I'm not a huge football fan but I gotta admit I'm pretty excited by the fact the University of Hawaii Warriors will be heading to the Superdome to take on Georgia on new year's day. Hawaii, led by Heisman finalist Colt Brennan, had a fantastic season and ended up with a perfect 12-0 season, the only team in the country to do so.
This is pretty amazing stuff and the whole state is going bananas. The Bulldogs will be a pretty tough team to beat but there is definitely precedence for Hawaiian teams pulling out outrageous victories -- think back to wee Chaminade's stunning of Virginia in '82.
And since we're on the subject of Hawaiian athletes, I was pretty surprised to find out that Punahou graduate Michele Wie is the number four on Forbes' 20 under 25 - The top earning young superstars. (I'm always looking at ways to plug the alma mater ; BTW did I mention that Barack Obama went to Punahou?)
Pau for now...
