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.

He could (emphasis on could) have played alongside Andres Iniesta.

Jorge Troiteiro was a teammate of Andres Iniesta with Albacete before they were snapped up into Barcelona's youth system. He was pegged to be a future star for Barca but his family was impatient with chances to move up so they took him out. And now, sadly, he went nowhere and instead toils for lower division teams. This is an amazing goal. Just tune out the crappy music.
