2010 vision

According to someone in the know, the top prospects for 2010 are Punahou defensive lineman Sani Fuimaono, Leilehua quarterback Andrew Manley and Kahuku defensive end Kona Schwenke.
Fuimaono, who also competes in judo, is the 2009 state wrestling champion in the 285-pound division.
Manley, who toured UH on his own last summer, has drawn interest from UCLA.
And Schwenke, who is 6 feet 5 and can run 40 yards in 4.7 seconds, already has received an offer from BYU.

Long-snapper Jake Ingram will be our (video) chat guest on Tuesday.

  1. Stretch March 1, 2009 10:41 am

    Good Morning Tsaikos!!

    Hopefully we will be able to keep at least 2 of 3 prospects in Hawaii!!

  2. spike96822 March 1, 2009 10:46 am


  3. TOM March 1, 2009 10:46 am

    Good Morning Hawaii!

    Top 5 today – fantastic.

    I recall Manley was offered. How about the other two?

  4. spike96822 March 1, 2009 10:46 am


  5. Stephen Tsai March 1, 2009 10:47 am

    Manley was indeed offered. Not sure about the other two.
    But I imagine UH must be reluctant to enter the bidding for Punahou players.

  6. cavewarrior March 1, 2009 10:48 am

    Still lurking…Hi all!

    GO Warriors!!!

  7. Stephen Tsai March 1, 2009 10:48 am

    I’m watching the 2008 Sugar Bowl.
    The outcome is still the same.

  8. cavewarrior March 1, 2009 10:51 am

    So was Colt holding the ball too long, trying too hard for the big play…Were the receivers not reading the blitz properly….Saw it in person, & have not had the stomach to watch it again.

  9. Stephen Tsai March 1, 2009 10:53 am

    When I saw it live, I thought he held the ball too long.
    In retrospect, the blocking wasn’t very good. And the receivers weren’t getting any separation.

  10. cavewarrior March 1, 2009 10:55 am

    It was just sooo different when Tyler came in and just starting hitting receivers; seemed like TG got the ball out quickly.

  11. A-House March 1, 2009 10:55 am

    Good morning ST, good neighbor, and all Tsiakos near and far wishing you all the very best today and in all the days to come.

    Stretch: I would like to see UH sign all 3 – believe got good chance IF the new coaches are very productive and players use the “coconut wireless” to talk to prospects ( is this against NCAA rules? ). Go so many chicken-ass rules for so many manini things and NCAA only go after the “little” schools – burns my ass!!

    ST: Midor7 taped the Sugar Bowl, but we have yet to summon the courage to watch it – still painful.

  12. Kazz (blkberry_storm) March 1, 2009 10:56 am

    I don’t care what anyone says… The UH cheerleaders should be at ALL sporting events.

    Well at least the ones where there is a crowd.

    To say they “don’t belong at a volleyball game and should be sent away to a basketball game” is quite an insult to a program that has talented student athletes.

    But I digress…

  13. A-House March 1, 2009 10:57 am


    Will UH go after Taufoti who committed to Wyoming last week?

  14. Stephen Tsai March 1, 2009 10:57 am

    The main thing: Georgia was better.

  15. Kazz (blkberry_storm) March 1, 2009 11:02 am

    Notre Dame was no Georgia.

    Not even close…

  16. Stephen Tsai March 1, 2009 11:03 am

    It’s not as bad as I remember.
    Losing Rivers hurt, but Salas ran some nice routes.
    OK, wait, the officiating sucked. I mean, Davone Bess was called for being an ineligible receiver downfield.

  17. Stephen Tsai March 1, 2009 11:04 am

    I think UH really needed Nate Ilaoa for this game. He would have done some damage against the three-man front.

  18. Kazz (blkberry_storm) March 1, 2009 11:06 am

    I remember June Jones saying “the only team I am focused on is Georgia” when people asked him about the SMU rumours at that time.

    I believed him.

    Fool me once, shame on…….. ME and kudos to you. 😈

  19. Stephen Tsai March 1, 2009 11:07 am

    I think Keala Watson should have played more.
    And Mouton was hardly used.

  20. Stephen Tsai March 1, 2009 11:09 am

    UH practiced for two weeks with Laupepa Letuli at tight end. So the game comes, and … no tight end.

  21. letsgowarriors March 1, 2009 11:12 am

    “But I imagine UH must be reluctant to enter the bidding for Punahou players.”?

    there are already a lot of prospects for 2010. cant wait to see who mack and co. land.

