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!

  1. This is my favorite sports blog now! Some of my friends said they want to go to this college now.

  2. I found where I want to go to school now! And I can still be into sports. HPU sounds like it rocks! I love your comments on the shark god being Pele’s brother. I like your myth pages too.

  3. It is always great fun learning about these other schools. I plan to attend HPU now, thanks to this. I clicked your link and fell in love with them!
