Wed-Thurs news. 2 a days begin, Congratulations Haku!, Coloniels fold

Lots of stuff the last 2 days.
Stephen Tsai covers the BLIND SIDE! (WEAK SIDE!) blocker position and the battle that Clayton Laurel is fighting for a starting spot.
Heffernan recalled telling Laurel: "You're the No. 1 guy. This is what you've been waiting for. You have to step it up. Guys are going to try to kick your (butt), try to embarrass you."

Ferd covers the story on UH's new television channel and the wait for it be announced by Oceanic. A press conference was called off yesterday.

"All scheduled events are on track," Oceanic president Bob Barlow said Tuesday after a press conference that was to have announced the launch was canceled. It is the second time in three months a scheduled press conference regarding the launch was called off.

And I know this blog is supposed to be unbiased, but I totally agree with Dave Reardon's take on the Denver Broncos 2nd year QB, Tim Tebow.

Which is why its a shame that Colt never got his chance. He now has to wait even longer as his UFL Hartford Coloniels is no more, as they folded yesterday with financial troubles. Also on the Hartford team were former Warriors, Jacob Patek, Brysen Ginlack, Ryan Grice-Mullen, and former defensive coordinator, Jerry Glanville.

In good news however, Haku Correa is a new father, with the birth of his daughter, Zaydah Lindsey Correa. He then had to rush off to the first of two-a-days yesterday. CONGRATULATIONS to the Correa family!(see today's news video upload for more).

And finally, there will be a lot of changes (for the good) at Aloha Stadium that fans will get to experience on game day. Besides the new GREEN roof and new chairs, the stadium authority hopes to get prices lowered at concessions.
"The main thing is that we want to find ways to bring more people back into the stadium," said Kevin Chong Kee, chair of the nine-member group that oversees the stadium.

And today was also the unveiling of the Hawaiian Airlines Field at Aloha Stadium to the media. (also see the news video below for a preview).

AND the NFL preseason began today with a few former Warriors getting some PT. I'll catch all of the news this weekend and do a big WITP recap.
