“I'm gonna party, see how intoxicated I can get and how many rules I can flaunt. That's my motto.”
H.G. Bissinger, Friday Night Lights: A Town, a Team, and a Dream

“Athletics lasts for such a short period of time. It ends for people. But while it lasts, it creates this make-believe world where normal rules don’t apply. We build this false atmosphere. When it’s over and the harsh reality sets in, that’s the real joke we play on people. . . . Everybody wants to experience that superlative moment, and being an athlete can give you that. It’s Camelot for them. But there’s even life after it.”
H.G. Bissinger, Friday Night Lights: A Town, a Team, and a Dream

“Because Cards' fans are the most knowledgeable and loyal in all of baseball, they booed almost reluctantly, polite as booing goes, what would have passes as a standing ovation in Philly.”
H.G. Bissinger, Three Nights in August: Strategy, Heartbreak, and Joy Inside the Mind of a Manager
