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 # 87: Colts vs. Jags

Fourth quarter comebacks
keep Jags in division hunt.
Colts game won't be close.

Three players return
Jefferson, Sanders, and Doss.
Safeties in numbers.

Harrison, Freeney.
Double teams dog both players.
Others will break free..

Giant ball of yarn
is shipped to RCA Dome
Here kitty, kitty.

Larry Triplett says
Fred Taylor runs like he's mad.
Colts will calm him down.

The division chase
The right time and the right place
Soon a one horse race.

Balance in all things.
Run opens pass, pass frees run.
Zen Master Peyton.

Their work unnoticed
They prefer obscurity.
Colts offensive line.
