Ravens Vs. Broncos
And so the traditional Super Bowl Champions Hosted Kick Off Game features Baltimore hosting…
The NCAA has awarded a suspension to the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy, Johnny Manziel. No, not the full season. No, not a few games. No, not one game. Yes, the first half of a game….?! If you’re thinking what we’re thinking, you’re thinking that’s one of the most asinine things you’ve ever heard. Why was this the decision? What purpose does this slap on the wrist serve? How should the whole autograph signing mess have been handled?
Now that the offseason drama is over, it’s time to play some freakin’ games. Can Alabama be dethroned? What early season upsets may come to pass? Which team will thrive the most in their new conference?
Sticking on the gridiron, the NFL’s preseason is at its end and rosters are set. How have the AFC and NFC landscapes changed since the Ravens hoisted the Lombardi Trophy in February? Are there any sleeper squads flying under the radar? Will any 2012 darling suffer the dreaded fall from grace?
It’s mostly a celebration of football, as Mike and George pound their chests on-air. However, baseball’s far from over. And your favorite sports genius’ map out the playoff matchups, while also determining the individual hardware recipients. Is it possible Miguel Cabrera is having an even better season than his Triple Crown campaign?!
Let all those juices flow and pump your fists. Football is back to conquering the nation, just like the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
We’re now into what many people consider the most exciting week of the football season, and I can see why. You’ve still get four games over two days like last week, and the teams that are participating in them are true contenders. There are still the stray lucky teams that squirt through (I’m looking at you, Football Jebus Led Broncos of 2012), but mostly we’re dealing with squads that have their playoff game faces on and know what they’re doing.
BAH, HUMBUG! Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo ring in the Christmas season and the new year in style. In their last show of 2012, your favorite sports geniuses go all over the sports gauntlet.
College basketball enters the program for the first time in awhile. Jim Boeheim’s 900th win is put into perspective, along with an update on the season to date. Has Duke already assured themselves a number one seed in the upcoming NCAA Tournament? What’s wrong with some other struggling giants?
From the college hardwood to the pros, the HBS brings you the next chapter in “As The Lakers Asininity Turns.” Does Pau Gasol have to be traded unless things turn around soon? Or will the impending return of Steve Nash be enough to mend their wounds?
While the Lakers are always dramatic, their soap opera doesn’t even hold a candle to the NFL’s New York Jets. Rex Ryan officially becomes the Buzz-Saw’s best friend for life with his decision to start Greg McElroy this week. Was this the right decision? Does Mark Sanchez have a future with the Jets? Will this finally send the message to Tebow Maniacs that it just ain’t happening for their hero? We can dream, right?
In addition to these topics, expect some more MLB off-season talk, most notably a reigning Cy Young winner being traded, Mike to continue to destroy George’s unfounded optimism about the NHL Lockout, as well as, the Week 16 edition of the second annual HBS NFL Pick’em Challenge.
Get those cookies and milk ready for Santa, put out the manger, light the menorah, or do whatever you people do. No matter what holiday you celebrate, just realize the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
