Kids' Day, myki's birthday

Yesterday’s UH Coaches Camp drew 472 kids (ages 5-12) — more than double last year’s total.
Even more remarkable, as of Friday night, there were only three pre-registered students.
The 469 walk-up campers forced UH officials to scramble for extra T-shirts and Otter Pops.
Members of the UH women’s basketball team helped speed along the sign-ups.
In all, the event, which concludes with this morning’s 9-to-11 session, has been a success.

* * *

Here are the Rainbow Wahine basketball players:


* * *

Quarterback coach Nick Rolovich played catch with the kids:


* * *

Former Saint Louis School quarterback Darnell Arceneaux also helped out:


* * *

Head coach Greg McMackin was involved heavily in coaching the kids:


* * *

Here’s the original “Rock” — Maa Tanuvasa:


* * *

Former UH wideout and assistant coach Buzzy Preston is in town. Buzzy is an assistant coach at Georgia Tech, under Paul Johnson. The Warriors will practice for two days on Georgia Tech’s campus in Atlanta in preparation for the season opener against Florida.


* * *

Safety Leonard Peters, now with the Chicago Bears, worked hard. He taught, performed the slap dance (twice) and then passed out the refreshments.




* * *

Here are some scenes from the camp:

And here’s Max Curran (son of sportscaster Bobby and food critic Jo):

Almost forgot to mention that today is Myki’s birthday. So raise a toast to one of the great women of the blog.

    ST – you must have an incredible memory for names and faces…

  4. Ralph July 13, 2008 2:27 am

    with that many walk ups the coaching staff must have freaked out! From a disappointing few early registrants to a massive turnout…great for the kids, and the program

  5. Ralph July 13, 2008 2:28 am

    our wahine bb players look kinda of short

  6. Ralph July 13, 2008 2:33 am

    these kids play pop Warner at this young age? Curran’s son looks to little to be playing tackle football or any brand of football where there is a chance of a collision.

  7. 99club July 13, 2008 2:48 am

    I’d show that photo of the B-ball wahines to prospective recruits and tell them “Just some of the fellow student athletes you’ll run into in the gym and around school.” Nice of them to step up and help out.

  8. 99club July 13, 2008 3:17 am

    Looks like Florida has lost two of their safeties. d1shima posted an article on the last post about Munroe…add John Curtis too. Tough break for those guys. Looks like this will be it for Curtis since he’s had two surgeries prior to this injury.

    Florida safeties Dorian Munroe and John Curtis will miss the upcoming season because of knee injuries.

    Munroe tore the ACL in his right knee and will have season-ending surgery. The junior played in 26 games the last two years and was a key contributor on special teams. He led the Gators with 13 special teams tackles last season.

    Curtis tore his left ACL for the third time. The senior already had two surgeries on that knee, and coach Urban Meyer said the latest injury could end his career.

    Curtis played in 17 games the last three years, including 11 last season.

    “I’m confident Dorian will battle through the rehabilitation process and come back a better football player,” Meyer said. “John has suffered through multiple knee injuries, and the medical staff along with John and his family will need to evaluate his long-term future in football.”

  9. WarriorMojo July 13, 2008 3:27 am

    Wow, GREAT photos of the kids’ camp, ST! Who took them?

    Glad to see Buzzy Preston is doing well. He was always a super nice guy.

    Is the Brett Favre situation the epitome of “distraction” or what?

    Well, off to Washington DC in a few hours, then to Seattle. Will be away from Paradise for two weeks. Will try to take some pictures of Redskin Park. Would be great if Colt was in them, but….

    Did a Jojo yesterday, but today it’s definitely Esme and out.

  10. 99club July 13, 2008 3:34 am

    Oops…didn’t read all of d1shima’s linked article. It mentioned John Curtis as well.

  11. Kekoa July 13, 2008 3:49 am

    Good Grief!…No can sleep. Woke from a nightmare about fumbler getting back in office over a legal twist of events. JD ends up being put in charge of the SSC and shares the office with the janitor! Yikes! Only thing missing was the cold sweat because the A/C keeps our room nice and cool.

    Man, I gotta quit drinking that Gatorade before bed and switch to Hawaiian Punch like Liz suggested.

  12. Garret July 13, 2008 4:06 am

    It is great that the camp was such a success! That awesome turnout means that so many of the youth of Hawaii now have a positive experience on UH’s campus with UH coaches…which could pay dividends in the future.

  13. Garret July 13, 2008 4:10 am

    Preparing in Atlanta is a great idea–I’ve been to both Atlanta and Florida in the summer and they have similar heat/humidity conditions. So, the Warriors will get to practice and get acclimated to the conditions they will be playing in. Plus, with friendly people around they do not have to worry about spying or people trying to mess them up.

  14. Garret July 13, 2008 4:14 am

    Very interesting to read about the injury problems in the Florida secondary! Thank you to d1shima and 99club for bringing it up and discussing the issue. They will find backups who can eventually start for them…but there will be an adjustment period for the new starters and the new guys will probably not be as athletic as the original starters (which is probably why the other guys were starting before they got hurt). The team they play in the first game will probably benefit the most…who is that again?

  15. Garret July 13, 2008 4:17 am

    One thing to consider is that a secondary has to be a cohesive unit, since if two guys think that the other guy will be covering someone then a coverage gets blown and a WR runs free…now Florida just has Fall camp to get their secondary to be able to communicate and work together. All it takes is a 2-3 miscommunications between DBs for a game to turn around completely…

  16. Garret July 13, 2008 4:22 am

    Wow, I was the last to sleep among the 8 people in my house and have been the only one awake for 20 minutes or so. It is good that I only need 3-4 hours of sleep…let me see if I can go my UH Google stuff before they wake up and I have to be a host again.

  17. Garret July 13, 2008 4:24 am

    KGMB has an short article (and video) about the UH camp. I’m sure that Leila’s video would been awesome and she would have had the best and most extensive video coverage…I wish that Advertiser management would get reasonable soon.

    Coach Greg Mcmackin and his staff held their first football camp of the summer on Saturday, and the little guys really have a refreshing take on the game. What’s great about the University of Hawaii’s youth football camp is there’s as much learning as there is cheering.

    But just because everyone’s rooting for each other, it doesn’t take away from how serious these little guys are about the game.

  18. Garret July 13, 2008 4:27 am

    George Noga update!

    Winning will be a bigger challenge than normal for the Wild, who will be battling through injuries and inexperience. Alaska brought just 17 players to Texas, fewer than the 20 Deemer would normally take.

    In IFL games, there are eight players on offense and defense.

    Missing in action will be:

    George Noga: Along with Tosi, the former Hawaii standout and CFL veteran wreaks havoc on opposing lineman (with 14 tackles for a loss and 10 sacks) but Noga couldn’t make the trip due to work commitments.

  19. Garret July 13, 2008 4:28 am

    I hope that Colt gets his contract done soon…training camp is about to start and Washington’s pool of rookie money is almost gone.

    Seven out of the ten 2008 draft picks are now under contract. The two names that stand out are wide receiver Devin Thomas and tight end Fred Davis. Davis as you may recall, infamously overslept for a minicamp practice. Quarterback Colt Brennan is the other unsigned draft pick.

    Thomas and Davis need to have their deals done and completed in the next eight days. Rookies who hold out of training camp, especially the first one for a new coach, is a recipe for trouble.

  20. Garret July 13, 2008 4:30 am

    Another Washington paper mentioned how Colt is one of the 3 Washington draftees who doesn’t have his contract negotiations completed yet.

    Only sixth-round quarterback Colt Brennan and Washington’s remaining second-rounders, receiver Devin Thomas and tight end Fred Davis, have yet to agree to terms.

  21. Garret July 13, 2008 4:32 am

    Sad to read (but not surprising) how the rising travel costs affect UH.

    “I check it every day, as a matter of fact,” UH athletic director Jim Donovan admitted. “I have 100 shares of Chevron, but that is not why I check it.”

    Instead the reasons lay at the core of UH’s bottom line, where the Warriors have been staring at travel costs that have doubled in less than a year. When oil prices reached $140 a barrel three weeks ago, UH officials say what had been a $400-$425 airline ticket to the West Coast for each player on one of its teams last year became an $800-$850 fare for the same flight this year.

    Fuel that was $52 a barrel in January 2007 hit an all-time high of $147.27 a barrel in trading Friday before settling at $145.08, numbers that underline — for a school that puts all 19 of its teams on planes each year, some of which regularly log 30,000 miles per season — just how precariously perched UH is.

    Donovan said the Warriors paid $85,000 to charter to San Jose, Calif., for last year’s game with the Spartans, and $125,000 to Idaho. Donovan said UH was quoted a $319,000 fare for Fresno State this year.

  22. Garret July 13, 2008 4:34 am

    I hope that there is no conflict with Iran and that things stay as calm as possible in the rest of the Middle East…otherwise, UH’s travel costs will go WAY over budget. Several analysts are predicting $200-a-barrel prices within a year and “infinite” prices if there is a conflict in Iran.

    Donovan said travel for football and the fall sports has either been ticketed or is in the works. But UH is waiting before purchasing most of its fall travel and is budgeting based upon the $140-a-barrel level.

