Destination To Paradise:

Tonga, officially Kingdom of Tonga, Tongan Fakatuʿi ʿo Tonga, also called the Friendly Islands, country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. It consists of some 170 islands divided into three main island groups:  Tongatapu  in the south,  Haʿapai  in the centre, and  Vavaʿu  in the north. Isolated islands include  Niuafoʿou ,  Niuatoputapu , and Tafahi (together known as the Niuatoputapu, or Niuas, island group) in the far north and ʿAta in the far south.

Hawaiian Legends & Mythology:

Tangaloa (Tongan Mythology) was an important family of gods in Tongan mythology. The first Tangaloa was the cousin of Havea Hikuleʻo and Maui, or in some sources the brother or son or father of them. He was Tangaloa ʻEiki (T. lord), and was assigned by his father, Taufulifonua, the realm of the sky to rule.

Wikiwiki Sports:

Graham Is Pau
University of Hawai’i Football head coach Todd Graham resigns with pressure from Hawai’i leaders, Rainbow Warrior players and their families. Graham’s decision to leave UH comes after recent allegations with multiple counts of emotional abuse, cultural desecration, showing a lack of the Aloha Spirit towards the players and staff members. Which, falls under Chapter 5 of Hawaiʻi Revised Statutes: Hawaiʻi Law of The Aloha Spirit.

The search for a head coach replacement has begun. Ties to Hawai’i and an understanding of Hawaiian, Polynesian, and Local culture and lifestyle is essential.

Las Vegas Raiders End Season
Even with all the unexpected distractions from losing their head coach, multiple players in trouble with the law, adjusting to a new home and environment, and on-field injuries the Raiders managed to make the playoffs as a 10-7 wildcard. Unfortunately the season ended in the first round with a tough 26-19 lost to the Bengals.

The Flame Continues To Burn.
