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.

Younghusband brothers, Azkals, not Nepal put on a show

Younghusband brothers, Azkals, not Nepal put on a show
by rick olivares

Phil and James Younghusband turned the international friendly between the Philippines and Nepal into their own personal showcase during an emphatic 4-0 win at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium last October 11, 2011 that closed the Azkals’ 2011 campaign.

Phil scored a brace (’17 & ’55) while James (’29) barged into the score sheet with a cracking volley to put the visiting Gorkhalis, as the Nepalese team is nicknamed, in a deep 3-nil hole. And for good measure to show critics that he can pass the ball some, Phil latched on to a Dennis Cagara cross in the 89th minute before setting up a trailing Matthew Hartmann who could do no wrong with his scorcher of a goal.
