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.

Smart Gilas' imports for the FIBA Champions Cup?

Milan Vucicevic is a 6'10" center from Serbia. The forward-center has played in Poland, Greece, Ukraine, Oman, and Cyprus.
Jared Reiner, a 6'11' center from Iowa was cut from the Philadelphia 76ers this past season. He will meet up with the nationals in Las Vegas.
Reiner and Vucicevic will join the entire complement of Smart Gilas in the upcoming FIBA Champions Challenge Cup in Doha, Qatar. Hopefully these moves pan out for the nationals who have had lots of problems with their candidates for naturalization. Stay tuned for more info.
