DeMello leaving KITV

Word on the boulevard is that Rob DeMello, KITV’s weekend sports anchor, is leaving the ABC affiliate for a similar position at KHON.

DeMello has developed into a top sports reporter. We wish him the best.

* * * * *

Today’s football practice (7 a.m. to 9 a.m.) comes with a PG-13 rating because of violent content.

The Warriors will put on the pads, and there promises to be hitting.

* * * * *

We’ve got six tickets to today’s baseball game. During today’s football practice,  I’ll give two tickets apiece to the first three people who yell at me: Gimme the tickets!

    Good morning Tsaikos…

    If I yell ‘gimme the tickets’ from TX, would you give them to A-joe and A-sports? 🙂

  7. 99club April 3, 2010 2:03 am

    PG-13? Careful with the audio, some of the language might up it to an ‘R.’ 🙂

  8. 99club April 3, 2010 2:11 am

  11. Bulla April 3, 2010 3:28 am


    ok, woke up to the sound of falling raindrops in makakilo, the rest of oahu is probably flooded 🙁

    first day of pads, should be very very interesting to say the least. main goal is to get in, get out, with no injuries……

    take an umbrella and see you at the field, under the Tsaiko tree…. is that the one DPK ‘marked’???? oh well…………….

  12. Bulla April 3, 2010 3:53 am

    i’ll be the first to admit i am no volleyball guru, but i catch a game here and there, and was wondering…………does Walker have the most service errors on the team? the guy is a stud, don’t get me wrong, but it’s what i call the babe ruth syndrome…….either it’s a home run or bust……….noticed at the LBSU game, and then again last night in the 1st match at the most critical juncture…whew…..

    just a thought……….ok, 2 hours 18 minutes til the D line is on the field, 1 hour 33 minutes before we pick up the beast and get him some ‘vittles’ and drop off at UH…………anyone anxious out there? haha….. GO WARRIORS 🙂

  13. Bulla April 3, 2010 4:36 am

    5:00 am, time to roll out the door and up to Manoa…..GO WARRIORS 🙂

    that being said…..have a safe and happy day folks….especially those young studs out there in football land!!

  25. Bigislandkurt April 3, 2010 6:42 am

    There was always a reason for watching the amount of hitting that goes on — Injuries….and UH has always been good for some injuries. Let’s hope the coaches keep things in check and make sure these bradduhs don’t get too nuts. I know it’s football and all, but we no need any injuries.


  26. Kekoa (iPhone) April 3, 2010 6:43 am

    Coach Bulla ~ Must be prowling the sidelines with asst.Tsaiko Coach D-1 & KK. Thanks for the article on the returning home boys.

    The hunger these young Warriors have will pay big dividends for this season of battle. Along with them, Ryan is back on the Aina…nuff sed!

  27. wafan April 3, 2010 6:50 am

  33. mctruck April 3, 2010 7:51 am

    Watching on the NFL network,(path to the draft), and am seeing more hamstring injuries in the,(40).
    I’m wondering why there’s a premium put on big guys doing the forty??, how often you gonna see an O-line/D-line guy going full trottle for forty-yards in real game situations?….I don’t think so???!!
    I think the standard should be lowered to like 20-30 yards, that’s more realistic in my opinion.

  34. Da Punchbowl Kid April 3, 2010 8:45 am

    Good Morning Gangeez! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Whole lotta hittin’ goin’ on! No reports from the Tsaiko network?

  36. NorthShoreFan April 3, 2010 10:20 am

    Guuuud Morning Peoples!…
    Wet n windy on the NorthShore….but guud day for football and baseball.
    Got lucky last night as the Warriors beat Gonzaga 3-1.
    Both starting pitching was “lights out” for the first 5.
    I vote Gonzaga third base, Sean Wilson, as the mvp for us…his booboos opened things up for us.
    Linsky was not his usual self but then he was unlucky as a few of the hits were of the infield variety and frustrates you. “Excuse me” tweeners really inflated the hit count. He hung tough and got some timely defense when it counted. Looks like this will be a good series and tune up for next week WAC opener with Fresno.
    UH batters need to get more agressive on 2-0 and 3-0 counts. One thing about Kolten is he doesn’t cheat himself on swings when he’s up there.
    One at bat must have really disappointed him. Tried to call time out but was a bit too late but the ump didn’t give it to him and he struck out on that pitch.


