Aloha, Take 2

So not without a few minor complications, I’m finally getting on a flight in a few hours. To get in the mood, I just revisited the vintage footage of Pop’s stellar game in 1961 against Roosevelt. I got an extra kick out of his jock-busting move on his 44-yard punt return, which starts at 00:39 in the clip below.

*Trip out alert: here’s a still photo of the same play that showed up in the newspaper. Pause the video at about 00:49 and compare it to the photograph. Then, at 00:50, you can see photographer Jack Matsumoto in the white shirt on the sideline.

The brunette cheerleader in blue touching the ground at 01:16 may be Mom. If not, she’d be one of the others in yellow. She was the songleader of the squad; I’ll ask her which color she wore.

    Cool footage! That is so nice to have a family treasure like this around. It’s amazing.