  22. el guapo March 1, 2009 11:16 am


    A long time ago the cheerleaders were at baseball during the WAC tournament and went onto the field between innings to lead cheers. They almost got hit by wild throws. They didn’t know the basic rule at a baseball game – don’t turn your back on the field.

    They could be at most other events. Well, maybe not golf. πŸ˜‰

  23. A-House March 1, 2009 11:17 am


    What about Hatchie (OT) from Waialua? Was he offered last year abut the same time as Manley?

  24. Stephen Tsai March 1, 2009 11:21 am

    I’ll have to double check the list.

  25. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER March 1, 2009 11:28 am

    Aloha Kakahiaka!



  26. Stephen Tsai March 1, 2009 11:29 am

    One of the problems I see is the Georgia DEs fake to the outside, then cut inside. Hey, UH probably should have just tried to seal the inside lane, since the DEs aren’t going to get the QB by going outside.
    Then again, they were kind of fast …

  27. Stephen Tsai March 1, 2009 11:31 am

    OK, I’m going to stop giving play-by-play on a game that was played 14 months ago today.

  28. SteveM March 1, 2009 11:32 am

    Good morning ST and everyone!

  29. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER March 1, 2009 11:33 am

    The thing that struck me about the live game was that the offensive plays did not seem to change much even when it was not working.
    The 2 things that struck me about the Sugar Bowl when I saw it on TV was- The UGA dee was out to stop Colt. Period.
    The faces of the Warriors on the sidelines reflected a total loss of fighting spirit (in the knowledge of JJ’s departure ?) – something that never manifested in previous games when they were down by many points.

  30. ai-eee-soos March 1, 2009 11:38 am


    Accordung to Doris at PIAA, offers were made to 5:

    Hatchie, Rowley, Manley, Fehoko, & Taz Stevenson.

  31. ai-eee-soos March 1, 2009 11:41 am


    accordung =according, ob coursse!!

  32. Stephen Tsai March 1, 2009 11:43 am

    Stevenson and Manley, for sure.
    I’m not sure about the rest.

  33. TOM March 1, 2009 11:53 am

    Doesn’t hurt to try to get players from Punahou if they are good. We have gotten players from Punahou as freshman and there were players that went to the Mainland but transferred to UH.

    Players that come to UH for the 4/5 years are more than welcome since we can train them for a longer period than transfers. The point being is that if they are somewhat pursued, at least the potential transferee know that there is a possibility of coming back and being welcomed.

  34. Committed Road Warrior March 1, 2009 12:17 pm

    BaseBows wrapping up their trip to Minnesota against the Gophers.
    2-1 Bows in the 5th. Gophers have the bases loaded with 0 outs.

  35. SteveM March 1, 2009 12:22 pm

    September 18 Programming Note: It is certain there will be a Tsai-ko gathering on Friday, Sept. 18 from around 6:00 PM. las vegas is still working on where, depending on estimated count. We’ll gather the numbers later since Rich2176’s ticket numbers are more critical at this moment.

    The Friday night gathering is to allow Tsai-kos from Hawaii and the mainland (international too) to finally meet. Part of the program will be small group introductions.

    It is apparent that not all Tsai-kos would tailgate together on Saturday. We have UH Alumni Association tailgate, SportsHawaii tailgate, Boyd tailgate, our tailgate, hotel and travel agency tailgates, etc.. SO, the Friday night gathering is planned for everyone who makes it to Vegas in time….

  36. Pauoa Boy March 1, 2009 12:23 pm

    Regardless, UH should offer all the top local prospects on Oahu and the outer islands. Get planny talent in the islands and if the focus is to keep the boys home then offer all of um! Obviously some will stay some will go but at least they all know we like them play for us, play for the home team! Taz Stevenson and Andrew Manley are beasts!!!

  37. Stretch March 1, 2009 12:23 pm

    Thanks CRW for the reminder…

    No sooner I turn on the game, then UH walks in a run for a tie game.

  38. SteveM March 1, 2009 12:25 pm

    Tsai-kos in Las Vegas September 18-19, 2009 &
    Tsai-kos who might be Las Vegas September 18-19, 2009

    las vegas needs to know the estimated number for the Saturday tailgate and optional bus planning. Planning is also underway for a Friday night Get-together Party for all mainland and Hawaii Tsai-kos! ❗ Rich2176 needs to know who and how many game tickets are needed. Survey requests for tickets will be turned over to Rich2176 at the end of February or when he is ready.

