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.
Memorial Day weekend is know for playoff basketball, playoff hockey, baseball, and the Indianapolis 500. The 99th running of the Indy Car "Greatest Spectacle in Racing" did not disappoint with four drivers in the final mix over the last few dozen laps. But it was Juan Pablo Montoya who emerged as the winner. It would be one thing if he sat on the pole and just cruised. But twice he was relegated to the back of the pack. The first after a rough and tumble opening lap that saw contact dislodge a piece of his tail that caused an early pit stop. The second upon a penalty in the pits much later in the race. Each time he climbed over 20 or more drivers. By the last few laps, nobody was going to pass him. Montoya gets our nod for Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
