Irene Wilton, 90

Irene Wilton, the mother of volleyball coach Mike Wilton, died today from injuries suffered when she was struck by a car in Santa Barbara, the Santa Barbara Independent reported.
At age 90, Mrs. Wilton was a feisty woman who had hiked regularly.

Here’s the article:

Irene Wilton, the 90-year old pedestrian struck by a car while crossing the intersection of Foothill and Cieneguitas roads on May 29, died this afternoon at Cottage Hospital as a result of her injuries. Though the California Highway Patrol has stated that alcohol was not a factor in the accident, it remains under investigation. No charges have been filed against the 84-year-old woman who hit Wilton.

Running backs Leon Wright-Jackson and Jake Heun have worked extra hard this summer. Wright-Jackson, who weighs about 220 pounds, is trying to gain strength while maintaining his speed. Heun, who is from Alaska, has lost about six pounds running sprints in Manoa’s heat.

In this picture, Wright-Jackson helps Heun stretch out:

This is why blog hosts are not full-time photographers. I didn’t think I had all three subjects in the picture. So I tried to slide one out. But they all got into the frame … only they’re all pushed to the left. From the left, Jon Medeiros, Aaron Bain and Kealoha Pilares. shaka.JPG

Of our blog readers, d1shima is one of the most talented singers. ( He also delivers a strong voice of opinion, insight and humor as one of our frequent posters. Meet the Dean of bloggers:

Greetings All.
I’m d1shima and I am a Tsaiko. (All together now, “Hi, d1shima.”)

I grew up in “Da Housing” two blocks away from Farrington with my Mom and one of my brothers. Although I was fortunate enough to have earned scholarships to attend private schools throughout most of my primary education, the tempestuousness of youth got the best of me during Senior year and I was “allowed” to graduate from FHS. The good news there is that’s where I met Mrs. d1shima and we’ve been together since. (Everybody say, “Awwww”)

My Dad was a big sports fan and although divorced from my Mom he still played a big enough role in raising me to pass that along. Friday afternoons in the fall would find me on the bus from Nuuanu (shout out to Hongwanji Mission School) to Mo’ili’ili for HS football at the Termite Palace. At first, my interest was mostly in the bands, the cheering sections and the cheerleaders (even had songleaders back then). I still can remember a songleader named Emme for FHS that we all now watch on her TV specials.


Eventually though I started falling in love with the football itself. The big thrill was going on Saturday nights to watch UH play. I had no idea who Linfield, Humboldt St., and Pacific were or where they came from but I lived and died by the way the ‘Bows played on those nights. Larry Arnold, Larry Cole, Golden Richards were heroes.

Interestingly, fuud became associated with football then, too. The saimin, stadium hotdogs, Frosty Malts! Even as I write this I start salivating! Haha. Oh, and don’t forget the boiled peanuts; to this day, I’m the only one in the family who enjoys dried boiled peanuts.

So fast forward to present day and the heroes for me now are my two sons, #1 just finished his second year of teaching back at his Alma Mater, St. Louis, and of course, many of you know that #2 just graduated last week from there. Those guys love football. And they amaze me constantly with how devotedly they work to prepare themselves for it as a coach now for one and as a player for the other.

Mrs. d1shima and I celebrated our 25th anniversary last summer and now with #2 going away to Linfield this coming August, we’ll begin the transition to “empty-nesters.” We’re both glad I found this Tsaiko community to be a part of that. I started reading the Warrior Beat last season in search of some info for the Las Vegas game. Little did I know that what I would actually find was such a fine, fun and frolicking community.
And now I’ll get to share all that I find out about Linfield.

    Oh finally, da door is open…Good morning ST!

  3. Annoddah Dave June 3, 2008 7:05 am

    ST & Tsaiko Blog Dogs,

    ST…you should always take pictures with two eyes open. That way the format of the pictures will be centered. Learned that from a photog.

    d1shima, thanks for sharing your bio. I too remember the Termite Palace days and eating boiled peanuts.

  5. lonomakana June 3, 2008 7:14 am

    Top 10. Nice post from d1shima. His #2 will be going to school at Linfield with one of my top students.

  6. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 7:14 am

    Wow, wea stay everybody?
    Did I make them all give up da blog?

  7. Koauka June 3, 2008 7:17 am


    Brah, geez you one public school grad. Right on! Everytime I get one chance to eat Frosty Malts, I think of Honolulu Stadium. Good times.

    And I gotta admit, being a St Louis man is special. Best wishes to your family.

  8. koakane™ June 3, 2008 7:19 am

    morning everyone

    most excellent d1 and shaka bradah

  9. LizKauai June 3, 2008 7:19 am

    Welcome lonomakana!

    Aw-right, d1 (and Mrs d1) !!!

    gigi- Greg Shepherd says HI!

    HI HO!

  10. whitey June 3, 2008 7:20 am

    Good morning Tsaikos.

    d1shima, great bio. All this time I thought you were an older rooster, but you are still a young cock. Hahahahahaaaahhh! Well done. Congratulations to both your sons.

  11. LizKauai June 3, 2008 7:20 am

    haha, ST is still tweaking…
    woo hoo!

  12. Kekoa June 3, 2008 7:21 am

    D1 ~ Good Job!…Can’t wait for Paht 2 – Da Linfield Legacy. Da boys should be proud of dere Papa.

    In an empty nest, I’ve heard it said that you can get your newspaper, pipe, and slippahs delivered with a little more speed and quickness. True or not true?

  13. Tombo Ahi June 3, 2008 7:22 am

    great bio d1! and i agree, boiled peanuts are awesome. though maybe i haven’t had them dried. anyway, i also wanted to pass along highlights of The Chad Owens Show from last night:

  14. gigi-hawaii © June 3, 2008 7:23 am

    d1, you write so well. You should write a book! Thanks for sharing. I can’t wait to meet you on the 19th.

    Liz, I’m surprised Greg Shepherd remembers me — or was he just being polite?

  15. Stephen Tsai June 3, 2008 7:27 am

    Damien . . . Farrington.
    Toe-MAY-toe … Toe-MAH-toe.

  16. Loa June 3, 2008 7:28 am

    hey d1,
    great bio, thanks for sharing
    brought back a lot of memories
    happy belated 25 to you and the mrs.

    and i learned a couple more f’s to add to the list, hehe

  17. Kekoa June 3, 2008 7:29 am

    Gigi ~ Aloma & Paloma came to visit this weekend. All I said was, “Gigi golfs now!” I could hear the laughter reverberating all the way back to Pearl City Highlands! (Tsai…)

  18. Loa June 3, 2008 7:29 am

    whitey – rotflmffao 😆

  19. gigi-hawaii © June 3, 2008 7:32 am

    Kekoa, I’m suuuure glad I brought humor back into their lives! haha

    ST, I finally broke down and emailed Scott Morifuge about the fast blog clock and asked him if he could fix it. Let’s see if he does.

  20. gigi-hawaii © June 3, 2008 7:33 am

    sorry, Morifuji

  21. LizKauai June 3, 2008 7:33 am

    Mighty MOUSE is in da HOUSE!!!

    “I still got it!”

  22. I Believe June 3, 2008 7:33 am

    aloha kakahiaka-

    nice to ‘meet you’ d1- ah…frosty malts…and ‘dried’ boiled peanuts? used to help make boiled peanuts for my hubby’s family store, which were ono, but not sure about the ‘dried’ part…sounds like an oxymoron…

    great to learn from ST’s article that Tyler is getting it together re: academics- Tyler, we are rooting for you! Keep up the good work!

    good day to all…

    Go Warriors!

  23. Blackie June 3, 2008 7:35 am

    I just delete the pictures I don’t like. Thank goodness for digital cameras, otherwise I’d be spending a fortune on wasted film!

  24. Kekoa June 3, 2008 7:35 am

    Ono for boiled peanuts now! Whatever happened to Frosty Malts? Did Aliens wisk them away to another planet or what?

  25. LizKauai June 3, 2008 7:37 am

    I said ” G – C- H…ley” says hi.
    Greg said “H…ey, nice lady.”

    I’d say he remembered you.

  26. I Believe June 3, 2008 7:41 am

    if you didn’t watch the video of d1, you gotta do so…not only is he a talented singer, but get one bon dancer accompanying him!

  27. whitey June 3, 2008 7:42 am

    d1, next time you come to Maui, plan to see us and I will get you some boiled peanuts on the dry side. My friend is starting up a business and his specialty is boiled peanuts and pickled mango (and sometime pipanola).

    time to go for breakfast of champions, so you all have a great day.

  28. Blackie June 3, 2008 7:44 am

    CO is one of my most favorite players of all time. I wish he could have done better in the NFL. I thought he had a legitimate chance with the Bucs, but I don’t think he made it past the first round of cuts.

  29. koakane™ June 3, 2008 7:45 am


    ST, I finally broke down and emailed Scott Morifugi about the fast blog clock and asked him if he could fix it. Let’s see if he does.

    yea it has been going up like the price of gas 😆

    mentioned about the time stamp also thanks for following up

  30. Stephen Tsai June 3, 2008 7:46 am

    Here’s a video of d1shima preparing for a Karaoke Call:

  31. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 7:49 am

    Mahalo all.

    Lookng forward to midori7’s bio tomorrow!


  32. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 7:50 am


    Stephen, you funny guy!

  33. MeiLing June 3, 2008 7:50 am

    Aloha kakahiaka!

    ST ~ Great pics!

    Wonderful BIO d1shima! It was great to meet you at the mini-CC in Feb. Look forward to hearing you sing at a K-call!

  34. djmitcho June 3, 2008 7:54 am

    Great bio d1. Hope everyone has a great day.

  35. Stephen Tsai June 3, 2008 7:56 am

    When Owens played at UH, the reporters all agreed he sorta-sorta resembled Sylvester Stallone.
    So, naturally, because everybody is chicken, I say to CO: “Yo, Adrian!”
    To which, he said: “I’m Rocky, and I’m going to knock you out.”

  36. jasonk June 3, 2008 8:09 am

    LOL…mean the shocker!

  37. bonar June 3, 2008 8:14 am

    37th! Great pics and bio…

  38. tom mui June 3, 2008 8:15 am


    What kind of camera do you have?

  39. g-nalo June 3, 2008 8:32 am

    Brah, geez you one public school grad. Right on! Everytime I get one chance to eat Frosty Malts, I think of Honolulu Stadium. Good times.

    Honolulu Stadium – frosty malt, boiled peanuts, and S & S Saimin, classics.

