Randy and Jason Sklar are back with Madeleine to talk about the latest in sports.

This week, Magic Johnson is part of a group expected to purchase the Dodgers, and the current owner, Frank McCourt comes out ahead. Way ahead.

The final weekend of the NCAA Basketball tournament begins, as the Final Four of Kansas, Ohio State, Louisville, and Kentucky head to New Orleans. Kentucky and Louisville have a pretty intense rivalry, both on and off the court.

Plus, the U.S. Men’s Soccer Team failed to qualify for the London Olympics. And what do you call roast beef, pastrami, corned beef, American cheese, mayonnaise, lettuce and tomato on white bread?
