I follow Elizabeth Banks on Twitter. Two reasons: 1) She is hot and you might say I have a crush on her 2) She is funny. I started following her because she tweeted a question that wondered if anyone else thought Tyler Hansborough looked like a llama. He does. Anyway, to get closer to the relevance to Syracuse here: she tweeted that she had a rant about the movie 17 Again on Huffington Post. Here it is:
It's all about teen pregnancy and she makes good points, yada yada yada. Read the third paragraph. Apparently the main character knocks up his girlfriend then marries her and....shuns a Syracuse scholarship! (Possibly for basketball based on some basketball talk in the same paragraph.) First of all, if it was for basketball, someone didn't do their research on SU basketball players and children (Harris, Devo I'm looking at you). Can anyone confirm this? I really have no desire to see the movie, but perhaps this movie needs to be added to the pantheon of films that reference Syracuse.
