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 7/12/2020

Rookies aren't suppose to win on the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series anyway.  Let alone at a challenging track like the Kentucky Speedway.  But our Sportsman of the Week did both, beating a strong field.  Cole Custer surged past prior Cup Series Champions like Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex Jr. to win on a restart of the Quaker State 400 after a crazy, crash-filled final 20 laps.  Constantly lurking toward the top with a surprisingly fast car, he found himself in the Top 4, then as the other three battled and rubbed, hit the outside groove to victory.  The Stewart-Haas driver of the 41 car now finds himself in the All Star race this week, as well as the playoffs, joining teammate Harvick.  It's not supposed to be like this. But it was, and Custer is now a NASCAR winner!
