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.

Bringing it home

The World Boxing Council Super Featherweight title is coming back home to the Philippines. In a split decision, Manny Pacquiao won the belt from Juan Manuel Marquez that was last worn by Rolando Navarette, who like Pacman, hails from General Santos City.

Rene Barrientos and Gabriel "Flash" Elorde also once ruled the division with the latter defending it for seven years!

Who's next? David Diaz in June in Las Vegas.
