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.
There were a lot of outstanding players this weekend of the NFL Division Playoffs, but this week's Sportsman of the Week put his team on his back and lifted them to a third straight AFC Championship Game. LeGarrette Blount of the New England Patriots busted out for 166 yards and 4 TD as his team advanced to face the Denver Broncos. After a moribund first 15 games never breaking 70 yards in a single game with only 5 TDs, he's surged for 355 yards and 6 TD in Week 17 (a key win to get the Bye) and Divisional Playoff. His most defining run, a 73 yard dagger that put the Patriots up by 14, was the difference-making play to win the game. LeGarrette Blount is this week's Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
