Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose

I've been having a stressful time at work so am trying not to think about it. Fortunately I've had some distractions. Yesterday was the going away party for a friend and tonight I visited an injured friend.

And now for more TV talk!

Day 14 - Favorite male character

If this was a few years ago my answer, without a doubt, would have been Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Spike (played by James Marsters). He started out as a two-dimension villain and went on this incredible journey and transformation throughout the course of the show - plus he's fun and sexy! But how could I forgot Michael Emerson's brilliantly portrayed Ben, on Lost? Mostly a villain but Ben is always fun to watch and an intriguing character. I think if the wonderful Friday Night Lights hadn't come along it would have been one of those two but now my choice is.....

Coach Erin Taylor

Kyle Chandler's Eric Taylor, or Coach Taylor as he's most often called and how I think of him, is one of those wonderfully understated strong characters. When I have a hard time remembering that he's a fictional character I don't worry about my sanity but rather consider that high praise for the show and Chandler's acting. Coach Taylor is such an amazing guy who works hard, loves the kids he coaches and goes above and beyond for them (he's a coach for them in all parts of their lives), and who always tries to do the right thing.

We also see Coach Taylor not just as a football coach but as a loving (and not always perfect) father and husband. Actually I think the not perfect part is what makes him such a great character. Yes, Coach Taylor is always trying to do the right thing, but sometimes he makes the wrong decision. Because we all make mistakes! The absolutely brilliant Connie Britton shines as Tami Taylor, and I suspect she's one of the reasons I love Coach Taylor so much: Tami loves him and knows he's a good man, so I see it too!

Coach Taylor makes me wish I played football even though I hate to run and have a bad knee just because I'd love for him to coach me. Or maybe just be my dad. I don't know, but I do know that he's a fantastic character, and along with Tami the heart of Friday Night Lights.
