Comedians Randy and Jason Sklar, hosts of the podcast Sklarbro Country and History Channel's "The United Stats of America," join the show to discuss the latest in sports.

We hear a lot of stories about, shall we say "randy" behavior by Olympic athletes. But an Australian competitor has said publicly that he is going to break the rules, and actually sleep with his wife during the Olympics.

Plus, the world champion Japanese women's soccer team will be flying to the Olympics in coach, while their male counterparts fly first class.

And as NFL training camps begin gearing up, so do criminal activities by NFL athletes. The Sklars run down the athletic police blotter.

Guests:

Jason and Randy Sklar, comedians and hosts of the podcast, Sklarbro Country, and the History Channel's "The United Stats of America."
