Let's Touch God This Time, Boys

I'm about to admit to an oddity about myself.

I dislike watching sports. Pretty much all sports, excluding the Winter Olympics.

I like watching movies and (sometimes) TV shows about sports. Some of the *best* movies have been based on true stories about people in sports. I like the positive impact the game can have on people. It can change lives in fundamental ways. Good ways. People reach in and tap into their full potential, learn the value of teamwork, learn you don't always win, and come to terms with losing. It's all in there.

A great TV show about football was Friday Night Lights. Yes, I know it was a movie, too. But, this is a TV blog.

Here are two short clips from Friday Night Lights. It's my way of celebrating the World Series Super Bowl this Sunday.

TV Show: Friday Night Lights
Status: Cancelled


  1. I didn't watch that one because I hate sports.

  2. This show is about so much more than sports. It's actually really good.

  3. I only watched the 1st season. I need to go back and watch the rest, I hear it's so so good!

  4. Robin, you probably throw a baseball like a girl!

  5. I'm pretty much the same. Not really a sports fan though for a while I did get into watching basketball and soccer. Not anymore though.

    Never watched Friday Night Lights, but there have been many sports movies that I have enjoyed. They're more like getting uplifted and inspired than actually sitting through an entire boring game.

  6. Thank you so much for your Silence of the Lambs story on my blog today, Robin! It was intense but also powerful. I really appreciate you sharing it with me.

    I'm following your blog now, so: nice to meet you!
