Holding the line

There will be no change at the top of the offensive line’s depth chart when the Warriors resume spring practice Monday, according to line coach Gordy Shaw.

Entering spring break, the No. 1 line was: left tackle Clayton Laurel, left guard Brett Leonard, center Matagisila Lefiti, right guard Chauncy Winchester-Makainai and right tackle Levi Legay.

Shaw had said he would evaluate the first five spring practices — a sixth was rescheduled to April 18 because of the tsunami threat — and decide whether changes would be made. This morning, Shaw said, “At this time, no changes will be made.”

For sure, Winchester-Makainai, who has played four of the line positions, will remain as a guard. He said he lost more than 30 pounds since the Hawaii Bowl thanks to improved weight training and a no-white-rice diet. He said he used to fill his “plate with a bed of rice and a mountain of food. Not anymore.”

Who’s the NCAA leader in men’s volleyball attendance? It apparently is a matter of perspective.

BYU appeared to be the leader, with an average of more than 2,900 for its first six home matches. Because BYU’s crowds consisted mostly of students, who entered on student-fee passes, it was assumed the attendance figures were turnstile counts. And that would be ahead of UH, which reported an average turnstile count of 2,172 for its first 12 matches in the Stan Sheriff Center. (The match at Maui’s smaller Memorial Gym does not count as a home match.)

But wait. BYU reported an attendance of more than 1,400 for last night’s match, even though the television announcers insisted there were fewer than 1,000 in Smith Fieldhouse. BYU most likely has been listing tickets issued. UH reports that it issued an average of 3,279 tickets for its 12 matches in the SSC.

Which figure is more significant — tickets issued or turnstile count? Well, tickets issued includes tickets included in sponsorship deals. Certainly the amount of the sponsorship exceeds the face value of a ticket. On the other hand, at some places, turnstile count includes everyone in the building — reporters, concession workers, statisticians, players, etc. At UH, only people with tickets who go through the SSC turnstiles — not the pass gates — are counted as part of turnstile attendance.

The answer to the original question: I don’t have a clue.

    I think a couple of thousand were in my graduating class. We had to sit through a long speech, and then, instead of individual announcements, they said: Will the College of Arts & Sciences please stand. And we did. Then we sat down. Hmmm. I’d better recheck the print on my diploma …

    yes, the reunion was in 2009. There were quite a few class years invited, dating back to the 1940s and every decade after that. Mine was 1968.

    After a tour of the campus, we all had a wonderful dinner under a white tent on the lawn fronting Hawaii Hall.

    BTW, the day started with breakfast on the lanai of Kennedy Theater.

  25. Michigan Warrior March 25, 2011 8:56 am


    We all know UH is tops in attendance.

  26. Warrior Expat March 25, 2011 8:57 am


    Tickets issued may reflect the financials, but that’s just a small piece of the program’s revenue pie. Far more significant is turnstile count, reflecting actual fan support and, in turn, the future of the program. Give me 50,000 cheering fans over 50,000 sold, empty seats any day.

  27. Warrior Expat March 25, 2011 8:58 am

    Whoops, just realized you weren’t talking about football. My 50,000 number is a bit out of place then.

  28. Michigan Warrior March 25, 2011 9:00 am

    Maybe a “svelt” 300 will be able to handle the quicker d-linemen in today’s game. He also notes improved weight training as part of an overall healthier outlook. If his weight loss was that bad, Coach Shaw probably would’ve intervened by now, I’d think. I like Coach Shaw.

  29. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2011 9:02 am


    True that. But I think it matters because some of the coaches have attendance clauses. Also, I always felt they under-counted at the SSC but over-counted at Aloha Stadium. Unless the SSC, as I’ve said before, doesn’t really seat 10,000.

    Another unfortunate thing is that in volleyball, more people sit behind the team benches than across from them. Because the up referee is across from the team bench — and Papa Leahey can’t see when he’s on the same side as the up referee — the bench is flip-flopped from basketball. For basketball telecasts, the cameras point to the bench. For volleyball telecasts, the cameras point to the print media. The crowds might not be large for men’s volleyball, but they’re greater than they appear on TV.

  30. gigi-hawaii March 25, 2011 9:02 am

    My doc wants me to lose 50 lbs. He recommends a high protein diet such as the South Beach Diet. Lay off the carbs, he said!

    Is that what these athletes do? High protein, low carb?

  31. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2011 9:03 am


    I think your analogy works in both instances.

  32. Bigislandkurt March 25, 2011 9:04 am

    Good to hear that Chauncy is at 300 good weight! Right on ST.


  33. Bigislandkurt March 25, 2011 9:05 am

    Chauncy reminds me of a young Steve Hutchinson from the MN Vikings. He will do some damage at guard!


  34. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2011 9:07 am

    I think it’s OK to watch a basketball game on TV. The NFL is great on TV, too.

    But you definitely need to watch a UH men’s volleyball match in person. The pace is so quick, that you either have a wide-angle shot (which makes it difficult to see the players’ expressions) or closeups (which make it difficult to see the whole play).

    And while college football is good on TV, the best way to see UH’s four-wide offense is at the stadium. Best seats? Brown level or higher in the South end zone. It’s amazing to see the routes, coverages and adjustments.

    Definitely! Some sports… close up is good, while others… gotta sit a little farther up/back to see the whole picture.

  37. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2011 9:11 am

    Several years ago, when it was rare to have 300-pounders, UH recruited a defensive tackle to be a Gilbert Brown-like space eater. Basically, as the coach put it, his job was to be a “big ass” and hold the point.

    But then he got into a good fitness program, and lost a lot of weight.

    Sort of reminded me of a candy tester who develops diabetes.

  38. gigi-hawaii March 25, 2011 9:12 am

    I like HDTV. I get to see the names on the jerseys, something you can’t see at the stadium.

    Also, the camera shows the entire field so we can see the entire offense.

  39. Michigan Warrior March 25, 2011 9:12 am

    So… Scout.com is predicting that we will lose 4 of 6 road games, and that Reno, even with the departure of Kaepernick and Taua, will rule the conference. Hmmm…

  40. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2011 9:16 am

    At Murakami Stadium, a terrible place to watch the game is from the press box, especially the second level. Instead of a one-pane window, there are bordered rectangles. Because the area is covered, I always thought it would be best to not have any windows, so reporters could have an unobstructed view and could hear the crowd. But the officials said that’s not possible because of threat of thefts.

    Then again, there was that season when they did not replace the burnt-out lightbulb in the bathroom. It was like a GEICO commercial question: Does a blind man pee in the dark?

  41. Michigan Warrior March 25, 2011 9:16 am

    I still think LaTech may be a more difficult opponent than both Reno and Fresno.

    Last season, we paid $450 for ppv after taxes and fees. Oceanic/UH made less than the previous year.

    Oceanic should charge less so more people will buy the package. Wouldn’t that lead to bigger profit?

    All I know is they better not charge $500. That’s really over the top.

    I watched the video. Interesting, but I have my doubts.

    I’ve tried the Atkins Diet and was a vegetarian for a while, too.

    I lost weight on the Atkins, but my cholesterol shot up. Doc said, “You might lose weight, but you will die of a heart attack.”

    Vegetarian diet led to weight gain, and was so boring I dropped it.

  51. gigi-hawaii March 25, 2011 10:05 am

  53. LizKauai March 25, 2011 10:13 am

    gigi- moderation, cut out the processed carbs (white rice, while flour, regular pasta), increase brown rice, quinoa, have more Indian spices, lower red meat, increase veggies… cut out alcohol and caffeine.


    You need to eat some whole carbs for energy and to get your body to process carbs. Cutting out carbs altogether will play havoc with internal organs.

  60. Derek March 25, 2011 10:36 am

    Pre-season predictions are a waste of time. Even in the fall before anybody is playing. We were predicted to finish anywhere from 5th to 7th in the pre-season last year and we ended up being co-champs. The polls mean nothing until the 4th or 5th game of the season. But, I like being the underdogs. And I don’t think Nevada will be that good this year either. They lose too much. Losing Kaepernick, Taua, and Moch will hurt the Pack more than you think. They lost abot 3,000 yards of rushing and about 3,000 yards of passing and Moch was the man main on defense for them. That’s huge.

