Drugs, murder and ice cream can only mean one thing: It's time for a look at sports. We're joined by Andy and Brian Kamenetzky who've covered sports for the L.A. Times and ESPN.

Although his drug test for performance-enhancing drugs was invalidated, Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun has been suspended for the rest of the season. Braun was the 2011 National League MVP, just barely beating Matt Kemp of the Dodgers.

The MLB is pushing to punish star players for using PEDs, but by doing so, the league is keeping the story in the headlines. Is punishing these players worth it?

Aaron Hernandez's situation keeps looking bleaker by the day. The former NFL star could be facing a double homicide charge from last year.

It's been almost 20 years since an NFL game was played in Los Angeles, but that dry spell could be coming to an end.

The Dodgers are in first place after winning 11 of their last 13 games. What does the hot streak mean for the team and their employees?
