Senior slotback Aaron Bain is the rare player who does not have a tattoo. He mused that as a walk-on, he couldn’t afford one. Bain, who is scheduled to receive a football scholarship next month, has worked this summer as a counselor at a youth detention center in Makiki.

Slotback Kealoha Pilares, who is on scholarship, has a lot of ink.


* * *

Leon Wright-Jackson, who went home to Seattle for a few days, is back and working out daily. Wright-Jackson and Daniel Libre enter training camp as the co-No. 1 running backs.


To help prepare for the season, Wright-Jackson bought a pair of Under Armour cleats. UA is UH’s sponsor this year. The players won’t receive their UA cleats until training camp.


Kealoha Pilares, however, said he feels comfortable with his Nike shoes.

Jake Heun is expected to serve as a powerback in short-yardage situations. Heun was a skilled linebacker in JC — the “dark side,” he calls the defense — but he appears set to play offense this season.

Ray Hisatake is competing for the left tackle’s job and the title of Biggest Hair.


Right wideout Royce Pollard also has impressive hair.

    tree. More coffee.

  4. 99club July 4, 2008 2:49 am

    It’s going to be interesting to see our rushing totals this year compared to previous years. I really like the stable of running backs we’ve got!

  5. HiFlyer July 4, 2008 2:52 am

    Looks like LWJ has UA shoes, I wonder if he bought them on his own?

  6. Stretch July 4, 2008 2:54 am

    ST – you should really be going to sleep before you burn your ala’s again. Have fun waking up early for the Parade.

  7. Ralph July 4, 2008 2:54 am

    99club last year was a down year in rushing but with Nate and the rest of the RB’s we had nearly 1000 yards and maybe more…add the pass reception Rb’s did well. last year the guys went down to easily, reminded me of Bass from a few years ago…

  8. Stretch July 4, 2008 2:55 am

    BTW – it is will also be a good opportunity on Sunday for the people interested in the evil twins to check them out. I heard they will be standing in line for a Colt autograph

  9. HiFlyer July 4, 2008 2:57 am

    Stephen, you must be psychic or is it tpsychic.

  10. Ralph July 4, 2008 2:57 am

    there is so much tape that it shouldn’t matter which shoes they are wearing..I don’t see a problem with rolling with UA because the tape locks every part of the shoe and foot in place making it one unit

  11. Ralph July 4, 2008 3:06 am

    Eh Stretch how come you and Wreck are calling them the evil twins…..

  12. Ralph July 4, 2008 3:08 am

    have the twins been standing near Koakane and James tonight…I hope the Pope doesn’t find out about their affiliation with Damien HS, he might rescind the canonization

  13. Ralph July 4, 2008 3:11 am

    listening to oldies makes the evening very relaxing, finished with Eagles, now its Fleetwood Mac.

  14. Pomai July 4, 2008 3:15 am

    Ralph wow I stay up already, en I did make my own coffee, da wife stay working for pay da bills LOL.

  15. 99club July 4, 2008 3:16 am

    I’m guessing they tape each other’s ankles…or are there trainers available to do it? Good thing either way.

    Evil twins? Heh, heh. They’re too small to be evil. Sweet too.

  16. 99club July 4, 2008 3:19 am

    St. Damien. I like the sound of it! Should happen in February I’m heard. Will Damien start playing the “…Saints come marching in..” song at their games next year? Why not?

  17. Stephen Tsai July 4, 2008 3:19 am

    They’re pretty much on their own.
    They tape their own ankles.
    Adam Leonard brings the water.

  18. Pomai July 4, 2008 3:21 am

    I wonder how many feet of tape they go through each year?

  19. Pomai July 4, 2008 3:26 am

    Dang ST your as bad as me, keep all kinds of funny hours.

  20. 99club July 4, 2008 3:27 am


    Good morning…sorry about your dog and the vet bills. Our “pound puppy” has cost us a few hundred in the last 6 months mainly from eating things outside that he shouldn’t have.

  21. 99club July 4, 2008 3:30 am

    Goin’ for a jog…back later (I hope!)

  22. Ralph July 4, 2008 3:30 am

    those tapes are expensive, okay for the ankles because its comfortable, but if you taping the socks and shoes, got to find a cheaper sub…to bad masking tape to sticky, it binds anything with good wrapping strength.

  23. Ralph July 4, 2008 3:30 am

    Pomai anyone mention that you look like lucky luck

  24. Ralph July 4, 2008 3:32 am

    99club are you on Oahu

  25. Ralph July 4, 2008 3:37 am

    ST need a group pix. Hisatake, Pollard and Mouton, poll best hair

  26. Pomai July 4, 2008 4:04 am

    Ralph I wish I wuz a funny as he, and no your da first. Now I gotta go goolge da buggah foah see wot he looks like.

  27. Pomai July 4, 2008 4:55 am

    I wasn’t living in Hawaii during the Lucky Luck years(50/60’s) but have seen him on the TV but was so long ago that I forgot what he looked like (Hawaii Five-O) so I goolged him, not much on him on the internet, an no photos. For a guy who was as popular as him you would think there would be more info on him.

  28. Pomai July 4, 2008 4:57 am

    Dang where’s that edit button? goolged = googled

  29. MeiLing July 4, 2008 5:03 am

    Aloha Kakahiaka! Happy 4th of July!

    Dedicated guys! Can’t wait to see them on the field. Someone needs to show Heun how to make a shaka instead of horns. He’s a big back.

    If Central Arkansas comes here to play in September 2009, it’s gonna feel like paradise to them here since it much more humid there.

  30. MeiLing July 4, 2008 5:05 am

    I don’t think Pomai looks like Lucky Luck. Good thing he doesn’t look like J. Akuhead Pupule…

  31. 99club July 4, 2008 5:07 am

    I’m in San Angelo, TX. West TX or West Central TX depending on who you talk to.

    Happy 4th of July to all of you patriotic Tsai-ko’s!!!

    Whoo-hoo. Another day closer to kick-off. Yeah!

    Looks like everyone is busy at work getting ready for the humongous bash coming up next week. Please have a great and safe time. Oh, and be sure to laugh for the rest of us who cannot be there.

    Kudos to Coach Mack for expanding UH’s camp from what was offered last year! That is a great thing for Hawaii’s youth and will be a HUGE boost to UH’s recruiting efforts in the short-term and long-term (since he’s having a camp for the younger players also). People here know I’ve been strongly in favor of more camps and I’m happy that Coach Mack is exceeding expectations and doing the right thing for the program once again!

    I know that the news was in the Advertiser yesterday, but I wanted to make sure I commented on this before I forgot.

  36. Garret July 4, 2008 5:37 am

    Happy 4th of July to everyone! I hope that everyone has a great time today.

  37. Garret July 4, 2008 5:38 am

    HF in the news! Funny thing is that he’s setting deadlines for himself now…wonder if he’ll actually make his internal deadlines?

    Herman Frazier, in the process of moving back to Phoenix, said he has a self-imposed deadline to decide on his next job within 30 days.

    The former Arizona State track star and longtime college and U.S. Olympic Committee administrator said he is talking with two “institutions of higher learning.” He is cautious in discussing whether he is among the candidates to become USA Track chief executive officer.

    “You hear rumors that they want to talk to me,” Frazier said. “You hear rumors that people say you should move into that position. That’s not always the case. Is it a good fit for them, and is it a good fit for me? That’s got to work on both sides.

    “At this point their search people are still working, and that’s pretty much all I can say about it. I’ve had some discussions with some people about it; that’s all I’ll say.”

    A search committee independent of the USA Track board of directors is looking for a new CEO to replace Craig Masback, who left in January for an executive position with Nike. The original goal to make a hire June 1 has come and gone.

    Frazier, 53, under pressure for several issues, including the departure of football coach June Jones, agreed to a contact buyout with the University of Hawaii, where he was athletic director for 5 1/2 years, in January. He interviewed for athletic director at the University of Miami soon after leaving Hawaii, a job that went to Kirby Hocutt of Ohio University.

    Frazier is buying a house in Ahwatukee.

    Navy is sure filling up its schedule spots quickly. They just scheduled another Texas team.

    The Navy football team will play Rice on Oct. 10, 2009 at Rice Stadium, the school confirmed today.

  39. Garret July 4, 2008 5:41 am

    This rumor I think has been denied already…

    Agent Bus Cook has been yapping a lot over the past several months regarding the future of his star client, Brett Favre.

    Most recently, we heard that Cook had been telling people that Brett still wants to play. (Two days later, it was widely reported that Brett is telling people that Brett still wants to play.)

    We’re now hearing that Cook is privately saying that Favre wants to play for the . . . . drum roll, please . . . oh, wait, it’s in the headline . . . Carolina Panthers.

    We don’t know why Favre is eyeing Carolina. Maybe he thinks that it’s the best place for him to step in as the starter, notwithstanding the presence of Jake Delhomme, and have a chance to win. Or maybe Favre wants to play for a time that’s fairly close to his home in Mississippi — and that will play three division road games in that same general area as well.

  41. Garret July 4, 2008 5:44 am

    I wonder if this Minnesota transfer will get to play vs. UH? It sounds like he has a lot of talent and will have the speed to be a dangerous DE.

    University of Cincinnati football coach Brian Kelly first met Alex Daniels in September, before the start of fall quarter.

    He knew Daniels had been dismissed from Minnesota’s football program a few months earlier. He also knew about his potential as a football player.

    After examining Daniels’ situation and talking with officials from Minnesota, UC athletic director Mike Thomas reached the same conclusion and on Thursday cleared Daniels to play at UC this fall.

    According to a July 18, 2007, Associated Press story, junior Dominic Jones was accused of having sex with an 18-year-old woman who was “physically helpless” after a night of binge drinking at a campus apartment in early April of that year.

    Investigators said Daniels used his cell phone to film Jones having sex with the woman. Hennepin County (Minn.) attorney Mike Freeman said that Daniels, and Minnesota players E.J. Jones and Keith Massey also had sex with the woman earlier that night.

    Thomas said reinstating Daniels was not an easy decision. During the past week and a half, in addition to meeting with Daniels, he consulted with officials from Minnesota.

    During two years at Minnesota, Daniels played in 23 games at linebacker and running back. In the Gophers’ 2006 season opener, he rushed for 155 yards and three touchdowns against Kent State.

