    I just took second place at the Furniture City Forensics Tournament Original Oratory with this speech. First ever forensics tournament. I hope you like it- without this forum, I definently wouldn't have been able to write this.

    Yep, that story at the beginning is actually true.
    Thanks for enabling me to write this,

    About the best and most eloquent summation I have read. Kudos to you! This would be a great document to send to congress-critters, newspapers, etc. (giving you credit and with your permission of course)

    Great work but I'm not sure I would include the dubious "behind every blade of grass" quote.

    As great a point as that supposed quote it makes I would stick to solid established facts.

    I wasn't aware that quote was dubious :confused:
    Feel free to circulate it- but please do list me as the author. I'm not concerned about glory or credit, but things spread around the internet like wildfire, and I'd hate for the NFL to think I was plagiarizing.
    Thanks for the positive responses.

    I've come across a lot of great Oratory speeches while researching, but none that have been good enough for me to join a forum I'd never heard of on a topic I'm not interested in just to leave a comment.
    Brilliant work.
