The Dodgers opened up really big against the San Diego Padres, 14 to 3 ... but then got shut out the next game, loosing 4 to zero. Is it too soon to start paying attention to the team and their record?

And the NCAA reversed a ban they had put on the state of North Carolina. The ban was over House Bill 2, commonly referred to as the Bathroom Bill, which removed protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and required trans people to use public bathrooms according to their birth gender. 

Last year the league said they would not allow championship events to be held in North Carolina, but now its been partially repealed, so the NCAA backed off its ban. 

Take Two's Libby Denkmann talks about these topics, and a lot more with contributors Andy and Brian Kamenetzky.
