Camping trip

It will be a camp within a camp when the Rainbow Warriors relocate this afternoon to Joint Base Pearl Harbor/Hickam.

The Warriors practice this morning on campus, then pack for the base, where they will train through Tuesday.

It should be a nice break for the Warriors, who were stationed in UH’s dance studios the past two weeks. When they return to the Manoa campus, they will be allowed to check into the dorms or move back into off-campus apartments.

* * * * *

The competition should accelerate on base as the Warriors finalize the depth chart. Once they return to campus next week, the Warriors will focus exclusively on preparing for USC. The next week could see a late push to alter what is now the No. 1 offensive line of left tackle Sean Shigematsu, left guard Mike Milovale, center Ben Clarke, right guard Kody Afusia and right tackle Frank Loyd Jr.

Running back Diocemy Saint Juste, who is recovering from a hamstring injury, should be at full speed in the coming days. X receiver Vasquez Haynes has worn the yellow jersey in practices because of the shoulder ailment, but he also should be ready for full-contact work in the next few days.

* * * * *

Was it mentioned former UH recruit Ronald Fields is at Texas A&M-Commerce?

Was it mentioned former UH receiver Chinedu Amadi is keeping his Promise? Recruited as Promise Amadi, he wanted to be called his given first name, Chinedu, while a Warrior. Now he is back to Promise as a Boise State walk-on. Fair’s fair. After all, his former team changed its nickname.

    Win. That is all.

  13. Stephen Tsai August 14, 2013 7:17 am

    A lot of things aren’t listed on the Web site.

    But Luke Matthews and Chow are coaching the receivers.

    Re: Yesterday’s debates.

    If you didn’t know about this blog, would you be able to find it? I work with people who don’t know the blog still exists. It’s not promoted. To find the blog requires a certain intelligence, aptitude, diligence and curiosity. The point is: If you’re on here, my presumption is you’re intelligent. That’s why I think 99 percent of comments are thoughtful. (There’s the 1 percent that needs medical attention. Seriously. Quest will pay for it.)

    On the premise that we’re all reasonably intelligent people, there’s a way to debate without name-calling or trying to project superiority by dispersing inferiority.

    In other words, play nicely.

  17. Stephen Tsai August 14, 2013 7:28 am

    Anyway, practice starts at 9 a.m. today.

    It’s the last open practice of the year. Take notes. You’ll be quizzed later.

    Warrior NY, that was not my comment. I just copied what Jeezy said on the wsn blog. I noted that I forgot to put his comments in quotes. I like his posts too but said that he comes on with a lot of attitude. I guess he decided to vent on another blogsince his last comments were about the blog host.

  19. kawika49 August 14, 2013 7:39 am

  20. HiFlyer August 14, 2013 7:39 am

    Good morning all.

    Lets go Rainbow Warriors

    Beat USC

  21. ChowIsPau August 14, 2013 7:44 am

    Inyoface, a lot of teams weren’t supposed to be usc last year (which is true), but UH was not one of them that did. Don’t see it happening this year.

    Stephen, how can your own co-workers not know the blog exists? This is one the best followed sports blogs in the country. The fact that it is not promoted is a shame, but despite that lack of support, it does well. That just proves you are an excellent blog host/writer.

    I may not agree with most people on here, but I am sure we can all agree that at least we have a place to disagree. better than having to slug it out in the parking lot or the stands like in the old days.

  22. tommui August 14, 2013 7:47 am


    From one of my UH bulletins, I understand that the Dance Studio is only a year old – looks rather nice.

  23. Da Punchbowl Kid August 14, 2013 7:55 am

    In all its trials, tribulations and in various iterations, the Warrior Beat is the place to be for many of us seeking our host’s observations on Rainbow Warrior football and other sports. And for the 4Fs!

    Thanks for countless hours you spend making this place happen, Stephen! Long live the Warrior Beat!


  24. Rodney August 14, 2013 7:56 am

    It’s a dance studio, its for dancing. Not sleeping in.

    All other colleges sleep in dorms!

    But like Chow says no excuses!

  25. boolakanaka August 14, 2013 7:56 am

    Aloha all from the east!!!

  26. Shoko August 14, 2013 8:01 am

    I’m just here for the entertainment value. It’s a lot better than HBO.

