animatorGo Colts!designer

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.

Colts Haiku: Colts vs. Patriots

New England return
Different year, same result.
Gut-wrenching defeat.

Don't call them rivals.
The Patriots own the Colts.
Face it, Colts are cursed.

Catch, drop, or fumble,
that's the beauty of football.
Make plays and you win.

What fundamentals?
Colt vets look like rookies.
Protect the pigskin!

Come down off the ledge.
Mistakes can be corrected.
Fifteen games to go.

Look out, Lee Majors.
Nineteen million dollar man
wears number eighteen.

Effective pass rush
protects weak secondary.
Freeney needs some help.

Edge barrels through line.
Only safeties can stop him.
Don't forget the ball!
