Though it doesn't really affect me (a non-employee), I'll be supportin' the cause and taking a temporary break from bloggin' over hurr. Worry not, the exciting (and sometimes not so exciting :P ) adventures of World Wide Ed will continue at www.world-wide-ed.com. Everyone rejoice. ;)

On a serious note, whether the "cause" continues or not, I owe it to the good people at the Advertiser to return sooner than later so no worries, I'll BRB. K!

Fave Five Friday - Hawaii Athletes

August 22nd, 2008
By



With all of the Olympic hysteria going on (and the lack of comments from my Kauai related posts :P ), I'll switch it up a bit for this week's Fave Five list to include an Olympic star from Hawaii: Bryan Clay. Clay captured gold in the decathlon this year, the last American to do so since Dan O'Brien did it in Atlanta in 1996.

Anytime a local boy (or girl) does good, it makes me proud to call Hawaii my home. Here's my current list of fave Hawaii Athletes.

  1. BJ Penn - the ultimate bad @$$ in MMA. His stand-up is wicked and his ground game is off the chain. He is regularly mentioned when a "best pound for pound fighter" debate occurs and is easily in the top 10 of best MMA fighters of all time. The best part is that he stays humble and always recognizes Hawaii in everything he does. True local boy who remains true. You gotta love it!
  2. Colt Brennan - Bruddah turned this town upside down with the announcement of his returning, the leadership in our undefeated season and potential Heisman run. Now with his drafting from the Washington Redskins, we will continue to root him on.
  3. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson - this athlete has gone "Hollywood" on us, but we still love him nonetheless. He still does the shaka and mentions Hawaii periodically.
  4. Jason Elam - Anytime you can use a guy from Hawaii on your Fantasy Football team (and he does well no less!), it's golden!
  5. Bryan Clay -you can't argue the title of "world's greatest athlete" for this Castle High grad. Doing in big on the International Level. Mad respect!

Who's yours?

Part I | Part II |  Part III 

Goodnight my darlin', it's time to go (doo doo doo doo doo)...

Alas, we've come to the final series in EATS! (at least for this week! ;) )... Aww... there, there. Don't worry *hug* There'll be more... :P

Before I get even sillier, let's get this party started... (RIGHT)!

First stop is Kountry Style Kitchen in Kapaa for breakfast. Get here early as it's crowded. I ordered my favorite (hash and eggs) and the lady got the garden omelette. Both came with their scrumptious cornbread. Check it out yo:

That evening, we stayed at Princeville (mahaloz for the upgrade guys!) so of course we had to hit up the cute little city below called Hanalei. We settled on Postcards Cafe. The lady liked it there (and so did I for that matter... at least for the atmosphere), but my dish was ridiculously too miniscule, especially for the price!

Seafood Sorrento - $24

A divine seafood pasta with fish, shrimp and scallops, oven-dried tomatoes, braised organic greens, goat cheese, red onions and garlic, sauteed in a light Chardonnay sauce.

On our last day on the north shore, we headed to the popular Kalypso for breakfast. Eggs Benedict and, of course, an Acai Bowl were on the menu for us that morning...

Blackened Mahi-Mahi Benedict (whole) - $14.95

Hope you've enjoyed this series of EATS!... Send me some feedback below and let a brutha know what you like and don't like about what I blog about please. I'm still trying to figgah out what y'all want me to do with this little space on the Internet and how I can make it better/more interesting for ya. Shoots!

Continuing with our Kauai theme, this week's "Where in Hawaii" Wednesday photo is coming to you from the beautiful Garden Isle of Kauai. I won't make it as difficult/obscure as some of our past photos, but I'm hoping it'll still be enough of a challenge for all y'all.

So without further ado, here's this week's photo:
