News of Manti Te’o Reaches the Samoan Homeland

Mike Cardano, Senior Fantasy Analyst January 17, 2013

Everyone seems to have an opinion on what has happened here. My money is on the fact that Manti Te’o is gay (not that there is anything wrong with that) and that he concocted this entire story to suggest that he is heterosexual. The theory here of course is that he thought that knowledge of him being homosexual might adversely affect his draft status. My guess is that Te’o's father made up the story about Manti and Lennay Kekua spending time together in Hawaii to help Manti cover up. Hey look, my hypothesis is as plausible as anyone else’s…

It will certainly be an interesting day when we find out what the actual truth is here. You can definitely expect the jokes to fly on twitter again. Check out The Pat Mayo Hour to hear some interesting commentary on this topic as this story started to unfold.

Here’s how the topic was covered in Taiwan as the news of Manti Te’o and his imaginary dead fake girlfriend reached his Samoan Homeland.

I just had a reader email me and ask the following… “If it turns out that Manti Te’o is homosexual, do you think he’s the best homosexual inside linebacker of all-time?” You can’t make this stuff up…
