Leila's back!

May 29th, 2008

Yep, here's a shot of Leila's back. (The Princess returned today.)


* * *

Inoke Funaki strikes a pose.


* * *

UH's version of the Quarterback Challenge started with handshake greetings yesterday afternoon.
"It's good," Inoke Funaki said of the arrival of JC transfers Greg Alexander and Brent Rausch. "There's strength in numbers."
Funaki and Tyler Graunke exited spring practice as the co-No. 1 quarterbacks. Coach Greg McMackin promised to open the competition in training camp, with a starter expected to be named at least a week before the season opener against Florida.
The open competition was " a big factor in me wanting to come here," Alexander said.
Alexander was recruited after Rausch gave UH his verbal commitment. "There's going to be competition everywhere you go," Rausch said. "I don't mind it."
Rausch said he received a late recruiting push from Southern Methodist, where June Jones and four assistants relocated.
"They gave me a call the day before I signed here," Rausch said. "I didn't even call them back."
Rausch said he chose UH because of "the offense. The people out here are really nice. It's paradise."
Alexander said he has been a fan of the Warriors' four-wide offense.
"I watched them sling it around (on TV)," he said.
Funaki, who led the unsupervised workouts yesterday, was impressed with the newcomer quarterbacks.
"They have something you can't teach: height," Funaki said. Raush is listed at 6 feet 4 and 190 pounds, and Alexander is listed at 6-5 and 240.
"When I first saw him, I wanted to know: Who's the d-end?" Funaki said of Alexander. Quarterback coach Nick Rolovich "said, 'This is Greg. A quarterback.' He's a big boy."
Rausch and Alexander kept busy working out with their JC teams this past spring.
"I was lifting and throwing," Rausch said.
Alexander said: "I would lift three days a week, run three days a week."

* * *

Quarterback Shane Austin, who has recovered from a fracture in his right foot, and receivers Joe Avery and Royce Pollard worked out yesterday morning.
The three roommates are living on the North Shore this summer.
"They have to drive in every day," Funaki said, smiling.
Funaki should know. He was raised on the North Shore, and used to make the same drive for two years. He now shares a place with teammates in Manoa.

Linebackers Adam Leonard and Solomon Elimimian will represent UH at the WAC Football Media Preview in Salt Lake City July 22-24.

Bob Coolen said he expects to award the 2007 WAC championship bracelets during a women's volleyball match this fall. He said everyone from that team except Justine Smethurst (who is pitching for Australia's Olympic team) will be in town. Coolen said he wants the donors to be thanked in a visible setting, which is why he will not distribute the bracelets during the summer. He wanted to distribute them during the WAC Tournament, but UH was eliminated in the semifinals. As we all know, Pomai spearheaded the fundraising drive for the bracelets. Big mahalo to Pomai and the other donors.


That's our Pomai on the left. And that's our RainbowCliff on the right. I swear RainbowCliff can dribble a basketball with his hand in a shaka sign.

Here's a pix of our super sales person Kortney, the groom and their daughter. They're expecting their second child in September. How much of a sports fan is Kortney? The honeymoon in Vegas included tickets to the UFC card.

    Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays they should be out on the field, at about 3 p.m.

  13. James:

    Steve M. - No. I meant 6'0" 230. That was my playing weight. I'm now down to 204...or so.....

  14. Stephen Tsai:

    I thought Garret's post was interesting: the sun has earth-sized tornadoes that we can view with our equipment.
    I thought one of the basic rules was not to stare at the sun.

  15. Stephen Tsai:

    My picture didn't come out, but Mike Washington was wearing an Under Armour body suit. He looked like the Silver Surfer. Or an Olympic speed skater.

  16. Stephen Tsai:

    Hey, congrats to Bonar for making it to No. 1. That might be the fastest lurker-to-1st ascension in the history of blogging.

  17. homey ®:

    James - koakane is way heavier than you! You are around my weight. :lol:

    ST - What equipment would a female use?

  18. LizKauai [Believer]:


    woo hoo!

    Adam and Sol - REPRESENT, BABEE!

    hi ho :mrgreen:

  19. homey ®:

    Fun times for the QB's this season!

    Last season it was all Colt Colt Colt. This season...who is going to step up and be the starter? Will it be an incumbent or will it be a noob? Ahhhh, exciting times.

    Then there are the receivers. It will be difficult for the incoming recruits to grab a starting spot but ohhhhhh the excitement.

    Now for the RB's. We have thunder, lightning, and the Tasmanian devil...soooo exciting!

    Will the o-line shake off the doubts? We'll see how good they are at alligator wrestling.

    D-Fence - Live up to the hype!

  20. LizKauai [Believer]:

    Libre's Auntie Rhoda was at Rotary on Tuesday. We are PUMPED for our RB's this year - and the fund got a bunch of happy dollars from both of us ;-)

  21. homey ®:

  26. Stretch:

  33. koakane™:

    djmitcho you in back da isles yet. know you will be on lanai only but welcome bruddah.

  34. al:

    homey....i think that the oline had a good year in 07. i really don't see the group as a liability. in fact, i believe we have a lot of depth and the staff will have the greater challenge of naming the starters.

    although they say that the oline will also rotate guys in, this is the unit that rarely at any level gets rotated as much as any other group. i believe though that we will have a "set" by the third or fourth game.

    the cream always rises to the top.

  35. Jayson:

    Just saw this on the Skins website


  36. koakane™:

    shucks secretary meeting ova so be good and play nice

  38. g-nalo:

    Just think if they could teach height. I’d be like 5′5″ tall!

    think they could teach "instigating"?

  39. Kazz:

    Nice to see POSITIVE UH-related news!!!

  40. gigi-hawaii ©:

    Wow, Jayson, awesome story about Colt. Thanks for the link.

  41. Kekoa (iPhone):

    Homes ~ Sideline seats or end zone, and for how many?

  42. LizKauai [Believer]:

    Mahalo to
    I Believe and Pomai and A-House- da bracelet team!

    hi ho

  43. MeiLing:

    Good news on the bracelets for the wahine. Mahalo, Pomai! Maybe I'll be home by the time they present them.

  44. d1shima(tilted):

    Howzit again All.

