The Samoan Dream Team

Well, the stars came out for the June Jones Golf Tournament. These legends also will be going to American Samoa as part of the combined June Jones/Greg McMackin football clinic. From left: Jack “The Throwin’ Samoan” Thompson, Leo Goeas (who is actually Portuguese/Hawaiian), American Samoa Gov. Togiola Tulafono, Paul Soliai, Reagan Mauia, Melila Purcell III, and Jesse Sapolu:

At first glance, many thought that quarterback Greg Alexander was a defensive end. At 6 feet 5 (or 6-4) and 240 pounds, he certainly fit the part.
But Alexander has embraced the offseason conditioning program, running every morning, throwing in the afternoon, and running some more in the twilight.
Alexander has trimmed down 10 pounds, and now weighs 230.
What’s more, his footwork has improved greatly. He is way more mobile and, as a result, his passes even have more zip.
Head coach Greg McMackin declared the competition open at quarterback. Alexander now is a legitimate candidate.

* * *

Linebacker Josh Andrews has been impressive in unsupervised workouts. Even more impressive is his route to Manoa.
Andrews, an All-State player from Mililani High, originally enrolled in the Navy in 2007. But he said he was allowed to withdraw his application after his mother was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The tumor was found be benign.
Andrews then enrolled at Western Oregon. But he said he did not feel comfortable there, and opted to transfer to UH.


Andrews is one of three former Mililani High players hoping to join the Warriors. Pictured here are Andrews, cornerback Kawika Ornellas and running back Joey Cadiz.

OK, this water fountain in Klum Gym is just plain nasty.

Unsupervised workouts are open to everybody. It means that if DPK wants to relive his glory days, he can work out. This week, some players from San Jose Community College have been working out. Also giving it a shot is wideout Billy Ray Stutzmann, one of the top prospects in the state.

    Oregon State Jeremy Perry 6’2” 338 lbs. Senior (Kahuku)

    Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch List-(88)
    (best defensive player)

    Hawaii Solomin Elimimian, LB, 6’0″ 220 lbs. Sr
    Boise State Kyle Wilson, CB 5’10” 184 lbs. Jr.

    Lombardi Award Watch List-(54)
    (down linemen and defensive players lined up within 5 yrds. of the football)

    Solomon Elimimian, LB, Hawaii 6’0″ 220 lbs. Sr
    John Estes, OL, Hawaii 6’2″ 290 lbs.Junior
    Adam Leonard, LB, Hawaii 6’0″ 235 lbs. Sr.
    David Veikune, DL, Hawaii 6’3″ 250 lbs. Sr

    Dominic Green, OL, Nevada 6’3″ 295 lbs. Senior

    Note-Of the preliminary list of 54 players, BYU and Hawaii led with 4 players each.
    For Hawaii, I’m thinking, this has to be a first…4 players on the Lombardi Award watch list? And what doesn’t puzzle me is that even with these players gaining notice of their fine play. And Hawaii as a team collectively has a lot of experience defensively, potentially able to start 10-11 seniors. And although a few question marks on the offense line, plus the rawness both at the receiver and QB spots and that of the Ron Lee’s offense , I’m still not totally surprised that most of the publications having Hawaii finishing 2-3-4 in the WAC.

    This coming year the top four teams in the WAC are going to be tough with all four probably going to Bowl Games again. And maybe five. Thinking back last year and all four teams- Hawaii, Boise State, Fresno State and Nevada playing each other all in close competitive games. Mostly all the teams played within 7 points or less with each other. We hear so much about Boise or Fresno being the next BCS Buster. But you might think this is laughable… but my monies on Nevada. Potentially Nevada might have both the WAC Offensive and Defensive players of the year in their QB Kaepernick, Colin 6-6 215 So. And Mauga, Joshua LB 6-2 245 Sr. Let me tell you Nevada will be tough, especially now that they’ve changed DC from last year. They have some formidable players (rb, c, wr,cb, mlb,qb). Even Louisiana Tech are getting some SEC type players on their roster. So I wouldn’t count them out either.

    For Hawaii, I can’t recall any other season where they have so much on their plates than this season.Yet all the teams around them do, too. Last year was a dogfight, with seven games and seven wins leaving Hawaii the victor but not necessarily beating their opponents, the lesser inferior teams handily, as one might expect of an eventual BCS Bowl bound team.

    One thing is for sure the WAC is getting better with coaches, like Pat Hill for example, and others following his methodology of scheduling and playing “any team at any where philosophy”. And as a fan of WAC football you really have to look forward to this season with an eye on how your team is doing but also on how the other teams in the WAC are fairing with their out of conference games. Some of the games to keep note of Fresno vs.UCLA, Nevada vs.Missouri and Texas Tech, New Mexico State vs. Nebraska, Idaho vs. Arizona State … With the popularity of the internet and fans on message boards slighting the WAC and Hawaii and referring to our team as being BCS team wannabes it inflames me to cheer passionately on behalf of Hawaii and the WAC because I have so much faith in the Hawaii team. And the WAC.

    It’s more than being born and raised here. And rooting for the home team. Because I believe they’re more deserving of being held in higher regards than maybe a second, third, fourth preseason pick in the WAC in any other year but this one, especially with what they have on their plate…but looking at what the other teams have on their plates it’s really going to be a test of how the coaches, new offense and new players stepping in and persevering.

  7. Kekoa June 25, 2008 2:24 am

    Marlis~ Whew! That was a mouthful, and tons to think about.

    It’s more than being born and raised here. And rooting for the home team. Because I believe they’re more deserving of being held in higher regards than maybe a second, third, fourth preseason pick in the WAC in any other year but this one, especially with what they have on their plate…but looking at what the other teams have on their plates it’s really going to be a test of how the coaches, new offense and new players stepping in and persevering.

    I agree and would like to add a few more things…Heart. These guys have so much to draw from that is heartfelt. The veteran players are going back to exact some revenge on a SEC team. They’ll never forget what was done to colt and company.

    Then, it’s about a team that is blossoming…reaching full maturity. We have so much of it, that it’ll overwhelm their opponents. The depth of this team can be measured by the talent at each of the defensive positons.

    Defense looms large on the scale of 1 – 10. Offense will need to gel a long before making a firm committment,

  8. Kekoa June 25, 2008 2:28 am

    EEYOW! Alexander looks like he’s in tip top shape. This is gonna be a great QB group. How many can the team retain on the roster? How deep should we be?

    That water fountain looks yuck! ST ~ that is a pic to get on the front page of the sports section in the paper to help advertise for donations to UH…

    hi ho, hi ho… Aloha Kakahiaka!!!

    Great news on the blog bash party, we are having some special guests attend. They are Raha Hamza and Jamal Yousef from Africa. BTW – I just won $1.5 million dollars so I will send back everyone’s money and I’ll pay for the party myself.

  13. Stretch June 25, 2008 4:26 am

    Jim South – I hope if Graunke is going to be our starting QB in Florida, he better start getting his arse out to these unsupervised workouts. He hasn’t been out too often and if this is the type of leader that is going to be our starting QB, we are in trouble.

  14. bighilofan2 June 25, 2008 5:48 am

  18. whitey June 25, 2008 6:15 am

    Good morning Tsaikos. sun is starting to brighten the day here and know it will brighten your hearts.

    pride, thanks. i have supported michelle since she started playing with us in the Maui Open when she was 10. what i am disturbed about is her play and course management. old golf axiom, “driving for show, putting for dough”, but right now in her case, it is “driving in the bugaleles and hope my putts go in”. you don’t want to be in the bugaleles and she should not be hoping, but knows it will.

    last minute note for anyone who like to partake in muu call this evening on Maui. tentatively, it will be around 6 pm. will check to see if this new place, watercress, is open. if not, will be at tiffanys. will try to post exact time and place this afternoon.

    Gators rank well in preseason

    By Brandon Zimmerman
    Sun sports writer

    Published: Wednesday, June 25, 2008.

    Brandon Kruse/The Gainesville Sun As expected, Florida quarterback Tim Tebow is
    the coverboy of choice.
    No. 1 Georgia
    No. 2 Ohio State
    No. 3 USC
    No. 4 Oklahoma
    No. 5 LSU
    No. 6 Missouri
    No. 7 Clemson
    No. 8 West Virginia
    No. 9 Florida
    No. 10 Illinois

    Phil Steele
    No. 1 Florida
    No. 2 Ohio State
    No. 3 Oklahoma
    No. 4 USC
    No. 5 Clemson
    No. 6 West Virginia
    No. 7 Missouri
    No. 8 South Florida
    No. 9 Georgia
    No. 10 Penn St.

