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…
The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Logic Meets Hype
Summary: Walt and Walt Jr. get the old Aztec back from the shop. After spotting his Heisenberg hat in the back seat, Walt sells the Aztec impulsively and buys a Chrysler 300. Continue reading
Pound your chest and get pumped for another edition of the best damn sports talk show around. Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo combine to argue, spout knowledge, wax poetic on random asinine tales (mostly the adventures of Mike’s crazy life), and most importantly, entertain.
This particular program will feature the NBA Slam Dunk Contest and what has happened to a once prestigious event. Are all professional sports All-Star Games just doomed to suck? From there, they transition into the NBA Trade Deadline. Many big names have been surrounded by rumors. Will any actually be moved, as teams separate themselves from contenders to pretenders and vice versa?
Josh Hamilton did something that made the Buzz-Saw smile. Josh Hamilton decided to be mean and trash talk for basically no reason at all. The former Texas Rangers slugger professed his displeasure with any Ranger fans who may boo him when he travels back with his new squad, the rival Los Angeles Angels. He also stated the area his home fans reside is not a “baseball town.” Good luck digging yourself out of this one, Josh.
A bow is put on this radio gold with a conversation on a record breaking hot start by the Chicago Blackhawks. What does their explosion onto the 2013 NHL scene mean in the long run? Anything? Is Chicago the clear favorite for the Stanley Cup, or can they be beat, despite their early season dominance? Mike has appointed himself Marian Hossa’s defense attorney in the court of asinine public opinion.
All others pose, while the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Get Over It!
Professional wrestling talk returns to the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show, and does so on the heels of another Pay Per View. The WWE’s Elimination Chamber is now in the books. Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti welcomes the ultimate “baby face” to his “heel” persona, as Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley steps back into the HBS ring. These two familiar foes go toe to toe recapping all the action. Expect candid analysis, occasional banter, predictions for what is to come in the coming months for World Wrestling Entertainment, and of course, hear how they would’ve done it all better. If CM Punk could lose his WWE Title, does that mean the Buzz-Saw could actually lose a sports talk session?!
Hear the guitar rip and soak in another installment of the HBS: Buzzed With The Buzz-Saw!
The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Buzzed With The Buzz-Saw: A Chamber Of Justice
Music goes beyond a hobby and becomes a way of life when you listen to hundreds of records just to find that elusive mix that strikes a perfect chord in you. I came upon Blake Allee’s My Best Friends Are Machines mixtape on DatPiff almost a year ago and it’s been cycling through my hip-hop playlist ever since! Now Blake is preparing to release his newest project Televisionn on February 27th and I knew I had to get the inside scoop.
In this Point Five Episode, we examine the News From A Land Far, Far Away that J.J. ‘Lens Flare’ Abrams is going to direct Star Wars: Episode Seven. Along the way Derrick and Tom discuss the hazards of The Casting Game, why society is producing so many snotty kids, and create the latest Jedi Knight sensation and his Light-Knuckles! Even Jason Statham has had to fail, so get to clicking!
Better In The Dark – Episode 144.5: Star Wars Crank’d, or Even JJ Abrams Has an Idiot Uncle
Love is in the air on this special Valentine’s Day edition of the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show. Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo celebrate the holiday by showing love to all those they care about most, the fans. Hold up! Pump the breaks! Wait a minute! That’s not right. They hate all you fools. Never mind… In reality, this day means nothing to them and it will be business as usual. Asinine banter and sports talk.
With football officially behind us and the weather starting to cooperate, baseball is in the air. Spring Training has begun and this means another MLB season is just around the corner. Mike and George discuss which team had the best off-season, what to look for in 2013, and even give a few bold predictions.
Before baseball takes center stage of sports, there’s some madness that needs dealt with first. The college basketball regular season is nearing its end. Nearing an end or not, the title of best team is far from clear. Who the Hell is the favorite and truly best of the bunch? Which teams are actually built for the long haul? Is anybody?!
To conclude another epic broadcast, Mike soaks up the awesomeness that is the Vancouver Canuck goalie drama. Most notably Roberto Luongo’s head standing campaign. NHL resident heel, Matt Cooke will also go on trial. FYI: heels got heels backs (hint, hint). That’s just how it is.
Flowers and candy conquer the bank accounts on Valentine’s Day, while the Howitzer and Buzz-saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Valentine’s Day Asininity
I can’t get used to seeing The Rock with CM Punk’s belt around his shoulder.
Mid-February can be boring in the sports world. The Super Bowl is over, the NHL and NBA are in a lull, and we are still weeks away from the madness. However, don’t despair, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo can always find that diamond in the rough.
Things begin with a wrap on Super Bowl XLVII and a look at the futures of both conference champions. After a record post-season and hoisting the Lombardi Trophy, has Joe Flacco entered the NFL’s elite? Did San Francisco get screwed on the controversial “no call” in the endzone? How would Mike and George, two (non-blood) brothers, handle an epic battle against each other?
Need excitement? Need drama? Need asininity? No fear the Los Angeles Lakers are here! Kobe Bryant spoke. Kobe Bryant tried to lead. Kobe Bryant caused more problems. What else is new…? The Buzz-Saw has few (actually many) choice words for the Black Mamba.
Thought Tim Thomas’ retirement would hold thanks to the NHL Lockout? Well, maybe think again. The Bruin great has been traded to the New York Islanders. Why did the Isles make this move? What will come of, if anything, of this?
Oh and National Signing Day came and went. Teenagers, most who will be irrelevant, decided their college football fates. Too much made of this? Abso-freakin-lutely!
Even when the sports world is lacking, the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
