By now you've undoubtedly been swept up by the compelling, confusing and convoluted story of Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o and the deceased love of his life that never was.
Deadspin broke the story yesterday, recounting how numerous national publications, such as The New York Times were duped by this story, teaching us all a valuable lesson taught in Journalism 101: "even if your mother says she loves you, go back and double-check."
If you perused Twitter between the hours of 4 pm and midnight yesterday, there was no escaping it. It was fun to see everyone pretend as if they were suddenly experts in football, espionage and deception. Naturally, some of the NHL's most candid players gave us their thoughts on the matter, stirring the pot even further.no comments
