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 1/13/2013

With an exciting weekend of NFL Division playoffs, this player stood head and shoulders above the rest.  Experts questioned whether Colin Kaepernick could lead his team to victory against the proven, and former Super Bowl and NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and he came out shining.  After an early bad break pick 6, he threw for 263 yards and two TD's, but more impressively, ran for 181 yards and another two TD.  Any RB with 181 and two TD's would be lauded as the dominant factor in winning the game, Kaepernick did it out of the pocket just using his ability, and broke Michael Vick's playoff record for QB rushing yards in a game.  He is a breakthrough player for sure, and the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
