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 8/17/2014

The August "month of baseball" continues, this time with one of the best young talents and sluggers in Major League baseball.  The Miami Marlins Giancarlo Stanton has been touted as the "next great power hitter" for a couple of years now, and now is here.  He leads the National League with 32 home runs and 88 RBI, padded this week by an all-around good performance going 9-23 (.391) with 7 walks, for a .533 on-base percentage.  Add 3 HR, 9 RBI, and a Marlins record at 5-2, including taking a series vs. the playoff-contending St. Louis Cardinals.  Giancarlo Stanton is our Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
