    Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax

    This is so sad, and at the same time so strange. Was he in on the hoax? Is it possible to be in a relationship for that long but never actually see the person? It doesn't seem "doable" to me, but I'm from a different generation t han Manti Te'o. If the girlfriend was not a real person, who was he exchanging phone calls and online contacts with? And why would the person posing as the girlfriend do such a thing? Strange.

    Truly bizarre no matter how you look at it, though I've heard nothing but snippets here and there from listening to sports radio during my short commute.

    It is all very, very strange, and sad for him. I imagine the perpetrators got a kick out of "fooling" him, but really, you'd think someone's conscience would have kicked in before it went on as long as it did!
