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.

Pacquiao-Barrera II

Nike Philippines officially unveiled today the Nike-Manny Pacquiao identity mark and crest in support of the national athlete’s fight against Mexico’s Marco Antonio Barrera this coming October.

“Manny Pacquiao is the first Filipino athlete to ever have an official Nike identity mark and crest developed after his iconic stature,” explained Nike Philippines Country Marketing Manager Melissa Crucillo.

“Pacquiao is the embodiment of the Philippine dream. When he steps on the ring, he does not only defend his title as a boxer. He also brings with him the aspirations of the entire nation. Nike understands this and is honored to support Manny with this specially designed identity mark and crest, which every Filipino can use to show their support for our national athlete” Crucillo added.

Go, Manny!
