Tuesday night’s episode of Hard Knocks was a mixture of everything we love about the cult-favorite and a fair share of what we don’t necessarily crave while viewing something sports-related.
Nonetheless, it was another fantastic show that gave us a phenomenal glimpse into the lives of these men we root for on Sundays. This episode was just that much more intimate.
Aside from the powerful messages on social justice — I’ll get to that in my recap — we got some scenes of the brighter side of training camp. Whether it was a candid conversation between Melvin Ingram, Keenan Allen, and Mike Williams about receiver gloves or Anthony Lynn taking his running backs through the goal-line drill of jumping over a stack of agility bags, the Bolts were able to squeeze some laughter into an episode filled with uncomfortable moments.
At any rate, I just want to hear your thoughts on the latest episode.
