Welcome To Case's Column

Since this will be my first venture into the mysterious world of blogging, 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.

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, I'll set aside a place here 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.

Here you are. My very first blog page. Come on in and share in the experience. I'm interested in seeing where this is all going. And thanks in advance for dropping by!

Regards,

Astros Have Plenty Of Reason For Optimism In 2015

Posted 12-18-2014 at 03:56 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

In a division that is potentially tough, it can also be regarded as one that's wide open. The American League West is going to be tough and wide open. Had to think a little bit, huh? I know, but stay with me on this.

Every team in the AL West will have an opportunity to contend, and all of them will have reason to be optimistic for the 2015 regular season. You could say that the Houston Astros have a lot to be optimistic about, especially when you consider...

Country Songs Just Have The Best Titles Anywhere

Posted 12-15-2014 at 07:40 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

As many of you know, I'm a country music enthusiast. Specifically, I'm into classic country music. It has a very long, rich history of telling stories about life, put together with catchy melodies. But have you ever stopped and thought about some of the titles of those songs?

Words do matter in country music, maybe more so than in any other genre. Sometimes, you might chuckle at some of the things that happen in this thing we call life. You'll sometimes hear...

Frisco Needs To Keep Their Old Rivalries Together

Posted 12-13-2014 at 06:12 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

I realize that this is still a work in progress. This began when Centennial High School opened in Frisco, Texas, to form the city's second high school. That was in 2003. This would break the mold and set the stage for future Friday night football dates and anything else that applies. Frisco High and Centennial has seen a rivalry grow over a period of time, and now it's one of the most anticipated games in town.

Rivalries take time.

That said, Frisco...

It's Time The Big 12 Had Twelve Teams Once Again

Posted 12-10-2014 at 09:05 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

For the past couple of years, the Big 12 has had to deal with a new identity after having been downsized by several teams leaving the conference and a few new ones joining them. But why in the flip does the Big 12 have to be called the Big 12 when there are only ten teams in it?



Commissioner Bob Bowlsby needs to think about expanding the conference back to a 12-team format and have two divisions within it. College football's landscape just seems...

Texas: A Place Where Bigness Is A State Of Mind

Texas is a big state, to say the least. Have you ever thought about the land mass in this great big state? Man alive! We've only got 254 counties, and that means, well, at least 254 stories from people who live in them.

When your bidness is bigness, Texas brings home the bacon. Some of the largest things to be found in America are located right here. Everywhere you look in this vast expanse, you will always find something big. Big hair. Big...
