The Houston Texans, HBO Sports and NFL Films are teaming up for an all-access look at what it takes to make it in the National Football League when HARD KNOCKS: TRAINING CAMP WITH THE HOUSTON TEXANS debuts in August. The first sports-based reality series – and one of the fastest-turnaround programs on TV – kicks off its five-episode tenth season this summer. Texans Owner Bob McNair and General Manger Rick Smith talk about the team's decision to bare it all and share the behind the scenes stories from camp with the entire nation. NFL Films Supervising Producer Ken Rodgers and Director Matt Dissinger discuss how the show is produced, why they selected the Texans and their goal for the show. Later in the show we talk with some of the players about the first day of OTA's and their thoughts about being on HARD KNOCKS. Louis Nix is back on the field for the first time, Brian Hoyer is making his Texans' OTA debut and Duane Brown is gearing up for a season with more changes on the offensive line. The NBA Finals are set after the Houston Rockets fell to the Golden State Warriors in game five of the Western Conference Finals 104-90. Steph Curry and the Warriors will take on LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. We'll talk about last night's Rockets loss; what this team needs to do to take the next step more. There are a lot of headlines topping the sports world this week including the drama surrounding FIFA. It's all up for discussion on this week's show.
I’m here every Thursday at 11am CST to talk about the hot sports topics of the week and to bring you interviews and guests that go beyond the headlines and typical highlights and scores. Of course this is a sports show so we’ll talk about what’s happening on the field and court…but here you’ll get a different perspective and unique voice on everything that is sports.
Tune in for a preview of the Houston Texans training camp. It’s that time of year and the Texans will soon be a household name. At least on HBO Sports as they are the “Hard Knocks” team for 2015. Our NFL team is gearing up for the season and so are we!
We’re keeping our eyes on the Houston Astros. Will they make a deal before the MLB trade deadline? How good can this team be? Are they really ready for the post season? We’ll talk about it and have a special baseball guest to help us navigate the conversation.
All of this and more on Chalk Talk… sports talk for women and anyone who wants to be informed and entertained!

The whole nation saw Wilmer Flores cry, thinking that he had been traded to the Milwaukee Brewers, along with teammate Zack Wheeler. The Brewers and New York Mets had reached an agreement to trade Carlos Gomez for Flores and Wheeler. However, after the Mets reviewed Gomez's medical record, they nixed the deal. Citing medical reasons, Gomez was still a Brewer.
Until Thursday night, when it was announced that the Brewers traded Gomez and pitcher Mike Fiers to the Houston Astros. The Brewers will receive four prospects: outfielders Brett Phillips and Domingo Santana, left-hander Josh Hader and right-hander Adrian House. The most promising prospect is Phillips.
