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 10/4/2015

In desperate need of a win, the New Orleans Saints venerable quarterback Drew Brees stepped up.  Having missed Week 3 with a bad shoulder, he was uncertain to play on Sunday Night Football against the Dallas Cowboys.  But play he did, and perform he did.  In a thrilling overtime victory, Brees went 33-41 for 359 yards and 2 TD.  The last 80 yards were the most sweet, as he ended the overtime affair with an 80 yard pass and catch with speedster C.J. Spiller.  The previously winless Saints really needed his heroics after missing a short field goal to end regulation.  Brees stepped up and willed his team to victory.  For that, he is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!

This is Drew Brees second nod as Sportsman of the Week (w/e 10/7/2012)
