The score: Horseshoe 19/32 Jim Conway 23/32
This week's game: Colts vs. Texans, Reliant Stadium, Sept.
Crew-cutted Colt quarterback

Colts glory past and future.

Nineteen seconds left,
Colts driving to tie the game
No love from 19.
First and goal: four runs.

High bouncing deflected ball.
Stone handed tight end.
Sunday in Houston
Field filled with ponies and cows.
Mmm. First place at steak.
