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.

Wow x 3

August 25, 2011. The New York Yankees hit three grand slams in one game for the first time in Major League Baseball history in a 22-9 win over the Oakland A's at Yankee Stadium. Robinson Cano, Russell Martin, and Curtis Granderson all belted the home runs in a spectacular display of slugging. And the cool thing is... Jorge Posada got to play... at second base.

Who said my career is over?
