Hello Rory,

It does sound familiar.  I lived in Tracy for awhile and Reno.  Still have family in Reno and very familiar with Sacramento.  LB Football got off to a rough start this year.  For a pre-season game we played Heelan and lost big time.  Tonight is Homecoming and hoping for a win.  Nice to hear from you.
