Netflix Streaming may be the greatest thing to happen to movie fans since VHS, but there’s so much to see that The Boys Outta Brooklyn enlisted the aid of that Instant Depths videonaut Adam Orchekowski to help our listeners discover the gems hidden within that service. Along the way, the trio celebrate The Kids In The Hall, Tim Roth, The Apple, DC Animation and so much more! It’s an hour plus of great film conversation you don’t want to miss. You know you don’t want to become a chicken, so get to clicking (and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter at @BITDShow)!
It’s a whole new world these days. A world that revs up the engines for sports talk. A world that is much more accepting, even amongst the sports community, but also a world with tons of buffoonery for everyone. Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo run through this bizarre world with immense destruction and entertainment at a premium.
Major League Baseball, usually hesitant to change, has announced a new instant replay system. This new policy is stemming from mass controversy over pivotal calls in the playoffs and key games the past few seasons. It will involve managers receiving challenges, hoping to take away all the flack of the umpires. While this sounds wonderful, is there a devil’s advocate side to this coin? How will a replay system in baseball be advanced over the years?
It wouldn’t be NFL training camp if there wasn’t asinine drama. The Washington Redskins franchise is rolling in drama that would be worthy of any soap opera. Robert Griffin III and Mike Shanahan have a different of opinion on how RGIII’s recovery should be handled. Why is this all being way overblown? Is there a right and wrong? Maybe both coach and player are actually right and acting in the expected manner.
Professional wrestling is even discussed, as WWE star Darren Young is now openly gay. One half of the Prime Time Players tag team has come out to the world. There’s been openly gay professional wrestlers in the past, but this marks the first one to be active during his announcement. Will this be used as part of a future storyline? Any chances this is actually a “work?” Mike explains how this wouldn’t have been possible in previous, more not breaking character obsessed eras.
Despite a whole new world, the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw continue to shock the world, by conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…
I missed most of Raw this week. It was mostly intentional but I turned it on in time to see the aftermath of the Brock Lesnar/CM Punk confrontation. I immediately started texting my friend Erik, asking him to please tell me why my favorite wrestler (person) in the world was bleeding. Continue reading
Alex Rodriguez may not feel it’s the right time or place to be totally honest, but Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo have an inability to be anything other than truth tellers. Major League Baseball has officially handed A-Rod a 211 game suspension for his role in the most recent PED scandal. To the surprise of no one this is being appealed. Did MLB get this right? Where does this latest “A-Rod playing while fighting suspension” circus rank on the asininity scale? How will all this play out? How is the infamous Curse of the Howitzer wrapped around everything A-Rod vs MLB? Johnny Damon even creeps back on the scene inadvertently diminishing accomplishments he was apart of.
The continued A-Rod story wasn’t the only asinine sports of the week. Johnny Manziel cemented himself as a buffoon, after news broke that he may have sold his autograph for money, an NCAA violation. If true, should Johnny Football be suspended, or maybe even ban, from all of the up-coming 2013 season? It’s widely known the NCAA has some ridiculous rules. This whole mess has ignited the never ending “should college athletes be paid?” debate.
Preseason football is here! Excited? I know, we aren’t either. With the new NFL season quickly approaching, teams are back to work and all the offseason drama is behind them. Or is it? As Riley Cooper and his n-bombing self returns to training camp, another much more prominent receiver did some tongue lashing of his own. Wes Welker, now with the Broncos, informed the media he wasn’t exactly the biggest Bill Belichick fan during his tenure in New England. Oh boy! Mike loves this stuff. He even predicted it once upon a time.
It’s a fight for their lives, as the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
Garbage day. Maybe one day I’ll actually get back to putting it out the night before instead of getting up at the buttcrack the day of to do it. Continue reading
What is it that makes poker so alluring? Is it the game itself, the psychological warfare between tables full of people? Or is it simply the money one can obtain just by sitting at a table throwing a few measly chips around? Continue reading
Bobby Nash sits down with Tom for a rousing discussion of…well, all things Bobby Nash. Bobby explains how he got into writing and the process he went through to get Evil Ways published. He blames Sean Taylor for the creation of Rick Ruby and The Ruby Files and Bobby and Tom talk at length about the Domino Lady and Honey West! 50 minutes of pure writer-y goodness, don’t delay, press play!
Dropping bombs and taking names. Well N-bombs and taking names of people offended by you, that is. At least that’s the life of Riley Cooper these days. The Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver got himself in a heap of trouble, after video of him shouting a racial slur at a Kenny Chesney concert recently. Mike Vick wants to him to be given a second chance. Did Vick, someone who has been awarded many second chances (cough, dog fighting, cough), have to say this, or is he really as forgiving as his words dictate? What are Cooper’s other teammates feelings towards him now? Do we need to hear from Chip Kelly about this? It’s political incorrectness, and you know Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo enjoy all that is not PC.
From one buffoon to some others. Major League Baseball is negotiating with Alex Rodriguez on his up-coming PED punishment. BUT Bud Selig isn’t happy with just any punishment. Baseball’s commissioner has an axe to grind and is calling for a lifetime banishment for A-Rod. Mike explains how overreaching like this may actually hurt the game more. With no precedent for banning someone for life based for performance enhancing drug use and involvement in such scandals, is it even possible an eternal ban would stick upon appeal?
Separate from the forever cloud looming over America’s past time, the trade deadline has come and gone. Or should I say was never there in the first place? Few big names changed squads. Why was this? Should some sellers have been more active? Do any of the contenders, namely Pittsburgh, deserve any criticism for a lack of moves?
We conclude another gold quality broadcast with a special buzz-sawing session about why college football pre-season rankings DO matter and why the idiots who think they’re irrelevant make the world go ’round. The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show conquers sports radio, one day, at a time…
In this new feature, the writer attempts to get to the point in 500 words or less. Today, I take on the CW’s new show Capture. Continue reading
The Boys Outta Brooklyn mark the passing of one of the greatest genre writers ever to work a typewriter by posthumously inducting Richard Matheson into The Hall of Great, Great Men. Join Tom and Derrick as they discuss key films both inspired by and written by Matheson, talk about the way he helped bring horror fiction into the living room and gives out some writing advice. You don’t want to be chased around by some freaking Zuni Fetish Doll, so get to clicking (and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter at @BITDShow)!
