Being part of our ESPN Honolulu means working hard and playing hard. As a result, we’ve collected a lot of great memories over the past 18 years. We miss those times. (Heck, in these COVID-19 times, we miss just being together in the office!) So one again, let’s hop into our ESPN Honolulu time machine and look back at some of our favorite moments from the past. In this collection of images, we relive a visit from an all-time football great, pay tribute to one of Hawaii’s greatest sports announcers, and more!
