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.

Thanks for playing for the Yankees, Tex!

Have always been a fan of Mark Teixeira even when he was playing for the Texas Rangers. I was ecstatic when he came to the Yankees in 2009 that became one of my fave pin-striped squads (they also had Nick Swisher who is one of my faves, CC Sabathia, and AJ Burnett). That incredible season ended with a World Series title. And it was a nerve-wracking battle with Philly for the championship.
