How is it that every news report on television say he is from San Jose? I know he is from Vallejo, is he the one that does not want the connection or is the media doing this? Once again Vallejo gets short changed.

He was raised in Vallejo, but lives and goes to school in San Jose. The IFOCE asked him where he lives and he said "San Jose", and they've introduced him that way ever since. He is proud of his connection to Vallejo! If you have a chance to see the CBS Sunday Morning piece on him done by Bill Geist you'll see him wearing his VHS marching band uniform and his Mom interviewed right here on Florida St. Just Google CBS News Sunday Morning and go to Bill Geist- July 4th, 2010. It's actually pretty fun.

I waited two hours behind this guy in line at Sacs hotdogs on Springs Road. The line was out the door and down the street. OTHER PEOPLE WANT HOT DOGS TOO!!! I hope he stays in Coney Island so the rest of us can eat. Damn it!!