    Nice breakdown, homey. Lots of anticipation.

    Kudos to Coach Coolen. Very classy.

    Go LB's! Represent!

    M W F's @ 3pm. Hmmm...

  45. Garret:


    Thank you for the link to the Colt article! That article isn't on Google yet--sometimes things never show up there.

  46. Garret:


    With the equipment NASA has now, they can study the sun for interesting details and even take photos of the sun.

  47. Garret:

    Brief mention of a Warrior recruit.

    Eleven former Compton football players have signed national letters of intent, according to new head coach Jason Brown.

    The list is led by wide receiver Dustin Blount and free safety Anthony Wilcox. Blount has signed with Hawaii and Wilcox signed with Arizona, both Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I) schools.

  48. Garret:

    Congratulation to Chad Kapanui for earning Player of the Week honors!

    Kapanui, quarterback for the Sioux City Bandits, shares Offensive Player of the Week honors for his efforts in last week's game. In Sioux City's 79-60 win over the Colorado Ice, he completed 16 of 25 passes for 212 yards and seven touchdowns. Kapanui added five rushing yards to finish his evening with 217 yards of total offense. This weekend, he and his teammates will host the Sioux Falls Storm Saturday evening at the Tyson Events Center.

  49. Garret:

    Adam and Sol are perfect choices to represent the Warriors--senior leaders who have proven themselves on the field.

  50. Hawaiiroller:

    Morning all. :)

    Adam and Solomon, great representatives for UH.

    Love those pictures ST.

    Thanks again to Pomai for all the organizing for the women's bracelets.

    A 6'5", 240 lb QB! Wow! Good luck to all the QBs.

  51. Buffoman:

    Heard from a pretty good source that the o-line remains a troublesome area. Hope that observation is wrong as it would appear that the pieces behind that line have real potential. O-line was a problem in the Sugar Bowl and now we're going to start the season with another SEC speed rush team.

  52. d1shima(tilted):

    Thanks. Great read. Go Colt!

    JMHO but I don't think your camera qualifies as "sun-certified" equipment ;-)

  53. Stephen Tsai:

    Well, if things don't work out with the offensive line, maybe Alexander can move there.

  54. Stephen Tsai:

    This story bothers me a lot.
    I like Clapp, and I know he was following Frazier's policy. But you can't say that you were going to pay for your children but not tell the people you invited they should do the same. If he felt it was wrong — and there's debate about that — then he should have shared his concerns with everyone else. Now it looks like he introduced a policy, then changed his mind. That's not fair to the others. And it really made Marilyn look bad.

  55. Kekoa (iPhone):

    Let's not forget A-House as the *Bagman* on this end. Mahalo sir!

  56. Stretch:

    Re: Clapp

    What is the purpose of this article?? Is it to make Clapp look good or to make others look bad??

    It says that he was "invited to bring a spouse and two children with him at UH's expense under the athletic department's policy". I am sure that Marilyn had the same invitation.

    Later in the article, Mollway says, "with regard to children, we were told children would be going" because it would be a hardship on some families to leave them behind, "but university (funds) would not be spent for children."

    Was it or was it not in the policy that he the children would be paid for?? I am sure Clapp knows the policy since

  57. Stretch:

    ooops, sorry, cut short

    I am sure that Clapp knows the policy since he was "in charge of of implementing then-athletic director Herman Frazier's travel policy "

  58. Bowzo's Rule:

    Hi ST:
    Was just wondering if you or any other Tsaikos could explain what an "unsupervised workout" is? Do the players just work out together or do they get some instructions or imput from the coaches? Just how unsupervised is it? Thanks.

  59. James:

    G'nalo...Stretch will be holding instigating classed during the summer....mwahahahahaha

  60. A-House:

    homey, koakane, and others whow will purchase tickets in the "south end-zone" - when time permits during the game, take a peek at Sec D, yellow/nosebleed level, row 10, you will find A-House family and EthelM sitting with the Roberts bus drivers.

    we love our seats!!!!!

  61. A-House:


    I watched L&L last night with great interest because of Amemiya as a "potential" UH associate AD under Jim D where he can learn and possibly be Jim's successor.

    He is very knowledgeable, articulate, and personable.

  62. LizKauai [Believer]:

    A-House- Did you get your renewal call yet?

    Woo Hoo!

  63. FloridaTed:

    Morning, again, gang.

    Yeah, let the competition begin. Man, all this potential, exciting. Great pictures, Tsai-Meister.

  64. troll:

    Are coaches allowed at these practices ? I think it's great that Inoke is helping the new QB'S even with the competition for the starting job. Go Warriors !!!

  65. Ronnie:

    Bowzo's Rule & troll - My understanding (which could be kind of limited as my vacation day draws near) is that coaches are not allowed to be at the unsupervised workouts or practices. The players run the workouts and practices. I think the only contact they are allowed with a coach is with the strength coach, but I'm not sure.

  66. homey ®:

    al - It's not that the o-line is a liability but after the SB many have mentioned the breakdown of the o-line as the main reason for the Warriors inability to click on offense. This has created uncertainty for the upcoming season since the Warriors will still have many of the same personnel returning. Will the vulnerabilities still exists? I don't know. That's why I wrote "shake off the doubts".

    The o-line will need to step it up and erase all doubts and it all starts in the Swamp. What a test! Exciting times!

  67. homey ®:

    Kekoa - Whereabouts on the sideline are you talking about? Sounds very interesting to me since the UH staffers haven't called me YET!!! :x

  68. oldie:

    Just got a call from UH on upgrading my seats. They said nothing available where I want to upgrade to so I'm keeping my current seats. Apparently, things are going well so better seats are not available.

  69. homey ®:

    Ronnie is so smaht! Can't wait to see her in action...singing of course.

  70. homey ®:

    oldie - Where did you want to upgrade to?

  71. A-House:


    Don't know if UHAD personnel called - season tickets under Mrs A-House's name.

    We are not in the market for new/upgrade seats or more seats for this year.

    Did you get the call?

  72. d1shima [sez:]:


    No call from UH Tix Ofc yet either but did get my Na Koa polo today.
    Hoo, I feel so....connected now.


  73. Loa:

    howzit gang!

    Rausch said he received a late recruiting push from Southern Methodist, “They gave me a call the day before I signed here,” Rausch said. “I didn’t even call them back.”

    hehe, i guess all is fair in recruiting

    Big Mahalos to the Bracelet Gang!

  74. d1shima [sez:]:


    You really hoping for mid-sideline seats?

  75. las vegas:

    in my mind's eye, i pictured Pomai as looking sorta like Kui Lee.

    he looks like my dear departed Uncle Gil, amazing things, those cameras.

  76. homey ®:

    d1shima - If there's no hope then I'm wishing.

  77. Loa:

    Steve M. - No. I meant 6′0″ 230. That was my playing weight. I’m now down to 204…or so…..

    Hey James - you woulda been the biggest guy on our team, in fact you would prolly be the biggest guy in school, hehe

  78. SteveM:

    Where's Liz right now? We are hoping for sideline seats too--between the 20's and up in yellow...

  79. SteveM:

    James was 230? Wow-- I was 130 in high school . We going in opposite directions... :)

  80. Loa:

    SteveM - kimo prolly had less hair back then too

  81. g-nalo:

    G’nalo…Stretch will be holding instigating classed during the summer….mwahahahahaha

    as they say................if i HOPE to learn something.........learn from the best.

  82. oldie:


    I'm in H, high Orange. I wanted similar in J, K, L M. No more.

    Last year they offered me one row up and five seats over in the same H. I just kept my seats.

  83. d1shima [sez:]:

    Plus I bet James can still tie one MEAN Double Windsor



  84. d1shima [sez:]:


    Jus' wonderin', but if you stay in H, at the edge, and you try lean ovah to the left, wat, da guys in J get mad or wat?

  85. Loa:

    ok, 10-7, be back later, if not have a safe rest of the day and play nicely

  86. homey ®:

    g-nalo - then you gotta learn from jojo.

  87. homey ®:

    Loa is a dispatcher?

  88. homey ®:

    I wonder if James has a fetish for schoolboy clothes?

  89. d1shima [sez:]:

    homey is a driver?

  90. Jason:

    So Stephen better be at that volleyball game to represent us! I might decide to go to that game too, if I can.

    I think two of the keys to O-line play this year, particularly against Florida, will be when the QBs take the snap from under center and the running game. The defense can't afford to line up with wider splits that way. Besides, I think they will be alright. AhSoon is more of a guard, so moving him inside works well. Got some athletic tackles in Hisatake, Letuli, and Kia who should compete for starting jobs. And I haven't seen any film on him, but I'm curious about LaCount as well.

  91. homey ®:

    d1shima - I'm a wannabe law enforcement officer. 10-35.

  92. d1shima [sez:]:

    Oh, that explains the handcuffs. :shock:

  93. d1shima [sez:]:

    ....but what about the daily delivery of fruit?

  94. g-nalo:

    "And I haven’t seen any film on him, but I’m curious about LaCount as well."

    Jason - isn't he from Kailua High School? if so no wooorrrrrry........haa

  95. d1shima [sez:]:

    Nau Pau Lun Chau Wah!

  96. James:

    d1...ha ha ha...had to do that almost every day for four years......

  97. James:

    loa is on scene somewhere...maybe he'll be 10 - 9 a little later.....

  98. homey ®:

    d1shima - Yep, I got the whole getup...holster, nightstick, pepper spray, vest, shades, and 2-way radio. Oh, and also the belt with the bullet holders.

  99. James:

    homey...I don't have a fetish for school boy clothes.....now girls clothes on the other hand...mwahahahahaha....just kidding...

    The problem with the o-line at the sugar bowl, IMHO, was not so much the O-line but more of the play calling. Keeping Colt in the shotgun almost exclusively allowed the DEs to line up wider. With their speed, they were able to get to the outside quicker. If we ran some inside stuff and had Colt go under center a few times, it may have kept the DEs honest and Colt wouldn't have been under as much pressure. But you are correct in saying that people's perception is something the O-line will have to address and, as was said in Remeber the Titans, "Leave no doubt."


  100. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    One Hundred!

  101. James:

    I thought La Count was from Europe somewhere and made a mean chocolate cereal.....mwahahahahahahaha

  102. James:

    d1/homey - homey, you wear that on 'special' nights when da kids not home??? mwahahahahaha

  103. Garret:

    Tebow to go into politics after his football career is over?

    But the day Tebow retires from football, he will have a strong political future.

    Let’s go back to his April visit to the Florida Legislature, shall we?

    In that session, which was front-page news in the Gainesville Sun, Tebow was recognized with a resolution and a “medallion of excellence,” the highest honor for a Florida citizen, for, of course, winning the Heisman Trophy, but also for such demonstrations of character as his missionary work in orphanages in the Phillipines, where those surgeries were conducted.

    Even Governor Charlie Crist, a onetime college quarterback at Wake Forest, rising star in the GOP, and potential vice presidential candidate is curious about Tebow’s future:

    Crist asked Tebow if he was interested in a political career.

    “That might be a possibility,” Tebow said, adding that he is a Republican. But for now, Tebow said he is interested in completing his degree in family, youth and community sciences that will help him develop a career focused on working with nonprofit groups and underprivileged youth in addition to whatever his football future holds.

    “That’s good stuff,” Crist told him.

    So we know the thought of political service has crossed Tebow’s mind.

  104. homey ®:

    James - We'll see what transpires in the Swamp. The key is adjustments.

    BTW, rumor has it that the Village People are Damien grads. I find it difficult to picture koakane dressed up as a sailor and wafan as a construction worker. I'm pretty certain that rumor is an urban legend.

  105. homey ®:

    James - I wear that almost everynight!

  106. homey ®:

    I thought Tebow wanted to be a skin removal specialist?

  107. al:

    homey...oline, i think this year the difference will be the new personnel managers. ron lee, brian smith, gerke, etc will be allowed to give their input and collectively will decide who is first string and will allow the second team to compete daily.

  108. al:

    so greg looks like a buffed shawn withy-allen.

  109. Garret:

    Pretty funny that SMU's first 2 commits for 2009 are on defense, including the 3-star DE who gave a "soft verbal" commit today. But does it really count as a commitment when the recruit says this:

    "I'm committed to SMU. I'm just keeping the door open."

    Contrast that with the Daniel Smith case where he wants a verbal offer to be binding. Here this recruit is saying that he's accepting SMU's offer but he's going to keep looking around. He even specifically named Baylor and Kansas as schools who are recruiting him that he hopes extends him an offer. There are a zillion cases like this where it is clear that a player's commit doesn't actually mean that he's bound to the University he's committed to...but Daniel Smith would like to make the process binding in the other direction.

  110. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    QB or not QB? Who will the QB be, that is the question. I would'nt like to be the guy who decides. So much talent at the spot. It's definitely going to be worth it to go to some of the informal throwing practices and take a gander at the lads. Hey, a question for the blog geniuses or any who think they might know: have we ever had as much depth or talent to choose from at the QB position?

  111. homey ®:

    DPK - yes.

  112. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    * The blog geniuses are thinking long and hard about DPK's brilliant yet spineless question...*

  113. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    What year and what group, oh Homish one?

  114. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    Speak up, homey, and you get ONE beer on the nineteenth.

  115. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    * A spineless question, a spineless answer? *

  116. Garret:

    Washington State just kicked this incoming QB off their team so he won't be the QB against UH this season.

    Quarterback Calvin Schmidtke will not be throwing passes for the Washington State Cougars after all.

    The Lakes High standout, who was The News Tribune’s 2007 All-Area co-player of the year, will be released from his national letter of intent for a series of traffic citations and other criminal charges.

    Seven of his 11 citations in the past 18 months have been traffic-related stops, but Schmidtke will be at Fircrest Municipal Court this morning facing DUI and other alcohol and drug-related charges.

    Schmidtke passed for 2,724 yards and 37 touchdowns last fall, earning him MVP honors in the Western Cascade Conference, and leading the Lancers to the first round of the Class 3A state playoffs.

    In mid-November, he was arrested on a DUI charge – something WSU coaches were aware of when they started recruiting him a month later.

    WSU offered Schmidtke a full athletic scholarship in January, and the Lakes senior gave an oral commitment to the Cougars while canceling a trip to Arizona. He had four other scholarship offers.

    One unnamed WSU official said Tuesday that Schmidtke was told on his recruiting trip to Pullman he had to steer clear of further legal troubles. That did not happen, because in March – three weeks after he signed his letter of intent to play at WSU – the teenager was once again facing criminal charges in a separate incident.

  117. James:

    homey....urban legend? I don't know...I was often mistaken for the Indian Chief..and I think djmitcho was the cop....throw in your ideas of koakane and wafan....and I think......maybe....mwahahahahahahaha

  118. homey ®:

    DPK - Think of it this way...Year in and year out JJ says, "This year's crop of QB's are as deep and talented as any... ". So yes, there have been years where there have been QB's as deep and talented as this years QB's.

    The biggest difference this year is there is no returning starting QB though Graunke could be considered a starter since he did start a few games. When you look at the overall D1 starting experience at QB there isn't that much. That's what makes it exciting because everyone (maybe not everyone) will get a shot to show what he can do. The coaches are gonna say things like, "each QB has their strengths and weaknesses", "At this point in time it's difficult to name a starter", "They all are progressing" , "So and so looked good today" , "We'll go back and look at the film..."...

    But realistically, one of them will outshine the others and the coaches will pick that up immediately.

  119. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    James you was two tirty when you played for Da Monarchs? Bow wow lau lau!

    DPK...yep....about 20 pounds heavier than I am now.....scary yeah....

  122. homey ®:

    DPK - Was you a rolly-polly in high school?

  123. koakane™:

    buffoman share your sources because these guys are da key imho. they have talent not quite sure if some of the blocking schemes, individ techniques up to par yet and only game will give them brotherhood.

    as foa starting with Florida, think das a good test to see who is stepping up and what adjustments gotta be made.

    mahalo for sharing :o

    Heard from a pretty good source that the o-line remains a troublesome area. Hope that observation is wrong as it would appear that the pieces behind that line have real potential. O-line was a problem in the Sugar Bowl and now we’re going to start the season with another SEC speed rush team.

    Re: Clapp

    What is the purpose of this article?? Is it to make Clapp look good or to make others look bad??

    The purpose of this article is to expose the hiprocarcy that has been going on the past few weeks. Damage control is in full gear and as usual is not working. The interesting part was that the person (Clapp) in charge of putting together the list was able to redact the redactions. This obviously was done to add to the coverup. I wonder what Donovan is thinking? We have an associate AD that the legislature doesn't trust do to misleading information provided them, an a fan base that is being messed with. Trust in the department is critical because UH depends on donations to help with the programs. And who put Clapp in charge of the list anyway, Hindshaw?
    OK going off the Kool Aid.

  125. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    * (bell sounds) DING DING DING DING DING! That will be ONE beer for El homey on the 19th! Good answer, lil pal.

    I can't help but think that somebody who played here last year will start at the Swamp. Knowing the R&S is crucial. After that, who knows? I love Inoke's leadership, but Tyler has a great track record as a part time starter. The guys behind them are good too. The top dog in this fight is gonna be hard to beat!

  126. gigi-hawaii ©:

    James ate too many malasadas to go with his Portuguese heritage!

    j/k. I don't know what heritage James has. Maybe Chinese for all I know.

  127. gigi-hawaii ©:

    DPK, I thought Homey was allergic to alcohol. Remember the scare he gave everyone at the last K call?


  128. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    If I showed you guys pics of me from high school, you wouldn't belive that the guy in the pics was me. I only got this fat acouple of years ago when I hurt my knees. I just haven't taken the weight back off. *sigh* (this reminds me, I have to work out this afternoon.)

  129. homey ®:

    gigi - James is Eurasian. That's why he has that upper crust aura surrounding him. Sometimes he like buy that Versace suit but then thinks he can get it cheaper in China.

  130. Stretch:

    DPK - I think we already seen that picture of you. Weren't you wearing red or something??

  131. jm2375:


    Lost on tonight. Get busy with the housecleaning! :) j/k.

  132. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    Homey is DEFINITELY not allergic to alchohol. He is simply CR intolerant.

  133. homey ®:

    gigi - the scare wasn't because of an allergic reaction.

  134. homey ®:

    jm2375 - I finished last week! :x :lol:

  135. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    You're lucky I'm not a vindictive man. I have photo shop skills which COULD make folks here look like the Village People.

  136. homey ®:

    DPK - Stretch has sources with Photoshop skills too!

  137. gigi-hawaii ©:

    Yeah, I am CR intolerant, too. Prefer gin and tonic to straight CR. I guess the reason is that gin has no odor.

    Course, I like beer, despite the smell, cause less alcohol.

  138. Stretch:

    I have no Photoshop skills. I literally have to cut and paste pictures together...

  139. Stretch:

    gigi - i guess you don't get a "Tsaiko" shotglass

  140. jm2375:

    Homey - housework like the Energizer bunny, it just keeps going and going and going .... :)

  141. gigi-hawaii ©:

    Stretch, are you bringing those shotglasses to the Kcall on June 19?

    I'll get DPK to drink from mine.

  142. Stretch:

    Homey - housework like the Energizer bunny, it just keeps going and going and going ….

    homey is like the Energizer bunny, he keeps going and going and going..... lucky wife (I think)

  143. koakane™:

    Stephen #54 I so agree with you. I have taken my family on events when traveling to a state of hi sponsored conference on the mainland but state has always made it a strong point that family air fare and accommodation had better not appear on any vouchers.

    btw neva get response from you about saturday can no can?

  144. homey ®:

    gigi - what brand of gin do you drink? I never heard of an odorless gin.

  145. gigi-hawaii ©:

    JM, you should join us on the 19th at Club Genji.

  146. gigi-hawaii ©:

    Homey, I always associate scotch and bourbon with my alcoholic grandmother. It was awful when she would get drunk on the stuff. So that's why I don't like the smell of CR.

    Gin doesn't have the same odor.

  147. gigi-hawaii ©:

    I had to live with my grandmother for 4 years while attending UH.

  148. homey ®:

    jm and Stretch - I wish! We all know what CR can do to the energizer bunny. One to five CR's are okay but not 27! :lol:

    Based on one pic of a guy in red tights I once saw, SOMEBODY in here besides me has Photo shops skills.

    I weighed about 185 when I graduated HS. My current weight is classified, certified, and worst of all can't be denied! ( I weigh less than bulla and less than he THINKS I weigh... )

  151. homey ®:

  163. homey ®:

    I'm trying to decipher what subliminal message is hidden in jojo's post.

  164. Bulla:


    if i were a customer standing in line to ship cargo to the mainland, i'd borrow your scale...it would save me hundreds $$$$ in costs. be that as it may, you don't look an ounce over 225 lbs.....really, congrats.

    did anyone say 'lightning strike'? haha

  165. Bulla:

    jojo herself is sub-liminal don't you think?

    could i have a subliminal on the rocks, no salt pleeeeeze?

  166. Bulla:

    "Memphis is a great place for a lay, over a husband with a hangover."

    was that a typo on jojo's part earlier, or am i reading between the lines?

  167. duffer:


    Have you got a "boutique" hotel near the Sheraton Waikiki?

  168. James:

    homey...you're right. I am Eurasian....mostly Chinese but with some French and possibly Italian thrown in...not sure about that one....

    Gigi...see above. Also, Elvis is really from Tupelo, Mississippi...he just lived in Memphis.....mwahahahahahahaa

  176. Stephen Tsai:

    how long is sake good for?
    is it like wine and gigi where it ages well?
    or is it like the rest of us?

  177. James:

    gigi...I resemble that remark.....

  178. James:


    for argument's sake.....mwahahahahaha

    I actually think it doesn't age well......

  179. Stephen Tsai:

    re: unsupervised workouts.
    it means coaches can't be coaching.

    bonar: ok, now i have to think of a prize.

  181. Stephen Tsai:

    hey, leila is back in town.

  182. gigi-hawaii ©:

    ST, huh? Why, you got some sake for us? I drank that for the only time on JAL on New Year's eve.

  183. James:


    Aged sake, or "koshu," is a topic I am wary of breaching. There are a number of reasons for this reticence, not least of which is that aged sake represents such a miniscule portion of all sake that is out there. Aged sake is hard to get, quite expensive, and overall a totally different animal than regular sake - and certainly NOT better in any unequivocal sense. Nor is there any one proper way to age sake, nor any one universally agreed upon way that aged sake should turn out. In one sense, it amounts to - more than anything else - a diversion in the sake world. Fresh sake is really what warrants most of out attention.

  184. James:

    Jason....I don't know about that lately....BWahahahaahhaahha

    LEILA!!! LEILA!!! LEILA!!!

  185. Jason:

    *bows* Welcome back, Princess Leila!

  187. Barry Markowitz:

    Hey D1Shima & Bulla, whats the lowdown on a St. Louis DB escapee to the Mainland named Brody? He is a 10th grader this upcoming season playing in the Mainland. Do you guys think he has potential...he is age 14, and is already 6'. Let me know, I have cousins in his new town that can evaluate him. I was told good things about him today. He might be worth tracking as a kid with definate Hawaii connections, if he plays up to expectations. Mahalo.

  188. homey ®:

    Someone mention sake? Oh, I did.

    Leila! Leila! Leila!

  221. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    I'm willing to bet he has a great career as a coach here. I'm also willing to bet that Quip won't last long as a poster here.

  222. Stephen Tsai:

    Leila knew she was being photographed.That's why she's pretending to read yesterday's paper.

  223. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    No gigi, just takin' a short break. Back to work...

  224. gigi-hawaii ©:

    DPK, I am not cracking the whip. haha, feel free to stay.

  225. Stephen Tsai:

    Legislature doesn't control UH hiring.
    Mack has a guaranteed five-year contract.

  226. Quip:

    For one million ($1,000,000) a year, if braddah cannot produce one winnah, I doubt the legislacha goin spend anada three million ($3,000,000) on one coach before calling it a game. Dey not dat stupid, ah?