    Note to Ji…stay one more year and let Coach Gib develop you. I feel you got some potential to do some damage on the court…but need some PT and coaching.


  37. A-House April 3, 2010 10:28 am

    Wow, is it a usual slooooooow Saturday or everyone waiting for ST’ report from practice?

    San Diego played the UHVB tough last night – tho Midori says UH seemed quite out of sync and reason for close scores.

    Great job by all the winter sports “academic” honorees – tough to just get 3.0 without sports!!

  38. NorthShoreFan April 3, 2010 10:46 am

    Slow Saturday?…big gap on post….helloooo!…anybody home?

    Waiting for report on first day in pads….U guys pau eat?…

  39. jm2375 April 3, 2010 10:56 am

    Good morning Tsai-kos!

    Great games last night by both teams, but yes, they vb team seemed out-of-synch at times, esp in the first game. I kept wondering where the defense went.

    Had a great time at the game, but the girls were asked to stop their shrieking cheering by the people sitting in front of us. I guess they were damaging their eardrums. 😈 The girls were, to say the least, disappointed. Guess we need to find different seats tonight.

    Had the pleasure of sitting next to the TSupreme Commander for parts of 2 games. He went to sit in the VIP section, but came back to enjoy the antics of the psycho Tsaikos.

    Best wishes to chawan as he leaves for the East Coast for a month!

  40. NorthShoreFan April 3, 2010 11:10 am

    jm2375…need to bring some ear plugs for the old ones who can’t appreciate fan Tsaiko support..das one problem with da “fans”..

    Last night at the the beer started to make it way through the system, some fans were on the Gonzaga thirdbase guy and yes, it was loud and sometimes funny. Might have accounted for all the error he made…

  41. Kekoa (iPhone) April 3, 2010 11:13 am

    Rasu Begasu ~ WARNING!…put the finishing touches on your root cellar down on the farm. Diana and her Hanakeawe ohana will be invading your peaceful village in June.

    Mahalo to Stephen for the tickets!

  45. curveball April 3, 2010 12:17 pm

    Beautiful morning at Ching field to watch the Warriors. Its a bit to early to say much about individual players, but there is great emotion on the field. I would say the defense is ahead of the offense at this point which is the same as last year. The defense is definitely more together as a group and emotionally fired up. The practice is much more organized with little wasted time. On the 11 on 11″s I would say the QB’s looked about equal. No one really stood out at QB at this point. Defense pretty much dominated the 11’s. I did notice that the Beast was in the offensive backfield on every play he was in. He is not going to have to many offensive linemen as friends.

  46. d1島 April 3, 2010 12:18 pm

    Good stuff
    – LCB position looks deep. Davis, Ornellas pretty solid.
    – Good looking rotation at DT; 3 deep maybe.
    – Run game. OL getting into guys pads; RB hitting the line with purpose.
    – Graves looks like he can push the back-ups.

    Other than good stuff
    – Deep post coverage
    – LB’s gotta fill better
    – Pass pro
    – Other frosh QB’s

  47. d1島 April 3, 2010 12:22 pm

    Great turnout of Tsaikos

    Grandma Pestana

    Sorry if I forgot anyone else….

  48. d1島 April 3, 2010 12:25 pm


  49. Jason April 3, 2010 12:27 pm

    Slugger was there at practice as well. And Pride joined us at Big City Diner for breakfast. It’s a real privilege to just hear him talk about his stories as a UH player, and to pick his brain.

    curveball and d1shima pretty much summed up the practice today. Defense is definitely ahead of the offense, but it’s still early, I expect that the offense will improve.

  50. Pomai April 3, 2010 12:30 pm

    Just returned from practice en pau breakfast after. Has some good hitting going on, whole team looked good for only the second day. Noticed more energy from the coaches down to the players, hope they keep it up. I pretty much watched the QB’s and IMHO it is wide open, liked both Moniz and Graves, both had a good spin on the ball. Wideouts look good, Green will be a big plus this year.

    Had a great breakfast with curveball, slugger, Myki, sj-macro, Koakane, Pride, Jason and Ralph. Good food, good fun and very good conversation.

    Think my eyes need a little rest from all the work today.

