The KSR Quiz: Does Your Girlfriend Exist?


Hello, friends. How are you? I want you to know, today, that you’re my true love. And I treasure all the time we’ve spent together. Also, I’m dying of leukemia. Could you have Brian Kelly send me a game ball? Here’s my facebook account name.

Friends, I don’t need to tell you that there’s a lot of talk in the sports world today about the possible inexistence of Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o’s well-publicized and possibly deceased girlfriend Lennay Kekua. You know the story by now. But we here at Kentucky Sports Radio are nothing if not constantly vigilant to your own well-being. We want you to be happy, and live fruitful lives, and win Heisman trophies. That’s why today, as another in a long-running collection of public service announcements to you, our readers, we offer a simple quiz for you to take at your home or workplace to avoid any potential media scandals in a piece we’ll call The KSR Quiz: Does Your Girlfriend Exist? If just one of you realizes that you’ve been the victim of a hoax you may or may not be perpetuating to increase your chances of national publicity, we’ve done our job. Sound good?

    Good stuff.Using the Te’o method of courtship I can keep my wife and have a ‘girl friend’ too. #9 The horse isn’t dead until Manti confesses to being over-rated as a player and as a team.

    The truth about Te’o’s dead fake girlfriend is that she dumped him – for Clint Eastwoods empty chair! (Heard this one at work!)

    I wonder if there was a memorial fund set up for his “dead” girlfriend. If so, who got the money. This would be considered fraud, if he was receiving the money wouldn’t this also make him ineligible? I hate N. Dame.

    Hilarious! This story wouldn’t be half as funny if Teo hadn’t acted like such an a$$ when we played Notre Dame in basketball and he was yelling “overrated” right in the players faces. Also didn’t like that they gave him so much camera and microphone time during our game. Can’t say I’m not enjoying this. A lot. Keep ’em coming, please.

    is this really right? I hate being a Debbie downer but this is wrong and the way you all are reacting to a kid who thought someone he was having a relationship with for years died is terrible … What’s funny about that? …. Okay so he lied about meeting a girl, but at the end of the day he’s the victim… Maybe it’s because someone I knew got ” catfished” i can understand how it felt because my buddy hasnt been the same since.. someone like him may never be the same and it’ll possible scar him I know it’s all fun and games but what if all of you guys laughing at him and making fun of him for having a online relationship cause him to commit suicide ( god forbid ). Will it still be funny?

    @17) he knew what was going on. He lied mutiple times himself to decieve the public and he knew the guy that was doing it. He wanted the publicity and the heisman, so he wrote his own personal Nicholas Sparks background stories to warm americas hearts.

    19- According to who though? You? What if he really didn’t know? How about we reserve judgement until something more comes out. Otherwise, all this talk really could be ruining his life.

    #17 – He knew. His dad lied about it multiple times as well. There’s no denying it. The weirdest part is the Arizona fullback that still claims she’s real!

    If he really is the victim, then this is cruel…If he was in on it, then this post is old and tired, cant believe you actually took the time to type this out.

    Maybe we shouldn’t be so rough on Te’o (is that HIS real name anyway?). Ya know, he is in the “special” program at ND. Don’t believe me, check out his course work, it makes UNC athletes blush.

    After you have enjoyed the humor with this story about the dead fake girl friend we may realize he is on to something. Would not all of our lives benefitted from a few fake girl friends instead of all the problems we have had with real girl friends.

    #26 – My wife would rather I have a ‘real’ girlfriend, that way she would know I still liked women and was a typical crappy husband. Now, if she found out I had a ‘fake’ girlfriend, and went as far with the story as Manti, she’d have me committed, and divorse me and take all my stuff.

    For everyone that say to stop beating a dead horse, this story broke yesterday, make you’re complaint a month from now. Is anyone really surprised that everyone is taking up for this dude? We all know that these “journalist” aren’t going to admit they were too swept up in the story to do their due dilligence and ND is just saving face until the truth comes out. Nobody likes it when the golden boy turns out to be a d bag.
