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.

Football at the 16th University Games in Roxas City

MONDAY UNI-GAMES FOOTBALL. Villareal Stadium, Roxas City --  After Ateneo's freshman Mikko Mabanag scored on a spectacular corner kick to give the Blue Eagles a 1-nil lead, Dipolog Medical Center College came back in the second half to score two goals to win 2-1. In the picture above, DMCC winger Bryan Gumela scored on a penalty that leveled the match. Renando Mantua scored late in the second half to win the match.

Over at the women's side, De La Salle University destroyed Foundation University 5-0. The rains over the past three days reduced the fields to a muddy patch of earth. While there was some element of skill, a lot of luck and defensive lapses produced goals. It wasn't really fun to watch.
