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…
Spring is in the air. And the sports world is in the midst of some spring cleaning of its own. College basketball’s madness has now been thrown in the closet, ushering golf and baseball to the main dresser drawer. Bored? Think again.
This weeks Howitzer and Buzz-saw Show, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer’ Gerbo discuss the National Championship Game between Louisville and Michigan, the significance of Rick Pitino’s second National Title to his legacy, the future of the Michigan program, and even how the the Fab Five should be handled with the sanctions officially lifted. There was another college basketball championship game – the women played one too, as Connecticut and head coach Geno Auriemma captured their 8th crown. Where does the accomplishment put Auriemma in comparison to overall great college coaches like Pat Summit and among the men elites like John Wooden, Coach K, and Adolph Rupp etc?
One of the most beautiful parts of Spring: THEEEE MASTERS! Golf’s biggest stage is here and so is the aged old question: Tiger or the field? How much much does Tiger Woods need this major, in his quest to break Jack Nicklaus’ record? Mike will try to remain calm this time (we said try…).
With the New York Knicks streaking and the Pittsburgh Penguins slumping, these two prominent franchises are the focus. How good are the Knicks? Should the Pens panic, dealing with another Crosby injury?
A recap of the first week of the 2013 Major League Baseball will conclude this edition of the HBS. The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw throw on their green jackets, while conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…
Smell the grass. Hear the crack of the bat. The countdown is over. Baseball season is now underway! This is their wheelhouse, as Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo go league to league, division to division, breaking down all that is the 2013 Major League Baseball season.
Can Posey and the Giants pitching lead San Francisco to a third World Series title in four years? Is it possible for Miguel Cabrera to follow a historic Triple Crown? How will the injury riddled Yankees fair? Will Bryce Harper emerge to even another level in his sophomore campaign? A better Mike “WAR” Trout? Did the Blue Jays Marlins pilfering splash filled off-season make them the AL East favorite? All these questions and much more will be answered. Oh yeah, and is this FINALLY the year the Pittsburgh Pirates end their sub-500 record long losing streak?! Eh… Not so fast.
Baseball may be back, but the rest of the sports world is not yet taking a backseat. Atlanta is primed to host college basketball’s Final Four weekend. Louisville, hoping to win for hometown kid, Kevin Ware, who will be there recovering from his gruesome broken leg, squares off against cinderella Wichita State. And Syracuse dances with Michigan, making this the Wolverines’ first trip since the Fab Five days. Who will cut down the nets and which team will stand tall as national champion? George even rejoices a rare victory in a competition over Mike. Hey, even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in awhile. We also can’t forget about a buffoon head coach being fired!
NHL’s Trade Deadline came and went without much fanfare. Despite a lacking of excitement, some big moves were made. Who were the winners and more importantly, and asininely, who were the losers?
Baseball brings the magic. Magic creates conquering. The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw are magicians, by conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…
