Nash to (video) chat

Bob Nash will be our special guest during today’s video chat/show, which starts at noon. You may submit questions here through 11 a.m. You also are invited to ask questions on the show’s home page, located at Please join us.

* * *

The Super Games competition continues tomorrow with relay races. Let’s see if Steele Jantz can become the next Bruce Jenner — and, by that, I mean a decathlete and not the future step-dad of a Kim K.

* * *

Each UH sports team has been asked to help reduce expenses. The men’s volleyball team has been doing more than its share. The Warriors cut out prematch meals, trimmed the roster and shortened road trips. For Thursday’s match against Long Beach State, the Warriors will leave Wednesday afternoon. That means they will not have a full practice in the Pyramid.

* * *

Did anyone else notice that the Pyramid has been renamed The Walter Pyramid? That’s because Dr. Mike and Arline Walter donated oodles of moolah. But that makes it sound like: 1) Walter Pyramid is somebody’s actual name, like Lucille Ball, or 2) That’s Walter’s tomb.  I woud have preferred Walter’s Treasures in the Pyramid. But what do I know? I was handed “The Warrior Beat” when the bosses rejected “Tsai’s Matters.”

* * *

Happy belated birthday to the beautiful and intelligent Tiffany Ing. You’ll remember her as the winner of the UH helmet at the blog’s second anniversary bash.

  10. Stephen Tsai February 10, 2009 6:25 am

    How do they make curly fries?
    By not putting all of their irons in the fire?

  11. Hilorain February 10, 2009 6:26 am

    Good Morning! First time in the top whatever. The weather here in Hilo is living up to my name. But, plenty rain is better than no rain!

  12. Maverick February 10, 2009 6:26 am

    What a bunch of early myna birds we are.

    Plenty of trophy stickers on Tiffany’s helmet.

  13. SAWARRIOR February 10, 2009 6:26 am

    Happy Birthday Ms Ing!

  14. Stephen Tsai February 10, 2009 6:26 am

    You’re up rather early, too.
    Make sure you get up early tomorrow. It’s relay races.

  15. Stephen Tsai February 10, 2009 6:32 am

    Looking at the helmet’s stickers and face shield, is it possible it once belonged to …. hmmm.

    They use the Moe and Larry potatoes for stew and salad first?

    Did you say someone was MissIng?

  18. d1島 February 10, 2009 6:36 am

    …and finally,
    for those who wondered how the Stinkulus Bill got to $800B

    Give the ruling party deserved credit…they sure know how to take advantage of an opportunity!

    Try to have a great day anyway erryboddy!


  19. Stephen Tsai February 10, 2009 6:36 am

    When me & my friends go out on the town.
    We can’t sit still we can’t sit down.
    We don’t like to fight and we don’t like to scuffle.
    But we dance all night doing the Curly Shuffle.

    Hey Moe, Hey Moe (Hey Moe, Hey Moe) nyah nyah….
    But we never miss a chance, we get up and dance
    doing the Curly Shuffle.

    Well me & my friends love Larry & Moe.
    We love Curly’s brother Shemp & his fat clone Joe.
    It’s such a delight to boogie and hustle.
    Dancin’ all night doing the Curly Shuffle.


    Me & my friends we all love to see.
    Comedy classics on late night TV.
    Those knuckle heads, oh they get in a scuffle.
    They push & they shove doing the Curly Shuffle.

    We do the Curly Shuffle

  20. Garret February 10, 2009 6:37 am

    I think that it is crazy that Troy signed 41 players (the article says 40 but the Rivals list has 41) this year and so regularly goes over the 25 new scholarship limit.

    Prior to gorging on 40 signatures this time around, the Trojans inked 33 players in 2008, 32 players in 2007 and 32 in 2005. Lose a few of those “extra” guys every year, and it seems like small potatoes.

  21. bstunna2002 February 10, 2009 6:40 am

    Aloha kakahiaka Tsaikos and ST! Is there anyword on who Mack will be hiring to fill the vacant coaching positions or who the canidates are? Hope we find out soon I think Keala would make a great GA though.

  22. Stephen Tsai February 10, 2009 6:44 am

    There’s that hiring/grace period that has to pass.

  23. Maverick February 10, 2009 6:44 am

    Yes, I believe the helmet is from the man who keeps on giving.

  24. Stephen Tsai February 10, 2009 6:50 am

    A school may sign as many recruits as it wants. But it must honor all commitments by eligible players during the coming academic year.
    Or, in the words of Pete of 3rd Bass: “Now you’re getting sued … kinda stupid.”

  25. whitey February 10, 2009 6:51 am

    Happy Birthday Tiffany

  26. Stretch February 10, 2009 6:52 am

    Good Morning Tsaikos!!

    Hi Ho!

  29. Kekoa February 10, 2009 7:02 am

    Aloha Ka Kou Tsaiko Ohana!

    Big welcome aboard to SailorBlue this morning. We now have our official link to the USN! He told me he’d be lurking before jumping in with both feet. I thought that it was much better than him firing a shot over the bow of the SS Tsaiko as we sail into the Marina.

    Both he and his lovely wife have attended a few UH games since being stationed here at Pearl. However, he was quick to remind me that when the Midshipmen roll in to town come November…his Navy colors will be hoisted high and tight! That’s perfectly ok with us, we know how to handle that Navy coach!

  30. myki February 10, 2009 7:11 am


    Are the Wednesday games open to the public?

    Thanks for the info.

  31. wayoutwest February 10, 2009 7:19 am

    won’t be there for the blog so i’ll post my questions for coach nash here.

    how many scholies (if any) will be available for next season?
    is he actively recruiting any players that participated in the iolani classic?


