Dudley's Postcard: Day One

Hawgs Illustrated reporter Dudley E. Dawson sends us a postcard from Hawaii where he is covering the Arkansas basketball team's progress in the Maui Invitational. Here is his postcard message from Monday.

While I knew my wife Tana couldn't possibly have a bad working vacation here to cover the Razorback basketball team in the Maui Invitational, I had no idea I would be hanging out with actor/singer Kris Kristofferson.

Hanging out may be a little over-the-top description but I looked up Sunday and there was one of the stars of Semi-Tough (and 82 other TV movies and films) picking up his luggage at the same American Airlines baggage carousel as mine and asking me if I knew how the Dallas-Detroit NFL game had turned out - no doubt since I had a Cowboys shirt on.

The rest of Sunday consisted of a nice drive along the coast, a littile seafood and some hard sleep. Enough to be rested up early Sunday morning and out on the beach before the four tournament games began. The guy behind me in the pic kept offering a three-hour tour, but hey, I saw Gilligan's Island and I'm not playing that.
