Cadiz makes the team

July 30th, 2008
By

Congratulations to running back Joey Cadiz, who has been invited to the Warriors' training camp, which opens this weekend.
Cadiz, a 2007 graduate of Mililani High, attended Humboldt State last year. He earned one of 104 spots (UH is keeping one open) because of his hard work in running drills and weightlifting sessions this summer.
Cadiz, who is 5 feet 6, is expected to serve on the scout team. But earning a berth against tough competition is quite an accomplishment. Mario Cox and Alonzo Chopp have been invited to rejoin Aug. 25, the first day of the fall semester, when the roster limit is lifted.
Wideout Jett Jasper, slotback Nate Nasca, cornerbacks Kawika Ornellas and Richard Torres, and offensive lineman Les Soloai also earned training-camp berths.

It's never too early to think ahead.
One of the 28 scholarship offers went to an eighth-grader.

UH coaches and staff are required to attend "Tongue Fu" classes — sessions designed to teach speech and communication skills. One of the lessons is on how to relate to the "Millenium Generation." (Hint: Anyone born before 1990 should not refer to someone as "dawg.")

That sound is the breaking of young men's hearts. Our co-worker and fellow blogger, Caryn Kunz, is engaged. Caryn is a graduate of Kahuku High and Stanford. Her cousin is UH defensive tackle Quentin Beaver. She also is Inoke Funaki's classmate.

    Yep. The guy from New Zealand, I believe.

    A carry over from the previous blog thread:

    Aloha, late night Tsaikos!!

    Did another run through the Swamp lands. Very boring blogs compared to Tsaikoland.

    In a couple of lengthy season predictions threads of which http://www.gatorcountry.com/swampgas/showthread.php?t=60593 is a good example, gator fans are very unconcerned about their chances against Hawaii with most sure they will hold us to less than 21 points and lay 50 to 60 points on us. There is some concern about Miami which Florida plays the week after us, but nobody is discussing our game as anything other than an “easy win.”


  10. Lopaka43:

    ESPNU has put up a Preview at
    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/preview?gameId=282430057
    and begun a Conversation thread for the Florida - Hawaii game at
    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/conversation?gameId=282430057&sort=oldest

    As of 1:26 am HST, there were 34 comments of which only one thought that Hawaii would win a close game. All the rest (SEC homers) are certain we are looking at a repeat of the Sugar Bowl experience.

    Fine with me. Blog away. I like what Pilares had to say about what he expects from the month of August under Coach Mack. Stay humble, work hard, be ready to play the best anywhere anytime. If we want to play on this stage, we must build on every one of these opportunities to measure ourselves against the best.

    Go Warriors!!


  11. Koauka:

    Why an eighth grader? Family?


  12. djmitcho:

    Good Morning Tsaiko Village.
    On my way to get a root canal done. Will get caught up on the blog in my state of pain later. Have a great day!!!!


  13. Garret:

    Congratulations to the Warriors who earned training camp spots!


  14. Garret:

    This Las Cruces has an article about the Warriors.

    The strength of Hawaii's defense appears to be at linebacker and in the secondary. The Warriors return starting linebackers Adam Leonard and Solomon Elimimian. Elimimian has tremendous speed and led the team in tackles last year with 141, while Leonard has a knack for playing the pass well as witnessed by his four interceptions in 2007.

    "We have the chance to be a good defense," Elimimian said. "We have to be smart and aggressive. But we really like coach McMackin. He's a good coach and he's been around for a long time and can adjust really well. We'd like to get better in every area, but if we can continue to show improvement in fall camp and as the season goes along, we should be fine."

    "We like the big challenge of playing Florida right off the bat," Elimimian said. "We want to see where we are at and playing one of the nation's best is going to help us down the road in several aspects of the game."


  15. Garret:

    The same paper has a preview of SJSU. I always like reading preseason quotes from Coach Tomey. I'm sure that the D enjoyed being allowed to hit the QB!

    With 43 returnees, including 13 with starting experience, San Jose State head football coach Dick Tomey is excited about the 2008 season.

    "In my estimation, this should be our best team since I've been here," said Tomey, who was hired in December of 2004. "We've worked hard to make this our best team and we have plenty of experience."

    For the first time in 28 years, we hit the quarterback in spring practice. We couldn't wait to start playing and see who could run and avoid pressure."


  16. Hawaiianbod:

    Good morning Tsaikos!

    31 days.


  17. Garret:

    Another preseason article on the Warriors focuses on the D.

    McMackin spent last season as the Warriors defensive coordinator. That side of the ball should be the strength this season, which is sort of odd. The run-and-shoot offense at Hawaii has drawn headlines for years.

    Now the defense must be called on to help lead the team.

    “We have more guys back on defense than offense, so we understand what we have to do,” said Hawaii linebacker Solomon Elimimian, who was named the preseason WAC Defensive Player of the Year. “... It’s always been about the offense at Hawaii. They will be under some pressure this year, that is where the defense must come in and help.”

    “I am really excited about our defense,” McMackin said. “We have two 300-plus (pound) mothers in the middle who also have speed. Speed is really important.”

    The long-time defensive coordinator at many schools and professional leagues went on and on about his defense. But he is especially happy with his two senior linebackers.

    “Leonard has been unbelievable,” McMackin said. “I’ve coached a lot of guys, but with the way he can drop back and cover the pass, he is better than any linebacker. ... Then there is Solomon, who can flat out run from sideline to sideline. Those two are excellent together.”

    Starting with Florida will certainly be tough for this Hawaii team, but the Warriors are looking forward to the challenge.

    “I think about that game every day,” Elimimian said. “We are going to have to be at our best.”


  18. Garret:

    KGMB had a note about Colt.

    Brennan is still battling with Derek Devine for the third QB spot, and he may have put some distance between himself and the 2nd year player. According to his blog on redskins.com, the former Warrior went 4 for 7 for 22 yards and no turnovers, in the Skins latest inter-squad game. After his reps, Colt says he and the Skins coaching staff went over his performance, and they were pleased with the fact that he made no mistakes.

    Brennan also had this to say, "the defense was matched up really well with the plays we called, it can be a little daunting at times, but I try not to think about it when I'm out there. As far as my decision-making and going to the right area with the ball, I think I did pretty well in the scrimmage."


  19. Hawaiianbod:

    ST - Great article on Coach Mack in today's Tizer.

    Gotta love the man. What a great guy!


  20. Garret:

    Note on Bess.

    Once indoors, both Ernest Wilford and Davone Bess dropped consecutive passes from Henne. Bess later dropped another ball that hit him in the hands on a cross route from Beck.


  21. Garret:

    Article on La Tech has a relevant tidbit.

    The learning curve for Dooley got sharper this year, as he also takes on responsibilities as athletic director. And he has to worry about travel costs as only Hawaii travels farther than the Bulldogs.

    The LA Times had no ads in their sports section yesterday?

    This morning's newspaper feels like the smallest and lightest Los Angeles Times I've ever seen, with only six pages each in the Business and Sports sections (and not a single ad in Sports — not one.)


  24. Hawaiianbod:

    djmitcho - good luck on your dental visit. Hope you will not be in too much pain.


  25. Garret:

    This Florida WR made the all-up-and-coming team--he's often overlooked because of all the hype that Harvin, Rainey, Tebow and others get.

    WR: Deonte Thompson Florida
    There was no reason to burn Thompson’s redshirt with the absurdity of receiving depth bestowed upon the Tebow Child, but Deonte was widely regarded as one of the six or eight best incoming receivers in the country last year, and allegedly measures in the upper reaches of the Harvin/Rainey Scale, speed-wise. The transfer talk is apparently behind him, and many soft, fluffy, perfectly-placed, satin-seamed touchdown balls to the front.


  26. Garret:

    Recruiting rankings don't tell the whole story--Miami is a good example, where *7* of their recruits might not join their team this year.

    As many as seven freshmen from Miami's recruiting class may not be on hand when the Hurricanes report to school Thursday.

    According to coach Randy Shannon, four incoming freshmen still have issues to resolve with the NCAA Clearinghouse and two other recruits already have enrolled in prep school after they were unable to qualify academically.


  27. Hawaiianbod:

    LizK - Prayers for your mom. May she have a speedy recovery.


  28. Hawaiianbod:

    Al - re #2 that would be my first guess. I remember him from last year's S&Q Camp.


  29. Hawaiianbod:

    To all the Tsaikos/ettes attending today's CC - ENJOY!!! Wish I could be there.


  30. Hawaiianbod:

    Mike - Happy Belated Birthday!


  31. Hawaiianbod:

    Glad to hear all of the SoCal Tsaikos are safe after the earthquake and the numerous aftershocks.


  32. Hawaiianbod:

    Congratulations to all the Warriors who earned a spot on the training camp roster.


  33. MeiLing:

    Aloha Kakahiaka!!!

    Congrats to the guys who made the training camp roster!

    ST ~ Has Jett been at UWs?

    Night-time outdoors Cardinals practice today. Hope to get there to catch the guys again.


  34. Hawaiianbod:

    BHF2 must be on Oahu already.

    Welcome Uncle! REPRESENT!!


  35. MeiLing:

    ST ~ Is that Joey in front of Alexander in the pic?


  36. jm2375:

    Howzit Tsaikos!

    Just finished catching up on 6 days worth of blog reading. Went to Maui on the SuperSloop Thurs and came back Monday night. Had a blast. Played tourii and splurged for a night at the Grand Wailea.

    My daughter’s birthday is next week. 13! :shock: Hubby, however, won’t be here to celebrate. He’s heading off to SD for a conference.

    Anyways, way off topic… got a couple of questions for the worldly Tsaiko geniuses out there.
    1) Kid wants to go parasailing for her bday. Any suggestions?
    2) Am craving good tempura. Any suggestions for a place that’s reasonably priced, either in town, on the east or Windward sides?

    Happy belated B-day to brother Mike. Happy belated anniversary to Garrett & Lori.

    Congrats to those who made the training camp roster! Stay humble, work hard, listen to the coaches, stay focused and good things will happen.

    An 8th grader? That's my kid's age! Good thing it's not binding!


  37. Hawaiianbod:

    jm2375 - Good morning.

    parasailing - you might want to check out the tourist publications. There should be coupons/discounts.

    shrimp tempura - Hifumi (Chinese Cultural Plaza); Gyotaku (Waikiki).

    Hope it helps.


  38. Loa:

    morning gang!

    congrats to the invites! keep working'em and stay hungry
    you guys make a difference, don't let anyone tell you otherwise

    220's - hated it, although it was a good team bonding experience with everyone cheering each other on but if coach feels it could cause injury then not worth the risk, there will be many other opportunities to bond in the dance studios


  39. Loa:

    wow, eighth grader, yeh i remember seeing a 12 yo on the news last year training with the older kids
    28 offers - i wonder if the names can be released or gotta wait till they accept, hmmm


  40. Hawaiianbod:

    Sorry to dissapoint all you Jeff Portnoy fans (ie Kazz et al) but Leahey & Leahey is substituting today.


  41. Stretch:

    Good Morning Tsaikos!!

    Great news on Joey Cadiz. He has been at all the "practices" that I have attended so it is good to see hard work paying off.


  42. Hawaiianbod:

    G-Morning Loa.

    Practice next Monday already. AU'RYTE!


  43. Eagle:

    MeiLing -

    Yeah that is Cadiz in front of Alexander in that picture. He is short but tough and will give the 1st team defense some good looks in preparation for Game Day. I know that the UH coaches talked to Darnell Arceneaux (his OC at Mililani) and Coach Arceneaux said that Joey is a 110% player and would be a great addition to the scout team. That, along with his work ethic, sealed his spot.

    Coming up from a boarderline starter on his own high school team to making a great DI squad...the kid has heart.


  44. Stretch:

    ST - great Q&A article w/ Mack this morning. One question, how come the Tsaikos were not invited to Jack's for breakfast??


  45. Loa:

    howzit HB - 10:00 a.m.!

    Stretch - also no forget to remind Stephen about his credit card bill, hehe


  46. Stretch:

    Anyone going to Waimalu Elem at 7pm tonight for the Donavan & Mack talk w/ Takai??


  47. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER:

    jm2375- What, no mini cattle call with Duffer and son while whitey chases the elusive fish of Alaska????

    Aloha Kakahiaka!

    :!: Yea :!: everyone who made the training team!!!

    MAHALO to everyone who is praying for my Mom. She is doing very well after surgery and we are still praying for a clean pathology report is a few days.

    Another busy day at work today.

    HiHo Esme and Away!


  48. Stephen Tsai:

    1. Yes, that's Cadiz in front.
    2. The Jack's "date" was last minute. I was wandering around while Pilares was blogging, and I ran into Mack. I called up some TV types, and away we went.
    3. Jett has been at every unsupervised workout.


  49. Bulla:

    good morning Tsaikos,

    have a Tsaiko day!


  50. Stephen Tsai:

    jm:
    My daughters took me jet-skiing at a place that also offers parasailing. I forget the name, but it's located right near Longs Drugs at the shopping center (not Koka Marina) in Hawaii Kai.
    They've got kama‘aina rates, and they'll take pictures of you screaming and crying like a lost kid (oh, wait, that was me on the jet-ski.


  51. Stephen Tsai:

    Loa:
    I was looking for extra media guides while Pilares was blogging when he says: "How do I answer this?"
    I guess somebody told him to remind me about my charge-card bill.

    I also got a call from Doc yesterday. She wanted to know how I could forget my brother's birthday. I had to explain that I knew his birthday was on the 29th, I just didn't know yesterday was the 29th. The days are all running together. I can't believe that in a week, I'll be blistery and sweaty while watching two-a-days.


  52. Stretch:

    So where is the picture??!!??


  53. gigi-hawaii ©:

    haha ST very funny! You should treat Mike and his g/f to a nice dinner somewhere.


  54. Calvin from Kona:

    Just a quick hello to everyone before I fly to Maui for the day. By the way, I'm sure this is old news but I saw Wreck on a TV commercial last night.

    Looking good Wreck!


  55. longdistance808:

    Where do I go on SteveM's site to find out about tix to the OSU game? Or is someone already privy to that info?


  56. jm2375:

    Thanks for the suggestions. I checked some places on the web but nobody gives you their kamaaina rates except over the phone. ST - I think the place is called Aloha Water Sports. There's also a few going out of Kewalo Basin. Gotta ask if I can sign the waivers for her friends or do the parents have to? That may complicate things a bit.

    Liz - no time fo eat. Going going going. Went Aquarium, Haleakala, Hana, Molokini, around the "head", Iao Valley, Makena. Hadn't been to Maui in years. The map we were using had no warnings about going around from Kapalua to Wailuku. Kinda scary.


  57. Stretch:

    ld808 - not sure but I think that the UH ticket office might still have some available for Oregon St. If you are interested in joining the Tsaiko group, email SteveM so you can be put in the list for information.

    Also, LizK might have an extra ticket to the Oregon State game.


  60. Stretch:

    gigi - LizK's extra ticket is spoken for.


  61. Stretch:

    Anyone going to the Game On dinner with Donavan and Mack on Thursday night??


  62. djmitcho:

    Thanks Hawaiianbod. It's already done and I'm at work now.


  63. MeiLing:

    Question from a novice:
    If the scout team is suited up & on the sidelines for a game, can the Coach put them in the game if they are needed? It may never happen, but if you had injuries (heaven forbid), or we were in a blow-out game & it would be nice to give guys a chance on the field, would they ever be put into a game? I like the path that Coach Mack is taking in including the scout team on the sidelines, because they do contribute to the team's success.

    GO WARRIORS!!!

  82. Gorg:

    Good morning TSAIKO-NATION!!

    Have a great Wednesday and rest of the week. Be careful cooking, I nearly cut my finger off last night just sharpening the knife. I needed 6 stitches but at least I got Vicadin...Yay!!


  83. (Jesse) James:

    gigi ... I believe KK is a 68 grad.


  84. gigi-hawaii ©:

    Gorg, That's why I don't cook anymore. Cut my fingers several times and have scars to prove it. Even went to the ER for one of them.

