Ran into Michael Lafaele today. He said he just returned from a tryout with the Buffalo Bills. He said the Bills are evaluating their situation, and that there’s a possibility he might be invited to training camp.

Well, at least there’s a timetable for installing the new turf at Cooke … er, Ching Field.
According to Shannon Wood, UH has confirmed that July 1 is the deadline to submit an intent to bid on the project.
The deadline for submitting a bid is 2:30 p.m. July 11. On that day, the bids will be opened. The bid-opening meeting is open to the public.
Work on the field could start two weeks after that. There is a 90-day window to complete the project.

In our youth, few things are as precious as our rides. The best man at my wedding, Johnny Iwashita, used to call his car “The Cherry.” I had this white Toyota that I called “The Onion” because of its off-white color. My friends called it that because when you peeled open the door you wanted to cry. (OK, OK, I’m a little messy.)
Because of affordability and convenience, the best rides often have two wheels. Here’s running back Daniel Libre getting ready to go to work:
