Fourth and Short
Very short. Welcome to the Horseshoe, the home for Colts
haiku. Football is a game of simple grace and power, grit and
glory unleashed in small explosions. It's poetry in motion. Fast

17 weeks. 17 syllables. That's all we need. Beat that,
Each year the 'Shoe also predicts winners for
the full slate of NFL games. Jim Conway put the 'Shoe in its
place last season. This year, he returns to defend his title.
The score: Horseshoe 10/16 Jim Conway 14/16
This week's game: Colts vs. Miami, RCA Dome, Sept. 15, 12:00pm
One yard short of one hundred
Four drops, one fumble.
Jags make more mistakes.
Colts play well enough to win.
No chemistry yet.
Qadry in the clear.
Two missiles for The Missile.
Call me Ismael, chump.
Green, green end zone grass.
Wayward pass nabbed by pony.
Like spawning salmon,
Dolphins come Dome to die.
Slimy sea mammals.
Two dreadlocked runners.
Golden teeth or wedding dress?
No doubt, Colts have Edge.
Oh flying red flag,
Why must you challenge bad calls?
Colts lose every time.
Sloppy season start.
Preseason is for practice.
Keep your helmet on!
