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.
