Couple of minutes with … Cayman Shutter

The quarterback who came in from the cold — Cayman Shutter was born in Saskatchewan — has made a warm transition to Division I workouts. Shutter, a 2009 Punahou School graduate, has cayman1bonded with UH teammates and, during unsupervised workouts, has proven to be a leader. Shutter, who recently returned from a trip to Saskatchewan, took a couple of minutes to talk story with the Warrior Beat.
Saskatchewan, eh?
“It’s like in the middle of the prairies. It’s completely flat. No mountains, or anything. My whole family has lived there for, like, forever. I lived there until I was 10, and then moved over here. It’s definitely different weather. You get the extremes. You definitely get winter. It gets, like, negative 40. It’s a virtual opposite of Hawai‘i. It’s just different. You don’t have the mixture of cultures. You don’t have, obviously, the food that comes with it.”
And yet …
“Grandma’s mashed potatoes and gravy. That’s the best. She’s a skilled cook. Her home-made apple pie, that’s what I was looking forward to the most. She makes the pie crust and everything. It’s so good. She makes a roast with gravy, mashed potatoes, cooked vegetables, the whole deal.”
The transition.
“The first week, when I was doing classes at Manoa and then coming over here (for workouts), made it really hard, I also was at (Punahou’s) graduation practice. Getting the workouts was hard. I couldn’t come out for 7-on-7s. But I was at an advantage before that because I was out here during (unsupervised) spring workouts. Even from that point, I felt I was part of the team. It made the transition a lot easier.”
“I really like getting into the gym and lifting weights. I’m kind of addicted to lifting weights. I’m around 195 right now. I definitely don’t want to be too bulky. I was worried about that. Throwing a football involves a lot of finesse. I was trying to get the balance between pure strength and being able to finesse a football.”
There’s no “I” in “Quarterback Derby.”
“It doesn’t really feel like competition. We’re all out here trying to improve for the overall betterment of the team. As we all try to improve individually, the team will get better. That’s the whole idea. We’re all friends.”
Frenz 4 eva.
“The guys over here really welcomed me. That made it easy. I hang out with (wideout) Jovonte (Taylor) outside of workouts. (Running back) Leon (Wright-Jackson) and I play video games. it’s not just business with them. We’ve created a friendship already. That’s made it a lot easier to do my job as a quarterback.”

    Happy birthday Princess Leila and LK!

  6. 808Chef July 23, 2009 6:51 am

    Nice! I’m getting more and more excited to see our young stable of QBs for the years to come. Competition broods success!

    Hey stephen..any word on the workout info??

    Oh yeah!! Good Morning Hawaii!!!

  7. Stephen Tsai July 23, 2009 6:53 am

    E-mail your name and address.

  8. Stephen Tsai July 23, 2009 6:55 am

    I was just watching KHNL. They showed a national story about a guy who robbed a convenience store by pointing his finger under a shirt to pretend he had a gun.
    But …
    They blurred out the guy’s face.
    Because, yes, we must protect the privacy of a robber.

  9. Garret July 23, 2009 7:01 am

    Happy Birthday Princess Leila!

    Happy Birthday LK!

  10. Garret July 23, 2009 7:06 am


    Thank you for another great Q&A with a Warrior player, it is a great way for fans to get a little more background and to hear about how things are going. I am very happy to hear that from Shutter how nicely the team in bonding and how the QBs are dealing with the large number of QBs UH has now.

  11. LizKauai [iMac] Unite and Conquer! July 23, 2009 7:10 am

    Aloha Kakahiaka!

  12. 808Chef July 23, 2009 7:13 am

    DONE! Mahalo stephen! YOU DA MAN!!

  13. LizKauai [iMac] Unite and Conquer! July 23, 2009 7:13 am

    Hauoli Lahanau Princess Leila and LK!!!

    Thanks for the Shutter interview, ST!

  14. Stephen Tsai July 23, 2009 7:15 am

    All of the first-year QBs have been working hard, even though it would make sense for them to redshirt this year. There’s a lot of offense to learn.

