Yikes, let's all hope his dead grandparents actually existed!
Sorry, I couldn't help myself. I'm still obsessed with that Te'o story. I just can't get over it. Manti Te'o is either an amazingly creative liar or just ridiculously stupid. It's probably a bit of both. Since I don't feel sorry for a) stupid people or b) liars, I think the whole thing's kind of funny.
Here are some tweets I sent out after I heard the news. They were probably mildly amusing in the moment. I'm not sure if they aged well or not:
Okay, so I included a tweet about Chip Kelly. And one from our new Fake KFOR Twitter account. I'm not a big fan of parody Twitter accounts. They generally lose steam and fun after a few weeks, but what the Hell, if anything deserves to be parodied it's KFOR's Twitter account.
Here are some others:
Anyway, back to Matt Kemp. I love my grandparents just like anyone, but I think a fitting tribute to them whenever they pass away will be a photograph in my living room and/or occasional flowers on a grave. The life-size chest tattoo? Well, that's just creepy. I don't want to look at them every time I get out of the shower and I don't want to have sex with the lights off for the rest of my life either. Also, what happens when hair grows over his Grandma's face? That's just gross.
Update: Apparently his grandmother is still leaving. My bad. I just assumed they were both dead. Honestly, that makes the tattoo even more bizarre. You don't get tattoos of living people, do you?
