I loved this...

President George W. Bush stands with members of the University of Alaska-Fairbanks Men's and Women's Rifle Championship Team Friday, Sept. 21, 2007, at the White House during a photo opportunity with the 2006 and 2007 NCAA Sports Champions.

President Bush: Here's the final group of champs. From the great state of Alaska, the Men and Women's Rifle Team from the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. (Applause.)

It is safe to say, this team traveled the furthest to be here. You earned the trip. This is, by the way, the eighth time in nine years that the Nanooks have been the NCAA champions in Rifle. Interestingly enough, guess who they beat? West Point. Anytime you outshoot West Point, you're really good at what you do. (Laughter.)

And so we welcome you to the White House, and thanks for coming. (Applause.)

May God bless you all. (Applause.)

Lots of great pics of the day provided by FReeper silent_jonny here.
