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 for the memories, Sami!


Liverpool beat Tottenham 3-1 to close out their season -- trophy-less I might add -- but with the knowledge that they pushed Manchester United all the way to the Premiership. I'm still blaming their runner-up finish on a poor December and January when all they did was draw matches; that allowed ManU to catch up.

The final game at Anfield this year featured the return of Robbie Keane and he scored too. But what was disappointing was seeing Sami Hyypia, the team's former captain before Steven Gerrard, only brought in so close to full time.

So now there are three left from the Champions League line-up of 2005: Gerrard, Carra, and Xabi.

Thanks, Sami. Good luck in the Bundesliga next year. YNWA!
