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.

Preview of the Rebisco Volleyball League Finals between NSNU & DLSL

Preview of the Rebisco Volleyball League Finals between NSNU & DLSL

They were the pre-tourney favorites and they have lived up to the billing.

For the 2017 Rebisco Volleyball League title, it’s going to be Nazareth School versus De La Salle Lipa.

Both teams sport an unblemished 6-0 record. After today, they part ways.

It is going to come down to defense. Who owns that wall. Who digs best. And when they make that quick switch from defense to offense, who can puncture the opposing team’s D.

The Green Chevrons have long been the regional champion. In recent years the Lady Bullpups have become a UAAP power.

NSNU is the taller team and they have the deeper bench. DLSL has a few veterans but they have some talented newcomers.

Will NSNU go full throttle since they are also playing this coming Monday for the UAAP title? This is where their bench comes to play. But they didn’t come all the way to Laguna to finish second. As the team says, they are being groomed to play for multiple titles in as many days.

Will DLSL take it to their foe from the opening serve? In our opinion, if setter Janel Maraguinot can get her teammates involved from both wing and middle positions, they have a chance.

Does experience count? Sure it does. But this also boils down to desire.
