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.

Monday Morning Zingers

Rick DiPietro is back to his netminding chores for the New York Islanders. Unfortunately, they still can't buy a win.

Liverpool beat Wigan 3-2 thanks to another late goal by Dirk Kuyt. They're at second place in the English Premier League with 20 points after eight matches only because of a goal difference to Chelsea.

Hull continued its amazing run in the first division as they beat West Ham 1-0 to stay in 3rd place.

Lazio is now in 5rd place in the Italian Serie A as Inter Milan claimed the top once more.

Now what did I say about Dallas? They are in a world of shit right now. They started out with four straight wins and even as Tony Romo went down with an injury, the chinks in their armor have been exposed. The Romo-less Cowboys were throttled by the St. Louis Rams 34-14. Slip sliding away.

The New York Giants got back on track by beating the San Francisco 49ers 29-17 in a sloppy game on the road.
