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.

Sideline Slants II

Andriy Shevchenko is back with the Rossoneri after two wasted years at Stamford Bridge. But even in his departure from the English Premier League, Sheva had only good words to say about his time with Chelsea. That's classy, dude.

The New York Yankees' three-game series with the Boston Red Sox will determine if they could avail of a wild card berth in the American League play-offs. If they get knocked out, the streak that began with Buck Showalter and continued magnificently with Joe Torre will come to an end. The Bombers should make their move against Boston which will not have Daisuke Matsuzaka and Josh Beckett.

Doesn't this remind you of something?

A disgruntled Yankees fan sent NY GM Brian Cashman a pointed email that said, "he was no (Bosox GM) Theo Epstein." Doesn't that remind you of those idiot alumni who are constantly on Norman Black's back? Like that jerk during the UST game who after the Tigers took a lead in the fourth, jumped up and said aloud for all to hear that the team has no heart. But after we won the game, he was cheering the loudest. Someone send this fucker back to the 1950's.

The Philippines will bid for the right to host the FIBA Asia qualifiers this coming 2011. Wow. Here's hoping we get the job done on the court and off it. How many good venues do we have anyway? Thanks for the call, Mr. Noli Eala. See ya next week.