    “It is a crap shoot,” Donovan acknowledges. “If oil stays the same or comes down, then, good. But if it rises significantly, then …”

  23. Garret July 13, 2008 4:35 am

    Okay, I’d better stop now and take care of stuff at home before anyone wakes up. Hope that everyone has a great Sunday!

  24. bighilofan2 July 13, 2008 5:00 am

    Good morning Tsaikos everywhere!

    48 days to go

  25. losthawaiian July 13, 2008 5:00 am

    Hi Garret! Great info as always. Did you ever try that Beef Jerky I told you about from Bishop? I had some the other day and it’s still ono. BTW, are you having a Lo-cal calf call any time soon? Hopefully I can make it to one of those if I have the day off?

  26. bighilofan2 July 13, 2008 5:37 am

    howzit howzit Tsaikos everywhere. and good morning to you all, again.

    LizK and sjmacro,

    GREAT pix and videos you posted yesterday at #69 and #111. Liz, the one from the day before (bulla’s oration) was fantastic.

    I think the Warrior video guy should take lessons from you 2. especially you, sjmacro, you get the incloseinyoaface kine shotz.

    btw, anybody seen wat da video guy doing to hisself deze days? 😀

  27. 99club July 13, 2008 5:55 am


    I’m guessing the delay with Colt’s contract is his physical. He just got cleared the other day by his CO doc but I’m sure the ‘Skins will want to have their own physical done.

    Did a little checking on the injured DB/Safeties…only Munroe was a projected starter. Also saw an article by their local beat writer who was skeptical of the preseason #1 rankings. He’s not convinced their D and special teams are up to the task.

  28. 99club July 13, 2008 5:59 am

    Going to the land of bubbling tofu soup this week. I’ll still be a 5 hour time difference but in the ‘oddah direction. Carpe per diem!

  29. Garret July 13, 2008 6:03 am


    Unfortunately, I haven’t tried that beef jerky yet…but sometime I will!

    Lo Cal Calf Call on Wednesday at Ono Ono’s in Tustin. I figure that Ronnie will post the official notice soon. This will be our first Calf Call in awhile…it will be great to hear about the Bash and catch up with everyone.

  30. Garret July 13, 2008 6:04 am


    Thank you for pointing that out–I’m sure that you are correct about how the delay with Colt’s deal was probably due to his physical. Before signing any contract with a draft pick the physical is required.

  31. Garret July 13, 2008 6:06 am

    Breakfast is over…we’re taking our guests to a park now to let all the kids play.

  32. Kekoa July 13, 2008 6:15 am

    Garret ~ Have a good day on the playground…no fighting now, share your toys! Hehehehe.

  33. Kekoa July 13, 2008 6:24 am

    99club ~ I’m really excited about the gator game now! They’re giving us 27 points, have a weak secondary, over confident, looking ahead of their schedule – instead of the Warrior hurricane moving in their direction…it all spells disaster for the gecko’s if they don’t take heed.

    To the land of the morning calm?…You could prolly pick up UA gear for pennies on the dollar over there. All kinds of seasonal sports gear will be up for sale! You better pack a shipping crate to ship out of the APO, otherwize the airlines will soak you for all the big money you saved!

  34. Kekoa July 13, 2008 6:31 am

    Big Braddah Hilo!…Oh man. What more can I say? Liz and sj-macro’s show and tell is the whole truth brah.

    Get that swamp buggy tuned up. Get the fog horn cranked and ready. Study your coach Mack bible you got from the coach’s clinic. Pack your banana for the muggy wetter down in da swamp. No foget your Gator hook and a camera so you can make ‘um smile!

  35. Maverick July 13, 2008 7:33 am

  40. FloridaTed July 13, 2008 7:49 am

    Morning Tsaiko-Nation and Tsai-Meister.

    Warms my heart to see all these wide eyed kids full of life and enthusiasm. My grandsons are about that age and just started flag football.

    There seems to be a whole new attitude about sports as a whole and football in particular in Hawaii, ever since that magical run of 07 and 08. The Tsaikos have contributed mightily to this trend.

    I have a strong feeling that, as a program, Hawaii is about to turn the corner and step into the bigger times for good. This season will be very pivotal. If it turns out that the Warriors will be competitive, which WE know they will, and even contend for a WAC title or better, dispite what the Mainland perceives as a re-building year, we will have made a giant leap forward.

    I might even still be alive when some of these little kids strap on a Warrior uniform, lol.

    Have a great day everybody.

  41. FloridaTed July 13, 2008 8:21 am

    Did I chase everybody away? I took a shower this morning.

  42. FloridaTed July 13, 2008 8:28 am

    The way I see the Florida game is very simple. If our defense can hold them to have their usual production, we will win this game. We have to hold them somehow to under 24 points, not an easy task, but doable. In the second half, with adjustments, our offense will have found their grove. Well, I hope I’m right. echo, echo, echo………

  43. FloridaTed July 13, 2008 8:29 am

    Hey, it’s lonely in Tsaiko-town.

  44. FloridaTed July 13, 2008 8:30 am

    Talking to myself is not as much fun as I thought, lol. See ya laterz.

  45. lonomakana July 13, 2008 8:40 am

    I just saw Matt Lojeski’s name on the Milwaukee Bucks summer roster. He had 7 points in yesterday’s game.

  53. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 9:12 am

    Reading that Florida’s secondary has been decimated due to injury gives me hope that we might actually beat them next month. Let’s hope the Warriors remain healthy.

  54. MeiLing July 13, 2008 9:16 am

    Aloha Kakahiaka!!!

    I remember from last season that someone (JJ or Colt) was pointing out that knowing where the safeties were was a key to the UH offense with Colt & the WRs. (I think it was after the UW game.) With injuries to their starters and only Fall camp left for training, we might capitalize on that “hole” in the FL defense. (Did that make sense or did I not “get it’? I’m still learning…)

  55. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 9:21 am

    I read that Florida has depth, though…

  56. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 9:22 am

    The Florida keys (hey, I made a word play) will be the pass rush and their speed. If UH can’t block them, things will be difficult. Training camp will be important.

  57. MeiLing July 13, 2008 9:23 am

    Great pics of the Coaches Camp, ST.

    Is that like Hawaii or what, 3 pre-registered & 472 kids show up? Real Hawaiian time. Someone needs to figure out how to get more people to pre-register their kids. It affects planning for staffing & supplies, as noted in ST’s comments.

  58. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 9:23 am

    I feel sorry for John Clayton. He has to wear a suit every day.

  59. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 9:25 am

    Again, apologies because I’m still using the old camera.
    But I promise, absolutely, I’m learning the new camera today.

  61. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 9:31 am

    Florida’s got a lot of depth.
    Hawai‘i has depth, too.
    For those who weren’t following during the vonAppen era, there just wasn’t any depth. There were defensive linemen moving to offensive line — in midseason.
    Now UH is very deep.

  62. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 9:34 am

    ST, that makes JJ’s making winners of the 1999 team all the more remarkable. He used von Appen’s players.

  63. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 9:37 am

    Has anybody received their renewal notice from Oceanic re PPV? We haven’t. Hubby is concerned that Oceanic considers us newbies and will charge us newbie rate. He’ll call them on Monday.

    yeah, curves in the wrong places.

  73. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 9:45 am

    Times sure have changed. A hockey player gets an 11-year contract extension, going against the grain of deals.
    I remember when Magic Johnson signed what was considered to be a lucrative 25-year, $25-million contract. Yes, Magic Johnson was paid only $1 million a year. It eventually was amended to $21 million, seven years. But $3 million a year still seems like a bargain.

    Aloha Kakahiaka!

    Ralph- re being (too) young for football. I think that the kids were participating in more sports skills than just football. My youngest started playing t-ball at 5 – hand/eye coordination is a quality he has developed in spite of being dyslexic and being left-eye dominant and right-handed.

    More than that, I remember things that happened since I was about 1.5 years old (but not a few minutes ago… tsai). When I was 5, I felt I controlled my own destiny and things that happened to the contrary still influence me today. Meaning- giving a young child a positive experience with something they are interested in can have a lifetime effect.

    Future Warriors were served yesterday.

    woohoo! Way to go, UH!

  76. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 9:47 am

    I would be happy with $1 million, tax- free. I could do a lot with $1 million.

  77. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 9:48 am

    Actually, JJ and McMackin did a great job in 1999.
    JJ changed the offense.
    McMackin took the same players and moved them. Cornerbacks became safeties, safeties became outside linebackers, outside linebackers became middle linebackers, middle linebackers became defensive ends.
    Without changing the roster, McMackin made the defense faster.
    Wait until you see this year’s defense. It will be really fast.

  78. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 9:49 am

    $1 million isn’t tax free.

  79. Stretch July 13, 2008 9:50 am

  80. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 9:54 am

    MeiLing, there are more vids to share- just sharing glimpses of the 10-ring circus that was the blog bash.
    Every table, every corner, every conversation was a story in itself.

    Now I just have to figger out if xs-homey decided to go public or if he was caught in the Tsai-meister’s web. Some of my fave shots have the h-guy in them….

    bhf2- your bannah was in a good place to get a lot of airtime.