  51. Kazz (blkberry_storm) April 3, 2010 12:38 pm

    Dunnachie has a pal in Tim Grasso.

  52. d1島 April 3, 2010 1:07 pm


    Nevah see that one coming….

    Maybe Robert won’t be making any more KKall appearances?

    Good Luck Rob DeMello.

  53. Kekoa (iPhone) April 3, 2010 1:09 pm

    Great reports from the Tsaiko Sports Network. Sounds like da Beast has found a ‘grazing’ spot in the offensive backfield. Coaches Beware!

  54. d1島 April 3, 2010 1:09 pm

    …maybe they bribed him with an iPad?

  55. d1島 April 3, 2010 1:10 pm

  63. wafan April 3, 2010 2:17 pm

    Yay for the ticket winners!!!

    Cheer for the rest of us — no need scream. I think that part is already covered.

  64. Kazz (blkberry_storm) April 3, 2010 2:18 pm

    To add to the practice notes, the team was already doing organized warm-ups 30+ minutes prior to the scheduled start time of practice with Heffernan leading the way.

    Now, I’m not driving no bus or an 18-wheeler. I don’t have a CDL.

    Just stating what I saw and I NEVER saw that in years past.

  65. wafan April 3, 2010 2:18 pm

    Good to hear the Beast is feeling right at home!


    Just have to remember our guys are not the enemy.

    Ok. I can understand how WE have 9 runs.

    But to allow 5?

    C’mon Steph!!! Close it out!!!!

  70. Derek April 3, 2010 2:30 pm

    Move over for Hoosiers 2, the real version. Butler takes out Michigan St.
    The difference, points on turnovers. Best player on the floor, Gordon Hayward, 6’9″ sophomore. He has a great future in the NBA and will be Jimmy Chitwood on Monday in the final. Did you notice the kind of defense these teams played. That’s why they’re in the final four. Butler’s head coach, Brad Stevens, only 33 is one cool customer. So calm, so confident, so positive. He knew his team could match up well with anybody. Whoever wins the next game, I’m pulling for Butler all the way. And another thing, the Bulldog mascot was the best. After the game, the dog sits down and doesn’t even move and stays still inspite all the excitement. Unbelievable!

  71. 99club April 3, 2010 2:35 pm

    The Butler did it. 🙂

    Did you see that Punahou grad stroking the 3’s at half time? Not too shabby!

    Mahalo to all for the practice updates! Every practice should start with “We open up against USC.” Talk about motivation.

  72. Kazz (blkberry_storm) April 3, 2010 2:37 pm


    Beating SC would be nice.

    Making and WINNING a bowl game is WAY better. 😎

  73. Kazz (blkberry_storm) April 3, 2010 2:40 pm

    It’s interesting how my cellphone reception isn’t great as I’m hiking right now, but I can still browse online pretty well.

    The weather up here in the Koolau range is sketchy but clearing up a little. Still think we shouldn’t be out here.

  74. Kazz (blkberry_storm) April 3, 2010 2:42 pm

    I wanna know what BLVD Stephen is hanging out on.

    I wanna know stuff like when are my damn state returns are gonna come in!!! 😆

  75. Bulla April 3, 2010 2:42 pm

    Great seeing all the Tsaikos at Ching field this morning, although wet, no rain for the 2+ hours there, God’s blessings….. Rumor had it that DPK was holding down the fort at the Tsaiko tree at the practice field, but i didn’t want to miss a minute.

    The team is coming together, IMHO, each unit will have to gel as a group and then collectively as a whole. Rotation at DT is 3 deep, Coach Tony is trying to create a paradigm shift where the DT’s are in attack mode, thus constant pressure on the QB at all times. DE’s looked good, on plays to the outside they were getting pinched, but that can be remedied very easily with better ‘play recognition’ when they’re on the field.

    Mahalo for the kind words on ‘the beast’, he has to adjust and funnel his energies since he will be sitting out this season, and there’s nothing anyone can do about it…but he tries to make the most out of his situation. He played almost every offensive position this week on the ‘scout’ team against the D, so he’s getting a good appreciation of everyone. When he does get his reps on the D line, it’s either do or do not, there is no try. He is in good shape, and tells me that Coach Tommy is always making me do extra things………..haha, the lucky one ryan is, haha.