    “line-ups, 10 cents! get your line-ups!”
    “popcorn, peanuts, chips, coke!”

    the smell of cigars, the shave ice shop across King St. (rainbow flavor the bestest), an okazuya i believe on the corner of King and Hausten, DON’T walk under the bleachers.

    anyone remember the brand name of the stadium clock? [i don’t]

    and oh yeah….Good Morning to all!

  40. I Believe June 3, 2008 8:38 am

    ey- ST’s getting techie posting d1’s karaoke warm up (#30)…which sure brought back memories…and, I’ll admit it, chicken skin and a teary eye…say what you will about Michael Jackson, but he has talent….and it is still amazing, this many years later, to see people with such radically different voices and styles harmonzing…classic!

  41. Mad Dog June 3, 2008 8:46 am

    ST coming on 1420 “shortly”

  42. I Believe June 3, 2008 8:49 am

    Tombo Ahi- thanks for sharing vid of Chad Owens- I adore him- here’s a walk on to UH who gave his all- worked for everything he ever got! Was a tremendous asset to the team and helped to make Chang look good. I’m so bummed that pro efforts have been so challenging-

    ST- to what do you attribute the challenges? And, what about Texas team?

  43. Da Punchbowl Kid June 3, 2008 8:57 am

    Warriors are gonna have a few big guys at RB. The QB to reciever ratio would seem to present a problem. Will everybody get enough reps?

    He’s D1, D only, and one of D nicest guys you could ever hope to meet. 🙂 Great bio, Kalhi guy!

  44. Mad Dog June 3, 2008 8:58 am

    ST, the Grand PooBah, now on 1420.

  45. James June 3, 2008 9:06 am

    Good morning all…

    D1…loved the bio…man you’ve had an historic life. Hope I can say the same when I get that up in age… know me, I just turned 29…..BWAAHAHAHAHAHHA….only kidding…great bio though brought back some memories……

    ST…That’s heresy to say Farrington=Damien….the Farrington guys wouldn’t like that….mwahahahahahaha

    Good to see CO had an awesome game last night. I just keep thinking some guy named Warner also started off playing AFL…than won a SB in the NFL……hmmmmmmm


  46. Koauka June 3, 2008 9:06 am

    I think the Honolulu Stadium clock was BULOVA.

  47. James June 3, 2008 9:08 am

    Hey…D1 was a townie…but now sorta lives on da wesside by koakane….my sympathies for you D1…..BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  48. Jason June 3, 2008 9:09 am

    d1shima for President! He can sing his States of the Union.

  49. Da Punchbowl Kid June 3, 2008 9:11 am

    Let’s hope CO can keep it at this level. I was watching his highlight clips and braddah was GOIN’ OFF!

  50. sjmacro June 3, 2008 9:16 am

    D1-was Beau your ghost writer? 😆 great bio and late congrats to you and the Mrs. for 25 yrs.

    ST: your pictures are better than the ones on the HPD recovered stolen property line-up. 😀 You would think they would have CSI or EBay quality photos. Should be good deals at the auction if you want to upgrade your film or point and shoot camera.

  51. g-nalo June 3, 2008 9:18 am

    <I think the Honolulu Stadium clock was BULOVA.

    Koauka – sounds about right. i believe the clock was changed twice in the history of the stadium but i saw only one.

  52. Garret June 3, 2008 9:21 am


    Awesome bio! I loved the frosty malts and boiled peanuts when I was a kid and would love them now too.

  53. Garret June 3, 2008 9:22 am


    Thank you for the pictures and I enjoyed reading about the Warriors in today’s article. Would it be possible to get articles and photos after each of the MWF practices?

  54. Koauka June 3, 2008 9:25 am

    Did anyone get to hear the entire ST interview with Bobby Curran. Thought I heard some interesting comments the Warriors road travel plans.

  55. stacyj June 3, 2008 9:28 am

    Great bio d1!

    ST, yeah, us Farrington folks don’t like the FHS=DMHS.

  56. addahknowjoe June 3, 2008 9:34 am

    Dee-One/Dee-Only/Shima! Excellent bio, my friend.

    I’m flattered to read Larry Arnold was a small kid hero of yours. He was my coach back in high school. Very humble, humorous man. Funny, back then we were clueless to his accomplishments. It wasn’t till Raphel Cherry began getting recognition to possibly being the all-time passer that Larry’s name started coming up in the news. We were like, “Whoa? Coach, das you dey talking about? You wuz one qwatabak for UH?”

  57. James June 3, 2008 9:44 am

    Ohhhh….Larry Arnold….I read that as Larry Price…mwahahahahaha…

  58. James June 3, 2008 9:46 am

    stacyj….actually, I think the name will soon change from DMHS to St. Damien HS…or St. Damien School since they now have 7th and 8th grades….of course, they were saying that when I was there but now that Father Damien is on the verge of sainthood, it may come to fruition….

  59. Da Punchbowl Kid June 3, 2008 9:49 am

    *DPK is almost embarassed to admit he played in the Ole Termite Palace. Thass a longgggggg time ago.* 😳

  60. James June 3, 2008 10:10 am

    DPK…don’t be embarassed…embrace your AARP status…mwahahahahah..j/k my friend… :mrgreen:

    okay gang have to go run errands…BBL

  61. SteveM June 3, 2008 10:13 am

    d1shima good thing you missed the bio deadline last year… wouldn’t know about your karaoke talent with pictures and video back then 🙂

    A good bio from a quiet good samaritan!

  62. al June 3, 2008 10:13 am

    d1……..only one word can describe your bio, “awwwwwww.”

  63. al June 3, 2008 10:14 am

    d1…judging from the video. you were a lot skinnier and had such a sweet demeanor back then.

  64. al June 3, 2008 10:16 am

    “line-ups, 10 cents! get your line-ups!”

    that would be me. here i thought that you were younger than me.

    no forget, chunky’s, all star drive inn, hisago’s, and stadium bowl-o-drome.

  65. al June 3, 2008 10:17 am

    interestingly, a-house and i knew the grandkids of the “peanut lady”. we old or what?

  66. Kaimuki Kid June 3, 2008 10:23 am

    I always loved the Teriyaki Plate at Chunky’s Drive Inn where the First Hawaiian Bank is now…miss the Teri-Beef and their Mac Salad, Shagging foul balls that left the Stadium, the impromtu drag racing on Isenburg Street, The Guri-Guri from the Drive Inn on King and Hausten…

  67. Barry Markowitz June 3, 2008 10:25 am

    D1, If you still had a program of UH vs. Pacific from your era, I bet you would see a minor assistant coach named Pete Carroll listed. It is ironic that yesterday I found a few Termite Palace photos of man child Mosiula Tatupu blasting through huge holes…didn’t see if it was DPK on defense.

    Re: Jake Heun…anyone notice that his arms are larger than most UH Warriors thighs?

    ST: What’s the scoops on the UH independent contractor paid performer’s son’s indication that he is a UH Warrior this year, not a PSU Viking?

  68. Stretch June 3, 2008 10:27 am

    d1 – great bio, thanks. btw – where’s the Termite Palace??

  69. Jason June 3, 2008 10:31 am

    al: I’m getting old, so you’re getting old. 😉

  70. al June 3, 2008 10:31 am

    kaimuki kid…..sounds like you grew up in moiilili.

    chunky’s fav: beef cutlet gravy all over.

  71. al June 3, 2008 10:32 am

    thanks jason.

  72. Garret June 3, 2008 10:33 am

    I hope that d1shima doesn’t mind, but I did a couple of extra google searches in honor of his bio day. First article: Shawn Withy-Allen update!

    Former University of Hawaii quarterback Shawn Withy-Allen, who directed the Fayetteville Guard to a 27 wins in three seasons between 2005 and 2007, has resigned with the team in hopes of salvaging the franchise’s American Indoor Football Association playoff hopes.

    The Guard went 12-0 last season with Withy-Allen at quarterback and won the Indoor Football Championship. But with a rewarding new job with a church-sponsored youth program and planning to get married, Withy-Allen decided to hang up his cleats with the Guard after 2007.

    However, with Fayetteville struggling at 3-7 and having lost three straight games, Withy-Allen has decided to come back to help his old team. The Guard has four games left in the regular season, including Saturday’s home game at the Crown Coliseum against the Huntington Heroes.

  73. Garret June 3, 2008 10:34 am

    The Washington Post’s report on the Redskins’ practice mentions Colt’s hip prevented him from practicing yesterday.

    Campbell participated fully in the session, but many players did not, including cornerback Carlos Rogers (knee surgery), wide receiver Antwaan Randle El (knee surgery), linebacker Rocky McIntosh (knee surgery), rookie quarterback Colt Brennan (hip surgery), safety Vernon Fox (knee surgeries), rookie safety Kareem Moore (knee surgery), defensive end Erasmus James (knee surgery) and tight end Tyler Ecker (groin).

  74. Garret June 3, 2008 10:36 am

    The Washington Times noted that Colt *did* participate in individual drills. I think that they didn’t even let him do that in their previous practices so this is an indication that Colt’s recovery is progressing!

    Rookie quarterback Colt Brennan, coming off knee surgery, took part in individual drills.

  75. Garret June 3, 2008 10:37 am

    Jacksonville discussion mentions Chad Owens. Interesting that they mentioned that his size was his problem and the punt drops were not mentioned.

    Have you seen anything in D’Juan Woods that separates him from previous spring phenoms such as Chad Owens and Charles Sharon? Or is there a good chance he will fade away, not be mentioned at all once the season gets close, like those two?
    Vic: Woods is bigger and more physically impressive than the other two. That’s the big difference. Woods is a big guy: 6-1, 210. The fear with Owens, because he was so small, was sending him over the middle. Sharon’s shortcoming was his inability to get off the jam. Woods is big enough and strong enough to do both. I don’t know whether he’ll fade away or not. I haven’t forgotten that he’s an undrafted guy, but I see skills in him that lead me to believe he’s got a chance to stick around. I wanna see him block. I wanna see him in a real physical test. He has the muscle to be a physical receiver; I think he almost has to be a physical receiver to stick in the league, because I don’t see a lot of explosion in him. His body type and his hands remind me more of Hines Ward than Randy Moss, if you know what I mean.

  76. g-nalo June 3, 2008 10:37 am

    “line-ups, 10 cents! get your line-ups!”

    that would be me. here i thought that you were younger than me.

    no forget, chunky’s, all star drive inn, hisago’s, and stadium bowl-o-drome.

    hey now i AM younger than you, granted not by much. 🙂
    don’t exactly remember when i first started going to ILH games, but i recall watching Elroy Chong, Russ Francis, Joe Story, Mufi Hanneman, etc.. players of that era.

    i remember Pride granted he’s of a younger generation. maybe if i knew DPK’s real name, it might ring a bell?

    btw – the football poses on the line-ups were always the same, the heisman pose.

