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.

Hanging with the Sports Stars

Actually, these guys are nothing more than wax dummies from Madame Tussaud's in Hong Kong. It costs HK$130 per pax along with the round trip Peak Tram ride.






It's not every day I get to block a seven footer, even if it's only a wax dummy. Don't tell the real deal Yao though. He might stuff me through the hoop.












Mouthing off with the Champ.













Isn't that the LA Galaxy and their sucky record up ahead?
