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 5/4/2014

Exciting times in sports, with both the NBA and NHL running through the early rounds of the playoffs.  Which means lots of games and lots of heroes.  None bigger, probably, than a goalie who led his team to three wins over the week, now five straight total.  Los Angeles Kings netminder Jonathan Quick held the San Jose Sharks to 2 goals over the final three games.  For the week, he won three times, with four goals in three games for a 96% save percentage.  Throw in a shutout before that (last week) and it jumps to 97%.  Suddenly the Kings are the hottest team in hockey (after being the first team to go down 3 games to 0).  And this week's Sportsman of the Week is a big reason why.