    I will continue to collect ticket requests until Rich2176 is ready (and tailgate and FRIDAY night party RSVPs indefinitely) via the survey at:

    If you cannot get into the survey or have subsequent changes or ETA & lodging info, please email me at: stevem.hnl (at) gmail.com

    A summary of the data and plans are posted at:
    Please check if your listed info is accurate. This listing also serves as visual assurance that your ticket/tailgate requests were received.

    I have started to link the hotels (outside of downtown) of those who have reservations made. This for location and potential lodging site info for those still searching.

  39. 99club March 1, 2009 12:50 pm

    Good afternoon Tsaikos…mildly cold here in the land of kim chee.

    Sani Fuimaono sounds interesting. Yup, can’t have enough defensive linemen that can flip blockers out of the way to wrestle RB’s to the ground, I always say. πŸ™‚

    I seem to remember the WAC master schedule came out in the middle of March last year. One thing we can bet on is UNR in freeze-da-okole-to-da-seat November. Still, that’d be a trip worth taking.

  40. bighilofan2 March 1, 2009 1:09 pm

    Hoy hoy laddeez and Tsaikos.

    so maybe da 3 names up above like stay? day like go? dis is my peelings, truly.

    March 1st, 2009 at 8:08 am
    I wuz feeling bad dat da big palooka from Kapolei was going away. den we get dis awesome nationally talked about palooka coming dis way. so dis is my prediction: da Warriors gonna kick some serious butt in da next four years, we gonna keep feeling really good about our Coach and what he is doing in da program and upgrading the coaches and respecting his coaches and giving all the coaches a chance to shine and getting respect in their own rights, and we all gonna feel good about our Warriors, and being a part of the Warrior ohana.
    yep, too bad not all da good localz gonna be a part of all this to come.

    March 1st, 2009 at 8:11 am
    A special shout out to da high school coaches who believe in Warrior Nation, pride and in bringing out and promoting the best for Hawaii.

    March 1st, 2009 at 8:11 am
    special shoutout to Rich and his Speed and Quickness volunteers

    March 1st, 2009 at 8:32 am
    Yeah..was too bad about Hasiak but I already knew we had zero chance of landing him. He’s had mainland/PAC-10 on the brain for years now. I wish him the best in the future but I don’t plan on following his career. Pretty much same as Teo or any of our other guys that choose to go away. I hope they do well, but my focus is on those who want to be WARRIORS.

    so there you have it. I totally agree with KapoleiWarrior.
    if you wanna be a Warrior, hooray. if you wanna go away, best of luck to you. we not going stand in yo way.

    We Tsaikos always gonna be for Hawaii, we ain’t gonna remember your name if you go Bruin, Trojan, Irish, Beaver, Duck,, Courgar or Husky. I remember the name Charlie Wedemeyer and I know Freitas went Lions, but I don’t know anything else. And the real truth is I NO CARE. I only care about those who want to be Warriors and those who become
    Warriors and help us, Warrior Nation, feel good about ourselves.

    We could be cheering for you, if you let us. Its your choice.

    Go Warriors!!

  41. ktm March 1, 2009 1:11 pm

    hi good afternoon stephen tsai i just wanted to say to you that on yesterday blog you said that the walkons on the 2009 hawaii warriors football team was good but was not good enough to earn a uh football scholarship this spring ball or summer ball. for me i think that maybe 3 players have a chance if they work hard .

  42. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER March 1, 2009 1:22 pm

    99club- what… COLD over there? Is TChahng still there?
    Have fun and think of me in the land of gimchee!

  43. 99club March 1, 2009 1:44 pm

    Not THAT cold. Supposed to get up to 45도 today. I’m sure TChahng’s around…I’m heading up to Seoul right now to visit the War Museum. Taking the subway. I’m here through the 16th…99bar cattle call?

  44. al β„’ March 1, 2009 1:44 pm

    i taped the sugar bowl too. i haven’t watched it yet. but, now that you are giving play by play.

    darn it.

  45. Stretch March 1, 2009 1:47 pm

    ktm: re #41.

    Very interesting – could you give us those names?

    A few of us (like me) can’t wait for Spring & Summer camps.

    Will be on the lookout for these guys – I plan on watching a few practices.


