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 # 84: Colts vs. Jaguars

High noon on gridiron
Gunslingers stand face to face.
Manning rides away.

Offensive onslaught.
Thirty five point first quarter.
Game lives up to hype.

Waving and pointing,
He paces line like tiger.
Peyton plays with prey.

You cover Marvin,
then Reggie will be open.
Cover him, there's Stoke.

Depleted defense
can't keep pace with pass attack.
Receivers run free.

Jags top division
Three last second victories.
Quality or luck?

Colts make luncheon date.
Freeney and Scioli have
a Leftwich sandwich.

The shoestring tackle
should not be the best weapon
on Colt kickoff team.
