It’s the 25th Anniversary of The Fox Television Network…and Tom and Derrick celebrate by gleefully unearthing some of the shows and events the first ‘netlet’ neglected to mention when it threw itself a birthday party! Join the Boys Outta Brooklyn as they toast the hotness of Alison LaPlaca and Melanie Chartoff, defend Morgan and Wong from the tongue-lashing of Chris Carter, commemorate the first cross-network crossover, and otherwise poke the sleeping memory of the nation’s fourth broadcast network to dislodge some stuff it might not want to remember. You know we control the universe, so get to clicking!

This week, Mike “the Buzz-saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo welcome Brian Cuban into the HBS ring. Brian, brother of Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, is an accomplished lawyer and has lately appeared on national programs such as CNN and “Red Eye Radio” to discuss the debacle at PSU. Brian stirred up some controversy after dropping the legal angle to the punishments smacked down by the NCAA towards the once holy Pennsylvania State University. Mike, The Howitzer and Buzz-saw Show’s resident heel, is always a supporter of an unpopular, yet accurate opinion. Cuban will provide his insight to the topic that even moratoriums can’t stop from sweeping the nation.
After saying goodbye to their guest, Mike and George will explore some recent MLB news. Is the trade deadline crock pot just starting to simmer or has it already boiled over? FYI: The Buzz-saw will brag about the strong possibility another one of his pioneered bandwagons and prediction machines coming true….AGAIN! This program closes with an overjoyed Howitzer, as the asininity that has been the NHL off-season is slowly going away. Rick Nash is FINALLY a New York Ranger. A saga that has plagued hockey fans for over 6 months is now over. There may even be a preview of the fast approaching new NFL season. Mr. Brian Cuban conquers the courtroom, just like the Howitzer and Buzz-saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
I went to bed last night complaining on Twitter that I probably wouldn’t get to see The Dark Knight Rises in theaters. Having just started a new job, it looks like my comic fandom is going to take a back seat to the real life reality of paying bills. That being said, I was okay with not attending the midnight premiere of DKR. Having attended the Spider-Man 3 premiere in 2007, I realized midnight showings just weren’t for me. I’d rather hit up a matinee the week after the big screening. Less people and a better opportunity for me to focus on the movie.
WWE’s most recent pay-per-view “Money in the Bank” is, for lack of a better term, in the bank. The two marquee matches are the MITB ladder matches, in which competitors climb to retrieve a briefcase containing a contract for either a WWE or World Championship match at any time of his choosing. The contract is good for up to a year.
