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.

Strange days. Welcome to the rollercoaster ride of emotions that is sports.

In one Saturday, Ateneo gets shellacked by La Salle. Liverpool loses the Capital One Cup championship to Man City in a heartbreaking penalty shoot-out. 
In one day, La Salle, with a chance to top the league at the end of the first round of play, loses to UST in a shocking loss to end their first round (so Ateneo remains atop the UAAP standings with DLSU second that is small consolation). Liverpool exacts a modicum of revenge over Man City in their second round, 3-1, last night at Anfield (the Reds beat the Citizens 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium in the first round). Slightly atones for the Capital One loss.
But I'll take it. 
Welcome to the roller coaster ride of emotions that is sports.
