Where In Hawaii is Edward Sugimoto? – June 9, 2010

June 9, 2010

Hey Hey HEEEEY! Looks like WWE (World Wide Ed) is up and running on the new Star Advertiser template. Props to bruddah Troy and his staffers for all their hard work so far. Yay!

However…

I’m still not quite sure if anyone will be able to find this post from within the new site’s structure (unless they/you had already bookmarked http://worldwideed.honadvblogs.com). Guess this’ll be a good way to test thangs ah?

First, a lil’ introduction:
We actually started this Hawaii-photo-scavenger-hunt-esque game way back in tha day… May of ’08 in fact, and we’ve been a’ rollin’ ever since. Following the “Where In the World Is Carmen Sandiego” model (well, kinda), I usually post a photo of somewhere (potentially) recognizable in Hawaii, and da object is to guess where in da heck I stay! And since “Where In the World Is Carmen Sandiego” makes absolutely no sense in this sitch (not to mention probably copyrighted galore), I took the liberty of renaming this puppy to a more apropos “Where In Hawaii Is Edward Sugimoto”. Ingenious right?

So wot? You t’ink you redday? There’s only one way to find out!

Post your guesses for the following in the comment area below…
* Name of location?: 1 point
* General area?: 1/2 point
* Year photo was taken?: 1 point
* Month photo was taken?: 1 point
* Why (come) wuz I dea?: 1 point
* Google Street View Link?: 1 point

June 7, 2010

It was a little over a couple years ago that I found myself writing an introductory message much like this one and I gotsta tell ya, it feels a bit strange. Back then, I was introducing myself (and this blog) to the Honolulu Advertiser community, and today, I be hea, doing it all ova again.

I’m optimistic that some of you may be making your way over here from the WWE `Ohana we built on “that” side, and I’m also hoping that we can find new family members on “this” side.

Whatever the sitch, I’ll be sure to try and make this place as fun and as interactive as possible. We’ll start this Wednesday with an all-new “Where In the World Is Carmen Sandiego” “Where In Hawaii Is Edward Sugimoto” photo guessing game.

Y’all ready for this!? 🙂

Big Ups!
* To the University of Hawaii Wahine Softball team for taking us on a ride during their amazing season!
* Props also to the Men’s Baseball team who fell to ‘Zona yesterday.
* To the Celts for evening the series up with the Lake show. Rondo is becoming a big time playa no?
* To the former Honolulu Advertiser staffers for their hard work in the past.
* To the current Honolulu Star-Advertiser staffers for their hard work in the present.

too windy for candles… lol!
