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.

A statement from Lexton Moy

A statement from Lexton Moy, member, Philippine Men's Football National Team: "This is a heartbreaking misunderstanding. It deeply saddens me that such a misinterpretation can be so painstakingly blown out of proportion. I cannot wait for the truth to come out, as I am being wrongfully labeled, judged and criticized. I have been fully cooperating with the investigation in order for the facts about the alleged incident to be released. Although I want the truth to be revealed as soon as possible, I will patiently handle this situation properly, appropriately, and, most of all, professionally.  “Sexual Harassment” accusations are very serious claims. This wrongful allegation has taken its toll on myself, my friends, and family, and the Philippine Men’s Football National Team that is in the midst of a historical milestone for football in the Philippines. To all those who I inadvertently hurt or insulted due to a comment directed to a teammate, please accept my humble apology. In this time of unrest, I want to thank everyone who has shown their continual support to me and the rest of the team."


From the moment this controversy began, I was trying to get in touch with the players for a statement. I was told to wait for the time when they would. In the meantime, Lex sent me this and asked me to share it with all.  


  1. I'm sure it was just a misunderstanding. Because it should be at least a D cup With all due factual respect. .

  2. sad..but we're all praying for the whole team. truth will come out in God's time and our futbol team will be blessed! i'm really praying because God knows how much i love and support our nat'l team in football. And to Angel and Lexton, stay strong emotionally. You"re loved and a lot of us fans are cheering and praying for you. GOD BLESS the AZKALS!
