I did not make this headline up
Can we assume that Monopoly money is acceptable?
Credit where credit is due:
@Balas_Wolverine: We're going to miss the movie if Manti and Lennay don't get here soon ..."
are any other girls out there he has slept with in the past three years.
Ariel, Tinkerbell, and Mrs. Claus.
This board has lost focus on what's really important. What does Derrick Green think of all this?
Some funny stuff from Tigerdroppings
since he had never actually met her face to face, wouldn't she just be a "pen pal"? Then he should have said "my pen pal died", which doesn't sound as exciting. So I still blame him.
Also, I would ignore what the AD says. cases in point: Bozo Ohio State President and AD, and everyone at Penn State. Sometimes they are the last to admit the truth.
I heard she died in a kiln explosion (she was going to make him a pot).
This whole Manti Te'o invented a fake girlfriend thing is really great, because it has totally distracted me from focusing on the impending Derrick Greene ammouncement next weekend. Thanks, Mantil.
quite possibly the funniest thing I have seen in years.
I don't get the "catfish" reference. Thx
Most important unanswered questions:
1) What, if any, is the relationship between Te'o and this Ronaiah Tuaisasasopo character?
2) Why did he feel the need to perpetuate the lies after he found out it was a scam?
3) How are the parents involved with this?
Schaap better hit him with these questions in the exclusive sit-down today.
PS - how fucking stupid is Oprah? Sitting on her bombshell for three days...only to be totally overshadowed. Amateur.
I mean in all reality, we know what the lance armstrong interview is about and what will be said in it. "I took PEDs" But we all knew that, that's just how Cycling works.
This on the other hand, is the most confusing shit i've ever followed in sports 'scandals'.
Espn Chicago is reporting out of Bristol that the Schaap interview is on hold.
is that MSU now has ANOTHER game that was not really a loss...."But for the fake rally around Te'o's dead girlfriend, we would have won."
No matter what happened with the girlfriend, his grandma DID in fact die that week.
But 22 year olds often lose Grandmas. So there was more sympathy for G'ma and fake Girlfriend dying the same day.
my only point: The Spartans actually finished the season undefeated.
Nobody has even suggested that until this post.
We don't have publicity issues.
Can't believe Teo still isn't one of ESPN's main stories on their web site. That interview should be with deadspin not ESPN
Whatever the hell happens, bet on this: Tom Rinaldi will make you cry about it on college gameday next season.
is so weird...you couldnt make this up for a movie.
Lose lose situation for Teo....come clean just let it all out and get it over with.
I know people meet on the internet and I know people have long distance relationships, but...you have a long distance phone/internet relationship for 3 years and NEVER MET??????
At some point don't you want to meet this person? Wouldn't you try to meet over one of the summer vacations? I just can't fathom two people would keep a long distance phone/internet relationship going for 3 years and not meet at least once.
I'll say what everyone is thinking. At some point don't you want to get some? Unless.....
I mean depending on how Mormon you are maybe not but don't you think you'd want to know what you're going to be getting when you get some?
OT: Brady's brother, John Hoke is expected to be named the new Chicago Bears defensive coordinator according to John Mullin of the Chicago Tribune. Congratulations.
So I take that to mean Marinelli is out then?
There's talk that Marinelli is going to reunite with Monte Kiffin in Dallas.
"There's always someone, somewhere, with a big nose, who knows, and will trip you an laugh when you fall."
I just find it absolutely fascinating! It gets even more so with all the new information coming to the forefront every day.
Best non-sports/sports story I can recall.
At first I thought he was doing this as a cover for his fondness of dudes,(NTTAWWT) but now I have no idea what to think. I am starting to feel for the kid if he truly is naive enough to fall for the hoax.
I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for the next bomb to drop!
Sorry for the format as this is from my iPhone
Dont fall for it folks.... he and his cousin Tuasosopo contrived the whole thing for a publicity stunt, and then when it got too big, they continued to lie about it, not knowing what else to do. Obviously they were stupid enough to lie at each step along the way and think nobody would find out.
Seems ND just cancelled the Te'o interview today. Must need more time to get that cover story in place.
Soooo, it appears that Notre Dame is something less than the bastion of honesty and integrity that they purport themselves to be? I am over-fucking-whelmed with surprise.
Most importantly, how do we encapsulate this whole thing into a Halloween costume?
No Date. But swear that you brought one.
Just an observation:
The amount of attention being given to this whole situation, which has little to nothing to do with actual play on the field and ultimately boils down to nothing more than "did some guy lie about having a girlfriend that died?", is further confirmation of my opinion that most sports fans are really just soap opera fans. The only difference is that this soap opera is about a large man in tight pants rather than a stereotypical fictional handsome two-timing doctor.
See also: Tim Tebow, Tiger Woods, and pretty much anything discussed on ESPN's assortment of terrible programming.
It has taken you this long to figure out sports are essentially a soap opera for dudes?
Yea! it's like soap opera for dudes, except rea.... o nvm
Manti Te'o is Bret McKenzie??
This is one of the better write ups on this situation http://t.co/p1qnqKnn
That is the ND view that no one else shares. For the ND writer to say that he didn't see how Teo wouldn't be viewed as the victim is absolutely insane. Everyone else is saying the exact opposite.
I love this story so much. Te'o absolutely played this thing up to pull people's heart strings in hopes it would win him the running man trophy. This is so awesome. It makes the running man voters look stupid for admitting that this bullshit story had anything to do with the way they voted. It makes ND look like idiots because, well... yea and it makes Te'o look like a complete scumbag. All the way around it is pure columbian awesome. I love it. I hope it never ends.
2012 ND season: Kill a kid on a crane in a windstorm. Cover up a gang rape. Create a fake person and tell everyone they died to hopefully get your star LB the Heisman. Get crushed in the national championship game. /Flips down sunglasses.
since I found out Milli Vanilli was lip synching.
This is tremendous
