“That’s all I remember. I don’t see anything. I don’t feel anything. It’s absolute, abject terror.

CC Senior Helped Break Manti Te'O Fake Girlfriend Story — Bwog
The suspicion was just regular skepticism over such a tidy, sappy story. I was interested in it because if it were true it would be the nuttiest hoax anyone pulled off in a long time, so I said, “I want to do this story.” Tim, who’s very skilled with social media digging, joined in, and Tommy [Craggs], our editor-in-chief, also joined in, and we all started chasing it together. No, I just thought it would be a cool story if it were true. I didn’t expect it would get this much attention, but I said, “this will be a big story, we should really get a hop on it.”

The climax of the film is at a concert in the Colosseum, which is so much more interesting than suburban America.
