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.

Fire Rafa Benitez!

It's time to fire Rafa Benitez. It's not enough that the owners of Liverpool are to blame but since winning the Champions League in 2005, the club has gone down in performance and in the standings. Let's not even get into his system -- tactical genius, my butt! What we are witnessing is the slow death of the club. Of course there still is a chance to win the EPL and in Europe but how dysfunctional is the team? Blame the Yanks? Rick Parry? Benitez is just full of excuses. Time for a change. Fire Benitez.
