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.

Didn't we see something similar locally about a year ago?

The red badge of courage for investigative reporter Andrew Jennings is being banned from all FIFA events. This is a great read and you'll understand the why the things that happen on a global scale also affect us locally. Not to say that this doesn't happen here.

Not sure if this is available locally but you can order this through Fully Booked or Powerbooks (maybe even Amazon). 

Got my copy at Prologue @ Ion Orchard, Singapore (4th level) for $22.50 in paperback. There's one more copy left. None at Kinokuniya, Borders, or Harris.

How's the weather over there, Hammam?

Andrew Jennings also wrote The New Lords of the Rings (about corruption in the International Olympic Committee).
