Thomas and I are back with the third issue of The Slobberknocker Chronicles! In this episode, we talk our thoughts on the Hell In A Cell PPV, I breathe a sigh of relief that Brock Lesnar didn’t show up at the PPV, Thomas mourns the loss of regular Funkasaurus, we try to make sense of the coming weeks leading up to the Royal Rumble, and we debate whether or not WWE really has the balls to take the WWE Title off television. More exciting than Raw, SmackDown, and John Cena in various undress, so press play!

Hey Sandy, here’s a big screw you from the Howitzer and Buzz-saw! On the heels of another natural disaster, that rocked the Eastern half of the country, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo say pick that head up and get those spirits back to full vigor! Don’t let some cranky chick bring you down! Hurricane or not, she doesn’t want to be on the sharp blades of the Buzz-Saw’s bad side.
Another NBA season is here and this time with a bit of a different feel. LeBron James is now a champion. Let that set in for a moment. LBJ has a ring. How will the now crowned king and his team fair with even more swag? Can anyone stand in the Heat’s quest to continue their journey for “not 1, not 2, not 6?” Over in the West, the defending conference champions decided to avoid a season long drama and down size sending James Harden to Houston. Was this a wise move for a franchise that was just on the brink of a title last season? How will Harden do in his new role with the Rockets as THE MAN long term? The Lakers are still cruising in neutral. What’s wrong in La La Land? Are they still a threat and how long before this All-Star team of sorts finds their stroke?
Dust of those sneakers and get on the court. The HBS takes to the hardwood to set up another NBA season of slams, jams, asinine soap opera like sagas, LeBron, Kobe, and more LeBron.
Another week in the second annual HBS NFL Pick’em Challenge continues. Get this?! The Buzz-Saw is now playing with a lead! We know him as a pestering never say die comeback beast, but what will happen with this functioning lunatic going at it ahead? George may need to complete a hail marry pass to avoid Mike’s blitz.
It’s time for another Review Episode, where the Guys Outta Brooklyn take a look at a quintet of movies that range from the brand-extending Bourne Legacy to the brand expanding Expendables 2 and the brand imitating Hong Kong curio The Bullet Vanishes. Plus Tom’s Tales Of Working the Licensed Fiction Mines, Derrick’s research for a new Sinbad tale, and the man with the super-power of hair (Hi, Ian!). You know you don’t want to walk from the window to the wall without getting low, so get to clicking!

I’ve been waiting to write this article since the end of the NBA Finals in June. I was gonna write final NBA rankings, but that seemed pointless considering the Heat had just been crowned champions. I was gonna do an offseason ranking but that became pointless once all the player movement began. And I was getting ready for work this morning thinking I had all the time in the world, when SportsCenter reminded me that the season started one week from today. Continue reading →
When putting together a list of the Buzz-Saw’s pet-peeves, it’s almost easier to first include what doesn’t annoy Mike Asti. Dumb people, ignorant people, unnecessary traffic, and we can’t forget about buffoonery. Unfortunately, these are all unavoidable occurrences. How can he maintain the functioning part in his functioning lunatic status under these harsh conditions? Easy! Brush his shoulders off. Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo explain how this relates to the sports world today.
Despite entering the World Series the favorite, the Detroit Tigers had to watch Pablo Sandoval join an illustrious group of names like Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson, and Albert Pujols. Not bad for a guy in the midst of an individual career decline. Sandoval smashed three home runs in game one of the 2012 World Series. The win, not only put “Kung Fu Panda” in some heavy history and gave San Francisco a 1-0 series lead, it also eliminated Detroit’s “Ace Advantage” of Justin Verlander. What do the Tigers now need to do in order to not let a championship slip from their fingers? Brush their shoulders off!
NBA Commissioner David Stern has announced he will retire in early 2014. Where does Stern rank among the all-time sports commissioners? How can “The Association” still thrive without his leadership? Brush it’s shoulders off!
The New York Islanders are relocating to Jay-Z country and moving to Brooklyn. Is this good for hockey when a franchise with four Stanley Cup banners and an abundance of retired numbers hanging from the rafters is forced to move? Should the Islanders change their image to better fit the Brooklyn culture? What do you do in Brooklyn? Brush your shoulders off.
