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 # 88: Colts vs. Chiefs

Before the bye week,
Colts offense well oiled machine
Now it needs tune up.

Woeful kick returns.
Young mistakes by old players.
Serious brain cramp.

Reggie shoves Peyton
Pigskin pundits play it up.
Passion or pouting?

Costly turnovers
tip the balance in close games
Protect ball, Colts win.

The play of the game
Marvin's score is called back on
late replay challenge.

Fear of Arrowhead?
Hardly. Colts have won five straight
including playoffs.

Unfocused ponies
must regroup in a hurry.
Chiefs are due for win.

Defining moment?
Chiefs fight to salvage season.
Colts must remain calm.
