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.

The Ateneo de Naga Golden Knights

I first heard of this video from Coach Eric Altamirano and Coach Alex Compton who I work with in the National Basketball Training Center. But I only first saw the video a week ago today (Friday October 11) during the first day of the MVP Sports Foundation Coaches Clinic at the Philsports Arena. I was amazed at what my brothers in Ateneo de Naga were preaching and how it mirrors what is being taught in my alma mater, Ateneo de Manila, as well. I thought the video and the messages were powerful. It was an inspiration for the coaches who attended and I do hope it also does something for you as well. Go to see another Ateneo school win a championship. One Big Fight! Thanks to Coach Noli Ayo.
