CG News: Ted Lasso Joins the Councils

June 7, 2023

Hey everyone,

You read that right.

Ted Lasso, and his colleague, Leslie Higgins, have joined the Councils.

In the final episode of one of my favorite television series — and don’t worry no spoilers — Higgins says the following to a stubborn and hot-headed character:

All we can do is keep asking for help and accepting it when you can. And if you keep on doing that, you’ll always be moving towards better. 

I couldn’t have said that better myself.

Welcome to the asking-for-help movement, Leslie, Ted and maybe even Roy Kent.



P.S. If you haven’t seen this funny dramedy that manages to make fun of no one, and, in fact, demonstrates the power of kindness and the importance of asking for help, then you are in for a treat. All three seasons are now available on Apple TV.

P.P.S. Fun fact – hours after this final Ted Lasso episode premiered, multiple CG members excitedly reached out to me about this asking-for-help quote.
