Some celebrate Christmas, some celebrate Hanukkah, others celebrate the National Football League’s annual draft, as their most special “holiday” of the calendar year. Mike ‘the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer’ Gerbo welcome the Kvetching Draftniks guys to the HBS ring. Scott Carasik, Alex Wiederspiel, and Ethan Hammerman spout, or should I say, kvetch, all the knowledge imaginable on the 2013 NFL Draft.
With the Darrelle Revis New York Jets era now officially over (sorry Alex), how does this trade impact the rest of the draft. And what is the future of Revis, now a Tampa Bay Buccaneer, as well as, the team he left behind?
Is Geno Smith truly worthy of a high draft pick, or is he benefiting from a lack of quarterback depth? Are the Minnesota Vikings and Manti Te’o headed towards a perfect marriage? Who will be the diamonds in the rough? Every draft can alter the leagues landscape for decades. For every Shannon Sharpe late round gem, there’s a Ryan Leaf or Tony Mandarich to wreck havoc on a franchise.
Apparently JaMarcus Russell has decided to put down the “purple drank” and attempt a comeback. Where does this rank on the asinine richter scale? Off the charts is a possible answer. Who are the potential overhyped 2013 class draft busts?
The Kvetching Draftniks conquer the NFL Draft, while the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw continue to conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
Madness. One word says it all. For some boring fools, March just means spring and warmer weather (or so they say). For the rest of us, it means the most madness filled sports month of the year. Professional athletes take a backseat to college kids. It’s the NCAA Tournament. It’s the place dreams come true, eternal memories are formed, hearts are broken, a nation unifies, and Davids and Goliaths are on an equal stage.
Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo do what the rest of the country is doing, they fill out their brackets. Your favorite sports genius’ go through the entire field and give their picks. Based on Mike’s high winning percentage in competitions against George, can the Howitzer pull off a sports pick’em equivalent to a 16 over a 1 seed? On second thought, we’ll be nice, 15 over a 2… At least that’s been accomplished before.
What’s their Final Four look like? Do elite programs like Louisville and Indiana have enough to go the distance? Will a year of improbable upsets continue? Can Gonzaga, now with expectations, finally get the job done and make a deep run? Is Duke vulnerable by carrying several disappointing losses? Is Miami (FL.) poised to prove themselves? Does the Michigan bandwagon have any room left? Which low seeded teams have that dark horse potential?
George always knows he’s risking unbearable bragging and bravado any time he enters into a competitive venue against the Buzz-Saw.
We now all prepare for that one shining moment. You know what? Screw the corny stuff. Let the games begin!
Like a puff of white smoke, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo have arrived to send shockwaves. If white smoke can precede the introduction of a pope, why can’t it present sports media’s most dominating duo?
While Catholics are celebrating a shakeup, some NFL fans are mourning the chaos that has been the recent player movement. Baltimore’s chances to repeat as Super Bowl champions has gone from difficult to next to impossible, after losing several key components, such as Anquan Boldin and the man groomed to replace Ray Lewis, Dannell Ellerbe. The Ravens haven’t been alone in experiencing an exodus. Pittsburgh saw Mike Wallace and Rashard Mendenhall depart for greener pastures. Percy Harvin is now a Seahawk and Wes Welker jumped from Tom Brady and Patriots to Peyton Manning and the Broncos. What does all this activity mean for the new landscape of power in the NFL? Can perennial powers contend without their star player? Are these players enough to push teams over the hump?
Despite March Madness, a time for basketball craziness, being surrounded by football news, the hardwood insanity is not to be denied. How will be the conference tournaments impact the NCAA Tournament selections? What squads can surprise and leapfrog off of the bubble? There will even be a retrospective tribute paid to the Big East, as the last true Big East Tournament continues. Mike will try to contain George’s tears.
Finally, the beast Lakers Dwight Howard is here. What will his pounding of the franchise he scorned do for LA’s playoff quest? Turn away Magic fans (if there are still any), Mike will be mean to you.
Team USA is soaring in the World Baseball Classic. What would a United States WBC Title mean? All others go up in smoke, while the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…
Mid-February can be boring in the sports world. The Super Bowl is over, the NHL and NBA are in a lull, and we are still weeks away from the madness. However, don’t despair, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo can always find that diamond in the rough.
