If you're a fan of high school football, set your DVR to recordthis PBS Frontline "Football High"
episode tomorrow at 9 p.m.
According to the Frontline description here, the episode chronicles the way high school football players are getting bigger and faster and how that translates into an atmosphere that, in many ways, mimics that of the NFL. From the trailers on the site, it looks like it goes into everything from psychological pressure to physical injury.
If you can't DVR it or miss it, it looks like it'll be available for streaming online after it airs like the rest of the Frontline episodes. And if you don't know what channel PBS is on your local cable system, check out this handy PBS station locator tool.
If you're a fan of Frontline, you know this is probably pretty good. I usually love Frontline, and my favorite movie, "Country Boys," is a Frontline documentary you can stream live online right here. I'll try to watch this episode Tuesday night or Wednesday and post a few thoughts on it. If you see it, too, and want to chat about it, look for that post.
And again, if you haven't seen "Country Boys," watch it here when you get a chance. I've made just about all of my friends watch it since I first saw it in 2006 and I've yet to get a bad review back.
