Randy and Jason Sklar, hosts of comedy and sports podcast "Sklarbro Country," and History Channel's new show,"United Stats of America," join the show to talk about the latest in the sports world.

The Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers both failed to win their game 5 match-up in the playoffs. The bigger news for the Clippers, however, was Blake Griffin and Chris Paul leaving their last game with injuries. Neither star is expected to miss any additional games. An additional victory for either team would mean advancing to the second round of the playoffs.

Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps says he'll retire after the 2012 Olympics in London. The celebrated swimmer already owns a record 14 gold medals.

Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers belted four home runs in one game, only the 16th player in MLB history to do so.

And Randy and Jason's new show debuted on the History Channel. United Stats of America has already garnered a great review in the New York Times.
