The Warriors’ offseason conditioning program has ended, but that hasn’t prevented many of the players from still working out. 

Yesterday afternoon, several offensive linemen worked on their footwork and blocking for about an hour. What should be encouraging is that seniors Laupepa Letuli and Brysen “Bulla” Ginlack were leading the way. 

UH’s training camp opens Aug. 4.

Happy anniversary to Wena.

    Happy Anny, Wena and Stephen! 🙂

  10. Justin July 24, 2010 8:34 am

    All of the players should resume workouts regardless if the conditioning program has ended. Matt Barkley is not taking days off.

  11. d1島 July 24, 2010 8:39 am

    40 days and 40 nights left!

    Let’s Go Warriors! Expect a Miracle…

    Happy Anniversary Wena,

    . . . and you too Stephen

    Thanks again for the birthday wishes yesterday. Ooops, and a belated happy birthday to Princess Leila.

    Update. Son did complete the mile swim yesterday, and all of the merit badges he was attempting. Got to see a flag lowering ceremony, had dinner in the mess hall and enjoyed campfire with very enthusiastic camp counselors. Congratulations to all who attended this camp or any one of the four that was offered during the summer. Good to see the leadership skills enhanced in today’s youth.

    The USA Futures are looking for their first hit of the game.

    Jessica Iwata is not in the starting order.

    Wie shoots a -2, ten strokes back of Pressel

  23. Kazz July 24, 2010 9:15 am

    ***Off Topic***

    (carried over from yesterday’s blog)


    I believe Samsung has every right to solicit the Galaxy S or the Samsung “Fascinate” as it will be known on Verizon soon.

    The Galaxy S aka Fascinate (for VZW) is supposed to have the fastest processor on the market at the time it gets released. So, Samsung should have EVERY RIGHT to solicit this phone to iPhone users considering their problems.

    On a side note, I believe Europe’s versions of this phone will have Android 2.2, but for us in the states we shall remain on 2.1.

    But yes, I wrote a little about this phone a few weeks ago because word is that AT&T was planning on “dumbing” down this phone inside and out on purpose as to not threaten iPhone sales due to the speed, OS, and reliability of the Galaxy S aka Fascinate. I wrote how foolish this was as AT&T would be robbing their customers of a better option of a smartphone on their network.

    By the time I upgrade in October, I will still opt for the Droid X. I have never been a fan of Samsung for the simple cosmetic reason that their products tend to have a “cheap” look and feel to them. 😆

  24. Kazz July 24, 2010 9:16 am

    That’s why I don’t like golf.

    How does one shoot -2?

    Happy Anniversary Wena and Stephen. Good to see that the Warriors are still working during their “break”. We need that kind of dedication across the board.

    Law firm is buying up rights to newspaper articles so they can sue blogs like this one that re-post articles. So, I’m going to stop posting article excerpts now…

    Borrowing a page from patent trolls, the CEO of fledgling Las Vegas-based Righthaven has begun buying out the copyrights to newspaper content for the sole purpose of suing blogs and websites that re-post those articles without permission. And he says he’s making money.

    Newspaper Chain’s New Business Plan: Copyright Suits

    * By David Kravets Email Author

    Steve Gibson has a plan to save the media world’s financial crisis — and it’s not the iPad.

    Borrowing a page from patent trolls, the CEO of fledgling Las Vegas-based Righthaven has begun buying out the copyrights to newspaper content for the sole purpose of suing blogs and websites that re-post those articles without permission. And he says he’s making money.

    “We believe it’s the best solution out there,” Gibson says. “Media companies’ assets are very much their copyrights. These companies need to understand and appreciate that those assets have value more than merely the present advertising revenues.”

    Righthaven CEO Steve Gibson is embarking on a copyright trolling litigation campaign

    Gibson’s vision is to monetize news content on the backend, by scouring the internet for infringing copies of his client’s articles, then suing and relying on the harsh penalties in the Copyright Act — up to $150,000 for a single infringement — to compel quick settlements. Since Righthaven’s formation in March, the company has filed at least 80 federal lawsuits against website operators and individual bloggers who’ve re-posted articles from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, his first client.

  28. Garret July 24, 2010 9:22 am

    Geez, I want to limit what I post and then I make a mistake like above…sad. Here is an example of a New Mexico sports blog that was sued.

    Righthaven LLC of Las Vegas, which has been acquiring copyrights to R-J stories and suing alleged violators of those copyrights, last week filed suit in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas against Mark Chavez, whom Righthaven says runs the website http://www.thelobolair.com, which covers University of New Mexico sports.

