Ted Lasso, a model for the nurturing modern man

I loved Ted Lasso, the actual sport aspect of it all was the least interesting bit. This update from Jason Kottke hits the nail on the head:

another aspect I appreciate about the show is it demonstrates how you can be competitive without being toxic. Lasso is a very competitive guy who cares about winning, but he goes about it in a constructive way, not a destructive way. It's the kind of energy their mom and I are always trying to impart to our kids, who are both competitive (albeit in pretty different ways).

The show was renewed for two more seasons, which is great news and it's been getting praise from two of the podcasts I've been listening to: Fake Doctors, Real Friends and John Gruber's The Talk Show.
