A Favre(ite) Moment

August 22nd, 2008
By

Kinda long story but gotta explain fo' get da "feeling" - I'll try and "jet" it along...

As I was warming up da bike last Friday ready to go home from work, I geared up and saddled da seat. (Funny, how come I can touch da ground now?) Hmmm. Balance da bike upright. (Eh! How come BOTH feet can touch da ground now?!) Take a look at da rear tire....

Flat. Sheesh kabobs! Supposed to be Feel Good Friday!

Wassap Wit Dat!

So I inspect da tire. Nothing. Roll it forward, check it out. Nothin'. Wat, some punk wen rock plug my tire? Nope. Some fricka' wen jus' let out da air? (no trust cause had my bicycle stolen last year and my bike pump stolen a few months ago). Maybe.

Wat I goin' do now? I no like call Da Wife (who went home real early cause she had some comp time) fo' come all da way back into town through traffic jus' fo bring all my tools in da truck. I wondah if I can make it to Lex Brodie's? All I need is air fo' now.

Vrrrrooooom. No can.

A couple co-workers pull by and ask if I need help or a ride.

"Nah. Can handle."

So I'm thinking thinking thinking. Oh! Lexus next door should have a portable air compressor. Walk on ovah and ask one if they get one. Da guy behind da desk nevah seem too interested. Den I hear one voice behind a wall.

"I think we have one. Eh, you're the guy that rides the red R6 right?"

"Yup. How you know?"

"I see you ride by everyday. I ride the blue R1 (pointing at his ride)."

"Cool."

They let me take the compressor back to the bike and as I'm pumping air into the tire, I try to find the puncture, if any, but couldn't. The salesman pops up out of nowhere and asks if I found the puncture. Nope. Then he asked if I checked for "rocks". Nevah have. Then he says, "you hear that?"

No.

He finds a little puncture in the tread channel as air is hissing by.

Ok, jus' gotta fill up wit air and ride to da nearest Checkers to get a plug kit. No problem. As I get onto Nimitz I'm thinking, "geez, da puka stay in da channel, there's nothing slowing the air (like a nail head), I may not make it. Wat kine Feel Good Friday dis!?"

K-mart was coming up so I pull in and picked up one of the last two kits. Whew. Ok, air now. Fo' some reason, the closest one I could think of was Waiakamilo Chevron so I head there.

As I'm at da Bob's Bar-B-Que intersection I catch Firestone in da corner of my eye and notice they're still open (it's past six already - almost closing time fo' dem). Great! I'll stop there instead - plus if I need additional tools, they 'geef um.

I pull up to the side and notice a mechanic working on a car with a customer. No biggie. He finishes up and asks if I needed any help.

"Yup. I can borrow some air?" (looking at him sheepishly)

"Sure." (looking at me funny kine)

Looking at each other again as he's bringing da hose I glance down at his name tag sly li'dat,

"Brandon?"

"Coach Lance?"

Holy moly! I'm always ecstatic to see former players. Wat's even mo' amazing is dat I coached him about seven years ago. He's now one year out of high school, working and going to school trying to make something of himself.

As I'm plugging my tire we begin to talk. Let me jus' say dat wen I had Brandon he wasn't the "athletic" prototype. He was about 5'5 or 6", probably pushing 200lbs, not agile and looked like a teddy bear. I remembah his group cause most of them exemplified "heart". They were talented but it was their character dat moved me da most. Always willing to help each other, bus' their okole's, respectful and everything in between.

I still use their stories and experiences as examples for my players today. Let me share a quick one.

It was a playoff game and you could feel da tension from our team as they couldn't loosen up. I believe it was the third inning wen there was a high foul side pop fly towards the first base dugout. I remembah thinking it was out of play wen I see Brandon, playing first base, on his horse going for it.

I was lining up da ball and da fence (thin plastic orange ones) and it was going to be close. Next thing I know he's diving face first ovah da shoulder (THE hardest catch in ANY sport) right through da fence......... and MAKES DA CATCH!

WTF! Da whole team went wild!

They did loosen up aftah dat - we still lost - but I retell "Da Catch" every year.

Jus' as I was finishing up da tire, I was telling him how proud I was of him doing da things he's doing now - being independent, working hard professionally and striving fo' his goals in college.

He then thanks me fo' all da stories I told them and the lessons I've taught him because he's carried it through his time in high school - especially in football. He was mentioning dat da discipline and respect he's developed helped him do da things he does today.

I almost broke down right there (teary eyed as I write dis now - fo'reals).