  77. Butlerdidit June 3, 2008 10:40 am

    I hate the way private schools unload students even at the last-minute zero-hour. I know someone who spent 12 years at Punahou, from Kindergarten on, and had to go to Roosevelt at the end because of “excessive” class cuts. The guy who showed no mercy later on had his own progeny busted for drugs, so bachi on him. Her story was that she was on the Mainland looking at prospective colleges as she had been encouraged to do. Anybody think they looked the other way when Michelle Wie cut class?

  78. Garret June 3, 2008 10:40 am

    Chad Owens really put up some amazing stats yesterday and his team scored 65 points. So, I was surprised that the headline of this article credited the other team’s *defense* for beating Chad’s team.

    Chad Owens, who puréed the Dragons’ secondary and kickoff coverage unit for 360 yards, scored his fifth touchdown on a two-play, 33-yard drive to make the score 66-59.

  79. Garret June 3, 2008 10:41 am

    Another article on Chad’s game.

    As for the middle portion of the final Week 14 game of the season, the Crush looked impressive. Crush WR CHAD OWENS returned the first kickoff return for a touchdown this season for Colorado on the first play of the second half. The 56-yard return was the first in 78 tries this season and tied the ballgame at 38.

    Owens finished his night with 10 receptions for 132 yards and five touchdowns, including the returned kick.

  80. Garret June 3, 2008 10:43 am

    Pat Hill testified yesterday in the trial of a former Fresno State player.

    Fresno State football coach Pat Hill testified Monday in former player Jason Shirley’s defense against four misdemeanor counts, but the defense’s primary witness was Dr. William Carveth.

    Hill’s appearance turned a few heads in the jury box.

    The defense showed video of the play on which Shirley suffered the concussion, and Hill was asked if he noticed Shirley on the play.

    “What I really noticed in that play,” Hill said, “was recovering the fumble in the end zone.”

  81. Garret June 3, 2008 10:46 am

    Article about one of Florida’s new coaches. I think he’s their DL coach.

    When Dan McCarney recruited in Florida as Iowa State’s head football coach, he had to explain where his school was and what kind of program he had.

    Now, when McCarney shows up in Florida high schools, he has a product as recognizable there as beaches and sunsets.

    The Florida job opened when Greg Mattison left to become an assistant coach with the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens. Coaches at programs like Florida’s never suffer from a lack of opportunities.

    “Urban and I had never worked together, never coached against each other,” McCarney said. “He was at Bowling Green and Utah, and I was at Iowa State. But we became good friends and had a mutual respect. We hit it off and stayed in touch through the years.”

  82. Garret June 3, 2008 10:47 am

    Q&A with Boise State’s head coach. Kind of funny how they will be using shotgun more this season and UH will be using it less.

    Q: You pushed the tempo in spring ball. What were your impressions of that effort and will we see a faster-paced offense in the fall?

    A: “I loved it, and I loved it first and foremost because we’re going to see a lot of that on defense if nothing else, and it’s very hard to simulate those types of things with the scout team. It’s great for our defense to have to face that. The second thing is, we’ve always been fairly successful in no-huddle situations, so if we decide to increase that as a portion of our offense, I think it could possibly make us more effective. We will do some of it. Percentage wise, we haven’t solved that yet.”

    Q: You also experimented with more shotgun snaps. Will that continue?

    A: “We will do maybe more of it, but we will not be exclusive. That’s not us. We don’t like to be exclusive any one thing. We still feel it’s important for this program to be under center.”

    Colorado backed out of games with LSU and scheduled Fresno State instead.

    The Colorado football program postponed a planned home-and-home series with Louisiana State in 2011 and 2012 and replaced it by renewing a series with Fresno State.

    Although contracts still must be signed, Fresno State recently agreed to a two-for-one, home-and-home series beginning in Boulder in 2011, at Fresno in 2012 and returning to Boulder in 2013, CU associate athletic director for sports information Dave Plati said.

    Colorado did not have to pay LSU a penalty to get out of the series with the defending national champion because the contract with the Tigers, first announced in 2006, had not been signed. Plati said CU still hopes to add LSU to future schedules, but it would likely be more than a decade from now.

    Nice bio D1shima,

    Enjoyed reading it. Congratulations on your sons graduation. I assume he will be playing ball at Linfield. The Wildcats take football very seriously as you probably know, Its a little school that plays a big brand of football. Enjoyed my years there. I’m sure he will too..

    This Fantasy Football analyst tried to pick the best college football defense for fantasy football players this season. It is nice that he is worried about UH’s offense when discussing Oregon State’s defense.

    20) Beavers, Oregon St.
    The Beaver’s defense was 4th in sacks and 6th in turnovers in 2007. Bad news for the Beavers is they lose eight starters including their entire front seven. However, like Virginia Tech, the Beavers consistently overachieve in the turnover and sack department so don’t count them out completely. Especially with their two sack leaders from 2007 in defensive ends Victor Butler (10) and Slade Norris (9) assuming starting roles in 2008. Despite the losses, the Beavers should also start a veteran group with nine upperclassman making the losses more palatable. Non-conference games against Hawaii, Utah and Penn State are cause for concern. Tier: D2 Returning Starters: 3 2007 Stats: 22.6 Pts agst, 235.54 yds pass agst, 70.6 yds rush agst, 34 turnovers

    The NY state auditor has a big problem with how Rutgers sent friends and family members to their bowl game in 2006. I wonder what that auditor would say if he saw the full Sugar Bowl list for UH…

    A state audit released today took Rutgers University to task for spending thousands of dollars to send friends and family of athletic staff members to the Texas Bowl football game in 2006.

    The university paid airfare, hotel and per diems for the spouses, guests and children of the athletic staff at the Texas Bowl game in Houston. In-room movies, valet parking, room service, internet connections and phone charges totaling $11,000 also were paid.

  88. koakane™ June 3, 2008 10:56 am

    crap g-nalo you brought up some names from the past

    Joe Story qb from Kalani remember what he did and became know for?

  89. Garret June 3, 2008 10:56 am

    This popped up on my standard UH google search.

    The Mustangs aren’t holding official practices, but June Jones is once again making headlines. At the end of April Jones, won the Byron Nelson Celebrity-Am along with teammates Dodge Carter, Philip Cullum and Donny Evans.

    At the beginning of May, Jones was honored with the Kulia I Ka Nu’u Award for Leadership by the Hawaii Chamber of Commerce of Northern California in San Francisco. The award translates into “strive for the summit.”

    The SMU football coach will hit the baseball diamond. During SMU night, hosted by the Texas Rangers at the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, on Wednesday, June 4, at 7:05 p.m. Jones will throw out the first pitch. SMU students, faculty, staff and friends of the university can get tickets at a discounted price.

    Great Bio; I enjoyed reading it very much as it brought back a lot of memories for me. So from one Kalihi boy to another and fellow Farrington HS grads (albeit 20 years or so apart!)… Go GOVS!

    And congrats to you and the Mrs. on your 25th anniversary. You folks did a great job in raising your two sons.

    Thanks for sharing!

  96. Kaimuki Kid June 3, 2008 11:23 am

    Just before my time at Kalani, but I had a lot of friends whose older brothers played with Joe Story. Joe Story was super quick and could cut really well but it was the fact putting on pads and gear did not slow him down one bit…He went on to become an Olympic Medalist in Team Handball

  97. homey ® June 3, 2008 11:24 am

    So that’s what d1shima looks like!

  105. homey ® June 3, 2008 11:47 am

    Stretch – SteveM posted notable Tsaiko’s, on his website, who do not have their bio’s posted yet I would say either A-Sports, UHfan808, or Midori7. Those 3 can just talk talk talk talk talk!

    your grandma would slap you on the bumbulla.

    not, “make a__”

  107. Stretch June 3, 2008 11:49 am

    homey – agreed!!

  108. al June 3, 2008 11:49 am

    i was gonna comment about the two guys in the background.

    didn’t know koakane was a lefty or is he drinking two fisted?

    bulla, take off that ear ring. no wonder you are a crybaby.

  109. homey ® June 3, 2008 11:50 am

    Bulla – ah, you’re use to playing with yourself.

  110. MeiLing June 3, 2008 11:50 am

    homey, you sould know what d1shima looks like…you were both at the mini-muu at Makino’s when I was home in Feb.

    Stretch, the “termite palace” was on So. King St. & Isenberg…down the street from where I lived next to the original Taniguchi Store & across the street from the old King’s Bakery. I have a video of the old stadium; my Dad’s in a picture on the video. No time to watch it to tell you what brand the clock was, tho…

  111. homey ® June 3, 2008 11:51 am

    Wow! d1shima has a personalized Tsaiko polo shirt!

  112. homey ® June 3, 2008 11:52 am

    MeiLing – That was him? He was wearing a hat and it threw me off. 😆

  113. al June 3, 2008 11:55 am

    meiLing….you do realize that the stretch was just pulling our legs right?

    and that homey, in fact, knows d1 very well. i believe d1 was a part of the entourage that escorted mr. crown royal home.

    on another note… grew up next to taniguchi store???
    darn, i worked there when i was a young teenager.

  114. g-nalo June 3, 2008 11:56 am

    g-nalo – BTW, It’s “heanuts, hophorn, ships, hoke”.

    haaaaaaa, ahhh stomach ache, good one Homey.

    didn’t try to say it myself cause didn’t think anyone would catch it? plus, not wanting to tease……but come to think of it that guy WAS an institution?

  115. homey ® June 3, 2008 11:56 am

    MeiLing – Another reason I may have not noticed is because I had to keep my eye’s on A-Sports because she steals food from other plates.

  116. homey ® June 3, 2008 11:59 am

    g-nalo – That’s right! That guy was the epitome of stadium vendors everywhere. I think they should write a bud commercial for him…

    Mr. Honolulu Stadium Heanut Vendor…

  117. g-nalo June 3, 2008 12:01 pm

    on another note… grew up next to taniguchi store???

    guess i shouldn’t be surprised, anything you DIDN’T do? 🙂

  118. homey ® June 3, 2008 12:02 pm

    Golly al, you are sure quick to post that about me and Stretch yet too wimpy to post other things. BWAHAHAHAHAHA 😆

  119. Stretch June 3, 2008 12:03 pm

    Sorry Mei Ling – since all the old futs were reminiscing about the Termite Palace, I thought I remind them that not all of us are as old as them, right Jason??!!??

  122. Stretch June 3, 2008 12:06 pm

    DPK – is the Honolulu Stadium and Termite Palace the same place??

  123. homey ® June 3, 2008 12:06 pm

    DPK – I think the heanut vendor was there.

  124. g-nalo June 3, 2008 12:09 pm

    eh not bad…….can’t remember if i pulled my zipper up but i can remember things from the termite palace??!!

    Stretch – no ack, if Jason is generation “X”, you’re somewhere near “Q”.

  125. Barry Markowitz June 3, 2008 12:09 pm

    DPK, In the summer of ’71, my El Camino H.S. QB, Bob Glick, led the Calif team to a loss here. He said they stayed in a “crummy army barracks”. His career lasted only a few games after that…when our UCLA Frosh team played him at Stanford in Oct ’71 we sort of put him out of the game for evah. I think Lynn Swann must have been the year before, ’70?

  126. Da Punchbowl Kid June 3, 2008 12:10 pm

    Remember how they had guys in little cubby holes on the back of the score board who changed the numbers on the board by hand?

  127. Addahknowsports June 3, 2008 12:11 pm

    Homes, my friend-

    Are you spreading rumors about me? How do you know it’s not you with a klepto-food complex. Bwahahaha.

    Thanks for the bio! You shared a lot.

  128. homey ® June 3, 2008 12:12 pm

    One more thing to add about d1shima.

    He and XLiz sang an awesome duet rendition of a song from the Phantom of the Opera soundtrack. It brought tears to Kekoa’s eyes and a standing ovation from the audience.

  129. Long Time UH Fan June 3, 2008 12:13 pm


    I remember that guy; used to see him around Hall Street/Kukui Street. Peanut vendor was there every game….rain or shine; she must’ve made a fortune…

    Al, so you newspaper boys used to sneak in the Stadium after you sold all your papers , eh? Yeah, Chunky’s DI made a lot of us chunky too… 🙂

  130. homey ® June 3, 2008 12:15 pm

    A-Sports – Not spreading rumors, just warnings for the unsuspecting CC participants. DPK was a victim too.

  131. Stephen Tsai June 3, 2008 12:16 pm

    Here’s the dealio. Last week, the parents/player asked if the player could join the team. The only opening is as a walk-on, to join on Aug. 25.
    However, the player may or may not have signed a scholarship agreement with the Portland State. Those agreements are not binding on the player’s part.

  132. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc June 3, 2008 12:17 pm

    Great bio, D1.?

    Mahalo to Pomai for helping out with getting into the website to look at earlier bios.

    My memories of the Stadium include Chunky’s Drive-In, the peanuts, the beer, the hot dogs, and the Frosty Malts. Today, a pale imitation is available from Carnation at various stores and Les Murakami Stadium – it may also be available at the Stan Sheriff Center, but I’ve never bought it there. I always get the Dipping Dots during games there..

    My fondest memory, however, is sitting through a Turkey Day game in the heaviest non-hurricane rainstorm I’ve ever experienced back in the late 1960s. The teams were unrecognizable within minutes.

    Look forward to other bios over the next several weeks.

  133. g-nalo June 3, 2008 12:18 pm


    I remember that guy; used to see him around Hall Street/Kukui Street. Peanut vendor was there every game….rain or shine; she must’ve made a fortune…

    i recall a peanut ‘stand’ but not sure if there was more than one? was this peanut vendor was on the mauka side of King St., near the shave ice shop, diamond head side?

    btw – ‘dried’ boiled peanuts…..hmmmm

  134. Long Time UH Fan June 3, 2008 12:18 pm

    BTW, First Hawaiian Bank has some memorabilia from the old Termite Palace…

  135. Da Punchbowl Kid June 3, 2008 12:20 pm

    You may be right. Like I said, that was a longggggg time ago. BTW I wasn’t a defensive player so much, so I only had one chance to meet Mosi in a hole to try and tackle him. I’m still in therapy. The ILH had a ton ‘o great players that year. Lots of future NFLers from various teams that year. I played on special teams, mostly.

  136. AWH June 3, 2008 12:20 pm

    WAT! I did not lay a hand on, in or near-the-vicinity-of DPK’s plate. You are makin’ that up.
    I was very good at last cc. I was forced to pay attention to my food for fear of burning my kalbi and smoking out the place.

  138. Stephen Tsai June 3, 2008 12:23 pm

    The peanut guy’s name is/was Howard.
    He lives/lived in the senior complex on Kinau/Piikoi.
    Nice guy.

  139. g-nalo June 3, 2008 12:24 pm

    sorry to keep going but one last memory…………the Termite Palace was bench seating (except for the grand stands) and we always sat in the Ewa end zone, about smack dab middle.

    during big games everyone had to SQUEEZE in tight cheek to cheek, the worse “squeeze” i recall is when UH played Grambling.

  140. el quapo's brother June 3, 2008 12:26 pm

    g-nalo……growing in the transitional period of tom sawyer-like adventures to color tv. us poor kids, did a lot of stuff that was free or we could make a dime off of.

    and no, my first surfboard was not a koa plank. i did make my own “paipo boards” and my first board was a velzy w/the 4″ rails weighing more than me.

  141. BG June 3, 2008 12:27 pm

    “Awe-right on!” What a great story of a tsolid Tsaiko…like granite, man. One of my heroes. Can see that the boys haven’t fallen far from the tree! Can tell they’re the real treasures for the ole man 😀

    BTW, my classmate (and Marauder), John Sadowski went to Linfield and represented well. I think his brother also went there and played with Linfield at the Termite Palace.

    Anyways, D1, loved reading your stuff!

  143. el quapo's brother June 3, 2008 12:29 pm

    that vendor was called, “tiger”. he was a custodian at kaimuki hs for years later on. i believe he retired about years ago.

    i grew up next to the stadium. sold papers and once got to flip the scoreboard for an islander game when the guy didn’t show up. i knew the hunched caretaker of the stadium who actually had a little cottage next to bathroom by the rear entrance.

  144. Da Punchbowl Kid June 3, 2008 12:29 pm


    He was at everygame, I think. I remember how he would finish early some games and then he would come sit in the stands with his vendor shirt pulled out and his vendor hat in his back pocket. And braddah had no problem cheering at full volume. Naturally everybody’s ears were tuned to his voice, so when he cheered, everybody turned to listen.

    Your pictures are “da bomb” – certainly lends a great artistic/photogenic take to this blog.

    Mrs A-House is the family photographer whose pictures are always centered – not like mine which is always “off-center” for whatever reason.

    BTW, any word from Coach Mack on what color shirts he wants us Hawaii fans to wear at The Swamp?

  147. Da Punchbowl Kid June 3, 2008 12:33 pm

    your right he was dea a long time. I think homey was on of da keeds that would call to him from way on top of stands. he would walk up and the dey would ask “eh you get manapua” small bwhaaa.

  153. Barry Markowitz June 3, 2008 12:45 pm

    ST, Mahalo, glad to hear that the independent contractor paid performer’s son got all the academic transfer stuff in order to help reinforce the UH Warrior’s O-line. Glad to see a kid give up a full ride football scholarship to Portland State University to add depth to our Warriors.

    Thanks for the support. Homey seems to forget that you were sitting right across me and we were all having a perfect dining experience. Far different from the other end of the table, loud and boisterous if I recall.


    I’m glad you started up the bios again. I really enjoy reading them.

    Interesting to see how all the Oahu peeps remember these things. Things sure were different on Kauai. The only “institution” I recall was the akule man. Haha.

  158. LizKauai [Believer] June 3, 2008 12:57 pm

    WassupDoc- I remember that storm. I moved to Kauai with a hubby, bro-in-law and 9 mo. old daughter and $200 in November of ’69. A week later, it started raining. And it rained for 2 weeks straight. Talk about culture shock and wanting to go back to the mainland! No tv, no going to the beach, no car, just holed up in a concrete house with those other 3 people for 2 weeks. Some people would bring us groceries and make sure we were alive.

    I made it. The other 3 moved back to the mainland eventually :mrgreen:

  159. SteveM June 3, 2008 1:00 pm

    Whao… I was sitting on the “loud and boisterous” side… and i’ll tell you one thing…

    … … … A-sports keep taking our food after she threaten to “smoke” us. After that we were like “take all the food you want”… “we’ll even have jojo show you how to role the meat in the lettuce leaf if you like but please don’t smoke us.”

  165. homey ® June 3, 2008 1:19 pm


    I was writing about food stealing at Makino’s…

    DPK was a victim at another CC, the one at Ward Warehouse. A-Sports was not involved in that one.

  172. A-House June 3, 2008 1:23 pm

    hey, koakane:

    me and Mrs A-House was at that game too!! – makai/ewa sidelines, 40 yd line about 15 rows up.

    remember how they entered the playing field?? all that music, but no one in sight until they broke from the DH makai entrance – loved that band!

    an den tey wen bus our okoles.

    several years ago, UH tried to get the band to perform on the way back from Japan, but Grambling wanted a $250-300K guarantee.

    Tsaikos: Koakane got memory yet. See picture of termite palace clock taken from Art Suehiro’s 1995 book Honolulu Stadium, where Hawaii played. Stadium shut down in 1975. University branch of First Hawaiian Bank has a mural inside showing some of the stadium’s history. One of the employees there points out her dad as one of the stock car racers back in the day.

    I was at the grambling game. full stadium but wasn’t for the game many came foa see the band. and dey neva disappoint.

    golden richards was supposed to keep UH in game but broke leg after kick off to start game. also had one haole boy playing for grambling who finally got into game after dey up by uku million points.

    oh yeah thats right. back then their band was a huge deal and yep, they didn’t disappoint. they had a lot of members and it LOOKED like they filled the entire field, to me anyway.

    earlier i couldn’t think of their big name player but now think it was Gary “big hands” Johnson, the defensive tackle.

    you have a good memory, i NOW recall the haole boy geting in but don’t remember the Golden Richards injury? hoooiee also true, they wen bus us up la dat.

  210. g-nalo June 3, 2008 2:04 pm

    LTUHF – back in the late 60’s or early ’70’s there was a really good RB from Farrington? i think he had a samoan name but don’t think it was Tanuvasa? believe Tanuvasa came later on or AM i thinking of him?

    for some reason i also remember this tough LB named Arthur Trout, does it ring a bell?

  214. LizKauai [Believer] June 3, 2008 2:07 pm

    Great bio d1, sedate, witty and classy the anti-las vegas.

    I remember Uncle Gil buying me boiled peanuts at the termite palace around 1974 or so, I tried to throw it away as I thought it was spoiled.
    first time I had it.
    Once a month mom would drag me to the Civic arena to see Ripper Collins, Sammy (Mokuahi) Steamboat and Curtis the Bull bleed all over the ring.
    Boiled peanut lady was outside there too.

