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.

Battle of the Networks

The latest salvo in the ongoing war between Solar Sports and ABS-CBN was fired when the Lopez station was able to pry away UFC away from its cable rival. It seems that ABS-CBN offered free TV air time (aside from cable viewing) for the UFC fights and Dana White's folks never bothered to talk to Solar after that. Well, Solar I am told was upset only for a bit and then they were like, "It's okay. Not that big of a loss anyway."

So we'll see.

But we'll feature a history of that long-brewing war sometime before the old year.
