Devils meet another president

Associated Press

9/29/2003

WASHINGTON (AP) - The New Jersey Devils celebrated their latest NHL championship Monday with a White House visit and a chat with President George W. Bush - who kidded them about missing teeth.

In a Rose Garden ceremony, Bush said the Stanley Cup, which was on display nearby, was proof of a team's ``athleticism and desire and drive, a couple of cuts here and there, maybe a missed tooth or two.''

As if to underscore the point, Bush posed with Colin White, a defenceman from New Glasgow, N.S., whose gap-toothed grin is testament to the rough-and-tumble nature of his chosen profession.

Team captain Scott Stevens of Kitchener, Ont., presented Bush a red team jersey with ``1'' and ``Bush'' written on the back. Other than the name, it looked identical to the jersey the team presented in 1995 to then-president Clinton.

Well, you likely didn't hear about this since it was pretty uneventful, excpet for G.W. bugging Colin White about his missing front teeth. Same old, same old. PR garbage...GW likely doesn't know a single player on the team.
