If you get a chance, check out the Rainbow Wahine softball team’s Senior Day. The doubleheader, which begins at 2 p.m., will be shown on K5.
It is being billed as “Power in Pink,” and the UH players will wear specially made pink uniform as a way to support breast-cancer survivors.
But, no, it does not appear there is an XXL-sized jersey for coach Bob Coolen.

Tank Hopkins, a candidate for a starting cornerback job, is unique, and not just because he no longer wants to be known by his given name of “Melvin.” He wears a padded orange vest during workouts and to classes.

Last year’s inspirational story — Joey Cadiz — is seeking a sequel. Cadiz, a running back who is about 5 f eet 5, earned a spot on last year’ s training-camp roster with relentless work during the offseason conditioning program.
But he missed the entire 2008 season after suffering a torn ACL.
He recovered successfully, and competed in the recently completed spring training.
But Cadiz, for now, is not on the 105-player roster for training camp.
The roster is a work in progress, and there might be some openings. Maybe Cadiz can break through again.
