Pampa pressbox gets high rating

I hadn't covered a high school football game at Pampa in probably close to 20 years until Friday when I was there for the Harvesters vs. Plainview on Homecoming. I was surprised to see that the pressbox served pizza, subway sandwiches and fried chicken. Normally there might be one of those items at an area pressbox, but seldom all three. And, there was even a live telephone line with which to transmit my story of the game back to the newspaper. All in all it was a nice trip. About the only bad thing was I had eaten at Dyer's Bar-B-Q restaurant prior to the game, so I didn't eat anything in the pressbox.
