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.

Thursday Sports Zingers

FIFA suspended the Iraqi Football Association because of constant government meddling into the national team’s affairs. Hey, Sepp Blatter, but you conveniently turned a blind eye when Asian Football Confederation’s Mohammed Bin Hammam when he bribed regional NSAs to prolong his stay in power?

If you look at the PFF office at the corner of Capt Henry Javier and Danny Floro Street in Pasig (in motel alley), there’s an outpost at that corner right in front of the football headquarters. The logo right in front of the outpost? Victoria Court with the lady holding up a finger to her lips. That’s right. Quiet lang sa kalokohan sa loob nito.

If Thierry Henry was remorseful about his deliberate handball that led to the equalizer by France against Ireland, then why was he celebrating after William Gallas scored? The proper thing to do would have been to replay the match. But then again, they’ve allowed Diego Maradona’s handball to stand since forever.

Allen Iverson retired. But he says he can still play at the highest level. That’s his answer. Next.

Why is the Bureau of Internal Revenue going to tax Manny Pacquiao? He is already being taxed in the US then he is going to lose more to the thieves in our government? Can someone explain to me why this is so? Sorry. I don’t know anything about this. On a non-related note but still on our corrupt government, I have a neighbor who works as a security person at NAIA Customs and he drives a Mercedes SUV and he recently has his house remodeled (it includes a Jacuzzi). He is thinking of buying a BMW next. How do I know? He told me.
