Kickoff 'Hard Knocks' In Style with Former Jets

"Hard Knocks" fever is spreading through Cortland like wildfire.

Both Jets fans and HBO's camera crews alike have taken over the town and practice facility. Various players/personnel such as S Emanuel Cook, QB Mark Sanchez and HC Rex Ryan have been interviewed thus far, and we can certainly expect more to come as camp rolls on.

The sixth installment of HBO's football reality series is slated to kick off on Aug. 11, so HBO and former Jets have decided to celebrate the 24 hours counting down to the show's season premiere in style ---- in Times Square.

Fans of all ages are welcome to attend: events will range from live video conferencing with Rex and the gang via satellite, amazing contests and giveaways for children aged 8-16, and the Jets' Flight Crew looking stunning and dancing the day away per usual.

And who can pass up the opportunity to see or possibly converse with a former Jet?

For all of the details surrounding when it all goes down, please view HBO's official press release. (posted below)

Also, to help get ready for the show and the 2010-11 season, check out HBO's Hard Knocks web site, where they have posted various videos and other tidbits about the players and reality show which airs next week. (Click here to check them out.)
