Living life is always an adventure and always asinine for Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo. Learn about their appreciation of a reopening of a famous pizza place and George’s stamina issues mixed with Mike’s usual comedic stylings. That’s all before the sports talk even begins to blast your ears.
This week, the focus is highlighted by some New England Patriot drama. Aaron Hernandez, a member of the class filled and character driven franchise, is involved in a murder investigation?! Well, that’s what the reports are. With the little we currently know, is there already enough to warrant a league punishment? Should Robert Kraft and the Patriots feel pressure to sanction one of their own, for fear of hypocrisy? Can they remain contenders with so many offensive weapons in question?
Next up, the NBA and NHL seasons are not over yet. The Chicago Blackhawks appear in trouble, now down in the Stanley Cup Finals to Boston. What needs changed for Chicago? And most importantly what is the deal with Marian Hossa sitting out a critical Game 3 loss? Lucky for you, the HBS is home to the leader of the Hossa fan club. Mike takes his rightful place as hockey’s most polarizing figure defense attorney.
A blockbuster deal that even included coach Doc Rivers has been nixed. Your favorite sports genius’ try to fix the asininity that has become the Boston Celtics and determine if the Clippers made the right decision.
LeBron and the Heat’s heroics to force a deciding Game 7 in the NBA Finals take place mid-show. Enjoy the jubilation and evil grinning of the Buzz-Saw, while the Howitzer sulks.
You think you know, but you have no idea. Just keep being amazed, as the Howitzer and Buzz-saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
Tom and Derrick say farewell to one of their heroes by inducting the great special effects animator Ray Harryhausen. Join the Boys Outta Brooklyn as they discuss their favorite moments from his films, and why there’s something that makes stop-motion animation better than CGI. Plus, the horror of the pentapod and Honey Boo Boo! You don’t want to be terrorized by the giant ostrich thingy, so get to clicking. (And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter at @BITDShow.)
The time is now. The time is now to bow down to the greatness that is Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George ‘the Howitzer” Gerbo. This is also the time to bow down to some greatness in the sports world. Both the NHL and NBA are days away from crowning a new champion.
Can the greatness that is LeBron James be reborn, as his Heat attempt to climb back into the NBA Finals? After a demoralizing 33 point shellacking in Game 3, how can LBJ turn things around? And will he ever get the necessary assistance from his other “Big 3″ members? Mike remains on the Heat heel bus and will explain why there is still reason for optimism for Miami.
While there’s been plenty of intrigue and drama on the hardwood, the ice is not to be denied. Game 1 of the NHL’s Stanley Cup Finals is in the books and what a game it was. Original Six foes, two major markets, an abundance of talent, oh and Game 1 took 3 overtimes to conclude. To put that into perspective, there’s never been a 4 OT Stanley Cup Final game. I’d say we are headed for an epic clash to sip from sports oldest trophy.
Did the Bruins squander the series already, by allowing a Blackhawk comeback? How can Rask look so outstanding against one group of superstars (Pittsburgh), yet beatable against another?
Not to be forgotten in the midst of epic postseasons, Major League Baseball is back in the news. No, not another steroids story. Brawls and the Dodgers seem to go hand in hand these days. What will the fallout be from the recent Los Angeles – Arizona slugfest on the diamond?
Another gold quality HBS ends with a debate on the Washington Redskins team name. To say Mike will heel turn is a grave understatement.
The time is now to crown champions, like the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw, because they conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