    USA national team using a lot of their reserves to play their futures team, making the game very competitive.

  39. Bigislandkurt July 24, 2010 9:51 am

    The oline would want nothing better than to prove the pundits wrong. In recent years, we have NEVER had a dominant Oline. Never. We can reminisce all we want about the JJ years, but we struggled during those years too. Granted we had some good players — Manuwai, Hunter, Estes, etc. But as a unit, our oline has been “above average” at best. Never great. I hope this years line takes it as a rallying call.


  40. Matt July 24, 2010 9:52 am

    Uh, game is already over Ralph.

  41. Matt July 24, 2010 9:53 am

    SA website has had the result posted for about an hour now.

  42. al July 24, 2010 10:05 am

    the laws of supply and demand apply to spam, too.

    spam is much more costly here than there. even if you factor in the “fuel charges” for shipping and handling.

  43. al July 24, 2010 10:08 am

    matt…i didn’t have the heart to tell ralphie. although, he’s done that to me with some of the games i recorded.

  44. Shoko July 24, 2010 10:09 am

    I wouldn’t be overly concerned about abusing the “fair use” clause. It seems this law firm, more specifically the Las Vegas Review Journal, are more focused on sending a message to people that republish entire articles, on a regular basis, without providing a reference or a link to the original source.

    A friend of mind who is a sports writer for a local paper told me as long as don’t republish more than half of the story, and provide a link to the original source along with an opinion, you shouldn’t have to worry about litigation.

    However, I have been told by an copyrights attorney, that even posting sources doesn’t prevent a potential lawsuit. He also mentioned that cases such as this are very few.

  45. Ralph July 24, 2010 10:10 am

    what! the game wasn’t live, dang.

  46. Shoko July 24, 2010 10:16 am

    Speaking of Spam. Richard LeFevre holds the world record for eating SPAM by eating 6 pounds in 12 minutes. In my opinion, thats an invitation to a myocardial infarction.

  47. Matt July 24, 2010 10:27 am

    Spam has increased in price everywhere I think. It’s not exactly cheap on the mainland anymore either. I once bought a can of spam at a market in Bahrain during some R and R time when I was in the Middle East. They made me go to a special section of the market and stand in a special line for those who eat pork. 🙂

  48. Ralph July 24, 2010 10:30 am

    Such a waste.

    Should have put Iwata in. At least would have been a 1-1 game eventually. 😎

    I probably would have gotten into it if Michelle Smith shut her trap.

    I didn’t want to say anything earlier, but today she (Smith) made reference to Megan Langenfeld’s 17-pitch dual against “an Arizona batter” in the WCWS…

    Ummm… Miss Smith, that wasn’t an Arizona Wildcat at the plate… IT WAS A RAINBOW WAHINE BY THE NAME OF ALEX AGUIRRE. 🙄

    Jackie Moon says the Na Koa Bowl is going to be like the Flint, Michigan Megabowl. It’s a Megabowl, what’s not to understand? You’re gonna wanna tell your grandkids, and their grandkids, and their grandkids. When they look back in the annals of history, they’re going to be talking about three things: Discovery of Fire, Invention of the Submarine, and the Na Koa Bowl. 😀


    I’m still not sure why they are calling it a Bowl, but Let’s Go Warriors! :mrgreen:

  60. jm2375 (Backflip) July 24, 2010 11:15 am

  63. Kazz July 24, 2010 11:20 am

    Word is Optimus Prime, Bruce Wayne, Captain Crunch, and Bruce Willis will be at the Na Koa Bowl.

  64. Kazz July 24, 2010 11:20 am

    Jesus will return at the Na Koa Bowl.

  65. Kazz July 24, 2010 11:21 am

    The Na Koa Bowl will be the only thing in the world operating on 5G.

  66. Matt July 24, 2010 11:23 am

    Optimus Prime AND Captain Crunch. Awesome. I can’t believe Captain Crunch was never promoted to Admiral after all of these years. Maybe they can invite Captain Morgan too.

  67. Matt July 24, 2010 11:23 am

    They need to invite Chuck Norris. He can roundhouse that debt right back to Upper Campus.

  68. Kekoa July 24, 2010 11:25 am

    If you have one television in the house tuned into the Na Koa Bowl and another TV playing the movie Delta Force 2, you WILL travel back in time.

  70. Garret July 24, 2010 11:27 am


    AT&T has already set the precedent with their previous Android-based phones where they limit their ability to do things that the Android phones on all other carriers can do.