  32. Kekoa February 10, 2009 7:27 am

    Tiffany ~ Don’t forget to put a ‘Birthday’ shine on that helmet! BTW – how many times has Mike made you wear that thing while riding on the back of his bike?

    Hau’oli la hanau Ms Ing!

  33. Buffoman February 10, 2009 7:32 am

    Questions for coach Nash:

    1. Having gotten this far in the season, are you satisfied with the ability of your coaching staff to teach and motivate your players? I sort of know the “PC” answer to that question but any possibility of some brutal honesty if improvement is merited? With a record of just above .500, everything cannot be absolutely peachy.

    2. Are you going after a Tom Henderson type of guard or an A.C. Carter type of guard, Tom being more of a bigger, physical true point guard, or A.C. a quick 1 more comfortable (in college) being a 2?

    3. So, was Bruce O’Neil really seeing a Yao in his recommended Chinese player that you scholarshipped or was he doing someone a favor? So far it hasn’t quite worked out as Bruce stated.

  34. addahknowjoe February 10, 2009 7:36 am

    The happiest of birthdays to you, Tiffy. You officially get to celebrate it once again this year.

    I can’t wait to see the huge present Mike got for you from all of us!

  35. Da Punchbowl Kid February 10, 2009 8:05 am

    Good morning, gangeez!

    Took the kid down to the electric company yesterday when who should I see but a prominent Tsaiko. The odds of seeing him? One in a million.

    Happy Birthday Tiffany!

  36. Da Punchbowl Kid February 10, 2009 8:07 am

    LMAO @ D1’s post #9! Toooooo funny!

  41. Da Punchbowl Kid February 10, 2009 8:21 am

    All I have to say to Coach Nash is keep up the good work. We see glimmers of the promise which your hiring held. I predicted at that time you would have the BB team playing some very exciting ball and we see it beginning. Congrats to you and the players for your recent big wins.

  42. Tanks Ah! February 10, 2009 8:31 am


    I had no idea you attended these blog outings and loved UH so much! Great to see you over the holidays. Happy birthday from your cousin on Maui!!

    my other friend had an idea for the video chats. (say them out loud, or in your head).
    Tsai’s Wai’s video chat?
    Wai’s Tsai video chat?
    ok, nvm. too lame.

  45. chawan_cut February 10, 2009 9:01 am

    oh, i forgot, here’s my question/comment.

    Coach Nash, Stephen, or THE Princess,

    Coach, I’m glad how things are turning around this season as we head to the WAC tourney. Big test this weekend against Nevada. I know this season is not over, but would you consider bringing back the Midnight/Twilight Ohana for next season? Seeing some of Rod and Brandon’s dunks this year, I would love to see them in a dunk contest to get us excited next year. Thanks, and lets beat Nevada on Saturday. Hopefully we’ll see Mark Fox cry and complain to the refs a lot and make his Valentine’s Day not so lovely.

  46. chawan_cut February 10, 2009 9:01 am

    oops, forgot to say
    Thank you!

  47. Stretch February 10, 2009 9:02 am

    Good to see koakane and (J)J burned off the alcohol.

    Look forward to seeing Coach Nash and the improvements of the Tsai and Wai show…don’t forget to enable the mics.

  50. Mei Ling February 10, 2009 9:16 am

    Stretch – And the thing is chawan said is was another friend’s idea. How many imaginary friends does he have?

  52. OldDiver February 10, 2009 9:17 am

    regarding #18

    It was the ruling party at that time ( GOP) that got us into this mess. Their solution is to do the same thing (more tax breaks for the rich, along with more deregulation and free trade) that got us into this mess in the first place. Being on the brink of a depression is not fun. Being in one will be worse.

    I only brought a disposable high speed film camera to catch snapshots and it needs processing yet. 🙁

    Aloha Tsaikos! Hope everyone has a good tuesday.

  58. Kazz February 10, 2009 9:47 am


    I believe Mark Fox might have the WAC officiating in his favor this Saturday.

    Since it is Valentine’s Day I’m sure Karl Benson has something nice planned for Fox… They make a lovely couple don’t ya think?

    … Well maybe not right now since Nevada is not ranked… 😆

  59. al ™ February 10, 2009 9:49 am

    happy birthday tiffany!

    (psst. mike. do you buy one combo gift or do you buy one for each occasion? jus’ curious)

  60. al ™ February 10, 2009 9:53 am

    question for nash

    i’ve heard talk that you only have one scholie for next year should all the players return. there are rumors that perphaps to make room for some sorely needed guards a few scholarship players will not be asked to return, is that in the realm of possibility?

    and could you expound on this subject?

  61. Stretch February 10, 2009 9:56 am

    February 10th, 2009 at 9:45 am
    I only brought a disposable high speed film camera to catch snapshots and it needs processing yet.

    I noticed that you had a disposable. I thought only tourist use that kind…

  62. mctruck February 10, 2009 10:00 am

    Coach Nash,

    what was the reason for recruiting that Chinese center?, was it that you needed somebody to fill the post spot for practices, o-what??..I think it was a wasted scolie, personally??

  63. al ™ February 10, 2009 10:00 am

    with that said, now to the serious matters of the day…curly fries

    jack uses a spiral slicer that cuts the whole potato from one end to another using an ingenious gizmo here’s one of the high end models available

    and did you know that e.k. fernandez brought those slicers to the carnivals in the late 80’s?

    …nuff said

  64. d1島 February 10, 2009 10:07 am


    Is there a high-end machine that Jack uses to shape the onion powder into the varying sizes of Onion Rings? I really like those! 🙂

  65. d1島 February 10, 2009 10:08 am

    Did not Colt “lose” his helmet after the Senior Bowl last year when his gear was mistakenly sent to USC and only a chin strap was found or some other insignificant gear? Police report filed?

