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 # 98: Colts vs. Broncos PLAYOFF EDITION!


Starters, benchwarmers?
Risk of injury too great.
Colts forfeit last game.

New year, same two teams.
Broncs return to scene of crime.
Not crime, massacre!

Anticipation.
Ponies chomping at bit.
Season now one game.

High expectations
Peyton sets the bar higher.
Super Bowl, the goal.

Jake the Snake bootlegs,
Robert Mathis says hello,
plants him in the turf.

Key to victory:
Contain Denver running game,
Keep Jake in pocket.

Turn off the big fans.
Sixty thousand screaming fans
will keep the Dome up!

Rematch or replay?
Horse battle yields same end.
Colts book Boston flight.
