Real Tweets from Real (?) People – The Manti Te’o Hoax

Deadspin dropped one of the biggest bombs the sports world may have ever seen with the article by Tim Burke and Jack Dickey on Manti Te'o's girlfriend who passed away earlier this season being an elaborate hoax.  We're way too early in this story to know what the reprecussions will be for Te'o or Notre Dame, but it has stunned the sports world in a way like few stories have.  Already Notre Dame has come out and said Te'o is a victim in the scheme.  I can't remember seeing my Twitter timeline filled with every single person talking about the same story like this before.  The Heisman Trophy runner-up, one of the most popular and most well respected players in all of sports… having a relationship with an imaginary girlfriend?  Then drawing inspiration from her staged death?  It has to be real because nobody could conjure up fiction this unbelievable.  So what does the sports world have to say about the most mysterious hoax its ever seen?  As always these are Real (?) Tweets from Real (?) People…