    Kelly said the 6-foot-3, 255-pound Daniels, who was ranked the 11th-best athlete in the nation by after he led Brookhaven to a state title in 2004, probably will be tried at defensive end at UC.

    But first Daniels has to get healthy.

  42. Garret July 4, 2008 5:46 am

    Amazing that Kansas’ new facility has a meeting room that is just for scout team players.

    Scout-team players have their own meeting room.

    Oh, that’s not a main attraction of the 80,000-square-foot Anderson Family Football Complex on the southwest side of Kansas’ Memorial Stadium.

    That could be the massive weight room with custom-built work stations, a locker room large enough to land a small aircraft or coach Mark Mangino’s corner office overlooking the field that would be the envy of any corporate CEO.

    But the idea of giving practice players their own space speaks to perhaps the best part of the $31 million project.

  43. bighilofan2 July 4, 2008 5:50 am

    I give yu props fo being up front.

    like Barry at da airport, he wuz upfront too
    subtle, but wit a hammah fo rearrange
    da ambiance… heh heh heh

  44. NYUH July 4, 2008 5:51 am

    Heun looks awesome. Somebody give him some Travis Sims tapes. Needs to work on his shaka though.

  45. wafan July 4, 2008 5:55 am

    I have wondered in the past if Stevens’ life would have been different had he actually gone to the UH. F v Appen actually tried to get him. But when the high school coach checked the UH program and stats he said that Stevens already knew how to lose (our team was winless or close to it at that time) and that he needed to learn to win.

    Or, perhaps it was all for the better that he did not.

  46. bighilofan2 July 4, 2008 6:00 am


    yu noticed dat too, huh! Texas transplant.
    yuk yuk

    but it wudn’t teez him to his face, da bugga is solid.

    i love hot dogs, but not like them!

  50. wafan July 4, 2008 6:14 am

    We need a Tsai-ko or three to teach the newbies how to do a shaka. Those guys are getting confused about their fingers. Is Huen practicing for the Vili look-a-like contest?

    Has Mr. Tsai been relegated to shooting side, back and foot shots? The one with Bain looks like he is saying, “Take the photo at your own risk.”

    Finally, I should have asked Koakane for his autograph before. Now that he is in the background the price just went up. Geez. Have to buy ticket, or what?

    Stevens already knew how to lose (our team was winless or close to it at that time) and that he needed to learn to win

    Looks like da buggah been out proving wat he already knew and maybe nevah had the time fo’ learn wat he needed to learn.
    I’ll repeat wat I said earlier dis morning – da buggah is pilau! Stay away! 👿

  56. chawan_cut July 4, 2008 6:44 am

    this is the most filler ever for a “sports” event.

    its a 10 minute eating contest that they’ve “Stretch”d into an hour long show.

    talk about characters. each contestant has a nickname and a crazy get up to their look. face paint, hair, costumes.

    we’ll see if joey chesnut can hold off kobayashi one more year.

    oooh, a tie.
    an “eatoff!” fastest to eat 5.
    i don’t understand the rules. do you have to swallow? or just have it in your mouth? its over.
    they just named chesnut the champion. i think his style of eating is better for shoving as much in your mouth quickly without swallowing. kobayashi’s method is more for long term eating. i’m sure there’ll be tons of replay coverage on espn tonight..

  63. Stephen Tsai July 4, 2008 7:22 am

    Re-Coach Mack trip to Samoa

    Reading another site, and the catalyst of the discussion was that “last night Papa Leahey gives Coach Mack a yellow card”. The argument centered on Leahey chastising Coach Mack for going to Samoa and following and tagging along too closely with Coach Jones.

    To all the cynics out there, including Leahey, remember the trip was more so a good will mission. As ambassadors to college football, both schools, SMU and UH, had a few members of their coaching staffs along with a few current and former NFL UH alums traveling to Samoa to what…run a academy (football camp). And to pass out a few medical supplies. This was their objective, mainly to help with the kids. And to promote the game of football. With five college scholarships awarded it also planted the seeds in motivating the remaining kids to get better.

    The June Jones foundation along with Coach Mack and Coach Jones should be commended for their generosity for their time, teaching and underwriting the costs of the trip. The impressions they leave on the community and to this writer is that they truly in their hearts have a love for helping the football impoverished so maybe one day not only UH or SMU yields the successes of the Samoa players entering the collegiate ranks. But all of college football. And maybe the NFL, too. This is good. And not a bad working relationship between the two coaches.

    For people, especially people who’s commentary we listen too, like Leahey, look at the overall picture and rethink your statement. The impropriety as you see it, especially how you identify it as Coach Mack should be weening himself away from Coach Jones because their “fishing from the same pond” or recruiting the same area arguments are ridiculous statements. In view of the trip to Samoa and in view of all the good that comes out of it, I don’t think the actions of Coach Mack and his relationship with Coach Jones will handicap his ability to recruit against Coach Jones. The trade off, anyway, of all the goodwill, especially the charitable golf tournaments generating monies for the Hawaii community and the football camps in Samoa has a far reaching affect and impact…anyhow… than to cry about *if* Coach Mack might lose out to Coach Jones in the future recruiting wars.

    Man, I love those pictures of our guys. If they’ll play half as good as they look, we’re in for a wild ride. I have a strong feeling that our running game will shock a few people this year, return to running glory?

    I love and hate the unknown about our team at the same time, but it sure makes fall camp highly interesting.

    Every body have a happy and safe 4th of July weekend. Happy birthday, USA.

    I gonna speak my mine on dis one privately. private, isn’t dat a good ting….

    I guess you like to work “in close” and dats fine.

    Fo’ me, I think it’s kinda distressing that this guy was “dropped off” at an UNSUPERVISED workout by a coach (who, in the players’ eyes, should be a trusted individual) to be amongst players who would probably only see the “NFL star” aspect of this guy.
    I doubt that any of them would have been aware of the in depth stuff from the Seattle Times report on Stevens and certainly when he was “dropped off” at the practice field no one was handing out a dossier of the guy.
    I hear wat you saying about friends console friends in hard times but as a coach, he get his responsibility to the players to set an example for them to follow. He is showing the players that it’s OK to “hang-out” with dis guy, he’s cool. How is he supposed to then counsel them about the whole “guilt by association” thing later on? Stevens, by my count, get implications in four felony activities: aggravated assault, aggravated rape, leaving the scene and possession. What if one of the players start hanging out with somebody like that? What that coach get fo’ say then?
    I not judging da coach’s character at this point, but just questioning his judgement in this instance.
    Fo’ me, I no can jus’ wait ’til next Thursday fo’ say something. Sorry.

    *yawn* Good morning gangee. Happy 4th of July! Wanted to sleep in but forgot to put out the rubbish can last night and da truck wen wake me up.

    Congrats ST. TIme does fly when you’re having fun. 😀
    I’d also like to thank you for posting daily. I don’t think anyone else does. I’m not sure what we Tsaikos would do without our daily fix. :mrgreen:

  78. bighilofan2 July 4, 2008 7:58 am


    my tauts exactly. but meanwhile, we can polk fun at ourselves, can’t we?
    i mean, whatcha gonna do fo 57 dayz? at first, got me boilin, den da more I taut about it, Leahey’s antics started me laughin.

    i kinda wanna be like BarryM, da mahtuured vibe. 😆

    Ahem, so to make yu realize dis is fo real, I’m gonna go to the Hawaii County Council and get my frenleees to make da certificate foah

    COACH GREGORY McMACKIN. It’m tinkin it’ll read

    “University of Hawaii provides free Coaching Assistance and Other Supportive Services to Hawaii and Samoa to include their Children, Kupunas, Low Income Residents. There are many coaches who volunteer their time and talent to helping Others, including (that other former coach’s name omitted). 😀 They do not ask for compensation nor do they seek fame. They do it because it was the right thing to do. And they did it with sensitivity and compassion.

    Greg McMackin is one such coach (along wit dat odda coach whuze name is omitted). He is a outstanding volunteer and exemplifies the meaning of “Kahiau” by giving genreously with his heart without expectation of return,

    On behalf of the citizens of the Big Island, the Members of the Hawaii County Council extend their sincere appreciation and gratitude to Coach Greg McMackin for his exceptional service to the University and People of Hawaii. We commend you and congragulate you for going to Samoa (wit da odda guy whuze name is omitted) 😀

    howz dat?????


  79. wafan July 4, 2008 8:03 am

    Without our daily fix there would be a whole lot of crazied UH Warrior Tsai-ko’s running around looking for information. Just any tid-bit of news.

    Coach Mack would have to open the Coach Mack Clinic for the many deranged Tsai-kotics around the world. The treatment there would be 24/7 — re-runs of past games, one-on-one counseling by coaches and players, and, of course, non-stop feedings.

  80. NYUH July 4, 2008 8:04 am

    Its a tie! A five dog playoff. Hot dogs that is.

  81. FloridaTed July 4, 2008 8:07 am


    Congrats, wow, 27 years, that is a long time, but I’m sure, looking back, it might as well have been the blink of an eye. For certain, in your business, that’s true longevity. Looking back on life, I’m always amazed that the only real thing we have are thoughts and their results, either looking forward or backwards. The present doesn’t really exist, it’s like a constant little brook running over ones hand.

    That’s why writers are so important, they’re the ones who record the thoughts of humanity, recording our collective and fleeting consciousness, preserving them to be something tangable.

    Creating this blog is a great example, without it all our thoughts would just fly around, fading into the eather of space, but here it is recorded and creating substance.

    For that, we all thank you.

  82. 99club July 4, 2008 8:07 am

    Congrats on the 27 years and mahalo for the excellent stories and blog.

    I like your point on the irony of the Olympic hiring deadline coming and going. At least they didn’t hire anyone we know.

    HAPPY 4th EVERYONE! Beer of the day is Sam Adams, of course. (brown ale)

  90. wafan July 4, 2008 8:30 am

    d1 . . .

    Some of us dream. Some of us do. I am glad Mr. Tsai is a do’er. Otherwise, we really would require the services of the Coach Mack Clinic.

    But for the off-season, I think I would not argue about being placed in the CM Clinic for Football Withdrawal. Especially if it were staffed with cheerleaders, Midori7 and UHFan808.