    Anyway, maybe I missed it, but is the locker rooms completed?

  27. Shoko August 14, 2013 8:05 am

    Only reason I ask is that I heard Nevada had their locker rooms renovated recently and got a anonymous donor to pony up 100k for it. Took them only couple months to complete.

  28. Shoko August 14, 2013 8:06 am

    Actually, it might have been only a month, but the Nevada project might not have been as extensive as UH’s.

  29. boolakanaka August 14, 2013 8:07 am

    And here–here for ST’s call to order and decorum on the board. All vantages and perspectives can be debated with vigor and enthusiasm, but at the end of the day there is neither room or need to marginalize folks with name-calling. The fact that we are all from the most diverse place on earth, by our very nature we have divergent upbringings and perspectives, and as well we have all grown-up with each other, in way or the other. Not a sermon or anything of the like, but rather just the recognition we are all on the board for the same reason, to support the warriors……And Mahalo nui to ST for all you do.

  30. PolyMom August 14, 2013 8:07 am

    19 players sat out yesterday at USC practice. They are kind of beat up. Kiffen’s job IS on the line. Was watching some Fox Sports show last night and they are saying if USC does not beat Hawaii by 24 they see Kiffen getting fired.

    @ST, my hub really enjoyed this mornings article. It was exciting to read a no huddle.

    Good Morning to all the Warrior fans.

  31. tommui August 14, 2013 8:16 am

    #29 boolakanaka ” rather just the recognition we are all on the board for the same reason, to support the warriors…”

    I like your sentiments – but perhaps the reality should be ” we should all be on board to support the warriors…”

    sorry but as a season ticket holder for years…here is whats going to happen…We are all going to be excited at kick off…then about one play and 90 yards for a touchdown the crowd will be quiet…at about half time we will all decide if going back to the tailgate or going home to beat traffic is the best option for the rest of the night.

  38. WarriorNY August 14, 2013 8:51 am


    I will email ya back later on this evening…

    St how does the defensive line and dbs look?

  40. jeffdman2000 August 14, 2013 8:51 am

    USC 56 Hawaii 10, team will look better, but no way we dont allow 10 sacks and 2 ints. New quarterback…same line basically. The definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results..

    Thanks Braddah

  49. NotNasti August 14, 2013 9:13 am

    47. Boola, thanks for the link to the Greg Salas article. Funny how the article says to “take a chance on Salas.” I don’t think Coach Kelly will be “taking a chance” on Salas. He has proven himself in college, with the Rams, and in summer camp. I think he passes the “eyeball” test.

  53. Manoa Mist August 14, 2013 9:32 am

    Yes love the blog but hate the nastiness. When it gets ugly here I go elsewhere. Can’t we all just get along? Not that I don’t enjoy reading everyone’s opinion – whether pro-UH or not. That’s why you a fan, to call it like you see it. Most of us can’t see it all!

    Oh and got some scoops on Price. Seems brother just didn’t want to go above and beyond the call of duty, which is kinda expected on the college level. Had to cut him loose before the other coaches tied him to the goal post, so to speak.

    Still, if you going to pay the guy for doing nothing, I can’t be down with that but it seems to be the UH way. Greenwood, paid for nothing, Hinshaw, paid for nothing, Frazier, paid for nothing, Jones, paid for nothing, Mac, paid for nothing, Donovan, paid for nothing, Price, paid for nothing.

  54. kifi August 14, 2013 9:39 am

    I know what a touchdown is. I know what a turnover is. I know who the linebackers are. Can someone please explain to me what a 4 or a 5 technique is?

  55. Independent Thinker August 14, 2013 9:40 am

    Talk UH Football, people.

    Thanks ST for the job you do on this blog, and for the updates from practice.

    Q: If chow is coaching QB’s and receivers, who is doing job of HC? Each of these jobs is a full-time job. Does this mean chow is doing three full-time jobs? This is not a good strategy for the team and this would not be good for chow’s health.

  56. Independent Thinker August 14, 2013 9:42 am

    …oh, and if chow is also OC…then who is HC?

    Is he for real? Is he really doing the job of four people?

  57. kifi August 14, 2013 9:43 am

    I do notice during games that the wide receivers or slot backs run back and forth left to right or right to left. Why do they do that? Is there some strategic advantage to running around back there before the play starts?

