Alex Rodriguez may not feel it's the right time or place to be totally honest, but Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo have an inability to be anything other than truth tellers. Major League Baseball has officially handed A-Rod a 211 game suspension for his role in the most recent PED scandal. To the surprise of no one this is being appealed. Did MLB get this right? Where does this latest "A-Rod playing while fighting suspension" circus rank on the asininity scale? How will all this play out? How is the infamous Curse of the Howitzer wrapped around everything A-Rod vs MLB? Johnny Damon even creeps back on the scene inadvertently diminishing accomplishments he was apart of. 

The continued A-Rod story wasn't the only asinine sports of the week. Johnny Manziel cemented himself as a buffoon, after news broke that he may have sold his autograph for money, an NCAA violation. If true, should Johnny Football be suspended, or maybe even ban, from all of the up-coming 2013 season? It's widely known the NCAA has some ridiculous rules. This whole mess has ignited the never ending "should college athletes be paid?" debate. 

Pre-season football is here! Excited? I know we aren't either. With the new NFL season quickly approaching, teams are back to work and all the off-season drama is behind them. Or is it? As Riley Cooper and his n-bombing self returns to training camp, another much more prominent receiver did some tongue lashing of his own. Wes Welker, now with the Broncos, informed the media he wasn't exactly the biggest Bill Belichick fan during his tenure in New England. Oh boy! Mike loves this stuff. He even predicted it once upon a time. 

It's a fight for their lives, as the Howitzer and Buzz-saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time....
