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.

With Coach Erik Spoelstra at the Gatorade livestream Facebook chat

We held a livestream video chat with Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra at the Marriott Hotel yesterday. There were supposed to be a few more other college basketball players but none of them were available except for Ateneo's Nico Salva. Jinno Ruffino hosted the 40-minute show. In the picture above, Nico gives Coach Spo pointers on defending a championship.

Some of the fans who were lucky enough to win in the Gatorade Philippines Facebook promo attended the event where they got to briefly talk to Coach Spo and get his autograph and pic taken.

Interviewing Nico Salva in the pre-chat segment. And below with Coach Spo and the Larry O'Brien trophy. Got to talk to coach and will write about that tomorrow.
