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 7/24/2016

The Tour De France remains one of the mainstay summer sporting events not only in Europe, but across the World.  Cyclists from the six continents unite for three weeks of daily racing contests with an overall (General Classification) winner crowned, along with points winners in catergories like sprints, mountain climbs, and young rider.  But it's the GC that gets the most attention.  And for the second year in a row, and three out of four, British cyclist (by way of Kenya) Chris Froome of Team Sky was the clear winner by over 4 minutes.  After gaining minutes and seconds in all the critical stages in the first two weeks, the decisive blow was a dominant mountain time trial stage victory on Stage 18 (his second stage victory of the Tour).  It's his third nod, a worthy Sportsman of the Week!