  58. kifi August 14, 2013 9:47 am

    Sorry if it seems like I’m asking dumb questions, but nobody ever stops to explain these things. What’s the difference between a stunt and a blitz?

  59. boolakanaka August 14, 2013 9:48 am

    Here you go:The numbers refer to a spot where the center of the defensive lineman’s body ends up.

    Lining up at a “zero technique” means the DL lines up right over the Center’s nose. Moving outward, the even numbers mean lining up directly over an offensive lineman, so 2 is right over the guard, 4 over the tackle, and 6 over the tight end.

    The odd numbers mean a DL lines up on the outside shoulder of a lineman. A 1-technique means lining up just to one side of the center, 3 technique on the outside shoulder of a guard, and 5 technique on the outside shoulder of a tackle. Lining up on the outside shoulder of the tight end is actually a 9 technique, and the inside shoulder of the TE is a 7 technique.

  60. PurpleMaple August 14, 2013 9:48 am

    I don’t really care which player starts, or what kind of offense Chow elects to employ, as long as the offense is able to able to move the chains. Otherwise our defense will simply wilt in the second half.

  61. d1shima August 14, 2013 9:53 am

    I dunno about 4 or 5 technique either but I remember the Pohaku 4 Five from the Lolo Telethon. The came on before the Sonny Afook Orchestra wit da irrepresabul voice of Winona Santos and the unusual dog ack from Ewa Beach.

  70. Independent Thinker August 14, 2013 10:14 am

    ST, is manziel at 71 the same poster as poster at 60 (same IP)? Sounds like the same person. If it is, then manziel = stalker.

    Manziel appeared about same time my stalker appeared. Coincidence? Just wondering.

  71. Steve P August 14, 2013 10:21 am

    I believe a stunt and a blitz are the same animal…a blitz is when they come after the QB full tilt…a stunt is when they line up to blitz and either dont or do….in other words the O line isn’t sure if the blitz is coming. Thats a stunt.

  72. Johnny Manziel is a War Criminal August 14, 2013 10:24 am

    #73: uh.. no. it shouldn’t be. just because someone is posting after you and pointing out something they observed doesn’t mean that they are one of the (possibly many?) people posting under the specific internet handle that you like to use. On a personal note, I really think you should let this whole thing go. The best way to get rid of trolls, especially in a set up like this blog, is to not feed them.

  73. Independent Thinker August 14, 2013 10:25 am

    A while back, I recall you checked and the records showed shoko shared the same IP as my stalker.

    Is shoko = manziel = stalker? Meaning, one and the same?

    I know its summer time and the gnats tend to come out during this time, but after a while, gets tiring swatting away gnats.

  74. jimmy the lock August 14, 2013 10:26 am

    I thought blitzes were from the lb’s and db’s and stunts are the linemen.

  75. Johnny Manziel is a War Criminal August 14, 2013 10:26 am

    #75: A stunt is when defensive linemen change positions/roles during a pass rush in order to confuse the offensive linemen. A blitz is when the defense sends more defenders across the line of scrimmage than the offense has blockers in an attempt to get to the quarterback. Blitzing schemes may have linemen running stunts but a stunt is not a blitz.

  76. boolakanaka August 14, 2013 10:30 am

    75–similar, but a blitz is the defense bringing more rushers than there are blockers. A stunt is where defensive lineman will switch courses, conscripted, and try and confuse the offensive line.

  77. Steve P August 14, 2013 10:30 am

    Thanks for clarifying that. Although, I have to add that a stunt can be performed by a LB unless things have changed.

  81. izzy August 14, 2013 10:50 am

    Waiting this afternoon for a home energy audit and catching up on the blog. . .


    So from what I have read, sometime — maybe THIS year — the offense will break huddle and line up with Frank L(l)oyd, right guard, Don(nie) King in the slot and the quarterback will signal: “Two-sixty right! Two-sixty right! Uh-oh! Uh-oh!!” There will be a perfectly executed swing-pass to the right flat and Penitito will rumble for 65 yards and 6 points.

    Or am I giving away secrets?

  82. boolakanaka August 14, 2013 10:54 am

    From the WSJ:

    Drivers of BMWs frequently come in for anecdotal criticism for habits on the road that are perceived as aggressive.