  83. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 9:57 am

    We’re going jet skiing.
    If I die tomorrow, which is a great possibility, you’re in charge of writing Tuesday’s blog.

  84. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 9:58 am

    Ever since Rock Hudson died and Meg Ryan got old, I don’t have any fave movie stars. So I guess Paula Abdul would be a start in the right direction.

    Go for it, ST!

  85. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 9:58 am

    ST- your children are really fantastic. Your comment about them gave me a big throat-lump. More than that, it was a reflection on how you choose to look at things. I am just now starting to “see”… it’s never too late!

  86. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 9:59 am

    Liz, uh, thanks for the videos.
    Wena likes it.
    The kids are making fun of their sniffling dad.
    I’m trying to blame it on the 4-hour cold Esme gave me.

  87. ryan July 13, 2008 10:00 am

    great pics from the camp. Is this a UH camp or is this a speed and quickness camp? Last year i remember hearing that it was a speed and quickness

  88. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 10:00 am

    whoa! Jet skiing! After sky diving and hang gliding, that’s got to be a very scary activity.

  89. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 10:02 am

    I must be super immune, cause Esme hugged me at the party and I haven’t gotten sick. Who said she was contagious?

  90. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 10:02 am

    Let’s not tell Leahey he was a late addition.
    He then comes in and has the best speech of the night.

  91. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 10:02 am

    hmmm. Rock and Meg.

    I’m more like a Billy-Bob, Buscemi, Stormare, Mirren, Blanchett fan.

  92. FloridaTed July 13, 2008 10:03 am

    Hi, LizK,

    I had a lot of fun browsing your blog. You’re a virtual info and sharing machine. Thanks a lot.

  93. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 10:04 am

    Oh, she wasn’t contagious at the party. She was contagious at the last rehearsal.

  94. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 10:04 am

    and the Cusacks

  95. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 10:05 am

    Leahey — I offered to pay his admission fee, but your kids said you had already paid it. That was after I offered to pay for Mufi.

  96. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 10:07 am

    Liz doesn’t go for looks and sex appeal in movie stars. haha

  97. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 10:08 am

    You’re welcome to join us tomorrow, Gigi, although I understand that if you fall in the drink wearing a mu‘umu‘u, you’ll sink like Jack Dawson.

  98. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 10:10 am

    nah, ST, I want to PRESERVE my life, not END it.

  99. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 10:10 am

    FloridaTed – one of the coolest things I learned about at my previous place of employment was Oral History. I was able to interview the old folks about their lives during the plantation days.

    Blogging is like an ongoing oral history.

    In the past, history was written and is remembered the way the writers intended.

    There was very little connection to the people living in those times experienced life.

    So rather than compiling and writing a book – we write as we go. And share impressions as they occur – subject to changing our minds about things in future hindsight, of course!

  100. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 10:11 am

    Thanks for the invite, though.

    gigi was offering to pay for everyone at the party. She gave me $25 extra so I put it in as a donation to Na Koa.

  102. Stretch July 13, 2008 10:13 am

    Time for me to take off now to fix my phone. My new cell phone didn’t charge overnight so it is completely dead. Something is wrong with either the phone or the charger. I should have kept my old phone.

  103. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 10:13 am

    Stretch, I gave you $25 cause I felt bad you lost our bet and had to buy me dinner at the K-call at Genji. You should have kept the money!

  104. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 10:14 am

    gigi- I guess I like to see real actors in films. Orlando Bloom in Kingdom of Heaven was “beautiful” and cool like Nigel Terry in Excalibur.

  105. Stretch July 13, 2008 10:14 am

    gigi – a bet is a bet and I lost, no worry. Thanks for the offer.

  106. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 10:15 am

    Stretch- did you get the iPhone? We keep extra GoPhones around the house for emergencies.

  107. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 10:17 am

    I used to see a movie every weekend. Now I rarely go to the theater. Last one I saw was “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.” French movie, real tear jerker. I read the book, too.

  108. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 10:19 am

    It’s a UH camp, but it’s run by Hawai‘i Speed and Quickness.
    Rich Miano’s phone number was used because the football team still doesn’t have a full-time secretary.

  109. GRM July 13, 2008 10:26 am

    PPV renewal notices should come out soon. I’ve been on PPV for 3 years now. Cost for renewals will be $380, up from $350 last year.

  110. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 10:26 am

    ST- after watching they way you (briefly) dance at the K-kalls, it was not surprising to see how you became the natural leader of the haka.

    breakfast time

  112. stacyj July 13, 2008 10:35 am

    Good morning!

    nice pictures of the kids at the clinic.

    Re: von Appen years, wasn’t some of the difficulty with the left overs from Wags and then his lack of good recruiting. In the early ’90s, it seemed like the top guys were starting the mainland escape and UH was really struggling to keep those kids home. When vonA came in, he needed to be a great recruiter or else… well, we know what happened.

  113. al July 13, 2008 10:35 am

    some days you wake up to read the paper and there will be good news. today, well, there was sad news. i was rather astonished to read that joe tom, jr had passed away from an apparent heart attack at the age of 52.

    i remember him running around the mckinley hs campus as well as at all the games when his dad joe tom, sr was a p.e. teacher and coach there. then, i saw him play at kamehameha and later coach at castle hs with his dad as his assistant. he was always a great fan and mentor of sports and did much for the game as well as the community.

    the good, they die young.

    rest in peace brother.

  114. FloridaTed July 13, 2008 10:37 am

    LizK (99),

    Well said. That must have been true fun interviewing the old folks. We have an 86 year old neighbor, all she did at first was talk about her medications, but then I slowly nutched her away from that and got her to talk about her old Kentucky days, It is fascinating to here stories of times long gone come to life. She has become a wealth of old folk tales for us and our visits have become real fun.

  116. FloridaTed July 13, 2008 10:52 am


    Life is like a lottery, I think we’re all getting a number at birth and nobody knows when it comes up. That’s why it’s so important, as a famous Tsaiko once said, make plenty memories while you still can, that’s really all we have, all that we can hang on to.

  117. al July 13, 2008 10:59 am

    Mahalo, SteveM!

  119. Stretch July 13, 2008 11:26 am

    Tsaiko Glassware

    For those who are still interested in getting their Tsaiko glassware, we have the following inventory available after the party.

    5 ea 16oz beer/water cups
    15 each 12.5oz wine/water glass

    There is interest in beer mugs and it appears more people want the bigger 34oz mug. Since we have to purchase them in sets of 12, more 34oz beer mugs can be made. I will not make more of the 25oz mugs unless I can get 12 orders.

    For those on the mainland or outerislands, if you want to to order, I will add on the postage to the cost of the glasses.

    Email me at tsaikoparty at yahoo and I will put together a list of what needs to me made.

  120. Butlerdidit July 13, 2008 11:29 am

    Believe it or not, I thought to myself, “that looks like it could be Bobby Curran’s son,” before I even saw the caption.

  121. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc July 13, 2008 11:29 am

    Relay For Life was awesome as usual. We went three different times throughout the late afternoon & evening and came back home for good around 1 am. If you donated to any of the RFLs anywhere in Hawai`i this year, mahalo.

    We redeemed the HI-5 containers and will be sending Stretch a check to Na Koa for $62 – $31 in redemptions (620 containers) and a matching donation from us.

    Great article by Ferd Lewis today about the energy conundrum facing the Athletic Department. If you have connections with companies large enough to be corporate underwriters, then please ask them to step up.

    There’s another definition besides esme & jojo, but it seems to only apply to two people – a blogger and a bff – so no need to add it to the vocabulary list even though it is used on a regular basis by foolks but not on the blog itself.

    Off to work again – no days off for us. However, we’ll probably go do the $1 air-conditioned movie thing this evening at the Restaurant Row theatres. Have a good day everyone.

  122. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc July 13, 2008 11:35 am

  124. Long Time UH Fan July 13, 2008 11:49 am

    An excerpt from a midweek newspaper re:Donovan: The Right Man in Manoa

    For all the creative financing and beating the bushes for donors, the financial success for the athletic department rests simply on the teams’ ability to draw fans and have them return. Stan Sheriff liked to say that fans vote with their wallets and, as strange as it might sound on the surface, the newest person responsible for bringing in those people wants to add some Disney magic to the business of UH athletics. It’s nice to see that his failure to become a member of the Electric Light Parade as an Anaheim teen has not left him bitter.

    “At the end of the day,when you see people leave Disneyland they have created a memory. The kids are tired, everyone is tired, but everyone had a great day. Everywhere you go you don’t see trash, you see people who care. Can we get them done overnight? I’ll be the first to say no.

    “It’s like turning a supertanker. You’ve got a big department with 19 departments and a bunch of personalities, so you start turning the wheel and maybe four, five, seven miles down it starts to turn.

    “Well, I’m sitting in that room turning that wheel, and I have a lot of people helping me,and we’re gonna get people to understand that this is where we are going. They are going to be a part of it, and when we get there everybody will be prouder and happier.”

  125. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 11:59 am

    LTUHF- very nice re: Donovan. Goes with what Papa said about the “people” – the ones who “pay the freight”.
    The team at Manoa made the biggest impact on me just by showing up in solidarity. The Chancellor, the AD, the HC, the Legislator, the Press. Those elements need to be on the same page in order to get the people to buy the paper.

