No easy answers for Graunke

According to several people in the know, quarterback Tyler Graunke will not have an easy time resolving the personal issues that will enable him to participate in training camp.
In the best scenario, he still would fall behind in the competition to succeed Colt Brennan. The reps that were going to be spread among four quarterbacks now will go to only Inoke Funaki, Greg Alexander and Brent Raush.
It’s a sad situation, especially since Graunke is truly a nice guy. Last year, Graunke kept alive the Warriors’ perfect regular season with a dramtic comeback victory over Nevada. It is hoped he can do the same for his UH career.

It’s check-in day for 19 newcomers at the “University Hilton” — the two second-story dance studios in the UH athletic complex. Yesterday, the cots were delivered.


This is one of the studios. By the end of the first week, the cots will be turned on end, forming an octagon, where mixed-martial pillow fights will be staged.


Checking in first does not mean receiving first choice. The veterans, particularly the larger-sized ones (think: Blaze Soares, Rocky Savaiigaea) are expected to claim the “lanai,” which is breezy and offers a wonderful view of Cooke Field.



What’s a UH facility without a little controversy?


Because he participated in spring training, cornerback Jameel Dowling is allowed to report tomorrow.



Defensive end Cameron Allen-Jones said: “Do NOT take my picture.” Whoops.

En route to paying more than $1,000 to repair the JUGS machine, Big Hilo Fan showed this pamphlet of UH cheers. He was going to give it to Greg McMackin.

    Too bad about Tyler, I thought he would be strong enough to beat those demons that tempt him.
    I hope that Graunke finds the inner strength to overcome his issues.

    Gosh, what is going on with Tyler? Inquiring minds want to know .. whatever it is .. seems like an awful lot has been going on off the field for Tyler .. does it make any of his teammates doubt him as a leader, that he seems to not be able to get his act together?

    I am not in the know .. but it’s too bad for a guy who waiting all this time for his chance once CB left .. and now competition is stiff.

  16. 99club August 2, 2008 4:40 am

    Good morning Tsaikos!

    Sorry to read about Tyler’s missing the start of camp. Hope things get worked out.

    Tomorrow’s Hall of Fame Game might have Colt in for some reps in the 2d half, eh? Can’t wait.

    Aloha Kakahiaka!!!

    AZ Cardinals training camp news: Hercules has chance… he’s been used as the center for their second string drills. Go, Hercules! You can do it.

    Earlier Thursday, Whisenhunt said starting center Al Johnson, whose left knee hurting, will either have to undergo rehab to fix it or have a surgical procedure again to clean it out. Either way, Johnson looks like he will miss extended training camp time.

    Then the Cards got hit again during Thursday’s lone practice when new second-string center Scott Peters ended up at the bottom of a pile during a drill. Peters hurt his left knee and had to be carted off the field.

    Whisenhunt did not meet with the media in the afternoon, so any possible update will not come until Friday.

    Lyle Sendlein, who already was replacing Johnson, was working with the second team as well immediately after Peters’ injury. The only other center for the Cards is undrafted rookie Hercules Satele, who was a guard in college.

    Cardinals practice this morning. Kona go & see who I can catch up with.

  18. MeiLing August 2, 2008 5:06 am

    AZ Cardinals update mentioning Hercules Satele:

    With third-string center Scott Peters done for the season after hurting his knee in Thursday’s practice, the Cardinals put Peters on injured reserve and claimed center Pat Ross off waivers from Carolina. Ross has been with the Colts, Seahawks and Patriots since arrived in the league undrafted in 2006.

    Backup center Lyle Sendlein, who started two games in Johnson’s place last season, will move into the lineup. The only other center is undrafted rookie Hercules Satele.

    Leinart acknowledged changing centers does have an effect on the exchange with the QB.

    “You get used to a guy, whether it is Al or Lyle,” Leinart said. “It does have an effect. It’s more mental than anything. You can’t ask for too much – guys go down – but you do like to have the same guy.”

    oops… sorry about the double-post.

    Dang, wish Tyler would keep it together. Hope he gets on top of whatever he needs to take care of, and can make it back to camp. I believe in Coach Mack’s top goal to graduate these student-athletes.

    Tyler, if you can’t play a lot, just graduate to earn a major success of your life. Good luck!

