    April 15: Spring Fever with Stanley Cup Madness

    in Sports

    Spring is fully in the air and hockey is delivering its own version of madness. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo go bracket to bracket dissecting the Stanley Cup Playoffs. 


    Is the current NHL postseason divisional format asinine or entertaining? Are the normal elite teams weaker this year? Will it finally be time for Alexander Ovechkin and the Capitals to embark on a deep run? Can the Rangers and Ducks turn great regular seasons into a championship? How much pressure is on Carey Price and Montreal? The Blackhawks experienced talent, the Canada impact, the Penguins and Red Wings uncommon struggling star power ways, the curse of the Blues. All these questions and topics will be bantered about. 


    In addition to a Stanley Cup Playoff preview, the Major League Baseball season is almost two weeks old. Which teams have played above themselves so far? Which favorites will rise to the occasion as the season progresses? Mike calls out Bryce Harper, asking the hyped superstar to give him an entire season of meeting expectations. 


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

    John Carver Show - GO FISH! (Andy Stanley)

    in Self Help

    Matt 4:18-20 18 As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 19 "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men." 20 At once they left their nets and followed him. Andy Stanley makes this observation: When Jesus called his disciples, he told them what he wanted to make them to be. He didn’t say, I want to make you to be more disciplined (although that would have been great). He didn’t say I want to make you more religious. He didn’t say, I want to make you more theologically astute so you can answer any questions about the mysteries of the universe. He said…I want to make you to be something very special and very specific. I want to make you fishers of men. Now it makes sense that he would use this metaphor. We know that at least four of his 12 disciples had been apprenticed in the fishing industry: James, John, Peter, and Andrew. Three of those four were actually in his inner circle (Peter, James, John). 


    It also makes sense that he would use this comparison because when he called them they were actually fishing at that moment. So he said, you have been an apprentice in the fishing business, and its great that you are good at catching fish and selling them for profit. But I am going to apprentice you in a brand new business with profit for eternity. I am going to teach you to do what I do and make you fishers of men. This is still one of the primary objectives that Jesus has for his followers. So let’s ask the question: How many of you have chosen to follow Christ?

    John Carver Show - Marital Expectations (Andy Stanley)

    in Self Help

    Andy Stanley has a way of sharing insights on so many subjects.  This talk on marriage is no different.  In this talk he shares:


    New husbands and wives and dreams and goals for their marriage, what roles they will fill, they desire a great marriage even what the wife wears to bed.


    There are financial goals...all these desires have "I" in common.  Every bride and groom walk down the aisle with a box of desires.


    Once the marriage happens, and without really knowing what's happening, married people take all their history and expectations on their new spouse.  Good desires become expectations.  That kind of pressure can be dangerous to a marriage.  They dynamic, instantly, changes because there are two big "I's" in the marriage.


    Selfishness, in a marriage, can destory expectations and can erode trust.


    In some marriage the "dominant" spouse thinks they're in control.


    It's very easy, for me, to be me.  It is very easy for you to be you.


    Conforming to someone else's expectations is very stressful.  We are individuals.


    Some marriages are based on compromise.  It goes good for a while then it starts to implode.


    Your focus of your attention has to be about each other.  


    When you settle in to compromise the marriage is an "I" marriage.


    Discontent can destroy what brought you and your spouse together.


    A desire migrated into an expectation where you say "You owe me" then romance suffers greatly.

    The Exchange - We Now Join the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Already in Progress

    in Sports

    Why in the world is anyone talking about anything other than, you know, sports actually being played right now? Shoutout to all talking about a third-string quarterback.


    On The Exchange, Jason will be joined by frequent guest and fellow colleague at The Sports Fan Journal, Dillon Friday to talk about the ongoing first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.


    There are plenty of questions to ask as sixteen teams slowly whittle down to eight. Can the Pittsburgh Penguins restore some of their luster against the favorites to win the East in the New York Rangers? Will the Islanders continue the party to close out Nassau Coliseum? What can we make of the most interesting series going between St. Louis and Minnesota? Further, what can we take from the commanding series leads by Montreal and Anaheim, the latter with three brilliant comeback wins against the Winnipeg Jets?


    Come through The Exchange live in the chat room, on Twitter (@asportsscribe, @noclassfriday) and on the phone line at 347-202-0247. Don't forget to favorite the show on Stitcher Radio!

    Horror Play 17 (The Stanley Parable)

    in Video Games
















    You are Stanley. You work in an office. You decide to leave the office one day and explore. The narrator helps guide Stanley around, but it's up to you whether you want to listen to the narrator or deviate off course. You end up finding that the office is more than just an office. The Stanley Parable is a popular indie game that some may call more an experience rather than an actual game. There are no wrong choices. We play this experience, and while not truly horrific, we rate it anyway!

    John Carver Show - Guardrails Me and the Mrs. (Andy Stanley)

    in Self Help

    On Today's Show I will be sharing some, real life, advice from Andy and Sandra Stanley about Guardrails.  Some of what you will hear includes:


    So we’re driving along, and I’m trying to think up something to say or ask, and here’s what came
    out of my mouth, and this only happened one time. It’s a great line, but it wasn’t really a line. I
    was just desperate for something to say. Out of my mouth comes, “Hey, have you ever done any
    modeling?” What a great line that is. I’d never used it before or since, because we started dating
    and that was it. When I asked her that question, she answered yes, but the way she said yes, I
    sensed that maybe there’s a story there, and since were out of stuff to talk about, I kind of
    plunged in and said, “Well, tell me what happened.” And so she told me a story that was … this
    is, I think, when I fell in love with Sandra. The significance of the story may seem small today,
    but it was huge. I’ve shared this before, but you’ve never heard her share it.

    SS: Since I would live downtown, I had some opportunities to do some just little modeling
    things at the Atlanta Apparel Mart. It was just a few blocks away. I had a friend who had a showroom there, and so every now and then during the big shows I would come down and do
    some things for her, and through that I got invited to do this other little modeling thing that I
    didn’t ask enough questions about ahead of time. But I got there and it was in this hotel
    ballroom. So I got to my dressing room and I went out and did the first runway thing, came back,
    changed clothes, went out again and came back and looked at the next one and I thought, Oooh, I don’t really think I want to wear that.