  15. Bulla July 23, 2009 7:15 am

    happy burfday to the burfday girls!!!

    shutter looks good through ST’s shutter, haha, nice photos, and good to see a QB who is not afraid of hitting some iron….

  16. Bulla July 23, 2009 7:16 am

    i agree, the offense needs to be absorbed, it’s sort of like a hybrid, but youth knows all….as we all know from experience….haha

  17. LizKauai [iMac] Unite and Conquer! July 23, 2009 7:17 am

    You’ve probably seen this but here is a nice article about GA… the “Rainbows” starting QB:

  18. Stretch July 23, 2009 7:18 am

    Good Morning Tsaikos!!

    Happy Birthday to Princess Leila and LK!!

    Hope everyone hads a good day

  19. LizKauai [iMac] Unite and Conquer! July 23, 2009 7:18 am

    eh bulla- LK is not a girl…

  20. Bulla July 23, 2009 7:20 am

    my bad, i thought LK was for you….oh, what a boo boo

  21. Bulla July 23, 2009 7:20 am

    haha, that is pretty funny though……i apologize…..bad boy, back to the cave…

  22. LizKauai [iMac] Unite and Conquer! July 23, 2009 7:21 am

    TO COLT: SAFE HOME TO THE EAST COAST! We will be looking for you on August 13 -vs- the Ravens … if we can find a broadcast, that is!

  23. NYUH July 23, 2009 7:23 am

    Ferd’s article was interesting. I think the Wed night game at LT is the most important of the season.

    The ESPN show was characteristic of the network’s lack of research and depth. Nice stroll down memory lane but not a mention of Alexander or even McMackin. Congrats to Colt for being the best football player from Hawaii. I didn’t see that poll. Did someone post it?

  24. LizKauai [iMac] Unite and Conquer! July 23, 2009 7:24 am

    Haha, bulla 😆

    HI HO- Happy Thursday!

  25. Slugger July 23, 2009 7:26 am

    Happy Birthday, Princess Leila!!!

    Happy Birthday, LK!!!

    Aloha Kakahiaka!

    Looking forward to seeing LWJ have a breakout season. Chizzy looking good.

  26. Kekoa July 23, 2009 7:45 am

    Had to push this buggah ovah from da old Post Toastie…

    Happy Birthday to the Warrior Princess. You wear your title well. As we head into this season, I’m looking forward to viewing your best camera work. Few fans get to see the hard work you put in. I see you roaming the sidelines at every practice and of course each game.

    Please put together a cameo piece on each of the Warriors who make the starting roster on offense/defense. It would be interesting for us to take a closer look at the play makers of this year’s team.

    Mahalo Princess!…and enjoy your ‘Born in Hawaii’ day!

  27. koakane™ July 23, 2009 7:49 am

    morning to all and have a good day

    adding my hippo birdie two ewe to Leila. enjoy your many treats I am sure you’ll be getting

    Fear La Tech ……….. then go to Ruston and beat them. Should be a great game.

    Happy Brithday to the Princess. I’m figuring she must get about two marriage proposals a week?

  33. Bulla July 23, 2009 8:31 am

    i wish the little bambino could get up there, no he has to settle for Gerber Fieldhouse at Saint Louis or 24 hour fitness. with the way he was consuming tri tip steaks last night, i am going hunting tonight for lani moo 🙂

    isn’t tomorrow a special birthday too?

  38. J-Dog July 23, 2009 8:49 am

    Great post. Interesting to hear how new players fit in with the current players. Also nice to see Leon and Chizzy working out together. Hopefully our running game is much improved this season.

    Do the other running backs workout with them as well? Funaki? Rego? Where’s Alex Green?

  39. Stephen Tsai July 23, 2009 8:55 am

    I asked Jovonte about Alex Green.
    He’s due this week, Jovonte said.

  40. Stephen Tsai July 23, 2009 8:57 am

    It’s interesting how they worked on the shovel passes. They put down blocking pads to create running lanes. For the first part, they worked on selling the pass block. Then they rolled into the shovel. It reminded me of a basketball pick-and-roll play.

  41. Stephen Tsai July 23, 2009 8:58 am

    Re: Crown.
    It comes in a really cool case.

  42. Da Punchbowl Kid July 23, 2009 9:00 am

    Good Morning Gangeez! 🙂

    Nice to get the story on Shutter. Like folks have mentioned, hella competition amongst the young QBs.

    Work them shovel passes! That’s a bread and butter play when we can run it.

  43. wafan July 23, 2009 9:03 am

    Good humid morning everyone!

  44. Da Punchbowl Kid July 23, 2009 9:04 am

    And Happy Birthday to the once and future princess of the blog. Ms. Leila herself. May your birthday be as happy and bright as you make us all feel! 🙂

    Happy Birthday to LK, whoever that person is. 🙂

  45. wafan July 23, 2009 9:04 am

    Good to see the shovel/shuttle being worked.

  46. wafan July 23, 2009 9:07 am

    Happy birthday to the Her Highness, the Esteemed Princess Leila.

    Oh, and to LK, too.

    I do not think that is LizK, though — she would be in her 90’s were it so. Glad I am here and not there. The emotional bruises would be ugly. HA!

  47. BG July 23, 2009 9:08 am


    Double take on #41…thought you were talking about Royal Crown and thinking to myself…”yeah, the bag is so nice and useful for all kine stuff”

  48. wafan July 23, 2009 9:09 am

    Time to be a pin cushion!

  49. BG July 23, 2009 9:09 am

    Oppsie…meant Crown Royal…

  53. A-House July 23, 2009 9:27 am

    A most Happy Birfday to the radiant Princess Leila, in the Miss Hawaii outfit, and LK the master crafter who is the source of the Tsaiko name tags.

  54. Colomaohana July 23, 2009 9:28 am

    C rM: Yes, almost everyone behaves…Especially when ST is in da’ house! Hahahaha…..

    If they don’t, I think someone should call Esme to come with her rolled up newspaper to give lickens!!!! She’s famous for doing so on the Pink Side. Plenny naughty ones over there….

  55. Garret July 23, 2009 9:31 am

    LK is not Liz…LK is the Tsaiko who made the awesome nametags!

  56. LizKauai [Believer] July 23, 2009 9:32 am

    DPK- LK makes & donates our Tsai-ko nametags.

  57. LizKauai [Believer] July 23, 2009 9:32 am

    Hi Garret… good timing!

  58. LizKauai [Believer] July 23, 2009 9:33 am

    LK is also a berry berry good photog.

  59. Garret July 23, 2009 9:33 am

    Oops, A-House explained LK’s background as I was typing up my post.

    I’ll give you dat…….Enjoy your power naps….. 😉

  61. Garret July 23, 2009 9:37 am

    The Las Vegas Sun is wondering whether or not UNLV needs an Athletic Director. I didn’t realize that an SEC school got rid of its Athletic Director and their Athletic Department!

    To show how important an athletic director is to winning and losing at the NCAA level, Vanderbilt of the Southeastern Conference eliminated the position six years ago.

    Last year, a feature story in USA Today proclaimed that Vanderbilt is “enjoying unprecedented on-field success” in both high- and low-profile sports. It even won the national bowling championship.

    Vanderbilt eliminated not only the position of athletic director (a savings of about $300,000 per year and who knows how many rounds of golf on the school’s nickel), but also the athletic department, per se. A law professor and vice chancellor of university affairs was put in charge of athletics.

    Vanderbilt doesn’t have an athletic director and it’s doing fine. Colleges now teach athletic administration as part of business school. And the UNLV athletic department already is getting a huge chunk of its budget from the group that runs its facilities — and brings in rodeos, monster trucks, the Wiggles and U2.

  62. homey ℞ July 23, 2009 9:38 am

    Good morning all.

    Happy Birthday Princess Leila and LK. Hi Faye!

    Where is the cc today?

  63. Garret July 23, 2009 9:39 am

    I know that the MWC chose CSTV over ESPN because of money–this part of the article seems to indicate that the difference was $500k per year per school.

    I will defer to one of the posters on the Sun’s message boards who said what UNLV needs is “someone who understands that you lose more than you gain when you switch from ESPN to College Sports TV in exchange for an extra $500,000 — and lose untold millions by rendering your major sports programs invisible to all but their most dedicated fans.”

  64. Garret July 23, 2009 9:40 am

    LSU is sending their band to Seattle for their game against U-Dub…must be nice having all that TV money to spend.

    The Pac-10 has been talking budget cuts all summer. Perhaps the LSU band can contribute some theme music to the effort.

    A dirge?

    The “Golden Band from Tigerland” will make the 2,000-mile trip from Baton Rouge to Seattle for the Tigers opener at Washington on Sept. 5.

  65. koakane™ July 23, 2009 9:43 am

    oh homey planning a cc today? jj wants to know where

  66. Garret July 23, 2009 9:44 am


    Funny how you and I must have been typing at the same time about LK.

    I’ll call Momo today to see if he saw your post. There are some family things that have probably kept Mrs. Momo and him extra busy since Saturday.

  67. koakane™ July 23, 2009 9:45 am

    Happy Birthday to Princess Leila. The crown and banner sure is a nice fit … she really could be a Miss Hawaii!

  70. Richie July 23, 2009 9:52 am

    Nice clip on Cayman Shutter. Just think, if Leon Wright-Jackson ever got over his fear of getting hit, he would be a great running back. He has all the tools. Maybe he should be working on hitting drills (to work through his fears) rather than playing video games with Cayman.

  71. LizKauai [Believer] July 23, 2009 9:53 am

    Thanks, Garret!

    While it’s good to hear about the first year guys getting familiar with the system I hope that the vets are spending even more time working together over the summer.

  92. homey ℞ July 23, 2009 10:31 am

    I could lose 17 lbs. in 3 months…if I wanted to. Hypothetically speaking, if I was oh say around 190 lbs…*do the math*…That means after 3 months I would be 173 lbs. I change my mind, no can do.

  93. al July 23, 2009 10:32 am

    I forget, it’s been too long now, but I believe this bakery was located near the prison on Dillingham Blvd.?…..they used to have this lilikoi cake, or was the frosting on it??…anyways, it was grand; which begs me to ask what kind of cake these bertday babies a8e today? hmmmmm??

  104. al July 23, 2009 10:47 am

    and i’d take the burrito.

  105. homey ℞ July 23, 2009 10:51 am

    wf2 – I guess we interpret the photos differently. In Leon’s picture I picture the qb throwing the shuffle from a higher position and the ball is already in its downward path. As for chizzy, his body angle determined his hand placement.

  106. LizKauai [Believer] July 23, 2009 10:51 am

    m-homey- I am CLOSE to that weight now… wanna challenge??? Winner gets to have an oyster on October 😆

    Ralph- you like long johns???
    Didn’t seem the type…

    nahnahnah… you’ll have to wrestle Mrs.d1島 for one.

  107. al July 23, 2009 10:52 am

    wf2….what we don’t see is where the ball ends up and the final hands up or down position.

    maybe you should give ron lee a call and do some volunteer coaching during camp.

  108. SteveM July 23, 2009 10:52 am

    Sorry folks, I’ve been down with the FLU this week and did not follow up with Bulla or notice if he posted anything on the Cattle Call that was supposed to be today.

    I guess make your own today. Sorry I can’t make it.

    🙁 just got over the sinus infection cold last week and I get a nasty flu this week–lost my sense of taste for two days and only getting it back today. Been sleeping a lot and tending my farm in my few waking moments….better than playing sudoku.

