Te'o off-limits to media but not Maxim party

By Associated Press


SAN DIEGO >> The San Diego Chargers are keeping Manti Te'o off-limits to the media — for now.

The star linebacker was barred from speaking with reporters at the Chargers' second open session of organized team activities.

That doesn't mean Te'o isn't out and about.

Maxim confirmed Monday that Te'o attended a party last week in Hollywood after the magazine included his fake girlfriend on its list of the world's hottest women. Rookie coach Mike McCoy says he didn't know Te'o went to the party.

Te'o was part of a girlfriend hoax that drew national headlines. He also had a poor performance in Notre Dame's blowout loss to Alabama in the national championship game.

The best thing he can do is show the fans/media that he can take a joke by going to the party. I look forward to him doing the kiss the fake girlfriend move when he scores a touchdown or makes an interception.

That would be classic! He needs to laugh about it. At his first game he should walk on the field with his arm extanded. That would have everybody rolling. Done! Then he can get back to playing ball.

I think it is great that he shows his sense of humor and laugh at himself. I don't know too many people that can do that.
