Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

Friday Extra Points

The New York Yankees took a crucial three-game series from the Boston Red Sox and now the Tampa Bay Devil Rays are up.

Boston is 80-54. NYY 75-59. Joba Chamberlain was suspended for two games for pitching headhunters twice to Kevin Youklis. Yo, Joba what was up with that? Probably the most colorful regular season in the Big Apple since 2001. Earlier in the season I called for a managerial change, but you have to hand it to Joe Torre. He is every bit as much the reason for the turnaround as much as A-Rod, Wang (the ace of the club the last three years), and Pettitte. Hope they can catch the Red Sox for the division title. Muy amigo, Paul Ruzik might be upset at that though. Hahaha.

James Blake barely made it to the next round. Whew!

David Beckham injured his knee and is probably out for the season. The LA Galaxy lost the Superliga Cup to Pachuca (it's their what -- fourth title this year?) on PKs 4-3. That means he's done too for England for the rest of the Euro 2008 qualifiers.

If the video of Kirk's shot looked bitin, sorry coz I stood up to celebrate. Hard to write, take down notes, shoot the game, and cheer at the same time. Will get more interviews for the next few games.

Working on a long Pilipinas baseball story and will begin working on a story on Philippine football soon. Meeting up with the clubs teams and a few national players next week.

Go Blue!
