Send Riggins After Him

Yes, Buzz Bissinger has endorsed Romney, but now the creator of the "Friday Night Lights" TV series, Peter Berg, has sent a threatening letter to the Romney folks telling them to stop using the series' famous  catch phrase, "Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose."  Berg calls its use an act of stealing. "Your politics and campaign are clearly not aligned with the themes we portrayed in our series," Berg writes in the letter, obtained by the Hollywood Reporter. "The only relevant comparison that I see between your campaign and Friday Night Lights is in the character of Buddy Garrity -- who turned his back on American car manufacturers selling imported cars from Japan."

Full letter here.   Romney's drab use of it here:
