Magazine editors recently featured Abubo's comments and semi-au-naturel physique in its annual Sports Hall of Fame layout, along with such current flavor-of-the-month sports notables as Oakland Athletics slugger Jason Giambi and Baltimore Ravens middle linebacker Ray Lewis.

Spam since I was about 14."), taste in Hawaiian music ("Israel Kamakawiwo'ole ... is a really good artist, one of the best.") and if she's ever seen the time-capsule-worthy "Brady Bunch" trilogy of episodes set in Hawai'i ("Uh, no.").
The June 7 issue with Abubo was the one with wrestling's The Rock on its cover.