    No. 1 Georgia
    No. 2 USC
    No. 3 Ohio State
    No. 4 Oklahoma
    No. 5 Missouri
    No. 6 Florida
    No. 7 LSU
    No. 8 Texas
    No. 9 Clemson
    No. 10 West Virginia

    No. 1 Florida
    No. 2 Ohio State
    No. 3 Oklahoma
    No. 4 USC
    No. 5 Georgia
    No. 6 Missouri
    No. 7 West Virginia
    No. 8 Auburn
    No. 9 LSU
    No. 10 Clemson

    It’s official: Florida is No. 1.Or, rather, No. 9. Or is it No. 6?

    That depends on what preseason college football magazine you’re reading.

    The final batch of summer preview magazines hit newsstands Tuesday with the Sporting News listing Florida at No. 9 in its preseason top 25 while Phil Steele gave the Gators a No. 1 ranking. Two other magazines were released earlier this month. Athlon had Florida at No. 1 while Lindy’s gave the Gators a No. 6 ranking.

    Interestingly, the two magazines that did not give Florida a No. 1 ranking — Sporting News and Lindy’s — each had Georgia at No. 1.

    And although the Sporting News had Florida at No. 9, they did predict the Gators would play in the Sugar Bowl, something Florida hasn’t done since the 2000 season.

    Last season Florida finished 9-4 with a final ranking of No. 13.

    I love reading about Florida. Gets my hackles up. Stir da pot, stir da pot.

  20. MeiLing June 25, 2008 6:36 am

    I think a previous blog mentioned that Tyler was working hard at summer school to keep him academically eligible. It’s a balancing act.

    Good luck to the Mililani guys!

  21. bighilofan2 June 25, 2008 6:36 am

    C’mon guyz, step it up samoa!

    last minute note for anyone who like to partake in muu call this evening on Maui. tentatively, it will be around 6 pm. will check to see if this new place, watercress, is open. if not, will be at tiffanys. will try to post exact time and place this afternoon.

    Come one whitey, no need make code names, the place is called waterFALL.

  23. Stretch June 25, 2008 6:41 am

    BHF2 – send email to tsaikoparty at yahoo with your names. I need email to keep track of people attending.

  24. gigi-hawaii © June 25, 2008 6:48 am

    I was wondering why anybody would call his restaurant waterCRESS… unless his name was Bulla.

  25. Jayson June 25, 2008 6:50 am

    Whitey – Any chance you guys will be getting together between the 13th and 18th of July?

  26. Stephen Tsai June 25, 2008 6:56 am

    Great posts, Marlis and bighilo.

  27. bighilofan2 June 25, 2008 6:57 am

    howzit I sent email test yesterday from jahns001athawaiidotrrdotcom. did you get it?

  28. Maverick June 25, 2008 7:00 am

    Morning gang –

    Marlis, Good analysis on the overall WAC view. I too believe this could be a tight year for the top honors.
    The title could go to a team with one, or several losses in conference play, due to extreme team talent.
    We know Hawaii has talent, but it’s all about the gel with the new players coming in, especially our JUCO’s learning the system.

    The LaTech game could be one of our toughest home conference battles, but I agree that the Nevada team will be on top with both Offense and D.

  29. al June 25, 2008 7:03 am

    no matter, as long as not denny’s.

    umm. stretch, you what?
    won what?
    does stretchette know about this?
    no forget rule #32, never tell the wife when you get extra money, other wise the money going leave your pocket in one hurry.

  30. NYUH June 25, 2008 7:03 am

    The water fountain is classic. I loved UH but the facilities were differently slack. I remember being in George Hall watching the dust balls roll around during class. I don’t know if its a management issue or a union issue.

    As Rolovitch, Wieldon, and Graunke have shown. It takes at least 2 QBs to finish a season.

  31. Stretch June 25, 2008 7:07 am

    al – good advice, unfortunately she seen the tax returns already…. oh well….

  32. bighilofan2 June 25, 2008 7:09 am

    c’mon Warriors, step it up.

    Daniel Te’o Nesheim, UWashington’s DE soph last year who terrorized Colt, is working out at home in Hawn Paradise Park, Keaau. He’s listed as DE 6’4″ 245. No way! Da braddah got to be 265-270 pounds an packin sum speed. HUGE!

    Das da kine competition da Oline gonna be facin in Florida. I’m excited fo yu!!!
    watch da UH-Wash game film last year, an da SB film. da DE akshun, das da area I like watch da Oline respond to.


  33. Stretch June 25, 2008 7:11 am

    BHF2 – check your email, I sent you something re:blog party

  34. whitey June 25, 2008 7:11 am

    Jayson, no problem on dates. just let us know when you are available. we very flexible.

    stretch, my man, you out of touch with maui. the new place is called watercress and it is a high class korean restaurant. you got to come here to catch up on your memory. we moving up. hahahahaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!

  35. d1shima June 25, 2008 7:15 am

    Great Morning All.

    Good to see Billy Ray out there with the Warriors; looks like a good fit, eh?

    Dat water fountain looks like it’s got freshman hazing potential – good ting dat no happen at UH. Right? RIGHT???

  36. gigi-hawaii © June 25, 2008 7:26 am

    “high class” Korean restaurant??? how can you make kalbi and kim chi high class? Do the waitresses all wear hanbok?

  37. gigi-hawaii © June 25, 2008 7:30 am

    Well, some things have improved at UH — the professors can no longer smoke cigarettes while lecturing!

    And Gartley Hall is now air conditioned.

  38. Loa June 25, 2008 7:31 am

    morning gang!

    alexander looks hungry, hope the others stepping it up too
    that water fountain is nasty, why they no just yank’em, yikes
    great news on josh’s mom

    high class korean restaurant on maui? oh oh, that means the prices going up in honolulu

    have a safe and happy day

  39. whitey June 25, 2008 7:35 am

    gigi, that’s why the muu call is going to be there if they are open. the tsaikos are moving up like my friend george jefferson. kalbi is cow beef and kim chi is very good looking. i think she is in her early twenties, but on the tall side.

    ok, time to go meet the gang at Jacks, then put in some intense time on the range, so i can kick michelle’s arse when she challenges me (w/one arm tied behind her back). hahahahaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!

  40. Jayson June 25, 2008 7:36 am

    Whitey – Cool! I will be back on Maui that week. I am always down for Tiffany’s if that is the norm.

  41. koakane™ June 25, 2008 7:42 am

    morning and so much activity going on

    kofe is perking and slowly getting my sh_t together

    listening to LL who’s was interviewing DLow about tomorrow’s draft

    back in a sec

  42. whitey June 25, 2008 7:42 am

    gigi, clarify about the cow beef. these guys on maui raise “grass fed” cows, and before it is served, they “massage” it. do they do that in hnl?

    loa, no worry brah, i don’t think this affect your price cause this is not on the dark side, but located on the border. unless darth and his gang start an invasion from the dark side, i think it will be ok.

    ok, gotto go. have a great day!!!!!

  43. gigi-hawaii © June 25, 2008 7:51 am

    whitey — I prefer “beer-fed” cows. Actually, the steak in Tokyo melted in my mouth after just 1 – 2 chews! Best cow I ever tasted!

  44. koakane™ June 25, 2008 7:53 am

    back with da kofe

    listening to interview with UAfoa new ad at STL. congrats to him and da oddah crusaders d1 and bulla. know of sure KS big island really going miss him and principal really wanted him to stay.

  45. Da Punchbowl Kid June 25, 2008 8:08 am

    *DPK pats his opu and counts a record number of “after-jiggles”. He thinks to himself; “Okay, okay, I WILL start walking today. Enough is enough. And I won’t dare join the unsupervised workouts, though. Those gallant young men have enough of a challenge each day. They don’t need to be exposed to the tragi-comedic and sometimes disturbing spectacle of my work outs.”* 😳

  46. koakane™ June 25, 2008 8:15 am

    now coach mac on LL

  47. koakane™ June 25, 2008 8:22 am

    coach mac seems to happy with all qb’s but is impressed w/ alexander. mentioned hard to cut down to three by week befor 1st game.

    back to his golfing w/JJ on kauai

  48. Da Punchbowl Kid June 25, 2008 8:22 am

    Good morning everyone! 😉

    marlis- That has to be one of the best preseason posts… EVER!!! Keep it coming cuz.

