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 5/15/2016

Pitching performances have been top notch so far this year with Chris Sale already at 8 wins, a no-hitter by Jake Arrieta, and now something even more rare than a perfect game.  A 20 strikeout game.  Max Scherzer was downright filthy in striking out 20 Detroit Tigers, that being his former team.  Two solo home runs made the 3-2 tilt close.  Victor Martinez is the only player not to strike out, accounting for 4 of the 13 at bats that did not result in a K.  The Washington Nationals high price ace joins Roger Clemens, Kerry Wood, and Randy Johnson in the exclusive club.  It's his second nod as Sportsman of the Week (his second nod)!
