The Best Graduation Speech You Ever Heard
Today, we want you to take a trip down memory lane and tell us who was the best graduation speaker you ever heard and what advice they offered. Our favorite is the late David Halberstam, whose simple message to me and my fellow graduates was "never let them intimidate you." Short, simple and straight to the point. Who was yours?
How about Ali G. At Harvard in 2004...
I don`t remember my graduation speech. Something about blah blah blah, I was too ripped and too busy talking to my friend to care. But, I do think a speech from Andy Kaufman would have been great. I always wanted to have George Carlin speak at something important of mine also.
Wow, I guess Brian Billick is like me and "willingly" watches Grey's Anatomy with his wife, as that "chicken is involved, the pig is commited" line was used on the show this year. Glad to know he's using great source material....
Jon Stewart at his (and my) Alma Mater, William & Mary 2004.
My highschool graduation speaker was going to be Rick Flair before a bunch of parents caught wind and pitched a hissy fit. I think "Woooooo" would've been the best advice ever.
it (chicken/pig) is rather old. Grey's Anatomy didn't make it up
Conan at Harvard...
George Washington U, my school, didn't have one this year. I think that's the best one ever.
Shaq at LSU in December 2000. With his freshly printed LSU degree in hand, he joked about his "degree in crayon biology."
One of the best players in school history and NBA history with an awesome sense of humor (seen that breakdancing video from the All Star Break?)
But thanks big guy, those of us that really earned our degrees appreciated that!
steven rushin at marquette was death. it was like listening to an unfunny clown
I second Conan at Harvard.
Definitely Ali G at Harvard....Big Ups to mah main MAN!!!!
a speech by morgan freeman or james earl jones would be sweet, freemans is soothing and jones is powerful
Brian Billick are you kidding me, you failed in originality.
ALI G CAN'T BE TOPPED
Bono at UPenn in 2004
