The Conductor does not want to play the ponies today. He wants to suck his thumb and scream at the replay of the Tennessee “foul” at the end of the game. But, he is the Conductor. This is the cross he bears. He must get back on the horse not only for himself, but for his loyal passengers. This is the life he chose.
A graze of the leg? Gross. It also took him 7 seconds to inbound the ball………Let’s Ride.