    The most interesting thing this spring is who will be the backups for the OL. There are a lot of young guys waiting on the wings, guys who are true freshmen, redshirt freshmens, and sophomores. Some of them will press for playing time for sure. I’m sure Coach Shaw will be prepared in case of injuries. And, we hope Austin Hansen wins his appeal and can play again before the season starts.

  61. Kazz March 25, 2011 10:36 am

    The best seats are anywhere in the stadium where the live atmosphere and craziness of the crowd makes you feel a part of something bigger than your individual self.

    With that being said, I’ll forever PASS on seats above the orange.

  67. rage777 March 25, 2011 11:07 am

    I once was so excited because I got front row tickets to see Whitesnake. After the concert, I realized that front row tickets are overrated. I had to strain my neck to see the band, then I had to keep rotating my neck to see the other band members because I was so close. Not only that I couldn’t hear for the next 12 hours because we were right next to the gigantic speakers.

    When we got Boyz 2 Men tickets, we had the level just above the lower level in the Blaisdell, and those were the best seats. Nobody to obstruct your view and not to many people behind you to throw crap at you.


    Shouldn’t their contracts state which attendance they are talking about? Why make the contract harder to enforce and more confusing then they already are?

    When I went to the Pyramid once to watch the Wahine play LBSU in volleyball, the crowds were pathetic. Both teams were top 5 teams and the turnout was still bad. I remember there were more UH fans then LBSU fans, but I guess that happens a lot in volleyball.

    If they ever put a college in the Hermosa/Manhattan Beach area, you might see the greatest volleyball support, maybe even more then Hawaii. People seem to really love volleyball around here. Go to the beach on the weekend and all the volleyball courts are full.

  73. rage777 March 25, 2011 11:17 am


    My weight loss strategy was shrink the stomach by not eating much. I figured since I didn’t really do much most days, just work then home, I didn’t need all the calories from food. I eat some fruit during the day, but don’t eat a breakfast or lunch, then I ate a salad for dinner. I ended up losing 20 pounds and getting down to 15% body fat. Of course, everybody told me not to eat like that, it was bad for me, etc. but the results were very good. I don’t do the diet anymore because I am just trying to maintain my weight now, but keeping the stomach small (I think) is the best method. You will have to deal with a lot of noises from your stomach in the beginning and you will have to have the will power to not eat, but I saw results. Lost 10 pounds the first month, then 5 the next. Took me about another 4 months to lose the last 5.

    Thanks, mctruck… I actually was healthiest when I was doing regular taichee and yoga. Tones the body and focuses the mind.

    I burn fat when I am in love… weight just drops off. It’s been about 20 years now… 😈 sigh…

    No, Jollibee is BIG in the Philippines! It satisfies Filipino palates.

    In fact, the filipina at the next table asked, “How do you like filipino food?”

    Can you blow out! Tarheels up on Marquette by 25 at the half. Also, Kansas 41, Richmond 22 at the half too. Turn out the lights, the party over! These games are not exciting at all, unless you’re rooting for the favorites. Maybe the next pair of games coming up will be better.

  124. Michigan Warrior March 25, 2011 3:03 pm

    Re: “Americanized filipino food to satisfy the American palate.”

    A few years ago, we used to be regular customers of a Chinese restaurant in our neighborhood. I grew up on those awesome noodles and sweet/sour shrimp from Wong Kung in Waipahu. Throughout my years overseas and on the mainland, I’ve never been able to find “Chinese” food that tasted the same. This particular restaurant was the closest.

    So, one night, we stopped in and asked the owner why so many Chinese restaurants offered the same dish, yet they tasted very differently. His response…

    Chinese restaurants tailor their food to the tastes of the area they are in. When he owned a restaurant in New York, he prepared most dishes on his menu differently than now in the Metro Detroit area. The same can be said about his sibling’s restaurant in Chicago. They prepare it one way, and yet even when they cook their own food, they prepare it specifically for themselves. He said customers in different areas have different tastes. If they don’t cook for their customers, no one comes. They visit different restaurants in the area at least monthly to taste how others are cooking their food.

