T-minus 22 days until Season 4 of Friday Night Lights begins! Craig and I spent a good part of last weekend watching Season 3 to get us ready for the Texas-sized drama that returns in May and I am over the moon with excitement. Frankly, I never thought I would like a show about football, but one day I was sitting pathetically alone on a Friday night and started watching Season 1. Seven episodes and six hours later, I was ready to pack my bags, head to Dillon, Texas and sign up to be a Panther rally girl.
The show has amazing writers, fantastic producers, a wonderful cast, good old fashioned morals, the debauchery that comes before the morals, and some really hunky football players. In a funny way, I think Friday Night Lights even made me more interested in Craig when I met him. Before I began watching, I didn’t care at all if someone played football or not. But then I became obsessed and was kind of impressed when I met Craig and he told me he had played at the University of Nebraska. It was like the show come to life!
I made him start watching too, which was a touch annoying at first because he critiqued everyone’s technique and declared the QB a pansy, but after I threatened his life, he closed his trap and became obsessed with the show too. We’re waiting with baited breath until May. Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose…go Panthers!
