Man, I was so excited to see the hbo special last year (penns/caps), and really enjoyed the behind-the-scenes stuff, especially the mic'ed up players/officials, and seeing the coaches address their players.. So, i watched last week's premiere (philly/rangers) and dug it pretty well, but last nite's episode left me sort of embarrassed for the creators.. Who wants to watch slo-mo montages of a game with REO speedwagon or some similar dreck as the 'soundtrack', or tender off-ice moments w/players leaving home, roomies waking from their afternoon slumber, etc.,??
I want the raw shit from the games and the coaches!
Is this show rapidly becoming a parody of itself?