  69. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 10:12 am

    I thought curly fries was just french fries going through puberty.

    ….never seen a curly fry on the toilet rim!

  71. Kekoa February 10, 2009 10:19 am

    OldDiver ~ I believe the point #18 makes is that it’s like finding an ATM machine that is freely dispensing cash. Nancy Pelosi would stand there and milk it for what it’s worth and then try to punch it out for more because it was so easy and available. She throws her classic ‘hissy’ fit and…

    Then she’d try to wring out even more thru legislation. Look at her record in that post. Then go back to the Reagan years when he turned the deficit he inherited from Carter and left a surplus when his time was expired.

    Whoops! Sorry about that last political post, I thought I was on Richard Borreca’s blog.

    Football, right…It’s about football. Tune to AM1500 Wednesday morning and listen to UCLA try to explain what happened last week. Apparently their lame equivlent to our blog meister will be on the show. According to the wise word on the street, he’s not like our powerhouse WB insider. I’ll bet he doesn’t even know the words to the ‘Lion’ song!

  82. Stephen Tsai February 10, 2009 10:58 am

    They give us a script, but 1) We can’t remember it, so we free lance, 2) We forget to turn the pages, so we free lance.

  83. Stephen Tsai February 10, 2009 10:58 am

    The part where we look like hostages reading a list of demands, that’s scripted.

  84. chawan_cut February 10, 2009 11:01 am

    good point. i wanna see him cry and scream this saturday. he won’t get away with it at our place. my friends (NON-IMAGINARY) and i will give him an earful. if you’re gonna be at the game, you can sit by us. i’m sure the whole valentine’s day thing will have the crowd thinner than usual.
    btw, i wonder where his all everything, guarantee NBA star Nick Fazekas is. hmmm…. cut by 3 teams and now playing in Europe. overrated from the start. a good college player, but he’d never cut it with the pros. wonder how good the next “superstar” is in Babbitt.
    you’re also right too. usually reno was the WAC’s baby when it came to basketball and we’ve all seen how mr. Benson has taken care of his favorites. this year its utah st, and deservingly so, but the WAC is a weaker conference than it has been this year, so their record and ranking might be inflated (just as Boise’s was for football).

  85. al ™ February 10, 2009 11:02 am

    onion rings?
    haven’t had an onion ring from jack’s box in a while. there are two kinds the real ones and the extruded ones.

    if you hit an “uncomfortable silent” spot in the livecast, just look pretty and smile for the camera and all of you don’t move. we’ll think its a glitch and it got stuck on that frame.

  87. LizKauai [Believer] February 10, 2009 11:04 am

    ST- scripts are good- just pretend you are not “reading”. As for your ad libbing- THAT is what people will tune in to look for. Anyone can run a vanilla interview. It is your underbreath one-liners that will make your show SPECIAL – (good seats- you can always put them up on eBay if you can’t go).

    I can see you and the Princess taking turns being Ed and Johnny. And sooner or later, a “Princess” reference will have to show up so people can’t see “Leila Wai” without thinking “Princess”.

    Yup- lotsa hook potentials.
    Break a leg!

  88. SteveM February 10, 2009 11:04 am

    ST — tell them you need a teleprompter, an interpreter, a dialog coach, a director, and make-up trailer. They can buy it with the pay cut money…. or just let you freelance.

    The tide is indeed turning for the basketball team and to see Nitoto play with so much emotion on Saturday should just be an inkling of what is to come for the second half of the season.

    I hope Amis will be ready because Nevada is no Idaho. 9 out 10 times Nevada will beat Idaho.

    Nevada had a better team in 2007 and we almost took it all the way until the OT loss.

    Vengance is sweet!!!

    I shall see you on Saturday sir!

    Was there a Yuval Katz type volleyball player in the Israeli army that was coming to UH?

    What happened?

  94. Kekoa February 10, 2009 11:15 am

    ST ~ Here are a few questions for Coach Nash. Feel free to pick one:

    ~ Coach, how is your son doing in Japan?…

    ~ What I mean is, is he adjusting to the living and playing conditions?

    ~ How are the Japanese fans receiving him as a player?

    ~ Is he having fun?…or is it harder than he thought it would be?

    ~ Is he keeping an eye out for young talent for you to evaluate?

    Thanks for coming on the WB with Wai & Sai…and Thank you for your many years of devoted service to the University of Hawaii. First as a player, and now as a Coach. I wish you even bigger and better years ahead!

  95. SteveM February 10, 2009 11:18 am

    No, Liz — the stunt double might be used instead of the make-up trailer… 😛

    My last words on the stimulus “package”.

    Many say that it would cost trillions of dollars if they give XXX$ to each federal tax filer/payer and it may be true.

    The Feds have already given nearly $1 trillion to various “big, important” companies, but hundreds of thousands are still losing their jobs, thousands of homes are being fore clcosed, many business continue to lose income, etc. Why, because, we the general public, have limited or no funds to buy merchandise or repay loans.

    That’s why the idea of “giving”, yes giving $$$ to individuals will help to turn around this mess.

    as al says, nuff said.

    PS. d1, thanks for your wise counsel.

  98. Stephen Tsai February 10, 2009 11:27 am

    Actually, I just blew my nose.
    That’s how I prepare.

  99. Stephen Tsai February 10, 2009 11:29 am

    Just a thought, but you can’t give everybody a huge check or else it devalues the money. Then you run into the case of the $1,000 loaf of bread.
    Of course, this blog still will be free.