    Monsieur Tsai,
    The pics and back stories have really elevated the blog’s quality. More, more! Exciting to see how hard Alexander is working, and the footwork stuff is great news.

  49. Stretch June 25, 2008 8:32 am

    Na Koa golf tourney on Kauai today. Unfortunately I not invited. The boss is playing so I gave him a few flyers to the party and asked him to give to Mack and JD (if he is around).

  50. Da Punchbowl Kid June 25, 2008 8:33 am

    Folks keep saying how our offense may take time to gel, and that JJ is gone and Colt is gone and blah blah blah. News flash: Ron Lee’s version of the RnS kicks a*s, and they have the guys to execute it. This team is going to surprise.

  51. Kekoa June 25, 2008 8:34 am

    Stretch ~ Are you on island today?…or are you goin’ buy one island today?

    Koakane ~ You goin’ practice today my EIS pahtna? Pops like go take a few reps!

    D1 ~ How ’bout if da Kapolei Warrior Express rolls by your shop to pick you up and whisk you away to watch a little football?

    Homey ~ Eh Homes!…whats on your agenda today? Like go ride gangsta ka’awela? The boyz of UH need to see what REAL guns look like.

    I think you got it wrong. Graunke should have been starting this year but issues have set him back. Plus, he’s really pissing me off as a Senior not leading by example. YOUR issues should be taking care of, so YOU can be out there with YOUR team that YOU as a Senior are supposed to lead! I hope Graunke understands this NOW, cause he’s starting to lose my faith. If you going act like second string than you going play as second string bruddah! C’mon Tyler I want to see you out there and hope that with your skills and experience will lead us as you’ve done in the past!

    Brian Smith has been pleased with Kia’s progress. Said on the radio that Estes needs to get stronger.

  66. Pauoa Boy June 25, 2008 8:57 am

    Hope Billy Ray hits the weights, looking a little tweeny…hope Craig bulks him up shmall kine.

  67. prideperiod June 25, 2008 9:02 am

    No worry Pauoa Boy. Billy Ray still young boy. Maturity will put on some good pounds naturally. Braddah Billy get the natural speed. Das definitely what we need.

    From Yesterday…

    June 24th, 2008 at 10:02 pm
    Pauoa Boy: Man, you call everybody uncle and aunty. I bet you’re around my older sister’s age; that’s close enough. So do what I do — call them grandma and grandpa.

    Haha, Jason I just call everybody unko and aunteh out of respect. Eventhough most are older than us, they not that old to be called grams and gramps. Some may be but I’m sure they rather be called unko/aunteh instead of gramma/grampeh. 🙂

  69. Pauoa Boy June 25, 2008 9:06 am

    prideperiod – Yup, I can see him and Kalua Noa streaking the sidelines taking it to the house. Maybe he need to come to some Tsai-ko CC to put on the pounds 🙂 Nah, I know he going get biggah once he join the rest of the boys.

  70. Maverick June 25, 2008 9:10 am

    Refering to the Tyler G. issue, we all know he has the talent and experience to be our # 1 QB.
    He had intentions on taking over the posistion with last years media comments stating,”Next year is my turn.” Kinda assuming, ya ?

    I really enjoy watching him play, and he posseses the arm and running capabilty to take us to the lead, but there are some inconsistency moments.
    If he can shed this off field baggage, then the job will be his.

    But I do see 3 top QB’s sharing the field time with proper rotation.

  71. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER June 25, 2008 9:12 am

    Aloha Kakahiaka!

    What a wonderful football day!
    Mahalo, marlis for getting my mind off my “different” yesterday. It was a little unsettling – one of those “uncomfortable push” responses to perceived injustices (why I no can keep my mouf shut…???? Let someone else be an agent of change!)

    life is short. stick up (try not to stick out, but sometimes no can help) for ke ala pono.

    So- we keep the QB wheel spinning in the minds of those who may be lurking here to “get da scoops”on what kind of competition UH is bringing to DA TABLE dis year.

    All I can say is that I have made the biggest effort in my life to invest personally in the success of this team and I ain’t doin it out of PITY!!!
    Bwahahahaha! 😈



  72. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER June 25, 2008 9:15 am

    oh yeah- hiya Stretch!
    I guess a certain football alum won’t be answering my business email den today, eh?
    Mack Attack comes to Kauai!
    Woo Hoo!

  73. tom mui June 25, 2008 9:20 am

    MARLIS: Good analysis and very thoughtful.

    STRETCH: Strange – usually the Nigerian bankers give more $$$ than 1.5. I think you are being cheated! (Maybe you can replace that water fountain when you send the moneys needed to Nigeria!)

    WHITEY: Break 70s!!! Duffer playing with you?

  74. Pauoa Boy June 25, 2008 9:22 am

    Maverick – Knowing Coach Mack, I don’t think he likes to rotate QB’s. I would hope he re-thinks his statement as we have loads of talent behind center this year with each QB bringing in his own lil sumtin, sumtin to add.

  75. Stephen Tsai June 25, 2008 9:25 am

    Re: Quarterbacks.
    Coach Mack said he is going to pick one quarterback, probably by the end of the second week of training camp, and stick with him as the No. 1 guy. There won’t be any rotating, as far as I know.

  76. homey ® June 25, 2008 9:26 am

    Wonderful morning earthlings!

    Kekoa – Thanks for the offer. What time of the day are you talking about? I hope the ride isn’t inside the trunk. 😯

    re: Q. Beaver

    I saw him practice this past spring. Huge buggah but he has to trim some weight and work on his footwork and lateral movement. He’ll be a force once he gets into game shape.

    ST – I remember Coach Mack saying that, hope whoever #1 is will have his game face on in the Swamp!

  79. homey ® June 25, 2008 9:33 am

    Good to see not only former Mililani HS players coming out for unsupervised workouts but other students of the game too.

  80. Pauoa Boy June 25, 2008 9:35 am

    homey – I figured a guy like Quentin who is that big might have trouble moving around. Hope he can develop his footwork and learn how to use leverage in the trenches, I don’t think anyone would be able to hold him on the line. At 6’1″ 350lbs. that’s a load to try and pancake. The good thing is he is only a Freshman and has a couple years to turn into a monster on the Dline! He’s going to be all “G” as in GRAZY on the DLine for years to come!

  81. Pauoa Boy June 25, 2008 9:35 am

    mapquest – bwahaha

  82. homey ® June 25, 2008 9:47 am

    PB – another thing I noticed is he got knocked off his feet a few times. With time he’ll develop and contribute to the Warrior defense. What I would like to see is a DT that can do it all; control the line, bull rush, penetrate with awesome technique, stop the run, rush the QB, run down ball carriers, disrupt the traps, have a great motor, never give up, play every down with intensity…hey, sounds like “Da Beast”.

  83. Pauoa Boy June 25, 2008 9:48 am

    Oh shnap almost forgot about my Fantasy Football Draft, catch you guys in a few…

  84. myki1 June 25, 2008 9:49 am

    and back to work 😀

  86. Pauoa Boy June 25, 2008 9:52 am

    homey – No doubt, one guy I’m keeping an eye on is Vaughn Meatoga. I think he has that kind of potential to be that type of DT. Only considered a Freshman as well, I could see both he and Quentin killing it in a couple years.

  87. homey ® June 25, 2008 9:54 am

    gigi – be assertive! Tell hubby that you plan to stay late at the blog party and that he can go home early to rest for his workout while you catch a ride home with someone. BTW, how does he golf and lift weights with his arthritic hands?

    That water fountain must be hidden. Wouldn’t you think the highly paid custodians or student hires would clean it up?

  88. Pauoa Boy June 25, 2008 9:57 am

    Homey ~ Are you in the downtown area today? If you are still selling Colt bobble head dolls on the corner of King & Bishop would be perfect! I can just do a drive-by! No mo room in da trunk I get some meat to drop off at Genji’s on da way to UHM, so you can ride in da front.

  94. Pauoa Boy June 25, 2008 10:08 am

    Stretch – I not worried I’ve been my FF league champion 3 years in a row 05,06,07. My thing is not to necessarily go for the star players but the impact players depending on the league scoring settings.

  95. (Jesse) James June 25, 2008 10:08 am

    Good morning tsaikos…another great day in Hawaii Nei..

