Great Show
27 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

If you get a chance to see this show, please do so. the first show just aired last night and was nothing short of powerful. The show is shot in wide screen format and looks and sounds great. If you are a football this is the show for you. even if your not a fan you will be of this show. Can't wait the next show. this has hit written all over it. Check it out on ESPN Tuesday nights at 8:00pm.
