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.

FEU’s former CDC coach to join Ateneo
by rick olivares 

Jacqueline Alolor-Alota, Far Eastern University’s Cheerdance Coach who led the Morayta-based school to 10-consecutive top three finishes from 2003-12 will be taking her talents to Ateneo de Manila University come January 1, 2016.

“We are pleased to have a top flight coach with us,” disclosed Ateneo Blue Babble Battalion Program Head Ralph Aligada. “Coach Jackie will bring her ideas, creativity, and experience to Ateneo.”

Ateneo’s CDC team finished last in the last three Cheerdance Competitions. “Any great changes will not happen overnight,” noted Aligada who himself was a part of the BBB during his school years. “We are also installing a new program for our team and for Coach Jackie to work her magic with us."

Alolor-Alota, was released from this past season after FEU missed the top three in the past three years. She led FEU to its second CDC title in 2009. Joining her in Ateneo will be her assistants Julius Quitalag and Peter Padilla.
