I know that for many, mid-august is a bit sad because it means the the summer is starting to wind down...back to school, back to snow, etc...but for me, mid august means we're not far off from my favorite season, Autumn, and my favorite sport...FOOTBALL!
One sign each year that football is nearly here is HBO's HARD KNOCKS. If you've never seen it, the show is shot documentary style and shows the inner workings of an NFL team during training camp and the preseason, leading up to the start of the year. The follow rookies trying to make the 53-man roster and vets trying to get ready for another grueling year.
This season, they'll follow the Detroit Lions! Check out the trailer, the show begins streaming tonight at 9pm on HBOMax!
