Special thanks to Vai Sikahema, the sports anchor for the NBC affiliate in Philadelphia and correspondent for the NBC "Olympic Zone" program, for making the long drive from Beijing to do a story with fellow islander Natasha Kai. Sikahema (who was born in Tonga), is a former NFL standout who played for the St. Louis/Phoenix Cardinals, the Green Bay Packers and the Eagles. If you are over 30 and love the NFL, you remember his electrifying kick returns. Turns out Sikahema is friends with Kai's dad Benny (and who isn't, it often seems?). He also grabbed interviews with Jersey products Carli Lloyd and Heather O'Reilly (for the New York NBC station) as well as former Philadelphia Charge star Heather Mitts (who worked briefly at the NBC station in Philly). Sikahema, you might recall, recently knocked out Jose Canseco in a celebrity boxing match in Atlantic City. From the shores of Atlantic City to the shores of Qinhuangdao, it's been a busy month for the former Pro Bowler.
