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 crunch time for baseball, and once again a Boston Red Sox hitter is our Sportsman of the Week. David Ortiz had a week that has all of baseball scratching their heads...how to get him out. Over the first four games of the World Series, Big Papi was 8 out of 11 (.727), with 2 HR and a double. He scored 5 and knocked in 5. He also tied a World Series record by reaching base on nine straight plate appearances (counting Monday's effort, in which he was 3/4 and raised his .727 average if that's possible). It was a very tough decision given Calvin Johnson's unbelievable effort, but it is the World Series, so David Ortiz is your Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
