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 Games of Our Lives


The Beijing Olympics was one of the best in a while. From the opening to its closing (Becks, Leona, and Jimmy Page), it was thoroughly enjoyable, creative, and imaginative. Good job, China. Those gymnasts, of course, are something else.
