Wade on Birmingham



A scene from season 1 of the MTV reality show, “Two-a-Days.”

The Hoover High School football team is used to pressure on the field, but how about the pressure on camera? MTV’s reality series, “Two-a-Days,” followed the Buccaneers as they toughed it out through practices, Coach Rush Propst’s tirades and churlish cheerleaders as they pursued a national championship in 2005 and 2006.

Wade on Birmingham provides weekly recaps of the teen drama, which debuted Aug. 23, 2006.
