    good morning Ryan Henry. I am wishing you and your new found buddies a bright future!

    thanks for the plug.

    in 2 days, the bid thing on the CookeChing Field fix becomes public. then we can focus in on “where” is the problem in FIXING THE FIELD NOW. “spinning” and “blaming” will not eliminate identification of the problem;Tsaikos can fix the problem because we have access to “Roger Hill” – the people/person who can fix things that are broken in the UH football world. “We’re on it, Coach.”

    Me too- from last blog post:
    “9:10 a.m. ET

    Meanwhile, At Practice…

    It’s quarterback and wide receiver drills. The wide receivers are running a variety of pass routes.

    Santana Moss drew applause with a deep sideline grab. He remains smooth as silk.

    Colt Brennan showed he can apply what he learned on the field. (Earlier the QBs worked on throwing on the run.) The rookie quarterback rolled right and threw a dart to first-year player Burl Toler.

    Antwaan Randle El ran across field and pulled in a pass from first-year quarterback Derek Devine. ”

  20. Garret July 23, 2008 5:46 am

    BTW…Fresh Choice??? Wow, that’s a HUGE difference from the Hawaii Cattle Calls… Why not Hukilau (SF, Palo Alto or SJ) or one of the MANY L&L’s


    I’m sorry that you will be out of town and cannot make the Bay Area gathering. Hopefully there will another one in the future that will be organized by the Bay Area folks…or I’ll have an excuse to go to the Bay Area again and will try to set something up.

    When I posted a couple of weeks ago if anyone in the Bay Area would be interested in a Cattle Call in early August, I didn’t get any response on the blog or in e-mail. However, I did find out that A-Joe and A-Sports were traveling to the Bay Area and have some days of overlap with my trip. So, we looked for a time that would work to meet up. Another constraint is that it needed to be near SFO for a couple of reasons, which ruled out Hukilau and none of the L&Ls were near where we needed to meet.

    If this was a regular Bay Area Cattle Call, where everyone would have a car to drive to the gathering, then it could be held somewhere else. But given the logistical constraints, I think we found a nice option.

  21. Garret July 23, 2008 5:47 am

    Bay Area Cattle Call! I don’t think that the Bay Area Tsaikos have had a meeting before…with brew808, A-Joe, and A-Sports there I hope some of the Bay Area posters/lurkers show up!

    August 9 (Saturday)
    11 am until ??? (this is a buffet after all)
    Fresh Choice

    Go Elimimian go!

  23. Garret July 23, 2008 5:48 am

    4th is at least 1 spot too low for the Warriors…but it is just a preseason prediction and it provides extra motivation for the Warriors.

    Sol is an excellent choice, and Adam would have been also. UH is blessed to have both of them, plus Blaze, Brad, R.J, and on and on!

  24. Garret July 23, 2008 5:53 am

    The Las Cruces paper has such poor WAC coverage compared to what we get in Hawaii! We are lucky to have people like ST and Ferd covering the Warriors.

    The Aggies are expected to be picked in the bottom half of the competitive WAC once again. While many look at Fresno State as a perennial powerhouse, Boise State can never be discounted, as well as Nevada and Hawaii.

  25. Garret July 23, 2008 5:54 am

    Nice article on Ken Nuimatalolo.

    Nuimatalolo, born in Hawaii of Polynesian descent, praised the many remarkable coaching examples and mentors he has had in his life, including John Robinson, former head coach of the University of Southern California, University of Nevada-Las Vegas and the National Football League’s then-Los Angeles Rams. “He was humble and treated all people with respect, and I will never forget that Christlike example,” Niumatalolo said. He got to know Robinson well while serving on the coaching staff at UNLV.

    He also spoke of Paul Johnson, former Navy head football coach who is now at Georgia Tech. He and Johnson first began working together when Niumatalolo was quarterback at the University of Hawaii and Johnson was offensive coordinator.

  26. Garret July 23, 2008 5:56 am

    Reno’s paper has a good article about the WAC. I didn’t realize that Nevada was being mentioned for a possible BCS bowl spot…I’d never read that anywhere before.

    1. Can another WAC team crash the BCS party?

    A WAC team has reached one of the Bowl Championship Series’ six bowl games in each of the last two seasons (Boise State in 2006 and Hawaii in 2007), but it will be very difficult this season. Fresno State, Boise State and Nevada are the three most mentioned among WAC contenders this year, and all have tough non-conference schedules. Fresno has Rutgers and UCLA on the road and Wisconsin at home; Boise State is at Oregon and Southern Miss; and Nevada hosts Texas Tech before playing at Missouri.

    2. What will happen to Hawaii?

    The Warriors had a magical run last year, culminating in the Football Bowl Subdivision’s only perfect regular season and then a 41-10 loss to Georgia in the Sugar Bowl. Hawaii, though, lost a great deal of talent, including record-setting QB Colt Brennan and his top four receivers, and June Jones bolted for greener pastures at SMU, leaving Hawaii with a new head coach (former defensive coordinator Greg McMackin) and two new coordinators. It’s hard to imagine Hawaii falling below .500, but the Warriors are clearly the WAC’s biggest unknown.

  27. Garret July 23, 2008 5:58 am

    None of UH’s games are going to decide the WAC champion? Reno’s paper is REALLY assuming that UH will not matter in the WAC race!

    5. Which five games will decide the conference champion?

    In chronological order, they are: Fresno State at Louisiana Tech (Nov. 1); Nevada at Fresno State (Nov. 7); Boise State at Nevada (Nov. 22); Fresno State at Boise State (Nov. 28); and Nevada at Louisiana Tech (Nov. 29). The hunch is the title will not have been decided entering that final weekend (Hawaii hosts Cincinnati on Dec. 6 in the final WAC regular-season game).

  28. Garret July 23, 2008 6:00 am

    Article about the WAC gathering from a Boise perspective.

    When the Western Athletic Conference decided to pick Salt Lake City as the host city of its annual WAC football preview, it was done with a specific agenda in mind.

    That agenda?

    To re-establish the WAC in one of its old strongholds.

    Last season, Benson’s message was that the WAC has become the second most recognizable conference (behind the Pac-10) in the West, a jab at the Mountain West for sure. This year, it looks like he and the WAC want to drive that message home in the heart of its core audience.

    “To come into what has been the last 10 years, a Mountain West market, and to come into Salt Lake City and re-establish Salt Lake City as a WAC market,” Benson said. “Because of Boise Sate, because of Hawaii, because of Fresno State, we can clearly claim that the WAC is back.”

    In the last two years, both Boise State and Hawaii have made a Bowl Championship Series bowl game, while Fresno State recently won the baseball national championship.

  29. Garret July 23, 2008 6:01 am

    More talk about Fresno’s BCS hype.

    In the last two seasons, the preseason choice by coaches and the media to win the conference have gone on to play in BCS games — Boise State in 2006 and Hawaii in 2007.

    The likely pick to win the conference when the polls are unveiled today is Fresno State, a team that returns 10 offensive starters and is coming off a Humanitarian Bowl win.

    “It’s amazing to be talked about like that,” senior tight end Bear Pascoe said. “But at the same time, those expectations will mean nothing if we can’t accomplish what we want on the field.”

  30. Garret July 23, 2008 6:02 am

    Sporting News took a shot at UH.

    Hawaii, 2008 Sugar Bowl. Hawaii lost so badly they should have lost their apostrophe due to the impact of Georgia’s offensive linemen crashing into Colt Brennan. Undefeated going into the game, Hawaii slid into the Boise State upstart-BCS-contender of the year-slot and then slid into a tree shredder. Seeing Colt Brennan beat into submission in the first half with five sacks, a fumble for a TD, and an interception was bad; watching Hawaii struggle with the snap count, refuse to change it due to the noise, and then all but telling Georgia when to get a head start on the ball was worse. Outplayed, outcoached, outmanned, and outgunned, Hawaii went from upstart to scalded dog in a half of brutal football. As a viewer, the only solace came when Brennan was finally knocked out of the game, thus ending the torture portion of the programming for the night.

  31. Garret July 23, 2008 6:03 am

    The Idaho Statesman got the WAC preseason defensive picks correct.

    The media needed to stare deep into their crystal balls this year to choose the WAC preseason players of the year.

    On offense, the race is muddled by a wealth of returning talent – Boise State tailback Ian Johnson, Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick, Nevada tailback Luke Lippincott, Fresno State running back Ryan Mathews, Fresno State tight end Bear Pascoe, New Mexico State quarterback Chase Holbrook and even Boise State wide receiver Jeremy Childs, who was removed from the roster for the spring semester.

    On defense, voters likely took a long look at Hawaii’s two returning All-WAC linebackers – Adam Leonard and Solomon Elimimian.

    My prediction: Commish Benson gives another “unit citation” at year-end All-WAC pronouncement – this time for for Hawaii’s LB corp.

  36. djmitcho July 23, 2008 6:17 am

    Reno’s paper can’t even get easy facts correct (“A WAC team has reached one of the Bowl Championship Series’ six bowl games in each of the last two seasons…” um there are only 5 BCS games). I’m not taking what they say very seriously. Thanks for the posts. You make life on the blog a lot easier.

  37. NYUH July 23, 2008 6:21 am

    “biggest unknown” is a fair statement, for anyone outside Hawaii. But it will be a tough 4, maybe 5 way competition for WAC champs.

