It's time for sports with Andy and Brian Kamenetzky, who have covered sports for the LA Times and ESPN.

Let's start with the hottest show in L.A., the Dodgers. It looks like the only team that can match them is the Red Sox. Should L.A. get ready for their first World Series in 25 years? 

NBA preseason is underway, when teams piece together their rosters for the season. Jason Collins, who came out earlier this year, is still jobless and some are wondering if it's because he's the most famous gay professional athlete right now.

Jadeveon Clowney is a star defensive end on the University of South Carolina football team.
