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 Azkals Pep Rally @SM Megamall & the winner of our Why You Should Win 3 Bleachers Tix to the Philippines-Malaysia match.

One of my good friends on the football national team is Misagh Bahadoran. During today's Pep Rally (Yep, I suggested that activity after the Icheon Citizen match) at SM Megamall, the Fil-Iranian was pleasantly surprised that I wore a "Bahadoran" jersey. We both joked about who is the "real Misagh". Hahaha. Who is it anyways?

And we had a contest on Bleachers' Brew last night where I was giving away three (3) bleachers tickets to the Philippines-Malaysia match on Wednesday, February 29. I asked readers to write a paragraph on why they should win the tickets and the best one wins all three. And here's our winner........ tada.....

Edmon Pineda of Tarlac: I badly want those tickets not for me but for my brother. His name is Eldridge. He wants to call himself Neil Eldridge! Hahaha! I can see the pain he suffers when our team loses. The joy that he feels in every Azkals goal is indescribable. We hugged each other and jump for joy and with tears streaming down our eyes. He always tells me that he wants to watch an Azkals game but tickets are quite expensive. That’s why I want to win those tickets!"
