Happy Birthday Lissa Kreisler!! WEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Let's get in the mood for more celebrating--our Olympic athletes! See the Opening Ceremony tonight at 7:30 on NBC. The get excited!  You have a number of locals going for the gold, silver, and bronze. The one closest to my heart is swimmer Scott Weltz, who was on my son Jeff's swim team, and whose name is still emblazoned on the record holders' wall at the Los Paseos swimming pool in Santa Teresa. Scott's a great guy, swimming the Men's 200m Breaststroke. And check out our US Table Tennis team--they're really promising!
Go LOCALS for the USA!

Here's your list of LOCAL Olympians to root for! In BOLD are the ones who are from here...
the others are transplanted scholars. GO USA!
