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.

As far as issues go the latest Sports Illustrated is one of the best

I thought I'd find this in Kinokuniya in Singapore but it was either sold out or unavailable (methinks it's the former). By chance, I was able to get a copy at Changi Airport on my way home and it was the last copy. Lee Jenkins' story on LeBron James and the Heat was a very good one. And reading Jack McCallum's feature on the mythical Dream Team intra-squad scrimmage was worth the cover price alone.
