Very rarely in life do things go exactly how we want them to. Well, thanks to HBO we got something to go exactly how we wanted it to.
JON GRUDEN’S RAIDERS ON HARD KNOCKS. THE CIRCUS WE ALL KNEW WE NEEDED.
I think all of us as NFL fans know this will be an entertaining train wreck. It will be like that movie Unstoppable with Denzel Washington where the train is out of control and you’re really just watching to see when and where it crashes. I have the over/under on Antonio Brown being a disaster at Week 10, but hopefully it’s well under…and in training camp.
Gruden will have all-time soundbites. Vontaze Burfect will start a fight in a training camp practice. AB will have a scene where he pulls up like a diva in a ridiculous car. Also, Richie Incognito exists on this team. I am so excited that HBO decided to follow up on their Chernobyl mini-series with another mini-series about a bonafide disaster in the Oakland Raiders.
I’m also excited for the return of the microphones picking up the pads crashing during drills. I don’t know what it is but those noises of guys working hard motivate me to also work hard. My best workouts of the year come in late August when Hard Knocks debuts. I crank it up from 10 minutes on the Stairmaster to a full 12.
