Safety Keao Monteilh has shorn his long hair, thus earning the nickname “A.C. Slater” from cornerback Ryan Mouton. Here’s a pix of Mouton and the new-look Monteilh:

Midori, the drink, is sweet and spunky. So, too, is Midori7, our blogger.
I’ve been a UH fan as long as I can remember. My parents (aka A-House & Mrs. A-House), started taking me to football games when I was 3 (I refused to be left at grandma’s house any more). My mom says I was more interested in kicking the chair in front of me or wanting the food other people brought than watching the game. Somewhere along the line, I started paying attention and have been a die-hard UH fan ever since.
My parents (who are the BEST, by the way) have had season tickets for football for more than 30 years. We also watched a lot of baseball (mostly during the Murakami era). Saw the Islanders play & Derek Tatsuno pitch at Aloha Stadium. I remember going to the airport to get autographs from the UH baseball team when they returned from the College World Series in 1980. Sat in Klum Gym to watch the Wahine & Men’s volleyball teams. Great times!
My first semester at UH was most memorable because my next door neighbor in the dorms happened to be Jason Elam. Back then, the student following at football games was awesome! Saw many games from the Super Rooter section. I found the perfect on-campus job my freshman year…working at Rainbow Stadium (later re-named Les Murakami Stadium). What could be better than getting paid to watch baseball?
We also followed UH on the road. Got to see UH beat Illinois in the 1992 Holiday Bowl in San Diego. My dad & I went to see UH vs. UCLA in the 1995 Men’s Volleyball Finals. We’ve traveled to Las Vegas (of course), Reno & New Orleans to support the UH football team. Our next destination is Gainesville.
My love of sports is not only for UH. My favorite pro teams are the Lakers, 49ers & Dodgers. I also cheer for the Redskins (yes, even before Colt) & the Cubs. Got to see the Baseball Hall of Fame (Cooperstown, New York), Football Hall of Fame (Canton, Ohio) & even the cornfield in Dyersville, Iowa, where the movie Field of Dreams was filmed.
Other than sports, some of my favorite things include the Harry Potter books, Netflix, 80’s music, chocolate, pizza, pancakes & Dairy Queen cones and blizzards.
Many thanks to Stephen Tsai for creating and maintaining the Warrior Beat. The Tsaikos I’ve met are truly the nicest, funniest, most generous people I know.
