The HBS: This Show Is Royal!

by Asti

By: Mike Asti and George Gerbo

ALCS - Baltimore Orioles v Kansas City Royals - Game Four

After a brief vacation, Mike “the Buzz-saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo are back and better than ever (of course they’d say that). During their break, asininity in the sports world was at a premium, as usual.

Royals 1

Royals 2

In a shocking turn of events, the Kansas City Royals rolled through the American League to reach the franchises first World Series since 1985. Has this run by the Royals been more a lucky ridiculous hot streak or something to be admired? Mike vs George goes 12 rounds on this topic. You want someone who is not surprised and feels asking the legitimacy of a team going undefeated in a postseason is asinine, we give you the Buzz-saw. You want someone who has never bought into the Royals and characterizes their dominance as an “aberration” pennant, we give you the Howitzer. Has baseball actually witnessed a generational trend of these “aberration” pennants or championships, by teams breaking long droughts and seemingly coming out of nowhere?

Giants

MLB: NLCS-St. Louis Cardinals at San Francisco Giants

Giants 2

Kansas City is in the Fall Classic for the first time in 29 years. San Francisco, on the other hand, has reached their third World Series in five seasons. Will a third championship (2010, 2012, 2014?) make the Giants a dynasty? What is it about this team that becomes a winning cockroach in the postseason? With some moving parts, who are the “faces” of this potential Giants dynasty?

LA Kings

Mike Babcock

The NHL is underway. Which teams have significantly improved? Are there some perennial contenders that will disappoint (cough, Detroit Red Wings)?

Miss SI

Ole Miss and Mississippi State are both at top of the college football rankings. Yes, you read that right. Did Notre Dame fall into the driver seat for a playoff spot?

HBS radio gold has returned, as the Howitzer and Buzz-saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time….
