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 5/19/2013

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!
