Sports Hub Underground: Getting pumped for the fall sports season
(Click here to subscribe to the Sports Hub Underground podcast.)
There’s nothing quite like NFL football season. And NHL hockey season. And wings. And nachos.
That about covers the main topics on the newest episode of the Sports Hub Underground podcast with Ty Anderson and me. You can listen in the above player. We go over the latest with the Boston Bruins, who are about two weeks away from the start of training camp, and the New England Patriots, who are just days away from the 2023 season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Here’s a rundown of the overarching thoughts on this week’s episode…
— The Boston Bruins have made yet another signing, with the addition of old friend Danton Heinen on a professional tryout agreement (PTO). Ty was at the Bruins’ captain’s practice earlier this week, and has little to report from a lighter day for the team. But as training camp approaches, Ty’s looking at all the Bruins’ moves and wondering about a battle brewing among the forwards.
— Patriots cornerback Jack Jones has beat his gun charges. It’s the harsh reality of the NFL and professional sports: if you’re talented enough, you can be a little more “above the law” than most other people. But it’s certainly a good development for the Patriots, and a relief that the guy’s life wasn’t totally ruined.
— Mac Jones is in an absolutely insane spot in the Patriots’ season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles. He’s facing the defending NFC champions, with a great pass-rush going against a banged-up and rusty Pats offensive line, on the day that the team is going to honor Tom Brady at halftime. All of New England better pray that it’s at least a close game at halftime, when the Brady celebration begins…
— To close things out, we draft our “Big 3” must-have food items at a football party.
