Oh, as in Oregon

EUGENE — We’re here.
The Warriors practiced today in the University of Oregon’s stadium, which is about a 40-minute drive from Oregon State’s campus.
The walk-through became a sprint-through. The Warriors were finished after 35 minutes.
After that, the Warriors took the Green Tour — green as in envy.
Money might not buy happiness, but it pays for Oregon’s state-of-the-art weight room.
The training room room looks ike a club, with egg-shell-white lighting and contemporary furniture.
There also is a machine stocked with energy drinks. The machine only accepts special “tokens.”
“Just like ours,” defensive coordinator Cal Lee said of the Ducks’ facilities. I don’t think “ours” referred to Saint Louis School’s.

The Warriors practiced today at Oregon’s stadium. They did not practice on Oregon State’s field.


Here are Malcolm Lane and Tyler Graunke:


Here’s the lovely Liz Chun:


The Oregon players have access to these refreshments. The machine only takes special “tokens.”


They can have their special machines with special refreshments. “Ferd” has this: a 42-ounce margarita.

SAN FRANCISCO — What?!? What?!?
I can’t hear you.
A woman with depth-perception problems ka-tooshed my head with her over-sized, “carry-on” bag, planting the ear bud deeper. She was trying to store her bag in the overhead compartment.
Know that “Seinfeld” episode where Elaine thinks she has a big head? And then a bird flies smack against her head? Well, my dear family keeps telling me that I’ve got a balloon head. And, sure enough, a woman is bouncing a carry-on off my head.
Even worse, she wasn’t in our row.
Or section.
We go to Portland after this, then make what apparently is a long drive to Eugene, where the Warriors are staying.
I know it will be a long drive because Robert Kekaula called yesterday to say: “Dude, it’s a long drive.”
Then he started laughing.
With my bad driving skills and Ferd’s navi-guessing, it should be interesting to see if we make it in time for the Warriors’ walk-through today. In the past, we’ve gotten lost in some neighborhoods that I recognized from episodes of “Cops.”

    Once upon a time it was important to win the third down conversion battle, and the time of possesion battle, but June Jones kind of blew that one out of the water years ago. He used to lose in both areas and still win ball games.

  15. Pride. September 12, 2008 4:32 am

    3. Gotta play great sudden change football.
    4. Gotta score everytime we get into the red zone.

  17. Pride. September 12, 2008 4:40 am

    Like James, Al, Koakane, and Kekoa said last night, we gotta go out and take control of the line of scrimmage right at the get go. We didn’t do that in the last game until the third quarter.

    Attitude is the key. You’ve got to have the right attitude to control the line of srimmage. Samson Satele had the right attitude in this area. Mike Lafaele had the right attitude also. Last week Josh Leonard exhibited the proper attitude in the third quarter. I told Koakane during the first half against Weber State that something was missing in the game. I told him later that I didn’t hear pads popping. We wanna hear pads popping from the start of the Oregon State game.

    Ok all you Tsaiko travelers who may be heading out on America’s Fwy. No git kracy! Da State Troopers in Oregon don’t like it wen you go 85 in a 70. Use your cruise control so you don’t creep over da limit.

Dats how we get doze tree and out moments dat will cause sudden change. Look at what happened when you made it happen last weekend!…Possesion!

    speaking of apples, one of my favorite lines from the Tony Soprano

    “How you like them Apples”

    not sure what he was referring to though

  41. Hilorain September 12, 2008 6:06 am


    It sounds like you’re planning to be in Corvallis for the walk through. Because Corvallis is located between Portland and Eugene, I suggest that you meet the team in Corvallis. The way it sounds now is that you’re going to drive to Eugene, passing Corvallis on the way, and then drive back 50 miles to Corvallis for the walk through.

    Committed Road Warrior

    The NY Times recently said that Portland was one of the top food destinations in the country. I don’t know about that, but yeah, we got good places to eat. There are some pretty good microbrews in the downtown area. Rogue has a place. Depends on what kind of food you want I guess. The Pearl district and NW 23rd both have great restaurants. “Silk” in the Pearl is pretty good Vietnamese, although I haven’t been there since they changed their name from Pho Van. Good Thai down there too. If you want good fish go to one of the McCormick and Schmicks’s places. There are two downtown.

    All the buses and rails are free in the downtown area so it is easy to explore a little. There is also Todai of course. Garret will probably be there all day today.

    The only kine food that isn’t so hot in the downtown area is Chinese for some reason. Got to go out to 82nd for that. I suggest microbrew.

  54. bighilofan2 September 12, 2008 7:09 am

    Coach Mack should make tun da dahn speech befo da game. go like

    “boyz, wen you go out dayah, tink ah da guy frum Hilo, tink how ugly he like make to da guy who stay holen up da Ching Field Fix. now, go out an make nice nice (wink wink)… grr..”

    ho boy, fo sure da Beaver gonna get a llllicking, an da fur cummin off!

    my o my, feelin like Stretch and James. 😀

    gonna be a great game!

    Go Warriors!

  55. expat September 12, 2008 7:13 am

    For folks with some extra time one of my favorite places is Bamboo Grove Hawaiian Grill. They used to be a Noho’s location (another good “local” eatery) but they bought them out something like 5-6 years ago. They are in the John’s Landing area just south of downtown. Good food and good drinks. Live Hawaiian music Fridays and Saturdays (most Thursdays too but that was yesterday).

    Another fun place is Salvador Molly’s. They have two locations. They are kind of Pan-Caribbean although they also have Kalua pig. We call it pirate food. If you think you are tough order their habanero cheese fritters, the Great Balls of Fire. As you weep your way through the fifth one you can realign your ego by looking up on the wall at the snapshots of the smiling 13 year old girls taken right after they have polished of their plates. Eat the whole plate yourself you get your photo on the wall.

  56. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc September 12, 2008 7:18 am

    BHF2 – I’ll be at DCCA this afternoon inspecting documents. The morning will be spent at DLNR and DOT – Harbors Division for another project. Will call to let you know what I find at DCCA.

    Are you coming over Saturday am? If so, we’ll pick you up at the airport since we’ll be going near it to get out to Ige’s. Afterwards, we’re going to go vote and then head on down to Murphy’s or Eastside Grill to watch the Ohio State v. USC game before the volleyball games at the SSC.

  57. bighilofan2 September 12, 2008 7:29 am

    Go Warriors!

  58. FloridaTed September 12, 2008 7:42 am

    Morning, Tsaiko-Nation and Tsai-Meister,

    St, I can relate to the big head syndrome, God gave me the head of 6’2″ guy and put it on a 5’7″ frame.

    This game will be huge for us, it is not make or brake totally, but vital as a set-up game for the season to come. It will build confidence and believe, a good win will erase all doubts.

    I think our Warriors will be as ready as can be.

    The Beavers will come out with huge passion and the adrenaline flowing like crazy, but if we can weather that initial onslaught, it will actually work against them. Adrenaline wearing off is almost a little like a tranquilizer.

    We can not afford to fall behind quickly, but the D must stuff them out of the gate, that will deflate them and the crowd. Well, sounds all good in theory.

    GO WARRIORS!!!!!

  59. Bulla September 12, 2008 7:42 am

    g’morning all,

    Pride, you’re right, control the line of scrimmage. last week, in the 1st half, the O line did not do a good job of that. and this week they have Ginlack going back to Lt. Guard? i hope they can patch the pukas up quickly.

    we’ll be cheering for the WARRIORS on Saturday, no conflict of interest this time, haha.


    the 2nd cheer for Wildcats goes out to d1’s @ 2 at Linfield!!!

  60. Bulla September 12, 2008 7:45 am

    speaking of large domes….i certainly qualify, and when flying on planes, (what other flying is there you idiot bulla) i always lean to the inside with both hands in a ready to protect position when i am sitting on the aisle seats. too many seniors traveling that believe they can put 30 lbs. of junk in a 10 lb. suitcase…ouch

    (BHF2, I aint touchin’ your line of Beaver humor this morning.)

    Plenny folks up bright and early today. 🙂

    Tsai and Ted, I too share the curse of the oversized cranium. To bad I dint get an extra share of common sense to go with that.

    I hope that Rego takes up where he left off, and Tyler goes ballistic makin’ up for lost time. I hope we see that 40 yd. beauty from LWJ.

    I think that we started to see the real personality of our team during the second half last week. If that same team shows up wif a fire in their belly, we gonna do good.

  63. Kekoa (Survivor-WB) September 12, 2008 7:57 am

    BC’s show is broadcasting live from the Hilton hotel in Eugene with he and RK on the mic. Coach Mack talking about the sense of family he experiences in Hawaii, but really appreciates the fact that the weather is a lot more pleasant…and that makes it a bit easier to recruit.

  65. addahknowjoe September 12, 2008 8:10 am

    Gmornin Everybody!

    ST- Sorry! Sorry! Sorry! It was all a joke that sorta went bad. That was my friend that plunked you square in your head.

    She called earlier in the day to tell me she was heading to the bay area to visit family and asked if there was anything sports related going up there. I asked why. She said there’s a guy from the Advertiser that’s on my flight. He’s the guy that writes that sports column.

    I said, “wait- Stephen Tsai?”

    She said, “Who? No, no, no. The other guy. The one that flipped his name to be different.”

    I said, “uuhhh… Ferd?”

    She said, “Yeah, yeah. Him. The tall guy.”

    So I asked if there’s a short stocky Asian guy with glasses next to Ferd.

    She says, “you mean the geeky guy who seems lost and holding Ferd’s arm? Yeah.”

    I then ask if she could tell you I said, “howzit” and to call me back and tell me how it went.

    A few hours later she calls me from the mainland to tell me the story. She said she wanted to talk with you in the HNL waiting area but you seemed preoccupied and didn’t want to be bothered. So, she figured maybe later. As luck would have it, while boarding the plane she saw you in an aisle seat. She said you were looking right at her so she smiled. You smiled. She figured hey, it should be easy to talk with you. But, as she got closer, she soon realized you weren’t looking at her face but, staring directly at her chest! Ho brah, she was livid!

    She stopped right in front of you. As you continued to stare she slowly raised her bag about chest high, stepped forward and plugged you with a two arm thrust of “carry on” right into your noggin! She said she knew she got you square cause your head recoiled like a bobblehead. And the fact the cabin gasped on impact.

