I hope everyone is enjoying a happy holiday season. I’ll be taking a few days off, but will be thinking about the biggest local sports stories of the years 2000 through 2009, and I’d like your input. There sure is a lot to choose from, ranging from UH football to local golf phenoms Michelle Wie and Tadd Fujikawa to historic happenings in Hawaii high school sports to MMA and BJ Penn. There were plenty of great achievements by teams and individuals from here.
Tell me your favorites and why. It truly was a monumental decade.
