There Was A “Friday Night Lights” Mini-Reunion And You Weren’t Invited

But don’t feel bad. Neither was Tim Riggins, Coach Taylor, Mrs. Taylor and a whole mess of others. But, oh, does it make my heart sing to see Luke Cafferty, Smash Williams, Matt Saracen, and Jason Street again, even if the latter is wearing a terrrrrible pair of Crocs. [Instagram]…

Connie Britton Pens Op-Ed On Romney’s Use Of “Clear Eyes, Full Hearts”

“Dillon is a classic American town filled with hard-working, middle-class Americans, who just want to lead productive, healthy lives.

Girl Talk: When I Grow Up, I Want To Be Tami Taylor

There’s a lot to love about “Friday Night Lights,” a TV show about so much more than just high school football. My interest in the show was initially sparked by the sight of Taylor Kitsch, sweaty and shirtless, but it struck an unexpected chord with me. I came for the hot guy— I stayed for…

It’s Tami Taylor, Y’all

I’ve been in denial about the end of “Friday Night Lights.” With Connie Britton’s Emmy nom and this video compilation all of Tami Taylor’s y’alls, I suppose I can begin the grieving process.
