Say it with me: “Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.” Even with the fifth and final season of Friday Night Lights out on DVD today, loyal fans of the show will never forget that mantra. Whether the show was on NBC or later DirecTV, Friday Night Lights took hold of viewers right from the start with the denizens of Dillon, Texas, and their lives that (usually) revolved around high school football. Without FNL, we probably would have never seen the dynamic duo of Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton, as Coach Eric and Tami Taylor. (Seriously, I wanted to go strap on some pads and a helmet after hearing one of coach’s earnest and no-nonsense pregame pep talks.) Pop culture would have missed out on bad-boy fullback Tim Riggins (played by Taylor Kitsch). And what better way to connect men and women than to combine drama and football? It’s genius, I tell you. If you missed the final season and have been dying to know what happens with Coach Taylor and the East Dillon Lions, we’re giving away copies of the DVD to 10 random winners — you can enter the sweepstakes below, and check out the official rules before entering. And if you have a favorite FNL memory, drop it in the comments section below and sound off with your fellow fans.
