This is one of the more bizarre sports stories of all time
At the pressers, Wrecks can promise us SB victories and Teo can tell us he playing while seeing his girlfriend in heaven. And Tebow can be there saying he is doing it for Jesus. And Woody can walk in saying that he is Jesus. And the Chize can just butt fumble.
Hey we ain't going to a SB in 2013 so let us have a circus.
As long it is under the salary cap, Goodell will not intervene to put us out of our misery.

Lennay Kekua – Manti Te’o's Fake, Dead Girlfriend – Was Real, Says Arizona Cardinals Fullback Reagan Mauia, Who Claims to Have Met Her
Reagan Mauia, a fullback on the Arizona Cardinals, has added another layer to the impossible-to-believe Manti Te’o fake girlfriend/hoax story. He talked to ESPN:
“This was before her and Manti,” Mauia said Wednesday evening. “I don’t think Manti was even in the picture, but she and I became good friends. We would talk off and on, just checking up on each other kind of thing. I am close to her family. When she was going through the loss of her father, I was — I offered a comforting shoulder and just someone to bounce her emotions off. That was just from meeting her in Samoa.”
Mauia said Tuiasosopo — whom Mauia believes is Kekua’s cousin — introduced the two. After the initial meeting, Mauia said he met her at an “after-party” for all of the athletes involved in the camp.
“She was tall,” he said. “Volleyball-type of physique. She was athletic, tall, beautiful. Long hair. Polynesian. She looked like a model … ”
He said it is his understanding that Kekua’s mother is operating her Twitter account. He said he’d never met her mother. When told by a reporter that she apparently might not have existed, Mauia said “No, she is real.”
So she’s real? Or was real? And died? How?
Notre Dame says Te’o was duped. Te’o said he’s been the subject of an elaborate hoax. Notre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick has put his reputation on the line and gone on TV to say Te’o was duped. Deadspin searched far and wide and found no mention of her, ever.
Which leaves us … who knows where.
"The medium is the message"..."the medium is the massage"...is how Marshall McLuhan would describe this whole Te'o Saga, that the media has been nourishing.
For the message is a reflection of the messenger itself.
I've long ago lost my innocence...and sometimes my stomach, trying to digest the " truths" cooked up by media driven agenda's.
Whatever the media was over a century or so ago...they've now taken on too often a Faustian nature...as different facets of the Devil itself. With plenty of individuals like Lance Armstrong or Manti Te'o, willing to be seduced...in selling their souls...to make their ambitious dreams come true.
Media will take some facts...half truths...and a pack of lies...and spin them to pied pipe the message they want. And have us all singing the tunes they want to hear.
Media will sell ya any sh!t you wanna hear...
But in the end...this media as we experience it for our NYJ...and on every other matter...is another indication that...
What's the big deal? I know lots of Giants fans with fake girlfriends.
