Missed the Super Bowl . . .
February 6, 2012 - Harry Eagar
. . . for about the 10th or 15th year in a row, and this time not because I was working.
Ron Youngblood used to say that Super Bowl Sunday brings out the bike riders because the roads are clear, but I drove from Makawao to Wailuku to Makawao to Keokea to Makawao without seeing ary one.
With about two dozen others, Tricia and I went to the concert of Celtic Magic (Philip and Pam Boulding) at St. Johns church, and it was more memorable than most football games. It was also about the most relaxed and informal show I've been at, very Maui or perhaps very Irish.
The Bouldings come to Maui each January to play, give lessons and sell Philip's harps and dulcimers. Worth looking forward to next year, especially when Philip plays slack key Celtic harp, as inspired by Keola Beamer.
The place looked quite Irish, too, as the mist rolled over Keokea.
The only discordant note came from a football fan who showed up at halftime (when the Super Bowl was over) and wanted to know if he could get half off the ticket (a reasonable $15 to begin with). I think he was serious, and if so, it was a low rent kind of thing to do.
CORRECTION: I apo;ogize for getting Pam Boulding's name wrong. i heard it as Ann.
