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 5/3/2015

An amazing sports week wrapped up with outstanding performances across no fewer than a dozen sports.  We turn to the Stanley Cup Playoffs this week, as the end of the first round and beginning of the second round has given clarification as to who has a chance to raise the Cup in June.  Tampa Bay Lightning center Tyler Johnson announced his budding stardom with a dominating performance to not only propel his team past the first round over the perennial power Detroit Red Wings, but also get a big leg up against the favored Montreal Canadiens with a pair of wins.  For the week, Johnson netted 3 goals and 2 assists in four games.  Most importantly, his team was 4-0, winning three games on the road.  The Lightning sit in the drivers seat for the Eastern Conference finals as they head back to Tampa with a 2-0 lead.  The 24 year-old from Washington (state) is the future face of American hockey
