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 Twin Killing

Twin brothers Bob and Mike Bryan, who will both turn 30 this month, made their debut for the U.S. Davis Cup team in late 2003 when captain Patrick McEnroe overcame his reluctance to select them and thereby leave himself without a true singles replacement.

They've more than vindicated his decision since then, giving the team its first solid pairing since John McEnroe and Peter Fleming's run in the late 1970s and early '80s, and have made the doubles point in the best-of-five competitions almost automatic.

They're currently 14-1 and figure they can keep it going. You gotta see these guys cause they're plenty fun to watch.