  91. Stephen Tsai July 4, 2008 8:31 am

    My first story was the Macfarlane regatta.
    It’s the best because it’s held with the surf (although it’s a grind paddling out to sea against the current).
    The regatta started at 8 a.m. But it was in Waikiki, and I had trouble finding parking. I got there at 8:25. I was horrified. I thought, my first assignment and I’m 25 minutes late.
    Seven hours later, I’m still at the beach, my shoulders are blistering and I’m thinking about why I didn’t become a CPA like my pops.
    Later, I learned, that you never show up at a canoe regatta before 1 p.m.

  92. marlis July 4, 2008 8:34 am


    Your right we sure do get a chuckle at what we read. One example, of one that has me rolling of my chair is the Karl Benson (current WAC commissioner) speculation for the soon to be opening for PAC-10 commissionorship. Hold on to your stomach and listen to him. He doesn’t tell you the MWC negotiated a 120 mil./10 year television contract (CBS) and the WAC has 2 years remaining on a television contract (ESPN) that pays the WAC 1 million a year. That’s right… only 1 million a year. Or the poor officiating in all sports. Or his biases to Boise State.

    Listening to Jeff’s radio show Wednesday. Benson said he’ll listen if the PAC-10 comes calling. But with reverence Benson, a 75′ alum of Boise State with many distinguished alumni awards from the school, said that …you guessed it…Boise State would be a good fit for the PAC-10. Laughable? If anything I would go with the current MWC commissioner before Benson.

  93. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 8:38 am

    You must’ve been skinny back then, eh, Tsai?

  94. wafan July 4, 2008 8:41 am

    marlis . . .

    If Benson moved (anywhere would be okay with me) who do you think would be the best fit for WAC Commisioner?

  95. Stephen Tsai July 4, 2008 8:42 am

    My best moments at The Tizer were covering the Chaminade-Virginia game (I was a last-minute fill-in for “Ferd), the UH-Washington game last year, and UH winning the WAC basketball tournament in 1994. My favorite UH people are Tes Whitlock, David Hallums, Michael Carter, Matt Harding, Micah Kroeger, Costas Theocharidis, Dejan Miladinovic, and Doug Vaioleti.
    And two weird moments:
    • We were facing a deadline, the top of the sports page was open, and Alika Smith hadn’t committed to UH yet. So I drove over to Kalaheo, where he was sitting in the gym with his girlfriend. I talked to him for about a half hour until he committed. We made deadline.
    • I sneaked into Kaiser’s ICU, telling a nurse that I was Riley Wallace’s relative. I walked in, and he was all hooked up to tubes and stuff. He looked at me and said: “What the hell are you doing here?” Ah, good times.

    K, enough about me.
    I’ll be back… after I march in the parade.

  96. d1shima [sez:] July 4, 2008 8:43 am

    d1 . . .
    Just remember that it would not be nice to step on Fumbler’s air hose, fool around with his IV’s, or draw pictures on his chart.

    Not that any of us wish evil things for the guy.

    But, I do wonder how much disarray he will cause with the USOC. They might show up on the odd years for the Summer Games. Geez.

  104. FloridaTed July 4, 2008 9:10 am


    Hawaii is still a little better off than Florida right now. Our economy went totally in the crapper. 43% of all new condo’s are empty. The real estate frency and the subsequent crash has created a black hole, sucking everything in its wake down the drain. Our loan syndicator has dropped out and the minimum requirement now is a score of at 650 for new new start-ups. That eliminates about 70% of my clients. Oh, well, people here are really scared.

  105. Da Punchbowl Kid July 4, 2008 9:10 am

    Happy Fourth of July Tsaikos!

    God Bless America
    By Irving Berlin

    “While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
    Let us swear allegiance to a land that’s free,
    Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
    As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer. ”

    God Bless America,
    Land that I love.
    Stand beside her, and guide her
    Thru the night with a light from above.
    From the mountains, to the prairies,
    To the oceans, white with foam
    God bless America, My home sweet home.

    Those words ring true as ever these days. Our great country faces challenges at home and abroad which are daunting to say the least. It’s interesting to note that Irving Berlin wrote this American classic in 1939, another time of great challenge and uncertainty for the United States. God Bless America.

    Umm, what? WHAT?! Really? A chance to finally thank Colt in person and shake the hand of the man who led our team to the most spectacular UH football season I have ever had the privilege of witnessing?


    *passes out*


    *jumps back up*

    Oh, wait, I got so distracted that I forgot for a second why I came here! It was to wish everyone a truly enjoyable Fourth of July!

    *passes out again*

    A Riley Wallace relative? And on whose side of the family……

    That is a classic.

  110. Da Punchbowl Kid July 4, 2008 9:27 am

    I missed the blog yesterday and didn’t have a chance to tell Dara what an excellent bio she posted. I don’t know if she posts under a nic here, but given her experiences with UH football,it would sure be nice to have her perspective thrown into the Tsaiko stew here.

    Speakin’ of perspectives, between marlis’ and bhf2’s posts, all I can say is “bow wow,laulau, you guys get ’em ah?” Winnah, you guys’ mana’o. 😉

  111. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc July 4, 2008 9:27 am

    Nice pictures of the players’ skills.


    Off to march in the Kailua Fourth of July Parade. Cheer loudly as the Beach Access float passes by if you’re planning to attend.

    Can you work your magic on some of the local football recruits who haven’t committed for next year? Coach McMackin can use all the help he can get.

    Congratulations on your 27 years!

    If you want good boiled peanuts, go to Tanioka’s Seafood & Catering in Waipahu – best boiled peanuts (and poke).

  114. Da Punchbowl Kid July 4, 2008 9:45 am

    Among your many great accomplishments here at the HA, you may also add “blog photographer specialist” (or what ever fancy resume padding title you can think of) to the list. Your pics look great, and the stories behind them are just the kind of stuff that we UH fans need to help us through the slow “football news” periods. The pics and stories build our connections to our Warriors as individuals, and they help to put us “in the shoes” of these guys as they walk the Warrior walk(sorry to use that analogy, but the pictures don’t lie). 😆 It’s funny to think back and recall your first pics. Lot’s o’ field and not so much Warrior. Your shots have really improved in content, framing and or cropping. Good job, grass hopper.

  115. Kekoa July 4, 2008 9:50 am

    G’day Tsaikos!

    Now appearing for my 1st time ever as a Graphic Are-tist, specializing in making T-shirts that carry the Tsaiko persuasion…Ta-dah!…Kekoa!

    Some random thoughts of The Pacific School of Fine Arts.

    ~ Mahalo to da *A-Joe* ohana for putting me thru the “How-To-Make-Any-Kine-Stuffs” in 3 easy lessons in just 4 tries! I konna P guud at it foam now on!

    ~ ST closely supervised the midnite workshop of *Ocean’s 11* and we somehow managed to keep from blowing up the craft shop.

    ~ Mahalo to Stretch for teaching me how to sand blast, or blast sand, whichevah. Very hot job, but oh so richly rewarding. Wait until your see all of those blasted glassware items the crew helped him make.

    ~ Thank you SteveM for helping me keep from melting my slippahs to the heat press!

    ~ The Evil Twins wore their halo’s slightly tilted to the darkside, but added a bright light to the work ethic of James & Koakane by keeping them busy handling wine and beer mugs…something they are experts at already.

    ~ Wreck was reminding all of us of the program he has put together for the Blog Bash. Wow!…made me wanna go camp outside the Sheriff Center from Wed. nite so I can be the first one in the door Thurs. at 6 PM!

    ~ ….and the glue that held us all together, A-Sports, a tip of the UH sports hat and hershey kisses to you gurl. I appreciate your allowing us to share your playhouse for a brief moment in time and create things I never thought possible in this lifetime.

  116. MeiLing July 4, 2008 9:53 am

    GRM, mahalo for the tip! I’m jus’ wonderin’ whether I can get boiled peanuts at the Warriors games at Aloha stadium, too.

    Off to the couch to watch the UH-Fresno St. game while the green chile stew is cooking.

    Have a safe Fourth of July everyone!

    Congratulations, Stephen! That is a long time to be with one company. They better appreciate you!

    Poor Riley he opened his eyes and the first thing he saw was the devil. Or so he thought.

    Poor Ferd he missed one of the biggest games in the history of basketball in Hawaii. Wil Pounds became one of my favorite players after that game. So agile for a big man.

    None of ST’s favorite UH people are wahines. What Stephen they no like you????

    Had to do a double take at his pic this morning. Garza sure looks like Colt.

  123. Da Punchbowl Kid July 4, 2008 10:57 am

    Glad I got my Colt autograph before before the crowds started showin’ up. As in last year, pre-season,on his birthday, after practice. My crew, homey and James were the only other guys on the field, as I recall…

    By golly, that Jacob Heun looks like a comic book super hero, doesnt he? I say, first we teach him to do the shaka and the Ha’a. Then we put a Warrior green poi pounder insignia on his shirt, right in the middle of his chest. Next we give him a fern haku lei and a short green cape with a taro leaf design, add a black mask ala Vili and… Bam!!! Behold. “The Pounder”!!! Pummeling opposing defenses with his hammering runs and crushing blocks, as he and the rest of the mighty Warriors march to victory!!!

    Ok, that prolly sounds silly. Sorry, all this dang writin’ I’m doin’ these days causes the imagination to buckle loose some times. Unless of course you like it, then ummmm, I’m not sorry.

    “the pounder” I like it. I think it’s going to stick. has their review of Fresno St. today…rough way to start the season with Rutgers, UCLA, Wisconsin, and Toledo. Although starting with Florida (favored to win the SEC and BCS nat’l championship by many) and finishing with Cincinnati (favored to win the Big East) isn’t easy either.

  130. Mrs. A-House July 4, 2008 11:19 am

    Reading the HA this morning, I need to make a “shout out” to the Kodama Koi Company for their donation of 100 Kois to the East-West Center Japanese Garden located on the UH-Manoa campus.

    I take this as another example of the community taking pride in UH and their way of making UH a better university.

    Thank you to the HA for printing a photo in Section B.

    May others use this example to “lift” UH to higher levels – donations can be something other than cash.

    As I mentioned before, “let it begin with me”.

  131. Jason July 4, 2008 11:27 am

    Happy 4th of July to everyone. And DPK, thanks for posting the lyrics to God Bless America. Every time I think of that song, I think of Ronan Tynan’s renditions at Yankee games. To think of what our nation and the world has gone through since 9/11. Still, it stands strong, able to celebrate yet another birthday.

