The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Riding The Lying Train

ryan-braun
No ones favorite sports topic is back. Yes, while it’s asinine, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo don’t even appreciate discussing this. Performance enhancing drugs. Steroids.

The cloud that continues to loom over sports, most notably baseball, just won’t go away. Major League Baseball officially handed down its first punishment in regards to the latest PED scandal, the Biogenesis lab. Ryan Braun, the 2011 NL MVP, has been suspended for the remainder of the season. What impact will this have on America’s past time? Can Braun ever repair his image? Is there enough of a deterrent for players to be clean? When will this ever be OVER? All those questions will be answered. Wait. Who are we kidding? No, they won’t. Some of these questions might never even have answers.

From one tainted superstar to another. With Braun suffering his fate, is Alex Rodriguez next? What will A-Rod’s punishment be, with apparently more evidence? Are the Yankees actually running a conspiracy against him?

All the steroid asininity is not the only baseball talk of the show. MLB’s trade deadline is fast approaching and a couple deals have already gone down. Which teams are truly contenders?

In an almost wall to wall baseball program, another gold quality edition of the HBS closes with a career that will never end and mullet that won’t stop growing, Jaromir Jagr.

It’s a soap opera. Tune in for another edition of the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show, as it conquers sports radio, one day, at a time…

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Act Buffoon, Think Later

pouncey-brothers-free-hernandez
Herm Edwards preaches a valuable philosophy to athletes across the entire sports world. It’s simple: his “Don’t Press Send” lesson teaches athletes to think first before acting or tweeting buffoonery to the masses.

While most people would probably prefer if more actually followed this and listened to Herm. In contrast, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo are thrilled each and every time someone does not.

During this edition of the now famous and renowned HBS, your favorite sports genius’ banter about asininity, as only they can.

Aaron Hernandez’s former teammates sending a very public message of support to the once All-Pro tight end awaiting his murder trial. Should Maurkice and Mike Pouncey receive any punishment for rocking “Free Hernandez hats in a tweeted picture? If not from the NFL, should their respective teams get involved? As par for his heel course, I’m sure Mike’s thoughts will shock George and be agreed with by few.

Johnny Manziel resurrected an historic program and took the college football landscape by storm last season, so much so he became the first freshman ever to win the prestigious Heisman Trophy. Ever since his phenomenal year on the field ended, Johnny “Football” has done what most college kids do: party, drink, and stay up all night. Will his antics have any effect on the 2013 season and is too much being made of him acting as most guys his age do?

An MLB mid-season award segment and a discussion if the new FOX Sports 1 will truly give the sports media mothership, ESPN, a run for its money round out another gold quality program.

What’s always great and never asinine? The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show, that’s what. Always conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…

One of the last things Ashley and I did before she moved was watch all seven seasons of the popular 90’s sitcom Boy Meets World. It was one of our favorite shows growing up. Definitely top 10 for me and potentially top 5 of all-time. Closer to number 1 for Ashley. Continue reading

The July 15, 2013 edition of WWE Monday Night Raw was one of the top-to-bottom most enjoyable three-hour programs since they switched to 3 hours last summer. There were two big reasons for that. The first was because they were in front of a hot, enthusiastic crowd. New York is considered the “home market” for WWE and they were in the new Barclays Center (home of the Brooklyn Nets) for only the second time. It was the first time for Monday Night Raw.

Artifacts From The Past: Reliving the Pokémon Glory Days

Holographics: More Valuable than Gold!

Last week during spring cleaning, my wife and I happened upon an old deck of Pokémon cards that I had stashed away for safe keeping. I pulled off the horribly dry-rotted rubber band and fanned the cards out in my hand, letting the memories come rushing back. Most of the cards were browning on the edges and a few of the holographic cards were stuck on the backs of other cards, but most of them were still in relatively decent condition. I saved my wife the spiel that I knew would have her eyes glazing over – how I had formulated my deck to be one of the most competitive in town, how the mechanics of the cards interplay to form the basis for my strategy, and how I had spent countless hours trading and tweaking – but it did get the wheels in my head turning. It made me want to play again! Continue reading

Anyone Hear About This?: Atheists Get A Monument; Christians Get Peeved

Atheist_Monument-018b5
A quick recap of what happened Saturday, June 29: A group of atheists wanted to tear down a stone monument of the Ten Commandments in Starke, Florida. The atheists failed, but got something else. They got to place a monument to state their beliefs. Which is to say…nothing, they don’t believe in anything, duh. Of course, in a turn of events, there was a group of Christians out protesting them. It’s rather ironic, because usually it’s the atheists that protesting Christian monuments. Continue reading