    It was impressive. With unity and the intention to do what is right, we’re talking win-win. imho :mrgreen:

  126. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 12:09 pm

    Howzit gang, up and running again after my 24 hr coma. So I made it out on Friday but got delayed in San Fran for about 2 hrs. Then flew into Travis AFB and got in roughly about 2:30 a.m. Saturday. Thought about sleeping but for some reason my body was wide awake. So instead started driving home to San Diego. Since I was so excited to see the wife and kids and unload the story-telling from the Bash, I arrived home at approximately 7:30 a.m. For those of you whoever drove from there to here it is roughly a 8 hr. drive. Sorry if any HPD or CHP guys are reading this but I was uh haulin arse! Anyway, I’m back in San Diego but still hungover from the Bash 🙂 Good Times…

  127. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 12:14 pm

    ST – If you invite Paula Abdul to the 3rd Anniversary Blog Bash I will take care of all other expenses for her 🙂

  128. FloridaTed July 13, 2008 12:16 pm


    Like I’ve said earlier, there seems to have developed a tangable shift in attitude throughout Hawai’i about sports, but more so for the Warriors. The magical 07 and 08 years, have shown all of us how this team can contribute to the well being of an entire State. Everybody appears to have realized that we CAN be in the big time, but also that it needs all of us to succeed, from corporations to the single fan, sitting in the end zone in the nosebleed section. The Tsaikos have a big hand in this spirit and I see it breaking out all over the Islands and even spread across the Mainland. We will get there and this season will be really special.

  129. duffer July 13, 2008 12:27 pm

    Word from Maui is that Chase Nakamura will be enrolling at Utah in January, thus missing/red shirting this coming school year.

    Jordan Helle’s dad knows and appreciates Doris Sullivan’s help in securing his son’s future educational needs at Occidental. He seemed extremely pleased with his son’s choice of school. Jordan may even get some PT this season.

    Back to lurking! 🙂

  130. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 12:28 pm

    Rich2176- please see #127 and note the appropriate calendar 😉

  131. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 12:34 pm

    FloridaTed- it’s a great time to be alive.
    In truth, Tsai-kos are just the harbingers of change. The lurkers are the real 100th monkeys who will make the changes for a better world.

    What is beautiful is that the lower campus and the Chancellor seem to understand.

    It takes skill to navigate uncharted waters. Skill and faith in the unchanging stars.

  132. SteveM July 13, 2008 12:50 pm

    Good morning afternoon everyone!

    LizKauai — thanks for the #118 post. I was wondering why the hit counter doubled while I was adding a few more photos. Have a loooong way to go yet. Thousands of photos must have been taken–many of which we have not seen yet 🙂 … or might never see 🙁

    Big difference from Blog party 2 when only Cat and I had cameras (mine a cheap disposable). Not many at Blog Party 3 at Murphy’s either except for the HA photographer… say, ST — how come no HA photographer this year? 👿

  133. Garret July 13, 2008 12:55 pm


    Too bad about Chase Nakamura…but I wish him well in every game he plays that is not against UH. Most importantly, I hope that he takes care of business in the classroom.

  134. stacyj July 13, 2008 12:58 pm

    Just read Ferd’s article about travel expenses. Then, went to Hawaiianair dot com. My word. A round trip to Vegas in August is going for just under $850 per person.

    I’ve asked this before. If an airline is a sponsor, what perks does UH get? Obviously, it isn’t a great deal on the charter flights.

  135. stacyj July 13, 2008 1:01 pm

    Hey, we should have a $1 donation on our state taxes like the other one on there (for the library I think…I dunno). But, make one to support UH athletics.

    Okay, maybe not a great idea but…gotta think outside the box.

  136. Garret July 13, 2008 1:01 pm


    I am sorry that I did not add you to the list of people I thanked for your hard work in putting up photos of the Bash and other events. I’ve expressed my thanks to you before, but forgot this time when I was rushing through my posts.

    Note to losthawaiian and others…SteveM listed the Calf Call on Wednesday on his calender of Tsaiko events, so all the information you need is there.

  137. Garret July 13, 2008 1:07 pm


    We need a Bay Area chapter President, just like how Ronnie heads the Lo Cal chapter. I would nominate brew808, but how would anyone find him?

    Anyone in the Bay Area lurking here who would be interested in a gathering (No Cal Calf Call? Nor Cal Calf Call? Bay Area Cattle Call?), please let us know on the blog. There may be something set up in August if there is interest.

  138. Kevin July 13, 2008 1:27 pm

    My 10 year old had fun at the camp this weekend. Despite the large amount of participants, I thought everything was run rather smoothly and ALL the coaches were enthusiastic and drills well done. My kid enjoyed the tackling dummy drill where he hit the bag hard and got a high five from Coach Mack and going deep to catch bombs from Rolo. All the campers got Under Armour Dri-Fit Hawaii Football shirts. Very sweet.

    Garret — brew808 lives in the bay area? 😳

    Geee…first homey’s photo on the blog and now this. OK, if that’s officially over, then, YES — buddy brew808 is the logical and leading candidate for No-Cal Tsai-ko Chapter President in my opinion. Followed by 808chef, who I somehow didn’t meet at the Blog Party… maybe he knew that was what I wanted to ask him about…? 🙂

  140. d1shima July 13, 2008 1:52 pm

    Great Afternoon All.

    Excellent result at the Football Camp for da Young’uns.
    Good to see all the Alums and former staff around and pitching in.

    That is great that UA stepped up with those shirts!

    I am dreading to see the airfares for the UNLV game. Bookings should be available around mid-October.
    Start saving now folks!

  141. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 1:52 pm

    Keven- thanks for sharing about the camp. Besides the gifts – how cool for a young man to be able to say that he was catching passes from Rolo when he was 10!

    SteveM and Garret- I was going to say… you don’t find brew808, he finds you!
    Still a mystery to me – and I’ve met him 😆

  142. d1shima July 13, 2008 2:00 pm


    re: your #22

    If that happens, the entire football season may go out the window along with a lot of other things in the nation as a whole.
    I have stated before that I don’t want to see political commentary on this blog, but since it relates to Warrior football, in that sense; everyone has to really take a look at how they vote this year. That assumes that it even takes that long before things unravel in that region.

  143. brew808 July 13, 2008 2:07 pm

    R U sure brew808 even exists?

  144. MeiLing July 13, 2008 3:19 pm

    I could have sworn that brew808 has identified himself on this blog as being from the Bay Area…of course, where in the Bay Area is anyone’s guess. Would 808chef or anyone else in the Bay Area be interested in a Bay Area chapter?

    I’m bringing this up now partially because it is a slow time on the blog and partially because now that my house guests are gone I can look forward to my family’s next big event: a trip to the Bay Area in early August. There will be some other events during the week-long trip (like my girls being the flower girls at a wedding that is not blog-related), but I’d love to see if there was interest in a general Bay Area gathering.

  146. Bulla July 13, 2008 4:27 pm

    what a lazy Sunday. Fed the cats. Swept the patio.

    Got the a/c going.

    Watched Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, circa 1989. Wow, Harrison Ford hasn’t changed that much over the years. Still ruggedly handsome.

  148. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 4:35 pm

    My memory is failing. Did the blog party really happen? Seems like such a long time ago.

    I feel the same way about our trips to Japan on June 12 and to Kauai on June 28. Seems like such a long time ago.

  149. tom mui July 13, 2008 4:38 pm

    Stacyj: re your #135, it sounds like a good idea. Of course it will be a needed couple of bucks but you have to also consider that the $1 coming from those who file Hawaii taxes will amount to a little less than say $750,000.

    Of course 750 here, 750 there, and afterwhile you are talking real money!!!

  150. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 4:39 pm

    We should turn our attention to the CC and golf challenge for Rainbow Cliff next month. Kekoa will have the details later.

    My uncle told me to stop scooping the ball with my golf club and just make contact straight on. I have been scooping in order to lift the ball above the ground, but have not been successful. The ball barely flies a foot above ground and does not go very far.

    At Liz’s golf tournament, I sometimes hit the air or the ground, but not the ball!

  151. jojo ® July 13, 2008 4:47 pm

  153. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 4:53 pm

    Leaving for dinner at Roy’s Waikiki in less than an hour. Not very hungry as I ate a jumbo jack, fries, and 2 ice cream cones.

    Did I previously say I wanted a new slim body? That seems like a long time ago, also. haha

  154. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 4:58 pm

  161. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 5:11 pm

    people who SAY they are coming, but don’t show up — they did a JOJO.

    btw, did jojo actually sign up for the party and pay the admission fee?

  162. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 5:13 pm

    Roys, eh? Wow. We are having patele for dinner. Some guy in a pickup truck was selling patele so he could attend a family reunion on the Big Island.

  163. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 5:13 pm

    Liz, no worry, we ALL have those times when we are knock out gorgeous, and then those times when we feel we should crawl into a hole and never come out.

    Actually, you always have a radiant smile. Hubby thinks you have good teeth. He had to crown all of his for dental reasons, not for vanity.

