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.

Tuesday Morning Zingers

The French side Arsenal dispatched Fenerbahce with the greatest of ease 5-2. Six Gunners scored: Emmanuel Adebayor, Theo Walcott, Mikael Silvestre, Abou Diaby, Alexandre Song Billong, and Aaron Ramsey. Hmm. So why is the score 5-2 and not 6-2? French internationalist Silvestre scored an own goal. Daniel Guiza who followed Fenerbahce manager Luis Arangones to Turkey scored for the home team which played sloppy football.

Ateneo could have made it another sweep but we lost the PRADA Finals last saturday to LSGH 76-66.

And take a gander at this.... the revenge of the referee! And the ref flipping Maierhofer the bird was the start of it. Last october 20, in a game between South Carolina and LSU, SC Gamecocks QB Stephen Garcia roled to his left and headed for the end zone in the second quarter when he colided with referee Wilbur Hakcett Jr. at the 5-yard line. Said SC's coach Steve Spurrier said that Hackett did nothing wrong. "He was trying to get out of the way," said the coach.

But isn't the ref a part of the game? Like the turf or the uprights? So does that mean now we get to run them over?

Incidentally, Hackett is a former linebacker at the University of Kentucky. That sort of explains things.
