    Default "Friday Night Lights" **NO spoilers**

    Book sucks, Movie is awesome.

    Bought the dvd and it came with a free copy of the book. Don't even bother reading the book, just watch the movie then watch the bonus features for the back story.

    The book...

    First book that I started and couldn't finish.

    The movie...

    This is without a doubt, the BEST football movie I have ever seen. The last game in the movie had me on the edge of my seat...CHEERING... like it was a real game.


    MOJO BABY!!!

    We have a VH Links member who posts on here pretty regularly who could give us a lot of insight into this movie/story and answer a lot of questions. He went to Odessa Permium and the movie was based on his football team during his senior (I believe?) year of high school. Where are you Filthy150???

    GREAT movie! Saw it when it was in theaters with my football team. That day we played the weakest team in our league and were running all over them. So everyone was tellin our coach "Give me the ball! Let Boobie spin!!" lol And can't remember the guys name, Chavez? i think #4 the LB/SS forgot what he was, that guy is just awesome! In the movie anyways.....

    Odessa Permian had a great 10-15 year run. Very few guys went on to Div. 1 colleges, not alot of size but they had some bad-ass teams. The movie caught alot of that. I played with a guy in college, a QB who had played at Permian, this was 3, 4 years before the book came out. Anyway, great movie. (In real life, the game with Carter was played in Austin, not the Astrodome and it was in the semifinals, not the championship game)

    I haven't been around the computer lately. I saw this thread start Friday, but didn't have a chance to post. I'm one of the few in that particular class that has not read the book. Haven't seen the movie yet either. I was going to see it the premier weekend in Odessa, but didn't make it. I am looking forward to seeing it.
    The reason I haven't seen it yet is THE DAY after it came out, I had several friends that had seen it call me and tell me about it. Basically they informed me of the fictional parts(which there seem to be plenty). After hearing this my desire to see it lessened.
    If anyone has a question, fire away, I'll answer to the best of my ability.

The team came back to win, and it stuck.' It is chanted at every game at some point.
    Now , that is how it was presented to me at my 1st Permian game(I was 13), by a woman that was about 70 years old that was at every game.
    15 years out of highschool it seems kind of silly, but it is un-questionable while going through it.
