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.
A hat trick is one thing. Five goals in a game is another. But our Sportsman of the Week did just that. Mika Zibanejad of the New York Rangers tormented Ilya Samsonov of the Washington Capitals for the quinfecta in 52 minutes to give the Rangers a key win in their playoff chase in the Eastern Conference. Zibanejad scored 7 goals in 3 games over the week. His 39 goals this year are a career high and he's hit the 20 goals in a season 5 of the last 6 seasons. The Swede showed his mettle this week, and is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
