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 10/1/2023


Parity may be the rule of the 2023 NFL season, but a familiar team from recent and historical playoffs is dominating.  Thanks to a superstar running back that positions the San Francisco 49ers to be one of the most dangerous teams of the year.  Christian McCaffrey has entered, or really continued, his prime in which he is borderline unstoppable. MVP unstoppable if voters will look past quarterbacks.  McCaffrey shredded the Arizona Cardinals for an easy 106 yards on 20 carries and 3 touchdowns in a 35-16 Niners victory.  His longest run was 18 yards so that wasn't padded by a breakaway.  Add to that a game leading 7 catches (one for a TD) for another 71 yards (with longest also under 20 yards).  He basically was an automatic 10 yard weapons just get him the ball.  This isn't Christian McCaffrey's first Sportsman of the Week and may not be his last!