    Made sense to me.

  125. gigi-hawaii March 25, 2011 3:06 pm


    That might be true, but the customers at the Waipahu Jollibee were mostly filipino.

  126. d1shima March 25, 2011 3:17 pm

    Most of the customers of almost any establishment in Waipahu are Filipino!

  127. Michigan Warrior March 25, 2011 3:24 pm

    And no doubt that most Filipino restaurants have settled on a taste of the area, if not the island.

    Also, the Philippines being so spread out with at least three distinctly different areas, the same dishes are also prepared differently in country. If you take a look at recipes listed on the various food websites, even ingredients used vary according to where the dish was learned… ie. Luzon vs. Visayas vs. Mindanao. (Where some dishes might call for Patis, or Fish Sauce, another of the same recipe might use Oyster Sauce instead.)

  128. gigi-hawaii March 25, 2011 3:29 pm

    All I can say is that the Pearl Cooler and the vermicelli dish were so unusual — very different from anything I have ever tasted anywhere, and I have traveled internationally.

    Give it a try and get back to us. Am curious as to your opinion of the food.

  129. Michigan Warrior March 25, 2011 3:29 pm

    Just saying… just because the majority of the customers are Filipino doesn’t mean the food will only taste one way. There’s a Filipino restaurant near where we had our first store. I’ll never eat there again. Most of the food we had just tasted weird to me… but they do pretty good business amongst the local community.

    Was just using our neighborhood Chinese restaurant as an example, since the owner brought this to our attention. We’d never really thought about it that way until he mentioned it.

  130. gigi-hawaii March 25, 2011 3:32 pm

    Who would have thought to put pearls of taro in a coconut smoothie that can be sucked up thru an ultra-wide straw???

    Gigi… those pictures are great! That’s a huge restaurant! And those food shots make me wish we were back home!

    There’s a restaurant chain here that “Broasts” their chicken. It’s like crispy, deep fried chicken, but without the grease. And it’s really tender.

  134. gigi-hawaii March 25, 2011 3:49 pm


    I guess of all the meats available in the world, chicken is the most ubiquitous and is my favorite.

    Real season begins now.

    The briefing yesterday about the Hawaii Professional Football League was very interesting indeed. The founders and their key supporters are looking way-y-y-y-y down the road to develop the sport in a way that addresses both local desires and economic issues. One of the key components in their recruiting strategy is to identify not only local players who are not quite good enough to play in the NFL but but also military men who want to play football but did not go to college for a variety of reasons – primarily financial – before it’s too late.

    For those folks around this blog who are profoundly interested in football, perhaps you might want to get involved.

    CHANGE OF SUBJECT: We are putting together a MAJOR community service project – expecting between 300 & 400 volunteers – on Saturday, April 23rd as part of Earth Day/Month. I need caterers for the volunteers’ breakfast before the start of the project and for the lunch to be served after the project, entertainment during the lunch, and key volunteer captains. Caterers and entertainmers will be paid. Please contact me at swood at hoku dot com for more information – be sure to include day or cell phone number.

    Finally, the information about the current capital improvements budget for the University of Hawai`i – Manoa’s Department of Athletics has arrived. Will post it over the weekend.

    Back to work for another 45 minutes or so and then on to see some softball and baseball tonight.

  137. Michigan Warrior March 25, 2011 4:12 pm

    Gigi.. I agree… So many ways to prepare chicken! I love turkey too.

    Capitol/Doc… Thanks for all the info! Interesting and good things going on!

    Wish my Dad wasn’t in the hospital… he would’ve loved to perform for this project.

  138. RainbowBaseballFan March 25, 2011 4:32 pm

    That is right. This is why I like baseball lots of level swingers. After a loss i like how the bows go straight to the batting cage to work themselves to the point of dehydration because I expect nothing less. Rest and academics are for teams with coaches and fans that think small time.

    In talking to coach Mike Trapaso he listens to fans like me which makes him a great coach.

