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 # 82: Colts vs. Titans

Ponies face rough road
against division rival.
Must win? Too early.

They share the trophy.
Each is irreplaceable.
McNair and Manning.

Eddie George, Colt killer.
Flaming thumbtack no longer.
Indy fans rejoice.

One major concern:
Eliminate turnovers.
Make them earn their points.

The pundits were shocked.
Ned Flanders, not Bob Sanders,
was Colt's top draft pick.

The Colt rule, some say.
No contact beyond five yards.
Yellow flags will fly.

Forty two true kicks.
The law of averages
caught up with Vandy.

Forget the Osmonds,
P's a little bit country.
E is rock and roll.