  88. Garret:

    homey,

    Yes, my wife is Lori--she lurks and has posted 5-10 times in the past and has been to Cattle Calls in Vegas and Oahu. Now I have to figure out how to get my 5-year-old to post so that she can break Ronnie's son's record for the youngest poster.

    Nice to see you back as yourself! I hope that you had a great time on your vacation.


  89. gigi-hawaii ©:

    KK grad from Damien in 1968? OK, he is younger than I am, then.


  90. Mouthwash:

    Why are the players still wearing Nike cleats in all the new pictures??? I thought we had an Under Armour deal and the Nike one ended mid summer or something???? Its almost time for camp, shouldnt the players get to break in their cleats before camp a little.


  91. Garret:

    Happy (belated) Birthday Mike!


  92. Garret:

    Mouthwash,

    I'm guessing that the new UA equipment hasn't been passed out yet. I figure the earliest they could do so would be when camp starts, which is quite soon. I hope that the equipment is all here on time.


  93. homey ®:

    BigWave - at our height anything over 5'6" is tall!


  94. homey ®:

    yeah, gigi graduated in '66.

    gigi your memory failing again, yes remember your mom as I told you before. she was the secretary when I was a student and latter when I returned as a teacher in the early 70's. I was the first ever graduate to go back and teach at DMHS, even before ralejo, waina, jmederios, dsnakenburg, hloyd and others.

    last sightings of k-m was in a pool in makaha playing with some hairy chested person then running off to play with some puppies father at Thai something.

    I noticed on Monday that the players started wearing the cleats to practice. Prior to this, they were using the Nike stuff since that's what they had. I guess equipment is being distributed now with the camp starting up next week.

    Congrats to Jim D for finally getting his contract signed.

    I like to see/hear the UH is making offers to 8th graders - let the State of Hawaii know that Coach Mack is leading the way and wants to recruit as many Hawaii players as possible!!!!

    OK coaches, don't forget that outside island get good players too!!!!!!!!!!!!


  113. Hoohiki:

    A-House...I second that.."don't forget neighbor islands get good players too!!"

    ST...how about asking Alexander and Rausch to be guest "chatters"? Good way to welcome and get to know them. Also, we can let them know how supportive we are and give them some "aloha".

    RE: 2008 Football Season Tickets

    I just called the SSC and they said they "expect" the tickets to arrive/mailed out the week of August 18th.

    I'll call them again the week before to make sure.

    I never have them mail it to my house as I would be responsible for everyone else's $$$$ should I become a victim of mail theft so I just have UH hold it for me to pick up.

    I suggest the same for everyone else IF they share the same concern.

    You can just call the SSC Box Office, give them your name or the name the tickets are under and request to HOLD them there for pick up. Of course ONLY the person that the order is under can pick them up in person with their ID.

    Again, UH will NOT call anyone to tell them their tickets arrived so better to call them around August 18th to check.


  123. d1島:

    Mrs. A-house would "rule" in a boiled peanut contest!
    "Rule"...is that a really out-dated term?
    Maybe Tsaikos should go to Tongue Fu classes, too.


  124. d1島:

    Kazz,

    OK. Wen you get there check if get fuud. If so, find Stretch and tell him to post something with his "most awesome" new phone.

    "Most awesome" - is that not "rad" anymore?

    Where do I sign up for Tongue Fu? :-p


  125. d1島:

    :-P ?


  126. LizKauai [Believer]:

    Hiya!

    Buttahfeesh.... misoyaki....ymmmm! I only get toonafeesh fo lunch today.

    Kazz- did you happen to overhear when da Florida Tickets and OSU tickets are being mailed???

    Welcome to all the new bloggers, btw!

    Caryn- Congrats! - btw- are you coming to the T-Gate with a Ted's Pie by any chance????
    :mrgreen:


  127. mctruck:

    Gigi,

    Just wondering?, when exactly did you start wearing primarily, "Muu Muu's?...from small kid time-o-what?
    I saw your younger picture on this blog.....you was some-fine-young-woman, back then too!!(this compliment so you don't get mad about da muu muu...bwaaaahahaha!).


  128. gigi-hawaii ©:

    Liz, I'll check the store for a Ted's pie -- chocolate cream, if possible. Hubby and I will be at the 1st tailgate of the season.


  129. d1島:

    btw, Gorg and gigi,

    Maybe you folks should try a butchers glove for slicing - very effective.

    or check your local medieval armor supply store for a chain mail glove...


  130. LizKauai [Believer]:

    Speaking of cooking knives and the 6th F.

    Da odda week when fishing for halalu, one of the dunkers landed a pretty big (for us) shovelhead shark. I gave him my fishing knife (actually my Henckels paring knife) to cut out the hook. The shark jumped and the knife flew into the water. Auwe.

    Da guy was all sorry but I downplayed it... nevah mine... it was... only...one.... coughHenckelscough...

    My new fishing knife arrived today. This time I got a Kuhn Rikon paring knife. It has a cool sheath (I made a sheath out of cardboard and rubber bands for my old knife).

    So what is my point?
    When cooking (gigi and, er, dork), be sure to have the best, sharpest possible knives to work with.

    I found that most cuts come from pressing too hard on a dull or junk knife.

    :lol:


  131. gigi-hawaii ©:

    I started wearing muumuus and sandals every day when I began working at the public library in 1999. Before that, I had to wear dresses and high heels at the law office.


  132. LizKauai [Believer]:

    omg... talk about being on a wavelength!


  133. d1島:

    mctruck,

    Da missionaries made her transition into muumuu from da grass skirts!

  134. LizKauai [Believer]:

    "Maybe you folks should try a butchers glove for slicing - very effective."

    idunno d1 - I tried cutting with a glove once but it had not edge on it at all...

  136. Kazz:

    Oops I neva ask. My guess is they would have to go BEFORE the 18th (for the Florida game).

    Who was taking the orders for the Tsaikos heading out to Florida?


  137. d1島:

    Liz,

    :-D

    heheheh


  138. (Jesse) James:

    speaking of fishing...anyone hear where oama are running on Oahu??? Maybe tita leadfoot sistah like go oama fishing...


  139. LizKauai [Believer]:

  141. (Jesse) James:

    d1...you know back in missionary days, they only wore grass skirts...no tops.....EWWWWWWWWWWWWWW BWAHAHAHHAHAHA


  142. Kazz:

    RE: FLORIDA AND OREGON STATE TICKETS

    I called UH back and they said that the Florida tickets will be mailed out (via CERTIFIED USPS MAIL) "early August".

    The Oregon State tickets however will be later on but probably not much later on as that game will be around the corner as well.

    But they will NOT be mailed together for those that ordered both as the Florida game is sooner.


  143. LizKauai [Believer]:

    (J)J - if Oahu stay like Kauai, nobody gonna say nuttin until AFTAH dere collah stay FULL... bwahahaha!

    oama is mo ono den halalu, imho.... fried crispy.... mmmm....


  144. (Jesse) James:

    LK...nah, guys on Oahu tell people where stay. I just hate driving around looking for all the guys standing in the water....


  145. LizKauai [Believer]:

    Fo- real- get planny good oama places???

    My #1son is da best fisherman in our family. He no need bait (sometimes uses white shrimp legs or one small piece oama skin) mosta da time. When de feesh stay biting, he catchem wid da teeny bare hook!


  146. LizKauai [Believer]:

    Thanks, Kazz - certified, eh? sheesh. gotta go home early for pick em up den...

    ok.
    HI HO!


  147. chawan_cut:

    Congrats fellow Lostie Caryn!
    can't wait to hear you bellow in a few weeks.


  148. Kazz:

    Fishing eh?

    I bought one 20 dollah pole 5lbs line BEBE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yeah... I have no idea what I am doing... :sad:


  149. d1島:

    (J)J,

    Hah? Oama running?
    Is he a new walk-on? Wat kine tat's he get on his foreahms?
    Let's get some pics!


  150. Kazz:

    Liz,

    Yeah certified mail is a good way for the sender to verify that it was received.

    Only when they mentioned certified mail did I realize that maybe UH sends all their season tickets this way (I've always requested to pick them up in person).

    That way, should they be stolen in the mail (***KNOCKS ON WOOD***) at least UH can verify that it was not signed for and maybe they can nullify the barcode on the tickets and re-issue new ones to the rightful owners.


  151. WarriorBasketball:

    JJames

    People at work asking the same question. Where is the oama these days. Seems the schools coming in later and later these days. In the past, the oama were so plentiful that even the papio would ignore the oama when we used them for bait.


  152. (Jesse) James:

    d1...I heard Oama was laser timed with a 4.3 40...put him in with Pilares...and we'd have grease and lightning at slots....and his forearm tats are supposed to be awesome...hook and line on one forearm, Papio on the other....MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Warriorbasketball. Yeah, I remember Oama being plentiful as a kid. Seems to have smaller schools these days (although I was surprised at the number in Waikiki - closed area and Kaneohe Bay always has lots out by the sandbar area) Maybe people not abiding by the bag limit? or maybe the bag limit is too high...I mean 50 per day is pretty high.


  153. LizKauai [Believer]:

    WarriorBasketball - das right. Our fishing habits are reflecting the changes in environment or whatever else is happening.

    The oama are in small groups here and there... nothing that could be called a school.

    The halalu used to show up in June and this year it was July.
    In the last few years, even though the fish are steadily declining in numbers, this year was a very dramatic dropoff.


  154. (Jesse) James:

    I would think G'nalo would know. Have to ask him to ask his friends.

  162. chawan_cut:

    caryn,
    you shouldn't pose with your ring for ST. without THE Princess' videos, he's relied on his newfound passion of paparazzi.
    i think if you move fast enough, with his old camera and slow shutter, it wouldn't be able to catch up with you, so all he'd get is a blur. even he wouldn't be able to crop that to make it work. heh.


  163. Kekoa:

    D-1 ~ If you are attending the Wala'au in Waimalu Wednesday - We be there With Wide eyes and a Wide grin our faces.

    ~ Then, was there any complaints or near death experiences from the food?

    ~ I'm thinking all went well, and everyone left with full tummies.

    ~ Did the honaree show up or did she perform the Esme/Jojo?

    ~ Did ST make it, or did he have to go to the bank and clear that Credit Card bill first?

    hi xs!

    hi ho!

    homey,
    How come Liz talk to you li’dat? :shock:

    Hah! Good question. Let's see....

    "xs" must stand for either "excess" or "extra small". Either way, not good. Better for be just the right size.

    "hi ho" must be some kind of greeting, like "hi guy". But, does that mean homey is "ho"?


  176. gigi-hawaii ©:

    lol, mojo


  177. d1島:

    Kekoa,

    I don't think I'll be at the MacMalu Meeting tonite; will check here for the synopsis later.

  179. d1島:

    Hey Mojo!

    Are you back on da rock?

    About now homey must be feelin' pretty good about things, having feasted on Thai fuud. Will look forward to his clarification of this issue...HO HO HO!

    Kazz...did you get 5 lbs of line? or 5 lb. test line?? lol....tita leadfoot sistah can show you how it's done.....


  181. WarriorMojo:

    Good afternoon Tsaikos!

    For mainland fans like me...please see below for games currently scheduled for TV. Has anyone heard anything about this year's Hawaiian Telcom package yet? Any special discount codes like last year? Remember your kindergarten lesson: SHARING. :)

    10/17/08 at Boise State (ESPN)
    11/29/08 WASHINGTON STATE *

  183. Stephen Tsai:

    The word on the street is Caryn is an awesome singer.
    She's also bringing along Kelli.
    So please visit their blogs.


  184. WarriorMojo:

    D1, yeah. I'm back finally. Actually, I was back yesterday, just in time to chase Mr. Pilares away. Shucks.

    But I don't blame him for not answering the question I asked. I wanted to cancel the question as soon as I hit "submit".


  185. d1島:

    Mojo,

    re: Ho boy...

    If the shoe fits....

    heheheh


  186. jojo ®:

    kekoa, you forget that homey is related to me through initials and he became "hoho" for a short time.

    And now I'm wondering if there is another reason that Mrs. A-House will not be entering the PBS challenge. Mrs. A-House? Feedback?


  187. WarriorMojo:

    Jojo, so you're saying homey IS the "ho" or just USED to be?


  188. d1島:

    Mojo,

    Yep. No can stir da pot, eh.

    Careful jojo, da buggah makes a living at using words... ;-)

    Of course, if UH things go really well up til then, BOTH will be :-D

    latersss.........


  194. homey ®:

    d1 and mojo - xs = extra sauce

    As for the "hi ho", the "ho" is supposed to be "homey" but the "mey" sound was delayed because of the extra sauce.

    gigi - another tip for using a knife. Grip the handle and not the blade.

    I'm full, Rob25 let me eat her shrimp curry and A-Sports and I stole her dessert.


  195. jojo ®:

    So Mojo is trying to get me in trouble....
    all I'm saying is that homey posted as a "hoho"


  196. gigi-hawaii ©:

    homey, who attended the CC? Were there 20 people, after all?


  197. Wena:

    Just finished reading todays blog. Skipped a couple days of reading.

    Mike--
    Happy belated birthday. We wanted to take you to dinner yesterday, but Tiffany cops you. So tonight, ok? We are planning for tonight, so free up your evenings.

    LisKauai--
    Hope your mom is okay. Keep us posted.

    Happy belated annivery to Garrett and Lori.

    Mavis & Jerry,
    Can't remember your blog names. Thank you so much for all the school supplies! Now to fill up the enrollment. Anyone out there with little kids? In fact, we are not open yet. Will keep you posted.

    Those living in SoCal--
    What's shaking? Hope all is safe and still.

    The place where my daughter took Steve to jetski is called "Sea Breeze" and it is in Hawii Kai.

    d1島-

    I hope you're right! I've got a feeling that Cincy will have the better year than WSU so that'll probably be the game if they only televise one.


  200. Wena:

    oops-

    I meant "LizKauai"...not "LisKauai"


  201. Rob25:

    Eh homey, I gave you my mushrooms too.

    Lunch was pretty good...this coming from someone who is not fond of exotic foods...and yes that includes many Hawaiian dishes.

    What kind of Kamehameha grad am I? Been there, done that.


  202. homey ®:

    gigi - There were some tourist, some locals, tables were full, 4 waitresses...

    Al ~ I’m back on the ceded lands now awaiting the results of the honorary CC for the Leadfoot Tita from Palolo.

    ~ First of all, was there enuff room to accomodate all comers, or did you have standing room only?

    PLENTY ROOM, IN FACT THREE EMPTY SEATS.

    ~ Then, was there any complaints or near death experiences from the food?

    THE FOOD WAS THE BOMB! COULD HAVE BEEN A TAD SPICIER BUT WAS SOOOO ONO.

    ~ I’m thinking all went well, and everyone left with full tummies.

    SOME OF US WENT BELLY UP AND NEEDED A WHEELBARROW. IN FACT WE LET ASPORTS TAKE HOME THE LEFTOVERS FOR HER HUBBY. I HOPE HE'S NOT WORKING LATE OR ELSE SHE GOING EAT EM.

    ~ Did the honaree show up or did she perform the Esme/Jojo?

    THE HONOREE DID SHOW UP AND DIDN'T SAY MUCH BECAUSE HER MOUTH WAS ALWAYS FULL. IN FACT, SHE, AGAIN , FORGOT TO TAKE PIX FOR HER HUBBY.

    ~ Did ST make it, or did he have to go to the bank and clear that Credit Card bill first?

    ST WAS HEA. IN FACT, HE SO ENJOYED THE FOOD THAT HE FORGOT TO TAKE PICTURES OF THE THREE MAIN DISHES AND THE STICKY RICE. WE TRIED TO GET HIM TO PICK UP THE TAB SINCE HE JUST CLEARED THE CREDIT CARD BILL...BUT...

    SOMEBODY ELSE WENT TO THE BANK.

    ...AND LIKE ALWAYS WHAT'S SAID AT A CATTLE (not a calf) CALL STAYS AT THE CATTLE CALL.

    ....NUFF SAID (sorry for shouting like dpk)


  204. homey ®:

    jojo - great to be your relative too!

    Rob25 - Oh yeah, the mushrooms! If anyone wants to eat a lot of food, invite Rob25.

    Another thing, little did you folks know but myki, Rob25, and A-Sports are hilarious!!! A-Sports also likes to take pictures of herself eating. I think she does that so she can help rehabilitate bulimics.


  205. (Jesse) James:

    al...the food sounded goooooddd....man, wish I could have made it....

    Wait?? Are we talking about the hostess cake "ho ho" or are we talking about the mahos that walk by the old Amfac Building late at night??? MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA


  206. Dennis Halloran:

    I was wondering if anybody knows if Gabe Tatua, the 5'5" RB/KR that UH offered last year, is returning to Pasadena CC?


  207. (Jesse) James:

    homey...A-Sports is hillarious...you should hear her yelling at hinalea..."Oooohh..you going take my bait eh? You toying wit me?? I going make you pay!!!"


  208. al:

    homey....and the doc asks more questions that gigi. would you believe it?

    we were also lucky to have former all wac player sit and dine with us.


  209. gigi-hawaii ©:

    James, how would you know about mahos that walk by the old Amfac bldg LATE AT NIGHT? What were you doing there? haha


  210. (Jesse) James:

    Al, I was told by a teacher of the gifted and talented that the 'BRIGHT' ones always ask questions. It's the dullards that don't. lol


  212. (Jesse) James:

    gigi...remember I used to work in EMS....when I worked on the first watch (11p.m. - 7 a.m.) we were called to that area often...there and the area behind Pali Longs/Safeway....


  213. al:

    psssst. word on the street is that asports has been assigned to arrange a pho call.

    stay tuned as the theme turns exotic.


  214. (Jesse) James:

    gigi...I never asked questions...and I was considered a genious....MWAHAHHAHAHAHHAA


  215. (Jesse) James:

    oops...genious=genius....LMAO


  216. al:

    my kids were in that gt program but they never asked questions. they either knew the answer or would look it up.

    i was told that people who ask an abundance of questions were either not paying attention, poor listeners, deaf, didn't know the answers, and too lazy to google.


  217. (Jesse) James:

    al..."What the Pho?" Is this possible pho call going to occur in the next 3 weeks or so???


  218. gigi-hawaii ©:

    sheesh James, you switched from 1 job with weird hours to another one with just as crazy hours.


  219. homey ®:

    al - would be interesting to have gigi and WD sit down together and talk football.


  220. al:

    (j)j....the food was as good as it sounded. i wish i was sitting in homey's place. i was sitting next to two big eaters, pride. and asports.

    if i were ajoe....i would head on home real fast before asports awakens from her nap and then grinds all the leftovers that she begged to take home.


  221. gigi-hawaii ©:

    When a friend went to a mainland college, she almost returned home cause the haole kids were so inquisitive toward the teacher. Not only that but they would actually challenge the teacher.

    so different from Hawaii, yah?

    A UH prof used to complain about the silent students here.


  222. chawan_cut:

    mmm, i'm just thinking of an impromptu CC at Ige's after the Waimalu neighborhood MacMeeting.
    nah, i can't make either anyways. but maybe the other wes' side tsaikos can put one together.


  223. homey ®:

    I stared at walls and pulled apart GI Joe's. Now I heard they are worth big bucks! I wonder how much an arm is worth?


  224. al:

    (j)j....yup, within three weeks. you better be off, bull.

    btw, asports hale viet nam has a back room waiting for us. can reserve em, too.

    maybe you need one advance scouting party eh?


  225. al:

    homey....please.

    shudder (shudders) the thought young man.


  226. Rob25:

    Hey homey...can we have a "mojito call" one of these days? Myki, A-sports and I would be even more hilarious then.

    Kekoa- the food was good, the company even better. I didn't get to talk with ST, Al, and Pride that much because A-sports was taking pics of herself eating...was good fun.


  227. homey ®:

    Nothing wrong with being inquisitive. Usually a teacher is challenged because the students know more than the teacher.

    Maybe the UH Prof was teaching a class for deaf and speech impaired students.

    BTW, what is the sound of a baby with no tongue? Ask myki and Rob25.


  228. Kazz:

    James,

    5lbs test line.


  229. homey ®:

    Mojito call! Sounds good. Maybe can concoct some on the 16th!


  230. Mike:

    I chase the non-talkers out of my classes early. Wanna "A" for the class? Gotta participate. No academic freeloading.


  231. al:

    michelle wie.......latest decision to forego the last major lpga event for a men's tournament is just, just...................dumb!


  232. sjmacro:

    Just got back from the PT CC and UW. Thanks Al for setting it up. We got to practice field at 2:55 and the 3 qbs and 1 receiver left at 3:10. Aaron Bain showed up later, saying schedule for the rest of the week is jumbled because guys flying in being picked up at airport.
    Remember, the $3 parking ticket is good for 24 hrs, works if you attend 2 a days. Also, you get a refund if you leave within 30 minutes of entry. Got our $3 back with 2 minutes to spare today. :D --sjmacro & myki


  233. Rob25:

    I agree al...what is she thinking?

    homey - should I bring the rum?


  234. sjmacro:

    homey: the pho place is Pho Tri near Kalakaua and Beretania--sjmacro


  235. Bulla:

    al,

    i agree with you on Wie's decision....huh? don't know who is advising her, but not in her best interest at this point.


  236. Bulla:

    sjmacro,

    i am planning to open a new restaurant, called 'Pho Wat' and we are going to serve beef stew and loco mocos.....when they ask for the favorite soup.....we tell them the name of the place...'Pho Wat', haha.


  237. d1島::

    Wow Spring Roll (closest Phuket Thai menu item I know to laulau)!

    Sounds like a winnah CC.

    Got some roast pork from Tanioka's...going try simulate Thelma's Special at home. Will report on survivors later...


  238. Bulla:

    homey,

    do you think anyone would be interested in 'blended' concoctions on the 16th? i will volunteer as the mixmaster....


  239. Rob25:

    My coworker and her husband love that place sjmacro! They go there all the time! Tha's really close to where I work! Too bad I don't think that I would like Pho!


  240. d1島::

    I know, I know...
    Why nevah jus go Thelma's?

    Was headed back to town already and nevah like u-turn. Plus was ono for fish patty.


  241. d1島::

    Bulla,

    Mrs. likes Margaritas.

    Sounds like another DD night for me!


  242. al:

    d1...what you cooking?
    smells ono. you think we could have one cc at thelma's or gotta be one mini cc?

    bulla....i know you are in celeb status now that you have been on tv. but, one day you gotta make one cc okay?


  243. bonar:

    Will UH experiment with the A-11 this season?? Interesting interview with the creater of the offense on L & L and comments by Kanoa on Mack's comment when asked about the A-11.


  244. bonar:

    243!


  245. al:

    michelle's advisors are her well educated parents. too bad, they never studied "common sense". pretty soon this girl with all this talent gonna throw her clubs in frustration in to the ala wai. the last tournament when she failed to do something so elementary in the game as signing her scorecard just showed that she is not mentally ready for the pro game basically because she never spent enough time in tournament situations when she was younger.

    personally, i really do hope that the light bulb goes on soon before she is past her prime and/or is so frustrated about not being able to win a tournament. right now, she needs a win in a tournament any tournament. taking her game back to compete against men is just....dumb.


  246. al:

    ummmm....what's an a-11?


  247. d1島::

    bonar,

    That was an interesting interview.
    Something tells me that the experimentation, if any, won't go in that direction though.


  248. al:

    bulla.....i could help you with that.


  249. Bulla:

    d1
    auryte! email me her concoction of choice?


  250. d1島::

    al,

    newest wrinkle in fball.

    all 11 can be eligible receiver.

    try search youtube for video.

    click my name for site


  251. Bulla:

    mr al,

    celebrity, haha, you're killing me. when the CEO of the company leans over and says, 'eh bulla, maybe you should speak', i brush him off and say, 'nah, it's your company, you talk...'. CEO leans over again and says, 'nah bulla, you should go talk...', and i tell him, '...nah, you know more people than me in the room (i lied). then CEO leans over and says, 'Bulla, you're going to speak!', that's when I say, 'Hey Lyn, sign me up, I'm going to speak!" haha

    would have loved to come to the cc, but whew, can't handle the menu....would have had to sit there and drink iced tea and tell jokes, haha.


