Be sure to pack your WHITE shirt for the Sugar Bowl. This message hot off the press from the University of Hawaii Athletics website:

The Allstate Sugar Bowl is more than a week away but Head Coach June Jones has already called his first play. And, this one is for the fans.

Jones is calling for a “White Out” in the UH sections and is asking all UH fans in attendance at the Superdome to wear a white shirt. Georgia Head Coach Mark Richt has called for Bulldog fans to wear black shirts.

“This is something that both the UH and Georgia fans can have some fun with and it will be unique to our game,” Jones said. “UH fans can wear green shirts around New Orleans during the week to show their UH pride and then sport a white one at the bowl game.”

The UH football team has been designated as the visiting team and will wear its white jerseys. Georgia, designated the home team, will wear black jerseys.

“We’re in favor of whatever will help motivate our team and rally our fans,” Herman Frazier, UH athletics director, said. “This is an incredible opportunity for our entire state, so we want everyone to enjoy themselves and revel in our team’s success.”

Also, in doing a little research on Weather.com, looks like the temperatures in New Orleans during Sugar Bowl week will be in the 60s during the day and 50s at night. Pack accordingly.

GO WARRIORS!

I have to constantly remind myself that there is still Christmas to be celebrated before we head off to New Orleans…not to mention New Year’s Eve to enjoy before the big game between the UH Warriors and Georgia Bulldogs! Everyone is getting really excited to leave Honolulu to head to NOLA!

My pal Regan just received our game tickets in the mail the and we’ll be cheering on the Warriors in section 616, row 15. Pretty solid seats considering the price we paid. I’d much rather be along the sideline than stuck in the end zone.

Everyday I’m finding out there’s more and more Hawaii people I know going up for the game. There’s going to be a real feel of Aloha Spirit injected into NOLA that week. With all of the hype, people are even contacting me via this blog to share in the excitement. A guy by the name of Lester S. who will also be traveling to the game left the following post today:

Hi! Came across your website while searching for people going to the Sugar Bowl. I’ll be there as well. I’ll be blogging my journey. I’ll try to keep an eye out for you and say I if we run into each other. See my blog at http://sugarbowlbound.blogspot.com.

Have a safe and fun trip and see you in New Orleans! Go Warriors!

The countdown to kick-off continues. If you happen to be heading to the game, I’d love to hear from you.
