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.

While you're waiting...

Will only start writing the Ateneo-FEU Game 1 story later this afternoon so it will be up by around 7pm. Gotta finish my Monday column for Business Mirror and I have no idea what to write about. Well, I did, but I was so into Game 1 (even before the match) that I couldn't do anything else. Last Friday, while watching the NCAA games, my media colleagues asked me who I thought would win. During the Final Four game versus Adamson, I could see the blowout coming but chose to remain way conservative with the final margin. Against FEU, well, I did say by 10 or at least by 10 and while it was on the money I was still off -- by 13! I think I also posted that in the shoutbox. I'll explain later why I felt that way. Did I expect that? Yep. 

Anyways, why you're all waiting, I'll just throw some humor here (after all, Filipinos do that for every occasion and don't misconstrue this as anything else unless you've got shit for brains) from various folks.

Following Game 1 of the UAAP Finals
Joke #1 
Leo Austria of Adamson: "See it wasn't us! We just ran into a really good team."

Joke #2 
Jason Escueta was the MVP of Game 1

Joke #3
Leila de Lima is being brought in to investigate Game 1's massacre. Word is there was more than one shooter.

Joke #4
Headline the following day: "Major major upset by Ateneo"

And while eating at Jollibee (Recto/Morayta) the other day, I noticed that they have this UAAP promo with the school logos on different tumblers. The ones that were not available (ubos na) were from Ateneo and UP. Go figure.
