GREETINGS FROM HIS HONOR

The team received an official welcome from the Mayor of Yverdon-les-Bains this afternoon when he visited the hotel before lunch. Joining the party was Mayor Remy Jaquier, Vice-Mayor Paul Burkhardt, and Jean Daniel Carrard, the Minister of Police and Sport. Mr. Jaquier read a statement to the group - in English, if any of you were wondering - in which he predicted that the U.S. would win on Wednesday. If that doesn't get the Swiss team motivated, we don't know what will. The team thanks Mayor Jaquier and the entire town for their hospitality. From what we've seen, it's a pretty cool place. But don't take our word for it - have a look.

p.s. is that balcony where they are standing high? Because that railing looks rather small, and looks like you can fall over it...
