The HBS: Ghosts, Goblins, & Asininity
By: Mike Asti and George Gerbo
Tis’ the season for ghosts and goblins. Tis’ the season for every sport to meet, for an overdose of asininity. Mike “the Buzz-saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo are here for your sports analysis and asinine drama needs.
The San Francisco Giants complete their dynasty, with a third World Series title in five seasons. Even though the Giants have the parade and trophy, the focus also needs to be on the remarkable story of the 2014 Kansas City Royals run. Would San Francisco have won without the heroics of Madison Bumgarner? Simply, NO. Where does Bumgarner’s jaw dropping postseason rank among baseball’s history? Where will both the dynastic Giants and the drought breaking Royals go in the future? Is Buster Posey now a Derek Jeter type? Mike tries to get George to give KC their due and gives an epic rant on just how ridiculous “Big Game” James Shield’s nickname is.
Hulk Hogan was loved, joined the nWo, and then repented to his people. LeBron James is in the midst of a similar face turn for the ages. With LBJ back in Cleveland, just how good will the Cavs be? For this answer, first check the weak Eastern Conference. Which East team poses the best threat to LeBron’s homecoming? Besides the Spurs, who else is among the West’s elite? The Clippers? Golden State? Houston? Portland? The Lakers? <– HAHAHAHA.
College football’s initial playoff bracket has been released. Mike explains why it shows the committee appreciates an overall body of work and is getting it right. An unpopular opinion can still be the correct one.
The Howitzer and Buzz-saw, conquering sports radio, one day, at a time….