    Will it light up like Fester?

  223. homey ® June 3, 2008 2:18 pm

    I always wonder when people say stuff like “Feels like someone is squeezing my head” or “Feels like someone stabbed me in the stomach” did they actually have someone squeeze their head or got stabbed on the stomach?

  224. koakane™ June 3, 2008 2:19 pm

    g-nalo yep govs had a running back named Tanuvasa think his fname was Onosai like Joe from Pac5 and UH.

    I believe Arthur Trout played in 1974-75 and I think he played for Kailua if I am not mistaken. A little fuzzy about the details. Onosai played for Farrington at the same time Bubba Kreutz (Mr. Inside) Joe Story (Mr. Outside) played for Kalani, the only year that they had even a semi-decent Football Team. Anybody remember Rodney Loo basketball player for Kalani 1974-76

    Here is a beer quote for you…

    Sometimes when I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. I think, “It is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.”

    AWH , just chime in with whatever… like Joe Onosai lived in Kalihi and I was hoping he would go to FHS but instead he went to Pac-Five…

  265. Long Time UH Fan June 3, 2008 3:11 pm


    Onosai went to UH Lab School and played for Pac-Five…

    Does anyone remember how a Popolo RB from Radford named Himmer Henry came on the scene and brought RHS to prominence in Coach Velasco’s 1st year. in a huge Championship game between OIA/ILH. Guess who won that one and shocked people??

    Radford also had a kid named Jackie Disher, and another named Lefty Salomon that set a few receiving records for RHS that 1st year. These are guys I played sandlot tackle with, no equipment on Sundays in our backyard. Bob Apisa, Deroy & Leroy Lavatai were also part of our crew. There were some competitive pickup games in baseball with this same group, and we also played American Legion baseball on opposing teams in more organized travel leagues.

  268. g-nalo June 3, 2008 3:26 pm

    I believe Arthur Trout played in 1974-75 and I think he played for Kailua if I am not mistaken. A little fuzzy about the details. Onosai played for Farrington at the same time Bubba Kreutz (Mr. Inside) Joe Story (Mr. Outside) played for Kalani, the only year that they had even a semi-decent Football Team. Anybody remember Rodney Loo basketball player for Kalani 1974-76

    Trout was Farrington, the most notable Kailua name was Russ Francis.

    “cool hand ” Loo?

    Did you know that Handsome Johnny Barend is still married to the local gal. He had that wedding ceremony in the ring at the Old Civic. He lives in upper state New York.

  273. LizKauai [Believer] June 3, 2008 3:29 pm

    AWH- no worries. I attended my first live college FB game less than 1 year ago. Termite Palace is just a picture in my memory.
    Just talk about what you want to talk about.

    When was the Ward Warehouse Cattle Call? Even though I usually cannot make them, I know about them. Isn’t there an all-you-can-eat buffet for $10 or $12 there? Is that the one?

    OFF SPORTS TOPIC: Does anyone here have a 3/4″ video tapedeck in working condition who would be able to lend it to us for several weeks as we transfer obout 80 hrs of finished shows to DVD before the tapes completely dissolve. If you do, we would be willing to make a contribution to Koa Anuenue in your name for whatever UH sports program you wish.

    Sony Hawaii says that they’ll quote look at our tape deck unquote but there are no parts available to fix it.

    For the next several months, we’ll also be transfering about 100 hours of raw HI-8 footage as well about 80 hours of VHS to DVDs. After that’s completed, then we’ll transfer about 100 hours of classic rock audio cassette tapes to CDs.

    Hope those of you dealing with The Internet Cold are feeling better.Mine should be gone by tomorrow.

  275. koakane™ June 3, 2008 3:38 pm

    Helmets?…we didn’t need any stinkin’ helmets! Nah, even up at KS heights, in intramurals…some of the helmets had no face bars, and there you were in full pads with no football shoes. Right Pride? DPK?

    BG – I checked my email box, no letter from the Old Soldeir’s home, so I’m free for another month. Why did you hear from them?

    Ho, da mammaries…(wonder if this will make it past the censors?)

    al, we gotta talk story about the old days at the Taniguchi Store!

    LTUHF, my grandparents, Mom, her bro. & sis, lived on Hall Street. I remember the old man coming down the lane selling manapua. And I have this memory of a saimin stand that was just a long plank counter with benches on the street side. My Mom graduated from Farrington!

    Glad to see that Tyler is pulling it together academically to remain eligible. It’s going to be a grand summer to hear about how all of the players are doing. I haven’t seen many of our players on campus yet, but summer school just started this week. UH guys are motivated!

    thanks for the insight from everyone. how about these cattle calls. are they open to anyone or are they BIO??

  286. Long Time UH Fan June 3, 2008 4:02 pm

    Mei Ling,

    I used to live by Mun Lun School but my cousins lived on Hall Street. Back in those days there used to be a lot of “gangs”..Like Buckle Lane Gang, Palama Gang, etc. and where Mayor Wright Housing is now used to be a vacant lot full of mango trees. I remember a saimin stand there on Hall Street that served ono kine saimin 🙂

    Manapua man used to call out “Manapua” and it was only a nickel back then. But no more nickel… Wow…am I old or what…
    What year did your mom grad from FHS? If in mid 50’s I might know her…

  288. Stretch June 3, 2008 4:05 pm

    Prayers for the Wilton family!!

  289. homey ® June 3, 2008 4:05 pm

  290. Stretch June 3, 2008 4:07 pm

  291. koakane™ June 3, 2008 4:07 pm

  294. al June 3, 2008 4:12 pm

    let’s get this straight once and for all!!!

    a cattle call is open to the public and are announced on the blog.

    a mini call happens when someone invites a friend or two for lunch and it may just so happen that he/she is a tsaiko or not.

    one does not make a public invitation to every event that a person has just because they are tsaiko’s.

    ….nuff said!

  295. AWH June 3, 2008 4:15 pm

    al- sheesh, no need get your panties in a bunch, I was just asking a question.

  296. al June 3, 2008 4:15 pm

    my heartfelt condolences to the wilton family in their hour of grief.

  297. al June 3, 2008 4:17 pm

    while we were discussing onosai tanuvasa as one of the great fullbacks at farrington hs. he also played at the university of hawaii. he founded the moanalua pop warner program in the 80’s and later coached at pearl city hs. sadly, onosai passed away at the age of 52 some four years ago.

  298. Stretch June 3, 2008 4:17 pm

    al – thanks for clarifying

  299. Stretch June 3, 2008 4:19 pm

    how come the posts from BG & koakane are shown at 421 & 422 pm when they were posted about 400pm?? Now, all the current posts are being placed at the more correct time in front of them?? Something not right with the blog.

  300. las vegas June 3, 2008 4:19 pm

    You still wear panties?
    And all bunched up too?
    Almost time fo’ depends.

    aloha to wilton ohana

  302. al June 3, 2008 4:20 pm

    awh…..i am just clarify some things that others seem to be crying about. not necessarily directed at you, after all you are a newcomer.

    for the record though….

    the cattle call at ward warehouse sometime last year was announced on the blog and some 15 people showed up. yes, at this event at buffet 100, everytime dpk went up to get more food, which happened like 5-6 times. someone at the table borrowed some of his food. it was hilarious no doubt.

    but all done in fun. besides we may have saved him from gaining an additional 5-6 pounds.

  303. BG June 3, 2008 4:21 pm


    Condolences from the heart to Coach Wilton and his family on the tragic passing of his mom.

  304. las vegas June 3, 2008 4:21 pm

    my deepest condolences to the Wilton family.

  305. koakane™ June 3, 2008 4:22 pm

    my condolences to the Wilton family for their loss.

  306. Bulla June 3, 2008 4:22 pm

    thanks for the clarification…now i know why i do what i do, oh great and wise one….

    i do remember some nimble chopsticks removing succulent morsels of decadence from DPK’s overloaded plate. what a sacrifice to make, to partake in that person’s selected items in an ongoing effort to help him live longer……first that, now Obama gets confirmation…..what a day :):)

    the most hilarious thing about it is that I don’t think DPK knew about people taking his food until RIGHT NOW!!!

  308. al June 3, 2008 4:23 pm

    oh, and dpk had no idea.

  309. al June 3, 2008 4:26 pm

    and i owe him at least two salt n pepper shrimp and one piece roast duck.

    so, what is your tally?

  310. MeiLing June 3, 2008 4:26 pm

    So sorry to hear about coach Wilton’s Mom. Our aloha goes out to him & his ‘ohana.

    LTUHF, my Mom graduated ’51. Her sister graduated from McKinley in the mid-fifties, I think, & SteveM might know who she is. I remember running out to the street to buy manapua, & hearing him call out as he came by. I also remember waking up to roosters crowing somewhere in the neighborhood. I went to Mun Lun school just for a couple of summers.

    koakane, I have this picture in my mind’s eye of the saimin stand. Being a little kid, sitting on the stool or bench & watching the people cook. Yup, ono saimin! I have a few pictures of Hall Street.

  311. Kekoa June 3, 2008 4:26 pm

    BG – Rajah!…wilco…out here.

    For the rest of you civilians, that there’s miltary industrial complex talk meaning can do easy, but must meet compliance measures for that particular project, and there’s nothing more to add.

  317. al June 3, 2008 4:28 pm

    did you live next to lena machado?
    above ebisuya caterers?
    or next to the torikawa’s?

  318. AWH not June 3, 2008 4:29 pm

    everyone should only discuss things that everyone can comment on, it’s like you have your own private group in this public arena, not welcoming at all.

  319. Bulla June 3, 2008 4:31 pm


    watch out for the lightning…….

  320. al June 3, 2008 4:32 pm

    stretch….for an old guy you sure have a great memory.

    bulla, no lie, you had more than that and you started it.

    i wonder if he will be like us and make sure to eat all his food one plate at a time.

  321. Bulla June 3, 2008 4:32 pm


    it’s knot what you think sometimes, but watt knot to think that intrigues others around you

  322. AWH June 3, 2008 4:32 pm

    am I not welcome here so someone uses my name with a “not”??

  323. las vegas June 3, 2008 4:32 pm

    Geeze AWH not,
    Stop whining and bring something to the blog, if it’s interesting, someone will comment

  324. Kekoa June 3, 2008 4:33 pm

    Coach Wilton, my deepest condolences for the loss of your dear mother. My mom is still fresh in my memory as she passed just a little over one year ago at age 81. I feel your pain. May God bless.

