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. Dolphins  Nov. 2

 
Crowd miffed at Colt's muff.
Not a furry hand warmer,
just a plain old goof.

The slippery slope.
A simple mistake snowballs.
Defense stems the tide.

Manning at the line,
Maestro at the podium.
Both get players' best.

Limping to huddle,
Meadows refuses to leave.
True grit? No, true blue!

The century men.
Marvin, Edge eat up the yards.
Reggie snags two scores.

A storm is coming.
Miami hit hard. Its name:
The thundering herd.

The NFL says
dreadlocks part of uniform.
Good thing Edge got trimmed.

Oh, Ricky runs so fine
Colts must own the Dolphin's line.
Stop Ricky. Stop Ricky.
