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.
As the dog days of summer wind up (and football starts soon), at least one more nod to America's pastime. Although the Miami Marlins are in last place, they do have a reason for optimism with superstar Cuban phenom Jose Fernandez. Fernandez sits at 10-5, a 2.30 ERA, with 165 strikeouts in 152 2/3 innings. This week, Fernandez was 2-0, 13 IP, 8 H, 1 ER, 16 K. On the grander scale, Fernandez hasn't allowed more than 2 ER since July 7, hasn't allowed a HR since July 23, and, did we mention, just turned 21. Watch this kid, he might be a repeat winner of the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