  325. Bulla June 3, 2008 4:34 pm

    Al, oh wise and misguided one,

    let us not distribute the blame entirely upon my ever so capable shoulders…i agree that i am guilty as charged, but there were others. ask not what they will do for me, but instead how fast can they run?

    either way, truth be told, it was because of that hat that we borrowed his delectable items….

  326. AWH yes June 3, 2008 4:35 pm

    is that better? kum bah ya…..kum bah ya…….what a wonderful world…..

  327. Long Time UH Fan June 3, 2008 4:35 pm

    Mei Ling,

    Sorry, your mom grad FHS when I was still at Central trying to fight off the guys trying to hi-jack my lunch money… 😉 But I know quite a few McKinley High School ’55 grads..

    Do remember the bath house on Hall Street or Tominaga Grocery Store or the pool hall right around the bend on Kukui and Hall Street; that’s where my cousins lived. Would be nice to see those old Hall Street pix…

    We used to go watch the games at Palama Settlement barefoot league; those were some tough guys…

    Unfortunately I didn’t attend Mun Lun School as we had a paper route at that time. No time to learn Chinese; too bad as I wish I had taken some Cantonese when I visited Hong Kong…

  328. Bulla June 3, 2008 4:37 pm


    how hot is vegas right now…starting to heat up in honolulu, much to the enjoyment of HECO…..bloodsuckers if you ask me…..ouch.

  329. al June 3, 2008 4:37 pm

    awh….no problem leave your email here and we’ll keep you in the loop.

    for example, there is a huge welcoming party for rich2176 and ronnie our cali tsaikos. it started as a mere cattle call. but, rich likes to sing and wanted a cattle/karaoke call. since he golfs during the day the event switched over in to the hands of the karaoke master caller, stevem.

    rest assured it has been well publicized here daily.

  330. Bulla June 3, 2008 4:38 pm


    either you or homey wee looking for the chopsticks with the ‘extensions’, what started out as innocent 10″ chopsticks, have extensions up to 24″, now that is planning….big time…..envy you guys who got the small one that turns into the big one with the flic of a switch….lucky !!!

  332. Mrs. A-House June 3, 2008 4:41 pm

    What a nice way to start lurking today…by reading D1Shima’s from-the-heart bio. I did as I was told, started with “HI D1 !” and actually found myself saying “awwww” so often, without additional prompting. Thanks for sharing your life’s story, D-1. You are indeed blessed to have a lovely wife and two splendid sons, both of whom are winners at what they have thus far accomplished. Good luck to both as they continue to live their dreams.

    Really looking forward to bios from Midori&, UHFan808, Stretch and all the rest who are patiently waiting to be “invited” to share their story.

    Koakane, LizK, LTUHF, Wreck, for the kind words about me and the A-House Ohana…Mahalo, you made my day!

    Wreck – not only do I mow the lawn, but I clean garage roofs and clean out rain gutters, too… just for fun. Thanks for praising me. You make my chores seem fun and rewarding.

    A-Sports – you and A-Joe are rascals! Made me blush as I fingered the “crystal skulls” you created. BTW, if you are marketing them, may I reserve the light-colored “skull”. Can’t wait to wear it proudly on a chain around my neck…for good luck!

    ST – Keep those awesome photos coming! Don’t apologize for subjects being off center. You’re doing a great job and trust me, soon your photography skills will catch up with your splendid writing skills.

    To the Wilton Family – Deepest condolences from the A-House Ohana.

  333. AWHs' Cousin June 3, 2008 4:42 pm

    We are all family. Back in the day I used to catch rabits and eat them while building the first blimp ever to leave the great state of New York. I used a big wrench that I made in a factory all by myself and would grease it with the pork fat from the time I went to Samoa to teach them how to roast a pig Hawaiian style. Got there by riding the Hokuli’a when it was only a single hual canoe in which we would race the the natives in Africa… …. …. What was I talking about?

    look at AWH’s family coming out, what a nice group. i thought the Brady bunch was perfect, was i wrong?

    greg never recovered from his intimate relationship with the mom off the screen, dad went to the other side, pam henderson did her own damage, marsha went off the deep end….and that was a family show?

    Rap blew those guyz away, man that was one funny guy….unleashed he was unstoppable.

    OK, new subject. One huge cheer for the Victorino and Suzuki. Can they hit and Victorino on a 14 game streak. Those Maui guys are doing ok in the majors.

  356. wafan June 3, 2008 5:07 pm

    g-nalo . . .

    I believe you are correct. I recall a conversation where Mrs. A-House mentioned that it was Mr. A-House who impressed her when he showed her his . . . um, you know . . . heh.

    My deepest sympathies to the Wilton family.

  362. Long Time UH Fan June 3, 2008 5:14 pm

    Tombo Ahi,

    Mahalo for the link to the Chad Owens Show. Reminds me of the years he hooked up with Timmy Chang, and all those punt returns to the house! Good stuff!

  363. wafan June 3, 2008 5:14 pm

    Interesting movement of posts every so often. Booo, to the techies.

    The blog clock seems to be closer to being on time. Yahoo! Thank you to the techies.

  364. wafan June 3, 2008 5:18 pm

    Dang. All the earlier conversation about the old ILH, the Termite Palace, and food places really took me back. And, yes, those dry-boiled peanuts at the old stadium were the best.

  365. Kama Krab June 3, 2008 5:18 pm

    Howzit everybody,

    Get one short time to post something short.

    My condolences to Coach Wilton and his family. May the grace of god by with you and your family.

    Pomai, I was able to view the bios earlier, but just got an error when I tried again. (and since I can’t say this without being part of the Me generation… I’ll just say that I didn’t see my bio)

    AWH – you can see when the CC (cattle call) and K-Calls are scheduled (and other great Tsaiko Info) at

  371. Kekoa June 3, 2008 5:33 pm

    Kama – Missed you at the WBC call. See you at the next one. Eh what about coming to watch the QB’s pressure each other next week. Can or what?

  372. Da Punchbowl Kid June 3, 2008 5:33 pm

    My lawyers will be contacting all of you who confessed to pilfering food from my plate at Buffet 100. Nuff said.

  373. MeiLing June 3, 2008 5:35 pm

    I know who Lena Machado is, but where did she live? I lived about a block away from Ebisu Catering on S. King St., where Alan Wong’s restaurant is now. Taniguchi Store was right next to us. My Mom’s family lived on Hall St.

    I remember buying moi, too, at Mun Lun school. My Goong-Goong (JaM knows who he was) used to do tai chi in the evening there when an old sifu was visiting from China. The teacher would be up on the classroom porch & the adults would follow him doing tai chi in the yard. I used to run around eat moi, try to follow the movements & play, play, play.

    We are old futs, but we had good times in our hanabutta days.

    My son doesn’t believe me, but I saw Elvis at the Civic Auditorium when he was NOT fat! I also remember going to see wrestling there with my Dad. Boy, we should all write our memories down for our keeds.

    We’re Making More Memories!

    wafan – Was worth the wait for D-1shima’s unabashed revelations huh? I suddenly felt like I was on the set of “One Life To Live.” I still wish he didn’t hold back about those college days.

    Hey, I don’t roll out of the Wessie without the Warrior Express in the front of the pack, and D-1 at the wheel.

  377. Ronnie June 3, 2008 5:40 pm

    d1shima – great bio!

    Can’t wait for midori7’s bio tomorrow!

    Happy belated birthday, Faith.

    Go Chad!!! I’m so glad I got to watch the game last night.

    9 days and counting!!!

  378. Da Punchbowl Kid June 3, 2008 5:42 pm

    No scared, jump in any time. Just because the old geezers on here got sensitive because their age was showin, no worries, thats how old folks are. Please continue to post and ask questions when you need. We need more young ‘uns in here. Just do what the other young’ uns do and smile for the oldsters and wait til the subject changes or until their medication kicks in. Welcome aboard, sorry for the rookie hazing. 😉

  379. Ronnie June 3, 2008 5:43 pm

    Is anyone going to watch practice on the 13th, 16th, or 20th?

  386. Kekoa June 3, 2008 5:52 pm

    Howzit Ronnie!
    Me and Koakane were trying to figgah which one of the Manapua places you were going to take up residence at on your first 10 minutes on the ground.

    I say you’ll prolly head over to Waimalu because of the great selections. I mean aside from you traditional Char Siu, where else can you get Roast Duck inside Manapua, or Hot Dog Manapua? Teri-flavored meatballs are the rage now, but Kau Yuk is good stuff too. Mmmm…Mmmm…Mmm!

  388. Long Time UH Fan June 3, 2008 5:59 pm

    Arizona State won the NCAA women’s softball championship by beating Texas A& M 11-0. So our UH women’s SB team did well to play them in the regionals.

  389. wafan June 3, 2008 6:04 pm

    Kekoa . . .

    D1’s bio was well written and really evoked some warm and fuzzy memories of a loooooong (for some of the older Tsai-ko’s that would be a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooong) time ago. HA!

    I do remember Howard, the peanut lady, the Boliva clock, the entrance by the Grambling Band from under the makai stands (that was some gut shaking sounds from that fabulous drum-line, and the band — oh my), the Shrine Game, Turkey Day Games, Islander Baseball, going to Farrington and St. Louis games with my older cousins, the Farrington band when they played Kansas City and Cheerio, the makai “parking lot” that had more pot-holes than pavement, and . . .

  390. Long Time UH Fan June 3, 2008 6:11 pm


    Cheerio.. FHS td song?

  391. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 6:13 pm

    I’m glad the stuff I wrote stirred up so much conversation today; albeit to the chagrin of some.
    I thought that it was very interesting to learn more about some other Tsaikos through the experiences you shared today.

  392. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 6:16 pm

    Just a thought for anyone jumping in today and don’t know what to say to “feel included” – see 387., 375., 366., 365…..

  393. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 6:18 pm

    also remember as part of the Wilton Ohana, was it Aaron, who played for his Dad? Aloha to him, too as he just lost his Grandma.

  394. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 6:21 pm

    wafan / LTUHF,

    Is that the name of the song? Remember hearing it a few years back at a Govs game I was attending. Brought back memories.

    Who can name da coach of the ’65 team dat beat Kam(ehameha), 16-6 fo’ da ILH title?

    Bonus question:
    Name da field that they practiced on.

  395. Long Time UH Fan June 3, 2008 6:22 pm

  399. wafan June 3, 2008 6:31 pm

    LTUF and d1 . . .

    I used to go to the performances by the Governor bands. Without fail they would end the perfomance with Cheerio. It was an easy way for a standing ovation. HA!

