DT Sione Pouha To Air ‘Life Of A Lock Out’

Sione Pouha was tired of answering the same questions everywhere he went this offseason. He heard them in stores, at his kids’ school, even at the dinner table. ”Everybody was asking two general things: ‘What’s up with the lockout? What are you doing with no football?”’ the big Jets defensive tackle said. ”I was kind of like a broken record. So, I thought to myself, ‘Dude, what am I doing? I can just show them.”’

So, Pouha grabbed a video camera, got a film crew together and started rolling on a behind-the-scenes series that fans can subscribe to for free on his own YouTube channel. The 4-minute preview for the ”Life of a Lock Out” series has gotten more than 1,500 views since it was posted a week ago, and the first full-length episode airs Wednesday. ”I would call it a low-budget reality series,” Pouha said with a big laugh. ”It’s not quite ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians.’ It’s the non-football life of a football player and what they do during the lockout.”

The preview shows clips of Pouha working out and getting a visit from teammate Nick Mangold, hanging out in Times Square in Manhattan and waiting to reward a Jets fan with tickets to the home opener – when and if that happens – and singing in the kitchen with one of his daughters. ”I thought it would be awesome to give people, kind of like a reality show, a chance to see what we do other than on the fields,” he said. ”A lot of people just see us on Sundays and obviously that’s what we get paid to do, but we have adventures and have families and take our kids to school and do homework and that sort of stuff.”
