The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Foot In Mouth Disease

Dropping bombs and taking names. Well N-bombs and taking names of people offended by you, that is. At least that’s the life of Riley Cooper these days. The Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver got himself in a heap of trouble, after video of him shouting a racial slur at a Kenny Chesney concert recently. Mike Vick wants to him to be given a second chance. Did Vick, someone who has been awarded many second chances (cough, dog fighting, cough), have to say this, or is he really as forgiving as his words dictate? What are Cooper’s other teammates feelings towards him now? Do we need to hear from Chip Kelly about this? It’s political incorrectness, and you know Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo enjoy all that is not PC.

From one buffoon to some others. Major League Baseball is negotiating with Alex Rodriguez on his up-coming PED punishment. BUT Bud Selig isn’t happy with just any punishment. Baseball’s commissioner has an axe to grind and is calling for a lifetime banishment for A-Rod. Mike explains how overreaching like this may actually hurt the game more. With no precedent for banning someone for life based for performance enhancing drug use and involvement in such scandals, is it even possible an eternal ban would stick upon appeal?

Separate from the forever cloud looming over America’s past time, the trade deadline has come and gone. Or should I say was never there in the first place? Few big names changed squads. Why was this? Should some sellers have been more active? Do any of the contenders, namely Pittsburgh, deserve any criticism for a lack of moves?

We conclude another gold quality broadcast with a special buzz-sawing session about why college football pre-season rankings DO matter and why the idiots who think they’re irrelevant make the world go ’round. The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show conquers sports radio, one day, at a time…

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 – An Asinine New Year!


It’s a new year, yet the HBS is still here! Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo say goodbye to 2012 and welcome in An Asinine New Year – 2013. While 2012 set a pretty high bar for asininity in the sports world, 2013 is already getting to work.

Arguably the worst college football bowl season in recent memory continues. What is to blame for these lack luster games and matchups? Will the remaining BCS contests and National Championship Game save this miserable post-season?

With the NFL regualr season now over, it’s time to look ahead to the playoffs. Before that can be done, some important businees needs taken care of. Mike’s 2012 HBS NFL Pick’em championship banner raising ceremony will take place. Once the champagne is popped and the fireworks are finished, Mike and George will give their Wild Card Round picks and even attempt to place the proper blame on the teams that just missed the cut, what their futures will hold, and where the fired head coaches may end up.

After all the football talk, there are some signs for optimism in the NHL labor negociations. The owners and NHL Players Association are actually talking! Not to sound like a bimbo pre-teen female, but OMG! OMG! What does this mean? Will the season be saved? Or is the Buzz-Saw’s hell, fire, and brimstone reality going to come crashing down on the Howitzer’s thoughts of butterflies, rainbows, and a return of hockey?

FYI: Mike still plans to be an unbearable, arrogant, witty, sarcastic prick in 2013. Sorry, if you weren’t a fan before, you will remain displeased. Hey, at least George will be around put him in check (if that’s possible). They conquered 2012 and now embark on a journey of conquering 2013′s sports radio, one day at a time….

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Victims Of Self Destruction


Back from their two week hiatus, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo are ready to explode with pent up aggression built up on the sports world. A lot has happened since the last time you heard from your favorite sports genius’. Your ears can end their depression. The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show has returned!

As usual and much to the Howitzer’s dismay, another Buzz-Saw prediction came true. Notre Dame finished undefeated and is in the National Championship Game. The Irish will square off with Alabama for the title. Who will take home the crown and did Alabama crawling out of the Georgia game give the Notre Dame faithful some hope? Outside of the championship, the rest of the BCS isn’t exactly filled with instant classics and intrigue. Northern Illinois crashed the party. Was NIU truly deserving of a BCS honor? Mike and George go over the college football bowl picture and give their Heisman votes. Why doesn’t George just listen to Mike? He’s always right!

The sport with the busiest off-season is in the midst of meetings to deal with the future, while a dark cloud keeps the past a focus. There’s been some player movement, yes. But that goes on the back burner, as Mike covers the most controversial ballot in Hall of Fame history.

As directed by the one and only Kobe Bryant, Mike and George “put on their big boy pants” and tackle the soap opera that is the Los Angeles Lakers season. Will Mike D’Antoni ever mature? Can Pau “Mr. Sensitive” Gasol fit in this system? Can Kobe be interviewed without scowling at every reporter? God, we hope not. This asinine team is just too much fun to watch implode.

We left. We came back. Mike still hates everyone. And the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show still conquers sports radio, one day, at a time….
