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.

One more round

As valiant as the Denver Nuggets were, the Los Angeles Lakers showed their championship mettle as they totally outplayed their Midwest foe in Game 5 to advance to their 30th NBA Finals' appearance. Had Denver won Game 1 then it might have been a different story. But that's what it is all about... dodging bullets and surviving. It's win or go home, right?

It would have been cool to see LeBron James (if the Cavs do advance) go against Carmelo in the Finals. Oh well...

Now for ring #10 by Phil Jackson.