  47. d1ε³Ά March 1, 2009 1:48 pm

    Great Afternoon All!

    Gotta make it to one of those 70’s band things someday, too.

    Haven’t been able to watch the entire SB game yet either. πŸ™

  48. Committed Road Warrior March 1, 2009 1:48 pm

    Heartbreaking loss for the BaseBows. First blown save of the year (IIRC).
    Gophers rally for 3 runs in the bottom of the 9th to snatch the victory, 5-4.

    They split the Minnesota trip. Back home to host Miss. St. next weekend…..

  49. Kekoa March 1, 2009 1:50 pm

    Kekoa, Brew,

    I became a civilian in mid-flight yesterday…somewhere over Russia, ironically, since I came in during the cold war. I didn’t know we had overflight rights! At least I’m pretty sure we get ’em since I nevah when see any AAA or SAMs flying by.

    Gotta cancel the trip up to the War Museum, they stay closed on Mondays! Auwe. Guess I gotta scout for the UH while over here. Always on the lookout for talent for ‘da Rainbow Dancers. πŸ™‚

  59. Kekoa March 1, 2009 2:13 pm

    A little public service announcement for anyone who wants to come join us this afternoon to talk a little Warrior fb. We also would welcome your input of ideas to fire up our next Tsaiko T-gate on Maui.

    Koakane ~ Eh my pahtna!
    Good to hear that you’ll be able to contribute to the Wessai Chaptah’s meeting at Nancy’s today. Looking forward to your ‘Testimonial’ during the Bible study part of the agenda. We’re meeting at 3 PM at Nancy’s over a bowl of her deelicious Tripe stew. Adult beverages are always suggested to help wash down the trail dust.

    *Again, all Tsaiko’s are encouraged to attend…Not for the faint of heart. (child birthing experience accepted). Had to add that disclaimer for the moms so dey no get hu hu wit us guys…Ok Aunty Rob25?

    No kidding about the Hoyas. What happened to them this year? They started out OK. Better than the Terps. If they could only make their WIDE OPEN layups. WAC tourney comin’ up! Anything can happen, λ„€? I’ve gotta get one of these Korean keyboards and drive Jason crazy.

    Amanda Paterson is the UH Compliance Officer/Administrator. We know that many other programs have more than one person handling these important duties. Any chance that UH might accept volunteer (Tsaiko?) workers to help – xeroxing, correspondence, surfing the web for info,…. anything to help? 😯 πŸ˜• πŸ™„

  151. Kekoa March 1, 2009 7:15 pm

    Hiya UHfan808! Been back from Wessai meeting of the minds long enough to download all the classified information discussed there. As usual, we had a great time trying to solve all the problems of the UH over a hot bowl of Tripe. (except Ralph…he ate the Hawaiian combo).

    Are you coming on campus next Saturday for Jason’s version of *The Amazing Race?* I think it’s a Soopah Tsaiko way of supporting Jason and the tremendous cause that he is representing. Come hang out with us, should be a very moving experience.

  152. Kekoa March 1, 2009 7:17 pm

    Likewize Liz!…Jake is the ‘center’ of the Universe.

  166. MeiLing March 1, 2009 8:15 pm

    Great comeback for the wahine tonight! JD & crew did make it affordable: WBB ticket, burger fries & a drink = $12+change.
    The Wahine Basketball team winning = PRICELESS

    Chawan_cut was there…

  167. MIke March 1, 2009 8:24 pm

    Wow, Pat C. is padding her record. I have to believe it’s just a matter of time before someone taps her for a head position. But having dignitaries like MeiLing and Chawan in attendance is going to screw up my doom-and-gloom story, which is running tomorrow (sorry for the cheap plug).

  168. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER March 1, 2009 8:26 pm

    Hi MeiLing!
    Sorry, Mike!

  169. MeiLing March 1, 2009 8:28 pm

    oops, forgot a comma “burger, fries…”

    That was a great game for the Wahine. They came out of the half at a faster pace, gunning for the basket. Hope they can keep up that level of play in their final game.


    Did you recognize the football players who came in to the SSC at the end of the 2nd half? John Estes, I think… and maybe Symonds…

  170. MeiLing March 1, 2009 8:32 pm

    Hi, LizK!

    Hi, Mike! I was wondering who was there from the media.

    At least Ariel didn’t spend too much time chatting with the players. That Tara Hittle is a clown. Good fun!

