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.

Halladay Message


It isn't everyday that you find athletes who know the value of the fans. Former Blue Jays pitcher Roy Halladay spend the bulk of his career with Toronto until he was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies several days ago. And before he left, he took out a full page ad in a Toronto newspaper to thank the fans and the city. I took this picture from a Blue Jays fan. Real cool.