    Warriors have some work ahead of them, but we have to start somewhere…i overheard someone say that ‘you play how you practice….’, so at least we can see more hustle on the team at Aloha Stadium maybe?


  76. Bulla April 3, 2010 2:43 pm

    good luck to rob demello,

    he is a class act, i’ve known his dad more than 30 years, and that guy IS a nut, but Rob survived his childhood and has come a long way. he will do well, anywhere he goes.

  80. 99club April 3, 2010 2:57 pm


    I agree with the bowl goals, but beating USC on National TV to start the season would be, to paraphrase our Vice-President, “…*****’ great!”

    Sizing up this year’s schedule, I’m sure of a bowl trip for the Warriors. Which game clinches the bowl? Who knows, but I’m glad both La Tech and NM St. have new coaches this year.

    Winning pitcher: Stephanie Ricketts

    Glad they won and I felt it was gonna be a shootout of sorts, but NOT a come back from behind to almost win type scenario for NMSU.

    In retrospect, it MIGHT have served our ladies a better purpose to lose this game in that fashion to act as a nasty reminder of what weaknesses they still have after a pretty decent defensive outing against SJSU last week where the errors were drastically reduced.

    I’d assume Parnaby is up next in about 20 minutes for the second game of this doubleheader.

  84. Kazz (blkberry_storm) April 3, 2010 3:05 pm


    I’m still of the mind that if we beat SC that early on and go on to have a 9-4 season or a 10-3 season that by December our upset over SC would be forgotten and that would be assured by the national media.

    The only way the SC win would benefit us immediately is if we go on to be 12-0 after that.

    I’ll never forget what the media did to Boise State after THRASHING Oregon last season. “Oh it was early in the year blah blah blah”…

    College football is a GREAT!!! But the politics and the $$$$$-mandated interest in it makes the saying of “let them play the game” look stupid.

  85. d1島 April 3, 2010 3:09 pm

    We’re at this point in the range where DEATH is to your left and your right with a few missteps.

    Oh well… 😆

    Besides I may completely lose reception soon anyway. We’ve passed the three mile marker of the Manana trail.

  87. NorthShoreFan April 3, 2010 3:18 pm

    Good to hear the “Beast” making himself at home behind the line of scrimmage. I think we saw some of that last time at Aloha Stadium.
    That being said and knowing it is early in the preseason camp, I hope the Oline don’t make it a habit of letting people into the backfield!.

    Like the wiseman from up Makakilo side said…”da Oline betta be ready!”
    Prophecies from the hill top……..

    That link to NMSU web stats is not as friendly as UH webstats.

    I was LATE to practice, so I slipped in ‘under the radar.’ It was fun seeing Darius Bright haul a few in and #35 with his catch.

    Always fun to hang out with the Tsaikos. I walked home from Ward, meandering through Ala Moana Center. Not as strenuous as Kazz’ hike.


    You should have the girls sit with Rawson’s brother! Can you get tickets in the student section? Just don’t sit too close to the Aunties; they might not appreciate it. See ya there!

    From Game 1:


    The University of Hawai‘i softball team (26-11, 4-0 WAC) launched four home runs and held off a hard-hitting, opportunistic New Mexico State team (17-14, WAC 0-4) to capture the series’ opener, 9-8. Katie Grimes, Jessica Iwata, Jenna Rodriguez, and Kelly Majam all hit home runs, while sophomore pitcher Stephanie Ricketts (12-6, WAC 3-0) earned a complete game win.

    Ricketts gave up eight runs—five earned—on nine hits with six walks and two strike outs in the win.
    The ‘Bows jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the top of the third. Two of the runs came off of a home run to centerfield by Grimes. The homer drove in Traci Yoshikawa, who started the inning by absorbing a hit by pitch. Later with two outs, Iwata drilled a double down the leftfield line and eventually scored on an RBI single to center by Melissa Gonzalez.

    Grimes came up clutch again in the fourth when she knocked in UH’s fourth run of the game on an RBI single to center that scored Alex Aguirre.

    The Aggies cut UH’s lead to 4-2 in the bottom of the frame. NMSU’s Hoku Nohara and Tiare Jennings both drew walks and Brittany Clifton cleared the bases with a double.

