Thanks

Avis selects 808Ike as the winner of the John Wooden-autographed book. Text me at 256-0223 to collect.

* * * * *

I apologize.

I’m just not very good at saying goodbye. That and the fact that for some reason I always get an allergic reaction — once it was chili peppers, I insisted — that  makes me tear up, coincidentally, whenever it’s time to say farewell.  My kids call it: “Dad’s chili-pepper moments.” Or, as my son might say: “The Bozo is going to  blame the chili peppers again.”

Anyway, special thanks to:

• Dave Koga and Andy Yamaguchi. Those were the two writers I idolized growing up in The Advertiser. They spent the past several years as editors, so few have been able to read their brilliant prose. But Dave, Andy and brother Michael Tsai are the top writers in the state.

• Clyde Mizumoto, Steve Kimura, Paul Carvalho, Kyle Sakamoto and Bart Asato were always there to correct my mistakes, and, trust me, I’ve made a lot of mistakes, especially on deadline stories. In The Advertiser system, the sports copy editors also were responsible for rewriting the roundups for all of the national and local stories, such as the high school games not covered by a staffer. It was thankless (and uncredited) work, but they did it with great skill and pride.


• Stan Pusieski and Brandon Masuoka. As page designers, they always created displays that complemented and, more often than not, enhance the stories. And when writers screwed up by writing too long or too short — again, especially on deadline — they would make the adjustments.

* Reporters Stacy Kaneshiro, Dayton Morinaga, Wes Nakama, Kalani Takase, Stan Lee and Leila Wai.

• Da Clerks.

• And  Avis Yasumura, Christie Lee Williams, Elroy Garcia, Sarah Montgomery, June Yago, Celia Downes, Richard Couch, Zenaida Cadaoas, Helen North, Curtis Lum, Greg Yamamoto,  Richard Ambo, Leslie Kawamoto, and the retail and classified sales staffs.


I love you all.

And, darn, the chili peppers.

    Sacramento State wants into the WAC. They, Texas State, UT-San Antonio, Montana, UC-Davis, Cal Poly, and others will be among those considered, but any team moving up to D-IA from D-IAA will need a few transition years and will count as a D-IAA team even when they are a WAC member for at least one year. That could hurt the bowl eligibility of some WAC teams.

    Sacramento State is no Big Sky Conference power. Terry Wanless, the school’s athletic director, is the first to admit it.

    But it’s for that very reason that he believes that the idea of Sacramento State moving to the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) at this juncture might help his athletic program experience a level of success it has not yet attained in the Big Sky.

    “We haven’t had the historic success other Big Sky schools have had,” Wanless said. “We’re still climbing the ladder. The WAC makes that ladder a little taller, but it also makes it more exciting.”

    The Hornets would have a fair amount of facility improvements to make, but the program has already begun the process, having just finished a new football facility two years ago.

    Wanless said that Sacrmaneto State is currently operating on a $15 million annual budget, which is approximately $2 million more than the budgets at Montana State and Montana, according to MSU athletic director Peter fields and UM athletic director Jim O’Day.

    Wanless believes a move to the WAC would require that Sacramento State add $5 million to its annual operating budget. When asked if he thought his school could support such a budget increase, he answered simply.

    “I think we could,” he said. “I’m very comfortable in thinking that we could make that happen.”

    mahalo to you ST and staff.


  8. 808ike June 6, 2010 8:28 am

    Thanks, ST.


  9. d1島 June 6, 2010 8:29 am

    heheheh


  10. pakegolf June 6, 2010 8:30 am

    Ditto the sentiments. From a long time lurker, thanks ST and the Tsaikos for hours of entertainment. See you on the other side.


  11. Garret June 6, 2010 8:30 am

    Cal Poly is hoping to move up to the WAC.

    With speculation pointing toward a shift in college conference alignment — and news expected to come as early as Monday — Cal Poly could be facing its best, and perhaps only, chance of moving to the highest level of college football this summer.

    There are questions whether the university could afford to make the jump from the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision to the Football Bowl Subdivision, both monetarily and competitively.

    At the very least, making the commitment to move would eventually require completion of a multi-million dollar stadium expansion and 22 additional football scholarships, all while the state struggles to crawl out of a crippling economic recession.

    Though Cal Poly is nowhere near the front of the line of dominoes that could fall in many different directions all over the country, it’s foreseeable that the Mustangs, along with Great West Football Conference rival UC Davis, could end up with an invitation to join the Western Athletic Conference, which is home to CSU programs in Fresno and San Jose.


  12. Garret June 6, 2010 8:32 am

    The interesting thing is that the conference that Cal Poly and UC-Davis play football in may fold soon…so, they either move to the WAC or end their football programs. That puts a lot of pressure on their University and their boosters.

    Gearing up for WAC meetings starting this week, conference commissioner Karl Benson was unavailable for comment but has identified a list of potential invitees within the past month, including: Cal Poly, Montana, Portland State, Sacramento State, Texas State and UC Davis.

    For Walsh, who is preparing to begin his second season at the helm with Cal Poly, it’s clear something has to happen soon. He fears the five-team Great West Football Conference might not be around in the near future. Even if it is, the travel won’t be getting any easier with trips to mostly out-of-the-way destinations.

    Without a major airport, San Luis Obispo is not an easy place to get in and out of, and neither are three of the other members’ cities — Grand Forks, N.D., Vermillion, S.D., and Cedar City, Utah.

    “We have to take advantage of whatever opportunity is created for us, and I think the opportunity to be in the WAC is a legitimate one,” Walsh said. “I think it’s the right fit. It’s good for us. It puts us in the western region of the United States, which is nice, and it fits us with some good natural rivalries.”


  13. papajoe2 June 6, 2010 8:35 am

    where are Cal Poly and Cal Davis located? i prefer california schools if we have to take anybody. traveling to Montana and Texas might be a stretch. (sorry stretch i couldn’t help it).


  14. 808ike June 6, 2010 8:39 am

    Mahalo to you ST and the rest of the staff at the Honolulu Advertiser.


  16. papajoe2 June 6, 2010 8:41 am

    is sad that we are not looking to combine with the MWC. i hope Hawaii gets asked to go to another conference that will be giving Hawaii more money, more money, more money. with adding all these “unknown” teams, i hope the NCAA doesn’t revert us to Pop Warner status.


  17. d1島 June 6, 2010 8:41 am

    Cal Poly…San Luis Obispo….look for the violent student protests in the streets.

    Davis, CA…..you got me???


  18. troll June 6, 2010 8:42 am

    Re-Bidding Aloha to the Honolulu Advertiser

    “Keep the change,” my father once said, as he handed a newspaper boy a twenty.

    At that time, I was eight. And I couldn’t understand why he would do that.

    Perhaps it was because of my young age and my curious nature. And perhaps it had a lot to do, as I have learned later, that my father’s childhood days were also filled with being a newspaper boy, delivering in the St. Louis Heights area and at the old stadium.

    I remember that day. I remember how the newspaper boy quickly put the twenty away with a big smile on his face. And replied with words reserved for generous purchasers , “thank you sir.”

    That remembrance I’ll never forget.

    Today, likewise, with the closing of the Advertiser I’ll never forget.

    Somewhere along the line from the newspaper boys, writers to editors– everyone of the staff included; everyone, including the readers, has equity in the paper. A 154 years of history, a 154 years of the Advertiser striving in giving the public the best in reporting the news, comes to end today. So it hurts deeply. It hurts similarly like imagining a once robust pineapple field burning to the ground. And never to be replanted. So I’m very saddened today.And I join in with others in wishing that those that are affected by the void, and void left behind, better days. Aloha Advertiser.


  19. papajoe2 June 6, 2010 8:42 am

    Pop Warner status might be good too. then i can volunteer coach again.


  20. Garret June 6, 2010 8:43 am

    UC-Davis and Sacramento State are very close to each other–if you drive from San Jose to Reno, Davis is a nice stopping point in the middle of your drive.

    Cal Poly (San Luis Obispo) is in Central California, about halfway between SF and LA. They are a little bit of a pain to get to because you can’t really fly directly there–you fly somewhere and drive pretty far to get there.


  21. madeinhawaii June 6, 2010 8:43 am

    Time to change buses I guess…
    too bad.. this one was so comfortable..
    but then, who knows what the next one will be like, eh?
    Different company.. different support staff.. but still the same driver..

  22. 808ike June 6, 2010 8:43 am

    ST,

    What is the new web site info for those moving over?


  23. papajoe2 June 6, 2010 8:45 am

    i’ve been reading the HA sooooooooo long i could swear i was there for the first edition. 154 years? well, maybe not.


  24. Garret June 6, 2010 8:47 am

    One of my wife’s friends from Castle High went to UC-Davis when we lived in the Bay Area so we stopped to visit with him several times. We toured the campus twice and always seemed to find an excuse to eat at the In-N-Out there. There were a good number of students from Hawaii there that we would always run into.

    The big trouble for Davis, Cal Poly, Sacramento State, and all other California schools is that they are having their budgets really squeezed due to the budget cuts in California. This is a difficult time for them to come up with the money to move to D-IA. The Texas schools have a lot more money right now…


  25. Rich2176 June 6, 2010 8:47 am

    Hello Fellow Tsaikos –

    A bittersweet day knowing this is the last day to post on the blog as we know it, along with all of the hard-working staffers not knowing what the future holds for them.

    All I can say is thanks for the memories and see you on the “other side”.

    Best,
    Rich2176

    PS – Thanks for all of the b-day wishes!!

    Morning Tsaikos!

    Thanks ST for all the years of a great blog. I hope it doesn’t get altered in any way as it becomes part of the HSA.

    Cal Davis is 15 minutes from the Sacramento airport, but they do not have a large stadium for football.


  31. papajoe2 June 6, 2010 8:55 am

    Garret, with the softbows not playing and the basebows on the brink of elimination (never say never) keep feeding us with the info about conference switches. i really appreciate your efforts to find all this information. too bad for me and all of us that you couldn’t be at the KKcall last night. eventually i will meet you when i travel to San Diego for a cruise, and can thank you personally.

  37. Garret June 6, 2010 9:01 am

    Re-posting from the last blog:

    The MWC schools are meeting today. BSU to be invited or not should be decided today. BYU’s President is working on a Sunday on this issue.

    The Big 10 schools are meeting today. Will they speed up their expansion plans due to the Pac-10 threat?

    The Pac-10 schools are meeting today. Their commissioner is presenting his plan for expansion today to their University Presidents.

    There should be a LOT of news leaking out today, which is fitting for the last day of the blog. The college football world could be completely different by the time ST’s blog starts on the Star-Advertiser.


  38. papajoe2 June 6, 2010 9:01 am

    we should ask the SEC if they like look at the Tsaikos to join the conference. we get all their TV money and quit and go buy beer.


  39. papajoe2 June 6, 2010 9:03 am

    QB= quit bitching? that’s meeeeeeaaaan.


  40. 808ike June 6, 2010 9:06 am

    Huddle? Heck, I vote for longer halftime and if we even make it to the field it be declared a victory for us.


  43. Garret June 6, 2010 9:07 am

    papajoe2,

    I’m glad that you like the information on the possible changes going on with conferences. I’m following everything VERY closely because things could end up being much better for UH or much worse…nothing will be the same 2 years from now.

    I also have an additional outside view of the situation because I had a fundraiser from Texas fly to visit with me in San Diego (he let me pick any restaurant I wanted for a free lunch with him!). Even though he was a fundraiser for the graduate school, it is amazing how the graduate school and the rest of the University uses their Athletic teams to encourage donations! The availability of tickets and the location of the seat you get is determined by your donation level of course. That fundraiser spent most of the lunch talking with me about the football team and the conference changes possible…he had some interesting news and explained the perspective of things from the Texas point of view.


  44. papajoe2 June 6, 2010 9:09 am

    only in the 40s and i tired already! my fingers and brain catching cramp.


  45. Garret June 6, 2010 9:09 am

    With all of those other conferences meeting today, I wonder what Karl Benson and the WAC Presidents are doing? If they aren’t meeting, are they at least talking with each other? Or are all the Presidents trying to get their schools in different conferences? Or do many of the Presidents not care enough about sports so they don’t want to bother being proactive about things?


  46. papajoe2 June 6, 2010 9:11 am

    i think i have to put my fingers to my brain to massage it.


  47. papajoe2 June 6, 2010 9:11 am

    now my ear sore from doing that.


  48. Kazz ($310.00) June 6, 2010 9:11 am

    Mahalo to Whitey and Duffer for joining me on this Wahine softball pledge.

    For those wondering, the money will go directly to UH softball for Coach Coolen to use at his discretion.

    I clock out at $310.00.


  49. wafan June 6, 2010 9:11 am

    Re-Ferd’s last column

    At first, I was eager to see what he wrote. Maybe something nostalgic I’m hoping, considering this is the final curtain call for the paper, and his 36 years with sharing a bond with his readers. Some column, perhaps, of dealing with acknowledgment to his readers. Or, perhaps, and worthier, giving homage to his peers. But nope. No treat. No departure on a good note. Instead his final column is about the umpire that robbed the pitcher of a perfect game. You know something, this is vintage Ferd.

    The Big 10 meeting is probably finished by now. They have a press conference starting in a little more than 30 minutes. The Big 12’s deadline to Nebraska means that the Pac 10 has to make its decisions quickly. Also note that the Big 12 did *not* give a deadline to Missouri…they seem to care if Nebraska leaves and seem to NOT care if Missouri does. Or maybe they know that the Big 10 does not want Missouri.

    Delany and Michigan State president Lou Anna K. Simon, the chair of the Big Ten’s council of presidents/chancellors, will address reporters around 4 p.m. ET.

    I saw an internet report that claimed that the Big 10 has invited both Nebraska and Missouri. That surprised me since I thought Missouri was off their list. However, the report claimed that ESPN News was reporting the invitation and I don’t think that is the case…so, I have to wait for the press conference.

    Sad to hear about the wahine ending their season. Keep your heads held high ladies. Now you know what it feels like to be in WCWS and the hard work to get there.

  80. Da Punchbowl Kid June 6, 2010 10:03 am

    Good Morning Gangeez! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    I remember Sunday mornings on our farm in the early Seventies, my father would send me on the 50 yard trek down the hill to the mailbox to collect the Sunday edition of the Advertiser.

    Doing this service for him meant that out of the five kids in the family, I would get first dibs on the full color Sunday comics section after my Dad read them.

    Developers bulldozed the farm in 1973 to build townhouses.
    My Father went to his maker in ’97.
    The five kids in that family are now grandparents.
    And after today, the Honolulu Advertiser is no more.

    The only guarantee in life is change, I guess.

    Thank you Honolulu Advertiser for a lifetime of memories.
    You will be sorely missed.

    To all the ladies of the Wahine softball team…….

    MAHALO!

    What a wonderful ride it was.

    For the seniors, it will be a memory for life!

    For the underclassmen, something to strive for next season.

    For me, KAZZ and WHITEY, a trip to the bank for a loan!

    But we’d do it all over again.

    Howzit Tsaiko Nation!!
    Last day before the first day.
    1. ST — Mahalo for building the hale for this ‘ohana .
    2. ‘Ohana — Mahalo to all of you for making it a home that welcomes everyone who shares a passion for Warrior sports and is willing to express that passion in a way that is pono.
    3. I’ll lurk on over to the other side and “see” you all there. Hopefully one of these days I’ll be able to travel to the big city for a game at the stadium (last time was in ’83!), and when that day comes, I’ll be sure to stop in at the T-gate. It would be great to meet some of you and experience the Tsaiko spirit in person!
    Imua ka Warrior Beat a mau loa! Aloha kakou!

    An interesting day indeed! We’re looking forward to tomorrow and hope that the ‘new” nupepa isn’t anywhere as junk as the combo tv news broadcasts.

    Sent in a contribution to the softball program as a mahalo gift for the DVD of last week’s Wahine super-regional ballgame.

    I encourage everyone who has an iPhone to install the VoiceOver app – my closeup eyesight has improved remarkably as long as I’m not wearing my contacts. In order to read/use my iPhone while wearing my contacts which makes the world safe while I drive, I need to use the VO.

    BTW – best kept secret in the Apple World – the Waikiki store. It’s not overwhelmed with 13 year olds and they have a really great series of basic workshops..

    Also, Pacific New Media at UH-Manoa is offering a couple of iPhone workshops this summer. Now if I can only shave my fingers so that they fit better on the tiny screen, everything would be cool.


  106. Garret June 6, 2010 10:35 am

    The Pac-10 Presidents and Chancellors approved expansion and empowered their Commissioner to expand with ANY teams he wants to add!

    The Pac-10 board has given commissioner Larry Scott the authority to pursue any possible expansion for the conference.

    Scott spoke following the conclusion of the conference meetings in San Francisco on Sunday. Earlier in the day, he addressed the chancellors and presidents about possible expansion and was given authority to move ahead without having to go back to the board for approval.


  107. Slugger June 6, 2010 10:36 am

    Chancellor Hinshaw was the provost and executive vice chancellor of the University of California, Davis.

    A long time ago UC-Davis was considered just an Ag school. My honey takes his horses there sometimes for major veterinary care.


  108. Garret June 6, 2010 10:36 am

    The Pac-10 has a deadline for expansion:

    The conference will decide its future plans by the end of the year before negotiating a new television contract for the 2012-13 academic year.

  111. Garret June 6, 2010 10:39 am

    ESPN article (got to pay for the articles so I’m not quoting anything from the articles) says that the Big 12 plans to *kick out* Missouri if they don’t pledge loyalty to the Big 12.

    Another ESPN article says that Kansas could go to the Big East.


  112. Garret June 6, 2010 10:40 am

    Slugger,

    UH Pres. Greenwood also came from UC-Davis.


  113. GRM June 6, 2010 10:41 am

    Steven, MAHALOs to you, Leila and the rest of your gang. The Warrior Beat of the Honolulu Advertiser is the GREATEST!! Hope the next is just as great.


  114. Slugger June 6, 2010 10:41 am

    Blank screen on http://www.staradvertiser.com, but at least I didn’t get an error.


  115. Garret June 6, 2010 10:43 am

    Chip Brown (who broke the Pac-16 story) has a very interesting article today that summarizes things nicely. This tidbit would create a domino effect for the SEC, Big East, ACC, C-USA…and eventually could shift things in the MWC and WAC.

    As these conversations with college officials have piled up, it’s become clear that – starting with Nebraska’s decision – dominoes could start falling that would lead to four super conferences.

    The Pac-10/Big 12, the Big Ten, the SEC and most likely some combination of the ACC and Big East.

    (And look for the SEC to reach into the ACC for Virginia Tech and Florida State if the Pac-10 pulls off its coup.)

    If four superconferences emerge, you could be looking at the playoff everyone has been waiting for with the conference championship games serving as the quarterfinals.

    Lawsuits would be filed by those left out, and there’d likely be government hearings into the legality of it all.

    But the playoff field of 60 to 64 teams would basically be set at the beginning of every football season with the race to get to the quarterfinals (conference championship games), then the semifinals and national title game.

    That’s why the stakes have never been higher.


  116. Garret June 6, 2010 10:44 am

    If the SEC takes Florida State and Virginia Tech, the ACC will probably raid the Big East…the Big East would raid C-USA, and so on.

  121. oldie June 6, 2010 10:47 am

    Garret,

    I also appreciate all your conference re-alignment posts.

    Maybe the best for Hawaii is a huge shake up of all the conferences. As you said, could be very good or could be very bad.


  122. Garret June 6, 2010 10:47 am

    It looks like the Big 10 just announced that they will NOT invite any team today. They said that they might not expand or they might expand in stages. The info is from the Twitter feed of reporters who went to the press conference.


  123. Da Punchbowl Kid June 6, 2010 10:48 am

    Thanks d1 –

    I hope you folks had a wela kahao time at the KK last night.
    Sweety and I were looking forward to attending until a family crisis came up on thursday.

    I spent that day in the Queens ER with my son who fractured a vertabrae in a swimming accident. He’s going to be okay, but my wife and I felt it was best to stay close to him for the next couple of days in case he needed to go back in.

    Keep him in your prayers, Tsaikos.


  124. TYaiea June 6, 2010 10:48 am

    Mahalo to you ST. Good morning Tsaiko. A big Mahalo to the Softbows for taking Hawaii to the big show.

    Once they were done, we got to open presents

    We really hated when Christmas was on a Sunday because the Sunday edition was so huge.

    ST – Thanks for bringing the Warrior community together.

    Tsaikos – Thanks for sharing your enthusiasm. Your wisdom and points of view. Just a great community here. Although, I can’t contribute as much as I would like, I just enjoy checking in to see whats up here so please keep it going.

    Garrett – Thanks for you updates on the shakeup going on with the conference alignment. I hope Commissioner Benson is on top of it as much as you are. Comm Benson … we need you to stay on top of this.

  159. Ronnie June 6, 2010 11:21 am

    Thanks to ST for creating a place where fans could become family.

    The Warrior Beat is our community. It’s the town square where we all meet to talk about how we can help the teams we love. It’s the local diner where we can talk about what’s going on in “town”. It’s the bar where everyone knows our “name” – and invites us to sing! It’s the social network where we get back in touch with people we haven’t seen or spoken to for years and meet new people who instantly become family. It’s the church full of loving, caring people who will provide for us when we are in need, be it with prayer, a place to stay, a ride somewhere, a meal, time and effort or whatever else we need.