  71. Kazz July 24, 2010 11:28 am

    If you have three TVs in the same house with one tuned into the Na Koa Bowl, on playing the movie “Sidekicks” and the other playing “American Ninja 4”, you will travel FURTHER back into time, to a time that was truly AWESOME…. the time where you are watching the Na Koa Bowl.

    Article about how the schools in AQ conferences could leave the NCAA for football. Two key points from the article:

    1. The courts have already ruled that this would be okay.

    2. Taking football out of the NCAA would mean that Title IX would be a much smaller financial burden on Athletic Departments.

  74. Kazz July 24, 2010 11:31 am

    Go figure… Apple must have been concerned at some point considering the Android OS was doing things that the iPhone has only recently picked up on.

    I’m gonna get a Puka Dog.

    Anyone want one? 😎

    Whitey ~ When I was at the JFK Speical Warfare Center, Ft. Bragg, NC…we would go fishing to relax after training all week.

    Water Moccasin snakes (some call ’em Cottonmouth) were quite common in the area. I spotted one with a frog in his mouth and decided to catch him. After putting a firm grip on the back of the snake’s head (using a Ninja quick move, of course) I managed to get him to release the frog into my bait bucket.

    Not wanting the snake to flash back and bite me upon release, I decided to pour a swig of Jack Daniels down his tube. He went a little limp, and I was able to release him and watch him slither away.

    A few minutes later, I felt a slight nudge on my right boot. Hmmm…there was the snake looking up at me with 2 frogs in his mouth!…Life was good at Fort Bragg, NC. that day.

    Hanapa’a Whitey! Enjoy your fishing trip!

  77. Garret July 24, 2010 11:36 am

    Interesting interview with Chip Brown that goes over the near-merger between the Pac-10 and Big 12 South. One tidbit that was very interesting is that Notre Dame and Texas had conversations about Notre Dame joining the Big 12 (remember, the Big 10 was trying to add both Notre Dame and Texas).

    He feels that Notre Dame is more likely to join the Big 12 instead of the Big 10! One key point that he raises is that Notre Dame could still keep their NBC deal if they joined the Big 12 (since every school can make their own side TV deals) but teams in the Big 10 are forbidden from making their side TV deals for Notre Dame would lose their NBC deal.

    Maybe this is why the Big 12 is staying at 10 teams for now. If they can add Notre Dame and someone like Louisville, they won’t have to raid the MWC at all.

  78. Kekoa July 24, 2010 11:37 am

    Kazz ~ Yeah!…I like one. I was thinking about putting a Puka Dog Hale out here in Kapolei.

    One of the advantages cited for Android developers is that Android phones can add applications sold directly from developers or from other sites outside the Android Marketplace. That is true for *all* Android phones…except those on AT&T. AT&T’s restriction to only official marketplaces works for Apple, but doesn’t work for Android.

  80. al July 24, 2010 11:41 am

    ahouse…it doesn’t look like andre will be released from corn country.

    it is getting late for any last minute pickups. one guy is still sitting on the fence…leonard washington. there are others, but, time is getting tight.

  81. madeinhawaii July 24, 2010 11:48 am


    That #73 about AQ schools taking football out of the NCAA… scary.. without any external policing, teams with $$ will run rampant and it will be hard for UH to find it’s fit… dunno… I can see how saving 75 scholies a year will put UH in the black but…

  82. madeinhawaii July 24, 2010 11:49 am

    ooopps… 85, I mean.

  83. madeinhawaii July 24, 2010 11:53 am

    Will that mean that schools can put as many players on scholarship that they want, for football anyway?

  84. gigi-hawaii July 24, 2010 11:56 am

    Aww, CBS cut off the last few remaining minutes of the Canadian Open, so we don’t know if Dean Wilson won. Damn!

    I believe Dean Wilson has a 4 shot lead, but there’s one more round tomorrow.

  88. Ralph July 24, 2010 12:28 pm

    why would leonard washington sit on the fence and not pick a team, school starts in August for many teams, and if he wasn’t heavily recruited earlier in the year, what makes him think that a lot of schools would be waiting for his decision and not go after another player this late in the recruiting process

  89. Ralph July 24, 2010 12:30 pm

    is LW a second session summer school qualifier?

  90. gigi-hawaii July 24, 2010 12:30 pm

  91. Matt July 24, 2010 12:48 pm

    When I was stationed up in Alaska, we used to go fishing many an afternoon. We had a favorite spot down on the U.S. border with Canada at Dixon Entrance. You could reliably catch salmon and giant halibut there, but you needed a sturdy boat. It was pretty deep too so you also needed a good anchor. We were never ever skunked there, but my favorite place to catch Silver Salmon is a place called Mist Cove over in Chatham Strait. There was so much salmon there, we used to throw some back because we knew we would catch a bigger one and didn’t want to go over our 6 salmon limit. Plus, further north there was a hot spring in the small town of Baranof that we would visit. During the winter you could sit in the hot springs and keep your favorite beverage cold by putting it in the snow surrounding the springs.

