Courtesy of Mark Platte, we are in possession of four tickets to tomorrow’s UH football game.
Two are going to Al, who won the volleyball contest but cannot attend the matches.
The other two are going to post No. 400.
And, by the way, these sideline tickets are in the Mauka Orange, fifth row.

One of Inoke Funaki’s early fans is tomorrow’s opposing quarterback, Weber State’s Cameron Higgins.
“I looked up to Inoke when he was in high school at Kahuku,” Hawai‘i-raised Higgins said before yesterday’s practice at Aloha Stadium. “I idolized that guy. There are some good memories. I was in intermediate (school) when he was playing on this field. I always watched his games.”
Funaki, 25, is a fourth-year junior. He went on a two-year church mission before enrolling at UH in 2005.

OK, the desk is getting cluttered, so today, I’m giving away:
* Four tickets to tonight’s volleyball match (lower level, sixth row, right behind the opposing team’s bench).
• Program from the Redskins-Jets Aug. 16 preseason game.
• Program from UH-Florida game (autographed by Greg McMackin). OK, we know how the game turned out. But it was the debut of the McMackin Era.
Contest rules will be in the Comments section.

Happy birthday to Stretch, the hardest-working man in engineering. I’m sure the Boise State coaches are wishing him the best.
I know we always see Stretch through amber-colored glasses.
