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

The NFL draft is tonight, quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III are expected to head the draft class. Griffin is expected to be the second pick in the draft, but he's already won the hearts of sandwich enthusiasts everywhere. A “Smokehouse BBQ Chicken” statue made of barbecue chicken, lettuce, tomatoes and chili peppers, was unveiled at a Subway restaurant in Manhattan on Tuesday.

L.A. Lakers small forward Metta World Peace hit Oklahoma City guard James Harden with an elbow to his head. He's been suspended 7 games which will cost him at least $300,000 in fines.

The L.A. Kings are still alive in the NHL playoffs, ousting the top seed Vancouver Canucks in the first round. Next up, the St. Louis Blues.
