Brad Richardson #15 of the Los Angeles Kings celebrates his goal against the Vancouver Canucks.

Randy and Jason Sklar join the show to talk about the latest in the sports world.

Temperatures in L.A. are warming up, but the big news in sports is on the ice. The LA Kings have a 3-1 lead in their first round playoffs match-up with the Vancouver Canucks. The Dodgers are hot too, with center-fielder Matt Kemp leading baseball in home runs.

At 49 years and 150 days old, Jamie Moyer became the oldest pitcher to win a game in the MLB. Moyer made his debut in the MLB in 1986.

And organizers from the 2012 Olympics in London have invited The Who's Keith Moon to play in one of the ceremonies for the Olympics. The problem? He's been dead for 34 years. Perhaps, they'll go with hologram Keith Moon?

Guests:
Randy and Jason Sklar, twin brothers and hosts of the sports podcast "Sklarbro Country." They join the show every Thursday.