    K, off to do stuffs… esme & out….

  171. Kazz (blkberry_storm) March 1, 2009 8:38 pm

    The Wahine DESERVED this win as much as they fought back to get it.

    Kanekoa is a basketball goddess!

    That second half is stuff dreams are made of.

  172. Ralph March 1, 2009 8:47 pm

    if the wahines played the season like they played the 2nd half with pat charity coaching all season long they would have won a lot more games in the WAC. I noticed she played a lot of freshmen down the stretch and a lot of new combination of players. Pushed the right buttons down the stretch…

  173. Rob25 March 1, 2009 8:49 pm

    Frank’s gone..he’s at work now. Was waiting for me to put a load in the dryer.

    The first thing that he eats when he comes home depends on what time of day he comes in. I’m pretty sure that he wants anything with rice…typical local boy.

    Just stopped to check in…was at the movies today watching Slumdog Millionaire and Milk. Loved both…great performances all around.

    Have a good evening and great week!

  174. Ralph March 1, 2009 8:55 pm

    what he does ask for poi!

  175. d1ε³Ά March 1, 2009 8:57 pm

    Good to hear the Wahine pulled it out tonight.

    Hopefully the MBB can claw their way outta the play-in game this week.

    Hate to say it but anything beyond a “One and Done” for both teams in Reno is “house money”

  176. Ralph March 1, 2009 9:15 pm

    #174 what he doesn’ ask for poi?

  177. MIke March 1, 2009 9:27 pm

    Hi MeiLing. Actually, I wasn’t at the game. I’m stuck in the office, actually wishing I were at the game. I was there last week, though, when there was just one person in the Manoa Maniacs section. Sad.

  178. MIke March 1, 2009 9:29 pm

    Notice how much looser (and better) the Wahine have been playing recently?

  179. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER March 1, 2009 9:36 pm

    Before it goes away, have a peek at this – scroll down to the large images…
    pretty funny.

    jm2375- Extremeskins is extreme and you need a thick skin. But it
    1. Helped me appreciate the WB a LOT more!
    2. Teaches patience, restraint and loving kindness because I don’t want to “make A” trying to defend Colt.
    3. Helped me meet a few very nice people in person and through private emails.

  184. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER March 1, 2009 9:58 pm

    OK. time for nigh nigh. Gotta get up at O-dark-thirty for the next 19 days.

  186. chawan_cut March 1, 2009 10:08 pm

    awesome come back win for the wahine tonight.
    down by 20 at the half to come back to pull it off by 1.
    relentless defense and much better shooting and decisions helped them get it.
    nice way to send the seniors off.

  187. chawan_cut March 1, 2009 10:11 pm

    i’m a dignitary? wow, thanks! i think thats the first compliment i’ve got on this blog.
    it wasn’t looking good being down by 20, but that must’ve been one heck of a halftime speech either by Coach Charity or maybe the seniors.
    kanekoa and her steals, tinnin with her timely shooting and everyone else for picking it up and going for broke.
    wow, dignitary….

  188. Kekoa March 1, 2009 10:15 pm

    Liz ~ One quick question before you go down for the count.

  189. Jason March 1, 2009 10:15 pm

    Haha, love that pic. πŸ˜€

  190. MeiLing March 1, 2009 10:16 pm


    Was that you sitting w/ chawan_cut in the Manoa Maniacs section?

  191. d1ε³Ά March 1, 2009 10:17 pm


    I can’t remember what I had for lunch!
    I know I did at the KK but really don’t recall that one at Genji

  192. chawan_cut March 1, 2009 10:17 pm

    i didn’t notice the players. where were they?
    i saw some of the wahine vball players there in the “manoa maniacs” section to cheer for hittle.
    that was the first time i sat behind the bench. i guess thats a prime spot to get on tv a lot (i hope i didn’t get caught pickin’ my nose or doing anything else lame). my friend brought his int school team to watch the game and we joined them. much different view.
    would’ve been kinda weird to be the only person sitting in the “manoa maniacs” section by myself (well, with the wahine vball players and 3 other fans there)

  193. d1ε³Ά March 1, 2009 10:21 pm


    Great job with the pics and video. You folks had awesome seats! (looked hot though)

  194. d1ε³Ά March 1, 2009 10:23 pm

    OK, if I take a “nap” that lasts longer than four hours, is it still a nap?

