In this episode, Zach Joiner and Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley join Tom for a lively discussion about the hirings and firings of the early 2013 offseason…when they’re not distracted by other riveting topics! Such as: Blaine Gabbert’s McDonald’s skills, Manti T’eo, Why Jerry Jones became the Cowboys owner, the San Diego Super Chargers theme song, Rex Grossman’s Super Bowl appearance, and much, much more!
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.

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.
I’m sorry about the rushedness–it’s been a hectic week, so I’ve had less time than usual to ruminate on the games. I promise I’ll get to a proper intro soon, and will think more on my picks every week. (more…)
I know there are people out there, people who read columns like this, who look for reasons to consign the writers of columns like these as Homers.
