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: Down 3! Horseshoe 126/208 Jim Conway

This week's game: Colts vs. Browns Sunday
12/15 1:00pm Cleveland, OH
No! Say it ain't so!
Marvin drops a sure touchdown.
Spoiled by excellence.
Home field through playoffs
Division lead on the line.
High stakes game. Colts fold.
Flat like a pancake.
Flat like an airless balloon.
Flat like Sunday's Colts.
Should should learn from Zeus.
Titans were not defeated.
They were overthrown.
The ball, the first down,
the lead, the game, the playoffs
slip through Colts hands.
Three bitter losses.
Titans look gift horse in mouth
New rivalry born.
Fourth quarter cruncher
Peyton limps to locker room,
Sings the bursa sac blues.
Playoff hopes remain
Win out and wildcard awaits.
Lose one, Colts are done.
