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 5/10/2020

Our society is inching closer and closer every week back to live sports at least on television.  A preview was on Saturday night, as the Ultimate Fighting Championship staged a fan-less event and it worked.  In the lightweight event, Underdog (+160) Justin Gaethje punished Champion Tony Ferguson through five rounds for a TKO that would have thrilled a crowd had it been in attendance.  After a couple of rounds that were pretty close including big blows by both combatants, Gaethje really turned the tide in the third round and a battered Ferguson never seemed to recover.  By the 5th round he was done, with just 82 seconds left before the final bell it was all but over and the ref stopped the fight justifiably.  A new champion emerged.  And more importantly, it showed sports will go on and sooner than later.  Justin Gaethje is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
