Uh. Hey. Hello everyone.
I know this one has nothing to do with UCLA athletics per se but it has everything to do with who we are.
I remember 9-11 like it was yesterday. I saw the plane from Dulles streaking straight to the Pentagon from the roof top of our offices after watching in horror the collapse of the Twin Towers. I remember the feeling of being in total siege with bomb sniffing dogs and Humvees all around Washington.
This feels incredible. There is a sense of relief. There is a sense of joy. The feeling I have inside tonight is the exact opposite of what I felt on 9-11. What is also surreal is that today is the 8th anniversary of "Mission Accomplished."
I will let you all get back to regular programming ... but chant with me.
USA! USA! USA!
Oh and GO BRUINS.