    I wish RGM had come back but I don’t think its fair to expect football players to start for more than three years. Besides, with Lane, Lofton, Salas, Bain, Washington, Pilares and the new JC recruits we have a lot of talent catching the ball.

    Re: 30

    I laugh to myself when I read comments like that. If you are going to insult my team with a crack about the name our team and state share, then you should at least make sure you use the right name. As I am sure everyone (even da guys who nevah go Kamehameha) knows an `okina is not an apostrophe. Rookies! Sheesh!

    Now… Morning Tsaikos

  40. d1shima July 23, 2008 6:37 am

    Agreed. Good talent overall at receiver positions.
    Also the fact that Lane, Salas, Bain, Washington and Graunke were all one unit last year may be a benefit. Although there’s nothing like game experience, these guys took a lot of practice reps together last year.

    Who is Roger Hill in your #13 post above? And what is the situation about the Jugs? Perhaps you could give a recap here. Wasn’t one fixed and back in use while a repair shop was fixing the other?

    How much is a new one?

    STRETCH: Mailed the HI-5 redemption check + matching donation to Na Koa to your Lihue address.

    The slightly reconfigured recycling bins are being delivered to the Athletic Department office in about two hours.


    Teri Chang, Assistant Athletic Director for Facilities in charge of all the Lower Campus sports venues as well as the Athletic Department buildings, called about upcoming UH Manoa service projects.

    The first one to be held in August will be in-house only as a team or spirit-building exercise for Athletic Department staff to help launch the 2008 – 2009 academic year and to support the first three sports in their new season – football, women’s soccer & women’s volleyball.

    Future workdays will be open to the larger community of UH supporters and will include a wide range of tasks & chores to be determined after the first service project has been completed.

    Teri will keep Warrior Beat bloggers informed. All kinds of skills will be needed including help with registration & refreshments.

    CHING/COOKE FIELD BID PROCESS: The bids will be opened shortly after 2:30 pm on Friday, July 25, in the Procurement Office located almost directly across the street from the Stan Sheriff Center. The public is invited to attend.

    boy, every time i type your name, seems like i feel i’m getting to no yu bettah!
    ya see, Roger Hill is the guy who fixes football stuff. actually, he fixes all kine sports stuff.
    a new JUGS is advertised for a little more than $2K, according to what Jason and (I think was AJoe)posted here some weeks ago, plus shipping, if my memory is correct. Shirley at Roger Hill Enterprises, Pearl City, is faxing me the cost. give me your fax # and I’ll shoot you a copy from my fax 961-3998. JUGS1 was fixed a couple weeks ago and has been back at UH since then. JUGS2 needed 1 motor and the console replaced and that just got fixed yesterday, assuming the testing at UH went well yesterday. I was told the cost for both parts was (over $500) I’ll know more today as she faxed/faxing me the bill for parts and labor.
    Any little bit helps. Main thing is they got fixed without a whole lot of rigamarole. Makes me feel good that I/we helped US a little bit. 😀 Thanks for asking whuz Roger Hill. as to me, he’s da man!

    btw, howz my english today? 😀 yu can correk me aneetiim. 😆

  73. Garret July 23, 2008 8:27 am

    Yo Garret!

    Maybe one of these days we can host a Bay Area Cattle Call at my hotel. Small kine pupus you know. Our lobby bar is pretty stocked with the area’s brews and regional wines. Maybe we can figure it out sometime that’ll work for everyone near Santa Clara.

    Hi 808Chef!

    Nice to hear from you! Are you free on either August 5 during the day or August 6 or 7 anytime? I’d love to have a Cattle Call there if there are South Bay folks interested. If not, I can stop by your hotel on those days if any are good for you.

    I’m visiting Santa Clara University for business reasons (part of the trip is a business trip), so your hotel won’t be far from me on one of those days!

  74. Stretch July 23, 2008 8:29 am

    Doesn’t ST usually post a pic of the birthday person when it is announced on the blog?? I am sure Chawan would appreciate it.

    If you guys only knew that the WAC meetings would be around this time every year, you could have changed your wedding date so you can spend the anniversary together.

  103. Garret July 23, 2008 9:47 am

    BSU using their bowl to get into the MWC?

    Could the Mountain West Conference’s next step be adding Boise State?

    League commissioner Craig Thompson didn’t sound eager Tuesday to invite the Broncos, but he said an agreement appears in reach with the Boise-based Humanitarian Bowl.

    Thompson didn’t deny Boise State might use the bowl as a means to gain admission into the Mountain West.

    “It’s two different deals, but they probably will,” Thompson said.

  104. Garret July 23, 2008 9:48 am

    If the Chargers leave San Diego then SDSU will need a LOT of help to remain in the MWC. They lose so much money already with Athletics and they do not have the type of public support or fan base to get a stadium done on their own.

    The uncertainty over whether the NFL’s Chargers will remain in San Diego County has created tension about San Diego State’s football future.

    Even if the Chargers vacate Qualcomm Stadium in January, Thompson said the Aztecs probably would be allowed to stay there for an undetermined amount of time until a permanent solution is found.

    Thompson didn’t rule out the Mountain West helping the Aztecs pay rent to stay at Qualcomm.

    “We need San Diego State,” he said. “We need them to have a football team.”

  111. Gorg July 23, 2008 10:11 am

    Hello all!!

    Hope you are all having a great week and that the paper here stops laying folks off. Maybe we should all get subscriptions to the paper. Hell, god forbid they try to make some money on the website here. I can think of so many ways off the top of my head that they could do.

    Shoot, Hawaii at number 4 in the polls? I guess that’s a little respect seeing those other teams are returning a bunch of players. Makes it sweeter when Coach Mack and the boys kick their tails!!


  112. chawan_cut July 23, 2008 10:16 am

    chawan here,
    and i know you’ve all been waiting for me to say it,
    so yes, here’s another Happy Birthday wish to Ms. Leila Wai.
    (I’m sure she probably already has something scheming to get back at Stephen for announcing to the world her special day). i bet she’s glad she’s not sheriff’ng the blog today like she did yesterday.

    hope Mrs. Faye Wai has a big birthday cake waiting for you at home!

    ok, no more lame comments from me the rest of the day. (Jamie, I mean James, & Stretch, no more trying to encourage me. oh yeah, you too homey, heh).

    and the first thing I said was, “Can I attend the party at Murphy’s?”

    And ST replied, “Everyone’s invited.”

    Gorg! Howzit Brah! Did DPK ever find out where your band was playing? I know he wanted to check you guys out.

    I thought I heard on sports radio the other day that Tim Tebow’s girlfriend is an underwear model and has been in Playboy. Can anyone substantiate this, or was I not paying close enough attention?

  125. A-House July 23, 2008 10:44 am


    re your #413 post from last night.

    OK, understand that you will make full payment for repairs of the jugs machine and accept contributions to offset.

    Wasn’t it only a year ago that Princess Leila had a birthday and ST and Wena had an anniversary? My birthday is in the month that has 28 days.



    Congrats to the Solomon!

  127. jjr45Blue July 23, 2008 10:51 am

    Aloha all,

    I’m glad to meet other Bloggers and Hawaiian in the Big Easy! What am I going to do with all those beads now? Now I’m excited about Warrior football! My feeling is the Warriors will do better than 4th. Been to Florida field this summer and that place is awesome! They kept the place open for some reason, but there were some non-football people working out and etc. So, I walked around…It’s very compact, no visible parking lot (unlike Aloha Stadium) it’s next to many dorms. I wish I could go to the game against the gators, but got too much to do at home. Well, hi everyone.

  128. gigi-hawaii © July 23, 2008 10:53 am

    homey, good to know you were not born in Leap Year.

  129. homey ® July 23, 2008 10:59 am

    Here’s the text from ST’s first blog topic:

    Posted on: July 24, 2006 at 12:31:52 am
    Meet the couch potato

    Thanks for stopping by.
    This might not look like much now, but once this place is fixed up, we hope it serves as a meeting place to discuss all things that are University of Hawai’i sports.
    There will be updates, behind-the-scenes stories of UH figures and the people who cover them and guest contributors. If I can figure out the equipment — and that’s an “if,” considering my VCR still blinks “12:00 … 12:00 …: — we’ll post sound bites and videos.
    This will be your blog, too, so please send suggestions, questions and gripes. I’ll try to find the answers. I might be a couch potato, but I’ve got a press pass, a fat Rolodex and a thick skin (mostly around the mid-section).
    See you in a bit.

  130. d1shima [sez:] July 23, 2008 11:01 am

    Hi jjr45Blue,
    Interesting nic.
    Thanks for the report. Have heard from FloridaTed about the parking sit and the proximity to University facilities.
    As true Tsaikos, obviously we’d appreciate any info about da fuud!

    Wena’s wedding anniversary is tomorrow, which also is the real second anniversary for this blog.

    So the Warrior Beat is actually an anniversary gift???

  133. chawan_cut July 23, 2008 11:09 am

    please add me to the list of people going to Florida and Oregon State.
    not sure about Boise State yet.

