The Haka

I am not sure if Hawaii still does this or if it hs been banned by the NCAA,

There was a news story last week about high school teams (don't know how many, but sounded a bunch) are doing this war dance/chant during games, willing to take a 15 yard penalties to do this.

I thought it was rather interesting, consideringg all the fuss being made with the Indian name & references being uesed & now phased out, at least in college.

I think that this is one of those things that in a very few seasons you will be wishing it goes away. (kinda like the "who let the Owls out" cheer)  It works great if you are the "All Blacks" from NZ.. But it looks silly coming from just about everybody else…

The Haka is really intimidating. You should check out a video of the all blacks doing the haka on youtube. I dont think a bunch of kids from S.Fla would look as cool doing it.
