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.

A great sports read...

I picked up this book at Kinokuniya at the Siam Paragon Mall in Bangkok. A great read that bridges Gerard Houllier's last year and Rafael Benitez' spectacular first season with the Reds. Expertly written and a must for all football fans. I just bought a few reading materials; this and two magazines. Spanish expat, Balague who lived in Liverpool for quite some time has the inside story of that most memorable campaign that culminated with a Champions League victory over AC Milan (of course, Milan returned the favor this year in Athens).

I am somewhere in the first 75 pages and will post an interesting excerpt on the "coincidences" and signs of a Liverpool victory tomorrow.