    In this community, I’ve met friends who are now family. I’ve reconnected with best friends from my youth. I have a place where I can be as fanatical as I want about UH sports and not only do people understand, they encourage it. I’ve had the privilege of being a part of a group the is truly special and truly makes a difference in this world.

    Mahalo Advertiser for taking a chance on the Warrior Beat.

    Mahalo Stephen for getting it started and keeping it going.

    Mahalo Tsaikos for making it family.

    Is it September 2nd yet?!?!?


  160. 99club June 6, 2010 11:21 am

    Mahalo to you ST. Off-island Tsaikos around the world deeply appreciate the work you have done to keep us up to date on UH sports. Because of your blog, we can go to any road game knowing that we can meet up with Tsaikos to tail gate with. And finally, most importantly, at least once every two years we have a guarans’ ball bearin’s kitchen pass to Las Vegas due to the Warrior Beat! 🙂


  161. BleedGreen808 June 6, 2010 11:22 am

    SteveM–

    Mahalo, also, for all that you do! Continue to do the great work that you do. BIG MAHALO!


  162. 99club June 6, 2010 11:24 am

    #52-
    troll, I can’t disagree more. I thought it was a fitting final column for a sports writer to write about what was probably the greatest display of sportsmanship in decades.


  163. BleedGreen808 June 6, 2010 11:28 am

    Get well soon, Spencer!


  164. Slugger June 6, 2010 11:31 am

    Kazz,

    #48 ~ BIG MAHALOS to you, duffer & whitey for your monetary support of Na Wahine!


  165. SteveM June 6, 2010 11:33 am

    Shooting for a record number of posts today? 😕

    If everyone who ever posted on The Warrior Beat did so once today, there would be around 2,450. This poster number derived by credible blog names based on comment content and context. (My judgment call, so it could be off by a few hundred).

    I propose a “ground rule” when determining 900, 1000, etc. posters… if undeleted SPAM exists when they post, they win. Subsequent deletion of outside spam will not affect the winners. So be sure to watch it live. 🙂

  175. Garret June 6, 2010 11:44 am

    Slugger,

    MRC Greenwood was a Professor at *UC-Davis* when she was hired by UH.

    UC Davis Professor M.R.C. Greenwood, former provost of the UC system, has been named president of the 10-campus University of Hawaii, with nearly 55,000 graduate and undergraduate students.


  176. jm2375 June 6, 2010 11:49 am

    Good morning Tsai-kos!!
    I’m here, I’m here. Got home last night around 1:45, did dishes, then went sleep. Got up around 8, got dressed and took my car in for service (again). The problem I took it in for last week was still there even though they replaced the part. Got home after 11.

    Congrats to the UH Wahine on their most stupendous season! Thank you for taking us on your ride with you. Like many fans, I discovered softball this year and I loved what I found. Enjoy your accomplishments. To the seniors, best of wishes to you as you journey to the next stage of your life. To the underclassmen, keep up the good work and next year, you could. go. all. the. way.!

    Mahalo and aloha to the Honolulu Advertiser for being a part of all our lives for the past century and a half. For those not moving to the new paper, best wishes.

    Attended my first Karaoke Kall last night. What a blast!! Didn’t know Kazz could sing! During the prize giveaway, a box was tossed my way. PP was sitting next to me as I opened the box and instantly started drooling over it, so I gave it to PP. The item? Post-its and post-it flags. 😆

    To the Tsai-kos – thank you so much for welcoming me into the ohana. You guys are the best. You have re-ignited my passion for UH sports. This past season, because I knew I would find at least a few Tsai-kos, I attended my first Wahine basketball, softball and baseball games. The center-court conversationalists have also helped develop 2 new fans of men’s volleyball. You have become great friends that I know I will be able to count on if I ever need them.

    Onward to the blog record!

    Re-The end of the Wahine’s magical journey

    “We just ran out of gas,” Coolen said in today’s Advertiser article,”Bows’ magical run comes to end”. “We just couldn’t catch up.”

    Coach Coolen alluded to the thousands of miles of travel… and being on the road for 28 days as contributing to the fatigue his team suffered at the end.

    Anybody following this team, watching, would agree. I agree. Although maybe the ESPN crew wouldn’t agree. Or credit the burden that these girls played through.

    But if ones were watching closely you could see it in their bodies and faces of the emotional and physical strain taking it’s toll.

    The tell tale sign to me was watching the girls in the batters box. I’d look and watch how energized and refreshed that their practice swings would be when they’re running on all cylinders..yet in the last couple of games one could see that even their practice swings weren’t the same.It looked, to me, labored.

    Fatigue and tired may be an understatement.

    Twenty eight days on the current road trip against elite competition, combined with April’s schedule of eight games on the road was like watching, similarly, at the end a fishermen fighting for hours with a prized marlin, yet only to see fatigue set in to the fishermen and the marlin running away.

    So for the girls, like the fatigued fishermen that loss a big marlin, you do feel their pain. You feel their loss. You feel how the championship was within their grasp.

    For the Wahine they can take solace in planting the seeds, for now.

    But you know something, when you look out at the horizon it beckons this team to go further in the future. Thank you, Wahine Softball.

    I don’t know if I will be ablest do this on this blog after today so. . .

    Is there any interest in another Wahine softball DVD?

    When I offered the final game against Alabama, there was some interest expressed in other games. If there is enough interest, I don’t mind doing one more. Too much work to do them all. I have all of the files necessary for any Super Regional or World Series games (including the radio audio). I also have the WAC title clinching and the WAC tournament games (but no radio audio).

    Let me know here on the blog or by emailing me at hoherb at yahoo dot com. I’m thinking the first World Series game. . .

    Na Wahine softbows. to the underclassman. take a week or 2 off to get and do all the things that you didn’t have time for because you were busy with school and softball. then go back from day 1 of softball, from your individual preparation in the preseason, thru the regular season and into the playoffs. think about what you could have done better to make your self a better person and player. start working on those things that can make you a better player, student, and person. start NOW!!! Remember your seniors how they helped you and your teammates achieve all that your team did this year. Be the leader next year for those newcomers and players that didn’t have much playing time. No, all of you don’t have to be a holler, holler, leader. Leading by example does wonders. Decision making on what to do, and, just as important, what not to do will help the new players and returning players be successful on the field, in the classroom and in life. Remember your seniors who will not be there next year to help the team along. Remember how they felt when the final pitch was pitched and their career was over. Remember that well. Vow not to let that happen next year. Work hard. Focus. And take it to the top!!! Loved you guys this year and years past. Hoping for an even better year next year. IMUA NA WAHINE SOFTBOWS!!!

    Found on the SB, Jason Kaneshiro:

    Seven players — Stephanie Ricketts, Kelly Majam, Jenna Rodriguez, Mikalemi Tagab-Cruz, Tara Anguiano, Kaia Parnaby and Brynne Buchanan) are heading to California tonight. The rest will check out of Oklahoma City today and spend the night in Tulsa. From there, the travel party will split among three flights bound for Honolulu on Monday. They’re scheduled to reunite at 3:15 p.m. Monday at HNL.

    Wanna go welcome them? POMAI?

    When I lived in SW Missouri, I used to drive to Tulsa to fly back to HNL. Bigger airlines, better fares, shorter routes.

    with adding all these “unknown” teams, i hope the NCAA doesn’t revert us to Pop Warner status.

    Like Garret said, we can either go forward or backward. It all depends on how the chips fall. I’m afraid that a stronger Pac 10 will make football recruiting at Hawaii even harder than it is today.

    702WarriorFan,

    I thought that was you by what you wrote! I really like how you changed your name and why you did it.


  338. PineNuts June 6, 2010 1:35 pm

    Whew, way to go Bows.

    It looks like the Big 12’s deadline caused Nebraska to publicly distance themselves from the Big 10…before this they were criticizing the Big 12 (especially the revenue structure) and indicating their interest in the Big 10.

    Big 12 Meetings: Nebraska Cornhuskers AD Tom Osborne says school has no desire to leave Big 12 Conference


  341. BleedGreen808 June 6, 2010 1:36 pm

    Thanks wahine for breaking the NCAA single season HR record. You gals didn’t just break it, you broke it by a MILE


  342. Loa June 6, 2010 1:36 pm

    Good job bows!


  343. Slugger June 6, 2010 1:36 pm

    el guapo,

    Thanks for the info on MRC.

    I don’t think we really want UC-Davis in the WAC. NAU used to beat Sac. St., too. Montana is really the better football team in the Big Sky.


  344. el guapo June 6, 2010 1:38 pm

    Not sure if anyone posted about this, click on my name and please help out. Saw this in today’s last HA.


  345. Garret June 6, 2010 1:39 pm

    Maybe this changes things for Nebraska–the Big 10 has said a number of times that they would stop at 12 teams if their 12th team was Notre Dame. It is interesting that Notre Dame’s AD was present at the Big 10’s 4.5 hour meeting today…

    The 11 school presidents and chancellors along with Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick met for about 4½ hours, and Big Ten commissioner Jim Delaney said the majority of time was spent on expansion dialogue.


  346. el guapo June 6, 2010 1:41 pm

  347. Garret June 6, 2010 1:41 pm

    If the Big 12 ends up mainly sticking together, that would mean that the Pac-10 would probably be limited to Colorado and Utah or some other minor expansion. If the Big 10 ends up with 12 teams, then the SEC won’t have to respond and things won’t get too crazy.

    good day tsaiko country, finally getting up from da night of mmmmmmmmmm

    first congrats to the wahine sball team for their efforts and passion playing for the UH and the State of Hawaii. you all did us proud.

    continued success to warrior men when the go against dem sun devils again

    finally much mahalo to the advertiser for providing the many years of distinguished community service. you have provided the 808 with many fond memories. so to all the employee mahalo again and you will be missed.


  350. Garret June 6, 2010 1:47 pm

    I agree with pride.’s comment that a Pac-16 could make recruiting for UH even more difficult than it is now. A Pac-16 TV network could make every Pac-10 football, basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, etc. game available in HD in Hawaii and everywhere else in the country. The Big 10 found that boosted their recruiting in every sport in addition to bringing in millions that upgraded all facilities.

    If Pac-16 schools could tell recruits in Hawaii that their parents would be able to watch all of their games in HD against teams like USC, UCLA, Stanford, Cal, Texas, Oklahoma, etc., that would be hard for UH to recruit against. That isn’t even considering how the Pac-16 would be getting $10 million to $20 million more than they get now.


  351. koakane June 6, 2010 1:48 pm

    opp forgot to add my thanks to those who attended the kk. you made the night fun funny and funniest. good to be with you’all enjoying the tsaiko 5 “f”.

    thanks to d1 and mrs for seeing me safely home 😀


  352. Matt June 6, 2010 1:49 pm

    That USD team that the Bows beat twice in three days was ranked #15 in the last Baseball America poll.


