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.

Sportswomen of the Week Ending 2/25/2018

As the 2018 Winter Games wound down to a dramatic close, it was a dramatic finish in Cross-Country Skiing Team Sprint that did what they weren't supposed to do.  That was win a Gold Medal.  For Team USA.  In cross-country skiing.  The first for the women's national team.  And it was hard earned.  Kikkan Randall and Jessie Diggins outraced perennial powers Sweden (silver) and Norway (bronze) to take home the first medal for the United States.  Randall and Diggins are separated by almost ten years in age, with Randall representing the birth of a world class United States program and Diggins bursting on the scene in high school and continuing her success in the International Competitions.  They will be remembered as pioneers of their sport and American heroes.  Proud to name them our Sportswomen of the Week!