  134. gigi-hawaii © July 23, 2008 11:10 am

    homey, you said you were born in a month that has 28 days, so it seems like it wasn’t a month that has 29 days. HOWEVER, a month that has 29 days also has 28 days, so, on 2nd thought, you might have been born in a leap year.

    haha make sense?

  135. Ronnie July 23, 2008 11:11 am

  151. d1shima [sez:] July 23, 2008 11:35 am

    Ha’a in the EZ!

    Asked how many times he’d seen the tape of the Georgia players dancing in the end zone, Tebow shot back, “I’ve seen it enough … enough.”

    Still, he doesn’t see what happened last season as insult.

    “I see it as a positive,” Tebow said. “That does nothing for us except get us more motivated, more excited and more juiced coming into this year. As far as Coach [Mark] Richt’s decision, he got his team fired up. They changed their demeanor, and it really did probably change the rest of their season. That gave them that drive, a sense of passion. Good call, and it definitely got them fired up.

  152. Ronnie July 23, 2008 11:38 am

    So, for anyone who is thinking of going to the Boise St game… Here are my top 3 reasons for going:

    3 – I want to be there when we are the first WAC team to beat Boise on the smurf turf.

    2 – I want the “big showdown” between Fresno and Boise to determine second place!

    1 – If we win the WAC and beat Florida and OSU to go undefeated (I BELIEVE), we are back to back WAC Champions in back to back BCS games. However, if we lose the WAC and beat Florida and OSU we are in the Hawai’i Bowl.

  171. chawan_cut July 23, 2008 12:14 pm

    i don’t mess around with other people’s property.

    you won’t have to worry about HER killing you…

    (oh, and you can only have at max 3 links per post. aren’t you the one that has the blogging 101 lessons on your page???)

  172. Jason July 23, 2008 12:20 pm

    Ah, three links per post! I did not know that. I shall add that to my tutorial. Many thanks, ICS major. I knew you guys were good for something.

  173. Ronnie July 23, 2008 12:22 pm

    Hi Rob!

    Just think… the celebration when we beat Boise will be ten times louder than the celebration when we beat Fresno (because we won’t have to worry about flying screwdrivers or water bottles 😈 )

    jason, rob25,

    did you mean infamous vice famous? there’s a difference.

    jason, yes, we can count up to 3. just can’t differentiate, integrate, extrapolate or whatever-ate it.

    koakane, some stories are best not shared. although you got me curious too now what was said.

  179. Jason July 23, 2008 12:40 pm

    ICS majors can count to three. Math majors use limits to approach it. In my case, with five links, I was approaching from the right side.

  180. A-House July 23, 2008 12:47 pm


    Thanks, I was very lucky when we pulled numbers to see who would reel in first “hit” and it was a “white” King Salmon (deemed somewhat rare). Lucky, because my brother went 6 consecutive years without hauling in a “white” King. Anchor Point Lodge staff say that it is better tasting than Hamachi.

    If you can make the Weber State tailgate, we are bringing misoyaki butter fish (black cod caught on my trip). We happen to set a new “lodge” record of 33 black cod on a single day.

  181. duffer July 23, 2008 12:57 pm


    Save some misoyaki butterfish, I’ll be there!

  182. MadiMacMele July 23, 2008 12:58 pm

    congrats to Sol, what an honor.

  183. gigi-hawaii © July 23, 2008 1:00 pm

    A-House, I’ll be there as well.

  184. chawan_cut July 23, 2008 1:04 pm

    jason, actually, we can only count to 2, 0 & 1, and sometimes by 8 or 16. i just got lucky with 3.

    a-houses, where’s all these fish pictures at?

    anyways, back to the subject at hand. i think 4th place is a decent spot to be in. that shows that they give our defense some props and are still somewhat concerned about our unknown offensive capabilities.

    hard to tell about boise. they lost their 5 year SR qb (even though he only played 1). they do return ian johnson, but they can’t just run him every down. they’re usually more balanced, but i’m sure they had some other qb that was waiting in the wings for his chance to start.

    fresno has brandstater who has been mr. inconsistent. they booed him off the field 2 years ago, but let him redeem himself last year. they were however the only WAC team to win their bowl game last year. our defense will be ready for this game though. i bet some of our guys would like to redeem themselves for the hit on colt last year.

    nevada could be the sleeper with kaepernick and lippincott. but its their turn to come here and play in the zero-altitude, humid weather in october. it won’t come down to a FG this time around. i also read how our fans were treated there in reno after the loss. don’t worry, we’ll be more courteous to the few wolfpack fans that can afford to come to aloha stadium.

    san jose won’t have their crappy turf to equalize the playing field this time. it’ll be an interesting match up with 2 defensive minded/background head coaches going at it. they too have to find a new qb/rb duo to run the offense.

    new mexico state. sure they return their gun slinger in holbrook, but he’s been throwing it around for 3 years and hasn’t accumulated much wins to show for it. although its always tough & not fun to get to las cruces (especially after playing at logan the week before)

    idaho/utah state…. why are they even in the wac again??? the cold in november in logan might have an impact on us. they also lost their all everything WR/KR #6 that had that kickoff return and catch for TDs last year.

    idaho will be after a bye week for us, so we’ll be well rested to welcome the team from moscow over to the islands.

    here’s a link to my uh schedule of opponent’s schedules if you haven’t seen them yet. that way you can see who they play before and after us.

  185. Jason July 23, 2008 1:09 pm


    I wanted to get opinions from all our military vets.

    Caleb Campbell will not get a chance to play for the Detroit Lions because of a change in military policy.

    Campbell was a seventh-round draft pick for the Lions in April. At the time, Army policy would have allowed the West Point graduate to serve as a recruiter if he made the team.

    But a subsequent Department of Defense policy has superseded the 2005 Army policy.

    In a letter to Lions president Matt Millen dated Wednesday, U.S. Army Lt. Col. Jonathan P. Liba wrote that Campbell has been ordered to give up professional football for “full-time traditional military duties.”

  186. djmitcho July 23, 2008 1:10 pm

    Here are my reasons for going to the Boise game.
    1.Its the closest one to me this season. (It’s close call between BSU and OSU. I would have gone to both, but I’ve got so much going on in Sept. that it was out of my ways and means)
    2.The people in Boise are such fanatics, when the Warriors win, the entire city will deflate and I want to see it happen.
    3.I get the chance to finally meet another Tsaiko in person. (I tried to find ST at the Idaho game last year, but couldn’t.)

  187. d1shima July 23, 2008 1:16 pm

    IMHO, that was a “rock and a hard place” thing for the Army. Originally, it seems that his orders would be good for recruiting however, as more and more units and soldiers are returning for combat duty I can see more pressure from the side that questions his “preferential” status.

  188. da princess' classmate July 23, 2008 1:19 pm

    regarding BSU – they’ll probably be weaker at the QB and OL position. at QB, i think they’re going from a 5th yr SR to a RS F, and on the Oline they lost a couple including AA Clady. not too concerned on their Defensive side of the ball as we’ve usually been able to put up pts against them.

    does any1 know if Cincy’s QB got that 6th year, i think it was that Mauk kid.

  189. Geezy July 23, 2008 1:27 pm

    congrats to Elimimian…all i have to say is….if we beat Florida we shut up any and everything about the Georgia game…if we go toe to toe with them and put up a fight, the WAC better watch out!…I have all the confidence in the worl d that we will repeat as WAC champs

  190. LizKauai [Believer] July 23, 2008 1:30 pm

    Hiya- peeking in for a sec.

    I found this:
    “Zorn has utilized fairly traditional drills with his QBs thus far, but says he will unveil a neat, quirky one Thursday to simulate the impact of getting sacked. He wouldn’t give too many details, but I look forward to seeing it unfold. The famous dodge-ball drill – to simulate darting around the pocket to avoid the rush – will make a return shortly as well, Zorn said ”


  191. Rob25 July 23, 2008 1:31 pm

    Chawan – You may be right about the “infamous” after the bowling session! I have to agree with you about Idaho annd Utah State…shhh my dad is a USU alum…why are they still on the WAC. They drag down the whole conference, in football.

    Ronnie – d1shima is right, they could stampede us with horses after they lose. We will be there first WAC team to beat the Broncos on that blue carpet. We should have won two years ago.

    A-House – my co-worker’s hubby just cam back from the other lodge over there, but he wasn’t lucky enough to catch a white salmon. They caught a lot of fish though. Nice to see your pic…she found it for me when I told her about your trip. Was that your first time to Alaska?

  192. d1shima July 23, 2008 1:31 pm


    From 7/22 blog rating. Bearcats’ anticipated QB is ranked 8th in the Big East

    Dustin Grutza, Cincinnati: The Bearcats hoped to have Wake Forest transfer Ben Mauk for one more year, but his chances of a sixth year of eligibility from the NCAA seem very slim at best (the NCAA has turned down multiple appeals). Grutza started 21 games before Mauk arrived on campus, and coach Brian Kelly hopes he’ll be more poised the second time. If Grutza can’t hold the job, Notre Dame transfer Demetrius Jones and redshirt freshman Chazz Anderson are ready to go.

    Homey – you mad at me?

  195. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 1:34 pm

    chawan_cut – I was there at that Nevada game last year and actually sat between alot of Nevada fans. Most were pretty cool with a few jabs here and there throughout the game talking smack, but all in good football atmosphere fun. The ones who were bad were the young punk college kids who were drunk acting a fool. I almost got into a fight walking to my car when one of those turds started cussing at me saying we’re overrated and the game was BS and blah blah blah. But Nevada isn’t bad I’d say the Fresno St. fans are the worst!

