The world according to AARP

The beauty of old age — and I just received my AARP card — is diminished panic.

It would be easy to believe there is a sense of hopelessness as the basketball Rainbow Warriors and volleyball Warriors continue their losing streaks. But sports is about second chances, and regardless of how both teams do this weekend, their league’s postseason tournaments offer renewed optimism. Odd as it may seem, both teams still are in contention for national titles.

Maybe both teams conjure miracles runs to extend their seasons. Probably not. But the formats offer each a chance.

* * * * *

It makes sense for the Warriors to return to Honolulu between back-to-back road games. Not only did the Warriors lose the back end of back-to-back games each of the past three years after remaining on the mainland, they missed 19 school days.

What is interesting is UH’s new approach to traveling. The Warriors will practice Thursday morning, then travel to the West Coast, where they will stay overnight. On Friday, they will travel to the site of the game. Former UH coach Bob Wagner used the same approach for parts of his tenure.

    Good Morning! Happy Gils Day!

  2. BleedGreen808 March 3, 2012 2:38 am

    Yes, you’re never out until you’re out.

    Hope both teams can make a run in the post season.

    Good luck to all the student athletes!

    Hmmm. I wonder if you can order chicken during the early-bird period.

    There was water dripping onto a plastic box outside. It was like Chinese water torture. I had to move the box and then, I figured, if I’m up, I might as well post a blog item. Yeah, yeah, yeah. It’s not a compelling topic. But I’m already in pro-day mode.

  13. mo808 March 3, 2012 2:47 am

    Got to walk dogs now, have a good day all!

  14. Stephen Tsai March 3, 2012 2:48 am

    Hey, you’d better check on the guy. Make sure it’s not apnea.

  15. BleedGreen808 March 3, 2012 2:51 am

    It’s not apnea. He just likes to sing while he’s asleep.

  16. mo808 March 3, 2012 2:57 am

    ST, I know it’s apnea but he’s stubborn, I’ll keep bugging him though.

  24. Garret March 3, 2012 4:27 am

    I like that travel schedule for the team. Just getting to the West Coast on Thursday will avoid long connection waits at the airport and make the travel day not too bad. The flight on Friday should be short and shouldn’t disrupt the preparation plans.

    Best case would be for UH to have charter flights, like UH will be paying for the MWC teams that come to Hawaii. However, for a budget-constrained situation, this is probably the next best option for UH.

  25. Garret March 3, 2012 4:28 am

    Article about UH seeking $12.5 mil to upgrade its Athletics facilities:

    “It’s a wish list,” Derek Inouchi, UH athletics spokesman said.

    The money for the work would be in addition to the department’s annual $30 million budget, Inouchi added.

    A new football and coaches’ locker room and training center is one of the costliest items on the list at an estimated $2.5 million. The department is also requesting $4 million for various athletics capital improvement projects. And another $1 million would be used for renovating the training room used by all of university’s student athletes.

    “We have good facilities, but some haven’t had upgrades since the early 1980s,” Donovan told PBN during a recent interview.

    The football locker room hasn’t been upgraded in more than 10 years, he said.

  26. 99club March 3, 2012 4:36 am

    Good morning Garret…

    #24, not to mention a day of West Coast per diem which the players may appreciate. 🙂 Carpe per diem.

    gotta serve legal papers, meet Girl in Phillippines. 😀 thinking of you today. 😆

    nope, Uncle Robert Keliihoomalu. gentle giant with 9 kids. Puna one son. I went with 4 other sons across the Molokai channel a decade ago. They taught me how to catch lobster in da net; make one sardine can wit coupla holes, hang da can in da middle ah da net = choke lobsters buss up da net. Puna was the singer. He and his sister Princess and ohana would play the uke and charm the tourists at the end of the road. beautiful falsetto. Pele took everything after their houses, last ones standing on da beach road. All da tourists go their house, get one big stage in the front yard. Uncle Robert and sister Aunty G girl are old family friends.

    no more parking, everybody parking in all da neighbors yards and down down down street.

    auwe auwe auwe.

  29. BigHiloFan2 March 3, 2012 4:51 am


    read the PBN post. read Derek’s comment “It’s a wish list.” also read where Jodi Leong going to UH from KITV weekend anchor starting March 15. going make strategy for UH communications.

    top job is Jodi to teach Derek how to say “The list includes needed improvements for the Athletic Dept and demonstrates our (UH) commitment to assist Coach Norm Chow lead the Warriors and advance our commitment to be recognized as a national football power, and our Athletic program as a source of pride for our State.”

    wish list? pfffttt….

  30. A-joe March 3, 2012 4:52 am


    I stay in your back yard for the weekend. Attending my good good good childhood friend’s services.

  34. ai-eee-soos March 3, 2012 5:29 am

    ” … The Warriors will practice Thursday morning, then travel to the West Coast, where they will stay overnight. On Friday, they will travel to the site of the game. … ”

    1. Oct 6 @ San Diego State – no further travel needed.

    2. Nov 3 @ Fresno – a bus ride from LAX, SFO, or San Jose.

    While travelling to these 2 sites is not too demanding, it’s getting over the tiredness,

    after the previous week’s long trips to BYU (sept 29) and Colo State (Oct 27), is what

    the Warriors must overcome – The Warriors WILL prevail.

    Go WARRIORS !!!

  35. BigHiloFan2 March 3, 2012 5:32 am

    Many tell me AARP is a rip off that most places like hotels,car rentals even some restaurants give you the same or better discounts if you’re a senior.At many places 55 is considered a senior it use to be 65.

    My relatives tell me that car insurance through AARP is the biggest rip off.Even the Kamaaina rate is the same or better than the AARP rate at some Waikiki hotels I’m told.


  37. BigHiloFan2 March 3, 2012 5:40 am


    not to worry about da Warrior mind.

    Coach Chow is on it!

    I wish wish wish Coach Chow spends skoshi time inspiring da comm dept. wish list sounds like a Herm term. time to figure out what you gotta have in terms of maximizing da PR, get da big bruddaz in da Leg to key in on what we gotta have, make da PR speakz, tellem we anticipating dis passing, and da planning gonna happen dis year, yada yada, and zappo.

    Interesting JD would say the facilities are good. Good compared to what? Why a wish list. Should be a minimal expectations list. Kinda get what you pay for . . .

    Good, better, best never let it rest until the good is better and the better is best.

    “Some haven’t been upgraded since the 1980’s”….

    YEAH… NO S***!!!!!!

    While one stadium across the way is soon to get a NEW FACADE, after NEW EVERYTHING ELSE, the other one across the street with a team gets something NECESSARY as new lighting DELAYED AND DELAYED AND DELAYED.

    Dim lighting = safety hazard. Malfunctioning lighting = cancelled practices. EFFECTS outcome.

    Ummmm….. TITLE IX????

  54. Kevin March 3, 2012 7:36 am

    Also… when a donated “addition” to an existing facility that the university wants NO RESPONSIBILITY for and never wanted to pay for and DIDN’T pay for is then manipulated by some so they can claim that same addition is an “addition” after all to try to cover their ass for Title IX compliance, well, goes to show where the dedication is huh?

    But hey! Go buy your football season tickets now!!!!

  55. Kevin March 3, 2012 7:39 am

    If anyone young enough doesn’t have kids yet and is trying, try your hardest to have boys. At least this way if they decide to play sports, they still get all the good stuff.

    If you do have a girl and she wants to play sports, might want to send her to another school other than UH then. At least she and her sport of choice on the mainland might get the attention they deserve or at least the minimum without the SHIBAI.

    Enjoying the morning sitting in bed with Betty after cooking her a bit of breakfast. Girls’ Day is special for me as it’s both Betty’s and Hina’s birthdays.

    Yesterday was a little rough for Betty but if she’s feeling better today, I may be able to make the softball game in the afternoon. Need to sign up for dollars for singers and Kash for K’s.

    No better way to start the morning than with the Tsaiko ohana. Wonderful to see bhf2 back on board as well as the expats. Make it a great day!

    Let’s put this facility wish list in perspective: Ching field was funded for $10 million years ago of which $5m was donated by its namesake– and we are still waiting.

    The Wahine softball field was built during the Cayetano regime and we are still waiting for the light poles to be extended to a height where fly balls wont disappear into the Manoa night (kinda like placing a lamp on the floor while reading at desk level).

    You know what happened when they built the coaches offices….

    Donovan’s wish list?

    It wouldnt make Ferd Lewis’s end of the year Saint Nick’s list.

    If you want to inspire development for our athletic program, drop the “wish” in your list.

    Totally agree with pj2 at #86. Margaret Mead has often been quoted, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed people can change the world, indeed it is the only thing that ever has.” Kevin, your work with Na Wahine is a perfect example. You, Pomai, and the numerous Tsaikos have made a world of difference for the young ladies. Tsaikos have made a difference in many areas. Believe. The winner is the person who manages to get up one more time than life has knocked him/her down. Aloha

    Mahalo… I’ve seen the shop..I shop at the Palama Store there when coming back from Sam’s Club or the Home Depot. haven’t gone into KCAS since they moved there. Will check them out since I have to go to Pearl City tomorrow or the day after.

  100. madeinhawaii March 3, 2012 1:13 pm

    oops.. KCS.. not KCAS…

  101. jm2375 March 3, 2012 1:24 pm

    mih – then you can stop at Chun Wah Kam and pick up manapua to take home and then go have shave ice at Baldwin’s!

  102. tom mui March 3, 2012 1:31 pm

    #103 madeinhawaii. I like the ox-tail soup over at a Vietnamese place over at the Market City.

    Its owners are Chinese. Forgot the name but it is more or less next to the Fun Factory there.

  103. d1shima March 3, 2012 1:36 pm

    Listening to BaseBows. 4-0, Good Guys after 4. 🙂

    Can hear lots of “conversation” in the background. 😆

  104. tom mui March 3, 2012 1:38 pm

    madeinhawaii: My wife says its called Pho Kitchen. She also says that the fast food Chinese place next to Fun Factory makes (arguably) the best cha-siu in town – lots of Chinese pop in there claiming it’s better than anything in Chinatown.

  105. madeinhawaii March 3, 2012 1:59 pm

    Thanks Tom,

    That’s by Foodland, if I recall correctly, just before Kapahulu Ave where King, Kapiolani, and Waialae get confused.

  106. d1shima March 3, 2012 2:49 pm

    BaseB 🙂 ows!

  107. tom mui March 3, 2012 2:52 pm

    madeinhawaii#112 – that’s the place (Kapiolani side) but it’s on the other end from Foodland (Harding Ave?) side.

    Of course there will be people that might mention Likelike Drive Inn – which I thought was OK but my late father-in-law always went there for oxtail soup.

  108. Kapahulu March 3, 2012 3:29 pm

    UH won the first game against Riverside 5 to 0 with three homers.

    UH leads Florida State in the bottom of the 3rd inning 1 to 0 on a Padaguan homer over the center field fence.

  154. wafan March 3, 2012 7:10 pm

    whitey . . . slick! The animated sign was of Whimpy (sp?) eating hamburgers. Used to like waiting at that stop light watching the animation.

    Okay, yeah. Simple minded and easily entertained . . .

  155. RedZone March 3, 2012 7:11 pm

    whitey I heard it on the radio but forgot the score. it was a low score.

    crunchy, crunchy, crunchy

  173. whitey March 3, 2012 8:41 pm

    Go Bows, you can do it!!!!!

    no look back, go Bows!!!!

  177. whitey March 3, 2012 8:44 pm

    don’t know what happened to vander.

  178. whitey March 3, 2012 8:45 pm

    free throws misses are hurting the bows.

  179. whitey March 3, 2012 8:46 pm

    but not getting rebounds is hurting worse.

  180. whitey March 3, 2012 8:47 pm

    josten is playing to win. Go Bows!!!

  181. whitey March 3, 2012 8:49 pm

    unreal how the bows lose!!!!

  182. kapakahi March 3, 2012 8:52 pm

    Ticky tack fouls called by refs all night long….EXCEPT at the end at of the game when ref swallows his whistle after Payne bumps Miah to the floor.

  183. whitey March 3, 2012 8:54 pm

    rebounding was killas tonight for the bows. down the stretch (stretch not refering to you), they just no could do it.

  184. whitey March 3, 2012 8:56 pm

    kapakahi, no can say anything about officiating cause i no mo tv, so was totally dependent on live stats on computer. computer no mo emotion and he just give me facts. hahahaha

  185. whitey March 3, 2012 8:58 pm

    if only looking at stats, the rainbows played very even with the squaws except for the rebounding. so i assume get potentio!!!!

  186. oldtimer808 March 3, 2012 9:17 pm

    We should have made our free throws but the officiating was very questionable at the end with a possible offensive foul and then the possible foul on Miah but there should have been a call on Payne for traveling. We should have gotten the ball back with 2 seconds left but the officials were lost out there at the end.

  187. oldtimer808 March 3, 2012 9:19 pm

    But it is what it is and we have the WAC tournament where everyone essentially start anew. GO WARRIORS!!

  188. AlaWai March 3, 2012 9:21 pm

    Bad loss! Gib should have used a TO to set up a play. Congrats to Seniors Miah and Zane.

    Thanks for being Warriors and Leaders.

  189. whitey March 3, 2012 9:32 pm

    I wonda if they goin spend time on free throw shooting prior to the playoffs.

  190. whitey March 3, 2012 9:34 pm

    yes, thank you Miah and Zane for your play with the Rainbow Warriors. Mahalo.

  191. whitey March 3, 2012 9:42 pm

    tomorrow get the rainbow basebows and softbows. hip, hip, yeah!!!!!

  192. Steve March 3, 2012 10:23 pm

    What a crowd at the Wahine Softball games, first standing room only crowd of the season, even thru the rain during their 1st game.

  193. Issac Maez March 3, 2012 10:27 pm

    Hello just thought i would tell you something.. This is twice now i’ve landed on your blog in the last 3 weeks hunting for totally unrelated things. Spooky or what?

  194. BigHiloFan2 March 3, 2012 10:29 pm

    all i gotta say is….

    no… No… NO…. No…. NO…. NOOO!!!

    I no believe…. I no believe….

  195. BigHiloFan2 March 3, 2012 10:32 pm

    Da men’s bb team. i thought i was putting them on a bed of roses… but i found myself on a bed of nails. Bon Jovi neva sounded so junk.

  196. BigHiloFan2 March 3, 2012 10:33 pm

    maybe if i go sleep and wake up, da scenery gonna look betta.

  197. Pollard, Marsha O. March 3, 2012 10:34 pm

    I and my pals came viewing the great helpful tips on the blog and so then came up with an awful feeling I never expressed respect to the blog owner for those secrets. These people had been for this reason glad to study all of them and have seriously been making the most of those things. Thanks for getting quite considerate and for obtaining variety of notable ideas most people are really desperate to learn about. My sincere regret for not expressing gratitude to earlier.

  198. Steve March 3, 2012 10:39 pm

    OcSports needs to rethink their television schedule of Wahine Softball games. Right now they are scheduled to television the FSU game on Tuesday, Texas A & M, Texas, California, and the Fresno St. doubleheader. That is just 6 games they are going to televise. Much to little for this extraodinary Wahine Softball team. Coolen has put together a team that has it all pitching, hitting, power, speed, and defense. Right now, OcSports is looking at televising men’s volleyball instead of Wahine Softball. How can that be, Men’s Volleyball is going nowhere.

  199. whitey March 3, 2012 10:39 pm

    bhf2, know your weekend is busy, but wen you goin to the philippines??

  200. whitey March 3, 2012 10:43 pm

    kevin and pomai, you guys run out of fuud tonight game???

  201. Steve March 3, 2012 10:51 pm

    Coolen and JD need to start lobbying for a new 2K seat stadium, somewhat like what the Basebows have, but just a smaller version. The Wahine Softball program can become a money making program, with a new playing facility. This Softball program reminds me of the Basebows, back in the late 70’s and early 80’s, which got the Basebows their new stadium.

  202. Steve March 3, 2012 10:53 pm

    Whitey, I believe they did. Saw Coolen running over to Les Murakami Stadium after their 1st game. Probably hoping the concessions there had left over food.

  203. Steve March 3, 2012 10:56 pm

    Whitey, Kevin would make a good offensive pulling guard. Saw him a few times running interference for another Tsaiko, so that person could take pictures of the crowd and players, on the field.

  204. whitey March 3, 2012 11:02 pm

    Steve, did he have his game face on??

  205. Steve March 3, 2012 11:03 pm

    The biggest difference between the World Series team and the current team, is that this team does not have to rely on the home run to score runs. The current team can manufacture runs, and shows they have that killer instinct.

  206. whitey March 3, 2012 11:04 pm

    Steve, tomorrow goin be same, so they goin stock up their fuud and if the weather is guud, they goin clean up the kala.

  207. Steve March 3, 2012 11:06 pm

    whitey, Kevin certainly did have his game face on. You know that look, if you are in my way, I am pancaking you.

  208. whitey March 3, 2012 11:06 pm

    acutally the rainbow softbows were lucky that kevin and pomai joined the boosters and became officials of the boosters. those guys put their heart and soul into making sure the rainbow wahines are taken care of.

  209. whitey March 3, 2012 11:08 pm

    kevin, you relaxing with the green bottle now?? Good job you all did today.

  210. Steve March 3, 2012 11:08 pm

    Whitey, that is so true. Hopefully, Pomai and Kevin, are doing the same at their tent.

  211. Steve March 3, 2012 11:10 pm

    Hopefully, Pomai and Kevin, are getting a good night’s sleep, cause it will be more of the same tomorrow.

  212. whitey March 3, 2012 11:12 pm

    wonda if we can make 220 before ST puts up his new post after the bewitching hour.

  213. whitey March 3, 2012 11:13 pm

    bhf2, where you when we need you.

  214. whitey March 3, 2012 11:15 pm

    sometime in the past, if memory still good, tried doing the same-o thing, but this one is easier.

  215. Steve March 3, 2012 11:17 pm

    Does ST go to Wahine Softball games, do not believe I have ever saw him there. If he does not, he is missing out.

  216. whitey March 3, 2012 11:17 pm

    know the blog clock is slow, but real clock says it is getting close to high night. guess that’s why the pingers getting tired and brain starting to fall asleep.

  217. whitey March 3, 2012 11:20 pm

    wonda if get vampires outside. i know when i go to the darkside, the vampires start flying in around sundown, but lately they come during daylight. they must be taking some kind of special drink.

  218. Steve March 3, 2012 11:20 pm

    Coach Gib should make it mandatory that all his basketball players attend tomorrows softball games so they have an idea of what it takes to win games. The Wahine Softball players can teach them a thing or two. Just a thought.

  219. Steve March 3, 2012 11:23 pm

    Whitey, no vampires outside, just me. Hey, reached 220.

  220. whitey March 3, 2012 11:24 pm

    sheesh, even the computa stay slow down. and i thought the bugga no had feelings.
