“Whoa, Nellie”

“Granddaddy of them all”

“Big Uglies”

“Big House”

“We’re going to play football … yippee!”

“Hold the phone …”


“Whoa, Nellie”

    We’re all still here this morning.
    RIP, Keith.

    Dick Enberg passed away on Dec. 21 and he used to say “Oh my !”
    Another broadcaster uses that phrase too, i think.

    Wonder if ducking under the water at the beach would
    minimize a missle threat. Surfers at Diamond Head
    were happily catching waves.

    This morning’s take shelter message also goes to show how unprepared the State is to deal with such a threat. The emergency message said to “seek immediate shelter”. The State never educated the public on what shelters are available to protect against a nuclear bomb. Most structures in a blast zone would be devastated in any case. Everyone should visit the Hiroshima Peace Memorial to realize what a nuclear blast can do. If you manage to survive the blast, then there is the radiation that can kill you or cause long term damage. Today’s nuclear bombs are many times greater than Hiroshima’sand Nagasaki’s bombs.

    Great Morning All!

    RIP Keith Jackson.

    Saturdays won’t be the same…

    Ipu Man,

    The difference between crispy or hard-boiled

  7. H-Man January 13, 2018 11:24 am

    Waiting for the end to arrive, I was doing today’s Ken-Ken puzzle and listening to soft rock. I also called relatives to say hello and goodbye.

    Unless we give it to him, Fat Boy doesn’t have those kinds of weapons.

  9. Ipu Man January 13, 2018 12:19 pm

    Saw a video of UH students running faster than St. Juste…

  10. Ipu Man January 13, 2018 12:20 pm

    One smart father forced his family into a manhole.
    Makes sense at least for the moment.

    While the false alarm continued for 38 minutes. So did Trump’s round of golf.

    Are you sure that you want to run for reelection, David Ige? If your answer is YES, press here.

    Apologizes and promising to get to the bottom of this, doesn’t cut it.

    I guess they transferred some workers from the State Hospital to State Civil Defense. Just another day in paradise.

  14. Ipu Man January 13, 2018 4:15 pm

    I wonder if the union backs Hanabusa and if the person
    who punched the wrong button is a union worker doing a
    dirty trick to make Gov. Ige look bad.

  15. Kahuna January 13, 2018 4:51 pm

    When I got the alert I was unsure what to do. Then I realized that we won’t be able to survive a nuclear blast …..so why worry? Went on with my day as if nothing will happen. If it ends here, then so be.

    Running and screaming is not going to stop an incoming missile so why do those things too?

  16. turfwar January 13, 2018 5:29 pm

    This was a good thing in so many ways. Fortunately no one died but it gives so many a chance to truely think this thing out. Really where are you going to find that’s a safe place within 12 -15 minutes? Like Kahuna I thought the same way. Gives you reason to remember to always cherish your loved ones and to make everyday count. For me I give thanks to the guy who pushed the button. This will start into motion a slew of new and improved communication systems and giving the state and city much to thnk about.

  17. Haleakala January 13, 2018 6:13 pm

    Turfwar: That makes sense of course. We sure hope that happens.

    If it doesn’t, we will know we need new leaders and administrators.

    Let’s hope for the best.

  18. madeinhawaii January 13, 2018 7:22 pm

    How many millions were lost due to this false alarm? Longs closed its shops in the AM and sent employees home. I bet a lot of businesses did the same. Many employees stayed home listening for follow ups. People were crying.. some panicking.

  19. winning January 13, 2018 7:51 pm

    Just as someone or some people sabotaged Cec Heftel’s election, the same for our Gov. Dirty Pool!!

  20. Mytake January 13, 2018 8:33 pm

    When I was awaken by the alert of an incoming ICBM most probably tipped with a several kilotoni nuclear warhead, my first thought was to fill my truck with gas before it closed. As I drove I realised I had about 10 minutes to live and I should spend it with my kids! So I turned around and went back home.

  21. MauiBoyAlaska January 13, 2018 10:17 pm

    He called the 1989 Aloha bowl game which was UH first modern bowl game.

  22. cappie the dog January 13, 2018 11:25 pm

    I was at work.

    I don’t have a phone.

    Several people gathered around me as if I had a plan to survive a nuclear war.

    For ninety seconds I thought we were goners.

    But then I opened the gate and didn’t hear any sirens.

    I then asked a friend to check MSN.com.

    Nothing there.

    I felt better.

    But I wasn’t 100% sure.

    I went into the break room and finished my Masha Gessen book.

    Who ever took UH in tonight’s basketball game must be sick…

  25. Steve January 14, 2018 2:25 am

    I thought it was a false alarm the moment I saw the text alert on my phone. Why? Because I ruled out the possible culprits and motivations. Take Kim Jong Un, he’s not stupid. He is a demi_god and having a great time ! He was educated in Switzerland and knows full well that if he launched an nuclear attack on the US that his country along with Kim, would soon after be a charred, desolate landscape radioactive for years. He is not dumb. No, I knew it was not North Korea. Or China for that matter; they are too busy making money along with relegating our country to lower rungs on the economic ladder. Nor would it be Russia..they are getting it done on the internet! No, I was sure it was a false alarm as my neighbor and I hung out on the sidewalk with our morning coffee, wondering who blew it?

  26. Maddog50 January 14, 2018 7:04 am

    Looking for some kind of news on the pending Coaching hires and some little bits on receiving front. The hire thing is extremely tight lipped from what I can tell-nothing on Scoop other boards or even my contacts. Just looking for some good additions on the roster and some Coaches who can teach, develop and get us back to real Warrior FB!!!!

  27. fshnpoi January 14, 2018 7:10 am

    i know no one wants to hear about other countries, but at least we get a warning..

  28. SteveM January 14, 2018 8:01 am

    I was about to disembark the Pride of America cruise ship at Pier 2 when the Captain closed the gangway when the alert arrived. Why? I wondered… why not let everyone off to seek shelter?

    Then I realized there was very little shelter on land and the Captain likely meant to keep the passengers aboard and flee out to sea, figuring there was still hours to run. If there was indeed a hit and the ship survived far out enough, it could evacuate us to the mainland. A sobering scenario, but give NCL America and the Captain credit for trying to save the passengers.

    What good UH football news have I missed?
