It never gets old, does it? "Current Sports with Al Martin" begins with the play of the century--the memory of Michigan State's Jalen Watts-Jackson bounding into the endzone after an insane fumbled punt attempt on Oct. 18, 2015. After a day of Detroit Lions talk yesterday, Al diverts all of his attention today to ready listeners for the Michigan-Michigan State game this Saturday. The big theme of discussion between Al and engineer Isaac Constans is the unknown, with Michigan fielding a new quarterback due to injury. Al and Isaac flush out the x's and o's and the attributes that will determine the outcome of the battle for Paul Bunyan. Theirs are not the only opinions on the show, however, as MSU head coach Mark Dantonio was at the podium earlier in the day. Callers also share their knowledge. Ending the show, goosebumps go up for Al and Isaac as the NBA season draws close. Far from a full preview, but the two go back and forth on what they're excited for about the upcoming season. Still though, two clear front-runners emerge. The final thought of the day, Al troubleshoots his team, the Detroit Pistons.
