It's Rough Out There

If you think the life of a sportswriter is all fun and games think again. Case in point last week's road trip to Perryton for the Bushland game. I had a flat tire getting into Borger that delayed what is normally a two-hour trip into nearly a three and a half hour one. Then to top things off after the game was over and I had finished doing interviews I went back to the press box to write my story. To my surprised the press box was dark and locked and my computer and notes of the game were locked in as well.

But thanks to Perryton coach Neal Hugg and a maintenance person they were able to get the press box unlocked and I was able to retrieve my stuff with which I finally was able to write the story. Needless to say the trip home didn't take nearly as long.
