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.
Monster competition this week between NBA and NHL playoffs, the greatest day in motor sports, and MLB action. We have to give a nod to the first no hitter of 2014. Josh Beckett of the Los Angeles Dodgers was the perpetrator, keeping the hapless Phillies in check for 9 innings, with dominant stuff and solid fielding. He's gone from a 20-something flame-thrower to a 30-something master of the pitching art. For the no-hitter, he threw 128 pitches, 80 for strikes to get his third win in as many starts (so for the week, he went 2-0). We love no hitters, and Josh Beckett gave us what we like, and is our Sportsman of the Week!
