Being hated isn't always a bad thing. Invoking emotion is better than none at all. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo live by this philosophy. 

Tony Stewart might very well be the most hated man in America these days. Why? Well his car hit and killed up and coming driver Kevin Ward Jr. Mike gives perhaps the most unpopular opinion imaginable: Ward can blame Ward for his own death. Should any criminal charges be pursued? If not criminal, does Stewart lose a civil suit? What does this horrible incident mean for Tony Stewart's racing career, both on and off the track? 

When you're already cursed, it's best to minimize the controversy and asininity. The Cleveland Browns can't ever seem to accomplish this. Johnny Manziel or Brian Hoyer? Who will be the Browns starting quarterback? Which scenario will lead to less drama? 

They may not have an East coast bias, but arguably the Howitzer and Buzz-saw are approaching a West coast bias. Clayton Kershaw would make any man want to blast some California Love. Kershaw's already a lock for his third Cy Young award. Is he the favorite for hist first National League MVP award too? How much is the weak field of candidates helping his cause? 

There's two constants in life. 1.) Haters are gonna hate. 2.) The Howitzer and Buzz-saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time....
