By now, most people across the nation have heard the story regarding Notre Dame LB Manti Te’o. A highly touted linebacker that played an emotional football game after losing his grandmother and girlfriend to cancer this past fall, as they passed on the same day. The problem is however, as Deadspin.com reports, the girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, never existed. This story broke last night, and while I was going to write something last night, I quite simply did not know what to write. This has to be one of the strangest stories I’ve ever read, it’s simply surreal. I didn’t think anything in the sports world would unseat the Lance Armstrong story, but this one has.
