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.

Sportswoman of the Week Ending 8/14/2016

The Olympics continue and was clearly the sports story of the week.  Swimming, Gymnastics, basketball, cycling, contact sports and it goes on and on.  But it was gymnastics, specifically the United States women that took the spotlight.  Led by Simone Biles, who led the team to Gold, then won all-around gold, and took gold in the Vault.  Biles was three for three earning gold and in dominant fashion.  Two more shots at gold (the first ended in bronze today in balance beam; floor exercise is still to go).  But the first three were not even close.  The United States women had the event sewn up before the final event.  She beat her teammate by 2 points for the All-Around.  The distance between her and the 2nd place Vault finisher was larger than the distance between 2nd and 8th.  She represents the United States with athleticism, grace, and class, and is our Longhorndave Sportswoman of the Week!
