Well, now it’s time to turn things up.
With the season opener of the 11th season of HBO’s Hard Knocks, the Rams had the air of surprise. The team had yet to play a preseason game, and relocation was still the watchword. Eric Kush had his tank tops. Aaron Donald had his ping pong.
The novelty carried the show.
Episode 2? Not gonna happen.
The preseason is underway. We’ve got injuries. It’s time for Hard Knocks to turn up.
Sure, there will still be the inanity of roster building, of the back end of the roster. And yes...the word is that William Hayes’ ridiculous theories of mermaids and dinosaurs will be a central theme of the evening. If anything, it’s surprising it didn’t surface for the season premiere..
In any case, buckle up. It’s time for football to come into view for this season of Hard Knocks as it chronicles the shaping of the 2016 Los Angeles Rams.
