WHITE HOUSE (AP) -- President Bush welcomed 15 NCAA championship teams to the White House and got some unusual gifts in return. There was the usual array of warm-up jackets and sweatshirts with his name on the back. But from the men's swimming and diving team from Auburn University, he received a Speedo bathing suit. President George W. Bush: “Thanks for the Speedo! I’m not gonna wear it… in public, that is!” The Pepperdine University men's volleyball team presented the president with a surfboard, which he quickly dubbed "Surfboard One." But the president did have a serious message for the college athletes, stressing that as champs they are role models, and need to set a good example.
