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.

A poignant moment following the Denver-Baltimore game

This is a real classy moment. Some time after the Baltimore Ravens defeated the Denver Broncos with a field goal in overtime, Peyton Manning patiently waited for Ray Lewis outside the locker room for a conversation. It must have been difficult for Manning after such a disheartening defeat. Then there was that Joe Flacco pass that led to a touchdown to send the game into overtime. That was followed by that field goal to end what has been a great season for Denver. But perhaps its most poignant moment was the one where two American Football greats shared a moment before one went on to play another day while another is left to ponder a crucial interception and unfinished business.
