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.

Team Ateneo -- the Launch

Running a varsity sports program needs money. And while the Ateneo Men's Basketball Team has been the beneficiary of MVP's generous support, the team still needs help. There's the need to address scholarships, dorm fees, and other operating expenses.

In fact, the Lady Eagles and Blue Eaglets teams have also asked for financial assistance! Man, it's a tough world out there.

This June 21, 2008, every Atenean out is is invited to attend and participate in Team Ateneo: the Launch. It will be held at the NBC Tent at the Fort and the program will be hosted by Gabe Mercado and SPIT. The band 8 Track will provide the music.

Tickets are priced at Php 3,500 (this is a fund-raiser and buyers are entitled to dinner, giveaways, and raffle stubs) and this event will serve as the kick-off to the ADMU Cheer Rally that will precede the opening of Season 71.

The new Ateneo team wear will also be unveiled that evening! So if you want to meet the players and see what's going on, circle June 21 in blue!

One Big Fight!
