The HBS: Riot Against Buffoonery
By: Mike Asti and George Gerbo
The sports world is jam-packed with asinine drama and news. Mike “the Buzz-saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo guide you through this minefield.
It’s the typical heel vs baby matchup of the century. Your favorite sports genius’ give their picks of the Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao fight. George, the face, goes Pac-Man. Mike, the heel, goes Floyd $Money$. Mayweather vs Pacquiao is something we’ve been waiting for over half a decade, but it is far from the only major event of the week.
Major League Baseball is through one month of the news season, but some off the field issues are taking over the headlines. A game was played in Baltimore buffoon free, so without fans! Was there any other option in light of the riots? Alex Rodriguez is chasing Willie Mays’ 660 home runs. This is a baseball milestone to everyone but the New York Yankees. Are the Yankees right to ignore this? Is there really any legal way the Yankees can not pay him the bonus? From star whose franchise hates him, to one that got shipped out. Josh Hamilton is a Texas Ranger again. Why didn’t the Angels get anything of value in this deal?
Oh yeah, there are postseasons going on. As we head towards the second round in the NBA, how does the landscape look? Did the Cavs title hopes get hit without Kevin Love? What’s the level of concern around Atlanta and the optimism around the Wizards and Bulls? San Antonio won’t die.
We are also in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Can the Wild and Flames derail a seemingly destined Chicago vs Anaheim West Final? Which superstar needs to step up in the East? Stamkos? Nash? Ovechkin?
Expect the NFL Draft recap discussed on the next episode. Our guarantee is Cleveland will surely “Cleveland.”
