Friday Night Lights at the ATX Television Festival in Austin on Friday to celebrate the 10 year anniversary. Connie Britton was joined by Scott Porter, Stacey Oristano, Adriannne Palicki, Matt Lauria, Brad Leland, Jesse Plemons…and Smash, Gaius Charles. There was a tailgate party, there was a group photo…


Volume up y'all! You know the drill! #FNLTailgate #TelevisionForever #TexasForever #ATXTVs5

And a performance by Crucifictorius. By the way, Kirsten Dunst was there too, in the crowd, and it was a big crowd, and people were all excited about it on social media and I’m the bitter bitch who’s like, yeah? How come you didn’t love them like this when they were actually on the air, struggling to get renewed season after season, ignoring us when we begged you to watch! That’s not helpful, and I know it.

Anyway, over in Illinois, another FNL reunion was happening at the Spartan Super Race for Marriott Rewards where Minka Kelly, Taylor Kitsch, Aimee Teegarden, and Zach Gilford competed together as a team. Riggs and Lyla back together! Matt and Julie back together! They said they don’t see each other very often, that they do try to touch base now and again, but none of them seem all that interested in revising those characters, preferring to leave them the way they left them. Fine, but maybe without Taylor’s moustache?