  100. postmanke February 10, 2009 11:35 am

    as is the case with Zimbabwe where using their currency to wipe their arses is cheaper than using toilet paper

  101. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 11:36 am

    IMO, the basis of this economic downturn is the price of consumer goods increased way faster than pay. Now the private and government sectors are implementing plans to reduce pay, furlough, and layoff workers which defeats the purpose because there will be less spending…oops, just like kekoa, wrong blog. Sorry

  102. d1島 February 10, 2009 11:47 am


    …that’s the “dirty, little secret”

  103. Jason February 10, 2009 11:48 am

    Scripted? But I was going to tune in to see if we were going to get a Network or Studio 60-like rant …

    Happy birthday Tiffany!

    I’m all for cutting costs, but things like pregame meals and practice time … you start to wonder if cutting those costs affects performance enough that it really starts to affect revenue intake. Then again, ticket sales and attendance aren’t that great anyways …

  112. Committed Road Warrior February 10, 2009 12:24 pm

    How crude!

  113. Jason February 10, 2009 12:24 pm

    First 1,000-1,200 students? I’d be happy getting 100-120 to start!

    One of the problem with the student fees, IMO, is the leadership change over the past few years with ASUH, the student gov’t. As the leadership has transitioned, the priority level of the student fees issue has wavered. Not to mention, some people balk at increasing fees even $20, let alone $50-$100, where I would recommend.

    I heard a couple of girls on the bus talking about the U-Pass proposal. One of them is with the grad student gov’t, and she was telling her friend that on the Mainland, her old school charged a universal fee for global bus passes, and that it was good; but that here, people are complaining about the proposed $20 charge. That’s another example of how the student body is cheap and not very visionary. It sounds like the U-Pass might get through, though.

  114. Stretch February 10, 2009 12:26 pm

    whoa – was Nash at Karaoke on Saturday??

    Good, smooth video stream! Stephen’s mike is a bit soft and echoey. Need to lose the papers on the downstage side of the table.

  118. Jason February 10, 2009 12:35 pm

    Ooh, chawan_cut is getting some attention from the Princess … 😀

  119. chawan_cut February 10, 2009 12:37 pm

    dang… stephen got me good.

  120. LizKauai [Believer] February 10, 2009 12:37 pm

    PL- make the text larger on the screen so you don’t have to peer. Wow- ST is laming chawan_cut ????

  121. LizKauai [Believer] February 10, 2009 12:38 pm

    All in all, Coach Nash is looking and sounding very good!

  122. LizKauai [Believer] February 10, 2009 12:40 pm

    Yea! Good Job… but the theme music reminds me of The Silence of the Lambs…

  123. addahknowjoe February 10, 2009 12:40 pm

    OK. I did my part.

  124. Jason February 10, 2009 12:40 pm

    Good show!

  125. chawan_cut February 10, 2009 12:41 pm

    thats what i get. i was being serious too with all my questions.
    i don’t know who wrote “The Princess looks lovely.”
    that wasn’t me! i promise!
    i wasn’t trying to be lame this time.
    oh well, i guess it just follows me wherever i go.

  126. LizKauai [Believer] February 10, 2009 12:42 pm

    Yea, A-Joe!

  127. Jason February 10, 2009 12:43 pm

    And now 1,100 people know chawan_cut needs a date for Saturday. Let’s see if there are any takers besides koamahu and Maryanne.

  128. Stretch February 10, 2009 12:45 pm

    hahahahahahaha – CC is lame AND LONELY!!!

  129. chawan_cut February 10, 2009 12:45 pm

    but only 10 people know who chawan_cut really is…. the rest are my imaginary friends.

  130. LizKauai [Believer] February 10, 2009 12:47 pm

    1100 – is that really the viewership? Not bad!

  131. LizKauai [Believer] February 10, 2009 12:48 pm

    chawan_cut… I would go with you – and people would think well of you for taking your mom to a BB game… not lame anymore 😉

  132. Jason February 10, 2009 12:48 pm

    Since when do computer scientists deal with imaginary numbers? Those relationships must be complex …

    No wait, I’m mixing up my imaginary friends with your imaginary friends.

  133. SteveM February 10, 2009 12:49 pm

    Good show.

    My only criticism is that last week there was a lot of dead air time since continuity between the video playing and the talents was poor. This week, Leila and ST both got cut off in mid-sentence by canned stuff. Maybe OK to have ST talk too long and get cut off by the closing credits 🙂 but cutting of Leila or ST for a commercial is irritating.

    If there is truly a director for this, have him/her use fingers to count down the time to switch points between live and canned stuff.

  134. postmanke February 10, 2009 12:51 pm

    wow, I have to remember to turn my surround sound on next week. – those whoooosh sounds with music in the intro gets me pumped and ready for the show

  135. Jason February 10, 2009 12:51 pm

    I’m taking my Mom to Valentine’s Day lunch at Makino Chaya … Hmm, I think I might be in more need of a date than chawan_cut.

  136. Stephen Tsai February 10, 2009 12:55 pm

    I think Chawan should ask Kelli.

    what happened to your bball girlfriend?? she wasn’t impressed with the seats and hospitality room??

  138. John February 10, 2009 1:06 pm

    Thanks for the feedback on the show, folks! We’re doing our best to improve each week. Keep the input coming!

    Steve, we are counting the talent in, however, timing of when each peice cuts in and out can be effected by connection latency and the way our live streaming software syncs viewers. We’re working on timing and will do our best to improve.

    How was audio this week? We tried to level the live mics to the broadcast audio levels of our video assets and intro/credit bumpers. Let us know if you’d like a small bump on the live show audio.

    Looking forward to next week’s show! Tell your friends and family to tune in! .


  139. jm2375 February 10, 2009 1:08 pm

    ST – are you trying to get C_C in trouble. Doesn’t Kelli have a boyfriend?

    Stretch – 😀 🙄

  140. Jason February 10, 2009 1:08 pm

    Stephen: chawan_cut’s a little too lame and a little too old for Kelli.

