As the winner of this year’s Indy 500 – and an American at that – Boulder Sam was granted a brief meeting with President Bush today. Sam knows that when you meet with a Head of State, you either:
1. Give a Gift
2. Receive a Gift
3. Sign Terms of Surrender
So Sam decided to give Bush one of his old helmets. It probably wasn’t this one.
"Hopefully, if he decides that he needs to go fast, he'll be properly equipped anyhow" - Sam Hornish
The Commander In Chief might actually use the helmet, considering his exploits on bicycles and Segways.
