Hard Knocks is less than a month away, premiering August 7th on HBO.  After what seemed like an eternity in deciding on a team, the Miami Dolphins were selected.  And, after watching the trailer, it's amazing to consider how excited one can get for football season to finally arrive.  Just watching slo-mo footage of training camp tells me September can't get here fast enough.  And, I'm warming up to the idea of the Dolphins as this year's franchise under the spotlight with a rookie QB and head coach working their first training camp.  Whatever happens, all of that uncertainty about a successful season of Hard Knocks should be a distant memory come August 7th.  It's just another sign football is near.