  33. slim August 2, 2008 6:39 am

    Tyler since you won’t be on the field remember that you can purchase season tickets at a reduced price. But since you missed the July 31 PPV deadline you cannot qualify to watch your teammates in Florida and other away games at the special rate of $99. Since you won’t be on the team bus to the stadium you can donate $400 or more and park in the inner circle of the stadium. Too bad Coach Jones isn’t here because you probably would still be around and the issue wouldn’t be as big–just ask Timmy or Travis. I get a feeling that Coach Mack is going to pull a Dan Kelly and kick your sorry ass off this team.

  34. d1島 August 2, 2008 6:47 am

    Great Morning All.

    Mahalo to Koakane for setting up da Pauhana EIS at Violet’s Grill. Hadn’t been to that place for years; problee make a point to go back again soon.

  35. d1島 August 2, 2008 6:52 am

    sounds like somebody already took da 30 points 👿

  36. Jon August 2, 2008 6:52 am

    Tyler blew it. He got dismissed from the team in the Spring, got himself back on and now this. If he can’t keep his… stuff… in order, he’s not the guy to be the starting QB for the defending WAC champs. Funaki or Alexander at this point.

  37. FloridaTed August 2, 2008 7:08 am

    Morning/afternoon, Tsaiko-Nation and Tsai-Meister.

    It sucks that this soap opera has to play just before camp. I really don’t understand what’s going on with Tyler. If it is only academics, that would be totally irrisponsible on his part. He had ample warnings and already had been suspended. He doesn’t get it?

    His Leadership is now definitely in question and with top notch competition in camp, he’s really behind the eight ball. If one of the remaining three takes the bull by the horns and runs with it, Tylers goose is cooked.

    Somehow I feel that there may be a little more to that story than what’s publicized, but it’s all speculation, without the facts.

    The way I see it now, Funaki may start, but probably Alexander will take over. Kind of strange that we didn’t hear that much about Rausch, but mostly Alex. Wonder if the Tsai-Meister did this on purpose. I wish I could have a peak at his notes.

  38. 702WarriorNation August 2, 2008 7:23 am

    Good Morning Stacyj and Tsai-kos
    Your 343 reply last night, thanks for the clarification. Appreciate your comments which wasn’t the point of my not agreeing.
    My original disagreement referred to your 289 comment – ‘Agree exit8..’
    which I believed referred to exit8’s 288 ‘soap opera’.

    It’s a sad situation, especially since Graunke is truly a nice guy.

    Have a great time off and enjoy your trip but we’ll miss your great posting.
    Great weekend to all and can’t wait for news on the fb camp

  39. Pomai August 2, 2008 7:24 am

    Aftah much consultation wit 2 menehune’s dat come visit me in da hill of WV I goin perdic dat Adam Leonard will intercept two of bowbow’s passses foah yeah count’em two touchdowns. Which will screw up bowbow’s mind so bad dat da geko’s will be held scoreless in da second half.

  40. 702WarriorNation August 2, 2008 7:27 am

  41. tom mui August 2, 2008 7:32 am


    Jimmy Donovan got da book. old songs and cheers from 57 years ago.

    Your favorite cheer required timing – pause at the end of the first two “fight Hawaii – fight”; rapid on the “Hawaii fight, Hawaii fight” and also on the last “fight, fight, fight”

    My recollection – Class of 1954!

    Thanks for the Cheers!

    Much better then those “Go Bows!” and “Raiiiinbooows!!” ones (They should save those for baseball and basketball).

    Also for getting the JUGS machine rolling again. Setting things up is always the hardest. Great Job!

    RE: Graunke.

    Man, all I gotta say is “Lose Money” Was feeling that “On the field” he was going to be tough to beat, but silly me, I forgot about the “Off the field” Graunke.

    BTW, Your last name Lee Loy? … I got a niece up here that is probably known to both you and I if that is the case. She is at a UH Water Polo camp this week and next….sure glad she is going to attend UH!!!

    Laters all, trying to get woman up so that we can go to the beach before it becomes a microwave.

    kope call lattas esme whoooooooooooooosh

  50. trashouts August 2, 2008 8:15 am

    I am personally not worried about our quarterback situation. The areas of concern that I have is on the defensive side at safety. Patek did an outstanding job at that position last couple of years and I am worried about this position being filled with great talent and depth.