    And congratulations to Stephen, for his anniversary. And to Allie, for her wonderful pictures. She must have taught Stephen a few things, cause he’s getting a lot better. What skill, to be able to get koakane in that shot with Jake Heun. In fact, I think that should be his nickname from now on. Jake “Koakāne” Heun. 😉

  132. Stretch July 4, 2008 11:44 am

    Good Morning Tsaikos!!

    I know it’s late as I planned to post this earlier this morning but there is only 30 minutes remaining until I close all RSVP for the party. No more after 12 noon!!

  135. Stretch July 4, 2008 11:47 am

    There was a group of us that worked late last night to finish up some pretty nice stuff for the party. I will be taking pictures and asking SteveM to post it on his site. It will have the prices so people know what’s for sale.

  136. Da Punchbowl Kid July 4, 2008 11:58 am

    Jay Boy-
    Happy Fourth to you, nephew. What I didn’t add to the post regarding “God Bless America” was this: our country not only met the challenges in 1939 and the six years that followed, it blossomed into the world power it is today. When we have the will, we can find the way. We see signs of that emerging will, but these next couple of years will very crucial. Maybe you’ll be part of Americas next “Greatest Generation.”

  137. 99club July 4, 2008 11:58 am

    Howzit Kekoa!

    I was listening to rivals radio replays this morning and they had June talking about Hawaii. He was really high on our D this year and predicted they’d “bring it” to Florida. They’ll be even better by the end of the season, eh?

  138. Da Punchbowl Kid July 4, 2008 12:05 pm

    Almost noon. I can have a beer. Yipee! No more deep thoughts…

    Kekoa and 88,
    Glad you guys like it. 🙂

    One last thing I’m grateful for on this 4th of July. I’m very grateful that I’m ten minutes away from a Beck’s Light and some poke, when i could have been dressed up as the school janitor and marchin’ with Tsai. It’s HOT out there…

  139. Stretch July 4, 2008 12:06 pm

    ***** BLOG PARTY CLOSED ******

    the party is officially NOT accepting anymore RSVP’s, no more waiting list. We need to put the count together and make the food order. Thank you to everyone who emailed me and I look forward to a night of fun. For those who are not attending, there are other parties, cattle calls, karaoke for you to attend through out the year.

  140. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 12:11 pm

    I had my Beck’s (regular not light) about an hour ago. Makes me so lethargic, can barely do the laundry. Yeah, today is Friday so it’s laundry day. Thank god for the Roomba that is vacuuming my family room right now.

    Ah, the life of Riley!

  141. Da Punchbowl Kid July 4, 2008 12:13 pm

    The talent on this team reminds me of the team during the preseason when Nate, Samson and the rest were seniors. Great athletes, great potential, not to bad on paper. (depends on who’s writing that paper of course). Kind of an unknown quantity to outsiders, but we Warrior fans know what JJ knows… They WILL bring it! This team has lots o’ super heroes!

  142. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 12:15 pm

    hubby is going to see Wanted starring Moran Freeman and Angelina Jolie this afternoon. Then he will come home and BBQ 4 thin sliced New York steaks. Will eat those with potato salad, broccoli, tossed salad, and for dessert, we will have Mango ice cream.

    So looks like we are totally off nutrisystem diet today!

    We also had portagee sausage (hot) for lunch.


  143. Stretch July 4, 2008 12:16 pm

    gigi – are you an alcoholic?? If you drank the beer about an hour ago, that would be 11am. That is a dangerous sign. At least I wait until 12noon.

  144. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 12:18 pm

    guilty as charged!!!! I am proud to admit that I have drunk a beer at 9 am also on a separate day of course.

    But I drink just ONE beer — unlike Stretch. j/k nah, seriously…

    t’anks, kekoa.

    BTW, stretch, how many now attending the bash on the 10th?

    But I drink just ONE beer — unlike Stretch. j/k nah, seriously…

    Eh, I only drink 1 beer (Tsaiko mug)

  149. Da Punchbowl Kid July 4, 2008 12:22 pm

    Since it’s the fourth, why not honor the holiday and wash items which are either red, white or blue? Perhaps that will “lighten the load”. 😉 See what happens when you drink before noon?! I wont be lethargic until a FULL hour after you! 😆 I suppose I can do that one load of laundry I’m supposed to do after a nap…

  150. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 12:23 pm

    stretch, hubby says he can eat just 3-4 hot dogs so cannot enter the contest. What blows him away is most of the contestants were SKINNY. He was so excited he was screaming and his heart was pounding. It went into Overtime, more exciting than a warriors football game.

    it was the highlight of his 4th of july, he said.

  151. Stretch July 4, 2008 12:25 pm

    Re: Blog Party Count

    We have 137 on the list.

  152. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 12:27 pm

    DPK, are you nutz??? Red white blue?? That would stretch my laundry duties till next week.

    eh, I rather get it over with.

    you GOT to be kidding. Hot dog eating CAN NOT compare to La Tech, Nevada, San Jose, Washington…. to name a few from last year

  154. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 12:28 pm

    137 people attending? not bad. hope they pay up and don’t stiff you!

  155. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 12:29 pm

    MLE = major league eating

    Video game for the Wii. — He wants to buy it and throw a party contest at home. Eh, count me out. One hot dog is all I can eat.

  156. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 12:31 pm

    Dog Off = overtime when you each have 5 dogs to eat, the 1st one to eat all 5 wins the contest.

    every pulsating bite!

  157. Stretch July 4, 2008 12:34 pm

    gigi – hubby better watch out tonight with all this hot dog eating that is going through your mind today.

  158. Stretch July 4, 2008 12:34 pm

    gigi – how much did those 4 steaks that you are BBQ’ing cost??

  159. Stretch July 4, 2008 12:37 pm

    What is everyone’s thoughts to possibly playing Central Arkansas as the opener next year 2009??

    I think playing one and only one 1-AA game a year IF we have 13 games, is okay. If it is only a 12 game schedule, better not. Play two like last year, no can do.

  160. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 12:37 pm

    4 steaks cost $11.61 at Sack n save.

    last time, hubby bought 3 steaks at Costco for $22. Too much meat cause they were too thick.

    the ones I bought today will cook fast.

  161. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 12:39 pm

    playing Central Arkansas is as exciting as porridge — but probably good for the team as they brush off the cobwebs to start the season.

    you sure you never buy beef jerky?? must be really thin steaks

  163. al July 4, 2008 12:41 pm

    Please note…..all high schoolers interested in playing for the home team

    i know there has been much attention brought here about the university’s lack of interest in neighbor island student/athletes. you know my position has been, that if you really want to be a part of the home team, then you gotta go out and grab the attention of the coaches. if you wait it may be too late.

    your golden opportunity is here. you must sign up and attend the football camp held by the university of hawaii next week. you must be there to show that you want to be a warrior and that you have the skills, size, talent, and all the other intangibles.

    be there. snooze you loose!

    …nuff said!

  164. al July 4, 2008 12:43 pm

    gg….the difference is in the grade.

    costco = u.s. choice
    sack n save = u.s. good

  165. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 12:44 pm

    Total weight of 4 New York steaks, boneless, was $1.25 lbs.

    enuff for 2 adults.

  166. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 12:44 pm

    sorry 1.25 lbs

    Guess people cannot just show up without one?

  177. stacyj July 4, 2008 1:02 pm

    Congrats on 27 years ST. You’ve been there almost as long as I’ve been alive. WOW!

    Heun is pulling a Skippa Diaz with those taped fingers. Hope he has the same mentality as Coach Diaz.

  178. Bosnoda July 4, 2008 1:04 pm

    Nice 4th of July Parade!

    Saw ST, but the highlight of the parade (for me) was Jim Donovan and Greg McMackin!

    I don’t think I can ever remember JJ being in one, let alone HF.

    BTW-ST, you walked too fast, didn’t get a chance to get any candy : )

  179. Stretch July 4, 2008 1:04 pm

    stacyj – how come you not coming to the party?? my mom is….

  180. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 1:05 pm

    gigi ~ Here’s a mellow tune from Sudden Rush for you to relax, pop open that 2nd bottle of Beck’s, and dream a little with….

    If that doesn’t work, maybe she can try some patriotic marching band music at full blast. It works for me on drunken fourth of July laundry days.

  182. stacyj July 4, 2008 1:09 pm

    Just out of curiosity, are you logged onto the blog 24/7? via cel phone? I try to read the blog everyday and I see you on all the time but I know you got a job (at least I think you do). I’ve tried to post via my blackberry but it would not work. Just wondering.

  183. Stretch July 4, 2008 1:11 pm

    stacyj – i know when you are on the blog so make sure I am here. If you are not here, I am not also. It just seems that I am here 24/7. BTW – I get one job and am very busy during the day.

  184. addahknowjoe July 4, 2008 1:12 pm


    nuff sleep?

  185. addahknowjoe July 4, 2008 1:13 pm

    Wea da twins- dey sleeping their best too, eh?

  186. stacyj July 4, 2008 1:14 pm

    Strecth, I live in Kona. I have 4 children (3 1/2 years apart) with one that is still breast feeding. My husband owns his own business and this is the busy season…yadda, yadda, yadda. I WOULD LOVE TO COME but there is no way I could pull it off. Trust me, I am sad not to be able to attend.

    Hi gigi! did you see, you’ve inspired my to start blogging again :-).

  187. Da Punchbowl Kid July 4, 2008 1:15 pm

    When are you guys going to the SSC to set up next week?

  188. stacyj July 4, 2008 1:16 pm

    you stalking me?

  189. addahknowjoe July 4, 2008 1:17 pm


    Calvin from Kona would be more than happy to baby sit your kids for you while you attend the blog party. Just ask.

  190. addahknowjoe July 4, 2008 1:18 pm

    DPK- Koakane will be there at 1:00

  191. Da Punchbowl Kid July 4, 2008 1:18 pm

    Braddah Ajoe,
    Did you get my email about the sign?

  192. addahknowjoe July 4, 2008 1:18 pm

    Stretch napping.

  193. addahknowjoe July 4, 2008 1:19 pm

    DPK- Yup. I waiting for a quote.

  194. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 1:20 pm

    hey, Joe, I don’t think Calvin from Kona knows how to breast feed.

