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.

The agony of defeat; Toronto Maple Leafs fans video after that Game 7 loss to the Boston Bruins

A sporting event sees a fan run the gamut of emotions from being ecstatic to see knots of worry and concern form on his brow. During a championship game, the broadcasting crew will alternate between shots of the winning and losing team. Sometimes, it's the fans. 

Check this one homemade vid of Toronto Maple Leafs fans watching a heart wrenching Game & loss to the Boston Bruins. I may be a New York Islanders fan (so far removed from the glory years of the 1980s) so I can totally identify with that numbing feeling of a loss. 

To the dude that did this video, thanks for this and good luck to your Maple Leafs next season.