    Our favorite place for catching spot prawns used to be in the security zone around the oil terminal in Valdez. We once filled a five-gallon bucket with prawns in 6 hours using just a few pots. Our favorite dungeness crab fishing place was Bostwick Inlet near Ketchikan. One time we caught about 100 dungeness crabs in about 7 hours that we used to feed everyone on a cruise for the crew’s dependents. We took them to visit Misty Fjords national monument; sometimes called Yosemite of the North. Beautiful area of glacier carved fjords with granite cliffs that go 1000s of feet straight up and down. I need to make it back up to Alaska one of these days.

  92. al July 24, 2010 1:26 pm

    ralphie…washington was released from his scholie at usc. he had been ejected for lowering the boom on an opponents family jewels. he was suspended and released for cause. he was a highly regarded player out of hs and would have just two years left. he was contemplating utep and hawaii as possible transfer locales. however, he had been hoping for bigger fish.

    oh, i believe gibber did recruit him originally to usc.

    but, washington’s interest in hawaii or conversely hawaii’s interest in he are purely hearsay at this point. not verified that it is the truth.

    OK, OK, the cloud has not yet cleared, but what the heck is the Na Koa Bowl? I hear tell that Captain Jack Sparrow will be the featured guest!

    Garret: if the AQ schools depart the NCAA for “football only”, why should this affect Title IX? I would think that other sports will be status quo or will this reduce the number of “womens” teams or will “mens” teams be added?

    I think the Justice Department would take a hard look at this and may conclude that the AQ schools are intentionally violating “gender equity” and come down very hard on same. As a concerned citizen, a class action suit in not out of the relam.

  95. MichiganWarrior July 24, 2010 1:40 pm

    Happy Anniversary!!!

    Good to hear that our line is working on some details like footwork. Just hoping all of their work will pay off this season. If they can be competitive, and even win against those teams they are supposed underdogs, this will show them that their off-season work has paid off. We can then hopefully look forward to near 100% participation in the coming years. They’ve seemingly worked harder this off-season than any other season in recent memory. I’m really hoping to see some positive results!

    Matt ~ My son recently retired from the Army and shares ownership of Yukon Electric company, an installation company in Anchorage.

    He’s built a 2 bdr cabin for fishing right on the banks of the (what else?) Fish River, near White Mt., Alaska. When he is guiding hunters for Elk or Caribou, he uses this cabin as his base camp. It’s Easier to troll up or down river for fish, and to hunt on either side. Then, when they make a kill, they can transport it easier back by boat.

    He just started building another cabin on acreage he owns on the Kenai. Great for fishing either Salmon there, or Halibut from out of Homer. He really loves it up there, but lately has been planning to start another company here at home. He’ll be home to thaw out for Christmas and lay down some plans.

    I can understand that urge you have to return. Alaska is truly the last frontier.

    Gigi ~ You haven’t been doing your golf homework!

    Kazz ~ A negative number in golf is a good thing. Dean Wilson is doing very well. He finished strong today, and is perfectly positioned to win tomorrow. The announcers were giving him lotsa props about being from Hawai’i. Good to see another golfer from home on camera and turning positive attention on the islands.

    If football is outside of the NCAA, then Universities may need to provide 85 less scholarships to women’s sports. That would eliminate the financial burden of supporting that many nonrevenue sports–I’m guessing that at UH the main women’s sports would be fine (basketball, softball, soccer, etc.) but sports like sailing and tennis might be in jeopardy. Just my guess, that is not a certainty.

    If the football scholarships did not count towards Title IX, it would be a big boost to sports like men’s volleyball. Many schools have had to cut a men’s program and/or cannot add a new men’s sport because they would have to add 1-2 women’s sports to balance things out with Title IX.

    The BIG downside to this is that some schools with major budget problems (NMSU, SJSU, SDSU, etc.) could end up cutting a lot of women’s sports. With Universities getting squeezed and not wanting to subsidize their Athletic Departments this much (SDSU gets $15 million from the University and student fees!), there would be a push to cut as many nonrevenue sports as possible. This could be addressed by having conferences require a certain number of nonrevenue sports for all members…but the schools drowning in debt would push to reduce that number all the time.