    Stacy, I should visit your blog. do you blog every day or sporadically?

  195. BG July 4, 2008 1:21 pm


    Stretch isn’t worried about coming up short on funds. Name only goes on list is payment is received. Only names on list are allowed in. The twins and Pride are the “keepers of the door”…ho, no need HPD 😆

  196. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 1:22 pm

    BG, ok, good to know this.

  197. addahknowjoe July 4, 2008 1:23 pm

    gigi- I’ve learned long ago never to under estimate our braddahz from Kona. They innovative and resourceful. =)

  198. Da Punchbowl Kid July 4, 2008 1:25 pm

    Stretch usually prefers doin’ a ‘lil instigating now and then. homey and James are the stalkers.

  199. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 1:28 pm

    Stacy, please give us the link to your blog. mahalo.

  200. stacyj July 4, 2008 1:29 pm

    gigi, try to every day now. sometimes several in a day.

    Ajoe, as long as CFK is willing to change 2 sets of kids’ doodoo diapers (several a day for my boy), sleep sandwiched between 2 (sometimes 3 or 4) kids, cook 3 meals and 2 sets of snacks, do laundry, clean dishes, etc. while I have an overnighter to Honolulu. Oh, that also means waking up at 6am since husband leaves before that so there is no reinforcement until dinnertime. I’m open to it if he is.

    Hey, it might be a good way to get the baby off the boob.

  201. stacyj July 4, 2008 1:45 pm

    that’s all in a days’ work for that braddah. Sounds like the clients he deals with everyday. =)

    BTW- you Kona girl or did you move there? I have family and friends up and down the Kona coast.

  203. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 1:46 pm

    OK, I did a little research and dug up this LINK TO STACY’S BLOG —


  204. stacyj July 4, 2008 1:51 pm

    yup, that’s mine.

    I came to Kona a year ago from Honolulu. Husband started a company here. We love it.

  205. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 1:53 pm

    STACY — I added your blog address to my blogroll on my site. Mahalo for adding mine to yours!

  206. stacyj July 4, 2008 1:54 pm

    Gigi, if you read it, it mentions ST’s story about mango sap reactions in the mid section. See, I’ve been reading this blog for awhile.

  207. Stretch July 4, 2008 1:54 pm

    A-Joe – pretty much collapsed after walking in the door and woke up in time to post a warning of the cut off. Now need to wash all the glasses and get them ready for the party.

    The list of 137 is the total number of people who emailed me. I am confident that everyone will pay for party, I received over half already. For those who have sent your check but didn’t receive a cofirmation email, please wait until Monday or Tuesday so I can check the mail.

  208. stacyj July 4, 2008 1:55 pm

    Gigi, i check your blog every time I check the new WB post.

  209. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 1:59 pm

    haha Stacy, t’anks! Being a shut-in, I often have a hard time coming up with a topic for the next blog entry. But, somehow I manage to write about something.

  210. addahknowjoe July 4, 2008 2:04 pm

    Stretch- Awesome work crew last night. Everyone was cranking!

    Stacyj- what kind of business does husband have?

  211. BG July 4, 2008 2:05 pm

    Hope the Tsaiko Ohana is enjoying this special day!

    DPK – Thanks for your posts #105 and 136. I admit that I am pessimistic about our long term future as I look around me and see, not our grandparents and great grandparents patiently toiling to build a greater nation, but generations that seem to feel entitled to what they have. And, want more…given to them. I am always up-lifted when examples step forward to prove that image wrong. Alas, they seem too few! There are too many who have never been taught what the price of freedom is. For them, the expectation is that someone else will pay it. I am thankful today that (at least for a little while), we celebrate our past greatness. I am thankful for the Tsaiko Nation whose members have a real caring for each other, and are all too ready to step forward to “get it done”…with humor no less!


  212. BG July 4, 2008 2:09 pm


    BTW, i use XP and IE6 at work and XP with IE7 at home. Same inconsistent experiences with redirection with both.

    Time out for the over 60’s afternoon nap…bwahahahaha

    Maybe not that well. Forgot my manners.

    Good Morning Tsaikos and Tsaikettes!


    When you get back, let us know how the parade went? Hope you didn’t unconsciously veer off into a part of the unsuspecting crowd. I’ve been on auto-pilot myself.

  227. 99club July 4, 2008 2:53 pm

    Wow. $9 lb. for steaks? I just bought two racks of baby back ribs for $3.99 lb (5 lb). Cooked ’em 3.5 hrs at 250. Threw the sauce on and then 5 minutes or so on the grill. I would have cut ’em up but they kept falling apart. 🙂

  228. addahknowjoe July 4, 2008 2:57 pm

    99club! Aloha my friend! Hows things in the Southwest on this wonderful holiday weekend?

    A few days ago I was giving ‘Sports a little background on SRV. She’s getting into his style.

  229. jm2375 July 4, 2008 3:05 pm


    Note of encouragement re your diet. At my WW meeting this week, our leader told us to have 1 meal this weekend where we can whatever we want and not to worry about counting points. Every so often, but not too often, you gotta do it or you’ll come to resent the “diet”. I think my meal will be tomorrow night at the alumni assoc dinner, where I will be seeing Stretch. Right Stretch? 😉

  230. 99club July 4, 2008 3:06 pm

    Hey A-joe!

    Things are going great today…only 92 or so. We’ll be going to watch the fireworks on the lake in a couple hours with my lady doing the designated driving.

    RE: SRV. One convert at a time! If you listen to David Bowie’s hits of the 80’s, that’s SRV on guitar…listen close.

  231. UHfan808 July 4, 2008 3:18 pm

    Hiya Addaknowjoe and Addaknowsports – Thank your for making time for us last night. We’re very pleased and tickled. Had lots of fun too!

  232. addahknowjoe July 4, 2008 3:20 pm

    99club- thnx for the heads up. I’m gonna check it out. Good to know tidbits of why things are.

    UHfan- You are most welcome. Did you get enough sleep? Seems like you’re up a little early now, huh? =)

  233. Wena July 4, 2008 3:24 pm

    A Ha!! You guys just got up? Steve HAD to get up very early. I warned him about the parade and he was acting all happy last night, like it would be no problem. He did get up early, with a smile on his face,…he walked in the parade and was a good sport. But right now, he’s out cold on the couch.

  234. Kekoa July 4, 2008 3:29 pm

    Wena ~ Give ST this message (post # above) from me…Tick…Tick…Tick…

  235. Addahknowsports© July 4, 2008 3:31 pm

    Hi Wena-

    I bet Stephen never got out of his shirt before the parade, huh?

  236. Kekoa July 4, 2008 3:31 pm

    Whoops! that should read post #226.

  237. HiFlyer July 4, 2008 3:31 pm

    Good Afternoon all, hope you all have a safe and fun 4th of July.

    So where is the outlaw jesse james and koakane today.

  238. Wena July 4, 2008 3:35 pm

    I went to talk to Steve and I think he is still sleeping. He just laughs and then its silent. I think he doesn’t understand what I just said.

  239. Kekoa July 4, 2008 3:37 pm

    HiFlyer ~ I saw those 2 outlaws heading north on Kalihi Street at oh-dark-thirty this AM. Couldn’t tell who was driving as they kept bouncing off the cars parked on the side of the street!

  240. addahknowjoe July 4, 2008 3:47 pm


    You know, those two (Kekoa & James) are the addah Twinz. Those two always end up hanging wit each addah. The Monarch bond is strong between da two!

    Not sure who’s Devito or Schwarzenegger, though.

  241. addahknowjoe July 4, 2008 3:49 pm


    Did he even bother to wash his Little Learners shirt he had on last night before today’s parade or did he fall asleep in it, get up and just go straight?

  242. Stretch July 4, 2008 3:50 pm

    addaHknowjoe – I think it supposed to be Koakane & James

  243. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 3:50 pm

    you mean koakane and James.

  244. Stretch July 4, 2008 3:52 pm

  246. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 3:53 pm

    don’t dare drink another beer cause for sure I’ll fall asleep.

  247. Stretch July 4, 2008 3:56 pm

    gigi – nothing wrong with taking an afternoon nap. I woke up at 1130, then 230 went back to sleep for almost an hour. What a way to spend the 4th of July!!

  248. UHfan808 July 4, 2008 3:57 pm

    Stretch, You got mail!

  249. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 3:58 pm

    for some reason, I have a hard time sleeping during the day no matter how tired I am. Jes drag my okole around. Pretty sad, eh?

    hubby is at the movies right now,

    hope he doesn’t burn the steaks tonight.

  250. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 4:01 pm

    Wow! Your okole is that saggy that you have to drag it around?

    How do you hold it up under the mu’u-mu’u?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

  256. UHfan808 July 4, 2008 4:16 pm

    gigi- Wot, hubby didn’t make it a date??? What movie?

  257. UHfan808 July 4, 2008 4:18 pm

    Stretch, Must be your lucky day. You got annodah mail!

  258. UHfan808 July 4, 2008 4:19 pm

    wafan- Sorry to hear you won’t be able to make July 10th party. Mebbe I’ll get to meet you sometime soon!?!

  259. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 4:20 pm

    eh, DFK, I’m too old to be marching around!

    Wafan, das why I wear a muumuu — to hide my okole.

    UHfan, since it’s an action film, I didn’t want to go with him. “Wanted”

  260. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 4:24 pm

    hubby is a real movie buff. Watches 4 flicks a week via Netflix. Last holiday, he saw Indiana Jones at the theater.

    Remember Silence of the Lambs? He actually enjoyed that cannibal movie. I refused to watch it.

  261. Wena July 4, 2008 4:26 pm

    Steve had the Little Learners shirt hanging over the staircase, and this morning, he asked if he can have a brand new shirt, and I said “No Way”. So he was stuck with the stinky one he wore the day before.

  262. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 4:27 pm

    eh, hubby just got home. He said Wanted was TOO VIOLENT. He wishes he had seen Hancock instead.

  263. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 4:28 pm

    OK, now he’s drinking a beer. I agreed to BBQ the steaks cause he is color blind for red and orange.

  264. Wena July 4, 2008 4:29 pm


    They really needed Cheryl on the float. The kids sang well, but they could of used more VOLUME…if you know what I mean.

  265. wafan July 4, 2008 4:30 pm

    GG . . .

