Now there is the Manti Te'o story. I really still don't know what really happend and don't really care either way. If he was part of it the whole way that says a lot about what kind of person he is. Who makes shit like this up to get publicity (that he would have gotten just from being a great football player)? The latest is that he was tricked but then played along with it after he found out. This also says something about him, but also the guy that did this to him (who also has done it before). Who does that kind of stuff to other people with no real benefit in the end?
Americans is the answer to these questions. We are one messed up society, in and out of sports. I don't know if other places in the world are like this. If so maybe it's unfortunate that the world did not end in December. Sports are my biggest passion and I just want to be able to enjoy watching them without someone talking about how messed up some of the athletes are. I don't really care. I just want to see basketball players dunking on people, baseball players crushing the ball or making a great diving play, football players making a great catch or a big hit, and soccer players scoring terrific goals. No more "inspiring" stories because you have ones ending in Lance Armstrong and Te'o.