    Stretch – got to agree about TG. He needs to show more leadership. I think Inoke has shown leadership and Alexander is showing tremendous drive….he looks like he is in top shape, at least in the pictures posted. Oh, BTW, I called Todai at the number you gave out…the manager was “VERY HAPPY” to hear from me….BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    KK – You work? Just kidding my friend. BTW, I think you got mixed up, in that duo, you would be Jerry and I would be Dean….mwahahahahahaha

    Tom/Stretch – You guys too eh? I actually was planning on filling for millions in an account in Venezuela when two people (quite possibly relatives of mine with the same asian last name) were killed in a car accident and left millions of unclaimed cash in a bank account that I could get since we had the same last name….mwahahahahahaha, when I get that money, I’ll cover the cost of the party…

First person to come up with the correct answer will receive a dinner for two at The India Cafe on Kapahulu Avenue. Deadline 5 am: Wednesday, June 25.

    Capitol -ist/WassupDoc, the answer to this question is that each of these athletes are on Vegan diets. Each has cut out meats and such in their respective diets to help promote a healthier lifestyle.

    ok, time to go meet the gang at Jacks, then put in some intense time on the range, so i can kick michelle’s arse when she challenges me (w/one arm tied behind her back). hahahahaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!

    Whitey, did u talk to Jerry to set up your arse kickin? Did I tell you I have 3 arms?
    Yeah, think you better practice hard like I am this week, you know maybe if I win I will take a short vacation in Maui for some R&R. Uh, Heard some old dementia guy on Maui calling me out, uh, you know I usually take it easy on the seniors. Right now you know, the odds on me winning the Open is 50-1, you know, should be 6-5, as my game has elevated in last month. Um Old man, listen to your cohorts, gigi, Tommui, & LizK. They are my superfans not like you and pride. Com’n guys, jump back on the bandwagon, its ready to roll.

    It’s great that he comes out but he, and you too, needs to walk around to meet people. Don’t just sit there and wait for people to come to you. This coming party, there will be minimal tables to sit down at, it will be cocktail tables where people will keep mingling among the crowd.

  163. homey ® June 25, 2008 10:46 am

    gigi – The A-House’s, darling couple, split up when they attend CC’s so they can speak with more people. It’s ok to mingle, I wouldn’t worry that someone will hit on hubby…

    But then again at the last CC, the A-House’s got a private booth…aristocrats.

  164. Koa-mahu June 25, 2008 10:47 am

    eyezzzz I know that is him. you the one with broken eyez.

    James. ohh no honey I saw you first you stud. your name is jamie? we match hon, I got a girl name and a boy name too. outta here. call me!

  165. (Jesse) James June 25, 2008 10:48 am

    Stretch – Any word on the count for the party so far??? Just want to make sure people get ample opportunity to make their reservations for the BLOG BASH….Gonna be a great party with great prizes!!! But more importantly, good fellowship, good friends, and good FUN!!!

  166. gigi-hawaii © June 25, 2008 10:48 am

    I got real tired of walking and standing at the Ueno Zoo in Tokyo. Did it for 1-1/2 hrs and then I told hubby “Let’s leave.”

    99 yr old wahine needs to sit!

  167. homey ® June 25, 2008 10:50 am

    Stretch – Other than AWH, any other person offered to treat me? James got treated…

  168. (Jesse) James June 25, 2008 10:51 am

    koa – mahu ….STOP IT!!! I saw him first, honey….and I don’t know who this Jamie character that gigi is talking about is…..MWAHAHAHAHAHAAHHA

    Okay gang, have to go to the store to get some medicine. I think I may be coming down with a cold. Hopefully not but better to be preventing something from starting. Anyway, talk to you guys later.


  169. WreckinEyez June 25, 2008 10:51 am

  170. Bulla June 25, 2008 10:53 am


    thanks for the props regarding ryan; he is getting acclimated and into his routine, being part polar bear, he is sleeping almost 12 hours, lifting 2 hours, running 1 hour, and probably eating the rest of the day, haha.

    we are so looking forward to seeing him in a few weeks for fall camp, strength tests coming up in two weeks…..he’ll be ready.

    Tsaikos, have a great day in Hawaii Nei :):):)

  171. Stretch June 25, 2008 10:54 am

    Current count is 82 plus some others who have not sent an email yet but know will show up.

    I got a call from the CR distributor and he was willing to pay for you. He said that you are his No 1 customer.

  172. homey ® June 25, 2008 10:54 am

    gigi – Okay then, go ahead and sit at a cocktail table for 4 hours. As Bobby Brown would say, “that’s your prerogative”. 😆

  173. gigi-hawaii © June 25, 2008 10:54 am

    What will be the ratio of women to men at the bash? 1:10? Lots of guys to look at and drool over, gals, so sign up.

  174. koakane™ June 25, 2008 10:55 am

    OKAY, MY BEEG MISTAKE. I looked at yesterday’s blog again, and sure enough, PB ANSWERED DOC’S QUESTION FIRST.

    Not Kekoa!

    Sorry, PB, you win…I think.

  176. homey ® June 25, 2008 11:02 am

    Stretch – 😆 I think I’ll branch out and pray to the Patron gods too! I may be able to get some extra stash for Bulla!

  177. homey ® June 25, 2008 11:05 am

    gigi – Other than Sumurai al, there is no guy to drool over. Well maybe Jason since he is still young and virile and al’s son!

  178. Kekoa June 25, 2008 11:07 am

    Barry is haole like hubby, so he know all about steaks and how much he loves em.

    My reply was:

    Sorry Gigi, I must say, Barry is not like hubby at all. Barry understands and appreciates our Polynesian culture and has embraced it fully with his family. He knows how to openly share what he owns and covets nothing.

    He is like a brother to all of us, and in fact gave me something just the other day that he noticed I thought was unique. No hesitation, just here…take it, it’s yours!

    All we hear from you is “Hubby says we have to leave at a certain time.” “Hubby says we have to arrive before a certain time.” “Hubby says this…Hubby says that.”

    When will we ever hear, “I told Hubby I want to arrive early and stay late.” Be honest…Would he balk at that demand?

    Lighten up David, Gigi says you are Haole, but you don’t have to act like one. Come join us and talk story. Tell us about your hopes and dreams and unload that sports drawer that is full of opinions on Warrior Football. No be scared, come and wala’au with us. That’s what this blog is really all about, we just like to take the fun way around the block to get to the Football field and the really good stuff.

    Peace Out!

    homey, you are a guy, right? so how da heck would you know what a gal finds attractive? haha

  180. gigi-hawaii © June 25, 2008 11:08 am

    yeah, kekoa, I saw it. But I like haole guys!

  181. d1shima [sez:] June 25, 2008 11:11 am

    How did San Jose Community College guys find their way to the workouts?

    Maybe a psychic check-in with Dionne Warwick allowed them to backtrack from “the way TO San Jose”

  182. homey ® June 25, 2008 11:11 am

    Should’ve asked a harder question like, “What is the last four digits of pi?”

    so homey approaches a gal and asks what men she finds attractive. Naturally, she says, “You, of course, Homey!!!”

  189. homey ® June 25, 2008 11:20 am

    gigi – I think you are misinterpreting Kekoa’s true meaning of not being haole. If not then carry on.

  190. homey ® June 25, 2008 11:23 am

    gigi – no no no…first you gotta feel comfortable with the person, you don’t just blurt out stuff. Then after 6 beers you ask anything you like! 😆

    Aunty Gigi – No matter if I won or not, cause I stay in Cali anyway. That’s why I was talking to Jason saying he could go in my place if the dinner is actually going, since he knew the answer too. Not sure if Jason would go or not. But if not then Unko Kekoa can take the dinner. Not even sure if it’s legit, so who knows. Just wanted to answer it…das all!

  194. gigi-hawaii © June 25, 2008 11:34 am

    PB, uh, I think you should know that UNKO in Japanese means “doo doo.” Blogger Las Vegas told me that the Japanese refer to the Asahi Brewery symbol as unko.

  195. homey ® June 25, 2008 11:37 am

    The reason we drink more than 6 beers is because it is liquid pupu.

  196. Pauoa Boy June 25, 2008 11:40 am

    So I just pau my FF draft and did decent I think, I got 5 of the top 25 I had targeted in the draft…so not bad odds. This is my team in case anyone gives a chit:

    QB Tony Romo Dallas Cowboys
    David Garrard Jacksonville Jaguars

    RB Steven Jackson St.Louis Rams
    Edgerrin James Arizona Cardinals
    LenDale White Tennessee Titans

    DEF Green Bay Packers

  197. gigi-hawaii © June 25, 2008 11:41 am

    6 beers!!! Don’t you slur your speech and stagger and trip over chairs? I find that the 1st beer always tastes best. The 2nd one is over-kill and doesn’t taste as good.

