Heikoti Fakava, RIP … Frustration

May 1st, 2012

Saddened to hear of the death of former Moanalua High School and University of Hawaii football star Heikoti Fakava. Fakava, who played for the Rainbows in the late 1980s, was one of the toughest college running backs I’ve ever seen.

Fakava was No. 72 in the Star-Bulletin’s series on the top 100 football players in UH history in 2009. Here’s the feature on Fakava that Jason Kaneshiro wrote for the series.

Sometimes athletes, coaches and fans do stupid things because they lose their cool in the heat of a tense game, or because they are frustrated over an outcome.

Amare Stoudamire punched a fire extinguisher glass container after his New York Knicks lost to the Miami Heat in the NBA Playoffs on Monday. Now he’s probably out for the series.

Where does this rank in the sports world of self-inflicted problems?

    Who was the pro lineman that had a meltdown the night before the Super Bowl? Doesn’t get much bigger than this

    Barret Robbins … went to Tijuana the night before the game and missed the game.

    How’s about Ryan Leaf? Didn’t create a problem, he was the problem.

    Orland Brown was the lineman for the Browns who got hit by the ref’s flag and totally lost it. Sadly, Brown passed away at the young age of 40.

    Didnʻt Frerotte headbutted the endzone wall and was injured after that?

    Didnʻt one of the Grammaticas torn his ACL while jumping in celebration?

    Boise St. lineman (Hauk? aka Glass Jaw) lipping off to Blount and getting promptly dropped with a straight right hand.

    That was such a sweet post. We don’t have a lttlie girl, but I don’t see why I can’t apply tis to a lttlie date with my lttlie guy. I guess you could count our weekly outings the library followed by lunch at Mickey D’s as a date. I ‘d love to have a lttlie girl just so I can see my husband with her.

    Thanks for these pointers. One thing I should also believe is the fact credit cards featuring a 0% rate often attract consumers in zero monthly interest, instant approval and easy internet balance transfers, however beware of the number one factor that will void your current 0% easy street annual percentage rate and also throw you out into the very poor house quickly.