  129. A-House July 23, 2009 12:55 pm

    ah yes, Dee Lite Bakery – best darn chiffon cakes, ever, in Hawaii until the local owner/baker sold it to the Japanese and down hill since then

    da Japanese got this thing about very dry breads/pun, cakes, etc which removes it from the moistness of Hawaii’s taste for Guava and Lilikoi chiffon cakes.

    found out a long time ago, NEVER, NEVER order hot cakes in Japan – you need a saw to cut it or you can make believe its a freezbee and fling it around the room.

    best “ready-mix” batter is from Kroeger’s – just add water, stir, cook and chow down!!!!! – light, fluffy, moist!!!

  130. A-House July 23, 2009 1:03 pm

    Hands positioning – below the waist, palms up – above the waist, palms down or straight – is this correct? recall learning this from my Little League coach. major teaching point is “soft hands”; catch the ball with your hands and bring the ball into your body in one simultaneous motion; stiff arms will surely make the ball bounce out of your hands and reason for the phrase “lead hands”.

    ever see major league baseball players trying to catch a sinking fly ball with the palm of the glove facing down? almost always the ball will bounce away from the player.

  181. Garret July 23, 2009 2:53 pm

    Nice mention of Bess here.

    Ginn will likely start opposite Davone Bess, who has also been receiving rave reviews this offseason. Though he’s only slightly bigger than Ginn, Bess seems more likely to develop into a true No. 1 receiver for the Dolphins. Greg Camarillo returns from a knee injury to rejoin the team and will fight for a return to the starting lineup. My prediction would be to see more of Ginn playing out of the slot to get the ball in his hands and use his speed in open space. Bess, however, did rack up 54 receptions for 554 yards last season, and most out of that came from playing the slot. Rookie Patrick Turner has been turning heads this offseason and at 6’5″, he could be involved in red zone packages.

  182. Garret July 23, 2009 2:55 pm

    Bad news about RGM…the guy that replaced him “for just one game” according to their coach might have taken his spot.

    Sophomore Rufus Skillern saw his first action of the year and picked up 55 yards on two receptions with 46 coming on one play in the third quarter. His quality showing may give Buono a reason to keep Ryan Grice-Mullen parked on the sidelines.

    Good evening, Tsaiko-Nation and Tsai-Meister.

    Happy B-Day Princess and LK.

    Just watched my Tivo, America has Talent was on, and to my amazement, this little Girl, all of 8 years old, from Honolulu, Hawaii, started to sing and totally blew my socks of. She definately had Hawaiian and Filipino blood, the rest I couldn’t tell. Her name was Hawaiian and the crowd and judges fell totally in love with her, myself included..

    Her voice would have been amazing on a 20 year old. Needless to say, she made the Las Vegas round.

    Normally I’m somewhat jaded about stuff like that, but this little girl was truly special. Has anybody else seen her? She’s worth it for sure. She sounds better at 8, then Trias did at 19.

    That girl really did do a great job–Lori and I watched it the night it was shown.

    I think that there are 160 people/groups that made it to the Vegas round, which starts next week. That means that her parents got a free trip to Vegas plus spending money!

    Out of the 160 people, 40 will make the next round. The Vegas round already happened and there is no voting by the public.

    If she makes the top 40, then the public will get to vote…and I’m guessing she will do very well with the vote, and not just from Hawaii, if she continues to sing well.

    The way they do the final cuts to the 40 is that they put the groups in categories and pick a certain number from each category. There haven’t been that many great singers this year as compared to the previous years, so I think that she has a chance to make it. Before her I didn’t like any of the kid singers in the previous rounds, and they always save a spot or two for kid singers.

    So, as long as she is within the best 2 or 3 kid singers, she should make it to the final 40. The big thing will be the pressure and the exhaustion of all the performances she will have to do.

  213. Garret July 23, 2009 3:56 pm

    The Patriots have signed 6 of their 9 draft picks. Their 3rd-round pick will miss the season due to a knee injury so they don’t have to worry about signing him before training camp. Unfortunately, Ingram is one of the other 2 picks they haven’t signed.

    Three selections — second-round pick Patrick Chung, third-round selection Tyrone McKenzie and sixth-round pick Jake Ingram — remain unsigned. At last report, there was cause for optimism around Chung’s negotiations, while sources indicate that talks around Ingram’s contract have hit a small snag. McKenzie reportedly suffered a season-ending knee injury in rookie minicamp, which would remove some of the urgency to get a deal done with the South Florida product.