  164. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 5:16 pm

    bulla, you read right — memory LOSS. me getting old.

    Liz, hubby’s boss gave us a $100 gift card to Roy’s. We didn’t care much for their lunch menu — had eggs — so we are curious about dinner.

  165. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 5:24 pm

    wow- no more complaints about your hubby’s boss, eh? Two fine dinners in two months. 😉

  166. gigi-hawaii © July 13, 2008 5:30 pm

    his boss is so wealthy, $100 is nothing to him.

  167. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 5:43 pm

    wealth is not really about money, methinks.

    He could have chosen NOT to give your hubby the GC.

    Happy Birthday to Myki!!

    It looked like she already celebrated her birthday on Thursday night with the Bulla Bombers!!!

  173. Stretch July 13, 2008 6:06 pm

    For those who are still interested in getting their Tsaiko glassware, we have the following inventory available after the party.

    5 ea 16oz beer/water cups
    15 each 12.5oz wine/water glass

    There is interest in beer mugs and it appears more people want the bigger 34oz mug. Since we have to purchase them in sets of 12, more 34oz beer mugs can be made. I will not make more of the 25oz mugs unless I can get 12 orders.

    For those on the mainland or outerislands, if you want to to order, I will add on the postage to the cost of the glasses.

    Email me at tsaikoparty at yahoo and I will put together a list of what needs to me made.

  174. Jason July 13, 2008 6:16 pm

    Happy birthday myki!

    Howzit Tsaikos!
    Sheez, this lurking job takes so much time, with all the videos and pic’s, not to mention the posts…but I finally got through it all! Well, not all, haven’t seen SJMacro’s videos and SteveM’s photos yet. So much to lurk, so little time!
    LizKauai — mahalo for all your hard work in putting up the videos! As someone else (Darren?) said, it was the next best thing to being there, and really brought the spirit and sense of community to those of us who wanted to, but couldn’t, be there in person. Thank you!!
    Gotta get off the computer now, give it (and my okole) a rest. Will check in again tomorrow afternoon. A hui hou kakou!

  179. brew808 July 13, 2008 6:34 pm

    I love the hair on the boy in the orange/red tank top! It’s almost the same design as on LP’s arm! Cool!

    The only thing troubling with the photos is the lack of more UH shirts and jerseys on the kids! (IMHO) I hope Mack and guys reach out to the kids and start the new trend! Is there anyway to have t-shirts as part of the Speed & Quickness program?

  180. Garret July 13, 2008 6:38 pm

  184. Garret July 13, 2008 6:46 pm

    Regarding the discussion regarding the high travel costs and how it affects UH, there is *one* airline that does not suffer from the high gas prices. Due to some fancy hedge price technique, Southwest pays something like $2 per gallon for fuel while the other airlines pay well over $4 per gallon…and if oil prices go up the other airlines will pay more while Southwest will stay with their low price until 2011!

    This is NOT a free play link because it directly affects UH. Southwest is planning to take advantage of their edge in fuel costs by expanding, even to Hawaii! Southwest can offer low prices to Hawaii because of their low fuel costs, which could really change the travel market to Hawaii–the other airlines could either match the prices (and hope that they do not go bankrupt with all the money they will lose) or charge more and see if anyone flies on them.

    Kelly, 53, has an enormous advantage over his peers: about $2 billion that Southwest will gain this year from complex financial hedges he put in place to offset rising fuel costs. As oil prices hit the stratosphere, Southwest’s bounty continues to grow while airlines without similar hedges buckle under the financial strain.

    “That $2 billion allows (Southwest) to keep fares lower than they otherwise would,” said Vaughn Cordle, CEO and chief analyst of AirlineForecasts LLC, a Virginia-based market research firm. “That’s a strategic decision that forces other airlines to match fares and lose significant amounts of money, or retreat. So Southwest wins the war of attrition.”

    Next up: Mexico, the Caribbean and Hawaii, not necessarily in that order, through code-sharing pacts to be rolled out next year and possibly into 2010.

    Nice to read about this Samoan festival in San Diego.

    When North County Samoans gather for their annual heritage festival, it’s always filled with foods and music from the South Pacific.

    But more than anything else, organizers of the weeklong cultural celebration that ended yesterday hope the events help Samoan-American youths grow up with respect for the past and a vision for the future.

    “We have to teach our kids to live right,” said Sam Papaliimarino of Oceanside, who attended the festival for first time with his son Jack, 3. “I want my son to know he’s Samoan and Hawaiian. . . . The culture of the islands is that the dad and mom are the example.”

    The cultural celebration lasted all week, with faith-based services, musical performances, athletic competitions and various contests. Organizers estimated that 500 people participated.

    “The point is just to let our youth know that there are things that will help them in the future,” said Casey Malauulu, one of the event planners. “I have seen kids go down the wrong road, and it’s not easy to recover.”

  186. Garret July 13, 2008 6:48 pm

    Baseball player who was drafted by the San Francisco Giants in 2003 was recently traded for 10 baseball bats!

  187. MeiLing July 13, 2008 6:57 pm

    Happy birthday, myki!!!

    chawan_cut, did you have any Lego pieces at the Pearl City display?

    I thot the leopard pattern hair on that little boy was cute.

    I hope Southwest is able to provide decent airfares btwn HNL & the mainland. I love flying SWA and would support them. I love Hawaiian Airlines, too.

  188. Jason July 13, 2008 6:58 pm

    Eh, congrats to Mike Tsai for winning a 1st place award in the 2007 Excellence in Journalism Awards of the Hawai’i Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.

    Feature writing/long form: Michael Tsai, The Honolulu Advertiser, “Their Spirit Carries Them.”

    Also a finalist was Stephen Tsai, for “They Thought I Was Dead Until …” So, is there a little sibling rivalry there? 😉

  189. stacyj July 13, 2008 7:05 pm

    Happy birthday Myki..

    Esme and out!

  190. jojo ® July 13, 2008 7:07 pm

    Happy Birthday Myki! Did I miss your party too?

  191. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 7:08 pm

    Jason- so that comment by ST about Mike was kinda prophetic, then?
    Cool. Very cool.

  192. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 7:09 pm

    Hi jojo!

  193. Barry Markowitz July 13, 2008 7:23 pm

    Did I really see A-Joe off to my right during the Ha’a at the UH Speed & Quickness Football Camp today? The guy had that Nuveau Bulla look.

  194. jojo ® July 13, 2008 7:24 pm

    HI Liz! We watched that movie about Taylor Camp. I felt a bit sad at the end of it.

  195. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 7:29 pm

    Happy Birthday Aunty myki

  196. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 7:34 pm

    Good to see bruddah Leonard Peters again. Very likeable guy, good with the kids, always willing to help out. Wish the best for him this season with the Bears and hope to see him on the field knocking heads. Hard to picture a nice guy like him wreaking havoc and killing people on the field…

  197. al July 13, 2008 7:38 pm

    happy birthday myki!

    i hope gerry got you down for a nice dinner.

    Happy Birthday Myki! …from the A-House Ohana…

    I’m glad you won the Inoke Funaki autographed football…a nice birthday gift presented early. Have a great day!

  200. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 7:56 pm

    OK, I’m glad we’re all here again after the Tizer threw up the barrier this afternoon.
    And I’m glad DPK is among us. I was worried about him.

  201. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 7:59 pm

    No rivalry.
    My brother is our paper’s best writer.
    We haven’t had an argument with each other since 1986.

  202. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 8:13 pm

    jojo- I haven’t seen the movie. Taylor Camp was not my cuppa tea and I avoided it- nudity and drugs was not my idea of a virtuous life. But our former mayor seemed to like it and her hubby made the movie.
    I had a few friends who tried it but didn’t stay long.

    ST – so what was the last argument about in 86?? and who was right?? who won??

  205. brew808 July 13, 2008 8:16 pm

    If LizK went to “Taylor Camp”, then would we have to call her “Liz Taylor”? 😀

  209. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 8:39 pm

    Stretch- did you trade you Treo in for an iPhone?

  210. jm2375 July 13, 2008 8:42 pm

    ST – was the blog server down? I was just able to get on about 20 min ago and finally caught up. I wasn’t able to get on since this morning. I felt kinda lost without my Tsai-ko fix.

    Happy B-day myki!!

    Great to see the huge turnout at the camp. I bet if this was on the Mainland, the kids would have turned away. That being said, I hope this doesn’t happen with the next camp for the older kids.

    Do I really have to go to work tomorrow? Have a great night guys.

    Back to lurking…

  211. Stretch July 13, 2008 8:43 pm

    liz – no, i have another verizon phone, the xv6800. Either the battery is no good or the phone charging system is broke. I have no phone today but at least it’s Sunday. If it was a work day, it would be no good. Also, the battery doesn’t last too long, not even a full day. Need to get an extended battery. I should have stuck to the Treo.

