Also, with the NFL regular season beginning tonight with the Green Bay Packers traveling to Chicago to take on the Bears, Al talks about some storylines that will make this season exciting. Then, Geoff Kimmerly, Media and Content Coordinator for the Michigan High School Athletic Association, joins the show to talk about the decline in high school athletic participation, and what factors could possibly lead to this decline.
