On Sunday, season two of Eric and Jessie: Game On premiered on E!, and although we know how the story of Eric Decker's free agency ends (the onetime Broncos receiver signed with the New York Jets) , the show picks up while he is still here in Denver, with a wife who is well into her third trimester and his team on the verge of the Super Bowl (too bad we all know how that ends, as well). In the meantime, though, we are given some insight into Eric's relationship with fellow receiver Demaryius Thomas -- thanks to video on view below of them shirtless and sharing a very cold tub.
To give some context, this scene airs after the Broncos won the AFC championship game and are preparing to head to New York/New Jersey, where the Super Bowl took place.
Beforehand, Eric and Demaryius are basically shown getting a couples massage. (Okay, it's not necessarily a strange thing for two dudes to get physical therapy together -- but one can dream, right?). Afterward, they get in the tub, which seems to be freezing, and basically, they can't keep their hands off each other.
Toward the end of the scene, they settle down a bit and start talking about heading to the Super Bowl. I am not usually one for foreshadowing, but something about the conversation screams, "Your dreams are about to be put on ice -- big time!"
Will you miss Eric and Demaryius Thomas's bromance on and off the field? Watch the clip below and let us know what you think.
