The asininity just won't ever end. Anyone who thought it couldn't worse than the Ray Rice domestic violence scandal for the NFL, was very very wrong. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo continue their annoyance on the asinine issues, that seem to never stop plaguing sports. While they're annoyed like everybody else, your favorite sports genius' were born to analyze the overly asinine.
Adrian Peterson joins Rice amomg recognizable running backs, now shamed by off the field transgressions. With pictures of abuse to his four year old son surfacing, what is the perception of Peterson compared to Rice? Did the Vikings handle this situation properly or did they go from handling it right to messing it up? Why has NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell been silent during the Peterson drama? Mike goes on one of his epic rants explaining why it's not as easy as some think for a franchise to outright release a star player dealing with legal trouble. What can the league do to change? A message to the buffoons claiming their "done" with the NFL is sent.
Unacceptable behavior isn't going in the professional ranks. Jameis Winston can't stop acting a fool. Will this recent incident cause a red flag in Winston's draft stock? How were Manziel's actions different? Suspended for only one half?! Come on, man!
To sprinkle some joy in this field of ridiculousness, the MLB pennant races are almost over. Who will claim the final playoff spots? Could we have an Orioles and Nationals Beltway World Series? Did Ron Washington owe us an apology for his adulterty? The short answer....NO.
If you're not conquering the asinine, you're simply not conquering. The Howitzer and Buzz-saw conquer all that is asinine, one day, at a time....
Once again, the fun has been sucked from sports. The NFL new season is under way and the games seem meaningless. In a twist of epic asinine proportions, new revelations in the Ray Rice domestic violence scandal have surfaced.
Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo usually appreciate the off the field asinine topics. This is just too much.
Ray Rice went from sitting out only two games to being released by the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the NFL, all thanks to TMZ. Outlets like TMZ and Deadspin have been proved to rule the world. If TMZ could obtain the video of Ray Rice knocking out his then fiance Janay Palmer, how are we supposed to believe the mighty National Football League could not? If TMZ never made this video public, would Ray Rice be starting in week three? Is Roger Goodell lying about having not seen the video months ago? How could the NFL and the Ravens have handled this whole situation better? Mike rants that Roger Goodell is either a negligent moron or a scum liar. Which do you believe....? While George can't imagine someone would be so evil and careless, he's leaning towards joining Mike's world of Hell, fire, and brimstone.
Oh yeah, the NFL season has kicked off. We adavnce towards week two in the annual HBS NFL Pick'em Challenge. Can anything be made of all the upsets? Are perennial contenders, New England, Green Bay, and New Orleans already in must wins?
Shockingly baseball is bringing a sense of normalcy. There's just a few weeks left of the season, but the pennant race is far from over. Who will claim the final NL and AL Wild Card spots? Are the Royals going to hang around and steal a division title from Detroit? Have the Pirates managed to crawl into the playoffs? Did Adam Dunn curse the A's?
The Howitzer and Buzz-saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time....
Approaching the fall season means one very important thing, FOOTBALL, FOOTBAL, FOOTBALL. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo go wall to wall FOOTBALL (yes, it's necessary to scream). A new season means excitement and hope for all teams...well except the Browns (wink).
The Seattle Seahawks enter an NFL season as defending champions for the first time in franchise history. Even with how good they are, is it too tough to repeat? Your favorite sports genius' go division by division previewing the season and giving their thoughts on the impact players. Has San Francisco improved enough to reclaim the West or are the 49ers perhaps overrated? Is the addition of Julius Peppers going to cure the Packers defensive issues? Are the Bears really deserving of the "sexy pick" tag? Has Drew Brees and the Saints positioned themselves as head and shoulders above the rest of the South? And then there's the no one wins more than 9 games asinine NFC East!
Over in the AFC, will a weak overall conference allow teams like Cincinnati and San Diego to finally make a deep run? Will Peyton Manning and the Broncos take a step back? Does Ben Roethlisberger not get enough recognition for maksing the Steelers issues? No, he's not one of them. Is the AFC East tighter than people think? Denver again or could maybe this be Andrew Luck and Indianapolis Colts year?!
It's not just the NFL that kicks off, college football is already underway. Did WVU prove anything with a close loss to Alabama? Is Florida State truly the best team? Can Kenny Hill AKA Kenny Football keep picking up where Johnny Manziel left off for Texas A&M? There's now a playoff. Mike tells the buffoons why this will still spark controversy.
