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.

The Back Four Bums talk about the 2012 UFL season

Here are the Bums talking about the CFIM game with the Azkals-UFL Alyansa and Air Force as well as the 2012 UFL season.

 Back Four Bums #5 by rickyolivares

These are some of the points for discussion:

1. With all the teams loading up on Fil-fors and African players, what does this mean for Air Force and the other military teams?
2. Global has arguably been the second best club in the country in the past two years. Can they get over the hump and top the league?
3. The Younghusbands have led their teams to the finals of every tournament they have played so far yet have come up short. Will they lead Loyola to the Promised Land this year?
4. Of the three teams that were promoted from Division II – Nomads, Stallion, and Pasargad, who will make the most impact in Division I?
5. Which player will make the strongest impact this year in Division I?
6. Which team will most likely be relegated to Division II and why?
7. Which team will most likely be promoted to Division I?
8. What improvements would you like to see in the UFL?
