The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – The Path To Immortality

baseball-hof-class-2014
On the heels of all the holiday celebrating, including one of a Serbian variety, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo keep on bringing asininity and entertainment to the masses.

On this editon of the esteemed Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show, the Baseball Hall of Fame elects three new members. In an eternal cloud of controversy looming over baseball’s home of immortality, Cooperstown’s doors remains locked to past steroid users. Mike analyzes this year’s ballot and who he feels will receive the honor going forward. How can this mess be fixed? Are deserving canidates getting screwed, solely for a PED suspicion? Will it eventually become easier for the borderline guys? The Baseball Hall of Fame is surely asinine.

College Football has not only ended another season, it has also closed an era. Gone is the BCS. Florida State is your last BCS National Champion. What will the playoff format be like? How will the BCS era be remembered? And where does FSU stack up among every BCS National Champion?

Moving from college to the pros, Johnny Manziel has officially declared for the NFL Draft. Where will he go? Should he actually petition to avoid the Cleveland curse?

We are now all the way to the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs. Are some more upsets possible? Will home field advantage really be a big deal? Which teams do your favorite sports geniuses have advancing?

Finally, the Olympics are almost here. A focus is given to some interesting roster decisions for the favorite, Team Canada.

There’s not a holiday the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw can’t conquer, much like they conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Dawning Of An Asinine New Year

2014
A dawning of a new year is here! After such an asinine 2013, 2014 sure has a lot of work to do to. With hope for future asininity to come, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo celebrate keeping up the buffoon hating and ridiculous appreciating trend.

January not only means a new year, it also signals the NFL Playoffs. They recap the Week 17 craziness and preview of the post-season. Covering each Wild Card Round game, how much will home field advantage be a factor? Does a division champion, even with a worse record, deserve to be home? Which teams have the best shot to upset the top seeds if they should advance? And while some teams are dreaming of the Super Bowl, the most asinine franchises are looking for new leaders.

Hockey’s staple New Years Day event was a perfect example of what the Winter Classic can be? Is their hope for this same impact from future NHL outdoor events? Did the Red Wings get screwed with a horn stopping a Zetterberg breakaway in overtime?

Team USA was announced with some interesting omissions. Did the USA brass make the right roster decisions?

Here’ssss Johnnnnyyyy! That’s what Duke thought during Johnny Manziel’s miraculous comeback win for Texas A&M in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl. Was it his last college game? And finally, who has the edge to claim the National Championship?

It’s true every year, and not changing in 2014, the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer asininity, while conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Guessing A Motive

Philadelphia Eagles v Washington Redskins

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…

Trike House Party – Final Final Standings: Mike “The Buzz-Saw” Asti is your Champion

2013-golden-keg
Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley has forfeited his 2013 Golden Keg Championship. Asti pointed out that the week he missed had a lot more picks than the week Hyphen missed last week. Therefore, Kelen agreed to split the difference and still regain his 12 picks he was spotting Asti. Asti’s missed week: 22 picks. Hyphen’s missed week: 9 picks.  The difference: 13 picks. And that left him on the short end of the stick:

1. Mike “The Buzz-Saw” Asti 208 correct
2. Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley
204 correct
3. Anthony “Triple S” Sellers 71 correct (dropped out)
4. George “The Howitzer Gerbo 64 correct (dropped out)

Mike “The Buzz-Saw” Asti is now the first ever Golden Keg Championship repeat winner. Congratulations and we’re sure you’ll be back next year to defend your…um, keg.

Trike House Party – UPDATE!

Jeremy Langford, Corey BrownOn numerous occasions, Mike “The Buzz-Saw” Asti threatened Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley that he would figure out a way to make him miss a week of picking like he did early on.

Last week, he finally succeeded. From Yahoo:

We have added one more week to College Pick Em so you can keep the excitement going. There are lots of big games, so good luck and have fun.

When the last Trike House Party went up, there were no more games to be picked. Since Kelen didn’t pick and Asti did, it erased the 12 games Kelen was spotting him every week. So while Asti still didn’t win the Golden Keg Championship, there are new final standings.

1. Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley 217 correct
2. Mike “The Buzz-Saw” Asti 208 correct
3. Anthony “Triple S” Sellers 71 correct (dropped out)
4. George “The Howitzer Gerbo 64 correct (dropped out)

Just to make Asti feel good, he would’ve won if Kelen still had to spot him the 12 picks.  But that would’ve only worked if Kelen had picked and missed 7  to 9 of this week’s picks.

So Kelen is still our Champion this year, but if Asti had been nice enough to check to see if his friend was picking as well…he might have been a repeat Champion.

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Justice Over Drama

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…
