The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – A Sports Cornucopia

johnny-manziel
Football is back! The games actually count again! Hip hip hooray! Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo welcome back another year of football.

The NCAA has awarded a suspension to the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy, Johnny Manziel. No, not the full season. No, not a few games. No, not one game. Yes, the first half of a game….?! If you’re thinking what we’re thinking, you’re thinking that’s one of the most asinine things you’ve ever heard. Why was this the decision? What purpose does this slap on the wrist serve? How should the whole autograph signing mess have been handled?

Now that the offseason drama is over, it’s time to play some freakin’ games. Can Alabama be dethroned? What early season upsets may come to pass? Which team will thrive the most in their new conference?

Sticking on the gridiron, the NFL’s preseason is at its end and rosters are set. How have the AFC and NFC landscapes changed since the Ravens hoisted the Lombardi Trophy in February? Are there any sleeper squads flying under the radar? Will any 2012 darling suffer the dreaded fall from grace?

It’s mostly a celebration of football, as Mike and George pound their chests on-air. However, baseball’s far from over. And your favorite sports genius’ map out the playoff matchups, while also determining the individual hardware recipients. Is it possible Miguel Cabrera is having an even better season than his Triple Crown campaign?!

Let all those juices flow and pump your fists. Football is back to conquering the nation, just like the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Riding The Lying Train

No ones favorite sports topic is back. Yes, while it’s asinine, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo don’t even appreciate discussing this. Performance enhancing drugs. Steroids.

The cloud that continues to loom over sports, most notably baseball, just won’t go away. Major League Baseball officially handed down its first punishment in regards to the latest PED scandal, the Biogenesis lab. Ryan Braun, the 2011 NL MVP, has been suspended for the remainder of the season. What impact will this have on America’s past time? Can Braun ever repair his image? Is there enough of a deterrent for players to be clean? When will this ever be OVER? All those questions will be answered. Wait. Who are we kidding? No, they won’t. Some of these questions might never even have answers.

From one tainted superstar to another. With Braun suffering his fate, is Alex Rodriguez next? What will A-Rod’s punishment be, with apparently more evidence? Are the Yankees actually running a conspiracy against him?

All the steroid asininity is not the only baseball talk of the show. MLB’s trade deadline is fast approaching and a couple deals have already gone down. Which teams are truly contenders?

In an almost wall to wall baseball program, another gold quality edition of the HBS closes with a career that will never end and mullet that won’t stop growing, Jaromir Jagr.

It’s a soap opera. Tune in for another edition of the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show, as it conquers sports radio, one day, at a time…

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

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 – Logic Meets Hype

teo-nfl-combine

Ever so close to the season of madness in the sports world, there’s still some madness making news. What can create extreme madness? Extreme hype. The hype machine that awarded us Tim Tebow, has now provided Manti Te’o. All obvious hoax jokes aside, what is the former Heisman candidates draft stock, after a miserable performance at the NFL Combine? Is too much being made out of a bad 40 yard dash? Manti may have hurt himself, but who opened some eyes? Tavon Austin. Tavon Austin. Tavon Austin. Setting their West Virginia Mountaineer bias aside (is that possible?), Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo wax poetic on the ceiling and impact an athletic freak like Tavon Austin can bring to an NFL team. Speaking of athletic freaks, what should be made of Tyrann Mathieu, taking his one year absence from football and his continued ass clownery into consideration?

Tom Brady restructured his contract. Your favorite sports genius’ will explain why the “he took less to win” crap is being overblown. And what this could realistically mean for the Patriots chances at another Super Bowl title with number 12?

It wouldn’t be a sports talk show without one of the marquee asinine soap opera franchises. Baseball is back and the MLB season is right around the corner. For the first time in a long while, Yankee fans may not be so thrilled. With other teams improving, can the Evil Empire remain a championship contender with yet another star player suffering an injury? Curtis Granderson has led New York in home runs and RBI over the past two seasons. How big of an issue is his absence (until approximately May)?

An age old HBS battle will close the program: NHL realignment. Expect Mike to explain reality to George in this segment. Hype meets truth, as the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
