And we’re back. Welcome to the Lightning Round. Don’t try to figure anything out. It’s not so much a rant as it is a broken train of thought. Or maybe you just can’t see the tracks. Treat all the paragraphs and separate thoughts and don’t wonder what my problem is. I have no idea.
Episode 29 of the podcast is live. This one starts out on an odd note: I swallow a gnat during the opening seconds. I begin talking and see a gnat fly around my face. I breathe in and the gnat gets sucked into my mouth and down my throat.
The big topic this week is about marriage equality. The LGBTQQA crowd can now legally get married in the state of West Virginia. I give my thoughts on marriage and look at this. Then I read a list of people’s Facebook comments they posted. There’s some ignorance there.
I give a status update on the next B-Sides book in my series and when I should be publishing volume two. I announce the stories that I have queued up for volume two and let you know which ones are finished and which aren’t.
And that’s everything for this week. Episode 30 is coming up, and I’ll try to have something special planned for that interesting number. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, etc about the podcast feel free to let me know.
This is not a pro smoking schtick. Actually, I don’t smoke, never really liked it. The fact is that as our nation grows, it seems more and more laws are put in place to, “save ourselves” from…well, ourselves. The fact is, I just like how they always seem to find one culprit, one, “bad guy,” and force everyone to believe it. The fact is, I know smoking is bad. People have known that well over a century now. There is a reason that in the 1920s and earlier, cigarettes were called cancer sticks. Continue reading
Really? I mean come on, is this that big of a thing? Once a year the moon appears bigger, and brighter than normal. OHHHH, it is amazing! Continue reading
Politicians ask and beg for your vote, George “the Howitzer” Gerbo and Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti demand it! Barack Obama is still the President of the United States of America. While Democrats rejoice and Republicans plan to regroup for 2016, the country looks to reunite. One thing everyone can agree on, regardless of political affiliation, sports are the perfect recipe for a galvanizing effect.
The college football regular season is now in its final weeks. After crawling out of LSU undefeated, are the Crimson Tide all but destined for yet another shot at a National Title? Who would be their toughest competitor among the teams still lurking just behind the top squad? Another program with a lot of history, Notre Dame, is in the midst of a renaissance. The Fighting Irish are 9-0, having relied heavily on some leprechaun luck in a triple over-time victory of Pitt.
THE SKY IS FALLING! THE SKY IS FALLING (sense the sarcasm)! The Los Angeles Lakers are limping out of the gate. Can this newly formed All-Star team get their act together and become the championship contender they were put together to be? How close are the Lakers brass from pressing the panic button and shaking things up? Is this discussion totally ASININE only a couple weeks into the NBA season? To quote WWE’s Daniel Bryan, “YES! YES! YES!”
Before bowing up another gold quality broadcast, Mike and George keep tugging at their heart strings and take a look at the NHL Lockout. Talking is always progress in a collective bargaining agreement…
Of course, stay tuned for week 10 of the second annual HBS NFL Pick’em Challenge! The Redskin Rule was not upheld, but as usual, the Buzz-Saw reigned supreme. Like President Obama, the Howitzer better get to work!
All ballots are in, and the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show conquers sports radio, one day, at a time….
Tis the season for debates. With the Presidential election looming, the sports world has some extreme competition on the news wire. How does sports respond? Get as asinine as possible. For this broadcast, the very best asinine killers around, George “the Howitzer” Gerbo and Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti, debate the conclusion of the MLB season and look forward to the playoffs, what differences they noticed after a week of the professional referees return to the NFL, and make an attempt to decipher the video game action that is sweeping over college football, most notably West Virginia University.
With Mike’s Dodgers bandwagon now officially parked, what team will the Buzz-saw decide is worthy of his luck? Will George jinx any clubs by sending the Curse of the Howitzer their way? Is it Geno Smith’s Heisman to lose, after his absurd 8 touchdown performance over Baylor? While we realize that was a stupid question, how will the Mountaineers and their air assassin fair down the stretch? And of course your favorite sports genius’ continue the HBS NFL Pick’em Challenge.
Who would win a debate between the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw? Let’s be real. The Buzz-Saw is undefeated for a reason. Forget Obama and Romney, cast your vote for Howitzer / Buzz-Saw 2012. Why? Duh! The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports radio, and could conquer the United States of America, one day, at a time….
