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.

First, the L.A. Kings continue their torrid hot streak in the NHL playoffs, winning Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the New Jersey Devils last night. The Kings are now three games away from their first-ever Stanley Cup Championship.

Then, the Dodgers are still leading the National League West division and the Angels are 8-2 in their last 10 games, but former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt is reportedly being investigated by a grand jury.

And, 6-year-old Lori Anne Madison of Virginia became the youngest speller in National Spelling Bee history yesterday, but fell four points short of making the semifinals after misspelling "ingluvies."
