Friday Night Lights wins ESPY

From Sleepless in Midland we learn that Friday Night Lights won the ESPY for the best sports movie of the year!  I wrote my (inane) review in October, and am glad it won.

FNL beat out some serious competition: Cinderella Man, Coach Carter and Million Dollar Baby, all with bigger budgets and bigger stars (and Million Dollar Baby raked in the Oscars this year).

So, congrats to Friday Night Lights for getting some well deserved recognition, and thanks for not making us look worse than we are.
