animatorGo Colts!designer

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. Texans  Dec. 28

Crowd roars, Colts respond.
Denver regroups, scores quickly,
and never looks back.

Home game and bye week.
Brass ring there for the taking.
Colts watch it pass by.

Like two heavyweights,
Ponies land the first good punch.
Broncos do not blink.

Twenty five percent.
Colt offense plays one quarter
Defense plays for three.

History lesson:
No-name backups salivate
to play Colt defense.

Do not doubt their heart.
Effort is no solace with
no execution.

Sky is not falling
Eleven wins, four losses.
Only one klunker.

No horsing around.
Thunder into the playoffs.
Set date with Denver.
