There is nothing worse than an overplayed joke. Remember back in like 2007 when every other sentence out of everybody’s mouth was “that’s what she said?” I think it might have been the most unfunny year of my life. People were beating a horse that was already six feet under.
Having said that, is it weird that I think a Manti Te’o girlfriend night is kind of funny? Because that’s exactly what the Florence Freedom, an independent team out of Kentucky, decided to do. Specifically, they’re giving away a Lennay Kekua bobblehead that, of course, is just an empty box. During the game, they’re having a pretend kiss cam, an air guitar competition, an imaginary food fight, and if you decide to bring an imaginary friend or date, there’s a designated section you can sit in. I like all that. I can get into all that. I have like twenty imaginary girlfriends (actually, they’re real people, they just don’t know that we’re dating yet). So seeing a game with Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Watson, Jessica Alba and Mila Kunis doesn’t sound like such a bad thing. Might even get to pretend kiss them. I’m on board. Just please don’t ask me to participate in the air guitar competition. I wouldn’t want to embarrass my date.
