Maui Pineapple Company of Maui, Hawaii, send a thank you card and 100 Maui Gold pineapples to the University of Hawaii football team.

The special pineapple is sent with lots of aloha and gratitude to the Warriors and we look forward to a fantastic 2008 football season.

Maui Pineapple Company asked friends and fans of the U.H. Warriors to sign an oversized card, thanking the team for the "Sweetest of Seasons" and 2007 WAC Championship. Over 100 people signed the card at their booth in Spectator Village at the Mercedes-Benz Championship this past weekend. The card will accompany a shipment of Maui Gold pineapple for the football team.

Hoping to ease January's disappointing events, the card said, "We are Proud of Our U.H. Warriors." Sentiments ranged from "We're so proud," to "Thanks so much" to even a proposal that says, "I love you, Colt -- will you marry me?"

"Over 100 specially hand-picked, premium Maui Gold® pineapples will be sent to the U.H. Warriors team with the unique card," said Gerry Watts, vice president and general manager of Maui Pineapple Company (http://www.MauiPineapple.com). "The special pineapple is sent with lots of aloha and gratitude to the Warriors and we look forward to a fantastic 2008 football season."