Things begin with a wrap on Super Bowl XLVII and a look at the futures of both conference champions. After a record post-season and hoisting the Lombardi Trophy, has Joe Flacco entered the NFL’s elite? Did San Francisco get screwed on the controversial “no call” in the endzone? How would Mike and George, two (non-blood) brothers, handle an epic battle against each other?
Need excitement? Need drama? Need asininity? No fear the Los Angeles Lakers are here! Kobe Bryant spoke. Kobe Bryant tried to lead. Kobe Bryant caused more problems. What else is new…? The Buzz-Saw has few (actually many) choice words for the Black Mamba.
Thought Tim Thomas’ retirement would hold thanks to the NHL Lockout? Well, maybe think again. The Bruin great has been traded to the New York Islanders. Why did the Isles make this move? What will come of, if anything, of this?
Oh and National Signing Day came and went. Teenagers, most who will be irrelevant, decided their college football fates. Too much made of this? Abso-freakin-lutely!
Welcome to the pilot episode of Thomas Deja’s Moves Like Curtis: The Podcast! Brought to you by TricycleOffense.com, this podcast will explore America’s most popular professional sport: the NFL! In this episode, Kelen “B Hyphen” Conley drops by to initiate Tom’s Synod of 32: 32 teams, 32 fans. As the offseason begins, Tom is on a quest to get to heart of every fan’s issues with their teams; from the lowly Jaguars (Gerbils) on up to the newly crowned Ravens. Kelen becomes the Raiders new GM and outlines what it will take to bring winning back to Oakland. Also: Richard Seymour eating chicken!
Deer antler spray. Deer antler spray. Deer antler spray?! Yes, Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo will be discussing deer antler spray. Just when you thought the sports world would go into a lull waiting for the Super Bowl, deer antler spray surrounds the headlines. A recent story came out stating Baltimore Ravens legendary linebacker, Ray Lewis used deer antler spray as performance enhancing drug, while trying to recover from an injury. How does this effect Ray’s legacy and will it have any bearing on the big game?
Don’t think the AFC Champion was hogging all the asininity. Randy Moss, who’s still seeking his first ring in his second career Super Bowl trip, decided to proclaim he is the greatest receiver in NFL history. While Randy has been great, another famous 49er receiver didn’t exactly appreciate Randy’s comments? Does Moss have any argument in his quest to be football’s receiving GOAT? Mike, a longtime Moss fan, will accept the challenge as “the Freaks” defense attorney.
Oh wait there’s a game to be played? No way….! Well as Kurt Angle used to say during his WWE days, it’s true, it’s damn true! Super Bowl XLVII is previewed in every possible way imaginable.
Football is front and center, but other sports have not gone into a hibernation. Expect an NHL update, now that the shortened season is a few weeks old. And maybe even a look at the college basketball landscape. Who the Hell is worthy of being #1? It’s a serious question, folks.
The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw don’t need no damn deer antler spray! They’re all natural, yet still conquer sports radio, one day, at a time….
Pop some bottles and leap for joy. The Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show celebrates its two year anniversary. Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo have been conquering your ears for two full seasons of the HBS. Didn’t think they’d last, did ya? Well haters, you’re wrong again.
Following the fireworks, your favorite sports genius’ get back to business, sports talk (and of course explaining their asinine lives). This week we’ve got a battle of buffoonery! Pro Football Hall of Fame candidate and career Oakland Raider – Tim Brown vs Journeyman coach and former AFC champion head coach of Brown’s Raiders – Bill Callahan. Is sabotage an acceptable term to be used for Bill’s game plan for a Super Bowl XXXVIII loss to Tampa? We enter Mike’s wheel house with another asinine conspiracy.
Now for a Super Bowl of present day. Who has the upper-hand in Super Bowl XLVII’s matchup of the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens. “A Battle of Brothers” is the obvious headline being blasted. But what storyline is being lost? FYI: Mike is incredibly furious about this. An angry Buzz-Saw always makes for an entertaining show.
A moratorium is lifted, as Mike D’Antoni keeps outdoing himself for asininity. The guy just won’t quit acting a fool. Is he trying to get fired? Is this revenge on the Lakers for all the playoff exits while he coached the Suns? Why does he hate Pau Gasol? And more seriously, will things ever be corrected in LA? Talk radio sure hopes the answer to the last question is a big NO.
Hockey and a Manti Te’o followup will conclude this anniversary broadcast. Here’s to another two years of the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquering sports radio, one day, at a time…