    Now, a couple of studies, one in the U.S. and another from the U.K., appear to provide statistical evidence that BMW drivers are, to be polite about it, complete jerks.

    In the older study, by researchers at the University of California, BMW drivers were far less likely to stop for a pedestrian who had just entered a crosswalk, the New York Times notes.

    “In our crosswalk study, none of the cars in the beater-car category drove through the crosswalk. They always stopped for pedestrians,” researcher Paul K. Piff told the paper. He added that not only were “fancy cars were less likely to stop,” but also that “BMW drivers were the worst.”

    Drivers of BMWs and other high-status cars (including Prius hybrids) were also more likely to cheat at four-way-stop intersections, according to the research.

    In the second study, in the U.K., motorists were asked to identify the make and color of the car from which they have most frequently suffered road-rage incidents, the Daily Mail reports.

    The study of 2,837 motorists found men between the ages of 35 and 50 driving blue BMWs were most likely to be reported as having engaged in road-rage behaviors such as aggressive driving and swearing.

  98. jimmy the lock August 14, 2013 12:39 pm

  99. Independent Thinker August 14, 2013 12:40 pm

    “blitz” is when your uncle (kk) has his 12pk + an extra greenie or seven.

    a “stunt” is something your uncle does after your cousin (jj) dares him to do it….

  107. kifi August 14, 2013 1:07 pm

    Thanks gang. Mahalo to boolakanaka for explaining the 4 and 5 technique. I think I understand. Now I’m more confused on the difference between a stunt and a blitz.

  108. kifi August 14, 2013 1:08 pm

    Although I think what nobody said sounds accurate.

  109. kawika49 August 14, 2013 1:11 pm

    A stunt is when u preten u going one way and then go the other. A blitz is when u don’t preten and just go for the pukas and hope you hit someone. As coach Marciel would say, pass the line and hit sometin.

    Former Rainbowtique clerk charged with stealing $12,000

    By Star-Advertiser staff

    POSTED: 05:38 p.m. HST, Aug 13, 2013

    LAST UPDATED: 06:32 p.m. HST, Aug 13, 2013

    A former Rainbowtique sales clerk is facing charges that he stole more than $12,000 from the Ward Centre store.

    An Oahu grand jury returned an indictment last week charging Brandon D. Adams with theft and computer fraud.

    Adams, 27, who lists a Hahaione Valley address, posted $11,000 bail Monday. His arraignment in state Circuit Court is scheduled for next week.

    According to the indictment, Adams stole the money from Oct. 24 to March 22.

  111. kawika49 August 14, 2013 1:13 pm

    and on offense, he would say; hit the first man u see. Oh and don’t close your eyes unless it’s Dana Kalima !

  112. gobows August 14, 2013 1:14 pm

    i was at brunswick, ga in 97-98 and they had those trucks driving around blowing smoke.

  113. oldtimer808 August 14, 2013 1:17 pm

    #85 You’re right it was simplier back in the days. We used to play tackle football barefoot, shorts in the mud next to Sumida Farm before Pearlridge and jumb in the spring water stream that ran thru the farm. Mr. Sumida wasn’t too happy that we got all that mud in the stream. He was a nice man. That was better than the water hose and hot feet on the asphalt road and we played wherever there was an open field even if had rocks and always barefeet. What were we to do we had no electronics like these kids have today. I have to tell my grandkids go play outside and get out of the house. Looking forward to the coming season win or lose. Go Rainbow Warriors!!!

  114. d1shima August 14, 2013 1:18 pm

    Get some going aroun hea stay blowin’ smoke! 😯 😉 😈

  116. kawika49 August 14, 2013 1:24 pm

    #85 In front of Leeward Hospital, btw Mr. Sumidas grand son was a back for Iolani under Coach Hamada. We used to use the cane haul road behind the Hospital to race our Jaka luck skate wheel powered carts.

  117. WarriorNY August 14, 2013 1:25 pm

    Hey guys,

    I saw this on another site. I thought I should share… “Rebuilding the Rainbow”

  118. boolakanaka August 14, 2013 1:29 pm

    119–Sumida Farm, or as we called it the watercress farm, we had many adventures there, with the most fav being collecting crayfish…which Mr. Sumida was not so fond of….I was the only non-japanese kid in my japanese school near our house.

