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.

Amare vs. the Fire Extingusher

This one has spawned a whole new series of jokes. Seriously, that is one fire extinguisher no one, and I repeat, NO ONE, will mess with ever again. You don't think the fire extinguisher is actually a transformer, yes?

UFC fighter Phil Baroni is nicknamed "The New York Bad Ass". Well, Phil. You have to make way for the latest bad ass in the Big Apple -- "The Extinguisher"! I wonder if it's true that Dana White has offered that fire extinguisher a UFC contract.