    Dialogue from “The Dark Knight” when Bruce Wayne is trying to figure out The Joker’s motives:

    Alfred:A long time ago, I was in Burma. My friends and I were working for the local government. They were trying to buy the loyalty of tribal leaders by bribing them with precious stones. But their caravans were being raided in a forest north of Rangoon by a bandit. So we went looking for the stones. But in six months, we never met anyone who had traded with him. One day I saw a child playing with a ruby the size of a tangerine. The bandit had been throwing the stones away.

    Bruce Wayne: So why steal them?

    Alfred: Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren’t looking for anything logical, like money. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. SOME MEN JUST WANT TO WATCH THE WORLD BURN..

  160. homey ℞ March 25, 2011 5:13 pm

    “Tell me Albert Pujols, no can hit the ball with a level swing yeah. Yeah homey, take a look at my swing in slow motion, through the hitting zone I’m swinging up. Better yet, take a look at all the great hitters, Babe, Ted Williams, Bonds, A-Rod, Manny…you’ll see homes.” FLICK!


    d1 – yep, fried chicken, old ancient filipino recipe.

    So there are no changes in the projected OL starters so far as this Spring Training goes; but how about the progress of the ones in the ‘wings’ as Derek mentions previously in the blog.

    How do they size up so far? Is there any progress made so far in terms of their strengths/weaknesses?

    Can we get an position by position update on not just the tentative 1st team depth?

    A few words per player would suffice. Some of these players/recruits we have watched in HS games and recruiting video? How are they playing out???

    I’m thinking the seeding is really the selection committee’s NCAA pool.

    That can’t be good if a group can actually set the brackets to their advantage and still get it wrong.

  183. wafan March 25, 2011 5:53 pm

    I remember my kids telling me about a British horror movie named “Flick” or something like that. Released in the mid-2000’s, i think.

  190. wafan March 25, 2011 6:03 pm

    Oops. Flick is from “”A Bug’s Life” not “Antz”.

    And, the movie was released 2007 in the UK. Looks like a strange one with a person who comes back to life after 50 years of death and looks for his 60+ year old girl friend. The guy needs to get a life. Bwah-ha-ha-ha-ha!

    Always a good idea to go in for a specific reason.

    Bubble drinks suddenly appeared and were really popular up here about 8 years ago. They disppeared as quickly about 6 years ago. The bubbles were made from tapioca rather than taro.

    You could not walk around town or in the shopping centers without seeing just about every kid with one of those colorful soft drinks. Cannot find a place that sells them anymore.

    it cost over $100 to scan the engine to determine the cause of the “check engine” light.

    plus the cost of the servicing.


    dont know if Hyundai would have covered it in the warranty

  234. gigi-hawaii March 25, 2011 7:17 pm

    anybody else gonna wait til they’re 70 to collect Social Security?

  235. homey ℞ March 25, 2011 7:29 pm

    I have my own OBDII scanner.

    You could have taken it to Hyundai since it was still under warranty and they would have checked it out for free. Then they would write up the problem with estimates. If the repair is not covered under warranty at least you know what caused the CEL.

    Since you already paid and don’t do your own repairs then never mind…GO BASEBOWS!

    I hope there is Social Security when I reach 70.

    I always tread lightly when speaking of auto repairs.

    Auto workers, like electricians and plumbers, are key people.

    Or your husband.

    I think SS is supposed to run out of money by 2040. Hubby and I will be in our 90s, possibly, not guaranteed.

    Dilemma: if he collects at age 66, he will get $2100+ per month.

    If he collects at age 70, he will get $2900+.

    what would you do?

  246. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2011 8:03 pm

    I think a person should work as long as they wish to work.

    If I retired, what would I do? Start a blog?

  253. papajoe2 March 25, 2011 8:13 pm

    #234 gigi-hawaii.SS at 79 is $1,000 more per month than at 62 for me. 12 x 8 (#of months x # years before 70) = 96. 96 months at $1,500 per month = $144,000. How long do you have to live pass 70 years old to make up the $144,000 at $1,000 more per month (12 years)? I cannot go that far cuz public skuul was too long time ago. But joking aside, you get the point. Collect it while you can. Besides, how much will the $1,000 really be worth 8 years from now? If you don’t need the money now, then take the money and invest it in silver or gold. 12 years from now you can still buy the same things for the same value of the precious metals, if not more. Also at 82, hopefully we all still alive to spend it.

    like, who would have predicted that #1 Duke would lose to Arizona.

