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

After a scorching start, the L.A. Dodgers have started to fade. A few weeks ago, they had the best record in baseball. But now, they've lost seven of their last eight games, haven't scored one run for 30 innings, and lost their anchors on offense, Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier, to injury.

The NBA draft is today, and the Lakers could use an infusion of youth to re-spark the struggling franchise. But without a first-round draft pick, it's unlikely they'll get any.

And, the London Olympics will spend more than $250 million on security for the games. But, entertainers won't be getting a slice of that pie, since they're being asked to perform for free.

Guest:

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