  1. “Sheanon Williams heads up field as Davis shows his best ninja move.”
    I laughed…

  2. Great shots as always. Interesting to look at the Houston players in the background when Casey is celebrating Keon’s disallowed free kick. None of them are protesting to the referee or linesman which is rather telling.
