We saw this morning what Manti Te'o said to Katie Couric in the big ol' exclusive interview airing on Thursday. Now there's video!
Major takeaway? He's definitely succeeded in working up the tears for proper sympathy, and his cardigan (?) gives him that relatability every viewer still has from growing up with Mr. Rogers. Good calls.
Actually, I don't know. I really don't. I'm just tired of analyzing the behavior of someone who is clearly not working at 100% brain capacity.
Te'o will be fine. Everyone loves a good redemption story, and his decision to go on Katie Couric—who occupies that space between real and softball journalist that he wouldn't find with someone from hard-news "60 Minutes" or no-news "Entertainment Tonight"—was the correct call. Give it a month. He'll still be a first-round NFL Draft choice.
