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.

Top of the World


Not soon after Kevin Garnett was traded to the Boston Celtics, one person emailed the Boston Globe and said, "The Celtics ought to retire Kevin McHale's number again." McHale had just traded to Boston the greatest player in Minnesota history and one of the greatest in NBA history. Wrote Tom Powers of the St. Paul Pioneer Press (in Minnesota), "The sun will come up again tomorrow. Unless, of course, Kevin McHale is somehow put in charge of the solar system. In which case the sun will implode and we... will all die."

The Black Hole of Boston should be given his fourth championship ring.