    They would start the piece as it was intended and on the last section they would play it like they were at the stadium. That auditorium rocked with the sound of a full-band in their maroon and white uniforms proudly playing for the last time (for the seniors) Cheerio! What a way to end your high school music career.

    Still bring chicken-skin even as I type this.

  400. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc June 3, 2008 6:33 pm

    We are not alone.

    Ronnie: I still cannot get into the Biography section – whether clicking on the link in Pomai’s # 313 post or entering the URL or clicking on the listing in my Favorites button. I can get to the front page of the site, but anything requiring registration is blocked.

    Then when trying to re-register, the message was “user name taken.”

    Any thoughts out there from blog Tekkietypes as to how to get into the password-protected areas of the tsaikodotcom website?

    It was not intended to set off a battle when I asked about the Ward Warehouse CattleCall. Probably would have attended because the price asked is so far from what other buffets around town are getting.

    The word BIO seems to have three meanings on this site – it’s only by knowing the context that one can intepret the content.

    The news about the Wilton family’s loss is so sad; however, she certainly sounded as if she’d led a fulfilling life.

    STEPHEN: Love the pix – when will the next workout be?

    Off to pick up DrDoc and then on to another meeting. Have a good evening everyone. Those of you suffering from The Internet Cold, it will pass.

  401. Long Time UH Fan June 3, 2008 6:35 pm

    They got the handsomest, huskiest boys on the Farrington team

    Stretch – so will I see you at the dinner? Are you already on the email list? If not, send me email (jmor at hawaii dot edu) and I’ll forward you the invite. So when you when grad?

  405. A-House June 3, 2008 6:46 pm

    OK, ST & Barry:

    who is the O-line “walkon” to UH who gave up a full ride to Portland State??

  406. wafan June 3, 2008 6:50 pm

    LTUF and d1 . . .

    Click on my name for a link. Run up the sound. Then click on “Listen — Sample 1”. Just a short clip of that cool Cheerio! Unless you played in the band then you might never have heard the introduction.

  407. Stephen Tsai June 3, 2008 7:00 pm

    I’ll tell you when I stop by your house tonight, to pick up Midori’s bio.

  408. A-House June 3, 2008 7:03 pm


    coach was the Skippa and practices were at Bishop Museum.

  409. wafan June 3, 2008 7:04 pm

    Full version of Cheerio.

    Sing along! Where is Esme with the words?

  410. midori7 June 3, 2008 7:05 pm


    are you really stopping by the house? I was going to email to you tonight. It’s almost done.

  411. Loa June 3, 2008 7:25 pm

    my condolences to the Wilton ohana

    sorry cannot stay, everyone have a safe evening, cu tomorrow.

  412. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 7:28 pm


    I think at the time Skippa may have still been in Corvallis(?) and although it was all Bishop Estate land at one time, the practice site actually has a name.

  413. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 7:31 pm

    If not for pausing for dinnah, I might have found that first. But good job.
    Mrs. d1shima claims to know the words. Stay tuned.

  414. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 7:36 pm

    Sorry, actually I think the Museum isn’t part of B.P.Bishop’s estate, right?
    Isn’t it the husband’s? Kekoa? dpk?

  415. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 7:38 pm


    I was going to email to you tonight. It’s almost done.

    Remember not to let Mrs. A-house peek; it’s going to ruin the surprise! 😉

  416. koakane™ June 3, 2008 7:40 pm

    d1 coach was Tom Kiyosaki and Kam field or park by the freeway

  417. midori7 June 3, 2008 7:43 pm


    ok, pau.

    porch light is on.

  418. koakane™ June 3, 2008 7:52 pm

    if das the songs name chereo I can hear it still but I thought it was their fight song similar to mckinley’s black and gold, iolani’s iolani no ka oi, kamehameha’s imua kamehameha and
    roosevelt’s band playing theme venus.

    who remembers farrington twin song leaders? other farrington band spectacular was during half time da whole band played and performed to the tune of march of the wooden solders. all decked out in their marron band outfits. nicccccccccccccce

    please accept our deepest sympathies on your loss. Your mom did a good job, Mike! And you two have done a great job! For your family. For your State. Thank you.

    Yes, Kiyosaki.
    Kusonoki Field, but not sure wea dey practice right b4 the Turkey Day game cause they stayed at Coco Palms that night

  423. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 8:01 pm

    Speaking of Kusunoki Field. I remember wen the lights got put in but I don’t ever recall seeing them turned on???

  424. bighilofan2 June 3, 2008 8:01 pm


    WoFat would not have approved of your bio. 😛 😆

  425. koakane™ June 3, 2008 8:04 pm

    yep wafan das it. only part I really remember being played is the section where da boy and girl hold up sign to either whistle or sing.

    whoa can hear the stadium erupting with all da govs standing and pounding the bleachers

  426. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 8:04 pm

    Maybe you and A-house are right about them practicing there b4 that game.

  427. Pomai June 3, 2008 8:06 pm

    Ronnie wot’s a matter you, stay right whea should be in wit da “R’s” I was actually waiting for you to say something about the picture.

    Tom Kiyosaki? His wife was my honors english teacher at Roosevelt. His daugher was my sister’s classmate. They all lived in Manoa several blocks from our home.

  430. koakane™ June 3, 2008 8:19 pm

    as a tribute to d1 and all gov’s (sorry warriors) click on above website and read about 65 turkey day game done by jim becker. the writers were very dramatic back then.


  431. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 8:19 pm

    One of my “fond” memories of Honolulu Stadium.
    Before I “transferred” to FHS, my other school used to clean the stadium for fundraising.
    Picking up trash under the bleachers was *the worst* after Farrington games! Knee-deep the whole side!

    Anybody ever got “bombed” by one soda under those bleachers?

    Oh, one other thing I remember.
    The scramble fo’ seats in the UH student section with people lying down for save seats for their friends. Funny…

  432. gigi-hawaii © June 3, 2008 8:22 pm

    I attended just one game at the palace. Roosevelt played but I don’t remember our opponent. Can’t even remember who won!

    Geez, guys, you all have such incredible memories!

  433. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 8:26 pm

    We no have to remember back 82 years das’ why

  435. stacyj June 3, 2008 8:28 pm

    Is esme a gov too?

    The words are…

    We’re gonna cheer for our Farrington team.
    We’re gonna cheer for our Farrington team.
    The boys we yell about, tell about, feel so darn swell about,
    Boys on our Farrington team.

    We’re gonna cheer for our Farrington team.
    We’re gonna cheer for our Farrington team.
    We’ve got the huskiest, handsomest, kickingest, passingest
    Boys on our Farrington team.

    I know, no really make sense but, that’s the words as we were taught it.

    Do you guys remember the end of game song? Pride and Victory? That one always brings chicken skin to me.

  436. gigi-hawaii © June 3, 2008 8:29 pm

    d1, you mean 81.

  437. Garret June 3, 2008 8:30 pm

    Good news about RGM! I’m very happy that he’s healthy enough to practice with the Texans. Hopefully he gets through the next 5 practices and then he’ll have a long time to rest and recover fully.

    As for an injury update, Ryan Grice-Mullen was back practicing with the team today, as was Darius Walker and Chester Pitts.

    The team has five more OTA sessions left before they break until training camp.

  438. Garret June 3, 2008 8:30 pm

    8-year-old kid plays baseball, football (threw a lot of TD passes and scored on a play as a WR) and soccer…despite having just one leg!

  439. stacyj June 3, 2008 8:30 pm

    d1, I think someone mentioned that about FHS at Roosevelt stadium.

  440. gigi-hawaii © June 3, 2008 8:30 pm

    Don’t remember our Roosevelt alma mater. ST does. Heck, even when I was a student, I didn’t know the words.

    gigi, I’ve learned one thing about men, they can remember sporting events down to a single play but can’t remember where they put their keys, wallet, cell phone, etc. an hour ago.

  443. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 8:34 pm

    I’m figuring you were still 17 during football season

  444. gigi-hawaii © June 3, 2008 8:34 pm

    stacy, does your hubby forget people’s names? Mine does. Instead of names, he says the guy did this or that, call the guy to do our stuff…

  445. gigi-hawaii © June 3, 2008 8:35 pm

    ok, d1. I was 17.

  446. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 8:36 pm


    …not to mention birthdays, anniversaries, and bar mitvahs

  447. stacyj June 3, 2008 8:36 pm

    gigi, with the size of his family, hubby even forgets his own cousins’ names. If he doesn’t introduce me, I know he can’t remember their name.

    But, ask him to recall a drunken night in college and braddah can tell me the whole story without leaving out many details.

  448. stacyj June 3, 2008 8:37 pm

    eh d1, how you knew I am Jewish?

  449. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 8:38 pm


    you should take a clue from Jerry Glanville to help your hubby; everytime you folks meet someone, issue that person a numbered jersey.

  450. SteveM June 3, 2008 8:38 pm

    stacyj — that’s not true of all men. I can remember where I put my keys, wallet, cell phone, etc. I just forget birthdays, anniversaries, first dates, relative’s names…. 🙂

  451. stacyj June 3, 2008 8:38 pm

    I can’t keep it straight but off the top of your heads, who grad FHS?

  452. gigi-hawaii © June 3, 2008 8:39 pm

    d1, good idea! Since he’s an accountant, he remembers numbers — even the price of something that was on sale a few months ago!

    Easy. Your Mom is Jewish.

    btw, I forgot we should have consulted an “alleged, possibly, could have been” a cheerleader for da words. 😉

  454. stacyj June 3, 2008 8:42 pm

    nah, my hubby doesn’t loose those items much but, it amazes me how when the boys get together, they can remember things like speeches the coaches gave during a specific game or where someone missed a hit during the 5th game of the 3rd year playing varsity football (and yadda, yadda, yadda) and yet, they don’t remember other things about life.

  455. gigi-hawaii © June 3, 2008 8:42 pm

    stacy, how about their inability to drive to the right destination when TALKING! grrrr. Hubby missed the stadium offramp because he was busy talking about nonsense to me.

    Just last Sunday, he forgot to turn left to the parking lot at HCC because — he was talking to me.

    It’s so bad, I now tell him to shaddup and drive.

  456. SteveM June 3, 2008 8:42 pm

  468. stacyj June 3, 2008 8:54 pm

    koakane, where you grad?

    Those HS games are where it all began for me. The memories are priceless.