Every season I do da Favre - contemplating whether I continue coaching or not - and while I still see many players that come back to visit every year, none touch me like da moment I had last Friday. I sincerely believed dat if I jus' could truly motivate and help one player it'd be worth it.... it was.... and then some.

So today I was thinking, wat if I nevah have one flat? Wat if I called Da Wife and waited? Wat if I caught a ride home? Wat if da salesperson nevah like help? Wat if I went to Checkers? Wat if I drove all da way up to Chevron?

I would have missed dat one moment.....

 

SHOUT OUT: Mahalos to Tony Thairathom at Servco Lexus used cars (right next to The Honolulu Advertiser Building) for helping me out with the air compressor!

 

DA PIDGIN WORD OF DA DAY! -
(as quoted from Da Kine Dictionary & Pidgin To Da Max… wit a Braddah Lance twist)

CHICKEN SKIN
(you no can pronounce dat, something wrong)

Haole Translation: Goose bumps

Use: Wen you get da "chills", or one ghost past through you

Sentence: “Wen I kiss Da Wife, I still get chicken skin.”

Sentence: “You can see da chicken skin on Bryan Clay getting his gold.”

    Good way to start our weekend ! Thanks.


  4. munch:

    aurite BL makes it all worth it eh? i think like dat too...what if i did this? what if i went this way instead? what if i left 10 minutes later?....da way i figgah, some things are just meant for you to experience to give you Chicken Skin.
    one of my experiences that is kinda sorta like yours is from when i was in college...we used to mentor these elementary school kids who were considered "underpriveleged" and they could sign up to have one of us as a mentor kinda to guide them in the right direction & hopefully help them to aspire to want to do more than just barely make it through high school. anyway, one day i wasn't feeling so great & just wanted to go home after my classes but i kept thinking about my 3rd grade friend who was always so excited to see me even if was only once a week. besides, it was almost the end of the school year too so i decided to suck it up & drive out there to meet with her. that day her mom was a little late picking her up so i waited with her until her mom arrived, and that day she got out of the car :shock: she kinda look tita-ish so i thought maybe she not too happy :???: but den she came up to me, introduced herself and told me how glad she was that she allowed her daughter to participate in this program because now she always finishes her homework, she enjoys being in school more, and she even talks about wanting to get good grades so she can go to college and "be like her college friend" then she gave me this biiiiiig hug & i wanted to cry but i think i was just in shock that someone (besides us involved) felt we were really making a difference.
    and to think, if i just went home that day i might not have ever been able to hear what her mom said to me.

    ok make me remember & fo real feel good friday! :-D

  11. Scott:

    That's great to hear Lance. Also, I graduated one year ahead of Brian Clay from Azusa Pacific University, never knew the guy but I'm sure proud of him.


  12. 808Dad:

    Yo Braddah Lance,
    I was thinking the same thing as you. Should I return to coaching(Volleyball). I’ve been away from the sport for about four years raising my own kids and helping out with their individual sports. Now that my daughter is six and ready to start participating in team volleyball I tooked the plunge and jumped in. At first I forgot that I’m also four years older and I too had to work out just to keep up with the kids. I swear all of them have Energizer batteries powering them.
    It’s been about nine months now and although there have been good times I also have had my share of bad ones. Mostly dealing with the parents of these kids. From the start I’ve preached to the kids that they have to respect everyone on the court. No matter how talented they are or lack thereof. I stressed that everyone who comes to practice makes a positive decision to do so and they have something to contribute to the team and no one on the team will show any disrespect to any player.
    One practice I see a new player has joined the team. She’s quite small and looks a little different. As she gets closer to me I notice that she is a “little person”. My first thought were, no way she can’t be serious. This quickly changed as her parents introduce themselves to me and also Ashley. Her parents tell me they just want her daughter to participate in a couple of practices. They go on to mention that volleyball is their daughter’s favorite sport to watch. They have had season tickets to Wahine Volleyball for years. Not saying a word to the other player I just tell Ashley to join the line up and start warming up. After doing some ladder drills we start working with the ball. It was a site to see the other player encouraging Ashley on and telling her the proper way to bump and set a ball. Not once did anyone have a negative comment. Ashley did attend the next practice with the same results and she did learn to bump the ball properly. I never saw her after that. Just last week I get a letter in the mail and three tickets to the first Wahine game on Aug. 29th. Her father writes what a great thing we did for Ashley and if we could join them at the Stan Sherriff.
    Now that’s why we coach!


