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.
Not often a kicker stars above and beyond all other Sportsmen (and Sportswomen) but this week is an exception. Justin Tucker of the Baltimore Ravens single-handedly kicked his team back into playoff contention by connecting on six field goals, the last over 60 yards as time expired, to lift the Ravens to an improbably 18-16 victory over the Detroit Lions (putting a dagger in their post-season hopes. Tucker connected from 29, 24, 32, 49, 53, then 61 as the clock expired. Totaling 248 yards (and roughly 23 fantasy points), Tucker gets the nod for Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
