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.

Everton's Marouane Fellaini & Sevilla FC sign with Warrior

Belgium and Everton star Marouane Fellaini recently signed with Warrior and will be the first ever footballer to wear the first ever boot from the Michigan-based company. Warriors' first ever boot is called the Skreamer and here are a couple of reviews you might want to check out should you decide to give the shoe a try:  and .

Fellaini was first noticed for his superb play with Belgian side Standard Liege before Everton signed him away. The Mersey-side club is currently at sixth place in the English Premier League and the Belgian has to date in this campaign, eight goals and three assists.

Warrior made him their first individual signee because the company feels he is one of the world's most exciting stars who has flare, who has power, who takes risks, and who eventually changes the game for his side.

Aside from Fellaini, Warriors recently signed Spanish side, Sevilla, currently at 10th in the Spanish League. The Rojiblanocs have in their roster former Arsenal and Real Madrid forward Jose Antonio Reyes (who came off the bench late in the game to inspire Madrid to the 2006 La Liga title) and Alvaro Negredo (another former Madridista who helped Spain win Euro 2012). And the partnership will begin in July of 2013. According to the sports apparel company, they will not only be the official kit supplier but they will also provide training and lifestyle wear for the next five seasons. And this sports company that made their name in lacrosse and hockey is just getting started in world football. Warrior made a huge splash last year when it was announced that the signed their first ever partnership with Liverpool. 

On a personal note, I love the apparel they were able to put up for Liverpool that it has become a huge favorite of mine to the point that I have two jerseys (one to wear and one to keep).
