Tomorrow night my very favorite show, Friday Night Lights,
returns to NBC.
It has everything and nothing to do with football.
The reviews are stellar going into season 4.
I love this show so much because it reminds me of growing up. We lived in a small Texas town a lot like the one on the show. My dad was the football coach there. When we were tiny, Dad would take us kids to the locker room and toss us in a big shower with multiple heads. Presto! Five kids bathed and ready for bed and a brief break for Mom. Here I am with Dad around 1980 when both of us had darker hair. Long retired from the game, he is still greeted warmly about town as "Coach."
Set your Tivos. You'll be a fan.
Here's the finale from last season to get you caught up.