  264. papajoe2 March 25, 2011 8:25 pm

    Whether it’s Obama or somebody else, I believe that SS will be saved somehow because just tooo many people are involved. Imagine if it was to shut down now. Many, many are people living off SS as their only income. What will happen to them? I know Obama knows about the shortcomings of SS so hopefully he will do something about it. It may not be a priority just right now, but I’m sure he or Congress will address it, hopefully sooner rather than later.

  265. gigi-hawaii March 25, 2011 8:27 pm

    well, i hope so, for my sake. I am 65 and collecting SS. Don’t need medicare b/c of hubby’s plan at work.

    how would you know? lol

  269. momo March 25, 2011 8:30 pm

    GIGI The key to collecting ss is that it will take 12 years of collecting before you break even. So if you are collecting ss past the 12 th year, your are ahead of the game. So the other factor is how is your health? If you can make this time difference go ahead and collect. I haVE COLLECTED FOR 13 YERAS.

  270. gigi-hawaii March 25, 2011 8:32 pm


    the worst fear we have is OUTLIVING OUR SAVINGS. If that happens, we’re screwed.

    that’s why hubby thinks $2900+ at age 70 is better in the long run.

    I dunno.

  271. papajoe2 March 25, 2011 8:34 pm

    Okay basebows. Time to make your move. Only 2 more innings. Never say never. You guys did it before, do it again.

  274. papajoe2 March 25, 2011 8:39 pm

    #270. Like I said, invest it in gold or silver. At age 70 it will be worth more. Did you know that they need silver to make the flat screen TVs? At least that is what I was told. At the rate that our government is printing money, it might be worthless in the future. Gold and silver will always keep its value.

  275. gigi-hawaii March 25, 2011 8:39 pm

    it’s too bad hubby doesn’t like to blog. There is an Acer netbook he could use to log on to the warrior beat. but he prefers to watch movies from netflix.

    in what form do you buy silver and gold? In coins? Jewelry? Bars? and where do you store them?

  277. Kazz on Droid_X March 25, 2011 8:41 pm

    Stephanie Ricketts punished the s— out of that ball. Thing cleared the outfield net and into the batting cages.

    Noticed how Papa Leahey and Pal can talk story during the UH baseball game. When PL did softball, he tried to talk story but the game just went by. Softball was just too fast for Papa. That’s just 1 reason I like softball, the game moves really fast. He’s still and icon in my book though. Maybe they should make a statue of him at the athletic complex in gold and then have it bronzed.

    On this day (March 25) in the first year (2007) of The Warrior Beat blog … count dips to an average 234 comments on a Sunday and no schedule news yet. The following comments indicate the mood of the day…

    Comment from: Stephen [Member]


    I was kidding. He was talking about your favorite newspaper, of course.

    Anyway, nice spin attempt by the AD, but we don’t have any agenda. I don’t even know what I’m going to do tomorrow, which is why I post blogs so late.

    I’ve stated over and over he’s a nice guy and that he’s done good things. Was I supposed to send flowers?

    I also said he messed up the Riley deal and the football scheduling.

    If we need a comment from him, we usually go through the channels and either he’ll call us or he’ll have someone issue a statement.

    But, really, if he’s got a complaint he can always call me. I mean, even the Kid knows five different ways to reach me. Anyway, mostly he deals with Ferd.

    03/25/07 @ 14:38

    Comment from: Da Punchbowl Kid [Visitor]

    Yep. Tsai is right. I counted ’em just now with all the fingers on one hand and I DO know of fiveways to reach him. He’s not counting the prayer and incense at the little shrine I have to Tsai in my house. Kind of a meditation nook, right there next to the bathroom door.

