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 12/4/2016

Storybook.  That can be the only adjective (or is it a noun, or both) to describe Eric Berry's return to his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia.  For the first time in his career.  Having been there last time to recover from lymphoma.  On the field, his Kansas City Chiefs won the game 29-28.  In a battle of playoff favorite teams, it was two plays that he tilted for his team.  He scored an interception return for a 30 yard TD in the first quarter.  Then in improbable fashion (like never been done in the NFL), he returned a 2-point conversion attempt by the Atlanta Falcons back 99 yards to turn a 27-28 deficit to a 29-28 lead.  Single handedly carrying his team to victory.  The second Kansas City Chief in a row, Eric Berry is our Sportsman of the Week!
