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.
Football is rounding into midseason form, but baseball is moving toward an epic postseason. The final game of the MLB season was filled with six games having playoff implications, but the one we want to talk about wasn't one of them. A no-hitter on the final game of the season. Jordan Zimmermann of the Washington Nationals calmly put down 27 Miami Marlins with nary a hit. The final out, a catch by Steven Souza going deep into the gap was amazing in and of itself. Zimmermann was your 2013 NL leader in wins and had a 2.66 ERA this season. A worthy Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
