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…
The summer sports lull is about to end and the fever pitch is waiting in the wings. With fall on the horizon, that can only mean one thing: a new NFL season is almost here. Mike “the Buzz-saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo bring a gridiron feel back to the HBS. As training camp ends and the pre-season action begins, who are the AFC and NFC favorites? What off-season moves will have the biggest impact on the field? Welcome to another season of record setting performances, emerging stars, and Roger Goodell asininity!
Before your favorite sports geniuses tackle the NFL, they take care of the gauntlet in London. With the Olympics nearing an end, what has been the moment that will stand the test of time? Is USA Basketball all but assured another gold medal? And Usain Bolt’s blistering speed will be put into perspective. It’s a bird, it’s a plane, IT’S A BOLT OF LIGHTNING IN HUMAN FORM!
The Major League Baseball stretch run and some controversial comments from a pro wrestling icon will surely keep this program boiling all broadcast long. The Buzz-Saw says to Kevin Nash, heel recognizes heel. The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports media, one jackknife power bomb, at a time….
On the heels of arguably the best show since the HBS’ inception, can Mike “the Buzz-saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo stay at the top? The platform this week certainly calls for more of the norm – pure radio gold. With the MLB trade deadline now having passed, who were the winners and losers? How did the extra Wild Card spot and more contending teams impact baseball’s annual roster shakeup? Will the waiver wire allow any other major moves to take place before playoff depth charts are set? The Phillies have placed Cliff Lee on waivers but require teams to shell out all of the remaining $97 million straight cash homie left on his contract. Will a contending team shell out the loot and earn themselves the right to lose in the World Series?
Michael Phelps now owns 20 Olympic medals during his illustrious career (16 Gold). Is he the greatest Olympian of all-time? In other much more asinine Olympic news, the USA basketball team is dominating on the hardwood. No, that’s not the news. What is? Apparently squad leaders Kobe Bryant and LeBron James feel their 2012 incarnation could defeat the legendary 1992 “Dream Team.” I repeat Kobe and LBJ think they can beat Magic, Michael and company. The Buzz-saw’s response: HAHAHAHAHAHA!
Finally, get those football juices flowing, as “The Boys of Fall” are gearing up for another NFL season. Unfortunately, some major networks don’t care. Their only interest seems to be a backup quarterback/ special teams player. Sound asinine? Oh it surely is. Mike will even force George to revisit a Hall of Fame debate he knows will spark a fire storm. The Howitzer and Buzz-saw Show is Gold Medal quality, as it conquers sports radio, one day, at a time..
When I woke up this morning, it dawned on me (and yes, I did wake up at dawn!) that the 2012 Summer Olympics are fast approaching. What made it evident was a picture of the Men’s USA Olympic Basketball Team that showed up on my Facebook newsfeed. (more…)
