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.

Talk ‘N Text’s new look

Talk ‘N Text’s new look

If you’re wondering what has come over the Talk ‘N Text’s suddenly hirsute appearance, then wonder no more.

Almost the entire team is sporting a beard or some facial hair.

I had to ask team manager Paolo Trillo about this considering the humid weather we have been experiencing. According to Trillo, when Richard Howell first came over, he was the only one (aside from Kelly Williams, Harvey Carey and a new-look Ranidel De Ocampo) sporting a beard. Then it became a team thing with four or five others joining in until everyone decided to sport some (more so since their unbeaten streak began).

The exceptions?

Jimmy Alapag and Jai Reyes.

Quipped Trillo, “No matter how hard they try, they just can’t seem to grow any hair on their face.”


Imagine if TNT still had Jared Dillinger… I wanted to ask JD if he was a fan of the WWE's Daniel Bryan… you think it's a YES?
