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 1/19/2014

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!
