    Manti Te'o Girlfriend Bobblehead day

    Florence Freedom ballclub to have Manti Te'o Girlfriend Bobblehead Day - ESPN

    This is great.

    I love that ESPN asks the question "Is it too soon?"

    Too soon for who? Are we still mourning the dead girl who never existed? Or the player who was duped by/in on the whole fiasco?

    It is too soon, someone that didn't exist didn't die not long ago, we shouldn't be making light of that terrible event that didn't happen.

    Agreed. When imaginary people die, it is no laughing matter. Imaginary people are people, too.

    Imaginary people with imaginary dreams and aspirations, imaginary families, and apparently real boyfriends.

    Exactly. Just because she wasn't real doesn't mean that the pain isn't real.
    Have a heart, people. He's just a man. What more can we ask?

    I had a thought on Manti's girlfriend this morning. But it was probably nothing.

    Re: Manti Te'o Girlfriend Bobblehead day

    I don't understand how this promotion is going to attract anyone? Yeah they will get publicity, but is someone going to go to the game because of it? I think most people are sickened by the whole thing, regardless of if he knew or not. I don't see many people wanting anything to do with it, especially when the reward is a empty box. Throw in something tangible and maybe it might attract someone, but I think most people want to know the truth and then have the whole matter disappear.

    Not sure if any publicity really is good publicity in this case.

    most people are sickened? I don't think so. Amused/fascinated? Much closer. Still, I agree it's not something that I think would draw a lot of people.

    Re: Manti Te'o Girlfriend Bobblehead day

    This is hilarious I doubt it is meant to get people to buy more tickets but if we are talking about it on Cyclonefanatic than it served it's purpose.... free publicity. Genius. They have other funny things going on, fake kiss cam, air guitar contest... I think it's great.

    Friend says Ronaiah Tuiasosopo confessed to Manti Te'o girlfriend hoax - ESPN

    If he really didn't know, am I the only one that thinks some of this stuff is kind of mean? The late night guys were joking about it and all, some of it not particularly funny. I'm guessing at least the other people this guy did this too won't be the subject of all this ridicule. Of course, they also didn't get all of the positive attention.
