The first of probably many posts about Friday Night Lights.

So, I've started to watch this TV show called Friday Night Lights which is about high school football and it is probably one of the best shows ever.  It's really well written, and it's shot all cool like, and the characters are all great and well developed and I'm totally crushing on one of the football players, whose name is Tim Riggins, and I pretty much melt every time he comes on the screen and he really doesn't even need to speak but it's better when he does because he's so vulnerable and messed up and so wise beyond his 16 or 18 years or however old he's supposed to be, but in real life he's actually not a high school student, he's 28 so that means I'm not a total sicko right? I mean, it still makes me a cougar but not disgusting.  Right?

Right now I'm almost at the end of season one and Tim Riggins is sleeping with his neighbor who is my age or maybe even older and at first I was like, GROSS but then I thought about it for a while and I was like, SCORE! Way to go neighbor lady!  And I really wanted to go and tell her that he's really 28 so it's totally ok, he can totally be a father to your little boy.  You go right on ahead and keep sleeping with him.

It occured to me that I might be slightly obsessed when I went to see The Blind Side, which is a great movie by the way, and at the beginning they were showing football clips and one of the football players had "Riggins" on his jersery and I was like OH MY GOD TIM RIGGINS IS TOTALLY IN THIS MOVIE and then I realized that Tim Riggins is actually a character in a TV show and not a real person who could be in a movie.  And then I said a silent prayer that this was one of the few times that I didn't say something stupid like that out loud.

As a side note, the annoying kid in The Blind Side is actually played by the same actor who plays the kid that Tim Riggins could possibly father in Friday Night Lights only he's much less annoying in Friday Night Lights.  So there you go people.  Full Circle.
