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.
We just can't resist the NFL this time of year, and new (old) stars are emerging. Darren Sproles of the Philadelphia Eagles looked like a man in a time machine. The 5'6" (that's one inch taller than Jose Altuve) human jackknife had eleven touches for 178 yards (26 rushing, 152 passing) as the Eagles secured a 2-0 start in hostile Indianapolis territory. More impressively, 148 of his receiving yards were after the catch. Basically, he was flipped the ball and turned the Colts defense into a video game. Sproles has been doing this for 9 seasons...the 0-2 Saints are answering some tough questions as to how they let him go.
