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.

Some info about the first ever Shakey's V-League/Spikers' Turf All-Star Game

The first Shakey’s V-League/Spikers’ Turf All-Star Game will be held this coming Sunday, November 20, 2016 at the Philsports Arena.

The proceeds of this match will go to the victims of the last typhoon.

The best 30 players for each division were chosen for their statistics. Coaches were divided into two teams with each side drafting their own players with every turn. All the players will be wearing light or dark colors of their club/school uniforms. Just like the NBA All-Star Game.
