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 2/25/2024


One of the great stories of the hockey season has been the emergence of Canadian Hockey Teams with a chance to win their first Stanley Cup in over 30 years.  The Toronto Maple Leafs are in the middle of the discussion, and they are led by a Captain that is pushing goal records.  On Thursday, Auston Matthews scored his 52nd goal in 55 games, imagine a player that gets one you netter per game pretty much.  A 70 goal season, very much in play, puts him in elite company of Gretzky, Lemieux, Brett Hull, and more.  But most important the Leafs have won seven straight and may be peaking at the right time.  Matthews is one of the best NHL stories this year and is a worthy Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
