HBO showed that they know what's up with the latest installment of Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Miami Dolphins last night. The dynamic duo of Lauren Tannehill and Jackie Long were prominently featured, as was the girlfriend of the now cut tight end, Les Brown. Sucks for Les, sucks more for us because no more shots of Jamie Lynn Crandall.
We were also introduced, albeit briefly, to center Mike Pouncey's girlfriend, Kristian Fong who pointed out that the Dolphins needed to win because she 'likes to talk shit.' Love it.
Yes, there was compelling football stuff going on too. Guys were getting cut and that's hard to watch. The Dolphins continue to struggle offensively and if you're a fan, that's hard to watch. New head coach Joe Philbin looks dangerously close to losing some of the team and they still have one preseason game left. Even more shocking, rookie starting QB Ryan Tannehill having absolutely zero clue what teams are in what NFL divisions. Matt Moore should have been all over him (even more) for that. Tannehill's excuse? He didn't watch a lot of NFL as a kid. Unacceptable.
Tough times in South Beach, and the worst part is the crews broadcasting the games probably won't even give us cutaways of the hottie WAGs once the season starts.
Check out the best screen grabs from last night's episode, and try not to think about the fact there's only one week left of the show.
