NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – By now we all know about the Manti Te’o story.
His girlfriend wasn’t real, therefore she didn’t really die of leukemia. Whether or not he was somehow involved in the hoax has been a hot subject of debate, though Notre Dame and Te’o insist he was the victim of a cruel, elaborate ruse.
Deadspin.com broke the story Wednesday afternoon. And if you’re eager to commemorate the biggest story of the young year, here’s something for your calendar.
The Florence Freedom of the independent Frontier League has announced a Manti Te’o Girlfriend Bobblehead night set for May 23.
“This will be the best kind of bobblehead a fan could get,” general manager Josh Anderson said in the team’s press release. “Because now fans can make the bobblehead out to be whatever they want it to be.”
That’s right, the first 1,000 baseball fans through the gates will receive an empty box.
That’s not all.
From the Freedom’s official website: “To add to the imaginary fun, section 115 will be blocked and reserved only for fans to sit with their imaginary friends, girlfriends/boyfriends or spouses. There will also be a make pretend kiss cam, air guitar contest and an imaginary food fight outside the Airheads Kids Zone.”
So there you have it. “Te’oing” taken to another level.
Tasteless or really funny? You decide in the comments…
