Manti Te’o’s Fake Dead Girlfriend Lennay Kekua Won ESPN’s March Madness Bracket Challenge

Last night the Louisville Cardinals beat the Michigan Wolverines to take home the 2013 NCAA Men’s Basketball National Championship. In the process, they brought to a close tens of thousands of March Madness pools around the world, including ESPN’s Bracket Challenge. So who won the $10,000 gift card to Best Buy?

Oh, just the fake dead girlfriend of Manti Te’o, one Lennay Kekua.

Yeah, I bet you thought you’d never hear about that again, did you? Well, it turns out that the person who won ESPN’s bracket contest, a guy named Craig Gilmore, named his bracket “Lennay Kekua’s entry,” apparently just to further haunt poor Manti from the fake grave.

Sorry about that. We weren’t looking to do any more Manti Te’o stories, but how could we pass this one up?

To win the ESPN contest, the fake fake dead girlfriend of Manti Te’o had to make a number of impressive picks. Not only did he have the matchup and the outcome of the title game right, but he also had three of the Final Four teams, plus Florida Gulf Coast’s shocking upset over #2 Georgetown.

Here’s his entire bracket:

Yeah, if you played ESPN’s Bracket Challenge, you got beat by a fake fake dead girl.  How does that feel?