    Just flip them over your shoulders — no dragging, problem solved.

    You just have to remember not to fart, though. You could blow your hair over your eyes and then you would not be albe to see.

    Sorry. The mind pictures are getting to me.

  266. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 4:31 pm

    wafan, you sure you not drunk right now?

  267. Wena July 4, 2008 4:32 pm

    ok…I’m out of here. The tables are calling.

  268. Da Punchbowl Kid July 4, 2008 4:32 pm

    Who’s DFK?

  269. J July 4, 2008 4:32 pm


    What happened to Steve? He’s had a lot of vocal practice…of course if it was quality that you were after, give Joyce the mic.

  270. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 4:34 pm

    sorry, DPK. I am making lots of typos today.

  271. addahknowjoe July 4, 2008 4:37 pm

    Ayesoos dat one!

    UHfan808 . . .

    Sadly, this year I will not be home early enough. Usually, I would be home already — once I am finished with my kids and my work with the national conference I am on a plane West-bound!!! But, this year, I decided to bring Mom up so I can take her to visit Washington D(arn) C(razy).

    But, I will be home for most of August! Yahoo!!! I am sure we will have the opportunity for some gatherings then.

  273. Stretch July 4, 2008 4:41 pm

    gigi – you must be one of those “one beer queers”. no can handle the alcohol. it’s affecting you 5 hours later

  274. wafan July 4, 2008 4:42 pm

    GG . . .

    Yep. I am sure I am not drunk. I do not drink, so being drunk is not an option. I do, however, have a strange sense of humor some people just do not get. During the school year I have to be so straight-laced because of my kids. But, away from them . . .

  275. wafan July 4, 2008 4:43 pm

    Stretch . . .

    Maybe GG is a cheap date? One drink then yahooooooo!

  276. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 4:45 pm

    haha I remember drinking from a 1/2 carafe of white wine at Keo’s one night. I was so drunk I felt dizzy and nauseated. That was the last time we ordered 1/2 carafe.

  277. UHfan808 July 4, 2008 4:45 pm

    SteveM- Alert, alert, (beep, beep, beep, beep; honk, honk, honk, honk!):

    –> wafan coming to town in August !!!!!

    (…unless you already knew…)

  278. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 4:48 pm

    wafan, what is the time period you will be in Hawaii? Exact dates, please.

  279. SteveM July 4, 2008 4:51 pm

    UHfan808 — yes…alert, alert! I believe wafan mentioned he’d be around when the August 16 date was targeted for a possible Karaoke Call…

    But we’ll still shoot for the 16th anyway… mwahahahaha 😆

  280. UHfan808 July 4, 2008 4:52 pm

    wafan- Can we “party” with you??? If so, what you like do??? No worry, we twins (or is it “us”?) drink wata…

  281. UHfan808 July 4, 2008 4:54 pm

    SteveM- Yay! We get to meet wafan!!!

  282. wafan July 4, 2008 4:56 pm

    GG . . .

    ~7/28 to ~8/22.

  283. Da Punchbowl Kid July 4, 2008 4:56 pm

    Just roll with it, baby. It’s beer under the bridge. 🙂 Have another one and enjoy the rest of your fourth.

  284. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 5:02 pm

    7/28-8/22 — Hawaii public schools are in session at that time. Interesting. Do you teach at a public or private school?

  285. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 5:03 pm

    DPK, maybe. See how I feel after I BBQ the steaks.

  286. UHfan808 July 4, 2008 5:05 pm

    wafan- Please excuse my excitement. I see your posts all the time and will finally get to meet you. Amongst other UH football things, I want to hear your instructions about clearing the sinuses when you’re ill. lol

  287. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 5:05 pm

    looking forward to the potato salad. Sack n Save makes a great Best Foods potato salad!

    The mango ice cream should be delicious also.

  288. wafan July 4, 2008 5:06 pm

    UHfan808 . . .

    Absolutely. I would be honored to have the opportunity to make your acquaintence. There are more Tsai-kos and Tsai-kettes to meet this year! Whoo-hoo!!!

  289. UHfan808 July 4, 2008 5:07 pm

    wait, was that wafan???

  290. UHfan808 July 4, 2008 5:08 pm

    gigi, I heard Hancock is not that good either.

  291. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 5:10 pm

    UHfan, yeah, hubby read the reviews on the internet. Wanted had better reviews so that’s why he decided to see it.

    However, he says Hancock would have been better cause it’s like a Superman flick — it is a happy flick whereas Wanted is just plain violent.

  292. wafan July 4, 2008 5:18 pm

    GG . . .

    We are on the traditonal school year — same one you knew when you were in school. I still do not understand the reasoning Hawai’i’s DOE has for having kids and teachers in school during the hottest months of the year. Unless you have a/c in EVERY classroom I would be complaining to the OSHA offices and L & I offices. To be expected to work and learn in teaching areas where temperatures approaching 95+ degrees is ridiculous.

    I really think the a/c for all state offices should be unplugged and removed until every classroom has functioning and sufficient a/c. Schools would see some positive action then!

    Sorry for the diatribe. I had to contact our L & I office here during the winter when my classroom was down in the 60’s all day, and after the district had its chance to correct the problem. The district sure responded quickly by turning the heat on and leaving it on 24/7.

  294. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 5:23 pm

    The Hawaii BOE is planning to lengthen the summer break by several weeks to enable students and teachers to attend summer school.

    I agree it is ridiculous to teach during the hottest months. Daughter likes the new schedule cause of the breaks every few months.

    BTW, Lingle has approved the budget to add a/c to some schools with more schools to benefit later.

  295. wafan July 4, 2008 5:25 pm

  296. wafan July 4, 2008 5:29 pm

    GG . . .

    Good for the kids! Now all the state has to do is not ding schools for going over their “allotment” of electricity, and maintain the a/c. Otherwise, what is the use? Works for a couple of years and then back to they have now?

    The more they tinker with the school year the closer it gets to what it was before. Crazy people who have been out of the classroom too long. Theory works great in the text books!

  297. wafan July 4, 2008 5:31 pm

  299. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 5:39 pm

    BOE is planning to add 2 weeks to summer break and subtract 1 week from xmas and spring break each.

    I think this would be an ideal schedule.

  300. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 5:41 pm

    anyway, I really hope you all enjoy your retirement as much as I do. I began to write professionally in 1999, retired from my other job in 2001, and have been having a blast since then.

  301. Stretch July 4, 2008 5:48 pm

    bhf2 – if you can, please send me the name of your friend that is joining us for the party. Email to tsaikoparty at yahoo. thanks

  302. chawan_cut July 4, 2008 5:56 pm

    anyone know how amber kaufman did today in the olympic trials?

  303. Stretch July 4, 2008 5:56 pm

    SteveM – I emailed you pics & prices of all the glasses that we will be selling. Please post on your site when you have time. Thanks.

  304. Stretch July 4, 2008 6:10 pm

    A few REVISED updates for the party

    1. I will be making nametags for everyone. It will include your blog name (if any) and your real first name. If there is anyone who has a problem, please email me at tsaikoparty at yahoo.

    2. We will have “Tsaiko” logo items for sale. Glass mugs, t-shirts and stickers. There is limited supply but if we run out, we will take orders and make more. See SteveM’s site to view pictures of glassware.

    3. We will be giving one raffle ticket to each person attending for the prize giveaways. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased for $2 each, 10 max. Additional donations will be accepted and all money goes to UH/Football. One prize person – if you win a prize, your other ticket numbers will be void.

  305. Ralph July 4, 2008 6:17 pm

    Is Mac introducing any songs, Haka, or chants to begin his reign….I read he is revisiting Hawaii 5-0…Many still enjoy and like it, but its old…we need something to tie him to a new era of Warrior fb…we need excitement, those went to SB got a chance to hear the Georgia fans, we need a ramped up atmosphere of our own..

  306. Ralph July 4, 2008 6:21 pm

    JJ has a new song writer friend doing one at SMU- Pony Up: Mustang Nation to rise up by Robert Lee Kolb…

    Lots of interest and excitement for Mac and the up coming season, we need a cheer or song or both…we need something beyond Vili and his drums…

  307. Ralph July 4, 2008 6:24 pm

    Vili has a performance contract and a trademark to his image which UH can’t use without paying him…so why keep him, get another mascot that is UH property and trademark to use and collect royalties for the UHAD and the salary paid out could be used as a tuition waiver for some student to do what Vili is doing at games…

  308. Kekoa July 4, 2008 6:24 pm

    BHF2 ~ So you da ankah clankah inside da canoe? Why no make Fred Flinstone and put 2 holes for your feet and walk da bottom. Shallow da wada right?

  309. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc July 4, 2008 6:32 pm

    Had a blast in the Kailua Parade – LOTS of support for keeping beach accesses open. Saw Stephen and Wena beforehand and then again after the finish when we caught a ride on the trolley shuttle back to where we parked.

    However, our float was about half way in the middle so we missed the Athletic Director and the Coach.

    Afterwards, we went to Boardriders, our favorite sports bar – cool and quiet with all 13 tv sets turned on to one sports channel or another.


    RE helping with setup on Thursday. I keep reading about people working on this or that plus a couple of folks also wrote that they cannot help out which means that they were asked. Again, let me know if you need any help with setup.


    CHANGE OF SUBJECT: A few months ago, Jason encouraged Warrior Beat regulars to help his efforts to raise funds for the Relay For Life event held on campus – in fact, at Cooke Field.

    At the time, we said that we would be taking part in the Kailua Relay For Life and would let people know about how to contribute when it came closer to the date.

    The Kailua RFL starts on Saturday, July 12, around 3 pm and ends on Sunday, July 13 at 7 am at Kailua Beach Park in the section opposite Buzz’s on the road going into Lanikai.

    There’ll be entertainment, food, games, talk story time, and, of course, the opportunity to take part in the Relay itself – all in a location often named as one of the finest beaches in the world.

    Here’s how you can support the Kailua event even if you don’t attend in person. Please make a donation to honor someone who has dealt with cancer or to recognize someone who’s had a job promotion or a birthday or graduation in the family or whatever needs to be celebrated.

    Make your check payable to the American Cancer Society. If you want it to go to the Windward Branch of the American Cancer Society, then note on the memo line it is for the Kailua Relay For Life. If you want it to go to the larger organization, just leave the memo line blank.