    Hawai‘i responded in the top of the fifth by scoring three runs. Iwata led the inning with a drive that sailed over the left-centerfield fence. It was her sixth home run of the season. Gonzalez kept things going with a single to center. After an infield pop-up, UH’s Rodriguez drove in pinch-runner, Brynne Buchanan, with her fifth homer of the season, extending their lead to 7-2.

    NMSU battled back in the bottom of the fifth, cutting into the ‘Bows lead again. Kylie Randall and Kandis Jones started the inning with back-to-back singles. Both came home on Nohara’s three-run home run that decreased the Aggies’ deficit to 7-5.

    The ‘Bows’ got two of the runs back in the top of the sixth on Majam’s 19th home run of the season. Majam’s opposite-field drive, scored Kanani Pu‘u-Warren, who was hit by a pitch earlier in the inning, giving UH a 9-5 lead. The home run tied Majam with former UH All-American, Kate Robinson, for second in the UH single-season record book. It also extended her current hitting streak to 12 games.

    The Aggies’ didn’t back down, erupting for three unearned runs in the bottom of the sixth, to cut UH’s lead to 9-8. Lauren Morizi led off with a single through the right-side of the infield and moved to second on a walk to Teresa Conrad. After a strike out, Jones hit a grounder to first, but a fielding error allowed both Morizi and Conrad to score. Ashley Maroda then came through with a single to centerfield to drive in Jones. Ricketts then got a pair of fly outs to right to end the inning, clinging to a one run lead.

    But in the seventh, both teams were held off the scoreboard in quick innings, preserving Hawai`i’s win.

    It marked the sixth time this season that the ‘Bows have hit at least four home runs in a game. The season record is five at UNLV on Feb. 19. Hawai`i has now hit 71 home runs as a team through the first 37 games. The school’s record of 84 was set in 2007.

    The Aggies’ Carissa Theis (5-5) suffered the loss, giving up nine runs on eight hits through 5.1 innings. She had three walks and three strike outs. Alex Newman and Torrey Schroeder combined to throw the final 1.2 innings of the game, without allowing a runner to reach first, with Schroeder string out two batters in the seventh.

    Kelly Majam sitting on 19 home runs on the year. Traci Yoshikawa, Amanda Taualii (3 run homer), and Katie Grimes (2 home runs) got the HRs.

    Wahine finish NMSU series at Las Cruces tomorrow.

  135. Kazz April 3, 2010 5:57 pm

    I expected a shoot out to open the series and it happened. Well, not really as NMSU almost came from behind to win game one.

    I expected Kaia Parnaby to have a better outting considering the tough game she had against SJSU although we won that one 7-3.

    ***BEST AND MOST ENCOURAGING MOVE*** = Amanda Taualii to the bottom of the order. Yeah it sounds bad, but the result was STELLAR. A three run homer and a double and batting 5 for 5 on the night in the second game after struggling in game 1. Let’s see if this continues for her. Kudos to Coach Coolen for pulling the trigger on that one.

  139. Richie April 3, 2010 8:21 pm

    Thanks for the updates on the starters. I am a bit surprised that Tuipulotu is not in the starting rotation. Did he show up for Spring Ball out of shape or something? He handled USC offensive linemen for two years at Arizona and USC is our first game. I am sure that Kamalu Umu will also push the starters on the end positions.

  140. BleedGreen808 April 3, 2010 8:33 pm

    Through all the crap that people spew about these student athletes, one thing that never gets lost is that the REAL aloha from the REAL fans is never ending and we in Hawaii truly know how to send off our senior student athletes off in style and in class.

    Game 2 review

    LAS CRUCES, N.M.—The University of Hawai‘i softball team (27-11, 5-0 WAC) launched a total of eight home runs in tonight’s two Western Athletic Conference games and held off hard-hitting New Mexico State (17-15, WAC 0-5) to sweep the series’ opening doubleheader, 9-8 and 14-3. UH’s Stephanie Ricketts and Kaia Parnaby both earned complete game wins, while Katie Grimes led the home run barrage with three homers tonight at the NMSU Softball Complex.

    GAME 2
    Hawai‘i 14, New Mexico State 3

    The Rainbow Wahine captured the second half of tonight’s doubleheader with a 14-3 win over the Aggies. The ‘Bows hit four home runs for the second straight game and for the seventh time this season. Amanda Tauali‘i and Yoshikawa both hit one a piece, while Grimes hit a career-high, two in the game. UH also tallied a team season-high 19 hits in the game.

