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 hard to migrate away from football this week, and our Sportsman truly exhibited the characteristics of greatness in a key individual matchup and contest. The Denver Broncos Peyton Manning dissected a New England Patriots defense to the tune of 32-43 for 400 yards with 2 TD, methodically keeping the ball away from his rival Tom Brady for over 35 minutes of play. And his Denver Broncos advanced to the Super Bowl by an easy 26-16 margin. It could have been worse if they needed more points, but they largely played keep away in the fourth quarter, settling for long, time-consuming drives and field goals. Peyton Manning becomes the second athlete to be awarded this honor two times (LeBron James is the other). I cannot think of two more dominant athletes of our era to earn it. Congratulations Peyton, you are the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
