Sad story. Happy story.

Hawaii 004-A

Hawaii.

Yesterday, the University of Hawaii lost its eighth football game to make their record 0-8, while its adversary Utah State won its fifth game to make their record 5-4.  Aaarrgh.  What the heck is going on?  Is it the coaches’ fault or the players’?  Maybe, Norm Chow will resign as head coach at Hawaii, so he won’t have to be paid off if he is fired.  He was a great offensive coordinator at USC, but he has failed as a head coach at Hawaii.  Sad story.

David and I think UH should hire Rich Miano, a former NFL player, who was an assistant coach at UH for 13 years before taking the head coaching job at Kaiser High School.  Kaiser won its first championship this month in many years.  Happy story.

In other news, David was offered a temporary job to install an accounting system at a business located in Waikiki.  He would also be required to monitor it.  After thinking about it, he decided against it, because it would hinder his ability to accept full time employment.  He is still receiving unemployment benefits, which will terminate on January 31.

His friends at the gym ask him, “Why do you want to work?  Why don’t you retire and enjoy life?”

Well, he might have to do that if nobody hires him.  Lol.

    Sounds like they need a new coach. These days a lot of places just hire on a contract basis, even the government.

    That was a tough choice to have to make; strings attached to the job just wouldn’t work.

    Sorry to hear about your football team, but glad to know that David is thinking about what he really wants. But I’m not sure I know what that is. Does he really want to go back to work full time? It’s so far from anything I can even imagine these days. 🙂

    Is it hard to remain a fan with a loss record like that?

    David had a hard time accepting retirement. He finally threw in the towel at age 72. I retired shortly thereafter. Tell David, retirement is great. Dianne

    David has to make up his own mind but I sure would have looked carefully at that temporary job. It would have given him a chance to really examine if he wants full time work, and any job adds to a resume, as well as the bank account.
    Hawaii is not known as a great football powerhouse. Could it be the “life is a beach” mentality?

    I know nothing about sports. It is difficult for me to know who to blame.