  353. Garret June 6, 2010 1:56 pm

    The revenue gap between the Pac-10 and WAC is already well known here, but it is disturbing for me to read about the *huge* revenue gap between WAC and MWC schools. We talk about how the bottom of the WAC needs to improve, but that is hard when schools like NMSU *cut* $3 million from their Athletic budget while schools on the bottom of the MWC like SDSU add $9 million in student fees over 5 years.

    If you consider the upward trajectory of BSU’s program – the budget has increased 106 percent in six years – the Broncos look much more like the teams in the Mountain West than the WAC.

    In the Mountain West, the Broncos’ $25.8 million budget would be the third-lowest. Their basketball attendance and rankings would be well below Mountain West standards.

    In the WAC, the Broncos compete against five schools that spend $17 million or less on athletics and six schools that have averaged fewer than 18,000 fans for home football games over the past five years.

    The smallest budget in the Mountain West is $21.5 million (Colorado State). The lowest football attendance is Wyoming at 19,935.


  354. Garret June 6, 2010 1:58 pm

    The WAC’s annual meeting will be held on Monday and Tuesday in Vegas. Both BSU’s President and AD will be there…but will they still be there on Tuesday if they accept the MWC’s invitation on Monday as expected?

    When the presidents and athletic directors of the Western Athletic Conference convene this week, all eyes might be on the pair representing Boise State: president Bob Kustra and athletic director Gene Bleymaier.

    Boise State spokesman Max Corbet confirmed the two will be in Las Vegas on Monday and Tuesday for the annual conference meetings — all while speculation persists that Boise State will be invited to join the Mountain West Conference, which will be meeting simultaneously in Wyoming.

    Mahalo for last night guys and Mahalo for this blog ST… Even though I have been MIA I have always consider this my other family…


  356. Garret June 6, 2010 1:59 pm

    Nevada’s AD expects BSU to be invited to the MWC.

    “I’d be shocked if it wasn’t made,” Nevada athletic director Cary Groth said.


  357. Garret June 6, 2010 1:59 pm

    Utah State’s AD talks about the urgency of this situation.

    “The window is closing quickly in terms of time,” Utah State athletic director Scott Barnes said. “Decisions will be made sooner than later.”


  358. Garret June 6, 2010 2:01 pm

    Nevada’s AD says that the WAC and MWC cannot be pro-active…isn’t the MWC inviting BSU an example of being pro-active?

    “The bad part about it is the WAC and Mountain West are reactors,” Groth said. “We can’t be pro-active. We’re going to have to react with what happens with the power conferences. When they pull the trigger, we have to react because we’re not part of the trigger pulling.”


  359. Garret June 6, 2010 2:02 pm

    Utah State’s AD would love for the WAC and MWC to merge. I didn’t realize that Utah State’s AD played basketball for Fresno State.

    I don’t know if I would hope for the WAC and MWC to merge if I was Utah State…they are likely to be left out of that type of merger.

    “If there’s enough defection and movement, I’d love to see a WAC and Mountain West merger,” said Barnes, the former Fresno State basketball player. “Geographically, it would be much better than [the WAC] was with 16 teams.”


  360. Garret June 6, 2010 2:03 pm

    Idaho’s coach correctly says that money is driving most of this realignment talk.

    “The mighty dollar makes a lot of those decisions,” Idaho football coach Robb Akey said. “That’s what drives most of what happens. It’s going to be quite an impact. I’d just like to see the WAC survive and do it strongly.”

    Re: No. 52
    Troll, if you don’t have a paper and are reading online, look under the section called Other Sports. There you’ll find 20-plus stories of memories from the sports staff, including Ferd’s trip to Japan to witness Akebono becoming the first foreigner to earn the rank of yokozuna and ST’s recollections on getting slapped upside the head by Riley Wallace … funny, poignant stuff. And stop the digs at Ferd. This is not the day, time or place for that.


  364. G (China) June 6, 2010 2:48 pm

    Thank you ST and the Honolulu Advertiser. I remember one of my first jobs was being a paperboy and how difficult it was getting up so early in the morning. Looking back it made me think about how a couple of those times my dad was there to help me load newspapers in his car to deliver those papers on my route. I wasn’t very good as a deliverer but it helped me to be industrious. Thank you for the memories over the years Adveriser!


  365. Pomai June 6, 2010 2:57 pm

    Just back from a beautiful day at the beach supporting my grand daughter and her crew for a day of paddling. Hope the three amigo’s made it home safe last night, I left around mid-night, (J)J was almost down for the count, Koakane was in full swing along with Homey. As I sat in the back an watched, I have to say we have a diverse group in this Ohana and they all can put a smile on your face. I would also like to put in my thanks to ST and the Advertiser for bring this group of family together, amazing.


  366. Garret June 6, 2010 2:59 pm

    Guy in the office,

    I really enjoyed all of the articles that you referred to, it was great to read the memories from the sports staff. The article that Ferd wrote there is *exactly* the type of article that troll criticized Ferd for not writing…the fact is that Ferd did have that article published in today’s Advertiser in the appropriate section and troll just missed it and rushed to attack Ferd once again.

    Ferd had *2* articles in the Advertiser today and troll apparently missed one and criticized one of Ferd’s articles without noticing that the second article existed.


  367. Pomai June 6, 2010 3:02 pm

    Slugger I received an email from Nanci Coolen an she thought it would be a great idea if as many fans that could meet the team at the airport on their return, she said that the girls would really appreciate it, so I am asking all of the Tsaikos that can possibly make it down there to meet them please do. She also said she would give me the flight info when she got it, so I will pass it on as soon as I get it.


  368. Annoddah Dave June 6, 2010 3:02 pm

    ST & Tsaiko Blog Dogs,

    Mahalo for the KKall last night. It was fun. I ate too much, drank too much, and sang too much. Still it was too much fun. Looking forward to the next bash in August as a precursor to the FB season.

    Thanks to the HA staff for maintaining this blog. Hopefully, SA will do the same tomorrow. Thanks to the Tsaiko Blog Dogs for being so “lame”!!?? What a cool group!

    Do you think Carson, Sullivan or Hope devoted their last shows about outside entities, or was it more like a compilation of memories, acknowledgments and nostalgia that were innate to them and their audience?

    A newscaster signing off for the last time would be remiss if he failed to say a few words of gratitude. Right?

    Likewise with any sports columnists. He or they could have contoured his/their last column any way he/ they wanted to. .. Why then choose the story about the umpire is incompressible, especially when you consider there’s a flood of that story in the media as it.

    To me, his last column should have been more personable, maybe a reflection on his 36 years, and nostalgic. Not about some story that’s been told a thousand times. And one that certainly doesn’t fit a columnists last column. You would also think, as a columnists, you’d want to go out on a bang. Ferd didn’t IMO. Cataluna, on the other hand, did.

    Personally, though, I don’t care what you think.

    UCLA, a just above average home run hitting team, has, I believe, 22 home runs in the NCAA tournament (i could be wrong, but that’s what i thought the announcers said). That’s almost1/4th of their season total, against superior pitching too. What happened? Did they shave their bats? Or did they change their bats?

    Hi Everybody!

    Didn’t get to lurk until now. Expended a lot of energy reading the final edition of our beloved Honolulu Advertiser. Wiped away tears as I read emotional final articles by so many talented columnists/writers/editors/photo journalists.

    Best wishes to ALL…to those who have been fortunate enough to be retained for employment with the Star Advertiser…also to those not retained. Best of luck to you as you pursue new ventures. Heartfelt mahalo and aloha for your hard work and devotion to putting out an outstanding newspaper over the years that has entertained and enlightened all of us. Imua!

    Last evening’s KK was its usual best…so fun but LOUD! Trying to carry on a conversation above the noise level takes a whole lot of effort and is taxing on the vocal cords. Woke up this morning with symptoms of laryngitis. Mr. A-House is not complaining about my subdued conversations in a low and slow whisper…hmmmm. Was so worth it, though. Attacked the food line three times. At the end of the evening, another 50 people could have been fed easily. Mahalo for all the divine culinary contributions.

    email just received from Nanci Coolen:
    Hello pomai, we are on a charter bus at the moment riding through some beautiful oklahoma hills. Some of the girls (7 of them) have returned to their hometowns for the summer, but the other 13 players, 4 coaches, and 2 staff members, and a few others, are here and coming home tomorrow. We are driving to Tulsa right now on the bus, then spending the night in Tulsa and flying in on 3 different flights tomorrow (Monday) afternoon. We understand the media and perhaps a few fans may greet us so we are meeting up in the upper airport area as we all arrive and will come down to baggage together – as this team does everything – together. Kara – the SID has told the media to expect us around 3:00-3:30 pm near baggage claim
    G or H– 2 are on continental and one group is on American. Again, we thank you for all of your support – we are so proud to represent Hawaii. Thank you Pomai, and if I can be of any more help, please let me know. Aloha, Nanci


  389. Mrs. A-House June 6, 2010 4:11 pm

    Mr. & Mrs. Colomaohana –

    Conversing/laughing with you two was probably the main cause of my laryngitis. You two would make an awesome vaudeville comedy act. You both, along with Kekoa and Mrs. Kekoa probably came the farthest, and I want you to know how much I appreciate the time and effort the four of you took to join us on this special evening.

    Pomai –

    May I add my words to your earlier post in encouraging as many Tsaikos as possible to turn out at the airport to greet and finally be able to embrace this very, very special group of young ladies who represented our state and each and every one of their fans with courage, determination, and classy good sportsmanship. As Mr. A-House posted earlier, you have taken us on the ride of a lifetime to exciting new heights in College Women’s Softball. We’re hooked, as I’m sure so many, many others are also. Continued success to all the seniors, returning players, coaches and staff!!

    Pomai, please also ask Mrs. Coolen how many of the team/coaches will be returning as a group. Mr. A-House and I would like to greet/welcome them home with a small token of our love and appreciation.


  394. Mrs. A-House June 6, 2010 4:21 pm

  403. A-House June 6, 2010 4:36 pm

    Cindy C:

    The herbal shop I get stuff from is located in the Diamond Head side of Maunakea St between King St and Nam Fong – about mid-way – you need to walk between the 2 “outer” shops and the herbal shop is beyond that – can be seen from Maunakea St.

    Al & Mrs. Al –

    Can’t say enough about the best nishime I have ever had last evening. The enumerable ingredients that composed the dish were each so tasty and perfectly cooked…not too soft…not undercooked…just perfect. Al, when you walked into the room, Mr. A-House commented that that was a defining moment…the first time you had joined us at KK.

  407. Kazz ($310.00) June 6, 2010 4:45 pm

    I’ve been contemplating how I’m going to write something to express what this softball season was like through my eyes.

