NOLA Videos, Pics / Gym, Wags, Ma'a, Colt

It seems so long ago, but it's only been about a month and a half -- in any case, Chawan Cut has finally uploaded video and pics from the trip to New Orleans. Below is a video of Willie K performing Hawai'i Aloha at the Sugar Mill on New Year's Eve. The song gets interrupted to ring in the new year, and then starts right up again. One of those flags getting waved is Chawan's, and I think you can hear me screaming at one point.

And here's a portion of Willie K leading the UH fans in a rendition of Hawai'i Pono'i in the middle of Bourbon Street.

You can check out a lot more videos from New Orleans on Chawan Cut's Youtube page.

Scott from Sportshawaii also posted links to a lot of New Orleans pics on this thread. Chawan posts his pics towards the bottom of that thread.


In news from this weekend, Dave Reardon writes about the ex-UH football players training at Fudge's Gym in Mililani.
Fajardo's current project is trying to help three players who just finished at UH get into the NFL. Mike Lafaele, Amani Purcell and Hercules Satele were all starters for the 12-1 Warriors last fall. But they did not get selected for this week's NFL Combine. Their big chance comes April 1 at Carson, Calif., when pro scouts will check out UH alums.

So now they work out three or four days a week at Fudge's Gym, specifically on the bench press. The goal is to break the record for bench press repetitions (225 pounds) for all pro days, which Fajardo said is 50.
Cindy Luis spoke to former UH football coach Bob Wagner and defensive lineman Ma'a Tanuvasa about being inducted into the UH Circle of Honor.
"I got feedback from people who thought I shouldn't accept this," he said after yesterday's luncheon at sponsoring Bank of Hawaii. "But from my standpoint as head coach, you're representing a lot of other people -- players, support staff, other coaches. It's more than about you.

"And coming in with Ma'a is just great. To see a young man like Ma'a become the great player he became, the great person and role model in the community as a University of Hawaii graduate and football player touches my heart."
Dave Reardon wrote that the UH Board of Regents approved bonuses for the UH football assistant coaches and increases in pay ranges for coaches.

And Stephen Tsai talks to Colt Brennan about his weight.
"I'm not giving you a number now, because I don't want to jinx anything," said Colt Brennan, who is scheduled to arrive Wednesday in Indianapolis for the NFL combine. "I hope it's going to be impressive. I hope it blows people away."
The "number" is his weight, which fell to 185 for last month's Senior Bowl.
He traced that low weight to the difficulty in cleaning up and moving out of his Honolulu apartment — he actually had to postpone his flight a day — and the stomach flu.
