This year's Mesa State Graduation Ceremony was not without it's more "interesting" moments.

As Governor Bill Ritter was introduced and getting ready to give his keynote address, someone sitting in the crowd yelled loudly across the stadium, "You suck Ritter!"

Ritter continued on with the speech and later played down the comment, saying as a Governor he has a lot of critics, including one with a megaphone right there at the ceremony.

About a dozen protesters also lined up outside the stadium before the ceremony, holding up signs criticizing the Governor's policies.