    Stretch: She goes to school in California at Occidental.

  141. jm2375 February 10, 2009 1:12 pm

    Stretch – there’s a big difference between C_C and CC. Personally, I’ll take CC (cattle call) anytime. It ain’t so lame….

  142. Stephen Tsai February 10, 2009 1:13 pm

    I do not believe she does.

  143. Jason February 10, 2009 1:23 pm

    So you mean that guy who came with Kelli to the Christmas party was just there to protect her from chawan_cut and James?

  144. SteveM February 10, 2009 1:27 pm

    John — thank you for the explanation. I’m sure it will work out fine.

    Anyone remember me losing a bet when I said Ferd would speak more than ST when on TV? 🙂

  145. al ™ February 10, 2009 1:28 pm

    great job, great show, great guest.

    a couple more shows and you two may be ready for primetime as artie would say.

    now, there’s an interesting guest for you.

    and thanks for asking my question.

  146. Kelli February 10, 2009 1:30 pm

    Aiya… See what happens when I go to the gym and read all this stuff so late in the day… I can’t even defend myself. Haha! jm2375 is right.

  147. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 1:30 pm

    jm#### – well if you were at the KK then you would know why ST made that chawan comment. The thing is you’ll never know cause what happens at the KK most times stay at the KK. 😆

  148. Stretch February 10, 2009 1:31 pm

    wow – look at that. You guys talk about Kelli, her ears start itching, and she shows up…. amazing!!

  149. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 1:32 pm

    chawan – That was a bold comment you made on the Tsai and Wai show.

  150. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 1:34 pm

    Kelli goes to the gym? Why?

  151. Kelli February 10, 2009 1:35 pm

    Stretch: Very funny. It’s like magic!

    Ok, I’m hungry now. I think I’m gonna eat a bowl of cereal. Rice Krispies are on sale at Longs, so I bought myself a box yesterday. Why am I telling you guys this?

    You know what else… People at the gym watch the Food Network while they work out. It’s kinda distracting to me. I just wanna get off the elliptical and go for a red velvet cake from CBTL or Starbucks.

  152. al ™ February 10, 2009 1:35 pm

    stretch…..some folks here think that you are single????

  153. Kelli February 10, 2009 1:36 pm

    homey ℞: I don’t know. It’s supposed to help with stress, but I don’t know about that. I do have fun shopping for UA stuff to wear to workout in, though. 😀

  154. Jason February 10, 2009 1:38 pm

    UA stuff? If Kelli didn’t already have a boyfriend, maybe her and Kazz … 😉

  155. al ™ February 10, 2009 1:38 pm

    c_c i feel your pain.

  156. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 1:38 pm

    Kelli – You and Kazz are UA groupies.

  157. John February 10, 2009 1:41 pm

    @SteveM – Cool, thanks for the input!

    How is the replay working for everyone? It seems to be playing back smoothly on our end, despite possible latency during live broadcast.

    Let us know!


  158. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 1:42 pm

    BTW, good show today ST and Princess Leila. I like the humor and laughter. You 2 even have the head nod in unison.

  160. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 1:43 pm

    Playback is smooooooth. Too bad the viewers can’t do a pause and rewind.

  161. Kelli February 10, 2009 1:50 pm

    Jason: Because we both like UA stuff? Haha! Very funny… What about you? Is there an explanation for why you were MIA on Saturday? And what are you doing for Valentine’s Day? Hopefully your plans didn’t include Nick’s Fishmarket or Brew Moon cuz no more.

    al ™: I think chawan_cut already knew that.

    homey ℞: Kazz probably has more stuff than me. I only have three shirts, two shorts, headbands and a bag. I was thinking of getting UA shoes, but I don’t know anything about them. Gotta research it.

  162. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 1:52 pm

    If anyone cares, (J)J is single too.

  163. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 1:56 pm

    Kelli – Leave it to a future grad student to do research on shoes. 😆

    I don’t own any UA shirts. They accentuate my belly button.

  164. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 2:00 pm

    Coach Nash mentioned that there are 2 schollies available next season. I sure hope he gets a good point guard.

  165. Kelli February 10, 2009 2:02 pm

    homey ℞: Do you prefer Nike?

  166. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 2:02 pm

    Anyone think a player’s scholarship will not be renewed next season?

  167. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 2:04 pm

    Kelli – I don’t even have running/walking/workout shoes. I use rubber slippers.

  168. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 2:06 pm

    I think it would have been cool if there were some valentines hearts on the Tsai and Wai table. Next week maybe ST wears something to celebrate President’s Day.

  169. Jason February 10, 2009 2:08 pm

    Kelli: Originally, I was just going to go to the basketball game on Saturday night. These KKs last so long, I need to get some rest cause I teach Sunday school at church, and it doesn’t work out well when I’m a zombie. But then I caught this cold, so I didn’t go out at all. I took the time to catch up on some math team work that I needed to get done.

    I actually took today off from school too to do the same thing. I’m almost 5/6 of the way there, should finish by tonight. 😀

  170. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 2:12 pm

    zombie and not a drop of alcohol? weak!

    5/6? You math majors are so precise!


  171. al ™ February 10, 2009 2:12 pm

    stretch…..( ? )….okay you got me on that one, i am speechless.

  172. Jason February 10, 2009 2:13 pm

    ICS majors use 0.833, and they get the BSOD.

  173. chawan_cut February 10, 2009 2:16 pm

    wow, i disappear to actually get some work done today and i come back to all this.
    thanks Stephen for the suggestion, but i won’t be alone saturday. i’ll be there with my other (real) friends yelling at Coach Fox to sit down and stop crying.
    thanks everyone else for the support and the jokes.

