Former Warriors Vince Manuwai, Ryan Grice-Mullins and Jesse Sapolu took part in a read-to-me program today at Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children. Colt Brennan showed up, too, but because he had a cold, he was not allowed to meet with the children.
The event was part of the book drive in which Barnes and Noble customers made donations. The drive raised enough to purchase 1,100 books for the children.
It’s nice to see former players recycling aloha in the community. Also, former KGMB anchors Liz Chun and Kim Gennaula helped coordinate today’s event.

A work stoppage would impact Manuwai, who is entering the final year of a five-year contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Manuwai, who has played eight NFL seasons, would like to play at least five more years. Following a suggestion from the players’ union, Manuwai saved his last seven paychecks as a cushion against a lockout.

Esperanza Spalding? C’mon now. Really? Really?
Of course, I did feel sorry for Christina Aguilera tripping. “Have a nice trip, see you next fall.”
