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.

Stuff I got at Bootcamp (new kicks to wear for my team GroupM United)

Ah, all this talk of a comeback is taking a hit in my wallet and my knees. Got some turf shoes (below), shin guards, socks, and shorts at Bootcamp. That means I'll be a walking Nike billboard tomorrow. Hahaha. Will do a product review on the Nike Mercurial (I wear size 12) after tomorrow's practice. Hope my body's up to it. 

Re-stock at Bootcamp -- Euro away jerseys of Portugal, France, the Netherlands, Russia, and a few more. Personally, I am not crazy about the home kit of France as I think it is somewhat terrible so I'm all right with the white version. 

Don't you just love the Portugal shirt (above)? Sort of reminds me of Brazil's Vasco da Gama. I should get a Vasco shirt soon.

Check out my feature on Bootcamp that came out a while back.
