The Manti Te'o story is bizarre. I'm sure you've read it on Deadspin.com by now. Beautifully reported story, albeit a little smug.
My questions are obvious. How complicent was Te'o, the star Notre Dame linebacker, in fabricating the story about the imaginary girlfriend who died a tragic death?
And why would whomever invented the girlfriend do it? What do they get out of it?
I don't understand the appeal of hoaxes elaborate or small, not when they're perpetrated by adults.
I get email from people who make up a name or don't use one. I don't even undersand the appeal of that.
I think you have to sign your name. I think you don't get to make things up.
So maybe I'm bizarre.
