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.
It's the dog days of summer, and that means baseball. This week's Sportsman is a veteran of the game, and put up historic numbers for a historic franchise. New York Yankees LF Alfonso Soriano was on watch all week for breaking RBI records by series of games, all the while leading his team to a 5-2 record. But as for his numbers, a video game worthy 15-31, 5 HR, 18 RBI. Amazingly, he was 0-9 in the first and last game of the week, putting him at 15-22 during the Tuesday through Saturday span. His effort has put the Yankees back in the thick of the playoff race and secured him a tab as Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