  196. HiFlyer July 23, 2008 1:35 pm

    Happy birthday princess Leila.

    Happy anniversary to Wena and ST.

    White salmon better than Hamachi??? I need a taste test of say around 1 pound of sashimi each.

  199. Jason July 23, 2008 1:39 pm

    There we go again, homey’s stating the obvious. Of course, not everyone can be a math major.

    But from me to homey to chawan_cut to Big Wave Dave, we all know — there is only one Garret.

  200. d1shima July 23, 2008 1:39 pm


    Ronnie – d1shima is right, they could stampede us with horses after they lose. We will be there first WAC team to beat the Broncos on that blue carpet. We should have won two years ago.

    Ronnie was mentioning the stuff they throw at Fresno so ackchally I was kinda worried about the oddah end of the horses.


  201. homey ® July 23, 2008 1:42 pm

    howzit PB!

    chawan – Thanks for your informative team-by-team breakdown. So what did you buy for PL?

  202. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 1:43 pm

    Congrats to Solly…

    If Sol, Adam, and Bruisah Blaze can stay healthy this season I feel sorry for all who unfortunately will be in there path…

  203. homey ® July 23, 2008 1:43 pm

    OH, did Rob25 say something?

    Mad at you for what? If anything, I’m glad you and your husband are going to the K-call!!!! yeh!

    Yes, my very first trip after waiting nearly a life time.

    I was very, very lucky because I caught every type of salmon except a “sockeye” to complete the “sweep”. 4 or 5 is not bad for a first timer.

  211. d1shima July 23, 2008 1:57 pm


    MeiLing – #88 – don’t forget Aaron Francisco, starting safety from Kahuku H.S.

    Oh sure, she trying fo’ run around and catch all da line guyz and now you like her run aftah one SAFETY! C’mon, da pooh ting on-y get one leg! 🙄

    chawan – I saw #171 and said to myself, “pfffttt”. Did you have flowers delivered?

  214. A-House July 23, 2008 2:02 pm

    Less than 38 Days … wow!

    BHF2 – Each time I read your post with the update, I feel the excitement building more and more each time. Mahalo for “just doing it” to get JUGS1 and JUGS2 back in service. I marvel at your courage, focus and determination to accomplish a task that you deem critical.

    W-Doc and Dr-Doc – Mahalo for the time and effort you put into the HI-5 recycling project and your matching donation.

    jm2375 – Mahalo for assisting Wl-Doc and Dr-Doc with the HI-5 recycling project.

    Princess Leila – Best wishes as you celebrate your birthday. No better way to do that than by eating your favorite food(s)…a porterhouse steak, perhaps? with a perfectly baked potato loaded with butter, sour cream, chives and real crispy bacon bits. I’d love to join you…maybe some day…

    ST & Wena – Ditto above for anniversaries. Separate celebrations are in order. Wena, I wouldn’t be surprised if Allie, Jodie and Devon out-vote you, and you all end up at an all-you-can-eat Pizza Hut grind fest. Enjoy!

    ST –

    Solomon – If you’re lurking out there, congratulations on your selection as WAC pre-season Defensive Player of the Year!! Son, you did well and I am confident that you will continue to do well. I’m very, very proud.

    Homey – Happy Birthday!…whenever it happens.

    A-House – Wow! Misoyaki butterfish is one of my absolute favorites! Thanks for sharing. Can’t wait for the Weber State Tsaikogate!! I hope Midori and I will be able to eat/taste some of the other fish you caught…sooner than September, pleeeeze. 😀

  215. Princess Leila July 23, 2008 2:03 pm

    Hi everyone! Thanks for the birthday wishes….

    And my mom says hi too!

  216. Mrs. A-House July 23, 2008 2:04 pm

    Sorry … previous post is from the “real” Mrs. A-House… 😉

  217. gigi-hawaii © July 23, 2008 2:06 pm

    haha, I was wondering why A-House’s typing was so good.

  218. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 2:07 pm

    Just read this about that Tebow guy wanting to play smarter and not trying to get hit so much. Does he know who his first game of the season is against? Guess not as it seems his focus is on Georgia. Oh well, I guess he’ll come to after some smelling salts once #17, #44, and #53 of the Warrior D, pound his arse in the turf…silly rabbit…


  219. Mrs. A-House July 23, 2008 2:11 pm

    Yikes! Sorry again… for the empty space next to “ST”…

    I wanted to say…

    ST – Taking the big U-turn at the top of our street can easily pull valuables out of your car’s trunk if it’s not secured properly. We’re relieved that a well-dressed neighbor, out for an evening stroll, found the media guide, assumed it was ours and walked it to our door. Bless him…we have pretty awesome neighbors! 😉

  220. chawan_cut July 23, 2008 2:12 pm

    homey, no, i didn’t. ask THE Princess herself. speaking of which, there she is!

    a birthday wish is the best i can do.

  221. homey ® July 23, 2008 2:13 pm

    I was looking at the first few blogs of the WB and noticed there was more spam than actual comments!

  222. homey ® July 23, 2008 2:15 pm

    Mrs A-House – Thank you for the birthday wish. 😆

  223. chawan_cut July 23, 2008 2:18 pm

    mr. a-house,

    nice catches! how come there’s no mrs a-house in the pictures? or is she holding the camera?

  224. Rob25 July 23, 2008 2:21 pm

    Sorry had to go help someone…now I’m back.

    Homey – I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to hear you give the performance of your life. hehehe

    d1 – ohhhh, wasn’t really thinking about that end, but you got a point there…and hence the reason that I would rather deal with screwdrivers and heated pennies!

  225. Mrs. A-House July 23, 2008 2:21 pm

    Pauoa Boy – Howzit son! Now don’t you be putting yourself in harm’s way for no good reason. Any smart a$$’s give you $h _ +, you take the high road and turn your “cheek(s)” to those dumb-dumb’s. (Can’t believe I’m posting these harsh words, but dormant bad vibes generating from the Nevada, UNLV, Fresno areas come alive and really “push my intensely dislike buttons.) Am I getting rev-ed up for the start of the football season…you bet!! 😡

  226. Jason July 23, 2008 2:27 pm

    I’m still alive, and I don’t see chawan_cut nor Princess Leila outside my door. I guess that’s good. 😀

  227. bighilofan2 July 23, 2008 2:27 pm

    Howzit Howzit Tsaikos everywhere.

    called Shirley at Roger Hills today. JUGS1 an JUDGS 2 with Kyle at UH field. she still never send me the bill for parts and labor. i’m holding my barett!

  228. homey ® July 23, 2008 2:28 pm

    chawan – Mrs A-House likes the amenities of home. She doesn’t like roughing it like Mr. A-House. They are like that couple on Green Acres.

  229. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 2:30 pm

    Mrs. A-House, no worries I geff um. A little BJ Penn akshon is good, no need get nawts just make em tapout shmall kine. 🙂 Nah, the only reason I actually gave in was cause I had my son with me and the guy kept saying F-this and F-You Rainbow F–gots, blah blah blah. So I politely told him STFU or I will do it for you! 🙂

  230. Rob25 July 23, 2008 2:31 pm

    Oh oh, watch out for Mrs. A-House…it’s just like you mentioning HF to A-House…don’t get them started.

    A-House – They call that beginner’s luck or in Sesame Street talk…doggie poopoo luck. Luck, skill, whatever it’s all good. Don’t like fish, but will try to make it to the tailgate if I can. So nice of you to share…did Mrs. tell you to?

    Yeah, where are the pics? Isn’t that the real reason why we are here ladies? No beef cake pics today. Guess I’ll have to join Homey in looking at the keyless key!

  231. Jason July 23, 2008 2:32 pm

    A-House – re #180 – yummy! I’ll be there, too.

    Hi Mrs. A-House (Aunty)! Thanks for your kind words and welcoming me back last week.

  233. Mrs. A-House July 23, 2008 2:36 pm

    Rob25 –

    Hi there! So far the only away game we plan to attend is the Florida game. Thanks to you, Ronnie, Chawan and all others who are making the effort to attend as many away games as possible. What’s for sure is that the hopefully huge group of Tsaikos making the trip to cheer the Warriors at the UNLV game 2009 will be an awesome happening. With Wreck, Homey, Pride, Bulla, D1shima, DPK and our other mucho macho pals strutting into the stadium in front of us, we no scared ’em, we goin’ GET ‘um!! Hope you can be there…should be another one of those really special “make memories” trips.

  234. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 2:37 pm

    I’m sure Rivers will find a home somewhere as well as RGM…too bad they got waived…

  235. Mrs. A-House July 23, 2008 2:38 pm

    Jason – chawan is constructing a lego voodoo doll in your likeness as we post. I’m almost certain you’ll be feeling the effects a couple of weeks from today.

  238. Mrs. A-House July 23, 2008 2:42 pm

    Signing off…thanks for another fun day. Take care now…

  239. Rob25 July 23, 2008 2:42 pm

    Oh, I’ll be there…I’m even going to book for hubby though not sure when he will be back from the sandbox.

