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…
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…
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…
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…
