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 # 92: Colts vs. Lions

 
Edge turns the corner,
and spins like whirling dervish.
Sweetness would be proud.

Two rookies on line
Edge rambles for two hundred.
Coach Mudd's miracle.

Rough Bears talk tough,
but Peyton baits them four times.
First win for Indy.

In the fourth quarter,
Marino sighs in relief.
Manning out of pads.

In the check-out lane,
ask for the double baggers.
Freeney and Mathis.

A nose for the ball,
rookie draft pick proves his worth.
Knee sidelines Sanders.

Colts plan football feast.
Does gravy go with pigskin?
Lions will be stuffed.

Throwback uniforms?
Classic Colt remains unchanged.
White, blue and the 'shoe.
