Congratulations to LeBron James for winning the NBA’s Most Valuable Player Award. If you’re a serious LeBron fan, be on the lookout for his “What the MVP” LeBron X shoe in the near future (which he’s wearing right now in Game 1)!
The reigning UFC Lightweight Champ‘s Nike Free Trainer sold out in a couple of days, which was Nike’s first MMA athlete’s signature shoe release. Jones also gave Sonnen an ass-whooping
The Miami Heat’s amazing 24-game win streak has been full of highlights, including last night’s 27-point comeback win over the Cavs. LeBron got a new celebration dance, a new poster of Jason Terry and a chance at history. They’re now just 10 wins away from surpassing the ’71-’72 Lakers for the best streak ever in the NBA. Good luck Heat!
As memorable as this streak has been, when I hear the term “streaking,” it somehow always brings me back to this scene from Old School.
This is for all you Bodyboard haters out there! Shout out to bruddah Evan Fa and Surge Bodyboarding Magazine for keeping it real after all these years!

The term “you should have been here yesterday” pretty much sums up these photos sent to us from our Hilo friends El Kellum and Miya Tsukazaki. Sunday afternoon the road to the summit finally opened back up with fresh snow and blue skies for all to enjoy. For me, it just wasn’t meant to be as I showed up prematurely on Saturday only to wait 3 1/2 hours at the visitor center hoping the road would open, which never happened. Lets just say I was a little disappointed that rangers were so overly cautious!
Just when it seemed as if there was hope, another storm came through on Saturday which kept the summit road closed
Sunday afternoon was a whole different story
I’m guessing this is why the rangers didn’t want anyone up there in Saturday’s conditions. Buddy was lucky that his wife was able to eject herself before the car tumbled down the mountain. Next time he will be sure to put the parking brake on before stepping out to take a picture.
On the positive side, it made for a nice kicker!
There is a Podagee Horseshoe tournament in the making. To learn more about the game, the rules and the scoring, check out the Tumblr page.
Good luck and Godspeed to Laie’s Manti Te’o who will be leading Notre Dame against the University of Alabama in the BCS Championship tonight. This is the senior linebacker’s last game with the Fighting Irish, and the bookies have the Crimson Tide giving 9/1/2 points tonight. Kickoff is at 3pm Hawai’i Standard Time, and we’ll be rooting for Manti and the Fighting Irish!

The Detroit Lions are getting hot. Their QB Matthew Staffford has found his mojo, and the offense is starting to take on “juggernaut” status again. Along for the ride is Week 10′s Mr. Hiamoe: Ryan Broyles. Taking over for an injured Nate Burleson, Broyles has immediately produced, with double-digit points in 3 straight weeks. Developing a nice rapport with his QB while the other starting WRs rest their injuries, Broyles has a good chance to keep that streak alive. Owned in only 14% of NFL.com leagues, Broyles just may be celebrating again this Sunday.
Last week: We took a break last week, but took a loss with Stephen Hill in Week 8. Sanchez targeted Hill in the red zone, but couldn’t connect. I blame Sanchez.
Mr. Hiamoe record: 3-2-1
That shot of him sitting Indian style is so sick!
When you get into the red zone, size does matter. That bodes well the 6’4″ frame of Week 8′s Mr. Hiamoe: Stephen Hill. Going up against a top-5 Miami run defense, the Jets may be forced to throw more often than they would like. Miami is also somewhat susceptible to the pass, allowing the 8th-most points to opposing WRs. Stephen Hill has recovered from his hamstring injury, and looks to regain his early-season form (he had 2 TDs in Week 1). While Mark Sanchez is no Tom Brady, I still think Stephen Hill has a decent chance to hit paydirt. Owned in only 10% of NFL.com leagues, you could do worse than taking a chance on the big guy this week.
Last week: Jonathan Dwyer went off with 122 rushing yards, and if you get bonus points for 100+ yards, there was even a cherry on top. Winnah.
Mr. Hiamoe record: 3-1-1
A starting RB is hard to find on the waiver wire these days, but this week you need look no further than Week 7′s Mr. Hiamoe, Jonathan Dwyer. With injuries to Rashard Mendenhall and Isaac Redman, Dwyer is thrust into the starting lineup against the Cincinnati Bengals, who allow the 6th-most fantasy points to RBs. While the offensive line has had its problems, the matchup is right, and he’ll have his opportunities to shine. Dwyer had flashes of brilliance in the preseason before being diagnosed with turf toe in Week 2. If he can return to pre-injury form, look for Dwyer to capitalize on his opportunity this week.
Last week: Vick Ballard flopped in a major way with just 25 yards rushing, and 17 yards receiving. The Colts got down early, and the running game never had a chance to get going. Loss.
Mr. Hiamoe record: 2-1-1
You never want to see anyone get hurt in the NFL…unless you play fantasy. So people who can pick up Week 6′s Mr. Hiamoe, Vick Ballard, should be ecstatic to see starting Colts RB Donald Brown pop up on the injury report this week. With Brown set to miss 2-3 weeks, Vick Ballard by default is the next man standing in the Colts’ backfield. With a matchup against the New York Jets, who allow the 8th-most points to opposing RBs (in PPR leagues), this is a great time for him to inherit the job. Still owned in only 7% of NFL.com leagues, he’s worth add and starting as a flex option if your dealing with the bye-week blues.
Last week: Domenik Hixon caught 5 balls for 55 yards, a very pedestrian performance. Using PPR settings, I would consider any points in double digits to be a success, especially given the sleeper status of these players. Since this was so close, we’ll call it a draw.
Mr. Hiamoe record: 2-0-1
