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.

Perpetual Help looking at a one-year NCAA suspension?
by rick olivares

MANILA, Philippines – The University of Perpetual Help System Dalta could be facing a one-year suspension in National Collegiate Athletic Association play if it is proven that they fielded an ineligible player this current season.

A NCAA source familiar with the situation related that Arvin Migote, a high school player currently playing for Perpetual Help’s juniors volleyball team was called into question for having enrolled in a University Athletic Association of the Philippines school before moving back to the secondary level.

It is alleged that Migote enrolled at Far Eastern University college but went back to high school.’s NCAA source says that it remains unclear if the Altas volleyball team knew that Migote had enrolled in college previously or if he played for FEU’s volleyball team.

The Junior Altas are currently running second to Emilio Aguinaldo College in the ongoing volleyball competitions with an unbeaten 7-0 slate. Migote, is ranked as 21st in scoring.

The matter has been elevated to the NCAA’s Management Committee that is in turn waiting for Perpetual Help’s internal investigation before rendering judgment on the matter.

If found party to the fraudulent transfer, UPHSD could find itself banned from all athletic play in all sports for Season 90.
