tony@samoanews.com

The second week of the seventh AYFS Football Season in American Samoa featured three lopsided victories during the triple-header that kicked off week No.2  – last Saturday at the Veterans Memorial Stadium in Tafuna.

 

It was almost a shutout weekend for the three match ups – the first two games resulted in shutout wins for the Steelers and the 49ers, and in the final game of the day the Bears almost sent the Buccs home empty handed with a 34 - 6 win.

Troy Polamalu, the recently retired Pittsburgh Steeler with the incandescent smile and wild hair, will attract the most attention. He’s the only inductee well known outside of small circles of fans. But each of these men—Alopati “Al” Lolotai, Charley Ane, Rocky Freitas, Vai Sikahema and Polamalu—embodies the intimate, if painful, connection between football and Polynesian culture.



'THREE WISE COUSINS' RACKS UP MORE THAN $121K AT BOX OFFICE

When Stallone Vaiaoga-Ioasa set out to make his film Three Wise Cousins, he wasn't after acclaim, box office records or even any recognition – but he's got it now.
 
The independent grassroots film made a massive $121,767 in the box office in its first four days.
 
The film follows a young New Zealand-Samoan man called Adam (Neil Amituanai) as he heads to the motherland in a bid to impress his crush Mary (Gloria Ofa Blake), who only likes "real" Pacific Island men.

Dole Fresh Vegetables, Inc., is temporarily suspending operations at its Springfield, Ohio production facility, and is voluntarily withdrawing from the market all Dole-branded and private label packaged salads processed at that location.