    03/25/07 @ 14:54

    Comment from: bulla [Visitor]


    I agree, the Kid is one resourceful guy, i think he is in cahoots with SteveM in getting access to all the TSAIKOS, but that is just my iddy biddy theory, ahah.

    can’t believe HF, don’t even want to comment anymore….the only difference between that and the mule ride in Moloka’i is we’d have to catch a plane to Moloka’i.

    take it for what its worth. when you want to dump on your ‘fan base’, and discredit their opinions and comments, you have just crossed the line from being arrogant to asinine.

    if you feel the only entity you answer to is the chancellor, then it is time for us lowly, uneducated, low income, non-contributing members to society, imbecilic, uninformed fans to stand up and make our voices heard…if not by you, then maybe the chancellor is our only option.

    just thinking guys….the clock continues to tick……

    He was talking about your favorite newspaper, of course.

    He was talking about Honolulu Weekly? Hehe, just kidding. 🙂

    Actually that’s a great example of the independent thinking of the posters here (and on other message boards). While we all joke around with tsai-kos gimmick, in truth, each of you is very intelligent and independent . That’s why I’m amazed that so many smart people from diverse backgrounds seemed to have bonded on this one issue.

    03/25/07 @ 15:00

    <bComment from: bulla [Visitor]


    You hit the proverbial nail on the head….

    ‘That’s why I’m amazed that so many smart people from diverse backgrounds seemed to have bonded on this one issue’

    The UH fans are long and deep, and we only represent a very small faction of those that would like to be as eloquent as us, haha. just look at the hits you get every month…..those that jump in and blog are the brave ones…sometimes, and depending on who you are talking to.

    but we do have a diverse and interesting group!

    Comment from: bulla [Visitor]


    sorry, didn’t know you have climbed higher on the slopes since our last communication.

    in reference to the former position of HF and his hint of ‘raproachment’, in actuality i believe you meant rapprochement, i would offer the following opinion.

    HF is in a no win position at this time, and it behooves him to circle his wagons, admit a ‘slight’ error in judgment and look for a mutual resolution to the problem at task. however, due to time constraints and lack of both available and viable opponents, it becomes even more ‘herculean’ of a task to accomplish.

    he has the support of UH fans if he would only include rather than exclude as the process develops.

    03/25/07 @ 15:28

    Comment from: Da Punchbowl Kid [Visitor]

    raproachment has the same meaning as rapprochement. Both terms originally dealt with schizm in the church as well as between religions.

    03/25/07 @ 15:39

    Comment from: Stephen [Member]

    Re: Anonymity

    I often get letters from anonymous people saying I’m a jerk or whatever (usually from a 96822 zip code). I don’t let it bother me because how do you respond to an anonymous letter?

    I think the AD must have the same feeling when he sees posts on messages boards, forums and blogs. There is a difference, of course. He can actually respond and defend himself on such boards, forums and blogs. Also, I’ve actually had the privilege of meeting many of the posters. They’re not nutty or so-called Tsaikos. They’re real people with real jobs and lives. And, quite frankly, they’re much smarter than some of the officials. They at least have better local sensibilities. Most of all, they represent the people. They shouldn’t be dismissed.

    And Esme Nii emailed me today. She thanked me for inviting her to blog party 2, and said she recognized my real name. I wrote columns for the Ohana page when she was editor of it.

    Esme, you are welcome to our next party, too. It will probably be a tailgater on Sept. 1 at Richardson Field opposite the stadium.

  307. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc March 26, 2011 12:09 am

    I cannot imagine what life would be like if DrDoc predeceases me since I am not eligible for Social Security and we don’t have any savings or assets. Thank you very much, Al Qaida. I definitely have to shuff off this mortal coil ASAP unless I can somehow win a mainland lottery or really brush up on my poker-playing skills.

    Trying to survive in Hawai`i on less than $1,000 a month will only work if I can find a safe place under a bridge somewhere – and that assumes I can still work and have access to electricity to power up the electronic stuff.

    BACK TO SPORTS: At least today’s volleyball match was not a sweep, but still……. And as for the Basebows, one really has to have a program in hand to figure out who’s playing at what position. The game was a real pain, however, because of the large number of kids running around in the stands unsnoopervised.

    Did watch three innings of softball before heading over to The Les. Saw Pomai and Ralph about six rows above their normal location.

