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.

RIP Ralph Houk

Major's gone, Yankee brothers. Sound them mournful Taps for Father Sky as he joins Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Elston Howard, Clete Boyer, and Johnny Blanchard in the diamond in the sky. Sad sad last 10 days for the men in pinstripes but we'll honor them with #28.
