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.

Hoops Tidbits

1) Last Sunday Ateneo beat DLSZ in the SBP semis (57-51 if I am not mistaken). It was a good game with the moms and the dads getting into the cheering like any old good match between the rivals until the end game.

Apparently, one father of the Zobel players felt "threatened" by the Ateneo lads raising their fists and singing the alma mater that he hit one of the boys. The dad of the Ateneo kid rushed in to hit the erring father (talk about being politically correct here) and in the scuffle accidentally hit one of the La Salle moms trying to protect the culprit.

There are reports of suits to follow.

Win at all costs. Lose with no shame.

2) Last Tuesday, the various UP coaches hosted an inuman session for coach Joe -- no, Callanta, Barbers, and Jorge weren't invited at Backdoor. Sobrang dami nagpunta. Sorry I wasn't able to go. But coming up... a no-holds barred interview with Coach Joe in the Biz Mirror.

3) Adamson students have been trying to get tickets to today's Ateneo-La Salle game (some were even inquiring at ADMU yesterday). I think that's cool that many others are interested in watching this as well. Hopefully Adamson and the others can rebound next season.
