Six points, six years...

Welcome to year six of 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.

Issue # 91: Colts vs. Bears

 
Thirty one touchdowns.
Peyton on pace for fifty.
Past Marino's mark.

Thirty points per game
They make it look so easy.
Game of pitch and catch.

Yak: fuzzy bovine
or colt prancing to paydirt?
YAC: yards after catch.

Backward bouncing punt
almost returned for a score.
Moorehead sacked by back.

Whiny cows complain
Colts show no class, run up score
Don't like it? Stop them.

Vanderjagt mouths off,
then misses his only kick.
Kickoff distraction.

Since the Indy move,
Colts have never beat the Bears.
A Chicago curse?

Natural rivals
an I-65 series
once every four years.
