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 3/4/2018

It's time for Spring sports.  Football is over.  Olympics are over.  Baseball hasn't started.  Basketball isn't quite to March Madness.  And NBA and NHL are in the dog days before the summer playoffs.  So why not track?  World sprint championships are a big deal.  And we have one.  American Christian Coleman won the 60m World Championship in Birmingham, England..  Time is 6.37 this week as he reminded us when he had a 6.34 a month ago.  He's a full stride ahead of the field in an era where the Justin Gatlins and Usain Bolts are head out to pasture.  Remember the name.  He's only 21.  And fast.  At 5'9" and 160 pounds, he seems built for championships.  Like 2020 Tokyo.  Or 2024 Paris.  The sky is the limit, and Coleman is the next great American sprinter.  And our Sportsman of the Week!
