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.
By my count, this is only the second time in blog history we've awarded the Sportsman of the Week in a losing effort. But sometimes, when a player puts his team on his back and still comes up short, it's worthy. The United States Men's National Team (#USMNT) put forth a valiant effort in the 2014 World Cup, but couldn't quite crack the Final 8. But not for the effort of goalkeep Tim Howard. Howard put forth 16 brilliant saves in a 2-1 loss to a persistent Belgian team. The game was scoreless after the first 90 minutes, then the peppering was too much in extra time. But the effort is definitely worthy of a nod from our Blog as Sportsman of the Week!
