This guy just gave NFL fans another reason to hate his guts. According to NFL.com, Te'o attended a hollywood party honoring Te'o's fake girlfriend, Lennay Kekua's inclusion in the Maxim Hot 100 (which was originally intended to be a shot at Te'o by Maxim's editor-in-chief, Dan Bova). Also according to NFL.com, when Bova thanked Te'o for coming, Te'o smiled and said "Are you kidding me? This is great."
While NFL.com is angling the story as Te'o laughing at the joke and trying not to be distracted by the publicity, it seems to me that this is nothing more than a chance for Te'o to show how much he loves being in the spotlight. It also plainly shows that he doesn't have any remorse for the incident. Maybe you all have a different opinion of this (a lot of you might), but I just think Te'o only further damaged his credibility (whatever he has left of it) by going to this party.

"Do you know what an expert is? An expert is someone who doesn't have to back up what he is saying." - Chuck Noll
Who hates his guts? I certainly don't. I would agree though that whatever the truth is, and we'll probably never know, that he is not all there. Spotlight? He didn't throw the party. But gotta say, it seems a bit ridiculous why Maxim would include the fake GF in the top 100 in the first place, much less throw a party in her honor, unless they contacted him and he agreed to be part of this stunt. I mean it's not all that funny, or is it? Just seems like more weirdness to me.
I'm an Irish fan. And a big Te'o fan. But I gotta say he is really putting himself in a bad spot. If he doesn't play very very well he is screwed. Whether he did was the media says or not he is in the spotlight now and he's not trying to get out. They will scrutinize him on every down this season.

This is actually a good move. A lot of people say that he needs to show that he is moving on from this hoax by putting himself in a good position to laugh at himself and by showing up at this party, that is exactly what he is doing. He's not stirring up trouble and he isn't taking the joke lying down. He's admitting that he is working on moving on from the situation and enjoying a good laugh at his own expense.
If I met A.J. Smith and Norv Turner in real life, I'd give them the finger.
