According to Manti they met after the ND Stanford game something to do with "soulful eyes." If you think about it logistically, they would need to place the girl in the exact right position in the stadium, with the exact right timing to catch Manti's attention. Then they would have to exchange phone numbers and start a relationship. Anyone who has ever done that with a girl in college knows the difficulties involved. The "hoaxers" would have had the greatest plant in all of "hoax" history.
Here is the thing I can't wrap my head around. My 85 year old grandma knows little to nothing about technology but can facetime. My in-laws frequently use skype, they used skype 3 years ago to communicate with my sister-in-law who was adopting a child in China. Skype is $20 for a web cam and then free after that. Why in the world would you carry on a long distance relationship and not use the technology at your fingertips to communicate while viewing each other?
Then you his father reporting that the two met in Hawaii, but Manti saying he lied to his father because of embarrassment. First of all if the love of your life is flying into Hawaii wouldn't you pick her up at the airport? Wouldn't you be pissed if she traveled to Hawaii and didn't see you? Wouldn't that raise an alarm?
If Manti's story is true then in the Webster Dictionary his name should be listed as the definition of gullible.
I have some vague idea of what facetime is. Same with Skype. Couldn't do either to save my own life if I had to.
How do we know he's not Mel Torme?
