So here is a bit of local sports news and I just happen to have a picture of the two of them together. BJ Penn is going to guest star on Hawaii 5-0 and Orlando Duque is recovering following his third surgery.
I was reading BJ Penn’s first blog post on the Bleacher Report since he lost his last fight to Nate Diaz and one of the things that he revealed is that he landed a guest spot on “Hawaii 5-0”.
…I have been back in Hawaii for a while now, but I haven’t been doing much as far as athletics go. This is partly because I think I sprained my finger or something, so because of that I have just been kind of laying low and enjoying life…
…As I am working on this piece, I am on my way to Oahu. I was given a part in an episode of the hit TV Show, Hawaii 5.0, and I will be filming for the next few days on set. It’s really good timing to be out in Oahu because the president of RVCA, Pat Tenore, and his whole family have taken a vacation this week out there, so when I’m not filming I plan on going and hanging out with them…
Orlando wrote on his Facebook page:
Going in for the 3rd surgery in a couple of hours. Almost all the hardware coming out :)
The following pictures is now his Facebook profile and he went on to say:
Surgery went well, thanks for the good vibes :) few days resting at home and hopefully soon some diving
I wish both of these athletes the best during these holiday seasons and may both of them recover soon.
