Vandalism of Magic Johnson Statue, Rivalry Week, Toronto Blue Jays, 7th Inning Stretch, Special Olympics Michigan, Aaron Mills, and Tom Izzo.

The vandalism of Magic Johnson's statue is an unfortunate continuation of a blemish on a great rivalry. Al and Isaac express their disapproval but also look for a possible silver lining. Then, they review what happened in last night's Blue Jays' series-clinching win and explicate the events of a quite busy seventh inning. Aaron Mills is the next guest up, and he talks about what the Special Olympics is doing during rivalry week to capitalize on the good coming from competition. Lastly, Al and Isaac touch on Tom Izzo's controversial comments about student-athlete workload.