    The other position that I am concerned about is the special teams punt and kick off teams. Not the kicker and punter position but the coverage guys and curious to see if they going be all out like last years head hunters. I am concerned with this group because every year it is basically a new team. I hope they are just like years past teams.

    The last position that I am worried about is the running back position. Last year showed how valuable Nate illaoa was to our team in 2006. He could pass block and also run the ball with grace, power and finesse. Last years group was missing the package. We had guys who could block well but not run well. We had guys who could run well but could not block well. Hopefully this gets turned around with our new running attack.

    As for all the “concerns” I have this year, I still cannot that I am nit picking. I believe that all the concerns about this year will be wiped away when we take Florida out of the national title picture one game into the season.

    I want to leave with a famous line of the classic warrior gang movie from the 70’s……
    “Warriors come out to playeeeeay”

  51. eighty8 August 2, 2008 8:17 am

    Take a look at Tyler’s myspace page and in particular read the comments that others have put on his page. From there you can get sort of an idea of what kinds of issues he is facing.

    Regarding the size of the place. I called it the “Little Out-House on the Prairie.” We had way too much class for a joint like that. BHF2 told me you wen throw a dart on the map and we ended up in skoshi city! Nevah had da Lead foot Tita there to step you feet!

    Great to finally meet the *alledged* Wafan. Good fun talking story with him about the Pacific North West. So happy to hear that the settlers are no longer being run off the land by land barons and Indians like they did on the Ponderosa.

    Ahh, the pen…
    Speaking of Parker, I wonder why Ferd writes such volatile pieces on Michelle now? I remember when she was playing well and he and the rest of the media world put her high on the thrown and proclaimed her queen. Now, it’s off with her head. I don’t think she wrote anything about herself. I believe it was the media. She just played golf. Which is what she is still trying to do. Well, trying to play good golf anyway. He could have written about Parker. Same town, same school, same course…but he didn’t. He wrote about Michelle. No one wrote about Parker. Michelle’s fault, of coarse…par for the course.

    Now it’s not like Ferd is the one getting written about is it? No way he has any skeletons in his closet to air. Seriously, it’s not like he has anything improper in his email. Who cares? Unless…no way…huh?

    The pen may be mightier than the sword, but Ferd proves it is definitely doubled edged and double faced when it comes to selling one’s opinion.

    I sure hope Parker doesn’t come in second or chokes, or flounders because the perfect writer and his pen, as you know, can be mighty big…

    IMHO of course!
    Go Parker!
    Go Michelle!
    Go Warriors!

  63. A-House August 2, 2008 10:11 am

    Ferd Lewis:

    I was disappointed in your artilce about Michelle Wie.

    You made much of Parker’s success, but where was Parker at age 18? Was he already a stated professional? How many years did he languish in the Nationwide and other tours before making it to the PGA?

    I agree, it’s nice to see him do well – for Hawaii, but the only mention is his college; not state of birth.

    This is also true of most Hawaii athletes when they make it to the highest pro level – not state, but college/university attended.

    On the mainland, an “Eh, brah!” & shaka does catch someone’s attention when they are from Hawai’i.

    Met Aaron Francisco today & asked him if he read Stephen’s blog on the HA site. He said he doesn’t have much time to read the paper due to work. He’s on the field a lot; I’ll see if I have some good pics of him.

    One of the last plays of practice: Hercules playing center for Kurt Warner. Kurt completes pass to Larry Fitzgerald. Touchdown!

    They were using staff to play center for Matt Leinart some of the time. Lyle Sendlein (63) also getting more work.

    Did you see the mix-up in yesterday’s Advertiser?
    It’s in the B section, page 5, I think.
    They blended a Times ad for chicken with an ad for a futon. So the futon is on top of a chicken.
    The ad folks are joking: What came first — the chicken or the futon?

  80. Da Punchbowl Kid August 2, 2008 12:04 pm

    Tyler – you seem to be getting a lot of chances, which you don’t seem to be taking advantage of. You gotta make the best of what you’re given. Take care of your problems and get back to camp pronto! We need your game experience.

    Is Colt going to play against the Colts today or tomorrow? I tuned in to ESPN earlier and the Hall of Fame was being broadcast, so I guess Colt will play tomorrow? If so, what time and what channel?

