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 # 96: Colts vs. Chargers


The record be damned,
A win is more important.
Peyton takes a knee.

Befuddled by blitz,
Peyton avoids big mistake.
Patience rewarded.

Giddy crowd shakes Dome.
Red-zone anticipation.
History at hand.

Peyton probes defense.
Finally finds a weakness
with third quarter score.

First place Raven D
upstaged by relentless force:
Dwight Freeney, the horse!

The wait is over.
Ponies make home with best fan.
The Horseshoe, of course!

Mayor and owner,
forge long-lasting partnership.
City, team will grow.

Wild horses no more,
Generations to come know
only Indy Colts.
