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.

Pride restored

Reeling from four successive defeats, Liverpool arrested its worst skid in years, and what better what to get back on track by hammering Manchester United 2-nil in Anfield. The win reasserts their two year mastery over their long-time rivals and puts them at 5th place in the English Premier League Standings. After misfiring on early chances, Fernando Torres broke the ice and put the pressure on the Red Devils with a strike after ditching Rio Ferdinand. David Ngog scored in injury time with both squads reduced to 10 men after Nmenja Vidic was sent off again (versus LFC I might add) for United and Javier Mascherano for the Reds. Now, let's see if Rafa Benitez' boys use this as a springboard to rattle off some huge wins. The pic shows LFC keeper Pepe Reina jumping into Ngog's arms after the killer goal. YNWA!
Congrats to Ato Agustin and the San Sebastian Stags for winning the NCAA crown against a really tough San Beda squad. Nice chatting with former player Rommel Adducul who showed up to show some support for his alma mater. This squad will only lose Jimbo Aquino who should have been this year's league MVP were it not for his suspension after punching the Red Lions' Jake Pascual. Well, losing Aquino will be a lot but they still have a potent crew and some players on Team B ready to step up. (photo by the Philippine Star's Joey Mendoza)
