Encyclopedia Crawford Knows All: Don’t Worry, It’s Good For You!

secondhand-smoke
This is not a pro smoking schtick. Actually, I don’t smoke, never really liked it. The fact is that as our nation grows, it seems more and more laws are put in place to, “save ourselves” from…well, ourselves. The fact is, I just like how they always seem to find one culprit, one, “bad guy,” and force everyone to believe it. The fact is, I know smoking is bad. People have known that well over a century now. There is a reason that in the 1920s and earlier, cigarettes were called cancer sticks. (more…)

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – A United Push Forward

tj-yeldon-crimson-tide-beat-lsu-2012-570x358

Politicians ask and beg for your vote, George “the Howitzer” Gerbo and Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti demand it! Barack Obama is still the President of the United States of America. While Democrats rejoice and Republicans plan to regroup for 2016, the country looks to reunite. One thing everyone can agree on, regardless of political affiliation, sports are the perfect recipe for a galvanizing effect.

The college football regular season is now in its final weeks. After crawling out of LSU undefeated, are the Crimson Tide all but destined for yet another shot at a National Title? Who would be their toughest competitor among the teams still lurking just behind the top squad? Another program with a lot of history, Notre Dame, is in the midst of a renaissance. The Fighting Irish are 9-0, having relied heavily on some leprechaun luck in a triple over-time victory of Pitt.

THE SKY IS FALLING! THE SKY IS FALLING (sense the sarcasm)! The Los Angeles Lakers are limping out of the gate. Can this newly formed All-Star team get their act together and become the championship contender they were put together to be? How close are the Lakers brass from pressing the panic button and shaking things up? Is this discussion totally ASININE only a couple weeks into the NBA season? To quote WWE’s Daniel Bryan, “YES! YES! YES!”

Before bowing up another gold quality broadcast, Mike and George keep tugging at their heart strings and take a look at the NHL Lockout. Talking is always progress in a collective bargaining agreement…

Of course, stay tuned for week 10 of the second annual HBS NFL Pick’em Challenge! The Redskin Rule was not upheld, but as usual, the Buzz-Saw reigned supreme. Like President Obama, the Howitzer better get to work!

All ballots are in, and the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show conquers sports radio, one day, at a time….

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Debate 101

ap_barack_obama_mitt_romney_ll_120416_wg

Tis the season for debates. With the Presidential election looming, the sports world has some extreme competition on the news wire. How does sports respond? Get as asinine as possible. For this broadcast, the very best asinine killers around, George “the Howitzer” Gerbo and Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti, debate the conclusion of the MLB season and look forward to the playoffs, what differences they noticed after a week of the professional referees return to the NFL, and make an attempt to decipher the video game action that is sweeping over college football, most notably West Virginia University.

With Mike’s Dodgers bandwagon now officially parked, what team will the Buzz-saw decide is worthy of his luck? Will George jinx any clubs by sending the Curse of the Howitzer their way? Is it Geno Smith’s Heisman to lose, after his absurd 8 touchdown performance over Baylor? While we realize that was a stupid question, how will the Mountaineers and their air assassin fair down the stretch? And of course your favorite sports genius’ continue the HBS NFL Pick’em Challenge.

Who would win a debate between the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw? Let’s be real. The Buzz-Saw is undefeated for a reason. Forget Obama and Romney, cast your vote for Howitzer / Buzz-Saw 2012. Why? Duh! The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports radio, and could conquer the United States of America, one day, at a time….

Trike Adventures – #0: Silence Is Also Cathartic

trike-adventures-0-cover

In our first episode of Trike Adventures, things get crazy! I was upstairs so I told Thomas and Anthony to go start on the podcast and that I would join them shortly. When I caught up with them, I discovered Rebecca Crane and Corey Brill had joined them for a discussion about…something. Seeking to give the show some direction, I accepted the role as moderator and tried to make some sense out of our 30+ minute free-for-all. Topics include: porn, insults, stories of thievery, almost threesomes, and a little George Washington for good measure. Take a listen and remember: all we can do is try to do better next time.

Hyphen’s Long Travelled Thoughts: The Dark Knight Rises Shooting

The-Dark-Knight-Rises

I went to bed last night complaining on Twitter that I probably wouldn’t get to see The Dark Knight Rises in theaters. Having just started a new job, it looks like my comic fandom is going to take a back seat to the real life reality of paying bills. That being said, I was okay with not attending the midnight premiere of DKR. Having attended the Spider-Man 3 premiere in 2007, I realized midnight showings just weren’t for me. I’d rather hit up a matinee the week after the big screening. Less people and a better opportunity for me to focus on the movie. (more…)
