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.

Tiras Wade sacked; TNT to play All-Filipino vs Ginebra

Talk 'n Text import Tiras Wade was sent packing last night after a most shameful outburst during their game against league-leading San Miguel Beer.

It actually started two games ago when Wade began to not play well. Against the Beermen, he was scoreless, awful, and lethargic in the first 14 minutes before he was yanked by Coach Chot Reyes. That didn't sit well with the erstwhile likable import who began to complain and cuss. Reyes didn't back down and railed at him. And Wade then took it out on his other teammates which pissed them off all the more. They could have chalked it up to a bad game but after the match Wade even went after the ref.

That was it for team management. They sacked him right away and rightfully so. The team is focused and they all want to win again and damned if they're going to let an angry import torpedo their chances.

TNT will play All-Filipino vs Ginebra in their next game since the replacement isn't in yet.
