My favorite new TV show this year is Friday Night Lights. It's about a brand new high school football coach who got the job at a program which was a shoe in for the Texas State championship and what happens when the quarterback who was going to take them to it is seriously and permanently injured, leaving the team in chaos. The show's on NBC, Tuesday night at 8 pm or you can see the latest episode at NBC.com. It's a shame that NBC isn't offering all the episodes because you really need to watch it from the beginning.
Anyway, you ask, what's that got to do with criminal law? I'm glad you asked.
The coach in Friday Night Lights is under crushing pressure but nobody has drawn a gun on him like one parent did to this coach. I guess they take their football a little more serious in Pennsylvania than they do in Texas.