    On the flight over she wondered why would you stare at her chest. There’s really nothing to see. She then thought maybe you were just day dreaming. Oh gawd, she felt sick. She wanted to apologize to you when the plane landed but, you were gone before she could even unbuckle her seat belt. She wanted to tell you she truly apologizes and hopes she didn’t give you whiplash.

    Morning Tsaikos!

    Enjoyed the volleyball match last night! If we had sat in our actual seats 2 rows up, we would have never met a couple of WB lurkers who sat next to us.

    A big hello to Nathan & his daughter Nancy!

    Thanks for asking if we were Tsaikos & for not kicking us out of your seats!


  68. Beaveready September 12, 2008 8:22 am

    Funny thread here. This beat writer is pretty comical. Kinda like ours too. Dont be serious, thats a drag all the time.

    Im ready for a good game. Beaver fans are ready for a blow out after stan squeaked on us and Penn state ate our lunch. But I think it will be a close game. Too many questions on the defense for the Beavs right now.

    I want an exciting game and i think the beavs will improve more if they have to play all 4 quarters so go rainbows! (until the final gun blows)

    Oh yeah about guns. If you are enroute this way stay on the main roads. Oregonians are a decent bunch but we have guns like crazy and dont really argue much, just feel threatened and start shooting. Especially in the rural areas. Still safer than parts of your state though. I had a friend of mine in high school her mom disappeared in Maui when she was jogging. they found her all raped and tore up dead in a cane field. That stuff can happen anywhere I guess.

    Somebody was asking about PDX RESTAURANTS. I am here to help.
    Stay away from nearly everything that was suggested in the post above. No offense at the effort. But those chain places blow.

    Better going here for Seafood:


    Here for meat n stuff: (think HUGE, succulent onion rings, best in da world)


    here is noho’s since someone mentioned it. (it used to be great but I dont know anymore if its good.


    Game prediction: Beavs 38-Rainbows35 in a fantastic exciting contest.

  75. Kelli September 12, 2008 8:35 am

    Holy moly! Portland to Eugene?!?! That’s far. Give it about 2 hours, maybe more with traffic. My dad drove me to Eugene when I was visiting UO in 2005. That was a nice ride full of nothing. Poor dad was getting tired and I didn’t have my license yet. My napping in the car probably didn’t up much. Oops!

    Jason: From yesterday’s post, news is trying really hard. I’m gonna have to start getting a story in every week at the editor-in-chief’s request. Ha, we’ll see about that. I’m a slow poke.

    This is sort of off topic but I got a letter from Chancellor Hinshaw….I know it’s a form letter to alumni but I thought it was well written and truly believe she was the right choice for Manoa Chancellor. I’m posting her letter here in case anyone is interested in what her vision for Manoa is….if not, please skip.


    The new academic year is beginning at UH Mānoa and thousands of new and returning students are back on campus to pursue their educational goals. This is always my favorite time of year because of the energy and enthusiasm the students generate – working with them is truly a great joy and privilege for all of us at UH Mānoa. I also have the joy of interacting with so many of our over 155,000 Mānoa alumni, as well as our many friends – you are a member of a very impressive group of folks!

    This year has a very special aspect – it is the beginning of UH Mānoa’s second century. I am grateful that my first year serving as UH Mānoa’s chancellor coincided with the celebration of the university’s centennial – a time when we honored the past, celebrated the present and envisioned the future. Working together, we have the opportunity to set the stage for our second century – one that holds the promise of greatness. Our state and our students deserve our shared commitment to realizing that promise.

    To achieve the promise of greatness, I believe UH Mānoa must excel as: a destination of choice for students, faculty, staff, the community and beyond; a leading global research university solving society’s problems; and, a respectful, inclusive community that nurtures diversity.

    I am deeply impressed with those who have made Mānoa their destination of choice. That certainly includes our students, who are our future – a strong motivator for our faculty and staff who strive to ensure that students are well prepared to succeed and contribute to the well-being of our state and our world. It is a privilege to see many examples that illustrate our students’ abilities to contribute and excel.

    This year, students have taken the lead on “Sustainable Saunders,” a collaborative effort among faculty and students to pursue workplace sustainability. Students started by installing Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFLs) in Saunders Hall. A small Vertical Axis Wind Turbine was donated and has been installed to provide an opportunity for students to study the potential of wind-generated power in an urban environment. This project is raising awareness and assisting the campus in ensuring that we use natural resources in the most effective, sustainable manner possible.

    Our students are making their own scientific breakthroughs as well. Just one great example is senior Tiffany Baring. She won first prize at the national convention of the American Association of Anatomists for her research that suggests the existence of a previously unknown gene regulating brain development and tumor formation. I encourage you to learn more about what is happening at your university by visiting our recently revised and refreshed Web site: http://manoa.hawaii.edu.

    Our campus is fortunate to have students both from Hawai‘i and from around the world. Students have told me that a great attribute of UH Mānoa is the multicultural global experience they share during their time here – on the campus and in Hawai‘i. I am convinced that the learning environment at Mānoa prepares them well – both to compete in any situation and to be responsible local and global citizens. Our state and our world need such leaders for the future.

    As a land, sea and space grant institution, our mission is to solve society’s problems, and research plays a major role in meeting that mission. Our research enterprise continues to be robust and impressive and serves Hawai‘i in many ways – generating advances that improve our lives and creating future careers for our students. Our researchers produce new knowledge at a rapid pace, ranging from discovering a link between the loss of smell and the onset of Parkinson’s disease in men to determining the mass of the coldest class of “failed stars” using ultra sharp images from the Keck Telescope and Hubble Space Telescope, to enhancing cultural understanding through international partnerships, to utilizing algae for biofuel production and the list goes on. Such advances are critical to improving the future for our children and grandchildren.

    Our faculty and staff are the core of our university and many are recognized both locally and internationally for their significant contributions. Mānoa has benefited from strong faculty and staff and that has been the foundation of our first century of excellence. We do recognize, however, that faculty, students and staff need a physical environment that supports their learning and research efforts, and UH Mānoa does have challenges in that regard. I frequently state that “UH Mānoa is a jewel in many ways, particularly intellectually, but is badly tarnished physically.” Restoring the luster to our flagship campus is my highest priority because I realize that it cuts across all of the goals I mentioned earlier.

    The good news is that we can address this issue and are starting to make progress in that regard. A great example is our ‘new’ Frear Hall – the first new residence hall at UH Mānoa since the mid-’70s. The first residents – 810 students – moved into this beautiful facility on August 23. In June we began the renovation of the Campus Center, which, when fully completed, will provide our students with a much-improved gathering place – and truly a ‘center’ to our mauka campus. The Clarence T.C. Ching Foundation is helping transform our makai campus, creating a space for intramural competition, band and cheerleading practice. It will serve as the back-up football practice field, host track and field competition and welcome community events.

    Looking forward, one of the immediate challenges we are facing, along with all of Hawai‘i, is a softening economy and budget cuts. To handle this challenge, we are not planning to “do more with less,” but rather “better with less.” At the same time, we are actively seeking to increase revenues from other sources to support our ability to serve Hawai‘i.

    In closing, we enter our second century with a strong sense of optimism. I do believe that this time is truly our “Mānoa Moment,” and our actions now will define a bright future for UH Mānoa. Our university is woven into the fabric of Hawai‘i – from our athletic teams to our alumni to our new freshman students (the “graduating class of 2012”). There is much to celebrate and there is much yet to do. Mahalo for staying connected with your university and enabling UH Mānoa to serve society in the best way possible.

    With much aloha,

    Virginia S. Hinshaw

    Great Morning All!

    Reading the comments so far this morning really gets me wishing I was heading over for the game. Oh well, it’ll make the Boise trip that much more satisfying.

    Good comments Pride.

    Hope you can make it over. Miracles do happen! 🙂

    Thanks for all the help. Enjoy yourself. (Like you need to be reminded of that!)

    Have a great day erryboddy!

  78. d1島 September 12, 2008 8:45 am

    Oh wait.


    Too funny! 😆

    Hi Beaveready. Welcome to the blog!

  80. Ronnie September 12, 2008 8:52 am

    For our Warriors and Tsaikos, just a reminder:


  81. lab rat September 12, 2008 8:52 am

    Roast those furry little buggas.

  82. Addahknowsports September 12, 2008 8:53 am


    You deserve more than the ends and pieces. You getting da meat. But going have to be one different batch.


    Some day you and I will sit down and swig a bottle…150 proof…da bes’.

    GOOOOOOOOOO Warriors!

  83. WarriorX808 September 12, 2008 8:55 am

    The drive from Portland to Eugene is about 4 hours.

  84. Bulla September 12, 2008 8:56 am


    now THAT is the rest of the story………..

    ST, hmmmmmmmmm, we need to talk……let me tell you, gravity humbles all………nuf sed

    Chawan – awesome job, no props from the local tv guys, but hard when a freshman is making da guys all shame on da field. great job, the beast will be grateful….

    have a good day Tsaikos, had a nice blurb on the L&L show this morning with kanoa and pops, talking about SL vs. Puns tomorrow night, and they asked my about Ryan……nice time

  85. Kekoa (Survivor-WB) September 12, 2008 9:01 am

    d1 ~ Whats da latest on #2?

  86. SteveM September 12, 2008 9:01 am

    Good morning everyone! I woke up early too and was reading the posts and examining/updating the Tsai-ko OSU game page.

    Glad WarriorMojo can attend, but I think only Stretch, g-nalo, and wafan might be able to recognize our camera-shy friend on sight. Don’t want a repeat of the San Jose game last year when WarriorMojo is waving to everyone but nobody know who he is… 😕

    Along the same lines, we have 8 Tsai-kos staying at the same hotel tonight: Stretch, g-nalo, sleez, brew808, wafan, izzy, BNS, and WarriorMojo. At least everyone’s got Stretch’s real name… maybe check with him since email might not be available to some.

    Have a great time folks! I do not recall this many Tsai-ko’s congregating for a regular season away game since Las Vegas 2007.

    If the Oregon Tsai-kos have web access, I’ll try to keep the Tsai-ko Away Game page current through this evening. Use the blog for last minute changes/announcements too.


  87. Loa September 12, 2008 9:07 am

    Asports – are you sure you only drinking vanilla?

    Ajoe – nice story

    (J)J – i read about halfway thru 76 until i thought to myself it looked familiar then i realized i must have got the same letter, what a dumb arse

    must be aloha friday, i running low on oil, 🙂

  88. Beaveready September 12, 2008 9:10 am

    Warriorx808: portland airport to eugene is really about 2.5 hours in regular traffic. But it is right down the heart of the valley so its perfectly flat, perfectly straight with not so much to look at. Its the most boring part of the state. And the interstate goes right down the middle of it!

    So it guess it will seem like 4 hours.

    But on the upside the weather is perfect- about 85, no humidity clear blue skies, clean air. drive with the windows down!

  89. SteveM September 12, 2008 9:18 am

    Warriorx808 — do you reside outside of Hawaii ? If so, please tell us your city. Are you a UH fan?

    Beaveready — what city/town do you reside in?

    Welcome to the blog! I will add you to the Mainland and International Tsai-ko bloggers list at:


  90. djmitcho September 12, 2008 9:18 am

    Well, I wish I was headed to Oregon today, but cannot. At least Boise is da plans. I’m already looking forward to next year’s Idaho and Wash. St. game when it’s just a quick drive down to the palouse.

  91. go bows September 12, 2008 9:19 am

    Too funny Tsai. Nearly spit out my coffee in laughter reading your exploits. Go Bows, kick some Beaver butt.

  92. Paoa Boy September 12, 2008 9:21 am


  93. al September 12, 2008 9:29 am

    asports…..just kidding.

  94. Beaveready September 12, 2008 9:30 am

    stevem I live in portland.

    djmitcho “quick drive” to the Palouse LOL. I wish i could tell you otherwise but Wazzoo is so far out “there” that I have never even been to a ballgame there. And i have been to almost every other pac ten stadium. Apparently to get there you have to first drive to the end of the earth and then turn right and go another 30 miles. In real terms if i get on a plane to Honolulu right now I would be on the beach 2 hours before I even got within spitting distance of pullman if I were driving there.

    They say that corvallis is off the beaten path?

  95. djmitcho September 12, 2008 9:35 am

    I live in Spokane, so it’s a quick 1 1/2 hour drive south for me.

  96. WarriorMojo September 12, 2008 9:36 am

    Alright, finally found this Radisson PDX. It’s close to the airport, true, but it AIN’T easy to find. At least they have free parking and free wireless internet like all Radissons

    Gosh, I am SO AMPED for this game. The dirty rodents are going down, down DOWN!! Jeremy Perry can kiss my ass! Al Afalava better cancel his summer plans. Tavita Thompson better learn that Hawaii is the BEST place to live in the entire world, not just a “rock”. Stupid mofos. Screw ANYBODY who puts Hawaii down!! Rise up! RIse up, Warrior Nation! Hawaii NO KAI OI! IMUA HAWAII!

  97. WarriorMojo September 12, 2008 9:38 am

    With my bad driving skills and Ferd’s navi-guessing, it should be interesting to see if we make it in time for the Warriors’ walk-through today.

    You’re KILLING me, ST! WHat time and Where is the walk through?

  98. chawan_cut September 12, 2008 9:41 am

    The twins midori7 and UHfan808 are famous! The lurker said, “Hey, aren’t you Tsai-kos???” haha.
    oh, and thanks to them for sponsoring this forgetful fool last night who left his wallet at home.

  99. SteveM September 12, 2008 9:42 am

    Thank you, Beaveready. I will add you as a visiting Oregon fan. Again, welcome to the blog, and we hope you will visit us often, especially if UH and OSU start playing regularly!

  100. iwonderwhytheyhateme September 12, 2008 9:44 am

    morning morning ya’ll. great news about LWJ. cant wait for the game.

    go warriors!

  101. WarriorMojo September 12, 2008 9:44 am

    Stupid Alaska airlines lost my bag between Las Vegas and Portland. Why? Because I checked in too early for my 8:00 am flight. When I got to check in, it wasn’t even open yet. Why did I get there so early? Because the parents believe that the right time for a hotel wake up call is at 4:00 am for a 8:00 flight.

    None of this matters except that my UH Warrior car flag was in that bag. Need that baby flying proudly ALL the way down to Corvallis. Let the beavs know that the WARRIORS are coming to SACK and PILLAGE! Let’s go!

  102. iwonderwhytheyhateme September 12, 2008 9:47 am

    hey tsaikos. what would be your dream non-conference schedule for Hawaii?

    i would love the chance to play LSU and Ohio St. in one year haha

  103. WarriorMojo September 12, 2008 9:47 am

    When I was picking up my rental car, the service agent asked if I was here for the game. When I told him I was, he says “I hope you guys kill them!” And then his buddy says, “There’s a ton of you guys going down for that game, huh?” They were both Duckies.

  104. d1島 September 12, 2008 9:54 am


    Howzit. Can you please tell us how you REALLY feel? 😆

    Thanks for asking. They should be airborne right now for DFW. Hoping that the flt gets in ahead of any effects of Ike. Hopefully no white-knuckle ride.
    They bus to Abilene tonite and play tomorrow. Gametime got pushed up by 4 hours to 1400 local (0900 HST).

  105. d1島 September 12, 2008 9:57 am

    Most importantly. Did he upgrade you?

  106. Beaveready September 12, 2008 9:58 am

    Warriormojo you probably scared him. Duckies are easily intimidated. Which is why you wont see them on your schedule any time soon.

  107. d1島 September 12, 2008 10:01 am

    Welcome to the Warrior Beat.
    Were you able to come to Hawaii with the team in ’06?

  108. (Jesse) James September 12, 2008 10:03 am

    Warrior Mojo…yeah, in-state rivals are awesome…I don’t know what is worse, being a duck or beaver….MWAHAHAHAHA

  109. djmitcho September 12, 2008 10:03 am

    Wow, get one OSU fan on the blog and I can feel the “Civil War” in the air.

  110. Beaveready September 12, 2008 10:07 am

    No I wasn’t able to make it over for that game. Woulda liked that one.

  111. Beaveready September 12, 2008 10:11 am

    Its bad for everybody that Perry isnt playing. He would be so pumped that I think the police would have to be called in to investigate a rainbow manslaughter.

  112. WarriorMojo September 12, 2008 10:13 am

    D1, alas, no upgrade. Oh, and just so it’s clear, the guy who rolled twelve points wasn’t me. I don’t think I’ve ever made more than three. But that guy saved my okole big time. Actually, not that big, because I’m real small time. Now Stretch on the other hand…

    (J)J, yeah, I was thinking just that. Too bad UH Hilo doesn’t field a team. Except an in-state rivalry in Hawaii would nasty year round.

    Beaveready, LOL, that was a good one. It is really neat to see the deep-seated rivalries in college football.

    And, hey FISH! Where are you? This is the time when you are supposed to be blogging all the time from Salem.

  113. WarriorMojo September 12, 2008 10:14 am

  114. d1島 September 12, 2008 10:18 am

    No doubt that Perry brings a lot of ‘tude with his game. That doesn’t go unnoticed by people from Hawaii.
    btw, the team hasn’t gone by Rainbows for several years (although you’ll probably still hear more than an occasional “Go Bows” yelled out of habit).


  115. d1島 September 12, 2008 10:20 am


    Was wondering if that was at a Harrah’s property? I’d love to ride along on one of those rolls with a Fire Bet in play! cha-ching!

  116. Jason September 12, 2008 10:22 am

    Beaveready: Warriors, not Rainbows. Warriors. 😛

  117. SteveM September 12, 2008 10:23 am

    WarriorMojo — did you bring your Tsai-ko shirt with you? If so, wear it tonight and at breakfast tomorrow so other Tsai-kos can spot you 🙂 …then you can change into another shirt for the game.

    You’re right– I don’t recall seeing fish since the blog was changed over to this format.

  118. Lady who hit Mr. Tsai September 12, 2008 10:28 am

    I would like to apologise for hitting you with my bag today.
    I thought that you were staring at my chest and smiling but
    could not understand why you would be looking at my 32AA’s.

    On reaching the taxi stand, the driver informed me that I had a
    sticker of an chilidog on my chest, my daughter must have put it there as a joke.
    I’m sure the bag hitting your head must of hurt, the souvenir metal ashtray I had in the bag was severley dented.

  119. Rob25 September 12, 2008 10:29 am

    Warriormojo – Stop holding back your emotions so much!!

    It was nice to see Kim, Kanoe, Kari…*wow lots of K’s*…at the volleyball game last night. Continue to be impressed with Kanani Herring. That girl has some skills. Does she play basketball?

  120. Ronnie September 12, 2008 10:30 am

    By the way, when June changed the name to the Warriors, why didn’t someone register the change with the NCAA? Was that the job of the AD? Or was it because not all the coaches adopted the change? The NCAA still lists the nicknames for UH as Rainbow Warriors and Rainbow Wahine.

  121. (Jesse) James September 12, 2008 10:32 am

    Just wanted to remind everyone as well that the TV Gate for the next away game, which will be broadcast at 10:00 a.m., has been scheduled. So, for all you local fans who are not able to join Stretch and his merry band on the road to Corvalis, here are the details:

    UH vs. OSU
    Saturday, September 13, 2008
    10:00 a.m.

    Ige’s Restaurant and 19th Puka
    98-761 Oihana Pl
    Aiea, HI 96701
    (808) 486-3500

    Just found out that the will open at 9:00 a.m. I will get there a little earlier because they do not take reservations no matter how big your party is. I would appreciate it if a couple people could get there early as well so we can save a big enough area for all who are attending.

    According to Ige’s, they will serve some breakfast stuff, but will have mostly lunch and pupus. It is also being sponsored by Bud Light so I am assuming Bud Light girls will be there and they may have some specials (KK, that’s right up your alley). There will also be a contest for the Ultimate Warrior Fan. Per Ige’s, “Three lucky winners will receive tickets for the 2009 UH vs. UNLV game. The theme is the Ultimate Warrior Fan so come dressed to impress and unleash your inner Ultimate Warrior.” Not sure what that’s all about but I’ll put it out there.

    Anyway, if you plan on coming to the event, please RSVP me at jgo8464822@aol.com so that we can save enough seats. People are always welcomed to just stop by but it would be good if we had a rough estimate of the number attending so that enough room can be made.

    Also, you can check Steve M’s website for details.


  122. Pride. September 12, 2008 10:36 am

    Sooooo Warrior Mojo, who do you think is going to win Saturday’s game between Hawaii and Oregion State? I apologize if you alrady told us, but I was working and wasn’t lurking so didn’t get to read or see how you feel about the game?

  123. d1島 September 12, 2008 10:37 am


    Thanks for the reminder.
    Sorry, won’t be able to make it. With the change in game time in TX, we need to be near a computer to listen in.

  124. Pride. September 12, 2008 10:38 am

    If I was a quarterback and had Kazz and Warrior Mojo as my two guards, I don’t think anyone would touch me, ever.

  125. LizKauai (iPhone) September 12, 2008 10:45 am

    hiya! I agree about better places to eat but not cheap, quickly and close to PDX. Cruising for cuisine is a veritable feast here!
    Pau baby checkup and time for lunch!

  126. Kazz September 12, 2008 10:45 am


    September 12th, 2008 at 10:30 am
    By the way, when June changed the name to the Warriors, why didn’t someone register the change with the NCAA? Was that the job of the AD? Or was it because not all the coaches adopted the change? The NCAA still lists the nicknames for UH as Rainbow Warriors and Rainbow Wahine.

    Ronnie, in my infinite paranoia of the mainland media, I suspect the “Warriors” name is noted with the NCAA and media outlets there (the UH media guide clearly states the football team is “Warriors” only) and the references to “Rainbows” is not a tip of the hat to the past tradition of UH, but more of a JAB at us.

    But again that’s just crazy/paranoid/angry/defensive me. 🙂

  127. Kazz September 12, 2008 10:45 am


    Make no mistake sir, Mojo and I shall defend the backfield!!!!

  128. Pride. September 12, 2008 10:49 am

    Of course Kazz, we all know that Jason would beat me out at quarterback, so I actually would be on the sideline with the clipboard watching you block for him.

  129. Ronnie September 12, 2008 10:50 am

    Kazz – I share your paranoia, but here’s what I used as a guide: http://www.ncaa.org/hall_of_champions/global/nicknames/nickname_list.htm

  130. Ronnie September 12, 2008 10:53 am

    Since it seems that a team’s nickname can be whatever the team wants it to be, I say we register the change with the NCAA and let the teams that still want to be rainbow Warriors add rainbow to the offical nickname! I know it seems petty, but…

  131. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 10:56 am

    Pride. – I have experience being on the side so I’ll teach you some bench etiquette.


  132. XxFaithxX September 12, 2008 10:57 am

    The NCAA still has UH football as the Rainbow Warriors because the Atheltic department did not change it.

    Got Markus Owens pissed one day when I called about that and questioned why they have not changed it LOL

  133. d1島 September 12, 2008 10:58 am

    Mmmmm…. 😛
    The cake must be ready by now!

  134. Addahknowsports September 12, 2008 11:03 am

    asports…..just kidding.

    al – when it comes to food, I don’t kid around.

    hehehe. j/k

    Okay, gangie. We just had a pick-up. Apple walnut coffeecake is on its way. I packed a little something on the side for Stretch and the boys so Stretch’s sweet tooth doesn’t tempt him and the boys don’t frisk him. Bwahaha.

  135. Pomai September 12, 2008 11:07 am

    Ronnie thats just the NCAA doing there normal thing, they can’t get anything right either!!!!

  136. KonaGirl September 12, 2008 11:17 am

    Aloha Ronnie and Kazz –

    Real quick…on my way to a meeting, but in reference to the Rainbow Warrior name…read Chapter 10 in Hawai’i Warrior Football book from last year….you know, the JJ one. Anyway, it explains it all…the why’s and how’s…

    Aloha…GO WARRIORS!!!

  137. Rob25 September 12, 2008 11:19 am

    Ronnie – Can you have the boys make an “Aloha Rob25” sign for the Fresno game? Let’s see if we can get that one on TV also.

  138. Ronnie September 12, 2008 11:21 am

    Hi Rob!

    That’s a great idea about the sign! I say we do it!

  139. SteveM September 12, 2008 11:25 am

    Ronnie and Rob25 — how about a “Hi Tsai-kos” sign too for those of us at home? 🙂

  140. WarriorMojo September 12, 2008 11:27 am

    Pride., I know I speak for Kazz when I say we would be honored to have jobs as your protectors. Of course no DE or LB is going to be dumb enough to mess with you, so Kazz and I will have it pretty easy.

    D1, was actually at Treasure Island of all places. And it was a GREAT ride. This is one of those times you dream about when you want something across the board. Inside, outside, hardways, comes, the guy was in a zone. But my problem is that I ALWAYS pull. I’m chicken like that. I gotta learn to press, especially after you hit a couple because then it’s on the house.And the only reason I know it was twelve points is because the guy next to me was one of those mathematician types. He kept saying stuff like “Well, that’s six in a row. The odds of him making another one are really against him now.” But the guy kept going. And people kept trying to squeeze in at the table, but the dealers were all hissy, “Sorry, no more room. We’re all full.”

    ASports, what time is Stretch’s flight? I guess I’m not gonna wait for them for dinner.

    Rise up! Rise up, Warrior Nation! The hour is upon you! The moment is here! Rise up and seize the glory that awaits you!

  141. Dennis Halloran September 12, 2008 11:27 am

    I noticed that former UH recruit from the big island, Gabe Tatua, is now at Mt Sac JC, playing WR at 5’5″ 170. Had 5 catches for 117 in his first game as a Soph transfer from Pasadena CC. One fumble also. OC is Tom Craft former SD State HC

  142. Beaveready September 12, 2008 11:29 am

    Warriors it is then. Rainbows is a dumb name for a sports team so I welcome that change. No beaver jokes!

  143. al September 12, 2008 11:29 am

    i will bet that the little something is some kind of musubi.

  144. Rob25 September 12, 2008 11:33 am

    I wish someone would make me a sign for the OSU game…hint,hint…Stretch, Liz, Gnalo, Sleaze, wafan, izzy…anyone?

    Yes, Steve, we will have to make one for all of the Tsai-kos. I can just hear the cheer now across the Tsaiko nation. You think that it would be in poor taste to wave a sign that says “Hit the road ‘Dogs/Puppies” as they are leaving because they are being blown out?

  145. al September 12, 2008 11:35 am

    its been awhile since i’ve seen warriormojo so worked up about a game.
    that k blood is boiling today.
    hey wait a minute….it was only last season that he was getting all worked up too.

  146. (Jesse) James September 12, 2008 11:35 am

    al…with Stretch and his gang…nothing is ever a “little” something….unless homey is with them…MWAHAHAHAHAHA

  147. Addahknowsports September 12, 2008 11:36 am


    Stretch didn’t say what time the flight was.

    Cwaps, huh?

  148. al September 12, 2008 11:38 am

    beaveready….i was gonna hold back on this. in fact, i have been restraining myself for a few hours.

    but, seriously why would a football team want to be called beavers?
    girls volleyball, yah.
    but, not in football.
    there’s no beavers in football.

  149. Kekoa (iPhone) September 12, 2008 11:39 am

    If Ronnie’s boyz goin’ make one sign for Rob 25. It will prolly say, “Aloha Rob 25” on one side…and “Send Manapua!” on the other.

  150. Kazz September 12, 2008 11:40 am

    I wonder if it’s too much humbug for the NCAA to make for more than two nicknames for schools.

    Still it would be nice for a simple:

    “Warriors” for all kane programs and “Rainbow Wahine” for all wahine programs.

    I believe JD said that this should be a reality soon, but of course he does have MORE pressing issues to deal with first.

  151. Kazz September 12, 2008 11:42 am


    Hmmm.. I almost finished reading that book, but for some odd reason I stopped reading it around the middle of January 2008… :twised:

  152. The Real Head Plunker September 12, 2008 11:42 am

    Hey, who’s that impostor pretending to be me? I’m the real head-plunker and I’m standing up. All I was doing was trying to stow my bag in the overhead, but the lid wouldn’t shut because Tsai’s big head was blocking the way. I would have put it away in my own section, but again Tsai’s head was taking up all the space. People had to fold themselves over their laps just to fit into their seats. I tried to apologize to Steve, but when he turned to look at me, the plane veered north. Two words, Mr. Tsai: Charter Flight.

  153. Kazz September 12, 2008 11:42 am

    😈 – twisted

  154. WarriorMojo September 12, 2008 11:46 am

    Al, really now, even I gotta admit that seeing me worked up isn’t that unusual. BUT, I have been waiting for this game since 2006 when the beavs ruined the “greatest UH season ever”. Seeing the anguish in Colt’s eyes after he skipped that last pass still haunts me. I was sick to death that night and for several days thereafter. I’m glad we were able to take it out on ASU in the bowl game, but the stinking beavs NEED to know that feeling first hand. ESPECIALLY the Hawaii beavs.

  155. BowsForever September 12, 2008 11:48 am

    Is Oceanic blacking out the Fox Sports live feed of the Oregon State game somehow? The TV listings still say it’ll be on live for all cable subscribers.

  156. Rob25 September 12, 2008 11:50 am

    My thoughts exactly WM!

    al –

    there’s no beavers in football.

    Somehow, it just comes out wrong. hehe

  157. addahknowjoe September 12, 2008 11:59 am


    I want you and your attitude on my side in any court of law!

  158. BowsForever September 12, 2008 12:01 pm

    Hey, let’s keep it civil guys. In fairness, Colt made some critical mistakes in the OSU game (I was there), and even though he threw for 74% (looking at the old recaps), he had 2 picks and only 2 TDs despite 400+ passing yards. Add in the six sacks and OSU capitalizing on opportunities, and you ended up with a bad night by Colt and the Warriors.

  159. BowsForever September 12, 2008 12:03 pm

    I was mad as hell about the loss too, btw.

  160. Committed Road Warrior September 12, 2008 12:03 pm


    Finally in Portland. Checked in to my hotel room downtown. The only thing I have to do now is NOT fall asleep before sundown because if I do, then I gonna be up all night. Thanks to everyone for the food suggestions…..though knowing my luck I’ll just end up hitting something nearby because I’m too lazy or tired to walk somewhere else.

    Early this morning I just stuffed some clothes in a duffel bag and off to the airport I went. With regards to UH gear, I think I only brought one (1) UH green shirt and my green UH visor…..I’m looking in my duffel bug and that’s all I see in addition to an additional pair of shorts, two pairs of long pants and a red shirt. So for tonight it’s whatever I have on and my UH visor.

  161. GGma September 12, 2008 12:05 pm

    Garrett and Stretch and any of the other Tsaikos that are going to the game ,If you see a tall greyhaired man who looks like Joshua Leonard will you give him a MALALA!! I might not have spelled that right but I know you get my point. He will be at all of the games on the mainland.He knows all about you Guys from me Thank you. ROAST THE BEAVERS!!!!

