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.

Lin's everywhere. Except that he did turn down GQ.

Good article by Sean Gregory. What I love here is the Christian Nerd High Five. Wrote Gregory, "Asian Americans can tell when the competition isn't taking them seriously. They hope that Lin can correct such ethnic slights."

Back to back cover stories in Sports Illustrated? Who has done that aside from Michael Jordan? But content, man. Content. The latest issue is better though.

The Miami Heat shut Lin down today and he was held to career lows. You know what this reminds me of -- the 1992 Barcelona Olympics when Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen shut down Croatia's Toni Kukoc. I think Lin will be just fine once he gets used to all of this. He'll figure it out.
