Yahoo!, Robert Weiner and 'Friday Night Lights'



I always like to see how others view Tampa Bay high school sports, so I clicked on this high school sports blog on Yahoo! this afternoon.

It's not surprising that Robert Weiner's return to Plant would be on there. He's the head coach at one of the country's top high school programs.

But I didn't expect this: Yahoo! writer Cameron Smith compared Weiner's decision to a storyline from the hit TV show "Friday Night Lights," where the ficitional head coach apparently acted out a similar ordeal. I say apparently because my wife and I just started watching the series on DVD over the holiday break, and we're only midway through Season 1. So, uh, spoiler alert!

Check out the Yahoo! post here.
