Last Shuffle Up to Buffalo: Colts vs. Bills

Changing 'shoes: The Horseshoe turns three

Football Haiku

Game day hangover.
Tailgating is not for apes.
Damn Touchdown Monkey.

Two arms reach skyward.
Most precious parallel limbs.
Signal sought for six.

Edge on the sideline.
Irreplaceable but not
indestructible.

Unlikely hero.
Rhodes runs wild at Arrowhead.
Twelve point explosion.

Three interceptions.
Peterson, Cota, Bashir.
Get hungry for more!

Memo from Peyton:
When my passes hit your hands,
you better catch them!

Bills dared us to throw
More man to man on Marvin?
Peyton, make them pay!

Johnson staggers off.
"Look at the pretty colors!"
Can you say concussed?

Its not the hot wings.
Flutie Bowl has come and gone.
Losses cause heartburn.

Farewell, worthy Bills.
Next year Colts switch divisions.
No more cold weather!

 

Changing 'shoes

This marks year three for the Horseshoe. The 'shoe has a new look and a new attitude. The changes can be summed up in two words: football haiku. The two were made for each other. Both use speed, grace, and force. Both capture moments from the ridiculous to the sublime. Most importantly, both are just plain fun. So, this year, instead of lengthy analysis, each week you will find 5-10 haiku, each dealing with some aspect of the upcoming game. Silly? Well, yes.  But hopefully the new Horseshoe will give fans a different perspective on each game.

I welcome your submissions. They are loads of fun to write. I am using the 5-7-5 form, meaning the haiku should consist of three lines, the first line being five syllables long, the second being seven syllables, and the third five.  Submit haiku here

In addition to the haiku, every week, I'll pick winners for the full slate of NFL games. I finished last season picking 72% of the winners. Jim Conway, my Dad, is returning this year to try and put me back in my place. See our predictions
