Lansing United; NBA Playoffs; Lebron James; Michael Jordan.

On today's "Current Sports with Al Martin," to start Al focuses on former Detroit Lions wide receiver great, Calvin Johnson, and his strained relationship with his former team.  According to Johnson, the reason why the relationship is not great is pretty obvious. Al explains.  Later Al welcomes the first guest of the show, Sergeant Jason Fuller of the US Army.  Fuller is a longtime friend of Current Sports and a loyal listener! He will talk about the philanthropic campaign called "The Folds of Honor Foundation."  Al then talks Lansing United soccer with play by play voice of the team, Dave Ellis.  It was a historic night on Friday at East Lansing Soccer Complex as Lansing United walked out of its 2017 NPSL home-opener with its largest ever dub.  United shut out FC Indiana 5-0 in the first meeting between the two teams. Enjoy!