  174. al ™ February 10, 2009 2:16 pm

    homey……a little birdie whispered that two guys are on the bubble for next year. no names. thus, the basis for my question.

    it is my belief that we will need 2-3 guards who can shoot from the perimeter and a quick pg. i like what nitoto did the past two games, but, i am still not convinced that he is a pg at this level. thompson is too slow afoot and doesn’t really have an outside touch.

    and numbers wise we need at least one or two bigs who can contribute in two years.

  175. chawan_cut February 10, 2009 2:17 pm

    stephen, stick to your script next time! no ad libbing… heh. but it was funny.

  176. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 2:17 pm

    BSOD – Big Sexy Outrageous Body???

  177. chawan_cut February 10, 2009 2:19 pm

    i just realized my 2nd question was one that coach nash already answered previously in the interview.
    my live feed was skipping and i missed a lot of stuff earlier.

  178. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 2:20 pm

    chawan – stop hitting on the Princess.

    al – I agree. Main thing is get a point guard. You know, someone that was born to be a point guard, not someone who is taught to be a point guard.

    stevem… worry. once i commit my word is my honor. i have stretch’s lunch the next time we meet if he can ever get off the northern rock.

    stretch, we need to test out the tsukiji market. let’s call it a meeting.

  182. al ™ February 10, 2009 2:25 pm


    is that why she had all those black n blues. was from you and not the soccer match, eh?

  183. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 2:26 pm

    chawan – nah, Faye lurks on Cooley’s site now.

  184. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 2:27 pm

    al – for some reason I rather have Makino’s than Tsukiji.

  185. Jason February 10, 2009 2:31 pm

    Mmm, Makino Chaya on Saturday. I think my church has a reservation for 30-something. It’ll feel just like a Tsai-ko cattle call. 😀

  186. chawan_cut February 10, 2009 2:35 pm

    homey, al,
    next time in vegas, try a place called Sushi Mon on Sahara. all you can eat nigiri and rolls and anything on their menu. if you sit at the sushi bar, its like you have your own personal chef waiting to make whatever you want.

    al, don’t spread any rumors like that. i would never do such a thing.

  187. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 2:38 pm

    chawan – how fresh is their fish?

    You would never do what? give black and blues or play soccer?

  188. chawan_cut February 10, 2009 2:41 pm

    both. i don’t think i could run fast enough to catch anyone or the ball. i’m too out of shape. i should start exercising again.
    fish is fresh. when we go to vegas, we eat there at least twice. its a locals spot for sushi. my friend who lives there took me and i’ve taken everyone else that i’ve gone with since. no complaints.

  189. chawan_cut February 10, 2009 2:42 pm

    i should ask you what your exercise regimen involves. and not the kine you and koakane do while making gaugee.

  190. SteveM February 10, 2009 2:45 pm

    BTW, the Tsai-ko size girl with the brown hair that was sitting near Peaches at the KKall is available….

    …and if the Warrior Beat now gets through the firewall at her work place 🙄

  191. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 2:47 pm

    chawan – you should ask Kelli what gym she goes to. 😉

    Exercise regimen? You gotta ask A-House, (J)J, Kazz, or gg’s hubby, they all go to the gym.

  192. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 2:49 pm

    SteveM – She rocks!

  193. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 2:50 pm

    Another thing I noticed on the Tsai and Wai show is how small Coach Nash looked. Was he sitting on the floor?

  194. TOM February 10, 2009 2:57 pm

    Speaking of CB, in that benefit for Leukemia, the TV news showed a check from him to that benefit. But nothing in the newsprint or even in this Blog.

    Just want to point out that Colt gives back to the community not only by appearing and talking to all of us, but also puts $$$ and not just words.

  195. chawan_cut February 10, 2009 3:00 pm

    the focus of today’s chat was supposed to be about coach nash and the basketball program.
    how’d it get turned onto me??? i’m not important.

  196. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 3:02 pm

    chawan – I think your comment on the show started it and ST mentioned you.

    Jason: Are you feeling better? Don’t forget to drink tea!!!

    homey ℞: I think I blogged about it before. I guess people will know where I workout at now. It’s getting a little crowded at Powerhouse now because all the former Gold’s Gym members go there. Maybe I should try 24-hour? I dunno.

  199. A-House February 10, 2009 3:07 pm


    we go to the Sushi Mon in Henderson, near South Coast casino.

    where on Sahara is your Sushi Mon?

  200. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 3:08 pm

    Thanks Kelli, now Powerhouse will have a new member soon!

  201. chawan_cut February 10, 2009 3:09 pm

    that was not my comment that started the show. it was an imposter!
    i changed my live chat name to the_real_chawan_cut to make it clear. i guess not.
    i have no clue who you and stevem are talking about.

  202. homey ℞ February 10, 2009 3:13 pm

    chawan – She was siting in the section below you.

  203. Jason February 10, 2009 3:13 pm

    Kelli: Nothing like sleeping in until 10:30 to help you feel better. And now I am 5/6 of the way through with my math team work. Once I finish this, I can start concentrating on my school work. 🙂

    And yes, I have ginger-lemon tea. In fact, I should make a cup right now.

  204. Kazz (BB_Storm) February 10, 2009 3:14 pm

    Ok… My eats hurt….

    Kelli, check out the UA Revernant running shoes at Sports Authority. They will have different types depending on how u land on ur feet when u run. Kinda pricey tho… I have UA evades and powers for gym use.

    They’re ok for what they are but if u are a serious runner I would stick with New Balance.

