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 1/26/2014

No NFL this week, so we check down to a tour sport and we do have the first tour major (i.e. Grand Slam) of the year, the Australian Open.  And this year's winner on the men's side emerged to win his first Grand Slam title.  Stanislas Wawrinka emerged among a hall of fame field including Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Andy Murray, and runner up Rafael Nadal (6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3.  Some might say the victory was not pure because of Nadal's physical ailments, but when a tournament starts with 128 participants and you win seven straight, you are a Grand Slam winner.  And this week's Longhorndave Sporstman of the Week!
