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!

Finding The Right Shirt For The Big Man Is Like Finding A Needle In A Haystack

This buzz-haired Texas critter had one more vacation day to take, and so, he mixed it into a three-day weekend. It was time again to hit the road, this time to Southeast Texas. Besides great Houston food at area restaurants, your writer had to make his quest to get one, possibly two, Astros World Series champion shirts.

Here's the catch, however: The T-shirts must be a size 3XT.

In looking at area sporting goods stores and the Astros Team Store, Ol' Case saw many shirts in many sizes. Problem? Certainly. All of them were kiddie size to 2XL. That's it. Nothing larger than 2XL. No big and tall shirts. Anywhere.

Now, I didn't go to every single store, mind you, but I had to come to a consensus based on what was available. They either sold out of the big shirts or there were just none in stock and were waiting for more. Whichever the case, it's either too early or too late. No matter. There were still some items from the 2017 championship year that were on sale, but I needed memorabilia from this year. Talk about a needle in a haystack; well, that was your writer, trying to get a size-3XT T-shirt. That cannot be too much to ask now, can it?

Perhaps, your writer can head back in a few more months for another visit, and maybe even take up a game at Minute Maid Park. In the meantime, I did come away with a World Champions 2022 ball cap. Better than nothing. And I also got an Astros wall decor board to nail onto my wall in the living room. For now, anything's better than nothing.

    That does seem odd that big and tall shirts can't be found any more so than kids'. Hope you can find what you're looking for. Ever think about Amazon?
