      Kenneth Branagh's Henry V on YouTube, or I probably would not have remembered it :)


      We all understand that freedom isn't free. What Romney and Ryan don't understand is that neither is opportunity. We have to invest in it.

        I had written a parody of the famous speech and read it aloud at a UCLA basketball game campout a few years ago.  We were to play Arizona on Valentine's Day.  8-)

        Rather proclaim it, Helmet, through my host,
        That he which hath no stomach for this night,
        Let him depart. His leaving shall be made,
        And his name crossed off the list.
        We would not sleep in that man's company
        That is distressed to camp with us.

        This day is called the Day of Valentine.
        We shall yell and come away victorious
        And stand o' tiptoe when this day is named
        And arise at the name of Lute Olson.

        You will remember this day, and live old age,
        Will yearly with a glint in your eye tell your neighbors
        And say, "Tomorrow is Valentine's Day."
        Then you will strip your wallet and show your ticket stub.
        Old men forget; Lute Olson will forget,
        But you will remember with fondness
        What feats you did this day. Then shall our names,
        Familiar with students as household words,
        Captain Helmet, Major 'Fro, the Sons of Westwood,
        Sam & Dave, Campus Spirit, Sigma Chi and Delta Gamma,
        Be in our minds freshly remembered.

        This story shall the good Bruin teach his son,
        And our great victory shall ne'er be forgot,
        From this day to the ending of the world,
        But we in it shall be remembered -
        We few, we happy few, we band of Bruins;
        For he today that camps out with me
        Shall be a true Bruin; be he freshman or super senior,
        This day shall sweeten his mood;

        And the students in their rooms now abed
        Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
        And hold their heads in shame whiles any here speaks
        That camped with us on St. Valentine's Day!
