    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....

    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!

    John Carver Show - Make Your Minutes Count (Andy Stanley)

    in Christianity

    Today's show is a talk given by Andy Stanley (http://northpoint.org/).  He is the son of Pastor Charles Stanley.  Andy's style has opened my eyes so many times to look at things differently.  Today's show is no exception.  "Make your Minutes Count" is about prayer.  


    When was the last time you heard someone teach a lesson on how to pray, why we should pray and so much more information that could get you to look at prayer in a whole new way.


    Prayer is a "two way street."  Listen to Andy's words and consider putting into practice some or all of what he shares in his talk.
