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.

At the Stadium Sports Lounge at Davao City

Friday, April 29, 2011. We had lunch at Stadium Sports Lounge in Davao City. The Azkals previously had some meals here when they trained in Davao for 10 days prior to tournament in Taiwan. Much of the football decor here in Manchester United so you know that I had a fit. Hahaha. 

In the picture above, I am with the sports lounge owner and Davao FA General Secretary Erwin Protacio. 

In if you want to know the clubs we root for here they are: Dan Palami (Liverpool), Chieffy Caligdong (Liverpool), Red Avelino (Barcelona), Ric Becite (Manchester United), Ian Araneta (Manchester United), Nestor Margarse (Chelsea), Paolo Pascual (Manchester United), Roel Gener (Barcelona), Yanti Bersales (Real Madrid), team PT Wally Javier (Barcelona), team PT Josef Malinay (Real Madrid).

As for the Azkals not present, Chris Greatwich roots for Tottenham, Phil Younghusband roots for Manchester United, and before he joined Fulham, Neil Etheridge rooted for Liverpool.