  212. BG July 13, 2008 8:45 pm

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MYKI !!! You’re a real WINNAH !!! 😀

  213. jm2375 July 13, 2008 8:55 pm

    BTW – I sent an email to the online guys about now being able to get to ANY of the blogs and NEVER received a reply. Guess they don’t work on Sundays. 😡

    Guess I missed chawan_cut yesterday at Pearlridge. Stopped by for a minute, but kid wanted to get to the AT&T store. At least the nice young salesperson talked her into a much cheaper phone. 😀

  214. jm2375 July 13, 2008 8:56 pm

    oops. now = not

  215. jojo ® July 13, 2008 8:58 pm

    Liz – The movie failed to mention all the proceedings leading up to the eviction. Which is why I felt like the movie was needing something more. I felt sad because I didn’t get a good explanation. 🙁

  216. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 9:03 pm

    jojo- hmmm… yeah… I don’t remember all the details but the Dept. of Health probably was involved – and concerned about sanitation and all that kinda stuff.

    jm2375 – one word: GoPhone. For less than $15 at WalMart, it is a winnah for da keeds!

    Stretch- I’m hoping we get some lurkers to come out on Tuesday 😉

  217. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 9:11 pm

  225. jm2375 July 13, 2008 9:21 pm

    Liz – da kid wants everything and is running me broke with all the texting. Plus I want to get internet capability too, so our bill will now be double, at least for the time being, till I figure out if I really need internet. I just can’t wait – I get major dead spots with T-Mobile – house (too close to mountain), office (too much concrete, no windows). Plus she might actually answer me if I text instead of call!!

  226. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 9:26 pm

    Pauoa Boy- LoCal details are here:

    jm2375 – I have ATT family plan with my 2 sons at home. One is careful and one is hard on equipment. Guess which one has the GoPhone! You can use these cheap phones with your plans- not only the pay-as-you-go. Just pop in your sim card from the expensive phone and off you go!

  227. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 9:28 pm

    jm2375- I hear you on the texting. I text my youngest when I REALLY need to communicate with him. He has the text tone set to the “no can hear if you over 40” sound and the teachers are clueless :mrgreen:

  228. jm2375 July 13, 2008 9:30 pm

    Liz – we’ll see how it goes. If she breaks her phone, she’s gonna get the cheap one. Part of this is trying to keep up with her friends and since she goes to private school…

  229. Garret July 13, 2008 9:32 pm

    Free play link time. Please ignore my next 5 posts if you do not want the off-topic stuff. This article is a little old, but I couldn’t help but think of the Tsaikos when I read it!

    A law in Japan requires all companies and local governments to measure the waistline of Japanese people between the ages of 40 and 74 as part of their annual checkups. The waistline thresholds are set at 33.5 inches for men and 35.4 inches for women, and those over the limit have to get dieting guidance and then re-education if they do not slim down. This type of rule could NOT happen in the US!

  231. Garret July 13, 2008 9:34 pm

    Romanian village re-elected their incumbent mayor, choosing him over his opponent despite the fact that the mayor had died! I cannot believe the quote that one voter actually explained his vote for the dead mayor: “I know he died, but I don’t want change.”

    Wasabi Tsai-kos!!! Just wanted to say what’s up to everybody and express my appreciation and gratitude to you all for the overwhelmingly warm gestures I was shown at the Tsai-kos 2nd annual blog party. It was truly an experience I’ll remember to be with 110% UH craved fans. To the Tsai-kos who attended the after party, I was really blown away from the talent I heard that night. All in all, you guys are incredibly an inspirational group of people who have an awesome thing going on here and I’m glad to have witnessed it and actually be apart of it.

  242. myki1 July 13, 2008 9:44 pm

    Many thanks to all for the birthday greetings! I’ve never, ever had so many from near and far away. All were greatly appreciated. I was secretly hoping that the day would pass and I would still be the same age but I guess that was not too realistic. So here I am, another year older and deeper in debt!!
    I really feft like Thursday was sort of an early celebration at the bash. No better way to party than with all the Tsai-kos. The night was topped off with winning the football. Thanks Stephen for getting the autograph! It was even more special ‘cuz he came over to see what we were doing that afternoon while we were setting up and so I got to see him signing it and thought that it would be a great prize. Didn’t think I had a chance ‘cuz I don’t usually win anything. Maybe things are looking up for this year.
    I don’t usually ramble on like this but thank you again. Stephen , please wish your daughter a happy birthday for me. Enjoy your outing tomorrow and make more wonderful memories. Much aloha, myki

  243. al July 13, 2008 9:45 pm

    Yippy, I just found out my niece had a baby girl! Another good one born in July. Happy birthday all the July born Tsaikos. Although, I don’t think my new niece will be a tsaiko, her grandpa played for Boise (via Kamehameha).

  249. stacyj July 13, 2008 9:56 pm

  251. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 9:59 pm

    I have the same problem with my bro-in-law who instead of Boise is a BYU kitty cat guy…grrrr!!!

    PB, much respect. Thank you is all I can say!

    Did you do a Bio? If so, I musta missed it.

  257. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 10:05 pm

    Uncle Kekoa – I gave him you guys numbah for keep in contact, no let him BS you either, he can jam shmall kine, and my oddah bruddah can make drumline akshon. They only ackin if they say no can… Only wish I had the musical talent too but I got skipped and got the athletic genes instead haha…

  258. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 10:07 pm

    No, no bio yet… I will once I get the green light from the Tsai-master. Planny Bio’s need to be written actually, A-Sports had a really good one the other day…

    99club ~ Regarding your earlier post…My son returned from Korea after their 2 week tng gig. He packed and shipped his box of goodies. One of his staff members packed an extra suitcase. The civilian charter they flew (on orders) charged this guy nearly $200 for excess baggage based on weight. Was it because they were all Majors, and it was hate Majors day?

  267. Jason July 13, 2008 10:15 pm

    I just LOVED what they did with the blog. NOT.

  268. Unkanesson July 13, 2008 10:16 pm

    Hi folks,
    Just stopped in for one last taste of blog before hiamoe.

    Garrett – #231 – Reminds me of a quote attributed to Winston Churchill:
    “The greatest argument against democracy is a 5 minute conversation with the average voter.” Something like that…

    ‘Night all.

  269. stacyj July 13, 2008 10:17 pm

    Thanks Liz. They named the baby after my niece’s sister who passed away this Spring in a car accident. (just 22 years old and was so excited to become an aunty). Did you ever finish that quilt for your Lilu? I never saw finish pictures.

    How come I am feeling like I’m pulling a gigi…talking about personal stuff and totally off topic.

  270. stacyj July 13, 2008 10:17 pm

    Thanks techies…my font is now larger than life itself!

  271. Jason July 13, 2008 10:17 pm

    First, the blue sea of death. Then, everything shrank. Then, everything turned tiny and white. Now, it’s varying between the three.

  272. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 10:18 pm

    midori7 – thanks yups let mom know he finally pop the cherry 🙂 plus I think he was still wanting the digits from her bwahaha j/k Anyway, was nice seeing you at the Bash, nice knowing I have an extended family of hotties 🙂

  273. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc July 13, 2008 10:19 pm

    I just posted something in response to StacyJ and Tom Mui’s earlier comments – and it never showed up.

    Wonder why? Will write it again off-line and then copy and paste it here

  274. stacyj July 13, 2008 10:20 pm

    I thought HA techies don’t work on Sundays. Now I know what y’all were talking about when you mentioned the sea of blue. Did I jinx us by mentioning Boise?

  275. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 10:21 pm

    stacyj – are you wearing a muu muu too? Aiyah… 🙂

  276. stacyj July 13, 2008 10:22 pm

    PB, no bio for me. I’m a little fish in this sea of Tsaikos. There are more worthy folks of bio sharing.

  277. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 10:23 pm

    You may have mentioned Boise but I think we’re just getting SMU’d for some reason…

  278. Jason July 13, 2008 10:24 pm

    WassupDoc: That happens to you way too much. Copy the text that you’re typing every so often, and again before you hit Submit.

    Wow, the whole Web site is going nuts.

  279. myki1 July 13, 2008 10:24 pm

    Midori, I forget the DVD of the Miami of Ohio game the night of the bash. Will bring it at the next gathering. Sorry.

  280. stacyj July 13, 2008 10:24 pm

    PB, be nice. How many 30 somethings do you know that wear gigi muumuu??? Not to mention, my kids would have a field day hiding underneath…no thanks!

  281. stacyj July 13, 2008 10:26 pm

    speaking of gigi, where is she? I know hubby needs to be in bed by what 8:00. she gotta be home from Roys by now.

  282. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 10:26 pm

    stacyj – No worries, I’m still a small fish too, trying to at least work my way into becoming a full size Ahi, I think maybe with a few more CC’s I’ll be there.

  283. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 10:29 pm

    stacyj – wow you young too, hmm…good to know.

  284. JaM July 13, 2008 10:30 pm

    Good evening everybody!!

    Happy Birthday to you myki1! (It is my older daughter’s birthday today too!)

    Welcome icyul8..So are you now a Warrior fan? great performances at Genji..sorry I could not stay any later…wanted to, but suffered for it the next 2 days.

    Hi Garret!

    Congrats to M. Tsai!

    Next weekend will be the big boys football camp. Anyone stopping in and what time? Will be there at the track meet (Aloha State Games). Will try to run over there again.

    Go Warriors!

  285. stacyj July 13, 2008 10:31 pm

    PB, just went to your myspace to send friend request. d/k last name or email. But, beautiful family. Your kids are adorable.

