|In layman's terms: "Now you know you sound like a fool right?"|
Kenny Rogers said it best in The Gambler, “You gotta know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em, know when to walk away, know when to run.” Big Momma was always honest when she said, “Boy sometimes you gotta know when to close yo mouth.” All of the real G’s just said it this way, “Hey bruh, you tryna do way too much pimpin’!”
All Manti Te’o had to do was chill at this point. He’d already done the Jeremy Schaap interview albeit it was a punk move to do it without cameras but at least he said his peace. The great thing about the 24 news cycle is that the joint never ends and all you have to do is be patient and somebody else will do something stupid to let you off of the hook!
Instead of boyz ridin’ Dwight Howard all week they’re back on Manti Te’o. He let his publicist/agent or whatever he/she is railroad him into doing the Katie Couric Show only to get slimed. This dun agreed to sit down on camera because they’re represented by the same person and now he’s added at least two more weeks to this foolishness that he calls a “Hoax.” Kati and the agent/publicist are the only ones that made out here. Manti is looking like an even bigger fool now!
Te’o shows up to the interview with tapes of his voice mails, doin’ way too much, to prove that he got duped! Now we find out that the woman on the other end of the phone that he talked to for hours on end was in fact Ronaiah Tuiasosopo, a dude! Let’s stop right there playa! Let’s pause like a comma and let’s dangle like a participle on that joint!
Now you want me to believe that you talked to a dude for more than 4 months from May to September making more than 1,000 calls that lasted more than 500 hours and this dun never coughed, belched or burst out laughing and never sounded like Lurch from the Adams Family? In my Ochocinco voice, “CHILD PLEASE!”
Sounds like to me Te’o is trying way too hard to cover up the fact that he "may" be gay but the clown on the other end of the phone disguising his voice is for sure. Nobody hollers at someone every freaking night for hours on end acting like a woman just to pull a prank bruh. He was feelin' Manti. So the question is, “Was Manti Te’o feelin' HIM?” Now if he was that’s his business and he's gotta be who he’s gotta be and I know that folks will embrace him either way! Just don’t try to run game on boyz out here because he's making a complete fool of himself trying to prove otherwise.
As of this morning the New York Post is reporting that it was ole boy's female cousin that Te'o was talking to. If we lounge here a little longer it's gonna turn out to be Charlie "freaking" Brown on the other line bruh!
He can’t be that naïve and stupid so he’s got to be lying! That’s like telling me you didn’t cook chitterlings when I walk in the crib because I could smell them down the street. They smell horrible and they stink up the entire house for days bruh! No thanks!! Te’o is like the cat that grew up in the suburbs and was sheltered and is now an undercover agent working Vice in the hood. He’s trying his best to fit in but he just doesn’t know how and is sticking out like Keenen Ivory Wayans' toe in "I'm Gone Git You Sucka.". I completely understand why he won’t just come out and say it because he’ll be ostracized in an NFL locker room if he does.
Here’s the clown that’s always breathing over my shoulder trying to call me out, “Why can’t he be openly gay in an NFL locker room if that’s who he is?” He can be whoever and whatever he wants to be because God loves everybody playa. I’m cool with him being gay but I’m not the problem, the locker room is.
An NFL football locker room isn’t like the real world homeboy. See the real world is very diverse culturally, mentally and socially. The locker room is filled with all of the same type of people that are overly aggressive, testosterone driven and like minded. So therefore, you can’t just role up in the spot and announce that you’re gay and expect that boyz are gonna be OK with it. Is it right? Absolutely not! Is it the truth? Absolutely!
Unfortunately, he doesn’t live in a world of what should be, he lives in a world of what is and that world is FOOTBALL. That game is comprised of the same personalities and is driven by one thing, testosterone and there’s nothing people can do about that unless they’re going to change the name of it and get different types of personalities to play it. Otherwise, coming out in that environment will be virtually impossible to do. On some real talk, that goes for the NBA and MLB too!
It’s not like going to work in the real world because there is so much diversity in thinking and there's always different levels of estrogen and testosterone floating around and most importantly folks don’t shower together on the job. I’m quite sure there are some duns in the league right now that are gay but they aren’t going to let anybody know it because it would have a profound effect on their careers. That’s why we have yet see an active player come out in the league. I feel bad for Te’o because he tried way too hard to cover up the chitterlings when all he had to do was eat, spray and keep it moving instead of lying about cookin' them joints in the first place.
Holla At Ya Boy!
