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 # 89: Colts vs. Vikings

The floodgates open
Scoreboard lit up like Christmas
Colt defense can't swim.

Two punts in two games.
Defense can't get off the field.

Manning's career day.
Five touchdowns count for nothing.
Young defense crumbles.

The Chiefs didn't need
the law of averages.
Priest crunches numbers.

We're young, we're injured.
Time for excuses is up.
Defense must take stand.

Fans, find happy place.
Season's far from over.
No win is easy.

Monday night shootout?
Between Manning, Culpepper
Forty-two touchdowns

Moss gathers bad ham.
Questionable for Monday.
Colts may have a chance!
