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 # 94: Colts vs. Texans


Colts score more in one
quarter than most teams do in
the entire game.

Three straight onside kicks,
then a fake punt for Titans.
Desperate measures.

After ten days off,
ponies sluggish out of gate.
but finish race strong.

A collective gasp.
No slam dunk celebration.
Pollard drops sure score.

So often the goat,
Rob Morris breaks game open
with block-kick touchdown.

High-arced ball descends,
Harrison's hands cradle it.
His feet drag the 'zone.

Forty-two to Marv.
Forty three to Brandon, and
Forty-four to Reg.

First start at center,
DeMulling does yeoman's work.
Only one fumble.
