random deafsports thoughts

Disappointing that most U-21 teams were not on USA’s
competitive levels.

Only Spain and Japan and maybe another nation or two
really challenged USA – but as for the rest of the field,
just forget it.

Cleveland Indians bullpen baseball joke by a fan

Cleveland Indians blew it last week when the manager
and the pitching coach miscommunicate with each other
and called in the wrong pitcher from the bullpen.

A fan said:
The Indians are going to have to hire an interpreter for
Francona and get pitching coach Carl Willis a hearing aid.

Kauai’s first official bicycle race (Hawaii)

newspaper posting

Kauai’s first official bicycle race took place on the morning of July 4,
1927, starting at the Koloa side of the Hanapepe Bridge on Hanapepe Road,
and finishing at the Makaweli baseball field, a distance of approximately
four miles.

More than 50 cyclists entered the race, which was easily won by John
Kauhako (1909-66) of Honolulu riding a racing bike.

A youngster from Port Allen by the name of Ching, who happened to be deaf
and unable to speak, took second place around 300 yards behind Kauhako,
while riding an ordinary bicycle with a coaster brake.
