Oakland Raiders fans to taunt Manti Te’o with a Lennay Kekua sign (Photo)


By now, everyone is aware of the Lennay Kekua saga, she was a fictional woman that Manti Te’o was involved in an online relationship with. She passed away in September of 2012 abruptly and Te’o played through the grief. His exceptional performance and overcoming such a tragic set of circumstances became a national story.

The only problem is Lennay Kekua wasn’t a real person. Te’o has been the subject of jokes ever since. As the Chargers head north to take on the Oakland Raiders the ‘black hole’ has a special surprise for Te’o and his dearly departed girlfriend.

This is certainly the most elaborate sign we’ve seen. Lennay Kekua and Manti Te’o have been the but of some jokes on signs on ESPN College GameDay, but nothing quite this elaborate and nothing on the NFL level.

I wonder if the Raiders will let the fans hang this sign, I don’t see a reason why they wouldn’t other than it’s size.

    I think I saw Manti Teo’s girlfriend as a cheerleader at the last chargers game. Yeah she was the palm palms on strings dancing by themselves. Leave it up to the chargers to draft a guy who has an imaginary girlfriend. Maybe he’ll get jealous and think she’s cheating with Philip Rivers.

    And who said the Raider fans were all classless goons.
