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.

Football News

Word is Peter Crouch will leave Liverpool for either Aston Villa or Manchester City this coming January 2008. He simply will not thrive in Rafa Benitez' platoon system. It's lost on Bentiez that in 23 caps for crouch, he has scored 13 times and in those matches, England won every one of them. I thought in the last UEFA Champions League finals rematch with AC Milan, Benitez brought him in too late to make an impact. I'd love to see Crouchy finish his career with the Reds, but if it's going to be the best for his career, then I wish him the best.

But it's gonna be tough seeing him in another kit. Just ike it it with Robbie Fowler.

On the other hands, after this season, it is expected that Sir Alex Ferguson will be moved to a front office job with manchester United while... Jose Mourinho will replace him as chief gaffer. Hokey Smokes, Didier! What are you gonna say now?

The launch for the new Predator football shoe went well in London. We'll try to get pix of that.

Support the candidacy of Ed Formoso for Philippine Football Federation President! This guy's heart is in the right place. When the Azkals' games in the ASEAN Cup Qualifiers were shown on Solar Sports, it was Ed who personally raised the money needed for the games to be shown. No BS with this, dude. He'll help get football in this country off the ground.
