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.

Charo Soriano wore #8 as a tribute to Brazil's Leila Barros.

As a young girl, Charo Soriano idolized former Brazil star Leila Barros. When she began playing for Ateneo, she chose the #8 for her jersey. And I think that years later, Leila would be proud of her.
