The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Beware The Deer!

Wild Card Playoffs - Indianapolis Colts v Baltimore Ravens

Deer antler spray. Deer antler spray. Deer antler spray?! Yes, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo will be discussing deer antler spray. Just when you thought the sports world would go into a lull waiting for the Super Bowl, deer antler spray surrounds the headlines. A recent story came out stating Baltimore Ravens legendary linebacker, Ray Lewis used deer antler spray as performance enhancing drug, while trying to recover from an injury. How does this effect Ray’s legacy and will it have any bearing on the big game?

Don’t think the AFC Champion was hogging all the asininity. Randy Moss, who’s still seeking his first ring in his second career Super Bowl trip, decided to proclaim he is the greatest receiver in NFL history. While Randy has been great, another famous 49er receiver didn’t exactly appreciate Randy’s comments? Does Moss have any argument in his quest to be football’s receiving GOAT? Mike, a longtime Moss fan, will accept the challenge as “the Freaks” defense attorney.

Oh wait there’s a game to be played? No way….! Well as Kurt Angle used to say during his WWE days, it’s true, it’s damn true! Super Bowl XLVII is previewed in every possible way imaginable.

Football is front and center, but other sports have not gone into a hibernation. Expect an NHL update, now that the shortened season is a few weeks old. And maybe even a look at the college basketball landscape. Who the Hell is worthy of being #1? It’s a serious question, folks.

The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw don’t need no damn deer antler spray! They’re all natural, yet still conquer sports radio, one day, at a time….

Slater’s Signature Finisher: Looking at nWo: The Revolution


I was sending a text message the other day. As I was typing the word, “being,” my phone did something that I thought was amazing – it tried to autocorrect it to nWo. I might like wrestling a little too much…

In this episode, The Guys Outta Brooklyn honor one of the most influential figures in the history of genre movies and martial arts, Bruce Lee. Tom and Derrick discuss the philosophy and career of this remarkable man, who managed to change the face of cinema after starring in only four movies (and yes, we do discuss that thing that claims to be his fifth film). You know it’s Chinese boxing time, so get to clicking!

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – It’s A Mirage, It’s A Sabotage


Pop some bottles and leap for joy. The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show celebrates its two year anniversary. Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo have been conquering your ears for two full seasons of the HBS. Didn’t think they’d last, did ya? Well haters, you’re wrong again.

Following the fireworks, your favorite sports genius’ get back to business, sports talk (and of course explaining their asinine lives). This week we’ve got a battle of buffoonery! Pro Football Hall of Fame candidate and career Oakland Raider – Tim Brown  vs Journeyman coach and former AFC champion head coach of Brown’s Raiders – Bill Callahan. Is sabotage an acceptable term to be used for Bill’s game plan for a Super Bowl XXXVIII loss to Tampa? We enter Mike’s wheel house with another asinine conspiracy.

Now for a Super Bowl of present day. Who has the upper-hand in Super Bowl XLVII’s matchup of the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens. “A Battle of Brothers” is the obvious headline being blasted. But what storyline is being lost? FYI: Mike is incredibly furious about this. An angry Buzz-Saw always makes for an entertaining show.

A moratorium is lifted, as Mike D’Antoni keeps outdoing himself for asininity. The guy just won’t quit acting a fool. Is he trying to get fired? Is this revenge on the Lakers for all the playoff exits while he coached the Suns? Why does he hate Pau Gasol? And more seriously, will things ever be corrected in LA? Talk radio sure hopes the answer to the last question is a big NO.

Hockey and a Manti Te’o followup will conclude this anniversary broadcast. Here’s to another two years of the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…

Moves Like Curtis: Championship Weekend 2013!

And now we’re in the overture for the Greatest Game of The Year, when the last four survivors of this season slug it out for the right to represent their conference in The Super Bowl.  And we’ve got four teams with varying degrees of experience in the playoffs, and four teams with varying degree of competency–hell, we have one team that has gotten here pretty much by the dint of being the only competent team in a division full of chuckleheads.  And since this is going to be a short column, I’ll finish up with my speculations on which of the match-ups Goodell wants to see.

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Hi-jinks Or Hoax?

WARNING: THIS IS A HOAX! The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show is fake. Always has been. We apologize for the confusion, as we’ve been too embarrassed to tell the truth all this time.

