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.

A sign of a new venue to come?

During the opening ceremony of NCAA Season 86, a globosphere came down from the rafters as part of the program. There was a symbolism that wasn't lost on me so I snapped a pic. I thought of a similar yet larger version of that stands just outside the Mall of Asia. Now there's a new facility that is being built around the area and it is reportedly said to be a sporting and concert venue of larger proportions. So I really can't wait to see the college leagues move there. Away from the shabby treatment elsewhere. Hahaha. What a symbol.
