The best show on TV right now is 24/7 Penguins/Capitals, which is worth watching even if you are not a hockey fan.
But this week’s episode, which premiered Wednesday night on HBO and will be shown numerous times on HBO channels over the next week, included brief behind-the-scenes footage of the Steelers at Heinz Field, as well as interviews with linebackers James Farrior and James Harrison.
(I haven’t seen any YouTube videos of Harrison’s remarks, so here’s the official “enforcers” clip from HBO.com. If you happen to come across the former, leave a note in the comments and we’ll add it here.
Farrior simply offered his support to the hometown Pens in the upcoming Winter Classic at Heinz Field. Harrison, though, offers more. He points out that he can’t skate well, but that he is available for the NHL fights. It is a funny, brief interview and Harrison – as usual – does not smile.
If you want to just watch the Steeler part, set your DVR and fast-forward to 45 minutes into the show. But the entire episode and series thus far has been quality viewing.