    Happy birthday! Princess Leila, didn’t know we shared birthdays.

    Thank you all for your well wishes. Sorry I didn’t reply earlier, I was out of AT&T range and unable to lurk until I got back into the office.

    Jason, congratulations on your job at your alma mater. Mold them young minds right.

    LizKauai, Garret and A-House thanks for the clarification, I rarely post nowadays, so a lot of bloggers wouldn’t know who I am, although I do lurk as often as possible.

    If you haven’t gotten a Tsai-ko badge yet, remember to update SteveM’s site when attending a tailgate, KK, or BCS bowl game. If I’m there, I’ll try to make sure that those in attendance will get their Tsai-ko badge.

    hi-ho, hi-ho, it’s back to work I go.

    Today’s update for the contract talks for David Veikune:

    Negotiations with second-round picks Brian Robiskie, Mohamed Massaquoi and David Veikune are going nowhere, sources said.

    A sticking point with some of the agents has been the Browns’ rookie report date of today. It’s the earliest in the NFL and was set, they believe, to force negotiations. Browns veterans are not scheduled to report until July 31, and that is being treated as the truer deadline to cut a deal. The first team practice is the next day.

    It appeared a week ago that Veikune would be signed by today, but negotiations have since cooled.

  246. Stephen Tsai July 23, 2009 6:56 pm

    I usually let a lot of things go.
    Free speech, and all, although that’s not a guarantee under the rules of our blogs.
    The one thing I try to emphasize is civility toward others ESPECIALLY on days I give birthday shoutouts to family members. There was one who went off on my daughter’s birthday, and that’s just not cool.
    And for someone to have a hissy fit on the Princess’ birthday, when her relatives and friends are reading, well, that’s just not going to be tolerated.
    So let’s all play nicely.
    As I’ve said before, we’re one of the few blogs that allows immediate posts. That’s a privilege that is not guaranteed. You don’t really want editors monitoring posts.

    “She signed a picture for me and it kind of got out in the public that she signed a picture for me, ’cause I was a big fan of hers when I first got here, and I guess for NCAA regulations, they had to take the picture back. So Stephanie I need my picture back and I need it signed and give me a shout out one of these days alright, I’m a big fan!” said Brennan.

    Sadly, my girls aren’t into puzzles right now. Between EA Sports Active on the Wii (at least they are learning some technique for volleyball, basketball, etc.), their chemistry set, weaving, card games, and their normal pretend play stuff, they just don’t have time for puzzles I guess.

    Mika is at school all day and Lori and the girls get home around 5:30pm from Mika’s school and dinner is at 6pm, with only a little play time after that…so, they have had to prioritize their time. One problem is that puzzles less than 500 pieces are too easy for them and puzzles 500 pieces or more take too long.

    I agree with Brew. It is the application of any subject that is exciting!

    My “mathematics is boring” comment was directed at the new teacher! There is beauty with elegant ballet between numbers and theory. It is (can be) fun when you’re first learning about all of it – but it’s even better when you realize that mathematics is really a tool to better understand real problems in life. Garret – I think you know my supposition. 😀

  326. Jason July 23, 2009 9:27 pm

    If anything, I’m more of an applied mathematician. But UH is geared more toward pure mathematics.

    “We can track a post to a precise computer.”

    Hmmm. I doubt it. You can track a post to a specific public ip address (which could be spoofed or tunneled). The IP address could have one or hundreds of computers behind it. If the geeks at HA can tell which of the four computers in my house I post a comment from — and can tell reliably when I switch — the beer is on me.

    I am not saying that it absolutely cannot be done. I am only saying that the NSA hasn’t yet taken the HA under its wing.

