Manti Te'o

Hockey Team Pokes Fun

at Girlfriend Hoax

1/20/2013 9:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0120_manti_scoreboardManti Te'o has been the butt of jokes since the fake-dead-girlfriend hoax was revealed this week ... but now even an NHL team is getting in on the act.

The Dallas Stars flashed an empty seat on the big screen during their opening night game on Saturday, with the caption, "Manti Te'o's girlfriend -- Welcome to the game!"

The team even tweeted about it, saying, "Our cameras at AAC are sharp! They just caught Manti Te'o's girlfriend in section 125 on the jumbotron!"

Ouch.

Joke's over a while ago. When all these pathetic athletic teams try to do a night of it, it's even more pathetic. You won't see the winning and classy teams trying this garbage.