  205. LizKauai [Believer] February 10, 2009 3:15 pm

    JOHN- I haven’t seen the beginning of the video yet- just the Nash interview. BUT I notice a reference “Washington Redskins’ tight end Richard Cooley talking about teammate and ex-Warrior quarterback Colt Brennan. ”

    Nice summary of the nonconference schedules for Pac-10 teams for the 2009 season. Most of the schedules look good, but Arizona and Arizona State really seem to be taking it easy compared to the other teams in their conference.

    Arizona’s first 2 nonconference games:
    Central Michigan
    Northern Arizona

    Arizona State’s first 2 nonconference games:
    Idaho State

    Oregon facing *both* BSU and Utah really shows that they aren’t afraid to face the top-tier of non-BCS conference teams. That shows they wouldn’t be afraid to play UH…I’d love for UH to schedule a home-and-home with them.

    Salaries for coordinators are getting so crazy that Fresno State has given up in their search for offensive and defensive coordinators and instead they will promote from within their staff.

    Provided the hints Fresno State football coach Pat Hill has dropped about his assistant coach search, it would seem Jeff Grady and Tim Skipper are great candidates to become the new offensive and defensive coordinators.

    “Salaries for assistant coaches are astronomical,” Hill said recently. “Right now, in this financial market, you have to go after younger coaches. I’ve gone with older, established, out-of-work coaches and we lose them very, very quickly.

    “… I want young coaches who want to be at Fresno State and be the best they can possibly be.”

    So, Fresno State could have offensive and defensive coordinators who are just 29 and 30 years old! That would be a *slight* contrast to the ages of UH’s coaching staff.

    RE: Storm

    That was me rushing. I turned off the spell check and SureType thing to go faster. Hard fo text in pidgin with those features on.

    BTW.. I have no clue what the “glitches” are that people complained about.

    There is no “lag” with the storm from the portrait view to landscape view and it’s just as responsive while downloading a page. The videos are clear, I even tried out VZW Navigator from work to home and it’s accurate to the spot. The touchscreen is not even an issue for me, I just have to get used to the blue glow that highlights the letters/symbols you intend to type before you actually register your choice by actually clicking the screen.

    My only gripe is the lack of a battery level indicator when completely powering off the handset and then charging it. There is only an LED light that stays steady when the phone is completely charged. Also, compared to the iPhone the applications already on it are not as extensive. There is the VZW Navigator, MySpace, Flickr, Facebook, Word, Excel, and a few others.

    Battery life is pretty good and there is a feature on there to set your storm to power off and power on at a time and day you choose to conserve the battery. My last gripe is how BlackBerry phones are not compatible with Verizon’s “Back Up Assistant” feature. It’s an online account with VZW that automatically holds all your phone #s for you. So in case you lose your phone and need to find a number, you can just log online. So I had to download the BlackBerry software from a CD they gave me and then transport all of my contacts to my desktop. Unfortunately the information is NOT in a “read-able” encription so the only way to retrieve it is through another blackberry device.

    Also, I haven’t messed with the Word or Excel application on it yet, but I will get to it eventually.

    Overall, I like it. My brother has the iPhone and he’s a techie that likes to find anything to complain about and he played around with my Storm and said the negative reviews by some on-line are not fair. Of course I bought my phone AFTER the latest firmware update so maybe that’s why I haven’t encountered the problems people complained about.

    The Fab Five was made up of brothas. This is why they were so great. This is the formula Nash must use if he expects to be successful.

    Interesting story about Gilroy H.S.(Cal.) QB Jamie Jensen who passed for 7,000 yards during the last two seasons but still has no offers from D1 colleges. There are a few schools still looking at him but he may have to go the J.C. route like Jeremiah Masoli did. One of the schools that is still talking to him is San Jose State. Article says that he is a very good passer, has great vision, leadership, and presence, but has a funky release.

    Give me results and a funky release any day over poor results but a sweet loooking release. Got a feeling that a few schools will feel sorry in a few years that they didn’t pick this kid up.

    john lister is big “travis sims” type back, north and south, take no prisoners type of guy who just loves to hit the defense.

    Re UFC 94 payouts

    UFC has confirmed about 1.3 million buys for the PPV at say $45 each, that comes out to $58 mil, just in PPV. Not sure about the gate receipts.

    Initial word was that BJ Penn was paid only $125,000 but he does get shares of the PPV money as being part of the main event. His payout is actually close to a million. Not too bad but considering what Dana White and his crew made, it is still not enough.

    Texas really got the recruiting season moved up much earlier than before, even since Mack Brown took over 10 years ago. I remember how Texas A&M used to have little or no commits until the final weekend, and they would bring in all their recruits for official visits on that final weekend and end up with awesome recruiting classes. Mack Brown ended that strategy by getting the players to commit early…and Texas A&M has never recovered. Now everyone, including UH, makes offers extremely early.

    Texas was basically done recruiting last year in June. With their second Junior day later this month, they could be nearly done recruiting in February this year! Making their offers scarce commodities is a great marketing strategy–recruits feel the need to commit early or someone else will get the offer and they will lose out on their chance.

    With the dust barely settled from last Wednesday’s national signing day, Texas already has 10 oral commitments for 2010 that would be the envy of most programs.

    The early haul is the result of Texas’ junior day last weekend, in which an elite group of seniors-to-be were invited to Austin.

    Texas coach Mack Brown introduced the concept of early commitments to the state when he arrived at UT more than a decade ago. Now it’s common for recruits to commit the summer before their senior seasons.

    Burton said 19 of the 20 recruits Texas signed last week committed back in June. The large number of February commitments is unprecedented.

    Florida man got more than 50 traffic citations in one day! He’s lucky that nobody was hurt by his reckless driving, though his car is probably in bad shape after flipping over.

  311. PowderPuff February 10, 2009 10:32 pm

    I guess you could say so. I was thinking about it, and it didn’t come to me ’til I wen bocha a little while ago.

