Five Step Drop...

Then seven, then five more. 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, ESPN.

Colts Haiku: Colts vs. Jaguars, Sept. 21

Mad Max a Colt fan?
Home turf wasteland for Titans.
The real Thunder Dome!

Sixty full minutes
Offense, defense, special teams.
Total team effort.

No more. Not this time!
Colt fans take a stand with team.
Titans leave losers.

Goodbye, nemesis.
Ponies pistol-whip Titans.
Hello, rivalry!

At full extension,
body floats over white line
except for two toes.

Pulling guard lumbers.
Edge is patient; waits for block,
runs to the daylight.

The huddle bounces
Linebackers groove to the beat.
Defense in rhythm.

Peterson returns.
He won't need his pads; just the
chip on his shoulder.
