    of heights. (Those rickety old high-school pressboxes are treacherous even without stogie-puffing boosters!)

    On "rolling your own" - I was never that successful with much over 45 - it often jammed, so I stopped rolling so much...

    Aah...small-town high school football, with only enough guys to play six-man teams. (We were big time - we dressed out about thirty players. Some of them we even used exclusively on offense... And we had a guy who could actually kick a field goal. Amazing...)

      did -- he had this neat thing that looked like the 35mm version of the old 10mm "cassettes" that he rolled with. Nifty bit of tech, never seen its like before / since.

      I shot basketball at 1500 on Tri-X ... football I usually didn't have to "push". Stuff from the "combat camera operator" shoots -- where we went to, you know, the end-of-school party or the PTA fair or, in my case, the rodeo -- I didn't push at all. Just shot film and took down names...
