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 8/31/2014

It's football season, at least college started and there were a number of new, instant superstars abound.  None set the nation on fire more than Texas A&M's QB Kenny Hill.  Playing in literally the first game of the year (Thursday at 6 EDT), the freshman Hill torched a Top 10 South Carolina Gamecocks defense for 511 yards (!) and 3 TD, breaking the single game yardage school record by his predecessor, Heisman Trophy winner John Manziel.  He found 12 different receivers, going 44-60 (might as well have been throwing against air).  The Aggies racked up 31 points in the first half, and another 21 in the second easing to victory.  On the road.  In the SEC.  He is a new star in college football, and our Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
