'The last name, by the way, is pronounced

...doo dah, doo dah...,


i'll stop now

Tight end Ho also works out of the backfield . . .

He's one of the guys that when his parents had to pay $10 to have his name on the back of his jersey, he came out WAY ahead.

Gimme an "Oh"
Gimme an "Oh"
Gimme a "mah"
Gimme a "nah"
Gimme a "wah"
Gimme a "new"
Gimme an "ee"
Whaddya got? Um..........

I understand that his younger brother plays baseball...Hoomana, hoomana, hoomana - SWING!

Almost as bad as this guy's.

I hope it's 'Smith', too.

He's 'making' a name for himself? How many more letter does he want to add?

After a while, you get used to the fact that no one will ever be able to properly pronounce your last name. If I'd been a Mafia boss I'd have gotten no respect. It would have been, "Yes, Don..(awkward pause) Steve."
I'd bet this guy answers to anything that starts with, "Michael...(awkward pause)."

If he were a sumo wrestler, he wouldn't have to make a name for himself. They would give him one, like Takamiyama, Akebono or Konishki.

C'mon, the coach probably said something like "We need a big-name receiver" and was misunderstood by management.

As if the Rams' announcers don't endure enough pain as it is.

"Nui" just means "much" or "great," so he's a great Hoomanawa, which means egg man of war, or something. Does he fish for Humuhumunukunukuapua'a ?

I thought it meant "Snooki".

I wonder if he ran into Brandon Spikes during the Pats game?

Oh Oh Ho Ho

Smith, huh? So could we call him judi for short?

That could get a might confusing. Bruce it is, then.

Sorry, I used a wrong word ...

That could get a might mite confusing.

No, that's still not right. Let's try again ...

That could get a might mite bedbug confusing.

That's better!

Careful Dave. When I was in the Army I learned to never piss off a polynesian. They are big boys, who can bounce Airborne Rangers off of walls.

Fortunately I wasn't Airborne, I was a friend of the polynesian that the Airborne pissed off. The enlisted club at Ft. Gordon was never the same after that night...

When this guy was at Illinois no one even tried to say his name. To his coaches, radio and tv guys he was just oh-oh.

Sure, the polynesians get all the press, but what about all those mononesians, huh?
