Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Regards,

Perhaps The Astros Need To Consider New Pre- And Post- On Radio

Posted 05-31-2019 at 06:00 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Love it or hate it, the Houston Astros production staff at least tries to put a good product out each game. Radio guys Robert Ford and Steve Sparks are getting better with play-by-play and analysis, and I still think that those can get to the next level.

Their pre-game show is called Astrolaunch, which makes sense, given the space theme the franchise offers. Problem is, they still can't come up with a decent name for its post-game show. And from what I've seen...

At Monterey, For This Year, It's Not So Lonely At The Top

Posted 05-26-2019 at 10:47 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Teachers, administrators, and parents always give some incentive to students to do well in the class and in life. Usually, every year, each school has one valedictorian and one salutatorian walk across the stage and the number 1 and number 2 in the class.

But, sometimes, class ranks can play with people's emotions. You might encounter a tie for valedictorian, which is rare but does happen. It's often fun to see how students' scores will play out once commencement...

A Sixth Terminal At DFW? Oh, Yes, It's Happening

Posted 05-26-2019 at 10:14 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Just when you thought that Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport could not get any bigger, guess what comes along? My jaw did drop when I read about it in Community Impact online yesterday, and the airport's website has something to say. Terminal F is going to happen.

I implore you to meet me back here on this blog in 2025 (provided our Lord wills and the creeks don't rise and the runways don't buckle ), because that's when the new terminal at DFW is expected to...

My Addiction To Crazy Golf Moments

Posted 05-24-2019 at 08:10 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

You hoped you'd see ridiculous stuff on The Masters or the PGA Championship as this year's events unfolded. Well, this writer took some time and found some great stuff from yesteryear on YouTube.

Indulge me.

I cannot help it, but I love seeing some wild and crazy golf plays. Some of the game's best and even some unknown players get involved in really serious clutch moments. Wanna see a hole in one? Well, you can find a few of them, plus...

An Oddity Needs To Be Changed On An Arkansas Highway

Posted 05-24-2019 at 07:59 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Odd things tend to happen in the least likely places. How often, good readers, do you see the same exit number in two different locations on the same interstate highway................in the same state??

(Cue the "Jeopardy" theme song....)

Well, it's happening, all right. None other than Arkansas, too. You see, Interstate 49 is an up-and-coming corridor establishing an up-and-coming presence in the state right now. The corridor contains...
