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.

I got faith in Tim Tebow

Some people have a problem with Tim Tebow's game. Some people have a problem with Tebow showing of his religiousness on the field of play. Some people look for problems when there aren't any. But Tim... he tries to solve those problems. Remember that old Nike commercial where baseball greats assess Michael Jordan's fling with baseball and Willie Mays says: "At least he's trying." I feel it's like that. Tim Tebow is trying his best. He's 5-1 since he took over the starting quarterback position for the Denver Broncos. Those same Broncos were 1-4 before he was inserted at the QB slot. Now they are 6-5 a game (after they beat the San Diego Chargers 16-13 in overtime) behind the Oakland Raiders and are in playoff contention. Aaron Rodgers of Green Bay may be the best quarterback in the game but Tebow... you gotta have faith.
