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.

Foot in mouth disease

Last Saturday, one local football official graced the opening of a football clinic at the Manila Polo Club and he told the assembled kids and parents that we have a respected grassroots program in the Philippines and that he is working on bringing in a major tournament here in the Philippines. Some parents laughed coz they know the score about this guy.

What I want to know is what this guy is smoking and does he know that talk is cheap?

What have we done to deserve this?

This just in: no word on the financials promised during the Bribe Session of the PFF Congress. So what else is new? No word of honor. Pass the bullshit please.