  162. Izzy September 12, 2008 12:10 pm

    Committed Road Warrior:

    Hope that wasn’t a complete list. Sounded like you’re going cammando.

  163. Izzy September 12, 2008 12:11 pm

    cammando = commando.

    (Where’s sepll cheek when you need it?)

  164. Committed Road Warrior September 12, 2008 12:13 pm

    Izzy: Of course it wasn’t a complete list. I figured everyone packed extra underwear…..or do they???? 🙂

  165. Ronnie September 12, 2008 12:13 pm

    Beaveready – so how do you feel about yearly home and home games with the Warriors?

  166. d1島: September 12, 2008 12:14 pm

    My message to the Secondary:

    History WILL be repeated…. BUT switched, I can see it now:

    A post following the game:

    September 14th, 2008 at 12:01 pm
    Hey, let’s keep it civil guys. In fairness, Moevao made some critical mistakes in the OSU game, and even though he threw for 64%, he had 4 picks and only 2 TDs despite 300+ passing yards. Add in the six sacks and HAWAII capitalizing on opportunities, and you ended up with a bad night by Moevao and the Beavers.


  170. Mike September 12, 2008 12:16 pm

    >(Whatever happened to Vonnegut?)

    Alas, he resides permanently in Tralfamador. So it goes…

  171. WarriorMojo September 12, 2008 12:19 pm

    AJoe, you got it, my brother.

    BowsForever, I don’t know what is not being civil about it. I want to destroy the beavs in the worst way during the game, but it’s not like I want them all to be maimed or something. I agree that Hawaii didn’t play anything close to a complete game in 2006 and the beavs capitalized. That’s what a good team does and the beavs were definitely a good team at the end of 2006 when we played them unlike what they were when they played Boise at the beginning of 2006. But that doesn’t mean the memory of Dorian Smith and Sammie Stroughter are not forever burned into my mind as villains of the worst kind.

    GGma, will do, definitely! But if this fellow doesn’t immediately smile back, I’m going to run away crying like a little baby, because your Joshua is one scary looking dude! Would not want to meet him in a dark alley. But who is this that we are supposed to give the shout out too, Josh’s brother?

  172. BowsForever September 12, 2008 12:25 pm

    I’m just sayin’ we can be rabid Hawaii fans and scream at Mack to run up the score on our opponents without making unnecessary jokes about the other team’s “funny name.” Just another one of my blog-outsider, minority opinions, I guess. Didn’t you find it funny how, at least this time, an OSU fan made a comment about the Rainbows team name only AFTER a whole bunch of jokes about his team’s name had already been made? That’s what I mean by civil.

  173. BowsForever September 12, 2008 12:27 pm

    64% completions, 2 TDs and 300+ passing yards is a great day for most non-run-n-shoot QBs, btw.

  174. d1島: September 12, 2008 12:30 pm

    Thanks Mike.
    Couldn’t recall Slaughterhouse 5; had to guu-go Tralfamador 🙂

    what is the latest point spread.

  179. LizKauai (iPhone) September 12, 2008 12:35 pm

    UH oh. Just left bed bath & beyond and the dress barn.
    Dangerous places, those.
    Time for burgerville.

  181. SteveM September 12, 2008 12:38 pm

    LizKauai — do any of you have plans to meet with Garret for dinner tonight in Portland?

  182. Committed Road Warrior September 12, 2008 12:39 pm


    The latest I’ve seen about the spread has Oregon State as 13 point favorites.

  183. d1島: September 12, 2008 12:45 pm


    Yes he did. Thanks for asking.

    He and 51 of his new teammates are airborne as we speak, after being delayed at PDX.

    Something maybe UHAD might pick up on is their SID has started a blog and posted this during the delay.

    We rode to the airport on the two Wildcat buses. In our bus, Coach Joseph Smith hand-picked the video we watched. No lame Dodge Ball or screwball comedies for this group. No, instead Coach Smith trotted out the 1964 film “Zulu” about a group of a 140 British soldiers trying to protect an frontier outpost from the seemingly overwhelming attack of about 4,000 Zulu Tribe warriors.

    Coach Smith often draws analogies from famous battles or military leaders and this was his way of helping his team understand the importance of teamwork and courage in the face of overwhelming odds. Not only does Hurricane Ike await, but so does the fury and power of a Hardin-Simmons club eager to make amends for last season’s 52-42 barnburner at McMinnville.

  184. SteveM September 12, 2008 12:57 pm

    d1島 — yes, “Zulu” is a classic. I point to that movie as an example of organizational discipline…team discipline if you will. I wonder what the coach sees…

    BTW, in Second Hand Lions, who would you cast in the part of Duff (Robert Duvall) and Garth (Micahel Caine)? 😕

    Gotta pick up lunch…be back later.

  185. d1島: September 12, 2008 1:06 pm


    I wonder what the coach sees…

    It’s D3 ball. He sees a $3 DVD at Wal-Mart that he can play on the bus! 😆
    Seriously though, Coach Smith seems to be a real focused guy and very sincere about bringing that to his team as well.

  186. djmitcho September 12, 2008 1:09 pm

    I remember my first road trip in college, it was also our first game of the season. I was late for the team bus. My roommate wakes me up and says, “aren’t you suppposed to be gone already?”. I didn’t even have anything packed yet. Talk about wild beginnings to a college career.

  187. A-House September 12, 2008 1:14 pm


    dream non-conference games would be open or close with Georgia or Florida at home and play USC in a BCS game going 14 -0.

    other teams to open or close would be Ohio State, LSU, Notre Dame, Texas, Oklahoma, Florida State, Auburn, Nebraska and anyone else who would make any excuse not to play in Hawaii and best their asses!!

    realistically, we need Jim D to get home-n-home series with as many BCS teams from multiple conferences as soon as possible.

  188. al September 12, 2008 1:17 pm

    wmojo….i know the feeling. i, too, sat in those stands most upset about what was going on. i, too, wanted to go down the field and give young mr. perry some of my two cents. i, too, chagrined at the dropped davone bess should have been a td pass. i, too, can still see that jrivers intended pass do a hop skip and heard that bursting bubble.

    we need to kick in those two front beaver teeth tomorrow!

    (btw, stretch i sat only a few feet from you now that i realize where i was and how close i was to the coached box)

  189. al September 12, 2008 1:19 pm

    i see that rob25 is the only one who caught my sense of humor in that one eh?

    btw, rob25 holoholo day for you?

  190. Rob25 September 12, 2008 1:27 pm

    Hi al!

    Gotta get ready for the UH vs Pacific VB match tonight. Sitting with the enemy…OK they’re my sister and nephews…but might have to sneak off to cheer for the Wahine.

    As Ronnie would say: Is it Satuday yet?

  191. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 1:27 pm

    Oh how wonderful, another “Homey” is posting! Now that makes 4.

    “Zulu”? Now how fair is that? Guns vs. spears.


  192. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 1:31 pm

    Rob5² – What’s “Satuday”? 😆 Still planning to hang out in town for the game?

  193. Rob25 September 12, 2008 1:32 pm

    It was weird last night.

    Kanoe was wearing a St. Mary’s shirt. WTH! Only kidding…gotta support the younger sis.

    Kim wasn’t even wearing green!

    Charlie was coaching another team!

    Kari wasn’t on the Hawaii bench!

  194. Rob25 September 12, 2008 1:37 pm

    Oops, my bad…Saturday

    Thanks homey for pointing out all my faults. I was just wondering where you were at…don’t know why!

    Yes, still planning to hang out in town with Steve and Peaches. You don’t have HD either!

  195. Rob25 September 12, 2008 1:38 pm

    OK done with lunch…Kiawe BBQ Kalbi…MMMMM good! And I have some left for dinner!

  196. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 1:39 pm

    Rob5² – FYI, went to Fort Street Mall today to check out HPU (brochures) and lo’ and behold there is this hole in the wall (the place where they previously sold peroshki’s (sp) and fried squid) selling Hawaiian plate lunches and I notice they had side order of squid luau! Needless to say I bought a 16 oz. container of it. Now I can enjoy a side dish to go with the turkey tail lau lau.

    Speaking of turkey tail…I sure miss Kekoa’s specialty!!!

  197. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 1:42 pm

    Rob25° – But at least we’ll have BudLight girls.

  198. WESTSIDE mom September 12, 2008 1:46 pm

    GO WARRIORS!! #22 Jayson Rego, Good Luck Cousin, we will be cheering you and all of our WARRIORS on from my house, you may not be able to hear us but you will sure feel the MANA!!!


  199. Rob25 September 12, 2008 1:47 pm

    homey® – Ewww! Just had to bring seafood into the conversation!

    OK, I never got to try Kekoa’s turkey tail…I sort of have an aversion to anything near the a$$, but I know there are those (my mother-in-law) that love it. Guess I could be brave enough to try it.

    al – homey probably caught on to that. Nothing slips by him.

  200. al September 12, 2008 1:47 pm

    no worry….i knew it wasn’t the homey.

    could tell.

  201. Rob25 September 12, 2008 1:57 pm

    homey® – Yup, still going to hang out in town. You can have the girls, I’ll take:

    steamed rice
    potato macaroni salad
    kim chee
    fried udon
    ika tempura
    kabocha tempura
    chicken katsu
    pork tofu
    ahi teriyaki
    U.S. Choice spencer steak
    ahi poke

  202. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 1:57 pm

    only 100 more posts and ST saves a trip to the chiropractor.

    Rob5*5 – Kekoa’s TT’s are the winnahs! I didn’t get al’s post can you explain it to me.

    al – I was thinking about the same thing. I can picture the founding fathers of OSU sitting in a forest near a stream and contemplating what to name their future sports teams…then out of nowhere appears…Hooters girls!!!

  203. al September 12, 2008 1:58 pm

    rob25…..day off?

  204. Mclovin September 12, 2008 1:59 pm

    Don’t forget, U of Oregon gets lots and lots of money from Oregon based Nike, inc.