    I like the faint buzz a 1st beer gives me. But I really don’t like feeling drunk cause it makes me want to vomit.

  198. Pauoa Boy June 25, 2008 11:41 am

    Sheesh Aunty Gigi, kay find den…sorry Uncle Kekoa 🙂

  199. gigi-hawaii © June 25, 2008 11:43 am

  202. Kekoa June 25, 2008 11:44 am

    Homey pack it in bud. We got the rest of the island to save yet. You take from Mililani to North Shore. I’ll work the east side to UH Manoa.

Questions is… How is our boys gonna train for that? start now maybe… one practice a week or every other week in full sweats? it would kill. but 90degrees+ with 100%+ humidity? gotta start feeling the hurt now… those gators are used to it.

    You should have seen us at the end of the night at Genji’s. Mumbling, tripping over table legs, talking nonsense to the waitress, singing with the microphone upside down, saying hi to everyone every 2 minutes, yelling “more wine”, jun ken po to see who would drive…

  209. SteveM June 25, 2008 11:57 am

    Hello everyone! Lunch time for me at work today…

    Interestingly, Peaches sits down at events and seldom moves. But she recognizes almost everybody by face and blog name and is very comfortable wherever she sits. Probably because after attending over 30-40 parties, cattle calls, karaoke calls, tailgates, etc., she has met those who she has sat with/near and those who stopped by to chat… and slip her jaeger bombs… 😉 I guess quantity of attendance counts too.

  210. gigi-hawaii © June 25, 2008 11:59 am

    It is scary to see a drunkard drive. Thought hubby would hit a tree, then he drove in the middle of 2 lanes on the freeway, just could not drive straight in 1 lane. Almost killed me, our baby, and himself.

    2nd time he got drunk, he backed the car into our shed in the car port.

    he tries not to drink and drive now. he is more aware of his actions.

  211. homey ® June 25, 2008 11:59 am

    Howzit SteveM ~ I can see that you and Peaches won’t be needing our Tsaiko-therapy services. Are you able to cut loose early today and swing by the practice field?

  218. Kekoa June 25, 2008 12:12 pm

    Ok…just heard from Koakane. He’s meeting BHF2 for lunch at Da Chart House in case anyone is in the area…and den he will attend practice.

    He is still looking for memorable stuff from Tsaikos. I’m bringing in the Hawaiian Flag I held up in NOLA that appeared on the front page of the HA and on all the local TV news clips, Fan Fest, and CC at Harrah’s with all the Tsaikos posing with it. It was proudly displayed inside the Sugar Bowl while we sang Hawaii Pono’i. Chicken skin moment for sure.

  219. homey ® June 25, 2008 12:12 pm

  227. Stephen Tsai June 25, 2008 12:28 pm

    Actually, I don’t pass judgment on “Hubby,” because I’ve never heard any complaints from the, uh, hubby’s mouth. It’s usually his spokeswoman who files the complaints. From my experience, “Hubby” is quite the gentleman. He’s also quite patient, as we’ve all learned.

    That was the Unko! – It was awesome beyond basic imagination

    Taste like Unko – The flavor was not up to par and was resentful; (Note: please do not ask Koa-Mahu for this definition by all means)

    Hello Tsaikos

    Stretch – I read your email to Chawan…YOU were the one yelling But it was still funny that you said Chawan still lost to me.

    “Unko, Unko, Unko!!!” could be used by Koakane when they yell “last call!” Das alright though. He is one awesome buggah. For more information please see “Koakane” on the 12:39 post…

    re: “ghost thingys” in pictures

    i had these 2 pictures here of another guam sunset where you see something reflecting the sun in 2 different spots. can’t be a plane as that’s the bay down there and the only in the water was a canoe. what else would reflect the sun like that???
    and my camera’s not that dirty, or that spot would appear in all my pictures in the same place.

    hard to say it, but yes, go Fresno! beat them Georgia Dawgs.

    maybe why he was so popular at saturday nights bowling.

  253. A-House June 25, 2008 1:49 pm


    Chawan’s pictures are quite interesting in the size and intensity of the “object”.

    It would be a hell of a dust particle that glows that brightly and at different positions in the photos. My Chomoro friends would have a big kick out of this.

    Jesse James, don’t know a lot about bike engines but can try.

  257. g-nalo June 25, 2008 1:57 pm

    it was me BUT it was koakane’s fault, he is the one who gave me that darn red cup.

    haaa, oh another “unko faced”??!! oh wait……….you was “Koakane” too??!!

  258. homey ® June 25, 2008 1:58 pm

    A-House – I’m no stranger to the unexplained. I worked in Kawaiahao Plaza and walked through the graveyard on the grounds of Kawaiahao church every workday. As you may know there are many children buried there and whenever I would get to work my shoes were untied. I blame those kolohe spirits.

  259. (Jesse) James June 25, 2008 1:59 pm

    Hiflyer…I have the mechanics manual for this particular engine. Once I get it off the frame…hopefully soon, I just want to tear it down and rebuild it. I’ve worked with engines before but more of a backyard mechanic with a lot of trial and error….just don’t want to screw up too badly….LOL

  260. Mrs. A-House (Orbs Club President) June 25, 2008 2:03 pm

    Homey –
    As a charter member of my Orbs Club, I commend you for your vigilence and detection of the orb. You have refined your skills, and I commend you. Well done!

  261. HiFlyer June 25, 2008 2:03 pm

    Alright gotta go to to work now, seez u all latta.

  262. homey ® June 25, 2008 2:04 pm

    A-House – it could also be a water particle, bug, pollen…still Guamanian though.

  263. g-nalo June 25, 2008 2:07 pm

    I have had many experiences where I cannot explain what happened, but I know it happened.

    A-House, at first glance thought you was referring to being “Koakane” next morning? 🙂

    but seriously, “unko” no, don’t need to see an orb…….EVER!

  264. Mrs. A-House (Orbs Club President) June 25, 2008 2:13 pm

    I believe those two splendid sunset photos with “unexplained” objects qualifies you for admission to my Orbs Club. Would you be interested in joining? There are no membership fees. My other charter member, Wreck, will definitely congratulate you on capturing on film these manifestations of “something”. If you have no objection, welcome to the club!

    BTW, only for this CWS championship game, GO FSU!!! Bring pride and glory to the WAC!

  265. homey ® June 25, 2008 2:14 pm

    Mrs. A-House (Orbs Club President) – If you blow up the picture and look at the orb closely you can see an intricate design within the orb!

  266. LizKauai [Believer] June 25, 2008 2:18 pm

    OMG- I am jes ROTFLMAOOL (Out Loud) … no unko!!!

    You guys are tooo much.

    Koakane, I can bring my long Colt Brennan, HI’s Man poster (that Betty – Mrs. BG, helped me tape up at the T-Gate last year) next weekend. It survived many trips to home games last year!

    hiho, mahalo all for the lun chow ah laugh fest!

  267. Stephen Tsai June 25, 2008 2:25 pm

  274. J-DOG June 25, 2008 2:51 pm

    Don’t understand why some people are getting waaay too excited for Fresno St.

  282. d1shima [sez:] June 25, 2008 3:06 pm

    tough unko – too bad, suck it up.

  291. (Jesse) James June 25, 2008 3:13 pm

  292. (Jesse) James June 25, 2008 3:15 pm

  295. WreckinEyez June 25, 2008 3:18 pm

    No one is safe… Do it now! Send an e-mail to get your tickets!!!

  299. homey ® June 25, 2008 3:24 pm

    I don’t have access to a computer. How can I email Stretch?

  300. homey ® June 25, 2008 3:26 pm

    UHfan808 – I deleted it but will send a test one to you.

  301. Bulla June 25, 2008 3:27 pm


    just address the envelope to ‘stretch’….everyone knows him

  302. bonar June 25, 2008 3:32 pm

    NYUH: I believe UH split or nearly split their games with Fresno… home at least. L and L were talking about it this morning. Maybe it’s me, but I have no problem rooting for FS.

  303. homey ® June 25, 2008 3:32 pm

    end of the 7th, Fresno leading 6-0.

