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.

Who's goal was more difficult -- Bobby Zamora's or Xherdan Shaqiri's?

Both similar goals -- Bobby Zamora's chip goal versus West Bromwhich Albion for a 3-nil Queens Park Rangers lead and Xherdan Shaqiri's exquisite boot against Everton -- but which one was more difficult if not impressive?

Zamora was close to the edge of the box while Shaqiri was closer to the middle. While Zamora is left-footed, he managed to get the shot off against defender Joleon Lescott from the right wing. Shaqiri is left-footed as well but I think was in a better position for that goal. 

Regardless, both were spectacular.
