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,

Baseball's True Stories: You Can't Make These Up

Posted 05-30-2022 at 12:05 PM by case44


Two exciting and ironic baseball plays have occurred so far in the year 2022. I swear, you can't make this stuff up; it's too good.

On April 7, Seth Beer of the Arizona Diamondbacks smacked a game-winning, walk-off home run to propel his team to victory, 4-2, over the San Diego Padres in Phoenix. And here's the irony: That day was National Beer Day.

Fast-forward to May 28, where Jake Burger belts a solo homer in the fifth inning for the Chicago White Sox against the Chicago Cubs. Unfortunately, it turned out to be their only score as the Sox would lose, 5-1. And the irony behind that? Saturday, May 28, just happened to be National Burger Day. It would have been sweeter had the Sox won and the homer meant more.

Really, folks, you can't make this stuff up.