  304. 99club June 25, 2008 3:33 pm

    6-0 through 7. Fresno St/WAC 6 outs away from Championship.

  305. homey ® June 25, 2008 3:35 pm

    Bulla – okay, envelope sent. UNKO! dropped it in the mailbox and forgot to put the $$ inside!

  306. (Jesse) James June 25, 2008 3:37 pm

    homey – I don’t think UHFan wants “those kinds” of pictures….mwahahahahahahaaha ahhhh, NYQUIL kicking in…..

  307. homey ® June 25, 2008 3:38 pm

    How’s that saying go? Don’t count your chickens before DPK sings…something like that.

  308. homey ® June 25, 2008 3:40 pm

    James – you should see the pics she sends me! OMG!

  309. Kekoa June 25, 2008 3:42 pm

    Homes ~ That’s where me and pops ended up. Traffic jam at the H-1/2 split east, traffic backed to Uka Blvd on the 2. Finally bailed and went home. Not word it.

    Oh well, get to watch GA get their A$$ wiped by a 2nd rate WAC team.

    Pops is bummed, he wanted to test his throwing accuracy to the barrel. I have trouble just walking to the barrel and dropping the ball in! Bwhahahaha!

  310. homey ® June 25, 2008 3:45 pm

    unko! Almost 3:45…gotta bag soon.

  311. Kekoa June 25, 2008 3:47 pm

    Wha Hoppen?…You guys scare Gigi off the blog, or did she go wash clothes?

    Whoa! WAC team just blasted a solo homer, in the top of 9, adding insult to injury.

  312. homey ® June 25, 2008 3:48 pm


  313. homey ® June 25, 2008 3:49 pm

    Kekoa – she probably had to deliver her books to someplace.

  314. g-nalo June 25, 2008 3:49 pm

    Remember… All the special guest are part of the count too…

    Tsaiko’s was awarded 125 tickets, but Stretch might ‘fumble’ and give some back?

  315. Kekoa June 25, 2008 3:52 pm

    Yikes! I make papaya!… it’s 6-1 WAC now going to the top of 9. Too busy talking on the phone, one finger typing and not paying much attention to TV…obviously.

  316. Rob25 June 25, 2008 3:55 pm

    Hard to cheer for Fresno, but willing to support the WAC.

    Would like to hear some of those Georgia fans now! They weren’t very gracious as we were walking back from the Sugar Bowl to Bourbon Street. Some of those fans were talking a whole bunch of “unko.” Luckily we walked with some very nice Georgia people who commented that the older fans weren’t like that.

    GO WAC!!

    Boo…the GA Bulldogs are on the board.

  317. midori7 June 25, 2008 3:55 pm

    Leahey & Leahey was on this morning???

    UH played Fresno St. here. We won the first 2 games but lost the lead in the 3rd game & lost the 4th game.

    GO WAC!

  318. Kekoa June 25, 2008 3:56 pm

    We need to get permission to open the entire center, the snack bars, the Rainbowtique, and of course bring in the Rainbow Dancers. Betcha Hubby would stay late then!

  319. Kekoa June 25, 2008 4:06 pm

    Hiya Rob25! ~ Me, Liz, Rich & Ronnie had a similar experience on the way out of the Supah Dome. Most GA Rednecks were quiet as they slipped past us, and then started to talk LOUD aftah they were out of slippah range! They’re soooo lucky we didn’t unleash Ronnie. She was not a very happy camper at the time. Liz was trying to “shake hand make a friend.” She actually won over more fans that way.

  320. Rob25 June 25, 2008 4:07 pm

    Going camping this weekend. I think that I am going to go through withdrawls from the blog!

    It’s hard not being connected. What will I do in Vegas? Don’t want to pay the high internet fees at the Golden Nugget. Unless…i win the Megabucks!

  321. (Jesse) James June 25, 2008 4:09 pm

    kekoa…what??? The Rainbow Dancers won’t be there??? Jason will be mighty disappointed…… :mrgreen:

  322. Rob25 June 25, 2008 4:14 pm

    Hi Kekoa…

    Yeah, we were by some very nice people, but there were these young college age fans (early 20’s) and they were saying all kinds of stupid “unko” things to us Hawaii fans. We just held our heads high and made conversation with those fans from Georgia that were gracious winners. Congratulated them on the win. They just loved the fans that they had met from Hawaii.

    One guy was yelling, “If I was from Hawaii, I’d live in a volcanoe…”

    Well the next time that he started that…I told him loudly that if he was from Hawaii, he would be much nicer. The mature Georgia fans agreed and other Hawaii fans cheered my response. I didn’t want to disrespect them, just wanted them to know the difference between us and them.

    I can just see Ronnie’s blood boiling now!

  323. Rob25 June 25, 2008 4:15 pm

    One strike left for Fresno and they will represent for the WAC!

  324. Rob25 June 25, 2008 4:15 pm

    Ball four…that was a choke!

  325. (Jesse) James June 25, 2008 4:16 pm


  326. Kekoa June 25, 2008 4:17 pm

    Rob25 ~ Sit in a Starbucks and ride their signal. That’s what we did in the Marriot at NOLA. Find out from the desk.


  327. midori7 June 25, 2008 4:18 pm

    CONGRATULATIONS to Fresno State!

    Way to represent the WAC!

    Truly AMAZING run through the regionals, super regionals & the CWS!

  328. d1shima June 25, 2008 4:20 pm

    Congrats to the Bulldogs. (see, I was right!)

  329. chawan_cut June 25, 2008 4:21 pm

    congrats to Fresno.

    i can’t believe i just said that.

    just this once. thats it.

  330. d1shima June 25, 2008 4:21 pm

    WAC team wins a NC.

    Sounds good, eh?

  331. Da Punchbowl Kid June 25, 2008 4:23 pm

    Well looky here. A lil ole WAC team beats beats an SEC power for the national collegiate baseball title. See what happens when you have a play off system instead of “B”ull “C”rap “S”ystem? Good job Fresno! 😆

  332. Kekoa June 25, 2008 4:24 pm

    Rob25 ~ Did she tell ya ’bout the Red Neck Bar she went into armed with nothing except her Portagee mout? 10 minutes later they were begging her to leave!…“and take your cheesburgers with ya!”

  333. Jason June 25, 2008 4:31 pm

    Amazing. Who would’ve thought that Fresno State would win the CWS.

    We don’t need no stinking Rainbow Dancers, as long as UHfan808 and midori7 are there. Oh, and gigi.

  334. al June 25, 2008 4:35 pm

    whoa….busy day here.

    i can’t believe the unko discussions and why was the number one answer, survey says, bing….unkohead omitted.

    i can;t believe, well actually i guess that gigi never went ot point after, beef n grog, spats, and other clubs of the day where standing, carousing, and playing “pick up” was the cool thing to do.

    midori7…..i can’t believe you never met young billy stutzmann at all of the tailgates at richardson. i think he was there at least three times with brother and dad.

  335. Kekoa June 25, 2008 4:36 pm

    Fresno who?…how soon we forget!

  336. d1shima June 25, 2008 4:39 pm


    How true. I think that’s a crock of unko midori7 is servin’ up!

  337. Kekoa June 25, 2008 4:40 pm

    Al ~ The controversey over the contest this morning should not have happened. I was never entered in it AT ALL. I merely answered a question WDoc had about Bowling Lanes being closed and the next thing you know, I win $1.5 million large!

  338. Kazz June 25, 2008 4:40 pm

    yay fresno yay… 🙄

  339. al June 25, 2008 4:41 pm

    muumuu’s don’t show enough leg.

  340. g-nalo June 25, 2008 4:41 pm

    It’s hard not being connected. What will I do in Vegas? Don’t want to pay the high internet fees at the Golden Nugget. Unless…i win the Megabucks!

    woooo hoooo, then Rob treating everybody Blog Bash, extra orders steak and poke!

  341. d1shima June 25, 2008 4:43 pm


    Can I quote you on that on 10/3?

  342. al June 25, 2008 4:44 pm

    i believe about four kaimuki bulldogs ended up at san jose cc. so, them being at the clinic could explain it. also, a lot of polys go there.

    it could be interesting.

    i wonder if any san mateo cc guys come around too.

  343. d1shima June 25, 2008 4:46 pm

    Wow. Somebody must have just hit MegaBucks recently; still in the $10M range

  344. Kazz June 25, 2008 4:47 pm


    June 25th, 2008 at 4:43 pm

    Can I quote you on that on 10/3?


    Only with the sarcasm. I’ll leave it at that. Like the saying goes, if no get anyting nice fo say no say nahting…..

  345. al June 25, 2008 4:49 pm

    not clinic, unofficial, unsupervised, unrecruitment workouts i meant.

    billy’s been working out since he was very young.

    kaz stevenson is one that i would like to see at those workouts.

    you can never have enough kids coming and getting jazzed by the workouts at manoa. that is how dreams are built.

    someone should pick up the 12 year old koehler and unbring him to the unofficial, unsupervised, not a recruiting tool workouts.

    i think we are already for some real warrior football to get a rolling. that way we won’t be picking on each other.

  346. Kazz June 25, 2008 4:50 pm


    June 25th, 2008 at 4:21 pm
    WAC team wins a NC.

    Sounds good, eh?

    Don’t get me wrong that in itself does sound good, but it does leave room for interpretation.

  347. al June 25, 2008 4:52 pm

    i think the bank broke sometime in may.

    gee, i spent a lot on megabucks the year it climbed to 37 mil. i hope that kid still has some left.

  348. al June 25, 2008 4:55 pm

    cya later….i have to rest up for the muu call at tiffany’s.

    funny, i run into old time aquaintance mel cabang at the airport. he’s doing a gig tonight where i am staying. maybe i’ll check him out.

    does he still have that spotlight??

  349. d1shima June 25, 2008 5:05 pm


    Maybe he get one searchlight now…


  350. Koauka June 25, 2008 5:12 pm

    Remember Mel’s “Fighting Cock” – awesome!

  351. kama krab June 25, 2008 5:30 pm

    Aloja everybody,

    Looking forward to the bash of the year. This is our birthday bash, they call it tsaiko bash. Looking forward to seeing the Ed Wong room packed for a night of good fun.

  352. Rob25 June 25, 2008 5:30 pm


    I could have sworn that I read you were treating me…megabucks or not!

  353. Stephen Tsai June 25, 2008 5:31 pm

    It’s official: The Princess, Faye, Liane and Kortney are coming to the party.

  354. kama krab June 25, 2008 5:36 pm

    hoo and how you like them dawgs. I mean Bulldogs. Wait there both Bulldogs. How you like them Fresno State Bulldogs. You will never hear me say that again but for today I say congrats to Fresno State for job well done and for representing the WAC in winning the National Championship.

  355. Jason June 25, 2008 5:38 pm

    kama krab: You can e-mail me, jnagaoka (at) I have a question for you.

  356. al June 25, 2008 5:39 pm

    hey st
    what about cat?

  357. Stephen Tsai June 25, 2008 5:44 pm

    no verbal yet.
    i think she’s pulling a Daniel Smith on us.

  358. kama krab June 25, 2008 5:46 pm

    eh Jason just shot you over on email. What ever question you get I can help you with.

  359. Kapolei Doc June 25, 2008 5:47 pm

    Not a Fresno fan but I am a WAC fan. Way to go Fresno and the WAC!

  360. Stephen Tsai June 25, 2008 5:49 pm

    OK, when UH goes to the Sugar Bowl, everyone is like: Yea, for the little guy.
    When Fresno State wins the World Series, I don’t see people relating it to the WAC.
    How come?

  361. JDawg June 25, 2008 6:00 pm

    Its more common for smaller schools to do well in baseball compared to football. Didnt Rice win the title a few years back?

  362. al June 25, 2008 6:03 pm

    okay…. i can;t say that i am the least bit surprised that fresno state pulled it off.’

    fresno state always seems to win the big ones., the upsets in football, basketball, you name it. they come to play with an attitude and a chip on their shoulders. i often wished that we would play with that very same swagger.

    …nuff said

  363. Pauoa Boy June 25, 2008 6:04 pm

    Good to see Fresno St. won and have there Bulldog taking a unko on the other Bulldogs. Kay it’s over now so both you Unko’s get back in the doghouse!

  364. homey ® June 25, 2008 6:14 pm

    Hello to ChinaDrew who posted at 0132 HST this morning. What city do you reside in? Errrr…you wouldn’t be VegasDrew relocated to China, would you?:?

  367. Stephen Tsai June 25, 2008 6:40 pm

    Of course, we’re bringing Leslie.

  368. Stephen Tsai June 25, 2008 6:41 pm

    Hey, are we only 15 days away?

  369. SteveM June 25, 2008 6:46 pm

    14 days, 23 hours plus…

    My meager memory is failing…who/which Kortney and Leslie?

  370. Stephen Tsai June 25, 2008 7:00 pm

    I’ve pictured Kortney a few times.

  371. bonar June 25, 2008 7:05 pm

    Yeah, it’s a victory for the WAC; thanks Al on the SJ CC guys; it’s nice that walk ons like Josh Andrews get encouragement and pub. Pics increase the effect significantly and the support for the entire team!

  372. Stephen Tsai June 25, 2008 7:10 pm

    It was interesting to see Josh Andrews after practice. He attached a parachute to his body, then sprinted around the soccer field.

  373. brew808 June 25, 2008 7:21 pm



    What happened to Liane? 😀

    ST -I received the email from Liane and Kortney, am I supposed to send them info where to send payment or are you treating them??

  375. bonar June 25, 2008 7:59 pm

    ST: I hope Andrews does well. I realize sometimes walkons don’t get a fair shake and/or there’s an undercurrent of resentment on team that a walkon should not be on the team-otherwise he would have been recruited.

  376. lakerj32 June 25, 2008 7:59 pm


    I think I’ll be there at the party. Ive just been threatened with bodily harm from Chawan coz i join the blog so Im not 100% sure. LOL.

  377. Stretch June 25, 2008 8:01 pm

    lakerj32 – speaking of bodily harm, if you don’t come to the blog party, i will damage your right foot!! wait, chawan might not like that, then you will use your left foot and beat him again.

    Howzit Tsaikos.

    sent you mail this evening. sorry so late. 😀

    Got to take my friend to practice this afternoon, after her Dr’s appt.
    I got to look at the guyz and the facility up close, and this is my take.

    1. Inoke was there 1 hour before everybody else, before 2. throwing to some BYU guyz. I really like Mr. Funaki. A class act. A leader. He’s acting like he’s the leader. GOOOOO INOKE!!!!!

    2. there are some Warriors who are really working hard. Its obvious when you look at them, that they’re working out somewhere else too. cut, lean, mean.

    3. the players know Florida is 66 dayz away, but some don’t impress me that they know they’re playing to win, if you know what i mean. translation: these are players I saw today who, if i were a betting man, i’d bet they are not going to start at Fla.

    4. COACH RON, the JUGS machine you donated is not working properly. I suggested to the maintenance guy to get if fixed, and gave them my cel #. Lets get it fixed. Mike Washington was using it alot, before it got broke. There are 2, and both of them are out of action. we need the JUGS machines.

  396. Garret June 25, 2008 9:34 pm

    The NY Times wrote about the Warriors today. This part of the article could have used some fact-checking.

    At Louisiana Tech in the second week of the season, the senior kicker Pat Kelly – a first-team all-WAC pick – drilled a 49-yard field goal to send the game to overtime

    This part sounded okay to me though, as they looked past the superficial criticisms that other publications have had:

    1. Despite losing Brennan and his receivers, Hawaii will still be able to move the ball (albeit less so than in 2007).

    2. The defense will be strong enough to mask most offensive deficiencies, and will keep Hawaii in games.

    3. Hawaii still plays in the WAC, and even with its losses, will be more talented than at least half of its conference brethren.

    4. The Warriors are extremely difficult to beat at home; they have lost only 10 regular-season games in Honolulu since 2001, half of which came against out-of-conference opponents.

    Abe’s head coach had a close call earlier this week.

    USC coach Pete Carroll said he was involved an auto accident Tuesday night when a Los Angeles County sheriff’s car swerved in front of him and collided with his car in Malibu.

    “I was in the fast lane and the cop came from the slow lane and pulled right in front of me to make a U-turn,” Carroll said. “(My car) got hammered.”

    Carroll said the accident occurred on Pacific Coast Highway. He said his car sustained considerable damage but he was unhurt and attended a camp for high school football players at USC on Wednesday. “We were stuck out on there for about two hours,” Carroll said.

    Good evening friends!