  312. chawan_cut February 10, 2009 10:36 pm

    I wrote somewhere else,and basically I wanted to get this off my chest here, too. In reference of this sport’s columnists bemoaning about how UH should keep the local talent home it just rubbed me the wrong way. He’s probably right. But to me me it speaks badly of the ones (recruits) we got this year. And I don’t think so. I think we did great this year.

    Accentuate the positives, but no the columnist wants to write and say we…… “need to keep the local talent home”. It’s almost like inferring that the local recruits we got this year are a bunch of slugs. And that’s the furthest from the truth. The kids recruited in the last couple of years are going to be great. I think so. The coaches think so. And a lot of fans think so.

    The UH football program, presently, has a nice wind at it’s back. And things are sailing along, nicely.

    In regards to recruiting and looking off in the horizon, or future, the UH football program made huge advances with this class.

    Here’s a list of local high school recruits that are coming to the Warriors.
    Check the other schools, mostly PAC-10, that UH competed with in recruitment.
    How I see it, UH did a creditable job. As another poster mentioned, the super athlete, or anomaly, has a mind of his own, that he deservingly wants to play on the biggest stage. This shouldn’t be a slight on UH. Or, further, induce a columnist into saying that “we need to get more of the top local players.” Patience. Patience. Patience.

    Stutzmann (Washington State,Washington,Oregon State, Michigan State, Colorado)
    Ma’afala (California, Washington)
    Shutter (New Mexico)
    Brackenridge (Idaho, Wyoming)
    Aulola Tonga (UCLA, BYU)
    Lopati (Washington, Oregon State, Oregon, Colorado, California, Baylor)

    There’s a cache of high school talent in the islands.

    And we’re seeing that the speed and quickness clinics, combines, camps are all tools for the kids to get better . And the UH coach’s interests in the kids, the kid’s interest in the UH and the UH coaches fostering bonds with recruit’s parents, community and the high school coaches are the impetus that will quickly see more of the local kids gravitating to UH.

    The residual of all this interests as a result is so beneficial to the kids. For all of all this motivation (camps, combines,etc) and mentoring (speeches telling the kids to do their school work) by the UH coaches is making the kids opening their eyes and evoking their interests in football. And this is the very important first step in recruitment. Coach Mack sees the picture. (I didn’t say this, but I should have–“But the columnist doesn’t).

    Back to guard duty. Goodnight all.

  327. Kekoa February 10, 2009 11:56 pm

    Good night Homey…Good night all…

    Thanks ST for allowing coach Nash to share his insight with us. It’s always a treat to listen to a coach that bubbles over with enthusiasim for his players and his program.

  328. jm2375 February 11, 2009 12:05 am

    Good night Kekoa. Time for me to good nene too… Hasta manana.

    A nice 2-hour snow delay morning everyone!!!

  334. Stretch February 11, 2009 4:24 am

    Good Morning Tsaikos!!

    PowderPuff, finally you come out of hiding and have a name!! Can we call you PP for short?? Ummmm, better not, homey might think we are talking about something else.

  335. wafan February 11, 2009 4:27 am

    Good program on the WAT Show yesterday. Thanks for the rerun link!

    Is there a way to watch the past video in an archive? Or is it a once it is gone say aloha type of thing. I can see where that would be a good thing but one that may eventually eat up a lot of space.

  336. wafan February 11, 2009 4:34 am

    Seems Esme and Tsai are setting up a matchmaking service. Keeping with moms and Tsai-kos it could be the EaT service.

  337. wafan February 11, 2009 4:41 am

    Oops. Might have to rethink the name of the show and service.

    “The Wai and Tsai Show”

    “The Esme and Tsai Service”

    I wonder why the social services continue to give the mother of the 14 kids money. Were did she get the 10k for the fertility treatment? What doctor would do this to a person who cannot even support herself?

    Is she trying to break some kind of sick world record?

    Is the father paying any child support for the first six kids? And now he has to pay for 14? I certainly feel sorry for her parents!

    If the economy was in better shape would we view this story in a more positive light?


  339. Garret February 11, 2009 6:09 am


    I read that she got an anonymous sperm donor for her latest birth (the 8 kids)…no father to pay child support because nobody knows who the sperm donor is.

    The father of the mother of 14 is going to Iraq to work as a contractor because he can make a lot more money that way and help support his grandchildren. The mother of the mother of 14 is upset with the doctor that gave her fertility treatments–the doctor that gave the fertility treatments for the woman’s first 6 kids refused.

    The mother of 14 apparently collected $100k or so in a disability claim, which is how she said that she could afford fertility treatments. Of course, it does bring to mind the question of why she is so dependent on food stamps and government payments for her kids when she is sitting on so much cash.

  340. Garret February 11, 2009 6:10 am

    I’m going to be off blog all work day, which is sad for me. Even sadder is that I have to wear a suit today to attend a conference…I hate wearing that suit.

    Thanks. But, who is going to remind me for the rest of the day?

  344. wafan February 11, 2009 6:24 am

    Time to scrape my windows . . . again.

  345. LizKauai (iPhone) February 11, 2009 6:43 am

    Aloha Kakahiaka!
    Wafan- $100k won’t last a year to care for those kids. Sheesh.
    Friends of mine had 5 kids under 5 (2 sets of twins and a single) and it took both parents at home full time to care for them properly and not go crazy. And that was in simpler times in the 70s.

  346. LizKauai (iPhone) February 11, 2009 6:48 am

    Garret- may you reap the sweet fruits of your labor to compensate for “suit day”.

    Great Morning All!

    Nice job with the Nash interview yesterday!
    Maybe next week there could be Matchmaking updates?

    Each UH sport team is trimming their expenses. I wonder who or what the Wahine bb team could trim to help out?
