Sure, we'd rather score touchdowns, but even kickers deserve some
love when the game is on the line and you're down by 2. And though we
don't write our haikus barefoot or injure ourselves in a post-kick
celebration, The Horseshoe is just as quirky as Garo Ypremian or any Grammatica. Read on and you'll see!
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.
I welcome your
submissions. Haikus are a lot of fun to write. I am using
the 5-7-5 form, meaning the haiku should consist of three lines, the
first line being five syllables long, the second being seven
syllables, and the third five. My best advice is not to over-think it.
My best efforts often come when I just put pen to paper and write!
