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 1/24/2016

Another weekend dominated by Championship football and an underdog team crashed the Super Bowl Party.  Denver Broncos LB Von Miller played like a man possessed and obsessed...obsessed with knocking around New England Patriots QB Tom Brady like he was a pinata.  Miller tormented the Patriots Offensive Line, running backs, and most of all, Brady.  He ended with 5 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 1 pass deflection, 2 tackles for loss, 4 QB hits and an interception in Patriots territory.  Now that's filling up a stat sheet.  When he didn't make the tackle or hit, he was drawing double and triple teams to allow his teammates to shoot gaps and completely disrupt the Patriots offense, which was held in check all night.  Miller's individual play gives him our Sportsman of the Week!
