Well, holy fucking shit. That sound you hear is Lance Armstrong breathing a giant sigh of relief that the eyes of the sporting world have been diverted elsewhere.
Deadspin has just published a very long, very bizarre report that the well-publicized story of Manti Te’o’s girlfriend – the one who reportedly died of leukemia – never existed at all.
It raises all sorts of questions. First, is it true? Was Te’o in on it? Why would anyone do something like this? And perhaps most importantly, what now?
Give it a read. You’ll be absolutely enthralled – and perhaps more than a little bit disturbed.
