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…
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…