    You can mail it to the American Cancer Society, Windward Unit, 130 Kailua Road, Suite 102B, Kailua, HI 96734. Or you can give it to DrDoc or me at the Blog Bash on July 10 and we’ll deliver all the checks to the Windward Unit in one bundle.

    We’re recognizing four Warrior Beat families this way – two who are dealing with cancer and two who are celebrating a milestone in their immediate families.


    Another family-oriented event coming up on July 19 in the afternoon – a picnic barbecue in Nu`uanu Valley. We’re asking for a few volunteers to help set up the EZ Corner tents plus tables & chairs beforehand OR to work with older kids & teens on basketball, volleyball, or football skills for about 1-1/2 hours in exchange for fantastic food and fun while helping out a really wonderful program called Family Promise.of Hawai`i.

    More to come on this by the end of weekend.

    Off to watch the fireworks. Be safe everyone.

  310. Jason July 4, 2008 6:32 pm

    gigi: You’re drinking the wrong beer, you gotta drink Pabst Blue Ribbon. (Read post #140 if you don’t get it.)

    One prize person – if you win a prize, your other ticket numbers will be void.


  311. Stretch July 4, 2008 6:39 pm

    Jason – reasoning is that we want everyone, if you can afford to buy additional tickets or not, to have a chance to win a prize. There is not TONS of prizes so want to make sure more people win rather than have one person who wins multiple prizes.

  312. Kekoa July 4, 2008 6:39 pm

    Attention In Da Village! On DA Aina!

    Pauoa Boy is now in-country!…

    He touched down at Hickam about 17:40 and is sequestered at the Pauoa Boy Compound undergoing Agricultural Decon. Just like Californians no like our Ag bugs coming ovah. We think they should be heavily inspected before they are allowed in our State.

    Anywayz, he’s got a family BBQ planned tonite and then the Speed & Quickness clinic in the AM. I asked him to save some time to visit da Wessai. Shoots! Kinhn Channa sumni da!(Jason help me out brah!).

  313. Stephen Tsai July 4, 2008 6:47 pm

    I’m awake again. Mufi said hi at the parade. I asked him if he was coming to the party. He said, yes, but you never know.

  314. Jason July 4, 2008 6:50 pm

    Stretch: What I’m wondering about is if you win something, and then something you like better comes along and one of your voided numbers gets called.

    Kekoa I don’t even know what you’re trying to say there. This is why there needs to be one consistent way of Romanizing Korean.

  315. Stretch July 4, 2008 6:51 pm

    ST – Tell him toooo late, it’s after 12 noon. If he shows up, I will turn him away. hahaha

  316. Stretch July 4, 2008 6:52 pm

    I am still learning this whole computer thing. I was actually able to upload the photos of the Tsaiko glassware. See attached link.

  317. Jason July 4, 2008 6:56 pm

    Count me in for one of those 16 oz glasses.

  318. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 7:03 pm

    I’ll buy two 16 oz glasses for $20 total. What a buy.

    How many of them are there?

  319. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 7:05 pm


    I don’t get it. What has Pabst Blue Ribbon got to do with Becks?

  320. Stretch July 4, 2008 7:05 pm

    I am interested in people’s interest but NOT taking orders now. First come first serve at the party.

  321. Pauoa Boy July 4, 2008 7:06 pm

    I hope Mufi can make it — just so I can personally tell him what a great idea having a train running from Kapolei thru Salt Lake is.

    Steel on steel tech is what Tokyo uses. Super quiet inside and out. I really liked it.

  325. Jason July 4, 2008 7:09 pm

    gigi: Pabst Blue Ribbon has nothing to do with Beck’s. It does have to do with The Life of Riley.

    Stretch: Okay, sorry about that.

    OK, for those following my thread — the BBQ steaks were excellent. Thin slice so they cooked fast.

    I ate 2 and hubby ate 2.

    Great dinner.

    I think all of you will appreciate the craftsmanship (craftswomanship?) of the designer glasses. The Twins, the Addaknows, Stretch, Kekoa, SteveM, James, Koakane and Wreck did an excellent job. It takes a lot of patience to wrap (Stretch, Midori7) and unwrap (Koakane).

  331. Stephen Tsai July 4, 2008 7:32 pm

    Pretty interesting lineup at the QB Club on Monday: Kevin Lempa (former UH defensive coordinator) and Delbert Tengan.

    Happy 4th of July everyone. A big Mahalo to the men and women of our Armed Forces and all of our Veterans who have sacrificed so much in defense of our freedom. The lyrics from a song by Team America to help remember our brothers and sisters serving overseas. May they have a safe 4th of July.

    Freedom isn’t Free

    What would you do
    If you were asked to give up your dreams for freedom?
    What would you do
    If asked to make the ultimate sacrifice?

    Would you think about all them people
    Who gave up everything they had?
    Would you think about all them War Vets
    And would you start to feel bad?

    Freedom isn’t free
    It costs folks like you and me.
    And if we don’t all chip in
    We’ll never pay that bill.
    Freedom isn’t free.
    No, there’s a hefty (xxxxxxx) fee.
    And if you don’t throw in your buck ‘o five
    Who will?

    What would you do
    If someone told you to fight for freedom?
    Would you answer the call
    Or run away like a little (xxxxxx)?
    ‘Cause the only reason that you’re here
    Is ’cause folks died for you in the past.
    So maybe now it’s your turn
    To die kicking some (xxx).

    Freedom isn’t free
    It costs folks like you and me
    And if we don’t all chip in
    We’ll never pay that bill
    Freedom isn’t free
    No, there’s a hefty (xxxxxxx) fee.
    And if you don’t throw in your buck ‘o five
    Who will?

    You don’t throw in your buck ‘o five. Who will?

    Sorry about the xxxx part. Explicit lyrics and I don’t want to get SMU’d. For the members of our five military services and military civilians that are spending this 4th of July away from home, God Bless You and Thank You for your service and sacrifice.

  334. Stretch July 4, 2008 7:33 pm

    ST – should be an interesting Monday QB Club. I wonder what DT has to say??

  335. BG July 4, 2008 7:36 pm

    Back for a little while…Howzit dere Tsaikos and Tsaikettes!

    Ralph #307 Sounds like you have the financial analysis OK, but the execution may have pitfalls. Do you remember what it was like when the UH ran the mascot program? It wasn’t pretty. Vili represents the best depiction of a Warrior that we have ever had. He’s a showman who personifies Strength and Power, and Hawaiiana without the ridiculous foam rubber costumes that so many schools employ. I cringed every time that pink, bubble gum mascot came on the field in the days before Vili. 😳 Yikes!!!

  336. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 7:39 pm

    Maryland Terrapins football team — Kevin Lempa is secondary coach (per Wikipedia). Is this THE kevin we know?

  337. Stephen Tsai July 4, 2008 7:44 pm

    Don’t worry, Gigi, we’re going to prepare you so that one day when we give a name from the past, you won’t need Wikipedia.

  338. Ralph July 4, 2008 7:46 pm

    BG the wrong people ran the mascot program, who would have taught of a marshmallow man for a mascot…DUH..oh, its you, Rep. Mark Takai…you’re forgiven since I know your mom and dad and I know they raised with a lot more sense than your ASUH days.

  339. Ralph July 4, 2008 7:51 pm

    BG give a tuition waiver to a student in ethnic studies or Hawaiian studies to represent Hawaiiana in a form of a warrior..Vili could be a hollywood version of what a true hawaiian warrior looked like back in the days. Don’t recall seeing any warriors looking like Vili at the Bishop Museum…His image could be a stereotyping of a warrior, UH should ask the Hawaiian Studies peeps if his image is appropriate.

  340. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 7:53 pm

    ST, per Google, there are quite a few Kevin Lempas running around in this world.

    Very confusing for a neophyte like me.

    BTW, when I googled my real name, I saw a lawyer with my 1st and maiden name living in Austin Texas.

    And there’s one with my first and married name living in New Zealand.

    Pretty scary.

  341. Jason July 4, 2008 7:54 pm

    Wow, gigi actually looked something up? 😯

  342. Stephen Tsai July 4, 2008 7:57 pm

    There’s another ST. Apparently he’s an attorney with a popular Web site. Sometimes I’ll go through Google, and he’ll be the top search. But then UH will do something and the WB goes back to No. 1.

  343. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 7:57 pm

    Jason, this is one of those nights when I am not being lazy. haha

  344. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 7:59 pm

    ST, kind of freaky, eh? I think it is because my name — GCH — is so unusual.

    eg., Hubby is the only Hinchey in the phone book.

  345. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 8:01 pm

    Being the only Hinchey in the phone book is kind of interesting. When I write letters to the editor, people look up Hinchey and call me regarding my letter.

    It’s like having a fan club cause these callers are so pleasant.

  346. Stephen Tsai July 4, 2008 8:06 pm

    Well, I must be a bad blog host. Almost every Tizer blog has something about the 4th of July. I just figured we all know it’s the 4th, and we know about the history of the country.
    Anyway, my bad.

  347. Jason July 4, 2008 8:09 pm

    July 4 is George Steinbrenner’s birthday. Speaking of New York teams, the Knicks signed Chris Duhon to a 2-year deal.

  348. Jason July 4, 2008 8:10 pm

    Actually, he will sign with them. Verbal agreement.

  349. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 8:13 pm

    July 4 used to be an important date for me when I was working full-time. I would always schedule my vacation around that date in order to have an extra paid day.

    There were some memorable trips.

    Croatia July 1990.

    East coast July 1987.

    New York City July 1997.

    Now that I am retired, it doesn’t matter.

  350. BG July 4, 2008 8:48 pm

    Wait up, Ralph. No need to be PC…sometimes that pendulum just swings too far the other way and becomes ridiculous again. I don’t believe Vili is billed as or is called the “Hawaiian Warrior”. He is “Vili the Warrior”. And I don’t see where the UH is called the “Hawaiian Warriors”. The football team is the “Warriors”. Yes, a lot of Polynesian culture is infused into the program, but there’s nothing I see (I could have missed it) that says the mascot has to be Hawaiian.

    Anyway, that’s what I think. You have your opinion, and I’ll respect that.

