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 Nike dry-fit shirt first modelled by Alonzo Mourning is still as good 20 years later

It was around 1993 or 1994 when Nike first came out with this dry-fit shirt that was modelled by Alonzo Mourning when he was still with Charlotte. I don't think I have worn anything of this sort since from Nike. Some 20 years later, the shirt is just as good as it was when I first bought it. It's amazing how it's still of top notch quality even years later. They don't make anything this good and that lasts as long today.
