    Congratulations to all lovers…

  5. Ipu Man March 25, 2012 7:51 am

    btw, did Bulla survive his Mexican cruise?

  6. Ipu Man March 25, 2012 7:52 am

    I ask that as tsai’s pic shows a happy lady in a beeeeg hat…

  7. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2012 7:52 am

    I wonder what happened to the birthday sombrero they used to have at Compadres?

  8. madeinhawaii March 25, 2012 7:55 am

    What a happy looking couple. Congratulations to them both!

  9. d1shima March 25, 2012 8:01 am

    Great Morning All!

    Wow! Congratulations to Leila and Doug…long live the Queen!

  10. Da Punchbowl Kid March 25, 2012 8:03 am

    Seems like only yesterday Leila was a beautiful and talented up and coming Wonder Woman. Wait – she still is!

    Think I’m gonna cry.

    Congrats to the newlyweds!!!

  11. BigHiloFan2 March 25, 2012 8:07 am

    Congrats to the beautiful couple.

    Soccer moms beware!!!

  13. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2012 8:14 am

    By the way softball fans, that’s Kristin Anderson on the far left of the group picture.

  14. SteveM March 25, 2012 8:17 am

    Good morning everyone!

    Congratulations to Princess Leila and Doug!!!

  15. mo808 March 25, 2012 8:26 am

  17. LizKauai (iPad) March 25, 2012 8:41 am

    Blessings and congratulations to the beautiful couple!

  18. LizKauai (iPad) March 25, 2012 8:42 am

    Here’s to the mother of the bride too!

  19. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2012 8:46 am

    Yep, cheers to Faye Wai.

  20. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2012 8:53 am

    Kristin used to be the Rainbow Wahine’s centerfielder. She played softball at UH when Leila was on the soccer team.

  21. papajoe2 March 25, 2012 8:56 am

    Congratluations Leila and Doug. So……..where’s the honeymoon?

  22. papajoe2 March 25, 2012 9:04 am

    Looking at the pix of Sharla in the SA, it would be nice if they can see the bat hit the ball. I know because of the speed of the ball its hard to do, but maybe it would cut down on the strikeouts. She did get a single on that one, but I’m not just talking about her, I meant the whole team.

  23. gmahoney March 25, 2012 9:17 am

    PP, just glad the girls have broken out of their slump. Hitting is contagious. So is winning. Nice interview with KM after the game, she is a leader and has stepped up as an upperclassman to encourage and rally her teammates.

  24. 3-Prong March 25, 2012 9:20 am

    ST: what is the status of Falyn Fonoimoana?

    Congrats newlyweds.

  25. jm2375 March 25, 2012 9:32 am

    Good morning Tsaikos!

    Congratulations to the Princess and her Prince! May they live “happily ever after”.

  26. A-House March 25, 2012 9:42 am

    Best Wishes to Leila, congrats to Doug, and happy days for Faye!

  27. Slugger March 25, 2012 9:53 am

    Congratulations, Leila and Doug! Double happiness! Congrats to Mom Faye!

    Morning, gang!

  28. koakane ip4 March 25, 2012 9:58 am

  29. Loa March 25, 2012 10:00 am

    morning gang!

    congrats to Leila & Doug!

    hmmm…come to think of it, Leila was the first Tsaiko i met … and then she helped me locate the mysterious homey 🙂

  30. Loa March 25, 2012 10:03 am

  31. wafan March 25, 2012 10:06 am

  32. wafan March 25, 2012 10:07 am

    Congratulations to Princess Leila and Doug maybe soon to be made Earl of something or other.

  33. SteveM March 25, 2012 10:08 am

    RE: my #28

    Related to my comment last night about the Warrior Beat regulars still lurking today… Faye is the Queen of the WB lurkers too.

  34. wafan March 25, 2012 10:10 am

    There were two royals at recent weddings . . . Queen Faye in Hawai’i and on some other island old lady whatever-her-name-is in England.

  35. mctruck March 25, 2012 10:11 am

    DANG!!!!, I wuz lookin forward to marrying the Princess when I wuz old enough!?, oh well, congrats to the Princess,Leila and Doug. May you live happily-ever-after.

  36. Kekoa March 25, 2012 10:15 am

    So the ringing in my ear was from the wedding bells. Whew…dats one I can cross off my “am I hearing things” list.

    Best wishes to you and your betrothed Doug. Don’t make us Tsaiko’s hunt you down if you disappoint our Princess! 👿

  37. Kekoa March 25, 2012 10:21 am

    Congratulations to the Queen Mum. May you have many little soccer munchkins to herd to and from the playing fields very soon.

  38. duffer March 25, 2012 10:45 am

  44. SteveM March 25, 2012 1:41 pm

    Happy Birthday kyeton !!!

    I’ve lost track…are you now of legal age to own Stretch at the golf course? 😉

    Kyeton is duffer’s “kid”.

  46. Da Punchbowl Kid March 25, 2012 2:10 pm

    Happy Birthday to the kid! (not me!)

  47. d1shima March 25, 2012 2:24 pm

    Happy Birthday izzy and Kyeton!

  48. Pauoa Boy March 25, 2012 2:32 pm

    Congrats to Princess Leila, what a pretty bride. Bruddah Doug is one lucky guy for sure…blessings to you both!

  49. Bulla March 25, 2012 2:49 pm

    #5 Ipuman

    i survived, but WOW LAULAU what a way to go…..the suite we had was 1,150 sf with (2) 50″ TV’s, jacuzzi tub/shower, kitchen, king sized bed……unreeeeaaaallllll…..the only way to go 🙂

  50. Steve March 25, 2012 3:05 pm

    3-prong (#24) – Falyn is no longer attending UH, also, she is no longer in Hawaii. You can forget about her. The only sighting you might see of her, is on the Pro-Beach circuit.

  51. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2012 3:16 pm

    I think I saw her at UH three days ago.

  52. d1shima March 25, 2012 3:20 pm


  53. jm2375 March 25, 2012 3:27 pm

    Happy Birthday to Izzy & Kyeton!

    Bulla – I’m soooo jealous. Now you spoiled, anything less will be such a letdown… Betcha had a great time.

  54. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2012 3:31 pm


    Glad you had a great time.

  55. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2012 3:32 pm

    And happy birthday to Izzy.

  56. Steve March 25, 2012 3:42 pm

    ST, that was not her. I got my info from someone very, very close to Dave Shoji. And he would know about her whereabouts. Being that he monitored her on a daily basis, during the Fall Semester.

  57. wafan March 25, 2012 3:46 pm

    Tsigh . . .

  58. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2012 3:49 pm

    It was her. I know what she looks like. My source is me. Tell me your source and I’ll double check to confirm.

  59. Steve March 25, 2012 3:56 pm

    ST, I just emailed you my source.

  60. Steve March 25, 2012 3:59 pm

    ST, my source told me that last Sunday.

  61. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2012 3:59 pm

    Who’s your source?

  62. Steve March 25, 2012 4:01 pm

    ST, I just emailed you my source. Check your email,

  63. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2012 4:08 pm

    He must not be looking very hard because that was her on the lower campus last week.

  64. Steve March 25, 2012 4:11 pm

    ST, I am just passing on what he told me. Plus, some other things.

  65. Wes'side Warrior March 25, 2012 4:14 pm

    Congratulations and best wishes to Princess Leila and Doug Skywalker! Oh… wrong show. Well, may da force be wit you, always & forever!

    Das what happens when da kids singing Star Wars music in da house.

    Howzit, everyone! Weird winter just slid into caked-on pollen on everything outside! Looks like beauty school dropouts playing with facial foundation outside… like how we used to have to dust out the chalkboard erasers for da cute teachers! This stuff is so thick, you can’t see the original color of many vehicles on da road! Wish it would rain and wash this stuff away!

    Eh, how come nobody told me about this nasty pollen out here in Georgia? Sneaky buggahs!

  66. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2012 4:20 pm

    Don’t know about her eligibility. All I know is I’ve seen her around, most recently this past week.

  67. SteveM March 25, 2012 4:21 pm

    Sheesh, Bulla, I told you take a larger ship next time…





    jm2375… should I laugh or cry here….? 😕

  68. Liz Kauai (macbook) March 25, 2012 4:21 pm

    WW- wear a mask. Save yourself from the pollen. Really.

  69. Liz Kauai (macbook) March 25, 2012 4:22 pm

    Hi ST… I believe you.

  70. wafan March 25, 2012 4:23 pm

    WW . . .

    Remember to clean your air filters, too.

  71. Liz Kauai (macbook) March 25, 2012 4:23 pm

    Happy Birthday, IZZY!

  72. wafan March 25, 2012 4:23 pm


    Is that really you?!?!

  73. wafan March 25, 2012 4:24 pm


    What is the bounty?

  74. wafan March 25, 2012 4:24 pm


    What is the bounty?

  75. wafan March 25, 2012 4:24 pm


    What is the bounty?

  76. wafan March 25, 2012 4:25 pm


  77. papajoe2 March 25, 2012 4:27 pm

    Hahahaha. He not giving up. Always gotta be right. Zzzzaaappppppp.

  78. papajoe2 March 25, 2012 4:28 pm

    Happy Birthday Izzzy!

  79. papajoe2 March 25, 2012 4:29 pm

    Sorry, inside joke. bwhahahaha

  80. al March 25, 2012 4:40 pm

    congrats to the princess bride and doug!!!

    they could make a movie out of it.

  81. al March 25, 2012 4:41 pm

    and look at faye wai beaming from ear to ear as a proud mama should be.

  82. al March 25, 2012 4:42 pm

    and i asked cindy luis a week or two ago and she too said that ff is taking classes and will do so in the summer to get eligible by fall. she said that he was in hawaii.

  83. al March 25, 2012 4:42 pm

    maybe falyn left this weekend on spring break as did most of the other students.

  84. al March 25, 2012 4:43 pm

    happy birthday to izzy and the kid.

  85. BG March 25, 2012 4:43 pm


    I know what you’re talking about (watching the ball hit the bat), but I think I saw that it was proven to be impossible (see ball hit bat)…not 100% sure, tho’. In any case, keeping your eye on the ball seems to be the right thing to do…even in golf and that sucka doesn’t move!

  86. jm2375 March 25, 2012 4:43 pm

    SteveM – we can only dream…

  87. BG March 25, 2012 4:45 pm

    Congratulations Leia and Doug! I think this means that the princess becomes a queen and Faye becomes Queen Mother. Whatevah…it still means it’s royalty all around!

  88. papajoe2 March 25, 2012 4:46 pm

    BG that’s my problem with my golf game. I keep seeing the ball move. Anyway I think and hope that the Wahine got their grove and goin WACK’UM.

  89. wafan March 25, 2012 4:51 pm

    Dang, M/M Bulla’s vacation suite was nearly as large as my hovel is.

    Royal digs for royalty, I guess.

  90. papajoe2 March 25, 2012 5:04 pm

    When I was in Little League, I could actually see the bat hit the ball. Too bad I wasn’t batting though. When I got to Pony League, it was, ball? What ball?

  91. Darren March 25, 2012 6:21 pm

    Congrats to Leila and Doug!! First thing I thought when I met Leila, wow…she’s pretty tall. Doug must be really tall.

  92. d1shima March 25, 2012 6:22 pm



    Did everyone pass the eye exam?

  93. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2012 6:29 pm


    He’s maybe 6-2, or so. He played baseball at Yale.

  94. Steve March 25, 2012 6:34 pm

    al, Cindy Luis has never spoken with Falyn, since Falyn arrived in Hawaii, she is just speculating.

  95. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2012 6:37 pm

    How would you know who Cindy does or doesn’t speak with?

  96. Steve March 25, 2012 6:50 pm

    ST, all I am saying is, Cindy has mentioned repeatedly, on her blog, that she has never spoken with Falyn.

  97. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2012 7:00 pm

    It seems there is contradictory information between you and Cindy. Why would yours have more validity than Cindy’s, especially since she covers them regularly?

    This isn’t to be accusatory. You stated several things earlier. The only thing I knew for sure is the player has been in Hawaii because I see her a lot, the last time being this past week.

    For the other matters, which seem rather important, maybe you need to share that with Cindy.

  98. Steve March 25, 2012 7:07 pm

    ST, not only me, she has stated as much to all the other bloggers, on her blog. As for the other matters, I have shared them with Cindy, and she is looking into it.

    ST, again, I believe that you have seen Falyn, I just mentioned what I have been told. I am not here to say, you do not know what you are seeing. Peace.

  99. Steve March 25, 2012 7:10 pm

    ST, I hope what I have been told, by my contact, is incorrect. Cause I truly would love to see Falyn, in a Wahine Volleyball uniform.

  100. Steve March 25, 2012 7:17 pm

    Again, for those of you that follow Wahine Softball, their game between New Mexico St., on Friday, can be seen on ESPNU, at 4:00pm. It will be shown on a delayed basis, since the game begins at 2:00pm, mountain time. Please do not delete this, ST. It is info for your Tsaikos, and everyone else.

  101. Stephen Tsai March 25, 2012 7:17 pm


  102. Steve March 25, 2012 7:21 pm

    If I remember, I will remind everyone again, on Thursday, and Friday morning, about ESPNU, televising the Wahine Softball match against NMSU.

  103. So Good March 25, 2012 7:26 pm

    Love the spring practice reports.

    When we spot Stephen, should we post an update? Too embarrassed to say hello but Staphen, I consider you a celebrity lol. Spotted u at the funeral yesterday and thought “omg, Stephen tsai is here!”.

    Sorry cant post as much or read this as much as I’d like too but the reporting is still as great as ever.

  104. d1shima March 25, 2012 7:27 pm

    6:00 pm MDT = 2:00 pm HT

  105. d1shima March 25, 2012 7:28 pm

    Spotted u at the funeral yesterday and thought “omg, Stephen tsai is here!”.


  106. Steve March 25, 2012 7:29 pm

    d1shima, sorry, you are correct. I made the adjustment in time zone, in my post.

  107. Steve March 25, 2012 7:32 pm

    Hey, I should trust ST more, since he lives at the UHAD more then anyone else. More then even Coach Chow, and his assistant coaches, put together.

  108. d1shima March 25, 2012 7:43 pm

    No Prob….I wouldn’t want you giving out misinformation.

  109. Bulla March 25, 2012 7:56 pm

    well it seems like a slow night, so i shall digress if i may. i have gone on my first and most likely last cruise, because i was so very spoiled. you’re right, anything less and i’ll want my money back. it was simply divine and for those of you on FB, both lyn and i posted photos 🙂

    Warriors, great practices ahead, and nothing short of rewriting the book of football as you know it. what a joy to have a practice that has been microscopically orchestrated by the HC; that is D1 football, time wasted is money lost…it’s a business plain and simple. imagine the memories you can make in crossing the threshold to victory, IMUA LANAKILA



  110. Steve March 25, 2012 8:01 pm

    The one very important question I did not read, or hear, a SA or TV, reporter ask the new Wahine Basketball Coach. Will she allow Adolpho to play volleyball? Since Adolpho is on a basketball scholarship. When I say SA reporter, I not mean, ST, I am talking about his 2 colleagues, that have columns in the SA.

  111. Steve March 25, 2012 8:04 pm

    Watching the Western Kentucky vs Wahine basketball match 2000, on K5. Showed ST sitting with his daughter. Did not realize, ST likes watching women’s basketball.

  112. Slugger March 25, 2012 8:05 pm

    Happy birthday, izzy & the kid!

  113. 3-Prong March 25, 2012 8:46 pm

    ST & Steve,

    Thank fou for the info. I will be watching the blog for any updates. Shoji needs a Terminator for those critical game determining point. The girls we have are good but you need that type of player to be considered an elite team. Charlie is finding that out this year without his. Please keep us updated. Thank you.

  114. 3-Prong March 25, 2012 8:57 pm

    Al: Thank you too.

  115. LizKauai (iPad) March 25, 2012 10:20 pm

    Yes, wafan, it was me.

    Nitey nite all!

  116. whitey March 25, 2012 11:49 pm

    computer was very slow, but before midnight, want to wish Happy Birthday to Kyeton.

  117. slenzi March 26, 2012 1:33 am

    Thank God its Monday morning now and back to Warrior football.

  118. wafan March 26, 2012 2:46 am

  122. d1shima March 26, 2012 5:41 am

    Nice read this morning.

    It’s becoming clear what made Coach Tommy Lee a good choice for this staff as the transition from RnS to multi-Pro set continues.

  123. WarriorNY March 26, 2012 6:31 am
