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,

Super Bowl Gives A Rare Occurrence This Time

Posted 01-31-2021 at 10:42 AM by case44


Y'all will have plenty of reasons to tune in to the Super Bowl next week. Based on tradition (and the course of habit), one would anticipate the game itself or the commercials which the proceedings will be graciously interrupted with for the sake of making memories. Super Bowl LV. It's as old as this writer.

There are reasons why I haven't watched the NFL this year and actually have reservations about watching Super Bowl Five-Five. For starters, if the players don't stand for our great American flag at the time our National Anthem is played, then what's the point in watching? We don't need to bow to domestic terrorist groups such as Black Lives Matter or Antifa or some other band of thugs in order to appease people's grievances. People watch the NFL as a means of sports, entertainment, and a respite. You know the drill.

So, this year's event will feature two great quarterbacks, one who had been around a block a few times, and another who is just getting warmed up. Those will be the stars of the show. Tom Brady. Patrick Mahomes. Two very fine quarterbacks who have earned their bacon by playing in the Big Game. It's the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers going after it. But what will really be the glaring occurrence in this extravaganza is that the game will be played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. Man, Tom Brady gets to be the home-field quarterback in what usually would be a neutral site. And this time, he gets to do it with a Tampa Bay uniform and not as a member of the New England Patriots, where he basked in his past glory.

Prediction: I think Tampa pulls it off, but it should be a close game.

Tampa Bay 38, Kansas City 34

We'll see what transpires next Sunday.

    Chiefs underdogs? Never, Case. Mahomes is going to be all over Brady on Sunday. Kansas City's offensive and defensive units are too good and simply too dominant to give an inch.

    KC 37, TB 17.

    Just realized that if TB wins, two cities will have the four championship teams in the major sports since the last SB.
