Juvenile, Pardon Me: Week 3 of Hard Knocks ’09

Let’s be honest, this was not a great episode, but with 3 weeks down, here are our latest observations about HBO’s Hard Knocks; Training Camp with the Cincinnati Bengals.

-Is Corey Lynch related to John Lynch in some way? They have the same name, same number, same position, same.. umm.. hue. It probably doesn’t matter. It looks like he’ll be cut in favor of Tom Nelson, anyway.

-On the rookie talent show:

1)  Making fun of Dhani Jones was good.

2) The Somoan dancing scared me.

3) The mocking of Andre Smith was funny but may prove awkward if and when he signs.

Overall, It wasn’t quite “The State,” but the Bengals rookies did a nice job.

-Mike Zimmer has a foul mouth. I would curse a lot too if i coached the Bengals defense, though

-Dede Dorsey threw up on the sideline. I don’t need to see that.

-Who pays for Andre Smith’s agent to show up in a chauffeur driven limo? Is it the guy’s big fat client who currently isn’t drawing a paycheck. Maybe if your rent a Corrolla at the airport and drive yourself to the Stadium, you can lower your demands a bit and maybe get that tub of lard into camp.

-Chil(‘)(d) Please: This was a big Ochhocinco episode: First of all, he busted out two fantastic phrases.  “Kiss the Baby,” his way of declaring that something is fait accompli. Second, and perhaps more important, Ochocinco condiewoms: “They’ll catch everything your Johnson shoots.” I also enjoy his garbage bags full of gold cleats, and his pregame chat with Bill Belichick. That was all prelude, however, to #85 taking over for Shayne Graham as the Bengals placekicker. His extra point proved to be the game winner.  He truly is the most interesting footballer in the world.