  205. Stephen Tsai September 12, 2008 2:00 pm

    I’m back.
    My head stopped hurting.
    But my eyes are tired. I drove, and it turned into a 3-hour ride because “Ferd” wanted to grab some “mood” in Corvallis. That’s the journalism term for walking around the campus for 10 minutes and then writing a story like we understand the residents.
    Then we decided to visit Cav, but he was out to lunch.
    The hotel is nice except that one of the elevators is being repaired. That’s two elevators for 66 sweaty players. We waited in the lobby for 20 minutes until all of the players had left.
    “Ferd” then goes in the elevator, but forgets to push the “2” button. Anyway, in the lobby, there’s an open staircase to the second floor. He could have saved, oh, about 20 minutes, if he walked.

  206. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 2:00 pm

    Rob13+12 – Waste money, you not going eat the ika, ahi teriyaki, ahi poke, and fried udon (cooked with fish dashi and bonito flakes).

  207. al September 12, 2008 2:01 pm

    hey what did i win for being the #200 poster?

    actually last week was the first time i ever won something on the blog. how cool was that?

  208. jojo ® September 12, 2008 2:02 pm

    Hey they made it!

  209. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 2:02 pm

    ST – good fun read your travel diary!

  210. Stephen Tsai September 12, 2008 2:02 pm

    And, no, I wasn’t staring at anybody’s chest. I was listening to disco music on the iPod.
    And the woman who conked me was about 55.

  211. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 2:03 pm

    jojo – got Ige’s?

  212. al September 12, 2008 2:04 pm

    at least you have ferd around to keep you entertained. otherwise, you would have too much free time with robert at the, er, um, casino. poor thing.

  213. jojo ® September 12, 2008 2:04 pm

    homey – got Ala Wai crabs?

  214. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 2:04 pm

    Disco? BeeGees? uh uh uh uh staying alive…

  215. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 2:05 pm

    jojo – does that mean you have soccer at kapiolani park?

  216. al September 12, 2008 2:06 pm

    you mean young lady.

    there really is a jojo?

  217. d1島 September 12, 2008 2:08 pm


    Did you have the nerve to tell the coach, “No worry, Coach. Was worth the wait. You watch!” 😯

  218. jojo ® September 12, 2008 2:10 pm

    homey – sure does! But hopefully DPK will show up with his lovely wife and stylish car and update us like last time.
    al -go back to sleep, you’re imagining things.

  219. d1島 September 12, 2008 2:10 pm

    “Just like ours”

    He could have been referring to the soda machines at Kalaepohaku 😉

  220. al September 12, 2008 2:10 pm

    d1…..abilene or not?

    just concerned.

  221. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 2:13 pm

    jojo – DPK has a stylish Chevy? He drives a ‘Vette? Got his hands on the new Camaro?

  222. jojo ® September 12, 2008 2:14 pm

    okay, what are the special tokens? Do you have to hit the machine in a certain way? Or do you just have to be “special”?

  223. Bulla September 12, 2008 2:17 pm


    Lyn, myself and Pam will be at Genjis tomorrow, see you there.

  224. d1島 September 12, 2008 2:17 pm


    yep. see 183.

    They should be landing at DFW in about a half-hour

  225. Rob25 September 12, 2008 2:18 pm

    al – Nope working with one eye on the blog. Just getting ready to run my report.

    homey ⑤ – My son Franklin likes those things and I will eat fish that doesn’t taste fishy. I know that sounds weird, but believe me it really makes sense. So I do eat the fried udon.

  226. jojo ® September 12, 2008 2:19 pm

    homey – I always thought that DPK was more of an artist, maybe driving an old VW Bus, so when I saw the Chevy, I was like, whoa! All he needed to do was recline the seat a bit more and turn up the sounds.

  227. iwonderwhytheyhateme September 12, 2008 2:19 pm


    i agree. im all for embracing pat hill’s “anytime, anyone, anyplace…”

    attempting to schedule at least 3 teams ranked in the top 25 per season would be great…well seeing that we beat enough teams to get into our own bowl game

  228. chawan_cut September 12, 2008 2:22 pm

    damn nike.
    didn’t he to to punahou here? maybe we can rekindle his love for hawaii and help out UH.

  229. chawan_cut September 12, 2008 2:23 pm

    *go to*

  230. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 2:25 pm

    Hmmm, non-fishy tasting fish? The McFish sandwich?

    Bulla – have a good one!

    jojo – Does DPK’s Chevy have DUBS and air bags?

    Anyone know how mobile the OSU QB is? Scrambler or drop back passer?

  231. Rob25 September 12, 2008 2:27 pm

    Bulla – Just got the email….glad to see we will have more people there. Good thing the bombers are grounded…my sons will be there anyways!

    Too bad I don’t have a Tsaiko shirt, but I do have my name tag…gotta remember to grab that.

  232. Rob25 September 12, 2008 2:29 pm

    Uh its Filet O Fish homey! I see you understand.

  233. LizKauai [BELIEVER] Asus September 12, 2008 2:30 pm

    SteveM. We are having a late dinner at home when Jason gets back from work in SF. I wanted to invite myself to dinner with Garreet and his family but I HAVE to stay away from shellfish and Todai would have been too tempting for me. Last night’s sushi ville dinner was bad enough, I had udon (not close to Genji’s) and salmon- including ikura- how can one resist ikura – 2 pieces – FRESH-for $2.75? Boggles the brain.

  234. brew808 September 12, 2008 2:31 pm

    OMG! Talk about hard to find! Nice hotel, rooms, peeps, but… I should have brought my safety flare gun! I hope the other guys can find the place in the dark. I’ll see if I can ID WMojo. I think I remember him from the SJSU games… 😀

    Hey – looks like someone edited some of my earlier posts! GGggrrrrr! 😈

    Okay – gotta make some phone calls. Laters…. 😀 😯 😆

    Rob∛15625 – I didn’t want to use the brand name.

  236. iwonderwhytheyhateme September 12, 2008 2:33 pm

    so who is going to Ige’s? I remember going there last year to watch, was it the Neveda game. Now that was exciting.

    anyway c ya’ll there.


  237. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 2:34 pm

    HI XLIZ! I would figure ikura would be cheap in the northwest.

  238. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 2:36 pm

    iwwthm – koakane and koa-mahu will be there along with A-Sports and others.

  239. lab rat September 12, 2008 2:38 pm

    Ahhhh…..chili dog sticker. I knew it had something to do with food.

    but pervert did come to mind.

  240. LizKauai [BELIEVER] Asus September 12, 2008 2:38 pm

    Hi brew- calling, eh?

    Hi xs-homey! I bought some XL work clothes at the Dress Barn- after getting my first set of pure beech sheets at BB&Beyond. Cool stores!

  241. iwonderwhytheyhateme September 12, 2008 2:38 pm

    kool…hey koakane how about a jan-ken-po rematch? haha

  242. d1島 September 12, 2008 2:39 pm


    Phil Knight didn’t go to Punahou.

    Knight attended Cleveland High School in Portland

    Perhaps you’re thinking of Steve Case?

  243. jm2375 September 12, 2008 2:39 pm

    Hi Rob! Where are you sitting tonight? My mom and I will be going to the game (courtesy of ST, thanks ST 😀 ). Not sure where the seats are – I gotta pick them up @ the box office. This will be the first time *ever* I’ve gone to a sporting event with my mom. I used to hear stories about how Dad dragged her to boxing and baseball games when they were first married.

    Hey Ronnie & SteveM – is it Saturday yet? hehehe.

    To da Tsai-kos going to da game – be nice to da OSU QB, ok? He get Hawaii ties too.

    OK back to work and lurking.

  244. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 2:42 pm

    d1 – nike, aol, nike, aol…sounds the same to me.

  245. d1島 September 12, 2008 2:43 pm

    I can’t believe up to 90,000 people are choosing to “ride out” Ike along the TX coastline.
    When the cops tell you, “Okay, but take this permanent marker and write your name and SSN on your forearm so we can identify your body later.” I think it’s time to go!

  246. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 2:43 pm

    jm2375 – you should drag your mom to Ige’s tomorrow.

  247. (Jesse) James September 12, 2008 2:45 pm

    homey – Koa-mahu going be there?? I never hear from him/her yet…wow, I’m hurt. He/She must be contacting KK directly….

  248. d1島 September 12, 2008 2:45 pm

    homey ⑤,

    $ound$ the $ame to me, too 🙂

  249. (Jesse) James September 12, 2008 2:46 pm

    ST…If you already had an enlarged cranium, how can we tell if it was swollen from you getting hit on the head? You really should have that thing looked at…..MWAHAHAHAHAHHAAHHA

  250. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 2:47 pm

    d1 – I don’t think Darwin had that in mind when he coined survival of the fittest. I tell you some people just like to challenge mother nature. It’s not like gas is expensive in Texas. What’s so hard to drive a few hundred miles out of harms way?

  251. brew808 September 12, 2008 2:48 pm

    SteveM – Please change the location of the Elmer Fudd’s restaurant the Road Warrior/Tsaiko’s are meeting at for breakfast tomorrow. It’s not the one you have on your website – it’s now at:

    Elmer’s Restaurant
    1411 NE 82nd Avenue
    Portland, 97220
    503 252 8788

    It’s too bad as I drove past the other one and now know how to get to that one! Looks new/nice from the road. 😀 😯 😆

  252. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 2:48 pm

    was that a false jojo?

  254. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 2:53 pm

    al – that was the real jojo. well seems real to me.

  255. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 2:56 pm

    I know you are lurking. I saw your ip address.


  256. LizKauai [BELIEVER] Asus September 12, 2008 2:56 pm

    brew- unless something changed, the 82nd Ave Elmers is NOT the one we are going to.

  257. Loa September 12, 2008 2:58 pm

    afternoon gang!

    have fun at ige’s and genji’s
    i’ll be looking for someplace in town to catch the second half

  258. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 3:00 pm

    Loa – just go to Genji’s.

  259. Loa September 12, 2008 3:03 pm

    homey – i think kapiolani closer, gotta make sure i check my batteries in my radio

  260. Rob25 September 12, 2008 3:03 pm

    al – I know, but then people (like Gigi) were getting confused. I wouldn’t want to be accused of misleading people. I don’t want to be false anything.

  263. brew808 September 12, 2008 3:11 pm

    Okay, okay, okay….. I was corrected by Ms. Lizzy! Darn – I hate being wrong! SteveM has the correct Elmer Fudd’s at:

    10001 N.E. Sandy Blvd.
    Portland, OR 97220
    (503) 256-2150

    Sorry for the earlier misinformation! 😳 😳 🙄

  264. Homey Baloney September 12, 2008 3:14 pm

    so did Jameel Dowling give the tour?

