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.

A conversation by Juventus and Ronaldo

Ronaldo to Juventus: I'm going to make this club great.
Juventus: Actually, Ronaldo, we have won 34 Serie A championships. Including 7 straight.
Ronaldo: Oh.
Juventus: And we have 13 Coppa Italia, 7 Super Coppa Italiana, 3 UEFA Cups, 2 UEFA Champions League, 2 UEFA Super Cup, 2 Intercontinental Cups, and 1 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup titles.
Ronaldo: That's it?
Juventus: Oh, we have 1 Serie B title when were relegated in 2006 for match fixing.
Ronaldo: Yeah, but you've never had a player who's won 5 Champions League, 5 Ballon D'Or Awards, and a player who has scored as many goals as I have!
