Fourth and Short

Very short. Welcome to 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.

Each year the 'Shoe also predicts winners for the full slate of NFL games. Jim Conway put the 'Shoe in its place last season. This year, he returns to defend his title. 

The score:  Horseshoe 32/46  Jim Conway 33/46    See this week's predictions

This week's game: Bye week. Rest up, Colts!

Colts Haiku

Colts win by twenty
Thank god for expansion teams!
A win is a win.

Edgerrin's new knee
is better than his old knee.
The Bionic Back.

Reggie Wayne's first score:
Interception turned touchdown.
The first of many.

Week three, Colts sputter.
Use bye to work out the kinks.
Best is yet to come.

New scheme on defense
Cover 2, not cover who?
Learn to stop the run.

Middle linebacker.
The key to Dungy's new D.
Sam Sword bides his time.

8 for 88
100 yards for Harrison.
Does he use velcro?




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
