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.

Look at this way cool tee shirt from adidas featuring Derrick Rose. They also have Kevin Garnett and one more dude. Shirts costs PhP 1,200 and it glows in the dark! Whoa!

Below is a CD box "50 Greatest Footballers" set that I got from the St. Francis Square tiangge. It's five discs and it fetches for Php 400 bucks. I was able to haggle for a lower price at PhP 320. Check it out. With features on Paolo Maldini, Gerd Muller, Garrincha, Raul, Franz Beckenbauer, Pele, Marco Van Basten, Zinedine Zidane, Gabriel Batistuta and many others. Really worth the quid. But haggle, man. Haggle. I also picked up a box set of Lone Wolf and Cub (that feudal Japan samurai series that is oh so cool).
