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.

Sportsman of the Week Ending 8/30/2015

Another week of baseball and another no-hitter.  Against the Los Angeles Dodgers.  Chicago Cubs ace Jake Arrieta matched our sportsman from last week's feat, just nine days later.  On prime time Sunday Night Baseball, Arrieta fanned 12 Dodgers and recorded his MLB leading 17th win.  He lowered his ERA to 2.17 and reduced his WHIP to a microscopic 0.94 runners per nine innings for the season.  Arrieta finished an amazing month with six wins in six starts and only two earned runs.  Impressive enough for a likely Player of the Month and definitely impressive enough for our Sportsman of the Week!
