While commemorating and paying respects to a day that will forever live in the hearts of Americans, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo tear up another broadcast.
This edition, your favorite sports genius’ discuss a season ending injury for Derek Jeter? How does this effect the Yankees chances at crawling into a postseason birth? Will we ever hear these famous words again: “at short-stop, number 2, Derek Jeter, number 2″ (Bob Sheppard voice)? Mike explains why, even though losing Jeter won’t hurt the Yankees in 2013, he will definitely be back in 2014. An epic retrospective to the end of the Pittsburgh Pirates 20 year “streak” and their hopes down the stretch keep the baseball diamond the headline act.
With the fall season looming, football is here and making its presence felt already. What was up with the asinine ugliness of Week 1 in the NFL? Can the Eagles offense keep up their college track meet style all season long? If they do, how good is Philadelphia? On the flip side, after a bad home opening loss, how bad are the usually contending Steelers? Expect some other hot button NFL topics, as well as, the HBS NFL Pick ‘em Challenge.
Before bowing up a gold quality program, college football continues to spark much intrigue. Johnny Manziel and his polarizing “heel” self square off against AL-A-BAMA, in a pivotal show down. Who will come out on top?
Remember those lost on that faithful day of September 11, 2001. As our service men and women, our police force, and our firefighters, continue to conquer for us, the Howitzer and Buzz-saw bring a release of entertainment, by conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…
You’ll notice there’s no Monday Night Game. That’s because some years ago some church-type people got all bent out of shape because the NFL dared put football games on Christmas Eve…so we’re getting Monday off. Continue reading →
BAH, HUMBUG! Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo ring in the Christmas season and the new year in style. In their last show of 2012, your favorite sports geniuses go all over the sports gauntlet.
College basketball enters the program for the first time in awhile. Jim Boeheim’s 900th win is put into perspective, along with an update on the season to date. Has Duke already assured themselves a number one seed in the upcoming NCAA Tournament? What’s wrong with some other struggling giants?
From the college hardwood to the pros, the HBS brings you the next chapter in “As The Lakers Asininity Turns.” Does Pau Gasol have to be traded unless things turn around soon? Or will the impending return of Steve Nash be enough to mend their wounds?
While the Lakers are always dramatic, their soap opera doesn’t even hold a candle to the NFL’s New York Jets. Rex Ryan officially becomes the Buzz-Saw’s best friend for life with his decision to start Greg McElroy this week. Was this the right decision? Does Mark Sanchez have a future with the Jets? Will this finally send the message to Tebow Maniacs that it just ain’t happening for their hero? We can dream, right?
In addition to these topics, expect some more MLB off-season talk, most notably a reigning Cy Young winner being traded, Mike to continue to destroy George’s unfounded optimism about the NHL Lockout, as well as, the Week 16 edition of the second annual HBS NFL Pick’em Challenge.
Get those cookies and milk ready for Santa, put out the manger, light the menorah, or do whatever you people do. No matter what holiday you celebrate, just realize the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
Thanks to the farmers, it is now pitch black outside midway through the day. The hour gained on the clock is lost in annoyance. At least it means we are moving through the sports calendar. With the college football season nearing an end, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo are joined by Jess Stiver, owner of the “Land Thieves” blog. Stiver will discuss which teams have the inside track on the BCS and who will end up vying for the National Championship. His precious Oklahoma Sooners won’t be left out, as the resident HBS sports genius’ hope to persuade his squad to take it easy on their spiraling Mountaineers.
Following the interview, the real program gets underway! When we last heard from the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw they were busy dissecting the asininity that was the Lakers freakout session. After firing Mike Brown only 5 games into the season, can the darling franchise find it’s mojo again? Was rejecting a third Phil Jackson stint for Mike D’Antoni the right decision? Expect tons of eye rolling and loud noises, as the Buzz-Saw tends to be easily agitated.
Turn on the stove and watch the crock-pot simmer. The Major League Baseball offseason is already heating up! Clinching the title of most asinine organization in sports today, the Miami Marlins completely dismantled the Hispanic vibe they assembled, shipping their stars to the Blue Jays. Where do the Marlins go from here? Despite owning two World Series crowns, how bad are things down in Little Havana? On the flip side of the blockbuster trade, does the new additions make Toronto a contender in the always brutal AL East? While some are planning for 2013, others are receiving 2012 hardware. Did the voters get it right with the ROY, Cy Young’s, and MVP selections? Listen to Mike, he knows best.
