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.

Sportswoman of the Week Ending 2/24/2019

There's an American sports legend among us, but not nearly appreciated enough for her dominance.  Mikaela Shiffrin.  At the age of 23, she rocked the World Championships of skiing with gold medals in Slalom and Super G with a bronze in the Giant Slalom.  Winning her fourth straight Slalom title was a challenge, given her health.  She went from a tickle in her throat to borderline pneumonia in about a two hour span (credit Denver Post).  She currently sits at the top of the World Cup standings with top points in the Slalom, Super G, and Giant Slalom.  Her dominance continues the rest of the ski season, but she is a worthy Sportswoman of the Week!
