Manti Te'o's fake girlfriend makes Maxim Hot 100 List

Will this be the type of story that makes Chargers fans wish their hometown team could go back to being an afterthought?


Coming in at #69 on the Maxim Hot 100 List is further proof that the ridiculous Catfish hoax perpetrated against (by?) Manti Te'o is still a story nationally. The local San Diego media might not be able to talk to Manti alone and they are generally willing to let the story die a nice, quiet death, but that's the San Diego media. Maxim, for those not familiar, is a men's magazine known for its non-nude pictorials of various semi-famous to famous attractive women. They are not in the business of writing about sports and thus their shot at Te'o is somewhat more remarkable, though still not particularly clever or funny. The "bio" for the fake girlfriend reads:

After Manti Te'o's fake girlfriend hoax of 2012, we think it might be nice to have an invisible girl of our own to love. Why not? She's got a ton of great qualities, including looking awesome in a bikini.

Rating women that don't exist is probably slightly more credible than their rating albums they haven't listened to, at least. The point, Chargers fans, is that this isn't going away. I hope you're ready to hear about this over and over again for a very long time.
