It took a crane and plenty of elbow grease to install Oak Park and River Forest High School's new press box at the Lake Street and East Avenue football stadium on July 9.

Costing nearly $200,000, the new addition replaces the school's 50-year-old press box, which was demolished last month. Coaches for OPRF and visiting teams, as well as reporters, team videographers and guests use the press box.

Okay, they needed a new press box, but $200,000 grand. Is this thing made out of titanium and gold? I guess when your sitting on close to $100 million you don't really shop around on price.
