Comment: What a terrific name for sports teams! At first glance the logo might make you think they were called the Sharks instead, but I love the shark imagery because it reminds me of one of my favorite figures in Hawaiian myth: Kamoho, the shark god. He’s the chief of the seemingly dozens of lesser shark deities in the Hawaiian Islands. Part of the fun comes from the fact that Kamoho is the older brother of Pele, the goddess of fire!