    I wa thinking along Al’s line, staying at Red Rock…but Downtown is so much fun when there are a BUNCH of Hawaii people. It’s like we’re still at home.

    You sure you don’t want to rock the Fresno game with us…it should be fun and I’m pretty sure that those Fresno fans could get you going?

    PB – Are you going to be at the Fresno game?

  240. Princess Leila July 23, 2008 2:43 pm

  242. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 2:46 pm

    Okay so I just checked back in to work today and my boss said that I will be gearing up for a deployment to Iraq next summer for approx. 7 months. I will be doing some mini deployments sometime during the football season, in which case I said the F-word unintentionally while I was being told. My boss without knowing why I said that was like, let me guess…football season huh? I started laughing, and he said don’t worry when I found out I said the same chit…

  243. A-House July 23, 2008 2:46 pm


    Mrs A-House and Midori7 decided that home was a better place to be than a “rocking” boat on a wide-open sea with the wind howling and waves/swells 3′-4′ high.

    Besides, it was cold and I froze my buns!!! Alsaka summers are quite different than Hawaii.

  244. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 2:52 pm

    Aunty Rob25 – yes, I will be at the Fresno St. game…*fingers crossed* Have you and Ronnie bought tickets yet?

  245. Garret July 23, 2008 2:52 pm

    Amazing that Michelle Wie is the 5th-highest earning female athlete and the highest earning female golfer.

    $12 million

    A limited schedule this year (injuries, college enrollment) didn’t hurt Wie’s endorsement career. But if the teen sensation wants to extend her deals with Nike and Sony, she’ll need to spend more time on the course in 2009.

  246. Rob25 July 23, 2008 2:53 pm

    You got that right A-House.

    I went there on a cruise with my parents in my youth…don’t ask how long…homey. No it wasn’t the with Admiral Perry or some chit like that.

    Anyways, we brought our swimsuits and other summer wear. Well, at the time they filled the ship pool with water from the ocean…OK so there were chunks of ice in it still…huh. If you can see your breath…and it’s not green…then you know you’re not in Honolulu anymore.

    Was good fun though. I loved going on a cruise…and hope to do again someday.

  247. Hawaiianbod July 23, 2008 2:54 pm

    Mrs A-House No, I haven’t signed your book. In fact, i’m a Tsaiko “virgin” (haven’t attended any Tsaiko event).

  248. A-House July 23, 2008 2:55 pm


    Happy Bifday to you and many more to come.

    We, the Tsaikos, are so fortunate to have you among us and you have been most generous with your talent and gifts.

  249. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 2:56 pm

    Mr. A-House, after seeing the fish pics I would say that I could deal with the frozen assets. Looks like some winnahs you guys went catch…au’ryte!

    I’m very sorry to hear that you’ll be deployed to Iraq next summer and that you’ll also miss some of the football season. I’m sure that you will do your duty well and I hope that things are calm over there then.

  252. Rob25 July 23, 2008 2:58 pm

    PB – Ronnie is checking with her contact to see if he can get us some through the Alumni association. If not then as season ticketholders we should have access to the UH allotment. Not sure that there will be a ton of people making the trip across the Pacific with the prices lately. Wish I could catch a MAC flight but then I got my roundtrip for $312. Check with Ronnie and if not, then let me know and I will order for you should you need me to.

  253. Garret July 23, 2008 2:58 pm

    Happy Birthday LK!

    Your badges look awesome and thank you for that great contribution to the blog!

  254. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 2:59 pm

    Happy B-Day LK…

    Rob25 – I would never tease you about your cruise back in the day on a voyaging canoe. How the heck did they put a pool in the canoe?

  257. Loa July 23, 2008 3:00 pm

    PB – stay safe brah

  258. Garret July 23, 2008 3:01 pm

    Looks like the Packers have solid evidence that Minnesota was tampering with Favre…Favre was using his Packers cell phone for tons of phone calls with Minnesota’s head coach and offensive coordinator!

    As we await the NFL’s decision on the tampering charges filed by the Packers against the Vikings for “inappropriate dialogue” with Brett Favre, Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel had an interesting bit of information in a piece he wrote about the quarterback today.

    McGinn writes that a source said Favre had continued to use a Packers-issued cell phone and that when the team checked the phone records it found “repeated calls to coach Brad Childress and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell.”

    The Vikings, if found guilty, could face penalties that include loss of draft picks and/or fines.

  261. Rob25 July 23, 2008 3:02 pm

    Happy Birthday LK! And many, many thanks for my badge…it’s truly an honor.

    Garret – Yeah, my husband is pretty upset that he will miss the whole football season this year because of his deployment to Iraq. By the time that they get there…it will be the end of the season and he doesn’t know that they will have access to games while at Fort Hood for training.

    PB – Marines are hardcore and I know that you will do a great job and be back to join us at another Tsaiko event!

  262. Rob25 July 23, 2008 3:03 pm

    Homey – it’s called canoe craftsmanship!

  263. Hawaiianbod July 23, 2008 3:03 pm

    Happy Birthday to LK, too!

    Hope one day to be fortunate to proudly wear a Tsaiko name tag.

  264. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 3:04 pm

    Rob25 – Shutes I will check with her, just like make sure I stay somewhat in the same section as you guys if not the same row. Or at the very least on UH’s side of the field…

  265. Princess Leila July 23, 2008 3:04 pm

    Ooooh, Happy Birthday LK!

  266. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 3:09 pm

    Loa, Garret, Aunty Rob – Mahalos, no biggie though I figured that was going happen anyway. With the way things is going nowadays the deployment cycles have gotten worst. For me it’ll be 7 months there and then 10 months stateside continuously until something changes.

  267. homey ® July 23, 2008 3:09 pm

    Rob25 – Thanks to your hubby, too! God Bless!

  272. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 3:15 pm

    Hawaiianbod – Nah, it’s all good I not worried about the deployment, just worried about missing all the frikkin games…

  273. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 3:17 pm

    Princess Leila – Howzit, never really got to say wassup at the Bash but maybe in the future can wala’au. Did get to meet your mom though, tell her I said Hi

  274. gigi-hawaii © July 23, 2008 3:22 pm

    “no worry, beef curry” — got that from LTUHF when he posted it on my blog months ago! Thought it was cute, so I repeated it here.

    Hi, LTUHF! Where are you today?

  275. Kelli July 23, 2008 3:22 pm

    Pauoa Boy: Didn’t know you were in the military. I give you credit. One of my bestest (yes, I said BESTEST) friends served in Iraq for a year. That was a crazy time! It’s great to have him back now. 🙂 Anyway, make sure you take care of yourself. I would miss football so much! I was miserable going to school on the Mainland and not being able to go to the games. It’s great to be back and going to UH.

  276. gigi-hawaii © July 23, 2008 3:25 pm

    Daughter’s former boyfriend was in the 29th brigade in the Army Reserve. Was deployed to Iraq for a year, came back, and told me it wasn’t so bad. So he signed up for another tour!

    I guess Afghanistan is much worse right now, per the media.

  277. GRM July 23, 2008 3:30 pm

    Did you get your PPV renewal notice from Oceanic? If not call them at 643-3333. It is $380 to renew and includes away PPV games, plus Wahine volleyball and Men basketball games.

  278. FloridaTed July 23, 2008 3:30 pm

    A-House Family, LizK, you’ve got mail.

  279. Rob25 July 23, 2008 3:31 pm

    Tanks Hawaiianbod…I will let hubby know how much everybody appreciates his service! Thanks to everyone that has said so here…

    Gigi – I didn’t know that…OK have to give credit to LTUHF then. BTW my hubby is with the 29th Brigade now…I don’t know this time the mission is a lot more dangerous, but it’s his third tour…I just have to be positive and enjoy the time that I have with him.

  280. gigi-hawaii © July 23, 2008 3:32 pm

    GRM, yep, hubby signed up for PPV already via the cable channel Oceanic listed on their postcard. We have the confirmation number in case they screw up for some reason!

  281. gigi-hawaii © July 23, 2008 3:34 pm

    wow, his 3rd tour? That’s dedication!

  282. Kazz July 23, 2008 3:36 pm


    Who’s down to wear purple or “furfle” (as my grandparents would say) to make the Bulla clan feel at ease for the first T-Gate of 2008? 😉

  283. ラスベガス July 23, 2008 3:40 pm

    Good to see that you are feeling better.
    Take care of that “bod”.

  284. homey ® July 23, 2008 3:40 pm

    Kazz – I’ll be neutral, I’ll wear gray.

  285. gigi-hawaii © July 23, 2008 3:40 pm

    Kazz, game day decision. I have both a purple muu as well as a black one…

  286. homey ® July 23, 2008 3:43 pm

    gigi – doesn’t matter for you since you won’t be in the stadium.

  287. MeiLing July 23, 2008 3:48 pm


    Hawaiianbod: Mahalo to telling me about Francisco. I’ll have to make a sign. I’ll feel like I’m at the airport: Mr. Satele? Mr. LaBoy? Mr. Francisco? and I’m throwing Deuce Letui in there jus’ cuz he’s a another Poly, & I’m so happy to see him on the team. Heard he’s a really nice guy.

    d1shima: tanks for protecting my left flank. Just came back from my PT ~ Mr. Fukumoto, whose Dad is from HI. No running, but I figure my UH Warriors Football t-shirt will be familiar to the guys.

