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.

And the season isn't halfway done

Geez, Real Madrid loses three of its last four games (while Barcelona is only three points up on the two-time Spanish League champs) and people are calling for Bernd Schuster's head. Hey, they've only played 11 games thus far and in case anyone has been watching Los Blancos, they are without Ruud Van Nistelrooy who is most likely out for the season and Robinho who is in oblivion with Manchester City.

This is one club that has seen managers come and go and usually after a year's worth of service n the sidelines. It's prestigious to be the head gaffer for this club but like any other big program, you get hired to get fired. Let those dman people in media coach this team and if they can win a match or two then elevate them.
