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 11/17/2013

Going a little off the typical sports for this time of year, but the United States Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas is planting it's Stars and Stripes flag to become the equivalent of the Monaco Grand Prix, or any other major country attracting the absolute best in Formula 1.  Austin, Texas, hosted the second annual USGP and about 250,000 fans took notice over the 3-day weekend (some maybe repeat customers). Sebastian Vettel of Germany took the checkered flag in his eighth straight F1 victory, more than demonstrating dominance in this motor sports for the well financially backed.   Vettel is 26 years old, has already won four World Championships, and showed Americans what the elite of the F1 circuit is about.  He is a worthy Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
