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 # 83: Colts vs. Packers

Yellow wedge helmet
Armloadfuls of brats and beer.
Cheddar heads at the dome.

Pluck the long hamstring.
It can play only one note.
Edge knows it well: OUCH!

He plays the same in
sandlot or the Super Bowl.
Favre has fire for game.

Equine antipathy
Damn lactose intolerance
Ponies don't like Cheese.

Telling stat or not?
Favre likes tundra over turf.
Pack loses most in domes.

Offensive ego.
They can only stop themselves.
First to thirty wins.

Colt defensive plan?
Get down and then make big plays.
Easy is boring.

Two big picks for Nick.
One more will make the hat trick.
Beyond good, that's sick!
