Flash Back Friday: Manti Te’o

This is definitely the most irrelevant post in Gardens Website history but I just had to do it. I came across this old mash up video of the Manti Te’o and Katie Couric interview. This is easily my favorite sports story of all time and one of my favorite YouTube videos.

Honestly can’t wait for the Manti Te’o 30 for 30 to be released in 25 years. It’s going to be the greatest 30 for 30 of all time. ESPN should almost release it in theatres only. Screw playing it on cable television.

This is such a chaotic story. The guy is a legend. I think my first conversation with the Irish Man was about Manti. No one knows what the hell actually happened. Did he actually get trolled on the Internet? Did he make it up? Is he gay?


Here’s my prediction. No doubt Manti is gay. He knew he was going to be a Heisman finalist, a first round pick, and he was attending a religious university. No way he could of came out of the closet.

Manti knew that he couldn’t go through school at Notre Dame without hooking up with a girl or having a girlfriend so what would you do if you were gay in his spot? You would have to make it up. Unfortunately for Manti he went a little overboard and the lie just got out of hand. I mean saying she died? Come on Manti.

The best part of Manti’s interview with Katie Couric was definitely when she asked him, “You’re the BMOC (Big Man On Campus), why wouldn’t you want a real girlfriend? That you can spend real time with. Are you gay?” How can you watch that and not crack up.

Manti’s response is classic, “Far from it. Far from it.” That is hands down one of the biggest lies of all time. It’s up there with Hillary Clinton and Benghazi.

Fake Girlfriend Gate will always be the GOAT sports story. Too bad we will have to wait 25 years to hear what actually happened. Bring back Te’oing.  Manti is so gay.
