What´s Next for the
Manti Te´o Story

Atlantic, by Connor Simpson

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/27/2013 5:11:35

We´ve heard from duped Notre Dame star Manti Te´o himself. We´re going to hear from the accused mastermind, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, next week. What´s next in this strange, beautiful and truly weird adventure? (Snip)But is it that much a stretch to believe a guy carrying on a long relationship with a girl who was apparently suffering from cancer never gave her money, or bought her gifts, or tried to pay for something? Medical bills are expensive. No flowers? No teddy bears with hearts? No get well chocolates? Come on, son.

Comments:
A healthy young man, accustomed to a lot of attention, would have been anxious to meet up with her, no?

His explanation was even more bizarre and twisted than the accusation.By the time draft day arrives,all will be forgiven though.Dennis Rodman was a board certified nut who played for years.My guess is he goes to the Bills.

Who cares? Our country is going to hell, and this is what we´re worried about. This has gotten more play from the msm then Benghazi.

Te´o ought to go to ground and shut up. The more he talks, the more he looks complicit in a hoax.

One season with the Raiders. He´s injured in the third game of the season. Out for at least a year.
Everyone loses interest, in droves. He´s last heard complaining to his new love interest, "Chad...I don´t wike my oatmeal fis wumpy!"

Enough already. Who cares unless he is throwing the games? The MSM has spent more time on him than on Benghazi or even Hillary´s "illness". THe MSM is getting more and more like Entertainment Tonight and the National Enquirer. It is one way to suppress the real news less it harm their idol, Barack Hussain Obama.

Revealed as a hoax prior to the Heissman award.

He knew at that time yet he continued on with the lie.

Notre Dame knew as well and kept quiet.

Notre Dame is guilty of pimping out Te´o for the Heisman, which would have made Notre Dame look good to alums, donors, football recruits.
I consider them much more guilty than one mentally disturbed lad. And Notre Dame also pimped out the abortionist in chief.

Finally, the name Brian Bosworth comes to mind. He was a zero, but captured media attention for a few years. Mostly for his haircut.

Saying that he did it to win the Heisman doesn´t make sense. This was going on long before he had any idea he would be Heisman-eligible. Long before anyone could have guessed ND would be 12-0. The story is crazy but it´s crazy to say that his accomplishments on the field were fake too. They weren´t and ND and Te´o´s performance at the BCS game would have likely been better if this hadn´t been hanging over their heads. The truth should have been told by Te´o and by ND when they knew and they could have gone into the championship game without the guilt. As Catholics, they should have known the power of a good Confession!

Te´o is mormon.
The stunt was going on for a long time, but someone decided it would be a great story if the ´girlfriend´ died from leukemia, in September, 2012, when Heisman hype goes full steam ahead. And she ´died´ the same day his grandmother actually died.
Second post apologies by the way.

Can´t conservatives walk and chew gum at the same time? Can´t we have a little fun? Some of us need to lighten up a bit.

As for the Heisman push, that´s what ND (and every other major school) does. Remember when ND changed the pronunciation of Joe Theisman´s name from Theesman (what he called himself) to have it rhyme with Heisman?

All these cats are donks: Armstrong,teo-Manti, Tuiasosopo and some of the others-the K sisters. If they were GOp there would be court charges against them...
What would those charges be. who knows, but this entire kubuki and distraction would be off the front pages due to the court issues.Some DA would go after.
It might be fraud, creating a nuisance, disturbing the peace/ all these are included charges in other more serious ones.
The Benghazi thing the economy and on are swept under rug.

"Who cares?" is not an acceptable response on this site. The editors care about bringing a cross section of current popular information to our readers. The next "Who cares?" will get the poster blocked. First time we´ve ever said that but it´s time.

If you don´t care, you shouldn´t waste our bandwidth.

Let´s start with the caveats: It’s one poll. It’s from one subsample. It’s not a huge effect. It could easily just be statistical noise. Still, I can’t help noting that a new Wall Street Journal/NBC poll has New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s ratings going up among “Core Republicans” following the terrible publicity he received from the bridge scandal. In October 32 percent had a favorable view of him; now he’s up to 42 percent with positive feelings (via the always invaluable Political Wire). If true (and again: see caveats above), it’s a fascinating finding, confirming that for at least some non-trivial group

ASHTYR, Russia -- If any one place embodies the allegations of corruption, abuse, and alarming human cost of the Sochi Olympics, it´s here. Ashtyr, a tiny, impoverished village in the foothills between the coastal and mountain parks where the upcoming Winter Games will be held, has been used by Olympic planners for its limestone deposits, suffered from the effects of nearby construction, and had its pleas for help ignored. The benefits of the more than $51 billion spent on the Olympics and related infrastructure investments are nowhere to be seen here.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers have been in hot water this week after careful analysis of the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show footage revealed that the band’s instruments weren’t plugged in to anything. Flea, the Peppers’ zany bassist, took to the band’s blog Tuesday evening to explain why they were essentially playing air guitar alongside headliner Bruno Mars. Flea’s explanation: The NFL didn’t want live instruments as part of the show, lest something go wrong with the audio. Instead, the NFL told the Red Hot Chili Peppers they’d have to pre-record the guitar, bass and drum tracks to play behind

WASHINGTON– A lot of people– from needy families in Dallas to small farmers in rural Texas– have been holding their breath for today’s passage of the five-year farm bill. But for Texas’ senators, the long wait wasn’t worth it. Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz both voted against the bill, citing its huge price tag and lack of reforms to programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, known as food stamps. “Unfortunately, this bill is not really a Farm Bill, it’s a Food Stamps bill with some farm provisions,” Cruz said in a statement today. “Instead of locking people into an endless

The Christmases bought 35 acres between Centreville and Woodville in December 2003. The land had previously been used for hunting and timber and was not occupied when they bought it.

“There is no place in the movement for the white liberal.

Most of the people I did know (i.e., other white people) didn’t know many black people either. One, maybe two, was the norm. I asked one white guy I knew if he had any black friends, and he replied, “You mean ones that aren’t on television?” I wanted to know why integration—actual, genuine integration—had failed

But now, three years and $500 million into the federal Healthy Food Financing Initiative, there´s a problem: A study suggests it´s not working. Adding supermarkets to areas with short supplies of fresh produce does not lead to improvements in residents´ diets or health outcomes, according to a report published Monday in the February issue of Health Affairs.

Washington - Americans overwhelmingly favor a bill that would give most undocumented immigrants a pathway towards citizenship, according to a new national poll. And a CNN/ORC International survey also indicates that a majority of the public says that the government´s main focus should be legalizing the status of the undocumented rather than border security. The poll was released Thursday, the same day that House Speaker John Boehner signaled any action on immigration is unlikely this year because House Republicans don't trust President Barack Obama on the issue.

House committees are still digging into the IRS political targeting scandal, and based on a hearing Wednesday there´s more to learn. The day produced more evidence blowing apart President Obama´s claims that there was "not even a smidgen of corruption" or political motivation in the IRS handling of groups applying for tax-exempt status. Mr. Obama wants Americans to believe that the targeting resulted from the confusing tax law governing nonprofits, which he says was "difficult" to interpret and resulted in mere "bureaucratic" mistakes.
