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 8/5/2012

A very busy week in the Olympics with a year's worth of potential sportspersons of the week, but a final tip of the hat to who is probably the best Olympian ever.  There, I said it.  22 Olympic medals, 18 gold.  Eighteen!  He only competed in two events in which he didn't medal, so 75% gold in anything he tries.  So all in a week's work this week, 4 golds and 2 silver medals.  A tip of the hat to an American legend, Michael Phelps, you are the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