  469. Garret June 3, 2008 8:55 pm


    As the National Football League continues to perfect a marketing strategy designed to command our attention 24/7/365, let’s not allow ourselves to confuse minicamp with the less formal (if not less formal-sounding) teaching sessions known as OTA’s, or organized team activities. Each club is allowed 14 OTA’s in addition to its minicamp

  470. stacyj June 3, 2008 8:56 pm

  472. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 8:57 pm


    Was just guessing that you were actually Jewish after your comment 448. But if so, from what I understand, your Mom would almost certainly have to be also.

    d1, I meant to clarify what a 1st date means. It does not mean group dates.

    I went on group dates in 9th grade, and had my 1st real date (to Commencement Ball) in the 10th grade.

    GM will shift its marketing campaign to promote fuel economy and hybrids instead of its normal focus on trucks. Given gas prices and the focus on the environment, this makes sense to me.

    Coach Diaz was the coach when FHS won it’s next division title after the ILH one of ’65.

    Does anyone know what year that was (Skippa’s win)?

    I was already “in” before you.

    June 3rd, 2008 at 6:43 pm
    Stretch – so will I see you at the dinner? Are you already on the email list? If not, send me email (jmor at hawaii dot edu) and I’ll forward you the invite. So when you when grad?

    I will probably not be at the dinner in July. I get the emails from Mr Lee. I grad in the 90’s.

  508. stacyj June 3, 2008 9:46 pm

    gigi, re:501, not necessarily true. My husband was/is still a gentleman. I think a lot has to do with who you choose to date. And, I think women are changing things up in the dating world too.

    Hey, D1, awesome bio. But where’s all the music stuff? You left out lotta good parts, my brother.

    I gotta say that after I watched your YouTube clip, I spent too much time today researching “Ue o Muite Arukoo” and its original singer Kyu Sakamoto. What an amazing song! I only knew the lyrics from the American version, but the Japanese lyrics are incredible. It’s a Japanese “Sitting on the Dock of the Bay”.
    And the way Sakamoto died was also incredibly sad.

    D1- Kamehameha Schools’ original campus was located where the Bishop Museum currently resides.

    d1, you talking to private investigator “stacyj” I went to SteveM’s site to see if I recognized Stretch. Then went to the UH lab alumni website and looked at c/o ’92. Saw a current small reunion picture then looked at the class names. Kinda guessed after eliminating those I recognize.

    Oh did I leave out that I know a gang of labbers that grad my year and year after.

  550. Kekoa June 3, 2008 10:35 pm

    Gigi ~ Koakane was explaining how it was after a HS fb game. It was traditional for your gf to bring you a quart of juice to drink. Mebbe a lei if it was a special win or game like Turkey day. The juice delivery girl was the *man code* he so eloquently speaks of…right Pahtna?

  551. d1shima [sez:] June 3, 2008 10:35 pm

    Still feet tired from the heat. Good night everyone!

  567. stacyj June 3, 2008 10:55 pm

    Koakane, no worries…none taken, really.

    Stretch, as small kids but not as adults. I can’t remember if you were ever part of the rugrats that ran around Dole when there was no school. If you did, remember Augie T and his brother Arnold? We used to have a blast on that campus. I remember going to your house for something. Can’t remember what the occasion was. And your mom always had pics of you and your sister in her office.

  570. Kekoa June 3, 2008 11:02 pm

    Good Job DPK – To add more information to the discussion, the present day area to the right of the main structure was where the old wooden buildings used to be. Part of it is now a parking lot on the lower side entrance. That was also where the boarding students resided, and a small infirmary during the time the main campus was on the grounds. The front lawn provided an area for after school tackle football games between FHS & KS prep schoolers. Mutual respect for the game and each other kept things clean, no fights.

    Charles Bishop did own the complex, as he did own the hall, and chapel as well as the Museum. He of course was key in putting her Estate in order immediately after her death. She was actually cash poor and land rich, so he funded the entire complex as one of the appointed 5 trustees of her estate.

    We are not alone.

    One of the unique things about Hawai`i is how important to everyone where folks went to high school. How do home-schooled kids handle that?

    Garret: Belated Happy B’Day to Faith. How old is she now?

    Rich: Celebrate twice for all of us here – and how young are you today?
    FYI: Got in touch with my former agent to see if there might be some chance to get back in DaBiz. Haven’t heard back yet.

    God night everyone – perhaps we’ll see some of you at practice tomorrow – assuming that I’m no longer boogery.

    Howard Egami is one of the great fellows of Honolulu Stadium. Worked hard as a stadium vendor, and most of all one of the most kind and generous souls I ever met.

    Regardless of what people thought of him, I always knew he was there to serve all his customers and made sure all enjoyed their experience at Honolulu Stadium.

    A few years ago, I saw Howard outside Murakami Stadium. Stopped by and said hello. He said “Eh Moanalua!” Kinda shocked, but Howard remembered that I played baseball for Moanalua in the PAL league and he coached for the Alii’s. After a few minutes, he pulled a ticket out of his pocket and gave it to me. As I reached into my pocket to pay him, he grabbed my hand and said, “No need this is from me, thank you for remembering me.” “Enjoy, enjoy!”

    Howard, mahalo! The world should be filled with more Howard Egamis.

  575. bighilofan2 June 4, 2008 12:22 am


    Amen to the Howard Egamis ah da world.

    Wuz your day! Good job on da net!

    How’s Timmy Chang doing?

    2005-signed with Arizona as undrafted free agent/released
    signed with Detroit as free agent/released

    2006-signed with Philadelphia as free agent/released
    allocated by Philadelphia to NFL Europe/Rein Fire
    completed 50 of 89 pass attempts for 659 yards, four touchdowns and
    three interceptions

    2007-signed with Hamilton Tigercats of the CFL
    Started two of 18 games played…completed 42 of 89 pass attempts
    for 467 yards, seven interceptions and one touchdown


    Press Release:
    The Ticats added a fifth quarterback Tuesday by signing former Florida Gators passer Chris Leak. The addition of Leaks makes the QB situation interesting to follow. He will compete with Quinton Porter and Timmy Chang for the third spot behind last year’s one and two, Casey Printers and Richie Williams.

    The Tigercats preseason games start 6/12 and 6/19 and the regular season starts on 6/26

    Outlook-For the 27 year old Timmy Chang it might be a poignant moment to realize that his storied football career dating back to his days at both UH and St. Louis High might soon be coming to an end. With the management bringing in two QB’s, Porter and now Leak, the future for Chang doesn’t look too good of him making the team. In fact it be surprising if he did, although here wishing he does have a good training camp and things go right for him.

    howzit. suggestions for the blog. I googled honolulu advertiser, got to the main page, was looking for the dog lady leslie kawamoto, couldn’t find her, blog, so i googled her name and came up with her other old stuff but still no dog blog, so I googled Warrior Beat within the HA search space and got to the old Warrior Beat, which gave me the link to this current spot. Sure is a slow way of getting here, and as your blog starts banging 1000 hits things are really gonna get slow.

    so my two requests is for leslieK to come over here once a day and say something about us animals and attach her link address here everyday for a couple of weeks – so we can remember her tag and go harass her animals as we walk thru the Tsaiko world almost daily if not more often.

    and my second request is for the HA bigshots to fix the blog stuff samoa so we can get to this spot faster. should be automatic that warrior beat gets us to this space, instead of an extra (slow) trip to get here.

    btw, I buy the HA everyday, faithfully, 7/365 to support da team. Been doin it since I started hanging out here some months ago.

    Hey Warriors,

    20 years ago I had the opportunity to spend almost 2 weeks dormin at Hofstra U in August. The Jets were in training camp, on campus. I got to watch the team practice everyday. Up close. I saw Tall. Big. Muscles. Fast. Quick. I marveled at how many really good lookin athletes could be assembled in one place at one time. I’ll never forget the confident expressions on their faces.

    I’m feelin that way about you. Represent. Step it up samoa, gangee!
    87 days.


  582. bighilofan2 June 4, 2008 1:58 am

    I hope the current SMU Athletic Director Steve Orsini gets the Notre Dame job because it leaves the door open for some interesting possibilities in the future. Suppose Jones and his SMU team soars next year. and the year after. And Weiss ND team fizzles again this year and the next. Would Orsini again go after Jones again? First I hope Orsini gets the job, so at least the door is open for a fairy tale ending for Jones if this were to happen. Dreaming on my part? Maybe. But I can’t help salivating over the thought of having an offense with 4 and 5 star athletes and 5 of them going out for passes. It would be fun to watch. And it will be interesting to see how everything plays out for Orsini.

    Been gone for awhile, battling viruses on my wifes computer and defending mine against grandsons etc. and resulting over crowding.

    Your bio is much the way I expected and the way I’ve got to know you a little bit. Straight forward, no-nonsense with a humorous twinkle in your eye. You are a well adjusted human being of the kind we need plenty more of in this world.

    What amazes me the most about your bio is your 25 year honey moon, that still seems to be going strong.

  610. Stretch June 4, 2008 6:55 am

    koakane – I am not on Maui today, I wish I was. I have to work so on Kauai.

  621. Bulla June 4, 2008 7:33 am

    aloha to all the Tsaikos,

    have a productive day. let’s see what other families (AWH) will come and join us, maybe some of our ‘senior’ bloggers can offer some insight.

    is it hot, or is it just me? on june 1, it was like the thermometer went up on Oahu….at 530 am you can feel the heat. only people happy are HECO, with their escalating (homey, that means rising upward, and not at ala moana) prices.

    we need to look for alternative energy sources instead of our current dependency matrix. they say natural gas is cheaper, koakane…is that true and have you put a study together. i thought at one our recent CC’s, not a BIO, that someone was discussing natural gas as a viable alternative, but i argued that i thought flatulence was more of a personal energy source….

    more thoughts from others on this if you please. if that is the case, our house energy bill should be cut in 1/2 at least, i figure some of us should be able to sell the extra energy back to HECO, sort of like photovoltaic systems that are becoming popular.

    have a good day, i think i stirred the pot up pretty good.

  622. bighilofan2 June 4, 2008 7:34 am


    howzit. so give me yur cel. wen i get back frum Kona I call, come ovah. tinkin about 8ish pm if da event is Panaewa. da supahsecret is so secret even Doreen don’t know. but i’ll show up. gotta give me details.

    Have a Gtest Day everybody!

  623. Bulla June 4, 2008 7:37 am

    that cheer is beginning to rumble in the valleys of honolulu, it reminds me of a cacophony of shrill voices from a place called Studebakers… sounds like, wait, be quiet, you can hear it tooo….

    No surprise to anyone here but I was conceived in a YMCA building near UH campus . I use the name midori7 because that is my favorite drink when I go out and party all night. I go to baseball and basketball games so I have a few hours to sit and gossip with UHFan808 and check out clothes catalogs.
