Closed-circuit to those of you who’ve given up on Grantland: (1) Smart move, it’s been a pretty huge disappointment. It is shooting daily holes in my theory that it doesn’t matter what you write about so long as you do it well. Some of the best writers in the world haven’t been able to overcome the indescribably boring topics thus far. Hoping for a turnaround soon.
And (2) you did,however, miss one hell of an article: An Oral History of “Friday Night Lights.” I’m gonna stop there before I start gushing about how much I loved that show because once that happens I oh too late here come the waterworks again.
