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.
World Cup fever has spread throughout, well, the World. With so many teams and infrequent games, it's difficult to put one player in the spotlight, but I think we've found a deserving one. The name on the back of his jersey resembles and American sports icon. "James". But that's just his first name, Rodriguez is his last name. And the 22-year old Colombian has quickly become the superstar of the tournament. Last week, he scored 3 goals in two games (with two assists) as Colombia has surged into the quarterfinals. His two-goal performance against Uruguay (a 2-0 win mind you) included a "golazo", a spectacular control of a pass to his left foot and a rocket. He's scored in every Colombian game so far. James Rodriguez, you are the next great thing in soccer, and you are the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