  196. Stephen Tsai March 1, 2009 10:28 pm

    Did I mention my theory that the Stan Sheriff isn’t really 10,000 seats? It appeared there was a sizeable crowd yesterday, but UH said it was only 20 percent filled.

  197. Kazz (blkberry_storm) March 1, 2009 10:28 pm


    Sorry to say that was not me getting prime TV time like Chawan. I think he was on tv like 4xs!

  198. Kazz (blkberry_storm) March 1, 2009 10:34 pm


    You just woke up in time to watch the replay of the Wahine game.

    Hmmm I too wonder if JB was watching this.


    Its easier to play basketball without the threat of getting “a size 14 up your a##”.

  199. SteveM March 1, 2009 10:35 pm

    Thanks, d1ε³Ά — I win the bet…she said Genji’s. But Peaches and I agree that you sang that one beautifully. It was on the Lawrence Welk finale tonight and we were singing along…which brought up the question and bet. πŸ˜†

    Time to gloat a bit and go sleep…work day tomorrow. Good night!

  200. Kazz (blkberry_storm) March 1, 2009 10:38 pm

    “UH Rainbow Wahine Head Coach Pat Charity”… Man… This just sounds right.

    Kinda like “he is not even allowed on campus” – Jim Leahey on Jim Bolla.

  201. d1ε³Ά March 1, 2009 10:38 pm

    One of my greatest nightmares has become reality:

    I am now associated with a performance on Lawrence Welk πŸ‘Ώ πŸ™ πŸ™„

    Re Wahine BB- watching channel 2 sports tonight- players mention “going through a lot” the past couple years… and the huge release of emotion and fighting spirit just makes that win the sweeter!

  205. Stephen Tsai March 1, 2009 10:47 pm

    OK, I’ll look for our readers in the Maniac section.

  206. d1ε³Ά March 1, 2009 10:50 pm

    Wait: Rachel Leigh Cook is on Psych.
    Wahine replay … Kazz?
    Replay, Kazz?
    What to do.
    Here’s Rachel Leigh Cook in the greatest PSA ever:

  209. al β„’ March 1, 2009 11:21 pm

    stretch gong back to your earlier posts. what you think only you and gigi have tv?

    jm007…. rai rai ramen remains one of our favorites. seafood ramen w/side gyoza. add chili oil.

  210. 99club March 1, 2009 11:22 pm


    Thanks for posting that PSA link…I agree that IS the best PSA ever. Subtle like a brick.

  211. Kazz (blkberry_storm) March 1, 2009 11:22 pm

    Touche ST… Touche… πŸ˜†

    However you can always see Rachel Leigh Cook, but a comeback win like this is not so easy to find.

    I’m recording this game and filing it with the many other UH “keepers”.

  212. al β„’ March 1, 2009 11:24 pm

    i actually watched the last ten minutes of the game. great job. keisha kanekoa can be on my team any day. talk about playing her heart out.

    did the refs realize we were the home team?

    i don’t know if pat charity will be give the reins. i was surprised to see mrs. bolla actually getting invovled in a positive way throughout the game.

  213. al β„’ March 1, 2009 11:26 pm

    is it just me?

    but, i read a lot into seeing vince goo, da houl, serena valdez sitting in the stands the other night. i still don’t know why hf didn’t retain vince. oh but, that was herman failure at it again.

  214. 99club March 1, 2009 11:27 pm

    Is that what heroin does? Then I guess I must be on heroin while watching UH mens basketball lately.

    I like to go home and throw things.

    Well, I saw the PSA and then I thought of … uh, never mind.

    I know it’s supposed to show support for an administrator to attend the game.
    But, c’mon, why bring a laptop?
    I mean, unless you’re filing a story or, well, writing a blog, why bring work to a game?
    That’s like bringing a book to somebody’s wedding reception.

    which administrator was she?

    ….help me out here in a moment of “duh-ness”. what is PSA?

  222. Stephen Tsai March 1, 2009 11:51 pm

    It was a guy.

    PSA = public service announcement.

    K, so that’s your friend sitting with you that I saw not Kazz, first in the Manoa Maniacs section & then behind the bench. I was across the way with my cousin & her husband. I think initially you were the only people sitting in the Manoa Maniacs section.

    John Estes, Blase, maybe Spencer Smith & another guy with a head of curly hair sat in the lower B section just across from us. Can’t mistake the wide-bodied guys.

    Night all!
