haha.  its totally strange.  

 

 

According to Tuiasosopo's lawyer...

Quote:
“Come on, Hollywood does it all the time,” Grimes said Wednesday. “People can do that.”
 
Tuiasosopo’s résumé includes vocal and dramatic training. He was president of his high school drama club, performs with a Christian band and auditioned last year for the TV talent show “The Voice.”

And the hits keep on coming.  Tuiasosopo fell in love with Te'o.

 

 

 

Quote:

In an interview with Dr. Phil scheduled to air Thursday and Friday, Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, the mastermind of the hoax that ensnared Te'o for several years, spoke publicly for the first time about a story that has captured national attention and  admitted that he fell "deeply, romantically in love"with Te'o over the course of the scam.

"I asked him, straight up, was this a romantic relationship with you?" Dr. Phil McGraw said on NBC'sToday. "And he says, 'yes.' I then said, are you then, therefore, gay? He says, 'Well, when you put it that way, yes.' And then, he caught himself and said, 'I am confused.'"

However, Tuiasosopo emphatically denied that Te'o was in any way involved with the scam. He noted that while Te'o and "Lennay Kekua" would "break up," Tuiasosopo himself would find a way to reunite them: "There were many times where Manti and Lennay had broken up, but something would bring them back together, whether it was something going on in his life or in Lennay's life, in this case in my life."

Tuiasosopo still contends that it's his voice on the famous voicemail recordings, not a cousin. That may be the only mystery still left in this story, one which has now reached its natural end.

The sad part is I bet Te'o is all types of happy this dude fell in love with him because he is now officially off the hook and draft status won't take a huge knock.

 

I also heard the VM on Rome and it did definitely sound like a girl to me...

Teams value intelligence in a player.

 

A) That test sets an awfully low bar for "intelligence."

B) Just because they test that you're not a complete dolt doesn't mean that they assign much value to not being a complete dolt.

 

I've never heard of a player being dramatically shifted in draft position due to his intelligence.

Claiborne scored a 4/50 and still went 6 overall.

Don't laugh, but on the phone, that is really easy for me to believe.  I used to take solicitors phone calls at my parents house during high school/college and having them ask me if my husband was home. d1_bigcry.gif

I'm glad I could brighten your day! c2_beer.gif

 

The only reason it probably doesn't continue to happen is because of caller ID.  Plus, I think callers aren't discriminatory anymore, and don't need to speak to "the man of the house."

He's supposed to do the "voice" tomorrow on Dr. Phil.  It's sad that this and deer antler spray are the biggest stories in sports during Super Bowl week.
