UTSA players celebrate their win over Western Kentucky.
The news came at us fast and furious this week — and, sheesh, was it varied. As in all over the fricken place.

Two music stories about San Antonio favorites — Sammy Hagar and the Last Bandoleros — ended up among our most-read stories of the week, but so did UTSA's history-making football season. And so was another pissing match involving right-wing provocateur — and occasional lawmaker — U.S. Rep. Chip Roy.

When the headlines are that varied, it sure is hard to detect a theme running through them other than this: San Antonio ain't the sleepy town it once was.