    I haven’t seen the new synthetic turf we have in our Skydome, so I’ll have to make it to some of the practices that are indoors. I think it’s FieldTurf.

  288. Kazz July 23, 2008 3:48 pm


  289. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 3:49 pm

    Kelli – yups Marines…no probs it’s all good. Where were you on the mainland? Since I’ve been on the mainland I’ve caught some away games, and used to have tapes sent to me on deployments so I could watch. But cannot replace being there live to witness the action… Glad to have you back on the island at UH and writing, look forward to one day meeting you in person 🙂

  290. gigi-hawaii © July 23, 2008 3:49 pm

    yeah, I can just visualize UH fans heckling those wearing purple in their midst.

    I hope not!

    homey, actually, what’s scary is I know where Jason lives. i dropped him off after a baseball game. but he doesn’t have to worry about me lurking outside his place, there’s enough riff raff that live near him to scare him.

    Mr. A-House,
    yes, i can see why midori7 stayed home. she always says shes cold just at Murakami stadium.

  294. ホ ミ ® July 23, 2008 3:52 pm

  297. Kelli July 23, 2008 3:53 pm

    Pauoa Boy: Wow. Ok, my chingul (friend in Korean because he’s Korean) was in the National Guard. I used to go to Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon. I think it’s northwest of Portland. Another writer and I are planning to go to the karaoke thing on August 16.

  298. Jason July 23, 2008 3:54 pm

    yeah, I can just visualize UH fans heckling those wearing purple in their midst.

    The only color that truly attracts bad attention is RED (in the Fresno shade of course).

    Besides I’ve noticed that the fans that are in “patches” throughout the stadium get left alone, generally. It’s the BIG sections of the away fans that get noticed.

    Besides, I don’t care what any smear campaign from other fans ***cough***FRESNO***cough*** attempt, Hawaii has the best fans in the conference.

    Again, generally speaking.

    Jason. I was so glad to move out of Salt Lake after I saw a guy stick his arm out of the car window and fire his gun several times. (up toward the sky) That was before 1991.

  304. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 4:02 pm

    No worries tho, we know you will take the WARRIOR spirit with you and by the time you come back it will be just in time to enjoy a UH January Bowl game!!!

    There are a few suspects among us

    btw homodachi is used by straight guys when teasing other straight guys who seem “just a little too freindly” with each other but are not really gay.

    Well, there’s the “improved gas mileage” argument. Depending on how gas prices go and how much you drive (Jason could help do the math), those items should pay for themselves in about….

    stretch, hawaiianbod,

    yeah, i heard. i emailed them on monday because chris kept saying that he’s never seen pictures of colt throwing, only standing around. the UH blogspot is run by my friend, Tombo Ahi, and he had a montage of colt pics, so i emailed the site to him. i didn’t listen the past 2 days, but i just so happened to be listening today, and cool! can’t believe Chris couldn’t pronounce chawan_cut. and i guess we now know that Gary is a lurker.
    Tombo said he got 80 hits within that 5 minutes. did you know that tombo is not even in hawaii??? he gets a lot of scoops, just like Garret. thanks tombo!

    my friend is out there in Iraq right now. his 2nd time. he gets back sometime in October i think. we’ll party hearty at uh game when he gets back.

    i know its next year, but best wishes when you do go. hopefully you’ll have intermittent internet access to catch up with here or the scores.

  331. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 4:56 pm

    chawan_cut – I should be able too, but I dunno how good is the dirka dirka connection over there…

    since you get ’em anyway, can borrow? 😉


  333. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 5:03 pm

    I tried going through that whole media guide last night and uh…still never finish, lots of good info though, nice to see ol stats and ol faces…

  334. Garret July 23, 2008 5:06 pm


    Please thank your husband for me for his service to our country. He deserves extra thanks for having to spend the football season in Fort Hood and Iraq. I’m guessing that they won’t get all the games while at Fort Hood, but I’m sure he’ll have Internet access…so a Slingbox is an option.

    You can hook up the Slingbox to your TV source (DVR/TiVo/cable box/etc.) and he can watch anything on your TV on his computer. The quality is better than the Hawaiian Telecom streaming video (I know that isn’t saying much). The best part is that there are no monthly fees or anything after you buy the Slingbox (for something like $100 to $150). And your husband can watch the local news, Mack’s show, and whatever else he wishes to see when he has time.

    This good be an option for Pauoa Boy also–I’m sure someone could help him out if he has to miss a game.

  335. chawan_cut July 23, 2008 5:06 pm

    i hope you printed it out double sided. at least it would be 100 pages instead of 2.

  336. chawan_cut July 23, 2008 5:08 pm

    Garret, Rob25,
    that is what i’m going to do when i’m stuck in washington for 2 months. although what sucks is i think only one person can watch the slingbox feed, otherwise i’d share.

  337. Kazz July 23, 2008 5:09 pm


    😆 brah I nevah made it past page 40-something!!! One day! 😆 One day I will finish printing this media guide!!!

    Of course I could do it at work… BUUUUTTTTT… I’d like to continue my employment status on a regular basis. 😉


    Double sided? …. Now I will!

  338. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 5:10 pm

    Bangor! That is close — an easy 1.5 hour drive from here. You are welcome to come down for the weekends if you would like.

    You may contact me at wafanatcomcastdotnet. No shame! Especially when the Warriors are on TV (which, I hope, will be a whole lot after the win in Florida!).

    LIZ: Your birthday?Well, happy returns and best wishes!

  357. Rob25 July 23, 2008 5:59 pm

    Garret – Thanks for your kind words.

    Yeah, my sister has the slingbox attached to my parent’s cable box. She uses it to watch volleyball, football, etc and some other Hawaii shows. The only problem is if someone at the house that it’s attached to is watching something else…then next thing you know they are changing the channel on you remotely. I don’t know if I could handle that when I am watching “Deadliest Catch!”

    PB – my brother was able to set up on his laptop and do the same thing. I guess that I will have to find out all the information so that my hubby can watch when he isn’t dodging enemy fire. Supposedly, the internet connections there are pretty good, but I would guess that would depend on what base you are stationed at.

    BG – I might have to give you hubby’s address so that he can watch them also. Gotta send his notebook in to get fixed before he gets deployed. I used to burn a lot of DVDs for him so that he would have TV series and movies to watch while there. He’ll be moving around a lot in the country this though.

  358. Hawaiianbod July 23, 2008 6:05 pm

    Wafan – sorry, I can’t help I graduated from Aiea HS.

    Looking forward yo meeting you at the KK.

  359. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 6:08 pm

    BG – Thanks, will do…

    Hawaiianbod – Between my bruddahs and me, we cover from 91 – 07 at RHS so if they attended during that time frame than fo shua we know dem

    wafan – as us Rough Ridahs say…ah shaddup…nah nah onleh playing 🙂

    Aunty Rob25 – I think we going have internet access but with 100’s of Marines trying to email and all that I dunno if going get chance…gotta take care the younger troops first…

  360. Wena July 23, 2008 6:12 pm

    Happy Birthday Leila

  361. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 6:12 pm

    see plus he na ali’i, no wonder…

  362. Rob25 July 23, 2008 6:16 pm

    PB – yeah I know how that is…hubby has to let everyone go home on RR before him also. Depending on where you are located, you could have wireless internet…just gotta take your laptop with you. That’s what hubby is going to do as is my Marine son should he get deployed. He’s loving MP school and even liked doing the OC thing…something about getting pepper sprayed.

    Brew808 – Sorry, only checked back to yesterday’s blog just now. I arrive in LA on Friday morning and don’t leave until Tuesday evening. We should get together if possible…are you going to the Fresno game…because you know that we will be there on Saturday…no fail! WARRIORS gotta represent!

  363. sjmacro July 23, 2008 6:18 pm

    bhf2: couldn’t make it to practice today. You coming tomorrow? Call me if available midday. sjmacro

  364. hoohiki July 23, 2008 6:18 pm

    Just got back from watching the UW and want to say thank you so much to Tyler Graunke, Ryan Mouton, Blaze Soares, and Bryce K. for taking a minute of their time to say hi and take pictures with the kids who came to watch their idols practice. A family from Chicago was there and apparently their young son wanted to see the lower campus before their flight back home tomorrow and came upon their practice. Bryce was kind enough to chat with him and you could see the adoration on his face. So thank you to the Warriors!!! (Got lots of great action pictures of the players with my Canon Rebel.)

  365. Rob25 July 23, 2008 6:19 pm

    OK gotta head home and then to airport to pickup parents. Will check in later…I hope…gotta look for some good prices to Vegas for the New Year’s. Gotta try Red Rock so that I can think about it for the UNLV game next year.

    C ya!

  366. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 6:20 pm

    Oye…the pepper spray drill haha. They basically get pepper sprayed in the eyes and cannot touch there face or rinse out there eyes. Basically gotta withstand the pain and take it like a man or guess what…it’s Round 2 hana hou…

  367. Rob25 July 23, 2008 6:20 pm

    Thanks for sharing that hoohiki…good to know that the boys are representing well.

  368. Rob25 July 23, 2008 6:21 pm

    PB – yeah he said that it didn’t really affect him that much and then he got a 98% on the written exam that they had. USMC, they just gotta make you guys hard!

