Ah, yes, from KO's brighter days.

Seriously, I know what you're asking about. When he anchored "SportsCenter", he would often read promos of upcoming live telecasts of football, hockey, etc. He would sometimes finish reading the promo with, "Be there. Aloha."

It's a tribute to classic promos of "Hawaii Five-O" when reruns entered syndication. The "Five-O" promo would start with a Jack Lord introductory voiceover -- followed by scenes from the upcoming rerun. Jack would then tag out with the line -- wait for it -- "Be there. Aloha."

K that makes sense. I always hear it on the podcast and re-run episodes of Countdown, it cuts to a graphic just before he tosses to Rachel Maddow and he says "Tune in every night at 8 Eastern for the live edition of Countdown. Be there, Aloha" or something to that effect.
