What an awesome day. Spent the first part of the morning with the NFL as emcee of the 2009 NFL Pro Bowl Ohana Day. Met Aaron Francisco at the NFL Kickoff Rally at Kapiolani Park, nice to see him again at the Ohana Day festivities. I know I'll see him Monday at Windward Mall. Aaron seems like the rest of his Pro Bowl Counterparts. They don't really "work " the microphone when they do interviews. But it's really evident that Aaron really wants to use his status to encourage the kids to do well. He is an "Ambassador" player with the Pro Bowl meaning he is making a lot of appearances, and there is a real sincerity with him. You gotta be happy with someone from home, who is out making a difference on AND off the field.
Small talk with Kurt Warner, but a very nice guy. We picked fans out of the audience, and they were able to come down, run down the field and catch a pass from him. Who can say they ran out and caught a pass from Kurt Warner!
Shook hands with David Archuleta. It's been quite a while since he was on American Idol and that phenomenal season ending finale, but he STILL looks surprised by people that want his autograph; by people that still cheer him on and remember his outstanding performances week after week. It will be nice to hear him sing Star Spangled Banner, and more so for me to introduce him on national TV tomorrow.
