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 # 93: Colts vs. Titans

In the last two games,
Peyton Manning throws ten scores
in first three quarters!

Forty one touchdowns
Seven from Dan Marino
Five games left to play.

Four, five, six touchdowns?
Bar set impossibly high
Peyton tops himself.

He cares not for the
individual records.
Victory's best shared.

More touchdown passes
than incompletions last game.
Super-human feat.

Lost in all the hype,
Colt defense is improving.

Their season now done,
Titans look to play spoiler.
Colts must keep them down.

Beaten and battered,
McNair talks of retirement.
Colts book him tee time.
