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 Planet Sports for the launch of the Warrior Liverpool FC home kits

June 22, 2012, Power Plant, Rockwell Center, Makati City. Today was the day that the Warrior Liverpool kits made their splash on home soil at Planet Sports. The sporting goods store is the official distributor of the new kits from the world famous club. This week the home kits will only be available at Rockwell then soon after that in Alabang and Trinoma. By next month (July) the away kit will be available. Peewee Ruiz (center) was the first one to purchase the shirt so happy for you, bro. And Chieffy Caligdong, one of my best friends on the national team! I have known for a while that he was a Liverpool fan and will this was our gift to him (Planet Sports and myself) -- the new kit complete with the shorts. The boots will follow. Was hoping Dan Palami -- yes, another LFC fan -- would arrive but I guess the man is busy. But boss, we have your shirt ready for you. For LFC fans, you have to let us know what you are looking for -- scarves, shirts, or what have you so we may order them.

By late this year the new Warrior boots will be available in Philippine shores. They sure look darn awesome. Will get a pair myself.


  1. Are you all willing to make downpayments on orders for scarves? It is risky for suppliers to order then no one will buy them.

  2. Liverpool Kit with Warrior is so good.I especially like his red home kits.
