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.

Loyola Meralco Sparks: Terminal stories

With Wu Chul Kim, Alex Elnar and Mike Yamamoto of Loyola. We knew it was a long flight and an evening one at that. We wondered whether we should eat a full meal to tide us over or to eat lightly. The Pinoy players of the Sparks were trying to get the Koreans to teach them to dance Gangnam style. The Koreans weren't amused. Hahaha. Joke. 

Move over Tom Hanks. You aren't the only one sleeping in a Terminal. When we found out that our flight was going to be delayed by over an hour, we decided to get some shuteye. Not in photo is a can that asked for alms. Hahaha. Mga yagit! Movies I uploaded to my Galaxy Tab: The Avengers, Prometheus, The Bourne Legacy, and Amazing Spider-Man.

There was this kid who kept all of us amused. He kept going to me for high fives, water, or to look at my Galaxy Tab. This kid also near finished the chips of Ref Cuaresma.

It was a long and at times bumpy flight. One saving grace for me (and I am sure for many passengers is we had a very pretty stewardess. Hallmark of a pretty girl -- it's late, it's a long flight with some nagging turbulence and she smiles at you like the sun shines after a long and rainy day. 

We finally arrived at Changi Airport at 2am and got out before 3am. We were all too glad to go to our hotel for some real shuteye. Breakfast at 10am. Player registration at 12noon. Game briefing and film viewing at 4pm. Practice at Jalan Besar at 7pm.

We're all raving about Heineken's new Skyfall advert. Daniel Craig is the best James Bond ever!
