Celebrity Status in Syracuse, and That’s Where it Matters

Many athletes are well known around the world, and are treated as celebrities in the media as they are watched carefully for mistakes.  Where these athletes are held as legends rather than just a famous face, is in their hometowns and cities of the teams they played for.  LeBron disgraced Cleveland, but Akron, Ohio will never hold it against him.  This is why special events that welcome home their athletes are great public spectacles.  Friday October 14th featured the welcoming home of Syracuse University Alumni like John Wallace, Jonny Flynn, Wes Johnson, and Andy Rautins for a Midnight Madness exhibition to kick off the 2011-12 season.
