    412 Sports Talk 12/3/14

    in Sports

    In another "gold" quality edition of 412 Sports Talk, Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti soaks up the hate and spits more sports talk fire. 


    This week, Mike will be joined by a familiar voice to the Pens Initiative airwaves, the one and only Steel Dad. These two try to bring some logic to what's been wrong with the Steelers of late. Will this team make the playoffs? How much concern should there be over Ben Roethlisberger's apparent wrist injury? You can find Steel Dad at SteelCityBlitz.com. 


    In addition to the talk with Steel Dad, Mike touches on the Bortuzzo hit and tells Penguin fans why any venom directed towards Jaromir Jagr is outrageously asinine.

    November 28: Turkey & Football

    in Sports

    Tis' the season for turkey and football. While giving thanks is cool, Thanksgiving is the man's holiday. Thanksgiving is all about food and football. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo gives thanks for food, football, and also the asininity that is the sports world. 


    Richard Sherman cut a pro wrestling style promo, bringing to light the hypocrisy of the National Football League. This was done to defend teammate Marshawn Lynch, who to say doesn't like speaking to the media would be a grave understatement. Does Lynch, as a professional athlete, have an obligation to speak to the media? Did Sherman have a point in everything he said about the NFL? Are Sherman's opinions that of the majority of NFL players? 


    This week on "As The Asinine RGIII Turns!" Robert Griffin III has finally been benched by the Washington Redskins. How long had this been in the works? Is RGIII's career in DC officially over? Has he sucked? Yes? Has he been an immature buffoon? Absolutely. Which played more of a factor? 


    The MLB Hot-Stove is boiling over already. Pablo Sandoval left San Francisco to get PAID by the Boston Red Sox. George moans about loyalty. Mike explains overrated or not, it's all about the MONEY. 


    Even while full of tryptophan, the Howitzer and Buzz-saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time....

    November 20: Dear RGIII, You're Asinine!

    in Sports

    While George "the Howitzer" Gerbo always tries to see the good in things and be optimistic, Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti keeps it real! Most don't like the brutal truth. Well if you don't want honesty, don't listen to the Howitzer & Buzz-saw Show! 


    The Robert Griffin III love affair is over. Another week, another lack luster performance and soundbite drama from RGIII. Have even his most loyal supporters (cough, George), jumped ship? Not just the fans, but have the Redskins decided they need a new future at quarterback? What is the future of RGIII and the Redskins, both together, or apart? There's been a regression on the field, while at the same time, there's been a steady increase of immaturity and asininity from Robert Griffin III.


    From perhaps the most asinine franchise of the year (again), to a more stable organization competition wise, but one that is no stranger to controversy. The Pittsburgh Steelers released LeGarrette Blount. An offseason encounter with the law and walking out on his team prior to a game became too much. Days later Blount was signed by the team he powered to the playoffs a season ago, the New England Patriots. Was bouncing Blount the right decision for Pittsburgh? How will his second Patriots tenure go? 


    College football chaos never takes a week off. Did the committee get the current playoff bracket right? Now with a loss, what can Mississippi State do to remain in the top four? How comfortable should Alabama be? Could Ohio State quietly sneak in? 


    They bring you a heavy dose of reality. They are the Howitzer and Buzz-saw. They conquer sports radio, one day, at a time....

    November 13: Who Gets Redemption?

    in Sports

    With a fous on George's impending "redemption" and Mike's increased arrogance, the Howitzer and Buzz-saw bring a heavy dose of entertainment and analysis. 


    Every week the latest edition of the college football playoff bracket is released there's more and more controversy and drama. Your favorite sports genius' explain why uproar over these rankings is actually unnecessary. Mike and George debate the weight of head to head vs the eye test with TCU and Baylor. Despite a weaker schedule and a down ACC, is Florida State still a lock for a top four spot? Besides an undefeated FSU team, which other squad should feel the most comfortable getting a playoff position? Mike serves as defense attorney for Mississippi State, claiming even if they lose a game, a one loss MSU team should still be in the playoff. Could the often bridesmaid Oregon finally pull off a national title? 


    The Major League Baseball season is over on the field, so it's time to hand out the individual awards. Mike Trout gets his MVP. Has Trout already accomplished the best start to a career in MLB history? And Clayton Kershaw double fisting hardware becomes the crux of the conversation. Exactly why did Kershaw deserve the MVP, in addition to, the his third career Cy Young? 


    You want bizarre? You want asinine? Look no further than the 2014 NFL season. In a wild campaign, have any teams really emerged as truly elite? Will George ever believe in the Arizona Cardinals? How bad is the NFC South and is an evenly matched AFC North "good" or full of mediocrity? 


    Shine your championship rings, Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo conquer sports radio, one day, at a time....

    412 Sports Talk: 11/5/14

    in Hockey

    We're all about timing. This is a circumstance timing couldn't we better. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and "Mad" Chad Nolan go onair the day the Penguins announced a contract extension for Marc-Andre Fleury. 


    This couldn't possibly be more fitting. Two of the most polorizing men on the planet discuss one of the most polorizing athletes in Pittsburgh sports history. To best do this, Mike and Chad call upon the one and only Josh Yohe, Pens beat writer for the Tribune-Review. 


    Should Fleury have been re-signed? Is there now an even added amount of pressure on him? Was the timing of this extension odd? Did he get above what he's actually worth? All these qyestions and more are answered while Fleury counts his new straight cash, homie. 


    Ben Roethlisberger's the NFL MVP? Maybe not so asinine.

    October 30: Ghosts, Goblins, & Asininity

    in Sports

    Tis' the season for ghosts and goblins. Tis' the season for every sport to meet, for an overdose of asininity. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo are here for your sports analysis and asinine drama needs. 


    The San Francisco Giants complete their dynasty, with a third World Series title in five seasons. Even though the Giants have the parade and trophy, the focus also needs to be on the remarkable story of the 2014 Kansas City Royals run. Would San Francisco have won without the heroics of Madison Bumgarner? Simply, NO. Where does Bumgarner's jaw dropping postseason rank among baseball's history? Where will both the dynastic Giants and the drought breaking Royals go in the future? Is Buster Posey now a Derek Jeter type? Mike tries to get George to give KC their due and gives an epic rant on just how ridiculous "Big Game" James Shield's nickname is. 


    Hulk Hogan was loved, joined the nWo, and then repented to his people. LeBron James is in the midst of a similar face turn for the ages. With LBJ back in Cleveland, just how good will the Cavs be? For this answer, first check the weak Eastern Conference. Which East team poses the best threat to LeBron's homecoming? Besides the Spurs, who else is among the West's elite? The Clippers? Golden State? Houston? Portland? The Lakers? <-- HAHAHAHA. 


    College football's initial playoff bracket has been released. Mike explains why it shows the committee appreciates an overall body of work and is getting it right. An unpopular opinion can still be the correct one. 


    The Howitzer and Buzz-saw, conquering sports radio, one day, at a time....

    This edition of 412 Sports Talk goes endzone to endzone with Steeler talk. Who better to dish on a franchise soaked in drama than the Wordsmith of Asinine himself, Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti. 


    Mike is joined by the one and only Steel Dad, not to be confused with Pittsburgh Dad, as the two discuss if the Monday Night Football win over Houston really showed signs of an improving defense or was more an aberration? What should realistically be expected from the Steeles the rest of the season? Has the Ben Roethlisberger is an elite quarterback, yet isn't treated like one by his own organization, thinking gained steam? 


    Enjoy the sweet melodies of Mr. Asti's voice of gold.
