Did you know that Friday Night Lights premiered 10 years ago this week? For some of us it’s been a decade of Clear Eyes and Full Hearts. For others, ahem, those of you who ignored my nagging and only just gave in recently, it’s been a couple of years. For all of us, it’s been …well… it’s been hard, missing them so much. Full Story
