Great old basketball team shot there Owen and or Chris! Who's the midget on the far left that got cut off some? The "manager"...what a crock. Thanks though, I don't think I could have taken the whole likeness this close to lunch-time. Can't think of too many strange or funny hapenstances from that year....other than Mr (coach) Hample's white shoes....the ones with the white polish running all down the soles and heels....seems like before every game he'd squeeze on more white shoe polish from one of those squeeze bottles with the foam applicator and let's just say quality was not a priority....quantity must have been, but quality....not even close. That was funny, well to me it was anyway. I guess I noticed due to my close proximity to them... being vertically challenged and all.
Remember we had a basketball marathon one year in the high school gym?
Thanks Phil for the nice words to all the organizing folks here....I echo them, but don't think I could have said it better....I have got some sportfishing fiends in Kona...u ever go out of Honokohau Marina ? Mahalo my friend! Having Aki or Aku for Thanksgiving I'd guess?
Hey Owen, do they have slugs in France...it was France qui? May have to ask Monsieur Thibbault...(pronounced T-bo wasn't it)...U may know my next question then!?
Sure is a pretty island shot u posted! How's the fishing there?
Thanks again to all the organizers! I hope to be able to make it.
All the best,

While in Swarthmore recently, noticed the old scoreboard which served for High School football games is looking a little the worse for wear... looks like it needs to come down and get hung in a museum somewhere before it completely disintegrates. Saturday morning game days in the Fall were always a blast... who remembers scrambling around under the bleachers trying to catch the little plastic footballs that our cheerleaders were tossing into the stands after touchdowns ?
