Olympic Champ in Rye

And then yesterday's email broke a local news story…

Whalen time magazine

We have an Olympic Silver Medalists in our midst:

How freakin' cool is that!!  We have a bonafide superstar walking among us…I got teary eyed watching that World Cup final–okay, I cried a bit–and Mrs. Hess was starring in the game!!!  She might be mad at me for sending this, but there was no way I could keep this to myself.  What were you doing in the 90s??"

Could not have said any of this better myself…
