Like a number of Americans obsessed with reality TV, Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith recently found himself drawn to MTV’s Catfish, a program dedicated to showcasing the folks tricked by their fake online girlfriends and boyfriends. Perhaps you’ve heard of it.
It’s pretty much the Manti Te’o’s story over and over.
@torreysmithwr Better be careful. Manti might be your teammate next season.

Smith tweeted that he watched three straight episodes and that he doesn’t “feel sorry for any of them” because “it seems so obvious and dumb every time”. Interestingly enough, Te’o has been linked to the Ravens in several mock drafts, including Sports Illustrated’s.
So in a way, Smith sort of poked fun at a guy who could be his teammate next season. Although to be fair, everyone will be making fun of Te’o when he’s in the NFL.
