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 10/13/2013

This week's sportsman has emerged from rookie obscurity to be a playoff difference-maker in a matter of months.  Michael Wacha of the St. Louis Cardinals burst onto the baseball scene with a near no-hitter on September 24 in his final regular season start, then has been occasionally tapped by manager Mike Matheny throughout these playoffs.  This week, he delivered two key wins for the Red Birds as they surge toward their second World Series in three years.  Wacha pitched brilliantly in delivering a must-have Game 4 NLDS victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates (in a Cardinals elimination game), then followed it up with a dominant NLCS Game 2 performance against the Los Angeles Dodgers.  For the week (and postseason), Wacha sits at 2-0, 14 IP, 6H, 1 ER, and 17K.  Amazing numbers and worth of the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
