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.

My collection of Ateneo Blue Eagles jerseys (including a few PBA shirts too)

I have two more jerseys not in the picture #15 Wesley Gonzales and #44 Steve Watson. I know it's somewhere here at home. Just looking for them.

If you look at Ford Arao's #13, it has the #14 patch in honor of Larry Fonacier after he went down with a season-ending knee injury that prematurely ended his college stint. 

The #17 Zion Laterre is his Team B jersey while the #21 is his Team A shirt. I was Team B "manager" for a year and Zion was one of those players we saw move up to Team A. There were three of them -- Zion, Eman Nazareno, and Mike Baldos -- who moved up to the UAAP team. It is something I am extremely proud of.

#34 is Ace Basas' Team B jersey. I recruited him for Ateneo.

Also have a Wesley Gonzales San Mig Coffee jersey. Just looking for it.
