When sports get funky, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo spear the asininity for the three count. Championships will be won, contracts will be signed, and punches will be thrown…all on this edition of the best damn podcast around, the Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show!
If a franchise with unlimited money is what you want, look no further than the Los Angeles Dodgers. Clayton Kershaw already has 2 Cy Young awards on his resume. These and his consistent early career brilliance has earned the Dodgers ace some straight cash to the variety of $215 million. Kershaw will now earn an average of $30 million per year for 7 years. Even with his success and promise for the future, was this too much to pay for player only taking the field every fifth day? What will this mega contract mean for future deals?
Sticking with baseball, MLB has officially passed their new instant replay system. Will replay eliminate the constant controversies? Are there and negatives and adjustments that still need made?
When your team is losing and suffering from a disease of drama, what do you do to gain attention? Well, punching a defender, after your posterizing attempt was foiled is usually a solid choice. Nick Young agrees. Is a 1 game suspension enough? What the Hell is wrong with the Lakers immature Kid N’ Play look alike?
Any reason to press the panic button for the Heat off their losing streak? Mike informs George why he’s insanely overreacting.
Another gold quality broadcasts caps off with the NFL’s Championship weekend. Who will win the bitter rivalry of youth between the 49ers and Seahawks? Does Peyton Manning need a win for his legacy? The Super Bowl 48 matchup will be set.
Our champions are eternally crown, as the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
Happy holidays from Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo. Your favorite sports geniuses say Merry Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or whatever the Hell you people celebrate. However, we here at the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show want to make it clear we do not wish a happy holiday season or send any warm regards to the buffoons. You people just suck too much to wish joy for.
On this holiday buffoon excluding edition of the HBS, we start with news of Kobe Bryant suffering another injury, as he’ll now be missing six weeks. Mike and George discuss how this will impact Kobe and the Lakers as a team. They also venture into rare waters, asking if his contract was hypocritical and selfish from his self professed goals of winning another championship. There is plenty of warranted criticism to place in Kobe’s directon. Sorry, not sorry no one else wants to go there.
There’s a forced west coast bias in the NHL these days. Why? Well the West, most notably California is where most of the quality teams are. The Ducks are for real and the Kings keep sippin’ on that winning gin and juice, while everyone else (except Chicago) toils around them. Are really any other true Stanley Cup caliber squads out West besides Anaheim, Los Angeles, and Chicago?
Over in the Eastern Conference, a former West power, the Detroit Red Wings have been an odd mess. Is it fixable in Hockeytown?
It was another NFL week of drama. And the Buzz-Saw is disgusted with one member of the Dallas Cowboys, not named Tony Romo.
A final bow is put on the holiday season and possibly the year with week 16 in the HBS NFL Pick’em Challenge, as well as an early look at college basketball.
The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw send vibes for a happy holiday season to all except the buffoons, while conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…
Asinine dramas may scare some of you. Asinine dramas excite Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo. Asinine dramas are currently overdosing all over the sports world. With now a festive vibe for the holiday season, your favorite sports geniuses entertain you, and really themselves, trying to uncover the roots to it all.
Despite having already clinched the Most Asinine Franchise of the Year award, the Washington Redskins just won’t stop. Mike Shanahan has now officially decided to bench or “preserve” Robert Griffin III (or Bobby 3, as we like to call him) for the rest of the season. From there, it’s been a domino effect. Mike, in typical heel fashion, actually lends a rare perspective in a semi-defense of the hated Shanahan. Is this perhaps the best decision for RGIII and the Redskins future, regardless of motive? Where does this once proud organization attempt to go from here?
Keeping up with the dramatic trend, the NHL saw another game turn into a fiasco recently. What the Hell went on between the Penguins and Bruins? Did Shawn Thornton’s actions mask James Neal’s? Are the punishments fitting to the crimes? How do these incidents compare to the crimes of the past?
College football finally got it right with Florida State and Auburn set to meet for the National Championship. And with Nick Saban not going to Texas, Mike gives his conspiracy.
It’s the stretch run in the HBS NFL Pick’em Challenge! And the Chicago Bulls life of lunacy continues. Will they actually trade their head coach?! Even with Derrick Rose’s injury, is the Knicks really a better gig? The Curse of the Howitzer strikes again.
