Manti Te’o is feeling the love in San Diego. And, this time, it’s real.

In Washington, David Amerson is feeling DeAngelo Hall’s pain. But, that’s a good thing.

Brian Banks is the feel-good story of NFL training camps. And Eddie Lacy may have shown up in Packers’ camp looking like Fat Albert but head coach Mike McCarthy isn’t complaining.

True, it’s only the first week of NFL training camps, but the good times are rolling for rookies.

Te’o was involved in one of the more bizarre tales last season when it was discovered his internet girlfriend was A) Not a girl, B) Never really existed, and C) Embarrassed, he prevaricated — if not outright lied — about the situation. Then, D) his Notre Dame team got steam-rolled 42-14 in the national championship game.

Speculation was that cloud would hang over his pro career. But the Chargers moved up to the second round to take the Heisman Trophy runner-up.

So far, it’s been a trip through Happy Valley.