  351. BG July 4, 2008 8:51 pm

    Just got back home from watching the Ala Moana Fireworks. Pretty nice. It MUST be my lucky day because first I got email from UHfan808, then while driving along Kapiolani Park tonight looking for parking, a car’s reverse light went on. Parked the car then watched the fireworks from the Aquarium area.

    is the QB club still meeting at the Pagoda? i might drop by to ‘hear’ what DT has to say…d1, you interested? let me know…..

    heard some titilating tidbits of info regarding kalaepohaku and coaching and stuff, d1, call me tomorrow to discuss.



    ouch, so i am at my office on standby notice to all my officers at their hotels….oh well.

  365. Stretch July 4, 2008 9:59 pm

    For those who have not mailed out checks yet, I suggest you mail it out at the latest on Monday. If I don’t receive it by Thursday morning, you will be required to pay the walk up fee of $25 per person. Any mail that is received after Thursday will be returned to sender. Your cooperation is appreciated as we have to pay for a lot of items before the party Thursday, including the food. Thanks.

  366. stacyj July 4, 2008 10:01 pm

    Eh stretch, you knew I was getting on now so you came back?

  367. L10pc July 4, 2008 10:04 pm

    Hey Stretch,

    I put my check in the mail yesterday…hopefully you’ll get it tomorrow. Thank God for the stimulus payment 🙂

  368. al July 4, 2008 10:05 pm

    you know i got to know stretch real well this past year. he is a man of integrity and would do battle for any of his friends without question.

    tonight, i will go to bat for stretch, because he won’t say a word to any of you.


    —the order has been placed to the caterer based upon everyone’s email rsvp to stretch.

    —approximately 50 of the 137 rsvp’s have not made payment yet.

    —stretch has his name on the dotted line for the contract.

    please, please, please…if you haven’t made payment yet you need to mail your check to him tomorrow. don’t stiff a fellow blogger!

    —that’s too much money to be left hanging. if you rsvp’d, that was your word/promise to pay for your committment to the blog party.

    don’t forget pre-paid tickets was $20 per head and at the door it will be $25 per head.


  369. Jason July 4, 2008 10:08 pm

    Stretch: You get everyone’s e-mail address too, yeah? You might want to e-mail those who haven’t paid yet, just so they see the message. Stephen might want to post that up top too. Just a suggestion.

    I know you guys have been pretty busy lately; if you need some help, let me know.

  370. Stretch July 4, 2008 10:09 pm

    stacyj – i think you are stalking me. I better check with my mom to make sure I shouldn’t be afraid of you!! hahah

  371. Barry Markowitz July 4, 2008 10:11 pm

    Ralph, you are absolutely correct re: Vili the paid professional performer. I recall in publicly reported financial demands a few years ago re: a video football game including NCAA mascots, Vili denied he was the UH Football mascot…again he purportedly claimed he was an independent contractor paid professional performer…not part of any NCAA game deal. But…if you do a search on Vili in the local Hawaii newspapers, you will find an interview, I think by the Tiser, inwhich Vili (again as I recall from memory) was proud to be the newly contracted UH Mascot. Can one have it both ways?

  372. Stretch July 4, 2008 10:14 pm

    Thank you all for posting a reminder also.

  373. Stretch July 4, 2008 10:16 pm

  374. Stretch July 4, 2008 10:19 pm

    For people on the mainland that are interested in Tsaiko glassware, shirts and stickers, please email me at tsaikoparty at yahoo. It will cost the same as shown plus the shipping. USPS has flat rate boxes that we can use that cost about $10 and can hold maybe 3 pieces. There are bigger boxes that cost $13 for mailing. I will work out the postage with you.

    See attached link for pictures and prices.

    pride and i will help collect at the door if need be….including the mayor….haha, but really, that is a valid point you have brought up.

    there have been occasions and i will go to bat for AL, that HE has covered some of the shortfalls in this group.

    that is unacceptable, so let’s not make a big thing about this ok? auryte

    thanks for everything, you have a lot of help but i know you are running with the torch on this one…..mahalo

    and for those that are thinking of ‘stiffing’ stretch…….don’t even go there, what goes around comes around….TEN FOLD….and i didn’t say fold your TEN dollar bill in half to make the TWENTY appear…..

  378. Bulla July 4, 2008 10:24 pm

    It isn’t only me working on this party. There are a number of us putting this together. All I am doing is collecting the money and paying the bills.

  380. Ralph July 4, 2008 10:27 pm

    BG you okay with a Japanese, Filipino, or Caucasian warrior dressed in hawaiian or polynesian attire running around the stadium..I don’t think so…yes we are a multi racial culture in Hawaii but I do think the intent was to reflect an image of a Hawaiian warrior

  381. Stretch July 4, 2008 10:28 pm

    Bulla – funny you should mention folding the money in half to look like more. I admit I have done that a few times at restaurants for tip. I fold it in half leave it under the plate so the waiter thinks he get’s a HUGE tip.

  382. Ralph July 4, 2008 10:34 pm

    Al well put, thank you for bringing it up…folks its an honor system, guys like Stretch has stepped forward and paid up front for all of us to make the bash happen and I hope for those who haven’t paid feel a sense of responsibility and send in your check. Don’t hedge, thinking what if I don’t go, waste money, but Stretch is paying up front for your RSVP commitment..Rich did the same with UNLV game, bought a lot of tickets for people he did not know and everyone paid up, it the right thing to do

  383. al July 4, 2008 10:35 pm

  385. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 10:37 pm

    So if 50 don’t pay, Stretch will be out $1,000? That’s a lot of money! Be responsible, folks!

  386. A-House July 4, 2008 10:39 pm


    I do not know who the invited guests are, but any one who invited some one to the blog bash is responsible for paying the $20 fee, not the Tsaikos who attend.

    I really miss those days where a “hand shake or word’ was a person’s honor.

  387. stacyj July 4, 2008 10:41 pm

    Re: Warrior, I have always said Vili is not what I would say represents a Hawaiian Warrior. I found his act to be very un-Hawaii. Never was a fan of that.

    There was a real life Warrior at one time.

  388. stacyj July 4, 2008 10:41 pm

    I meant to say un-hawaiian.

  389. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 10:42 pm

    Folks, if you don’t receive email from Stretch that confirms you paid for the party, then that means Stretch did not receive your check.

  390. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 10:44 pm

    I am going to bring my confirmation with me to the party just so there’s no misunderstanding at the door.

  391. Stretch July 4, 2008 10:44 pm

    Thanks everyone for the concern. I am confident that everyone here will take care of their responsibilities.

  392. stacyj July 4, 2008 10:44 pm

    Is there still a wait list? Maybe give away spots to wait-listed folks.

  393. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 10:46 pm

    I happen to like Vili. He is very entertaining to watch.

    Love his contingent of drums and drummers, too.

  394. Stretch July 4, 2008 10:46 pm

    stacyj – everyone who was on the wait list was accomodated. We had opened up again but the final deadline was today at noon. No more for the party, not even wait list.

  395. Pomai July 4, 2008 10:51 pm

    snowflake is growing up, just like his dad i guess. quiet house, playing rball again, and getting used to it all. kind of hot in Utah right now, he’s just training, running and getting ready for fall camp on august 1st.

    he’s adjusting to ‘college life’, but his focus is laser and determination rock solid. #95 hopes to do his best come 9-6-08 at aloha stadium. i will have oxygen and a defribrillator with me for that one, haha.

    cannot wait to see everyone at the Blog Bash, i hear the Yeager Bombers will be making a guest appearance……will there be a dance routine? i don’t know, but i wouldn’t underestimate those 3 Tsaikettes at all…..lively even at church, haha.

    happy 4th everyone, let us all say a prayer of thanks for all of the men and women in harm’s way so that we may say we are FREE…….

  398. Stretch July 4, 2008 10:58 pm

    For the party, there will be beer, juice, water and one bottle of CR. ST will donate some soda. We are allowed to bring in our own drinks so if you want something other than what is listed, bring it down.

  399. Pomai July 4, 2008 10:59 pm

    Reminder – ST check your email

  400. al July 4, 2008 11:00 pm

    coolers okay?

  401. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 11:03 pm

    Al, das why I use a calculator. lessee, 50 x $20 = ?

  402. stacyj July 4, 2008 11:04 pm

    Gigi, I don’t mind entertaining and drumming. I don’t like the way he depicts a warrior. Last time I saw a Hawaiian warrior, he didn’t look remotely like Vili. Just my personal issue.

    I like the suggestion of bringing it back to a student involvement type of thing. Get some students to do the drumming too. The more students involved the better.

  403. gigi-hawaii © July 4, 2008 11:05 pm

    I didn’t have that 2nd beer that DPK suggested, but I am still sleepy. So I’ll say —

    Ralph & StacyJ: Another Honolulu newspaper indicated that Vili is NOT the official UH Football mascot in their sports story. So lets nominate an official one…

    “Hawaii beat Texas-El Paso 31-15. But unofficial mascot Vili Fehoko got into a confrontation with a UTEP cheerleader that led to the equivalent of Vili being called into the vice principal’s office and told to tone down his act.”

  413. L10pc July 4, 2008 11:57 pm

    Hi Stacyj –
    re: post #386. I remember when there was a warrior for the mascot, but there was also some conflict from the native Hawaiians since the buff parts were fake. He looked the part, but there was that same ‘authenticity’ issue. So, basically, it all comes down to personal preference, I guess.

  414. SteveM July 4, 2008 11:58 pm

    Stretch — good job. In fact, I modified and used 3 photos from your site.

    BTW, I enjoy seeing the albums posted on the Tsai-ko events. There, people can get a feel of the occasion from different perspectives. I ask everyone that I be allowed to snitch a few pix once in a while for my web site archives to mark the occasion.

  415. Stretch July 4, 2008 11:58 pm

    PB & others – I will check the mail again on Monday.

  416. Ralph July 5, 2008 12:09 am

    Barry most schools is not all except Hawaii have mascots! UH can’t claim Vili as a mascot because he is a professional performer whose image is trademarked and as a performer he performs at UH games and events. Somewhere I read that he is paid about $65K and I don’t know if this is a fact. But a university mascot with a tuition waiver will cost us about $7K for a resident and about $10K for non resident. UH ends up with a mascot, college kid gets financial assistance. UHAD should look at ways of helping kids pay for school, how about someone on the scout team, they don’t dress for the game and I’m sure there are some without scholarships

  417. Ralph July 5, 2008 12:11 am
