While the video at the end of this post won’t clear up any opinions you had over this whole Manti Te’o situation, it will give you a good laugh.
Here are my thoughts of this messed up situation:
As this whole Manti Te’o situation slowly starts to fizzle out, I must say that I’m still very much confused with the whole situation. It’s a very, very, weird situation, one that will come around once in a blue moon. The Katie Couric interview cleared nothing up, it just confused me even more. The Dr. Phil interview with Manti’s hoaxer, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, also didn’t clear anything up. All I got out of it was that Tuiasosopo actually fell in love with Te’o at some point in the hoax… Weird.
I just don’t understand how someone can be that naive. Being 22-years-old should not be an excuse, he’s been on this earth long enough to realize and figure out what a hoax is. He went to Notre Dame no less, a prestigious school with great academics. Yes, he might be an athlete so he doesn’t have the same standard of excellence as a student at Notre Dame, but he still has to reach the standard for student athletes there (Let me add that he’s going through the Notre Dame Curriculum). Therefore he can’t be a stupid kid. There’s something fishy here, something wrong. I can’t point out what it is, but I have to say I don’t quite believe Te’o.