  102. gigi-hawaii July 24, 2010 2:30 pm


    Despite David’s job situation, we are still donating $50 to UH Foundation every month via credit card debits. Half to the Tsaiko athletic fund and half to the Psychology Dept. I figure we can take a tax deduction at the end of the year.

    Capt Jack Sparrow is the character in the movie, Pirates of the Caribbean. Johnny Depp stars in that role. The next installment is being filmed in Hawaii right now.

    GRM ~ Actually the name comes from the *Puka* in the hot dog bun. Instead of the bun being split, there is a ‘puka’ on the top of a large bun.

    The idea is to put whatever kind of condiment you enjoy with your ‘dog’ inside the bun. Then you place the dog inside the puka. They have many more flavors of mustard, relish, or other exotic sauces you can put inside. No messy sauce squeezing out the side of the bun.

    Of course there are also all types of dogs available as well. Polish, Italian, Bratwurst, Portuguese, just to name a few.

    Matt, my fishing buddy, don’t be giving away those fishing holes!!! It’s against the Fishermen’s Association code of conduct!

    Btw, when we were hungry for King crab down at the Homer Spit, we’d make a tangled ball from fishing line and put a tin of dog/cat food with some punctures in the middle, attach it to a fishing rod and reel, and toss it out. Wait a bit and reel it in. Guaranteed to have a couple of King crab attached. The taking of King crab in the area was shut down years ago, don’t know if they’ve reinstated it. Lots of razor clams too, at Clam Gulch on the way to Homer from Soldotna. Fresh King crab and clam chowder…ahhhhh

  109. Florida Ted July 24, 2010 2:58 pm

    Hi guys! This is Florida Patti. I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything, but unfortunately I have some bad news to share. Even though Florida Ted (aka Theo) was a Warrior at heart, he was not able to beat his fight against cancer. He passed away peacefully on Thursday afternoon (Eastern time) while at home with myself and his family. He fought until the end and was kind, courteous and respectful through it all. I’m sorry to share this news on the blog, but thought you guys would want to know. He still kept up with sports until the very end, and you guys meant the world to him. If anyone would like to contact me directly, my email is aboblondi@aol.com. Please join me in wishing Theo, A hui ho! God bless you all! With love and Aloha, Florida Patti

  110. BG July 24, 2010 2:59 pm

    G’day everyone!

    Belated birthday wishes for LK and the Princess…two very special folks!


  111. BG July 24, 2010 3:01 pm

    BTW ST…what’s your plan to get Wena on the blog to see her congratulatory messages??????

  112. BG July 24, 2010 3:04 pm

    Didn’t see Florida Patti’s message till now…this has been such a sobering year for Tsaikos.

    At a loss for words…bbl

  113. gigi-hawaii July 24, 2010 3:05 pm


    I am sorry for your loss. Although I did not know Ted well, he seemed to be a very likeable fella. A hui hou, Ted!!!

  114. Shoko July 24, 2010 3:12 pm

    Florida Patty,
    I didn’t know Theo, but I extend my heartfelt regards in his passing. May he rest in peace knowing he put up a good fight like a true Warrior and lived life to it’s fullest. Deepest sympathies to his family and friends and wish them well in their time of grief.

  115. madeinhawaii July 24, 2010 3:14 pm

    If there is no more NCAA football.. then what happens to all the Classifications? No more Divisions? Anyone plays anyone?

  116. madeinhawaii July 24, 2010 3:16 pm

    Florida Patty…
    I’m so sorry to hear about the passing of Ted… I did enjoy his posts and looked forward to meeting him one day. My sympathies and condolences to the family… we will all miss Florida Ted’s posts.

  117. Pomai July 24, 2010 3:35 pm

    A real Warrior Ted!

  118. Matt July 24, 2010 3:36 pm


    None of those spots except for the first one are secrets and notice that I never said exactly where that one is. It is a very specific spot and Dixon Entrance is a big area. 😉 Mist Cove is a salmon hatchery, or at least used to be, and Bostwick Inlet is heavily crabbed by the locals from Ketchikan. Don’t have to worry about the shrimping spot in Valdez. It’s in a 24-hour Security Zone around the oil terminal. We just happened to be enforcing that security zone when I dropped a shrimp pot to see if anything was down there and bam what do you know. 😀

  119. Garret July 24, 2010 3:42 pm

    Florida Patti,

    Deepest condolences to you and the rest of your family. I treasure the time that I got to spend with Ted in person and in our e-mail and blog conversations, he was such a warm, considerate, and fun person. From what he told me, I think that it is clear that he led a full life and had amazing adventures and fun along the way.