  13. NKHEA:

    Good 1 BL, jus 1 and waz all worth it :D guess u still going be coaching 4 awhile. Funny today started off bad for me comp modem out, surf junk...no can check out WWD, MLD, and ODD :( :cry: so off to work I go, but then everything start happening fo da good, job ok, found somting for 1 job that I thought I lose, wen pickup new mondem then check blog get your story :) rest of day all good now.

    btw I no go Panic's u safe fo now...guess u body surf.....oh oh wanda wat QPP going add to the body surfing :) :lol: u no her mine stay in da gutta :lol:


  14. opso:

    whoa....dass one good story BL. fo real now....feel good friday! :D

    so rewarding yeah? now knowing that you played one influential role in helping to shape Brandon's life for da bettah. auright....


  15. hanapaa:

    @BL, munch, B, 808Dad: Tenks for the feel good stories! Changed my day, for sure.

    We all are! Homecoming parade fo' all our hometown medalist? Hmmm...

    808Dad:
    I too had to work out just to keep up with the kids.

    Dat's a good thing... right? :wink:

    Not once did anyone have a negative comment.

    You'd be surprised by how keiki will pick up on "special circumstances". Those who are respectful are a lot more tolerable as well as helpful than those who are not. I've mentioned in prior blogs too dat I've dealt with gamut from ADHD to special needs to even a deaf keiki and it's always amazing how young players can adapt. It was nice of you to let her practice as well. I've had a few "practice" inquiries as well but baseball is different - I had to tell them no in fear of injury, no protection (gear) and not to mention liability.

    btw 808Dad, E Komo Mai to WWD!

    ...so off to work I go, but then everything start happening fo da good, job ok, found somting for 1 job that I thought I lose

  17. BananaFish:

    Wow, BL, that was an awesome Feel Good Friday story!

    Hopefully nobody come around my cube to see my puffy eyes. ;)

    "No, no, I not crying! I was, uh, uhm, uh . . . tired, and rubbing my eyes! Yeah, dat's it!"

    Oh, gotta add, there are no coincidences. That was all in da plan.


  18. Ocean Lover (Answering BL's questions):

    "So today I was thinking, wat if I nevah have one flat?"

    Then you'd be FIGHTING TRAFFIC going home dat day all pissed off like the uddah days. But that day you probably went home and didn't even mind da traffic.

    "Wat if I called Da Wife and waited?"
    Then she woulda come pick you up......but because of the TRAFFIC she had to fight to come get you, she woulda been all pissed off and then you'd have to take her to dinner at DK's again and you'd be out a couple hundred just because of that one phone call. ;-)

    "Wat if I caught a ride home?"
    If you caught a ride home, you'd be MOA PISSED at the traffic as you NOT DRIVING, but you see more of what's going on. If you driving you gotta keep control of both your vehicle and your temper.

    "Wat if da salesperson nevah like help?"
    You'd never ever buy that LEXUS that you promised your wife and would buy her one PRIUS (not that there's anything wrong with that)

    " Wat if I went to Checkers?"
    Then Pogo would be pissed that you didn't ask him for help......ho, showing my age dea!

    "Wat if I drove all da way up to Chevron?"
    Then you woulda missed out on meeting Brandon again and couldn't share such a fantastic, heart warming story.........ya DUMMY! (Rememba, uncle hea to teach you the RIGHT WAY ;-) )

    Great weekend everyone!

    OL


  19. HNL2LAS:

    And touching up on JuSaMee's, 808Dad's and munch's mention about parents, Brandon's parents did something fo' us dat I thought was supah cool. I don't know how she did it or if it's a common thing but she got me and anoddah coach a certificate of commendation (I think dat's wat it's called) for our years of service from the then Mayor Harris. It was notarized and personally sign and everything. Dat is/was wat da MLC Crew would say.... Neat-o. :grin:


  24. snow:

    Great story, BL... thanks for sharing that heartwarming story with us! (sniff... made me tear up!) And thanks munch, B and 808Dad, for sharing your stories with us too! Feel Good Friday is ON!

    Sometimes things are just meant to be... I always believe that things, whether good or bad, happen for a reason. You thought it wasn't going to be a Feel Good Friday... but your co-workers were nice enough to offer help... the guy at Lexus helped you out with a compressor and finding your leak... you got the one of the last kits at K-Mart... and, to top it off... you saw Brandon and found out what a great influence you were in his life! Turned out to be a pretty great day, eh? :) It's nice to hear about people to take the time to make a difference!


