The HBS: The Galvanizing Effect
By: Mike Asti and George Gerbo
At a time that has truly showed the connection between sports and humanity, in the wake of the Boston Marathon Bombing, Mike “the Buzz-saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo do what they do best, provide an entertaining distraction. Who better than the ultimate “heel” (Mike) and “baby face” (George) sports media foils to give perspective, debate, and most importantly, laughter, during a time we need it the most.
In typical asinine soap opera fashion, Kobe Bryant’s efforts to carry the Lakers to the playoffs was put to rest, following a serious injury. With Kobe out, can the rest of the Lakers still crawl together? Who is to blame for this doomsday situation in LA? And what will his absence mean for the future of one of sports darling franchises?
Not only did Tiger Woods not earn another green jacket and major championship, but he was surrounded by controversy all throughout golf’s grandest weekend. Was Tiger’s “drop” at The Masters handled properly? How will Tiger fare in upcoming majors?
As we continue with the Buzz-saw’s favorite rant topics, the NHL announced a slate of outdoor games for the 2013-2014 season. One was apparently not nearly enough. Is an abundance of outdoor games ruining a once unique event? In addition to next seasons news, this season is ending, as teams attempt to secure playoff positioning.
Baseball closes another jam packed HBS. FYI, to all panic buttons being pressed and parades being scheduled: STOP!
Can George calm Mike down in the midst of a gauntlet of asininity? He tries. But it’s really an impossible task.
Even in our darkest hours, the American people are conquerers. And the Howitzer and Buzz-saw assist, by conquering sports radio, one day, at a time….
