Who am I?
I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.
A lot of great sports stories this week, but I can't ignore the individual feat by Johan Santana. Particularly given the backdrop of his recent shoulder surgery, hard work back, the team expecting very little from him (or at least, anything like his old self is "gravy"). And he shuts down the Cards for zero hits (at least according to the umps) and pitches the first no hitter in New York Mets history. Quite the accomplishment, he's a worthy Longhorndave on Sports, Sportsman of the Week!
