HBO To Air 90-Minute Hard Knocks Special

Football fans won’t have five-weeks of Hard Knocks this summer, but HBO is airing a 90-minute special celebrating the past ten years of the sports documentary on Aug. 31 at 10:00 p.m.

“We know football fans are hungry for compelling NFL programming and we think they’ll love the 10th anniversary special,” said Rick Bernstein, executive producer, HBO Sports.

According to HBO, the Hard Knocks special will feature moments from previous seasons that featured the Baltimore Ravens (2001), Dallas Cowboys (2002, 2008), Kansas City Chiefs (2007), Cincinnati Bengals (2009), and the New York Jets (2010) along with new interviews and never-before-seen out-takes. An official title for the show will be announced in August.

“The first 10 years of Hard Knocks has been the ultimate fly-on-the-wall NFL training camp experience,” said Steve Sabol, president of NFL Films. “We look forward to taking a look back at those shows and reintroducing the fans to those characters who made the decade of Hard Knocks so memorable.”

 

ESPN New York Radio Host Reveals He's Gay

ESPN New York 1050 host Jared Max revealed Thursday that he’s gay.

“Are we ready to have our sports information delivered by someone who’s gay? Well, you know what, we are gonna find out,” Max said. “Because for the last 16 years I’ve been living a free life among my close friends and family, and I’ve hidden behind what is a gargantuan-size secret here in the sports world. I am gay.”

The 37-year-old is the host of Maxed Out In The Morning. Max admitted to suffering through depression and suicidal thoughts while keeping his sexuality a secret.

“I don’t share this news with you today to get a reaction or to make news, of being a New York sportscaster working on an all-sports radio station,” Max said. “I do this today because it seems to me there’s never been a better time.”

The Pittsburgh Steelers are in this weekend’s Super Bowl. (Did you hear?) The city is, understandably, excited. The company from which the team takes its name, however, not so much.

According to a memo sent out by the management of U.S. Steel, employees who miss work on Sunday or Monday without a good reason will face “severe disciplinary action.”

USW International vice president Tom Conway isn’t taking the news lightly. Read more
