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.

Sportswoman of the Week Ending 7/5/2015

With a number of major sports events going on, the FIFA Womens World Cup took center stage this week, with four traditional powers battling for the trophy.  It was the United States that prevailed, and the championship game performance by our Sportswoman of the week did what may never be replicated.  American Carli Lloyd not only scored a hat trick, but she did it in the first 16 minutes of the game.  It was her fourth straight game with a tally (during each of the knockout round games). She also contributed a goal and an assist on Tuesday in the crucial semifinal defeat of the Worlds Number 1 team Germany.  On the World's biggest stage, Lloyd is our deserving Sportswoman of the Week!
