Topic: Friday Night Lights
Just started this.
About a small town in West Texas that obsesses over it's College Football team. H.G Bissinger lives in the town for a year and tells the tale of how the town lives it's lives through the team. Friday night games regularly attract 20K!
It covers the 1988 season after the season before they narrowly miss going 'all state'.
I've read the prologue (breathless) and the history of the town - good stuff thus far.
Its begat a TV show and a film also.
