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.

UM Coach - Someone should slap this loser around

Video and text courtesy of Mhel Garrido. The University of Manila Hawks won the first 5 NAASCU titles (2001-2005). In 2006, they lost in the semis while AMA went on to win the cage crown. The Hawks, the alma mater of former pro Nelson Asaytono, went back to the finals where they were defeated by the STI Olympians.

This was taken during a timeout of the championship game of the 7th NAASCU. Just look at how the Coach of University of Manila (Ato Tolentino) strikes fear in his players by hitting them. Wawa naman.

The NAASCU Champions STI. With my longtime friend Mhel Garrido -- we go back to those ASSOC days in college. Congrats! See you in the Collegiate Champions League this November!

Yup, the CCL will be moved to November and will be jointly handled by Mr. Rey Gamboa and FilOil (as represented by former ADMU & DLSU coach Virgil Villavicencio and former Blue Eagle Dave Dualan). The games will be shown on Basketball TV where one of my good friends, Rely San Agustin is the Marketing Manager.
