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.
The Houston Astros are choo chooing to another World Series title, and it's a different hero this year than last. Alex Bregman has been the one steady force on a team that already featured a reigning Most Valuable Player plus two former Cy Young Award pitchers. But it was Bregman who gave the Astros a stranglehold on what turned out to be an easy sweep of the Cleveland Indians in the American League Division Series. In the first two games at home, he was 3-6, with 2 HR and 2 BB. Add 3 runs and 3 RBI and he was basically in the middle of everything. The next day when the Astros closed it out, he was on base six times (2 hits, 2 walks, 1 HBP, and reached on error). Unstoppable. And he's only 24. He's a big reason the Astros are poised to repeat as World Series Champions and is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
