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!

Houston's Other Sports Teams Need To Start Capitalizing On The Astros' Success

Posted 10-17-2022 at 02:48 PM by case44

If you've been watching the Major League Baseball playoffs, my goodness, you have seen some great baseball played in the last week. The divisional series are almost entirely wrapped up as we wait for one more game to determine the American League Championship Series....................so that team can play my Houston Astros.

And one of our colleagues on City-Data is as ready for a World Series championship as this writer is.

Agreed, RMESMH. There are a few other things I'd like to see in the city of Houston besides one vigorously successful franchise, and that's to see three more. The Rockets (NBA) have not been impressive in recent years and haven't had a measurable run of success since Rudy Tomjanovich was their head coach. I'm not overly hip on Stephen Silas as their current head coach, but I would definitely like for this franchise to start putting together a more sustainable winner. That's a lot harder to do in the NBA than it is in baseball. The same would hold true, really, for the NFL, where the Houston Texans have to deal with bad ownership and poor decisions internally. I can make a good case for Nick Caserio as their general manager, as he's come over to Houston from a winning atmosphere with the New England Patriots. I don't know if Lovie Smith is the head coach of the future for this team, but they need to play their cards right at draft time. Finally, there's the Houston Dynamo FC, who had been pretty successful upon arriving in the Bayou City from San Jose in 2005. I can see much more from these guys in the future, and hopefully, the new incoming owner will see to it that they might be able to copy the Astros' success.

Now, if Houston could just bring in an NHL team....

    I think that the Texans could maybe hire a new offensive coordinator who has coached in Houston before, and is originally from S. TX. He’s currently a head coach out west, but might not be there much longer. New England could get him first, though, because of his familiarity with the current HC there.

    Edit: Maybe I spoke too soon (not the first time). Getting a five-time pro bowler back (former Texan Hopkins) could save Kingsbury’s job. The team also gets another key contributor back fairly soon.
