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 great film that you should watch.

I ordered the DVD of The Two Escobars from Amazon. And this is such a terrific film that will shock and move you. I followed this story in the aftermath of the 1994 World Cup and am so glad that Jeff and Michael Zimbalist have turned into a film. Here's the review of "The Two Escobars" from The Hollywood Reporter. Hope you pick the DVD up. It's money well spent.