  369. chawan_cut July 23, 2008 6:25 pm

    yeah, i’ve caught the ferry to seattle many a time to sightsee, go to a mariners/seahawk game, etc.
    i’ll email you.

  370. myki July 23, 2008 6:27 pm

    Wena, Happy Anniversary to you both! Would like to check with you about school supplies. Let me know if you can use crayons, glue, construction paper etc.

  373. hoohiki July 23, 2008 6:41 pm

    Forgot to mention the kid from Chicago is a HUGE Warriors fan and you could see the adoration on his face not Bryce’s. Hehehe. Also forgot Tim Grasso. Thank you, Tim, for being such a good sport.

    It was great to see the guys out there running their routes. Most of the QBs were there Graunke, Funaki, Alexander, Rausch, Austin, Bryce K.
    Saw some great catches by Malcolm Lane, Greg Salas, and Bain. Didn’t see much action from the slots, i.e. Pilares. Didn’t see much running plays, although LWJ was there. The QBs were mostly practicing from the shotgun. Saw Austin practicing from under center.

    Thought I would see more spectators, but only a handful. KGMB was there interviewing Tyler.

  374. Hawaiianbod July 23, 2008 6:51 pm

    PB – any chance you’ll come home before being deployed? Gotta shake your hand and paina with you.

  375. bighilofan2 July 23, 2008 6:51 pm

  379. Pauoa Boy July 23, 2008 7:00 pm

    Hawaiianbod – Yups, I’ll be back before I go. Usually take a little time off before I leave. Plus you usually have a couple days to take care of personal stuff before heading out. I’ll be heading back here and there though. Actually trying to come back during the Thanksgiving weekend to hopefully catch the Idaho and Washington State games.

  380. SteveM July 23, 2008 7:05 pm

    Pauoa Boy: Wow. Ok, my chingul (friend in Korean because he’s Korean) was in the National Guard. I used to go to Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon. I think it’s northwest of Portland. Another writer and I are planning to go to the karaoke thing on August 16.

    Got your RSVP Kelli. As for the other writer, well… bring some more… 😯

    Just noticed that August 16 is the full moon– but the stars are going to shine bright that night!

    g-nalo — got you listed!
    …and Kelli can legally go for a Tsai-ko shot glass on the 16th 🙂

  381. MeiLing July 23, 2008 7:35 pm

    Aloha, Pauoa Boy,

    I live in Flagstaff, AZ where it’s nice an cool at 7,000 ft. elevation. The AZ Cardinals have camp up here to cool off & it’ll provide an advantage, at least in their first few games, from training at altitude. The Japanese swim team was the last group to leave about a couple of weeks ago to go home & then onto Beijing. We had a lot of Olympians training here a couple of months ago.

    Are you being deployed? Ke Akua keep you safe.

  382. Stretch July 23, 2008 7:38 pm

    …and Kelli can legally go for a Tsai-ko shot glass on the 16th

    she can earn her shot glass as long as she doesn’t tell her parents who made her drink a shot of CR.

  383. MeiLing July 23, 2008 7:39 pm

    Is is LizK’s berfday???

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! All us monkeys in the zoo wish the very best to you…HAPPY BERFDAY TO YOU!

  384. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc July 23, 2008 7:39 pm

    Finally back for a few minutes and then it’s off to work out.

    I assume that LK means LizKauai except that there’s no mention of her birthday in Stephen’s blog above – only Princess Leila’s. If it really is your b’day, then have a happy one – and you, too, Princess. Happy Anniversay Stephen & Wena – how many years?

    JASON: The little boxes – I assume that if I were to install the program I would be able to see the foreign characters which do not use letters. However, would I be able to understand what the characters said? Probably not. How do I get the translation?

    Mahalo to JM2375 for helping us get the recycling bins to the Athletic Department. There are many different vendors and styles available for the Department to choose from, but all I really care about is that they take the time to recycle since that’s giving money away to the City when it’s tossed into the garbage instead of keeping it for the department’s use. For more information about what our recycling business does, please click on my name.

    Interesting event happened earlier today with respect to the Public Hearing at the City Council for Jim Donovan’s appointment to the Salary Commission. Unfortunately, no one mentioned it to him or his staff except for yours truly. Even as late as this morning, the staff was assuring me that it was a mistake and that the Mayor’s office was in the dark as well; however, around 1 pm, the City Clerk’s office got the word out to the Lower Campus area that yes, indeed, he was on the agenda. Unfortunately, it seems that Mr. D. is traveling so that he couldn’t have made it to the hearing in any case.

    Everything went well despite his non-appearance, and the appointment has been referred back to the Executive Matters Committee for further consideration.

    JACK FLASH: Yep, that’s DrDoc – we live slightly to one side of the intersection of Kahili Street & Place. We’re probably no more than 500 feet apart from each other.

    BHF2 – will fax you the fax number first thing tomorrow with instructions. I use the fax at DrDoc’s office and his boss used to get pixxy if DrDoc’s name wasn’t on incoming faxes because the clerical staff wouldn’t know who was supposed to get it. His boss now understands that weird faxes should go to DD first, but it will make everyone’s life much easier if it has his real name on it.

    Mahalo for the explanation about the JUGS. As with Doris Sullivan, just as soon as the BushCo check arrives, we’ll send you something. We got a letter two weeks ago from them saying that it should arrive on or after July 11 but, if it didn’t come by mid-August, to let them know.

    When will you be in Honolulu again during regular business hours and can take some time to meet with some downtown people? Your sense of humor as well as your physical appearance & intelligence could make a difference when something needs to happen.

    We’re coming up to a crossroads in our household. DrDoc is undergoing a series of tests to determine what should be done – or if anything can be done – in trying to resolve a worsening medical condition. Until the results are in, we can’t choose which road to take. In the meantime, we’ll keep on keeping on.

  389. d1shima July 23, 2008 8:04 pm

    Some comments from Karl Benson’s State of the WAC Address:

    It’s Wack!
    nahnahnah j/k

    Benson was asked why media days were in Salt Lake City considering the conference doesn’t have a school in the city, and he said that he wanted to make a statement that Salt Lake City is a WAC market (insert MWC groan here).

    “The WAC has re-established itself as the second-most recognized conference in the West behind the Pac-10,” Benson said. “It wasn’t intended to compare the WAC to the Mountain West. The WAC is well-grounded, well-established and continues to perform at a high level.”

  390. d1shima July 23, 2008 8:06 pm

    More Benson notes

    Thirty of the conference’s 37 non-conference games are against Football Bowl Subdivision (IA) opponents. Seven of those games are against the Mountain West and seven are against the Pac-10. Benson said it was an opportunity for the WAC to make a statement and build momentum toward the postseason

    Benson took a little jab at the teams in the lower half of the WAC and said he’s encouraged the coaches and athletics directors of those programs to spend more money, recruit better and basically stop dragging the conference down.

    “We need to get better at the bottom of the league,” Benson said. “There are 120 FBS programs and we’ve had teams in the hundreds, and those teams need to get better. It has an impact on the teams in the top half in terms of BCS standings.”

  391. d1shima July 23, 2008 8:08 pm

    No TV contract yet for the WAC???

    Benson wanted to refute a report that the WAC had reached an agreement with ESPN for its television contract, which had been reported by several outlets that cover WAC teams.

  392. d1shima July 23, 2008 8:09 pm

    …and finally, because he has heard about Stretch

    Benson talked about the inefficiency of the WAC’s instant replay system. He said that the WAC didn’t invest as much into its replay system as the Big 10 or the SEC and is seeing the results. But he has encouraged more scrutiny on replay officials to make sure the calls are correct.

    translated: WTF?

  393. Stretch July 23, 2008 8:13 pm

    I don’t give the referees a hard time since they are so far away that they can’t hear me. I only “interact” with the visiting coaches.

  394. gigi-hawaii © July 23, 2008 8:14 pm

    LizKauai received a birthday gift card to Macy’s from her eldest son so it could very well be her birthday. Don’t know if it is today, though.

  397. d1shima July 23, 2008 8:25 pm

    Pat Hill and Fresno St. got a taste of what Hawaii did from Michigan last year, only worse…they already had their plane tickets for the trip to Manhattan. It may play in Hawaii’s favor though this year.

    The reason we’re at Rutgers is because Kansas State said they weren’t going to play us and we had to change our whole schedule,” Hill said. “Really, I liked our schedule before with Kansas State because we had a bye week before the Hawaii game, and now we don’t. So the Rutgers game got popped in there in place of Kansas State, who just said they’re not going to play and scheduled Montana State.

    This isn’t the first time a Big 12 team has cut its contract with Fresno State short. Hill said in past years both Texas Tech and Oklahoma State paid their way out of returning to Fresno.

    “I don’t know how people can just cancel contracts like that. Thank God we were able to pick up the Rutgers game… When you have a contract in today’s age I think you should live up to it.”

    Hmmm…I wonder what the line is on KSU-Montana St.? (For Amusement Only)

  398. d1shima July 23, 2008 8:27 pm

    Sorry, I had the wrong website listed for Pat Hill’s comments.

