Congratulations Shane!

Congratulations Shane! Your Maui Ohana is proud of you.

Shane Victorino, a 1999 St. Anthony High School graduate, carries the World Series trophy while wearing a lei he received from his father, Mike Victorino, after the Philadelphia Philies beat the Tampa Bay Rays 4-3 in Game 5 on Wednesday.

Shane Victorino went 1-for-4 in the game, with a two-run single in the first inning on Monday before rain postponed play. Victorino finished the postseason with a franchise-record 13 RBIs.

I guess the Spam Musubis worked :)

Maui Hawaii Suppa Man

sung by 3 Scoops Aloha

Told is the tale of the mischievous one
who fished out all the islands and captured the sun
his deeds and tasks i will unmask
so that you’ll understand
that before there was a Clark Kent
there was a Hawaiian Supaman

He fished out all the islands with a magic hook
there would’ve been more but somebody looked
in blue morning sky, the sun he entwined
to slow down his flight, so kapa could dry

Mischievous, marvelous,magical Maui
hero of this land
the one, the only, the ultimate Hawaiian Supaman
Oh Maui, Maui, Maui, Hawaiian supaman
Oh Maui, Maui, Maui, Hawaiian supaman

The secret of fire was locked somewhere in time
So when the Ahi died in the Hula Kuke, no way to re-ignite
So off he goes in search of those who hold the information
So that fire could be used by all the future generations

He found out the Alae held the fire connection
But his plan of deception fell short of perfection
With no other choice he had to get mean
So he squeezed Alae’s got throat until she screamed the secret.

E hana kou i ka hui
(repeat chorus)
