Hard Knocks is HBO’s sports documentary series that follows one NFL team through its pre-season training camp. The show takes a reality television-style look at the drama involved in getting a team ready for the upcoming season including the pranks they play on each other, personal/family issues and of course, the battle for positioning.
Last season followed the Kansas City Chiefs and focused on the battle between Damon Huard and Brodie Croyle for the starting QB position as well as Larry Johnson’s extended contract holdout and some pranks that were played on incoming rookie Dwayne Bowe.
It was an interesting series for sure but it will probably pale in comparison to what’s in store for the newest season which focuses on the Dallas Cowboys.
As if Terrell Owens’ antics aren’t enough to fill an entire season alone, add Pacman Jones, Tony Romo, Jessica Simpson, Jerry Jones and of course Arkansas’ own Felix Jones to the mix and HBO should have no problems filling in any remaining gaps in programming drama.
The latest episodes will air in August and will mark the second time in which the Cowboys are featured in the show’s four total seasons.
Here’s hoping we don’t have to hear Jerry Jones talking any more about Felix Jones’ “bubble butt.”
