Even the Dallas Stars are getting in on the Manti Te’o fake girlfriend fun. During the third period of the team’s season-opening game on Saturday, cameras in the arena flashed to an empty chair in section 125 and showed it on the jumbotron. The caption was: “Manti Te’o’s girlfriend welcome to the game!”
When the Te’oing trend was established, the invisible girlfriend jokes were pretty funny. Maybe the Stars got some laughs out of this, but it won’t be long before this humor gets old. Unfortunately for Te’o, I don’t think he’ll hear the end of them for years.
