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.

Good reads in the latest Time magazine (while you drink some coffee)

While meeting up with old buddy Lexton Moy at The Coffee Bean in Burgos Circle this afternoon, I picked up a copy of the latest issue of Time Magazine for Php130 (that gets you free coffee). Love the essays by US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan on the New York Knicks' Jeremy Lin, Jeremy Lin on former Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, Ferran Adria on Danish chef Rene Redzepi, Time magazine sports editor Bill Saporito on Novak Djokovic, Admiral Mike Mullen on Barbara van Dahlen, Sarah Jessica Parker on Sarah Burton, US President Barack Obama on Warren Buffet, Katie Couric on Sara Blakely, Jon Meacham on Cardinal Timothy Dolan, and Mia Hamm on Lionel Messi.