    Didn’t get a chance to say it earlier…DPK, the post you wrote last night was a masterpiece.! You Bulla and ? (forgot already) must have had quite a phone conversatioon. ❗ We need that one for the Tsaiko Book of Quotes that we’re going to publish in a couple of years. Leez see…project chair…DPK??? 😀

    Marlis…you also put up an awesome post. I’m also a fan of Pat Hill. I admire the academic program he put in place to get marginal student-athletes to focus on getting their degrees…well…at least staying eligible.

    Pauoa Boy…wen get chance, check out the North Island air terminal. Maybe make friends to get the inside track to fly your whole family space available to Hickam or Kaneohe MCS. Just a suggestion.

    I have a lot of respect for Phil Steele, but, I’m have my doubts with his picking Boise to win the WAC. New QB and lots of new faces on the OL. If the new guys were Jr/Sr, I could believe that they were ready to step up. But, no. And the reserves are all newbies too. One or two injuries and they could be in serious trouble. I do understand that he places a lot of weight on both Hawaii and Fresno having to play in Boise this season.

    BTW, congratulations to the champion Fresno baseball team for rep’ing the WAC. :O

    As for the JUGS, I have seen these and they are a simple design. A person with a little mechanical ability should be able to repair them for little cost. So the question is can some one who does not work for UH repair said machines? Or is this a no no??

    Pomai, I just looked at their website for maintenance and it gives lots of info for proper operation and basic maintenance for the JUGS. Depending on what it is wrong may require someone with some electronics abilities also. I would like to know if they have some kind of maintenance contract set up or if it is an in house deal.

    Just a quick post before nitenite time – the end of a very long day with reports, phone calls, faxes, and meetings. Alas, most of this will disappear come next Tuesday morning.

    Picked up the specs and supporting paperwork for the Ching Field project – look for the Warrior H in a prominent place as that is one of the requirements. Will be going over the details tomorrow afternoon between meetings although I don’t expect much in the way of surprises. Submission deadline is 2:30 pm, Friday, July 11, the day after the Blog Bash.

    Reserved two tables at the Hukilau seating 8-12 people for next Monday at 5 pm. The show starts at 6 pm. If you want to sit somewhere else or with someone else, please let me know by Sunday evening so the seats can be turned back to the management for other patrons.


    So what, where my dinnah stay?

    You won it and it will stay on my desk – in the form of a gift certificate – until you return to O`ahu. If I am gone before that happens, I’ll leave it with Jason.

    STRETCH: The check is in the mail, the check is the mail, hihothedairyo, the check is in the mail.

    ROB25: Did Ronnie share any of her gift from DaDocs with you?

    Another question: What do Rich/Margo/BG/Betty/the Eastman Family have in common. Another great prize to the winner. And, no, the above folks are not eligible to win and they aren’t going to tell you either.

    Finally, what was the reason I asked the question answered by Pauoa Boy? Prize to be determined later.


  432. HiFlyer June 26, 2008 3:18 am

    I assume you are talking about the weather and NOT the crap tables??


    Sadly, I was referring to the weather and not the tables. It was way too hot, even at night, to let the kids play outside…and it isn’t great for them to not get outside play time where they can run around and play.

    You know what was even colder than the tables? The pool at the Cal. Due to some problem with how they had the AC vent blasting cold air right at the pool, the pool was ice cold the first day we tried to go to the pool! That was a huge disappointment to our kids since they had been looking forward to going to the pool. It was also weird to have it be so cold that even my kids could not tolerate being in there for more than a minute.

    The Cal fixed things sometime that day and the next time we tried the water was cold, but only really cold and not freezing. It was too cold for Lori to get in so I stayed in the pool to watch the kids and was the only one who had to freeze.

    garret…..did dan kelly change his name to pat kelly?


    I do not know how the NY Times made that mistake! I expect Dan to be up for some awards (at least All-Conference, maybe some mention for All-America) after this season, so I would hope that they learn the correct spelling soon.

  439. Garret June 26, 2008 5:05 am

    Lots of coverage of Fresno State’s baseball championship. I’m glad that this will bring credibility to the WAC for years, and UH should benefit in the future.

  440. Garret June 26, 2008 5:09 am

    I wonder if UH could sell seats like this at Aloha Stadium and make some extra money? There may be some room in the end zones…this would be a way to add some premium seating without any construction needed. And it will give additional seats for UH to sell for the games that are sell-outs.

    How much would you pay to flop down in a cushy leather recliner behind the end zone at KU’s Memorial Stadium?

    Right there on the field, watching the Jayhawks do battle on the gridiron?

    What if they threw in free food and drinks, along with flat-screen TVs to watch the replays?

    How about $2,500 each for the season, or $2,200, if you switch out the recliner for a stool? Oh, and when the season ends you can buy your chair.

    The new seats will be 6 feet off the ground and 10 yards behind the end zone. Close enough for a long pass to land in a fan’s lap.

    “It’s up close and personal,” Marchiony said. “I think that adds to the excitement.”

    The new seats are seven times more expensive than what had been the most expensive nonsuite season tickets — $300 — for Jayhawk football games.

    But that hasn’t stopped some fans from plopping down their cash. While none of the 28 less-expensive stools has sold yet, 50 of the 56 recliners have been bought.

    Air Force is getting an indoor practice facility. It looks like the MWC is ahead of the WAC in this facility race. And it has a big impact on recruiting–check out the commits that TCU has, and how recruit after recruit cites the facilities…many credit their indoor facility for being one of the keys to their recruiting success.

    UH doesn’t need an indoor facility as bad as many other schools, but getting the Ching Complex finished will give a huge recruiting boost. At least that will equalize some of the facility comparisons, as right now UH is at a handicap vs. other WAC and MWC schools (I’m not using BCS-conference schools as a comparison for facilities).

    The recently formed USAFA Endowment Group has $1 million in hand for the construction of such a building and is expecting another $2 million “within in a month or so,” Air Force athletic director Hans Mueh said Wednesday.

    Mueh said the proposed facility, which will be similar to the climate-controlled, 70,000-square foot Sam Baugh Indoor Practice Facility at TCU, will cost about $8-9 million.

    Hard to believe that an Alabama football player would sell cocaine in the parking lot of their football complex!

    Former Alabama linebacker Jimmy Johns sold cocaine to an individual cooperating with the West Alabama Narcotics Squad in the parking lot of the Crimson Tide’s football complex, according to a signed deposition filed Wednesday by the task force.

    Johns, a 6-foot-2, 233-pound senior, was arrested Tuesday and charged with five counts of selling cocaine and one count of possession of a controlled substance. After more than 24 hours in jail, the former blue-chip recruit posted $120,000 bond around 10 a.m. Wednesday. He was suspended indefinitely from school and kicked off the football team.

    But before Johns’ career ended, he violated NCAA rules this spring by allowing his image to be used on a Web site promoting the breeding and purchasing of pit bulls.

    Hi brew! The $1 bowling was awesome and we are going to have to take the kids bowling every time we go to Vegas. Next time we’ll make sure to give enough time so Lori and I can go, and my parents want to go too.

    The Lapahoehoe Class of 1954 reunion was awesome, and I really enjoyed talking with my Mom’s classmates again. I also had a great time with my sister’s family, it is especially nice to see her kids again and see how they are growing.

    After all the work that I got done, my boss didn’t mind the time off. We submitted proposals to the National Science Foundation and the Army within a week, plus I wrote a paper to the MILCOM conference and a draft of a proposal for the Navy. That was like a month’s work in 7 days!

    That Vegas bowling alley also has “Kid’s Day” on Wednesdays. For $10 for each kid, they get $10 credit for their video games, all they can bowl, and a free buffet for the kids.

    pono’s sister, lei, was my classmate. my ex used to live with lisa strand, marcie wurts, and diane sebastian. what a small world.

    ok, time to hele on to meet the gang for breakfast of champion, then warm up at the range, get one afternoon game and if any tsaikos are in the area, going to see darth vader and do some negotiation about “pricing the products”. if i no do that, the dark side merchants going try to “price fix” others.

    bhf2, braddah, you sharp as ever. my friend stretch said that no more darkside on Oahu. i hope he not lying!!!

    the journey to see darth is a long one, so put my spaceship in auto pilot and hopefully, the buggah can navigate it’s way home tomorrow. have a great day
    and remember, the sun is going to energize you and make you feel good!!!!

    I am a Browns fan from Argentina. Very nice Browns information.
    I am a big fan of Braylon Edwards and am disappointed that Winslow was traded.
    I hope to be in Cleveland for a game this fall.
