So sometime in March or even February, I made a visit to my good friend DJ Strizy, when I still lived down the street from him. We bullshitted for the most part and then, as he always does, he played some music. This wasn’t his standard electro kick he had been on though. He played me a cut called “Pussy Marijuana” by David Sebastian. While the song’s content wasn’t the greatest, I couldn’t deny how hot the track was.
“Yeah,” Strizy said nonchalantly. “That’s on my hip-hop mixtape.”
“You did a hip-hop mixtape?!”
“Yeah. It’s on UStream. I don’t have a cover for it though. I might not even put it out.”
“Email it to me.”
A few days later, I had Hood Secrets 3 in my email. And due to some real life commitments and sheer laziness, I sat on it. By the time I finally got around to posting it in April, the gears were in motion for this website’s creation. I figured: what better way to get our website out there by attaching it to this great mixtape?
So I present to you DJ Strizy’s Hood Secrets 3, officially brought to you by TricycleOffense.com. An hour + of great music delivered by someone I consider a music connoisseur.
I’m proud to welcome you to The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show, a podcast done by 2 good friends (and future sports anchoring stars), George “The Howitzer” Gerbo and Mike “The Buzz-Saw” Asti. As someone who’s devoured any type of sports info I could get a hold of since I was kid, I’ve seen and heard my share of great sport commentators. I’m glad to say that Gerbo & Asti are the first future great ones that I know personally. It doesn’t hurt that I’ve been on their show 4 times either. As soon as a new episode is posted of The HBS, you can find it here on TricycleOffense.com. Website

It’s been awhile, but Mike “the Buzz-saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo will never leave your side. On the heels of an HBS vacation, your favorite sports geniuses are back and ready to rant away at all the asininity that has gone on since the last time their voices graced the radio waves. A three-year-long prediction and bandwagon by the Buzz-saw has come true. With eye rolling and laughter from the Howitzer at a premium, Mike’s level of unbearable arrogance has now been turned up a notch (some didn’t think that was even possible). A conference final recap and preview of the fight for Lord Stanley’s Cup will highlight the program. Moving from the rink to the hardwood, how will things change when Miami’s Big Two adds a third wheel again? Can the return of Chris Bosh actually hurt the soaring Heat? Do the Celtics have one last run left in them? Can Boston beat up their little brother in one final heavyweight bought? Will Oklahoma City be able to grab the torch from the unwilling Spurs? Following a discussion of who is still standing in the NBA, Mike has a special buzzsawing session in store for a franchise that went fishing weeks ago. A brief baseball update will also be on the docket. Expect the terms, idiots, morons, buffoons, and of course the always popular, ASININE to be used frequently. The Howitzer and Buzz-saw Show: the least asinine podcast around. And the only show that conquers sports radio, one day at a time….
On May 21, former West Virginia Mountaineers coach Bill Stewart passed away from a sudden heart attack. He had been playing a round of golf with WVU’s former athletic director when he collapsed. Continue reading →
Last night, while I was laying in my bed watching SportsCenter, Stuart Scott made a line reference from the HBO Series The Wire. It went something like “You come at the king, you best not miss!” He was also making reference to LeBron “King” James making a highlight play, which made me cringe because I’m a biased, bitter Cleveland Browns fan (as I will proudly state time and time again).

So let me introduce you to Slaughterhouse. For those of you not in the know, Slaughterhouse is a hip-hop supergroup formed in 2008. Joe Budden and Royce da 5’9″ had traded a few bars back and forth at each other but instead of launching into an all out battle, the 2 settled their differences and decided to work together. Eventually. Continue reading →
The inaugural podcast of TricycleOffense.com has arrived as Thomas Crawford and Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley sit down to talk about a little wrestling. Okay, make that a lot of wrestling. It’s their review of WWE’s 2012 edition of Extreme Rules as they cover the card top to bottom. They explore the phenomenon of Daniel Bryan, give all praise due to Chris Jericho, and Kelen goes on an epic rant about the Brock Lesnar/John Cena main event. It’s all the Extreme Rules coverage you’ve been waiting for!
As a devout Cleveland Browns fan growing up, I quickly learned I will always have one thing to look forward to every year. That is, and always will be, the third weekend of April when the NFL Draft occurs. You could only imagine my joy when 8 o’clock rolled around on Thursday night, April 26th, with my cell phone glued to my hand as I was stuck at work playing the role of an “exuberant” shoe salesman.