  265. d1島 September 12, 2008 3:16 pm

    But at least you know wea stay, right?

  266. Homey two shawty DA BEAST YO! September 12, 2008 3:16 pm

    Almost gameday. Hope we hit um early and get a big lead early. Show those Hawaii defectors what’s up.

  267. Loa September 12, 2008 3:17 pm

    so jojo going be yelling at refs again,
    i just hope i no yell at the wrong times and make arse while listening to the game

    d1島 – howzit, are they streaming #2’s game?

  268. Homey Lo September 12, 2008 3:20 pm

    Is there really gonna be a lot of Hawaii peeps at the game? Didn’t realize the capacity of Reser is less than Aloha Stadium.

  269. Kazz September 12, 2008 3:21 pm

    What’s “Nike”?

  270. Kekoa (Survivor-WB) September 12, 2008 3:22 pm

    homes ⑤ ~ Is it possible that we can influence the outcome of the grand prize LV game ticket give-away at Ige’s? If we made it known to other contestants that a Tsaiko should win, or grave harm would befall them, it would send a distinct message, right? Hehehe, that should make it more fun!

  271. d1島 September 12, 2008 3:23 pm


    Streaming? Depends how close Ike gets…pa-dah-boom-tsh!

    Audio stream only for this game. Just found out get video feed for subscription for home games. Gotta check that out in a coupla weeks.

  272. koakane™ September 12, 2008 3:23 pm

    aloha tsai-ko’s whew school out and most of the children gone so get time to read and blog.

  273. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 3:24 pm

    Rob25 – I bet Rex Johnson wished there were privacy laws.

  274. koakane™ September 12, 2008 3:26 pm

    james you koa mahu come on now no need hide already

  275. Loa September 12, 2008 3:28 pm

    Kekoa (Survivor-WB) – maybe can stuff the ballot box?

    d1島 – 😆 at least get audio, hope they can pronounce the hawaiian names

  276. koakane™ September 12, 2008 3:28 pm


    junk ken po game ok as long as nobody poke the oddah guys face or eyes.

  277. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 3:30 pm

    Kekoa – I hope Diane didn’t read your post.

  278. Homey Lo September 12, 2008 3:30 pm

    btw, sports authority has hawaii under armour t shirts. a nice black one with the “H” logo and UA logo on the front centered. Also one that says “hawaii warriors” with the “H” in the front.

  279. d1島 September 12, 2008 3:32 pm


    It’s only da Uchinanchu names that I care about! j/k

  280. SteveM September 12, 2008 3:33 pm

    😕 Hey Brew, better check the batteries in your secret decoder ring. Unless it’s changed back again, here is what Stretch sent out yesterday:

    I called Elmers at the previous location and they recommended that we go to another Elmers that is 1.5 miles away from the airport hotels. I called and they don’t take reservations but they have my name and request for 25 people. Below is the new address. Please pass along so everyone doesn’t end up at two different places.

    10001 N.E. Sandy Blvd.
    Portland, OR 97220
    (503) 256-2150

    BTW — a hint for you and WarriorMojo looking for each other –look for someone with your same height and build 🙂

  281. koakane™ September 12, 2008 3:34 pm

    so finally hear from koa mahu and yes going be there see his answer #247

  282. d1島 September 12, 2008 3:36 pm


    Way to narrow it down! 😆

  283. whitey September 12, 2008 3:36 pm

    Good afternoon Tsaiko. Long time no see, but just got back from the way north country where no more internet service (which is aok with me). The fishing was just average and only limited out on salmon one day (35 silvers). Trying to get the UH score last week was not easy, but good news is better with age. My best to Coach Mc and the Warriors this weekend. GO WARRIORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  284. Loa September 12, 2008 3:36 pm

    d1島 – hehe, get plenty boys from hawaii on the team?
    didn’t the former former uh ad play there too?

  285. koakane™ September 12, 2008 3:37 pm

    oh btw if km broke back mountain patnah not beaching then coming with him.

  286. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 3:41 pm

  287. Loa September 12, 2008 3:42 pm

    hey whitey – welcome home!
    i’m sure the darkside vendors must be happy

  288. homey ⑤ September 12, 2008 3:45 pm

    Loa – t-gate, 9/27, be there.

  289. Kazz September 12, 2008 3:46 pm

    Speaking of referees…

    I hope to plan something special for them come the Cincy game at the end of the season… OR maybe something JUST for the WAC officials…

    I know you all will get a kick out of it and depending, it may get me removed from Aloha Stadium…………

  290. Rob25 September 12, 2008 3:46 pm

    homey – Yes, it’s amazing that he would do those kinds of things on a public computer.

  291. Home Slice September 12, 2008 3:46 pm

    btw, sports authority has hawaii under armour t shirts. a nice black one with the “H” logo and UA logo on the front centered. Also one that says “hawaii warriors” with the “H” in the front.

    I saw that last night and I like the athletic gray one better. They also have a new hat with the “H” on the front and it’s two-toned. It’s the one with the adjustable strap and not the fitted ones.

  293. Homey two shawty DA BEAST YO! September 12, 2008 3:48 pm

    kazz, what u got in mind? you konna dress up in a zebra suit?

    Nah, I don’t know where she is but hopefully everything is ok with her and the family.

  297. whitey September 12, 2008 3:51 pm

    just read pride comments on win da line play. agree 100% this battle will decide who will win. warriors stepping up 😈

    of bulla sounded good on L&L radio show dis morning. should be one good hs battle this weekend. you attending?

  305. (Jesse) James September 12, 2008 4:00 pm

    KK…you and Pride were spot on with the line play. Like I said yesterday, the offensive and defensive line need to come to play. Come out with the same intensity they did in the first quarter at Florida. Play that way for the entire game and it will be interesting. And I am not Koa-mahu…ask Homey….

  306. Loa September 12, 2008 4:00 pm

    homey ⑤ – yep, and that’s not the only thing i cannot remember at my old age

    kazz – i hope you not planning to bring back the 70’s rituals, guarantee you go jail, but at least you going make the nightly news, maybe even sportscenter, hehe

    i am confused….

    pomai….explain the methodolgy in which a winner is chosen?

    is it hawaii score first then oregon state?

    most folks pick hawaii of course, but, say oregon st wins does that mean that “beaveready” wins cuz he is the only one to pick them?

    i was just wondering cuz i could never figure out how the winner is chosen.

  309. al September 12, 2008 4:07 pm

    nanook of the north has returned to the valley isle. glad to see that he did bring home some salmon fry. his reputation has been preserved?

  312. (Jesse) James September 12, 2008 4:15 pm

    Gang…I have to go run some errands. Hope to be back later tonight. If not, I will see everyone at Ige’s tomorrow.

    To all the lurkers out there, you are more than welcome to join us at Ige’s. Just stop on by. We don’t bite…unless you are good looking, Koa-mahu might but he/she is only worried about her REAL man right now…mwahahahahahahaha

    Jason…I’ll call you tomorrow but might pick you up earlier since Ige’s apparently opens at 9:00 now.

    Okay. Got hele…

    i was just wondering cuz i could never figure out how the winner is chosen.

    al closest to the actual score without going over. both scores count.
    35 – 38 Beaveready, the only way he would win is if the score was 35+ – 38+ say the score was 35 – 36 nobody would win. now take your pik
    42 – 17 al, if you look at the list you will see that you have up to 44 for UH and 20 for OR, if the score was say 44 – 20 then you would win but if it was 44 -21 then wafan would win. Hope that makes sense to you.

  321. BowsForever September 12, 2008 4:54 pm

    Howzabout…41-21 UH for the Oregon State game? Add in 2 FGs for Dan Kelly after his, er, armpit adjustment?

  322. Da Punchbowl Kid September 12, 2008 4:56 pm


    You’re right. I am a sensitive artist kind of guy. Da shiny ride is Sweety’s.
    I still got a 92 Mazda parked out on the street. 😉

  323. Hoohiki September 12, 2008 5:01 pm

    I’m envious of all of you who’ll be attending the game tomorrow. Please post often so I could live vicariously through you. Go Warriors!!

    Speaking of “Warriors”… This controversy was discussed ad nauseum once upon a time…But to avoid confusion and to provide some “consistency” for lack of a better term, our nickname should just be changed across the board. Warriors and Wahine Warriors. Forget Joe Moore. How many schools has multiple nicknames?

  324. Hoohiki September 12, 2008 5:05 pm

    35 – 28, Hawaii.

  325. Pomai September 12, 2008 5:11 pm

    Well now we have Oregon at their place should be a tough one?

    Since many are dubbing tomorrow’s game as a “personal” one, LET’S GET PERSONAL!!!!

    I heard the Karaoke brothers, Cal, Ron, and Mack were up on stage in Corvallis singing to the OSU staff. I believe this was their selection:

    Were no strangers to this game
    You know the rules and so do i
    A big ‘ole victory is what Im thinking of
    You wouldnt get this from any other team

    We just wanna show you how we’re feeling
    Gotta make you understand

    Never gonna give it up
    (You’re) Never gonna get a first down
    Never gonna run around and WE’RE GONNA BLITZ YOU
    Then we’re gonna make you cry
    You’re gonna wanna say goodbye
    We’re gonna sack your guy and hurt you

    We’ve known each other for so long
    Your team’s been aching
    But you’re too proud to say it
    Inside we both know whats been going on
    We know the game and were gonna play it

    And if you ask me how Im feeling
    Dont tell me you’re too blind to see

  327. d1島: September 12, 2008 5:20 pm

    Well, well, no Wells
    Beanie Wells is out for Sat.’s game.

  328. stacyj September 12, 2008 5:26 pm



    Hi everyone!

    I’m out..have a great night/weekend!

  329. Kazz September 12, 2008 5:26 pm

    Saw this at Sports Hawaii:


    INCOLN, Neb. (AP) -New Mexico State coach Hal Mumme jokes that he can’t explain his team’s exotic new defensive system. He just hopes it works.

    “I think Joe Lee is trying to get 12 guys on the field without the officials knowing it, and hopefully he’ll get away with it a few times,” Mumme said this week.

    The Aggies are playing a 3-3-5 system under first-year defensive coordinator Joe Lee Dunn, and it has Nebraska’s coaches and players scratching their heads in advance of Saturday night’s game in Lincoln.

    The 3-3-5 is anchored by three down linemen. The three linebackers and five defensive backs are given lots of freedom to move before the snap, forcing the offense to consider the possibility of a blitz every play.