  286. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 10:32 pm

    JaM – Uh he was cheering for Georgia in the Sugar Bowl so what does that tell you…

  287. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 10:34 pm

    I think the techs did an outstanding job.
    They always do.
    Now they have to stop.
    Stop tinkering. It’s fine.
    Go work on Midlife Crisis or Scene It.

  288. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 10:35 pm

    Oye, sorry last name rhymes with thing except put a c instead of the t. I know you’re blonde but hope you unnerstood that nah nah j/k…

  289. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc July 13, 2008 10:35 pm

    STACYJ AND TOM MUI: On January 29, 2008, HB 3025 – RELATING TO INCOME TAX CHECK-OFF was heard by the House Higher Education Committee. It would have provided an income tax check-off for an unspecified amount to be divided as follows: 50% equally to the 10 UH campuses; 25% to UH Manoa and 25% to UH Hilo Athletic Departments. The idea behind this was to give something to all campuses so that all legislators would have something to take credit for rather than just focusing on Manoa and athletics.

    The Committee deferred the measure on January 31. Nothing further happened.

    If there is any interest in getting a income tax check-off bill next session, building support needs to start much earlier than January 14 which is when the idea was first brought up. Tax and money issues are always difficult to get even a hearing, let alone passage, but sometimes it take several sessions for something to happen.

  290. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 10:36 pm

    ST – Never knew you were into Paula Abdul, wassup with that?

  291. JaM July 13, 2008 10:37 pm

    What’s wrong..

    Post 284 came on but I get kicked out then internet is disconnected?

  292. JaM July 13, 2008 10:40 pm

    PB: I heard him loud and clear at Genji’s but can try yeah!?

  293. stacyj July 13, 2008 10:41 pm

    PB, had to read it twice. Scary! I use being blonde to my advantage…tease all you like but as my husband says, I go for the jugular, so consider yourself forewarned. j/k. K, I going back to make request.

    Wassup Doc, thanks for the info. I personally would love to see something like this happen. If the $$ goes to a good cause that the UH could use wisely, I can check off a box for $1.

  294. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc July 13, 2008 10:41 pm



  295. stacyj July 13, 2008 10:42 pm

    isn’t there a Paula Abdul impersonator at that Waikiki show? Hum….

  296. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 10:43 pm

    Pauoa Boy:
    She had me at Straight Up.
    Anyway, I thought her first album was really good.
    Now my kids love it.
    And she’s a great choreographer.

  297. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 10:45 pm

    Re: Paula Abdul impersonator.
    That’s just wrong. She’s not at the Barbra Streisand/Cher mockery stage.

  298. stacyj July 13, 2008 10:46 pm

    W-Doc, on PC I think you can ctrl + to increase text and ctrl – to decrease.

  299. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 10:46 pm

    It’s weird but my font is OK.

  300. stacyj July 13, 2008 10:47 pm

    From one reality show fan to another, ST, did you watch her show? Be honest, we’re all family and friends here. lol.

  301. JaM July 13, 2008 10:47 pm

    Well Good Night Folks!

  302. stacyj July 13, 2008 10:48 pm

    ST, this is for you

  303. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 10:53 pm

    ST – I only ask cause if you ask ICYUL8, Paula has been my girl too ever since she sang Rush, Rush, hurry, hurry lover, come to me. I thought to myself dang girl where are you and have been looking for her ever since…Like I said if she’s a special guest for the 3rd anniversary I got the rest of her expenses covered.

  304. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 10:55 pm

    JaM – good night, nah no worries he will always be a Warrior Fan unless he would have been kicked out of the house 🙂

  305. stacyj July 13, 2008 10:56 pm

    Eeeeasy Abdul boys..

  306. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 10:56 pm

    stacyj – I just teasing, my oddah half is blonde too 🙂

  307. stacyj July 13, 2008 10:58 pm

    Better late than never.

    And, I haven’t seen a lot of chit chats lately on the blog…

  308. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 10:58 pm

    Funny too, I think that Keanu Reeves was in that Rush video, ever since then I’ve wanted to kick his arse, haha j/k…

  309. stacyj July 13, 2008 11:00 pm

    Saw that. request sent. I see you got Aunty Liz as one friend. And, one Ke’alohilani. Never used to see that name before. Now, I started seeing it all over the place.

  310. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 11:01 pm

    Sorry get carried away sometimes start thinking of Paula and then you putting those kind videos on here, whew blood pressure high, haha.

    For reals though football season need to start already, Feenin like Jodeci for some football.

  311. stacyj July 13, 2008 11:02 pm

    Pauoa, easy…my husband is a Reeves. Got some UH players that are Reeves. No mess with the family. Nah!

  312. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 11:03 pm

    Yups, get more Tsai-ko’s I gotta add but been too lazy to look em up.

  313. stacyj July 13, 2008 11:04 pm

  314. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 11:05 pm

    Pssh…you kidding me, ahh lose money haha, as long as they not named Keanu and no pull some Matrix akshon on me it’s all G.

  315. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 11:06 pm

  316. stacyj July 13, 2008 11:06 pm

    Did we scare everyone else away?

  317. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 11:07 pm

    Pauoa Boy:
    Then you’d better make nice-nice to Rich2176.
    He works with Paula.

  318. al July 13, 2008 11:07 pm

    hey…chawan cut

    i saw you on the uh/new mex st bball replay last night.
    your friend has more of a chawan cut than you do.

  319. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 11:09 pm

    Really hmm…hope he shows up Wednesday at the CC, may have to mention we need her as our special guest for the 3rd annual…

  320. stacyj July 13, 2008 11:10 pm

    Haha, my sister in law’s son is Keanu. There are a couple of Keanus in the Reeves ohana. The actor never comes to family stuff but he is starting to keep in touch with some of his Reeves cousins.

  321. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 11:11 pm

    al – does those replays only come on back home or is there some online site with streaming video of past games can watch. I know during the season there is a site you can pay to have streaming video of current games can watch, just wondering…

  322. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 11:13 pm

    OK, I hunted down a photo of the lovely myki.

  323. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 11:14 pm

    Well das okay I guess just remember him in that Rush video with my girl and ever since then… ahh nevermind 🙂

  324. Stephen Tsai July 13, 2008 11:14 pm

    That’s right, the LoCal group is getting together.

  325. stacyj July 13, 2008 11:15 pm

    Howzit Gangeez!
    I haven’t been able to log on the WB since yesterday, but thanks to Scott of the Tech Squad, I’m back!

    Happy Birfday, Myki! 🙂

    I understand that my post yesterday, stating that I was going to the beach,was possibly upsetting to some here who were overcome by the visuals. I say, next time don’t think about it if you aren’t strong enough to go there! 😆 Besides, we went early in the day to a spot so remote and secluded that WE coudn’t even see me. A couple of sharks came by and asked if I was the beached whale carcass; I sent them off to Kahuku a few miles up the coast from us.;)

  327. stacyj July 13, 2008 11:16 pm

    Oh, one more thing…ST, does this mean you’re getting ready to post something new. I’ll definitely lurk when done.

  328. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 11:17 pm

    I huess the techies are messing with the cascading style sheets again. Now our smileys are not turning into icons.
    No comment til they are done.

  329. SteveM July 13, 2008 11:19 pm

    Good photo of myki and good cropping, ST!

  330. al July 13, 2008 11:21 pm

    dpk….always good to have a sense of humor.

    sometimes we take things too seriously when things weren’t supposed to be so serious. its okay, though. in the end what is right will soon be discovered.

  331. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 11:22 pm

    stacyj – neva au’au yet ho must’ve been you den all hauna making the room all pilau haha nah, nah onleh playing ah Reeves, anyway, gotta hele too late already, catch you guys manyanaz…

  332. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 13, 2008 11:29 pm

    Hi, DPK!
    yep- they’re still working…
    icons flashed back and then off and now some pix are missing.

    staceyj- I haven’t finished the quilt yet. Daughter sent it back to me before they left for Portugal but I have been very busy lately. I’ll get it done to take back there for the OSU game.

    Cool about the Reeves connection. I like Keanu – he reminds me of my #1 son. I especially liked the movie he made near my hometown- Lake Geneva. I used to go to Yerkes Observatory for field trips.

    Nitey nite all!

    Oh- Pauoa Boy- Rich2176 is a neat guy. His wife is ST’s classmate.

  333. Da Punchbowl Kid July 13, 2008 11:29 pm

    ok- icons are back.

    I forget who I was talking to about the movie MASH. He said JoBeth Williams was in it but it was Jo Ann Pflug.

    OK Now I can sleep.

    Sweet Dreams!

  339. al July 13, 2008 11:45 pm

    btw….gigi was so worried that she would lose her seat at the bash that i don’t think she even got up at all.

    little did she know that another hundred chairs were stacked up in the back.

  340. Pauoa Boy July 13, 2008 11:45 pm

    Looking forward to meeting Uncle Rich just hope he no think my request for Paula is too much.

    stacyj – easeh tigah before I pull Matrix akshon on you 🙂

    Hey Pauoa Boy,

    Remember we were talking about Artest to the lakers 4 odom? Rumors are heating up. Seems like the lakers may not want Kenny Thomas in the trade. BTW UR hard core for coming to the party from the mainland. Thats awesome.

