Current Sports #549 | September 16, 2015

Marshawn Lynch's Mom, Parents' Involvement in Sports, Eastern Michigan to Sell Alcohol, Cancer Fundraiser in the Community, Eric Rudland, and James Harden's Violation of Contract.

What crosses the line when it comes to parents' involvement in their kids' sports? Delisa Lynch, the mom of NFL running back Marshawn Lynch, might have done just that when criticizing her son's coach on social media. This elicits stories from both Al and Isaac about their worst experiences with parents that were possibly too-involved. Then, the debate shifts to Ypsilanti, where there will be a test run of selling alcohol at Eastern Michigan football games. Smart savvy business for the school, or is there trouble in the air? Next up, Al goes to a heartwarming story about how Okemos and Mason high school are fighting cancer with their "Compete for a Cause" soccer game. And lastly, the question shifts to whether James Harden should be reprimanded for wearing an opposing brand of his sponsor.
