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.

Here's to winning a beach volleyball crown before you graduate

(picture: the Ateneo Lady Spikers on right side go on the attack)

Just wanted to say congrats to Asia Urquico and Sharah So for finishing second in the third leg of the 2009 Petron Ladies’ Beach Volleyball Tournament in Purok Marcela, Lingayen.

The Ateneo duo finished second to the DLSU-Dasmariñas Lady Patriots duo of April Almaden and Jennifer Manzano 21-7, 21-6.

Urquico and So made up for their opening match loss to the eventual champions by winning their next three matches. The Ateneo Lady Spikers repulsed Lady Patriots Wensh Tiu and Regina Tungol, 21-18, 18-21, 15-13.

Almaden and Manzano in the meantime earned a slot to the finals when they hurdled University of the Philippines spikers Amanda Christine Isada and Lorraine Chua, 21-4, 21-9, 17-15, in the crossover semifinals.
