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.

UE's Charles Mammie has a message for Adamson's Ingrid Sewa

I know of athletes wearing armbands or patches where they put messages. I also know that some scribble some on their shoes. In yesterday's quarterfinals match up between UE and Adamson, watching the Red Warriors' Charles Mammie (who is from Sierra Leone) do battle with the Falcons' Ingrid Sewa (who is from Cameroon) inside the paint was like watching two giants inside a wrestling cage. There was a lot of pushing, elbowing, jawing, trash talking, and well scoring.

Sewa won the stats battle: 12 points, 12 rebounds, and 3 blocks to the 6 points and 14 rebounds of Mammie. The Red Warriors won 66-58 and Mammie literally had the last word (check the psych up message on his shoes -- and yes, the message can be erased).

Now don't take this too literally, they were all right after the game. It's all just part of the psy-war between clubs trying to chase a title.
