The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Straight Clowin’ Yo

Straight clowin’ is the phrase of the week. And those words perfectly describe the asininity of some recent news. The circus that has loomed over Major League Baseball for over a decade just won’t go away. Another steroid scandal is plaguing America’s past time. Will star players like Ryan Braun and Alex Rodriguez suffer 100 game suspensions, as a result of lying about PED use? Is it wise for Bud Selig and company to be in full fledged attack mode, unlike their previous methods in handling steroids? Do players truly have a deterrent, if the Hall of Fame is not on their minds?

All the straight clowin’ in baseball has overshadowed the ongoing climb for championships in both basketball and hockey. In the NBA, we have our final two. The San Antonio Spurs look to put another stamp on their dynasty meet the defending champion Miami Heat and their hype machine. Can LeBron get the job done, if his fellow “Big 3″ mates don’t join the party? How will his legacy be affected with another Finals loss? Who is the true favorite in this series? And some Spurs praising will be at a premium.

While the NBA is at the Finals stage, the NHL is still looking to determine the matchup for Lord Stanley’s Cup. What happened to the Penguins? Seriously. What the HELL happened?! How will this debacle and complete choke job shape the future of the Pittsburgh franchise? That discussion could go on for days.

Straight clowin’ is a way of life for the fools and buffoons out there. The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer straight clowin’ and sports radio, one day, at a time…

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Misguided Hate & Newfound Love

You think you’re smart? You think you know sports? Well Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo are here to say you aren’t and you don’t.

In another grand installment of their prowess, your favorite sports genius’ tear apart several asinine scandals and the funk that has been the playoff of both the NBA and the NHL.

Notre Dame gives their athlete freak of a quarterback the boot for “poor academic judgment.” Hear Mike try to explain how the always hated Fighting Irish have actually earned some real praise for their unique handling of a star that screwed up. Rutgers University takes the asinine drama cake with yet another soap opera. How could this have been prevented? And how bad was this all bungled up, just months after closing the chapter on the Mike Rice debacle? Be embarrassed New Jersey!

Over to two sports still very much in progress, the NBA and NHL are ever so close to crowning champions. San Antonio lingers, waiting for their opponent in the Finals. How should Tim Duncan and his Spurs be viewed by history, now searching for a perfect 5 for 5 mark in the finals since 1999? Are the Heat in trouble, in what has become a grueling series with the Pacers? Would Indiana or Miami make for a better championship round?

The NHL is down to its final four: its last four champions. When the LA Kings are clicking, can they be beat? Can Pittsburgh masque their weaknesses to complete, what seems like a destined title season? There’s even some Game 7 Buzz-Sawing.

John Tortorella is out in New York. Was this the right move? Torts, need a new agent or defense attorney? If so, Mike is available.

Action and entertainment (and analogies) are always at a premium, as the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports, radio, one day, at a time…

A new James Bond film hit the theaters last year, which means a new edition of Gilt Edged Bonds (ironically also recorded last year).  Join Tom and Derrick as they welcome Russ ‘I liked Quantum of Boredom’ Anderson to dissect the Bond Rubber Match for Daniel Craig.  Does this new entry prove that the Reign Of Craig shakes with awesomeness or is stirred with suckitude?  Why is the pet name The Boys Outta Brooklyn have for his second film inaccurate?  How does this Bond stack up against the classic versions of the show?  You know you don’t want to waste good scotch, so get to clicking (and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter at @BITDShow)!

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Champions & Chumps (Guest: Rich Miller)

The playoffs are the season for breakout performers, eternal moments, and dreams turned into reality. Conversely, the playoffs are also the season for disappointment, eternal shame, and nightmares fueled by choke jobs to last a lifetime. A Buzz-Saw tends to appreciate the latter.

Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo dive right into the NHL and NBA playoffs, with a focus, on not only the teams still vying for a championship, but also the teams that are left with that bitter taste all offseason.

Your favorite sports genius’ are not alone on this installment, as they welcome Rich Miller of ESPN 970 Pittsburgh to the HBS ring. Rich coves the Penguins year round. And will give his insight on the Pittsburgh squad, dealing with soap opera like drama and pressure during their quest to sip from hockey’s holy grail.

Are the Red Wings capable of knocking off the Blackhawks, in another battle of historic rivals? How will New York vs. Boston look on the ice? And have the Los Angeles Kings switched into that 2012 playoff unbeatable swag?

As for those setting tee times on the golf course, the Toronto Maple Leafs are STILL one of sports darling cursed franchises (much to Mike’s enjoyment), and Alexander Ovechkin wins the honor of asinine buffoon of the week.

Over on the NBA side of things, did the Grizzlies truly earn their first ever conference finals trip or was it aided by a depleted Thunder effort? Realistically, is there any possible way Miami doesn’t repeat as champions? Can anyone but Carmelo score on the Knicks?

Tiger Tiger Woods ya’ll. Tiger is the 2013 Players champion. What does this mean in his pursuit of majors? Sergio Garcia whined to make the TW celebration that much better too.

They never choke. They NEVER disappoint. The Howitzer and Buzz-saw always conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
