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 10/15/2017

A thrilling MLB postseason so far, and a new hero has emerged on the only team west of the Pecos still alive.  The Los Angeles Dodgers Justin Turner has rekindled the momentum that the team had during their stretch of 56 wins in 67 games over the summer (56-11).  But for the postseason, the Dodgers are up to 5-0 overall record through Sunday and marching toward the Fall Classic.  Turner has done his part, going 9-21 with 2 HR, and 10 RBI, the biggest of which was a walk off 3 run HR to win Game 2 against the Chicago Cubs in the NLCS.  He's become the man in LA, and is hoping to deliver the first Dodgers title in nearly 30 years for Tinsel Town. Meanwhile Turner is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
