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 2/26/2023


Rounding into full Spring Sports and the National Hockey League playoff chase is in full throttle.  One team has completely lapped the rest of the field and is about to lap them again.  The Boston Bruins have been the class of the league from fall until today.  And you don't get this way without epic goaltending.  Linus Ullmark has emerged as the elite net minder in the NHL and had another epic week.  He's won five straight starts allowing 8 goals total.  This week, 2 games, to wins, 2 goals allowed.  Not only that, he scored a goal netting a late goal in a win against Vancouver.  That's doing it all.  The 29-year-old Swede toiled six years in Buffalo before now emerging as the best in the league in his first year over 40 games.  Will be the talk of the Stanley Cup Finals, and our Sportsman of the Week!
