Holy shit I am HYPED for this. I don’t know about you guys but I literally did not take my eyes off the screen for any of the 24/7 shows. They were like drugs to me, I couldn’t shut it off. Between having a GGSU legend on the show for two years in a row and looking at the smokes for wives these guys had, I was in heaven.
The fact that EPIX is going to follow 4 teams around instead of two blows my mind. How are they going to find the time to tell the story of both games? How are they are going to show show off all the sick shit that the boys do? How will I see all of their rocket wives? I literally cannot wait to find out!
But seriously, getting a chance to live vicariously through these guys for the month before they play in one of the sickest events in all of sports is so cool. It makes me wish I had worked a lot harder at hockey. Or just been a lot better in general, because I just really wasn’t that good. But I guess that’s what the show is for eh? Can’t wait for this shit to air.
P.S can we all just take a moment to remember how fucking amazing Marc-Andre Fleury was in the very first year of the show? Guy was the definition of a beauty
