clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose. yes, i'll quote it now and i'll quote it forever (texas, forever), because everything about my beloved friday night lights television series is in my (clear) eyes, perfect. ok, so maybe "perfect" is too strong of a sentiment, but let's just say it comes pretty darn close to that. much like my ability to ...
