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. Broncos  Jan. 4

Three quarters click by.
No Colt roll-over this year!
Late charge seals the game.

Indy bound Broncos
think they'll run over the Colts.
Chance for redemption.

Forty-one reasons
to expect nothing less than
perfection from Mike.

Somehow or some way,
Exorcism or voodoo,
Playoff jinx will break.

He cares not for such
Individual honors.
Peyton wants a ring.

No more excuses.
Nor more moral victories.
The next step in now.

By hammer and steel,
Talismans of good fortune
Blue shoes' day has come.

The line of scrimmage:
The team that dominates it,
most often will win.
