One Shining Moment

Here's why I wish our classes were filmed:

At the end of the quarter, they'd gather all us 1Ls, pull down the film screen, and play a highlight reel of our classmates' slam dunk answers. In the background we could have some cheesy inspirational song, of course, or maybe a voiceover reading from Vince Lombardi or something. Some of the clips would be in slow-motion (hands shooting up, arms gesticulating while returning the professor's salvo point for point), while later there could be a fast montage of several students each saying a word (in different contexts), put together like:

"Clearly--"

"--the Statute--"

"--of limitations--"

"--had not run..."

"...had not run..."

"...HAD..."

"...NOT..."

"...run."

It would be great. There's some debate about just how long our class's highlight compilation would be. Perhaps we should go for more of a blooper motif. I know I'm good for at least a couple of those. Can you say "reverse leasehold derivative of livery of seisin?" :)
