The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – WrestleMania NY/NJ (XXIX!) Preview (Guest: Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley)

WrestleMania is in the air and the “grandest stage of them all” is poised for another monumental event. With WrestleMania 29 only days away, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti welcomes a familiar wrestling talk foe – Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley, back to the HBS ring.

The ultimate media “heel” grapples with the ultimate media “baby face” (even more so than the Howitzer), as they discuss everything and anything going on in World Wrestling Entertainment, building up to the culmination of another WWE season. What do they think of the card? How does it stack up with past Wrestlemanias? How could this show have been set up differently? What will be the outcomes of each match and what will they lead to in the coming months? Will the buried and demoted stars return to the main event ranks post-mania?

John Cena and The Rock in a Wrestlemania 28 re-match. This time for the gold. Will it be better than last year’s match? Mike surely hopes so. Is their rivalry already stale? Is this now the perfect opportunity to FINALLY have Cena become a bad guy?! Maybe one day Mike and Kelen will agree on this age old wrestling argument. Not likely.

CM Punk challenges “The Streak” and the Undertaker defends Paul Bearer’s honor. Thoughts on the streak in general. And a guaranteed passionated debate on if the use of Paul Bearer’s death has been over the line. Vince McMahon loves the polarizing controversy and so does the Buzz-saw.

A long standing Randy Orton heel turn prediction will be reiterated throughout the broadcast, as the Howitzer and Buzz-saw Show welcomes WRESTLEMANIA to the program.

Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti is a legendary conquer. Like most Hall of Fame conquers, the Buzz-Saw doesn’t “job” for anyone. As he does with each breath on the mic, the Buzz-Saw conquers sports radio, one day, at a time…

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Nonsensical Reality

In a sports world that is always humorous and rarely makes any sense, some of the news of the past week actually provided some shock, asinine shock, but shock none the less. Who better to discuss asinine sports news than Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo?

Look no further than the madness…in a tournament always dominated by madness, the 2013 NCAA Tournament has become perhaps the most maddening in history. Some 12 over 5′s – sure. A 14 over a 3 – alright. A 15 over a 2 – damn. Almost a couple 16′s over 1′s – wow. And that was just the first weekend. There’s still some usual suspects around, but they’re joined by La Salle, Wichita State, and FLORIDA GULF COAST?! A program not even in existence a decade ago is in the Sweet 16! March Madness is alive and well.

While the on-court action is exciting, the off-court college basketball stories are equally as entertaining. Eliminated UCLA and Minnesota (ironically the team that ousted the Bruins) fired their prominent stellar head coaches. Which one of these moves was more nonsensical and ridiculous? Where do these programs go from here?

Tiger Tiger Woods, ya’ll! The man, the myth, the legend has finally reclaim his throne at top of the golf mountain. Does Tiger Woods spot as golf’s number one player in the world mean he’s back? Mike angrily explains how this entire notion is unreasonable at this point in Tiger’s career.

A hockey team is in the midst of a historic streak AGAIN and the NHL trade season has officially begun. The Pittsburgh Penguins and the rumor mill conclude with a hockey legend another gold star show.

Nonsensical reality may be abundant, but the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer regardless, by conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – The Ides Of Madness


Madness. One word says it all. For some boring fools, March just means spring and warmer weather (or so they say). For the rest of us, it means the most madness filled sports month of the year. Professional athletes take a backseat to college kids. It’s the NCAA Tournament. It’s the place dreams come true, eternal memories are formed, hearts are broken, a nation unifies, and Davids and Goliaths are on an equal stage.

Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo do what the rest of the country is doing, they fill out their brackets. Your favorite sports genius’ go through the entire field and give their picks. Based on Mike’s high winning percentage in competitions against George, can the Howitzer pull off a sports pick’em equivalent to a 16 over a 1 seed? On second thought, we’ll be nice, 15 over a 2… At least that’s been accomplished before.

What’s their Final Four look like? Do elite programs like Louisville and Indiana have enough to go the distance? Will a year of improbable upsets continue? Can Gonzaga, now with expectations, finally get the job done and make a deep run? Is Duke vulnerable by carrying several disappointing losses? Is Miami (FL.) poised to prove themselves? Does the Michigan bandwagon have any room left? Which low seeded teams have that dark horse potential?

George always knows he’s risking unbearable bragging and bravado any time he enters into a competitive venue against the Buzz-Saw.

We now all prepare for that one shining moment. You know what? Screw the corny stuff. Let the games begin!

The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer madness and sports radio, one day, at a time…

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Like A Puff Of White Smoke


Like a puff of white smoke, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo have arrived to send shockwaves. If white smoke can precede the introduction of a pope, why can’t it present sports media’s most dominating duo?

While Catholics are celebrating a shakeup, some NFL fans are mourning the chaos that has been the recent player movement. Baltimore’s chances to repeat as Super Bowl champions has gone from difficult to next to impossible, after losing several key components, such as Anquan Boldin and the man groomed to replace Ray Lewis, Dannell Ellerbe. The Ravens haven’t been alone in experiencing an exodus. Pittsburgh saw Mike Wallace and Rashard Mendenhall depart for greener pastures. Percy Harvin is now a Seahawk and Wes Welker jumped from Tom Brady and Patriots to Peyton Manning and the Broncos. What does all this activity mean for the new landscape of power in the NFL? Can perennial powers contend without their star player? Are these players enough to push teams over the hump?

Despite March Madness, a time for basketball craziness, being surrounded by football news, the hardwood insanity is not to be denied. How will be the conference tournaments impact the NCAA Tournament selections? What squads can surprise and leapfrog off of the bubble? There will even be a retrospective tribute paid to the Big East, as the last true Big East Tournament continues. Mike will try to contain George’s tears.

Finally, the beast Lakers Dwight Howard is here. What will his pounding of the franchise he scorned do for LA’s playoff quest? Turn away Magic fans (if there are still any), Mike will be mean to you.

Team USA is soaring in the World Baseball Classic. What would a United States WBC Title mean? All others go up in smoke, while the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
