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 4/28/2024

The NBA and NHL (a.k.a. Stanley Cup) Playoffs are in full swing and, as usual, heroes are emerging. The Minnesota Timberwolves are one of the teams that people are watching whether they can emerge and make a run at an elusive NBA Championship.  They entered what some thought would be a precarious series against a veteran, talented Phoenix Suns team but took no time to establish dominance.  And 22-year-old Anthony Edwards is showing why he was a great selection in the top spot of the 2022 draft.  Edwards torched the Suns, with Games 3 and 4 with 36 and 40 points respectively.  He also filled the stat sheet with 9 rebounds each game, 5.5 assists a game and a couple of blocked shots.  8 of 18 from deep, 18 of 21 from the line, he did it all.  Edwards is a big reason that we may see a Finals team not named the Nuggets and is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