  119. izzy August 14, 2013 1:35 pm


    Actually, the part I found most interesting is: What is it about High-status and Prius owners that makes many of them similar on “cheating” at 4-way stops? I wish I could see all of their data.

  120. koakane ® August 14, 2013 1:35 pm

    ok ok “nobody” like your alias name you wrong already

    now den I gotta help kifi out. all this stuff is from da legendary pohaku kkk ka’umanua jadine senior, stone as his players call him, long time head coach of lower puhale scorpions.

    first da reason why dem guys running around in da back is to confuse da opponents so dey no can figa out where you coming from.

    second the difference of the 5 technique from da 4 is 5 get one moa, how simple,elementary, ask da teachas wafan and jason

    finally the stunt is for the player 5’2 and unda to sneak in and get their cracks in aka stunt for short and blitz is for the taller guy to get crack so they no feel left out. das how team is developed.

    kifi get anymoa jus ask….have a good day and as the masta says play nice

  121. Leron August 14, 2013 1:47 pm

    Funny about the BMW study….was cutoff last night in the Ward parking lot by a Wahine in a Beeemer who didn’t stop at a four way stop so she could beat me to one of the only open parking spaces

  122. boolakanaka August 14, 2013 1:58 pm

    True story–back in the day, I was home from college….and it being Ala Moana, the week before xmas, well the place was choke with people. Anyway, I saw a parking spot, but being a young punk with no manners, I went the down the opposite way to beat this lady to the parking spot. Man, she Auntie was all huhu. Again, being a punk, I thought nothing of it, and proceeded my way to Patti’c Kitchen…but damn, I forgot my wallet. So, I walked all the way back to the car, and low and behold, Auntie, all 67 years of her, and her best holo-holo hat, from best I could tell, was letting the air out of my tires….damn, karma is a mean bi%ch.

  123. 702WarriorFan August 14, 2013 2:01 pm


    Maybe it’s all the bling in da car too distracting that no can see the stop signs. Wonder when the older and the most recent study were made?

    Generational behavior?

    If it was me(don’t drive beemer), I’d blame my implants!


    Sorry about your experience last night…..if was in LV, lots of gun fire and even from Metro wud have been flying. Nah, only keyed.

  124. jimmy the lock August 14, 2013 2:24 pm

    I remember, small kid time, my mom comes home from Ala Moana and tells us this lolo went the wrong way and stole her parking spot so she went let the air out of his tires. 😆 😀

  125. d1shima August 14, 2013 2:25 pm

    Any scoops from practice today?

  126. boolakanaka August 14, 2013 2:36 pm

    Not a shining moment for me….but damn Auntie gave me a piece of her mind, and I was lucky she didn’t karanng me with one of the 20 hawaiian bracelets she was sporting.

  127. PolyMom August 14, 2013 2:54 pm

    #21–ChowisPau, you know nothing about college football. If you did, you would remember that USC was ranked #1 per season. So nosh on that one.

    Take your hate elsewhere. Or are you just a fakata Trojan coward fan who is afraid of this season. You sound like the rest of the Trojan babies here in LA.

    Regarding Manziel, I’ve met him, he was gracious to sign footballs for me. How about keeping it real and waiting. I’m sure that Coach Sunlin will do the right thing.

    Hawaii has its own problems. I’m still wondering about Moniz and the point shaving allegations. Every team has their problems. Don’t throw rocks cause we got some glass houses there to.

  128. PolyMom August 14, 2013 2:57 pm

    BTW I’m a great driver and drive a BMW. Big deal. For those of you who drive a Mercedes, Volkswagen remember they were involved in killing Jews in the holocaust. Keep giving those murderers money by buying their products.

  138. Johnny Manziel is a War Criminal August 14, 2013 3:30 pm

    #134: possibly one of the most ignorant things I’ve read here. Mitsubishi also created the Japanese Zero and other japanese companies also contributed to the imperial war machine that committed atrocities across the pacific theater. The B-17s that were used to firebomb dresden (arguably a war crime) and the B-29s that were used to firebomb tokyo (arguably a war crime that caused more civilian casualties than both atomic bombs) were manufactured by boeing. Should we boycott all of those companies because they’re “murderers”?

    Holding current management and workers responsible for events that happened over 70 years ago and calling them “murderers” doesn’t really make a whole lot of sense. You like UH football, we get it. Get a grip, polymom.

