Friday Night Lights
If Texas high school football is the state religion, then "church services" take place on Friday nights. While visiting friends in the town of Pilot Point for a wedding, I drove five miles down the road to the town of Aubrey with sign in hand to cheer on the Pilot Point Bearcats against their crosstown rivals, not knowing Aubrey's coach was G.A. Moore, the winningest coach in Texas high school football history (he used to coach Pilot Point as well). Pilot Point has always had the reputation for dominating Aubrey over the years but on this October night, it was a lopsided victory with Aubrey making easy work over Pilot Point 35-7. Pilot Point, where was the defense at? But hey Texans, y'all are passionate about your football - love it!
