I finally got around to watching my favourite television show that comes around once a year. I’m talking about the third season of HBO 24/7 Road to the Winter Classic.
Fans were robbed of this show last year due to the lockout shortened season, but it’s back.
Episode 1 wasn’t the best we have ever seen from 24/7 (hard to compete with Boudreau’s antics, Bryzgalov’s oddities or Tortorella’s tirades), but it had some good moments. At minimum, the show consistently gives a glimpse of what it is really like to be a player or coach in the National Hockey League.
You can watch it on Sportsnet in Canada on Sunday evenings, but they will bleep out all of the swear words. I think the show loses something when they censor it, but that’s what the internet is for!
Here is 24/7, episode 1 as seen on HBO:
