The second inductee into the DP Page of Fame, Friday Night Lights - book, movie, and film - was a sure lock if you have been following this little blog for a while. DP devotees are well aware of this fact - I'm pretty obsessed with the series. And just so you know, I'm alright with that semi-embarrassing fact.
All you have to do is look no further than some of the designs of this blogs previous banners, and the FNL quotes and comparisons used throughout many of the posts on this blog.
Being able to to know the true story behind the original H.G. Bissinger novel, quote the entire film made to bring the novel to big picture, and to find myself connected to the Taylor's of the TV series produced by Peter Berg, I accept it all as a loyal fandom, and yes, just a hint of crazy.
Each of the three entities provide so much that represents American culture from small towns, the love for football, racism, sexism, relationships, and of course, the obsession with winning. FNL is a wonderful example of Americana.
Not to mention the many, many quotes that are just awesome.
"Be Perfect" and of course, "Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose"
Needless to say, how can Friday Night Lights NOT be a DP Page of Famer?
