13 (wow) years ago tonight @pberg44 changed my life. I was living out of a suitcase in my girlfriends apartment when I got the call that I’d be moving to Austin. I called the surgery center where I worked as a scrub nurse and told them I’d be leaving for some football show in Texas but I’ll see you guys again as soon as I’m back. There was no way a show about football – that was already a movie – about a player who breaks his neck in the pilot episode is going anywhere but a job is a job amirite! But it wasn’t about football. It was about relationships, family, humanity, love and loss. It was about longing to fit in and wanting to get out. It was about life in a small town and how a community comes together in good times and bad. Little did I know I hit the proverbial jackpot and the show would go on for 5 years. I’m forever grateful. Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can’t lose. Texas Forever. 🤘🏼

Minka continued, “There was no way a show about football – that was already a movie – about a player who breaks his neck in the pilot episode is going anywhere but a job is a job amirite!”

Little did Minka know, that the show would have a much greater impact on its audience. “But it wasn’t about football. It was about relationships, family, humanity, love and loss,” she explained.

“It was about longing to fit in and wanting to get out. It was about life in a small town and how a community comes together in good times and bad,” the “FNL” alum reminisced.
