The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Kvetching Draft Asininity (Guests: Scott Carasik, Alex Wiederspiel, & Ethan Hammerman)

nfl-draft
Some celebrate Christmas, some celebrate Hanukkah, others celebrate the National Football League’s annual draft, as their most special “holiday” of the calendar year. Mike ‘the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer’ Gerbo welcome the Kvetching Draftniks guys to the HBS ring. Scott Carasik, Alex Wiederspiel, and Ethan Hammerman spout, or should I say, kvetch, all the knowledge imaginable on the 2013 NFL Draft.

With the Darrelle Revis New York Jets era now officially over (sorry Alex), how does this trade impact the rest of the draft. And what is the future of Revis, now a Tampa Bay Buccaneer, as well as, the team he left behind?

Is Geno Smith truly worthy of a high draft pick, or is he benefiting from a lack of quarterback depth? Are the Minnesota Vikings and Manti Te’o headed towards a perfect marriage? Who will be the diamonds in the rough? Every draft can alter the leagues landscape for decades. For every Shannon Sharpe late round gem, there’s a Ryan Leaf or Tony Mandarich to wreck havoc on a franchise.

Apparently JaMarcus Russell has decided to put down the “purple drank” and attempt a comeback. Where does this rank on the asinine richter scale? Off the charts is a possible answer. Who are the potential overhyped 2013 class draft busts?

The Kvetching Draftniks conquer the NFL Draft, while the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw continue to conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – An Asinine New Year!

fsu

It’s a new year, yet the HBS is still here! Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo say goodbye to 2012 and welcome in An Asinine New Year – 2013. While 2012 set a pretty high bar for asininity in the sports world, 2013 is already getting to work.

Arguably the worst college football bowl season in recent memory continues. What is to blame for these lack luster games and matchups? Will the remaining BCS contests and National Championship Game save this miserable post-season?

With the NFL regualr season now over, it’s time to look ahead to the playoffs. Before that can be done, some important businees needs taken care of. Mike’s 2012 HBS NFL Pick’em championship banner raising ceremony will take place. Once the champagne is popped and the fireworks are finished, Mike and George will give their Wild Card Round picks and even attempt to place the proper blame on the teams that just missed the cut, what their futures will hold, and where the fired head coaches may end up.

After all the football talk, there are some signs for optimism in the NHL labor negociations. The owners and NHL Players Association are actually talking! Not to sound like a bimbo pre-teen female, but OMG! OMG! What does this mean? Will the season be saved? Or is the Buzz-Saw’s hell, fire, and brimstone reality going to come crashing down on the Howitzer’s thoughts of butterflies, rainbows, and a return of hockey?

FYI: Mike still plans to be an unbearable, arrogant, witty, sarcastic prick in 2013. Sorry, if you weren’t a fan before, you will remain displeased. Hey, at least George will be around put him in check (if that’s possible). They conquered 2012 and now embark on a journey of conquering 2013′s sports radio, one day at a time….

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Victims Of Self Destruction

NIO-Orange-Bowl-

Back from their two week hiatus, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo are ready to explode with pent up aggression built up on the sports world. A lot has happened since the last time you heard from your favorite sports genius’. Your ears can end their depression. The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show has returned!

As usual and much to the Howitzer’s dismay, another Buzz-Saw prediction came true. Notre Dame finished undefeated and is in the National Championship Game. The Irish will square off with Alabama for the title. Who will take home the crown and did Alabama crawling out of the Georgia game give the Notre Dame faithful some hope? Outside of the championship, the rest of the BCS isn’t exactly filled with instant classics and intrigue. Northern Illinois crashed the party. Was NIU truly deserving of a BCS honor? Mike and George go over the college football bowl picture and give their Heisman votes. Why doesn’t George just listen to Mike? He’s always right!

The sport with the busiest off-season is in the midst of meetings to deal with the future, while a dark cloud keeps the past a focus. There’s been some player movement, yes. But that goes on the back burner, as Mike covers the most controversial ballot in Hall of Fame history.

As directed by the one and only Kobe Bryant, Mike and George “put on their big boy pants” and tackle the soap opera that is the Los Angeles Lakers season. Will Mike D’Antoni ever mature? Can Pau “Mr. Sensitive” Gasol fit in this system? Can Kobe be interviewed without scowling at every reporter? God, we hope not. This asinine team is just too much fun to watch implode.

We left. We came back. Mike still hates everyone. And the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show still conquers sports radio, one day, at a time….

And because I hate that stupid LA Tech/SJSU game (even if they are both 9-2), I’m also picking WVU to lose to Iowa State and UVA to beat Virginia Tech on the road. Also Wisconsin beats Penn State, cause I’m feeling generous.
