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.

How can you not root for this guy?

He was a star in the waiting even when Thierry Henry was still with the Gunners. I knew that in spite of the Frenchman's departure there would be no drop off more so since they have a talented team. Now that the offense is a little more spread out, Cesc Fabregas has emerged as a scoring force. They tied Liverpool, but how can you not feel for the Gunners? They played with more flair and heart (which is more than I can say about the Reds). They just never gave up and got the badly needed equalizer to send them back to the top of the EPL standings.
