* Hooooo! What a game last night! The series is tied 3 games a piece. It all comes down to this last game tomorrow night. Who you got? San Antonio Spurs or Miami Heat?

Hairy Leg Tights?

So there has been a viral photo going around the social web lately that shows a pair of (otherwise, normal) hairy legs. The thing is, they are not. According to a Chinese web site, these are supposedly a pair of stockings that young women wear to ward off perverts. Clever, but is it fo real? What you think?

Weekly VH07V Updates!

* VH07V Spotted!
This week’s “SPOTTED!” shot is from VH07V‘s debut at the popular Honolulu Night Market event this past Saturday. I had the honor and pleasure of meeting Ed Kenney (owner of the popular TOWN Restaurant & host of the unreal new TV show on PBS Hawaii, Family Ingredients) when he stopped by our booth. It was very refreshing to find out that his humor and likability on TV is not an act. He is as genuine and humble as they come. Mahalo for the support Bruddah Ed!

* Successful Night at Honolulu Night Market
VH07V‘s debut at Saturday night’s Honolulu Night Market event was a successful one. Mahalo to everyone who came out to support!

* Re-Order in Progress
Because of the successful weekend, we are again wiped out in various styles and sizes and have placed a huge order to restock. Hopefully it won’t take too long to get those missing items back in stock. Mahalo for your patience in the meantime.

* Updated Product Photos!
Had some time to finally take better looking product shots so the online shopping cart looks a little more professional at least. Hope you guys like some of the changes!

* Shooting a Commercial (again)!
The other weekend, we shot the first few scenes for our new commercial for VH07V. We hope to shoot a few new scenes next weekend. Stay tuned for that.

* South Point Cliff Diving Video
In case you missed it, check out my buddy Andrew Agcaoili, aka Shibby Stylee‘s newest video after his recent visit to the Big Island of Hawaii for some gnarly dives off South Point!

Q & A With Chad Owens [Video]

June 4, 2013

For those of you who sent in your questions for CFL superstar Chad Owens, I was able to squeeze it in after my interview with him (see below). Thanks for interacting y’all!


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V92s3NfGCTM

[Big Jim]: Is pro football in Canada better than college football was in the WAC or high school football in Hawaii?

[Chad Owens]: Um, that’s a tough question. I don’t know if it’s better. I don’t know what he means, if he’s talking about the skill level… It’s football right? Anytime you get a chance to go out there and play the game, whether you’re here in Hawaii, high school, college, at the professional level: NFL, CFL, Arena (Football) League… You do this because it’s what you love to do. It doesn’t matter where you are, if you get a chance to go out there and strap it up and play the game, you’re gonna go out there and give it your all, and you’re gonna enjoy those moments and that’s really what I try and do. I try and enjoy that time when I’m out there because one day, it’s gonna be all over, it’s gonna be done, I’m not gonna be able to do it anymore, so yeah.

[Dean]: Hey Chad, been following you since the UH days. Congratulations on all your success! My question, what do you think are the most effective way to improve the lives of our keiki today and tomorrow through sports? Any plans on one day becoming a coach or mentor for children?

[Chad Owens]: I think the best thing that we can do as grown-ups, as mentors, as parents, is to just guide our children in the right way. And yes, sports is a great way to teach team concept and hard work and all those tools, but the children have to want to play sports. So one thing is you don’t want to force them into sports. If it’s something that they want to do then great, then you push them towards where they want to be, but the first thing and most important thing we can do for our children is to continue to be a great example for them first because growing up, they become what they see. They become what they’re surrounded by so as parents, as mentors, we can just be great examples. And if they do end up playing sports, just continue to encourage cause there’s a difference between criticizing, encouraging, disciplining, it’s all kind of a fine line with all those things, but keep it fun for them cause that’s always the number one thing for kids. They want to go out there and have fun so keep it fun, but keep them going and the main thing is that they work hard and they listen. And yes, maybe one day, down the road… Coach… I mean, we’ll see. Who knows? I don’t know what tomorrow is going to bring, so maybe one day. But thanks Dean (right?).

[rayboyjr]: Chad: Any possible re-entry back into the NFL?

[Chad Owens]: Um, if a crazy opportunity presented itself, possibly, but as of right now, my focus is on the Toronto Argonauts. It’s going into training camp (for) another year. This coming 2013 season and being the best that I can be for my team. If I finish my career in Canada, which I most likely will, it’ll be a great ride. The CFL has been great for me. I hope that answers the question.

[Debbie Bruce]: Aloha Chad, You are such a wonderful ambassador for Hawaii and such a positive influence on our youth. How do you feel about the Fan Aloha that follows you everywhere you go? Does it help feed your success?

[Chad Owens]: Well, this Fan Aloha that follows me everywhere I go… Debbie, that would be you! So thank you, mahalo, aloha. *blows kisses* We love you. It definitely helps. It goes back to the support that you get right? It makes you feel special. It really does. It makes you want to go out and work harder for the fans. That’s what it is. If there are no fans, what’s the sense of playing right? You go out there to entertain, you go out there to perform. We are performers in a way. In a professional way, we are entertainers. Although it’s about winning games and winning championships and those things, but if there’s no one in the stands watching, to me, it’s pointless. So (to) the fans, thank you guys so much. Debbie, again, Aloha, and I’ll see you in Toronto next week. I’m leaving on Sunday (5/26/13).

[@KsCollectables (Kevin)] : Hi Chad, as a child growing up did you fight in the back alleys, was it rough where you grew up? Did you always want to try MMA?

[Chad Owens]: I can’t say that I fought in the back alleys, but I was always the smallest kid so anytime the bigger kids tried to bully me around, I had to let them know real quick that “Hey, I’m not afraid of you, so what you wanna do?” And somehow, some way, I always became friends with these guys that tried to bully me. I was always a little scrappy kid who wasn’t afraid of anything, wasn’t afraid of anybody. But I’m not saying that’s how I decided to do MMA. MMA is a sport. It’s not a backyard fight. Hopefully everyone understands that. It’s not a backyard fight, it’s totally different. It is a sport, there’s techniques involved, you have to train. You can’t just go in there and close your eyes and throw haymakers and expect to win. That fight inside of me, it helps me on the football field, it helps me in life, it helps me with everything I do, but thank you. Great question.
