The HBS: Riding The Lying Train
By: Mike Asti and George Gerbo
No ones favorite sports topic is back. Yes, while it’s asinine, Mike “the Buzz-saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo don’t even appreciate discussing this. Performance enhancing drugs. Steroids.
The cloud that continues to loom over sports, most notably baseball, just won’t go away. Major League Baseball officially handed down its first punishment in regards to the latest PED scandal, the Biogenesis lab. Ryan Braun, the 2011 NL MVP, has been suspended for the remainder of the season. What impact will this have on America’s past time? Can Braun ever repair his image? Is there enough of a deterrent for players to be clean? When will this ever be OVER? All those questions will be answered. Wait. Who are we kidding? No, they won’t. Some of these questions might never even have answers.
From one tainted super-star to another. With Braun suffering his fate, is Alex Rodriguez next? What will A-Rod’s punishment be, with apparently more evidence? Are the Yankees actually running a conspiracy against him?
All the steroid asininity is not the only baseball talk of the show. MLB’s trade deadline is fast approaching and a couple deals have already gone down. Which teams are truly contenders?
In an almost wall to wall baseball program, another gold quality edition of the HBS closes with a career that will never end and mullet that won’t stop growing, Jaromir Jagr.
It’s a soap opera. Tune in for another edition of the Howitzer and Buzz-saw Show, as it conquers sports radio, one day, at a time….