    And I decided not to say anything.

    Sometimes, the best things, memories, and thoughts are best left to the people that value them the most.

    Many people have said that the Wahine made Hawaii proud and they shouldn’t hang their heads. They DID make Hawaii proud and their best fans even “prouder” and they WON’T be hanging their heads.

    To me I say the Wahine and Coach Coolen deserve to boast the phrase, “I told you so”.. They won’t though and that says more in itself.

    Wafan –

    You are so sharp! I just corrected the name. But Mr. A-H also enjoyed the nishime, so the comments are appropriate (lucky for me). Also I guess neither Mr. or myself is the lucky winner. Oh well….


  411. al June 6, 2010 4:50 pm

    as bill cosby used to say, “growing up a a child…………”

    lineups!
    football lineups!
    get your football lineups!!

    yeah, that was me as a child. my first employer was the honolulu advertiser selling football lineup newspapers at the old honolulu stadium. 3 1/2 cents commission for every lineup newspaper we sold. on fridays, the lineups sold for 10 cents and on saturdays the smart buggahs at the advertiser incorporated the lineups with an early edition of the sunday paper and therefore charged 25 cents.

    the commission remained the same. if you picked the right spot on a good game you could sell 50 papers a night that’s a buck seventy plus tips. normally the tips exceeded the payout. then the advertiser guys would pull us through a pass through window if you could fit so we could go watch the game later.

    when I made the fifth grade I was able to work at my second job which was delivering the sunday advertiser. getting up at 4:30 am every sunday was chore in itself and our route was typically over a hundred homes. again the payout was below minimum wages of what was then 50 cents an hour, but, the generous folks who tipped well made it worth our while.

    gonna miss the honolulu advertiser, no doubt.


  412. wafan June 6, 2010 4:52 pm

    Just logged in at the HA. I just wanted to be a part of the closing — long distance anyhow.

    As one of our eminent Tsai-ko’s has said so many times in the past, so many memories in the past few years. And, yet, so many more to be made beginning tomorrow.

    Congratulations to the University of Hawaii Wahine Softball team! For the first time in school history, they’ve made it to the NCAA Women’s College World Series!

    As they won the Series opener in Oklahoma City yesterday – after defeating No. 1-ranked Alabama in the Super Regional finals on Sunday – one particular HGEA member watched with pride. Joycelyn “Jolly” Iwata (Unit 3, Department of Health) of Lihue, Kauai, is

    the mother of Jessica Iwata, who is the shortstop on the winning team.

    Jolly is a steward, delegate and active HGEA member. According to Kauai Island Division Chief Gerald Ako,

    Jessica has also been involved in many of HGEA’s activities since she was a “little girl,” including Relay for Life and Adopt-a-Highway events. … “

    I wonder if the servers at the new SA will be able to handle the hits when we get rolling. Crashing it would be interesting since I do not think they get anywhere near the hits on their combined blogs.

    Will Mr. Tsai have the “Power of the Button”? (You have to add your own echo effects.)

    Sure hope they are ready. Because, ready or not, we are coming!!!

    Da Punchbowl Kid #130: Howz it kind sir as I am here with you good folks for the FINAL time on this HA Warrior Beat !

    All I can say to you GREAT folks is one word “Thank You” as it has been a BLAST posting with ALL of you on Hawaii athletics, reading your intelligent thoughts of your PASSION for Hawaii to “WIN” and the most important thing for me since coming on this blog is “COMMUNICATING” my fondness and LOVE to all of you as I left you good folks back in 1981 as a Graduate Rainbow Warrior and I have been able since that time to represent you WONDERFUL people with “HONOR”, “DIGNITY” and “RESPECT” representing the “PROFESSION” as a “PROUD” scholarship student athlete graduate from the University of Hawaii !

    I wear ALOHA every day and am “VERY GRATEFUL” that I selected UH over a number of other Universities as their is “NO REGRETS” of wearing the green and white and playing in front of the GREATEST fans in the world in which ALL I ever wanted to do was to come back ONE day and GIVE BACK as you good folks have given me so much more with Mr. Stephen Tsai allowing me this blog to share my ALOHA to you as I am very grateful to his creation of the Warrior Beat !

    51 years of age and still playing athletics at a high level as I wear my aloha shorts / warrior shirt to battle “EVERY DAY” and then when finish put on the professional look and service disadvantage youths as a quality professional male educator for the past 17 years !

    Simply The Best, Better Then All The Rest !

    Take care Tsaiko Nation as we will hopefully post again on the other side as I always remain “Rainbow Cliff” FOREVER !

    Nothing wrong. The top two seeds, Alabama and Michigan didn’t even make it to the WCWS. Last years champion, Washington got bumped earlier. At this level with superior pitching and hitting, anything can happen. Nothing wrong with the Wahine’s. Next year. Bookem Gibbo!

    Shhhhhh — it is getting more difficult to find a venue large enough to handle all the karaoke Tsingers and party goers. 🙁

    But it did feel like a karaoke homecoming and reunion of sorts….and a fitting celebration for the Tsai-kos and Pink Side. Big mahalo to Stretch tor the setup arrangements.

    Thank you, Mrs. A-House, but not my invitation– it was jm2375 and I think whitey might be involved . 😆

    I just proposed the groundrule for determining the 900th, 1,000th, etc. posters in regards to SPAM that might get deleted (thereby altering the count later).

    Mr. Tsai, I worked as a coach at Magic Johnson 1st Annual Basketball Camp at Azusa Pacific College back in the Summer of 1982.

    An Awesome Camp with a lot of GREAT H.S. Players that played in it and stared later on at various colleges.

    Took picture with MJ and have it today in full color with hair on my head !

There’s a feeling of humanity that comes across in your writing, not just the play-by-play stats. A hui hou to the Advertiser staff.

    … from ESPN …

    Jun 68:19PM ETEmail Print Comments By Graham WatsonWe’re starting a new week in the countdown of the Top 25 non-AQ players heading into the 2010 season. For No. 21, we head to the WAC and one of the best receivers in the country.

    No. 21: Greg Salas, WR, Hawaii

    2009 numbers: Led the WAC in both receptions per game (8.15) and receiving yards per game (122.31) and ranked sixth and fourth nationally in those categories. He finished the year with 106 catches for 1,590 yards and eight touchdowns.

    Making the case for Salas: Salas didn’t get as much pub as he should have after a stellar 2009 campaign and that’s probably because of Hawaii’s run-and-shoot offense, but Salas is one of the best receivers in the country and will have yet another chance to prove it as he’s the Warriors main offensive target in 2010. Salas had five games with 147 or more yards and just five games with fewer than 100 yards. He did have some trouble when opponents, such as Wisconsin, keyed in on him. The Badgers held Salas to a season-low 31 yards. But Salas has the speed and hands to make something happen every time he touches the ball. If he can get some consistent quarterbacking, he’ll be tough to stop.

    I would have left much sooner but reading the blogs in the mornings left me thinking that your continued and unwavering support on the outside of the system deserved better from someone inside the system.

    Study found that parents who have books in their home increase the level of education their children will attain.

    Voters in Iceland are upset with their politicians over their country’s financial collapse, so they elected one of their top comedians the mayor of their capital and his political party (Best Party) won a near-majority of city council seats.

    As many as *3 million* Chinese babies are hidden from their parents every year in order to get around their country’s one-child policy. It is interesting that China recorded 23 million births in 1990, but in 2000 they had 26 million 10-year-olds! Considering how some kids die before they reach the age of 10, it is interesting how they had 3 million more 10-year-olds than all the children that were officially born.

    Extensive study found that heavy cell phone users had a 40% higher risk of glioma (the brain cancer that killed Sen. Ted Kennedy) and twice the risk of developing tumors on the same side of their heads where they normally held their phones while talking. The cell phone industry actually helped pay for this study and spun the results by saying that normal cell phone use is safe. However, they do not mention that “heavy” cell phone use was considered 30 minutes per day of cell phone use during the study period (2000 to 2004).

    Study found that eating processed meat (bacon, sausage or processed deli meats, etc.) was associated with 42% higher risk of heart disease and a 19% higher risk of type 2 diabetes. However, eating *unprocessed* red meat (beef, pork, lamb, etc.) did NOT increase the risk of heart disease or diabetes. So, the meat might not be the problem…it could be teh salt and nitrate preservatives in processed meats.

    Study found that postpartum depression affects just as many new fathers as mothers, with about 10% of fathers and mothers affected. The study found that fathers with postpartum depression are less likely than women to get help, partly because men tend to avoid mental health care and partly because women see their OBs frequently during pregnancy and again 6 weeks after delivery while men may go years without seeing a doctor.

    The latest year available for analysis shows that one-star municipal funds had an annual total return of 2.77%, compared with a *loss* of 0.98% among the five-star municipal funds…Morningstar’s director of mutual fund research says that it appears that the star ranking has *subtracted* value so far. Among all-stock funds, five-star funds performed basically the same as one-star funds.

    An estimated 45 million Americans *still* do not buckle their seat belt in their cars, with an average of 38 people not wearing seat belts dying every day in car crashes…half of those people (19 lives each day!) could be saved if they wore their seat belts.

    It is interesting that police dogs are trained by placing drugs inside toys and then playing fetch with them…the dogs then associate the smell of drugs with the toys. So, the dogs don’t think that they are looking for drugs…they think they are looking for toys! Police say that a dog can search a room in a minute where it would take a person 20 minutes to search by hand.

    About 30% of Americans think they have food allergies when just 5% actually have food allergies! The problem is the unreliability of the skin test used to test for allergies. An MIT engineer came up with a new technology that could let doctors diagnose food allergies via a simple blood test that would be faster and more reliable than current tests.

    It is a BAD sign for the future competitiveness of the US when professors notice that students have increasingly become less prepared for engineering over the years (note: I noticed this as an EE professor and I taught for less than a decade). Even worse, Washington State’s Universities only can supply less than half of the engineers needed by industry, with the supply problem only getting worse because the work force is about to have a BIG percentage retire in the next decade. Washington has 240 aeronautics students…Beihang Unversity in China has 26,000 aeronautical and astronautical engineering students!

    Cow poop might end up powering the Internet’s data centers! Study found that US dairy cows produce 54 billion pounds of manure each year, with each cow pooping more than 120 pounds of manure each day. Each cow generates 26 gallons of methane, with methane 21x more damaging to the environment than carbon dioxide. Instead of bulldozing the poop into holding ponds (those who drive down the 5 freeway can smell the result of that), farmers can sell their manure to a specialized biogas plant, with biogas powering servers.

    Five months *before* they started selling the 2002 Lexus ES, US engineers sent a test report to Toyota City in Japan about how it shifted gears so roughly that it was “not acceptable for production”! Toyota sold the Luxus anyway and sought to maximize profits by limiting the scope of repairs (NOT informing owners about the known problem, only providing fixes when a customer demanded them, even denying fixes to customers at first to see if they would give up). It is interesting to note that Toyota repeatedly tried to solve this sudden acceleration problem by modifying the car’s computer software, rolling out software updates to cars brought in for the sudden acceleration problem…and NOT telling Lexus owners about the software update that could possibly fix their car.

    Genetic discoveries from a shrub called the burning bush could lead to healthier vegetable oil *and* a direct-use biofuel for many diesel engines that can fuel the tractors that harvest the crops for the new vegetable oil. Efficient tractor fuel and healthier vegetable oil with the same discovery…an interesting combination to me.

    The worldwide elimination of smallpox might have helped to spread HIV infection! The smallpox vaccine offered protection against HIV, but once people stopped getting the vaccine HIV began its spread. The smallpox vaccine appeared to cut HIV replication five-fold and researchers believe vaccination may offer protection against HIV by producing long-term alterations in the immune system, especially since both smallpox and HIV exploit the same receptor on the surface of white blood cells.

    Some states have more parking spaces than cars, where parking lots lead to hotter cities, less ground water and less healthy streams. Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin have nearly 3 parking spaces for every car, using almost 5% of urban land for parking even when you do not count street parking and parking structures.

    Who all is going to be there so I can call you as I leave Kaiser to make sure that the gang is still there. Please send me your cell phone to swood at hoku.com

    4.5 *trillion* cigarette butts find their way into the environment each year and are so toxic that they can kill fish. Chinese researchers found a way to use extracts from cigarette butts to protect steel pipes from rusting. China is the world’s largest smoking nation (300 million smokers) and it consumes 1/3 of the world’s cigarettes, with 60% of China’s men smoking an average of 15 cigarettes per day.

    Study in the US and Canada found that on average 2-year-olds watched just under 9 hours of TV per week and 4-year-olds watched just under 15 hours per week. Every hour beyond the average that toddlers watched made them, by 4th grade, 7% less engaged in class, 6% worse at math, and 10% more likely to be bullied. They also snacked more, exercised less, and higher ratios of body fat. Forget about how bad exceeding the average is, I’m really disturbed at hour high those averages are!

  581. Kazz ($310.00) June 6, 2010 7:58 pm

    Knowing this blog and ST will continue beyond this particular server and onto the Star Advertiser, it makes it hard for me say a “goodbye” or a “thank you”.

    Over the past few months, since the news was announced, I think we’ve all expressed our feelings as to what this blog community that Stephen Tsai created has meant to all of us.

    Through it we’ve learned the human side of UH athletics, from the players, to the administration, the coaches, training staff, and everyone in between, if that’s possible.

    The key to this blog, the Warrior Beat Show, the blog parties and gatherings (t-gates) is INTERACTION. Through this blog, I personally, have been “closer” to UH personel and athletes than I could have ever imagined. In essence, it has made a fan’s experience that much better.

    My FAVORITE moment that came to fruition through this blog was the process that was the fundraising for the 2007 WAC bracelets for the Wahine softball team. It truly was a team effort.

    Had ST not mentioned that the booster club wasn’t as well funded as football, the Wahine that season would have left UH without something nice to remember that accomplishment by. Then the brainstorming began between various bloggers, with Pomai ultimately taking the lead with the help of A-House, Stretch, A-Joe, and the endless list of donors that are too much to mention.

    When the night came, on October 10th, 2008 to attend the Wahine volleyball match to witness the softball program getting their recognition for the previous season’s accomplishments, it was amazing.

    They were on the court and we all were giving a standing ovation in our seats in the upper level. The team spotted us and waved and that was cool in itself. As the match resumed after intermission I spotted the softball team making their way up to our section and I remember turning to Jason and said “oh crap… they’re coming up here”… We were not expecting that at all.

    In short, it was a humbling experience. To see and shake hands with the student athletes that represented UH and Hawaii on a national stage and to hear them express their gratitude was equivalent to someone “seeing the light”. In recent memory, I have never felt more of a sense of purpose in that I was a part of something that was worthwhile doing.

    From that moment I quietly told myself I’d support this program to it’s maximum emotionally and financially (without going broke 😆 ).

    I know it’s just a game, but I saw the bigger picture that night and it’s not. Not to me at least and I honestly believe that my life has been more “useful” since that event and… this blog started it all.

    On this blog, outsiders can become “insiders” and can have a positive effect on the student athletes we cheer on from our seats.

    In my perspective, this blog is embarking on a new chapter with new management, but with the same faces, and hopefully new ones. In the same time, for me, I find it almost fitting that this new journey of the Warrior Beat Blog will begin as we look to support the very same program that started this sense of accomplishment and “duty” as the Wahine softball team wraps up it’s most successful season in the history of the program.

    More things will be accomplished, friendships will continue to strengthen, and more friendships will be made.

    The idea of the blog was always the same, we’re all UH fans. Football, basketball, volleyball, baseball, softball, it’s all the same to those of us that “see the light”. The names may change, or may not, the purpose and the heart behind it will never go away.

    Many have come here, or at least a TINY handful claiming to be “many” trying to embarass or bring people down claiming we cannot see anything outside our “rose colored glasses”, but we’ve carried on, not caring what others think and not caring what others that are all talk think.

    We here proceed with intent, purpose, and fan unity and anyone that wants to join along for a few laughs and to talk UH sports is more than welcome.

    In reorganizing my things today, I still have that signed postcard from Coach Coolen, Coach Wisneski, and then-assistant coach Kristi Yoshizawa.

    It’s one of the FEW items I felt like keeping that were autographed from UH athletics.

    I don’t seek out autographs much. It’s not my thing. The monetary value is not an issue, the meaning behind it means more. Only my signed Colt Brennan helmet, my volleyballs signed by Coach Shoji and the 2009 team, and this postcard from the softball coaches are things that I want to keep around for the stories and memories behind them.

    No prize for 500 — that was commonly reached daily in the old days of the blog…that’s why I didn’t start tracking milestone numbers until 900. 🙂

    BTW, are you offering some prize for the 1,203rd poster? Bread pudding, maybe? 🙄

    Thanks Garret! And thanks Brew! You guys give the WB character like no other.


  604. Slugger June 6, 2010 8:14 pm

    Pomai,

    I just watched the UH Athletic site’s video on “Traveling with the Bows at the WCWS” and you’re right! That lady who looks like Ku’ulei is Kanani’s Mom! So the picture I have from 2008 could be Kanani’s Mom, too.


  605. bb June 6, 2010 8:15 pm

    bummer…no UH sports for a few months and hunch is telling me that football season could be brutal


  606. Kazz ($310.00) June 6, 2010 8:15 pm

    JM,

    You don’t know what college students do in their spare time??? 😯

    Well… nevermind, family blog yeah?


  607. jm2375 June 6, 2010 8:16 pm

    There was soooooooo much fuuuud last night, enough to feed 3x as many as those who showed up.


  608. Slugger June 6, 2010 8:17 pm

    Oooo, in the Maryknoll graduating class, there’s a 6’7″ guy who I was told was going to play for UH as an outside hitter. Hope so!


  609. BG June 6, 2010 8:17 pm

    A functional robotic butterfly!!! Won’t be long before they’ll become surveillance devices..or maybe a bird in the sky. Sorry, that old military reflex kicks in from time to time.

    Reminds me…PB…hope all is well with you and your family.


  610. jm2375 June 6, 2010 8:17 pm

    Bread pudding pan was taken off the counter around 8:15. Thought it was gone. When I got it down to take the pan home, there was one piece left. Wonder if anyone was hiding that last piece. A-joe? He claimed innocence.


  611. troll June 6, 2010 8:18 pm

    It would be a nice gesture if the HA didn’t wipe the slate clean come 12 am.

    They could lock out, close the door, to incoming posts. And reporting the news. But why not let the readers, and public, savor some extra time in reading the posts and the last articles.

    An additional day, or two, wouldn’t be a hardship, would it?

    An extension of goodwill people remember.

    I’m reposting Pomai’s post. Unfortunately, I cannot make, so let’s get as much people out there to welcome back our Rainbow Wahine.

    WELCOME THE RAINBOW WAHINE SOFTBALL TEAM BACK!!!

    ARRIVAL TIME APPROX 3-3:30 PM HONOLULU INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

    BAGGAGE CLAIM G OR H

    THREE GROUPS OF PLAYERS. 2 GROUPS ON A CONTINENTAL FLIGHT AND ONE GROUP ON AN AMERICAN FLIGHT.

  615. jm2375 June 6, 2010 8:22 pm

    One day I will meet brew in person….


  616. BG June 6, 2010 8:25 pm

    Seems like many have already said their goodbyes. But, I’d really like the story on the blog’s infancy. Could ask one of the original Tsaikos at the next cc, but I’m sure there are many more out there who are interested too.

    Gotta get some homework done, but I’ll check back in around 10.

    And, ST, despite the onerous times and painful emotions right now, many, many thanks come your way for the clubhouse you’ve built. Mahalo!

    Thanks too, for all the HA folks who worked like a great team to stamp the name Honolulu Advertiser in Hawaii’s history. May that other door open for all of you…soon.

    In this morning’s paper, they listed the HS Hall of Honor members. One of them is Daniel Mafua (1987). Is that Dani’s dad?


  619. BG June 6, 2010 8:26 pm

    Can’t forget…congrats 808ike!!! You deserved to win that book…

    Didn’t wanna miss this day to post. Thank you, ST, for bringing us all together. It’s been a wonderful ride.

    Let me add one more to the count.


  624. jm2375 June 6, 2010 8:32 pm

    other Tsai-kos I have not yet met IRL: most of the Mainland/International Tsai-kos (except wafan & Ronnie), the Maui Tsai-kos – whitey & duffer, madeinhawaii, Jack Flash.


  625. papajoe2 June 6, 2010 8:33 pm

    #622, yes that is Dani’s dad. on look at both of them and you could tell immediately.


  626. jm2375 June 6, 2010 8:33 pm

    SteveM – brew needs a Tsai-ko name tag. 😀


  627. madeinhawaii June 6, 2010 8:33 pm

    Garret,

    One of your off topic stories led to this one about a self-contained unit that produces Oxygen, Hydrogen fuel cells, and 20K gallon of fresh water daily … I can see something like this on our Islands to deal with drought.

    papajoe – I wasn’t living in Hawaii in ’87, so I missed all of that. Nice to meet you last night.


  630. TYaiea June 6, 2010 8:35 pm

    Kazz or anyone, is there a fundraiser for the wahine softballers? glad to be part of it…


  631. addahknowjoe June 6, 2010 8:37 pm

    Slugger– yup! He’s going to be given a chance to try and walk on. =)

    jm2375– brew is one handsome braddah in person. Pictures no do him justice.


  632. papajoe2 June 6, 2010 8:38 pm

    we already have fake butterflies that can fly. they’re disguised as little planes. they call them drones.


  633. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc June 6, 2010 8:40 pm

    The next time there’s a potluck, why not consider calling Second harest to come pick up the leftovers. They will deliver the food to homeless shelters, senior programs, child care facilities, etc.


  634. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc June 6, 2010 8:41 pm

    DrDoc and I are preparing a summer barbecue – probably hamburgers & beef ribs from Whole Foods with all the fixings- on Satirday. June 19, for the Family Promise program. If you’d like to come spend an hour or so talking story plus shooting some hoops and playing games with kids, mark your calendars now. Will post additional information in the next universe.


  635. papajoe2 June 6, 2010 8:42 pm

    jmxxx, what was in ’87? nah, it was definitely my pleasure to meet you and all of the other Tsaikos. i had a good time.

    BG — you would have to ask one of the original Tsai-kos at Blog party 1 and read the blog posts on both ST’s and Cat’s blog the following day.

    I have this documented in my Tsai-ko Scrapbook (the first pix) at:
    http://homepage.mac.com/smurashi/photos/scrapbook.html

    Note the Link to Cat’s blog for Blog Party 2 still works. The Tsai-kos raiding her blog the following morning set the tone for the future, I think.

  641. whitey June 6, 2010 8:45 pm

    climbing mountains is hard work, but if you work at climbing the smaller ones first, the next one may not be as hard. On the horizon is mountain 700 which appears to be climable, so one step at a time.


  642. SteveM June 6, 2010 8:46 pm

    Will I be allowed to bring something other than bread pudding for future events?


  645. whitey June 6, 2010 8:48 pm

    and voila, just like that 700 appears to be closer, but not as steep.

    One toast, and cheers, for Colt Brennan and the 2007 Warrior team.

    It was all because of you guys that I joined a sport’s blog in following the magical season.

    For my other half it was the happiest days of her life to see me happy at the end of a Warrior win…and to see me posting.

    Some of my post I wrote she laughed so hard. I miss her laugh.

    As I will this blog. But I hope that the new one will be a continuation.


  648. jm2375 June 6, 2010 8:49 pm

  649. whitey June 6, 2010 8:50 pm

    taking time to smell the flowers and reminicing about the past years on ST’s blog is truly priceless.


  650. Kazz ($310.00) June 6, 2010 8:51 pm

    TYaiea,

    Please tune into the Star-Advertiser’s version of this blog. Currently, we need to hear the word from Coach Coolen on what needs to be done for the WAC bracelets this season.

    Also, we contacted Coach Coolen about a Wahine banquet or something to celebrate this season. Will have to be in the fall as some of the players have dispersed for the summer.

    As far as an actual fundraising event, we can look into starting something anually for the Wahine with Koa Anuenue.

    For now, I encourage ANYONE to go to www. koaanuenue.org to donate any amount they wish via online transaction on a one time or monthly basis. I do this on a monthly basis and it’s safe and easy.

    OR

    Mail a check to:

    UH FOUNDATION
    PO BOX 11270
    HONOLULU, HI 96828

    MAKE CHECK PAYABLE TO: “UH FOUNDATION”
    ***IN THE MEMO LINE YOU MUST WRITE DOWN:
    WAHINE SOFTBALL ACCOUNT***

    (All donations are 100% tax deductable and the funds donated to the softball account are for Coach Coolen’s use for whatever his program needs.)


  651. HNL June 6, 2010 8:51 pm

    Thank you ST. Been lurking off and on for 3 or 4 years, you guys been great. will miss the best newspaper in hawaii

    This blog is housed on the Gannett/HA server, I’m pretty sure. So, when the Star-Advertiser takes over, they do not have the use of the Gannett assets. Therefore, it’ll be gone….’Auwe!

  668. d1島 June 6, 2010 9:00 pm

    …perhaps if The Former Coach would contemplate returning and resigning again in the next hour or so it would help drive the comment count higher and faster?


  669. whitey June 6, 2010 9:00 pm

    SteveM, the past mountains we climbed together brings back many memories, but what stands out is how the tsaikos moved forward without complaining, but complimenting each other with each step.


  670. jm2375 June 6, 2010 9:00 pm

    no problem tomorrow…will be up bright and early to secure a parking pass anyway….

    ….not to mention checking out Da New Blog!


  692. BleedGreen808 June 6, 2010 9:07 pm

    Just when I said “the internet is slow” it somehow got faster. Perhaps this is a sign to break the record.


  693. papajoe2 June 6, 2010 9:08 pm

    earlier i posted about the Na Wahine underclassmen. since i have an early golf t-time tomorrow and have to cut my blogging short, i would now like to address the senior class of the University of Hawaii Na Wahine Softball team. Seniors, you led you team, state, and yes, even most of the United States softball fans on a journey that simply was remarkable. As you go out into the world you will find many ups and downs. not everything in life will be as rewarding as being a member of this team. you must remember that you are a champion. you worked very hard to achieve what you did. nobody gave you anything. take those lessons with you wherever you go and you will be a champion in your life, your families’ life, your neighbors lives and lives of the people of this world. if things are not looking up, think about all the adversity that you overcame, one step at a time. whether lifting weights, running, taking fielding practice, batting practice or whatever, you are a champion! you earned it by working hard and studying too. go out into this world and become a champion in life. you gave the softball world thrills and most of us are still on a “high.” congratulations on all your accomplishments and accomplishments to come for YOU ARE A WAC CHAMPION, REGIONAL CHAMPION, SUPER REGIONAL CHAMPION, AND A COLLEGE WORLD SERIES PARTICIPANT!! ALOHA AND MAHALO NUI LOA for taking us on a ride that just will not stop. Good luck in you future endeavors, champions!!!


  694. Slugger June 6, 2010 9:08 pm

    W-Doc,

    I’d rather take some leftover potluck food to the people in the park. They don’t go to food kitchens, none in this area that I know of. these are local kine folks who no mo home. Second Harvest takes food to the Food Bank and they usually take harvested produce, unless HI does something different.


  695. duffer June 6, 2010 9:08 pm

    other Tsai-kos I have not yet met IRL: most of the Mainland/International Tsai-kos (except wafan & Ronnie), the Maui Tsai-kos – whitey & duffer, madeinhawaii, Jack Flash.

  702. BleedGreen808 June 6, 2010 9:12 pm

    shouldn’t take 6 hours to go between islands unless some sort of delay. Was that the schedule your cousin had?


  703. Slugger June 6, 2010 9:12 pm

    Hi, BleedGreen808,

    I like Shanghai, too. Been thru there twice. Been to the museum twice.

    But my fave city in China is Hangzhou by West Lake. Pretty laid back.


  704. BleedGreen808 June 6, 2010 9:13 pm

    Good night whitey!


  705. BleedGreen808 June 6, 2010 9:14 pm

    I will see you on the other side, troll.


  706. Slugger June 6, 2010 9:15 pm

    I think taking our leftover tailgate food to the people in the Old Stadium Park is pretty ironic. They are sleeping where we used to watch football, and baseball.


  707. duffer June 6, 2010 9:17 pm

    d1,

    Yep me and the kid too! Gotta settle on a time. Will be in touch with whitey.


  708. Guy in the office June 6, 2010 9:18 pm

    Eh, Stephen,
    Just got back from the Hall of Honor dinner; we missed you… again. It’s such a great event. To see the kinds of student-athletes our state produces each year makes you feel certain our future’s in good hands. Gib was entertaining and charismatic; it’s no wonder he won over the selection committee. He did say he was “not invited” to the banquet his senior year at Punahou. Funny.
    Well, best of luck tomorrow on Day 1; carry on The Advertiser name.


  709. Slugger June 6, 2010 9:18 pm

    Garret,

    I’m glad you gave us the link to your posts. I don’t have time to read all of the ones you put up tonight.


  710. troll June 6, 2010 9:20 pm

    i got to call it night. it’s been a nice run. To the ones we leave behind I pay my respects. good night.


  711. BleedGreen808 June 6, 2010 9:20 pm

    Slugger,

    Visited the the museum in Shanghai also. It is indeed an artwork. What’s funny was that there were high school students roaming around asking Americans to take a survey of their english papers. Did I mention that I was flagged almost half of the time. If they only knew that I am an average or below average writer. 😆


  712. jm2375 June 6, 2010 9:21 pm

    BG808 – I don’t remember. It was several years ago. Cousin is from Honokaa side and was working at Seabury Hall at the time. I do remember that he had to come through Honolulu.

    The St Louis Cardinals are Coach Wallace’s favorite MLB team. Go figure!


  714. SteveM June 6, 2010 9:22 pm

    Hi BleedGreen808.

    jm2375 — brew808 has a Tsai-ko name tag…and a Tsai-ko black polo…and a Tsai-ko stein…and a Tsai-ko coffee cup. Probably a bunch of other stuff too…and deservedly so. 🙂 He is the Bay Area Tsai-ko Chapter President.

    Second Harvest takes non-perishables to the Food Bank, but party leftovers and food that cannot be sold the second day at restaurants are picked up and delivered to a wide range of non-profits – not just homeless shelters.

    There are several churches which regularly serve meals to the homeless in various parks – I work with two of the congregations here in Windward O`ahu. The Second Harvest donations such as desserts and salads have made a major difference in our being able to serve decent main dishes rather than just bean-y starch-y casseroles.

    That’s why when we cook for the Family Promise program eight times a year we offer the same type of food that we would serve guests in our home.


  716. Slugger June 6, 2010 9:25 pm

    Still a lot of comments needed…


  717. BleedGreen808 June 6, 2010 9:25 pm

    Slugger–

    Also, we almost went to Hangzhou but we didn’t want to spend our last day touring. We did go to Suzhou (water village) and we were on a boat and I had yelled to the other boats “hello, my fellow americans” and they yelled back and said “we are europeans” oooopppsss. btw, they gave the stink eye also.


  718. papajoe2 June 6, 2010 9:25 pm

    we can make it. just got to get a hold of Ralph. i gotta go pretty soon too.


  719. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc June 6, 2010 9:26 pm

    BG808,

  721. madeinhawaii June 6, 2010 9:28 pm

    papajoe2,

    It would be shocking for someone to take 6 hours to travel inter-island nowadays unless it is planned or some sort of mechanical problems. There are flights that go direct between islands now.


  723. jm2375 June 6, 2010 9:29 pm

    where’s rasu begasu? we are in severe need of some of his jokes.


  724. jm2375 June 6, 2010 9:30 pm

  725. duffer June 6, 2010 9:30 pm

    I miss LTUHF!!!!


  726. Addahknowsports© June 6, 2010 9:30 pm

    Good evening Tsaikoland!

    Thank you for the great time at the KK last night! It felt like a reunion and I guess I really missed everyone more than I thought I did.

