Got a hot link (please click this) for you all this afternoon that I thought I would share. Apparently, a Titans fan named David Farris has put together a petition to get your very own Tennessee Titans on HBO’s HardKnocks. If you’ve ever seen the program, then you know that it’s something that would only fly on HBO. And if you have indeed seen it, then I can only hope it wasn’t one of the seasons that the Dallas Cowboys were on it. If we learned anything from them, it’s that they are indeed “America’s Team”. Self-absorbed, greedy and completely dysfunctional.
Anyway, can’t you just imagine a mic’d up (and more importantly winded) LenDale White running/jogging/dogging sprints or defensive line coach Jim Washburn and his creative collection of curse words being tossed around the practice field? Do you know how beautiful the glisten is off of Jeff Fisher’s mustache in the 98 degree Tennessee summer sun? Could be some pretty good stuff. I don’t know that the organization would even be down to do it, considering the shroud of secrecy that it usually falls under, but you never know. We can at least shoot for the 1000 signatures the petition needs and see where it goes from there.
Thanks to reader Ritter 24 (aka “FatAlbertPainsworth”) for the tip. If we could give an award for best reader/commentor/awesome dude, Ritter (any of them for that matter) would give the rest of you a run for your money. Just sayin’, it’s time to step our game up people…
