The Dallas Stars Showed An Empty Chair On The Jumbotron, Identified It As "Manti Te'o's Girlfriend"

Like SNL, half of minor league baseball, and Mets GM Sandy Alderson, the Dallas Stars had some fun with the Manti Te'o story yesterday. During their home-opener (a 4-3 win over the Phoenix Coyotes) the stadium's jumbotron operators spotted an empty seat and, in a mash-up of old Clint Eastwood empty-chair jokes and new Manti Te'o non-existent girlfriend jokes, welcomed Lennay Kekua to the game. Good for her. She needs to get out more.