    Hawai‘i’s starter, Parnaby (14-5, WAC 2-0) tossed a complete game, scattering eight hits and giving up three runs. It was her 14th complete game of the season. Parnaby walked one and fanned 11 Aggies—one short of her career-high.

    The ‘Bows got off to a fast start, posting four runs in the top of the second. Aguirre led the inning off with a single to right-centerfield. Yoshikawa then executed a sacrifice bunt to push Aguirre to second base. Pu‘u-Warren was then hit by a pitch and Amanda Tauali‘i followed with a three-run blast over the centerfield fence. Grimes then hit her second home run of the day to push UH’s lead to 4-0.

    Hawa‘i added a run in the top of the third on Tauali‘i’s fourth RBI of the game with single to short that allowed Aguirre to score from third. UH led 5-0 going into the bottom of the third inning.

    NMSU answered right back, scoring a run on an RBI single by K Jones that drove in Teresa Conrad, cutting UH’s lead to 5-1.

    The ‘Bows got the run back in the top of the fourth, to go up, 6-1. Jessica Iwata started the inning and the rally with a single to left. After a pop-up to short, Jenna Rodriguez got a single through the leftside of the infield to put runners at first and second. Another pop up to short gave UH two outs, but Traci Yoshikawa came through with a single to left to score Iwata from second.

    The Aggies’ responded by scoring two runs of their own on a pair of solo home runs by Nohara and Conrad in the bottom of the fourth.

    Hawai‘i countered by bringing nine batters to the plate and scoring two runs in the fifth. Majam crossed the plate on an RBI single by Rodriguez and later, Iwata scored on a wild pitch to push UH’s lead to 8-3.

    Tauali‘i started another UH rally in the top of the sixth with an opposite-field double to left. After an NMSU pitching change, Grimes reached first on an error on the second baseman that allowed Tauali‘i to advance to third. A pop-up to short gave the ‘Bows two outs, but the inning continued on another error on a ground ball to the third baseman that scored Tauali‘i. Later, with the bases loaded, Rodriguez drew a walk that forced Majam home, increasing UH’s lead to 10-3.

    The ‘Bows then blasted two more home runs in the top of the seventh. Yoshikawa led the inning off with a homer over the left-centerfield fence. Two batters later, Tauali‘i laced a double to the right-centerfield gap and then Grimes hit her second home run of the game and third of the day to centerfield. It was Grimes’ seventh round-tripper of the season. After a ground out to short, the ‘Bows continued their scoring with a two out rally. Iwata doubled to left-center and advanced to third on a Gonzalez single. With runners at the corners, Rodriguez ripped a double down the leftfield line to score Iwata and push UH’s lead to 14-3.

    New Mexico State went through five pitchers in the game. Torrey Schroeder (6-5) took the loss, giving up five runs on five hits with two walks and a strike out. A. Newman also threw two innings, giving up one run on five hits with a strike out. S. Byrne got an out for the Aggies, giving up two runs on one hit with a walk. Williard gave up two runs on two hits in 1.1 innings, and Schueler closed the game, giving up four runs on six hits.

    Tauali‘i, who dropped in the line-up in today’s second game, led the ‘Bows at the plate, going 5-for-5 with a home run, two doubles, four RBI, and three runs scored. The five hits was a career high for Tauali‘i. Yoshikawa was 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI, Rodriguez was 3-for-5 with a double and tied a career-high with three RBI, and Iwata went 3-for-6 with a double and three runs scored.

    Hawai‘i and New Mexico State conclude their three-game series tomorrow with a single game starting at 2:00 p.m. (MST).

    Yup, no school does Senior Night like UH.

    Question of the night – who gave the cheerleaders the weekend off? Games are just not the same without them. Several of them were in the stands to cheer on one of their own during the plaque ceremony.

    Some of the older (quiet) fans are not appreciative of A-joe and Stretch’s “encouragement” of the opponents. 👿

  150. Bigislandkurt April 3, 2010 11:51 pm

    Hey! Isn’t that the same quiet older fans who don’t want fans to be fans at Aloha Stadium too?

