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.

Football jerseys in my collection #2 My own jerseys

Here are four jerseys with my name on them.

Left: Homeless World Cup Team 2012. They kit they wore to Paris that year. Handled the team's publicity for one season plus, I brought in Gatorade as team sponsor. Was supposed to join the team in France but some idiot didn't fix my papers.

Second from left: GroupM/Mindshare fielded a team in the Adobo Cup of three years ago. I played keeper for the team. I like our shirt! The best of the two that I got a year later (third from left). Yes, it's the blue and white stripes.

Rightmost jersey: The first ever jersey from the first ever Clear Dream Match that I conceptualized. Was "drafted" into Team Phil Younghusband so I got my own shirt.

Below: This is our Gatorade jersey from a football event we organized from two years back. Complete with my name getting the Portuguese treatment.
