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,

Your Writer Made Texas/Kansas Predictions At Work --- With Startling Results

Posted 11-24-2022 at 02:52 PM by case44


While at work last Saturday (as of this writing), I had taken a look at the Big 12 college football schedule for the day, as well as my Texas Longhorns game against the Kansas Jayhawks. Now, no bets were placed, and all was in clean fun. I told a co-worker (who happened to graduate from UT) my predictions for Saturday's contests.

Basically, I said to him that Texas was going to win over Kansas, 45-14.

This is the portion of the blog post where you just lactate on that thought for a little bit.

....

Okay, I'm back. Did I make good on my Longhorn prediction?

Yes, in part. The final score, however, was actually 55 to 14. I got the Kansas portion correct, and the Longhorns did win, but I got their score total missed by ten. Can you imagine if I'd actually nailed that score to the letter? I would have gone to get a lottery ticket.


Oh, and in addition, my prediction about all the away teams in the Big 12 and how they were all going to win, well, that would have been a clean sweep if only the Oklahoma Sooners had just lost their annual Bedlam game with the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Turns out they didn't lose after all. That's the chips for you. All the other away teams won, but not OSU. Glad I didn't get a lottery ticket.

    With my Texas prediction, I proved my co-worker wrong. He did not think that UT would have won the game by the type of margin that they had. He actually thought the score would be much closer!
