My friend just posted this little vid on youtube a few hours ago. It’s a short clip of me diving maui.
Going back home to Maui is so much fun. I’ve been flying back more than ever lately, and each visit home just makes me want to return there for good. I got to spend Thanksgiving in Makawao, and it was incredible. The trade winds were up and the water was dirty, but my dad, Christy, Garrett and I decided to go for a quick shore dive anyway. All my next door neighbor wanted me to return with was a big nenue so that he could make some poke, and all I was hoping to find was a kumu or two. Low and behold, we were both in for some luck.
Today marks the beginning of the 25th annually Maui Invitational at the Lahaina Civic Center. Eight teams from across the U.S., including the #1 ranked team UNC, are poised to battle it out over the next few days to be crowned the 2008 EA Sports Maui Invitational winner.
First tip-off starts at 10am local time when St. Joseph’s of Philadelphia squares off against Texas of the Big 12. UNC plays local favorite Chaminade University at approximately 4:30 today.
Lahaina.com would like to congratulate one of Maui’s own and former St. Anthony High School graduate, Shane Victorino, on a job well done winning the 2008 World Series.
Victorino plays for the Philadelphia Phillies who beat the Tampa Bay Devil Rays 4-3 in Game 5 of the World Series. The Phillies won the series 4-1 and Victorino was instrumental in the championship run with his timely offensive hitting, exceptional speed on the bases, and defensive prowess.
