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.

Ateneo vs La Salle… in New York
The Ateneo Alumni Northeast Inc is planning an Ateneo & La Salle project that will feature a men’s basketball and a mixed volleyball game that will be one of the activities of a Family Day event. It will be a fundraising event for both sides.

Proposed Dream Games would be sometime in the fall (the target dates are either September 19, 26 or October 3, depending on venue availability.)
· Need male basketball players.
· We also need male and/or female volleyball players
· The criteria that is a player (either basketball or volleyball) must have studied in any of the Ateneo schools in the Philippines (Manila, Naga, Cagayan, San Pablo, Zamboanga, etc…) ..there is no need to have graduated in any of the Ateneo schools. We will take your word that you studied there…there is no need to present a diploma or transcript (or PEP Test results).
· Participants must not varsity-level experience, but must have a competitive spirit and are willing to commit to some practice time.
· At this point there is no age limit, for as long as you are more than 21 years of age.
For now, Ateneo and La Salle has initially agreed to build one team. However, if there are sufficient players for a Juniors and Seniors team, then we will organize it as such.

Interested Ateneans may email Mike Ruivivar at

Former Ateneo Team Managers, Blue Babble Battalion, Ateneo Band, and Cheerdancers are very much invited.
