Woke up late and wandered down to Waikiki Zoo. Jane flat refused to go in though thanks to the presence of reptiles therein. In particular, there were ‘evil alligators’. Ended up at the cinema instead and then discovered one of US TV’s unlikeliest icons - The Schwab [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howie_Schwab]. In UK terms, he’d be the equivalent of Statto [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statto] or John Motson [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Motson], but rather than one sport, he is a walking stat book for every American sport, and ESPN’s Stump The Schwab [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stump_the_Schwab] proves it. Mind you, the idea of besuited businessmen trying to out-stat the sports-jerseyed sport addict seems a little unlikely at any time of the day.
