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.
It was an eventful opening weekend of the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (that's the XXXI Olympiad for those in a base four system) and sensational performances are already abound. Tennis upsets, thrilling cycling road races, and a staple of the first week: Swimming. American Katie Ledecky was expected to blaze through the pool and that she did in the 400m freestyle final. Blazing in terms of demolishing an admirable Silver medal swimmer by nearly 5 seconds, and breaking her own World Record by almost 2 seconds. And the D.C. born, Baltimore native Ledecky is just getting started having also medaled in the 4x100m freestyle (silver). She'll be gold digging for the 200m and 800m free styles in the days to come. Hard to imagine she won't come home with two more golds. And she is our Longhorndave Sportswoman of the Week!
