Sportsman of the Week Ending 2/16/2014
T.J. Oshie was a relative unknown just seven days ago, but suddenly was the most popular athlete in the United States in something like a 10 minute elapsed time. During the United States vs. Russia preliminary (yes, preliminary) game, the superstars on both sides skated to a 2-2 tie after overtime. T.J. Oshie made the only U.S. goal in the first three penalty shots, then drained three more over the next five rounds, twice needing it to extend the game, then the final one to send Team USA to the game, and group victory. T.J. Oshie enters the annals of American Olympic history, and is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
