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 6/25/2023


One of the best stories of the early MLB season is the Cincinnati Reds.  The oldest and certainly proud franchise hasn't finished higher than third place since their last Division title in 2012.  The Houston Astros were still in the National League back then.  Which is also the last time they won a playoff game.  They've only won two playoff games since 1990, their last World Series Championship.  But hope springs eternal especially in the bat, arm, and legs of Elly De La Cruz.  The all-everything prospect created a buzz when he was called up and hasn't disappointed.  In fact, he was a big part of the team's 12-game winning streak, the franchise's longest since 1957.  The 21-year-old De La Cruz was 11-20 Monday through Saturday, with 2 HR, 8 R, 4 RBI, 2 SB, he did it all.  All also being the first cycle since 1989 in spectacular fashion with a stop-watch inducing triple.  De La Cruz has given the Queen City hope and will be an entertaining star for a couple of decades to come.  The Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