  252. Rob25:

    Bulla aka Mixmaster - Midori daiquiri, please!


  253. Bulla:

    Rob25

    you would like a midori margarita better with the tequila, and 1/2 rim with li hing mui sooooooooooooo good. i'll have a tip jar set up! haha


  254. al:

    nobody gets drunk on midori liquer.


  255. Bulla:

    i think to make it easy, i'll stick to midori margaritas.....i'll bring the ingrediments for about 5 batches....that's the limeade, tequila, midori, triple sec, and a few other 'special' additives....


  256. sjmacro:

    homey: can Bulla substitute watercress if no mint for your mojito? :twisted: sjmacro

  258. Bulla:

    al

    midori + tequila + triple sec + ???? (they'll never know) = plenty buzz


  259. Bulla:

    sj,

    i'd share a lot of things, and i have, but some things are just plain sacred. any watercress that has been propped in the dirt and grime behind my ear lobe, well, that's just too special to part with.

    however, in Homey's case, i might make an exception, and give him one of my 'twangy' ones!


  260. Bulla:

    al,

    sorry, i misread your earlier comment, or have been stuck in the gutter on the ala wai

    i thought you wrote

    nobody gets drunk on midori.....

    liquer


  261. al:

    pull it out bulla. too many fumes from the ala wai. just way too many.

    good thing midori not lurking she would whop you on the head already.

    its time to go cook rice.

    but why am i not hungry?????


  262. Rob25:

    Bulla - I'm already bringing the rum for the mojitos...tequila, oh the memories...or lack thereof! I want to remember the KK not do a homey! But tequila with li hing mui sounds good...gotta go wipe my mouth now.

    OK now I was just telling A-sports how I love pork and watercress soup and you guys had to go and ruin that. YUCK, the imagery.


  263. Maverick:

    Oh my. The food pics.
    Tapioca! Thai or Vietnamese style? Apple bananas chopped up inside with the vanilla bean?


  264. curveball:

    LizKauai [Believer]:

    that was yesterday but you were real busy with your mom ... not much on the DC blogs today that I found.. check out my old fish pic....


  265. Rob25:

    Getting ready to head out!

    Maverick - the apple bananas were sliced and sauteed in coconut milk if I remember correctly. The tapioca was with coconut milk also.

    Bye all, check in later.


  266. Bulla:

    al,

    He is the potter, I am the clay.....more like a big chunk of dooo-doooo at times, haha. but i could not resist, oh the battle of the flesh.

    back to the watercress, Homey, how come the watercress i gave you had clumps on the bottom? ewwwwwwwwwwww


  267. Kazz:

    Oh wait... so who is going to Waimalu Elementary tonight?

    H-Bod, yes it was a PLEASANT experience to wake up to know L&L is on Wednesday mornings.

    I hope it's a sign of things of PERMANENT changes to come!!!

    Quite frankly everyone is entitled to their own opinions but I for one do NOT want to hear jibba jabba about how someone believes UH is going to "fail" this year while "hoping" for the best at the same time with the ever-so arrogant laugh following such a statement.


  268. Maverick:

    Rob -

    Omg! I can taste it. Thanks
    for the scratch n sniff scenario. ( Thanks also ST for the pic.).
    Gotta luv Da Tapioca!


  269. Bulla:

    Kazz,

    we have our work cut out for us as Warriors and as Warrior fans. '...of much whom is given, much is expected....' and i think that applies to Coach Mac. getting rid of the 220's is a good move....no redeeming value in that compared to other things they could be doing.

    power + speed = explosiveness

    that.....my friends, will control the trenches, and control the game. anything less, is pattycake.


  270. Hawaiianbod:

    Kazz - LOL. So true.


  271. Bulla:

    gotta roll boyz and gurlz,

    been fun, play nicely, i'll check on you later tonight. off to nuuanu ymca to drop off equipment for a 'family racquetball' program we are doing over there....never a dull moment, haha.

    a hui hou......................


  272. SteveM:

    Bulla -- midori magaritas? One for Peaches please... for in between Jager Bombs.

    So we are going to have Bulla's Bar in the back corner and Mrs. Bulla's Bomber's Table in the front quarter?

    Looks like d1shima's not the only one DDing)... :|


  273. Maverick:

    Interesting that 220's were excluded. Back in my track days. ( 30 years ago). They were brutal.
    So the 100 meters should be the norm ?
    Bulla, I trust your input.


  274. curveball:

    never saw a 220 yard football field......


  275. Maverick:

    Wow, I neva saw Coach Mack get rid of the 220s.

    But yes, seems like the linemen are working hard and they will need to continue to do so as this is were 99.9% of games are lost and won.

    Especially when the physical specimens of the SEC are looking to "have fun".

    BTW, hope all is well with Da Beast.


  280. Kazz:

    Camp starts in Gaineville on Monday, too.

    Sounds yummy...

    Two-a-days are upon us, which means trainers will scramble in the 98-degree heat to make sure players are vomiting out of fatigue instead of a near-death experience (or at least we sincerely hope that's the case). The first week is open to the public, so have at it. The first day is Monday.


  288. d1島::

    Sorry...Gainesville

    Koa-mahu,

    Eh, dat's a capital D to you!


  291. Hawaiianbod:

    MeiLing - re #63 Scout players who are dressed and on the sidelines are available to be inserted into the game.

    However, some of the scout players are redshirts. If the coach decides he really needs the services of a player who is planning to redshirt the player would lose that year. It happens, but not very often.

    The player would still have his redshirt year back unless he is a senior then it wouldn't matter.

    Hope I didn't confuse you or anyone else.


  292. Koa-mahu:

    what evah floats your boat babe.


  293. Kazz:

    RE: Jim Donovan Contract

    I should have made it more clear, although it's obvious:

    $240,000.00 annually for 5 years.

    Would anyone do that job for $240,000.00 OVER five years?


  294. Hawaiianbod:

    Kazz - the 220s was in today's Tizer written by the Tsai-Meister.


  295. WreckinEyez:

    Hello blog... I am just checking in... Seafood buffet at the Rio, lobster kind small but still good... Triple777 at the mainstreet still serves the best ika nigiri and raw oysters... Oxtail at the cal still the best...


  296. Hawaiianbod:

    That tapioca pudding looks sooooo YUMMYLICIOUS!!!


  297. Hawaiianbod:

    Wreck - Good luck! Bring home the Megabucks.


  298. Kazz:

    H-Bod,

    I didn't even get a chance to look at today's Tizer. Today is like the "Friday" of the week for me and I am just looking to "survive" the next 16 minutes.

    Will look now.

  301. jm2375:

    Hey guys, thanks for the suggestions. I forgot about Hifumi. Are the different Gyotakus the same when it comes to the consistency of the food? So, if I went to the Waimalu one, it would taste the same as the Moiliili one?

    I called a couple of parasailing places today. One place didn't answer, so they won't get my business. The other place put a hard sell on me. The one at Hawaii Kai might be good.

    The fuuud pixs loook really good. I went to my Weight Watchers meeting to make up for going waaaaay off my diet on the trip. Had a really expensive Japanese buffet for dinner at Wailea, but sooo goood.

    Ok, back to lurking and watching Shark Week shows. :mrgreen:


  302. MeiLing:

    Fuuuudd! Mmmmmmmm.... I'll have to go to Phuket Thai when I get home. I had a California roll for dinner tonight.

    Then went to the AZ Cardinals night practice at NAU's old outdoor stadium. Aaron Francisco on the field quite a bit. Hercules playing center for mainly the "second string" (?) group. Travis appears to be the friendliest of the guys; he's talking a lot to the guys around him. Got to see more action by Leinart & Warner passing & the receivers. Morelli & St. Pierre got some reps in; I like Morelli, the rookie QB from Penn St. No chance to get up close tonight. I'll have to go to the autograph session on Saturday morning. Maybe if I bring Spam musubi, I can lure the guys over...ya think?


