"I can remember when I was the governor of Texas, I used to work out in the weight room. And I can remember the [University of] Texas girls telling me, they said, 'Don't worry, governor, we'll be the national champs.' They forgot about Coach [Sue] Enquist's team. The UCLA Bruins are a great ladies' softball team. It's a tough field, and they had great pitching — a very competitive team. And I want to congratulate you all for being here. I asked if there are any that are going to be on the Olympic team. I think three or four hands went up who will be representing the United States in Olympic softball. I pity the teams they play."

President George W. Bush, honoring the UCLA softball team for its 2003 NCAA title during Spring Sports Championship Day, November 17.