  91. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 3:23 pm

    I’m glad Colt says he is not nervous about the game and he’s memorizing the plays. Hope he doesn’t puke.

    DPK, you got your a/c on? Pretty hot and humid outside. Mine is on. HECO bill for the month of June was $395. Ouch. Of course, it was for 32 days but still…

  94. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 3:31 pm

    ahhh, hubby just emailed that Colt’s game will be shown tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. on channel 1008.

    Mine was $411 and I dont have A/C

  96. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 3:35 pm

    $411??? for how many days?

    you should switch to solar water heater and compact fluorescent light bulbs.

  97. curveball August 2, 2008 3:37 pm

    Got the bulbs no solar yet…I have a little hot tub issue(;

  98. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 3:42 pm

    Hot tub? If you get solar, you can also use electricity as a default when it is cloudy. With both, you can heat enough water for your hot tub.

  99. curveball August 2, 2008 3:45 pm

    I know…just have not done it yet …its next on the list…..right after I go freeze some beer…………..

    too bad no pupus! grrr

    I’m getting hungry.

  109. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 4:03 pm

    Is the recipe for beer complicated and do you need any special equipment?

  110. curveball August 2, 2008 4:08 pm

    Its not need 5 gal buckets…a few speacial tools, not can buy the supplies in mapunapuna at the beer place,Home Brew In Paradise. It cost about $33 for 5 Gallons once you get set up..Its also fun…

  111. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 4:11 pm

    how do you store the beer after it is made? 5 gallons is a lot of beer. do you have to keep all of it in the fridge or can it be stored outside the fridge?

  112. curveball August 2, 2008 4:14 pm

    You bottle it and store it in a closet…..THEN YOU CAN FREEZE IT…. it ends up costing about .50 cent a bottle maybe I will put something up on my blog Monday about it or you can check my blog and email me…

  113. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 4:15 pm

    you have a blog? OK, let me check.

  114. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 4:21 pm

    hey, curveball, looks like it’s your third day blogging. Welcome to the blog club! I left a comment.

  115. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 4:27 pm

    I imagine you would have to sterilize the beer bottles before use, right? How do you seal the bottles?

  116. curveball August 2, 2008 4:27 pm

    Responded to yours also…..

  117. curveball August 2, 2008 4:30 pm

    You buy new caps and reseal the bottles..a little tool does it for you…

  118. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 4:33 pm

    veddy interesting. I might brew beer if your recipe is not too complicated.

  119. curveball August 2, 2008 4:38 pm

    Hi gigi, hi curveball. Da beer sounds good, but I can’t hold my liquor any more.

    Laundry day since hubby is going off to SD tonight. Been a busy day today. Took car in for service, took recyclables (sp?) to redeem, went back to school shopping and going out to dinner tonight after I get this load in the dryer.

    Gigi – re: electric bill – be glad you don’t have a pool. My mom’s bill used to be the same as ours and she didn’t use her A/C as much, but the pool cleaner thingie was on for about 3-4 hrs per day. My last bill was over $400 again. Good thing school starts in a week and a half. 😀

  124. jm2375 August 2, 2008 5:50 pm

    rats. gigi did an esme.

  125. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 5:54 pm

    Checked back in and lo! jm is here.

    Yeah, I’m glad I don’t have a pool to keep clean. Used to have a pool when I Iived in a condo and used to swim every week. Now, I never swim cause I no longer like the water.

    The last time I was at the beach was in 2000 when I took a Canadian friend to Hanauma Bay. Didn’t go in the water, just baked in the sun. Ugh.

  126. Garret (Whittier) August 2, 2008 6:04 pm

    Colt is mentioned here.

    <blockquoteThe Redskins had a robust draft class of 10 rookies — an unusually large haul for the franchise — and many will be featured tonight for the first time. Offensive lineman Chad Rinehart and quarterback Colt Brennan are among them.

    “The younger players we have, they dominated at their positions at the college level, and they have to now learn how to dominate at the pro level,” Zorn said. “And there’s a learning curve.”

  127. Garret (Whittier) August 2, 2008 6:06 pm

    BYU’s coach has quite a different attitude towards recruiting, even Manti.

