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.

The Return of SMART Gilas

Caught up with Coach Rajko Toroman at the UAAP games. With UP writer Eddie Ching.

You want to see SMART Gilas in action? They will join the PBA as a guest team for the All-Filipino Conference with CJ Giles. They could be joined by three more players: Junmar Fajardo, Paul Lee, and Rabeh Al-Hussaini. But any talks with Al-Hussaini will have to come after the UAAP season is done.
Imbalance in the PBA? Nope. Heard Red Bull is folding with the players going to a dispersal draft. What a waste of a franchise.
In about two weeks, you'll be reading more about the Gilas team here and in Business Mirror.
