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.

10 played 26 points. We're on top, lads!

What a nervy win by Liverpool over Portsmouth 1-nil. They followed up a magnificent win at Stamford Bridge with another clear winner over a spirited Pompey side that featured old mates Peter Crouch and David James. Liverpool needed this win as Chelsea mercilessly hammered Hull 3-0 to stay in solo second while knocking down the Tigers by three points in the standings.

LFC skipper Steven Gerrard punched through with a spot kick on the 75th minute his first in the EPL this season.

Robbie Keane came in for the captain in injury time and almost scored. Hey, Robbie. You gotta do more or else you'll go the way of Nick Barmby!

Tottenham is up this weekend!
