The HBS: A Whole New World
By: Mike Asti and George Gerbo
It’s a whole new world these days. A world that revs up the engines for sports talk. A world that is much more accepting, even amongst the sports community, but also a world with tons of buffoonery for everyone. Mike “the Buzz-saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo run through this bizarre world with immense destruction and entertainment at a premium.
Major League Baseball, usually hesitant to change, has announced a new instant replay system. This new policy is stemming from mass controversy over pivotal calls in the playoffs and key games the past few seasons. It will involve managers receiving challenges, hoping to take away all the flack of the umpires. While this sounds wonderful, is there a devils advocate side to this coin? How will a replay system in baseball be advanced over the years?
It wouldn’t be NFL training camp if there wasn’t asinine drama. The Washington Redskins franchise is rolling in drama that would be worthy of any soap opera. Robert Griffin III and Mike Shanahan have a different of opinion on how RGIII’s recovery should be handled. Why is this all being way overblown? Is there a right and wrong? Maybe both coach and player are actually right and acting in the expected manner.
Professional wrestling is even discussed, as WWE star Darren Young is now openly gay. One half of the Prime Time Players tag-team has come out to the world. There’s been openly gay professional wrestlers in the past, but this marks the first one to be active during his announcement. Will this be used as part of a future storyline? Any chances this is actually a “work?” Mike explains how this wouldn’t have been possible in previous more not breaking character obsessed eras.
Despite a whole new world, the Howitzer and Buzz-saw continue to shock the world, by conquering sports radio, one day, at a time….
