Geeks Of Gridiron – Week 4: Upsets?! Who Cares About Stinkin’ Upsets?!

redskins-bengals-extremeskins

Week 3 Recap

So it seems The Buzz-Saw isn’t invincible! After a 7-3 week, he’s now slipped into a tie with Kelen for first, after a brilliant 8-2 week by The Hyphen. RGIII and the Redskins cost him a valuable win but we’re still early in the season. Tom bounced back with a 7-3 week of his own that brought him into a tie for second with Triple S, after Sellers’ week worst 6-4 record. So despite the referees trying to ruin everything (and Kelen counting his blessings that he didn’t put the Seattle/Green Bay debacle into play), it’s still anyone’s ballgame! Who will take home the first ever Minister Of The Tricycle Title? Maybe the picture will become clearer after this week.

Trike House Party – Week Five: Blame It On The Sooners

505ead93bab3b.preview-620

Week Four Recap

Through the first four weeks, Mike “The Buzz-Saw” Asti has been the life of the party. Leading from the onset, the Buzz-Saw had yet another champion-like week, going 9-1. Kansas State causing his only blemish in an otherwise flawless week. George “The Howitzer” Gerbo stayed two games back of Asti, also recording a 9-1 record, while Anthony “Triple S” Sellers gained ground on B Hyphen, he lost ground on the HBS team by going 8-2. Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley was the worst this week going 7-3, thanks in part to him trusting old WV ties by (wrongly) picking the Wolverines to win despite Notre Dame having “the luck of the Irish”.[1. I picked Michigan because I hate Notre Dame! – Kelen] The Clemson Tigers also let Hyphen down, as they became prey for the Seminoles of Florida St.

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Blundering Blunders!

PackersSeahawks

Asinine. Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo’s favorite term is perhaps the most fitting way to describe the recent ending to Monday Night Football. As the sports world continues to go bonkers over the replacement referees and how atrocious this game, as well, as the entire NFL season of officiating has been, the integrity of the most popular organization in America is being questioned. How many more referee blundering blunders can the National Football League withstand? This epidemic will be dissected, while solutions of many lingering issues will be answered. Was upstanding the referees incorrect call the right decision by the league? Will this trigger a rush to settle the dispute with the actual, qualified, regular refs? Has the replacement ref scandal actually been a positive for the NFL and created even more of a buzz and a “water cooler” effect then ever before? Where does this blunder rank in the lexicon of game changing historical calls across the history of all sports? With a resident Packer fan on the panel, Mike may be forced into a rare and uncharacteristic job of controlling the action.

After dealing with all the asininity that was MNF, a preview of NFL’s week four and the HBS Pick’em Challenge rolls on. College football joins the docket, with a discussion of the current National Championship and Heisman watch landscape.

Hey NFL, need an official? Mike and George are willing to hear offers. The NFL replacement referees conquer NOTHING, while the Howitzer and Buzz-saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time….
