Saturday morning notes

As I wrote in the below note, UW got in around 9:30 or so Hawaii time last night after their plane was delayed leaving Sea-Tac for about seven hours or so Friday.
So we’ll see if that has any impact on the team’s play today.
The weather seems better today as I type this at about 10:30 a.m. Hawaii time. There is blue sky and sun, and no rain at the moment.
But there was a ton of rain last night — enough that many lanes of the road bordering Waikiki were flooded which caused us a huge delay trying to get back to our hotel room last night after we went to the North Shore for a luau, where there were a number of UW fans (and one guy carrying arond one of those “100” bags given out at the Apple Cup luncheon last week).
And the forecast for the rest of the weekend isn’t great with some rain and wind expected each of the next three days.
But there is a ton of Warriors fever around. Tickets are reported to be fetching quite a hefty fee.
And everyone is talking about the Warriors — one of the singers in our luau stopped at one point to wish the Warriors good luck and predict a victory over the Huskies. And a bus we followed for some long minutes stuck in traffic last night had a blinking sign that alternately gave the route number and then “Go Warriors.”
