  10. Moment #4: Professor Norman Spaulding managing to cite from Seinfeld, The Office, and Muhammad Ali (in addition to author Wallace Stevens) in his speech. 

  11. If you have the fortitude, you could of course adopt Muhammad Ali’s view of his work as your own. Ali famously said: 
     “Its just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.”