  409. BG July 23, 2008 8:52 pm


    Hope you see this when you get back later. P-L-E-A-S-E allow me to send your hubby the game dvd’s. Making another set is just too easy! Actually I sent 4-5 sets of each game (football, volleyball, baseball) to the 29th the last time they deployed, but I have a suspicion that they may have not filtered down to the lowest echelon! lol

    I’d bet money that your hubby knows me and I’d know him if I saw him. They spent a lot of time with my unit and I shook every soldier’s hand on every flight as they boarded. I was also there to meet every flight that came back. Small, small world…

    WassupDoc: If you were to install the language packs, you’d see the Japanese and Korean characters. As for understanding them, you could either use an online translator (which usually don’t work too well), figure out what they say by reading the other posts (some people Romanize the text), or Google a resource that can help.

    Baylor has 4 QBs competing for the open starting spot, quite similar to UH right now. Baylor’s solution if one QB isn’t far above the others is probably different than what UH will do…Baylor is talking about having two QBs on the field!

    New Baylor coach Art Briles added a twist to his four-man quarterback race Wednesday at Big 12 media days. Briles said two potential starting quarterbacks could be on the field at the same time this fall.

    Amazing that 86% of the Chinese surveyed said that they were content with their country’s direction, up from 48% in 2002. The next highest country was Australia, with 61% of Australians content with their country’s direction. 82% of the people in China were satisfied with their national economy, up from 52% in 2002. In the US, only 23% are content with our country’s direction and only 20% are satisfied with our economy.

    Very interesting that this Orlando-Sentinel writer is soliciting ideas from readers about what they’d like to see on his blog.

    So…We’ll be playing with efficient ways to give you Gators news, but I want to hear from you. What are some of the things you’re most curious about? What is the Sentinel not doing with Gators coverage that you’d like to see? I can promise that we will take every suggestion into account and work to get you the good stuff that you want.

    Feature article on Dennis McKnight. I didn’t realize that McKnight was born in Dallas.

    “There are three important qualities I look at in linemen: Ability, effort and attitude, and not in that order. Attitude is the most important of all of them, followed by effort. I’ll take guys with great attitude and effort over guys with great ability any day.”

    That McKnight is in coaching at all is a little surprising. After retiring from the NFL, he and a former teammate went into business together as car wash co-owners. He started coaching at San Diego’s St. Augustin High School, and got to know June Jones when Jones was coaching the Chargers. As he got to know Jones, he knew he’d like to work for him, and when the opportunity arose to join him in Hawaii, McKnight jumped at it.

    sorry just practicing. did not mean to send that.

  431. d1島: July 23, 2008 9:31 pm

    Some of the comments he’s gotten sound familiar. We’re so spoiled.

    I would concentrate on the “unknowns” if I were you. That means mostly the defensive side of the ball and the running back situation. Also, I’m curious about the new kicker

    I want to hear more recruiting news. I know Friday Night Lights just happened and no news yet. Did anyone commit, who now has FL at the top of their list, etc.?

    it would be great to hear whatever tid bits dont make it to the article from that day. also injury notes and changes to the starting positions would be nice.

    Some type of daily practice coverage would be awesome…

    Whether it’s a live blog or simply a recap each evening…

    More video is ALWAYS a good thing and a little insight into some of the players would be nice too…

  432. d1島: July 23, 2008 9:36 pm

    Thank you Stephen.
    For all the advantages that UF seems to have over UH, it appears that the Tsaikos have had “big-time” coverage over and above what Gator Fans have received (certainly in Orlando anyway).

  433. d1島: July 23, 2008 9:37 pm

    Planning something for a little girl?

  434. BG July 23, 2008 9:43 pm

    Thought to ponder…this blog is doing 400+ posts/day during the “doldrums”. What will it be like when the season starts (or even fall practice!). Will the server go into catatonic fits again? What kind of guesses do our resident experts have? Hmmmm

    Need to send that check to bhf2. See you all in the morning…

  435. d1島: July 23, 2008 9:44 pm

    And then there’s the comparison between HawaiiAthletics.com and GatorZone.com 😯

    Good to see more ‘tizer staffers are going to the K-call.

    Yeah, homey, It was a pleasant surprise for me too. Anyone else spotted who the “other writer” accompanying Kelli M is…?

    The Tsai-kettes are building an advantage if there was a karaoke competition that night…

  437. d1島: July 23, 2008 9:58 pm


    The Tsai-kettes are building an advantage if there was a karaoke competition that night…

    Why? Are they singing “Black and Gold”?

    I gotta check around my house for something…

    The other `Tizer writer is Caryn Kunz who has two blogs: “Lost” in Hawai`i and Cruisin’ Ko`olauloa.

  441. SteveM July 23, 2008 10:05 pm

    d1島 — no, but you want Al and I to sing “Black and Gold”? 👿

    We are shielding Kelli but she can join us if she wants so Al and I don’t argue over the lyrics…

  442. d1島: July 23, 2008 10:18 pm


    No mo’.

  443. d1島: July 23, 2008 10:20 pm


    Do you have a tutorial on switching the direction of a “B”?

  444. d1島: July 23, 2008 10:21 pm


    Thanks for the heads-up on Caryn.
    Now we gotta bus’ out da RR4L signs. 🙂

  445. d1島: July 23, 2008 10:22 pm


    One of you thinks it’s, “Gold and Black”?

  446. d1島: July 23, 2008 10:24 pm

    Would a double sink filled with water on both sides ever be considered a pool?

  447. Stephen Tsai July 23, 2008 10:24 pm


  448. SteveM July 23, 2008 10:25 pm

    Also, looking at the RSVP list, UHfan808 sings “Black and Gold” too.

    Snack time?

    Howzit, Stephen.

    d1shima: IDK of such a character.

  453. Kelli July 23, 2008 10:42 pm

    Hawaiianbod and Pauoa Boy: We’ll see about this shot glass deal…

    SteveM: Thanks for spreading the word about me being legal. Now look what you started! Haha! I’ll try to get more people to come. This is weird and almost a crime: Majority of my friends don’t really follow UH football. The ones who do hopped on the bandwagon a little late last season. Why are we singing “Black and Gold”? I’m sure my parents would join in on that one. Four years of sitting in the rain at football games and putting my head down in muggy buses afterwards and I can’t even remember the notes (not that I would even consider bringing my instrument and playing along).

    Stretch: Well, I invited my parents, but I don’t think they’re coming.

  454. L10pc July 23, 2008 10:45 pm

    Oh no…now I really got to practice…hopefully I’ll sound better than Pierce “the warbling walrus” Bronson. 😆

  455. L10pc July 23, 2008 10:47 pm

    oops.. Bronson = Brosnan

  456. Kelli July 23, 2008 10:54 pm

    I’m getting confused. Who know Korean (韓国語) and who knows Japanese (日本語)? I know Japanese and I pretend to know Korean (my source: K-dramas and K-pop).

    d1島: Love the tsai子 — that’s funny. This is weird… I’m starting to miss Japanese class — weekly kanji quizzes, oral presentations in front of the class, grumbling over sensei mumbling and making me write apple (りんご) instead of doll (人形). To this very day, I still think I should get the half a point or whatever it was on that chapter test!

  457. Jason July 23, 2008 10:56 pm

    I know a little of both. Can read/write/understand some Japanese. Can read/write Korean.

    Ah, I forget everything from Japanese. I burned out after four years of Japanese in high school and two at UH. That’s what I get for testing into JPN 100. 😀

    hi folks, that 99 yr old on a dark street is moi? Just checked and the street light opposite my house still goes on and off. Will call the mayor’s complaints number tomorrow.

    So sleepy these days. Do I have cancer? Usually, if a person is this tired, something’s wrong.

    g’nite, folks.

  459. Bulla July 23, 2008 11:22 pm

    Aloha ST,

    did you get a chance to go eat at Ruby River or Texas Roadhouse? both are very good, but I give the nod to Ruby River….16 oz ribeye just like Ruth’s Chris for $18.99, complete meal….WOW

    I left Utah in good shape, hope you do the same, haha

  460. ラスベガス July 23, 2008 11:31 pm

    Tsai-Ko would be written サイ コ (sa-i-ko)

  461. SteveM July 23, 2008 11:39 pm

    ラスベガス, Kelli, d1島, Jason — now you have me curious… since “Tsai” is or Chinese origin, I believe, then what is the Chinese (kanji) character.

    Then, combine it with the Japanese kanji for child (ko)…?

    Does that work?

  462. HiFlyer July 24, 2008 1:15 am

    chawan_cut – thanks for posting the sports report since I can’t see the news at night your postings keep me up to date along with everyone else here.

    LK – Happy belated birthday and thank you for the Tsai-ko name tag.

    For SteveM

  465. ラスベガス July 24, 2008 2:29 am

    The kanji I found in Chinese is 蔡 (tsai) not common in names but is very close to the Japanese “Matsuri” or festival.

    The 子 (ko) is very generic and usually signifies a female child when used as a part of a name i.e. 蔡子
    However I recommend keeping the kanji as is, otherwise with other kanji it would become “Tsai No Ko”

    I always remembered ko as attached to a female’s name, such as Sachiko..so does it mean we’re all blessed as a female child of Tsai….

  470. Ralph July 24, 2008 3:53 am

    okay where’s the new post for the day so I can go to bed after reading it…it’s almost 8 am in SLC or is it 9 am?
