All Eyes On Lubbock Western All-Stars

On the South Plains, fans are still celebrating the Western All-Star's win.  Thursday afternoon, several businesses took a break to watch the game.  NewsChannel 11 stopped in on a few of those watch-parties.

One party had a lot of 'energy' surging through it. The crew at South Plains Electric Co-op watched the game on their big screen. Other workers stayed out front though, making sure to take care of their customers who came in asking 'what's the score?'

Folks at the co-op also felt a special connection with the team.

"Two of the kids on the team, their dads are actually here at the office with us, so we know them, so that's the most exciting part for us," Jantzen Louder from SPEC said. 

"They're 12-years-old, they're just so well respected, they have a gift and they're from Lubbock, Texas," Anjie Castilleja from ABC Bank said. 

The folks at ABC Bank were very excited as well. They also held a watch-party Thursday afternoon, but some of the tellers had to stay at their windows, though they said the hooting and hollering kept them up-to-date.

Other workers took a late lunch to catch the game at their favorite restaurants, and you can imagine all those folks will be glued to their TV's at home this weekend.
