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.

My Keisuke Honda Japan National Football Team jersey

Finally! I got my Keisuke Honda Japan National Team jersey from adidas. I also wanted to get a Shinji Kagawa but it was just too expensive. I was kind of lucky too as this was the last one at Soccer Shop Kamo in Tokyo. Have always wanted to get a Blue Samurai shirt. It adds to my collection of football shirts of which I have about 100. 

This is the first time that I have bought a kit that came inside a box. I almost didn't want to open the box as a result. As you can see from the photo, adidas came up with a cool and awesome kit.
