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.
Week two of the Olympics, and in one of the most visible team sports in the Sochi Games, one individual stood out. You can't win a hockey game if you can't score. And in the knockout round of hockey during week 2, Team Canada goalie Carey Price took that to heart. He allowed but one goal to Latvia's Lauris Darzins, then proceeded to shut out the number 2 seed United States, and number 1 seed Sweden over 160 minutes scoreless by the end. Overally, Price stopped 70 out of 71 shots for a 0.33 GAA. Against the most elite competition hockey has to offer. Two of the games were slight one goal wins, so it wasn't that his perfect services were not needed. Congratulations to Carey Price for being the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
