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.

Monday Morning zingers

What did I say about this weekend being crucial for the Dallas Cowboys? Well, they lost to the Arizona Cardinals 30-24 in overtime. There was something wrong the moment JJ Arrington returned a kickoff for a touchdown to put Arizona on top 6-0 with the game only mere moments old. Now the finger pointing begins.

The English Premier League's 39th game proposal could yet be revived after Asian Football Confederation president Mohamed bin Hammam, one of the fiercest critics of the controversial suggestion, altered his stance on the matter and called on the league to ''share the secrets of their success.''

In February the Premier League floated the idea of an international round of matches in five cities across the world from 2011 but were forced to shelve the plans amid widespread condemnation from fans and various sporting authorities, including FIFA and Bin Hammam's AFC.

If they play in Hong Kong I'm going. Liverpool.................

For the Blue Eagle contingent to the Uni-Games, it will be the rookies and third string players of Team A with a sprinkling of Team B. Guess who's going to join the team for practice on Wednesday. Hoooo yeah!
