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 1/6/2013

With the first round of NFL playoffs and a feast of college bowls this week, a lot of great athletes to choose from.  Jadeveon Clowney stood head and shoulders above the rest during his play in the Outback Bowl.  While only registering 5 tackles total, his hit on Michigan running back Vincent Smith with the Gamecocks trailing halfway through the 4th Quarter.  Clowney moved so quickly to the backfield to rock Smith the minute he touched the ball, his helmet flew one direction 10 yards, and the ball dribbled by his side, which was promptly palmed by Clowney for the recovery.  All this after a momentum changing first down spot (and curious call) that kept South Carolina in the game, and eventually led to a South Carolina victory in the last 11 seconds.  Crazy that Clowney isn't even draft eligible until 2014, cue the "Suck for Clowney" signs around the NFL next year.
