    The Meditteranean calzone at the Pearlridge Down to Earth makes for a pretty good lunch.

    Like the John Sebastian song.

  33. NaKoaMike March 22, 2016 1:57 pm

    Great to have you back Stephen.

  34. A-House March 22, 2016 2:07 pm

    Hiho good neighbor and great to see the blog up and running.

    Was checking from 3/18/16 for your post – that was 8 weeks.

    Thanks for the visit tho only Midori met you at the door.

    Yep, that was ST in the bright red shirt enjoying a BB game at the SSC – very short scan, but no mistaking ST.

    and despite the losses, the men and women basket ball teams can be greatly proud of their accomplishments in 2016 — ditto for the women’s VB team!

    now, onto football – will we see the same upset in Sydney on 8/27/2016 as did the men’s BB team? great expectations.

    Hello all TSAIKOS around the globe!!!!!!!!!

  35. madeinhawaii March 22, 2016 2:19 pm

    Nice to see you back and the blog back, too.

  36. Kapahulu March 22, 2016 2:22 pm

    Welcome back Stephen!
    Great to have you back.
    Congratulations to the UH Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams, they made us proud. It was awesome seeing the community get excited about UH Sports again.

  37. oldie March 22, 2016 2:35 pm

    Welcome back, Stephen!

    Don’t realize how much you miss something until it’s gone. Glad you’re back.

  38. A-House March 22, 2016 2:43 pm


    Did we miss any news, good or bad, about the football team?

    Saw your “twit” about a HS All-American punter/kicker committing to UH – me no have twit so could not see your comments.

    Happy days are here again!!!!!!!

  39. Na Alii Pride March 22, 2016 3:09 pm

  42. ron March 22, 2016 3:54 pm

    Didn’t realize as a lurker how much I would miss you! I would check every day for your return so I got to know the new recruits bio’s by heart. Take care of yourself and listen to your Cardiologist!

  43. Aku Head March 22, 2016 3:55 pm

    Welcome back Stephen! Glad all is well as we missed you!!!

  44. Annoddah Dave March 22, 2016 4:37 pm

    ST: Good tidings on your return.

  45. mano1 March 22, 2016 4:38 pm

    Aloha and Welcome back Stephen! Included you in my prayers….got a great answer. Take Great Care, smell the roses!

    Time is the most precious resource we have…..can’t buy it, can’t borrow it, can’t make it, can’t store it…and we have no clue how much we have….use it wisely my friend.

  46. mo808 March 22, 2016 5:21 pm

    Hui, welcome back Stephen! You looking fabulous too! May you live in good health and happiness for many many many more years to come! We missed you, but you needed this break to heal up. You have a great family and a wonderful wife in Wena! My thanks to God, your doctors, and your family for your return to the blog!

  47. turfwar March 22, 2016 5:23 pm

    Welcome back ST. Here’s hoping you don’t miss another recruiting class for the next 20 years. Staradvertiser really dropped the ball while you were gone. Thank god for the online peeps that carried on while you were gone and did a heck of a job. But your stories were very much missed.

  48. Lurker #8 March 22, 2016 5:47 pm

    Welcome back ST!
    You were missed, but glad that you
    Have recovered well.
    Take care of your health!

  49. BigFan March 22, 2016 5:54 pm

    ST, looks like you had most of the regulars checking and waiting for your return. Missed your reports but it was an exciting recruiting season with Rolo. He sure made it easier and added to the excitement.
    Welcome back.

  50. Derek March 22, 2016 6:46 pm

    Glad you’re back and A-OK ST. Take it easy and get lots of rest too. Family time is everything. I noticed on Scout, the Hawaii Warrior network, that there are a lot of 3 and 4 star players that Rolo’s staff are looking at. For this time of the year I have never seen so many prospects. Very excited to see that this staff is working so hard. And so many offers are already made too. Things are looking up!!!!

  51. el burro sabio March 22, 2016 7:19 pm

    Welcome back!

  52. Naks8 March 22, 2016 7:21 pm

    Welcome back. Hopefully one of our boys gets a shot at the pros.

  53. A-House March 22, 2016 7:23 pm

    now, if the baseball and softball teams can turn it around — it will be a hell of a “spring” board into spring practice and beyond

    any more rumors of those who left and want to return?

    rumor will has it Zwahlen will leave — hope not as he is my choice to be #1 QB – will Tuileta try football or stay with VB?

  54. A-House March 22, 2016 7:42 pm

    basketball – both coaches must work extra hard to fill in the many players who will depart including all the seniors – more so if the 4 eligible seniors to be decide to leave

    generally speaking, local HS seniors to be appear to be a good bunch for many sports – year after year, I do hope that they will chose UH over the “flashy” power5s.

    hoping the 10 UH coaches going to Australia with the football team can secure major interest in Australia and NZ for all their sports — heck get commitments!!!

  55. MattyBoy March 22, 2016 8:21 pm
