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.

What it is!

When I first saw the mascots of the 2012 London Olympics -- Wenlock and Mandeville -- I thought of Dr. Seuss. Upon even more scrutiny, I thought that they were mutant freaks (ET go home). But whether they are cuddly or not or will make great stuffed toys or what, should we be surprised since this is the country that brought us Dr. Who and those insufferable Daleks.
