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.

Sportsman of the Week Ending 7/29/2012

Didn't think this week's Sportsman of the Week would be Olympics related, but couldn't resist.  I love the wider world of sports, this gentleman represents the spirit of sports for sure.  Im Dong-hyun (South Korea) is legally blind. And he set the Olympic record on the day of the Opening Ceremonies. He has 20% or less vision in both eyes. "The 26-year-old Im does not wear glasses in competition, saying he relies on distinguishing between the bright colors of the target."  In any event, great sportsman, deserving winner of this week's Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
