Skip to comments.At Notre Dame, a fake tragedy gets more tears than a real one
Posted on 01/18/2013 4:14:45 AM PST by Bratch
So many tears for a fake dead girl, but none for a real one.
The death of Notre Dame football star Manti Teos beautiful, brave girlfriend Lennay Kekua widely reported by Sports Illustrated, CBS and many other media outlets was all either an elaborate hoax or worse.
And in response, my alma mater held the kind of emotional news conference for the fake dead girl they never held for the real one, Lizzy Seeberg.

Im sincerely sorry for all my Notre Dame friends who told me they were looking past the way our school treated Lizzy Seeberg and other women in no small measure because Teo was the real deal and represented what Notre Dame is really all about.
Turns out, they were right.

The real question is how many idiots voted for this guy to get the Heisman Trophy....over the fake girlfriend story? That begs to be answered.
ROLL TIDE! ! ! !
How does the author know that the fake girlfriend was beautiful?
There were images of a fairly beautiful woman that the media had used for the girlfriend stories (apparently used without her knowledge.)
As well as being a mediocre linebacker propped up by low information adoring reporters. Solely because he played for Notre Dame.
The nation's #1 team that entered a championship game as a double digit underdog.
Guess who had their heads up their butts? Media voters. Certainly not the oddsmakers.
Wonder if the presstitutes will ever discover we have a fake president?
I know, I know, that’s a racist thing to say
Has Bent Pussberger made any comments, yet?
She wasn’t fake, she was a composite.
Give the hunchback the pigskin.
Only if she was a former Miss Alabama.

HOW in the world can you believe anything this writer has to say?
She is ‘going along’ with the made up girlfriend AFTER THE FACT.
I realize that if you(I) publicly state “I don’t believe the media”, shouldn’t be able to ‘quote the media’ BUT on last nights news (NBC4 WASHDC) it was reported HE continued this ruse ate the Heisman ceremony and award....Granted I didn’t hear his ‘quote’ etc -he may have cited it was fake but still had an affect on him ‘mentally’” but the way I understood it, it was a casual conversation and he made no effort to straighten the situation out, although it had been known by him and ND to be fake at an earlier date.
And the poster that questioned how many votes resulted in this ‘tragedy’ is correct, I cite the fact that a certified liar, egoist etc was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize and Man of the Year for actually accomplishing nothing.
A Catholic university that rolls out the red carpet for all the abortion lovers in Obama world.
Why is anyone shocked at the scandals?
As your beautiful, brave reply doesn't recognize, she's employing biting sarcasm.
Now, now... if you're going to make up a girlfriend, why on Earth would you make one up that was ugly?
Alabama running backs as a group have issued a press release saying they question whether Manti Te’o actually existed.
How about the way ND swept Declan Sullivan under the rug? He was the student assistant sent up in a scissorlift in gale force winds to video football practice. He died when the lift fell over. Heads should have rolled for that one, up to and including the football coach.
Post of the day!
At least Alabama players have real girlfriends.
Let’s Ask Obama About His Made-Up Girlfriends
The msm is all over fake girlfriends and Moochelle’s new wig but can’t bother reporting real news as our country is swirling down the you know what.

Shame on them times three. http://www.fightingirishthomas.com/2010/12/dont-gyp-gipper-christmas-wish-for.html
ROLL TIDE! ! ! !
I have two Notre Dame tshirts ("Notre Dame Fighting Irish") but ever since Obama spoke there and demanded that all crosses and crucifixes be covered while he was there AND "ND" DID IT!
So I guess "Roll Tide" is a possibility. Who else can I can on now?!
UT or UH is a possibility...I guess.
Amen. ND cut themselves loose from their anchor and have drifted with the prevailing winds into the rocky shoals.
Liar extraordinaire, too!
“Te’o is gay..This was a scam he started to try and make him appear straight”
I thought this 5 minutes after I heard the story. My Mom asked me about this story last night. That’s exactly what I told her.
The First Wookie has a new wig.
Expensive, I sure.
Tax paid for...hmmmmmm....
Can’t we find something more important to talk about, like Michele O’s new hairstyle?
she’s employing biting sarcasm
== = = = = = = = = = = = =
Maybe so, BUT seeing as how she works for the Washington Post, I might be forgiven for doubting it.
"It's Rolling, Baby, It's Rolling!"
Has a shamrock on it, and the words:
PLAY LIKE YOU HAD A FAKE GIRLFRIEND DIE LAST NIGHT
They've sold more than 3000