  343. Pride. July 23, 2009 10:12 pm

    Great pictures of LWJ by ST. ST in two photos kind of shows us the problems that LWJ has had in the offense in the past. In the first photo Leon’s left foot and hips are pointed about 30 degrees from the LOS. In the second photo Leon appears to have feet and hips pointed almost directly to the sideline. Either position would be okay for a scatback, but not for Leon. He is a rather good sized back with lots of speed. His speed at this point is a detriment because he’s got so much momentum going toward the sidelines. It’s tougher for him to square his shoulders upfield and get positive yards than say Kealoha Pilares could. Hopefully he can learn how to stay under control with his hips down low and pivot real hard off of that outside foot and square his shoulder to the LOS. That will give him better vision and enable him to deliver blows instead of receiving blows in that inferior position with his hips and shoulders angled toward the sideline. He won’t be able to do it unless he can learn to stay real low on the turn and learn the proper footwork.

    I really believe that LWJ is the most dangerous back around when his shoulders are square to the line of scrimmage.

    Great Slugger, someone finally uncovered my secret. I was never on the football team. I lied about the whole deal. I apologize for doing that.

    If you look at the pictures of the cheerleading squad from 1978 to 1981, you will see me at the top of the pyramid. Look real close because I don’t look that same now as I did back then.

  348. Slugger July 23, 2009 10:23 pm

    Pssst, Pride.

    The first pic is LWJ and the second pic is Chizzy. But an enlightening analysis for me who doesn’t know anything about football mechanics.

  349. d1島 July 23, 2009 10:24 pm


    The only thing I was wondering about when I saw the pictures was: Can they all throw and catch with shirts on?

  350. Slugger July 23, 2009 10:25 pm


    You still got the bod! Big pyramid… :))

  351. Da Punchbowl Kid July 23, 2009 10:25 pm

    Speakin’ of farms, Sweety went down to the Blaisdell Center’s Farmers’ Market yesterday and brought home the best tasting tomatoes and asparagus I have ever eaten, awesome stuff. She got some baby bok choi, green onions and Kona honey too. The produce was super cheap.

    I guess this opens me up for all kinds of tomato and asparagus jokes. Go ahead. I can take it!

    Pride ~ I’m working on squaring my shoulders to the Buffet line. Along with that, my footwork is allowing me to shuffle to the left or right at a 90 degree angle to the BL. I do believe I’m doing so with much better agility and speed.

    BTW Pride ~ What is an SAT? Does it have anything to do with where I’ve been sitting?

  377. Garret July 24, 2009 4:18 am

    Ferd is correct that the MWC is greedy and that their commissioner is just looking out for the interests of their teams. But isn’t that his job? I’d rather have a commissioner like that then someone like Karl Benson who just lets things go downhill without getting the publicity for the WAC.

    The MWC commissioner’s plan for the BCS was pretty clever. In the interest of “fairness”, he came up with a plan that would have the MWC join the BCS and keep all of the other non-BCS conferences out of the BCS. Sure that was greedy also…but he’s just doing his job.

  378. Garret July 24, 2009 4:20 am

    It is awesome that Coach Mac’s show will be broadcast around the country! That is a perfect tool for recruiting, and it won’t cost UH any money.

    “This is just an outstanding deal,” McMackin said. “I give full credit to Rick Blangiardi and Liz Chun and the production staff of the show. They’ve made it special, and been recognized nationally. It’s going to be such a great thing for our program as far as recruiting goes. It’s a very positive, exciting thing to happen.”

  379. βρεω808 July 24, 2009 4:25 am

    Garret – Good morning! Yes, another good read by Ferd. I often wonder if the WAC commissioner is really that apathetic, and/or incompetent! It seems he only gets “spun” up only when it involves his alma mater! 😈 😯 🙄

    DeWayne Wise made a *Sparkling* defensive play to preserve the perfect game.

    The playmakers always rise to the occasion. I have witnessed it happen many times before. With this 2009 edition of UH Warriors, I’m excited at the prospect of watching spectacular offense and defensive plays unfold before our Geico Google Eyes!

    Great to hear that the Coach Mac show is going to get national exposure, though to be honest with you I had to look up the Fox College Sports Network and see if it’s even carried on my local cable system.