Embracing drama and asininity like it’s their job, the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
Innocent until proven guilty is a notion that is rarely used in today’s society. It seems it has finally won out. Jameis Winston will not be charged with sexual assault. Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo discuss if the Winston case was handled properly, give their thoughts on why no charges were filed, and if this will, and more importantly, should it hurt his Heisman canidacy?
Rape is a serious issue. However, sometimes justice is not always just serving the victim. Mike does what he does best, tongue lashing the masses.
From one serious drama, to one with comedy at a premium. Mike Tomlin has been fined $100,000 for his “tackle” attempt. Was the Pittsburgh Steelers head coach acting intentionally? Did the punishment suit the crime? What impact, if any, did this really have? WHY THE HELL WAS A MAN WHO STUDIED THE JFK ASSASSINATION CALLED?! Cue the memes!
In addition to the Tomlin asininity, some pivotal late season games stir the pot in the HBS NFL Pick’em Challenge.
Derrick Rose is out for the season. The Curse of the Howitzer rears its ugly head. Will the former NBA MVP ever be the same again? Can his career be saved with now a second season missed? How much of the blame should fall on George?
It’s the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw – striving to serve justice, always showing up, and conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…
As the holiday season kicks into gear, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo get in the feasting mode. Not only are they preparing to feast on the upcoming Thanksgiving meal, they will be feasting on the sports world as well.
Major League Baseball wasted no time in firing up the hot stove. Prince Fielder and Ian Kinsler will be swapping teams. The Detroit Tigers sent their declining former “big bopper” to a more suitable home in Texas, while the Rangers shipped their WARrior to the “D.” Who was the winner of this deal?, Perhaps was this a rare even trade? Can this revitalize Prince Fielder’s career?
Just like in baseball, there’s a lot heating up on the ice. However, it seems to only be heating up in one conference. The Western Conference currently holds the eight best teams in hockey. What is the reason for the extreme west dominance? Will the west continue to own the league throughout the season?
Jonathan Quick’s magic will be absent from the Los Angeles Kings indefinitely, after a recent injury. How much will this effect the Kings? And maybe more importantly, will Quick’s injury hurt team USA’s chances in the Olympics? There’s even some more immature/hilarious/asinine Twitter banter among NHL franchises.
Dwight Howard is an overgrown child. This is fact. His antics in a game against Dallas showed exactly why. Will Dwight ever grow up? Will the Dwightmare that is now his career ever stop being asinine? We can all dream, right?
Thanks to controversy, George earned his biggest lead in years in another week of the HBS NFL Pick’em Challenge.
A feast for the hungry will always be conquered. The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer their sports starvation, by conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…
Whether it be team buzz-saw machines that can’t be stopped or individual buzz-saws that once let loose can be a destructive force, there are many buzz-saws taking over the sports world these days.
Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo cover all the asininity. Another NBA season is here. Can anybody dethrone the Heat? Is Chicago really the best East team to beat Miami, or is maybe the squad they’ve had the most trouble with, Indiana, the true top contender? Are teams like the new look Nets or the Knicks true threats?
Out West, is it time for a team like Memphis or the Warriors to go from sexy pick to finally getting over the hump? Are the Clippers for real or are they overrated? And of course, never count out the Spurs. How much drama will arise in Laker Land this season and how good are the Rockets? On paper it seems Houston is built for success, but will they do it their first year together?
Respects are paid to one of sports revolutionary all-time buzz-saws, Allen Iverson. No, we’re not talkin’ ’bout practice! We’re talking about a legend officially retiring.
The World Series closes its books with another Red Sox championship. Which team is built to return to the Fall Classic? And the guys go over all that has been the most asinine World Series ever.
In typical heel fashion, Mike defends a fellow buzz-saw. Is Dez Bryant receiving unjust criticism for his antics during Dallas’ loss to Detroit? Why is there a double standard between receivers and quarterbacks, when yelling at teammates?
Beware a lurking buzz-saw, and beware the Howitzer and the Buzz-Saw, as they conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
