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.

Thanks, Johnny & Norm!

It's hard to be a Chicago Bulls fan right now. They suck and seem to have no direction. They traded away my favorite player (Andres Nocioni) and will probably let go of my second fave it Kirk Hinrich.

Then they lose Johnny "Red" Kerr and Norm Van Lier both within days of each other to the basketball court in the sky.

The only good news this year is that Michael Jordan is going to the Basketball Hall of Fame.
