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
forward, that is. The 'Shoe doesn't need pages of stat-crunching
analysis to find the essence of the game.
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: Up by 3! Horseshoe 100/160 Jim Conway

This week's game: Colts vs. Broncos Sunday
11/23 8:30pm Mile High Stadium
Big D on Sunday
Didn't fly in from Dallas.
It's here in In-D.
So big, yet so fast.
Defies the laws of physics,
Our man, Dwight Freeney.
Read your Hemmingway.
Ask not for whom the post tolls,
It tolls for Vandy.
For three full quarters,
Lackluster offense can't score.
Fourth, flood gates open.
Six hundred catches
In one hundred two games.
Marvin sets the pace.
Colts commit to run
Edge starts slow, finishes strong,
Keeps the D honest.
Peyton works magic.
Of the play-action fake.
Next week in Denver,
If Broncos like mile high air
Younger Colts can too.