    Let da fans be fans. That’s the beauty of having a home court advantage.


  151. Slugger April 3, 2010 11:56 pm

    People were remarking on Stretch’s eye chart up where I was sitting. They thought it was funny, especially when Stretch pointed to the 4th line that spells, “O U T …”


    The young girl screaming on the broadcast is not one of our young’uns. They were behaving tonight; they brought signs. Even Rawson’s brother was silenced tonight. Before the game, he had a sign that said, “I can’t YELL tonight. Yell for me.” (or words to that effect) Maybe it was because his parents were there? Or did someone complain? (UCSD?)

  152. Slugger April 3, 2010 11:58 pm

    Happy Easter to everyone!


  153. jm2375 April 4, 2010 12:00 am

    Slugger – I wonder which NFA told Rawson’s brother he couldn’t yell.

    Apparently, the section which the Tsaiko encouragers inhabit was populated by quiet season ticket holders until this year, when we showed up!

    BIK – I saw that to on the replay, didn’t know that showed him on TV and I was there behind him.

  157. Garret April 4, 2010 3:22 am

    I think that it is crazy that the Athletic Director at Kansas made $4 million last year! In 2010 he will “only” get his $900,000 salary and won’t get those special bonuses.

    Perkins’ pay is the equivalent of $85,000 a week — about 10 KU students’ average yearly tuition payments. What’s more, $4.4 million appears to place Perkins far beyond that of any athletic director in the nation.

    “It is what it is,” he said. “It was all based on when I got hired, negotiated from day one. … It was all part of the deal of me leaving Connecticut to come here.”

  158. Kekoa (iPhone) April 4, 2010 4:49 am

    BIK ~ I do believe that the NFA rep kept his distance from us last night because he felt intimidated by our rather XL physical presence. The Tsaiko size group we have of more than a Baker’s dozen caused them to only ‘threaten’ ejection from the arena.

    JM’s youngsters are caught up in the spirit of college sports. Yet the people who sit near them are bothered by their excessive cheering. How dare they stifle their enthusiasim for the game and their favorite players!

    Each of the Senior players who came by to talk story with us spoke of how encouragin’ it was to hear the constant flow of ‘banter’ coming from da Tsaiko faithful. I know it gets inside the heads of our worthy opponents, it’s supposed to!

    I know the “proof will be in the pudding” down the road, but after checking out practice first hand yesterday, I must admit I am very “inspired” by the efforts of newly named Defensive Coordinator Dave Aranda.
    I, for a long time have been convinced in the convictions of Nick Rolovich on offense, however, somewhat “suspect” of Aranada.

    Well, NO MORE.

    I mean the guys are flying around, there’s a new intensity about them, there’s a sense of physicality, a whole new energy….I LOVE IT

    Happy Birthday to our resident Mel Torme look-a-like…Mr. Koakane.

    Thousands of Wessai children are still celebrating his retirement. That dreaded visit to the principal’s office is no longer a queasy, stomach churning ordeal.

    So take some time out of your busy schedule today, lift a glass of your favorite beverage, and give the retired DOE administrator the heave a birthday toast!

    Bulla – although we’ve heard lots of stuff about Ryan’s football skills, what is his major and what’s he taking this semester and in summer school? What are his post-college football plans – try out for a pro team or apply to graduate school or go to work?

    NON-SPORTS TOPIC – I need an O`ahu reference for a Mac speci a list – not only to help me purchase hardware and software but also someone with teaching/tutoring skills to show me how to use all the equipment and media devices. My days of reading manuals are gone so I need to have someone with great patience to literally take my hands and place them on the IPhone or the IPod or the Ipad or the laptop and teach me.

    Unfortunately, DrDoc does not have the time nor the patience to do this – even if he had any experience with Mac products which he does not. I expect that I’ll need someone starting in this summer for approximately two months after that. I assume that I’ll require approximately five hours a week at the beginning plus being available by phone. If you have any recommendations – yes, the person will be paid – please e-mail me at swood at hoku dot com.

    final 13-1, UH with 5 homers, 13 for the 3 game series. That is why the preseason is so important for the UH RPI should the Na Wahine not win the WAC tournament.

  205. Fan April 4, 2010 3:22 pm

    Rob Demello will be missed at KITV, he is definitely a star ready to take over!