    For one million a yeeah, you expect one winna, ah?

    You got all dem zeros, braddah?

  227. homey ®:

    Quip - Do you wanna bet?

    So what, Quip, you gonna be paht of da 12th man and cheer for da team or what???

  230. Da Punchbowl Kid:

    The legislature doesn't hire and fire anybody at UH, that's why I said that. I still think he'll be a winner. BTW "Quip", I already think I know who you really are, your pidgin is showin'. No worry I keep um to myself. ;)

  231. g-nalo:

    eh g-nalo knew you stay around da corner someplace.

    what practicing singing ……………… oh sorry meant golf swing

    both are hopeless in my case, but i seem to hold my own with eating. haa

  232. g-nalo:

    I completely understand the thing about desk/table clutter. I have four tables in my lab that are completely covered with "stuff". A few years ago one of my girls got so disgusted she did me a favor and cleaned up one of the tables. I nearly had a coronary. I could not find a single thing for weeks after that -- until I rearranged my stuff so I knew where everything was.

    A place for everything, and everything on my tables and desks.

  260. chawan_cut:

    yeah, my desk is full of useful junk. and at least i know if i need something, its there, somewhere. but at least its there, and not thrown away.

    Okay. I really do apologize. We have 16 more school days to go and the kids have finally affected my mind. Geez. Sorry!

    wafan-Ralph, T******* is a longtime friend - we moved to Kauai a year or so apart in the late 60's- early 70's. She is also a member of the B***** Faith ;-)

    The latest invention by the Japanese will be totally useless for any Tsai-ko. They created a mini-ramen bowl complete with noodles! Of course the bowl is truly a mini-bowl at a mere 1/25,000 of an inch across. The "noodles" are also in there. The bowl and noodles are made from nano-tubes.

    Don't know if anyone else saw this WiiFit review, but I was ROTFLMAO.

    According to the game's virtual fitness expert, people with an uneven center will unnaturally compensate for the imbalance, causing unnecessary strain and poor posture.

    To improve that balance, "Wii Fit" guides your customized Mii character through a series of mini-games, strength training sessions, aerobics exercises and yoga poses.

    But as with any fitness program, you first must take the dreaded "before" measurements so you can eventually achieve "after" results.

    I thought I had originally set up my Mii character to look just like me. But I apparently took quite a bit of latitude with my Mii's body shape, and the game used the Balance Board's weight sensors to make some, uh, "corrections."

    It was equally hilarious and depressing to watch my Mii look down in horror as his body ballooned to more accurate proportions.

  289. djmitcho:

    Well, gang gotta go to da odda job now. Will see all tomorrow. Gotta listen to people sing Karaoke for the rest of da night.

    Just saw the KGMB report on the new Clarence T.C. Ching Athletic Complex at the Lower Campus.
    Looks go-o-o-o-d!
    Is the legislature now off the hook for the money they were all so anxious to throw at UHAD?

  299. Pauoa Boy:

  308. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc:

    NOTE TO BLOG REGULARS: Most of this post deals with the Board of Regents. If this is not of any interest to you, please skip over to the next post.

    But before that, would somebody please tell me what CR means in the posts about booze? Used to drink when I was young but gave it up on August 31, 1981, at 11:37 pm after deciding that I'd rather eat the calories than drink them.

    With respect to the Board of Regents, they are not directly appointed by the Senate but confirmed - or not - after being selected by the Governor from a list prepared by Regents Candidates Advisory Council. The Senate cannot fire the Regents nor can the Governor, but the latter can force a letter of resignation.

    The full story reaches back more than eight years ago when the issues about (Democratic) administrative and perceived legislative interference in the affairs of the University of Hawai`i System finally led to a Constitutional Amendment which was approved in the fall of 2000 by a margin of over three to one.

    It was not an easy task to set the transition in motion and, in fact, it wasn't until the 2007 legislative session that the last of all the implementing bills in many different areas were finally enacted into law.

    The shift to autonomy was being fought voraciously by Lingle's new appointees to the Board of Regents which eventually prompted the legislation in 2007 expanding the Board and setting up the Regents Candidates Advisory Council, a bill which was vetoed by Lingle and overridden by the Legislature. The Council began its work late last summer.

    Under the re-organized BOR, there are now 15 seats. Currently through June 30, 2008, ten of the positions are filled. Of that number, five individuals had their terms extended by one year to June 30, 2008.

    The regular terms of two individuals will expire on June 30, 2008.

    The terms of three individuals will expire in 2009 (2) & 2010.

    In mid-February, a list of 22 names to fill 12 upcoming vacancies was sent to the Governor broken down into six categories with the number of seats is in parentheses after each category: At-Large Student (1); At-Large (2); Hawai`i County (2), City & County of Honolulu (5), Kaua`i County (1), Maui County (1).

    Included in the List of 22 were four current Regents. The Governor selected only Kitty Lagareta to be considered by the State Senate, but she was not confirmed.

    She also withdrew her At-Large Student nominee after the Senate Education Committee deferred further action on his nomination.

    The following individuals have been confirmed and will take office officially on July 1, 2008: Artemio Baxa, Maui; Carl Carlson, West Hawai`i; Harvey Tajiri, East Hawai`i; Howard Karr & Dennis Hirota, C&C of Honolulu; Teena Rasmusssen, At-Large.

    Therefore, on July 1, 2008, these six new Regents will join the three who are in mid-term.

    This leaves the following seats "vacant" - At-Large Student(1); At-Large(1); C&C of Honolulu(3); Kaua`i(1).

    The Governor is expected to extend the terms of many of the current Regents for another year and is hoping for a more friendly Senate next time around.

    Clarence TC Ching Field Upgrades.

    I know they said that the entire complex will be completed by 2011, BUT will the field turf itself be done by August as JD said?

    Or has this large donation changed things up?

  310. d1shima [sez:]:


    Crown Royal.

    btw, I'm glad you didn't have the accidental erasure problem with that last comment.

  311. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc:

    KEKOA: I tried to get to the BOR meeting in Kapolei this morning but got lost. The two places I stopped to ask for directions weren't able to help me out. Perhaps you could take me for a tour of your town in exchange for lunch on me for you & your dad.

    On my way back, I went to the Stadium Authority meeting for a couple of hours before leaving for a third meeting at City Hall.

    Aloha Stadium in pretty hard to miss even for folks who don't know the area very well. Watch for some really interesting changes in Stadium-slash-parking lot regulations between now and the first home game.

    Women's VB schedule is out - here are the opening games.

    08/29/08 UCLA vs. Ohio 5:00 PM
    08/29/08 PENN STATE 7:00 PM
    08/30/08 Penn State vs. UCLA 5:00 PM
    08/30/08 OHIO 7:00 PM
    08/31/08 Ohio vs. Penn State 3:00 PM
    08/31/08 UCLA 5:00 PM

    Guess that lets out the SSC for a Swamp Blog Party earlier in the day.

    Off to still another meeting - DrDoc will be in Waimanalo for his while I will be in Kane`ohe for mine. Will be recording the LOST season finale but probably will be too tired to watch it until tomorrow night.

    Have a good evening everyone.

  312. SojuNTaegu:

    Nothing like going to lunch and watching the Lakers win! What a game!

  313. Pauoa Boy:

    oye haha.

  314. Kazz:

    Oh nevermind....

    Liz Chun just answered my question.


  315. Pauoa Boy:

    Lakers win, hopefully Boston comes through and can be like ol skool finals

  316. d1shima [sez:]:

    OK, they really not playing P.E. football anymore.

    Mack just said on the news that when the new field is ready, they going practice in sun, rain, sleet , snow, watever!

    Yeah, baby.

    (Note to myki and sj-macro: When get sleet and snow I will jus' rely on your reports, okay?)

  317. SojuNTaegu:

    I agree, it will be the 11th time the Lakers and the Celtics have met with the Celtics winning the first 8 and the Lakers the last 2.

    It will be a great series...

  318. Pauoa Boy:

    I like Coach Mack style, he seem so calm and soft spoken, but he got the killah instinct.

  319. d1shima [sez:]:

    Oh almost 6:30 (despite what the blog clock sez). Gotta hustle to gigi's house....
    It's dinnah time!

  320. Pauoa Boy:

    I would take the Lakers, think they playing the best basketball right now, Kobe is unstoppable, the Celtics sometimes I dunno if they playing for real or just going through the motions

  321. wafan:

    Pauoa Boy . . .

    Okay, the next time I ask what and where, please do not answer. It took me several minutes to wipe off my keyboard. I think I am having hunger pains now. Dang.


    Time to check for cracks.

    See you all at zero-dark thirty! Be here or be a regular rectangle.

    hard to believe you and PL didn't have any input on it.

  332. SteveM:

    Hmmmm. Al and I were noticing that there is almost two distinct groups that attend weekday lunch Cattle Calls versus Saturday dinner Karaoke Calls... except for a handful. Looks like they are converging tomorrow to help Al cure his "problem"... :| Mwaahahahahaa

    Gotta warn my cuz to expect a "handfull" tomorrow...put on extra cooks and stock the refers.

  333. BG:

    Aloha Tsaikos!

    Interesting VB schedule that W-Doc posted. Actually, if the Gater game is scheduled for 6pm EST like they did their 2nd game of 2007, it would be perfecto for the SSC! The game would start at 1pm HST because of Daylight Saving Time and would perfectly dovetail into the first game of the VB doubleheader. Lessee...4 hours of football followed by 5 hours of volleyball. Lasting impressions...no voice and sore butt!!! Gotta love the possibilities!

  334. jm2375:

    uhhh... what's tomorrow?

  335. Jason:

    BG: 6 PM EDT = Noon HST, not 1 PM.

  336. d1shima [sez:]:

    Daylight Savings Time ends on the 1st Sunday in November so Jason is correct.

  337. d1shima [sez:]:


    You're kidding, right?
    You mean it's not your birthday?

  338. Garret:

    I noticed that when this Miami reporter wrote about Miami's new smash-ball offense, he noted Reagan being an integral part of it. The other thing I noticed is that he has Reagan at 270 pounds--has he lost that much weight?

    Finally, you should take a close look at what the Miami offense promises to be: A gang of bullies. This won't be a quick-strike, down-the-field unit. They will be a bruising running team first and foremost. They will try to go through rather than over defenses. Given the added girth of Justin Smiley and Jake Long up front, the return (everyone hopes) of 232-pound Ronnie Brown and 225-pound Ricky Williams at RB, the addition of 265-pound TE Anthony Fasano and with 270-pound Reagan Mauia at FB, this team will RUN the ball.

  339. Garret:

    This note about how Miami is thin at the WR spot is nice, as it is another indication that Bess picked a good team to go to. I think that Bess has a real shot to get some playing time this season, which is fairly unusual for an undrafted free agent.

    The Dolphins woeful lack of talent at wide receiver just got thinner. When Perry was signed to a one-year contract, former Cincinnati teammate T.J. Whoseyourmamma was disappointed. "That guy is talented," Whoseyourmamma said of Perry. "That's a loss for us." So I initially could see Perry, experienced and quick, giving the Dolphins receiver corps some of the lightning it definitely lacks beyond Ted Ginn. But now Perry is waived/injured and one must assume the team will seek other help at the position.

    Woo hoo.
    Almos' Friday!


  348. chawan_cut:

    that's a nice complex. they should name the complex Ching, but call the field Cooke still.
    like Cooke field at the Ching Complex.

  349. chawan_cut:

    looks like the local tv station's websites all have their own videos up in regards to the Ching Complex.
    maybe i'll retire from the video uploading business.

  350. momotaro:

    Garret re: #109

    The difference between the SMU recruit's soft verbal and Daniel Smith is that Smith is alleging his offer from UH was on the condition that he not entertain offers from other schools, so if he was approached by other schools he could take no visits and had to tell the other schools that he was committed to UH, effectively discouraging other schools from recruiting him.

  351. momotaro:

    DPK re: #110

    In 2000, after Dan Robinson graduated, UH brought in Timmy Chang and two highly-regarded JC QB's (Nick Rolovich and Jared Flint) to compete at QB. Chad Kapanui was also part of that class.

  352. koakane™:

    chawan another station reported they got the Cooke family to agree to the renaming. Somehow doesn't the drawing look very similar to the Iolani athletic complex building?

    that’s a nice complex. they should name the complex Ching, but call the field Cooke still. like Cooke field at the Ching Complex.

    i'll have to have a talk with stevem. he has been using my name and "quoting" from fantasized conversations we allegedly had.

    Howzit Mei Ling.

    Great story this morning's news on the Ching donation to UH Athletics. Everybody making speeches, photo ops. Even had Carl Clapp's pix on tv. But our Jimmy D really humble.

    Funny story. Six years ago I put a bust of Shakespeare next to da fence by da road by my mudda's house on da Panaewa ceded lands. Rain an shine for three years, my mudda had to look at da bust as she drove in an outta her driveway. One day I drove ovah my mudda's house an noticed da bust was missin. I figured somebody wen aihui da bugga. Two days latah da bust was back, but sumbody had shoepolished da face brown.

    Da moral ah da story? IMHO Jimmy D is now a brownie. I say he can hang on da ceded lands. He give good kine vibes, mo bettah dan one ho'o punipuni mai ho'o palai maka.

    Jimmy D :D clean us up fo be recognized as one national powah. use da SB SCANDAL as levrage. give da ha'le one good scrubbin, boat sexes.... tell us wat yu like doo nex.

  374. MeiLing:

    Dalton Hilliard received his official offer in writing from UH last night! He and his parents were very excited when they told me.

  392. Bulla:

    ok, nice photo of princess,

    can we say that 'princess has back' now? i know homey was thinking about it, haha.

    off to protect the natives from the tourists alooooooooooooooha

  393. haka:

    PIAA DS,
    That's great news on Dalton being offered and the Hilliard family being excited. I hope this is the year our top local boys stay home and make it the best local recruiting year ever!

    Let's get the FAB5......or ten would be nice. Mahalo for all your hard work helping Hawaii's athletes.

  394. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc:

    Aloha Everyone:

    Best way to get a new blog up is to post something close to No. 400.

    According to Donovan's presentation at the Stadium Authority meeting yesterday with respect to the ticket price reductions, most of them will be for children, youth & UH students in certain sections, primarily the North End zone. There may be some family packages coming out as well.

    At this point, I have not heard about reductions planned for single sales for seniors, adults & season ticket holders in premium seating areas.. That doesn't mean they aren't coming, however.

    What would really sell the seats in the Stadium would be two very large screen screens on the two end zones with the capability of showing the game live. Do such things exist? If so, corporate sponsors might be willing to pick up the costs.

    Someone asked earlier about the total costs of the Cooke Field and all the bells & whistles project. According to documents distributed earlier this year, the total cost at that point was expected to come close to $9 million. The Ching constribution plus the funds allocated in the state budget will require probably an additional $2 million to be raised over the next two to three years. That's doable.

  395. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc:


    Ching constribution = Ching contribution

  396. Garret:

    Dispute during this women's kickball league resulted in a huge fight!

    ampa Police officers had to break up a fight involving players and fans at a sanctioned kickball game at Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park last night, according to a Tampa Police report.

    Officers responded to the park at around 7:30 pm last night, after a woman called police saying a 100 people were involved in a fight on the sidelines of the game. When they arrived officers did find a fight going on and large group of people watching, according to Tampa Police.

    They had a difficult time getting through the crowd because they were being uncooperative and refused to disperse, according to police. When the officers did reach the people who were fighting, they found several girls with ripped shirts and several hair weaves which had been pulled from the heads of some of the girls who were fighting, cops said.

    Minutes later a 2nd fight had broken out, the same people gathered across the street, now armed with sticks. Once again officers had to force their way through the crowd.

    One billion dollars is no longer enough. The price of admission to this, the 25th anniversary edition of the Forbes 400, is $1.3 billion, up $300 million from last year. The collective net worth of the nation's mightiest plutocrats rose $290 billion to $1.54 trillion.

    Good morning everyone!

    A minute ago, I saw the small font problem everyone has been describing for the FIRST time in Safari! The ads were spread out and each item had a carriage return to really drop and extend the ad text down.

    Cleared up on the next reload except for the glorious 3D blue gradient background. Guess homey is right... it is a CSS problem (which no one can fix or wants to admit). Think happy thoughts...happy thoughts :evil:

  402. koakane™:

    morning and howzit

    very busy this morning so it must be friday but have a break now

    it is me or does the drawing of the new Ching athletic complex look very similar to that of Iolani school? but its way cool and about time UH gets something like that.

    with all thats happening to UH athletics safe to say JD is off and running with positive results on upgrading the program.

  403. Capitol -ist/WassupDoc:

    According to a UH press release, here are the ticket rates for the upcoming year at all three facilities where tickets are sold.

    Aloha Stadium end zone upper level football season tickets will be reduced. Individual game tickets in the north end zone will drop to $12 from $22 for ages 4 to high school.

    A season-ticket package in the upper level for men's basketball will fall from $59 to $40 for UH students. A single game adult upper-level ticket for an individual game will drop from $22 to $18.

    Student season tickets for baseball go from $75 to $50 .

    Free admission to men's volleyball matches for UH students in the Super Rooter/Manoa Maniacs sections and the upper level.

    Adults who purchase at least two tickets to any game will receive two student tickets for the price of one for that game.

    For many regulars on the blog whose kids are not under roof any more or the grandkids are nowhere nearby, this will not have much of an impact unless you treat kids from the neighborhood or church; however, creating additional family-friendly sports entertainment opportunities pays off in increased concession sales as well as reduces the possibility that negative fan behaviors will occur. Remember last season's whoopdedo over fan behavior?

    Hope to see some of you either today or tomorrow.

    bhf2 and FloridaTed - I just got a call from the UH Ticket Office. I am on the list for 6 Florida Game Tickets @ $50. They will charge my cc in June. Not sure what section yet but they will be all together.
    Duh... I forgot to ask about the Oregon Game.

    She said I will soon be getting a call about the season tickets. They are still working on the existing ticket holder list.


  406. bonar:

    Dropping ticket prices is a great idea and the timing couldn't have been better.
