Man vs. Mild

May 30, 2008

Nope, that’s not a typo. I meant to write Man vs. Mild, not Wild, cause that’s exactly what this show has become to me. Recently, the show’s host Bear Grylls admitted that the situations presented in the show were sometimes not as intense as they were portrayed, but rather elaborate set ups by the production […]

BJ Penn Is Da MAN!

May 27, 2008

On Saturday, BJ Penn’s flying knee knocked the living daylights out of Sean Sherk, making us reminisce about what he did to Caol Uno back at UFC 34. What impressed me more was not the victory over the former lightweight champion. It was his actions after the match. As announcer Bruce Buffer proclaimed his victory, […]

May 21, 2008

Thanks to our time zone, we in Hawaii will be one of the last to find out the results of this season’s American Idol competition today (unless the spoiler boards is your friend), but, for the most part, wasn’t last night’s David vs. David outcome a shocker? All along, I’ve been praising David Cook for […]

Recently it was announced that starting July 16th, A&E’s popular reality show Dog the Bounty Hunter will be making a return to the airwaves for the first time since November… nearly eight months after being yanked from the lineup for racial comments he made on a telephone conversation with his son.

Where In Hawaii is Edward Sugimoto? - May 19, 2008

I really have to think of a shorter, more catchier name for these posts. Biting “Where In the World is Carmen Sandiego” can only take me so far. 😛 In any case, here’s this week’s challenge. HINT: It is again, somewhere in town in Honolulu, Hawaii. Tough one eh? Post your guesses now baby! 🙂 […]

Egan Inoue Wins in Impressive Comeback!

May 17, 2008

In an exciting 59 seconds last night, Egan Inoue silenced all critics by walking right through his nearly 20 year younger opponent Hans Marrero is his return to the ring. On an otherwise lackluster card which included a Sean Sakata knee injury thrown on the very first kick of the night, a Lorenzo Moreno corner […]

Road Rage

May 16, 2008

This morning I had to laugh at myself for being a hypocrite in traffic. No ack though, I bet you all do this too! Anytime there is a known merge from one lane to yours, it is a battle between you and the car next to you. The unwritten rule is to go every other […]

Egan Inoue to Make Return from Retirement

May 15, 2008

OK, working for the cable company, I know this is a bit self-indulgent, but since this blog is supposed to include the latest and greatest in MMA, I just had to plug the X1 Legends fight scheduled for tomorrow night.

Gosh!

May 15, 2008

Is it just me or does goofy/awkward American Idol finalist David Archuleta really not have that much more in his vocab than “Gosh!”? Last night, the three finalists for Season 7 of American Idol (David Archuleta, David Cook, and Syesha Mercado) did the trip-back-home for the show. To me, it gives the truest insight into […]

Nice Guys Finish Last?

May 14, 2008

Last night, we were channel surfing and came across an episode of “A Shot At Love 2 With Tila Tequila.” (This was one of dem shows I gave a chance to, but it lost my interest about half way through the season.) On this night, my attention got caught by a guy holding it down, […]

The Hills – Season 3 Finale

May 13, 2008

So as I was helping my sis set up her computer at her crib last night, I could hear the sounds (without even looking) of the season finale of the Hills (Season 3) in the background as she flipped the channels. I never thought it would get to this point. One day after telling you […]

Robots Don’t Cry

May 12, 2008

Over the weekend, I gathered with the in-laws to celebrate Mother’s Day. We ate, we had a few, we talked story. After dinner, we started watching this interesting documentary on KIKU-TV called 30 Kid, 31 Legs (sorry, best local link I could find), a story on a popular competition in Japan that pits its communities/cities […]
