Tonight is the night you’ve all been waiting for.
HBO debuts Hard Knocks: Los Angeles this evening and the show’s premiere brings with it a sense of rebirth. Both the Chargers and Rams unveiled new uniforms this offseason, combined with the fact they’ll both be entering their first seasons playing together in their new home, SoFi Stadium.
Overall, it’s another opportunity to kick things off on the right foot in 2020.
So while tonight might just seem like any other premiere, it’s actually a bit more than that. This series can go a long way in helping decide the future success of this team in terms of creating and nurturing a fan base. While the Rams had a head start after their move in 2016, the Chargers started with next to nothing in LA.
So here’s to hoping the personalities and characters we’ve all come to love on this team get their rightful chance to shine in front of a national audience.
