The HBS: Straight Clowin’ Yo
By: Mike Asti and George Gerbo
Straight clowin’ is the phrase of the week. And those words perfectly describe the asininity of some recent news. The circus that has loomed over Major League Baseball for over a decade just won’t go away. Another steroid scandal is plaguing America’s past time. Will star players like Ryan Braun and Alex Rodriguez suffer 100 game suspensions, as a result of lying about PED use? Is it wise for Bud Selig and company to be in full fledged attack mode, unlike their previous methods in handling steroids? Do players truly have a deterrent, if the Hall of Fame is not on their minds?
All the straight clowin’ in baseball has overshadowed the ongoing climb for championships in both basketball and hockey. In the NBA, we have our final two. The San Antonio Spurs look to put another stamp on their dynasty meet the defending champion Miami Heat and their hype machine. Can LeBron get the job done, if his fellow “Big 3” mates don’t join the party? How will his legacy be effected with another finals loss? Who is the true favorite in this series? And some Spurs praising will be at a premium.
While the NBA is at the finals stage, the NHL is still looking to determine the matchup for Lord Stanley’s Cup. What happened to the Penguins? Seriously. What the HELL happened?! How will this debacle and complete choke job shape the future of the Pittsburgh franchise? That discussion could go on for days.
Straight clowin’ is a way of life for the fools and buffoons out there. The Howitzer and Buzz-saw conquer straight clowin’ and sports radio, one day, at a time….