    What makes BYU head coach Bronco Mendenhall laugh?
    At the recent Mountain West Conference Football Media Days in Las Vegas a few weeks ago, Mendenhall tapped his own funny bone. While talking to reporters about recruiting, Mendenhall repeated his stance that because of the unique nature of BYU, players really have to sell themselves to the program, not the other way around. That includes some of the nation’s top recruits like Hawaii’s Manti Te’o and Timpview’s Xavier Sua’filo.

    “The players left that haven’t committed are probably the highest level of recruits we’ve ever had a chance to get, collectively as a group,” Mendenhall said. “With the higher level of interest around the country, that could determine the time frame when they’ll commit. We hope they choose BYU and convince us why we ought to take them.

    “They have one program telling them to come here and we promise you this, this and this, and another coach telling them, ‘Why should I take you?'”

    Mendenhall laughed at his own statement.

    “I laugh because it sounds so bad,” he said. “That’s the way it is.

  128. d1島: August 2, 2008 6:24 pm

    Florida gets a commit from a C/O ’10 QB

    Here’s a quick glance at Trey Burton, a 6-foot-3 rising junior out of Venice. Runs the 40 in 4.5 seconds? Check. A HS junior who benches 280 pounds? Check. Carries a 3.5 GPA? Double check.

    Now where are his stars? None of the recruiting sites have more than one star for this 205-pounder, but sounds like he’s legit if West Virginia, Miami and Florida State were recruiting him as well. This could be the future, folks. As expected, the recruiting of a quarterback always evokes the most conversation. The Gators don’t have a quarterback in the 2008 freshmen class because Cam Newton and John Brantley need time to develop behind Tebow, but maybe Burton’s the next UF great.

  129. d1島: August 2, 2008 6:30 pm

    UGa or UF? Despite their expected finish atop the SEC media poll, Florida finds itself ranked behind Top-ranked Georgia in the first USA Today poll. Who’s really #1? This Orlando-Sentinel blogger calls it a toss-up.

    The reasoning should probably land somewhere in the middle, which, in my mind, would make UF and UGA equals going into the season. I think it’s too difficult to pick a favorite among these two this early, which shows that the Nov. 1 in Jacksonville couldn’t come soon enough. Either could easily win the SEC East.

    Of course, Aug 30 comes before Nov 1….

  130. Garret (Whittier) August 2, 2008 6:33 pm

    Report from the South Florida Sun-Sentinel about Miami’s scrimmage today. Bess apparently did not catch a pass in the scrimmage.

    Most of the running plays were given to rookie Jalen Parmele, and he continues to impress with his burst, as well as his ball-catching skills. FB Reagan Mauia continues to drop passes and is probably losing his grasp on a roster spot to FB Boomer Grigsby, who catches everything in his vicinity.

  131. Garret (Whittier) August 2, 2008 6:38 pm

    Palm Beach Post has a report on the scrimmage also. The reported what the lineups were in the walk-through before the scrimmage, and I’m glad that Reagan was on the first team.

    Rookie guard continued to line up on the right side, with T Vernon Carey on his right and C Samson Satele on his left. T Jake Long and G Justin Smiley continue to hold down the left side.

    Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams alternated at TB, with Reagan Mauia at FB. Ted Ginn Jr. and Ernest Wilford lined up at WRs.

  132. Garret (Whittier) August 2, 2008 6:41 pm

    Samson got mentioned once during the scrimmage…as with all offensive linemen, he was only mentioned when he did something wrong.

    Henne takes one coverage sack, and Samson Satele snaps the ball over his head out of the shotgun formation on another play.

  133. Garret (Whittier) August 2, 2008 6:43 pm

    Reagan was mentioned..

    The series ended with FB Reagan Mauia dropping a screen pass, making Henne 1-of-5.

  134. Garret (Whittier) August 2, 2008 6:44 pm

    One last article that mentioned Reagan.

    All three quarterbacks have been inconsistent this week, but their receivers aren’t doing them any favors. In Saturday’s scrimmage, receivers and running backs dropped six passes, and they were blatant drops. Jalen Parmele in the flat. Reagan Mauia on a screen pass. Ted Ginn Jr. drops a first down, and Anthony Armstrong has a sure touchdown go right through his hands on a deep bomb. Even two defenders got into the act, with Quentin Moses and Charlie Anderson dropping two easy interceptions.