    Two double-headers tomorrow – baseball at 3 pm and softball at 4 pm. Hope to see some Tsai-folks at either or both. I’ll be going back and forth throughout the late afternoon and early evening.

    May have baseball tix for next Friday evening and Saturday afternoon. We’re going to the volleyball match on Friday and on Saturday, DD has to work and I have to do an afternoon workshop thing so no Saturday afternoon Bowsball for me.

    Off to bed – take care, everyone.

    Saw your reply. Stretching things out is a good idea except when you are late for a flight (Onosai Tanuvasa (RIP) in 1972 late for the ride to the airport at 7:00 am on the way to Knoxville). Thanks to HPD he made the flight so to speak.

    Give me a morning when the Tsaiko’s will be out in force at practice and I’ll make an Agnes’ stop on my way in.

    Stand and sit graduations. Did you lean to the left. Lean to the right. Stand up. Sit down. Polite applause or fight, fight, fight?

  325. Kekoa March 26, 2011 7:46 am

    S. Ricketts gave that softball a ride over the left field fence! Like her pitching, she is a real powerhouse!

    Good job ladies. Get back on it today.

    Gratz to Na Wahine on yesterday’s win. Good to see those hits again, but still stranding too many runners on the bases. Keep it going, girls! Heading in the right direction! Have fun out there!

  329. Michigan Warrior March 26, 2011 8:39 am

    UH should announce both… tickets sold AND turnstile counts, and let the powers that be choose which number to go with. I mean, if we are to compete against other schools in attendance, then apples should be compared with apples, no?

  330. homey ℞ March 26, 2011 8:50 am

    Anyone else makes like a Jedi in front of those automatic opening doors?

    Someone is messing with the definition of attendance at BYU. Well, not only BYU.

  331. uniline365 March 26, 2011 9:09 am

    great article and great techniques! Very informative… Keep up the good work!

    While we’re waiting for ST, a trivia question:

    Who was the first Tsaikette to attend a lunch Cattle Call?

    No need to post.

    Answer will be found late tonight on the next blog entry. .

  338. papajoe2 March 26, 2011 10:09 am

    I left the house at halftime with BYUH trailing. How did they do? Seems no news about it. dishima posted too bad for the Seasiders. I take it that they lost. What was the score?

  339. homey ℞ March 26, 2011 10:14 am

    Okay den, who is a Jedi?

    Koa-mahu was the first Tsaikette to attend a cc.

  340. Lanaiboy March 26, 2011 10:17 am

    Yes, BYUH lost. BYUH had four opportunities to tie the game in the last minute but, unfortunately, had four turnovers. Jet Chang had an amazing game, looked like the Jimmer with his three-point shooting and drives to the basket. But probably tried to do too much in the end.

  341. Fanane.com March 26, 2011 10:59 am

    Great post. I learned a lot from this. I also watch for the detail in other sites but this post sums it all up to refer back to until all are mastered.

    Simply put I had not ever heard of Virginia Commonwealth University before now, but their basketball team kicks butt! They accomplished what exactly quite a few men and women deemed as hopeless as a result of smashing the best ranked basketball team in the country, Kansas. Much like Butler before them, Virginia Commonwealth University took charge against a higher performing basketball team so when the final buzzer went off ; these folks were the victors of the biggest upset in the 2011 NCAA tournament thus far.

    I thought it was going to be some rehashed old information, but I’m glad I stopped by. I will post a link to this site on my blog. My visitors will find this information very useful.

  349. Manual Coman March 30, 2011 1:39 am

    I was studying something else about this on another blog. Interesting. Your linear perspective on it is diametrically opposed to what I read earlier. I am still mulling over the diverse points of view, but I’m inclined to a great extent toward yours. And no matter, that’s what is so good about modern democracy and the marketplace of thoughts online.

  350. Felisa Arts March 31, 2011 7:27 am

    To appropriately rephrase comments, you have to be creative and clever. Convince the person that even though the content is extremely unoriginal, it’s still stuff they should have it posted on their jack3d usp labspage.

Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this website could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its field. Wonderful blog!

    Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game.
