Keeping things in perspective

I wish people would remember that they are discussing 18-22 year-old amateur athletes.

Understand the passion but still

Had a wonderful chat with Cia Goods Fernandez today, preparing to write a story that will run in a few days.

Young mother of 5, kids are 13 and younger. Family living on Maui. Husband’s cousin is Kalei Adolpho

Diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. And yet, refuses to be anything but positive.

I hope you all will keep her in your prayers. It’s going to be a tough battle.

    I agree with you, Cindy! I have always noted that they are young college students and not professionals…both here and the football team. I think we go overboard because we have no professional teams. First clue: our tickets are really inexpensive given the games we are allowed to watch.

    Wishing Cia Goods the best of luck, positive energy, and the inner strength to fight and win this battle.

    To the the people on this blog, have a blessed holiday season and thank you for your insight and oftentimes, passionate discussions.

    To the Wahine, thank you for a fabulous season…you are all winners and we are behind you a thousand percent.

    Looking forward to the 2014 season–Happy New Year everyone!

    Cindy, where are you? AVCA announced the POY, which will draw a lot of “I told you so” on this blog. I won’t post the winner’s name since it’s your blog, your job to do so.