  120. Slugger July 24, 2010 3:45 pm

    Florida Patti,

    I’m so sorry to hear of Ted’s passing. He was a true Warrior. Much aloha to you and your ‘ohana.

  121. Matt July 24, 2010 3:46 pm


    Your son is pretty smart. That’s a lot better than hauling your kill out a couple of miles. I never really got into hunting while I was up there, but the guys on the ship would go out hunting from time to time. Funny that you mention Homer. A guy that used to work with me is now a charter fishing captain out of Homer.

  122. BG July 24, 2010 3:49 pm

    Just back for a minute…

    Matt…don’t take me seriously…just kidding around. You brought back some incredible memories. Just like the posts Florida Ted used to so eloquently make all the way from the east coast…a devout Tsaiko…one who has been missed for the past year. Should we ever have a Tsaiko rollcall, it’ll bring tears to my eyes to hear his name without a response. Like Long Time UH Fan, a devout Warrior supporter and even better friend.


  123. d1島 July 24, 2010 4:00 pm

    Deepest condolences to Florida Ted’s Ohana.

    He was a really good guy, a true Tsaiko.

    He’ll be missed.

  124. OldDiver July 24, 2010 4:06 pm


    I don’t understand why football leaving the NCAA would mean a University is not required to meet Title IX requirements. If USC left the NCAA in football wouldn’t the USC football team still be a part of USC the University?

  125. chopsueyboy July 24, 2010 4:11 pm

    Florida Patty

    Our deepest sympathies and fondest Aloha to you and your family.
    We’ll miss Ted’s view of our Warrior World.

  126. al July 24, 2010 4:14 pm

    a copy of my email to Patti and the Domay ohana.

    Dear Patti,

    Myself and our fellow Tsaiko’s will truly miss Theo’s (Florida Ted) presence here on the Warrior Beat. He always brought and shared such a great perspective to this blog and our lives with his wit, humor, and passion for the program in spite of the thousands of miles between us. I recall him wishing that he could one day sit among us at the Aloha Stadium.

    Perhaps, now he will be in our midst come game day Saturday. Yup, he and Fred (long time uh fan) will be at every game cheering the Warriors on and dancing to the intro tune of Hawaii Five-0.

    Please share my heartfelt condolences and sympathy during these tough times for the Domay ohana.

    Know that he is in Heaven and at peace.

    God Bless your ohana,


  127. Kendall July 24, 2010 4:24 pm


    There are two schools that are looking at Leonard Washington, they are Hawaii and UTEP. Both schools have coaches that have coached him before Gib Arnold and Tim Floyd. I believe Floyd was the recruiter of LW to USC. The nice thing about LW is that he is transferring because of differences with the coach Kevin O’Neil. While most transfer are looking for more playing time, he is just looking for another place to play.

    LW comes with baggage. His famous cheap shot to Blake Griffin in the family jewels, along with academic issues.

    I like the gamble on LW because the guy is a beast. He is 6’7″ 230lbs. He is built like a rock. He can play inside and outside (hitting the occasional outside shot). I like him in the 4 position because he would go around big guys and outmuscle little guys.

    He can’t play until the 2011 season but that would be good wherever he goes because he could get his academics and anger management in order during that time.

    I like him. He would be a star in the WAC. To me he is a proven “player and worth a gamble.

  132. Shoko July 24, 2010 4:52 pm

    I heard alot of stories on the various blogs describing O’Neil, like Washington, having problems with controling his anger. So it would be fair to say, perhaps that was a reason why Washington and O’Neil had a confrontation. Two alpha males with anger issues spells disaster. However, skills or no skills, I wouldn’t take the chance as team cohesion is pivotal on the court. Washington might fit in nicely with Gib and Co., but should Washington face a situation where his temper gets the best of him, it would look bad, not just for the school, but the entire team. One thing I noticed with young troubled college players is that they usually find trouble in groups. Bad behavior and attitude can be contagious.

  133. Bulla July 24, 2010 5:20 pm

    Condolences to Florida Patty, really enjoyed Ted’s posts

    LEONARD WASHINGTON : It seems like so many programs have players with baggage in baskeball. In the WAC New Mexico State is a classic example.I have never seen so many players in trouble with the law or academic issues as NMS.

  135. Kekoa July 24, 2010 5:35 pm

    Florida Patti ~

    BG called me a few minutes ago to tell me of the sad news from Florida. I’m at a loss for words. Theo was such a well respected member of the Tsaiko Ohana. His opinions on sports were rarely ever off the mark. He is already missed.

    Please take care Patti, and do keep in touch. Prayers and my deepest condolences to you and your family.

    Aloha FT, until we meet again.

