Worming a way into North Korea, voting for admission into the Hall of suspicion and the story of the greatest deal ever made. That means it's time for sports with Andy and Brian Kamenetzky, they've covered the sports world for ESPN and the L.A Times. 

Dennis Rodman is making his 4th trip to North Korea, this time he brought some former NBA players to play a basketball game as birthday gift of sorts to president Kim Jun Un. The trip got real when Rodman was interviewed by CNN's Chris Cuomo who asked him about American Kenneth Bae who is being held captive there. Rodman can make himself an easy target, but should he be? 

For whatever reason, determining who gets into the Baseball Hall of Fame is often the focus of heated debate.

The Winter Olympics is Sochi is right around the corner and if you haven't noticed theses aren't your grandparents Winter Games as events have gone past figure skating and hockey and into more X-Games style events, such as slopestyle, much to the chagrin of Bob Costas.

The American Basketball Association was folded into the NBA way back in 1976. The league brought names like Julius Irving Dr. J with it and was immortalized in the Will Ferrell film "Semi-Pro", but the NBA continues to pay through the nose for the memory of the ABA.
