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.
Our Sportsman of the Week probably tends toward pitching more than hitting and now is the time to change that. A star is burgeoning in Colorado, and his name is Nolan Arenado. In only his second full season in the big leagues, the 24-year old is quickly placing himself in the discussion of Elite. Currently leading the National League in HR (36) and RBI (106, that's 2/3 of the triple crown, you know), he's already won two Gold Gloves (a third probable this season) and been an All-Star. This week, he raked for 15 hits in 34 AB, homering in six consecutive games and knocking in 12 runs. I know it's the rare air of Colorado, but note he now has 18 HR at home, 18 on the road. Note it was 18-12 more on the road until his six at home this week. The Rockies have a future MVP to build around, he is our Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
