Be there or be glad you weren't.

Can't say who's more hard up, the Bungholes or HBO.  Didn't get enough Andre Smith at the combine?  You're in luck!

After living in Cincy during my college years I understand that the residents of that pathetic town probably think this is a big deal. 

Funny stuff Otis

Isn't Sage the resident Cincy dude?

HBO could probably save some production costs by simply splicing together some COPS footage.

No matter how bad things get with the economy, unemployment, foreclosures, crime, swine flu, Adam Lambert, etc., I can get up every day and thank Art that I don't have to send my kid to school with a Browns or Bengals jersey. Why don't they just bring up Southern Cal and Florida and send them down to play college teams!

There is, after all, a TON of charity work for Tim Tebow in Cincinatti.

For example, he could start a literacy program...

Perhaps he could straighten out Chad Ocho Cinco.  George Bush says there's a difference in eight five and eighty five, even in Mexican.

I'm not sure what's worse, the Bengals on HBO or the Cowboys reality tv show hosted by crackhead Irvin on Spike TV.  Leave it up to Jerry Jones...

http://www.dallascowboys.com/news/news.cfm?id=0098BD02-E40A-D43F-B25FB6476FFEE6D7

So basically they round up a bunch of Uncle Rico's and let them have at it.  Way to cheapen the game Jerry. clap

Of course, reality television is nothing new for the Cowboys. Last summer's training camp in Oxnard, Calif. was the team's second appearance on "Hard Knocks," HBO's behind-the-scenes look at an NFL camp and preseason. As the wheels came off the Cowboys down the stretch in 2008, it was easy to point to the team's involvement in the show as an early distraction.

In fact, of the four teams to be featured by HBO since the series began, only the 2001 Baltimore Ravens made the playoffs, losing in the Divisional round after winning the Super Bowl the previous season. After appearing on "Hard Knocks," the 2002 and 2008 Cowboys and 2007 Kansas City Chiefs had just an 18-30 record combined. The failings of those teams aside, Irvin says his show offers the Cowboys little downside.


Hard knocks curse?  More likely that they pick teams with "interesting personalitites" - good for TV, bad for football.  Or, in the case of the Chiefs, simply suck royally.
