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.

Alias Mr Pogi. Guess the alias of Aby Maraño, Kev Ferrer, LA Tenorio, Denden Lazaro etc

One of the icebreakers we played during our Gatorade Brand Ambassador Bowling Nite is called, "Alias Mr. Pogi." It's something I concocted where everyone describes themselves in three words to the audience. Everyone then writes down on a piece of paper an alias that is related to their descriptions that no one should know about except the games master who is me. I read out aloud the aliases one by one and those who get it get out of the game. The last person standing (unable to correctly guess the aliases) has a consequence. It's really a fun way to get to know a little something about their fellow Brand Ambassadors and that is all designed to create chemistry and friendship among all of them. 

You see, previously, most didn't know each other outside their respective sport. If they did know one another it was usually because they were schoolmates. We've seen how this friendship helps even during games when they also look out for one another. 

Now, enough of the mushy stuff. Let's see if you can figure out who they are. And here are the participants: Mika Reyes, Gelo Alolino, Nikko Huelgas, LA Tenorio, Jericho Cruz, Mike Tolomia, Alyssa Valdez, Denden Lazaro, Aby Maraño, Kevin Ferrer, Chieffy Caligdong, Ani De Leon-Brown, Von Pessumal, and Tin Gamboa (who is DJ Suzy of 89.9)