  345. SteveM July 14, 2008 12:05 am

    Blog Techie guys — the site is fine if entered the first time through the HA home page, On a refresh/reload, the stylesheet falls to unko again… small font and ALL text is centered. Was working OK until around 2330…

    Thanks for the equality, techies…

    The parent company of gigi-favorite Beck’s beer just bought Anheuser-Busch, the parent company of Budweiser. From what I understand InBev will try to sell SeaWorld (owned by Anheuser-Busch) since they do not want to run a theme park…I wonder who will buy it.

  370. Garret July 14, 2008 4:40 am

    Current and former BSU players just had a charity softball game, which I think is a great idea. Ryan Clady (I’m glad he’s not with BSU anymore) was actually ejected from the charity game.

    Clady was tossed from the game by the umpire after arguing a close call at first base. Speedy receiver Austin Pettis beat out the throw to first and Clady came out of the dugout bumping the ump and trying to pull first base out of the ground.

  371. bighilofan2 July 14, 2008 4:43 am

    wuz readin da odda paypah this a.m., about the SB$. I feel Virginia deserves our full support and backing on this one. One the one side, had the stuff heads, alwayz say no can no can. On the other, she had JJ and crew, and HF meelymoutjin. Da bottom line is: she chose us. Cannot go back to da past, do tings again. She knowz get us, and we supporting JD, and she’s on our bandwagon.

    There is no such thing as perfect. There is such a thing as a good heart, a positive vibe, and working hard to kick their a$$e$ on behalf of Warrior Nation.

    Nuff said.

  378. Ronnie July 14, 2008 5:42 am

    I just saw a blog posting on that “Colt Brennan and the Redskins have agreed to terms; details and other stuff to follow.”

    Yee Haw for Colt!!!!

    Here’s the story from the Washington Redskins site:

  381. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 14, 2008 5:52 am

    Yea, Colt!

    Mahalo, Ronnie!

  382. Stretch July 14, 2008 6:06 am

    Good Morning Tsaikos!!

    Happy Birthday Allie!! Thanks for your hard work (with your bro and sis) at the blog party checking everyone in.

  383. jm2375 July 14, 2008 6:17 am

    Good morning everybody!

    Happy B-day to Allie Tsai!

    Get well soon RC. I’ve missed your thoughtful insights here.

    Yea Colt! Hail to the Redskins! Hail Victory! Braves on the warpath! Fight for old DC!

    I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who couldn’t log on for most of yesterday. j/k I felt so lost without my Tsai-ko fix. I actually couldn’t get into ANY blog yesterday. Now gotta go back and read Kelli’s blog.

    Off to work. See you laterz. To quote Liz – hiho.

  384. Loa July 14, 2008 6:18 am

    LizK – thanks for the vids

  385. U2B Baller July 14, 2008 6:22 am

    Coach Mac,

    What a great success my son and I enjoyed the two days!!! It was great to meet you . I believe with you walking around and meeting everyone and making them feel welcome will take this program along way and by having camps like this you’re planting the seed early in our youth to make them want to be a WARRIOR!!!!!

    My warmest mahalos to you and your staff for a great weekend for my son and the rest of my family!!!!!!!! Can’t wait for the next one.

  386. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 14, 2008 6:26 am

    Hi Loa!

    U2Baller- AWESOME! All the best to you and your son – be happy and healthy 😆

  387. Loa July 14, 2008 6:44 am

    good morning Liz – thanks for pics too, i just had a chance to watch the slideshow, choke smiles

  388. d1shima July 14, 2008 6:57 am

    Great Morning All.

    Happy Birthday Allie!

    U2B Baller,
    Good to hear about your family’s experience at the football camp. Coach Mac sure can work a crowd, eh?

    Have a great day erryboddy. Gonna be anoddah hot one!


  389. d1shima July 14, 2008 6:58 am

    Almost forgot.

    Good thoughts for Rainbow Cliff…

  390. Bulla July 14, 2008 7:06 am

    good morning to all,

    good thoughts for rainbow cliff..

    happy belated bday to myki, all of 29 and holding…..

    dpk, glad you made it to the beach, hope you had fun. i was incognito all day with church and meetings, sorry i didn’t get back to you. however, i did leave a voice mail for you regarding the missing earrings, just wondering if you guys found them.

    last time i went to the beach, these haole guys in zodiac boats kept patrolling the water…….i thought they were yelling German quotes…..something like ‘…..greenpeace….’ i didn’t understand that one at all.

  391. Bulla July 14, 2008 7:23 am

    hey d1,

    hope you’re feeling better; no fun being sick.

    happy belated bday to allie

  392. Stretch July 14, 2008 7:25 am

    This is the same news that was already reported by Ronnie but found it very interesting that ESPN would put it as one of their headlines. Never seen a 6th round pick get that kind of coverage.

  393. jm2375 July 14, 2008 7:28 am

    Liz – spent yesterday morning watching the vids. Great job!

    btw – the techies are now fooling w/other blogs. Da white space is really huge and the blue border is minimal.

    Have fun today ST. :mrgreen:

  394. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 14, 2008 7:28 am

    Perhaps we shall hear about Tuioti today. ❓

  396. tom mui July 14, 2008 7:44 am

    It may not be billions of $$$ for Colt, but it is a paycheck.

    If he proves to be a success as I know he will be, the contract will be renegotiated!

  397. koakane™ July 14, 2008 7:46 am

    haha Koakane, that’s funny! did Homey see his pic in the WB?

  400. gigi-hawaii © July 14, 2008 7:51 am

    I am happy for Colt. $1.8 million for a 6th round pick is not bad at all. Hope he does become #3 QB.

  401. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 14, 2008 7:53 am

    gigi- xs-homey musta went to work last night with noseglasses and elevator shoes… just to stay anon.

  403. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER July 14, 2008 7:56 am

    gigi- Colt supporters are saying the Redskins do not give 4 year contracts to people who are not going to be around for awhile. I’m guessing that they will get more than their money’s worth when Colt gets a chance to get up to speed and on the field!

    😯 wOO hOO!!! 😯

  404. koakane™ July 14, 2008 7:58 am

    gigi forgot to ask about da pics.

  405. koakane™ July 14, 2008 8:02 am

    took me some time to figga out how da buggah run. still fooling around with it just to get it to function how I like. but man it is fast.

  406. tom mui July 14, 2008 8:03 am


    An income tax check-box for UH would be a good idea. It will raise money for the UH – after all $500-700k is not exactly loose change!

    Of course you have to take into consideration that our population is around 1.2 million which includes children and others who do not pay income tax and people who may not check the box.

    This assumes the legislature doesn’t cut the UH budget by that amount!

    I wonder how much money it will cost to administer the check off box?
    I understand that the IRS people spent about $1.00 per person notifying them that they should be getting the economic stimulus checks and another $1 encouraging us oldies and others to file their taxes to get the ES checks.
    (I spent mine buying a couple of tanks of gas).

    aren’t iphones expensive? what is it now, $500?

    my cell phone cost just $10. it is a samsung and I have Tmobile service. Just use it for outgoing calls in my car.

    U2B Baller and all parents of young ones that went to UH Coaches Camp

    Listening to Coach Mack on the radio last week, he mentions that building the infrastructure (his words) of the future of football in Hawaii,”we have to start with the young kids”. And he goes on to say that the infusion of both teaching the kids the fundamentals of football and the importance of having the kids do well in school the coaches, parents and mentors ingraining this concept gives them a head start. This is so true. Even as I listen on the radio I can feel the excitement exuding from Coach Mack when he talks about the ‘keiki”.

    Some of these kids we’ll remember this weekend for the rest of their lives. And future cars, iphones and xboxes, all material things, will soon have been forgotten years from now…and I’m thinking not this Football Camp…ever. Seeing Coach out there and his assistant coaches, guest coaches and former UH players helping the kids and images of all the other kids being excited will be remembrances for the kids that I believe are priceless. And motivating. And open the youngsters mind which is really important.

    Kids will talk to their friends about this past weekend. And pickup football games may take place. And tossing the football with Dad would be fun. Some kids will write book reports about the Football Camp. And other kids will come away in awe of the tall buildings, dorms and the campus.

    This proliferating effect, where you see an increase in numbers, shows that the parents are buying into the idea that these camps (like stepping stones) may help their sons chances of gaining an eventual football scholarship. And to others I believe, probably the majority, let’s have the kids have fun. And absorb the ambiance of the UH successes…and I thing this is great, too. And I think it’s great and idealistic of Coach Mack to have these camps because in my opinion it’s so instrumental in so many other aspects than only thinking that it only open the young kid’s eyes only to football.

    Morning Gang, catching up from earlier…

    Good news for bruddah Colt…funny reading the comments on the ESPN article, little do they know I tell you. Oh well, in a year or two when he unseats Campbell, they’ll stop talking “unko” and take notice what we all have been spoiled with over the years…

    #341 – Me back out on a date with Paula, yeah right, what was he thinking 🙂

    #344 – Hmm…I think Artest would be a better fit in LA, but Odom in Sac dunno. Don’t care for the Kings though, never did.
