Ummm... Ooohhhkay, so I took a shmall kine hiatus from this blog for the last couple weeks. Did anyone even reconotice? :P But actually July 4th was one holiday so technically, I only took one week off.

In any case, I apologize if you guys were just dying without your WIH Wednesday fix. Probably all four of you: mom, dad, wifey and bebe (if she could read). Actually, I don't even know if any of them check this blog out. Sad no? Haha! Anyway, let's get on with this week's pics!

WAR SAGE!

This Saturday (Friday Hawaii time), Hawaii's own Sage Yoshida will be representing us at the "Deep - Tokyo Impact 2012" (alternate link) event at Differ Ariake Arena in Tokyo Japan, as he takes on MMA legend Akihiro Gono in a shoot boxing (rules) match. (Story 1) (Story 2)

I used to train with Sage at HMC Academy where his father Kevin (the co-founder of the school) would coach. Sage was the most humble and kindhearted guy you would ever meet, but when it came down to train and spar, bruddah was a beast! You could just see that fire in his eyes!

Here's a picture of Sage and his dad Kevin on the flight to Japan and his caption from Instagram. Best of luck bruddah Sage. We are all pulling for you and know you will do us proud! WWE `ohana, please help me send some good vibes to him and his dad during this exciting time in their lives.

"On our way to Japan! Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me, loved me, and pushed me through this throughout my lifetime. I feel so humbled by what everyone had done for me to help me accomplish one of the aspirations and goals I have dreamed about since I was a kid! I'll be home soon too baby @mmhx3, just gotta do my best to hopefully get that win first :) Love all you guys, God bless ! @kickboxerx5 #ThankYouJesus #Japan #ShootBoxing #DefendHawaii #WorkHardToWin #Humbled"

    :cool: Good Morning Errr-One!!! :cool:

    ... hey Ed ... now wait just one second ... I know July 4th was a holiday ... but who says bloggers get holidays too ... it's a 24/7/365 a year job man ... us readers/posters may be on holiday that day, but you sir are on the clock ...

    ... and on top of that, I don't think you write the blog on the day you post right??? ... you must have a blog entry ready at least by the day before ... so you technically had Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday of the week before to get it ready ... ample time to do it ...

    ... so technically, you still had 2 weeks hiatus ... 2 weeks, 2weeks not 1 week ... and I was in serious depression ... couldn't sleep ... couldn't eat ... litterally wondering ...

    ... Where In the Hawaii is fricken Edward Sugimoto? ...

    ... hahaha ... just busting your balls man ... it's summer ... we all deserve time off ... a break ... go to the beach ... picnic ... watch a summer blockbuster ... vacation ...

    ... Have a Good One Everyone!!!
