Bills vs Colts

Today we're heading 90 minutes west on I-70 to Indianapolis to watch the Buffalo Bills take on the Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium. We were at the stadium just three weeks ago to watch my son's marching band compete at the Grand National Championship.  Lucas Oil is only four years old and has a beautiful brick and limestone exterior along with a retractable roof and a gigantic moveable wall of windows. It's quite a stunning structure.  GO BILLS!!!

WIBC-AM was the flagship station of the Indianapolis Colts for many years.  The lead Colts station still remains on 1070 AM although they are now "The Fan" WFNI.  WIBC's News/Talk programming remains on WIBC-FM at 93.1 while WFNI is all Sports and affiliated with ESPN Radio.

"97 Rock" WGRF was the flagship station of the Buffalo Bills from 1999 to 2011.

UPDATE:
The Bills lose to the Colts 20-13 and slide to 4-7 on the year, virtually guaranteeing another losing season.

My Colts-loving wife was very happy.

A subtle reminder of what country the Bills suck in.
