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 4/26/2020

I would have lost a bet that I would have had an eSports entry into my Blog as Sportsman of the Week, but not all bets are sure things.  And this week's winner is a legitimate athlete when they let him play.  Or drive.  A car that is.  Alex Bowman is one of the younger favorite drivers in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and pulled a big upset on Sunday in winning at Talladaga.  Or at least, virtual Talladega.  In a spectacular 70 lap race on the fastest track in NASCAR, Bowman survived several late wrecks and outdueled Corey Lajoie in overtime for his first iRacing win.  Bowman is a fan favorite and finally scored a reality win at Chicagoland in 2019 and now becomes only the second driver to win both a real and virtual event on the NASCAR Cup Series circuit.  The eNASCAR/iRacing events are a fun way to spend a Sunday and our Sportsman of the Week is a big reason why!
