Miko To The RescueApril 20th, 2017
Some folks, like the creator, curator and overall guru of ProFootballTalk.com, the great Mike Florio, are bored with “Hard Knocks.”
They think it is the same show every year: Rookies try to make the team and some don’t and are told to go home, plus veteran players hanging with their families off the field and coaches and front office types wringing their hands over personnel matters with bubble players.
Joe isn’t in that camp, but it seems Eric Edholm of Yahoo! Sports is. He believes that the Bucs can save “Hard Knocks.” Why? Well, Edholm believes Miko Grimes can add needed excitement into the series.
Miko, wife of Bucs cornerback Brent Grimes, says whatever is on her mind. There is no such thing as political correctness with Miko. If you want her unvarnished truth, she will tell you but you best buckle up first. Her weekly podcast is proof.
And Edholm said someone like Miko would be a ratings spike for HBO.
Oh yeah. As in the wife of Bucs cornerback Brent Grimes. As in the woman who once fired off some salty shots at the Miami Dolphins, the team that used to employ her husband, calling out their quarterback and owner. As in the one who once was arrested for disorderly conduct, battery on a police officer and resisting arrest with violence before a Dolphins game. Yeah, that Miko.
Miko might go low, but she also aims high, folks. There might be no harder hitter in Tampa this summer, and the cameras need to be rolling.
Her Twitter feed is absolutely bat-spit crazy but must-follow material. And yes, she already has sounded off on “Hard Knocks,” promising a little “tea” for viewers should she end up on camera.
People: This has incredible potential.
Joe wholeheartedly agrees. Miko would bring — in the immortal words of Chucky — “juice” to the show.
Between Miko and America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, and the drama between Nick Folk and Roberto Aguayo, this summer’s “Hard Knocks” has serious potential.