  162. chawan_cut August 2, 2008 8:27 pm

  163. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 8:30 pm

    stupid dog next door is barking non-stop now. It was so peaceful this afternoon.

    feel like calling the cops.

  164. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 8:32 pm

    anybody see The Dark Knight yet? Hubby will see it tomorrow. I’m not interested.

    I think you have to call the humaine society..they deal with it

  166. las vegas August 2, 2008 8:34 pm

    bad boys, bad boys, what you gonna do?
    what you gonna do when they come lookin’ for you?
    Cops, brought to you on location, in Foster Village.

  167. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 8:35 pm

    no, humane society does not deal with barking dogs anymore. Read about it in the papers last year. Gotta call the cops.

  168. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 8:36 pm

    it’s a small, white dog with a shrill bark. Very irritating.

    wish the owners would get rid of it.

  169. chawan_cut August 2, 2008 8:37 pm

    ok, tombo just told me that the colt starting the 2nd half news is old news.
    i’m slow.

  170. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 8:38 pm

    then the owners will say, what about your cats? They make doodoo in our yard.

    Then I will reply, How do you know the doodoo is not from the other cats in the neighborhood?

    blah blah

  171. las vegas August 2, 2008 8:38 pm

    go next door and tell the neighbors to quiet their dog.
    if no one home, quietly inform dog that you’re Korean and might want a late night snack.

  172. Izzy August 2, 2008 8:40 pm

    Time to learn another fight song:

    Hail to the Redskins

    Some history of the song:

    Now SING!>

  173. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 8:42 pm

    haha I don’t feel like climbing their high staircase in the dark.

    and hard to talk to the dog when it is on the opposite side of the house in the lanai.

  174. las vegas August 2, 2008 8:52 pm

    and hard to talk to the dog when it is on the opposite side of the house in the lanai.

    I was only kidding about the puppycide death threat.

    ps the dog may not have understood anyway

  175. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 8:56 pm

    their house is completely dark. Owners are out. No wonder the dog is barking.

  176. las vegas August 2, 2008 8:59 pm

    now is your chance, put on da BLACK muu muu and sneak over

  177. las vegas August 2, 2008 9:00 pm

    and make UNKO in the yard.
    let them try figga what cat wen do that!

  178. J August 2, 2008 9:00 pm


    peanut butter.

  179. WarriorFan August 2, 2008 9:02 pm

    I say put the dog in a pot….probably just the right size…..slow simmer….aysoos!

  180. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 9:04 pm

    the owners live on the 2nd floor of the house. The bottom floor is rented out to two brothers. For some reason, I hear a wahine moaning and groaning in the 1st floor room opposite my patio.

    sheesh. this is too much. first da dog, now a wahine.

  181. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 9:06 pm

    hahaha. this just gave me a brilliant topic for my blog tomorrow — the virtues of peace and quiet.

  184. las vegas August 2, 2008 9:11 pm

    Ralph is awake!

  185. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 9:15 pm

    J, why peanut butter? to eat with dog meat?

  186. WarriorMojo August 2, 2008 9:25 pm

    Gigi, you get mean when you drink, eh?

  187. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 9:29 pm

    actually alcohol makes me mellow…

    the after-effects of drinking beer don’t last long, however.

  188. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 9:30 pm

    Well, Favre is not accepting GB’s offer. He wants to come back.

    There goes my bet.

  189. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 9:35 pm

    Favre will get $12 million per year just sitting on the bench.
    He’s got 2 years left on his contract.

  190. Da Punchbowl Kid August 2, 2008 9:59 pm

    Is it a GOOD kind of moaning and groaning? Maybe you should put on a black muumuu and go peek in the window… You can never be to sure about these things. 😉

  191. Da Punchbowl Kid August 2, 2008 10:01 pm

    The Adventures of Ninja gigi… Tonight’s episode: “Good groan, bad groan?”

  192. LizKauai [BELIEVER] Asus August 2, 2008 10:04 pm

    Anyone know how the Jr. Lifeguard Champs went today???

  193. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 10:05 pm

    Obscene moan, methinks…

    but did not hear a guy moaning with her.

    anyway, she has stopped moaning. Meanwhile, the blasted dog keeps barking.

  194. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 10:08 pm

    hi Liz, how did the Bahai meeting go today?

