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 8/21/2016

As the Games of the XXXI Olympiad wind down, there were countless stories of success, triumph, and disappointment.  With the second full week focusing on Track and Field, we'll look for the individual that proved to be the best of both Track and Field in the Decathlon.  American Ashton Eaton performed the grueling 10 event sequence in dramatic fashion to win his second consecutive gold medal.  The 6'1", 185 lb athletic wonder did running, jumping, vaulting, and throwing better than his competitors.  A true display of athleticism, he is crowned again as the greatest athlete in the world, and isn't that what the Olympics are about?  Ashton Eaton winds down our Olympics as the Sportsman of the Week!
