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,

I Wouldn't Have Imagined This If I Were A Betting Man

In the game of baseball, you just never know what's going to happen. So, when I trudged on down to Austin to watch some more Texas Longhorn baseball (as my second trip down in two weeks), I'm not so sure if anyone would have ever expected today's outcome to end up like it did.

We'll come back to this in a minute. The Horns had the lead for most of the game and then had a dramatic comeback in the bottom of the ninth after losing the lead in the eighth. The two previous games Texas played against Xavier had the same final score, 6-5. What would become of today's showdown? Two competitive teams duked it out. Texas had to overcome some sloppy play in the middle innings but would miraculously get through them. The guys in burnt orange got the win and the sweep of Xavier. And today's final?

None other than..........................6-5!

Back to my thought from the first paragraph. Imagine being a Vegas oddsmaker for this one. I don't think he could have foreseen the final score. 6-5. All three games. All Texas wins.
