Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o has recently found himself in the midst of controversy related to his frequent invocation of a girlfriend who, it turned out, didn't exist. In fact, it seems Te'o may have been fooled by certain unscrupulous characters who led him on in this internet-based relationship.
But let's think about this. If you're reading this, you're visiting a blog that makes things up about the Yankees and calls that 'news coverage'. This means you long ago ran out of real news coverage to read. Clearly you have nothing better to do. So, and please correct me if I'm far off, I'm guessing you not only have any number of fake/imaginary girlfriends, but you've probably spent a fair amount of time pretending to be some woman you're not on the internet.
So let's not judge the young man too harshly. He does, after all, sustain concussions for a living.