  303. Hawaiianbod:

    CC - I didn't know that you're my neighbor.

  304. Hawaiianbod:

    d1 - re #300 too funny! I remember that scene. LOL.


  305. MeiLing:

    Hawaiianbod ~ Tanks for answering my question. So, if a player on the sidelines was not redshirting, they could go in & play, yeah?

    Wreck ~ Love those oysters on the half-shell at Triple 7 & the oxtail soup at the Cal. The butterfish misoyaki at Market St. Cafe is a dinner I have to have when I go to Vegas.

  313. Koauka:

    BigWave96744:

    Thanks for your answer. If Reeve Koehler is kept around good people and continues working hard to become a college football player, I think it would work. An incentive like that would make me pay attention and work.

    The concern is kids are influenced by their friends. Back in the day, when I was coaching, the coaches tried to steer kids with talent to play in high school. But the influences got the best of them and choose other activities, some not positive, and later regret their decisions.

    But all indications show Reeve an intelligent and talented young man.


  314. Hawaiianbod:

    I'll have to rely on anyone who was able to make it. ST?....Koakane?...Kazz...BHF2?


  319. Garret:

    About the importance of vet WRs on their young WRs, Miami's head coach said:

    He's playing well and I think when you're in the film room and you're watching it on film, I think that's the best learning environment. If you're a young player like a (Davone) Bess, you're watching this guy make his release and say, 'Hey, I can learn from some of that stuff'.


  320. Garret:

    Bess mentioned here also.

    I might take a lot of crap for saying this, but Anthony Armstrong was the receiver who stood out most to me Wednesday afternoon. He got separation, and had a few shake moves during 7-on-7 and team drills. Derek Hagan, who put together his third straight decent day of practice, was a close second, with Davone Bess being the third.

    Bess has a way of dropping right into the soft spot in a zone. It's either a gift, or Hawaii's pass happy offense paying off. Right now I have him penciled in on my 53-man roster, but he did drop a pass or two during Tuesday's practice, which shows he needs to work on his consistency.

    As Sparano has said, "when your opportunity comes you've got to take advantage of it."


  321. jm2375:

    BTW, for you Cowboys fans - HBO's training camp series focuses on the Cowboys this year. Last year was the Chiefs. Series starts next Wed. But, of course, there are no Tsaiko Cowboys fans, right? Only Redskins fans!! :D

    Hail to the Redskins
    Hail Vic-tor-y

    Run or pass or score, we want a lot more,
    Beat em' Swamp em' TOUCHDOWN, Let the points soar,
    Fight on, fight on, til you have WON!
    Sons of Washington, FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!


  322. Garret:

    Article about Miami players whose stock is rising or falling mentioned Reagan. Interesting that a JUGS machine could save Reagan's career, especially with how bighilofan took care of the repair of UH's JUGS machines.

    FB Reagan Mauia - This incumbent starter couldn't catch a cold in Alaska. He appears to be the best blocking option at fullback, but so far he seems VERY one dimensional, and is losing ground to Boomer Grigsby. He needs to spend 30 minutes a day on his own working with the jugs machine because that's the only way he's going to save his NFL career.


  323. Garret:

    Good mention of Bess here!

    Beautiful slant pass to Bess, about 20 yards down field. Bess breaks the coverage, and in a game would’ve had a 50 yard touchdown.


  324. jm2375:

    Hey, they sorta fixed the blog clock...


  325. Garret:

    Bess is getting a chance to return kickoffs. I can't remember him returning kickoffs with the Warriors...but Miami already said that roster spots may depend on special teams play, with WRs needed to return kicks.

    Almost all of the offensive skill players are kickoff returners, including Ginn, hagan, Bess, Armstrong, Jayson Foster and the like. The big guys are practicing rolling off their blockers. Compelling stuff.


  326. Garret:

    The second sentence here was pretty complimentary of Bess.

    Beck is completing most of his passes, but he forces one to Davone Bess over the middle into quadruple coverage. Not even Bess could catch that one.


  327. Garret:

    Nice mention of Samson here! This was the only time he was mentioned in the Miami papers...in general, it is a good sign when an OL is not mentioned much!

    Nice job by Samson Satele against Paul Soliai. The coaching staff hopes that going against Jason Ferguson every day will make Satele a Pro Bowl caliber center.


  328. Garret:

    This site rated the top 100 assistant coaches in the country. Norm Chow is #1, which is not a surprise to me. None of the Warrior coaches made the top 100 list.

    An Island of Confidence
    A Record-Setter Against Odds at Hawaii, Brennan Tackles Doubts as Redskins Rookie

    "His attitude has given teammates pause. Brennan quickly has gained a reputation as an antithesis to the stiff, all-business field-general prototype. He wears tights on the practice field. He cracks jokes with veterans. He plays the ukulele.
    ad_icon

    "He's probably one of the most interesting rookie quarterbacks I've ever been around," Campbell said.

    "He just walks around and talks about everything. . . . He has these different styles that he dresses when he comes to practice. He has tights on. He has wristbands. I'm like, 'Colt, what's all this stuff you have on?' "

    Said wide receiver Horace Gant: "He's cool, calm and collected. I think the Hawaii lifestyle rubbed off on him. . . . He puts me in the mind of a Brett Favre-type guy. It's not the conventional, drop-back quarterback style. He gets the job done."

  333. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER:

    Hi Kekoa!


  334. Kekoa:

    D-1 ~ There are some really encouraging things about the A-11 system. From what I've seen, even a medicore team was able to control the movement of their offense in a very consistent manner. Ball control, clock control translates into victory every time.

    The advantage of installing such an offense for our guys is the fact that you can utilize 2 quaterbacks like Tyler & Inoke. Any combo of a passing QB and a running QB...both on field at the same time! That answers the question about what to do with the multi-talented 11 QB's we have to select from over the next few years.

    Since it is based on the run 'n shoot, or the 'spread' if you prefer, it would not be hard to use a specialized version of it every so often to blow-up defensive alignments! (Sorry, didn't mean to use such an explosive description...forgot they were keeping an eye on me!)


  335. Kekoa:

    Hi Liz - Moms sounds like she is coming along very well. Soon she should be enjoying some 'real' food again! Ke Akua provides, doesn't he.


  336. Kekoa:

    Liz - Thanks for penetrating the 'Skins camp with all the good stuff about the Coltster. He is quickly becoming a must see monument in DC. Soon they'll have to include him on the Greyline Tour of the Capitol. Move over Abe Lincoln, Colt has arrived!

    Liz ~ Kimana tells me that he wants to train for a position as a Lifeguard. No doubt he would be a good one, just not sure how he should go about readying himself for the appointment. Any tips from your son would help.

    Diana says he should leave the Uke home, 'cause we're small kine worried about him 'serenading' the tourist while someone might be in crisis out there.

    The Miami Herald reporter was finally back to writing about practice after 3-4 days off...and unfortunately had a bad report about Reagan.

    The rest of the work was typical of what the first couple of days of practice were like: I saw more dropped passes than a professional team has the right to make -- David Kircus, Ted Ginn and Reagan Mauia stood out in that regard.

    Liz,

    Nice article about Colt.
    Only manini kine criticism is his comeback to, "Is Hawaii a good school?"
    "If you like the beach." :-|


  344. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER:

    Kekoa- Tell Kimama to train like he was going into the fire dept. (CPR, first responder, Red Cross swim training, physical stamina workouts, some muscle-building - not TOO much- need buoyancy) and swim in the ocean. I think they had a 2 or 3 mile open ocean swim as part of the testing. #1son swam on the team in high school (still has KIF 100yd breaststroke record) and was a good 1/2 mile in front of the pack during his test.

    Also- always put the people first. Mr. Aloha personality is a plus as most of the work might be patching up people who ignore signs and walk on reefs, etc. Applying a band-aid with a non-sarcastic smile is an oft-repeated activity.

    I always unplug my cell phone charger, both to save electricity and because I don’t want my kids to play with the outlet. It turns out that leaving a cell phone charger plugged in all year uses the equivalent energy of 1 bath or 6 minutes of driving per year.

  350. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER:

    d1- hard to say about this reporter... but Colt is getting a LOT of flack about Hawaii and I am taking a "salty" approach to any reports about him. (as in grains of salt)

    I really think he wants to concentrate on his game and the learning curve that Zorn is throwing at the whole team as they adjust to his system.

    A few days/weeks out of the spotlight would be a relief to him and give him a break. When gametime comes, he will be able to turn it all back on again.

    imho, of course ;-)


  351. chawan_cut:

    ok, lemme start off by saying that whatever goes down doesn't always necessarily mean it comes back up, as in me almost not making it back up ka'ahumanu street on my bicycle.
    i'm still typing up my report, and i'll be posting it on Tombo Ahi's blog because i can post pictures there and i can edit that one when i find all my grammatical and spelling errors. i'll link to it when done.


  352. chawan_cut:

    Liz,
    From the article:

    "I want to go to the University of Hawaii!" a boy in the crowd said.

    "I don't blame you," Brennan said, scribbling his signature.

    "Is it a good school?"

    "If you like the beach," Brennan said.

    Colt is Colt...just hope that next time he might say something a little more in line with what, ummm...IDK maybe, V. Hinshaw (for example) might say in response to the same question.


  356. Kekoa:

    CC ~ The Doc came all the way out to the Leeward side? Wow!...now I'm begining to wonder what that was all about...hmmm.

    Was there something not covered by the total political blanket that the Doc is known for spreading over the UH? Is there an ulterior motive by the Doc to actually encourage the building of a new stadium on da Wessai?! Awwwryht Doc! Build it and they will come! Oh and light rail with it too! Ya Hootie!...and to think, I slept thru it all...sheesh.


  357. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER:

    d1- sorry for being too wordy. What I mean is- unless we are looking at an unedited video of a Colt interview, I treat the quotes more as snippits and not necessarily complete responses.


  358. Kekoa:

  360. Addahknowsports©:

    Good Evening Tsaikos and Tsaikettes-

    Been MIA for a while. Since having difficulty in catching up, I've resorted to reading the blog backwards.
    ...And what is this I've been reading about A-sports talking and taunting the fish, huh, (Jesse) James. Aunty Tita Leadfoot neva get dat name fo' nothing. You in trouble...
    Wreck, I was going for the pan fryers and not necessarily the twenny pound ulua. (You should see the giant crabs that UHFan caught)

    I want to thank Al for the wonderful lunch we had today at Phuket Thai. It was DA BOMB! I loved, loved, loved the Tom Yum Soup (renamed Yum Yum Soup). The crispy chicken was ono and everything was rounded and grounded by the delicious curry.
    Despite what everyone is typing about me eating all the food including the leftovers.....soooooo not true. First of all, the leftovers did make it home. A-joe enjoyed it immensely. Second of all, I got to eat some of Rob25's tapioca AND...NO, I DID NOT HAVE TO BEAT HER UP FOR IT. She was very generous in sharing it and I did share it with Homey who was still looking a little hungry.
    As for the picture-taking...I did so because A-joe called to make sure I took some. The self-portrait was done for him in his style of around-the-corner-reverse-camera-back-over-the-shoulder-shot.

    It was a very satisfying cattle call and the company was fabulous as always.

    Al-

    Hale Vietnam sounds great. How 'bout we wait 'til Jason comes back from his trip and has rested up.

    Good night all!


  361. chawan_cut:

    wow, no one's up amazingly.

    anyways, sorry it took so long, but i guess i took more notes than i thought i did.

    Chawan - great recap of the meeting.

    You gotta remember, JD needs to pc, or receptive to all questons from the fans, or potential Warrior fans. Think in Jim's eyes, everybody has a great queston because they sincerely want an answer.

    Be nice to the peeps and the peeps will become fans of Hawaii Athletics.

    Redskins insights:
    "How does this year’s team look from your perspective?

    Best group of guys that I’ve worked with. I’ve covered a lot of teams over the years, and there’s such a good nucleus here. The guys are great. There are no primadonnas, really. They all have their own personalities, like Clinton’s really eclectic, a different kind of dude, but he’s cool, he’s a good guy. They’re all good guys. There’s no attitude like on some other teams."

    OK, off to work. Esme and out.


  383. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER:

    Re #350- Here's the kind of unko attitude that Colt has to deal with (or not) :

    "Colt Brennan’s Blog of Humility

    July 29, 2008

    Colt Brennan has been blogging for Redskins.com for a little more than a week now. We can’t comment on it, but if we could, subjects such as his dreamboat status, playing dodgeball with Jason Campbell, and being the most popular third-string quarterback in the league would make it the Hot Topic of the blogosphere.

    But Brennan won’t talk about that, because he’s just an all around smooth dude. He’d rather talk about things like his subconscious fear of the team veterans:

    "It’s cool to see the celebrity status of someone like Jason Taylor and what he brings to the team. It’s really neat when you get out to the practice field and you have Jason Taylor at defensive end, Clinton Portis as your running back and Santana Moss as your wide receiver. You kind of pinch yourself a couple times.

    When I’m around those guys, I’m actually pretty quiet. I understand where I am on the pedestal.

    I’ve never actually met Jason Taylor formally, but he has walked by me a couple times and said, ‘What’s up, Colt?’ It just shows you that he’s a really good guy."

    Or maybe Colt is just so damn cool he doesn’t need to say what’s up. To anybody.

    You be the judge. I’m going with the latter guess."

    http://www.stetsports.com/2008/07/colt-brennans-blog-of-humility/

    OR

    "Colt Brennan is a Dreamboat

    July 14, 2008

    The Washington Redskins signed Colt Brennan, former Heisman hopeful, a Sugar Bowl punching bag, and now competitor for the Redskins third-string quarterback slot.

    Interestingly enough, many of our gay brethren have been long standing fans of Colt, and from the looks of things, Washington will be no exception for the flesh lust. Check one of the odes of love: (insert shirtless pic of Colt)

    Was anyone watching College Gameday on 11/3? They had a feature on Colt Brennan and his passion for spear fishing. While playing the video, they showed him jumping in the ocean and swimming. Well while that was happening, his shorts came down a little bit and you could see the top half of his crack! So hot!

    Look out Brady Quinn. There’s a new hunk in town."

    http://www.stetsports.com/2008/07/colt-brennan-is-a-dreamboat/


  384. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER:

    OTOH- Colt has a fantastic group of people to throw and hand off to. I love this attitude from Santana Moss about rookies:

    "What are you seeing from these rookie receivers?

    "I see a lot of potential," Moss said. "When you come into this league young, with so much going on, you're trying to settle in and trying to do this and do that. What I see with these guys, they're confident. They already know that they've got guys in front of them that's gonna help them. There's no envy. We all here together. We've all been in this situation, so I'm gonna let them know everything that I know, and the stuff that I don't know we'll learn together."

    http://homermcfanboy.blogspot.com/


  385. LizKauai [iMac] BELIEVER:

    "*Jim Zorn named several veterans that are unlikely to play Sunday. Clinton Portis (his name had already been mentioned before as a no-go), Chris Samuels, London Fletcher, Carlos Rogers and Jason Taylor are probably out. He is unsure about Rocky McIntosh and Cornelius Griffin. Zorn also said rookie WR Malcolm Kelly was "laboring" at practice this morning and considers him doubtful for Sunday.

    *Zorn does not allow rookie hazing because that was what Mike Holmgren did in Seattle, and he thought it was a great idea. Just trying to make a team is enough to deal with, according to Holmgren/Zorn.

    *The mystery of the logo-less rookie helmets was also revealed. Zorn said those who do not have logos will "earn" them upon making the team after the fifth preseason game. They will be allowed to have them during games (NFL rules mandate it) but the logos will come off again shortly after."

    (picture of Colt at the top of the page.... then blah blah blah until you get the the BOTTOM of the page):

    "Colt Brennan has such a dedicated following that Tony Brown at Hog Heaven just puts Colt's name in blog posts to draw traffic. That's a cheap way to get hits Tony, and I want Curly R readers to know I'd never resort blatantly to putting Colt Brennan's name in a post for no real reason, nor would I consider writing stuff about Colt Brennan that really did not have to do with Colt Brennan just so I could get Colt Brennan hits.
