Dallas Stars turn poor attendance into humor

NHL’s Dallas Stars poke fun of Manti Te’o

It seems everybody has a Manti Te’o joke to crack these days. The art of Te’oing has also, begrudgingly, become a thing people do as well. The concept is simple, in that a guy poses with his invisible girlfriend and posts the picture of the fictitious couple on the Internet for all to have a good laugh about. It’s one thing for regular Joes to do it, but what about when an...

But here...