Pound your chest and scream! Football is back! Oh yeah, and the Howitzer and Buzz-saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time..
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....
It's very difficult to control an oversized ego. Just ask George Gerbo. He's been trying to control his co-host for years. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo bring you another gold edition of their gold standard podcast.
In the illustrious history of the @MikeAsti11 Twitter account, we may finally found the greatest tweet ever sent to the Buzz-saw. Think six degrees of separation and Kevin Bacon.
Even though their season has been over for months, the NBA continues to own the headlines. This time some negative attention from a Team USA scrimmage. Could Paul George's gruesome injury have been prevented? What does this mean for the upcoming NBA season, most notably the Eastern Conference?
While the Pacers try to deal with life without PG, what does the addition of superstar beast Kevin Love mean for the Cavaliers? Will LeBron and Cleveland's paper champions break the curse?
An impromptu owner vs fan segment errupts. Brett Favre's impending Green Bay Packers Hall Of Fame induction is the topic.
Tiger Tiger Woods ya'll! That's all anyone seems to care about in the golf world these days. Should Tiger be playing in the PGA Championship? Is it possible for him to not be a heel (bad guy)? What should be the focus? Mike keeps praying for a Tiger resurgence, yet understands we might never see it again.
After the MLB Trade Deadline, Billy Beane sent a shocking win now message to all of baseball. Did "Mr. Money Ball" mortgage too much of the Athletic's future for one World Series run? How much pressure is really on Beane and his legacy?
The Howitzer and Buzz-saw keep on conquering sports radio, one day, at a time....

When sports dramas keep getting more and more asinine, Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo are here for the people (AKA the buffoons).
The Ray Rice domestic violence saga seems to be one that will never end. Did Rice's two game suspension by the NFL provide justice? Is NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's hypocrisy the main reason for the uproar? Did Rice's wife do other battered women a disservice, by politicking with the NFL to be easy on her abuser?
If only Rice's actions were the only issue. Stephen A Smith had some foot-in-mouth disease on ESPN's First Take TV show. Even though Smith's comments were wrong, can Mike maybe try to determine what the intended message was? Does punishing a controversial media personality heel for sparking controversy, as he's hired to do, hypocritical and asinine from ESPN?
You want winners in this mess? Look no further than the NFL and ESPN. They're both laughing and laughing and laughing straight to the bank.
Ray Rice isn't the only person to bring scandal to the shield recently. What could Tony Dungy have done to avoid the backlash he's received, after his statement on Michael Sam? Does having Michael Vick's mentor and defender on his resume make Dungy a hypocrite while stating he'd avoid the distraction around Sam's homosexuality?
Even though the NFL is all over the headlines, Major League Baseball is in the midst of its most exciting time, the Trade Deadline. Who will be moved? And which teams have the most pressure to seize the damn day?
They're often controversial. They're always (at least Mike is) right. Don't want to hear them? It's simple. DON'T LISTEN. With or without you, the Howitzer and Buzz-saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time....
He has the whole world in his hands. "He" being LeBron James. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo discuss how LeBron James trolled us all.
The Buzz-saw was wrong! Soak up this moment, haters. We may never see it again. LeBron James has taken his talents back to Cleveland. Returning home after the biggest heel turn in sports history didn't seem possible. But it is reality.
With the weight of Northeast Ohio and the Cleveland curse now once again on his shoulders, will LBJ eventually regret his decision? Is it actually possible the Miami Heat post LeBron could make another NBA Finals trip before the new look Cavaliers?! Will we have to go through this asinine circus again in two years? What is the NBA landscape, most notably, the Eastern Conference, with the Heat diminsihed and the Cavs owning the best in the world? Has pressure actually shifted focus to the perennially runner-up Indiana Pacers? Did Carmelo Anthony seal his fate to never appear in an NBA Finals by staying in New York?
Mike loves him some LeBron, but will be rooting for 1964 to stay in tact. What if his dreams come true? How will LeBron's Northeast Ohio people view him, if a championship is not delivered, especially having first left to win a couple elsewhere?
Major League Baseball had an All-Star Game and a Home Run Derby, as it does every year. Why did this years suck so much? What brought on the "ehhhh factor" Mike so eloquently labeled the events?
Tiger Tiger Woods, y'all! Tiger is on the British Open stage. What does this mean for golf, and what are his chances at finally winning his 15th major championship? If not TW, who?
