The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Poking A Bear

Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George ‘the Howitzer” Gerbo soak up all the pot stirring and entertain the masses, like only they can.

All the news, notes, and asininity of another week in the NFL, the ongoing action in both the American and National League Championship Series, and a bizarre record already set in the young NHL season. Can the Dodgers find their stroke in time to save their season? Is there any weakness on the machine that has been the Boston Red Sox? Does Torii Hunter have a legit complaint with a bullpen security guard? Don’t you just love a good pitchers duel?

George even takes home a rare victory in the opening banter session. The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show. Conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Necessary Defiance

Some things will just never change. That’s kind of the mentality of the week in the sports world. One thing that’s eternal is that of the Cleveland sports curse. The cursed city’s last champion (1964) franchise rears its ugly head. Asinine doesn’t even do it justice, as the Cleveland Browns trade Trent Richardson to Indianapolis. While the Colts add another young stud, to keep the present and future bright, the Browns ship off their best asset for a first round pick.

Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo tee off on the NFL’s laughing stock cursed franchise. Mike, our resident heel and Cleveland curse appreciator, soaks up the joy of a truly head scratching move. But Mike also tries to rationalize the move.

Another recent American tragedy, the shootings at the Navy base in DC, shook the foundation of the country again. Sports can serve as a diversion and galvanizing effect, when they’re ALLOWED to be. The Washington Nationals were presented Navy hats to tribute to their fallen fellow DC citizens. They were not permitted to wear them during a game. Should the Nats have fought more for the cause?  What’s MLB’s problem with such caps? Our guys provide perspective, stemming from a Keith Olbermann rant.

AL-A-BAM-A, Johnny Manziel, and all that is college football, as well as, another week in the HBS NFL Pick ‘Em Challenge conclude another gold quality show.

You can try to pin them down. You won’t succeed. It’s the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show! Defiant to the end, and conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Praise Be To The Sports God


While commemorating and paying respects to a day that will forever live in the hearts of Americans, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo tear up another broadcast.

This edition, your favorite sports genius’ discuss a season ending injury for Derek Jeter? How does this effect the Yankees chances at crawling into a postseason birth? Will we ever hear these famous words again: “at short-stop, number 2, Derek Jeter, number 2” (Bob Sheppard voice)? Mike explains why, even though losing Jeter won’t hurt the Yankees in 2013, he will definitely be back in 2014. An epic retrospective to the end of the Pittsburgh Pirates 20 year “streak” and their hopes down the stretch keep the baseball diamond the headline act.

With the fall season looming, football is here and making its presence felt already. What was up with the asinine ugliness of Week 1 in the NFL? Can the Eagles offense keep up their college track meet style all season long? If they do, how good is Philadelphia? On the flip side, after a bad home opening loss, how bad are the usually contending Steelers? Expect some other hot button NFL topics, as well as, the HBS NFL Pick ’em Challenge.

Before bowing up a gold quality program, college football continues to spark much intrigue. Johnny Manziel and his polarizing “heel” self square off against AL-A-BAMA, in a pivotal show down. Who will come out on top?

Remember those lost on that faithful day of September 11, 2001. As our service men and women, our police force, and our firefighters, continue to conquer for us, the Howitzer and Buzz-saw bring a release of entertainment, by conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…

Anthony’s Articulated Arguments: 30 Years Doesn’t Serve the Victims Justice!


“Jerry Sandusky is a GREAT man,” said absolutely no one following his sentencing Tuesday. For those that don’t remember, Sandusky is the Penn State assistant coach who was charged with 45 counts of child sexual abuse. Yes, that does bear repeating, Jerry Sandusky was charged with forty-five counts of child sexual abuse. Mr. Sandusky spent his glorious day of reckoning, where he learned he was sentenced to “no less than 30 years and more than 60 years” behind bars; pleading innocence, according to multiple articles.

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Pineapples, Aliens, & Anger!


God speed to the Howitzer in his attempt control the Buzz-saw in this one. A Hall of Fame gets ASININE! Mike “the Buzz-saw” Asti sits a committee down and unleashes. This is a rant that would make the Soup Nazi blush. No pineapple chunks for you! On a happier note, college football is heading towards a playoff system. Does this signal our end of days? Will the aliens come down and reverse District 9 us? While an extraterrestrial invasion would make many of Mike’s crazy dreams a reality, it’s unlikely. What is likely? The NCAA finally waking up. How will this impact college football? Is the method for change actually the right one? Is it possible to please everyone? No!

LeBron James is officially a king! LBJ won his first NBA championship, as his Miami Heat completed a five game series victory over Kevin Durant’s Oklahoma City Thunder. How will a crowned LeBron effect the NBA? Can the Heat actually become the dynasty they celebrated upon their inception? Where did their ESPN Live covered parade rank on the asinine scale? Hey Dan Gilbert, FYI: you were wrong! The Cleveland Cavaliers are still without title and the Cursed City is perpetually in the midst of a never ending drought. After officially putting to rest the insane NBA season, a brief draft recap will grace your ears.

Finally, the HBS catches up on their wheel house. Major League Baseball is approaching the mid-way point. Mike “the Buzz-saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo break down the Kevin Youkilis trade while answering some questions burning up all over the diamond. What teams have been the biggest surprise and can some perennial power houses fend off the injury bug to stay at the top of the MLB mountain top? One team that will eternally remain above the rest – the Howitzer and Buzz-saw, joining forces to conquer sports radio, one day, at a time….
