The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Act Buffoon, Think Later

Herm Edwards preaches a valuable philosophy to athletes across the entire sports world. It’s simple: his “Don’t Press Send” lesson teaches athletes to think first before acting or tweeting buffoonery to the masses.

While most people would probably prefer if more actually followed this and listened to Herm. In contrast, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo are thrilled each and every time someone does not.

During this edition of the now famous and renowned HBS, your favorite sports genius’ banter about asininity, as only they can.

Aaron Hernandez’s former teammates sending a very public message of support to the once All-Pro tight end awaiting his murder trial. Should Maurkice and Mike Pouncey receive any punishment for rocking “Free Hernandez hats in a tweeted picture? If not from the NFL, should their respective teams get involved? As par for his heel course, I’m sure Mike’s thoughts will shock George and be agreed with by few.

Johnny Manziel resurrected an historic program and took the college football landscape by storm last season, so much so he became the first freshman ever to win the prestigious Heisman Trophy. Ever since his phenomenal year on the field ended, Johnny “Football” has done what most college kids do: party, drink, and stay up all night. Will his antics have any effect on the 2013 season and is too much being made of him acting as most guys his age do?

An MLB mid-season award segment and a discussion if the new FOX Sports 1 will truly give the sports media mothership, ESPN, a run for its money round out another gold quality program.

What’s always great and never asinine? The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show, that’s what. Always conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…

Slater’s Signature Finisher: Looking at nWo: The Revolution


I was sending a text message the other day. As I was typing the word, “being,” my phone did something that I thought was amazing – it tried to autocorrect it to nWo. I might like wrestling a little too much…

Slater’s Signature Finisher: A Look Inside Ring Of Honor


Over the summer, Ring of Honor came to Charleston, WV, and I attended the show. It was a television taping for their weekly syndicated show, titled simply “ROH TV”. More on that later. Continue reading

The Ryback Predicament


I remember watching Extreme Rules with Thomas, Anthony, Moose, and Asti back in April when Ryback made an unscheduled appearance on the stage. As he trudged his way to the ring, Thomas asked me what I thought of this newest addition to the WWE roster. Continue reading

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Cult Of Personality (Guest: Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley)


Cult of personality is the title of the song CM Punk has been using as his theme ever since he dropped the pipe bomb heard round the world. It has been very fitting for his new heel character and is equally suitable for the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show’s resident media personality and heel. Much like CM Punk, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti is the BEST IN THE WORLD at what he does and is a cult of personality.

Mike’s tag team partner for the broadcast is non other than the hip-hop spewing, old school hat rocking, comic book nerd himself, Kelen “B HYPHEN” Conley. When these two get together it gives the feel of a Wrestlemania main event every time.

This match is scheduled for one fall and will feature the CM Punk and Paul Heyman’s pairing, who Punk should fight at the “Hell In A Cell” PPV, the hitting of a fan incident, Vince McMahon’s recent involvement on and off TV, how far WWE will take Team Hell No’s (Daniel Bryan and Kane), and what the future holds for Brock Lesnar. Can B HYPHEN end the Buzz-Saw’s record setting 300+ day championship reign? All I know is he better show Mike the RESPECT he deserves!

Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti may be a functioning lunatic and a cult of personality, but he sure does conquer sports radio, one day, at a time….

Slater’s Signature Finisher: Learn To Sell, Not Sell Out, With Stevie Richards


WWE Velocity was a late-night show that aired Saturday nights on SpikeTV during the mid 2000s. It was recap program that went over what happened the previous week on Smackdown.

Slater’s Signature Finisher: Oh, You Don’t Know Hacksaw?


I spotted Hacksaw: The Jim Duggan Story at Barnes & Noble the other day and had to get it. With his trademark beard, long hair, blue trunks, two-by-four, and loud “Ho-oh” chant (which is how he spells it in the book), Hacksaw was a fun character that I enjoyed as child. At 236 pages, it was an easy read that I got through in two days. Continue reading