Sorry to burst the haters bubbles, we are not a figment of your imagination. Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo are as real as it gets.

This week, your favorite sports genius’ try to wrap their heads around the Manti Te’o “dead” girlfriend/”Catfish”/conspiracy/hoax/WTF?! situation. Forever single George, will even receive praise for never having a made up girlfriend.

If the jokes and laughing ever stop (that’s a big if for Mike), the segments go one liar to another. While Lance Armstrong has actually met all the girls he’s dated, he hasn’t been fully honest with them, or anyone for that matter. Lance confesses his PED use to Oprah. Why do this now? Was this a wise move? How should Lance’s achievements be viewed, taking both his victory over cancer and in cycling, coupled with his web of lies.

Oh, there is actually sports news ON the field, court, and rink (it’s a miracle) to discuss?! Stop the freakin’ presses, asinine world. The NFL playoffs are down to the championship round. Which team will remain standing, following the best pro football weekend of the year? Will the Howitzer ever stop cursing his teams? The guy is like a crazed unstoppable jinxing force. Even the Buzz-saw hasn’t been able to prevent the destruction of dreams.

Wrapping things up, the NHL is days away from starting a shortened season. Mike is still concerned for the product he may see on the ice. Regardless, hockey’s back and no one can really complain about that.

The HBS – the best damn non-hoax sports talk show around. Conquering sports radio, one day and hoax, at a time…

Moves Like Curtis: Divisional Weekend 2013!

Seahawks Redskins Football.JPEG-03f4d

We’re now into what many people consider the most exciting week of the football season, and I can see why.  You’ve still get four games over two days like last week, and the teams that are participating in them are true contenders.  There are still the stray lucky teams that squirt through (I’m looking at you, Football Jebus Led Broncos of 2012), but mostly we’re dealing with squads that have their playoff game faces on and know what they’re doing.

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Reeling In The Bait


Just when you think the asininity is calming down, it pulls you back in! This week, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo reel in asininity and mount it for all to see.

Your favorite sports geniuses start things off by putting a bow on the college football season and the BCS National Championship Game. Has Nick Saban become the greatest college football coach of all-time after his 4th title? How much longer can the Alabama dynasty continue? Where will Notre Dame go from here? If Chip Kelly leaves for the NFL’s Eagles, can the Irish keep up their renaissance?

Hockey has returned! NHL hockey (the only real kind) that is. So the Lockout is over. That means an end to NHL asinine ways, right? Not so fast… In fact we’re already in a state of normalcy again. Luongo is on the trade block, elite teams are without captains, the Maple Leafs make no sense and act a fool, and chaos abounds for a shortened season. Get excited (eye roll)….!

The hardwood won’t be ignored, as Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett engage in a war of words that leads all fans crossing their fingers for a future MMA style cage match? I got my money on the older KG. He clearly can get in Melo’s head.

Another week of NFL playoff action is here. It’s the Divisional Round. Who will remain once the dust is settled on chapter 2 in the NFL post-season? Before giving their picks, some drama needs discussed from Wild Card Weekend. We’re looking at you, Redskins.

What does the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show do better than the rest? If you don’t know now, you’re just an idiot. The HBS conquers sports radio, one day, at a time….

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Buzzed With The Buzz-Saw: Cooperstown Is Closed! (Guest: Eric Little)


The Baseball Hall of Fame would like to congratulate *crickets* on their induction. In the most controversial Hall of Fame vote in sports history, no one was awarded entry to the gates of Cooperstown. For the first time since 1996 a Baseball Hall of Fame class will have no names under it. Was this the right decision? Who should’ve been given baseball’s highest honor? What were some of the reasons for this result? And what does future years look like with new high profile candidates coming on the first ballot in the coming years?

Mike “the Buzz-saw” Asti goes it alone for this one. To provide a differing opinion, Eric Little steps into the HBS ring. Little, a professional baseball broadcaster and co-host of the Minor League Report Podcast. Watch the swift motion of the buzz-saw blades, Mr. Little. They are eternally sharp.

This is a segment baseball nerds (don’t be ashamed) will absolutely love.

Apparently no baseball player conquered enough to be Hall of Fame worthy. Without question, the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show is deserving of 100% of every vote, while conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…
