One of my favorite college football teams is the University of Hawaii. No special attachments but, hey, what's there not to like about anything that comes from the place that sends us Aloha Wear and macadamia nuts. And I loved the old nickname, Rainbow Warriors, which was, well, more colorful, and I still have a rainbow vintage T-shirt from a family trip there years ago.

Now just the plain-old Warriors, they play that wild run-and-shoot and as many of you know, they're 11-0 after beating WAC rival Boise State in a shootout Friday night. Only a win over Washington stands between Hawaii, ranked No. 12 at the moment, and a BCS bowl bid. Now, we won't get into which bowl they may wind up in. That's way too complicated. But we can offer this look at the football's team haka, a group chant popular among Pacific Rim sports teams. We have both the Hawaii football version and, as a special treat, the holiday version after that.
