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.
This blog loves underdogs and those not expected to succeed, and this week's Sportsman of the Week has both. 50 year-old jockey Gary Stevens pulled off what nobody (or at least bettors and fans) thought possible, ran a race that Preakness Stakes favorite Orb could not match. Stevens rode 15:1 underdog Oxbow to an easy win at Pimlico Race Course, leading essentially wire-to-wire. Stevens came out of a 7+ year retirement this year to see if he still had it. Spoiler, he does. He is everything great about Sportsmen, and this week's Sportsman of the Week!
