Hello. My name's Forrest, Forrest Gump. You want a chocolate?
Using George Wallace symbolic blocking of the doorway to the University of Alabama (11 June 1963) as a time reference, we know that Forrest is named to the college football All-America team in 1963 where he later meets John F. Kennedy. However, the Associated Press announced their All-America team on 6 Dec 1963 - two weeks after JFK was assassinated. Forrest Gump should never have met JFK.
