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.

"Wala" lang

This picture of a couple of media friends and myself was taken by Jan Dizon. This was during the San Beda-Letran match last week at the San Juan Arena that was a yawner of boring proportions. We were dissing one of the most stupid cheers or jeers ever known to man -- that cheer of "wala" when an opposing team attempts a free throw. Walang kabisa-bisa yung bwisit na jeer na yan. Wala lang. O di ba?

  1. That had happened to me on a live game of Letran and Mapua and also Letran and San Beda during one of the live games of the NCAA Season 91... Man, I really hate these kind of fans! The cheering of "Wala" or "Boo!" is very unnecessary! Nakaka-sira ng experience, lalo na ako ay introvert... Sana hindi na lang sila sumigaw ng ganun! :/
