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.
Sports in the United States and the world continues it's comeback. The second half of 2020 will be awesome. This week, it was NASCAR that returned to live events. Sure, no fans in person, but over 6 million tuned in to the Real Heroes 400, recognizing front line heroes in the medical field who have helped us through this pandemic. And the race was fun. Nobody had even a practice lap in Darlington, but once the engines roared, it was on. The ultimate winner was one of the best drivers and teams of this generation. Kevin Harvick from Stewart-Haas racing took the checkered flag for the 50th time in his career. As he edged Alex Bowman off of the last yellow flag restart, it wasn't close. Before that though, the race was fraught with strategy and adjustments as teams adjusted their car to the conditions. But Harvick prevailed and it was a small step to normalcy. Even if no fans were there to cheer.
