Commencement, Law Schools

Adding Athleticism To Law School Graduation Ceremonies

You got to have some big testicles to pull off doing a backflip right before you receive your law school diploma.

Look, clearly the only thing anybody wants to talk about today is the heartwarming retrieval of three kidnapped women in Cleveland. Okay, that’s a lie. The only thing we should be talking about is the amazing interview given by Good Samaritan Charles Ramsey who helped Amanda Berry escape her captors. If you haven’t seen the interview, go check it out. Don’t worry, I’ll wait.

It’s one of the best things you’ve ever seen, right bro?

I don’t have a video that is as good as that. I don’t have ten videos that add up to being as good as that. But I do have a guy doing gymnastics before getting his J.D. It’s cool enough. I would definitely eat ribs and listen to salsa music with this guy….

This video went up on Friday from Baylor Law School.

Please tell me that the Baylor guy isn’t going to Biglaw and is instead joining the circus.

What’s the craziest stunt you could pull off before you received your diploma? In college, I sang my own theme song as I walked up, which got a chuckle. In law school, Elena Kagan gave me a dirty look while I was being handed my diploma, which made my parents cry (not really). If I ever got another degree, I’d probably burn it on stage as soon as I got it… since clearly at this point I’d only be getting additional degrees to prove some kind of point about the cost of higher education.

What can you do? Not what would you want to do… what could you actually pull off in your few seconds that would, you know, draw attention to yourself and make the person coming after you feel bad? Let us know in the comments.
