White House Press Release:
[PRESIDENT BUSH]: Welcome to the White House. We’re glad you’re here. Like, have you noticed a lot of security around here? It’s because the Vice President heard there were some Ducks around. (Laughter and applause.)
These Ducks are awfully mighty. It’s such an honor to welcome you. I love welcoming champs to the White House. And these are clearly great champs. You know, the playoffs have got to be tough at that time of year, after you’ve played so long, and your legs are a little tired—except you romped through the playoffs. I don’t know if many Americans understand that, but this team went 16-5 through the first four rounds; became the first West Coast team in the NHL to win the Stanley Cup. And that’s a big deal.
