What about the plane tickets to get there? Should we just assume that they're included? Of course, we'll be staying with you.

Will you pick me up at the airport????

If I provide my own transportation to HNL and have my own hotel, does that give me a better chance of winning? And I know Solonor -- that should count for something.

Hell, I know him too! Pick me! Pick me!

Ahem. This tells me something about the "click-thru" rate I have; there hasn't been a Hawai'i Islanders baseball team here since 1987 or so, which could have been learned from reading the page I linked to. ;)


That being said, you're all welcome to come watch the Hawai'i Islanders arena football team later this year. ;)

Hehehe. I read the post.

When I play solo leagues in OOTP, I always create a Honolulu Volcanos team, along with an Anchorage Kings. :)

The baseball quiz is too easy! :P

Darn, I was hoping to have some baseball to watch on my HNL layovers! I guess I'll have to wait for Arena Football.