  136. Ralph July 24, 2010 5:38 pm

    Happy Anniversary Wena and ST.

Jessica hasn’t started in any of the games, she is 0-2, with a ground out in the first game that moved 2 runners into scoring position, and in the second game she struck out in the team’s 5-4 victory of Canada. Both at bats came as a PH. she did not place in todays game against the USA national team

    Florida Patti, I am so SORRY for the lost of Florida Ted as he will be GREATLY missed !

    I never met him but his post’s were AWESOME to read as he really brought thoughtful
    opinion and insights to Warrior football as well as UH athletics !

    I loved his phrase “The Tsai Meister” as I created a shirt to Mr. Tsai in HONOR of Florida Ted catchy nick name to Stephen and sent it to him embroider as I hope he would wear it in HONOR of this GREAT gentlemen as he will be TRULY miss !

    Thank you for his LIFE and the many hearts he touched on this blog as I am so sad of his passing as he is in heaven with ALL the great ones who has left us over the years.

    “As sure as night, life’s troubles come as sure as day, they will past. But surer still that endless joy, when heaven awaits as we reach it at last”.

    Aloha Florida Ted and MAHALO for your GREATNESS !

    I’m sorry that I didn’t have the pleasure and honor of meeting him in person.

  149. roysan16 July 24, 2010 6:31 pm

    Florida Ted family,

    I’m very sadden to hear about Ted’s passing. To me, and to others, he was one of the good guys. I liked him. I liked how we intertwined on this blog. Sometimes it may have not been harmonious, but it was great to have someone looking over your shoulder, like Florida Ted, and reading his rebuttal to my post and others. I miss that. Florida had some signature phrases and words that made one think. He had special uniqueness. And, though, I never met him in person, I can tell he commanded a lot of deserving respect. Florida Ted will be dearly missed. And at this time I express my condolences to the family.

  150. Pride. July 24, 2010 6:37 pm

    We are truly touched with your sad news of Ted’s passing.

    We were truly blessed that we got to meet him in Orlando before the Florida game. It felt like seeing/meeting a long lost family member who loved everything Hawaii. I had never seen a picture of Ted, but I knew instantly that it was he approaching me at the front door.

    We appreciated that he drove over an hour just to meet us at the Golden Corral which will now have a new meaning for us. We will forever hold his memories dear to our hearts. For all the victories in 2010 and beyond, this one’s for you, Ted, my friend!

    Our deepest sympathy to you and family for your loss.

    Much sadness in the A-House family tonight.

    But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive [and] remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first Then we which are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

    meanwhile in washington…

    just got off the hook with hawaiianbod’s mom and she reports that both father(hawaiianbod) and son(kea) are on the road to recovery. albeit a slow and arduous process.

    steve is improving daily although he still requires dialysis. the guy is believer and a battler amd has gone through many bouts, yet, he continues to hang tough guided by the light.

    kea is a candidate to go from icu to a regular room in a day or two. his vitals improve each day.

    so keep the prayers coming folks.
    believe in the miracle.

  161. al July 24, 2010 9:11 pm

    my hawaiianbod story…

    a few years ago, yes it has been that long ago, we had a cattle call at thelma’s filipino cuisine restaurant. there must have been at least eight of us that day. of course like true tsaiko’s we had the “all-u-can-eat” lunch buffet.

    when the time came to pay the bill the filipino waitress said, “oh, somebody already take care of it.”

    at first she was sworn to secrecy by the payer not to tell. we finally managed to squeeze it out of her. she said, “steve paid for it with his charge card.” naturally we all assumed that it was steve tsai.

    i had called steve tsai to thank him and he was just as surprised. we later found out from the restaurant that it was “hawaiianbod” who had called ahead to treat his tsaiko buddies. yup steve was laid up again and unable to make an appearance but had it in his heart to buy lunch for us, in spite of the fact that his medical bills were piling up.

    that’s the kind of guy he is.

    …nuff said.

    my parents both worked for that thurston family who long ago owned the honolulu advertiser. my mother was interviewed by mike tsai for the final aloha edition. too bad the editor’s chopped her story. interesting it was that they worked their at the estate and became lifelong advertiser readers. very loyal as they never onced subscribed to the old star bulletin.

    matt and bg, fishing in the northland can become contagious. just ask Col A House. I have been coming here for over 25 yrs every summer and each time I look forward to returning. You are not going to catch fish on every trip, but the northland is a special place which lets you relax and get your mind ready to face your everyday trials when you return home.

    Condolences to Florida Patty on Theo’s passing. I, too, have enjoyed his insightful posts and have missed them the past several months.

