It didn’t take long for the San Diego media to start poking fun at Manti Te’o. San Diego Union-Tribune editorial cartoonist Steve Breen released this cartoon as a way to welcome Manti to San Diego. This cartoon is hilarious and I don’t see the Lennay Kekua jokes going away for Manti any time soon.
Manti will be wearing #50 for the Chargers and he is very excited about joining the team:
“I think it’ll all start to kick in when I see my jersey and my helmet in my locker,” Te’o said. “To see that bolt on that helmet, I think that’s when it’ll finally hit me that I’m playing for the San Diego Chargers (and) I’m fulfilling a lifelong dream.”
