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.

Showing him love -- Kevin Love is surprised at the reception he got here in Manila

NBA superstar Kevin Love is surrounded by television cameramen, photographers, and fans right before the Master Game Face Challenge got underway. Obviously you cannot see him because he's sitting down.

Kevin admitted that he didn't really know anything about the Philippines save for Manny Pacquiao. He thought that boxing was the most popular sport and was hapy to know that it is hoops. He also expressed surprise at the massive reception he got n Manila.

Here is one dude who is a legit star yet isn't even in his prime yet. If he were healthy the Big Fella would have suited up.
