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 2/24/2013

The "Great American Race" means something here.  In a thrilling finish in which 20 or so drivers were within 5 seconds, Jimmie Johnson outpaced the competition to win the Daytona 500.  To cap his 5 NASCAR Cup victories and his previous Daytona 500 win in 2006, Johnson proved that despite the hype surrounding Danica Patrick or the latest cup victory by Brad Keselowski, Johnson is going to be around to torment his opponents, and no victory in Daytona or on the Cup will be easy.  Johnson is a textbook case winner for the Sportsman of the Week!


  1. After going to the US Grand Prix in November, I have a new level of respect for auto racing in general.
