It's Super Bowl week, college Joes want to become pros and the commissioner is done after a three-decade run. That means it's time for sports with Andy and Brian Kamenetzky.  

In just a few more days it'll be Super Bowl XLVIII, Seahawks vs. Broncos. It was media day yesterday, which I'm sure at one time had a real journalistic purpose.

Since both teams come from states which have legalized recreational marijuana, the game has been dubbed by some as the Pot Bowl.  Seahawks coach Pete Carroll thinks the NFL could take things a step further.

From the pros to the amateurs, at least for now. A bunch of student athletes are trying to take a huge step by forming a union. 

The Lakers lost last night for the 17th time in their last 20 games. They are knocking on the door of last place in the Western Conference. It would take a miracle for them to just break even this season. Now news that Kobe Bryant has pain and swelling in his knee and he'll be out action for at least three more weeks if not for the rest of the season. Every week we think it can't get worse but it does. 

On Saturday, NBA commissioner David Stern will step down 30 years to the day he started the job. What is the commissioner's legacy?
