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.

Positively giddy that the New York Islanders defeated the Boston Bruins

Massive 3-2 win over the Boston Bruins to snap that two-match losing streak. What makes it even cooler is that it's at Boston. And the win vaults the New York Islanders to the top of the Metropolitan Division of the Eastern Conference of the NHL. Yes, the season is young but you take your kicks where you can.

Thinking of going to the US next year to catch the last Islanders-Rangers match at the old Nassau Coliseum. Last time I was there, the Isles squeaked past the Edmonton Oilers, 3-2. 10 years ago!