  25. NKHEA:

    My sincere apologies! We've only been hearing about da local medal winnahs and I did even recogmanotice our other fellow islanders.... so yes, an Olympic homecoming is most well deserved for ALL our homegrown Olympic athletes!!!


  27. Ynaku:

    Bruddah Lance, I not ashamed to say, I'm a Sentitive guy too. It takes a man to show his feelings. No shame cry. sniff sniff. OK make macho again. :lol:

    I truly enjoyed all of your experiences. Just got back from fighting traffic and crowds. Took wrong road to Costco off Nimitz and had to make U-turn behind Home Depot. Then everybody trying to give me directions, and they don't even know this place, so wat happen, I miss the entrance to Costco and gotta go find place to turn around. :twisted: Ho I tired already and not even 11:00.

    I go do more shopping. Came here for my nephews wedding and my wife volunteered to make salad and namasu so gotta go buy all da ingrediments. By now, I mo tired, hungry thirsty for one beeg cold one :) and it's Friday traffic. :( So I figa my son brought his laptop. Let see if I can hookup to one hotspot down here in Why-key-key by Beachwalk. Oh yeah get! First site I go? Where else but WWD. And dis is one story that melted all my stress away. Den I read da others and I sitting down and really enjoying my stay on the 12th floor of this condo. I feel so good, I think I might go Yardhouse for dat cold one. Oh yeah, dat would do it. But my kids coming back and I gotta make dinna tonight. Some Steaks, Salmon, Shrimp. Poke etc. Hey get plenty, come ova and bring da cold ones.

    BL, keep it up. You know how it is? You planted da seed and now you got to see it grow. You neva know how much influence kindness is especially to those who don't think of themselves as being special. My hat's off to you. I raise my bottle to you bruddah. :)


  28. bamboohouse808:

    Thank you all for your stories on this Feel Good Friday. I get big time chicken skin action going on right now. I can only hope that my kid(s) will be lucky enough to have coaches and mentors as dedicated and passionate as you folks. What a great way to start the weekend. Have a good one everybody.


  29. snow (wondering why opso and BF were laughing... ??):

    Ynaku, you living it up in Waikiki, eh? You stay in da humungous room on the 12th floor? Gotta love it! Enjoy!!


  30. snow:

  31. BananaFish:

    Watch out snow!

    BL going throw his nuts at you!

  32. Shauna:

    BF and snow: You mean the nuts that snow is first throwing at him and the one opso needs to retrieve with his ball plucker? :)


  33. Tankobu:

    You one real good man, Braddah Lance! Your kids lucky fo' have you as their coach.

    I get chicken skin when I read one feel good story like dis one.


  34. Ynaku:

    Snow: yep we on the 12th floor. Missed da firework tonight cause I was across the street checking out the crowd at Yardhouse. Too packed tonight plus I'm full after dinner. Da wife's uncle dropped off some Ama Ebi Shrimp. I made scampi and dat guy is SWEET! I did overcook my boneless shortribs from Costco. Hard to cook for people that like well done. If was me, 5 minutes each side in the broiler and out. Made Asparagus and mushrooms. Gotta join QPP cause now goin get stinky split stream for sure.
    I did my kitchen duty tonight. Wedding pahty tomorrow night then hopefully get to checkout the gelato place Sunday.
    Yep I'm enjoying this vacation. Have a great weekend all.


  35. HNL2LAS:

    Whoops, I missed out on mentioning B and their story! Thank you for sharing! I'm sure that the lady you played for was smiling because you were good, and she was happy and enjoying your music! "no hurt fo do someting good fo peoples", soooo true....


  36. uncle jimmy:

    BL, let's face it.. when you're put in the luxurious position of coaching or teaching or having chance to make a difference in the lives of others (esp. kidz) and you take advantage of it by working hard and passing along good stuffs, a couple of t'ings wen happen..

    one, whether you know it or not, da positive chain of events multiplies as people pay it forward.. (dey catch da hint from you)..

    two, because it goes out and aroun' in so many directions, it's bound to come back around to you sooners or laters..

    so, da ansa to da what if? questions is that even if you turned dis way or dat, you'd eventually cross pats wit' your own enahgy anyways..

    geev um da gas, coach!

    uj


  37. hemajang:

    well said uj...eh, one philosopha but you right.


  38. hemajang:

    BL, what you really should do is work on raising a family and coach your own kids...don't mind me but I'm sure you got relatives asking da same. In fact, my married son from the mainland visited last week and wife ask him point blank..."eh, when you guys going get kid?" He only shrugged... gotta ask, right?


  39. Ynaku:
