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.
Since I was in Europe this (now last) week, it's appropriate to tab the "Man of the Match" (x2) for this week's Sportsman honor. Going into Monday, Italy needed some help to advance from pool play into the knockout round, and Gianluigi Buffon calmly delivered a shutout, preserving a goal differential needed to move on. Then he methodically held the "Three Lions" of England scoreless for another 120 minutes and turned back the key PK that delivered Italy to the semifinals. The first Euro 2012 star to distinguish himself as Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week is Gianluigi Buffon!
