San Jose's Scott Weltz qualifies for the Men's 200m Breaststroke
What a day at the Olympics it was yesterday! I know I wasn't the only one getting teary-eyed
when our Women's Gymnastics team stood, full of emotion while our Star-Spangled Banner
played. Emotion was possible higher watching Michael Phelps' mom as he collected another
historic Gold...and when they finally had the chance to hug---OMG!
Tonight you'll see our hometown guy, Scott Weltz swim. Scott's a kid from my neighborhood
who swam on MY kid's swim-team! He's been looking great, and tonight he could take the
Gold...or Silver...or Bronze...or just make us proud swimming his heart out for Team USA!
Below is a pretty comprehensive list of Bay Area Olympians. Some have already taken medals
this week, some have tried but faced elimination. Some are yet to compete.
And what's with all the Medal-Biting? Get a laugh out of these photos I assembled for you!
Here's your link to see the silliness!
