Last week on HBO’s ‘Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’, Jameis Winston briefed rookie Sefo Liufau about a harsh reality that comes with playing in the NFL.
“You can be cut anytime brother,” Winston explained to the former Buffs quarterback.
The tables were turned in this week’s show, with the rookie imparting some knowledge to the veteran about rescuing goats. Yes, you heard me correctly. Goats.
About 18 minutes into episode three, Liufau is talking to Winston about his girlfriend, her family, and the four goats they rescued. Unable to contain himself without laughing, Winston is in awe, refusing to believe there is such a thing as goat rescuing.

“Are you serious? You can rescue goats?” Winston inquires.
“Yeah, what did you think I meant?” Liufau responds.
“It’s not like dog rescue,” Winston says. “Because I was about to say, they’re [Liufau’s girlfriend’s parents] really rich if they rescuing goats like dogs.”

"If you got goats, you got money."--Jameis Winston, August 22, 2017.
Here are my takeaways:
1. One of the better moments from HBO’s Hard Knocks series in recent memory. Love getting this sort of access. Jameis Winston is hysterical and needs his own show someday.
2. I had no idea there was such a thing as goat rescue either, but a quick google search yields quite a few volunteer organizations aimed at saving these four-legged creatures.
3. In addition to Liufau making the Buccaneers 53-man roster, I’m seriously hoping Jameis Winston rescues a goat.
Expect Liufau to get some serious air time in next week’s episode which will feature the ever popular rookie talent show. HBO’s ‘Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ continues Tuesday, August 29 at 10pm ET. In case you missed the first three episodes, you can catch them in their entirety this Saturday, August 26 beginning at 2:30pm ET.
