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.
Third week in a row we go to the World Cup, but why not, it only comes every 4 years. And there was one game that really mattered, the World Cup Final on Sunday. After 110 minutes of (a relatively exciting) 0-0 stalemate (no really, there were lots of opportunities), Germany's Mario Gotze broke through with a beautiful goal. On the center pass, he settled with the chest, then pounded with the left foot. Argentina goalkeep Sergio Romero had no chance. And Super Mario was the hero of a nation who hadn't won a Cup in 24 years. And our Sportsman of the Week!
