#3: Does that mean the former special teams coach is also going to Canada

9 ai-eee-soos June 16, 2017 at 1:35 pm

If he does go, he will need a passport to get back in this country.

and if he wants to coach there, he will need a canadian work permit.

p.s. If he does go, he will have to go to work –

If the guys were smart, they would all choose the earliest time
to work out—as it is hot out there. But cool when the sky is black.

It would be very nice if all the Warriors on the 2017 roster would be on this field with these hard working warriors on the off-season. Or wish all the starters on both the Offensive line and the Defensive line were pictured here working on the off-season together as a group. I don’t know if they are, but the photos show a limited amount of Warriors turning out for the off-season work-out.
Got a question: Next month, I believe, the freshmen will be enrolling in school. Will they be allowed to participate in the off-season work-out?
Hana hou Hawaii Warriors!!

Does Jeff Portnoy count as a celebrity sighting?

I saw him last night after the Brian Wilson concert.

I wanted to tell him that I enjoy his and Jackson Wheeler’s blunt talk about UH hoops.

Watching Brian Wilson, at 74, was like watching the Kennedy Center Honors with the exception that the honoree was on stage.

I think everybody in the crowd would rather have heard his “swinging a dead cat around and around” voice than Al Jardine’s son, who admittedly, can sing well. But that’s not the point. We paid to see the half-deaf guy who conducted a full orchestra during the Pet Sounds sessions, who recorded barking dogs and a train whistle on the album’s coda. This is the guy who inspired The Beatles to record “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club Band”.

Even though, at times, he sounded like Jimmy from “South Park”, it was a thrill to hear him perform “God Only Knows” and “I Guess I Wasn’t Made For These Times” in person.

Mike Love is a total jerk. His life’s work was to secure a songwriting credit on “Good Vibrations”. He wrote a whole book just to make his case. If Love is such a genius, where is his solo album? Wilson has “Caroline, No” and “Love and Mercy” as a solo artist.
