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.

This appears in the Tuesday May 28, 2013 edition of the Business Mirror.

Adamson’s Cruz, UE’s Santos lead Filoil weekly awards

Adamson University’s Jericho Cruz is the Master Best Player of the Week of May 15-18 in the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup. Cruz, the Filipino from the Northern Mariana Island of Saipan, led the Falcons to a 80-63 win over the College of Saint Benilde where he compiled 24 points, four rebounds, one assist, and one block.

Cruz, who replaces Alex Nuyles as Adamson’s leader after the latter’s graduation, is joined in the Gatorade Best Five of the Week for the same period by La Salle power forward Jason Perkins, National University’s Cameroonian center Alfred Aroga, the University of the East’s Ralf Olivarez, and San Beda College’s Arthur Dela Cruz.

UE’s Adrian Santos was named Gatorade Defensive Player of the Week in his team’s 85-68 triumph over the University of Santo Tomas where he hauled down 24 rebounds. The win put the Red Warriors in a strong position to advance to the quarterfinals of the summer’s premier collegiate basketball tournament.

The Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup is presented by Hanes and Vulcaseal/Bostick. The collegiate basketball tournament is co-presented by Master Facial Wash, Starmobile, Meralco, and San Mig Coffee. Sponsors include DHL, Nature’s Spring, Reyes BBQ, Banco De Oro, and Bayo. Minor sponsors include Molten, Brother’s Burger, San Marino, Bank of the Philippine Islands, and Bacchus Energy Drink.
