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 2/18/2018

The Winter Olympics have not gone as strongly as the United States Olympic Committee would have liked (at least in terms of medal haul), but there certainly have been some strong points.  While four of the five American golds are in snowboarding related events, there is one silver in an event the United States has struggled to medal.  Luge.  Chris Mazdzer of the United States from Saranac Lake, NY, shocked the individual men's luge field with an impressive silver medal.  It was the first American medal in luge in 56 years.  Mazder set a course record on his third run, the held on to his second position in his final run to vault him into medal position in his third (and potentially final) Olympics.  Mazdzer showed the American Olympic spirit and is our Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
