>>> a graduating student at davenport university got a little too caught up in the moment this weekend. take a look. bobby blank was so excited when he received his diploma, he tried to do a backflip. instead, he hit the stage with a big thud there, as you heard. good thing bobby's okay. he says the flip was a spur of the moment thing. ouch. hurts every time. he has apologized for stealing the spotlight, though, from the other deserving graduates. there's one that's going to leave a mark to the ego. 8:08 right now.
