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,

Case's Spring Getaway And Some College Baseball

Posted 03-21-2022 at 04:20 PM by case44


It was perfectly fitting that the first day of spring saw your writer take to the roads. Had me a good cup of Starbucks' latte. The weather outside was as perfect as any day could get. And there was a seat at Disch-Falk Field in Austin waiting for him, as there was a great opportunity to see a top-ranked Texas Longhorn baseball squad.

Clearly, it was time to get back to 'The Disch'. A day trip was previously planned, and this buzz-haired critter took full advantage. With the COVID plandemic and all of its baggage firmly behind us, Ol' Case got a top-row seat under the awning to watch those 'Horns annihilate Incarnate Word. With some no-shows amongst what was supposed to be a sellout crowd, I was hoping to maybe sneak away from my ticketed seat since I was letting so many patrons in or out to go get some concessions or whatnot, and to see if I could get something a little more isolated because of the flaker-outers. How could anyone purchase a ticket and not go see one of the NCAA's best? This year may be seeing the best David Pierce-led team since he took over the program from the late, great Augie Garrido. Texas has a great baseball history, and the championships prove just that. And who's to say that the 'Horns can't do it again?

One month from this writing, this acclaimed C-D user will be back in Austin at the University of Texas (where, by the way, a new basketball arena will be completed for big events and sports), and Disch-Falk Field will once again have me over there with a seat which won't be on the aisle. It'll definitely be crowded, as the opponent will be Baylor. Should be a great battle.

And if you don't like seeing college baseball live and in person, then, well, you just don't like hearing the voice of "Barbecue" Bob Cole in the Disch-Falk public address box with his country-boy style.
