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 1/12/2020

In one of the most thrilling and historic (in terms of comeback) games in NFL history, the Kansas City Chiefs roared back from a 24 point 2nd quarter deficit to easily win their AFC Division Round Playoff game by 20 points.  During the key 2nd quarter surge, it was Travis Kelce who put the team on his back (along with quarterback Patrick Mahomes II) to lead the charge.  Kelce hauled in 10 passes for 134 yards and 3 TD, all in the pivotal second quarter to set the Chiefs up for their first Super Bowl berth in 50 years.  Moreover, they will be hosting the title game at Arrowhead Stadium as the top remaining seed in the AFC.  Kelce was a matchup problem all day for the Texans, even shaking off an injury to continue to torment the Texans who had no answer.  With his size and speed and hands, he's a matchup problem for anyone, and is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