    Two strong safeties line up anywhere from the line of scrimmage to 5 yards deep, 2 to 3 yards outside the offensive tackle or tight end. The linebackers are directly behind the three down linemen, the cornerbacks are in their usual spots and the free safety is deep.

    How is this much different than Mack’s “Oky” package???

  330. Kazz September 12, 2008 5:28 pm


    September 12th, 2008 at 5:20 pm
    Well, well, no Wells
    Beanie Wells is out for Sat.’s game.

    Other than the OSU/UH game, there is another one on Saturday???

  331. djmitcho September 12, 2008 5:29 pm

    To make a long story as short as possible. Every practice leading up to the day before we left for the game, I was practicing at quick side tackle.
    When I finally get on the bus, I gotta sit across the aisle from the head coach. I also notice our only center had his leg in a big knee brace. The coach turns to me and says, “you played center in high school right?”. He tells me to go find a playbook and start learning the plays.
    So after a 9 hour bus ride, our walk through, and dinner, the coach comes to the room where I’m studying plays with our center and says “you’re starting at center tomorrow.” We ended up upsetting Western Wash., who happened to be ranked in the top 20 at the time.
    The crazy thing is we went to that away game with a total of 6 O-line available to play. That’s how I started my college career.

  332. Pauoa Boy September 12, 2008 5:46 pm

    Howzit gang,
    dropping in for a sec and then headed back to HS football game across the street. Right now watching Vista Murrieta HS football and man I thought I was at a college game. There stadium is awesome, nice field, lots of seating in the stands, great commentary nice and clear, great concession stands, would definitely put Hawaii HS’s to shame. Plus for a high school game they have a huge turnout, I’m talking packed all the way around the field. I would say in my opinion probably about 10,000 fans or so, no joke! Anyway, gotta get back to the game very exciting, some nice D1 prospects playing…

  333. koakane™ September 12, 2008 5:51 pm

  335. Committed Road Warrior September 12, 2008 5:53 pm

    Evening folks!

    What a second half in the Kansas-South Florida game. USF kicks the game winning FG as time expires.

    Opted for dinner at Todai. Luckily for me their Portland location is about 5 blocks or so from my hotel so once I filled up my stomach with food, I got to walk some of it off. 🙂 Was any of the Portland folks there? I recall someone shooting for dinner there. I certainly made the $30 worth it by stuffing up on sushi and the like.

    Getting sleepy………….

    Eye of Ike is passing over Galveston.
    Downtown Galveston is under 6 ft of water
    The eyewall is approaching Houston with near 100 mph winds
    Over 1 million house holds in Houston are without power. It could be weeks before power is restored.
    Prayers out to all.

    (#2 is hundreds of miles away in Abilene and should be sound asleep now)

  365. d1島: September 12, 2008 10:02 pm

    The worst part is that Ike is a heavily “back-loaded” system.
    Those folks still have yet to get hit with the worst part of it.
    Listening to Houston newsradio.
    A lady is calling in now with the first report of what sounds like a tornado.
    God bless.

  366. d1島: September 12, 2008 10:04 pm

    The craziest thing is they are taking calls from people who are “sitting on my front porch watching 3 50-ft pine trees bend over nearly touching the ground”

  367. koakane™ September 12, 2008 10:10 pm

    Article about the new weights at FHS in the paper this morning.
    Awesome contribution from Alumnus Michael Gangloff (’91)

    Hi D1Shima,

    Thanks for the heads up on this article. Great story about an alumnus who gives back to the school. I’m just catching up with the blog..lots of interesting “Posts”. Hope everything is pono now. The WB always rights itself.

    Good luck to your son and hope everything is going to be OK tomorrow.

    Go Warriors!

  376. d1島: September 12, 2008 10:36 pm


    Wow, you’re up late.

    Looking at a map of Houston, I don’t think storm surge will be a problem in Katy but this thing is about 2/3 the size of Texas!
    The guys on the radio seem to be really concerned about tornados now as it makes landfall.

  377. d1島: September 12, 2008 10:41 pm

    Yeah that was good news.
    Thanks for the good thoughts.

    James: Okay, I will be awaiting your call.

    My prayers for everyone in Texas. I have friends in Wichita Falls and Austin, I hope they will be okay.

    Another heart-stopping volleyball match tonight! Wahine on the run in all three sets, but they still managed to pull it off. Once this year’s team learns consistency, then nothing, no one will stop them.

    Tomorrow is almost all-day sports – UH v. OSU football at Ige’s followed by USC v. the other OSU probably at Champions, Murphy’s or Eastside followed by more live volleyball at SSC with #9 taking on #10 – me Almamammy v. UH.

    Does anybody want two tickets to the Wahine/Boise State game on Saturday, September 20. Let me know so I can leave the tickets at the box office for you.

    Redemption fees from last week’s T-Gate slightly over $20 so we rounded it up to $25 and will be delivering the check to Dole Middle School’s Cross-Country program on Monday.

  391. Stephen Tsai September 12, 2008 11:38 pm

    Well, the players are all tucked in.
    So, too, are the sportscasters.
    Robert Kekaula wandered in, after spending several hours at the poker room across the street.
    Graunke’s mom is in this hotel. So, too, are Tim Grasso’s parents.
    The Iceman’s girlfriend is in town. Her name is … Kelly. Yes, she could be Kelly Kelly.
    The Iceman’s father didn’t make the trip. Instead, the money saved will be used for The Iceman’s senior shirt. There are going to be icicles dripping from the letters.

    ST drinks a couple of cans of red bull, great pick me up to keep you up.

  393. al September 12, 2008 11:41 pm

    okay….so did you enlighten the lovely liz chun that its “grawn-key” and not “grun-key”.

  394. al September 12, 2008 11:43 pm

    please tell ferd that a 42 oz margarita is the equivalent of 6 margaritas which is more than a pitcher of margaritas.

  397. al September 12, 2008 11:52 pm

    this is a tough game to figure.

    my sentiment is with the warriors of course and yes i would love to see an upset here.

    what worries me is that the vegas line is 13 pts in favor of oregon st. that many points for a team that is 0-2?

    are we being under rated here after the florida shellacking?

    is the pac 10 that good? (didn’t we beat the last two pac 10 teams)

    do they know that graunke is back?

    is reser stadium that tough a place to play?

    going in to the season didn’t most feel that we are in a definite rebuilding mode this season?

    tough pickings i tell you. based on the current line it is crazy to favor oregon state by that much. history dictates that when that happens you supposed to give the tough pts.

    but, sentiment for me is the warriors. i’ll sit back and watch this game and enjoy.

    tyler could start the bandwagon rolling with a great win here. are we ready?

  398. al September 12, 2008 11:53 pm

    oh btw….

    check out this recruit on our list.

  399. al September 12, 2008 11:55 pm

    so what is it in the red bull that gives you a boost?

    is it loaded with chemical caffeine?

  400. Stephen Tsai September 12, 2008 11:56 pm

    I told Liz about Graunke’s name. Sometimes she has a mental block with it.

  401. al September 12, 2008 11:59 pm

    btw, if you missed the leahey and leahey show on wednesday you need to catch the replay on sunday. a very well done interview with tyler graunke. he seems like a new man.

  402. Stephen Tsai September 13, 2008 12:00 am

    Sometimes people have mental blocks. For instance, I have a neighbor who had difficulty saying the previous AD’s name ….

  403. al September 13, 2008 12:00 am

    this is weird.
    new comments get inserted almost randomly each time you refresh and i don’t mean at the end but rather between older posts.

  404. Jason September 13, 2008 12:01 am

    Yeah, that happens sometimes.

  405. al September 13, 2008 12:01 am

    yah, without an expletive inserted before or after that ad’s name that is.

  406. al September 13, 2008 12:03 am

    well its game day.

    i see that the fox network ch. 20 for some will be carrying the game this morning.

    hmmmm. and i paid good money for the ppv.

  407. al September 13, 2008 12:04 am

    was there a contest for post number 200 and 400?

  408. al September 13, 2008 12:06 am

    when the leahey’s asked tyler how did he do it after only taking but a few reps during the week to have such a command performance.

    his reply was that he has been practicing for four years prior to the weber st game.

  409. al September 13, 2008 12:07 am

    lights out gotta rest up for the game.

  410. SL87 September 13, 2008 12:09 am

    The mention of Cal Lee reminded me of my high school days. Yup, I went to SL. Never played football though. He was a teacher that made a big impact on my life even though I wasn’t one of his players.

    Famous words or wisdom from Coach Lee:
    “If the guy is bigger than you, hit him from behind – with a Chevy.”

    Made me smile when I didn’t feel like there was much to smile about back then.

  411. Lady who hit Mr. Tsai September 13, 2008 2:00 am

    This is getting out of hand!
    First Mr.Tsai stares hungrily at my chest.
    Now he says that I look 55!
    I’m only 27!
    If I knew that I would suffer this online abuse,
    I would’ve shoved his earbud into his brain

  412. Kekoa (Survivor-WB) September 13, 2008 4:07 am

    Dear Lady who hit Mr. Tsai ~

    ~ I believe that you have some anger issues…brainstorming yes, brainshoving, no!

    ~ Didn’t you notice that Mr. Tsai wears glasses?

    ~ He’s farsighted so everything up close is kinda fuzzy even with his glasses on. I bet he thought you had accidently inflated your life vest and was about to help you take it off. Omigooness, good thing he didn’t!

    ~ All you had to do is say “Aren’t you the famous Sports writer?” and he would’ve autographed your flight brochure.

    ~ All you had to continue to say is you are an avid reader of the *Warrior Beat* and he would have pulled out two tickets to the Wahine VB game for the next time they play at Boise St.

    ~ All you had to ask is, “Aren’t those wonderful people who are ardent followers of yours called Tsai-ko’s? and he would have had one of us arrange for a cattle call in your honor.

    ~ All you had to do is curb your anger to make a new friend and he prolly would have shared the lunch his lovely wife Wena packed for him.

    In the future, you should be more courteous to people who you may have mistaken for Geeky looking, big-headed, cell phone repairman.

    Does anyone know what other U.S. states have their big state universities so close ( 50 miles?) to each other like the U. of Oregon and Oregon State?

  416. Beaveready September 13, 2008 1:47 pm

    Hilorain. that one helluva question. And i dont know the answer. And it cause big problems because fans dont like each other but are in the same family many times. The Civil War thing is pretty real out here between the schools.
