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.

On that England-France friendly

French manager Raymond Domenech will have to be content with his side's performance. Sure Les Bleus won 1-0, but they were on the defense for a bit as they were missing some superb goal scorers in Thierry Henry and Karim Benzema and Patrick Viera. The Three Lions on the other hand had their full complement of stars as captained by the versatile Rio Ferdinand.

The French win spoiled David Beckham's 100th cap and saw them win their first in the last four matches. England is 1-1 so far under Capello, but they still have yet to win anything meaningful.
