Alabama QB Gets Katherine Webb While ND’s Linebacker Has An On-Line Fake
Alabama’s A.J. McCarron apparently schooled Manti Te’o worse than 42-14 in the BCS National Championship game.
He schooled him in dating, as well. Can the differences in Alabama and Notre Dame be measured not just in the final score of the game but in the girlfriends of the stars of the two teams? Apparently.
The first thing Te’o should have done after the game was approach McCarron and ask him for dating tips.
“How did you meet her?” “How did you approach her?” “Can you give me some pointers?”
Because, apparently, Te’o needs all the help he can get in that area.
McCarron’s girlfriend is real. Real nice, actually. Katherine Webb captured the eye of the cameras– and the heart of Brent Musburger – while Te’o’s girlfriend, is fake. Doesn’t exit. She’s an Internet fantasy.
How can a girlfriend be fake? You’re the star player at Notre Dame, a Heisman Trophy finalist, the key player on a 12-0 team that was ranked #1 in the nation and played for the National Championship.
Yet you met your “girlfriend” through the Internet (specifically Twitter)?
Te’o claims he was the victim of a hoax, but the possibility has been raised that he himself created her and made up the story about her dying of leukemia for publicity. I have to question those who were interviewing Te’o about her; did they suddenly forget their reporting skills? At some point in the interview, someone, somewhere along the line, should have asked him the most basic basic question: “Where did you two meet?”
If I were doing an interview and Te’o said “on line” – which would lead to the inevitable follow-up of asking if he had actually met her face-to-face and were they in fact dating, to which answers to both would have been “no” – I would put have down the pen and paper (or cut the camera taping were I doing a TV interview) and say “well gee, this is a sad tale, but it’s not a story. She’s not your girlfriend.”
I would also be tempted to look into his closet to see if he had a blow-up doll. Just to see if he was two-timing on his on-line “girlfriend.”
On line and Internet dating is not the same as having a girlfriend. A girlfriend is someone you go to movies and dinner with, whom you laugh and cuddle with, with whom you have sex. She is not someone you’ve never met in person that, frankly, in today’s world may or may not exist.
And, in the case of Te’o, she indeed did not exist.
Wonder what Brent Musburger would say about that?
