412 Sports Talk gets buzz-sawed again. Mike 'the Buzz-saw" Asti rants with his brilliant arrogant bravado.
Pens Initiative and Mike will be joined by Steel City Blitz's Steel Dad. Steel Dad takes another crack at the Buzz-saw, as the two discuss another Steelers Black Hole defeat, if all hope is now officially lost on the season, and most importantly and most asinine driven, if some of the in-house drama has resurfaced.
You can find Steel Dad at SteelCityBlitz.com and on Trib-Live Radio every Monday.

Mike "the BUZZ-SAW" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo cover all the asininity. Another NBA season is here. Can anybody dethrone the Heat? Is Chicago really the best East team to beat Miami, or is maybe the squad they've had the most trouble with, Indiana, the true top contender? Are teams like the new look Nets or the Knicks true threats?
Out West, is it time for a team like Memphis or the Warriors to go from sexy pick to finally getting over the hump? Are the Clippers for real or are they overrated? And of course, never count out the Spurs. How much drama will arise in Laker Land this season and how good are the Rockets? On paper it seems Houston is built for success, but will they do it their first year together?
Respects are paid to one of sports revolutionary all-time buzz-saws, Allen Iverson. No, we're not talkin' 'bout practice! We're talking about a legend officially retiring.

After only a few weeks, the NHL already has its first hit controversy. Did Niklas Kronwall see justice? And how can these attacks be prevented? Should Penguins rookie, Oli Maatta, play the season, or should the future be considered?
Another NFL week is in the books, as some teams pull away from the pack, while others become more asinine by the day. Are the Chiefs as good as their undefeated record indicates? Do the Vikings have any idea what their doing? (NO)

Everyone always loves a good divorce. Peyton Manning's divorce from the Indianapolis Colts was without drama and seemingly amicable. Well now, with his first homecoming as a member of the Denver Broncos, things are starting to sour.
