The knowledge that “Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose” is something you can learn—that it doesn’t have to be inborn—is the reason we love this show: that we can, in our daily lives, live with this kind of integrity and openness to whatever the world offers us, and not feel ashamed or naive; that it is better to live with an open heart that allows us to believe in the possibility of an impossibly long pass, and the love of two people that endures no matter what; that the love of a show about football in Texas has nothing to do with football or Texas, and is instead about the potential each of us has to be normal, regular, incredible people—that’s what’s been given to us.

"I love you," I said. Or maybe she said it. After a while you lose track.

Every man at some point in his life is gonna lose a battle. He’s gonna fight and he’s gonna lose. But what makes him a man is that in the midst of that battle, he does not lose himself.
