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.

Much ado about nothing

So Trevor Ariza and Sasha Vujacic got into a spat during their game versus Chicago. So what. Things like that happen to every team and in the course of a season. When in close proximity for a length of time, incidents, spats or disagreements happen. Of course in every team there are the malcontents and backward-walking Indians to borrow a phrase used by Phil Jackson. Now it's up to the coaches and team captains to rein him in.

The quote of the day comes from the New Orleans Hornets' Byron Scott after his team lost to an injury-depleted Sacto Kings squad: "They played harder. That's the bottom line. I told our guys, they are full of themselves if they step on the court and think teams are scared of them."
