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.

Ranking Footloacker's 2014 Week of Greatness ads & why I love them!

Loving the 2014 Footlocker ads! I ranked them in terms of my favorites and here are the results:

1. Derrick Rose and Tim Duncan in "Excited". Watch The Big Fundamental knocked down a plant in excitement. Who said you cannot have fun while being boring? Five NBA titles and he's entitled to that.

2. John Cena tells a fan in a veiled reference to pro wrestling to "suspend his disbelief" and that "IT's REAL!"

3. James Harden pokes fun at his lack of defense in this hilarious advert titled "Defensive".

4. I love this coz Manny Pacquiao believes that the fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr.  -- well, "IT's HAPPENING!" What makes this even more cool is the Black Mamba trainign t-shirt he is wearing. That should give Kobe Bryant an extra boost now that the Los Angeles Lakers have won two straight.
