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.

The Waiting (With apologies to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers)

1. It's in the works -- hush hush they say -- a Nike commercial featuring LeBron James and Maria Sharapova.
2. The new Yankee Stadium -- I'm sure they'll be raising ticket prices. But I'll be there when it opens, bubba!
3. If the Texas Rangers paid Alex Rodriguez $252 million my guess is the Yankees will break the bank when they attempt to re-sign him.
4. So it comes down to Don Mattingly and Joe Girardi. As much as I like Donnie Baseball, I wonder if the Yanks' need a kick in the pants with Girardi. The problem is, he played with a few of these guys. Will they respect him? A few were called up from Triple A in '95 to play in Donnie's last year, but that doesn't count. He was -- along with Dave Winfield -- the team icon during the 80's.
5. Do the Chicago Bulls finally trade for Kobe Bryant. It's a tantalizing offer, but the Lakers are asking for too much. But think about it?
