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.

Ice Queen

Miki Ando finished third in the Japan National Figure Skating Championships last Sunday but previous to that in the Grand Prix that she won, she secured a spot for the Vancouver Winter Olympics. Mao Asada and Yukari Nakano finished first and second respectively in the Women's Short Program. Go, Miki!
