Look, I have no experience on what it’s like to be featured on a reality show. I never will. But I imagine that there are two options you can choose when cameras follow you around: Embrace the situation and be very engaging with the crew OR you can politely decline to be a point of interest.
Apparently, Bengals linebacker James Harrison has chosen Option 3.
Harrison isn’t like most people. Harrison is rebellious and isn’t afraid to show you how he feels. Harrison plays the bad-boy role and he does it quite well. He has an attitude and that’s what makes him so special on the football field.
But some settings might not suit the short-tempered, fiery-eyed linebacker. For instance, let’s examine the photo above. With help from our talented FOXSports.com photo team, we were able to crop a picture of the commissioner’s mug over Harrison giving the Hard Knocks cameras the bird. This is one of the many examples where Harrison pulls this stunt. Harrison has had several dustups with Roger Goodell in the past and it seemed fitting.
Let’s not forget that Harrison isn’t the most conventional guy on the planet. This is the same guy that thumbed his nose to an invitation to the White House after the Steelers won the Super Bowl. Some might perceive that as ignorance and arrogance, but that’s just James Harrison being James Harrison.
