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 6/12/2016

Nobody would have thunk that the Pittsburgh Penguins would win the Stanley Cup with rookie goaltender Matt Murray.  Murray made his NHL debut in December, but took a stranglehold on the Pens goalie position in March.  He won his final seven starts in March and April and was established as their starter in the playoffs.  In the four wins in the Stanley Cup finals against the San Jose Sharks, he allowed five goals.  For the week, 2 goals in the 2 wins.  In the playoffs, stormed through the Presidents Cup winning Washington Capitals, the defending Eastern Conference Champion Tampa Bay Lightning, and then Western Conference Champions San Jose Sharks.  The Pens never faced an elimination game.  Matt Murray is off to a hot start to his career, his name is on the Cup, and he is our Sportsman of the Week!
