Outstanding. Good job Bro Sikahema!
Vai did not list the current Tongan players on each team, I wonder how many on
each? As for wearing blue, the Y should provide them with beautiful blue BYU
shirts...on that subject, everywhere I look, there are displays of Utah colors,
shirts, hats, etc., but very little of BYU stuff up here in Ogden-Roy-Layton
area. At Harmons grocery store, in the new Dick's sporting goods, Utah has way
better stuff, and more of it, for sale. I have protested, but where are the Y
Thanks Vai for your posts. The story about the burglar is hilarious - in
hindsight. BYU's secret to success is interwoven with Tongan players. Spread the
word - Provo is safe.

Great article. I always enjoy Vai's insights.
Helpful hints for those who cannot spell dignitaries, but instead spell it
"dignataries:"The webpage tells you when you spell
something wrong. You have to correct the spelling yourself.The word
"dignitary" is in the title of the article.The word
"dignitaries" is in the first line of the article, and in the
third-to-last paragraph.You can Google the word dignitaries.I hope this helps.
If Vai's byline is on it, I read it. Great article as always. And the same
losers as always never seem to get it.
It's always a delight to read Vai's artcles.
Leave it to the Y-haters to turn an inspirational and heartfelt story into
divisiveness.Sounds like Minister Uata experienced the American
Dream....Tongan style; tales of self-made men like that - especially one of
character like him - are always a treat. I'm glad he'll finally be able to see
his grandson play - and hopefully, team playing host to the DIGNITARIES will
Vai is just one of the great story tellers around.
One of the many things I like about your stories, Vai, is that you are always
fair and honest. You do not play up the positive or downplay the negative, but
are a straight shooter. Thank you for your honesty and integrity. I love your
articles. Keep them coming.
Sometimes the offhand comments are the funniest: "My grandmother talked
grandpa into hiring me for ship security because I was so big and there's no
Vai great story again. The stories about what happens on the Islands enriches
the understanding of the gospel and the connections to BYU & Utah Football.
Miki Kelli was the first of many from the Islands whom I've meet. Your cousin
Lenard Wolfgramm was in my BYU Ward. Your Mission to South Dakota Rapid City
Mission is also part of my story. I follow BYU Football where ever I live. This
year's game doesn't feel the same. The stories you provide give great insight.
Thank You Vai
Fangupo is going to be a beast in this game. Id have him in on every down. Can
you imagine his motivation to play for his grandfather who traveled half way
around the world to see him play?I feel sorry for the little sisters
from the north. This could get ugly.Fangupo is thnking... Sorry for
stealing that food grandfather, but thanks for coming to watch me take this long
haired Wynny the foo's head off.Cant wait for kick off.
Rise and shout.Great article. I hope Fangupo has a
Vai,You are one of the best writers the Dnews has. Keep it up.
@ CoachWinWa..... You were so totally right about it getting ugly.. I wonder where the cougs players went at half time????54- 10 is an
ugly loss for the Independent sisters down south. Isn't that how you put it
So sorry that Grandfather had to watch the Y lose so badly. I am a BYU fan, and
have been for a long time. This was one of the most amazingly awful games I
think I've ever seen them play. I hope they can regroup and do better the rest
of the season. They have SO much talent there!And Vai, I loved to
watch you plan, and now I truly enjoy your articles. You have a great talent for
writing. The best to you!
OOPS. Just as I clicked on the button to add my comment, I notice I had typed
"I loved to see you plan," and I meant to say, "I loved to see
you PLAY!" I'm glad you have had a very successful career after college and
pro sports. You represent the Church very well.
LOL @ Loni's story! That sounds like grandma :)Great article Vai.
