Congratulations Chad Owens!

Please help me send a HUUUUUGE congratulations and Aloha to Bruddah Chad Owens for his AMAZING 2012 CFL season with the Toronto Argonauts! First, with individual honors, breaking the all-time, single season all-purpose yards record (previously held by "Pinball" Clemons), becoming the first player in professional football to record back to back to BACK seasons with 3,000+ combined all-purpose yards, and then, winning the league's Most Outstanding Player award! Then, he scored the opening touchdown en route to his team's 35-22 home win over the Calgary Stampeders in the 100th Grey Cup championship game... All with a broken thumb!!! Bruddah is UNREAL and deserves all the best! Here's his post-game interview.

Chad contacted me (VH07V) through Instagram complimenting the brand. We chatted a bit through email and I eventually asked for his address so that I could send him some apparel as a Mahalo! He was nothing but nice with CHOKE aloha so it makes me soooooo happy that all this success is coming to him. I wish I could take credit for his success this season (like the "power of VH07V" gave him good luck or something... LOL!), but it was all him! Hard work pays off!

Here he is supporting VH07V during a press conference earlier this season.

Brisbane Australia, Here we come!

As mentioned last week, I have been invited (as a "social media influencer") on board Hawaiian Airlines' inaugural flight to Brisbane Australia departing this week. Like some of Hawaiian's previous inaugural flights (Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, Seoul, New York City and Sapporo), there will be a fair amount of hoopla surrounding this flight and I'm pretty excited.

Catherine Toth, Melissa Chang and Edward Sugimoto (Photo Courtesy: Brandon Suyeoka) I'll likely miss posting this Wednesday's "Where in Hawaii" blog, but there will still be posts galore being made during the two night trip to Queensland. If you're interested, you can follow along with all the Brisbane merriment through the following links. Rumor has it that Melissa Chang and Catherine Toth will be going on this trip as well! Awesomeness!

    Ed, the shirt needs to be red with yellow lettering. :)

    Cool! Hope he can get back to the NFL for a few seasons. For all he has done this season, he only(?) gets paid $150K. Mighty Mouse deserves more than that.

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

    ... hey Ed ... congratulations to Mr. Chad Owens!!! ... you can just tell he's a hard worker and dedicated athlete ... he deserves all the success that's come his way ...

    ... thank goodness for the CFL ... it's a great alternative for those who have talent and drive ... better to have a chance for success there than nowhere ... I'd think others like Mr. Colt Brennan would jump at the opportunity ...

    @Coconut Willy: ... yeah Mighty Mouse does deserve more ... but another shot at the NFL seems remote ... I think he's talented enough with drive and a great attitude ... but the NFL is like an exclusive club ... it's a little more about who you know, what school you came from, and how you fit the prototype player profile ... because in the NFL there's always someone better ... bigger, faster or stronger ... and sadly, I think the stigma of his ball handling skills during returns will stick with him ... even if he's improved since his first try in the NFL ...

    ... but we can root and hope he does get another shot ...

    ... Have a Good One Everyone!!! ...

    For sure, but it's not clear if that's on his radar at this point. He's happy in the CFL. I'm hoping to get an interview with him and I'll be sure to ask him. :)

    Count me as one of those, but either way, he's a beast who deserves to play and get paid accordingly.
