Where In the Hawaii is Edward Sugimoto? – August 10, 2011 (Postponed)

August 10, 2011

Sorry peeps. Had one shmall kine family emergency earlier tonight so I wasn’t able to work on this week’s WIH game for y’all (it’s 3:24am as I type this). 😦 Everything is OK for now so no worries, but going have to postpone “Where In Hawaii” for this week. Apologies yo. Hopefully, these bad luck Tuesdays will go away soon. 😦

In the meantime, here are a few things to help pass your time this week:

Steelers or Packers? Who You Got?

February 4, 2011

It’s that time of year again… Das right! Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner. On one side, we got Big Ben, Troy’s hair and the rest of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ D, while on the other side, we have the cheeseheads and the air attack of Aaron Rodgers and company. Who’s your pick this year and why?

Super Bowl XLV
Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Green Bay Packers

Me? I want Green Bay! Aside from the one week during the playoffs where he sat out and completely screwed my fantasy team (d’oh!), Rodgers was a beast all year! He seems like a nice guy too! Besides that, I’m not very fond of Roethlisberger. Gooooo Cheeseheads! 😉

P.S. While we’re at it, if there are any MMA fans still out there, who are your favorites for this weekend’s UFC 126?

Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort
Forrest Griffin vs. Rich Franklin
Ryan Bader vs. Jon Jones
Jake Ellenberger vs. Carlos Eduardo Rocha
Miguel Torres vs. Antonio Banuelos
Chad Mendes vs. Michihiro Omigawa
Norifumi Yamamoto vs. Demetrious Johnson
Donald Cerrone vs. Paul Kelly
Mike Pierce vs. Kenny Robertson
Paul Taylor vs. Gabe Ruediger
Kyle Kingsbury vs. Ricardo Romero

Shoots den!

Hawaii Five-0: Hana `A`a Makehewa #H50

December 14, 2010

First off, big mahaloz to Chicken Grease, effenprincess and NeedaHobby for filling in (on short notice) last week with their guest posts! Your boy had to go on one business trip for Road Runner Mobile one quick one, so they chipped in and helped to keep our `ohana entertained up in hurr! Big ups!


I had CHOKE errands to do at home last night so I was finally able to sit down and watch an episode of Hawaii Five-0 in real time. And what better way to “watch” it than to join in on the #H50 convos going on simultaneously in the Twitterverse right?

Last night’s episode was called “Hana `A`a Makehewa“, which translates to Desperate Measures. Here’s the show’s synopsis:

“It’s Christmas in Hawaii, but instead of celebrating, Five-0 is negotiating a hostage situation when Victor Hesse, the man who killed McGarrett’s father, threatens to detonate an explosive that he’s strapped to Chin Ho’s chest.”

So wot? What’d you guys think?

Some possible talking points for us:

  • How sad was Danno’s Christmas tree? Hehe!
  • “Your house, your king’s English.” LOL!
  • Ikalani = Ihilani?
  • Chin Ho’s use of rice to pull the moisture off the SIM card. Gooooo @ricefest, er rice! 8)
  • Was that local MMA Fighter Harris Sarmiento in the chicken fight scene? First Niko Vitale and now him. Casting directors must be MMA fans! Sweet!
  • Danno’s hilarious quote, “Next time, shoot him in the face!”
  • Danno calling Sang Min (Will Yun Lee) the “Asian John Travolta”. LOL!
  • Since when was Bar 35 a private hostess bar in Nu`uanu?
  • Was that an Android app that they used to track Sang’s ankle tracker? DROID! 😛
  • Do coppers really have 28.5 mill just lying around like that in a secret asset forfeiture locker? If so, can somebody make me a copy of that blueprint please? 8)
  • I’ve swear we’ve all had a run in with a niele ol’ lady like that no!?
  • Wasn’t it just off hearing Chin Ho tell Kono “aloha” in that context? Didn’t care for that usage very much…
  • I almost cried seeing da $10 mill go bye bye in the fire. LOL!
  • Loved Na Leo reppin’ it with their Christmas song Kana Kaloka (Here Comes Santa Claus)!
  • How about another former local boy sighting with Mark Dacascos as the evil villain Wo Fat?
  • Alex O’Loughlin. Grace Park. That is all. 😛

In other news…

  • Finally catching up with my show The Sing-Off and watched back the first episode of this new season off my DVR. Woah! Committed’s rendition of Maroon 5’s “This Love” was off the chain!
  • Cliff Lee is heading back to my Phills son! Awwww yeah!
  • Any other Fantasy Football teams out there hurt this week by the Aaron Rodgers concussion dammit!?
  • Top Chef. That is all.

What Ever Happened To…?

August 23, 2010

So the other week, my beloved blunt friend Todd tells me that my blog is boring these days and that I needed to spice things up. He misses how I used to post every day.

Granted posting Where In Hawaii every Wednesday has become somewhat repetitious, I had to remind him that to post that one blog a week, I still had to:

1) take the photo
2) edit the photo
3) collect and calculate the stats from the week before
4) write the blog
5) read each and every comment
6) reply to each and every comment
7) rinse and repeat

Oh, and did I mention that I wasn’t getting paid a penny for this, and that my new position at work (my real job) is owning me?

I wasn’t complaining really. I actually agreed that I should be blogging more, but I just had to let my friend know the dealio, real quick-like.

So here I be. Attempting to keep y’all troops entertained. 😉 With Cat’s shocking announcement last week, it looks like there are less and less of us bloggers doing so dese days das why! :

What Ever Happened To…?
So in honor of Todd, who is single btw (*grin*), let’s do a “What Ever Happened To…” blog today about meeting people/places. The idea behind “What Ever Happened To…” is to let us take a trip down memory lane and take a look back at how things were back in the day. If this goes well, we can continue it with different topics. Today’s topic: Meeting People/Meeting Places.

When I was growing up, cruising Waiks was where it was at. We would go round and round and round on Kuhio Ave – for hours on end – in the hopes of talking to those hotties in da Honda. Some of my old older co-workers used to talk about this thing called socials where clubs/groups from one high school would go out with clubs/groups from another high school. I have no idea what that is, but the concept sounds ingenious! LOL! Anyway, in the comment area below, feel free to post your favorite place to meet people. Maybe even share the story of how/where you met your wife/husband/bf/gf? Lord knows, Todd needs the help. Ahahaha!

Are You Ready for Some (Fantasy) Football!?
On a side note, we’re starting up the WWE Fantasy Football League again. If you’re interested in playing with us, post your interest in the comment area below and I’ll send you the invite. Last year’s rankings:

1) kuya.d
2) BananaFysh
3) mypassionbucketisfull
4) Coconut Willy
5) che
6) bB
7) WWE
8 ) NeedaHobby
9) soogs
10) Stickit

Shooooooooooooooots! Happy Monday y’all!

Flashback Friday: Holiday Memories

December 18, 2009

A-ight peeps, as the end of December quickly approaches, I, like the rest of y’all, will be taking a little break for the holidays. Let’s face it… many of you are probably not reading during this time anyway. 😛

But before that, I wanted to take the time to thank all of you wonderful readers for supporting WWE these last few years (can you believe April 28, 2010 makes 2 years!?). It’s been fun and it seems like we’ve been through a lot together, even though many of us have never met IRL. Gotta love the power of the Internet eh?

I’ve had the pleasure of playing fantasy football with some of you, and have even met a few others in person. Speaking of which, much love to bruddahs hemajang and MakiSushi for their gifts of T-shirts, and bruddah bB for his furikake and stone cookie omiyage (brok’ da mout’ literally!) from the B.I.! Hopefully, I was able to repay the favor to some of you with my movie pass and UH basketball ticket giveaways, local reviews/articles/interviews, and overall silliness of this blog. Hope it helped to play at least a small role in your otherwise busy lives.

Your Fave Holiday Memories?

K, let’s do a quick Flashback Friday kine moment hurr:

* Since the holidays are a special time we share with our loved ones, let’s use this moment to share with each other, our favorite holiday memory/mammaries. 8). Use the comment box below to share with da WWE `ohana. Yes, sorry, that was a lot of “share”s. 😛

For me, I think the most recent memory was making mochi at grandma’s house last year. As Japanee as I am, that was the first time I ever did that. Fun fun!

Food, Family and Fun: The True Meaning of the Holidays

P.S. I won’t completely disappear from your life though! Shucks huh? 😛  I’ve been getting a few Christmas/holiday related forwards lately, so I may be posting those from time to time, to pass your time (to time). 😉 Don’t want ya to forget about WWE after all! 😛

Have a safe and happy holiday season gang! See y’all next year! *wave* 🙂

WWE Fantasy Football Draft Results

August 28, 2009

Another quality post that I’m sure will get 1000s 100s 10smaybe 1? comment below… Riiiight? 😛 But seriously, it’s Friday, so I thought I’d give y’all a break from thinking and send those of you – who are remotely interested in Fantasy Football – into the weekend with some mindless giggles. As you may or may not have known, we’ve started our inaugural WWE Fantasy Football League draft with 10 brave participants…

4 – S Ticket
5 – kuya.d
6 – World Wide Ed

8 – BananaFysh

Are You Ready For Some (Fantasy) Football?

August 17, 2009

By popular demand (from about 3 of you), we’ve started up a WWE Fantasy Football League and are calling all interested playaz. If you’re interested, please email me at world.wide.ed@gmail.com and I’ll send you all the league info.

The good news is that I really suck, so you’re at least guaranteed a 2nd to the last place finish. 😛

In the meantime, can you help a brutha out and post your suggested top 5-10 draft choices in the comment area below? From what I’m hearing Adrian Peterson is the consensus #1. I have the 3rd pick in my work league (there’s a trophy and errything!) and am wondering what kinda gems I could get there.

Other possible things to post below could be your fantasy sports victory or defeat stories, your draft strategies, making a party out of your draft day, your favorite fantasy player, your favorite NFL team, etc.

Yeah, I realize this is a pretty narrow topic and probably won’t get much action below, but it’s a good excuse to further our WWE bonding outside of this blog no? 🙂

The Playaz (so far)

* NeedaHobby

Are You Ready for Some Football!?

September 4, 2008

This afternoon, the defending Superbowl Champ New York Giants host (Colt Brennan and) the Washington Redskins, a game that will kick off the 2008 NFL Football Season. Seventeen plus weeks of beer drinking, score checking, and overall lazy unproductive Sundays are on the horizon. Caaaaaaan yoooooouuuuu dig it?

I can almost hear the collecting groans from wives and girlfriends across the country, as their significant other morphs into a pizza eating, tv watching fatty in front of their eyes!

And even though I still maintain that baseball is the greatest sport on earth (yes I’m one of the few), followed closely by MMA, and then basketball… football has found a soft spot in my heart. I could care less about rivalries or which teams perform well or even who will win the Super Bowl. For me, it’s all about who’s on my Fantasy Team(s)! As long as they stay healthy and perform, I’m G double O D good!

Here’s whatcho boy got. Whatchu t’ink?