  195. LizKauai [BELIEVER] Asus August 2, 2008 10:12 pm

    Hi gigi!
    Fantastic! There is so much positive stuff… of course I talked about Tsai-ko culture 😉

    But I am so tired from night fishing last night! But #2son was happy. I fried the halalu for him at 1:30am!

  196. J August 2, 2008 10:13 pm


    Sneak the dog some peanut butter. Will be so pre-occupied eating it, won’t be able to bark. Just don’t shove it up the poor dog’s nose.

  197. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 10:14 pm

    no wonder you got just 30 mins of sleep, Liz.

  198. Esme August 2, 2008 10:15 pm

    *cracking the Tsaiko clubhouse door open a bit, smiling sheepishly and waving*

    Uhhh … hi, gang. Hi, ST. I’ve had to be away for so many days. Am I still welcome here? …

  199. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 10:16 pm

    J, is that a tried and true method of making a dog shut up? He stays on the 2nd floor lanai, which overlooks my patio on the ground floor. Kind of hard to get up there.

  200. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 10:17 pm

    Hi esme. Waiting for you to do an esme. lol

  201. J August 2, 2008 10:17 pm

    Can’t remember if this has been posted before:

    Another Reason Why I Don’t Keep A Gun In The House
    Billy Collins

    The neighbors’ dog will not stop barking.
    He is barking the same high, rhythmic bark
    that he barks every time they leave the house.
    They must switch him on on their way out.

    The neighbors’ dog will not stop barking.
    I close all the windows in the house
    and put on a Beethoven symphony full blast
    but I can still hear him muffled under the music,
    barking, barking, barking,

    and now I can see him sitting in the orchestra,
    his head raised confidently as if Beethoven
    had included a part for barking dog.

    When the record finally ends he is still barking,
    sitting there in the oboe section barking,
    his eyes fixed on the conductor who is
    entreating him with his baton

    while the other musicians listen in respectful
    silence to the famous barking dog solo,
    that endless coda that first established
    Beethoven as an innovative genius.

  202. Esme August 2, 2008 10:19 pm

    *hearing no objections … or at least ignoring any that may be raised, she continues…*

    Anyway! I’ve missed you guys. Sorry I’ve been off-blog for a few days. My sister and her brood are still visiting. BUT … tonight they are staying with my mom and dad! So I finally have the computer room to myself. … Hmmm. What kind of mischief shall I get into first? Hmm … 😉

  203. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 10:20 pm

    J, ta ta ta daaah.

    ta ta ta daah.

    the 5th symphony?

  204. Esme August 2, 2008 10:20 pm

    J, that’s freakin’ hilarious. 😆

  205. J August 2, 2008 10:23 pm


    Production Assistants have been known to sneak PB to barking dogs in neighborhoods where filming is going on (Shhh). Of course this was after knocking on doors to see if the owners would cooperate by keeping their dogs inside or calming them down…

    I’ve used a water gun. The dogs were surprised and stopped after a few times. Pavlov…

    How’s your arm? Or your aim?

  206. gigi-hawaii © August 2, 2008 10:25 pm

    That’s exactly what I do. Close all the windows, put on the a.c, but I listen to Bobby Darin, not Beethoven.

  207. Esme August 2, 2008 10:25 pm

    gigi – we used to give our dog PB when we gave him his pills. he loved it. someone once told me that they gave a dog a PB sandwich and stuck it on the roof of its mouth. Worked like a charm.

    d1 – so by the end of the season, everyone in Hawaii will know the words to Redskins fight song?!! Yes!!! Go Skins. I get a free ringtone with my new phone. Wonder if AT&T has the UH fight song. If not, maybe the Skins?

    Caught idea from Izzy’s post #172..!

    Like Kinda Shy reminded some of us Tsaiko table attendees at Thursday nite football fundraiser, we UH fans need to learn more/different cheers. It was so amazing to hear Surgar Bowl Georgia fans with so many different, interesting ones and for different situations. Izzy’s post reminded me how we could be more organized about it. Perhaps we (w/help of Tsaiko band, Tsaiko IT experts, etc, for instance?) could “teach” by posting cheers separately on U-Tube and words somewhere where Tsaikos & lurkers & Warrior Nation alike could review at their leisure.

    Especially now BHF found his song book…
