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,

Verne Lundquist's Last Hurrah: The 2024 Masters

Posted 04-12-2024 at 09:48 AM by case44


He's got a long history in sportscasting. Through the years, he'd made so many memorable calls in events ranging from college basketball, college football, and pro golf.

And this year, even though he had already retired from the regular grind on CBS Sports, Verne Lundquist will be making the call from the 16th hole at Augusta National for the 2024 Masters. It will be his last, and after that, he retires for good.

What a career Verne Lundquist has had. Forty years at CBS. Prior to that, he did sports in my hometown of Dallas at WFAA-TV (Channel 8, ABC) for sixteen years, and that followed a stint at KTBC-TV (Channel 7, then a CBS station) in Austin. I'd always refer to him as the laughing sportscaster, because he seemed to do that a lot on television.

Verne, thanks so much for so many great memories. I'll be watching The Masters as I always do, and come next year (assuming America will still be a constitutional republic), the 16th hole will never be the same.
