Now that August is here, it means that the National Football League isn’t far behind. Training camps are underway all over the country and that’s especially true for the Miami Dolphins, the subject of this year’s edition of HBO/NFL Films’ Hard Knocks.
The premiere is set for August 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
With Chad “Don’t Call Me Ochocinco” Johnson and new coach Joe Philbin in the mix, there should be plenty of good television over the span of five weeks.
Let’s look at the HBO press release.
