Sir Alex Ferguson, manager of Manchester United celebrates victory and winning the Premier League title after the Barclays Premier League match between Manchester United and Aston Villa at Old Trafford on April 22, 2013 in Manchester, England.

It's time for our weekly romp through sports with Andy and Brian Kamenetzky. They've covered the L.A. sports scene for over a decade for the Times and ESPN.  

The Lakers and Clippers are done, so we'll begin with a check-in on the Dodgers and the Angels. Plus, there's another successful L.A. team, the LA Galaxy. They've won back to back MLS Cups, and they're playing well so far this season (they're currently 2nd place in the Western Conference).  

No matter what happens with American soccer, Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson is going to retire with 13 EPL titles in 26 seasons, two Champions League titles and five  Football Association Challenge Cups. We talk a lot about Phil Jackson in this town, but there's a good argument to be made for Ferguson as one of the greatest coaches of all-time. 

Plus, more on Tim Tebow,  Toronto Blue Jays pitcher J.A. Happ is in stable condition after being hit in the head by a line drive, and much more.
