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.
With the World Series complete, it's back to football. There's been some strong performances in the NFL for quarterbacks, but this week's Sportsman has been head and shoulders above the rest (and not just because he is tall). Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger has had the two week span of his life. For this week, he threw a record six TD passes (vs. no INTs) while netting 340 yards against an aggressive Baltimore Ravens defense. And he led his team to the key Division victory. He was coming off a 522 yard performance in which he might have set an all-time record if he'd have kept throwing. The Steelers are looking vintage, and Big Ben is the reason why, and our Sportsman of the Week!