    Did you live in Aiea town because I went to the Aiea Soto mission japanese school. I only lasted 2 weeks because I was put in the 5th grade and I started 7th grade at Aiea Intermediate and was lost plus the sensei kept wacking me with his long pointer stick. I should have stuck it out I might have learned something with all the welts.

  147. kawika49 August 14, 2013 4:44 pm

    #159 The Speedys store was called the Nagamine Store before the name change. The old Aiea Theatre was across the street and the pool hall was under the Santoki Store as you entered the old Aiea Town from Moanalua. The other theater was the Star theater which was on the corner as you made a right turn off of moanalua rd to aiea heights road. Sorry this has nothing to do with UH football. Naeole going to produce some nice offensive lineman and how did I determine that well because he is from Ka’a’awa, Kahuku High School, University of Colorado, NFL and that is my most scientific, biaslistic, analistic analysis.

  166. boolakanaka August 14, 2013 5:36 pm

    Kawika, and the other theater in Waipahu, which played the other movies….???! wink

  167. oldtimer808 August 14, 2013 5:36 pm

    Oh I never went to the Star theater because the roof was made of tin and I was afraid da roof was going fall in and I would miss the ending of the movie and not finish my star chocolate candy.

  168. tommui August 14, 2013 5:38 pm

    Speaking of cars, I drive a Japanese car except they don’t sell them in Japan and is manufactured in the US.

    I used to drive a German car except the Beemers are made in the US, Canada, Europe, China and a few other places.

    I have been looking at the Ford Fusion (can’t afford the Aston Martin), a good old USA car, except it is manufactured in Mexico.

    The great British car, the Jaguar and the Swedish SAAB and Volvo – made in India.

    The most popular car in China seems to be the Buick – and guess where they are being manufactured!

  169. boolakanaka August 14, 2013 5:39 pm

    Yes, knew the Nagamines well. In fact, I had my own stint working there. You remember Kurashige’s smaller store by the public library??? Couldn’t go to the poolhall, because my mom’s said, ” there are sniffers, over there”.

  170. boolakanaka August 14, 2013 5:40 pm

    Somewhat football related was that the Ursua family, and the one in the same, John Usua, who is on a mission, lived a block from Nagamines.

  171. oldtimer808 August 14, 2013 5:43 pm

    Looking forward to that young man John Ursua when he gets back from his mission. He looks like a terrific athlete.

  172. boolakanaka August 14, 2013 5:47 pm

    Tommynui, the car du jour in China is an Audi. Just went recently for work, and in fact, they have a nickname for Audis, that roughly translated means–big boss.

    Oh, and you are right on point about Naeole. My good friend is Doug Semones, and once when I was visiting with him, I met Chris. My first impression, was that he was bigger than some of the guys I played with in college…Chris was in HS at the time.

  175. d1shima August 14, 2013 6:03 pm


    Your buddy has a tough row to hoe at Oxy. Gotta get back over that CalLu hump in the SCIAC.

    I hope they can do it. Watching CalLu take cracks from Linfield is getting kinda stale…

  176. boolakanaka August 14, 2013 6:07 pm

    Dishima—Your right on point on that. But, if Doug can monopolize his Hawai’i connection and AZ connection, he can make some large improvements, and then go back to his alma mater. Back in the day. CalLu, was a haven for Div! transfers. I’m bummed he left Yale–I’m lonely without him……..

    #174 boolakanaka –

    The Audi – great German car – is also made in China, Indonesia, India etc.

    The point being that car manufacturers are made all over the world and moneys spent on cars may be going to pay the employees of those car manufacturers in Mexico or South Carolina, Mississippi, China etc.

    Yes BMW is a German brand. But they were not used and production was halted due to the war. Their vehicles were not used to transport Jews to camps to be exterminated. Folks might laugh but social conscience I. Killing 7 million innocent people should not be mocked. I promised never to even ride in a Mercedes ever.

    @ Tom Mui, I hear you. But only certain models of cars are made in Anerica. The Tundra and Prius are in Kentucky. The BMW X3 is made in Indiana. My son said Lexus is still made in Japan. The vin number would start with J and that’s how you know if that car was made in Japan.

    Have a great night.