Home or away, all the Howitzer and Buzz-saw does is win, by conquering sports radio, one day, at a time....
Unbelievable. The prodigal son returns home. LeBron James is taking his talents back to Cleveland. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo appreciates all that's asinine more than anybody. Another offseason of waiting and watching what LeBron will do was nothing shy of asinine, maybe even more now than in 2010. The question becomes, has LeBron James turned babyface again? Is heel LeBron dead forever?
While this podcast was recorded priot to LBJ's decision, your favorite sports genius' paint the picture of what LeBron may have had going through his head, a Miami Heat future post mini-dynasty, and the immense pressure that will be on LeBron on his second stint with the Cavs. If LeBron fails to break the curse and win a championship in Cleveland, will his return be for nothing? Will he truly remain beloved by Clevelanders without winning them a title? How does leaving Miami impact the rest of the free agent pool, namely Chris Bosh?
LeBron James isn't the only super-star who had a big decision to make this offseason. Carmelo Anthony is still leaving the Knicks in limbo. What will Carmelo do? What should Carmelo do? What are the factors to Carmelo's destination?
Without question the NBA wins the honors for continued most asinine and crazy offseasons. But the NHL isn't going away without a fight. Jarome Iginla is chasing that elusive Stanley Cup on his third team in as many years. James Neal's act finally ran its course in Pittsburgh. And maybe, most importantly, some incumbent powerhouses are locking up their own. Has the NHL landscape changed?
Now at the All-Star Game, which teams have surprised and disappointed this MLB season? Should we expect any "splash" type trades?
No decision needed. They're champions wherever they go. The Howitzer and Buzz-saw keep on conquering sports radio, one day, at a time....
#IBelieveThatWeWillWin has become the new trend for team USA during the World Cup. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo figured why not start a trend of their own.
#IBelieveThatItWillBeAsinine fits your favorite sports genius' thoughts on the asinine spark for soccer in the US. Will the craze around futbol continue post World Cup? Why do non fans randomly decide to go nuts for a sport they otherwise don't care about when in international competition? Can soccer ever increase to major sport level popularty in America (and we don't mean South America)? Mike and George provide a rare double rant on this never ending debate. Oh, and what are USA's legit chances, after getting through the "Group of Death?"
Never before has a draft seemed so much in the background. With another NBA offseason free agent frenzy, how will the NBA Draft impact teams and players looking to cash in? Andrew Wiggins was selected with the number one overall pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Does this send the signal their out of the hunt for LeBron? Or as Mike puts it, maturely realized they never had a shot in the first place? What's the next domino to fall in LeBron and Carmelo Anthony's fate?
No East Coast MLB bias, because the West is on center stage this season. Clayton Kershaw and Tim Lincecum joined some elite company. What do their no-hitters mean historically and for their teams the rest of the season? George waxes poetic on the miserable state of the Home Run Derby. Mike laughs in his face.
Here's a hash-tag for ya: #HBSConquering. The Howitzer and Buzz-saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time....
Once baseball is front and center, you know summer is officially here on the sports calander. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo wax poetic on an asinine reunion weekend, and go from crowning champions, to opening their ears to the crack of the bat.
With both the NBA and NHL concluding their seasons, it's all about Major League Baseball. Before the excitement of the pennant races can be fully focused on, your favorite sports genius' must pay their proper respects to a legend.
Tony Gwynn, one of the best pure hitters in history, lost his battle with cancer. Where does Mr. Padre rank among the all-time hitters? Does his fatal connection with chewing tabacco stain his graceful playing career? Ted Williams can now talk hitting again.
Every MLB season is filled with memorable parts, that fans will never forget. Has an abundance of usually medicore teams contending ruined that for the 2014 season? Will the Kansas City Royals continue to shock the American League? Are the Royals more likely to remain at the top of the Central than the Blue Jays are leading the East? Which teams have a shot at going from worst to first with still three months to go?
Over in the NL, is it possible so many teams will feel they have a chance, the trade deadline will see little selling acivity?
Motorehead (Triple H's WWE theme) blasts, as the Howitzer and Buzz-saw play a game of contender/pretender.
Even though the playoffs are over, that doesn't mean the NBA loses its flair for the dramatic. Another asinine free agency bonanza offseason is upon us. What "decison" will LeBron James make? Mike explains how Dwyane Wade actually holds the keys to the Miami Heat's future.
What don't they conquer? We'll wait. The Howitzer and Buzz-saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time...