    Papajoe2 – it was very nice meeting you. Hope we see you at future T-(e)vents. [the e is silent]. Lumpia was da bomb. I hope the few extra that I ate didn’t deprive anyone.

    Esme – somehow I still didn’t get to meet your husband at the KK.

    Mrs. Breadpudding – at 7:00 your dessert was half gone. That in itself is an indication. And I think someone is not fessing up. I’m pretty sure A-joe did not take the last piece. Bwahahaha. Btw….no worries, brew already has a name tag.

    Change is inevitable. The Tsaiko bond that developed and the memories that we share to today was something that I never expected to come of that first meeting of bloggers. I’ve really enjoyed the moments that we’ve had here.

    I’ve also grown up with the Advertiser as my dad has been subscribing since I could remember. I had a subscription in college. And today I picked up my last paper from the mailbox.

    ST – I love your chili pepper moments story. Thank you for that and much more.


  727. madeinhawaii June 6, 2010 9:31 pm

    Don’t forget, Jim Donovan will be on SH forum between 10 and 11 am for Q&As tomorrow… if you got questions regarding the Softball or Baseball post season tributes.. that might be a good time as any to ask.


  728. Slugger June 6, 2010 9:31 pm

    papajoe2,

    I think you should copy & paste your address to the seniors on the softball team and email the comments to Coach Bob. Everything here will disappear, except for what SteveM has saved. I’m sure the Coach will share your sentiment w/ the team.


  729. BleedGreen808 June 6, 2010 9:32 pm

    Slugger–

    Do you speak chinese? I am thinking of learning via Rosetta Stone. I took 2 years of high school japanese and 2 years of college japanese but my schooling somewhat failed me in japan as I couldn’t remember most of my japanese vocabulary. I can still read hiragana and katakana fairly well, though.


  730. SteveM June 6, 2010 9:32 pm

    So, who’s going to be the 900th poster tonight?

    They will join Jason, Stretch, and 99club for that distinction.


  731. BleedGreen808 June 6, 2010 9:33 pm

    BTW, congratulations to 808ike!


  732. d1島 June 6, 2010 9:33 pm

    I was just looking for a way to get to Sam Boyd Stadium for the ’07 UNLV game and came upon a few strangers posting comments on the beat writer’s blog…

    Who would have known that what would develop is life-changing friendships and memories with people here and afar?

    Mahalo to you Stephen for what you have created here. No one knows what tomorrow brings whether it’s the new site address of the new blog, or who will end up there but one thing is for certain; all the special people who have been attracted to this wonderful community will still be around and I am glad to be associated with all of them.

    After all, we are….

    Tsaikos!


  733. jm2375 June 6, 2010 9:33 pm

  737. jm2375 June 6, 2010 9:37 pm

    Speaking of the KKall,

    I was very happy to see everyone again last night. It was a blast as usual and it was nice to see that everyone was very happy with the special guest I brought along with me. I figure there were some people that kind of knew who I was bringing but it was just good to see the old peeps again. I hope that I am able to see everybody again in August.


  777. duffer June 6, 2010 9:57 pm

    Not to mention the numerous Tsaikos I met at the t-gate, blog party at the SSC, and the Beast’s graduation party at Ala Moana.

    For the last 10 years, the Honolulu Advertiser website was the first thing I would see when I opened my internet browser. The Advertiser website was the first place that I turned to for news from home no matter where in the world I was stationed. I’m going to miss the Advertiser and need to find a new browser homepage in a couple of hours.


  781. duffer June 6, 2010 9:59 pm

    Thank you Stephen Tsai……………..

    Who’s hand I shook after he came out of the men’s restroom!

    Thought we would have had WarriorMojo make a showing last night 😕


  784. PowderPuff June 6, 2010 9:59 pm

    What’s up, Tsaikos! That was a GREAT get-together last night – even the impromptu dancing. 🙂 Thank you, ST and Esme, for bringing it all together. And thank you, ST…for without you, we wouldn’t have this circle of friends: the Tsaikos. It’s been great.

    As a youngster, I aspired to be a newspaper journalist, and tried to emulate the fine work by the professionals at The Honolulu Advertiser. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the history of journalism in Hawaii.


  785. papajoe2 June 6, 2010 9:59 pm

    f we get cut off of this blog when we not finished, or i i going hiamoe,i want to thank the Tsaikos for welcoming me to the “family.’ i always loved sports. i remember after i graduated form high school, we went to Aiea Gym to watch some former college players from UH and abroad in some kind summer league game. wow, big beef. the local team had some professional football players. we had good seats for the action, but was scared because bodies was flying all over the place. this fight made the news both on TV and the papers. rematch had extra secruity and real plenty people but nothing happened. if something like this happened in this day and age, garrens the blog would be in the millions.

    Duffer #778,

    I was nice to sit amongst such great U.H. fans that day called the T-saiko’s. It was actually the first time I had actually watch a football game with a section full of T-saiko’s. Even though we did not come up with the win, the time spent with you guy’s was a great experience.

    Study found that as little as 5 minutes of “green” exercise (activity in the presence of nature) improves both self-esteem and mood to people of all ages.

    I have to dig up video clip of Momo and A-House trying out the exercise bike at the Tgate before football game

  860. Matt June 6, 2010 10:26 pm

    I found the Warrior Beat blog while deployed to the Middle East in 2006. Initially, it was a way just to keep up with the Warrior football team. Soon, I was addicted. I would check for updates on the blog whenever I could get an internet connection. I couldn’t wait to see what ST was going to write about next. Over the years I have posted very infrequently, but have read the blog almost daily. Here’s hoping the new blog is similar in format and voice to this one. Thank you again ST.


  861. jm2375 June 6, 2010 10:26 pm

  872. BleedGreen808 June 6, 2010 10:28 pm

    I thought I knew you from somewhere. I saw your photo on SteveM’s website and you looked familiar. I was once a student of hers when I attended LCC. If my memory serves me correct, you played the bass while the whole class played “stuck on you” by Lionel Richie. I still remember how to play the song till this day.

    I don’t know if you remember me but we met once and I showed you my ukulele which I built myself from scrap woods in high school.

    Hope she’s doing ok. Tell her one of her old student said “hi”.


  873. kama krab June 6, 2010 10:29 pm

    Matt #867,

    But you know where to find me.

    I dunno how welcome I’ll be to post on the new blog. I might have to go by a screen name. But I am pretty sure the longtime Tsaikos will know me by a new screen name I’ve been considering …

    … whoosh … !


  886. Matt June 6, 2010 10:32 pm

    Oh, before the “marketing” yesterday, got to meet Johnny White and Benjy Taylor! They were playing in the group in front. That was exciting – maybe that’s why I played well through 17.

    BleedGreen808 #876,

    Yah that was probably me. Ho what a small world. I can’t say I remember to much people from back then, even though was only a couple years ago. Was that song performed at a performance in front of the cafeteria or at the restaurant.

    Well anyway, mom is doing good and still teaching. She’s actually in Vegas right now enjoying herself with one of my Aunties.

    Do you still live on Oahu cause if you do why don’t you stop by the school and say hi and maybe join one of our Saturday classes.


  914. jm2375 June 6, 2010 10:39 pm

  930. Jason June 6, 2010 10:44 pm

    Hi folks! No more grading papers for me, that was all done by our last day, 05/27. And I had a great time on my vacation, lots of walking but lots of good food. I’ll have to post pictures online soon.

    Wonder how SteveM is doing saving these posts?

    In Safari, once a page is fully loaded, you may Save as a “web archive” or “page source”.

    The web archive downloads the photos too (and the pestiferous ads). The page source will only link to the photos…no work if the server is down/gone. There are 3rd party programs to do the same thing. Note chawan_cut suggested saving or “printing” to .pdf format. Haven’t tried that yet.


  938. d1島 June 6, 2010 10:46 pm

    Did you get together with rasu?

  941. BG June 6, 2010 10:47 pm

    Saw this on Liz’s blog…talking about Aaron Habermann. We learn more about Liz and her extraordinary-ness all the time!

    He’s been making ceramics for 17 years and recently branched into the paintings. His prices range from $150 to $650 for pottery works and $650 to $5,000 for paintings.
    Born on Kaua’i in 1970 and a graduate of Waimea High, Habermann was a star swimmer with the KIF whose breaststroke record still stands 22 years later. He lived “all over the island” growing up with his parents – artist Glenn Habermann, who now lives in Oregon, and Liz Hahn, who used to run the Gallery at Waiohai.

  946. d1島 June 6, 2010 10:48 pm

    1203 would be the new record….

    Is that the goal?

    BleedGreen808 #933,

    Ah that’s o.k. Hopefully one day soon you can feel the vibe again and pick up that uke. When you do get that feeling, you know where to find us especially if plan on staying in the island’s this time around. Would be nice to have a jam session with you and some other T-saiko’s when time permits.


  953. sjmacro June 6, 2010 10:51 pm

    Thanks Stephen, for everything.

    Thanks Honolulu Advertiser for everything, for nurturing this wonderful dream called the Warrior Beat.

    Being a poster here has brought me many things and taught me many things.

    Thanks to all the posters here who have enriched my life so abundantly these last few years.

    Thank you to the new Star Advertiser for having the wisdom to keep this dream alive.

    See you on the other side, everybody.

    Al, brother, can you get the lights on the way out…?

In The Advertiser system, the sports copy editors also were …. And perhaps it had a lot to do, as I have learned later, that my father’s childhood days were also filled with being a newspaper boy, delivering in the St . Louis Heights area and at the old stadium. I remember that day . …This Blog […]

  1325. kama krab June 6, 2010 11:41 pm

    To all the people still going,

    Keep it going and make memories. Memories that will last forever.


  1326. Jason June 6, 2010 11:41 pm

    So Friday afternoon, after baking in the sun, I started seeing people around Las Vegas that looked like friends and family, and that made me realize how much I missed home. And now posting here tonight, I realize how much I missed the (people on the) blog, too. I stopped by every so often, but the Wi-Fi at Circus Circus was terribly hit-or-miss, so I didn’t get to go online much. Sometimes it took 10 minutes to try and access a restaurant’s online menu, since the connection would disconnect and I’d have to try and re-connect over and over.


  1327. Matt June 6, 2010 11:41 pm

    J,

    If I’m in San Diego that day, I think so. I may be out of town.


  1328. BG June 6, 2010 11:41 pm

    Up this late? This is the first.


  1332. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc June 6, 2010 11:42 pm

    I LOVE bread pudding – I like all desserts because they don’t have liver, squash or avocados in them. Ask me sometime to tell you the story about the special dinner made just for me.


  1333. Darren June 6, 2010 11:42 pm

    Thanks stephen and the rest of the HA staff…it’s been a great ride.


  1334. Matt June 6, 2010 11:42 pm
