Transcript Hawaii-bound Bleacher Creatures say Aloha Aloha! "Pack your bags, we're going to a Luau!" This phrase seemed very unlikely in November, but when the Cougar Band was able to make the trip, we were approached by some of the "Bleacher Creatures," as well as the residence halls' block seating committee about the possibilities of obtaining some extra seats on the band plane. Thanks to generous donations and Band Director Robert Mayes, Hawaii was only seven hours away for five extra- dedicated Cougar fans. None of us were going to let the opportunity of a lifetime pass. We arrived at the University of Hawaii and checked into their residence halls. As luck would have it, my luggage was lost, but I was in heaven! We held a pep rally on Christmas eve for the team on Wakiki Beach and, afterwards, Craig, Bobby, Terry and Gary decided to check out the night life by catching a comic show at one of the beachside pubs. Those of us at the university made banners for the football game which was at 10:30 am, Hawaii time. We hardly had time to mourn the defeat because we had reservations for a luau just one and a half hours after the end of the game. Our final day in Hawaii was spent sightseeing and beach hop- ping. We ate a McDonalds breakfast high atop Diamond Head, then proceeded to snorkle at Hanauma Bay where we saw moray eels and myriads of colored fish. Craig almost had his head bitten off by a sea turtle. We then journeyed to the other side of Ohau to body surf just two miles down from the "World Famous Pipeline" at Sunset Beach. Our day capped off with dinner at the home of a friend of Terry's. Terry also received a phone call that night informing him his wife was going into labor in Dallas. The only thing we could do from seven hours away was hope that his child waited for Daddy to return. She did. Leaving the rainbows, tidy-bowl-blue water, tan women, palm trees and fresh air was incredibly difficult, but a belated Christmas with our families was waiting back in Texas. By the way, we've decided to open a Marble Slab on Wakiki Beach. ► Michael Millo Michael, Towers Area Coordinator Terry Bridges, Assistant Director of Residential Life, Bobby Brownstein, and residents Gary Peat and Craig Oakman made the trip with the band.
