The Oakland Raiders will be the latest team featured on HBO’s sports documentary series “Hard Knocks.”

Jon Gruden’s squad was announced as the pick for the show Tuesday night, and this is going to be like a drug for football fans. (RELATED: Oakland Raiders Sign Richie Incognito To One-Year Deal)

My friends, I hope you’re ready for a gigantic party starting August 6. It’s going to be pure electricity. I wanted my Lions to get the nod, but Gruden and the Raiders were my clear second choice.

Gruden by himself is one of the most entertaining guys in the world. Whenever he opens his mouth, I hang onto every single word.

It’s nonstop entertainment, and now we’re going to get to see it throughout all of training camp. This like like paradise for fans of the game.

They also have Antonio Brown in town now, which means we’re definitely in for some diva antics. We can only hope Gruden gets caught on film just unloading on him for something.

The legendary coach together with Antonio Brown and it all being broadcast around the world on HBO is going to be ratings gold. I’m literally smiling ear-to-ear as I type every single word of this.
