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 2012 Adobo Cup

At the 2012 Adobo Cup with organizer and good friend Bob Guerrero. Played defender and keeper for GroupM (1-1-3 in our maiden campaign). The old man in me conceded two goals. Went home with red skin and a scarred knee. Hahaha. But do we as GroupM get points for our cool blue and white kit? Love it. As keeper, I wore Ray Jonsson's Grindavik shirt. 

GroupM United. Standing (L-R) Jay-P Bautista, me, Franco Alvarez, Robbie Manauis, Osborne Bautista. Crouching (L-R) Reg Geotina, Anna Romero, Bon Castro and Ivy Tabares. Not in photo: JP Narag, Cedelf Tupas, Maan del Carmen, and Oz Arcilla. We have a complete team photo somewhere. Had fun this Saturday! Thanks to GroupM, Mizuno, and to the Adobo Cup organizers -- mabuhay! As playing coach, I made an effort to let everyone play. No benching. We came to have fun and try to win. I fielded mixed teams at all times (unlike others).