  187. ChowIsPau August 14, 2013 7:45 pm

    @PolyMom you are so dumb it is hilarious. BMW made weapons for the Nazis and they had slave labor workers during the war. The owner of BMW himself has admitted this. What planet are you from? Or are you just some person who thinks they are so much better than everyone else?

    Why would you even think we care what kind of car you drive? How is that relevant? You have more problems than I can imagine.

  188. tommui August 14, 2013 8:31 pm

    The Infiniti is a “high-class” Nissan but the brand is not sold in Japan. It is manufactured in the U.S., Mexico, Taiwan and a couple other places.

    #193 chowispau: LOL. yes.

    #194 tommui: bad arguments (especially when said with a condescending holier than thou attitude) are bad arguments. Calling a spade a spade isn’t a crime. I mean, real talk: what she’s saying really is dumb.

    “I refuse to drive a mercedes because their management and workers at least tacitly supported the holocaust over 70 years ago, so that means RIGHT NOW, the company are a bunch of murderers, even though BMW also supported the german war effort and utilized the same slave labor as most other large german manufacturers back in that era did. But that’s okay, because BMW cars are manufactured in germany or america (even though profits go straight to the BMW regardless of where the parts are manufactured or final assembly takes place).

    And I’ll still fly boeing even though B-29s and B-17s took part in one of the largest firebombing operations on defenseless civilian populations the world has ever seen. And I probably still buy nike and other brand name apparel even though they’re made by CURRENT exploited de facto slave labor in free trade zones. And I probably still go to walmart even though they have very questionable business practices. Ah hell. I still frequent shopping areas and drive on freeways that were once native american land but was stripped by force by the US through a campaign of settler colonialism and genocide, but that’s PERFECTLY okay with me!”

    I mean, really. if you’re gonna use the holocaust argument for mercedes, but think nothing about owning a BMW, how far are you willing to take that argument? the hypocrisy is almost as apparent as her condescension.

  192. Konoman1 August 14, 2013 9:37 pm

  193. kev-1 August 14, 2013 9:59 pm

    I’ve read all kinds of arguments on this blog, but now I have seen it all. Don’t drive VWs and Mercedes cars because of what the Nazis did?

    I guess if you can afford a BMW (and like to take the opportunity to tell people on a football blog that you can) you can make any excuse you want for driving one.

    Toothpicks blown thru straws.

    NotNasti — a favorite 24-hour place was the Hungry Lion (Nuuanu). It was the site of the very first impromptu Cattle Call and was located right between DPK’s Punchbowl and my place. I was not invited because it was brought up on the blog on morning and arranged last-minute via telephone and no one had my number. 🙁

    The original attendees were Al, DPK, WreckinEyez, James [aka (Jesse)James] and Addahknowjoe, as I recall. The second Cattle Call a week later was announced on the blog by Al–and I was touched everyone asked if I saw the post… OK, so maybe I whined a little bit the week before. The first Camellia cattle call in March 2007. Here’s a passage related to that in my “Bus Stop” musing…

    …now I’m reading a blog named “The Warrior Beat”. It’s been months and I start to speak to the interesting and remarkable people that I met there. It is fun, it is informative, and I never thought I’d be so drawn in and accepted by a bunch of faceless strangers…

    A lunch at Camellia? I’m going. What’s your name? Can I have your email address? Here’s my card…do you have one? Where do you work? Yeah–I still get teased about that today. But I got the info. Was I planning to see them again?… go to tailgates, football games, parties, and karaoke? No. Not at that time….

    Anyway, today the 24-hour Likelike Drive Inn comes to mind. Some Tsai-kos have gone to Sorabol late at night in the “bubbling tofu soup” days…

    On the topics of late night eateries, the ohana, old crew, or whoever, always hit-up Old Village Noodle House, to make sure we cross the threshold of sobriety before hitting the freeway. Can’t beat it…plus, there are some characters in there late at night.

    Slayer, Tigi fell short academically. He can return to the team in the spring if he catches up.

    Great Morning All!

    Hoping that the HC is able to find more satisfaction with the offense’s execution at JBPHH.

    btw, although I’ve eaten there only at early evening times I think Sikdorak (in the heart of Koreamoku) would be an ideal Tsaiko late-night venue. 24-hour, $19.95 all-you-can-eat yakiniku! 🙂
