Critical Midseason Match: Colts vs. Miami

Changing 'shoes: The Horseshoe turns three

Football Haiku

Dolphins meet the Colts
Aquatic mammals can't breathe
while horses play ball.

Mighty Colts offense.
Fumbling Fielder feels faint.
Formidable foes.

White River city,
your waters aren't Dolphin safe.
Ponies like sushi.

All Rhodes lead to Dome.
His weary knee now rested,
Edge is sharp again.

First half, third and short.
Beautiful naked bootleg,
one slow motion score!

Stand tall, Mr. Rhodes.
You made the most of your chance.
Our new weapon: depth!

Get to the bait shop.
Sunday, Colts D goes fishing
for more turnovers.

Lamar Smith nightmare.
He ran over us last year.
Stop him, and we win.

Colts have Tradition.
Scramble for playoffs with Jay 
Fiedler on the roof!

'Fins are floundering
How can they beat our horses?
Their kicker's a Mare!

Nah nah naah nah, HEY!
Nah nah-nah! Touchdown music!
Nah nah naah nah, HEY!


Changing 'shoes

This marks year three for the Horseshoe. The 'shoe has a new look and a new attitude. The changes can be summed up in two words: football haiku. The two were made for each other. Both use speed, grace, and force. Both capture moments from the ridiculous to the sublime. Most importantly, both are just plain fun. So, this year, instead of lengthy analysis, each week you will find 5-10 haiku, each dealing with some aspect of the upcoming game. Silly? Well, yes.  But hopefully the new Horseshoe will give fans a different perspective on each game.

I welcome your submissions. They are loads of fun to write. I am using the 5-7-5 form, meaning the haiku should consist of three lines, the first line being five syllables long, the second being seven syllables, and the third five.  Submit haiku here

In addition to the haiku, every week, I'll pick winners for the full slate of NFL games. I finished last season picking 72% of the winners. Jim Conway, my Dad, is returning this year to try and put me back in my place. See our predictions
