Backlund's speech is Knute Rockne-esque in its levels of inspiration. "All right, Mr. Backlund, for the rest of us here on this planet..." Vince responds. Backlund conflating the JFK assassination with the date of his title loss is spectacular, regardless of whether it was intentional. A marching band comes out playing woefully out-of-tune instruments, as Vince is incredulous. Segment of the year, possibly segment of the decade.
