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.

If you work at the Staples Center, you'll be clocking some major overtime. The Lakers, Clippers, and Kings are all hosting pivotal playoff games this weekend.

Who knew the LA Kings would be the strongest playoff team in Los Angeles? The Kings are two games away from reaching the Stanley Cup after going up two-to-zero in their Western Conference Final matchup with the St. Louis Blues.

Last night, the Lakers let a late game lead slip away in Oklahoma City, and they're now down two-to-nothing in the Western Conference semi-finals. And the Clippers lost their first semi-final playoff game against the San Antonio Spurs.

The Dodgers have lost their last two games, but they still have the best record in all of baseball. The Angels, however, aren't doing so well. They recently fired their hitting coach Mickey Hatcher hoping to right the ship.

Guest:

Randy and Jason Sklar, twin brothers and hosts of podcast "Sklarbro Country," and History Channel's, "United Stats of America."
