Friday Night Lights

I loved this movie! If you haven't seen it yet, go see it! I don't want to ruin it and give away the whole movie. But the characters were great, and the way it depicted small town Texas football was very realistic. Any of you reading this who happen to not live in Texas, yes the movie is based on a real team and of course, a real book.
Funny how we left the movie, and all over the parking lots were trucks with "Go Panthers!" or whatever team name for the various high school football teams in the area. Wait, didn't we just leave that movie, oh but this is Texas.
I liked all of the characters, but I really liked the coach. He was smart enough to know that winning isn't everything and contrary to the town's beliefs, it is just a game after all. It's important to have a character be in touch with reality because otherwise the movie would have just made me mad and yelling at the screen: "it's just a game! get a life!" But that wasn't the case. Great movie, go see it!