    Florida Patti,

    More than his insightful comments, I will miss the stories he shared of his past. Have many new friends now in Singapore and the stories that Ted shared was helpful in relating to them. Too, you seem at peace with how things went and your thoughtfulness in sharing with us of his passing has touched us all. God bless you.

  184. mctruck July 25, 2010 5:01 am

    Dear Florida Patti,

    My heart felt condolences. Florida Ted(Theo), was truly a Warrior and I am certain that the, “BIG TEAM” in the sky has Ted on their roster.
    I don’t think he will ever miss a UH-Warrior football game no matter where the game is played.

    God bless you all, Florida Patti…..and Florida Ted, from me and mine, here in Marshall, Texas.

    Florida Patti,

    Condolences to the passing of Florida Ted. Enjoyed reading his insightful
    posts, for he was a true WARRIOR.

    Good Sunday morning Tsaiko Villagers. My heart still aches at the passing of Florida Ted. Isn’t it amazing how opinions shared on this blog have led to virtual relationships over the internet?

    Like sitting at the kitchen table with the Sports section open, and a cup of coffee. We are a room full of Tsai-ko’s expressing our passion for Warrior fb. I will always have room at my table for Theo (FT) and Fred (LTUHF).

  191. Maverick July 25, 2010 7:01 am

    Ted always prompted the term “God Speed recovery” for all.

    We exchanged emails in the past, along with postings on this blog, as his input had the quality of cherishing his thoughts and knowledge to help extended our views in a more optimal perspective. I have been thinking of him often lately, and my deepest sympathy and aloha goes out to you and family members.

    Ted now has the best seat in the house for the warrior season(s).

    God bless.

  197. Da Punchbowl Kid July 25, 2010 7:20 am

    Aloha Patti –

    Deepest sympathies to you and your ‘ohana on the passing of Theodore Domay. Florida Ted was truly one of a kind: a former Hawaii resident and German expat from Florida who had a passion for all things Hawaiian, especially the UH Football team.

    As expressed by other posters here, Ted was along time poster who loved his long distance relationship with all Tsaikos. We will miss his sincere, humorous and passionate posts. UH Football has lost one of its biggest fans.

    Through emails and phone calls with Ted, I will remember a man of profound intellect, global vision and great Aloha. We are all diminished by his passing.

    May the Lord welcome him into His loving arms, and be with you and yours at this time, Patti.

    I join my fellow Tsaikos in wishing Ted the fondest Aloha.

  205. myki July 25, 2010 8:28 am

    Good morning to all!

    So nice to be at home and to catch up with all that has gone on for the past couple of weeks. So sorry to hear about Florida Ted’s passing. Our deepest condolences to Patti and family. Interestingly, one of the first comments I made upon returning home was to ask sj how Ted was doing, as we hadn’t heard anything for a while. Like many others we had not met him but enjoyed reading his posts.

    Happy to hear that Hawaiianbod and his son are doing better. Our prayers continue to go out to them.

    Belated thank you for all the well wishes received on my birthday. Truly another year older and deeper in debt, but it was worth it.

    I have really missed your fellowship and look forward to being with you all again. sj and I plan to join some of you at Nancy’s in a few hours. See you soon!!

    Congrats to George Gusman who started 2010 officiating the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. It was an exciting week for him and his family. George then followed that up during his first year as the head baseball coach at St. Louis by winning the ILH championship. Although the Saints struggled and lost in the state Semifinals against Baldwin, I still think that George did a terrific job at Kalaepohaku.

  207. Dennis Halloran July 25, 2010 10:53 am

    We will miss FLorida Ted. Our prayers are with his ohana

    I really appreciate what you post here,very fresh and smart. One problem though, I’m running Chrome in Linux and sections of your content are a little misaligned. I recognize it really is not really the typical setup, yet it is always a thing to keep in mind. Hope this will help and keep up the high quality writing.

    Hi, how should I deal with a snoring problem? This summer I’m going to this summer camp where I’ll live for 3 weeks. Everyone will share one room with a roomate. Last year (I went to the same camp) my roomate was really nice, but she did mention that I snore and it kind of kept her awake the first night at camp. This year,how should I handle my snoring problem? Should I just tell my new roomate right off the bat that I snore? And what do I do if it keeps her awake at night? Thanks.

    I dig this article! Really informative, I enjoy you taking a stance where almost all people today will probably shy away. It is very easy for people to hole up behind their sites and merely sit back and attack other people and operate like web thugs, but you seem to have poise and sophistication that nearly all writers don’t have. Keep it up!
